I dont often leave reviews and never give five stars but I love this author and she has written the strt of a fantastic storyline. There is a cliffy and the book is short, we've only been given one POV for a third or a quarter of the storyline so hopefully Jay doesnt leave us hanging too long for the next installment. Dont let the short length put you of it is well worth the price fr the quality of the writing. Loved it !
SHE DID IT AGAIN ! I'm not actually sure how to put into words how these books make me feel. I can just say that I have read each of Jay's books, more than once and have the same feeling every single time !
Its so good to have a change in reading material. Everything out there at the moment is all sounding the same. This took me by surprise. Alot of, I didnt see that coming, sort of thing. Im looking forward to the next installment to this story.
So first thing is to be aware that this is book 1 of a series . It ends on a cliff hanger so be prepared to want to read book 2 and probably three right away. Ky is an ex soldier who carries a lot of guilt and emotional baggage. He’s alone and doesn’t have a lot of reasons to be happy about life . He’s suffered a lot of loss in his life and his journey through this book is an emotional one . Madison is a huge mystery . We learn a little bit about her through the story but she’s holding a lot of secrets . Ky falls in love with her anyway. Despite her hesitancy to share her past and really much about herself at all he falls for her and shares himself with her. Which was nice but I can’t help hold back my like for Madison when there is so many questions about her .. and who she’s reporting to and who she is linked to and why she was ‘told’ to act a certain way but we never find out by who ... basically at the end of this book there’s more questions then answers . There’s obviously still a lot more of the story to go . I’m going to jump straight into book too because I’m drawn in I’m intrigued and I’m curious ! A great beginning to the series !
Jay McLean has been on my TBR list for too long. I’m so, so glad I was finally able to read this book. And, hooray, it’s a trilogy. Kyler Parker finds himself in trouble with the law when he lets his anger get the better of him, and his fists do the talking. A returned soldier, he has trouble adjusting to the life he left behind. When he’s offered an opportunity for salvation, justice and revenge, he takes it. He doesn’t have much choice, but doesn’t think too much about what the consequences are for his future. Until he meets a girl called Madison Haynes who appears to have a bitter sweet relationship with the letterboxes in their building. She’s his new neighbour, and she might just be worth more than the revenge he seeks. She might be everything. But who is she? Madison is so intriguing. She’s really kept under wraps and you can feel Ky’s frustration, but also the sense that they understand each other without needing to know much. Ky is that wonderful combination of protective, loyal and tortured. Talk about intriguing and compelling. I loved the flash backs, the way the past and the present slowly piece together bit by bit until you think holy cow, this story is so much bigger than you imagined. The world that Kyler finds himself in is only just starting to reveal itself. So many feelings. I didn’t want this story to end, and thank God it didn’t. There will be two more books in this riveting story. The pages turn themselves! Bring on Redemptive. 5.5 flares. *Review copy generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. * Cheers
I am loving all these books by Jay McLean. This one is no different and it really had me intrigued with the story! I loved the mystery of what was going to happen next, the characters were well written and their pasts interested me. They all have their own secrets and the crazy cliffhanger wow! Cannot wait to read Redemptive to find out more of this story!!
Oh how i was on the edge of my seat all the way. Loved the mystery, it kept me panting all over the story. I seriously poured over every word looking for even the most subtle clues or tells. Got the second installment about to tuck in!
