Review: Redemptive by Jay McLean (Combative #2)
Note: A review copy was provided by the author.
I'd finished reading Combative close to midnight, and by the time I'd started reading Redemptive, it was already Sunday and I pretty much knew I wasn't going to bed until I was at the very last page. A couple of quick notes: First, books one and two end in cliffhangers--MAJOR ones at that--so they MUST be read in order; second, I may mention things in this review that could prove to be spoiler-like if you've yet to read the first book, so feel free to hop, skip, and jump if you're unsure. Also, book three--the conclusion!--will be out tomorrow, so no need to fret!
Bailey Anne Wright has rejection dealt with rejection all her life. From the moment she came into the world, she was unwanted, and it became an all too familiar sad refrain--like a depressing soundtrack that reminded her that she wasn't good enough to be wanted...needed...desired. She knows how it is to survive, and survive she does, but all it took was one life-altering decision--one pull of the trigger--to set her life on a course that seemed impossible to stop. On that same night, though, someone else's life was irrevocably changed as well--the life of Nate DeLuca.
Did you know that writing reviews for books that have a mystery slash suspense feel to them is NOT easy? I try to keep my reviews for this particular genre concise for fear that I'm going to spill the beans, and part of the thrill of this sort of read is having all those questions in your head and then coming across clues that may help you figure out what the heck is going on. Not all my questions were answered, but I did come away with a better understanding of events in the past and how some characters are tied together. Five stars easily go to Redemptive. ♥
