Most fairy tales end with a happily ever after.
This is not a fairy tale. He is not her Prince Charming about to whisk her away into the sunset. This is a story about betrayal, lust, desire and, ultimately, revenge…
And revenge can only lead to one thing.
He was my stranger, my visitor, my shadow in the corner of my room. He stalked me, watched me, knew everything about me. But all I could do was sit and wait. I waited for him to visit me night after night. He was becoming my addiction, my craving, my obsession. He knew every inch of me, but I knew nothing about him.
His calls himself Lotus and, as crazy as it sounds, I think I’m falling in love.
I wanted to take her, possess her, dominate her, and ruin her. I wanted to ravish her, please her, and consume her until I couldn’t take much more of her.
She will want me to kiss her. She will want me to hold her all night so that she feels a connection with me. I would make it so that she would seek me out in the dark. The one that satisfies her ultimate fantasy. A stranger who sneaks into her room. Someone who gives her the ultimate pleasure, but also seeks to give her ultimate pain. Pain she has never had to endure. Pain that will eat away at her until there is nothing left.
She was my nemesis, I was her lotus. And payback was a bitch.
How could anyone move on from a betrayal so devastating, it cut down to the bone and rooted itself deep within? You could never forgive such heartache…
Or could you?
From the moment Tyler was six, she fell in love with that cocky eight-year-old boy with the black spiky hair, captivating blues eyes, and scruffy uniform. From the moment he punched a boy for hurting her, Tyler knew there was no going back. They were always meant to be together…
Then everything changed. The stage was set like a tragic Shakespearean play, and Tyler’s and Dean’s world—as they knew it—had ended.
Or had it?
My name was Jessica now. I faked my own death, changed my identity, and moved thousands of miles across the ocean just to escape the one man I would never get out of my heart. I had a four-year-old son I adored more than anything in the world. On one fateful, horrific night, the life I knew disappeared in the blink of an eye. I left people behind. People I cared about. People I would never forget. People I loved.
But had I truly moved on?
No one said leaving behind the one man you had loved since you were six would be easy. I lived life day-to-day. I even met a man and tried to settle down. Evan was a man any woman would desire. So why could I not love him the way he obviously loved me? Why couldn’t I move past the dark-haired, blue-eyed boy who consumed my every thought? I may have left him, but he had never truly left me.
I could never love another man. Dean made sure of that the day he breezed into my life. I was only half a woman now. I had been broken and bruised by the one man I thought I could always love and trust. How could I let go of something like that? I suppose I just had to. I was just getting by with each day that passed. I was coping. I was managing, and that was keeping me from falling apart.
But then disaster struck again. And it was on that day…
You can’t hide forever, Tyler. I will always be hunting you, always be searching, and will never give up. If there was ever one certainty in your life, it was that. You slipped through my fingers, not once but twice. You took my heart with you when you left me that day. No amount of alcohol, women, or punching bags would block you from my mind. You couldn’t be dead. I wouldn’t allow you to be dead. You’re out there somewhere. I must congratulate you that you had evaded me for this long. You always were a smart girl. How could I not have fallen in love with you? You did escape me this time, but I will find you, Tyler. I promise you that. And when that day comes…
I will finally make you MINE.
REVIEW FROM MISMOUSEY
I received an ARC from the author in exchanged in for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey] very opinion of Redemption by Jamie Roberts.
Upon opening this ebook up an start reading it I have to say that the author Ms Roberts, had caught my attention right from the start. I was pulled into the story from the very beginning. The way in which the author – Jamie Roberts takes pen to paper and describes not only her characters but the scenes and the story line is truly amazing. To bring a story out what could be considered as today’s new’s. And by that I mean- you have someone that is running an hiding away from everyone they love so that they can not be found. Because if they do – the ones they love could be harmed.
The way in which in the author brings her style to paper is truly her own. She has her own way writing and describing every little detail and scene to the point that you are able to picture them right before your eyes.
Redemption is about a young women who is running an hiding from a man that was in her past. One that hurt her and brought pain with him. Tyler runs and hides from Dean. Years have passed they only that Tyler is able to have any contact with her parents with thru the lawyer. The reason is so that Dean is will not find her or son. When Dean is a round is brings trouble. She doesn’t fear him- as she know he love her. She just doesn’t trust him any more. Tyler who is now going by the name of Jessie – just does not want to allow Dean back into her life again.
Tyler’s son is in trouble – she calls her parents – doesn’t stop to think that Dean that would have the phone tapped. And her parents followed. They come running to her to an their grandson.
During through the course of time Tyler had been hiding from Dean. She had been keeping a secrete from him . One that she did not ever want him to know about, That he had a son- Jeremy. When he had hurt her so bad before he was born- she just could not bring herself to ever to him tell about his son. She had to keep him safe at all cost!!
Will Tyler finally allow Dean back into her life?? Will she tell son who his father actually is ?? What happens to her to bestie ?? Is she is able to finally put the past behind her with no regrets??
Redemption has a lot of twists and turns in it.. This book is written for adults over 16 . and Mismousey gives it a firm rating of 50 out 5 stars.
