“He disappeared around the corner, leaving nothing but the slowly turning tire on a bike and Jared’s heart as it shattered.”
When Jared, a Navy Seal, comes back home he finds out he’s a father and the mother of his child, Annie Campbell, is none too happy about it. Annie and Jared had been friends for a long time. After one night of uninhibited sex, Jared enlists and leaves without telling Annie. No wonder, she isn’t happy.
They have history; a child and undeniable passion between them that they can’t ignore or let go of.
What I loved about this story was not only the premise but how it all came together. As a whole it’s a very good book but it’s not simply a romance, it’s supposed to be a Mystery/Suspense novel as well. That aspect of the story kept diminishing with every page I turned. It simply wasn’t as much of a focus as I thought it would be. The plot and the climax both were good though it was easy to guess the ending.
The story gives a glimpse of a small town. That’s a setting I love to read. The characters were well developed. I could probably explain every character but I don’t have enough time for that. The writing style of Miss Biggar allows me to understand both sides of this story which is a big plus in my book.
Rebel’s Redemption is the second book in the Wounded Heart series. I have not read the first book in this series but I am going to read it and will keep an eye out for Miss Biggar’s other books. The series can be read as a standalone but to get the most enjoyment I would suggest you to read from the start.
