REDEMPTION: by Michelle Horst is Book #2 within the (Men of Honor) series and can be read as a standalone novel. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ In this we meet Quinn Drake and Eli Jackson. 

After closing up shop late one night at the Green Leaf where she works Quinn has to walk to past a lit up gas station, after that it’s a long dark stretch until she reaches her house, she notices that she is being followed by Steve a guy she knew from school who always hung out with undesirables, she notices he’s as high as a kite which sets off a feeling of uneasiness.

But as luck would have it coming out of the gas station at that exact moment she recognises Eli, she makes out that she’s there to meet him, and throws her arms around him begging him to play along which he does swiftly. He takes her home and after that a strong friendship blossoms between them. Eli craves more than friendship from Quinn but he’s been friend zoned since he rescued her that night. It’s not until she meets Ray and becomes engaged to him where Eli wishes he had’ve told her his true feelings. 

Things move progressively fast in this novel, just when you're lulled into a false sense of security 
between Quinn and Ray, making a wedding dress and planning a wedding, life is on a high, until BAM shit goes down and you're left reeling in it’s wake. Things change within a blink of an eye drastically. 

Why do bad things happen to good people? 

This point turns dark. I don't want to go further into my review from here because it needs to be read without spoilers so that you feel everything this author throws at you because it's a dooza and a real game changer in the book. But when there's dark there's always light in the darkness.

I want you. All of you, Quinn, not just your friendship. I want to touch every inch of your body. I want to be inside of you. I want to be able to show the world you're mine. 

MY THOUGHTS: I love this author, loved this story, loved these characters, it was like it was written just for me, the dark and gritty moments, the sweet moments, the swooning moments she ticked all my boxes. 
The only thing is that it abruptly ends at 72% on my ipad and I really wanted to read the court room setting and their testimonies because I wanted to see him hang by the balls. Other than those two minor things I really really enjoyed this, and highly recommend this book, this series and I can not wait for the next book.

She barged her way into my life and demanded that I be her friend. That was the best day of my life. The day Quinn took one look at my sorry ass, and decided I needed her.

She was right. I can’t live a day without her smile. She’s my heart and soul. I’ve become her shadow, always threatening any guy that dares to even look at her.

I’ve fallen for my best friend. I wish I’d told her sooner how much I love her. 

I was only five minutes late. That’s all it took for him to take her.
He ripped the sun right out of my life.

In the darkest of nights, even your shadow leaves you. Those are the only words she’s spoken to me since that night. They haunt me, a constant echo in the emptiness left behind. 

Because of him, she now fears me. But I’ll be patient with her.
I’ll get my sunshine back once I’ve dealt with him.
He’s had a taste of her and just like me, he’s addicted. 
He’ll come for her again and when he does, I’m going to make him suffer. 

I’m a Jackson. I’ve learned from the best. He’s a dead man walking and I’m the Grim Reaper.
