Publisher's Summary

Nearly the last remaining member of Olivia Cattenach's family has just died overseas and left her overcome by grief. But when a soldier shows up at her ranch with a final message from her brother, she finds new purpose. 

Nathan Roldan is as formidable as they come. Bulging muscles and inked to boot, he looks like every bit the bad boy he claims to be. Except, under his shuttered gaze and behind his walls lies a gentle giant. 

Determined to carry out her brother's wishes, she chips away at Nate's layers and discovers more pain than any person should ever have to endure. A passion she never dreamed of was possible.

He's not the hero she thinks he is.... Nate's mistake got a fellow comrade killed, and a deathbed promise to take care of the guy's sister lands him in Wyoming with the hope of redemption. But he wasn't expecting...her. Beautiful, witty, and sweet, Olivia is everything he doesn't deserve. Born a nothing, he'll die a nothing. 

Though guilt is a living thing, temptation is too hard to resist. Somehow, she's unleashing his restraint and unearthing feelings he buried long ago. He wants her. More, he's worried he needs her. 

She's trying to save him, but when she learns the truth, he'll lose the only happiness he's ever known.

Love military romances

This story got me hooked from the very beginning. Our hero is looking for redemption from a serious error he believed he made. Our heroine heals his heart and a beautiful slow burning romance develops. I live how you could feel his agony and regret. I’m so happy this is a series so im off to the next one.
The narration is very good as well. I usually dislike male narrators but he made good female voices and added the necessary emotion. Highly recommended for fans of military romance or second chance stories.

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.

Redemption Worth Redeeming

Redemption is not my usual read. It takes place on a ranch. The male protagonist just got out of the military. Neither are tropes I usually seek out. And yet, I enjoyed the story. The building relationship was well done as were the supporting characters. The setting seemed realistic. And the ending was nicely done. I liked tha narrator. He made the third-person omniscient voice different from the characters, which is not always easy. So, I would say if you like romances that are a little complicated but not overly angsty, this might be a good listen for you.

Good story of love found

I really enjoyed how Nate was finally able to let go of the majority of his guilt through Olivia's love. He fought so hard against accepting any kind of kindness or love since he'd never known any. I loved how Olivia never gave up on him and at the end Nate found home.
It was different for me to listen to a male narrator for a romance. It took me a while to get past that and enjoy the story. I do think in some parts the expression could have been better but had no trouble following who was who and what was happening.

Loved this book

There were a couple times there were years in my eyes. Dealing with guilt because and the fact he was commanding officer when Olivia's brother was killed in Iraq. But also guilt because he didn't tell that to Olivia right away and now he loves her after spending time in the ranch with her after he promised her brother to talk care of her. Will Olivia convince him he is what she wants and he deserves to be loved and to forgive himself?

Redemption

A chance of love after tragic news. These two people are both very headstrong and yet they are completely different in every other way. I loved seeing how this book would work out and am very happy with the ending.

No

I’m not sure about the story at all. I just can’t with this narrator. I don’t like the way he reads or his voice. So I haven’t heard the whole story and yes I have tried more than one of the stories this guy narrators.
