Publisher's Summary

Isabella

After a humiliating breakup, I’m not afraid to admit my personal life has taken one hell of a hit.

I’ve allowed myself time to lick my wounds and I’m not only confident my nights alone on the couch are numbered, I’ve got a solid plan for the first time in months. Focus on work, don’t worry about the rest. The last thing I need in my life right now is another complication. I’ve convinced myself it’s a flawless plan.

I just have to stay off Adam Avery’s radar and I’ll be fine. Now that I’ve met him, I’m not sure I want to be anywhere else. 

Adam

I’ve been my father’s best kept dirty secret for more than three decades. 

When my uncle, the CEO of Avery Finance, is forced into early retirement, he appoints me as his unlikely successor and the media goes into a frenzy.

For an admitted recluse, it’s definitely a challenge, but I’ve never shied away from those before.

I just need to stay focused, in control and avoid distraction. Unfortunately, Isabella Baxter might be the one distraction I can’t resist.

I need a fan

Isabella is living life just under the radar. She’s showing up to work, she’s eating the same lunch everyday. Her comfort zone is invisible. Enter Adam.

Adam has inherited the family financial business. He’s self contained, sexy and oh so bossy. When Adam takes notice in Isabella invisible is the last thing she will ever be again.

There is heat and all consuming passion for days!

The narration is solid.

This will leave you desperate for book 2.

A good listen

I enjoyed the story. Isabella is a quiet until she is drinking then you get to see her feisty side come out. Adam is arrogant and demanding but I loved his character. The author pulls you int to her stories and leaves you wanting more.

Zachary Zaba did a good job narrating this. I personally like both male and female narrators so you connected more to the characters.

HOT READ!

The cover is HOT!! Ok now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, this book is totally sexy! It’s also much more than that. We have a feisty leading lady and a total alpha. Isabelle is smart and beautiful. I love that she was awkward at times and then pissed off the next. Adam is….Adam. You have to read the book to know more about this man! The narrator’s voice was pleasant and added to the story. I can’t wait to dig into the rest!! It’s a definite guilty pleasure read! I give it 5 stars.

Loved everything about this story!!!

Redemption – Part 1 by Kate Benson (The Vault Part 1) Audiobook was a wonderful story!!!! It follows Adam and Isabella. He’s a shunned family member who is thrust into a power position when the head of the company has to step down. He meets one of his employees, Isabella…in Marketing. There’s a strong attraction and things get a little heated.

The narration of an Audiobook can either greatly enhance the story or absolutely ruin it…THANKFULLY, the narration by Zachary Zaba is a welcome addition to this incredible story. He has the ability to embrace the characters and present them perfectly!!!! His manner of performance helped bring this story to life!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed both the storyline and the delivery of it by the narrator!!! Moving on to part 2 right away!!!!!

I am volunteering to leave a review for an Advance Reader Copy of this Audiobook.

Hot!

This is the first novella in The Vault Series. Isabella and Adam share an instant lust and a sizzling chemistry. The storyline is fast paced and steamy. Zachary Zaba did a great job with the narration. Looking forward to listen to the next book in the Series. #AudiobookObsession

4.5 stars

First book I've read/listened to by Kate Benson. It was a good listen. A slow burn that I completely enjoyed except that it's so short. It is a cliffhanger if you want to know what happens, otherwise one could just stop with this and be satisfied. But I want to know what happens.

Zachary Zaba did an excellent job narrating. His performance was flawless.

This book is fantastic. It is short as are all the books in the series. But it’s worth it. I love both h and H. She is relatable and not overly whiny. She’s not a prude but not overly feisty either. I think she is a perfect mix. He is a tad over the top but that’s what we like sometimes. 😁 The book is super hot and the narration hotter. I would definitely recommend this book!

Love this story!

Adam is the CEO of the company Isabella works for. He’s drawn to her from before their first actual meeting, and she is drawn to him as well.

They cave and then she finds out things about him that make her walk away. He wants her. She wants him.

Can they stay away? We shall see! Headed into Part 2!!!

Really hawt start to the series

This was a quick, exciting start of what seems to be a really sexy, hot steamy affair between Isabella and her boss Adam. Excited to see where things go between them.

This is my first time hearing Zachary Zaba preform and it was great but I wished for more distinction between the characters. But I’m spoiled by dual or duet narration.

Still really enjoyed it and can not wait for the next book.

A short story jammed packed with goodness

I can easily relate to Isabella. What can go wrong, will. She spills coffee, on no other than her new boss. Great first impression. That is just the beginning to Isabella and Adam's story. Adam falls into the position, he never really wanted in the first place. Both Isabella and Adam are determined to stay focused with no distractions. Well that fails after the first bump. I was hooked from the beginning and I was left wanting more. I really enjoyed this steamy, budding romance and cannot wait to jump into the next installment.

Zachary Zaba enhanced the experience of this story. He has a great voice to listen to. I easy got lost in his narration. His female voices are smooth and not forced. It was easy to follow the characters as Zachary kept their voices consistent and distinct. Overall, this was a great performance.

Good Start

Title: Redemption: Part One
Author: Kate Benson
Format: Audio
Narrator: Zachary Zaba
Genre: Romance - Office
Standalone: Nope
Part of a Series: Book 1 (of 7) in The Vault series
POV: Isabella and Adam
Steam Level: Slow Burn to steamy
4/5

Obviously I knew that this was going to be a cliffhanger going in. What I didn't realize was how short this was going to be. Redemption: Part One is just about two hours long and just enough to whet your appetite for things to come. Overall a good start to the series.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary reviwe.

Hot!

This is a very hot novella that will have you hot in no time. Kate does a great job with the storyline and the story does not feel rushed in this short novella. Zachary does an excellent job with the narrative!

Fabulous!!

A novella it may be, but believe me when I say Kate Benson definitely knocks it out of the park with this one and narrator Zachary Zaba has one sexy voice, one I could definitely listen to all day!!

I loved Adam and Isabella's chemistry it totally heated up between the pages. Adam has a little arrogance around him to begin with but Isabella soon breaks that down. You can't help but hope Adam and Isabella find a way to be together, and if you've read The Promise Series then you most definitely need to read Redemption!

Steamy!

This is a very steamy contemporary romance novella. The series follows Adam and Isabella, who works at the same office. Adam personality is on the arrogant side, which Isabella doesn't like. The chemistry between the characters is immediate and quickly over-heats. Zachary Zaba does a great job with the narration. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
