Redemption: Part 3 by Kate Benson – My Review

Title: Redemption: Part 3 *Audiobook*

Author: Kate Benson

Release Date: January 21st 2020

Genre: Erotica

One night of passion meant to remain a memory, a moment of forbidden bliss, had quickly turned into more.
Isabella wanted something deeper and that was exactly what Adam gave her.
She found herself engulfed in his world of secrets, thrusted into the new reality she begged for.
She lived him, breathed him, craved him.
Would it be enough for Adam? Would it be enough for her?

He swore this was one line he would never cross with her.
Adam vowed their relationship, the one they were never meant to have, would remain untainted by his cravings, his desires … untainted by him.
But Isabella changed everything.
She changed him.
Once she handed him her submission, she scaled every wall he’d ever put up around himself.
Would he be able to shield her from the dark corners of his reality?
Would he be enough to make her stay?

Holy heck! That ending!!! What I really like about this series is how there is some conflict between the two. Nothing is easy especially the agreement and I love that the author added that touch. I love these two!! Those steamy scenes combined with Zachary Zaba’s voice, makes for a guilty pleasure read. All the pleasure and none of the calories! I give this 5 stars.

Title: Redemption: Part Two (The Vault Book 2) *Audiobook*

Author: Kate Benson

Release Date: April 27th 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

One night.
That was all he was supposed to take from her, but it wasn’t enough.

Isabella invaded his thoughts, fueled his hunger, stroked his dominance.
She threatened to turn Adam’s life completely upside down.
Could he turn away from the only woman he’s ever truly craved?

She was supposed to forget about him, take their secret and bury it deep.
Her lips were sealed, but forgetting the night she shared with Adam? That was a different story.
How could one man feel like such a good and bad idea all at once?
His world was one Isabella knew nothing about, but with one taste, she couldn’t help but crave another.
She should have taken his gift of redemption and ran.
Instead, she was aching to surrender.

The sexiness continues in part two! There are so many things I loved about this book. Isabella is feisty and doesn’t apologize for it. Nothing is rushed concerning a certain topic. LOVED that! So many rush into it and I love that Miss Benson didn’t. As always she brings the heat with those hot scenes between Adam and Isabella. Zachary’s pleasant voice helped bring the story to life! I can’t wait to dive into the next one! I give this 5 stars.
