Book Review: Redemption Road by Katie Ashley

Redemption Road (Vicious Cycle #2)
By Katie Ashley
Release Date: October 6, 2015

Looking for a walk on the wild side, Annabel Percy, the daughter of a powerful politician, starts dating a biker she knows is completely wrong for her. But she finds herself living a nightmare when she’s kidnapped and transported into a hell on earth she never could have imagined.

Born and bred into the Hells Raiders MC, Nathaniel “Reverend” Malloy lives and dies for his brothers. But when he becomes the unexpected savior of a rival club’s captive, Rev makes it his personal mission to nurse Annabel back to health—and to shelter her from the nightmares that torment her.

Once Annabel heals, she’s stunned to realize she is falling for the seductive man who saved her. Faced with their impossible attraction, can she accept the life he leads, or will Rev walk away from the only life he’s ever known for the woman he was never supposed to love?

Oh man. Who knew I would be such a sucker for a motorcycle romance? This is the second book to this series and, I've got to say, I loved it even more than the first! 

Annabel Percy is tired of going out with the straight-laced guys her politician father would approve of. But one error in judgment leads Annabel to being kidnapped and sold into sex slavery. As president of the Hell's Radiers, Nathaniel "Reverend" Malloy will do anything for his men. Going after the captured daughter of one of his members is a no brainer, but when he ends up saving a beautiful, but heavily damaged woman, Rev will do everything to nurse her back to help and protect her from the men who hurt her so deeply. 

Starting off, this book is definitely a very slow building romance. This deals with some pretty heavy topics seeing as Annabel was raped and violated by a very horrible man before Rev rescued her. Obviously she's not going to want to start anything physical soon, but I loved the connection she felt for Rev and how safe she felt with him. The roots of the relationship really formed before it became anything more. 

Speaking of Rev, can we swoon over him for a second? Many romances love the whole bad boy trope where he's a total player and smooth with the ladies. While Rev has had his fair share of women, he never brags about it and he's so gentle and sweet with Annabel. I mean, seriously, Annabel pretty much swoons throughout the entire book over how sweet and caring Rev is towards her as she's healing. I knew that the ending event was coming since it was hinted at pretty early on in the book, but I was still on the edge of my seat, hoping for the HEA that these characters deserved. 

If you like motorcycle romances, you HAVE to pick up the Vicious Cycle series. There are hot men, strong-willed women who can put up with those hot men, and a loving family that you feel yourself become a part of as you read. I can't wait to continue on in this series and watch another Malloy brother fall in love.
