Redemption was honestly a book packed full of intense emotional and passionate journey. Even after being sep Title: Even after being separated for seven years, for Vincent and Eve, nothing has changed.
The tides have turned countless times, the Pizza place where they use to eat together and talked about Italy has served countless more Pizzas, Central Park has witnessed many more people teaching their loved ones to skate just like Vincent did for Eve…But their love for each other? Their undying love for each other, regardless of all the turbulent hassles and trails, has stood the test of time.
Talk about an amazing conclusion to a great series! This book picks up 6 years after the end of Book 2 as Vincent is being released from his prison sentence.
Vincent is a man on a mission. He has goals to open his casino, extricate himself from "the family" and of course reunite with Eve. Excuse me while I fangirl a little. Talk about alpha male hotness in all his glory. This is the m Whoa! This is the man you have no choice but to adore and he demands your respect. And let's not forget just absolutely sexy as hell. Yes, daily prison workouts have made him bigger and bulkier and now marked with new battle scars from prison fights. Now let me talk about Eve. In book 2 I didn't like where the author took her character, I felt like she was weak when I wanted her to be strong.
Well let me tell you, I want to go back and give a higher rating for book 2 because I completely understand why the author took Eve in that direction. In this book Eve is now a successful, confident lawyer. She has come a long way from the girl she was in the Blue Houses projects and now I am able to not only appreciate her professional accomplishments but also her growth into a self assured woman.
There are even parts where Eve goes all bad ass to protect her man and the ending of this book left me speechless! How dare I call this woman weak.

My profuse apologies Jessica Ruben! Their connection was palpable on a physical as well as emotional level. The intensity of their love was felt throughout this whole book and when they reconnected after so many years, it was just explosive. We get quite a suspenseful read as Vincent's father does not take his leaving "the family" very well and there are some angsty, edge of your seat scenes.
Hold on to your seat for a wild ride that will captivate you from beginning to end. The sweetness and innocence of their young love blossomed into a once in a lifetime soul crushing love that withstood the test of time and seemingly insurmountable struggles. Sep 09, Carla Bulian rated it really liked it. Adorei os personagens, adorei tudo. I thought I would die after the ending of Reckoning.
I was so nervous to start this book. Vincent is out, he knows what he wants, and he is going after it! I love how the chemistry between him and Eve never fades. My one wish for Eve after the last book was for her to find her strength and let me tell ya- she found it! Eve is kicking some major ass in Redemption and it.
I seriously loved, loved, loved this trilogy! AND a dreamy af hero who is lethal, crazy smart, funny, sexy, possessive, and alpha as hell. Jul 09, Blerina Nikqi rated it it was amazing. It's going to be unbelievable- I just know it! Aug 05, Chele' rated it it was amazing. There's a certain tone to Jessica's writing. It has a rhythm, a beat.
Legacy of Light
Her words are real and raw. Laced with danger and clouded with grit. I absolutely couldn't get enough of Vincent and Eve. Their story is a rough a dark fairytale with an ex army security guard as their fairy godmother. Seven years later and Vincent has paid his debt to society All that he's sacrificed and what for? Things on the outside haven't gotten any better.
His father is more unstable and ruthless as ever and Vincent just wants to move forward and be a legitimate business man. The only thing that's been keeping him sane is Eve. The girl from the Blue Houses is unrecognizable. Eve has overcome and survived so much to become the woman she is today. Her life is in order and routined. Nothing and no one can stand in her way. Except the only man she's ever loved.
Will he be her ruin? Heart pounding suspense, high level of intensity , passion, feels, love, humor, amazing writing and an explosive ending! I honestly didn't want it to end. I already miss them. Aug 05, Tennille rated it liked it. Unfortunately didn't love this one as much as the other two.
I was still happy to read about Eve and Vincent. It might have just been a little rushed and alot predictable. Do recommend this to anyone who loves mafia books. Aug 04, Adriana rated it it was amazing. Was given the honour of reading an ARC for an honest review and let me tell you I was estatic when this appeared on my kindle made my week.
Now this is Jessicas debut series and let me just say she knows how to begin her writing career with a bang. If this is her first series I can just imagine what coming next. Vincent and Eves amazing rollercoaster of a journey started in Rising then went on to Reckoning then concludes in Redemption. There story is not an easy one as the was romance heartbreak Was given the honour of reading an ARC for an honest review and let me tell you I was estatic when this appeared on my kindle made my week. There story is not an easy one as the was romance heartbreak, death , secrets it really did have it all oh and don't forget that the chemistry between Vince and Eve was off the charts hot even when they were fighting.
I hated that this concluded the story but it was an amazing ending, with a few twist and turns and hotness and heartbreak along the way. Loved every second of this rollercoaster. Cannot wait to see what Jessica writes next because if its anything like this we will be sitting at the edge of our seat. I loved that we didn't have to wait so long for each installement even if it was a long wait it would have been worth the wait.
Ill definatly be getting this set on paperback. This is not a standalone you have to read Rising and Reckoning which are also free on kindle unlimted https: Aug 03, BookSmacked rated it it was amazing Shelves: Rising hooked me, Reckoning ruined me and Redemption!!!! Well Redemption consumed me. After being rocked to the core at the end of Reckoning I've been desperate to see what happens next for Vincent and Eve. So far the journey has been quite the ride. It's been Rising hooked me, Reckoning ruined me and Redemption!!!! It's been 7 years since Vincent left Eve's heart shattered and me reeling from what happened at the end of Reckoning.
And now well now Vincent is back and determined. They aren't college kids anymore, both grown and having spent so much time apart but the intensity is still there. I could literally feel it especially when they cross paths again. Vincent Borignone is a force, in your face the man is just hard to ignore. Is it their time finally, will they get to have the life they both wanted or will his obligations get in the way again. I can't even pinpoint what it is about this book I love so much because there are so many things.
But their connection is one of those intangibles that you can feel. It's strong throughout this entire series, undeniable even thought everything in their lives says it shouldn't be.

I couldn't help but NEED for this story to end well. But I also have to say that I love my books to have drama, suspense and angst and Redemption just like Rising and Reckoning did have all those elements which make for a highly entertaining and engaging read. I still can't help but be a bit in awe of the fact that this is Jessica Ruben's debut series and if this is how she comes out swinging then hell dang girl, let me know immediately what is up next.
I'm a fangirl already. Is it possible to be sated but still want more? Full review to follow Full Review How do you say goodbye? Parting is such sweet sorrow, is that the saying? Book three finds us in turmoil yes I say us but it has Vincent working towards having his happily ever after, no matter who is left bloodied and bruised along the way!
Questions answered, more asked, and love that never had it's chance may finally be.. The finale left me wanting more yet completely sated, I believe this is because Wow. The finale left me wanting more yet completely sated, I believe this is because Ms. Ruben was so skilled at taking us on a complete journey. Every installment left you more invested and yet clinging to the hope that there will be more I love the feelings that she evoked in every book. Angst, turmoil, love, hate, want, and above all hope. I can't wait for this author to spread her literary wings and take us to more incredible places.
I'm not a reader that holds off until all the books in a series are out before reading. I don't mind cliffhangers. I don't mind anxiously anticipating the release of the next installment.
See a Problem?
But I do have to wonder, in this instance, if I had read this trilogy back to back, if this third book would've felt a bit more fluid with the rest of the series. A significant amount of time has past between when book 2 ends and book 3 begins, and with that time has come a lot of personal growth and change for I'm not a reader that holds off until all the books in a series are out before reading. A significant amount of time has past between when book 2 ends and book 3 begins, and with that time has come a lot of personal growth and change for Vincent and Eve's characters. As desperate as we readers are for character growth, I can't lie, I struggled with their's a bit at first.
These characters feel much different than they had at the conclusion of Reckoning and I just missed what once was. Something was missing in the transition for me personally, I'm not sure how to define it. I also struggled a bit with the pacing of this story. Things felt a bit too easy at first, I was craving more fire in this reunion.
But with that said, this final book in Vincent and Eve's story was a good one. There's a ton of drama and sexiness, romance and unexpected twists. Jessica Ruben's writing is definitely a lot more polished in this last book and for a newbie author, this trilogy is a solid one as a whole. I was missing something in this last book, some pivotal details or some emotional connection that kind of evaded me for a lot of it. But I think the readers that have gone crazy for these characters since Rising are going to really love this finale.
Aug 10, Stephanie rated it it was amazing. This trilogy is the debut for author Jessica Ruben and what a way to enter the literary world! Rising was heart stopping! I'll be thinking about this one for a while, I'm still completely immersed in that world of Light and Dark, humans and monsters, and love and hate.
A wonderful urban fantasy. I've read all 3 and it was awesome!! Like I've said before, you can really get into the books with the way the author has written her characters! You really go through all the emotions throughout the books! See all 8 reviews.
