Excerpt #1

The gym manager jumps up to check the dude out and looks at me. “What the fuck did you do, man?”
I shrug. “I only hit him once.”
The manager walks over to the guy and gives him a little kick and the guy starts to grumble on the floor. Deciding that it’s time for me to get the hell out of here, I jump out of the ring and begin to unwrap my hands of the tape. I look up and see Filthy walking toward me. “Dude, what the fuck did you do to that guy?”
I shrug. “One hit and he went down.”
Filthy shakes his head and just looks at me with wonder in his eyes. I look over at the guy in the ring with the manager. He’ll be okay, so I turn to leave.
“See ya back at the club, brother.”
Filthy nods and goes back to working out. He may be skinny, but he’s all muscle, and I know he works out here every day. I think I need to get myself into a regular routine and hopefully find a trainer to keep my skills up. I’m not sure if I want to walk away from fighting every now and then. The money is good, and it’s fast and easy.

***WARNING*** If you have not read Faith's Temptation, you will need to read to prior to Ryder's Redemption

This story picks up where Faith's Temptation left off.  Ryder was bailed out of jail by the Russians and now they own him, Faith fears that something bad has happened to Ryder, and she thinks she's lost him forever.  Faith holds on tight to the memory of Ryder with all of her might while dealing with her dying father at the same time.  Ryder clings to the memory of Faith has he fights for his freedom.  Months of fighting will change a man, and Ryder changes.

But there is more going on in this story that just Faith missing Ryder and Ryder fighting for his freedom to keep Faith safe.  There are changes going on within the MC, ones that will change things forever.  Ryder now not only has to deal with fighting to keep Faith safe but also has to fight to keep the MC from falling apart and deal with a portion of his past that decides it's time to return just when things start to look up.  With so much weighing against them, can Faith and Ryder find their way back to one another?

While this story did pick up where Faith's Temptation left off, I just felt like something was missing for me.  I loved Faith's Temptation, it was one of the better MC novels I have read, but Ryder's Redemption failed to capture the love I felt in Faith's Temptation.  Did I finish it?  Sure.  I just felt like there was something lacking in it, there was no heat or passion, but this book was full of pain and heartache I'll give it that.  Then to find out there's another book?  While I am excited to continue their story, I just wish this would have been one or two books instead of three.  I will finish it just because I want to know what happens, but somewhere along the way, I disconnected myself from the overall story and I'm hoping that book three will draw me back in as I did love both characters and several others from the story.  I give it 3.5 stars rounded up to 4.
