There is nothing more amazing to me than to be able to add another author to my “must read everything they write list.” Monica James has effectively been added to that list in my world. When I read Something Like Normal, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Something Like Redemption. I had to have more of the story. So the moment it showed up on my Kindle, I did a little happy dance. The bad part of it was I was stuck in an office and had a pile of work sitting in front of me so I couldn’t instantly open it and devour it. But I can tell you the moment I got home I sat down and did just that! Something Like Normal had my heart racing and my pulse pounding. I wanted so much more of it when it ended. I fell in love with Mia’s character and her strength. But there was so much more to the story and so, with all books that live that kind of impression on me, when the next book hit my Kindle, it was a drop everything and read this book right now. The bad part is, you only get to read a new book for the first time once and I am afraid with this follow up in the series, I want to experience it all for the first time again! Once I read the last page, I knew I would forever be a Monica James fan-girl. Because as much as I love the first book in this series, the second just stole my soul. Mia and Quinn are on the run, looking for an escape until they can be proven innocent or until her dad is out of the picture finally. The odds are against them, but they are holding onto hope and each other. Mia’s past is out in the open and everyone is looking for her. But it’s not just he public that is out to find her… so her is dad. Mia and Quinn will not be safe until he is out of the picture, but there is so much more going on. Just keep moving. It will be harder to find them if they just keep moving. One little misstep can change everything. Lucky for Mia and Quinn, the only misstep they have is actually enjoying themselves a little as fugitives. On their journey, Mia runs into a guy she knew from California. They pass pleasantries and move on. But something says, be careful with him… he may show back up… Monica James kept me on the edge of my seat with this one. It made me a bit anxious, but that was one thing I loved about it. I had to know what happened next! I had to know what was going to happen on this crazy adventure. But mostly I wanted to know if Mia and Quinn were ever going to give into the sexual tension and frustration they are both experiencing. Yeah, that’s shallow of me. Of course, I want them to make it to the other side and I want her dad to pay the price. But Mia and Quinn are so completely perfect for one another. They may not be perfect people and they definitely have freaky pasts going on, but there is something sweet about how they are together. So despite everything that these two are experiencing, I want Mia and Quinn to be happy together. This is an edge of your seat sequel and so worth the read! It will keep you turning pages just to find out what will happen next. It is full of high tension, high drama and will having you rooting for Mia and Quinn.
