Title: Redeem Me
Author: Eliza Freed
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Series: Lost Souls #2
Some things can't be forgiven...
Charlotte O'Brien should forgive God for her parents' death. She should forgive her boyfriend for his one horrific mistake that separated them, and she should forgive herself for cutting them both off, but instead she hates everyone.
But when her childhood friend Noble Sinclair arrives, his passion reignites the spark that had vanished so completely in Charlotte's gray existence. And in Noble's arms, Charlotte finally begins to wonder if she might be ready to choose the future with Noble over her shattered past.
Redeem Me is book 2 in the Lost Souls series.
Let me just say....ugh, this story continues to crush me. I mean, seriously. I get where Charlotte is coming from, I completely understand why she wouldn't want to forgive Jason. I get it, I really really do, but she is absolutely miserable. He is miserable, everyone is friggin miserable.
I like Noble, I have since the first book. He's a great guy, and a great friend. I don't think he has a clear head when it comes to Charlotte. He's been in love with her for a while, he was there through all of the ups and downs that was her and Jason's relationship. He sees how crushed she was and continues to be after the break up. I get where he's coming from, but I don't think things are going to end well for him, and this is just my way of thinking, which really sucks because he's a great guy so far.
Again, I didn't love this ending. It left me with anxious feelings. I have to know how this story ends, though. I just really really hope that everything turns out okay for all parties involved. Yes, Jason screwed up, but I can't hate him, even if I wanted to. I can't hate Noble or Charlotte. I enjoy these characters and I'm terrified I'm going to get my poor little heart broken with the next book. Sad face. But seriously, I'd recommend this series if you can handle a deeper read.
