Blog Tour: The Redemption by S.L. Scott

The Redemption
By: S.L. Scott
Release Date: November 3, 2014

He was everything she never wanted. Yet, she couldn’t stop thinking about him.

Soulful, amber eyes

A sex, drugs, and rock n’roll reputation

A body that beckoned for sin

Three years ago Rochelle Floros was living her dream come true… then lost it all. On the worst day of her life, the last person she expected to be there for her was a rock star and tabloid favorite. Now, she’s trying to rebuild her life after the tragedy that destroyed her fairytale. Slowly, she found herself captivated by a sexy, bad boy drummer she had known for years.

Rochelle was caught between the grief that shrouded her heart and the charismatic man that made it race. What she didn’t know is if he was being sincere or toying with her heart. The Redemption is about finding the pulse of your soul in the most unlikely places and giving love a chance to grow.

Can what she wants really be what she needs? With his rhythm and her passion, can they make music together? Or will their harmony be lost forever?
The Redemption is a standalone novel. The Resistance is a standalone novel, but the two books share characters and background.
When we let go of the anger, we find clarity in the remains - Rochelle
This is a stand alone novel about one of the band members from The Resistance but it does include some of the characters we met in The Resistance.
Rochelle was left widowed after her partner Cory was tragically killed in an accident, leaving her to raise her two sons and cope with the grief of losing the man she loved.
Dex is the drummer in The Resistance and has led the very clichéd rock star lifestyle.  One thing has been constant though, the love he has had for Rochelle since he first met her as a teenager.  He has quietly watched her fall in love with another man and have a family with him.  He has been there for her and the boys as she grieved the loss of Cory.
Hes just here, silently supportive without asking anything of me - Rochelle
Dex has a lot going on in his life, he is a recovering drug addict and has a lot of issues in his family.  All of this plays on his mind as he quietly goes on with his life.  He wants to be with Rochelle but he has so many doubts about being worthy of her and her boys.  He knows that he has to work through all of his issues if he wants to truly give himself over to her. 
Dex had me absolutely swooning.  He is so good at the small but sweet gestures that he makes with Rochelle and the boys, that they will leave you completely falling in love with him.  He has such a way with words, he puts a lot of thought and feeling into everything he says to Rochelle – he will take your breath away :)
Shes the sun when it sets and my moon when it rises.  My day begins and ends with her on my mind - Dex
Rochelle is still struggling with the grief she feels over losing Cory, its been nearly 3 years and Dex has quietly worked his way into her heart.  He knows she needs time and space before she is ready to take any steps forward with him.  Dont even get me started on how Dex is with Neil and CJ, seriously, he is so sweet with them, I had tears in my eyes often and my ovaries went boom!
So we have two people, feeling extraordinary things for each other but they each need to deal with their past to move forward into their Neverland.
My feelings for you are real.  But for you, Ill be your Peter Pan and you can pretend to be Wendy and well stay in Neverland  until youre ready to see that Neverland doesnt have to live only in our imaginations. - Dex
This is a beautifully told epic love story that completely swept me up, had me crying happy tears and I absolutely loved it!
I give this 5 stars.
Here’s the truth of the matter. If we do this... again, there’s no going back to
square one tomorrow. Not for me. I won’t be able to act like I don’t care about you, like
I haven’t thought about you every day since we were together last. So it’s easier to stop
now than later.”
With a discouraged sigh, I say, “You’re stronger than me, Dex.”
“No, I just know my greatest weakness is the woman beneath me right now.” He
rolls over sighing in a way that shows frustration has set in. Turning his head to me, he
says, “I want to fuck you so bad, but I also want to do all that making love stuff too. And
if we do that, I can’t pretend it didn’t happen.” He sits up and walks to the other side of
the room, leaning his back against the wall.
I prop myself up on my elbows, caught by the heaviness of the emotions I’m
suddenly feeling for him.
“Go to sleep tonight. Fly home tomorrow.” He walks into the shadow of the
entryway. “I’ll see you in a few weeks.”
I hear the door open as I fall back on the bed, my own sexual frustration setting in.
But just when I hear the door close, the weight of his body lands on top of me and he
kisses me hard. Surprised, my eyes fly open, but then I go for it just like him and kiss
him back with just as much passion. He pushes off of me again and stands between my
legs. “I make very few promises in life, but this one I can make to you. Rochelle Floros,
I’m coming for you. It’s our time, so get ready for me.” He turns abruptly and leaves me
sitting there stunned... and tingly.
