Book Review: Redemption (Men of Honor #2) by Michelle Horst

Goodreads Synopsis:

She barged her way into my life and demanded that I be her friend. That was the best day of my life. The day Quinn took one look at my sorry ass, and decided I needed her.

She was right. I can’t live a day without her smile. She’s my heart and soul. I’ve become her shadow, always threatening any guy that dares to even look at her.

I’ve fallen for my best friend. I wish I’d told her sooner how much I love her.

I was only five minutes late. That’s all it took for him to take her.
He ripped the sun right out of my life.

In the darkest of nights, even your shadow leaves you. Those are the only words she’s spoken to me since that night. They haunt me, a constant echo in the emptiness left behind.

Because of him, she now fears me. But I’ll be patient with her.
I’ll get my sunshine back once I’ve dealt with him.
He’s had a taste of her and just like me, he’s addicted.
He’ll come for her again and when he does, I’m going to make him suffer.

I’m a Jackson. I’ve learned from the best. He’s a dead man walking and I’m the Grim Reaper.

Chick and Brain Rating 4 out of 5 stars

The Men of Honor series could possibly be my favorite of all of Michelle Horst books. Yes, I know I say this all of the time but after reading this series I think I have found a winner. Just a fair warning the book ended around 70% on my kindle.  Don’t be shocked by the percentage, Horst takes the time to wrap up all loose ends before typing “THE END”

Redemption focuses on the story of a lonely girl,Quinn, who wants nothing more that to be loved in the world. Not just any kind of love, but the knock you socks off kind of love that every girl dreams of. She found it in her best friend Eli. They did not meet in the most conventional way, but a part of Eli belonged to Quinn from day one. However, Quinn was not so sure they were destined to be together so she went looking for love with someone else. After a truly heartbreaking turn of events, Quinn must accept what has happened to her in order to regain control of her life and Eli is there with her every step of the way.

Eli has been in love with Quinn from the moment he laid eyes on her, and watching her agree to marry another man broke him. However, when Quinn called him for help he immediately stepped into action. There was no thought for his welfare, his only job was to protect Quinn at any cost. Part of protecting her, was also helping put the pieces back together after the dust settled. These two are destined to be together, Eli just has to make sure Quinn understands that and not shatter when is left of his best friend in the process.

Although I enjoyed the story of Quinn and Eli I feel like there was something missing. Horst does an amazing job of wrapping up all the loose ends, but the story seems to end rather abruptly. The edition of an epilogue would have been great and possibly wrapped things up neater in my head.  All in all a great story that I will for sure recommend in the future. I can not wait for the next book Legacy to be released.
