A man she thought she knew. A passion beyond her wildest fantasies…

When Ryan Beecher returns home after a long deployment overseas, Lexy barely recognizes her husband. The man who left Texas for Afghanistan was cruel and abusive. The man who comes back to her is a badly injured stranger with amnesia—and no memory of their life together.

Lexy can't believe how much Ryan has...more

Imagine if you will, your military husband returns from deployment not with PTDS, but rather the opposite: a once verbally and physically abusive man is now sweet and kind. That's what happens to Lexy Beecher, who was just waiting for her husband to return home to hand him the divorce papers, having finally saved up enough money to pay the fees for the nursing home where her younger brother lies dying of a degenerative disease. After being wounded in a bombing, Ryan Beecher comes home scarred, c...more

I really enjoyed this story. It was interesting in how different from any other story I have read. The characters are enjoyable. I had a few problems with some of the things that were or were not done (DNA test, anyone?). But the story is so sweet and Ryan is so lovable it is hard not to enjoy him. I can see why Lexy is so scared and stand-offish but she comes into her own so completely that it is nice to watch.

I can’t see why this is considered erotic b...more

Reviewed from e-arc provided by NetGalley

Lexy has every intention of divorcing her abusive husband Ryan as soon as she can; his stint in the Marines did nothing to change her mind. But now, Ryan has been badly wounded and Lexy is torn: "Her conscience was speaking to her. The one time she wished it would fail her, it was loud and clear. You can't leave him like this."

Lexy is even more torn when she realizes that the Ryan who came back from the Marines is nothing like the Ryan who went in. Able...more

"The adage that everyone has a twin somewhere in the world becomes a reality in the war zone of the Middle East. This complex, engrossing novel tells of a man with no memories and a wife determined to start over - without him". (RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars)

Miniseries: A Redemption Novel
Cardyn Brooks
Whether she's writing as Sugar or Ginger Jamison, this author delivers emotional intimacy and tenderness between complicated adults in challenging circumstances. She juggles her characters' issues with themselves, family, friends and community with details that feel authenitically 21st-c. Liberty jumpstarts the Redemption series with Lexy and Ryan's poignant story. The scorching sex scenes just seal the love-story deal.

The odd disconnect between Lexy's librarian gig and her sexual innocence/ign...more

On the same theme as 'The Return of Martin Guerre' or 'Sommersby' as it was filmed, an unhappy wife has a marine husband return - in his case, seriously injured and amnesiac.

This husband can't believe he was such a loser as to have beaten and alienated the lovely woman but all she wants is her freedom. She knows the women of Liberty, Texas, stand by their men, but she's had enough of his insults about her mixed heritage and as soon as he's well enough, she's leaving.

Gradually the two get to kn...more

First off I won this book from Goodreads Giveaway. Thanks!

I absolutely loved this book. You meet Lexy who has been married to Ryan since she was 17. They have been married for 10 years. Ryan is a poor excuse for a man in my opinion. So he goes off to deployment. He comes home to Texas hurt. Lexy sees him in the hospital. Could the man she sees be her husband. Or he is a changed man? He is gentle and loving. Not like the old Ryan. Ryan has lost his memory. This is a great read.

Is Ryan really Rya...more

I just finished Liberty by Ginger Jamison and think it's one of the best books I have ever read! I loved the storyline, the main characters, and the secondary characters. The author is an amazing writer and really leads the reader through a emotional and loving journey. No spoilers from me, but reading about the recuperation of Ryan Beecher and the hell his wife Lexy went through prior to his stint in the Marines is heart-breaking. The twist of the story brought tears to my eyes, but had faith t...more

In Liberty, the first novel in Ginger Jamison's Redemption series, Lexy Beecher barely recognizes her abusive husband, Ryan, when he returns home after he is injured in Afghanistan. While he (mostly) looks like the same man who left, he certainly does not act like the same man she feared for most of her marriage. Which makes her wonder, is he the same man?

One of only two men who survived an attack in Afghanistan, Ryan Beecher returns to the small town of Liberty with very few memories. He has a...more

I received this galley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Harlequin and Netgalley.

I'm usually not a romance person, but from the time I first heard about Liberty I knew that I wanted to read it. Though the story was very predictable and I knew from the first few pages how it was going to turn out, I still really enjoyed it. It was a quick read and I loved the characters.

Ryan has come back from Afghanistan with no memory about his life before the war. He used to be an extremely abusive j...more

I was very disappointed with this novel. After reading the synopsis, I was prepared for an intense, heart pounding, page turning novel. What I got was a disjointed story wher

e the characters lacked Charisma and whose dialogue throughout the book seem farfetched

Throughout the book the author hinted that the war hero could or could not be Ryan, the abusive husband. It was not until the end that it was revealed. I am on the fence as to whether or not I would patronize this author again.
A. Jones
A truly engaging story. It had it's slow moments, but I was so attached to the characters, I pushed past them. Always nice to have some diversity in the lead; not have that be the main reason for the story, but just part of the character.
My first book by Ms. Jamison. I will definitely check out the next one, when it's released.

I was so excited when I received Liberty in the mail. Liberty is one of those books you just can't seem to put own until you reach the very last word. Ginger Jamison creates such a sweet and unexpected love story out of what would have been a tragedy. By throwing an unexpected curve ball at the reader, Jamison keeps the story interesting and the pages turning. I would definitely recommend this book to those who like romance novels. Great book for a snowday or beach day! (I received this book for...more

It's getting very warm down in Texas! When Lexy Beecher's abusive husband returns from a tour of Afghanistan, she's more than ready to divorce him. But his sexy charm and newfound compassion has her heart tied in knots. Is he really the same man she married? Lexy's not so sure! Ginger Jamison writes an engaging passionate novel!

Note: Received in Goodreads First Reads giveaway

I loved this book. Absolutely loved it, even in the less believable moments. I like the spunk of the female character, and though the plot was mostly predictable, it was a sweet and fun book that I couldn't put down except at that moment where I got so tired I couldn't even see the page I was reading anymore. Fantastic and fun read!

I won this book from the goodreads giveaways.

Liberty by Ginger Jamison was the perfect read for a rainy day. It was kept the reading engaged and wanting to read more. I did not want to put this book down. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author in the future.

I received this book from Goodreads First Reads giveaway. I enjoyed reading it.

You realize the story line from the beginning but Jamison manages to convince the reader that somehow it will turn out differently. I am not sure how she did that but it made for a wonderful story!
