The charReview to come, but let me just say that this is the best motorcycle club/alpha male, non-urban fantasy book I have read in a good long while.
The characters, mainly Jenna, were annoying and naive at times, and the book contained more than its fair share of grammar mistakes, but overall.. yeah, it could've been worse.
It's been a good long while that a book got my attention enough to make me want to read it and finish it in one sitting, and not make me want to throw it out with the trash after only a couple of chapters. But this one, I definitely read in one night, so now I feel like an addict, ready to face the world, accepting the fact that it'll probably be a while (and several disastrous books) until I find another diamond in the rough like this.
Renegade Lady, however flawed, soothed my frayed nerves, so hooray to Dawn Martens for satisfying my - very critical, of late - appetite....more

I am so glad I finally read this book. It's been on my to-read list ever since it was first published in June, but even though it has a quite nice rating of 4 point something average on Goodreads, I didn't really think it would be my kind of book.
To be honest, I'm like the typical bad boy book kind of girl, which this, at first glance, did nit seem to be. I mean, who would've thought a freaking math major could be this alpha hottie?
Anyway, even though I did mostly like NA books, set in college, with a sexy, popular man-whore with a reputation, I think Redesigned might've just topped those kinds of books. I was getting tired of the same old childish storylines where only names seem to be dfferent and the rest stays exactly the same. But still, I can't say I was exactly eager to start Redesigned.
The first few pages almost got me to put it away again, but, luckily, I followed through.
The first thing that got me was the fact that the characters, for once, actually acted their age. In nearly every single other college set book, the characters, the MC's in particular, are basically just teenagers stuck in a twenty-something body. Hell, they don't even act like they're fifteen, but more like middle schoolers. Reed and Caroline knew when they were in the wrong and, instead of acting all stubborn about it, they actually acted on it and took lessons from their mistakes.
And let me say I have not read chemistry like this in a good looong while. Which was also surprising since I didn't expect there to be a lot of, let alone any, sex. But boy, was there. I like my books with a good bit of sex but also not the lovey-dovey kind, so I think this books might be just perfect for me.
I did kind of suspect some of the plot twist, but not enough to make the story boring. And I have to say, I don't think this book could ever be boring, with a guy like Reed. I can honestly say I will never look at suited-up, math guys the same again. In my head I will probably keep comparing them to Reed though. Could that guy be as bossy? As alpha? As hot under that shirt? As good and wild in bed? Even his passion for freaking maths turned me on a bit. And I don't think anyone would ever think mathemathics could be an aphrodesiac.
Let me just say, if you're turned off by this book because you think this is all about a gold-digger versus math nerd, please take my word for it and just dive in. You will never be as pleasantly surprised as with Redesigned....more
