Have you ever done something unforgivable? Something you can in no way justify, and because of that, you feel like you could never be redeemed? Kyle Sterling has. He doesn’t remember all of the details, but he knows he has done something horrible to the one woman he’s ever loved.
“I didn’t,” I say aloud to myself. “I wouldn’t have.”
But did I? Was it possible? Even to her?

Kyle wants to apologize, find some way to make it up to Emmy, but she’s gone. Disappeared. Now he

4.5 Redeeming stars!!

I have to start off by saying that I always knew I love Kyle Sterling even his darkest hours.

This book is Kyle's book after the whole fiasco with Emmy in Accidently on Purpose.

That book was a crazy love triangle with Emmy, Kyle and Lucas.

Emmy was Kyle's drug and he loved her but sometimes that love is toxic and isn't enough.
Kyle was forced to be with Jessyca and Emmy was his secret. Living and being a drug addict didn't help Kyle either and he broke Emmy and himself in the p

I always had a bit of a thing for Kyle ... He broke my heart in Accidentally on Purpose, Worthy picks up two years after the violent and devastating end of his relationship with Emmy. He broke Emmy and broke himself too, if I'm really honest I was a little unsure about this book, because deep down I really wanted Kyle and Emmy to have another chance at what they had had, but as soon as we are introduced to Lily I fell in love with her too.
I always knew that Kyle was Worthy of Redemption, I never

I'm too excited about this. I know I know but I felt bad for him (not excusing him), just thought he needed help and needed to get away from his dad!!!!!.....well that's how I felt after reading AOP, there was something about Kyle that was familiar and I knew his pain ran deep. But what I didn't know was just how broken he himself was.

I have to give it L.D. Davis, she nailed it for me in this book. I know many people hated Kyle, thought what he did was inexcusable but I felt a connection with hi

Anyone who reads my reviews KNOWS how much I hate(d) Kyle Sterling. That man aggravated every fiber of my being in Accidentally On Purpose. I hate him so much, I didn't even want him to have his own story.....

He's a piece of shit...

Pieces of shit don't deserve to have their story told....

So I'm also a woman, and women are allowed to change their mind.

*Clears throat*

I love Kyle now.

You really shouldn't judge someone until you know their story.

If you have been a follower of mine for a long time you would know how much I freakin’ love the book Accidentally on Purpose. It was one of my top books of 2012 and a book I have read over and over again. A.O.P played with my emotions in every way and I absolutely loved it!

4.5 stars!!

“I know you want me, I know you love me, but you don’t need me. You still need Emmy. That’s why you cried last night,” she touched her neck with remembrance. “Because as strongly as you feel for me, you don’t need me. I’m not enough. I just wish I didn’t need you too.”

OMG, how could I fall in love with Kyle Sterling…I loathed him after Accidentally on Purpose, even though I loved him too…I felt his pain, I knew there must have been a solid reason behind

I loved Accidentally on Purpose and I, like most people who read it, was not a fan of Kyle's at all. When I found out that he would be getting his story I could not wait to read it. I needed to know all about Kyle. Why he was the way he was, what happened to him that caused all that pain and I needed to know about that night that would forever haunt him. L.D.

Wow! I loved this book! I was hooked by the end of the Prologue and barely put the book down until it was done.

I didn't think I would since even though I didn't want Emmy and Kyle together... I didn't want him with anyone else. But then along came Lilly. She was a really great heroine. Instead of being broken by her past, she was stronger because of it. She put things out there and really kept Kyle in line. My heart hurt for Lilly abo

Note - I suggest reading book one, Accidentally On Purpose, before reading book two, Worthy of Redemption, so you fully understand the history and story of the characters involved.

4.5 stars. I liked this one sooo much better than Accidentally on Purpose! Kyle was still very flawed, and a little too weak for my taste but Lily rocked! I want to be her! She made the book! She was exactly what Kyle needed to help him learn to be a better person. I now realize that Emmy was not good for him, she was a trigger. Lily was hope. Although Kyle had many flaws, he was not lacking in the Sexy as Hell department! He was ON FIRE even more so than in book 1, now if he could have only tak ...more

I left 'Accidentally on Purpose' not sure how I felt about Kyle. He had done some really screwed up crap. Although there was a fairly large gap in the reading time of AOP and WOR I couldn't remember who I liked more, Luke or Kyle.. Did I like Kyle with Emmy, I knew I did, but I think the things that he had done in AOP turned me off a bit..

When WOR started, I could see his turmoil, and for the majority of the book, I wanted Emmy to come back, I wanted her baby to be his and I wanted them to get

Buddy read with Nicole.

This is Kyle's book and is told in dual POV with Lily.

I was devastated at the end of book one that Emmy didn't choose Kyle. I understand why she chose Luke but even after reading this book and loving Lily and Kyle together I still wanted Emmy with Kyle.

We find out about Kyles past and childhood. What he lived through and why he did what he did. He broke my heart and I did shed some tears for the beautiful man for whom I will always have a soft spot.

Lily is a strong heroi

Ok if I was good at GIFs and pics to show what I think the written "characters" should look like I would find who the chest belongs to on the cover..(maybe his face is a disaster and that is why there is only chest shot?) Um yumm! Enough of that back to the book. I was one of the twisted chicks that LOVED Kyle in AOP. Yes he was a crystal meth sniffing, lying dirtbag but he was hot and I love me a bad boy. I wasn't cheering on Kyle and Emmy though,

Lily works as Kyle's personal assistant...Just like Emmy was. Is history going to repeat itself? Lily isn't the typical type of woman Kyle dates, but she catches his eye nonetheless.

Pssst, hey, hey you, yeah you.
You aren't planning on reading this book are you?

This book was far worse than I was expecting, this book dragged on for far too long, and I'm not sure how I coped through it. The story-line is severely faulted, with lots of inconsistencies. This book was also fairly predictable,

You need to read the series the order so read Accidentally on Purpose before you read Worthy of Redemption.

However it is my book reviewing obligation to plead with the author . Yes beg , plead, request whatever I have to do . But PLEASE LD PLEASE continue the story of Kyle & Lilly!!

OMG I loved this book. I am so happy I got a chance to read it. This book took me on an emotional roller coaster. I didn't want to put it down.

Lily is a girl with a lot of issues. She had a rough life, she is dealing with the feelings she has for Kyle. She knows he doesn't want her, but it still doesn't stop her from wanting him. How can she have the guy she wants the most and protect her heart?

Ah Dammit, I really loved this book. I'm not even going to try and defend Kyle to many of you but he deserved his redemption. I'm undecided if I personally would've forgiven him. But whatever he proved there was a "good" side to him. Stalkerish side, lol. What I really enjoyed most was that even throughout his

Where to begin with how amazing this story was! I think the title itself "Worthy of Redemption" is perfectly fitting because Mr. Kyle Sterling sure does redeem himself in every aspect to me throughout this story.

Kyle, Kyle, Kyle….I have to say there was always something about him from the get go that seemed to pull at my heartstrings. Even when he can be a jerk sometimes. Underneath all the drama, crap, the angst & him fighting his inner demons I still always rooted for him. I was rooting for hi

Upon reading "Worthy of Redemption," I honestly had a preconceived notion that it would not live up to its predecessor, "Accidentally On Purpose." Let me say for the record, I. Was. Wrong! This sequel really tugged on my heart strings, and Kyle Sterling's story captivated me from start to finish. 

I was not prepared to embrace Kyle and his new love interest, Lily. In the beginning, I found myself thinking that they were a mismatched pair. But as their story unfolded, I started to become cons

By the end of the first book Kyle was dead to me. Nothing could excuse or redeem his behaviour. When I saw the title of this, I thought ha, that'd better be good.

Loved, loved this continuation of Kyle's story, who we left in Accidentally, having lost Emmy, but had managed to completely break her :-(

We start to gain an understanding of the drink fuelled, bar barfer and what has led to his own single handed self persecution parade. He starts a dialogue with Lily, Emmy's SHOTZ friend, and there forges an unlikely alliance between them.

I like the way the story advanced, and I enjoyed Lily's character and how she challenged Kyle's perception of himself. I als
