Wow! Redemption by Alla Kar was hot, fast-paced and all sorts of exciting! I can’t say that the novel was flawlessly written, but it definitely caught my attention and had me rooting for Rage and Neveah from the moment they met! These two characters were a perfect mix with their off-the-charts chemistry and fair share of obstacles.

Rage Cohen has one thing on his mind the moment he’s released from prison, and that is to save his younger sister from the clutches of the drug lord Dexter who was the

I absolutely LOVED this book. I'm so sick of alpha billionaires that simply look at a girl and she's pulling off her underwear. I wanted to see the tension and connection, I found it in this book. I swooned for hours.


And you'll see why when you read it! YOU MUST READ IT!

Rage Cohen is unbelievably sexy and strong.


Not to mention Nevaeh our mc. She's so strong which is a relief from all the weak mc's lately. I LOVE HER and HIM. I can't wait for the second installment SALVATION! AHHH!

Can he be the man she deserves and will she let her guard down to love again

Neveah's reaction when she learn's of her fiancee's infidelity is not typical. She's not heart broken, she's mad and maybe a little glad that she didn't go ahead with her plans to marry. She returns home to Huntsville and her priorities at the moment are simple--spend time with her father, get her life back on track. Her plans change when she encounters a badly beaten man in the woods near her home while out on an morning run. Neveah's not looking to get involved, but her attraction to the myste ...more

This book is told my the perspectives of Neveah and Rage. Neveah, a 21-year-old, who has just returned home to her father, Wes, after breaking up with her cheating fiancee. Neveah breaks up with her fiancee in grand style. Neveah was raised by her father after her mother died when Neveah was very young. Neveah’s father owns and operates a boxing gym and has trained Neveah very well in the art of boxing. She’s one bad ass!

Rage, aka, Declan Samuels, has just been released from prison after being s
I'm so happy I got the chance to read Redemption. It pretty much has everything I love in a romance novel.

Sexy/bad ass/over protective Alpha male? Check.
Funny, headstrong Heroine? Check.
Funny and/or sexy secondary characters? Check (for some reason I have an odd fascination with Nevaehs dad lol)
Interesting plot line? Check
Dirty talk? Omg hell yes!

I really enjoyed this book. I found Neavehs character funny, sassy and determined. Some of her inner monologue was just hilarious. Now, Rage Cohen..
This book caught my eye because it was set in Huntsville Texas. I went to college in Huntsville so to say that I am very fond of the town in an understatement.

Match that with a fighter romance and oh boy... this girl is in serious trouble.

This book is pretty typical of fighter romance. Girl hates boy, oh wait girl actually wants to have sex with boy and boy & girl fall for each other.

This is the formula. Under normal circumstances I would constantly roll my eyes... but make it a fighter roman
great story! I will be watching for sequels to this story for sure. Even though the H pushes the h away at first, he was trying to keep his promise. He was a great alpha who only had eyes for the h. Loved the secondary characters as well. This is my first book that I've read by Alla Kar and certainly not my last ...more

This is the first book that I read from this author and it will not be the last. The book starts off fantastic and I have to say I loved Neveah’s personality. She was full of spunk and didn’t take crap from no one until she meets up with Rage. Even than she gives him a run for his money. Both characters were strong headed and I loved the chemistry and flirting that went on between them. You could tell that they were attracted to each other but tried to keep their dist

Rage was in heaven, and the Angel smiled upon him – and so did I!

Despite his past, and perhaps because of his future plans – to save his sister- I loved Rage. His cockiness was offset by a touch of chivalry, and his strength and dedication were Swoon-worthy (pun intended). He is brazen, large, and in charge, and could be the poster boy for alpha male.

With a soft, feminine inside protected by a tough, hard-as-nails coating, Nevaeh can hold her own, except when it comes to her attraction to Rage.

Rage has a lot to hide. He was left for dead and found by Nevaeh. Her dad has warned them to stay away from each other but, you can't help who you fall in love with.

Nevaeh has just busted her fiance cheating on her and gone home to her dad's to get over it when she stumbles across Rage on the riverbank left for dead. She knows he is trouble but can't stay away from him. She knew from the start he was hiding something and when he eventually tells her, it has the opposite ef

This was a DNF for me. First, trying to overlook the name Neveah was impossible. That name annoys the crap out of me (and I am a teacher-I have seen some ridiculously annoying names but this one is the top of my annoying list). Second, the plot was off for me. I can't exactly say it was slow, but maybe I thought it was. Maybe it just didn't click with me. Whatever the reason, I just could not get into this book. It had all the markings of a perfect read for me: bad boy, MMA, and danger. It just ...more
