Enjoyed this second chance story. Rake left the relationship with Bailey thinking she'd cheated. Reality was much worse. Now Bailey is back in town and she's reconnected with his sister and that puts the only woman to break the womanizing Rake's heart back into the forefront of his life. Rake and Bailey have a lot to work through. Add some danger and the plot thickens. I liked the writing and characters. The loving was sexy as hell. The development was done just right. It isn't always easy to tr ...more

I had mixed feelings about starting this book mainly because Rake was such a manwhore it was going to be difficult for anyone romantically entering his life.
That woman is Bailey, his first love.
Now it's obvious they spilt on bad terms but it takes forever to actually find out what happened, I'm not known for my patience and it was driving me nuts. It's nearly halfway in when we find out what changed the life of these two although by this point I'd more or less worked

Adam and Bailey were high school lovers that thought they would last a lifetime. Young and in love, they had plans to grow old together and never leave the others side. But those plans fell apart and they went there separate ways to deal with the heartbreak. Several years later they run into each other, both at very different points in their life.

This was a really nice reading. I enjoyed it very much. I loved Rake from the previous books and when I read about his past in "Tracker's End" I got really intrigued. I have a soft spot for second chance love so I was a goner from the very first moment I read about his high school sweetheart.

This one was better than the previous book in this series, though nowhere near as good as the first book. I just don't know what happened to this series. The first book was so funny and the characters were a bit endearing, not to mention the feisty heroine...

Ah is what it is. The heroine in this book wasn't as bad as shy and awkward Lana, but she still had some TSTL moments... at least that's how I feel.

Still not giving up though...I will finish this series...eventually ;)

Self Note:

And I'm done with this series. After reading all the previous books, and only one of them being safe and free of cheating, not even my OCD will push me to read this one! Thank you for all the reviews which allowed and warned me in advance about all the cheating in this one. Definitely not touching it, and I part ways with the series at this point! Even though the author's writing is great, I can't stomach this constant cheating advocacy, like that is supposed to be standard behavior, a

2.5 Meh

It might be a case of "it's not you, it's me", but this book was kinda... well, not boring, but close enough. I wanted more from it, it lacked that it that makes a book great, or at least pretty good.

And I kind of felt like it was rushed, especially the last part.

Not an awful read, but I just wanted more.

Rake/Adam's story.

Bailey and Adam were sweethearts and were supose to marry, have kids and etc...
Bailey and Adam interaction was hatred all the way. They did mistakes in the past and now they have changing-Bailey has a daughter and Adam is a MC who is a manhore. Rake hates and loves Bailey yet he could not stand that she is in the same place as him and see her doing anything with any man.

“I’m concerned,” I admit, looking around at all the beautiful women. “Do you miss this at all? The public sex, the threesomes, the many stunning women at your disposal . . . ?”

“No, I don’t. I had my fun, Bailey. I played around, fucked around. Now I just want you. I still get to have fun, just with only you, and I want that. I wouldn’t have it any other way,” he says sincerely, eyes pleading with me to understand.

Ok I’m a sucker for the second chance romance. So I will say that I absolutely adore this set up. Single mother and the guy who broke her heart manage to find one another again? Sign me up.

Rake was the man whore to beat all man whores and honestly I didn’t think I would like seeing him get more. But he did manage to change and make it believable. Bonus that he did reflect on his poor behavior towards Bailey and make things better.

Bailey has a heart as big as her balls which makes her such a comp

We have heard about Rake for a long while now, that he was a womanizer and that Rake had certain preferences that were almost legend. Now with who Rake was I couldn't wait to see how the author pulled this off and made Rake who is a well a rake fall in love and settle down. I have been waiting for this book and counting down the days till the release. When I saw this book on NetGallery I couldn't click request fast enough and thank goodness I got it, yes I only got to read this book a few days e ...more

Definitely not worth the wait. Pathetic story, what there was of it.

Pathetic doormat heroine who brushes away the massive wrongs that Rake was responsible for. Disgusting really that she lets him off the hook without fuss.

Pathetic Rake - seriously pathetic. Way too cocky about being the biggest manwhore in the club, to the h no less. Really tacky and indefensible considering how much he wronged the h. He should've been made to pay for that, I would've broken his bloody jaw not opened my legs for

4 Redeeming stars!!

Rake's Redemption is one of my new favourites by Chantal Fernando. I have read all her book and this is one is definitely in my top five. The wind Dragons MC are brothers with a passion for their women and I love them all. I would love a Wild Men MC series as well. Talon, Ranger and Slice definitely need their stories told.

Rake and Bailey were meant to be you could see that from the very beginning. Their high school romance was envied by many and that was their downfall when

An enjoyable, emotional and intense story!! Once again the author delivered a beautifully written book in the Wind MC series. The fourth installment is about Bailey's and Rake's (Adam) time to learn their romance story in the past and of course in the present, this "recipe" had almost everything from funny/enjoyable dialogues to action/suspense and emotional/turmo

4 you will always be the love of my lifestars. I was so pumped for Rake's story from the moment Bailey stumbled by him at the club and he lost his shit. Yes, this book has been a big anticipation for me and it didn't let me down. Rake, the sexual, dominant, gorgeous yet broken man finds his redemption and second chance with the one who holds his heart.

From the other books it isn't hard to understand why Rake was nicknamed Rake. He goes through women like a thirsty man goes through water. He eve

Rake’s Redemption is the fourth book in the Wind Dragons MC series, and we finally get Rake’s story!

Rake is definitely a player, but he hasn’t always been that way. Not until Bailey broke his heart, seven years before. Now, Bailey is back in the picture and feelings are all over the place, and they are either pushing each other away or pulling each other closer.

This book kept me turning the pages, as I was so intrigued to find out what had happened for them to break up. When the truth comes out

Rake’s Redemption is a story I have been pretty excited for and boy I love it when we see the playboy of the group get taken by love and this book was a lot more angsty than I was expecting but ironically this angst was really well done, one of the best enemies to lovers romances I have read in a long while and really enjoyed the explosive chemistry that is introduced into this story.

I always look forwarding to reading a book from the Wind Dragon series, because they are always fun and entertaining reads. Even though this book was my least favorite book of the series, I still really enjoyed it.

I loved seeing all of the characters from the previous books! They are all fantastic characters, and it was so nice to see them all interact again. Bailey, the main character of this book, was great. I enjoyed her commentary a lot! I thought she was a smart woman who had a

"Love isn't enough, at least not this time."

Wind Dragon's MC is one of my favorite series. I've become very attached to the characters and have anxiously waited for Rake's story. There have been hints of his kinkiness and I wanted confirmation - LOL. What I didn't expect was the Rake that I got to know in this book. He wasn't all laid back and easy going, not the life of the party. He had issues that I was very curious to understand. I wanted to be one of the girls so I could gossip and
