It's Roxie's first day at her new job as an assistant to lawyer Grant. He's a very 'difficult' man - the longest an assistant ever lasted was one day!
But Roxie needs this job. She needs the money to feed herself, her aunt, and her 8 month old daughter Lucy. Plus, she has lots of debts: lawyers, college ...
Grant has just come back to work after a little time-out after his divorce. Too bad his wife works here too - she's the niece of the boss! Plus, she's the lead attorney on the case Grant wants

Oh I cannot believe how much I thoroughly enjoyed this book. When I first started reading it, I wasn't sure I was going to like it but after the first chapter, I was hooked.

The author gave the characters such wit and intelligence, it was hard not to laugh out loud. It's one of those rare 'unputdownable' books.

I loved Roxie's character. As a single parent she's had it tough but she's got this independent quality that you couldn't help but admire. Grant's character was one of those you love from t

It's 4.5 stars for me!
I love it when I find a great book slipping under the radar and can do my part to recommend it. It's an absolute page-turner.
I'me delighted to say Roxi is a real-life badass and I can't be more proud of her..go girl!!! Kind of tired of the doormat, weak, needy stereotype I normally find in many Romance books. I love to see a fierce working, no bullshit, street smart woman in my books.
The plot is VERY interesting, there is a high profile murder case going on where Grant's b

I received a copy of this book through NetGalley for my honest review.

3.5 stars - I absolutely loved the lead characters in this story. Roxie was truly a woman I'd like to be - sassy, smart, brave, strong, and puts up with no BS. She is unapologetically who she is. Grant is a alpha asshole, but has a beautiful heart of gold. He just needs Roxie to bring out the best in him. This was a case of loving the characters, but I just couldn't get into the storyline itself. I found it confusing and it di

I Voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book

Roxie took a job as an assistant to a lawyer Grant Newland. Grant has just come back from a hiatus where he left his job as he was getting a divorce. Taking this job she was warned about Grant being a slave driver and a difficult person to work with, as assistants didn't last past the first day.
But Roxie had to take this job as she needed to take care of her 8month old daughter by herself. So taking this job would be a plus for her as they promised her

Resisting Redemption is an absolutely amazing read from Amabel Daniels. I am new to the works of Ms. Daniels, but after reading this brilliant book I will be immersing myself in her books whenever I get the chance. I loved this romantic suspense; it was quite an addictive read- it had mystery, intrigue, drama, fear, danger, some action, and so much more.
I won’t bother going into plot details, as the blurb does a better job than I could ever do, and I really don’t want to give away any spo

This book was amazing! I wasn't sure who the killer was until the end. Usually I can figure it out but almost everyone either had a motive or would benefit from the crime. The twists at the end of the book had my head spinning. I might have fist pumped a few times because dang!
Grant started off as a harda$$ but he's got good reason to be. Roxie shook him up quite a bit. By the end of the book Grant is this sweet, marshmallow of a man. Roxie stays the same. She's just hands down amazing.

Grant has reasons to be the way he is and so does Roxie. These two crack me up, the suspense just about killed me, there were steamy scenes, scenes you just wanted to hug them and THEN there was the ex of Grant's. I wanted to smack the crap out of her!!! UGH!!!!

A new author to me and I will definitely be checking out her other books!!!

Resisting Redemption is a 5 star read! When Roxie is hired as a PA to a demanding lawyer, Grant, she has no idea that the job she originally accepts because of the huge bonus attached to it, will end up changing her life and introducing her to the man that will come to matter more to her than anyone else in the world, save for her daughter, Lucy.

I admit I was a little leery to read, once I read that Grant hated kids. I mean come on, anyone who hates kids can't possibly be redeemed. But, Grant so

Resisting Redemption is the first book I have had the privilege of reading by new to me author Amabel Daniels. From the first page I was sucked into this story, a story that didn’t let up one iota until the very end. It’s not often that the romance of the book takes a back seat to the mystery in the story line for me as a reader, this book accomplished just that.
This is the story of Roxie Malone and Grant Newland. Roxie has just been hired as personal assistant to criminal attorney Grand Newlan

The Story
The story started on a good note. It hooked me from the moment Grant and Roxie met to the time the case closed. I thought the author did an excellent job in blending the elements of romance, mystery, suspense and drama, creating an intriguing read. The story flowed beautifully, the pacing steady and the plot well developed.

The Romance
One of the things I enjoyed about this story was the development of the romance between protagonists. I loved the way they interacted with each other. Humo

Resisting Redemption by Amabel Daniels is a great legal novel added in the sassy assistant, the moody lawyer and you have the makings of a great slow burn romance.

This is the first story I have read by this author and enjoyed the slow burn of the story and the witty back and forth of the two main characters. Add in the threat of saving a man for being accused of a murder he did not do you have a great story.

I have to admit that I was a little shocked by how much I loved this story. I really didn’t think I would like Grant much as he was such a cranky character, and a little uppity. But watching how his character developed throughout the story was truly enjoyable. He definitely got kicked in the teeth by his witch of an ex and then went into a downward spiral, but he was able to pick himself back up and come back to the one place that he knew he never wanted to come to help save a friend.

The plot-line was developed, maintained the focus of the story (rather than the main duo's burgeoning relationship), and was articulately expressed.

Resisting Redemption by Amabel Daniels was a mixture of romance, suspense, intrigue and murder mystery all rolled into one. Resisting Redemption is the story of Roxie, a single mother just trying to get by, and how she comes into a job with a man no one can work for and her determination to make things work for her child. I fell in love with Roxie’s characters immediately, not only because she was a sarcastic spit fire but because she was willing to do anything for her child. Her new boss, Grant ...more

So...I totally dropped the ball on this book. It's completely my fault. I meant to read and review this book sooner, but well...I suck! So I got my butt in gear and read this book. I'm honestly sorry I didn't read it sooner. Amabel Daniels did an amazing job with this book. I have to say, it was a breath of fresh air to read a book where the characters didn't have sex within the first two chapters. 

Grant and Roxie are some of my favorite character
