Stripped of the last piece of my innocence in the middle of the Californian desert, I waited for death.
Then he appeared.

Absolution was the third book in the Heaven's Rejects MC by Avelyn Paige.

Jude "Ratchet" Azzo was the cleanup guy in the Heaven's Rejects MC. He was strong, dominant and a force not to mess with. He was protective and loyal to his Brotherhood at all costs.

Erica "Ricca" Delmont was introduced to us as Dani's roommate in the first book, Heaven Sent. She had a rough upbringing and through a continuous string of poor decisions, her adult life wasn't much better....yet.

During the previous book, Angels

Firstly I want to say thank you to the author for writing such a great MC book. I went through a phase of reading a lot of MC reads and I think I got burnt out. Now after reading this I wanna read more MC books.

This is Rachet and Riccas story. These two are oh so good together. I was so hoping they’d get their happy ever after.

Like previous books by this author I found this to be well written with a brilliant storyline.
If your looking for a gripping read with plenty of twists and turns then I

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Absolution is the third book in the Heaven's Rejects MC Series from Avelyn Paige. I read this book without having read the first books in this series.

Ricca can not outrun her past. A mistake she learned the hard way. Stripped of the last piece of her innocence in the middle of the Californian desert, I waited for death. Then Ratchet appeared. Her vengeful angel. He is everything she is not. Everything

Oh Avelyn how I have missed you. I have been waiting ever so patiently for this book and I am thrilled to finally be able to get it. The wait was worth it and Avelyn has once again delivered an wonderful book. I truly think this book is the best one yet.

The story line while heartbreakingly sad is also one that will bring hope to many. Neither of these characters has had an easy life but Ricca has by far been dealt such an awful hand. Needless to say she has a ton of trauma to overcome and she h

These books just keep getting better! Ricca & Ratchet will keep you on the edge of your seat. I couldn’t read it fast enough & then at the end I was by far not ready for it to be over. I’m so excited! I can’t wait for the next book! I’m totally hooked

With everything that Ricca has been through, she finds love with Ratchet. Of course that's with everything happening in her life.
Mandie Foxylutely
This is the third book in the Heaven’s Rejects MC series and although it could be read as a standalone I would suggest reading the series in order.

Rachet saved Ricca from a fate worse than hell and over time he became her constant, her safety. When they finally gave into their passion, Ricca misunderstands when Rachet is not there in the morning. When she receives some surprising news from back home, she takes off thinking there is nothing left for her at the MC. Fast forward six months and Rach

5 Star Review Absolution (Heaven's Rejects MC #3) by Avelyn Paige

This was am emotional roller coaster of a story.

What can I say about Jude aka Ratchet and Ricca? Their story nearly broke me. She has had such a tragic past, surviving more that anyone should have to put up with.

Ratchet is determined to make Ricca his but he will have to climb almost insurmountable walls to achieve his objective. She cannot break free from her past, it keeps pulling her back in and she cannot see a way out.

OMG, I just love this series. I was so excited to see another book being released in this series and then to top it off it was about Ratchet and Ricca.

Ricca had been through so much. I am not just talking about what happen with the Twisted Tribe but even farther back then that. As you are reading the story and finding about her childhood your heart will break. Yes, she had a lot of fear but she was truly strong as well.

There was so many favorite parts in the book but one of my favorite parts w

My love of MC is coming back... this book was everything I love in an MC read, it was dark, gritty with fiercely loyal MC members who protect their club with everything they have and are! Nothing comes between a member and the club and that was true for Ratchet until Ricca came along! A broken young lady with a tragic past, Ratchet, also had a tough and tragic upbringing, but he was her saviour the one person who could get close enough to be the light in her darkness;

Absolution was a great 5 star read.

We finally have Ratchet and Ricca’s story. These two had one night together, Ratchet had finally broke down Ricca’s walls and got to her heart. The next morning he had to leave for club business and Ricca didn’t realize this. Heartbroken she ends up leaving the club house and Ratchet has been searching for her.

What do you do when the person that you care about the most leaves you behind?

Ricca learned the hard way that outrunning your past is pretty much impossible. In the middle of the California desert she waited for death until the vengeful Angel appeared. He was everything she couldn't have.
Ratchet would be dead if it wasn't for for Jagger. He was abandoned by his mother and taken into the Heaven's Rejects life. He wants to save her from the pain that's inside her heart. He will stop at nothing to get through to her. Even if it's the last thing he does.

Well its about time! I have been waiting to get more from Rachet and Ricca since the last novel. And just as I hoped this novel not only didn't disappoint it was so much more then what I hoped it would be. We meet both of Rachet and Ricca in the other two novels in this series ( you can read as a stand alone, but I think you will enjoy it so much more with the whole story), there is so much that went on you can not help to wonde

The author states this was a difficult story to write. It was difficult to read--yet I could not put it down. Ricca and Ratchet are meant to be together. It isn't going to be easy and it isn't happening right away.
When he rescued her from the torture chamber of a drug lord, he knew. Whatever it took he would be with her. She'd never completely heal but he'd take her broken and all. He knows broken. He lives it.
He finally has her in his bed.
Yet, she wakes alone she isn't waiting around. She can

OMG the ending....I seriously yelled NO!!! I even messaged and called Avelyn a not very nice name bahaha!! Freaking floved this addition to this series.
Ricca has come such a long way from the girl whom was rescued from torture she went through. A phone call changes everything what will happen to her when she has to go back to where it all began?? Will she take responsibility or restart a downward spiral?? I love the person that Ricca ends up being during this

This is quite the page turner! Wonderfully exciting, hot and filled with enough action to keep you turning page after page to see what happens, who's behind the mess the female lead finds herself in and of course, to see how things will turn out in the end. And what an end!! Great lead into the next book that will have you chomping at the bit to get your hands on it.

The characters are well developed and quite complex. Ricca (Erica), has a horrid past, and an even more horrid recent past as she

Ratchet may be the enforcer/clean up man, but he has a heart of gold! He opens up to Ricca and helps her tremendously through her battles, and helps grounds her. They are what the other one needs. ❤️❤️❤️

Ricca has had a really cruddy life, so when Ratchet takes off to help the Heaven's Rejects she starts doubting their relationship.
When out of the blue she gets phone call that her mother is dead, and she has a brother she never knew about. Ricca takes off home to Kentucky to try and get custody

If you are looking for something to keep you company this weekend then you need look no further because once you are introduced to the formidable force that is Ricca and Ratchet you won’t want to put them down.
This had everything thrown into the mix and I honestly mean everything.
It had enough angst and attitude to sink a whole fleet of battleships but all of that was tempered by the romance that refused to be tempered at any stage.
While I loved the fact that the story was far from straight fo

I really am enjoying this series. Yes it was a long wait for book 3 but, in my opinion, it was so worth the wait and a great opportunity to reread from the beginning. We saw what happened to Ricca in book one and now in book 3 we get to see even more of Ricca’s past as something happens to have her racing to the one place she vowed to never return to... home!

Ratchet returned home from some club business to find Ricca had left. No note, no message… just gone. After spe

Absolution is a story about love conquering all. About trust. About believing there is good in another. Even though the water looks murky, wade through it and find your serenity.

There seems to be a knight in shining armor, in Jude “Ratchet” Azzo. Even if he rode in on a white horse, Ratchet never knew he could be this man, because he never had a reason to be this man. Until HER.

Erica “Ricca” Delmont was dealt a horrible hand in life. A mother who treated her like trash and then handed her over t

Absolution is the third installment in Heaven’s Rejects MC and my first time reading Avelyn Paige. This suspenseful story between Ricca and Ratchet will have you holding your breath to find out what will happen next in their journey.

With being new to this series, I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into. However, Absolution was well written and Paige made the characters flowed. Behind every MC, the brotherhood is strong. They stand beside one another. And when the brother calls, the MC comes

Absolution by Avelyn Paige is the 3rd book in the Heaven's Rejects MC.

This is my first read by this author and it won't be the last. These books can be read as standalone's and after reading Absolution I definitely want to read the first two.
Ricca has been through the kind of hell the Devil doesn't even deserve. This has got to be one of the strongest female characters I have read in a long time. Loved her. She's feisty and determined.

I loved Ratchet, not only did he save Ricca from hell, but

Recommends it for: Dark Romance Readers

I absolutely loved this book for many reasons fist off the Character names Ricca and Ratchet those are fabulous names.

But more importantly I loved these characters, broken dark souls that find the light. This truly was a fantastic read that left me with the feels. Ricca coming from a very dark place , along comes Ratchet who comes from a bad past just feels and sees her hurt. All he wants to do is fix her and give her a chance.

These 2 characters are on fire and I just wanted to keep on
