Through every drop of blood I spilled, I lost a piece of my soul. I’ve sacrificed seven long years and the woman of my life for the Family. With prison behind me, I’m finally taking the reins of my destiny. I won’t allow the choices of my past to define my future. But I’m not done fighting—not yet.

Eve is still out there.

I will stop at nothing to get her back.

”You will not escape your destiny. I choose who comes and who goes. Who will live and who will die.”

WOW! Jessica Ruben has done it again! I am BLOWN AWAY!!! I am basking in the biggest of emotional book comas. The final tale in the Vincent and Eve trilogy, Redemption is another can’t-put-it-down delight! An IRRESISTIBLE tale of thrills, terror, tenderness, and true love. I was ENAMORED from the first page and have been UTTERLY CONSUMED with every word of the Vincent and Eve world sin

“I’m staring at nothing but darkness, farther from redemption than I ever was.”

I have loved Vincent and Eve right from the very beginning of Rising and maintained this emotional adoration for these characters right up until the end of Redemption. As the realisation hit me that this stunning and incredible series has come to an epic conclusion, I now feel quite sad. I have been taken on an emotional and breathtaking journey full of so many highs, lows, twists and turns that I will def

Title: Redemption (Vincent and Eve #3)
Author: Jessica Ruben

I strive to be honest….
Rising hooked me… Vincent and Eve’s story enthralled me and I couldn’t get enough of these two.
Reckoning ruined me… 

As for Redemption?I had high hopes.

After the journey we’ve been through with Vincent and Eve, They are finally FINALLY together! 

Redemption was honestly a book packed full of intense emotional and passionate journey. Redemption takes you on a journey that has it’s ups and downs.

Whoa! Talk about an amazing conclusion to a great series! We get all the action and all the romance as Vincent & Eve get their second chance at love.

This book picks up 6 years after the end of Book 2 as Vincent is being released from his prison sentence. Vincent is a man on a mission. He has goals to open his casino, extricate himself from "the family" and of course reunite with Eve. Vincent!!! Excuse me while I fangirl a little. Talk about alpha male hotness in all his glory. This is the man y

Redemption is the PERFECT conclusion to the Vincent & Eve Trilogy. I couldn’t put it down! I thought I would die after the ending of Reckoning. I was so nervous to start this book. Vincent is out, he knows what he wants, and he is going after it! I love how the chemistry between him and Eve never fades. It’s so explosive!
My one wish for Eve after the last book was for her to find her strength and let me tell ya- she found it! A strong heroine who isn’t afraid to stand up for her man.... that is

RISING completely shook me, RECKONING wrecked me and REDEMPTION broke me down and built me back up again. REDEMPTION is one of my most anticipated reads this year and I DROPPED everything when it landed on my kindle!

There's a certain tone to Jessica's writing. It has a rhythm, a beat. Her words are real and raw. Laced with danger and clouded with grit. I absolutely couldn't get enough of Vincent and Eve. Their story is a rough a dark fairytale with an ex army security guard as their fairy godmo

Unfortunately didn't love this one as much as the other two. I was still happy to read about Eve and Vincent. It might have just been a little rushed and alot predictable. Do recommend this to anyone who loves mafia books.

Rising hooked me, Reckoning ruined me and Redemption !!!! Well Redemption consumed me.

So the second and I mean it, the second Redemption hit my kindle I dove in and didn't come up for Air until I hit The End. One of my most anticipated reads this summer, I've been DYING for Redemption and the conclusion to Vincent and Eve.

After being rocked to the core at the end of Reckoning I've been desperate to see what happens next for Vincent and Eve. So far the journey has been quite the ride. It's been

Was given the honour of reading an ARC for an honest review and let me tell you I was estatic when this appeared on my kindle made my week.

Now this is Jessicas debut series and let me just say she knows how to begin her writing career with a bang. If this is her first series I can just imagine what coming next. Vincent and Eves amazing rollercoaster of a journey started in Rising then went on to Reckoning then concludes in Redemption. There story is not an easy one as the was romance heartbreak

How do you say goodbye? Parting is such sweet sorrow, is that the saying? Book three finds us in turmoil (yes I say us) but it has Vincent working towards having his happily ever after, no matter who is left bloodied and bruised along the way! Questions answered, more asked, and love that never had it's chance may finally be..The finale left me wanting more yet completely sated, I believe this is because

I'm not a reader that holds off until all the books in a series are out before reading. I don't mind cliffhangers. I don't mind anxiously anticipating the release of the next installment. But I do have to wonder, in this instance, if I had read this trilogy back to back, if this third book would've felt a bit more fluid with the rest of the series. 

A significant amount of time has past between when book 2 ends and book 3 begins, and with that time has come a lot of personal growth and change for

***Spoiler alert – You must read Rising & Reckoning before reading this review***

…”now that I’m free, it’s time I redeem myself.”

The story of Vincent and Eve comes to a conclusion in Redemption. This trilogy is the debut for author Jessica Ruben and what a way to enter the literary world! She didn’t just step in, she crashed in, full force! Rising was heart stopping! It grabbed me from the first page and didn’t let go until I was jumping from a cliff! Reckoning gave me the biggest book hang-over

I didn't think Vincent could get any hotter how.wrong I was. The. Vincent after jail is. Pure sinful, the man was sexy beast before now he is a certified God. He definitely hold his own a d then some. Honestly he's perfect in my eyes. Eve the girl is strong, but let's face it she lives for Vincent, I don't think sje couid get away from him if she tried. These two as re sown together, the spark the connection is strong. It couid catch fire just from the passion Ms the heat. Now I would love for S ...more

A mushy mess. That’s me right now, thanks to Jessica Ruben dragging me through the bloody wringer through 3..Yes THREE amazing books, centred around the love, loss & longing of one very special couple ~ Vincent & Eve.

My love affair with this pair started in Rising, became obsessive in Reckoning, but lord when the boy became a man & focused on nothing but winning back his woman in Redemption..... Ruined is what it left me come the end. Gahhhhh my heart almost couldn’t take it I swear.

Vincent, oh
3 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 Stars! I expected a little more. It felt a little rushed and not as much substance. It could have used an epilogue.

Redemption is a breathtakingly masterful story of finding your heart, your voice, and your determination after you have lost your very soul. Nothing will destroy your world as surely as having your heart ripped to shreds. It will sink its cold and poisonous fangs into every part of your life – the good and the bad. Until you choose to take your heart and life back, you will always feel like a helpless passenger and never the empowered driver. When your yearning and desperate heart spoils the vie ...more
What a wild ride! Redemption is book 3 in the Vincent and Eve series. It is not a stand-alone and the series must be read in order as it follows the same hero and heroine. Redemption picks up 6 1/2 years after the final events in the previous book, Reckoning. Possible spoilers ahead if you have not read Rising and Reckoning. As the book begins we see Vincent finally free from his prison term. A new and hardened man. What has remained, however, is his love for Eve. Our heroine has worked diligent ...more

The wait is serious agony right now.
Vincent has returned....

It’s been several years since he’s set his eyes on Eve, who in turn has truly grown into the woman she dreamed of becoming whilst growing up in the blue houses.
They agree to keep it strictly business upon meeting back up with each other, Eve is determined never to go back to what they both shared in the past who needs heartbreak twice.

Vincent the macho dominant sexy alpha is learning to slow himself down so he can redeem himself, proving his loyalty to the defiant Eve, s

The books starts with Vincent leaving prison and Eve having continued with her life. The bond that they shared in the first two books carried on in the third and it was great to see that they hadn’t lost their connection.
The couple still have to fight however to get their happy ending but it was an ending that left me satisfied and was a great conclusion to a great series.
I look forward to seeing what the author brings out next.

After sticking with the couple through the first two books, I was anticipating loving this book and eagerly looked forward to the reunion. Sadly, I didn't like this one as much as the first two as it came up against my high expectations.

I really liked how Vincent and Eve had matured but there were definitely things about this book that felt less thoughtful than the first two. I had so many head scratching moments in this book, I was shocked compared to the first two books* (view spoiler)

My heart aches for this couple.

Blogger’s note: There are spoilers ahead if you have not read the previous book.



Set years after Reckoning ended (let’s not forget about that cliffhanger) Eve has a life now, she’s successful, she’s finally out of the blue houses, but like any other love story she’s not entirely happy. There’s a hole that only one man can fill but she thinks that man left her

I was DYING to get my hands on this book. After reading the first two, which were phenomenal by the way, I needed to know that Vincent & Eve were going to be o.k.

REDEMPTION takes place seven years after the events of the RECKONING.
This book seemed slightly different than the first two and both Vincent & Eve changed. Vincent is still an asshole, but a more toned down version. He's changed and it's all for Eve. As for Eve, I found her quite ignorant at times. There must've been a part

You know what I can't get into? When the love interest disappears and then shows back up only for the protagonist to take them back with barely an apology. That doesn't happen in this book, and I LOVE it. Eve moved on with her life essentially and when Vincent shows back up, she questions whether or not she wants to start something back up with him despite the strong pull they have toward each other (which is what a smart woman would do, duh!).  Once they'r

Jessica Ruben has solidified her place in my treasure trove of authors to follow. This series is addictive and leaves the reader needy. Like stage 5 clinger needy!!

So of course, I was freaking out when Redemption hit my kindle. Are you kidding!?! There was a message chain alert saying it hit kindles and to watch out for it!

And to say it was perfect...well, it is.

Vincent and Eve have never had anything easy. Their lives, their relationship, and their futures! Noth
