Everyone deserves a second chance, but not for the same mistake. At least according to Brooklyn Tanner. Over the course of their long, complicated friendship, she’s given Andrew Brinks more than enough chances. What has she received in return? Heartache. Pain. Agony.

But also love, as cruel and beautiful as it’s always been between them.

Can she put herself through that agai

Drew & Brooklyn.

I wanted to rated this trilogy a little low but I just felt that it's a 4 deserving stars for my heartache and tears, lol but honestly Drew and Brooklyn's final book really had me hating them both. It just felt too dragged on for me and in all this story I adored the girls and most of all Wes, yes I'm a traitor and have to say that Wes owned this book.

I hate second part stories but I did love part one and I almost missed part 2. I didn't.
I loved these characters. The premise is hard to believe but nonetheless it's a story of passion and pain.

Fun read.

I can't say I liked this one very much. It felt like reading the first book all over again.
The book was slow peace and it couldn't hold my attention. And I just couldn't warm up to Brook. I really didn't like her.
The romance felt too forced to me.
The constant push and pull between Brooke and Drew was boring and again I didn't like the way she treated Wes. That sex scene with him was distasteful. I really didn't liked it. I fell like Brooke was to immature.
This book had a great potential but

This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased, honest opinion.

This is book two in the Redemption series. You must read book one, Commitment, first. I also highly recommend reading the prequel, Promise, because it adds a lot to the series.

At the beginning of the book I struggled to root for Brooklyn to be with either Wes or Drew. There was always the promise of something great between either couple but there were so many obstacles in the way. I just got tired of the back and forth. Should she be w

My stupid ass didn’t realize this was a sequel but ended up starting it anyway. But minutes into the book I could already tell I was going to hate the heroine. The heroine told herself that she felt guilty because it seemed like cheating to fantasize about another guy when she was having sex with another.

Sweetie? It didn’t just “seem” like cheating? You are emotionally cheating, you stupid ass. What kind of question is that?! Zero brain cells.

These 2 really the back and fourth like GROW UP say the truth , tell how you feel stop over analyzing it. That was the thing that drove me nuts. You have to let the past go to move on.. Finally they both spoke the truth and it didnt crush anyone and finally be able to move past the crap of the past

Brooklyn still so wishy washy still not sure if falling her heart is worth the risk or settle .I hated she just couldnt let it go it took her so long to just let it go.

Redemption Series Book 2

Wow!! What a conclusion to a fantastical angsty series!! 

The story continues with Brooklyn,  Andrew and Wes.  This story picks up right where the first one ends.

The fight and heartbreak the characters have to face and overcome is such a emotional rollercoaster. I could feel myself tearing up when I was reading.  I was rooting for each of the main characters in this! The way that Ms. Leigh writes, I could feel and "see" how each of them were feeling and the happiness, love

Wow this story. It starts right where the first one leaves off at. Has way more emotions like grab tissues. TK really out did herself with this one. Every page was different, like edge of your seat read, quick to turn the pages, can't get enough Drew and Brooklyn. The characters this time around are 10 times hotter and better. The banter that they all share is out of this world amazing and one you can't stop enjoying over and over again. This love story that surrounds the characters is one that' ...more

Does this duet end with a bang! I wanted to yell and scream but I also understood where Brooklyn was coming from. Being shattered over and over again, she cannot deny her heart. It broke me watching her and Drew with their tug of war that they had going on. Then there were these unexpected twist and turns that get thrown at both of them. Between Wes and his mother, Drew’s ex wife and ex fling throwing things at them, I am surprised at how things all played out. Will Brooklyn pick Drew or stay wi ...more

Wow, just wow. Redemption picks up right where Commitment leaves off and takes off running!

Brooklyn and Drew are still circling around each other. Still trying to make decisions. Still trying to figure out the future. Brooklyn especially since the big day is looming. Does she follow her heart or her head?

And Drew needs to figure things out too. With the big, complicated surprise that lands at his feet, he has a lot to think about and how that surprise just may change his life and his family.

What I loved about this book was that Brooklyn’s father told her the truth. It hurt but he needed to do it. Drew wouldn’t give up on Brooklyn. Quitting was not in his vocabulary. He knew he hurt her. It broke him, and he hoped she would give him a second chance. But it might not be enough since he broke his promise to her. He saw her but she was his sister best friend..things were not as easy back then. So he did what he thought was best he ran.

Will she play it a safe with her heart, or take a

Wow! Whatta ending to this beautiful duet!! I was completely consumed by this story of love, friendship and soul deep bonds that stand the test of time. Redemption took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride that I had no desire to disembark from. I was hooked from page one and was a little sad that it had to come to an end.

This book was given to me at my request and I provided this review voluntarily.

I don’t think I have had this much anticipation for a book to come out as I had for this one. At the end of commitment I knew which way I wanted the story to go but of course Tk likes to throw some nice little twists and therefore I’ve come to kind of expect the unexpected with her, and knew I would have to just wait and see. WELL- oh man. Let me start by saying I loved these characters since I met them in Writing Mr. Right, and even more so with each book. Although I wish the outside forces wor ...more

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.

When the previous book ended, Brooklyn had a choice to make and we find out right away what that choice is. (BTW this is one thing that I really like about TK's writing. She may give us a cliffhanger, but it is usually resolved pretty quickly.) But of course things aren't as simple as they seem. (They never really are, are they?)

I love Brooklyn and Drew so much. It was clear from the start that these two belonged toget

Another beautifully written story by T.K.
The entire duet centers around two things for me: Second chances, and the power of forgiveness.
I think those reading -who have a tendency to hold grudges- will have a lot to think about, and maybe even second guess some of the choices they've made.
Though not easy to give, forgiveness is powerful.
The beauty of this story was witnessing the effects it can have on not only yourself, but others around you.

5 Bursting Stars! This book consumed me. What an incredible story of friendship, love, promises and that ever lasting bond of a lifetime. This book is everything and more! Filled with angst and how far one will go in the name of love. You do not want to miss this series! I absolutely loved it and will keep these characters with me forever.

T.K. gives us an amazing conclusion to Brooklyn and Andrew's story! Waiting to find out which way Brooklyn went in her car was torture! Was she heading toward Drew, or heading back to Wes?

This time around, not only is Drew trying his hardest to get Brooklyn to believe how he feels about her, he's dealing with someone who has the power to blow his little family apart. Is Drew ever going to get a break? He just wants to raise his little girls, and an incredible job opportunity has lande

WOW! OH WOW!!! Redemption by TK Leigh picks up where Commitment left off. And thank God because I was seriously ready to chuck my Kindle after I finished Commitment. As a rule, I hate cliffhangers, like passionately hate them! However, sometimes they are done right, and I felt like the cliffhanger at the end of Commitment really set stage for Redemption.

Brooklyn Tanner has been in love with Andrew Brinks for as long as she can remember and it is only brought her heartache so she finds herself engaged to another man, Wes, whom she knows will never hurt her.

Andrew Brinks made a decision years ago that forced him to walk away from his only true love and it is a mistake that has cost him dearly yet he knew it was a choice he had to make. Now he is back and desperate for another chance with Brooklyn but she no longer belongs to him and will she ever

You do need to have read Commitment before diving into Redemption. This is a series that you will not regret investing your time in.

After reading the emotionally charged Commitment,  I was unsure if my heart could take this final chapter in the Redemption series.

I really enjoyed reading Commitment but Redemption was even better for me. This conclusion is so emotional and angst filled and it made me cry. I do not cry easily but this book managed it. I really don't want to give too much away becau

I think another title should be second chances, or third or fourth or fifth..... You never forget your first love, your first everything. Brooklyn has loved Drew since she was a little girl but when he broke her heart 17 years ago she couldn't let that go. She never knew it was not his choice to leave her and as the years have gone by he has never told her the truth. Frustrating yes. It would explain everything to her. But he would not see her hurt and learn the only family she has left, her dad ...more

Waiting to find out which direction Brooklyn went is her car left me on the edge. TK love’s her cliffhangers (as do her readers). True to form TK does n

Oh. My. Gosh. This book did me in!!! Hands down one of the best books I read in 2018!!!

Redemption by TK Leigh is the second and final book in the Redemption duet. It cannot be read as a stand-alone so you’ll need to read Commitment first. The anticipation I felt while waiting for this book was CRAZY!!!

After the way the first book ended, I needed to know who Brooklyn chose. While at times I got frustrated with how stubborn she was, I completely understood the reasons why. I swear this bo

First off I have to say I love T.K. Leigh’s books. She’s a go-to author for me and I was so looking forward to this story but some things really bothered me.

I didn’t like Brook in this book so much. She made a turn in the fork on the road and then almost instantly regretted it. Wes was the perfect guy and while I realize maybe not the right guy for her, she didn’t need to lead him on, TWICE. I cried my eyes out for him because even in defeat he had so much grace and dignity that I hated Brooklyn

This is the second book in the Redemption series. TK has a fast pace way of writing her characters and story. Are her characters the way you expect them to be? No! Now, what fun would that be?

Her cast of characters are diverse in personalities and humor. Although, our lead Brooklyn for me got on my nerves for most of the series. She was either whining about her past and a promise. She believes that was broken by a boy she grew up with, like a big brother. Drew is the brother to her best friend

I've anxiously been awaiting the conclusion of Drew and Brooklyn's story and let me tell you, Ms. Leigh has definitely delivered! We were left at quite the crux in Brooklyn's life at the end of Commitment and the beginning of this book had me gasping because I just didn't like the way it was headed. Although I knew it was for a reason.

Just when I thought the book was going to go one way it takes a wild turn and oh my stars I was gasping with these turn o
