The scenes of torture, abuse, and sexual abuse are fairly graphic and disturbing (as they should be). They are well-written, not gratuitous, and appropriate to paint the setting for the series, but I wouldn't recommend until 16-17 years old at the earliest. This is adult fiction. (less)

I usually avoid books that are labeled as sci-fi and dystopian, but I found myself drawn to Jake’s Redemption. When I first picked it up, I did not realize it was the prequel to a series where book one is slated to be released in 2020. It is a long book for a prequel, not that I am complaining. I have never encountered prequels that were 425 pages long.

Jake’s Redemption introduced me to a world where women were ruthless slave owners and men were at their mercy. However, as we find in situations

JAKE’S REDEMPTION: THE ANGEL EYES SERIES PREQUEL by Jamie Schulz Is a full length prequel to a new dystopian, western, sci-fi romance mash-up series. This story pulled me in right from the first chapter. The author brings you into a new world order in which females are in charge and the institution of slavery has reappeared. All of the characters in this book have survived the war, but some are much more damaged than others.

4/5 stars!:)

I was really excited to pick up this book, because it is unlike anything I have ever heard of before. I have not read a true dystopian novel since The Hunger Games and Divergent days, and to be honest I wasn't really expecting to read anything else in that genre after the fact. My reading tastes have changed since then and I am more of a romance reader than a YA reader nowadays. So when I started reading this novel and realized that is was dystopian, I was actually really excited sin

Jake’s Redemption is the prequel to Jamie Schulz’s The Angel Eyes series, and it’s a read that has me desperate to see what the series brings. Although my feelings were a bit mixed towards this one in the end, as a whole it was highly addictive and I’m certainly interested in reading more about this world.

With Jake’s Redemption we’re introduced to an interesting dystopian world, one that left me super curious. I’ll be honest and say I didn’t completely understand it – there were some elements th

This is a totally different read for me but one I'm glad I read. The author does a fantastic job bringing a great cast of characters and weaving an intriguing story line. She brings an array of emotions from cruelty, pain and despair along with torture and slavery to hope and romance and describes it all in detail with vividly painted scenes. She captured and held me from start to finish and had me turning the pages as fast as I could trying to keep up with all the twists and turns along the way ...more

I enjoyed reading this book 📚, it is a roll reversal where men are the sex objects and slaves instead of women. Tells how Monica meets Jake a slave and they fall in love and try and find a way to be together. I can't wait for the next book.

Warning: Intended for mature audiences. This story contains some unsettling and violent subject matter that sensitive readers may find disturbing or triggering. Reader discretion is advised.

Jake’s Redemption is the story of Jake Nichols becoming a slave after the war that put women in charge of the world. He was broken, beaten and damaged, but a kind spirit woman took him in and tried to build him back up into the man he once was. Monica Avery was an amazing woman with a past of her own but the

Jamie Schulz is a new to me author and this book isn’t my normal genre, BUT I was intrigued about the story after reading the blurb and the story itself did not disappoint. This is a post-apocalyptic, western, romance mix and it works well.

Schulz created a world in which woman rule, they are powerful, and they are slave owners. There was a war and this is a story about those who survived physically, but mentally may still be damaged.

Oh My! For a prequel, I didn't expect it to be so in depth and long! I actually expected it to be done in a couple hours, like a lot of other prequels. But WOW! It sucked me in and I was ready to read the next one! But have to wait. But I'm sure it'll be worth it! There are triggers: NonCon memories, abuse effects, abuser confrontation, NonCon stalking. But the care Jake receives slowly brings him back from the brink. It's uplifting and lets the reader know that if you surround yourself with the ...more

Schulz's debut offering straddles genres. It is a dystopian cowboy romance, and it examines some well-worn territory of the slave trade, gender equality, and at times, I made parallels with modern sex-trafficking. This book is a full-length novel, but it is a prequel to the series Schulz has created, in which a gender war has erupted. Women rose out of the war as the victors and relegated men to positions of slavery and servitude. More … ...more

Before I start this review, I want to let everyone about some significant triggers in Jake’s Redemption. I usually don’t include trigger warnings, but I felt this book warranted one. The trigger warnings I want to add are rape, the threat of rape, mental abuse, and physical abuse. If any of these triggers you, I would suggest finding another book.

In this universe, there was a war of men vs. women many years prior. The women won and can enslave the men, and most women show the men no mercy. Marriage is outlawed, and women are meant to just make use of the many male slaves that are around. Jake has been tortured for years under Darla and doesn’t think that he will ever be able to be happy again. When a woman named Monica offers him a job on her ranch, he is worried that he might be going to a fate worse than Darla. When Monica treats him l ...more

I have mixed feelings about Jake’s Redemption by Jamie Schulz. I’ll be honest, when I first picked up the book, for the first chapter or two, I hated it. I found it hard to accept the world that was built for this series – because I simply can’t make myself believe that given the advantage of strength, womankind would overtake men and start treating them like slaves. The way the men in this story were treated was depraved, and I’d like to think that having been oppressed and mistreated for thous ...more

This was my first time reading a Jamie Schulz novel and OMG it was so good! Jake's Redemption was a forbidden love romance that had so much depth to it.

After reading the blurb, I knew this was going to be a story about two people who would most likely fall in love. It was so much more. The story was complex with characters that were placed in complicated and unimaginable situations.

We meet Jake Nichols, an enslaved cowboy, who would do anything to escape his "master" Darla. Jamie Schulz was abl

I was sent this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

Jake's Redemption is the prequel to Jamie Schulz's The Angel Eyes series and it has hooked me and made me want to continue on with the series as soon as possible.

This is definitely an introduction to this world and some things were left open and I was left with some unanswered questions that I am assuming will be elaborated on and answered in future books. Because I am impatient I wanted to know everything now but even though

Jake's Redemption by Jamie Schulz is an interesting new twist on romance novels featuring cowboys. I loved the whole book. The atmosphere was intense. Men are now imprisoned like slaves. Sold and loaned as their owners please. Jake has been dreaming and hoping for his freedom. Back to days when men were not slaves. But now, those hopes are just dreams. Soon, he is taken to build a ranch for a woman, Monica. Monica isn't like all the other women. Jake instantly takes a fancy to Monica and forgets ...more

Jake is a slave who is about to meet his match.

Monica is a strong willed woman who is in charged. She is about to change his world in more ways than he will ever imagine and vice versa. Neither was expecting to find love amidst their setting only a haven from the cruelty of society.

But their new love will have to go through challenges along the way for them to gain happiness.

I got this book as a KU. I saw it whilst browsing and it intrigued me especially with it being the authors first book, I had to read it because I've got a thing for up and coming authors. I'm amazed that is her first book, she goes into so much detail and is so thorough. The back story is first as the main character re lives it. Even though it happened a few years ago Jake can't stop obsessing over it. The book is set in the future after the wars, women

Jake and his friend Bret have been evading Raiders since the war was lost. But his lovesick friend got them caught. In a last-ditch effort to get free, Jake is able to cause just enough of a distraction to help his friend make a run for it. Unfortunately, Jake doesn't fare so well, becoming a slave to one of the most sadistic women. This is the story of a women-run world; where the men are little more than property, slaves.

This story was intriguing and very sad. My heart broke over and over for

The tension of Jake's looming departure was present in everything, and added a layer of suspense and emotion that impacted the depth of each scene. The chemistry between characters was a highlight of the writing. The build and attraction between Jake and Monica is gripping and raw, and teases and twists in all the right places.

On pins and needles from beginning to end!

My heart broke from the first for Jake and immediately became invested in him. This story of his redemption and healing is both heart breaking and hopeful. Jake’s path in this book is fraught with distress, emotional scars, anger and rage, torture and gut wrenching, paralyzing fear. Yet amidst all that negativity, there’s also hope, laughter, a sense of family and belonging, light hearted moments, and even happiness. That happiness is due mostly to Monic

Upon first reading the description, I didn’t know whether this book would be a hit. The dystopian scene where the battle of the sexes have reversed and women were now the dominant gender was hard to believe.

Jamie did an EXCELLENT job setting the scene and not only explaining this new life, but she did so in a way that you could actually imagine this type of life. You could see the scenes and feel the struggle that the characters endured.

Many times during the book I took a step back and realize

This story mashup of dystopia, sci-fi and western is a first for me and I was skeptical of how the author will be able to pull it off. And, to my surprise this story came well together. 

In this female-dominated western society, slavery has returned and Jake has found himself on the wrong side of the fence serving a cruel Mistress that treats him like the dirt beneath the sole of feet. When he is temporarily lent to another slave owner, there he finds the complete opposite of the slave life he ha
