I Voluntarily Reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book!!

first off let me just say that I'm a huge Callie Anderson fan I'm incredibly drawn to endless Love letter and invisible love letter. That story really connected with the readers and allowed them to be able to feel and see the actual feelings between the characters. However this story fell a little flat for me. I just felt like Katherine's character was missing something and I think it was just that she couldn't really reveal herself an

I was nervous to begin Redemption after the cliffy we were left on after Indiscretion but I didn't need to worry.
I found Kat and cole story was dark and had to get worse before it got better but it was a good solid read. The ending had me feeling all the feels.

This was a good conclusion to the Kathrine and Cole's story. Kathrine relapsed and it broke her even more. Having her past catch up with her was too much to bare. Fortunately, she has people who care about her and willing to do anything to help her; Cole being one of them. His love gives her the strength to fight her demons.
The thing I liked the most was that Katherine was the one to fix herself. She had the desire to do so and took the steps necessary. Cole and her friend weren't overbearing, a

Review by Lisa Kane

Indiscretion left us dangling on a ledge. Kat is spiraling, free falling into oblivion. She's numbing herself with pills and alcohol. Cole can't understand what is going on and why she won't return his calls. Lia and Ben are giving her space, but they suspect what's going on.

Kat spends a lot of time high and lost. It's only when she reaches rock bottom that she's open to change. Cole is her rock, he's determined to be there for her.

Redemption is about confronting your demons

“Love is only a word until someone gives it meaning”

Cole and Katherine give love meaning to each other. This book I could not put down. After the cliffhanger I didn’t see coming in book one, book two was even more than I imagined. The heartache and pain that Katherine has to endure to find the meaning that love can be. Cole is the perfect alpha male to make sure that Katherine is his t

Cole goes all alpha male for his woman! 5 Stars Duet! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic’s Read

Cole and Katherine are a match... one that is made for each other. Cole is alpha protective with Katherine. He gives her everything that she needs... even when he cannot be with her. She is his and He is hers... so why wouldn't he provide for the woman that belongs to him.

Katherine's road is a long one... and the man who owns her heart becomes the very person that she cannot live without. But she needs to be w

I definitely enjoyed this book more than the first one, though rating it was equally as hard. It was a nice read and I can't really complain about anything, but it also didn't wow me. Although there were some sweet and also some heart-rending moments, I didn't connect with the characters and therefore felt like the odd one out.

The story was good; it started where the first book left off and since Kat never fully dealt with what had happened to her, it was just a matter of time when i

Redemption takes you on a roller coaster ride filled with turns, twists, dips and highs at the Callie Anderson "Amusement Park".

I looked so forward to the conclusion of Katherine and Cole's story, however, I knew going in the beginning of this book was going to gnaw me down to the bone, and it did. Katherine finds herself in a very dark place refusing to ask for help, spiraling further down the proverbial rabbit hole as she does not see herself worthy of Redemption.

The journey is raw, ugly and h
I enjoyed the conclusion to Katherine and Cole's love story, but this book felt a little disjointed to me. There were a TON of typos and spelling errors - even the name of Cole's law firm was spelled incorrectly, and Katherine's mother's name was first said to be Vera, then a few pages later it was Wendy. I usually don't mind when I see errors in books, but they were so frequent in this one, it was obvious that it needed to be edited a bit.

Back to the story - I thought the story of Katherine's d

Goodness, I have been waiting for Redemption for what seems like forever. After Indiscretion left me with the worst book hangover and a jaw dropping cliff hanger, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this, and finally at last, it is here!! I was super nervous that Redemption wouldn't measure up to Indiscretion, but it freakin' more than doubled it. This duet is not an easy one to partake in, but it was absolutely brilliant. Redemption is so raw and real, that I felt each word written, down to my v ...more

I thought things were amping up right at the end of Indiscretion, then Callie Anderson gave me Redemption. Holy intensity! This book took my mind and heart on such a ride and I'm still not sure I landed on my feet.

Goodness me- Kat. What a mess. What a fighter. Her battle was hard to read at times. Painful. But I promise, if you power through it, it will be so worth it. Even at her lowest, her love for Cole couldn't be masked by the pain. And after a good bit of back and forth, she didn't want it

Callie definitely made me one happy woman over the weekend as I got to read the conclusion of Cole and Katherine's love story.

I was sad, heartbroken and devastated for what Katherine was going through. She has resorted to her old ways (minus the sex) and can't seem to pull herself out of that funk. Cole has been trying his damn hardest to get Katherine help and is trying to make her see that he loves her and is there to help her. She is pretty much lost and can't seem to find her way back and do

If you haven't read indiscretion then please do as this book directly continues from that.

One pill to return down that slippery slope, two pills to not care, three pills to back to the land of addiction.

Each day she gets more desperate as the claws of her highs grip her mind and soul.

Her pain unbearable her thoughts consuming her. Her highs her freedom.

He feels lost, unsure what went wrong but blind to what's right infront of him.

To understand he needs to see. Only then can he help her.

WOW! I knew that with the way Indiscretion (YES YOU MUST READ IT FIRST) left me hanging that Redemption wasn't going to be an easy read, but seriously?! The diabolical Callie Anderson tore my heart out before she fixed it, and it wasn't quickly either. I'm not going to even get into details because not willing to give a tiny bit away, but suffice to say, I wore my emotions on my sleeve cover to cover. And I could literally feel the pain radiating out of my kindle from Kat's struggle, and it took ...more

There's a beuty behind the dark cloud.
The last book in the duet, Redemption is more about Kat facing her demon.
At the first half of this book I was gutted. My heart break for Kat. I got depress reading that first part for her struggle just so hard. Seeing her finally hit rock bottom.... Gaaah I just wanna hold her and make sure she knows she is loved.
At the end of book one I was wondering will Cole be her saviour. Will Kat be her own saviour. And happy to say, the author give both.

This is the second book, and conclusion to Indiscretion. WOW! What a rollercoaster of emotions this book took me on.

Kat is at her absolute lowest point at the end of Indiscretion, and when this book picks up, she continues to spiral. She makes bad decisions, distances herself from her friends, and the one man she loves, Cole. They all feel so helpless, and know that until Kat is ready to talk, nothing will get her out of the black hole.

This book is filled with so many emotions. You feel Kat's p

4.5 Great Second Book!

After that ending in Indiscretion, I wasn't sure what to expect with Redemption. Sure, I knew how I wanted it to go, however didn't know what kind of torture Callie Anderson was going to put these characters through to be together, or if they ever get back together.

"She was beautiful. A broken soul I planned to fix"

Sounds like a recipe for disaster for Katherine's fragile state of being, but man oh man, Cole wasn't going to let this special girl slip through her hands. He l

This is the second part of this awesome duet, and carries straight on from where Indiscretion ended. Kat is spiralling out of control fast, and Cole is at a loss on what is going on. As with all addicts, Kat reaches rock bottom and finally asks her two best friends for help. Cole is so patient and understanding with her. This is a beautifully written story, which is raw, gritty, brutal, relatable, heartbreaking, and emotional, as well as a hauntingly powerful story. This talented author has done ...more

Where do I start with this review. I love the conclusion. It was emotional, revealing, heart crushing. Watching the fall and knowing that the bottom had to be reached before the recovery could begin. The love these two had for each other was clear even when she was unable to voice it. His tenderness and care for her even when she didn't allow him close shows his heart. Friends and support are vital and she has good ones. A wonderful ending to the duet. I love this author and the way she breaks i ...more

Indiscretion the first book about these two left you hanging on what was going to happen. This one leads you down the path to an amazing end. I loved this one as much as the first one .Katherine goes through so much in this one. But through it all Cole never gives up on her but is it enough to keep them together? Loved the emotions the fighting everything that Katherine goes through. Shows just how freaking strong she really is. This book was so very well written from beginning to end. It told a ...more

Just a week ago I read Indiscretion and I couldn't wait to start this book, Redemption.
This duet of books left me gasping for breath; What starts as a love affair comes crashing down because of a serious case of PTSD due to her experiences at the hand of a stepfather/pedophile.
Please take caution if this is a trigger for you.
However brutal the story is, it is written with love and beauty. I was completely taken in by how the relationship between Cole and Katherine evolved over the course of thes

Redemption by Callie Anderson picks up out on the edge of the cliff that Indescretion left us dangling off! This book is so intense. Kat's journey is such a struggle but she is a fighter. Addiction is a horrible beast. She will break your heart. Oh my goodness, where do I begin to tell you the love I have for Cole. I truly have no words! He will melt your heart and bring you to your knees. The love that Cole and all of Kat's friends have for her is amazing. Callie Anderson writes heartfelt stori ...more

I have to start out by saying Indescretion was my first read of the year and it was incredible. It'll be on my top reads list at the end of the year, for sure. So I was super stoked for the conclusion of the duet. I loved Cole and Kat as a couple, and Redemption just didn't have enough of that for me. Overall it was a good book, but I feel like it was dragged out just a little too much, and then there was a race to wrap everything up in a neat little bow, the

Wow, what can I say, such a heartbreaking yet riveting story. The heat between Cole and Katherine are undeniable, yet love can never be easy. Katherine's travels thru drug addiction are heartbreaking, so many I real life face the hardships daily as this story details. Thank goodness she had friends that were her support system for years. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that wouldn't be triggered to relive their past. ...more

I seriously loved it! It was very different. The 1st 10 or so chapter focus on her addition & finally getting the help she needed... & through all of that Cole (H) stood by her. I just wish that there would of giving another obstacle in the story like Devon (his ex) getting in the way or parents issues. The author didn’t really got too much into the history of his parents. Both books even though it was good it was all her (Katherine) story.

What a conclusion! I’m even more in love with Cole!! I was up and down feeling so much for all the characters. I loved that they all didn’t give up and fought for what they wanted in life. This book takes your emotions and makes you feel like your in the book. You feel it all and at times I was so frustrated but that’s what makes this book great.

Sometimes there’s certain book you come across that tend to leave an impact on you. Well this one definitely did! Both books were amazing but this one had pain and anxiety that seemed so real . My heart literally went out for Katherine and fell in love with Cole for being so understanding. Such a brilliantly written story! I’m just taken back! Phenomenal!!

Nothing can stop a true love. Redemption was an emotional journey for Katherine and Cole. I have felt empathy and sorrow for Katherine situation. Her struggle was difficult to read... stripped down to the lowest point and losing yourself? Redemption was the way to go.. This wasnt an easy read and emotional roller coaster..

This conclusion to the duet was amazing! Wowsers! This book will have you glued from cover to cover and finding out how the story ends. This book had so much fight in it. Fight to pull through the darkness. Fight to get to the better you. This book was amazing and totally an excellent conclusion. I was kinda disappointed that it ended where it did...

Totally a must read Duet!!!
