Breaking off my marriage of convenience to start a smoldering affair turns my world upside down. Trevor was supposed to be worth it. He nearly made me spontaneously combust in bed while showing me a love I never thought possible outside of it.

Except it was all a lie. Happily ever after with a man who betrayed me? Not a chance.

I’m not sure where to start, as this is a debut book I wasn’t sure what to expect but this was a fantastic story from start to finish I was captivated by the story telling and the backstory.

Brooklyn is living a life that she has never wanted, her dreams of dancing ballet cast aside so that she can make her father happy on her way to being married to man she doesn’t love and being a part of a society that glosses over the cracks. She is feeling trapped and confused the night that she meets Trev

I was a beta reader for Olivia Peters and I have read all iterations of Sweet Redemption, including the final version that goes live on July 3.

I really enjoyed Olivia's debut novel and I will definitely be on the lookout for her next book. The ending has a plot twist that I didn't see coming and the sex scenes are STEAMY.

I highly recommend it.

At first congratulations Olivia to your first hot as hell book 🔥👏🔥👏🔥👏.
I loved every second of it 😍.
The story has a very interesting plot, is exciting and very emotional.
Sweet Redemption shows
an absurd world of rich businessmen and their women, who are at the mercy of the men surrounding them.
A story that begins as an act of revenge and develops into a wonderful love story with a lot of drama and heartbreaking emotions (By now you already know that I love drama, right? 🤗 )

Loved it! Hot and steamy...but sweet. I fell in love with the characters, their backstories made them believable. Also thee chemistry between Brooklyn and Trevor was dynamite. Plus I’m a sucker for a bad boy who has a heart. Looking forward to the next release from Olivia Peters.

Sweet Redemption by Olivia Peters
Twist of Fate #1

Debut author Olivia Peters had created a book that has a poor child made rich who then finds herself living the life her father envisioned for the family. Her father came from a poor background, did well and then...lost sight of what was truly important. When called on his methods by Trevor he pushed him away, threatened him and set his daughter, Olivia, up for a difficult situation. Okay...sitting here thinking about it...why would a parent put h

Sweet Redemption by Olivia Peters
4/5 🦄

The Short Version:
Overall, an insanely readable novel, perfect for when you just want a reliable contemporary romance to sink your teeth into like a ripe peach 🍑 . Not too long or too short, with just the right amount of drama (aka, a whole lot) and mystery (tall, dark strangers are trope for a reason) combined with some fiery passion and instalust (is it hot in here? 🔥). Check it out!

Warning: If you have a problem with cheating, this book may not be for you.

Brooklyn is a young woman that wanted to attend to Julliard and dance as a way of life. Her father was not in agreement and she ended up being his right hand at the successful company he built. She's dating Jake for years but as far as marrying him, she's not sure if he's the one.

Trevor knows who Brooklyn is and he approaches her because he wants revenge on her father. What he was not expecting was to find that she wasn't

SWEET REDEMPTION (Twist of Fate 1)
By Olivia Peters

Olivia Peters delivers such a strong debut novel. I was hooked from the beginning to the very end. There is cheating in this book which is normally a hard limit for me but it was done in a way where you don’t know to find it as cheating. It is almost a Friends type of situation where “we were on a break” type of argument.

Brooklyn and Trevor couldn’t be more opposite but their chemistry and connection were off the charts. There was plenty of stea

Olivia Peters is a new to me author and this is her debut novel.

Fair warning, if you are not a fan of cheating in books then this one may not be for you.

Trevor is man out for revenge and Brooklyn is all part of his game to destroy her father. He wants her father to pay for his father’s death, for the pain he caused his entire family.

Brooklyn’s life revolved around dance, she was bound for Julliard. However, her father had other plans and wanted her to join the family business. To the outside

Sometimes real love comes from the most unexpected place and the fact that it could come from hate it's always a good thing in my opinion as they already know what it's the worst thing that can happen.
Blinded by his hate for her father, Trevor doesn't realise that he's actually falling in love with Brooklyn.
Brooklyn has the life of every socialite person but she hates it, even if she does what is expected from her, she prefers to dance and dreams of one day accomplishing her dream. Her longtime

A fast paced, sexy, passionate debut novel.

I loved Trevor’s character.
I even liked Jake to a degree, even though he made a couple of bad decisions.
I couldn’t fully connect with Brooklyn but I understood the pressure on her to try and do what she thought was right by her parents. When she was with Trevor she became a completely different person and it was great to see Trevor bring out another side of her.
I really hope that we’re getting a second book soon and that Maddie & Griff get their HEA

Brooklyn and Trevor couldn't be more different. A girl that lives a life of riches and can get whatever she wishes for and a boy that grew nearly all the time hungry and fearing for his safety.

Brooklyn is about to marry her long-time sweetheart, all her future is planned and tailored to represent the life she is living in, but her dreamer's soul is bleeding with a longing for something more, something different. No wonder that when she meets Trevor the chemistry between them grows fast and the s

Brooklyn has been with Jake for years but she’s starting to realise there’s more to living than what she’s doing. With a rich, overbearing father, a clueless, work obsessed partner and a career that she never really wanted, Brooklyn’s eyes are been opened to what her life is shaping up to be like and she’s not sure it’s what she wants.

Trevor has wanted to get his revenge on Brooklyn’s father for years and he knows the easiest way to do that is through his precious daughter Brooklyn. What starts

Olivia Peters' debut novel did not disappoint. I have to admit, flaws and all, Trevor was my hero! There’s nothing like a bad boy (by circumstance) that gets my heart racing. 🔥

Brooklyn is a sweet girl with a domineering father trying to run her life, to include who she marries.

Jake is her longtime boyfriend. He is more worried about impressing her father to further his career than making her a priority though.

In comes bad boy Trevor to shake things up with his own agenda, at least in the beginni

This is a NEW to me author & books! Very first by this lovely soul of a person, gah I have been waiting for this and finally! This is a enemy-to-lovers very intense romance!

Brooklyn is Trevor's game, she doesn't know it but she will. Trevor is out for revenge and blood, and who ends up in the middle..little Brooklyn. Little did she know, but what does she need to worry about...she has a loving fiancee who spoils her, a father who she now works and hopes to take

Sweet Redemption by Olivia Peters is a seductive and riveting read! I love a good forbidden romance, and debut author, Olivia Peters, was certainly up to the task! Expect scorching hot chemistry, secrets, betrayal, and a connection sure to burn up your kindle! Combined with repaired family-bonds, redemption, and a journey to follow one's dreams, Sweet Redemption is a well rounded read!

If elements of infidelity or instalove are not your thing then Sweet Redemption isn't the read for you.

For starters, HOLY &*%$, I loved this book! Everything from the writing style to the characters to the plot (and let’s not forget the scorching hot sex scenes!!)—love love loved it all. There were times when I wanted to throw my kindle and/or reach through it and smack both Brooklyn and Trevor, but that’s also what made it great. They were both very well-developed characters, and their chemistry was seriously explosive! I also loved that both characters had their own struggles and their own flaw ...more

The first book in the Twist of Fate Series is a raw and emotional story that is well written. Brooklyn and Trevor's story kept me turning pages. There is one thing though,I am hoping the next book continues their story as this book left you kind of hanging. I will just have to wait and see what happens in the next book.

Sweet Redemption is the debut novel from Olivia Peters and I absolutely loved it! Such an amazing start to her writing career.

Brooklyn and Trevor are complete opposites. But you know what they say, opposites attract. That statement has never been more true than with these two. Brooklyn is a naive, almost sheltered girl. She strongly believes the things that she was taught to believer her entire life. Trevor the didn’t grow up with money, and has way more life experience.

All five stars are for Trevor (yum)

Trevor is exactly the stuff a book boyfriend should be made of. Strong, sexy, and complicated, this man can use me to screw my dad over any day. Seriously, though, this book had a great story, great push and pull on the romance aspect, and plenty of well-developed characters. Unfortunately I wasn’t Brooklyn’s biggest fan, as she couldn’t seem to make decisions for her own happiness to save her life (almost literally), and though Trevor thought of her as making

This is a debut novel for Ms. Peters and she was so kind to send me a copy of Brooklyn and Trevor's story. There is cheating, so if you have trouble with that in fiction, this definitely won't be a read for you.

Brooklyn is in a long relationship, pretty much approved by their families. Her dad is powerful in his industry. She is supposed to eventually take over her fathers company at some point in her life. Though, she is a dancer, but her father sees it as a hobby and not a career. So, she is p

A sexy, steamy novel with a great storyline.

Brooklyn a young socialite with new money is struggling with her place in this new society. She has the perfect apartment, job, and boyfriend, but does she really want these things in her life. At the beginning of the story I thought it was going to be a story of “poor little rich girl”, but as it progressed I began to understand her hesitation of wanting to be part of this world.

The chemistry between Trevor and Brooklyn sizzled and the sex scenes were explosive. There's an underlying theme of betrayal, but since we get insight into both perspectives, Trevor becomes a sympathetic character when pieces of his backstory are revealed.

We know that he's planning to do something to Brooklyn, but it's not revealed what that something is until later in the book. I was sure that I knew what was coming - and I did - but there was a twist I wasn't expecting that added context to e

Emotional. Angst. Exciting and steamy as hell! Hate-to-love. Who doesn't love enemies to lovers books. Rich vs. The working class. Two worlds collide and I swear you won't regret reading this novel!

I wanted to read and review this book after reading the blurb. The line, “… healed everything that was broken inside me” made me think that Trevor would be a little bit broody. When I see “broken” in a book’s blurb I always want to find out why the character is described/labeled that way. I couldn’t wait to dive into the story.

I wanted to love this book. However, I had to re-read a few parts before I fully understood what was happening. Granted, that may just have been my issue. I had slight dif

Wow. For some reason, I was not expecting to like this story. But I did. Enjoyed it in fact that I've recommended to a few others. What did I like? The setup/ the plot has been done before. An old rivalry between parents that has spilled over into the next generation. A child, Trevor, seeking revenge on the person, Arch, who wronged his family. I liked the character setup and development, as well as the quick pace in which the story moved along. I liked the amount of angst that was always ever p ...more
