For years, I was close enough to fame to touch it. Taste it. Drink it.

Until one night I made a mistake which couldn’t be undone.

"She saw me at my lowest and still wanted the man underneath."

I've been beside myself excited to read this story after meeting him in Reputation. Truthfully, I kinda didn't like him...then. He really pissed me off with the way he treated his sister whom I adore. Then, after reading the synopsis, I decided to give him a chance at Redemption. As I'm sure you already guessed, he won me over. I've gone over to the dark side, trusting that Taylor will work her magic on him, and bring him into her

I didn't expect to be gifted with a book about Ash. Once I'd seen his monster temper in Reputation and how he came around, seeking forgiveness, I thought that was that. However, now I know that there was so much more to this man. While he was busy making everyone's dreams come true, his sister and his best friend, his own hopes for himself got lost. So lost that he tried to fill the hole left behind with booze. So much booze that he became a functional alcoholic, equipped with a short temper and ...more

Redemption is the redeeming arc of Ashton Tyler. It’s sad and angsty and so beautiful. When you read it, it’ll weasel a piece of itself into your heart and that piece right there is the piece of Rebecca Sharp’s heart that she poured into this book. It’s not at all what I expected, it’s so much more. You’ll feel everything with Redemption and when it’s over you’ll wish you had never read it so that you can experience it all over again for the first time

I love when a book takes a complicated character, and as the title of this one suggests, redeems him and makes you fall completely in love with him. Life is not always black and white, and good people can do bad things.. things they never expected they would do. I think there is something so beautiful in taking a flawed character and making him into a person you root for, a person you want to end up happier than they ever thought was possible.

If you have read Reputation, you know that Ash is

I was a lucky to win an arc copy!
A new to me author, let me say I am honored and thrilled to read this as I want more!!

Ash & Taylor's story is filled with hope that in the end love wins!

Alcohol, family, friends, love, suicide, saddness, feeling that you're not worth it..

Redemption's characters felt real.

This was my first book by Rebecca Sharp and she has left me speechless! This is by far one of the easiest 5 stars I’ve given a book. It didn’t matter that I wasn’t even halfway into the book when I knew this story would exceed those five stars it without question deserved.

As soon as I started reading I was immediately entranced. I knew right then not even a paragraph in that I wanted nothing more then for this book to never end. I was completely and utterly captivated by this story and this

Alright, is everyone ready to enter the magical and healing world of Carmel Cove? Ash and Taylor take us on an emotional journey. It is filled with self-discovery, learning to accept your missteps, and working on forgiveness. The message of this story is one of hope and as the title says, REDEMPTION.

"She is mine." But it was more than that. "She is my redemption."


OH MY...I wholeheartedly loved this book! My first introduction to Ash was in Reputation and he was in my opinion a big d!ck. Ash in this book is a man changing himself for the better and now I freaking love him! Taylor is just as amazing in this book as she was in Reputation. You see that they both are struggling with their fears and their worthiness to others or even to themselves. I enjoyed the references to religion

This book is set in the same “universe” as reputation, but it can be read as total standalone. In fact I would say this book is more like the prequel to a new series (as confirmed by the author) than a sequel to reputation. For me redemption was the better book. I don’t know why exactly, it was just better. I never thought that I could sympathize with Ashton, but I did. His book showed me more about him than I would have ever expected and I wept

Dr. Rebecca Sharp has become a fast favorite of mine... and this book is a prime example of why. I love a book with a character that is a complete asshat, but throughout the book, they redeem themselves and the author did this with Ash, who is Blake's brother (from Reputation). He was not a character I liked very much. But once I started reading this and saw that the author was going that direction, I was a little taken back, I didn't think she could do anything that would make me fall in love ...more

This was such a painful read. Not because it wasn’t fabulous, because it definitely was. The very rawness of emotion and the oh-so-real struggles of Ash, Taylor, Larry, and so many others we’ll see more from in future books just tore at my heart. Ash needs to make a big change and find a way toward forgiveness from others, for others, and for/from himself. Taylor has always been there for Ash, even at his almost-rock-bottom. But what happens when the impossible dream is really a memory that Ash ...more

Five emotional stars for Taylor and Ash !!!



This is the first book I've read by Dr. Rebecca Sharp and only I can say is that I really loved it!

Her writing style is beautiful that her words touch your soul.

"Redemption" is a sad, heartbreaking but also a beautiful contemporary romance with sister's best friend trope.

Taylor and Ash's relationship isn't easy from the beginning but like every other true love, they need to fight for it.

If you're looking for an emotional romance story, then this is a

I am speechless...I can honestly say I am lost for the right words to tell you how much I LOVED and cherish this book by Rebecca Sharp. So this will probably be a short review,because of the simple fact that I love this story too much for simple words.
Words seem meaningless when to me it is perfect.
I am not going to tell you anything about the story because if you decide to read it( which I think you should) then you will experience the full effect of this incredible journey between Ash and

Addiction of any kind is hard to overcome but for Ash seeing the way he was hurting his sister and his best friend he knew he needed to get away and get himself straight so he left his family and friends and did just that. This story is not only about facing your mistakes and making things right it is about going after the things you have always wanted as well, and for Ash that was Taylor.

Taylor showed up on Ash's doorstep needing help and that is just what he did without any questions, Ash

I absolutely loved this story written by Dr. Rebecca Sharp and could not get enough of this story. The moment I started reading this story i could not put it down and can not write how much I loved this book. The story really examined some really sensitive topics but it was done really well and showed how much emotion the author put into this story.

Taylor was a good girl that did everything she could for the people around her. I found her to be really sweet and really caring about those around

Redemption is one of my top reads this year. I fell in love with Rebecca Sharp’s writing after reading Reputation and I preordered Redemption as soon as it became available. What an incredible journey of love, forgiveness, hope, and just as the title states—redemption. The writing was poetically beautiful and I couldn’t put it down. Rebecca Sharp has found a forever fan in me and she blew me away with Ash and Taylor’s story. Beautiful!!

I always look forward to reading RS and she has done it again with another awesome five star read. I could have totally devoured this book in one go but after starting the book I ended up with two sick kids both vomiting and I had to put it down.

If you have read Reputation, you know that Ash is Blake's brother and he is hiding a huge secret. He's a high level functioning alcoholic and it is taking over his life. This was the reason why he gave Zach the ultimatum to break his sister's heart, and

Sometimes there comes a time when the human being bottoms out and has two options. One is to stay deep in the dark, the other is to push you the moment you touch it to surface and survive.

Ash reached that point. His life, the environment he surrounded himself and his decisions helped him to immerse himself in alcohol. Losing control due to excesses. Until he decides to turn his life completely, to overcome his alcoholism, pursue his dreams and achieve the stability he needs. What he doesn't know

If you've read Reputation you'll have met Ash before. Like me you probably wouldn't have liked him very much. He came across as a manipulator and a but of a bully. So to say I was intrigued by the prospect of his story was an understatement.

Ash's story doesn't creep up on you it smacks you in the face. I never saw before just how broken my beautiful Ash was. The struggles were hard to read but they made the victories all the sweeter. Taylor is the best friend you want on your side. With a

Wow! Emotions are running high and seriously 5 tear filled stars! This book was everything and more! Ash’s story can’t be missed! The love and devotion in this man is amazing!

One night, one time, one second can change it all! Everything in the blink of an eye gone! But even when all hope is lost and plans change it could mean the beginning of something beautiful!

Now I loved Reputation but Redemption just blew me away! Ash is such an amazing person! He had so much love for all those around him

The only thing worse than an addiction was an addiction to something you couldn’t have.”

I’m going to hold my hands up and admit that I hadn’t read REPUTATION, so I went into this one completely blind. That didn’t matter though. I jumped straight into REDEMPTION and felt like I had known these characters forever. Ash and Taylor’s story was so beautifully written and I quickly fell in love with Rebecca Sharps words, and I will now be adding her previous books to my ever growing list!

This is my second book by this author and I must say, I have enjoyed both of these books.
I was beyond excited to read Ashton Tyler’s story. I was waiting for Ashton’s story because lord he was an ass in the first book and boy was this book worth it.
Redemption is suspenseful, angsty, emotional and sexy AF.Taylor…gosh she is such a compassionate person and I loved her strength.Dr. Rebecca Sharp has written two beautiful characters. This book had me hooked

When I read the line “She’s my redemption,” I completely lost it. Talk about a story that puts you through the ringer with a full force of emotions. Ash’s story holds so many truths with so many individuals being able to relate to in one way or another. Taylor reappears on his doorstep and his world is about to be rocked some more. The author has again taken you on a journey with a beautiful story that you will not be able to forget. This is definitely for you if you are looking for Love, hope ...more

I don't know how many times I've tried to write this review now, I've lost count. Every time I try, my eyes tear up and I feel like screaming how unfair life can be.

Ash and Taylor's story is full of feels. From longing to love, remorse to redemption, new life to the end of it (no words seem adequate) their battle for their happy was exquisite. Smoking hot, desperate and deserving.

You see, this book.... (even now, 2 days later, I'm struggling to find adequate words) it was heartbreaking.

Believe me, I know how incredibly lucky I am that Rebecca allows me to beta read her work.

Redemption is so raw. So real. So good.
Ash struggles with demons no one in his inner circle can fathom. And Taylor... well, Taylor fights her inner circle. Two stubborn souls, bound and determined to make their own decisions in their own way in their own time. And a twist of fate that forces their hands.

As usual, Sharp brings the angst. Angst of epic, yet somehow still relatable, proportions. The

Since this is my first book by the lovely, gorgeous Dr.Rebecca sharp, I have to mention I missed out on the back story of Ash and his fiery meltdown in Retribution, so I'm assumed and guessed a part of it. His conscience is now brimful with guilt, eating him alive having hurt the ones he loved the most.

So he escapes...far far away to spend some alone time, rediscovering & renewing
