For the first time in a very long time, I felt wanted. This felt like home. What home was supposed to feel like.

I love Grahame Claire’s Paths to Love series so much and I honestly thought it couldn’t get any better than Murella and Stone’s book. I was wrong. I loved this just as much (maybe even a tad bit more) than ‘Three Dates’ and that’s really saying something. Carlos and Holly’s story was everything I wanted and more!

OMG OMG Carlos was sooooooo yummy. This was my favorite Paths to love book to date! I fucking loved Carlos so much. I was a little worried that I wouldn't think Holly was good enough for my yummy damaged reformed bad boy, but I really loved her. From the moment Carlos showed up in this series there was something about him that I loved. Something dark, dangerous, tortured, sexy and sweet. I hungered for his story. I longed to get a deep look into this troubled m

Carlos Calderón is an intense enigma of a character that had my attention from the first moment he was introduced. I've been dying to get his story because I just knew it was going to be something amazing. And I wasn't wrong. What did surprise me though, was how deep his emotions ran and I loved that we got to see all of his vulnerabilities come out in this story. It was such a change from the man we first met and it made me love him even harder.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS

I'm loving all the couples in the Paths to Love series, but there was something about Carlos and Holly's story that drew me in. Carlos and Holly may differ in the lives they've led, but both have been hard. Carlos is tortured by his past and Holly is still struggling to be a single parent to her young son. The instant friendship Carlos strikes up with Holly's son, Gabriel is so natural and made me love him more.

This is the fourth book in this series and it can be read as a st

I have been dying for these two characters’ stories since they both appeared on the page and Grahame Claire did not disappoint! Dangerous Redemption is sexy a sexy rollercoaster ride that will make your heart bleed and soar with the emotions Claire rips out of you. A story about second chances and finding your purpose, Dangerous Redemption is one of my favorite books of 2019.

Wonderful Redemption!

Since I started this book, I couldn't put it down. The story was so addicting and every page, every word was so enthralling.
As I said about the previous books (my other reviews), this is a standalone, but I totally recommend the whole series. I'm not even finished yet, but I already miss it.

Since we first met Muriella in It's Not Over and then we learnd her story in Three Dates I was intrigued about Carlos and I wanted to know more about him.
Then we saw them again in Heartbr

Redemption is definitely worth any price

Dangerous Redemption is the fourth book in the Paths to Love series and it's a must-read for anyone who loves a lot of heart, a bit of danger and crazy amounts of hotness.

Carlos Calderon, brother of Muriella, just wants a normal life after a lifetime of crime, danger and death. Then he meets Holly, a single mom trying her best to be both mother and father to her five-year-old son. She's put her son above everything else and thereby closed herself off to l

Words escape me when I try to write a review for books written by these authors -- adjectives like phenomenal, incredible, breathtaking, brilliant -- these words can't even begin to articulate the talent and creativity of these women! I have adored the stories in the Paths to Love series and if possible, they keep getting better and better. The interconnecting characters in these books have become dear friends to me, so much so that I can't get them out of my mind even after reading the last pag ...more

Danger and Redemption


This gripping, fast paced read with so much danger and intrigue, twists and turns abound throughout this highly recommended 5 star ⭐️ read! I just had to read it in one sitting. I just love the Paths of Love series and book 4 blew me away! The adorable 5 year old son Gabriel was such a joy, so loving and protective. He was Holly’s true love of her life!
Carlos only believed in redemption and justice for his fathers murderous evil life, but would he claim his revenge

I loved this book so much! It might be my favorite in the series. Carlos has had a very hard life. He has seen and done horrible things, but he really wants what everyone wants, to be happy. Holly is a single mom to an amazing young boy, Gabriel. She's trying to give him everything he needs to have a fulfilled life. These two meet and the attraction is instant! They have sizzling chemistry and an undeniable connection. Carlos and Gabriel hit it off instantly too. The writing is so amazing in thi ...more

I thought I couldn’t love a Grahame Claire couple more than Mulaney & Easton and then Holly & Carlos were introduced. From the first page to the last, Holly & Carlos captivated me!

Carlos was a little troubled, but seeing him with Holly’s son Gabriel made him swoon worthy. Holly & Carlos imperfectly perfect for each other.

I loved the twists & turns that kept me flipping the pages! I absolutely adored that the previous characters of the series made cameos!

Carlos Calderon just wanted a normal life. Will his past follow him and put his family in danger. Holly is a single mom just going day to day to do what is best for her son.

Chemistry flies off the charts between Carlos and Holly, however, are they willing to take that second chance on life and love and at what cost.

We also see familiar characters along the way. I have loved the series from the beginning and look forward to more.

This series just gets better!! Carlos is such a special person in the series. His devotion and love for his sister has been evident in not only her book but his as well. He feels so much guilt over what he had to do for his father but he has so much love in him as well. We first met Holly and her son Gabriel in Mulaney and Eastons book since Holly is Mulaney’s assistant. Holly’s love for her son is easy to see in all that she does for him. Carlos took to Gabriel as if the boy had always been son ...more

Finding Peace

What a story!!! I absolutely loved Carlos. And Gabriel was just a sweetie. Carlos had so much to overcome but I loved how the author showed you his struggle to find redemption. The writing was superb as I felt every emotion. Living his type of life takes years to overcome. I love that his struggle continued and wasn’t a quick fix. He and Holly make a great family. I’m so glad I found this author. I love this series and highly recommend it.

This has GOT to be hands down my favorite story in this series, I fell in love with Holly's son Gabriel in Heartbreaker and he stole my heart.
I was on the edge of my seat with this one and my heart was beating out of my chest when things twisted and turned throughout the entire book.
Once again loved seeing other characters within the series and I am looking forward to seeing how this series wraps up with Drew's story though I will admit that I am a little weary with that dude.

Dangerous Redemption

An absolutely fabulous read. It was very easy to fall in love with Carlos and shed a tear at his broken pieces and want to put them back together for him. Yep, this story totally sucked me in.
I'm loving these stories and the way Grahame Claire tells them.

This was an okay read. I liked the plot but felt the story fell flat. There was so much additional information that wasn't needed and it ended up overshadowing the actual key points. To be honest I skipped a little because I got bored and wanted to see how it ended. There were so many characters but none memorable enough to remember so I did get a confused on who was who a few times. The story itself is about a single mom to an adorable little boy who falls for Carlos who is trying to find redem ...more

Writing 5 Stars - Grahame Claire’s writing is quite strong. Everything flows well, and the story unfolds nicely. ⠀

Another amazing book by Grahame Claire. The story of Holly and Carlos will take through a roller coaster of emotions. They both think they don’t deserve love. They have both been through a lot. They come from two different worlds.
I love the intensity of how this book had me on the edge. The romance, passion, and suspense of what will happen made it perfect.

Another amazing read and one of the best of 2019. I can’t wait for more from Grahame Claire.
