I have it all, or so it seems. A thriving medical practice, money in the bank and a standing invitation to every social event in Virginia. It doesn’t matter that my marriage is a trainwreck and my friend circle is limited to my business partner and my brother. You don’t need things like love and friends when you’re at the top of your field. That’s what I thoug

Don’t come at me for not finishing this masterpiece. I’m not really interested reading about a man that can’t keep his dick in his pants while married to his gold diggers (his words, not mine) when it’s certain that he won’t be faithful to the female character..

Quotes from the zero.

When I moved to Virginia after my first marriage blew up in epic fashion, I had nothing. I didn’t have a job, a place to stay, or even a penny to my name, thanks to my ex-wife taking me for every dime that

I have a lot of words about this one, but I'll keep it simple. One - you will never know this is Chelle's debut novel. It's an incredible story that keeps you hooked and laughing from page ONE. The writing is solid and the story line is so well done, you'll get sucked in and won't be able to put it down. Two - The characters. GAH! Chelle has an amazing way of writing characters you love and then one you will love to hate (I may have almost thrown my kindle). Three - There are parts in which I la ...more

Garrett was a jerk in the beginning of this book and I really didn't think he would be able to redeem himself to win Paige's heart but he did. It was a bit of an instant changeover but then again it was extenuating circumstances.

This was cute with an added bonus of a mini mystery with little angst between Garrett and Paige.

First of all I can’t believe this is this author’s first book. What a fantastic story and amazing job she did! I am a huge fan of second chance romance and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this one! It is filled with so many amazing characters; some we know from Corinne’s books like Mark, Charlie and Ben and some like Paige and Garrett, our heroine and hero, who we either meet for the first time like Paige or Garrett who we finally have the opportunity to get to know and fall in love with.

I suggest reading the Salvation Series by Corinne Michaels before reading books in the Society, but it is not a requirement.

Key Points for this story in the Salvation Society Collection:
- Romantic Suspense
- MC Characters are over 30 years old
- Finding the meaning to life and love
- Salvation Series connection is Mark and Charlie from Defenseless

For a debut novel, I’d say Chelle knocked it out of the park-GlandSlam style!! I was hooked from the very beginning and loved every chapter as the story flowed beautifully from start to finish.

Can I stop mid-review to just declare that I have a fictional-fan-girl-crush on Charlie!?!? She is straight up bad-ass, always has been and Chelle did a fantastic job with the cross-over!

As for Garrett and Paige, the heart and soul of Reformation, Garrett Dixon is the brother of Mark Dixon in Corinne Mic

Wow! What a fantastic debut novel by this new writer!! Set in the amazing world created by Corinne Michaels, Ms. Sloan weaves this story in perfectly!

This is the story of Garrett and Paige and what a whirlwind of a relationship they have!

Paige is living a new life, she is doing what makes her happy and makes her fulfill her need to make up for her past mistakes.

Garrett has lived a life of wealth, excess, and living a lie of a marriage.  He thinks he has everything he wants until he meets Paige.

I just realized that this was this authors debut, and OH MY GOSH, what a debut it was!! If was funny, sweet, sexy, adorable, pure.. just all around amazing!!

We are introduced to Garrett (Marks brother from the original Salvation series) who is on his second loveless marriage and is quickly coming to a midlife crisis. After a medical scare, he quickly realizes what is truly important in his life, and just how he wants to spend it. He knew as soon as he met Paige that she was different than all t

4.5⭐️ to kick off the Salvation Society!!

I have been looking forward to the books in the Salvation Society world to release, and Reformation started it off with a bang.

Chelle Sloan is a new to me author, but I can say I will be picking up more of her work! She did a great job with Paige and Garrett’s story. I love how she brought in Mark (Garrett is our favorite Twilight SEAL’s brother) and even Ben too! How did I get lucky and the first book I read had my 2 favorite SEALs in it?

I have to be honest, I have not actually checked out the original books by Corinne Michaels--- shh don't tell anyone! Let's just say that it will 100% be rectified because after reading all of these correlated books that is all I want to do now!

Omg. This book. THIS. BOOK.

Ever read a book where in the end you can’t help the stupid smile that’s on your face? Welp, Reformation did that to me.

I can’t express how much I absolutely loved this book. In Reformation you’ll see that Garrett and Paige’s story is the best kind of testimony of how a person can really change, and do it for the better. This story was written so thoughtfully, planned out and perfectly plotted. It was so engaging and charming; from Garrett’s silly pick up lines, to Pai

Truly adored and loved Paige and Garrett! Yes, at the beginning this book I had my doubts about continuing but I am so glad I did:) Yes, you hear about his true manwhore days right from his own inner thoughts and yes, that was a tough pill to swallow BUT he definitely redeemed himself for sure! I think if we hadn't gotten to truly know and understand him, we may not have appreciated his "reformation"... Now, yes, I am a believer once a cheat, always a cheat and I am hoping and praying

I am blown away that this is a debut, as this is certainly an author to look out for in the future. This is Garrett and Paige’s story. Garrett has a successful medical practice, and is on his 2nd loveless marriage, and after a scare he finds himself putting his life in perspective, in what is important in his life. Paige has had a tough life and is following her dream as a kindergarten teacher and she volunteers whenever she can. The chemistry between these two is off the charts. This is a well ...more

A great read from a debut author! Reformation is a great addition to the Salvation Society series.

The story and characters drew me in from the very beginning. I really liked Paige and Garrett together and how she helped him see he wanted more from life. They were so sweet as they eventually fell for each other. I also enjoyed the appearances from characters we already know from Corinne's books.

After finishing this book, I am looking forward to more from this author!

This is a brilliant debut novel. I literally inhaled this in one evening.

Garrett has a successful medical practice. He hasn’t much luck with women as he’s in his second marriage and not happy in it. I’ve got to say I didn’t like him straightaway but he grew on me lol Paige is a kindergarten teacher. She hasn’t had it easy but she loves her job. I really liked her.

This was a well written story. I’m certainly looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Like no one he's ever met

To say when Corinne Michaels announced other authors would be continuing the Salvation journey I was so excited and terribly scared. Because the characters she created are so beloved.

Reformation was just the perfect way to carry on this family. I'll be honest, I didn't like Garrett Dixon in the beginning, he kinda grated on my nerves. Paige (who shares a "real name" with me btw) was the Disney princess kindergarten whisperer. Can I just say I LOVE Charlie and Cullen i

Oh my hell...this book is so freaking good! Debut?! You wouldn’t know it! It is very well written and the characters?!...the characters were so AMAZING! Garrett with his cheesy pick up lines had me actually laughing out loud (yes, my husband thought I was weird) and I really love the fact that he’s been married twice before, uncommon with the romance books I’ve read, showing he’s not perfect! I think Charlie and I are kindred spirits lol! She has a sailors mouth and is battling a naughty child.. ...more

“You make me want to be a better man. Every day I strive to be the man who makes you proud, who makes you feel loved, who makes you happy. Because God knows you do all of those for me every day.”

This is how you do a debut romance book! Full of of the perfect amount witty banter, cheesy pick up lines, and all out love for each other, this book was a journey about learning to love yourself first so your heart is ready for that forever kind of love. Paige and Garrett each have a mountain of baggage

Let me just say right quick, Chelle Sloan ROCKS!! Paige and Garrett are amazeballs but let’s face it, Cullen made this book. That little boy is a charming devil that’s for sure.

Anywho, Paige is settled into her life in Virginia and wants nothing to do with a relationship. Period. When she is not teaching little ones she is volunteering all her time. I see myself in her as I cannot stay still myself. The last thing she expe

I was captivated by this story right from the start with it's rich characters, compelling storyline, fun banter, and lots of sizzling passion!

Chelle, girl, you knocked it out of the park with this one! Your attention to detail (both plot and character wise) make this book read like it was your 10th, not debut novel. I loved all the surprises and unexpected twists throughout the chapters, leaving you guessing til the very end as to what was going to happen lend to the reformation of both Garrett and Paige.
I have to admit, Garrett was a tough pill to swallow at first- he was calloused beyond what I thought could be saved in a man. He w
