Rate this book
A murderer is released from prison and disappears.
Soon, his body is discovered on Alex Stone’s estate. The cause of death—murder.
But if she fails, and Alex is convicted of murder—the punishment is death.

Kylie Tate and Alex finally have the life they have been dreaming of. Happily married, they are enjoying their honeymoon in the Colorado Rockies. But when Kylie is kidnapped, their lives are thrown into turmoil once again. Once rescued, the kidnapper disappears, but not without leaving behind clues to his identity. The man who escaped from prison…Alex’s father, James Wells.

When James Wells’ body is found in the boathouse on the Stone estate, all the evidence points to one man—Alex. Now, Kylie is in a legal battle not only for her future, but for Alex’s life. And she vows she will not stop fighting until Alex is fully vindicated.

(Kylie Tate #2)
Written by: Anne L. Parks

We start off not just with an engagement but a surprise wedding! Alex has finally convinced Kylie to marry him, all be it a surprise, and marry him just as the New Year is ringing in!

To date this journey for Alex and Kylie has been a bit rocky at times so we can only hope that this wedding will turn their future into the best of times for them.

However, this is a suspense/thriller series and we know Author Anne L. Parker is not going to end it this quickly!

If you thought books one and two were amazing, book 3 is packed full of action. Don’t forget the two people who could cause trouble escaped at the end of book two!

From an engagement to a wedding, followed by a honeymoon, readers have time to gear up for the non-stop action, from kidnapping, to the introduction of a new character, with James Wells and John Sysco still on the loose, anything can and will happen. There are moments when readers hold their breath wondering what is going on; how will Kylie and Alex get out of this craziness that has taken over.

This was a page-turner and I am sure I finished the book in record time!

Anne L. Parks gave readers a gamut of emotions from happiness, to fear, to anger, hate, shock and finally an ending that isn’t surprising but certainly could be anticipated. I would recommend this series if you enjoy suspense and romance.

*I received a copy of this book as a gift in exchange for my honest opinion.

I never thought I'd like this book as much as the others. I know, that sounds really cheesy, but it's true. After reading the first two books and becoming completely vested in not only the story, but the character's themselves, I guess I thought that the last book would just wrap everything up in a perfect little bow. Man...I was NOT prepared...and I was NOT disappointed.

After finally getting her life with Alex in a place that she could live happily ever after, Kylie's life turns upside down once again. Becoming a victim to a kidnapping that ends tragically, only to find out that the kidnapper is still out there will do things to you. Add in the fact that the dead body of your finances father turns up in your boathouse and I'd venture to say that ones sanity is pushed to it's limits. But Kylie doesn't have time to dwell on her own emotions. She only has one purpose in life now...defending the man she loves more than life itself.

This book is all about going to the ends of the earth for the one you love. It's amazing what someone will do when pushed to their limits. When Kylie is faced with the possibility of living without her man...move out of the way because she's not stopping...for anyone! This story really is VINDICATION!!!

What a fantastic end to a thrilling trilogy.
This fast paced novel will keep you on the edge of your seat from cover to cover. So much happens within the pages that I can't actually say much without giving anything away, and as this is the last book, trust me you'll want to uncover everything first hand as your head will be spinning!
Will Kylie and Alex finally get their happily ever after or will the demons from their past finally get their revenge and separate them forever?
Highly recommend you read this after the first two books, definitely not a standalone.
Look forward to seeing what the author comes up with next.

Vindication is an EPIC conclusion to Kylie's story, and it's a doozie for real so you should know that you HAVE TO READ Malevolent (Book 1) & Revenge (Book 2) FIRST AND IN ORDER! Kylie & Alex's relationship has developed into newly married & they're seriously HOT HOT HOT! Let me tell you, their romance is not the jewel in this thrilling crown but it is a fantastic portion of the program. Now, he's being set up for murder & she's going to have to do her best work yet, or Alex will die in the justice system, so you can only imagine her stress levels this round. Things only get more complicated when danger comes for her, and I was exhausted from all the moving parts after I devoured each & every page. The on the loose danger is insane, while HUGE twists are coming in hot all over the place, and again, I was on the edge of my seat dropping very loud f-bombs the whole ride. This trilogy is one that I'll be revisiting over & over again because I'm certain I missed things especially with my body acting like it was along for the ride in person. Anne L. Parks is brilliant so color me a new fan girl! This was one hell of a ride, and I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ALL!

Stephannie's 5 Star Review:

If you think this book is going to be a wrap-up of this story, think again. This one has just as many twists and turns that you don't see coming. I don't want to ruin anything for anyone, so I can't give you many details. But this book will keep on surprising you. It is a love story but also a thriller so a lot of the love is shown through how the characters deal with everything thrown at them.

In the last two books, both Kylie and Alex didn't always handle everything the best way. But I can tell you that in this book you see that these two do love each other so much that they would do almost anything for the other person and that right there is love. It is the most swoon-worthy type of love out there and it is very romantic to me. One-click this final book in the series to see these two battle for the one they love. Can these get the Vindication they both deserve?

     Vindication is the final book in the Kylie Tate series and I was not disappointed with how the author ended this trilogy. We get more mystery and suspense as well as more emotions. We also get the immense satisfaction of knowing the answers to all the questions that may still be present after the last two books.
     In this book, we find Kylie and Alex married and while they are on their honeymoon, she is kidnapped. After she is rescued, Alex's dad is found dead on Alex's property and he is arrested for murder. Now Kylie has to defend her husband. 
     My heart raced right along with all of the events that took place. I never knew what was coming next and really enjoyed all of the revelations. Plus John and James are still out there and they pose questionable dangers. 
     If you love romantic suspense/ thrillers, then don't waste another minute. Dive into book one now! You won't regret it.

I was really looking forward to this final part of Kylie and Alex's books. For the most part I wasn't disappointed. When both Kylie's ex-boyfriend and Alex's dad escape from the same prison hospital, you just knew you were in for a thrilling ride, and that ride starts very quickly, just when it looks like Kylie and Alex are finally getting their HEA. This time round though, although Kylie is once again initially the victim, this is turned on its head when Alex's father is murdered and alex is arrested and charged with his murder. Kylie is fighting for Alex and knows that something about this is very very wrong. I found myself almost screaming at this book as Kylie, Alex and those around them appeared blind, deaf and dumb as to who could be behind this, which I think let this book down a bit. None the less I enjoyed the final installment to this thriller/romance.

This is the 3rd and concluding part of this awesome trilogy. Kylie and Alex are finally getting the life which they deserve. When a murderer and psycho escape from prison, Alex’s father being the murderer, and when he is found dead on Alex’s estate, he is arrested and charged for the murder, and their happy ever after is tilted onto its axels. Kylie is determined to prove Alex’s innocence. This is a well written fast paced story which is filled with turmoil, suspense, danger, revenge, truths, intrigue, and love, which leads to a thrilling and entertaining [age turner. I look forward to reading more from this talented author whose work I recommend.

What a great last book in this series! I was kept glued to my earbuds and loved finding out what happened. We get a lot of questions answered from a multitude of characters. This is a wonderful ending for Kylie and Alex. I loved Alex as he has evolved through the stories. He is so strong and has swoon worthy alpha tendencies. In here he becomes the target not so much the protector. Kylie is the star with her smarts and wisdom. She really shines in this one and impressed me.

I did listen to this on audio. Raquel Beattie and Orcus Auditory did a wonderful job narrating this one as well as the series. They really helped bring the characters to life.

Vindication by Anne L. Parks is book Three in the Of Demons & Stones Series. This continues the story of Kylie Tate and Alex Stone. This book is not a standalone book and does need to be read in order. The previous books are as follows: Malevolent and Revenge. This series has been revamped with new covers also. This book has Kyle and Alex enjoying their much deserved life and honeymoon but then something happens that pulls them apart. This book and series has been nothing but a page turning reads. Will be looking for more book from this author.

Let me start by saying this trilogy was amazing.
Every book had my heart in mouth, holding onto my kindle with a death grip. Not knowing what was going to happen next with Kylie and Alex. I went through so many emotions, rooting for this couple and hoping they finally catch a break. They go through so much together.

I really enjoyed this final book. I was gobsmacked as everything unfolds. It was great ending.

Right when you thought all was going their way for Alex and Kylie- BAM. How about a kidnapping? Then a dead body found that is a escaped convict. Guess who gets the blame? So much turmoil and drama but most important is finding the real answers to this puzzle that is certain to have you scrambling for the real killer. Turn the pages on this one that adds spice to the series.

Kylie and Alex go through quite the journey in the conclusion to their trilogy.

Life is supposed to be sunshine and rainbows now that their lives are what they never thought that they wanted. Things have been falling into place even though they had to fight to get there. But it doesn’t last.

Alex’s life could very well be in danger. What will Kylie do to save the love of her life?
