Now, Ben, the hero in this book, was actually a villain in another book in the Corona Pride series, but you can read Savage Redemption without having read other books in the series. This one stands alone nicely. The important thing is that Ben was a bad guy who now feels terrible about his past actions, and is doing everything in his power to make up for them. In this book, he’s an exceptionally nice guy—and y’all know how much I love a nice guy hero.
Delilah is a pretty good heroine, too. She’s a young mom who has been forced into an impossible situation, and she’s dealing with it the best she can. Her devotion to her little one is admirable.
So, why not a 5 star rating? It’s a little instalove-y, frankly. I don’t really mind that too much in shifter romance, but Delilah isn’t a shifter. Sure, Ben’s a super nice guy who does a lot for her, and he’s stupid hot. But she doesn’t really KNOW him all that well before she falls for him.
But, minor nitpick notwithstanding, this is a good, solid read from an author I’ve come to trust. The series is definitely 1-clickable if you’re into stories about hot shifters who aren’t jerks and the woman who love them.
