Reformed gangster Luis falls hard for his boss. When friendship turns to love, it’s up to Paolo to convince him second chances are worth the pain.

Luis Pope is back on the street after a six year stretch in prison, but life on the outside seems just out of reach, especially when the whole neighbourhood knows his face for all the wrong reasons.

Paolo’s temper makes it hard to keep staff, and he knows Luis’s rep all too well. But his nonno believes in redemption, and Luis isn’t the tough guy Paolo remembers. Prison has left its mark, inside and out, and all the kindness in the world can’t fix the three inch scar on Luis’s skull.

And it can’t keep ghosts locked up. Luis’s the best worker Paolo’s ever had, and Luis’s happier than he’s ever been. But his old life doesn’t want to stay in the past. Trouble comes to call, and when it makes him an offer he can’t refuse, keeping Paolo safe hurts the most.

Redemption is an angsty, standalone MM romance novel, with second chances, found family, friends-to-lovers, and buckets of hurt/comfort themed loveliness.

I absolutely loved Daniel in the latest MC Securities entry from Ruby Moone

70012269_592539947817803_4029398670540537856_nLoving Daniel by Ruby Moone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the paraphrased words of the Kaiser Chiefs – “Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, do you know what you do to me?”

This, the third in what has been an excellent first contemporary romance series from the usually historical pen of Ruby Moone, was my absolute favourite.

There’s something uniquely appealing about a ‘hard man’ who falls in love and will do anything for his loved one and Daniel’s been doing just that for his second cousin Christian since he was forced to walk away from him 12 years earlier.

One of the main influences in this story is in a coffin when it starts, and I’m quite glad about that because I’d have liked to put Daniel’s father in one myself.

The feel of the dodgy criminal underworld of Manchester was so very well done and from events in this book, I suspect it’s not actually the last time we’ll venture to those parts.

Or rather, I hope it isn’t because I really want to know more about Eric Daly and I’m fascinated with both Asher and Tassos.

Moderately steamy, but chock full of all the emotions, this is a fab read.
