Hello, alpha male romance enthusiasts! It’s time for another Penelope Marshall book titled Absolution, a companion novel to Unleashed, a particularly titillating drama. So, are you ready for deep emotions, hot heat, and a twisted woman out for revenge?
Overall Rating: 5/6 Glass Slippers
Genre: Military Romance
Adeline is grieving, working hard to put the pieces of her life together. Her fiance, Ezra, died at war and now visits her in her dreams, both giving her comfort and tearing her apart. Things are made more difficult due to her living situation. Adeline still lives in the home she shared with Ezra and his fellow soldier Cole, as well as Cole’s girlfriend Catherine. While their presence could be comforting, Adeline feels misplaced anger at Cole surviving his deployment while Ezra did not.
But when Cole and Catherine break up and Catherine is forced to move, Cole and Adeline form a bond that teeters on the edge of something more. But there’s something else getting in the way than just Ezra’s ghost and it might be more dangerous than either of them could imagine.
Overall, it was a nice read. The scenes were fast paced, the sex a solid romp, and the emotions raw. There was also some unexpected twists that I certainly didn’t expect, which says a lot due to the amount of books I read in a single week. So, if you like some action with your romance and a story that could totally be true, get your copy of Absolution now.
