Craving Redemption (The Aces #2) by Nicole Jacquelyn
Asa and Callie had nothing in common. He was an Ace, raised in the club and loyal to it above all else. She was a high school student with braces on her teeth and a narrow view of the world.
They should have never crossed paths.
But when Callie decides to defy her parents, and Asa goes on an errand for the club, their lives collide. He saves her, and she mesmerizes him.
They part believing they’ll never see each other again.
Neither could have predicted the chain of events they’d put in motion.
Now the two have to navigate the dark waters of a relationship built on tragedy and need without drowning in guilt for things outside their control.
How do you love someone when the worst decision of your life was the reason you met them?
This book is literally chock full of f*%$ed up people. Asa (Greaser), Callie, Farrah. Its like every chapter is full of some of the most horrible things that can happen to a person. But its so good. I devoured every page, every chapter and still I wanted more.
I knew Callie was destined for a melt down at some point. She just had entirely too much going on in her past and her present. She was damaged. And only at 16. smh
Asa (Greaser). What can I say about this biker bad boy? He's definitely one of those people who love to be needed and he hit a jackpot with Callie. Granted, he "saved" her at the beginning of the book, but as the story progresses you see that there's this twisted needy relationship between the two. And every time you think they're finally going to get their HEA BOOM some other stuff happens. By the end of the book I am begging and pleading for them to be a family.
Since initially reading this book in October of 2013 I've reread it again to prepare for Poet's book (Craving Resurrection) and it is still as messed up then as it is now. All I can say is its full of feelings : retribution, angst, sorrow, anger, hate, accusation, love, devotion...the list goes on.
Definitely worth your time.
