Demons. Regrets. Absolution.
Luke has lived on the wrong side of the law since he was seventeen. His hands are stained and his soul is black, but the worst sin he’s committed is falling in love with his brother’s girl. Then he met her. Addy Monroe is pure, innocent and stubborn as an ox. Even though he doesn’t deserve her, Luke will stop at nothing to have her. But just when happiness is within his grasp fate rips her away, reminding him once again that there is no absolution for sinners. Will Luke be able to let color fill his blackened soul?
From the first time Addy saw Luke Colloway over ten years ago she wanted him. Addy has been attracted to rough, crude, inked bad boys with a bike planted securely between their thighs and wicked promises falling from their lips her entire life. Every one of them has let her down. Every one of them has broken her heart. Every one of them has put her second. She’s never going to let that happen again. When Luke promises her a future, will Addy let him in only to have her heart broken again?
Book 3 in a 4 book series. Each book features a different brother and each can be read as a STANDALONE. To get the full Colloway Brother experience, however, it’s most enjoyable to read in order.
***Mature readers only, 18+. Features alpha men with foul language and penchant for hot sex.
“I feel like I’m diving head first into the shallow end of the pool. There are warning signs posted everywhere, but I ignore them, taking the dangerous plunge anyway, praying I don’t hit bottom, ending up paralyzed.”
“Riding the rails of hope is like being on a rollercoaster. The g-force is intoxicating for those few short seconds; then the ride is over and the rush is left behind on the ground far below. Each time you ride it, the thrill is short lived, but damn it…you’re addicted now and you want to do it over and over again just to get that heady feeling one more time. Luke is hope. Luke is my rollercoaster. One I’ll surely crash and burn.”
Broken Characters: Check. Sexy, Determined Alpha Male: Check. Friends to Lovers Story-line: Check, Check! Luke’s Absolution checked all my boxes for a great read and then some. Luke’s Absolution is the third book in the Colloway Brothers series, but it can definitely be read as a stand-alone.
From the moment I picked up Luke and Addy’s story, I was hooked. Luke has a lot of demons and regrets in his life. His slate is anything but clean. He thought he knew everything he wanted out of life, until he met Addy. Addy is sweet, innocent and has the worst stubborn streak. He knows that he’s wrong for her and will taint her, but he can’t help but be drawn to her. And even though he knows he’ll never be what she deserves, he will stop at nothing to make her his….Addy has been in love with Luke for as long as she can remember. But, Addy has been burned so many times in her life. She wants a man to put her first for once. So, even though she’s been in love with Luke for as long as she can remember, Luke is a bad boy and she’s not ready to let this bad boy have her heart. What she didn’t count on was Luke’s stubbornness and determination. Will Luke be able to wear Addy down and make her take a chance on what she’s always wanted? Will Luke find peace and get the HEA he’s always needed?
Overall, I really enjoyed this story. It pulled me in from the very beginning. It was so easy to fall in love with Luke. He’s damaged and broken and 100% alpha male. I couldn’t help but find myself rooting for him to get the girl. I loved how determined he was and how he never gave up on Addy; no matter how many times she tried to push him away. And Addy…I just loved her. I found her very easy to connect with. I loved how stubborn she was and how she didn’t just give into Luke. I appreciated that she made him prove to her that she was the one he truly wanted. I loved the chemistry that these two shared. Their connection was not only instant, but it was scorching. Their push and pull was so strong. I couldn’t wait for these two to give into the passion they shared and let me tell you, it was so worth the wait.
Luke’s Absolution is the first book that I’ve read by this author and I have to tell you, I can not wait to read more! She has given me a wonderful read with intriguing characters. This story and the characters are impossible to not fall in love with. And by the time you finish, the only complaint that you will have is that the story is over.
