One of the reasons that I like Ms. Campbell's novels is they're like taking a little trip to Jamaica, only one that fits my current budget.

Yolanda, Justine's 14-year-old daughter, is playing guitar. Unknown to Justine, the music shop, Rapporté, where Yolanda prefers to shop and have her guitar worked on, belongs to Xavier. Xavier, the man with whom Justine broke off a passionate affair, seven years ago. The man who is 6 ½ year-old Emile's father, but doesn't know it.

Until the day a now-widowed Justine brings Yolanda's guitar in for more work, and Emile follows his mother into the shop, while Xavier comes out to meet this super-fussy customer.

This novel continues the story of Justine and Xavier from Distraction, but works on its own as a stand-alone; you don't have to read Distraction to enjoy this novel. However, unlike Distraction, only has one storyline, that of Justine and Xavier. Girlfriends Dionne and Kyra do make cameo appearances, they do not carry their own storylines.

While it takes Xavier only one glance to realize that Emile is his son, he does not know that Justine is widowed. She does not know that Xavier has been separated from his wife for two years, and has already filed for divorce. This novel is about how these two people, who are still so strongly drawn to one another, learn to admit the chemistry is still there, to forgive past wounds, and to work towards a relationship that is complicated by their children.

I felt like this started out a bit slow, and Justine was irritatingly wussy at first. In the middle, it really caught fire. The chapter headings that all begin with a Jamaican proverb are wonderful, and I liked getting to hear from Xavier's point of view.

Justine had an affair years ago. Even though it ended, she kept a big secret...a child. Her son, Emile, thinks his father is Justine's husband, the one who passed away years ago. When Justine and Emile collide with Xavier, Emile's real dad, things get interesting.

The resemblance between Emile and Xavier is undeniable. All kinds of questions pop up. Will Justine and Xavier get back together? They still have feelings for each other--even though they're fighting about Emile, whether he should know the truth or not, and whether he should spend time with Xavier. They two of them also have rebellious teenage daughters who cause numerous problems. An even bigger problem is Annette, Xavier's wife whom he's divorcing. Annette isn't taking this news well.

I love J.L.'s adult fiction. There's always plenty of page-turning drama with realistic characters. I enjoyed being immersed in Justine and Xavier's world for a few hours. I look forward to the next book in this series, Absolution. I'm glad I can continue reading more about these characters.

J.L. Campbell's "Retribution" was a hell of a read and picked up right where "13 Steps to Distraction" left off. I absolutely love the 3 best friends that are there for each other through thick and thin. I hate that I didn't read these two stories before I read "Absolution" because I would have had a much better appreciation for that story when reading it. I was more sympathetic toward Annette in "Absolution" even though I knew she had issues, but after reading the first two stories of this group, I am glad that Xavier handled jus business and that Justine got her man, lol. I can't wait to read the next story in this Intriguing a Series.
