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.

Like most of the readers, I read the first chapter of Retribution back when I read Distraction. Since then, almost a year later, I've waited for this book. All I can say is Xavier is back! The story picks up where the Justine and Xavier's relationship left off some seven years later. Justine knew the day would come when she'd have to face Xavier and reveal the secret that could ruin everything they had, including the beautiful memories they created. They meet unexpectedly only now Justine is a widow, cursed with relentless guilt of her past wrong doings. Xavier steps back into Justine's life, forcing her to make the right choices for her and her son's future. Xavier was such a rock in the book and I will forever refer to him as the music man. Both characters made significant mistakes in their lives, but the beauty was their determination to see things through for the good of their family's future. With the years comes more challenges like raising teenagers and divorce. What I loved about Retribution, was Campbell didn't write a cookie-cut romance, she wrote a beautifully in-depth story about love, loss, friendship and how wonderful things can be when two people make amends.

On a side not, I can't get enough of the Proverbs Campbell put before each chapter, giving the reader a hint of what's to come. I loved this. Here's a sample:
Proverb: Bush have ears and wall have eyes.
Meaning: Be careful how you disclose sensitive information that can filter to those you don’t want to know your business.

If you're looking for a different take on romance and you're willing to take a journey with a couple that make their fair share of mistakes, then Retribution is just the book for you!

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.
