What also found me shaking my head was the fact that all this (or most of it) happened before/during book 1. The hero in this book was a major part of book 1 and I felt I could have enjoyed him more (especially because I couldn't remember everything he did in book 1 and it would have made it much more interesting to read). I mean, why not just have this book 1st so we can enjoy the characters more in the next book. This going backward stuff is not for me. So, even though it's book 2 in the series, we are actually just caught up to the timeline of book 1. Ugh....I don't get it.
Also, did I mention how much I disliked the heroine? I mean, I get it, she went through the ringer, but I felt like her constant disconnection from the hero was getting old. I felt it slowed the story down and definitely turned me off their romance. Especially the ending. I found it very disappointing. I mean, for as much as we had to deal with all this little annoying crap from this couple, I felt we were owed a much better ending.
I couldn't stand her best friend and now, we find out that's going to be Casper/her brother's girl? Again...we'll be going back to when it started with them and how much of the future will be included for the others?
One of the things I like about series books is you kind of get to see where the previous couple is at in their relationship, not get dropped off at their starting points in the progressing books.
Anyway, this is just my opinion. I guess I expected a little bit more after I found the first one so amazing.
I would totally recommend the 1st book. I don't think I would the 2nd....probably even the 3rd. Especially with the way the upcoming heroine for book 3 was presented in book 2.
I've been impatiently waiting to get my hands on Craving Redemption since I finished Craving Constellations, Dragon and Brenna's book (LOVED Craving Constellations). This is a weird review for me because I couldn't put Craving Redemption down, but there were parts I had to skim through because I was just uncomfortable reading them, as well as the last half of the book seemed rushed.
Callie is a typical sixteen year old girl, sneaking out and pushing boundaries that her parents set. Twenty year old Asa is a member of the Aces MC. One night he walks into a party Callie has snuck out to go to and ends up saving Callie from what could have been a really bad situation, little did they both know the events of that night would tragically change Cailie's life.
Asa immediately feels protective over Callie but knows he has to leave her, he is too old and experienced for her. Events occur that bring Asa immediately back into Callie's life and leads them on a roller coaster ride of heartbreak, emotional ups/downs, tragedies and finally happiness.
Craving Redemption starts where Craving Constellations ends, then the flashback immediately begin, throughout the book Asa and Callie went through incredibly hard times, times that would break most people. The story was really good, Asa had good intentions and Callie was a strong young lady. I loved seeing Dragon, Poet and the crew. BUT for me, after all the drama Callie and Asa suffered throughout the years the ending was rushed. I also felt there were a lot of holes where the story just jumped from time frame to time frame towards the middle to end of the book.
What bothered me the most was first half of the book was mostly about Callie at sixteen and seventeen years old and her relationship with Asa. Honestly, I felt icked out reading about a sixteen/seventeen year old's full out sex life with an adult, it kinda made me feel like a perv, so I skimmed those parts. . I mean HONESTLY I NEVER EVER again want to read about a sixteen year old girl with pimples and braces giving a blow job to a twenty year old man, yes I skimmed it but the mental damage has been done, what was read cannot be un-read. I was very disappointed because it took until 95% in the book before we get to present day and their story pretty much ends at about 96%, the rest of the book is setting up book three. I would've like more of present time with Asa and Callie. That being said I did read it all in one sitting hoping that they jumped back to present day sooner than they did. I won't re read this one but I will read Craving Constellations over and over again. I hope the next book is more present day based, I'm just not a huge fan of reading a book where a large part of the story has YA age characters. If you don't mind the sixteen/seventeen year old angle, than I think you will enjoy this book a lot.

I didn't read any reviews before starting Craving Redemption. I loved the first book so much that I didn't even bother.Read more
