"He needed to be alone. He wanted to get away. A year on an island by himself sounded heavenly. Five-star accommodations or not, this punishment would be a piece of cake."
Tack has to atone for his sins, so he is sent to the island. Juliet must pay a price as well, and the Island is where the payment must take place.
"Repentant for sin or not, this tropical haven was the religious revival she needed. She’d atone in the sun, bask in freedom, and hold no regret for the evil she’d done."
Redemption Island was the book you take into a movie theater and read while flashes of the story appear so vivid in your mind that it is as if you could mentally project them onto the screen.
“I think I want you to tame me,” he hummed. “But you make me wild instead.”
This story was so incredibly different that what I was accustomed to from Author L. B. Dunbar. I was stunned and in awe. Although I have always enjoyed her stories, Redemption Island had a edge of mystery that surpassed the others and made me hang on each word.
"Each day, I feel as if I’m in a dream, and when night falls, I’m afraid to sleep and end the dream.”
I could feel the change in Tack and Juliet from the beginning of the story until the end. Their emotions, actions, and reactions remained true to their characters, but also revealed just how much impact they had on each other. It was so interesting how their life on the island, though immeasurably different, still paralleled real life.
"Without anger, we cannot know peace. Without hatred, we do not know love. It’s about recognizing one and controlling the other.”
The redemptive nature of the story coupled with a renewed love for self and others made this story emotionally compelling and physically rejuvenating. There was no doubt in my mind that this island had been created for Tack and Juliet to find one another in a new way, and I was their biggest cheerleader, cheering them on and wearing my emotions on my sleeve the whole way. There were shadows of sadness and despair that became lined with hope and newfound life. Laughing, crying, and celebrating with these characters, I heralded the triumph in their journey as they passed through each hurdle.
Redemption Island was a bold and suspenseful beginning to this new duet. Can't wait for more!
Why not 5 stars? I have to wait until October for the ending!!!! When I first saw LB Dunbar giving out tidbits on this book, I was hooked. I couldn't wait for the opportunity to read this book and was privileged to receive an ARC. Thank you for the privilege.
Can you imagine living alone on a island for a year to reflect on the wrong you have done in your life. Meet Juliet and Tack. Both have made mistakes and paying for their sins on Redemption Island. Juliet has struggled to make something of more of herself. Working as a waitress at the Front Door while studying for her masters degree, allowing curiosity to lead her to making a bad decision, now she is living alone on an island as part of social experiment instead of incarceration. Tack, a rich boy, given everything he wants, used to taking what he wants, takes what he shouldn't one night and now is paying the price, alone on an island.
Can two wrongs make a right? Can they redeem themselves and forgive themselves? Have the past two months been real? Not everything is at it seems, only the island seems to know.
LB Dunbar gives us food for thought on questioning the grey in life, not everything is black and white and should not be taken at face value.
Mistakes were made, challenges are faced and the changeover of Tack and Juliet from beginning to end was fascinating. Who they were -the wrongs that were done, Who they are becoming – The Anger and Sadness flips. There’s healing, forgiveness and Love but there is also a mysteriousness of the island that has me questioning things.
I’m hanging on, waiting patiently for October to be here for the continuation back to the island.
I’m loving the darker side of L.B
Redemption Island is a path only L.B. Dunbar has seen. It's a story that is so unique you can't help but be pulled in. I found even though I needed to adult- I couldn't pull away. The worst part is I began this story knowing this is a duet and then was crushed when it ended.
Not enough grabby hands in the world to get me book two but I am very excited for the answers I need. The ending I hope to get...
Conspiracy theories and choose your own ends won't satisfy- No, you will NEED book two.
reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood
This may seem strange, but as I read the book I felt that Redemption Island itself became a character. To me it represented the challenges the characters needed to face and accept to achieve peace. Their growth flourished to the tempo of the island and it was beautiful to watch.
Redemption Island is the first book of a duet and after finishing it, October can not come fast enough!
