Synopsis:

REDEMPTION IS NEVER FREE

When Reece Murphy is forcibly dragged into the Rose Riders gang because of a mysterious gold coin in his possession, he vows to find the man who gave him the piece and turn him over to the gang in exchange for freedom. Never does he expect a lead to come from an aspiring female journalist. But when Reece’s path crosses with Charlotte Vaughn after a botched train robbery and she mentions a promising rumor about a gunslinger from Prescott, it becomes apparent that she will be his ticket to freedom—or a noose. As the two manipulate each other for their own ends, past secrets are unearthed, reviving a decade-old quest for revenge that may be impossible to settle


My Review:

I listened to this as an audiobook as I did with the first one. I liked the characters in this one better – I thought both Reece and Charlotte had much more depth and interesting characteristics to them than Kate and Jesse did in the first one, and I really liked how their relationship grew gradually over the course of the book without anything definite about their future in the end, leaving things a little open-ended. It was definitely a fun read, with the Wild West feel and gunslingers and high stakes and whatnot, I just didn’t love it entirely. I would probably recommend this book and its prequel, though, for someone looking for a fun fast-paced read.
