Review: Road To Redemption by May Gordon




Published 2018

Blurb: Stella Hames has always been alone. Her mom neglected her, and her dad left them both, which means loneliness was her only companion. When she meets Wyatt Huntley, she sees the same isolation within him and sets out to be his friend. But he broke her heart, leaving a stain on her young soul. Stella left Orchard Valley soon after and didn’t return for fifteen years.


Wyatt Huntley grew up with a drunk father who believed in abuse instead of affection, an indifferent mother, and the toxic love they called a relationship. Because of this, he knew he never wanted any connection with a woman, but when the sweet girl he rejected walks back into his life everything changes. At that moment, he swears he’ll do everything in his power to make up for the past, no matter how much she hates him. That’s when he realizes though the road to redemption may be long, Stella is worth every step.

Warning: Sweet, sexy and safe read! Happily ever after guaranteed! This author writes what she likes to read. That means there will be instalove, OTT Heroes, and, brace yourselves, virgin characters at times. If none of those float your boat, you might want to find another book. If they do, you’re in the right place.


May be spoilers:

Road to Redemption is the 2nd in the Second Chances series. This story has 14 chapters and 3 epilogues and is about Wyatt and Stella.

It’s been 15 years since they have seen each other. Wyatt said some hurtful things when they were younger and broke her heart as they were both going through similar things.

When they meet again, she is not happy, but neither is he. When he finds out who she is, he’s so happy, but sad too, because he knew that he hurt her.

She definitely makes him work for it, but he’s all in from first look. I love that he’s very quick to apologize when he is wrong.

I love that they are both virgins. It was a good story. Lots of back and forth, that’s probably the only negative for me.

Little steam in parts, no cheating, no real ow/om drama, no separations once they get together.

Epilogue is a week later, then 5 years later, then 10 years later. They are happily married with 3 kids.I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.  Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out.
