The New York Times bestselling author of Vicious Cycle plunges readers into a world of danger and desire in her newest in the Vicious Cycle motorcycle club romance series.

Looking for a walk on the wild side, Annabel Percy, the daughter of a powerful politician, starts dating a biker she knows is completely wrong for her. But she finds herself living a nightmare when she’s kidnapped and transported into a hell on earth she never could have imagined.

Born and bred into the Hells Raiders MC, Nathaniel “Reverend” Malloy lives and dies for his brothers. But when he becomes the unexpected savior of a rival club’s captive, Rev makes it his personal mission to nurse Annabel back to health—and to shelter her from the nightmares that torment her.

Once Annabel heals, she’s stunned to realize she is falling for the seductive man who saved her. Faced with their impossible attraction, can she accept the life he leads, or will Rev walk away from the only life he’s ever known for the woman he was never supposed to love?


Somehow two broken people had found the other half that completed them and made them whole. The worst circumstances had brought us together, but some of the greatest loves in the world were born of tragedy.

WOW what an emotional, explosive and truly action-packed read!

It’s no secret Redemption Road was one of my most anticipated books in 2015 and it was even MORE than I was expecting. It was such an exhilarating adventure with a gritty setting. I wanted high stakes and danger and I got that — shoot-outs, notoriously vicious gangs, mayhem, secrets, lies and of course romance.

Katie Ashley really did an awesome job in illustrating the gritty feel of life of MC clubs. When the characters were in danger, I believed it. The ruthlessness I expected? Totally there. Katie created a world of grit and chaos and it lived up to what it was set up to be.

And as always, I enjoyed Katie’s writing. She’s got a way with words, and there were so many sentences worth highlighting. I love that her characters feel real, even when they’re unlikeable. They make mistakes, they hurt the people they love, they lie, they’re selfish…but I love them. Because it is through their flaws that completely capture what it means to be human. Just like the characters in this book.

I loved Rev’s voice and even from the first book, I could immediately see his spunk and spirit. He’s such a tough, strong character… but I enjoyed that he had moments of vulnerability and weakness.

Katie also introduced me to a heroine I’ll never forget…Annabel Percy. I felt so tied to her emotions – her highs and her lows. I understood her anger, and I was repelled by it. I felt like I was right beside her as she faced the harsh frontier and fought back with every ounce of strength inside her.

And I’d be remiss if I didn’t also mention the romance. This couple earned a spot on my list all-time favorites, but you’ll have to read it for yourself to see why. But one this is for sure…it’s scorching hot!

Overall, Redemption Road was a rip-roaring good read. The tough characters, hunt for revenge, and thrill of the MC life make this worth picking up. If you’re a fan of plot-driven books packed with action and adventure, this book certainly fits the bill. Reading it almost felt like watching a movie because I could totally imagine it as a blockbuster hit with a star-studded cast!



Nathaniel “Rev” Malloy captured my heart in this story. My heart immediately ached for him and what happened to him. Rev’s story is not light and it is filled with agony. His tortured thoughts and the way he sees himself broke me. I wanted to wrap my arms around him and comfort him. Rev stole my heart.

Annabel was just the heroine I expected her to be. Through everything, she stayed strong and found her way out of the darkness. The chemistry between her and Rev was awe inspiring. It was natural and developed well over time. He was her savior.

I didn’t really know what to expect with Redemption Road, but once again I fell head over heels for the hero that Katie Ashley created. This story is deep, dark and heartwarming. I’m excited for Last Mile and can’t wait for Bishops book. Another great story from Katie Ashley!
