Synopsis VIA Goodreads

Four years ago, Angela Reardon was brutally attacked, and she still bears the physical scars and traumatic memories. While she's worked hard to overcome her fears and build a successful business, she's still haunted by her inability to identify her assailant. Now Angela only wants to be left alone-until a shadowy stranger reignites her desire to be loved. But their time together may be brief...because someone wants her dead.

CIA assassin Jake Stone's targets deserved to die. Until now. Until he falls in love with the innocent woman he's been hired to kill. Jake can't fight his attraction to Angela, and he knows that someone else will be sent to finish the job. So can he save Angela and redeem himself by uncovering who wants her killed? When the trail leads him into the carnal underbelly of L.A., the truth is more shocking than even he could ever imagine.

Thank you to Forever Yours for an e-arc in exchange for an honest review

Risky Redemption is a adult contemporary romance which was really not what I was expecting, it really surprised me in a good way.

So the story involves an ex seal/CIA agent who is an assassin for hire. His latest target is our leading lady. The book opens with a punch and your thrown into a mystery, investigating a crime that has happened involving Jake's latest target. Along with Jake, you go back and forth between past and present slowly putting the pieces together. Its told in duel POV between Jake and our leading lady but mostly from Jakes POV.

The plot is what really had me intrigued and kept me on the edge of my seat. Even though its sold as a contemporary romance, I got a thriller and mystery vibe from it. There is romance of course but I think the main theme in this book is in the title, its a book about redemption. 

What I loved is I couldn't figure out who had done the crime, I released part of what was happening exactly when the character did. I loved not having a clue. I am giving a warning for Risky Redemption however as it was hard to read at times with the topic of rape being a theme in the book.

Overall I couldn't put it down and was intrigued throughout. I highly recommend Risky Redemption if your not looking for your typical straight forward contemporary romance. 3.75 Stars!
