Noah, Noah, Noah my heart bled for you and my eyes wept for you. In this heartbreaking story we finally find out what the tragic and terrible demons are that's haunting Noah and driving him to be such a self-loathing man-whore. And, because of those demons, he purposely shattered and destroyed the close bond and friendship he had with Kit - the only woman he ever truly cared for. Now, a few years later, he has finally hit rock bottom, and the self destruct button, but before he takes that poisonous road he drunkenly reaches out to Kit...... maybe to hear her voice again, maybe for forgiveness, maybe it's his cry for help.... or just maybe subconsciously it's his soul reaching for it's mate.
Kit, who's now a successful actress, had been heartbroken, devastated and shocked by Noah and what he'd done to her and she's never gotten over him or moved on... instead she's living in a world of emotional self denial when it comes to Noah. But when she casually answers her phone at 2.30 one night everything changes because on the other end is a broken man crying out to be saved and she knows she doesn't want a world without Noah in it no matter what he has done. And that starts them both on the very emotional roller-coaster ride to forgiveness, trust, understanding, redemption, passion..... and love.
This was such a pain-filled yet beautiful listen where I cried for both Kit and Noah as their war torn relationship was strewn with hurtful memories amongst the wreckage of their past. But it was slowly pieced back together again with tears, tenderness, understanding, hope and mental peace as the past was finally faced and forgiven and Noah's childhood secrets were revealed. There is also drama because Kit has a Stalker who is becoming more and more unstable and, despite her Bodyguards, the Stalker manages to come face to face with Kit and the outcome could be deadly. All the other well loved secondary characters from the previous books are present and step in and out of scenes.
An emotionally draining but truly wonderful bitter-sweet love story of a Rocker's self disgust and self destruction but, through a lot of character growth.... and an enduring love, he is redeemed, saved and finds his HEA. I love Nalini Singh's books, I'm in awe of her writing skills, I hungered for every word and she's one of my auto download Authors but what really brought this to life was Justine O. Keef's perfect narration. Woman you nailed it and you added the magic that transformed a great book into a wonderful listen - thank you.
Worth a credit? I savoured and devoured every Chapter virtually in one sitting.... so that's a YES from me.

The whole series is awesome! Lots of hot drama with a happy ending. Great narration.
This book made me laugh out loud, cry and want more. I love the interaction between Noah and Kit. Sometimes life is messy and doesn’t go the way we expect it. Sometimes we need to learn to let the Sparrows go free.
This book in the Rock Kiss series tells the story of Noah, the guitar player in the School Boy Choir rock group, and Kit, the rising star actress who has been in love with him for a long time. Rock Redemption deals with some heavy issues that aren't fully explained until 3/4 of the way through the book. For me, it wasn't as easy to listen to as the first two books (the second book, Rock Hard, is one of my favorite books). The narrator, Justine O'Keefe, as always, does a terrific job with the voices.
Another great book with an amazing and surprising storyline. I love this series of books.
