I really enjoyed this entire series. After book 1 it changed and just got even better. I was anxious for Kieran's story and it was everything I wanted it to be. Kieran is a very dark, quite and dangerous guy but once he finds "the one" man he gets possessive and I loved that! Jessica was a surprise for me, I wasn't sure how I was feeling about her and if she could be trusted but in the end I loved her too. There was a lot of excitement and sadness in this one and it had a bittersweet ending. I'll be watching for more books by this author for sure.
I'm a broken record about the narration. Jason & Erin are amazing! They both really knocked this series out of the park. PERFECT casting!

I thought I was going to have a major book hangover after finishing my last listen but wow.. this very addictive captivating story, and its colorful characters, quickly pulled me out of my book funk and satisfyingly submerged me into a compelling Mafia suspense/romance story.
Kieran is the Holloway mob’s assassin.. they call him Nightshade.. he’s darkness, stealth and no-one sees this cold killer coming because he silently blends into the shadows.. and his weapon of choice is a knife.. or, more precisely, knives. He, and a few close allies, have been slowly planning to overthrow their cruel manipulative evil boss and things finally come to a head in this final book in the Redemption series.. but it’s not without heartbreaking casualties. There are two sides to this handsome anti-hero.. his dark side of Nightshade and Kieran is his softer side.. but he has a broken heart after events in book 2. However, when he meets a strange ‘working girl’ called Jessica who also has a crazy side which he calls Chaos.. she’ll intrigue him, frustrate him, keep secrets, be the only person to sense him without actually seeing him and, despite their demons, she’ll throw an emotional curveball that’ll show him they were made for each other.
Jessica has had a terrible childhood and her mother’s drug use/abuse has created an overwhelming financial burden and left Jessica with few options over her life. Demons from her past, demons in her present and demons that want to manipulate her future have forced Jessica to create a carefree crazy upbeat facade.. but deep down she’s desperate for someone to really see her, to slay her demons and to save her from her nightmare life. Nightshade/Kieran might just be the right person to do it.. but between them and their HEA there’s a whole hell of a lot of obstacles in their way.
What an emotional and riveting slow-build to this love story that unfortunately ends a powerful and unforgettable three book series. It was well-written, angst-ridden, full of drama, had amazingly colorful characters, heat, heartache, passion, pain, suspense, bloodshed, some humor and challenging relationship issues as the hero and heroine had off-the-charts chemistry but zero trust in one another. I loved the unraveling of Jessica and Kieran’s lives and the development of their relationship, mutual dependency and love.. a love that would finally let the light into their darkly tainted lives.
Worth a credit? Definitely a big, bursting at the seams, YES. It’s non-stop action and the rollercoaster of highs and lows don’t stop til the bitter-sweet end. It could possibly be standalone but each book connects characters and develops the secondary plot further taking it to its final conclusion within this book. The dual POV narration is spot on.. conjuring and creating deliciously colorful mental images of the characters, their emotions, their quirks, the action-packed scenes and the suspenseful drama to life making it an unforgettable listen.
