Exclusive Excerpt: The Redemption by S.L. Scott

REDEMPTION

Coming November 3rd is the much-awaited follow-up to the New York Times bestseller, The Resistance by S.L. Scott! The Redemption features Dex and Rochelle’s story and can be read as a standalone. You can expect the same rock star sexiness, emotion and romance as you can see from the delicious little excerpt below.

Synopsis

redemption coverHe was everything she never wanted. Yet, she couldn’t stop thinking about him.

Soulful, amber eyes

A sex, drugs, and rock n’roll reputation

A body that beckoned for sin

Three years ago Rochelle Floros was living her dream come true… then lost it all. On the worst day of her life, the last person she expected to be there for her was a rock star and tabloid favorite. Now, she’s trying to rebuild her life after the tragedy that destroyed her fairytale. Slowly, she found herself captivated by a sexy, bad boy drummer she had known for years.

Rochelle was caught between the grief that shrouded her heart and the charismatic man that made it race. What she didn’t know is if he was being sincere or toying with her heart. The Redemption is about finding the pulse of your soul in the most unlikely places and giving love a chance to grow.

Can what she wants really be what she needs? With his rhythm and her passion, can they make music together? Or will their harmony be lost forever?

Excerpt

“I’m leaving tomorrow.”

Wrapping my arm around him, I ask, “Where are you going?” I know he can hear my fears, the loss of him already felt deep within.

“I’m going to my grandfather’s house for a week. My mother called a meeting. My brother will be there.”

“Would you like me to go with you?”

He kisses my forehead, then says, “I wouldn’t wish that kind of trip on an enemy. Definitely never on someone I love.”

Love. My head swims in the undertow of his words. “You say things like that so easily, like you think I won’t notice.”

That makes him laugh, which is something I love. He replies, “I’m tired of hiding my feelings, but that doesn’t mean I’m gonna shout it from the rooftops just yet. I have a lot of shit to deal with that I don’t think you should be dragged into.”

“I think we’re both tired of hiding. That’s why I came over.”

Maneuvering over me, with an eyebrow wiggle, he asks, “So you’ve finally fallen for my charms, huh?”

I smile. “Your charms have been working a lot longer than you know.”

Hovering over me and with a cocky head nod, he says, “I knew I’d wear you down.”

“Oh, Mr. Caggiano, you’ve worn me out… I mean down, several times.”

Pressing his hips and his very apparent erection between my legs, he says, “And I look forward to doing it again.”

“Who knew the wild, bad boy drummer of The Resistance had the willpower of a saint? Not me.”

With a deep laugh, he says, “Me either. Just know when we’re together again, it won’t be just sex. It’ll be an unwritten contract. A promise from my heart to yours.”

My heart starts thudding in my chest and I pull him down, bringing his lips to mine and kiss him, making my own promise to him.
