Publisher's Summary

"You're a hero every f--king day, Tate," I said softly. "Don't ever forget that." (Hawke)

Ex-Special Forces soldier Michael "Hawke" Hawkins has spent every day of the last 10 years waiting for the moment he would get to watch the life fade from the eyes of the men who brutally murdered his wife, but when he finally gets the break he's been waiting for, the trail leads him to someone he wasn't expecting.

After nearly two years of running, 24-year-old Tate Travers has become an expert at hiding...until the day a dangerous stranger shows up looking for vengeance and threatens to destroy the fragile life Tate has managed to build for himself and his five-year-old son. Except the life Tate has been struggling to hold on to started unraveling long before Hawke showed up looking for the same men Tate has been running from...his own father and older brother.

Retribution - it's all Hawke has wanted since the day he held his wife's hand as she took her last breath. And he won't give that up for anything or anyone...not even the tormented young man trying to give his little boy a better life. Because Tate is the only one who can lead Hawke to the men he's been searching for. And if it means forcing the young man to confront the past that nearly destroyed him, then so be it.

Only the last thing Hawke expects to feel is something besides the hatred that has driven him. And he definitely never expected to feel it for a man.

But when it comes down to choosing between the unwanted feelings Tate stirs in him and the revenge he's finally close enough to taste, will Hawke be able to give up the one thing that has kept him going for a second chance at a future he gave up on ever having?

    Any additional comments?

    I love Sloane Kennedy's books and I love Joel Leslie narration. So when they come together again it just makes me happy. I love how Joel makes the already amazing characters come alive. He bring so much more depth into these great characters that my mind wasn't able to get at first. If you haven't start listening to these audiobooks the you need to get them.

    "Superb Perfection"

    I absolutely love Sloane Kennedy, her ability to take me into a story and make me feel... everything that her characters do is an amazing emotional journey. I really loved this story and it was great getting to know Tate and Hawke on a deeper level.
    This is actually the first narrated book I have ever listened to and it was fantastic! I really enjoyed Joel Leslie's narration and how he brought a depth and life to the story that you just don't get when you read it yourself.
    I definitely recommend giving this a listen to because you will definitely love it like I did!

    "So much better than just reading it!"

    Wowza! So much feeling and emotion in hearing the book as opposed to just reading it. I loved it then and I love it now even more! I can't believe how much this narrator got to me! I totally felt it. Amazing job on both their parts!

    "Loved it"

    I initially read this book when it first came out but hearing it made it so much better. I was able to feel the connections and emotions between the characters which is not something I can usually get just from reading alone. There are a couple spots where the narrator changed words but this is not an issue for me. I cannot wait until the next in the series comes out.

    "I love...."

    I have read Retribution as soon as it went live on Amazon. But there is something about a audio book that let's me experience the story in a whole new way. While staying with my dad in hospice I've had lots of time on hand ! Listening to Hawke , Tate and Matty I was able to connect in a whole new way! This is a must buy even if you already own the book because sometimes life gets hard and we all need to unplug , relax and forget for a while. Sloane Kennedy will keep you on the edge of your seat so keep tissues handy!

    "Sloane Kennedy, A True Talent!!"

    This is one of my favourite Sloane Kennedy books. Joel Leslie did an ok job, I didn't find his performance as good in this book as he did in Salvation. His voice is a hit or miss for me and this time around it was a miss. I loved the story and characters especially little Matty, he's just too adorable. Don't miss this incredibly amazing story!

    "Retributionis brilliant"

    I was given a free copy for a honest review but I've already brought and read the previous books and listened to them I would of definitely brought this. If you have read the books , you know how Sloane brings the characters to life and your living their lives through her but now through audible and Joel Leslie you land up feeling your sitting in the same room as them . I will definitely be keep buying these on audible even though I've got all her books.

    "Perfect Narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I already loved Hawke, Tate and Matty on paper but the narration brought them to life and don't get me started on the different voices Joel Leslie used on different characters, superb!!!


    What other book might you compare Retribution to, and why?

    Broken Pieces, the use of different voices when different characters are talking, I love that


    What about Joel Leslie’s performance did you like?

    He brought the emotions by the characters out so well and made me fall in love with them all over again
