Publisher's Summary

Sparks may fly in the bedroom, but fire always brings destruction.

Golden Beach firefighter, Lieutenant Michael Oliver, has everything he wants - a beautiful wife, a job he loves, and a future that finally looks bright after years of darkness. Until one day a surprise from his past shows up, throwing everything he'd finally recovered from back in his face.

Lena Shirakawa married the man of her dreams in an impulsive Vegas wedding. As a free-spirited and highly sought-after travel photographer, being the wife of a firefighter who wants her to settle down isn't easy. Especially when her job takes her all over the world for months at a time.

When Lena's deep-rooted fears take hold, the damage is done and divorce seems the only option. But Michael won't give up, even if it means risking everything to keep her.

    "Perfect narration!"

    Loved the storyline, loved the narration in duet.... almost makes us feel part of the book. Lena and Michael have such a beautiful strong story.

    "Holy Hotness"

    I've only been listening to audiobooks for the past 6 months or so, and a majority of what I listen to are books I've read. Redemption, and its author Kim Loraine are new to me. Now that my Golden Beach cherry has been popped I need to go back and read/listen to all of this amazing author's works. This story was so beautifully written, and one I could not stop listening to. It doesn't hurt that my favorite male narrator, Will M. Watt, read Michael's part to perfection. I never tire of Will's voice. Susan Fouche was amazing as Lena, making me feel every nuance of the character. Within the next few weeks I'll be breaking the bank on purchasing the rest of this series. Now, I will stay lost as I mourn the end of this terrific book.

    "Love these narrators!"

    Audiobooks are such a toss-up for me! The narrators make it or break an otherwise amazing book. This book is awesome and the narrators did such a great job! I wasn't annoyed by their voices :)

    "What a Love Story!"

    This was also my first introduction to Kim Loraine. It took about six months for me to finally get through my TBR list to get to Redemption and let me tell you, knowing there was six books in the series I knew I wasn't going to be able to stop at one! I'm already on my third Golden Beach Novel!

    Redemption introduces us to sexy firefighter Michael and amazing photographer Lena. Sparks fly right away for Michael, yet they are already there for Lena, remembering the one night they spent together in the past. Their chemistry becomes a whirlwind romance and as twist and turns are thrown their way, not only do they need to find their true-selves they also have to decide if their love is worth fighting for! Up until now I'd only ever heard Will Watt with an British accent, well is American accent is just as swoon worthy. Both narrators do an amazing job of bringing the story to life and letting you really feel the emotion. 5 out of 5 roses!

    "Such a Sweet Romance Series"

    I've enjoyed this entire series with the recurring characters and overall story arc that holds a bit of mystery. But this is the book I've been waiting for since these two characters were first introduced and the M-bomb was dropped. And their story was wonderful, absolutely honest to the personalities of the MCs. While the book spans a lengthy time period, each moment adds to the story. In audible, it's a true delight thanks to talented narrators and quality production.

    I review for the Guilty Indulgence Review Site.

    Which character – as performed by Will M. Watt and Susan Fouche – was your favorite?

    Micheal because honestly I love any character that Will does he is amazing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and not only listen once but twice.

    "Lena. Michael. Need I say more?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The duet narration is so easy on the ears, making the story that much more enjoyable.


    What other book might you compare Redemption to and why?

    I'd recommend the other books in Kim Loraine's Golden Beach series. It's like checking in on your favorite characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening scene is my favorite. I've read it over and over.
    Within minutes of listening to that scene you get to really know Lena and Michael's personalities.

    "Beautiful Story!"

    Redemption was a beautifully written story about Michael and Lena, and is book 5 in the Golden Beach series but can be read or listened to as a standalone. Michael is a firefighter, Lena is a local photographer, and they meet during the firefighter calendar shoot! Who doesn't love a hot fireman?!

    The author gives us a well written story that brings out all of the emotions. Michael and Lena have to contend with past loves, an absentee father, a love for travel, the longing for a family, and an arsonist! Will their relationship be able to stand the test of all the outside forces influencing them? I will definitely be reading the other books in the series to find out more about the other characters in this book.

    The narration from Will Watt and Susan Fouche was superb! Both of them were able to bring the emotions of this story to a whole new level with their voices!

    "Enjoyable listen"

    I was lucky enough to receive this book in return for an honest review direct from the author
    First off I would like to say how much I enjoyed the narrators they put a lot of feeling into their performance and held me throughout , this is the fifth book in the series but stood alone well and it's not necessary to have read/listen to the previous books but I will be going back to start from the beginning


    I was happy and sad and I had to keep the earbuds in to find out how things were going to turn out. This is story of Michael Oliver, a firefighter,and Lena Shirakaw a photographer meet and marry fast and Then really need to get to know each other there are many twists and turns that happen to this couple, you cannot help but feel for both of them. I don't want to give anything of the story away, but the two together are explosive and apart are gut-wrenching. the supporting cast are characters from books I have yet to read but I have to say they all sound interesting so look forward to listening to there stories ?

    Thanks for a good listen
