#REVIEW: Resisting Redemption by Bonnie Paulson


This is the third book in a series where the plot points carry over. All plot points will be resolved by book FIVE - the end of the series. This is a sweet style romance. With her heart at war with her mind, Lisa’s need to chase dangerous fun over boring responsibilities tugs at her emotions. Love is the last thing she expects to find, especially with her past revolting against her future. The only love Ryan’s heart has room for is for his motherless son. But, when he finds himself yearning for Lisa, Ryan has to convince himself and her that he’s all the thrill she’ll ever need. Will Lisa’s past destroy their future before either of them can accept the true meaning of love?


MY REVIEW: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I've been pretty obsessed with Lisa since book 2. What would make her so high and mighty, so defensive, so prickly? We finally get her story, and it is to be expected that it is a patient's family member that she falls for. That was pretty much a no-brainer. She is running from her past as one of the daughters of this huge Midwestern gang leader, even if, as a child, she did do anything to get his approval. She knows her parentage, it's not a surprise to her.
In this book, she develops into a more likable character towards the end of the book, she even becomes a little lovable.She works with a child with spina bifida, helping him to get out of the wheelchair and walk on his on with the assistance of a walker. I don't know much about spina bifida, so I don't know how realistic it is for a child with it to walk unaided in the woods, but perhaps it is a reflection of the child's strength of character and stubbornness as well as her abilities as a therapist.
I have enjoyed reading and watching Lisa develop as a character and the book kept me reading from the very beginning.

Bonnie has discovered a dark and twisty turn in her writing that she hopes you enjoy as much as she has enjoyed uncovering it. Dirt biking with her family in the Northwest keeps her sane. Follow on:
