Rectify (A Redemption Novel) by Marley Valentine

We weren’t just young, we were stupid and reckless.

He was the beginning of every bad decision I made, the enemy of everyone I’d ever loved.

I was a pawn in his game. A prize to be claimed, and a trophy to be flaunted.

Now we’re two adults with crooked pasts, trying to straighten out our future.

His heart belongs to his daughter, while mine is too tattered to give away.

Neither of us believe in happily ever after.

Not after everything we’ve been through.

So, why are we desperately trying to chase ours? We weren’t just young, we were stupid and reckless.

Marley Valentine is defo one of my consistent go-to authors. This was just recently re-edited so those of you that had read an early copy, give the gal a break. Edits have been corrected.

Even if you go an unedited version, gimme a break. This plot is to kill for. Marley always has the knack of writing a romance that is so ugly to so pretty. While these characters are the epitome of awkward dysfunctional family, and doesn’t always work, the stories always work by taking the very untraditional route.

Anyway. Rectify is Sasha’s story and I thought that was one character that would never come back from my metaphorical grave in my head. She did. Somehow. She may still have one foot in the grave for all the shit she pulled in the past. Okay, maybe one toe. But Sasha and Jay make it work. And somehow I kind of liked them.

So good. SOOOO good. Marley is absolutely brilliant with her plots.
