REDEEMED is the first book I’ve read from Ciana Stone and I was immediately impressed by the writing. From page one I was sucked into this world that Stone had created. With a take-no-shit heroine in Cia and a suspenseful mystery pulling the plot forward, I knew that REDEEMED would be a book I finished quickly.

While I enjoyed Cia’s quick comebacks and kickass attitude, I also felt that sometimes she came on too strong. Whenever Kade would try to coax something out of her, she hissed like a cat and unleashed her claws. This part was a little frustrating for me because for such a short book, you want the romance to be strong and I think Cia’s actions impeded that.

Also, I was in a for a shock because going into this book, I thought that this was an erotic suspense. We definitely get the sexy and the suspense side, but then the author threw me in for a loop with she added a slight paranormal element. I’m not quite sure how I felt about this. It added to the mystery that was Cia, but I guess it was just totally unexpected that I don’t really know how to take it.
On the flipside, Kade was a great guy. I just loved him, but I felt that in the beginning, everything happened so fast between Cia and Kade that you wish there was more character development. I wanted to know more about Kade.
Overall, this was a great introduction to a new voice for me. I’ll be on the lookout for more of Ciana’s work!

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
