Ryker Knight has spent the last five years consumed with guilt, running from the ghosts that haunt him. That is until his past catches up with him the moment his brother needs his help. Returning home to Jasper Bay, he’s forced to face the same ghosts he was running from. Only to find that the woman he loved is trapped in a hell of her own, entrenched behind enemy lines —and it’s all his fault. And even though Ryker’s life comes with priorities that he can’t – and won’t - turn his back on, he refuses to leave Jasper Bay until he’s found Faith. But will she want to return to the life she’s always wanted even if Ryker is no longer capable of giving her what he once promised?
We learned in Point of Return that Ryker and Faith had a history together. We now know what happened between them, why Cain has her and why Cain kept Faith's mom hooked on drugs.
Faiths's mother may have given birth to her but she was NEVER her mom. And five years ago, Ryker just leaves one night without a word. It was the same night that Faith's life changes and it's certainly not for the better. So because of her being abandoned by the two people that she should've been able to depend on, Faith lives in brutal misery for those five years.
I have to say that she is one heck of a female lead character. Just the hope of her mother, maybe, coming to her senses and see the error of her ways, keeps her going day to day. Faith wants mommy dearest to even acknowledge what she does for her. If she doesn't do the things she does, the drugs would go away. She's wasting away before Faith's eyes everyday.
Now Ryker. Ohmygawd, I loved him from the get go! He's lived with a lot of guilt. Choices he's made has caused lots of damage, even though he isn't completely at fault. And he made a promise to a friend that he doesn't want to break. However, all that changes when he finds out what really happened to Faith the night he left town. Now he has to figure out how to repair all the damage that's been done.
There is obviously lots to happen in this book. And only a couple places I felt slowed down the action. But, once I reached a certain point in the book, I had a very hard time putting it down! Some parts are brutal, and others are so beautiful that I wasn't for the chapter to end. Like book one, we get both POV's and I was glad to be in their heads. I am already looking forward to the next in the series. The ending left me quite curious of what's to come. When it's all said and done, I'm giving Point of Redemption 4.5 stars!
