Saint Squad #11
Gage Stewart has spent five years trying to overcome his past. Once an abused and troubled teenager, he has worked tirelessly to move beyond the fateful day he was manipulated into holding a group of teenagers hostage. Now, with a new identity and a college degree in criminal psychology, he accepts an unlikely job teaching others what to do during mass shootings.
At the hotel where his class is held, Gage is immediately drawn to Skyler Prescott, the daughter of the wealthy hotel owner. Gage and Skyler quickly discover a shared desire for normalcy, and their easy friendship soon develops into something more. But after a night out ends in horror when a gunman opens fire in the crowded venue, they make an alarming discovery that threatens more than their relationship. The attack was little more than a publicity stunt to draw out the real target: presidential candidate Senator James Whitmore. Unwilling to become someone’s scapegoat, Gage must now work in tandem with the very men who ended his own life of crime before it began—the Saint Squad.

This was a fun suspenseful read. I really enjoyed “An Unlikely Pair” from Traci Hunter Abramson and I know she has a lot of books. It was intimidating to not know where to start or if it needed to be read in order. “Redemption” is book 11 in a well established series and I wasn’t sure if I would be lost in characters and past plots, while I could see reading it in order could be beneficial, I had no problem being thrown into this world right in the middle.
And thrown in you get! The beginning starts out with action right away that I wasn’t expecting. It could be triggering for some who have issues with school shootings.
I liked how it had multiple POV and how you could see the assassins POV too and how it would eventually collide and go down. I liked the family aspect and how they invited others into their family. The Navy Seals were a little gruff on the outside to Gage but it makes complete sense that they’re so protective.
Can’t wait to read more in the series to see the other character’s stories. I received a e-arc copy from Net Galley and the publisher, these are my own thoughts and opinions.
