JACKSON STILES: Road to Redemption by Jo Richardson #5StarReview #Giveaway #ContemporaryRomance #Suspense #series @TastyBookTours @JoFictionFreak

A lost soul and a seeker of truth travel down the road to redemption 
and discover more than they bargained for.

Road to Redemption #1
Jo Richardson
Released Sept 21st, 2016

Jackson Stiles is used to having bad days, but they’ve been especially bad since a certain tabloid reporter seems to have it out for him.

Emma Green doesn’t mean any harm. She simply sees it as her duty to report the misdeeds of certain Private Detectives who charge too much in a society where people need more superheroes and less villains; something even Jackson has convinced himself he deserves to be called, deep in his gut.

When the two of them realize they’re investigating the same suspicious circumstances, Emma makes Jackson an offer he only wishes he could refuse. But can the man who trusts no one allow the one woman he can’t stand help him get to the bottom of a murder he feels responsible for?

Exposed and unsure, these two unexpected allies come together to unmask the mysteries cloaked in plain sight while uncovering secrets within each other. A lost soul and a seeker of truth travel down the road to redemption and discover more than they bargained for.


Um, I'll take one Jackson Stiles to go. Please.  Ohhh-m'-gosh.  Yes peeps, I have a new Book Boyfriend.  Full of snark and sarcasm, this one has a mouth on him – and he can say all the wrong things in just the right way. He's a PI with an attitude, who rolls with grit, humor and pride in getting a job done right.  But don’t let any of that phase you because underneath it all, Jackson has a heart of gold.  He lives and breathes to clean up the streets of Redemption so when he comes across a case that seems more than a little hinky, well, he is like a dog with a bone. 

Of course, Jackson’s job would be easier if not for one Emma Green, tabloid reporter extraordinaire. He and the reader as well, get the feeling she has it in for him.  Of course, put the two of them together and they just about short out my Kindle, they have so much electricity and all-over-the-page chemistry.  Their witty repartee had me smiling, snorting, giggling and flat out laughing and I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!

How Jo Richardson managed to pack so much into one story I do not know.  It was fast paced and full of not only romance but mystery, drama and more!  Oh and the story is told from Jackson’s point of view... Kudos Jo.  I am always blown away when women can do such a great job writing from the male pov that I cannot decide if a man or woman wrote it.  Truly amazing.  I am so glad I read it.  Thank you Lisa at Tasty Blog Tours for introducing me to a fabulous book and author and thank you Jo for sharing your talents with us!  I LOVED IT!!

*****5 Stars*****

ARC provided in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

A movie fanatic, a writer of stories, a lover of life.

I grew up in Maryland with four siblings, three parents and an endless number of cousins within the vicinity – but it was too cold up North for this thin blooded girl. So today, I live in Florida with my two girls and a husband that shares my same sense of humor and basic take on life as we know it.
Life is too short to put dreams on the back burner.

I write both contemporary and paranormal stories that include mystery, suspense, humor, action, romance, and anything else I can think up.
