Redemption Lane by Rachel Blaufeld

Sometimes the past bleeds into the future.

Bess, a wild party girl running from herself, literally falls victim to her demons when she collapses in the most unexpected of places.
Lane, a tightly wound, up-and-coming CEO who can’t seem to stop enabling his brother, doesn’t know what hit him when Bess falls at his feet and into his life.

It was a night she doesn’t remember, and one he can’t forget.

But rather than stay and help the needy college coed, Lane decides to teach his brother a long overdue lesson––a decision that later comes back to haunt him and only adds fury to the transgressions of his past he is already fleeing from.
Years later, Bess and Lane meet again. She doesn’t know him, and he doesn’t share that he knows what happened on that ill-fated night when she almost died. After all, he has a web of complicated lies from his own youth to protect.

Both are seeking salvation in the arms of others and ignoring the truth—that the only road to redemption lies in confronting your past.

When the past and present collide, is there any chance at redemption?

Another hit series for Rachel Blaufeld. I instantly feel for both Bess and Lane and the  struggles they were holding onto in their pasts. 

Bess was the party girl who lost herself to drugs, alcohol and men. Lane was the brother trying to keep his brother out of trouble, only digging a deeper hole for the two of them. Lane was at the right place and right time to save Bess. But when he put her into an ambulance to fend for herself, the guilt was eating away at him, even years later.

Bess has no clue that Lane was the one who saved her that fateful night. So when he shows back up in her life, she feels a connection but has no clue as to what it is or most importantly why.

Lane and Bess are emotional and raw. You feel their pain, their fears, their joys and sorrows. Rachel makes you feel every feel in the best possible way, giving you a full on experience leaving you wanting more.

5 stars

Rachel Blaufeld is a social worker/entrepreneur/blogger turned author. Fearless about sharing her opinion, Rachel captured the ear of stay-at-home and working moms on her blog, BacknGrooveMom, chronicling her adventures in parenting tweens and inventing a product, often at the same time. She has also blogged for The Huffington Post, Modern Mom, and StartupNation.

Turning her focus on her sometimes wild-and-crazy creative side, it only took Rachel two decades to do exactly what she wanted to do—write a fiction novel. Now she spends way too many hours in local coffee shops plotting her ideas. Her tales may all come with a side of angst and naughtiness, but end lusciously.

Rachel lives around the corner from her childhood home in Pennsylvania with her family and two dogs. Her obsessions include running, coffee, icing-filled doughnuts, antiheroes, and mighty fine epilogues.
