Redemption Kindle Edition
I tried to convince her to run from me.
I tried everything I knew to make her despise me, but she never faltered, pushing back at every turn.
Mason Maxwell resigned himself to a life of loneliness, forced into a world he didn’t want in order to save his sister, the only living family he had left. And while his life was desolate, it was simple. Until he met her.
Taking care of her sick mother, Lila Stone found herself unemployed. Again. But a chance encounter with a stranger presented the perfect opportunity. Her single reservation… her new boss.
He’s arrogant and rude.
And he’s hiding a dark secret.
Will Lila live by his rules and finally unravel the mystery that is Mason Maxwell?

“Redemption” is one of those novels where you’re not a fan of the actual story and the events taking place (at the beginning), but then end up really liking the last half. Well, that’s how it was for me. It’s your typical love story of two beautiful people from two different worlds, both broken (how I really, really hate that word). Lila, a good daughter who works at whatever job(s) in order to pay for all her mother’s medical expenses, and Mason being so filthy rich (what? you thought he’d be poor? are they ever?), trying to exude the alpha in him by degrading, humiliating and controlling her, always with the threat of losing her job if she doesn’t acquiesce.
"When the bathroom door swung open, I actually had to take a step back. The uniform I had given her was more of sexy maid’s outfit, not a real uniform at all. The skirt was barely covering her satin panties and even though she was still wearing her bra, her breasts were on full display, causing my breath to catch in my throat. I had never in a million years thought she would actually go ahead with it, but seeing her standing in front of me, practically naked, I knew she was more than I’d bargained for. But I couldn’t let her know it, so I went right back into d**k-mode. “What do you think?”
“Why are you doing this to me? What do you get out of humiliating me?”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. It’s the required outfit, and if you don’t like it, then leave.””
““As you know, Lila, this is a very large house and it requires a lot of upkeep. And as such, I am going to need you to…” My words were cut off as I finished my drink. “… move in here while you’re employed under my services. This is now a live-in maid position.””
““I wanted to give you a list of rules you’re to follow while you're in my employment. It’s short, but I reserve the right to add to it at any time.”
“There will be no unapproved visitors. You will receive a key to the house, but if you lose this key, you will not receive another. If this happens, you will have to work around my schedule in order for you to leave the house and come back again. You will have your own private quarters, equipped with your own bathroom.” She stopped quickly and took a breath before reading the last rule. “There will be a curfew of eight o’clock, to which you must be in the house for the night. You will work Monday through Friday, having both Saturday and Sunday off, but again, you will be in the house at eight o’clock.” She stopped abruptly after reading that and stared at me, mouth wide open. “You can’t be serious. I have a curfew? I’m not a child, Mr. Maxwell. You can’t make me follow this, especially on the weekends.”
“I can, and I will.””
Throughout it all they're both fighting the obvious attraction they have for one another and, of course, end up in bed together where they declare their love for one another.
While many readers will find Mason to be sexy because of his alpha traits, I’m not one of them. I thought he was an obnoxious a**hole. His excuse for all his demands is so she’ll quit her job, leave and then never be consumed with thoughts of her. I don’t think so. If anything, his demands fulfill his own twisted fantasies. But who’s worse? Him or her for going along with it all? At this point I was thinking of chucking it all in, but I kept at it. Surprise, surprise. The tone of the novel changed and it changed for the better as an actual story started to take place. We learn more about Mason, his job, his father, and the mysterious calls that have him leaving the house at all hours. Talk about a story that turns out to be quite intriguing that has now captured my full attention making me want to read each and every word. What can I say except I really enjoyed the last half. I’m not going to spoil it for you so I’ll leave it at that. Just know that the one-star rating I was originally going to give “Redemption” changed to a three-star rating. At least it got better, not worse.
Oh my Goddess!!!!
This Book rocked my soul!!
Such a wonderful, powerful read...
I laughed, cried, growled...
I read the last 35% of this while sitting at Maccas having breakfast, I got to a disturbing part and thought I was saying..
NO!! NO!! NO!!
To myself in my thoughts, until the elderly gentleman at the table next to me asked if I was okay!!
I love it when I get so entranced by a story..
This is an awesome read and I am truly glad that I paid for it as the author deserves every cent for this incredible read..
I want a Mason of my own!!!!
Oh wait I have got one..
I totally recommend this book to anyone who is over 18 and live a good solid read!!!
Thank you S Nelson for putting such amazing words onto paper!!
I am a huge fan of S Nelson work – I love her style of writing and her story plots have twists and many “oh my word, did not see that one coming” moments. This story was great with some giggling moments, the maid’s uniform being one. This is the story of Lila and Mason. Lila take a job as a maid at Mason house, to assist her mother who is dying of cancer. Mason is dark and broody. Mason tries hard to keep away from his attraction to Lila and by doing so, sends to many mixed signals. This book does touch on taboo subjects such as human trafficking and abuse. However this book is a love story of note and one that I truly enjoyed. Would I recommend it? Yes, most definitely.
Please be warned that it does touch on some touchy subjects such as Human traffacking, abuse etc

However, as we delve into the secrets Mason keeps, will it endanger Lila or will he be able to protect her from it all?!? Such a well written book, loved the characters and storyline and even the darker elements really made it feel more realistic but also brought more emotion to the surface. Anything by S Nelson is a must read book in my opinion and I never hesitate to one click anything she writes!
