September 4, 2018
Through every drop of blood I spilled, I lost a piece of my soul. I’ve sacrificed seven long years and the woman of my life for the Family. With prison behind me, I’m finally taking the reins of my destiny. I won’t allow the choices of my past to define my future. But I’m not done fighting—not yet.
Eve is still out there.
I will stop at nothing to get her back.
After having my heart torn out by the son of the biggest crime family in New York, I was forced to start over in California. With three thousand miles between me and my past, life is finally set on cruise control. I’m a lawyer at one of the best law firms in the country, I own my apartment, and I even have a doting boyfriend by my side.
As for love?
It’s not worth the fight.
*Redemption (Vincent and Eve Book 3) is the final book in the Vincent and Eve trilogy. You must read Rising (Vincent and Eve Book 1) and Reckoning (Vincent and Eve Book 2) in order to enjoy the conclusion of this heart-stopping romance.

***Spoiler alert – You must read Rising & Reckoning before reading this review***
“…now that I’m free, it’s time I redeem myself.”
The story of Vincent and Eve comes to a conclusion in Redemption. This trilogy is the debut for author Jessica Ruben and what a way to enter the literary world! She didn’t just step in, she crashed in, full force! Rising was heart stopping! It grabbed me from the first page and didn’t let go until I was jumping from a cliff! Reckoning gave me the biggest book hang-over! The emotions were flowing. The path that Vincent and Eve are heading toward…devastating! What will happen to Vincent and Eve?
At the conclusion of Reckoning, Vincent and Eve are separated. The wheels were set in motion as a chain of events is set off. A consequence of their love and circumstances. It was painful to see the path that has been chosen for both Vincent & Eve. Vincent was sent to prison. To ensure Eve’s safety, he sent her to California. Eve is so determined and strong willed that Vincent did what he must to ensure she would leave. He had hoped that Eve would live life for him. A life that she has fought desperately for. From New York’s toughest housing projects, the Blue Houses, to NYU and on to Stanford.
“All those promises we made when we were kids are just that, promises made between kids.”
But things don’t always turn out the way you planned. It has been seven years. Eve is a successful lawyer. But her heart is closed. She is controlled and closed off. Growing up poor has left her with a need to assess her value, her worth and her bank account – frequently – for assurance.
“I’m everything I wanted to become…yet more unfulfilled than ever.”
Once Vincent is released he realizes that the choices that led him to prison were impulsive and immature. Vincent wants his life to go in a new direction. However, it may not be that easy…
“Freedom, in the true sense of the word, will never belong to me – at least not so long as I represent the Borignone mafia.”
Vincent did not spend his time sitting idly while in prison. He worked on his dream. But his dream may be overshadowed by his last name.
“You will not escape your destiny. I choose who comes and goes. Who will live and who will die. Me.”
What can I say…I absolutely LOVED this series! The writing is fantastic. The story flows from book to book as life continues on. Uncertainty, turmoil, crime, angst, fear….it’s all there! My emotions were all over the place! I just loved the punch that this series delivered. There is nothing better than picking up a book and being wow’d! And you, Jessica Ruben, WOW me!!!! Can’t wait to see what you write next!
“I’m staring at nothing but darkness, farther from redemption than I ever was.”
