Luke's Redemption by Anni Fife

Chased by her criminal kingpin father, Katya Dalca runs to New Orleans and straight into the arms of Luke Hunter. Sucked into the carnal world of the French Quarter, she succumbs to Luke's potent sexuality. He not only steals her breath, he steals her heart and the only leverage she has against her father. She is left with no choice except to pick up the pieces and rebuild her life alone.

Undercover DEA agent Luke Hunter thought his newest assignment--recover a stolen flash drive to gain the trust of the Russian mob--was like any other. But his target brings him to his knees, and after one taste of her intoxicating beauty, he's in too deep. Doing his job means walking away, leaving his heart behind with nothing but a promise to reunite. It's a promise he can't keep.

When Katya's past reaches out and her world unravels, her only hope is the one man she is most vulnerable to--Luke.

I really liked this fast-paced action packed read. Katya and Luke are both great characters with lots of chemistry and so much emotion. The story has plenty of drama and suspense and had me hooked from beginning to end. I really liked it.

Luke’s Redemption is the first book by Anni Fife and it’s also the beginning of her series called King Security. I have to say that for her first book, Anni Fife as scored a homerun. This book was both full of erotic heat and intense action . The characters were multidimensional and relatable. More importantly, although it was a work of fiction, nothing about it seemed over the top. Luke’s Redemption is the story of undercover DEA agent Luke Hunter and a criminal kingpin’s daughter named Katya Dalca. In order to retrieve a flash drive and infiltrate her father’s crew, Luke seduces Katya while she is hiding away in New Orleans. Their smoldering one night stand has life-changing consequences for both of them that plays out over the course of 6 years. Although Katya has no reason to trust him, Luke does everything he can to keep Katya safe and make up for his betrayal. Their connection to Katya’s father and other things cause a lot of collateral damage that gets in they way of them realizing that they are meant for each other. The drama that unfolds is mesmerizing and makes it hard to put the book down. The King Security team is impressive and add another layer to this bittersweet tale. Everything about Luke’s Redemption was fun and exciting. Although lives were constantly in danger, it was a great adrenaline rush. I was compelled to see this through to the end. Luke and Katya had a seductive chemistry that warmed the pages. More importantly, I felt like I truly got to know them both as well as the people that they trusted. Again, for a first book, I was impressed. I look forward to reading the next book. **Received a copy of the book from the author and reviewed voluntarily.**

After Katya learns of her kingpin father’s plan to not only force her into an arranged marriage, but to a man she ultimately despises, she knows she must get as far away as she can & fast! But before Katya leaves she must secure her future & safety. Since Katya is worried her father will come after her she takes a flash drive which details his criminal activity as an insurance policy. Luke is a sexy DEA Agent who is assigned to go undercover & retrieve the flash drive that Katya stole. In order to do so, he must get close to Katya. However, he gets too close & actually falls in love with her. There are fireworks between Luke and Katya! After a night of steamy passion you could totally feel the chemistry between these two characters! I liked Luke and Katya, but found them to be somewhat ridiculous. However, as far-fetched as their actions seemed, it’s also what made these characters realistic. I personally couldn’t forgive & forget as easily as Katya, but I am sure there are many women out there who would & have. Luke is HOT!! His sexiness definitely helps overlook some of his flaws – but he does come with baggage! Later in the book he does have some redeeming moments, which does help make up for the heartache he put Katya & I through – lol! But still for me, it’s a long road uphill for complete forgiveness. Sadly, I found Katya to be somewhat pathetic as she fondles over Luke & allows him to treat her like crap. There’s even one point where SHE feels guilty & sorry for him betraying her! But I guess I have never had that intense relationship with someone that I could look past no matter how they acted or treated me – where love was the only thing that mattered. Katya is betrayed by Luke not once, but TWICE!! His number would definitely be deleted out of my phone & I would not give him another chance! But Katya is in love & wants to be with Luke regardless. I know holding grudges is never the answer, but if someone broke my heart the way Luke did it would take me quite a while to just get over it. This book is well researched & thought out. There is extensive detail that makes it easy to picture – including the steamy scenes! The book’s pace is mostly steady, but does contain a few slower, dragging scenes throughout. This book also switches between multiple POVs – which wasn’t actually confusing, it was written well enough to easily follow & I liked hearing from the different perspectives. I also really liked the supporting characters – very interesting & entertaining! I am so looking forward to discovering more about the sexy King Security men! There were only a couple of things that I didn’t like in this book. I hated the long timeframe wait between the main characters. Five years just seemed a bit too drawn out. Also, I wish Katya hadn’t forgiven Luke so easily. He hurt her, he broke her heart, he used her, & so much more, & she just let him. Yes, I wanted these characters to get together, but I think Katya should have made Luke work for it a bit more. All in all, I really did enjoy reading this book! There is so much to this book! This book is full of excitement, action, mystery, suspense, crime, passion, betrayal, regret, heartache, forgiveness, love, secrets, second & third chances! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in a complex romantic suspense book filled with hot, steamy, passionate scenes! **Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.**
