The Redemption of Roan (The Syndicate Series, #2) by Kathy Coopmans

Roan Diamond’s loyalty to the family may be obligated by blood, but nobody ever said he had to love them all, right?
As the next in line to head the Diamond dynasty, he has loose ends to take care of, and one of those is his brother Royal. Yet his plans for revenge fall apart the minute he lays eyes on Alina—Royal’s ex-girlfriend, who also happens to be the daughter of the rival Solokov family.
As a mafia princess, Alina Solokov knew it wouldn’t be easy when she made the decision ten years ago to leave the family for a new life at a college in England—but betrayal is often a dish served cold by those who you love the most. Now, back in the United States after a job offer that she couldn’t refuse, her new found strength is pushed to the limits when Royal returns to claim her for his own.
When the man who captures her heart amongst the chaos is front and center in a lifestyle she swore never to return to, can she hold her ground and fight being sucked back into the black hole that is the mafia underworld? Or will Roan’s love be worth the ultimate sacrifice?

The Redemption of Roan by Kathy Coopmans is the second book in her new series The Syndicate. In Cain and Calla's story in book one, The Wrath of Cain, we met Roan and, personally, I couldn't wait for his story. It is now a couple of years past the events that took place in book one and this is Roan's story. Roan Diamond and Alina Solokov. Both are children of mafia families. They shouldn't work... But they do. It takes a while for Roan to be able to fully work his charm on Alina but the spark between them ignites and the story takes off. Prepare yourself. It is intense and gritty. Royal, the hated brother EVERYONE is out to kill is a vindictive and manipulative man with no soul and stops at nothing to exact his revenge on those he thinks have done him wrong. Can't wait to read more and I hope Deidre's story is next.

This book had me from page one but so far every book by Kathy that I have read has gripped me from the beginning not letting go… When it comes to Mafia books Kathy is by far one of the best writers. After the Wrath of Cain I waited on pins and needles to get Roans story and I was not disappointed. Roan wants Alina who is the daughter of Solokov family and his brother’s ex-girlfriend. I freaking loved both these characters but Alina… ooh she is one strong B^!c# can I loved everything about her. Roan.. well he’s just HOT and I don’t just mean slightly I mean drop dead gorgeous, throw me over your shoulder please HOT!! But not only that, even though he is a Diamond hes a freaking sweetheart. I mean seriously he’s a bit scary, a lot hot, has a heart of gold, protective, a little controlling but all in good aspects, and he loves with his entire being!! What more can you ask for?? Just when you think you know what is going to happen in this book I am here to tell you YOU DO NOT!! You will be thrown for a loop while Roan and Alina find themselves together all while trying to find the psycho path Royal. Kathy how long do we have to wait for Beamer’s story? I need it after the way you left us with the tease at the end!!

5 star I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, betrayal, suspense, secrets, lies, twists & turns, and heartbreak. This story ends on a cliffy but not a relationship one. If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first The Wrath of Cain (The Syndicate, #1) This is Alina and Roan’s story. Roan wanted Alina from afar but she belonged to someone else. That is until one day she up and left. Now she has finished school and is back. He wants to understand why she left. When they become a couple and she finally tells him why she left he is furious. Can he keep her secret? Or will that secret be the downfall of the relationship? Will he be able to hold all the anger in or will it destroy him slowly? Is blood thicker than water? What happens when the secrets and lies finally come to light? Will they still have a love to fight for or will even that be destroyed? I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book.

Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars!! “That one word–spark, the beginning to a fire, a storm brewing, a desirable connection between two people..” What a great addition to the Syndicate series. The Redemption of Roan is told from dual points of view and is Roan and Alina’s story. Roan is the next in line to take over the family business, but before he can do that, he’s got one last, but very important loose end to tie up; he’s got to get revenge on his brother Royal. Sounds easy enough, right? It was a simple idea until he set eyes on Alina. Once he saw Alina, he knew that there was no way he could continue on with plan. He found himself impossibly drawn to Alina and was thirsting for a chance to get to know her…..Alina may be a mafia princess by title, but wants nothing to do with the life. She wants to help and heal people, not hurt them. She’s finally returned home after many years abroad, hoping to get a fresh start, but she will be pushed to the limits, when Royal returns to her life. There are things about her past that no one knows about. See Royal has hurt Alina in the worst way possible. And now, Alina has found herself an unlikely and unexpected ally that will finally get her some justice from the pain Royal has inflicted. The last thing Alina was prepared for, was to fall for Roan, Royal’s brother. Terrified of what she is getting herself into, Alina will quickly learn that Roan is nothing like his brother. He wants to worship and protect Alina, no matter the cost. And when Royal comes back and begins to bring havoc and chaos into their lives, they will find themselves tested in ways they didn’t think was possible….. The Redemption of Roan was a really great read. It was dark and intense and sexy. I was captivated by Roan from the moment I met him. I wanted to know more about him and loved his alpha personality. I loved how he was with Alina. At first, he wanted to use her to get to his brother, but then when he saw her for the first time, he knew that using her would be an impossibility. There was no way he could hurt her. In fact, he found himself needing her and wanting to protect her. I loved Alina and how strong her character was. She went through a very tough and intense experience and kept it to herself. She somehow managed to put it behind her, survive and create a life for herself. She had some reservations about Roan in the beginning, but I gotta tell you, I was so happy that she gave him a chance. The two them had some amazing chemistry and I just couldn’t wait to see where their story would go. The Redemption of Roan is fast paced and will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat, wondering what will happen next. The story-line and the characters are so intriguing. You’ll find yourself desperate to know more about the characters and their stories. Yes, this story is dark and pretty intense. It does deal with some serious and at times intense subject matter, but it was handled in a very respectful way. That being said, this story is not just a dark tale, it does have plenty of romance, sexy good times and swoon worthy moments. I enjoyed everything about this story from start to finish and as this story wraps up, we were given a little taste of what to expect when the next book comes out, and I gotta tell you, I can’t wait to see where the next story will go! *I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.*

This is the second book in The Syndicate Series, but can be read as a standalone without worry. As is Ms. Coopman's thing, there is no lack of steamy in this book! Very intense at times, fast-paced, with plenty of fervent intrigue, this is a must read, and even set aside for a reread! Plus, to see such an alpha male show his sensitive side, makes for us to see a deeper connection, and of course, passion between Roan and Allina.I recommend this book to eveyone who enjoys a dark, potent read.
