Once, the name Macalister Hale was uttered in the boardroom with respect. Now, it’s whispered in disgrace at cocktail parties hosted by Boston’s elite.
Scandal nearly destroyed me, but the one thing larger than my infamy is my bank account, and I’ve learned money can solve anything.
Sophia Alby’s preferred currency is secrets and the way she trades information puts Wall Street to shame.
This girl charges into my life and claims a partnership can restore my reputation. My downfall was swift, but with her, my climb to redemption will be greater.
Our arrangement is professional. Appropriate. It has to be, because she’s half my age. But it doesn’t stop me from wanting . . .
To move on. To control and indulge in her. To hear the name Macalister Hale echo in her breathy moans.
But I can’t. Giving in to temptation led to my undoing before, and I won’t survive it a second time.
That was freakin’ amazing. From the first chapter to the last...It was my first introduction to the series but I get why you all were waiting for Macallister. Hell would not be hot enough to describe him...he is absolutely spellbinding. The entire back story of his downfall and prison time frames him as a lonely, hated man. Enter Sophia, the girl with alot of secrets. The characters were incredible in depth and you will easily fall into the story swiping pages to get to the next twist. The age difference did not once occur to me to be inappropriate...it suited them both. But his redemption and rebuilding of himself comes from the red hot scenes with Sophia and her perseverance to win him. He never loses. No he surrendered in a masterpiece ending. This is a book I would read again it was that good. Thankyou for the incredible walk through Macallister’s redemption it is something not to be missed. 💜
Rich and Sensuous
The Redemption is book Four of the Filthy Rich Americans Series by Nikki Sloane and let me just say that this beauty is rich, sensuous, and leaves nothing to be desired! Ms Sloane delivers once again in The Redemption and the tone/ mood is so perfectly Macalister.
Told from a dual perspective we finally get insight into what makes Macalister tick. As for Sophia, she is absolutely perfect as a “woman on a mission”; said mission being to help the Phoenix (Macalister) rise from the ashes.
The characters are still entangled in the world of Cape Hill, an extremely affluent community just outside of Boston, yet its main player has come back a changed man.
Some readers may be delighted to know that this is an age-gap novel, Sophia is half Macalister’s age. And while you might not think Macalister will fall for another young woman, this story doesn’t carry that same tone. The urgency and turmoil readers felt in books one through three dramatically changes in book four. This is really and truly a book about Macalister’s redemption and atoning for his manipulative and sinister ways. Macalister wants his family name to be restored and to wipe the stain he created Leaving the Hale name tarnished so he knows a woman like Sophia is off limits. Yet their chemistry is off the charts hawt and the power exchange is so vastly different that you really do get a sense that Macalister has changed. Maybe not at the very beginning...
“… I was desperate to climb back onto my throne and rise above it, rather than play the game with everyone else.“
But in walks Sophia Alby to show Macalister how it’s done.
Macalister and Sophia make the PERFECT power couple, age gap aside. So how will Sophia win Macalister over knowing full well he doesn’t want to invite another scandal at his door?
Sophia presents Macalister with an arrangement to rebrand the fallen king’s image. A social butterfly, Sophia is a major influencer and promises to change Macalister’s image to reestablish his position at the top of Cape Hill’s elite. Not only that, but Sophia knows Cape Hill’s dirty little secrets and will use what she knows to help get Macalister back to his former glory as a changed man. And Sophia will attempt all this strictly in a professional capacity. Ha good luck! 😉
What does Sophia get in all this? Well, I guess you’ll just have to pick up the book and find out.
Sophia makes great strides with Macalister’s social makeover and every decision made by the blonde bombshell personal assistant humanizes the godlike stature of Macalister.
This is truly his redemption.
Expect this read to be a little different. Enjoy Macalister’s change in all the best of ways while still being the dominant sexy man he’s always been.
I loved this book so much! Hands down Macalister is my favourite character. And while I loved his scenes with Marist in books one through three, I love him even more now.
Standing ovation to Ms Sloane for keeping Macalister real and true to who he is while getting at the heart of what makes this man tick. His redemption is the best kind of sweet there is! ❤️
