Book Review: Redeeming Kyle by Zoey Derrick

Redeeming Kyle (69 Bottles #3) by Zoey Derrick
Falling in love was the easy part…

For Talon Carver, the commanding and charismatic lead singer of the rock band 69 Bottles, life has never been better—or worse. His heart’s at a full 11 for Addison Beltrand, his feisty PR rep. But admitting it was a much different tune. The dilemma’s even more complicated when adding his other lover to the mix: Kyle Black, the band’s handsome, sweet and sexy manager.

Why ruin a good thing, right? Things are pretty damn perfect for the trio—in and out of bed. But just when they find their best rhythm with each other, a rocky night in Minneapolis forces all three to reexamine their feelings—and take their relationship to new levels.

But can love be enough? 

The band’s soaring popularity, along with the pressures of maintaining an unconventional relationship on a high-profile rock tour, start to take their toll. When Addison starts to fall apart, Talon and Kyle must come to terms with how important she is to them both. 

Can Addison find the strength to be their glue once more? 

What happens when the world goes on…but yours suddenly stops?

When everything looks like it’s going to fall apart? Is love enough to bring Talon, Kyle, and Addison back to each other’s arms…and with it, the magic that true redemption can bring?

My Review:
Just when things are going back to normal between the trio after Talon and Addison's fight in Minneapolis, a major surprise turns the trio's lives upside down. Suddenly it isn't just about them and what they want and ready or not nothing will be the same again.

As Addison, Talon, and Kyle navigate the changes coming at them one after another they must decide if they are in it for the long haul, or if they truly aren't mean to last forever. 

I liked Redeeming Kyle much better than Craving Talon in certain ways. The changes in the trio's lives wasn't unexpected, especially when the end of book two hinted at what was to come but I loved watching all three characters learn how to deal with their unexpected surprise and grow up a little more. 

I kind of wished at one point that Talon and Addison would ditch Kyle - because of how he was acting - and just become a twosome but I liked how the author smoothed everything out between them all, even if it wasn't realistic. The only things I didn't like about this book were the way it was written in certain places, almost like the author/narrator was telling the story as if you were gossiping to a friend. It just felt wrong to me, and I did notice sections like that in Craving Talon as well. Also, as the author does go on to write Dex and Raine and Mouse and Peacock's stories in the other three books in the series I hated that the author kind of fast-forwarded in the end telling not just what was happening in Kyle, Talon, and Addison's futures, but the other band members as well. It was kind of a spoiler in my opinion. It was almost like she just wanted to shove it all in at the end. 

Overall, I really liked not just Redeeming Kyle, but the trio's story as a whole, it was sexy and fun to read and I'm dying to read the whole story of how Raine and Dex get together in the next books. 

My Rating:
4.5 of 5 stars!
