Hot Redemption by K.D. Penn Tour

Title: Hot Redemption
Author: K.D. Penn (pseudonym for Kenya Wright and D.T. Dyllin)
Genre: Cyberpunk Erotic Romance
Publisher: Dragonfairy Press
Expected publication: July 2013

Epic and his brothers don’t rob strip clubs for fun or fame, but to use the electric currency to take care of their family. With androids and robots flooding the job market, it’s almost impossible for humans to find work. Besides, stealing comes easy to the gang, until Phoenix steps into their lives, snatching away their bounty and fogging up Epic’s mind with her seductive scent.

Shots blare. A chase ensues. Both sides refuse to yield. And the small compromise that comes is brought by chains and a promise for a bigger hit—on a planet far away from earth.

Can Epic and Phoenix work together to rescue themselves from poverty?

Or will they find another type of redemption, one lathered in lust and warmth, pleasure, and the type of undemanding love that no human can live without?
HOTTTTT, is the perfect thing to put in this title!
Hot Redemption is/was so much more than what i expected, not normally a fan of sci-fi type novels i was apprehensive on how i would like this book to my norms.
It exceeded my expectations!

You follow the story of Epic, his family and an independent woman named Pheonix. 

Epic and Nix are damaged souls attempting to make their way around the planets with their heads above water and their hearts in tact. Each with their own past that shapes who they've become, the story follows their present and where their future will take them.

K.D. Penn combined put together such an inspiring story on love, lost, addiction, fear and the thin line between right and wrong.

Learning about the family, triplets, Shades rod and an over protected sister, you cant help but want more.

I enjoyed Epic and Nix, they have a very love and hate relationship. My heart constantly goes out to Epic as the head of the family and brains behind "family business", he was never given the chance to be a kid and enjoy life. Maybe because i understand that world or because KD Penn wrote such a descriptive view for readers to enjoy.

From the first chapter to the last you have chemistry, action, love and a whole lot of sarcasm! lol my favorite combination!

I give Hot Redemption by K.D. Penn

K.D. Penn is a pseudonym for the writing team of Kenya Wright and D.T. Dyllin. Or to make it simpler for you…

Kenya Wright always knew she would be famous since the ripe old age of six when she sang the Michael Jackson thriller song in her bathroom mirror. She has tried her hand at many things from enlisting in the Navy for six years as a Persian-Farsi linguist to being a nude model at an art university.

However, writing has been the only constant love in her life. Will she succeed? Of course.

For she has been coined The Urban Fantasy Queen, the Super Iconic Writer of this Age, The Lyrical Genius of Our Generation. Granted, these are all terms coined by her, within the private walls of her bathroom as she still sings the Michael Jackson thriller song.

Kenya Wright currently resides in Miami (yippie fellow Miami girllie!!!) with her three amazing, overactive children, a
supportive, gorgeous husband, and three cool black cats that refuse to stop sleeping on Kenya’s head at night.

Cynical-Optimist. Chocolate-holic. Sarcasm Addict. Paranormal Believer. Self-Imposed Insomniac. Sci-Fi Geek. Animal Lover. Writer…are just a few words to describe D.T. Dyllin. She was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and now lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and two very spoiled GSDs.

I'm Dawn. I co-wrote a two books(Chase and Kade) with fellow author Chantal Fernando, in the Resisting Love. We went solo on three of the books, she wrote Ryder, and she is writing James, and I'm writing Derek.
Also working on a book currently with my friend Isabella Bearden, called A Second Chance!
AND I'm currently writing a book with good friend Emily Minton called Whiskey Lullaby.
I drink too much, Swear too much, and Read too much. Yes I read too much. I don't have a filter, and I tend to speak before I think.
I'm a beta reader for many authors, I'm on a few authors ARC list, because apparently I'm THAT awesome. ;) And I also Edit. Not a professional, but I do help a few with that.
I have two children, 5&2, and have another on the way. They bug the shit outta me, but hey, that's what kids are supposed to do. ;) Married since 2007. He's amazing, but he's also a bigger pain in my ass than my kids are.
I love to read. and I love being able to write stories that *I* want to read!
I couldn't do this without the help of some very special friends!

Stubborn Love by Wendy Owens

Title: Stubborn love
Author: Wendy Owens
Genre: NA Contemporary romance

Even a broken heart has trouble resisting a Stubborn Love.

Emmie Hayes loved the beautiful Ashton Stirling deeply; nobody could deny that. She had given him her youth, and all he gave in return was misery and pain. She was ready for a new beginning, but Ashton wasn’t about to let her go so easily, even if it meant destroying both their lives in the process.

Three years later Emmie convinces herself she is ready to leave all of that heartbreak in the past and find a little piece of normal for herself. She heads to New York City to pick up where she left off, determined to finish art school. Emmie is determined to focus on school and not let anything distract her, but life has a way of throwing curveballs.

Paige, Emmie’s new roommate, brings Colin Bennett into her life. His smoldering eyes and lean muscular body are difficult for any girl to ignore. Only thing is, Emmie isn’t any girl. Her past makes her resistant to his charms. Colin isn’t one to give up easily, and just when he thinks he may have found a way to her stubborn heart, her tragic history may have found a way to tear them apart.
Whoa, Wendy Owens brought a different game to my reading world with Stubborn Love!
Im not lying when i say she had me at the Prologue. Emmie Hayes is my sister, my friend and in some cases myself. Its a view on the inside of a torn sole. With physical and mental abuse it starts slowly and when you find the strength to leave, its only the beginning of the healing of those scars. 
As Emmie finds her way to New York, art school and a new journey. Small town girl meeting the big city is almost always an eye opener, the grind, sarcasm and thick skin of New York is nothing compared to Colin Bennett.

Emmie has no choice but to face her demons, the question can Colin make it through this journey?

I loved this book, sucked in from the first word, and excited for part two in this series.
