Synopsis

Easton Wells has spent years burying his guilt by digging up some of the world’s most renowned treasures while surviving the dangerous terrains in which they’re located—all captured for television. When his producers threaten to axe the show, he has no choice but to turn to the last person he still trusts—the girl he left behind.

Rain Walker has made a name for herself documenting wild and endangered animals, and the last voice she expects to hear while shooting in South Africa is Easton’s. He’s more gorgeous than she remembers, but the pain in her heart is as fresh as ever. They’d once planned on spending the rest of their lives together, but after her father’s tragic death while on expedition in Israel with him, Easton bailed on their future together without an explanation. It’s been nine years, and yet the intense love they shared seems only a moment ago.

When he asks her to film his latest treasure hunt, Rain wants to turn him down instantly. But when he explains it’s to the same cave that swallowed her father, she can’t say no. She wants to experience the last place her father was alive, and she’s beyond curious about what happened to the boy she used to love.

They’ve got two weeks to locate a treasure that’s been lost for centuries, or Easton will lose the one thing in his life he’s come to depend on. As their old passion is reignited—and dark secrets uncovered—they face the extreme terrain of the mountain range that threatens them at every turn. As more than the wildlife and sharp drop-offs tries to kill them, Rain starts to question if the legendary treasure they seek—the same one her father had died trying to unearth—is truly meant to be found, or if some things, including their feelings for each other, are better left buried.

My Review:

East of Redemption is the second book in author Molly Lee’s Love on the Edge series and the first in the series I’ve read.  After reading this book you can guarantee I will be diving right into the first book because I absolutely LOVED this book and Ms. Lee’s writing.  With two amazing characters, adventure, and tons of emotion, I was hooked from the very first page.

This book kicked off with an intense, pulse-pounding, and extremely emotional scene that immediately grabbed me and I knew this story was going to be unlike anything I’ve read.  This read like an Indiana Jones adventure with heated romance and intense emotions and it was spectacular.

Easton and Rain are two complex and wonderful characters with a shared love of the treasures the world has to offer.  With Easton, it was artifacts and history and with Rain it was the beauty in wildlife.  Their shared past gave them a connection that even tragedy couldn’t break.  Sure, it may have driven them apart for more than a few years, but the moment they were back together the connection they share was palpable and I wanted nothing but a happy ending for these two (I won’t give anything away, but I will tell you that Ms. Lee delivered one of the best endings I’ve read.  Talk about totally swoon-worthy!).  I loved both of these characters so much.  Easton broke my heart with the guilt he held over the years and how things had ended between him and Rain.  I loved his determination to excel in his field and to honor Rain and her family.  Rain was equally amazing with a tenacity I just adored.  She knows who she is and isn’t afraid to speak her mind, especially to Easton now that she has the chance! Together they are captivating, adventurous, loving, and very real. I loved reading as their connection mended and how their future together became brighter and brighter.

Oh, and the treasure hunting adventure these two are on added a fantastic layer to this story! It was intense and exciting and I felt like I was right alongside of them as they made their way through rough terrain, avoided dangerous animals, and dodged thieves looking to take their treasure.  It was an amazing ride from start to finish!

I’m so unbelievably thrilled I found this author.  Molly Lee holds the newest spot on my auto-buy list and I know you will all love her writing as much as I do.

Thank you, Ms. Lee, for a fantastic read! I can’t wait to see what’s in store next!
