Review: Rock Redemption

Rock Redemption (Rock Kiss, #3)Rock Redemption by Nalini Singh

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kit, Noah may seem like he is worth it but he has so much he needs to get over. This series is interesting because of how Ms. Singh picks the characters for a story. Or perhaps, the stories are based on which characters yell the loudest in her head. Kit Devigny is a woman who was born with a silver spoon in her mouth due to her famous parents. Rather than be spoiled and using influential people who her parents know, she makes a name for herself by working hard and on her own merits. It's not as if she is a poor little rich girl either. Her parents love her. For Kit, her parents are an ideal of how lovers should be. Even after all these years, they still love each other as if they just fell in love.

Kit is a character I really liked. She's smart and she is a hard worker. She's loyal and sometimes gives too much. Her love for Noah isn't wrong. What burns me is Noah and his stupidity. Noah is flawed and it's because of his past. It's not that he is not good enough for Kit. He doesn't treat her good enough. Some may argue but for me, Noah is abusive to Kit in ways that push my personal hot buttons. I didn't like him and after a while, I didn't care about his big secret angst. It's not hard to guess. Dragging out what happened to Noah when he was a child was too long for me. This plot device was overdone with a heavy hand. I felt no sympathy for Noah after a while because of how he treats Kit. At one point, I just wanted to slap him upside the head and say "get over it" or talk to someone. He knows there is a problem and he doesn't address it. This helplessness he exudes whilst lashing out at everyone and not making an effort to move forward is what bugs me about Noah. The way Noah "thinks" he can bury his problem is a joke. What drugs did he take make him think it was remotely a good idea? Nothing about his brand of "self-treatment" through one-night stands makes sense.

The slight suspense in this story and the character development is what makes this book good. Even if I did not like Noah, Kit and the rest of the supporting cast made the book a good read. The erotic parts to the story between Noah and Kit are sweet and tame. The chemistry between Kit and Noah is palpable and it is one redeeming factor for Noah. The predictable plot device which kicks Noah in his proverbial pants is a relief when it materializes. This story ends in a hard earned happily ever after. Recommended for romance lovers who love males that need to be fixed.
