I jumped at the opportunity to review Enforcer’s Redemption not knowing it was the fourth book in the Redwood Pack series. So I went back and got the first three books after I couldn’t understand the conflict and who was who when I started. Unfortunately, the series hasn’t been all that great for me. I post reviews for books one and two, but book three I barely skimmed. So I jumped into Enforcer’s Redemption, not expecting it to be much better. While I still had problems, it was the better of the three books before it.

Through the first books in the series we find Adam Jamenson basically just surviving. He is just shy of 100 years old, but lost his mate and child while she was pregnant. She was kidnapped by the Central pack, beaten, tortured and raped. Now two decades later he still is the enforcer, but he seems to lack focus at time as he is still living in the past.

Bay Milton is a werewolf with a secret. Now on the run, she heads to the Redwood Pack to seek protection for her and her unborn child. One night of passion with Adam has left her with child, but a child she adores completely. But her secrets bring on more pain and still more attacks from the Centrals and the demon they called forth from Hell.

If you have read any of the series you know that werewolves can’t get each other pregnant unless they mate. So for Bay to be carrying Adam’s baby, they both must have mated. But Adam is in denial for the majority of the book. He is often brutal with his lack of caring of both the mother and the unborn baby. While they come to an agreement to live together and for Adam to protect her, you just don’t feel the great passion that runs between then. They do make out a lot so you know there is something there.

And to top off everything Bay is hiding a secret from the pack that does cause them problems. These same problems are in each book. The Centrals keep invading the Redwood Pack and killing, kidnapping and creating all kinds of problems and the Redwood Pack basically does nothing. Oh, they do go after the kidnapped people, but they never exact revenge or go after the Central pack to put them in their place. Yes, there is a demon involved. The demon is a pretty bad guy, but the story development leaves me cold to how weak I find the Redwood Pack to be.

Towards the end of the book, deep emotions do pour forth that redeemed the book to me somewhat. There is one particular part I did not like and that is totally a personal preference. But again we leave the series with the Redwood’s on the defense, sitting at home waiting for the next attack trying to figure out how to protect themselves. Until someone plants their foot up the Central’s rear end, I think this series could go on indefinitely or until the Redwood pack is finally defeated and extinct.

So while I found this book to be the best in the series, I think I am done trying to justify my feelings on it and won’t be continuing to the bitter end.

About Carrie Ann Ryan

USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

I get so irritated when characters in books are in denial. ;D
