~*BLOG TOUR*~ Deviant & Redemption by Jaimie Roberts


***Warning: Contains strong language, violence and scenes of an explicit nature***

Most fairy tales end with a happily ever after.

This is not a fairy tale. He is not her Prince Charming about to whisk her away into the sunset. This is a story about betrayal, lust, desire and, ultimately, revenge...

And revenge can only lead to one thing.


He was my stranger, my visitor, my shadow in the corner of my room. He stalked me, watched me, knew everything about me. But all I could do was sit and wait. I waited for him to visit me night after night. He was becoming my addiction, my craving, my obsession. He knew every inch of me, but I knew nothing about him.

His calls himself Lotus and, as crazy as it sounds, I think I’m falling in love.


I wanted to take her, possess her, dominate her, and ruin her. I wanted to ravish her, please her, and consume her until I couldn’t take much more of her.

She will want me to kiss her. She will want me to hold her all night so that she feels a connection with me. I would make it so that she would seek me out in the dark. The one that satisfies her ultimate fantasy. A stranger who sneaks into her room. Someone who gives her the ultimate pleasure, but also seeks to give her ultimate pain. Pain she has never had to endure. Pain that will eat away at her until there is nothing left.

She was my nemesis, I was her lotus. And payback was a bitch.

How could anyone move on from a betrayal so devastating, it cut down to the bone and rooted itself deep within? You could never forgive such heartache…

Or could you?

From the moment Tyler was six, she fell in love with that cocky eight-year-old boy with the black spiky hair, captivating blues eyes, and scruffy uniform. From the moment he punched a boy for hurting her, Tyler knew there was no going back. They were always meant to be together...


Then everything changed. The stage was set like a tragic Shakespearean play, and Tyler’s and Dean’s world—as they knew it—had ended.

Or had it?


My name was Jessica now. I faked my own death, changed my identity, and moved thousands of miles across the ocean just to escape the one man I would never get out of my heart. I had a four-year-old son I adored more than anything in the world. On one fateful, horrific night, the life I knew disappeared in the blink of an eye. I left people behind. People I cared about. People I would never forget. People I loved.

But had I truly moved on?

No one said leaving behind the one man you had loved since you were six would be easy. I lived life day-to-day. I even met a man and tried to settle down. Evan was a man any woman would desire. So why could I not love him the way he obviously loved me? Why couldn’t I move past the dark-haired, blue-eyed boy who consumed my every thought? I may have left him, but he had never truly left me.

I could never love another man. Dean made sure of that the day he breezed into my life. I was only half a woman now. I had been broken and bruised by the one man I thought I could always love and trust. How could I let go of something like that? I suppose I just had to. I was just getting by with each day that passed. I was coping. I was managing, and that was keeping me from falling apart.

But then disaster struck again. And it was on that day…

Everything changed.


You can’t hide forever, Tyler. I will always be hunting you, always be searching, and will never give up. If there was ever one certainty in your life, it was that. You slipped through my fingers, not once but twice. You took my heart with you when you left me that day. No amount of alcohol, women, or punching bags would block you from my mind. You couldn’t be dead. I wouldn’t allow you to be dead. You’re out there somewhere. I must congratulate you that you had evaded me for this long. You always were a smart girl. How could I not have fallen in love with you? You did escape me this time, but I will find you, Tyler. I promise you that. And when that day comes…

I will finally make you MINE.

From childhood sweethearts to revengeful nemesis', this can only end one way....
Tyler O'Shea and Dean Scozzari were best friends when they were kids, Dean and his family left suddenly and never returned leaving Tyler heartbroken. As she grew older , thoughts of Dean always lingered but someone else took his place. A stranger. A stalker. 3 years of stalking and he finally appears, in the dark and hoody up. But he's never there to care for her, he's there for revenge.

At first I was a little dubious while reading this, I found myself confused. As the story started to unravel, I really didn't know what to think at all, I found it all strange, weird yet absolute genius! I found the way it was written fantastic, how it was portrayed; perfect. I really did enjoy it and was suckered in.

To readers debating whether to read this; read it with an open mind, persevere with it until the end. its truly amazing.

Aimed at audiences of 18+ with sexual content and violence not suitable for younger readers.


Redemption is not perfection. The redeemed must realize their imperfections.

After the devastation that ensued in Deviant, Dean carries on life like a lost puppy. Knowing full well what happened with Tyler; he will never give up....But Tyler has a secret, a secret she wants to keep safe from the dangers that surround Dean, dangers that follow his every footstep. Promising her the world one minute, and completely losing control the next; What will happen to these childhood sweetheart, who have massive secrets that need to be revealed? Will Dean's hidden secret destroy Tyler further? Or will she ultimately forgive him for his terrible mistakes?

I freakin' love this 2-part series!! I love that bother Alpha Male and Lioness Female have an equal part. There both as fiesty as each other. Having both an equal Alpha and Heroine makes the story all the more interesting. I'm glad this wasn't left on a cliffhanger and the story does conclude here, because I think my kindle would be in a million pieces if that happened! The story flowed perfectly. Jimmy and Dean's Bromance was hilarious; it really did make me chuckle. I nearly cried in this one, I really did. Also, this is a frustrating story of two very stubborn people.

I can NOT wait to read more from this author!

Aimed at audiences of 18+ with sexual content and graphic violence no suitable for a younger audience!
