Always Red by Isabelle Ronin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received this free eARC novel from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.
The moment Red realized that she may have pushed Caleb too far and he may disappear forever, Red realized her mistake: she wants him. She wants to be with him. She doesn't want him to walk away. But now, it's not Caleb fighting for Red, but the other way around. Because Red pushed him away one too many times and said cruel things to protect her heart, but not realizing that she was breaking his heart instead.
So now Red is on a mission: get Caleb back. She can't live without him and she is determined to make him understand that she needs him and will do anything for him now. The first few times she attempted to find him, he was gone. Nowhere to be found. Then, when Caleb finally came back, Red was looking at a stranger. He was so emotionless and distant.
But Red was not to be taken off course and she was going to make him listen to her - once everyone in their lives stopped interfering. Especially that good for nothing Beatrice-Rose. She was also determined to get Caleb - but she was missing one thing: Caleb never loved her like he loved Red.
Emotions are running high, friends are mistaken as enemies and time may be running out for them. Danger is lurking in the most unusual person of their lives and Red and Caleb's connection is stronger than ever. But is it stronger than the forces that are trying to tear them apart?
This ending was amazing. Seriously. I could have had all of this content into one massive book and I would have been a happy camper. But why am I complaining, since I got both book 1 and 2 at the same time with no waiting period, so it really was one big book for me! :)
I love these characters, I love this story, I love the backstory and how it wrapped up in the end, I loved how fast pace these two characters are with one another. I just love this. Thank you Isabelle Ronin for writing this great novel! I may just have to buy the physical book when it gets released in September & November!
The suspense with the side characters was great. It was obvious, but it was supposed to be and then the finale? Wowzas. I don't want to get on Red's bad side AT ALL!!
And neither on Caleb's bad side either, to be honest. They are both a force to be reckoned with and they are soulmates.
I feel so much for Red. I know Caleb has had some bumps in the road with his dad, but it is nothing compared to what Red went through when she was a kid and they were living with her father. I'm glad the author didn't get into too much detail about what happened and how she was abused, but the flashbacks were enough to show that he was an evil, evil man.
I loved the ending of this book so much and I just heart everything about this! I even liked Damon (I especially love his name!) and always felt so bad when Caleb was threatening his life. I hope Damon finds his one true love soon! And I really want Theo and Beth to get their shit figured out and be together already. Oh, and don't get me started on Kara and Cameron!! Their story is the one I want to read about the most out of anyone! I do hope the author is going to do spin off stories?!?! :D
I'm so so so glad that I downloaded these two books on a whim and read them right away!! It is such a great story and it was written beautifully. I devoured Caleb and Red's story like a girl needing her next fix and I regret nothing.
I am definitely recommending this novel to all of my friend.
Thank you to all of the Wattpad readers who read this and made this possible to be a book because it definitely deserves it!
