Product Description

Product Description

For Jake Wrigley, the future is bleak. Some people are survivors, but he’s getting by on his bad-boy looks and charming smile. He owns a gym, gets into bar fights, and wrestles his demons with rough workouts—both in and out of the bedroom.
For Alyson Road, the future is bright. Life can only improve from where she grew up. She graduated at the top of her law class, cares for her ailing mom, and in her job, she defends those who can’t afford anyone else. Her work is thankless but honest.
Jake’s twin brother has been covering his ass for as long as they’ve been alive, but that all changes when Jake finds himself in front of the fiery public defender, his future in her hands. For the first time ever, he doesn’t want to involve his brother, finally realizing he needs to stand alone, be his own man.
Even if Jake’s never absolved of his past wrongdoings or his heart is never scrubbed of the blackness that resides there, he can do one good deed—protect the beautiful lawyer who touched his soul—until helping her nearly becomes his own undoing.

One broken path, one paved road...two people with virtually nothing in common but both needing to find that other person to be whole.
Jake, a man with so much anger, guilt and resentment. He didn't feel he deserved love or what to do with it if he ever got it.
Alyson, a woman so alone in the world who even though put on a strong face was so inscure and independent at the same time.
They met when Alyson has to go down to jail to be Jake's public defender. He can't get her out of his mind. "All of a sudden, my cock was raising to the occasion, and not for the birth of Jesus Christ."~ Jake.
I loved the buildup, I like it when the author doesn't rush the beginning of a relationship. It feels more authentic.
The storyline kept me on my toes, not wanting to put it down. I cried a few times (mind you I'm a softie) but many parts will tug on your heart strings. The ups and downs, highs and lows were are what made the book so good. Loved this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Btw....love Gin Blossoms and Allison Road, although I think they spelled it wrong ;)

HASH(0x9d358444) out of 5 stars a powerhouse like you have never experienced Nov. 29 2015
By Shadowplay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Absolution Road is an incredibly phenomenal journey of two intersecting lives whose collision sparks an unforgettable transformation that forever changes them both. Nothing in this story is done halfway. You willingly hand over your heart, or you will never make it far into this story. This is truly a magnificent piece of heart and soul that has been delicately wrapped and exquisitely handled in its delivery that needs to be read and enjoyed by anyone who wants to be moved and touched in a way like no other.

Alyson Road has reached and achieved her greatest goals in life, and she is very proud of herself. Her life is small but important to her. She is happy and content for the most part, but something still tugs at her heart that she just can’t put a name to. Looking outside of the safety of her well-constructed walls never crossed her mind until Jake Wrigley barrels into her neat life effectively toppling her fragile foundation. Jake is fiercely battling demons from his past, but when he meets Alyson, he knows she is more than just another woman. She brings a startling peace to his constant internal chaos, and his heart is twisted all up feeling things it never felt before. There is suddenly more he wants out of life, and it all starts with her. Will Jake and Alyson get the chance they deserve to explore their bewildering and intense connection, or will they lose everything before it even begins?

I was completely in awe as I watched these two beautifully breathtaking characters walk out of the comfort zone, grow, and transform into the person they were always meant to become. This journey was painful, joyful, and priceless, and neither would have traded it for anything in the world. Alyson and Jake reached into the other’s soul and brought hope and love that no one else could. They found and fit the missing pieces back together until they were both whole and healed. What they found at the end of their battlefield was peace, love, and more hope than they ever dared to dream possible. I loved everything about this beautiful couple!

Rachel Blaufeld has officially stolen my heart, and I am not sure that I want it back. Her writing is out of this world incredible infused with an unbelievable amount of heart and soul. She packed those pages until the heart of this story literally overflows in your own soul. There is not stopping a powerhouse like this story from overtaking you. You let it in, or it will blow you over. If you want a story with power and soul, look no further than this literary masterpiece.

HASH(0x9d3584d4) out of 5 stars 5 Stars.....Absolutely Beautiful Stars Nov. 13 2015
By Joselyn A Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
5 Stars, Just Beautiful

I read both books in this series over the past few days and I am now nursing a serious book hangover! What an emotional but oh so beautiful ride with these brothers!!!!

I couldn't wait to dive into Jake's story because my heart not only wanted but needed to know how Jake made out in life. Let me tell you, Jake's journey to self-discovery, self-forgiveness was absolutely moving, touching and amazingly beautiful in every way! I adored Jake in the first book, yes, he had his demons but underneath his tough exterior was a truly caring and loving man.

Jake meeting Aly was by pure coincidence and the phrase "everything happens for a reason" certainly pertained to this couple! I loved both Jake and Aly and no, it wasn't an easy road, as a matter of fact a very unexpected and tragic event transpires which tests both of their strengths within themselves and each other. I have to say, I was honestly on the edge of my seat for the majority of the read because I wasn't sure where or what Jake would do, lol, yeah I had a feeling he was going to self-destruct or just plain destruct whatever "good" came his way and oh boy, was I ever surprised with him. He totally proved me wrong and I was so damn glad that he did!

What a beautiful journey this book took me on and not just with Jake and Aly but OMG I got to see more of my girl crush, Bess and that oh so special Lane, Jake's brother. I loved James, too, he added THAT much more depth to this wonderful family and Ioved every minute!

The ending of this book and the place this family is at, I absolutely LOVED..... It was so worth the emotions I went through:)

Congrats yet again, Author Rachel Blaufeld, you are a truly brilliant writer and you never cease to amaze me. Your stories are written flawlessly and are so darn unique and that is why you are always under my "favorite" author list!!!! Thank you for a memorable series in which I will always remember these characters fondly!!!!!! Please never give up your talent for writing because it would crush me:)

HASH(0x9d35890c) out of 5 stars 5 ABSOLUTELY PERFECT STARS! Oct. 5 2015
By Katelyn- Book Hangover Page - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This review was hard for me to write, for a few different reasons. First, at the beginning of the book I was teetering between 4-4.5 stars and I hated that because I LOVE Rachel Blaufeld and all of her work. And the only reason I felt this way is because I hated how horribly Alyson saw herself. However, somewhere between the first quarter and the first half of the book it sky rocketed to 5 stars and literally left me craving and yearning for more.

Normally, I start with the heroine, but this time I’m starting with the hero, Jake. Holy smoking hotness, Jake. My heart hurt for him so much in the story, and I wished he was a real person I could hug and comfort.

“But I wasn’t whole. I had a past. A bad one.”

Jake has this hard, tough guy façade but inside, he was one amazingly soft and sweet human being. He was selfless and kind and he knew Alyson (Aly) was the one for him.

“My cheek prickled under her touch and my heart tumbled with emotion. Yes, my bad-ass black heart tumbled.” – SEE?! He. Is. Perfect. Imperfections and all.

Alyson Road—Aly—is a character that you love, but she’s also a character that drives you mad. I hated that she was so hard on herself. I totally understand why, but as a reader, I saw and felt her beauty written throughout the pages.

When something terrible happens to Aly, Jake’s world—and hers—is changed dramatically. I am not going to spoil ANYTHING, but let me just say, I was left in TEARS. I hated that this happened to them when they were just finding out that they BOTH deserved to be happy. Ugh, even just writing about it, shatters my heart into a million tiny pieces.

“We stayed like that for a while, her cheek tucked into my neck, a river of tears falling from her eyes and sliding down my throat.”

Rachel Blaufeld wrote Jake and Alyson’s story exactly as it needed to be. The feelings were real and intense and the words molded together to bring together the life of the characters effortlessly. While reading it, you can’t help but look at your life. Aly and Jake spent so much of their lives denying themselves the happiness they deserved and even when life threw them completely off kilter, they rolled with the punches and came out on top and better than ever.

This is right there at the top with my favorites. I highly recommend Absolution Road, or anything by Rachel Blaufeld. The way she writes is just beautiful, and you feel like you're living life right there with her characters.

HASH(0x9d358ccc) out of 5 stars Jake vs. Lane...I pick Jake! Oct. 5 2015
By J. Hagen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Jake and Lane are twins, and whereas Lane has always been the rule follower Jake has been the rule breaker. I seem to be drawn to the bad boys, because I felt like I instantly wanted to join the harem of Jake’s women. Lane was featured in the book “Redemption Road” and although I liked him, I felt more of an instant attraction to Jake in this book. You do not need to have read the first book to enjoy the second. This can be read as a standalone.

Jake is 31 years old, owns a couple successful fitness centers, and still harbors immense guilt for his parents’ death when he was 9 years old --so much guilt that he can’t really move forward in his life. He is stuck in purgatory, needing to find that one thing that will grant him absolution so that he can forgive himself.

He is bitter at Lane because Lane is now living a happy life with a loving wife and daughter. Jake may be angry at Lane, but at the same time Jake is beginning to see that Lane is truly happy-- maybe that kind of life would be possible for him too if he could just let go of the past. Jake’s past is ladled with a lot of mistakes that are now beginning to add to his self-declared pity party.

Quote: I wanted to get down on my hands and knees and pray to a God I didn’t believe in for forgiveness for my past transgressions. If need be, I would beg for a second chance to be deserving of some goodness, even if it only was for a short while.

Alyson is a 27-year-old public defender. She first meets Jake on Christmas Eve when Jake took a stand on not calling Lane to bail him out. Now it seems like every place they go, they see each other and Jake tries his hardest to get Alyson to admit there’s a reason why fate keeps placing them together. Alyson is very work oriented and she has recently been placed on a very high-profile case. She is pretty much a no-nonsense girl and plays strictly by the rules. Jake loves to break rules, so she doesn’t see how they could possibly have anything in common. Jake is very persistent and eventually it will pay off.

Things never go easy for Jake and an event will take place that will truly test his will to find the act of forgiveness that he believes he needs. Does he need absolution or does he just need love?

I was provided with a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

“Come back to me. I love you.”

HASH(0x9d358d74) out of 5 stars 4.5 Absolved Stars!!!! Oct. 1 2015
By Ms.Meesh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"With this girl, I wanted something I'd never wanted before. To be a better man. For her. For me."

Absolution Road by Rachel Blaufeld was an emotional, poignant, touching and inspirational story on love, hope, and second chances. Ms. Blaufeld spellbinds her readers as she chronicles a man living in his own purgatory while weaving and exposing the raw human emotions of pain, guilt, loss, sadness, love, and trust.

I did not read the first book Redemption Lane so I went in totally blind as to what I was getting myself into as I read Jake Wrigley's story. Luckily for me, this book can be read as standalone but trust me after reading Absolution Road, this made me want to get to know Jake's twin, Lane. In Absolution Road, we are introduced to Jake Wrigley, a broken man who suffers with his own inner demons and guilt. His parents death impacted Jake in such a way that he feels responsible for their death. When Jake lands himself in jail after getting in an altercation, he meets his public defender Aly Road. Aly informs Jake that he is free to go since the other guy is not going to press charges. In that one fated meeting, there was something about Aly that intrigued Jake like she was meant to save him. Fast forward to a couple months later, Aly sees Jake again and this time he makes it his mission to integrate himself into her life. As Jake spends more time with her, he sees this beautiful, strong independent woman who is struggling financially but is too stubborn to ask for help. In wanting to help her, he does these small and big gestures that surely will have any woman swooning.

"...I was meant for you, Aly, for however long you'll let me stay. So, let me in."

As Aly begins to let Jake into her life, he begins to worry that she be running in another direction once she learns of his past. When Jake finally tells her of his secret, it does not scare Aly but instead allows her to see that the broken man she is falling for needs her love to save him from drowning in his guilt, pain, and loss. Slowly without realizing it, Jake begins to see the light and hope that shines with Aly by his side. A once broken heart begins to heal and get pieced back together. And as for Aly, she slowly begins to let Jake into her life. With very few friends, Jake awakens and ignites this intense and burning passion in Aly. A new spark of hope begins to awaken them both. No longer in the dark their love awaken the possibility that their hope and lives can change. As they begin their relationship, will Jake's guilt keep him from truly moving forward on this new road of love and healing? Or will the road to happily ever after veer off course when darkness begins to cast its shadows on Aly and Jake?

The story of Aly and Jake will awaken all the FEELS! Absolution Road was heartbreakingly beautiful and touching. Ms. Blaufeld truly captured everything from every action, vulnerability, dialogue, and raw emotions. All the feels were tangible and palpable as it courses through every page. Aly and Jake's story is one of those fated love tales that speaks volumes of unconditional love and healing. I honestly don't want to say much since there is a big unexpected shocking twist of events. But I will say that Absolution Road is a book that needs to be experienced and savored. It is a journey where Ms. Blaufeld will reminds us all that love is an unconditional commitment to an imperfect person. To love somebody isn't just a strong feeling but it's a decision and promise that you will love everything about your significant other...flaws and all. So if you are looking for a book that speaks so many volumes on love, hope and second chances then I highly recommend you to read Absolution Road. Be prepared to get lost in Aly and Jake's story that will remind us all to not let our fears and past hold us a prisoner. Let hope and love set us free.
