Hot Redemption by K.D. Penn

Title: Hot Redemption
Author: K.D. Penn (pseudonym for Kenya Wright and D.T. Dyllin)
Genre: Cyberpunk Erotic Romance
Publisher: Dragonfairy Press
Expected publication: July 2013

Epic and his brothers don’t rob strip clubs for fun or fame, but to use the electric currency to take care of their family. With androids and robots flooding the job market, it’s almost impossible for humans to find work. Besides, stealing comes easy to the gang, until Phoenix steps into their lives, snatching away their bounty and fogging up Epic’s mind with her seductive scent.

Shots blare. A chase ensues. Both sides refuse to yield. And the small compromise that comes is brought by chains and a promise for a bigger hit—on a planet far away from earth.

Can Epic and Phoenix work together to rescue themselves from poverty?

Or will they find another type of redemption, one lathered in lust and warmth, pleasure, and the type of undemanding love that no human can live without?

My Review

 Nixie had been burned. Literally, by an abusive ex. She was weary of men and not looking for any kind of romantic relationship. She worked as a stripper, and she used wealthy men for their money, but only till she could pull off a heist to put her into retirement. Then in walks Epic and he changed her whole game. Not only did he steal back what she stole from him, but the longer she was around him, he was getting to her. And she found herself wanting him as much as he wanted her. Could she put her past behind her and trust this kind hearted thief? Could they have a real future?

I'll admit that this story didn't really catch my attention from the beginning. It's set in the future and I kind of had a hard time picturing it and understand what was going on at first. Some of the wording is different, but once I understood what it all stood for, I started to enjoy the story of Epic and Nix. And was it ever a hot story! At first they resisted and tried to make it a work only arrangement, but as they fell for  each other it was easy to look past their lawless ways and see the sweet love story lurking underneath. By the end their love scenes had me panting for more. I really enjoyed it. It was a fast paced thrill ride! I'd give it 4 stars since it didn't hook me from the beginning, but I am glad I gave it a chance and kept on. Very enjoyable read!

About the Authors
K.D. Penn is a pseudonym for the writing team of Kenya Wright and D.T. Dyllin. Or to make it simpler for you…

Kenya Wright always knew she would be famous since the ripe old age of six when she sang the Michael Jackson thriller song in her bathroom mirror. She has tried her hand at many things from enlisting in the Navy for six years as a Persian-Farsi linguist to being a nude model at an art university.

However, writing has been the only constant love in her life. Will she succeed? Of course.

For she has been coined The Urban Fantasy Queen, the Super Iconic Writer of this Age, The Lyrical Genius of Our Generation. Granted, these are all terms coined by her, within the private walls of her bathroom as she still sings the Michael Jackson thriller song.

Kenya Wright currently resides in Miami with her three amazing, overactive children, a
supportive, gorgeous husband, and three cool black cats that refuse to stop sleeping on Kenya’s head at night.

Cynical-Optimist. Chocolate-holic. Sarcasm Addict. Paranormal Believer. Self-Imposed Insomniac. Sci-Fi Geek. Animal Lover. Writer…are just a few words to describe D.T. Dyllin. She was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and now lives in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and two very spoiled GSDs.
