Review & #Giveaway ~*~ Stand of Redemption by Cathryn Williams

Stand of Redemption
Stand # 2
By: Cathryn Williams
Releasing August 25th, 2014
Young Ink Press

I’m Nicholas Brooks.
Everyone thinks I’m a nice guy, a local fighter who plays by the rules.
I’m not.
I killed someone when I was sixteen.
The women love me, but I use them.
All except Ria.
However, to have her, I’ll have to fight for her.
The pit isn’t for wimps, either. No rules—get the KO.
To earn redemption, there is always a price.
Even if I win, I lose. Because Ria just might be the price I pay.

I have to admit, I am really in love with the fighter books lately and couldn't pass up a chance to read Stand of Redemption even though Cathryn Williams is a new-to-me author. I'm really glad I gave it a chance because it was an emotional story that isn't cookie cutter and stands out from others in the same genre. 
Nicholas and Ria are almost like ships passing the night for awhile. We learn about them after a brief encounter where emotions toward each other aren't necessarily positive.  Both characters are strong, but they do what they have to to protect those they love.  There is a lot of drama and emotion packed into this story that just give us characters we can love and hate all rolled into one. 
If you like a passionate story where the characters face real issues and turmoil, I recommend picking up Stand of Redemption!

Author Info
Cathryn Williams is the oldest and only female in a family of four children. While born on the east coast, she has lived all over the country. Her father’s job as an engineer caused the family to move throughout her entire youth. She has spent time in Texas, Idaho, and Nevada before moving back to the eastern part of the country as an adult.
It was during these early years that her love of literature began, starting with Nancy Drew and growing with the Sweet Valley High series stories. This passion grew with each book and has caused her to transition into writing her own stories. Cathryn’s inspiration stems from a diverse childhood, loving family, and oversized lapdog Scarlet. When not giving life to her characters, she enjoys traveling, marathoning TV shows, and spending time with her family.
