Atone by Beth Yarnall

Beth Yarnall’s sexy and emotional Recovered Innocence series continues as two broken souls discover that keeping their hands off each other is even harder than facing their demons.

Beau: Six years. That’s how long I spent behind bars for a crime I didn’t commit—the murder of the woman I loved. Now I’m free, but life on the outside is a different kind of prison. I don’t know who I am or who I want to be. At least I have my sister, Cora. She never stopped believing in me. She even got me a job at the private investigation agency that cleared my name. And then Vera Swain walks into Nash Security and Investigations and kicks my world on its ass.

Vera: There’s only one thing that would make me come out of hiding after two years on the run: finding my sister. I made the mistake of telling a monster about her, the same monster who beat me and broke me. Now I’m forced to confide in Beau Hollis of Nash Security and Investigations. He looks at me like he knows me—the real me. He sees too much, makes me feel too much. The pleasure he offers is exciting and addictive. But I can’t fall for him...because my love could get us both killed.

Atone is the second book in the Recovered Innocence series. There is enough information given in the book that I think it can be read as a standalone. You get to see Cora and Leo from Vindicate but since this is Beau's book you really aren't missing anything.

Beau was in prison for a crime he didn't commit, with his sister's help, he was released. Now he's living with her, sleeping on her couch, and working at the PI agency that helped free him. He is sort of lost. He doesn't know what to do with the second chance he was given, until Vera walks in looking to hire them to help find her sister. Beau is drawn to her. He can see the broken in her that he knows is reflected in his eyes. Without any experience and no idea how what he'll do, he agrees to help her.

The initial attraction is quick but it develops nicely throughout the read. I was invested, I had to know what happened. Atone was a good combination of all the things I enjoy in a read, romance, a dash of suspense, and a good hit to the feels. I am excited to see where Reclaim takes me.

This is the second book in the series – and you really do need to read book one first to get the whole picture – although it is possible to enjoy this on its own merits too.

Beau is finally free, thanks to his sister Cora, but he really doesn't know what comes next. As he does some work at Nash's, suddenly a walk-in new case could be just what he needs. Vera has a problem, although she is not entirely truthful about it – and as the story progresses, we understand why. These two damaged people find something special in each other and start to heal from their pasts along the way. Their love is strangely pure, and wonderful to watch grow, especially as the disturbing story of Vera's past unfolds.

This a good story of redemption, of justice being served, and a really meaningful revelation of just what love can mean between two people.

Thank you Ms. Yarnall, I am excited to see what comes up in the next book.
