Tate “Talker” Walker’s life has been a rocky road riddled with one boulder after another but he survived it all. The latest event, that Talker calls “The Worst.Date.Ever”, has more of a grip on him. Even with his boyfriend Brian Cooper’s help, he still has a hard time facing the truth and calling the event by its true name.

Talker and Brian soon learn you can’t escape the past. The things that you may want to bury and forget will soon resurface and if you aren’t lucky, people can get hurt. Will this be the nudge Talker needs to finally face the pain?

Talker's Redemption is Amy Lane’s sequel to Talker. The trauma and fear Talker experienced was felt in each line of this sequel. His desire to not want to face the problem was understandable. But his strength, when it was required, left me pumping my fist. I knew in that moment he wouldn’t willingly become anyone’s victim or allow others to treat him unjustly again. Watching that pain transform into a source of power for Talker to tap into was priceless. Ultimately, his decision and determination to be Brian’s protector was a candid glimpse and pure love and devotion. Those moments made the story that much more enjoyable for me.

Talker's Redemption has a few erotic moments that express the caring and passion of this young couple. I love the road Talker and Brian decided to travel together and hope there is more about Talker in the future. The author has done a great job bringing us this sensitive subject while entertaining us at the same time. Wonderful story, Ms. Lane!
