Jake is one of a pair, he is a twin who has always felt the lesser person for various reasons and is full of guilt over the death of his parents. Aly is a public defence lawyer who grew up poor and has never felt like she belonged anywhere.
They first meet when Aly is called out one Christmas Eve to represent Jake after a bar brawl, and they feel an instant attraction towards one another.
Aly is in no way open to showing her feelings towards Jake, but fate has another plan for them when months later they keep bumping into each other, and Jake decides that he is going to take advantage of kismet by insisting she goes on a date with him.
Alyson Road is full of confidence when she is in the courtroom or with her clients, however once she steps outside of her professional box, she is a very insecure and introvert woman. What could the handsome and fit mutli gym owner possibly want with her? Little does she know, that he is looking for love and he sees something in her that he wants to take hold of and protect.
This was a story about two people who were both feeling inadequate, until they met each other and helped the other to heal. There is also a great suspense story going on in the background which made it all a bit more interesting.
Having not read book 1, Redemption Lane, I didn't feel lost at all, and pretty much got the gist of the events that took place prior to Jake and Aly's story.
This is Book 2 in the Crossroads Series, but can be read as a Standalone. Told in dual POV.
These two together are so perfect. Where Jake is brash, aggressive and completely confident, Aly is the opposite, she's methodical, level headed and although she can appear fairly confident, suffers from a bit more self-esteem issues than business owner Jake, especially when it comes to Jake's rather intrusive and promiscuous past.
Absolution Road, was so well written, instantly you're in love with Jake and his jack-the-lad routine, he's got the charm and the looks but is that enough to snare the one girl that he really truly believes in? It might be when Aly learns that our hero has another level to him one full of sadness and regret and one that only she seems to see.
This might be an epic love story at the heart of it all, but there's still some core issues and a lot of drama that takes shape half way through the book, really amping up the suspense and tragedy angle but also lending it a deeper and stronger plot that inevitably gives us a beautiful love story of perseverance, strength and trust. Another stunning and beautifully written book from Rachel.
Absolution Road gives us the second Wrigley Brothers story. This time it is Jake and although he featured in Redemption Lane his character was not one that came across as particularly likeable for a lot of the story. Of course as that book progressed you did see more of him and his motivations in relation to his interactions with his brother Lane, and the reasons behind a lot of his actions.
Jake is a troubled character, and Rachel Blaufeld, has given him a story as emotionally engrossing and beautifully written as his brother Lane’s was. I think what strikes me most as a reader with this authors books is that although the romance is integral to everything that happens, the story is so much more than that.
Jake for all his complexities, and personal demons is essentially a nervous teenager when it comes to his relationship with Aly, having been more of the one and done, kind of guy before she enters his life, I found his nervousness about entering a relationship with her and his second-guessing of everything he tried to do for her so endearing, this big muscled hulk of a man, bought to his knees by the one woman you would least expect him to really be attracted to.
Once again the author also gave us a strong female, Alyson Road is someone you can empathize with, strong and independent, Jake’s pursuance of her and the almost innocent bumbling along of his efforts to do the right thing, but usually in the totally wrong way gave this couple a lot of moments together where you just kind of stopped reading to smile to yourself for a moment.

Jake first meets Alyson when he's arrested on Christmas Eve and thrown in jail, she's the public defender and when they meet he's instantly attracted to her. considering how they met though, surely they wouldn't work?
I did like this book, but for some reason I didn't love it as much as Redemption Lane. I don't think I really connected with the characters as much and it took me a while to get into the story. Once I got to about half way trough, I feel that the story really took off and I started to enjoy it much more.
