Hunting for Redemption (A Collection of Hunters, #1) by Toby Wise

Hunting for Redemption kicks off a spin off series from the Collection of Strays books.

From the blurb:

Waking up as a vampire was NOT part of the plan.

When Axel gets a call from a trusted friend informing him of a newly turned vampire, he jumps at the chance to help this baby vampire get his footing. The last thing Axel expects is for said vampire to be his true mate.

Becoming a vampire was not something Jeff had planned for, let alone learning that the man who’s taking care of him is also his mate. As the leader of a group of hunters, he's supposed to protect the world from the supernatural, not join them.

Now Jeff will have to balance his new world with his old life while trying to right the wrongs of his family's past. Can Axel help Jeff find redemption? Or is there no such thing for a hunter?

Hunting for Redemption is book one of A Collection of Hunters. This book is filled with self acceptance, hurt/comfort, true mates, mpreg, and of course, a happily ever after.

Jacquie's Review:

I've not read all of the Collection books, just the first in fact and I think that Jeff is in the 2nd book, so my review is of this basically as a standalone. 

Hunting for Redemption works on its own easily. There's enough information there for the reader to get full enjoyment and some teasers for those that have read them all. 

I enjoy this authors writing. Though the books are shorter there is still plenty packed in them. We get steam, sweetness, a bit of danger and a cute baby. The mpreg aspects are lightly described.

Reds Book Reads Review:

Jeff is a hunter who, along with his team, hunts rogue supernaturals who are hunting or harming humans. Axel is a born vampire who is often called to help newly turned vampires with the transition. When the hunter becomes the very thing he hunts, he has to learn if there is a way forward or if this is the end of the road. 

I loved Jeff and Axel. They were super sweet and caring and both supported the other throughout the changes in their lives. I absolutely adored Hunting for Redemption and can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Angel's Review:

Hunting For Redemption is a new series by Toby Wise. From my understanding it's a spin off of his Collection Of Strays series. There are some characters from that series that overlap in this one, we get to see Star again who's the midwife for a lot of the characters in his other series. I love when characters crossover and it was done really well here.

This story is about Jeff, who's a hunter. He along with his team make sure that vampires who are out of control are stopped. When one case goes horribly wrong he loses his humanity and instead gains immortality.

However... Maybe things aren't as bad as they first seem. Considering he ends up finding his fated mate.

This story was really great, I have loved Toby's writing and this one did not disappoint. The characters were great, I'm really, really interested in reading the side characters stories. I'm so intrigued by Carlos... I wonder what his story is going to be? If you want a quick read filled with vampires finding their mate and having a vampire baby, then this is the book for you!

Janet's Review:

Loved, loved, loved Axel and Jeff!! I loved just about everything this author writes! He always gives us a sweet and sexy story! 

Jeff is a hunter and is taken by surprise when his is captured by a vampire and turned. Axel gets a call to help said baby vampire not knowing that Jeff is his mate. 

I seriously loved Jeff and Axel together!! Sweet with all the feels! 

Overall, a fantastic feel-good paranormal story, well written and great pacing. Hard to put down, highly recommended.
