Redemption: An MM Kelpie x Human Monster Romance (Innocent Monsters) by Stella Rainbow

Two men who are complete opposites, learn that there's more to each other than what it seems in Redemption.

From the blurb:

A lonely kelpie trapped in his small world. A human on the run in need of a safe haven.


After almost killing two humans under the influence of dark magic, I'd lost the last of my will to live. What was the point, when every day was exactly like the one before and I had no one to share it with?

Just when I was about to end it all, a human came stumbling into my clearing with a bizarre offer: He'd be my friend if I promised to protect him from the people he was running from.


When I realized I was missing a day's worth of memories, I had to investigate what had happened, and it led me to Alaric. Fascinated by the strange being that he was, I ended up striking a deal with him.

The more time I spent with Alaric, the more I realized what a sweet and kind man hid behind the 'monster.' It wasn't a surprise when I fell in love with him, but the people I'd been running from were determined to find me. Would they let me have my happily ever after?

Redemption is an MM Monster x Human romance featuring a ramen-obsessed kelpie, a reformed human, and lots of sweet moments.

While Redemption is the fourth book in the Innocent Monsters series, it can be read as a standalone.

Note: This story features a monster-human romantic and sexual relationship. Please use the 'Look Inside' feature or download a sample to check the trigger warnings on the copyright page!

Angel's review:

I really enjoyed this book! I have enjoyed each book in this series so far, but I think this one is my favorite. I have never read a book about a Kelpie before and I found that character extremely interesting. Alaric's powers and the magic he has is so unique, the fact that he can wield water and morph it into what he desires is so cool!I really enjoyed how Alaric's character is portrayed as a grump, but he actually is a big ol' softie. His character was so fascinating to read about, and I loved how he got invested in certain shows that Bellamy introduced him to. I also love the humor that was involved when these two men played games with each other, I found those moments really funny and enjoyable to read. Alaric's obsession with Ramen was funny and cute, he wanted to try all the flavors!

The relationship that formed between these two characters was definitely a slow burn, despite these two being each other's fated mate, they didn't automatically get into a relationship with each other. They took it slow and took their time to get to know one another, and formed a strong friendship and a strong bond before romance came into play. I really enjoyed how the relationship between these characters developed, the pacing was really good, the writing itself made sense, the characters were great too.

One thing I will say is that I personally don't think Bellamy's boss coming after him was needed. I understand why that was a part of the story, I understand what Stella was trying to do, I just found that it wasn't necessary.

Overall a really good addition to this series, I'm so excited for Ebenezer's book!!
