Something like Redemption picks up where Something like Normal leaves off. Quinn and Mia are on the run. Trying to stay one ahead of her father and Phil. Mia wants to leave Quinn behind just to save him. Quinn is determined to stick to Mia at all costs. The two become closer as they travel across country but Mia is still unsure of her relationship with Quinn. Never having any type of romantic relationship, Mia just doesn't know what to do or how to act. Quinn isn't letting her go. Slowly Mia starts to accept her feeling for Quinn. She misses her friends from South Boston. Upset and angry over Hanks death she finds herself trying to cope with all these feelings she has never felt before.
The character development in this series is awesome. Mia slowly processes her feelings for Quinn, her friends. things she has never had or felt before. It's heartbreaking at times to think she has lived nineteen years and is just now learning all this. Quinn is amazing. He has his own secrets but is determined to stick to Mia and see where the relationship is going. He isn't about to leave her behind or get left behind. At these times his alpha male comes out and it is so endearing. The protectiveness he shows with Mia, the kind, caring love just jumps off the page at you. Even though they are on the run he wants her to see how a relationship is supposed to go. I have to admit I had a moment at the end when I realized that there is another cliffhanger. I had to scream NO. I so want to know what happens. So it is back to waiting for the next book. It is so worth the wait.
