Blog Tour, Review by Maimeo's Angels: Exquisite Redemption (Iron Horse MC #3) by Ann Mayburn




Sarah In my wild, reckless past Carlos ‘Beach’ Rodriguez would have been my ideal man. He’s handsome, experienced, rich, kind, and in complete control of his destiny. Unfortunately he’s also a criminal, the President of an outlaw motorcycle club, and I’ve sworn off bad boys in my efforts to live my dream of being normal. It would be so much easier to resist him if he hadn’t saved my life more than once and didn't treat me like his queen. Beach Gorgeous, smart, and deadly, Sarah is my ideal woman, even if she is almost young enough to be my daughter. On the surface she’s one of the toughest females I’ve ever met, but underneath all that hard beauty and menace lies an incredibly tender heart that’s been damaged in the past. Winning her love is gonna be a challenge, but I’m determined to have her as my old lady and I’ll do whatever I have to in order to make that happen. That would be a hell of a lot easier to do if people weren’t trying to kill us all the time. **Author's note- This is part ONE of TWO for Beach and Sarah's story and ends on a Happy For Now. Book TWO of Beach and Sarah's story will be available February 4th, 2016.**



4.5 Star 

 I received this book in exchange for an honest review. 
This is book 3 in the Iron Horse MC series. I will warn you that this is part one of two for 
Beach and Sarah’s story although I believe that the second book will be out in February. 
Beach and Sarah were introduced in the first two books (from Swan and Smoke’s perspective 
mainly). In the previous books, their story was told through the eyes of Smoke and Swan 
(Sarah’s identical twin sister) and was a sanitized version of how they met and what occurred. 
This is the real story.
Carlos “Beach” Rodriguez is the National President of the Iron Horse MC. He is a hard and 
often violent man; just reading how he came by the name of “Beach” sent shivers down my 
spine. However, he is also a man deeply in love with Sarah and is absolutely determined to 
make her his “old lady”.
Sarah is gorgeous, smart and independent, surviving a hard and at times tragic and difficult 
past and yet through sheer determination has survived. She and her twin sister Swan were 
raised separately by their parents, with Sarah being taken and raised by her mother. Poor 
Sarah really drew the short straw. Thankfully she has been able to establish a relationship 
with her father and step-mother which has stood her in good stead for what occurs in 
Exquisite Redemption.
The sizzling chemistry between Beach and Sarah is smoking hot and Ann Mayburn certainly 
knows how to write scenes that make your panties burst into flames.
I admit that having read the previous two books Exquisite Trouble and Exquisite Danger I did 
get a little lost on occasion. Since this book tells the story of Beach and Sarah, it crosses with 
events in the first two books and it was hard at times knowing what had transpired (in the first 
two books) to follow Beach and Sarah’s thoughts as I already knew what had occurred and 
who the traitor was. 
There is certainly plenty of action, not to mention trouble in this story and I cannot wait to 
see how Ann Mayburn explores the relationship between Beach and Sarah in the next book.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend that if you haven’t yet read any of Ann 
Mayburn’s books that you do yourself a favor and remedy that as soon as possible.
I will wait impatiently for February so that I can read the conclusion to Beach and Sarah’s 




With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened. From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back. Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
