~Summary from Goodreads~
Is it possible to be at peace and content in life when you have so many regrets? After everything Megan and Nate have been through, things are finally looking up. A trip to Vegas solidifies their relationship, and everything is as it should be. Or is it? Megan is the happiest she’s ever been, and although Nate says he is too, she sees the torment in his eyes when he thinks she isn’t looking. She knows the guilt he feels for everything he has done weighs on him daily. But she hopes that one day he can let go of the past and finally live a life without regrets. After the note Nate found on his old enemy six months ago, he is determined to find out what it means, even if the answer puts him and his new pack-
mates at risk.
When Megan gets a call from her friend Adrian asking for her help to find his sister, she is compelled to join him. And everyone in their group is shocked at what they find.
When they return home, controversy and tension erupts, creating more questions and few answers.
In an unexpected twist, conflict comes between Nate and a friend he has known for fifty years. Will there be harmony in the pack once again, or will the anger and hostility rip apart their formerly tight knit group?
~My Review~
Well, this is my third try writing this review. For some reason, I just can’t seem to find the right words without giving a heap of spoilers. So here goes take #3 …
I’ve read all of Smith’s books and have enjoyed each one, but A Moon’s Glow series is one of my favorites. Riley’s Redemption wrapped-up this series nicely.There was a lot of friend bonding time, and tons of sappy romance moments.
This is the only reason for the 4 star rating. The romance just took up too much of the book. Don’t get me wrong, Nate and Meg are a cute couple, but at times it felt as if the entirestory was about them being in love, and mixed with all the bonding time, I found it slow. 
There just wasn’t as much action as past books in this series.
With that said, the writing was just as good, if not better than the others. There was a twist that I would have never guessed and the ending was a perfect HEA.
In the end Riley’s Redemption was a good wrap-up to this series. I’m looking forward to
see what Smith will come out with next.
