Review- The Rainmaker by Shauna Allen



My rating is 5 out of 5 stars

I didn’t think I would love anyone more than Asher, but I was dead wrong. My heart broke for Levi and all that he’s lost. He was a broken man that needed the right woman to bring him back to life. 
While still searching for their missing sister, Levi runs into his biggest regret from the past. He loved her, but felt he needed to do the right thing when he found out someone else was having his baby. He felt obligated to try to make a family even though he had no feelings towards Charlotte. When his son dies at 6 months old, Levi will never be the same man again.
Harper is the one that got away. Even though  he left her without an explanation, she still extended open arms to him while they still try to find Claire. She eventually finds herself in so deep and wonders if its all real.
This story was absolutely incredible. I will be on the edge of my seat waiting for The Gunman to be released. This story just draws you in and you can’t get enough. I need more pronto. Shauna has truly created a world that immerses you into the story and you feel their joy and sorrow. Absolutely phenomenal job Shauna!!


Five brothers, one family tragedy, untold heartache. ~

The world callously moved on when my sister disappeared without a trace ten years ago.
My life—my family’s lives—froze in grief that torturous summer day.
My soul crumbled completely, a few years later, when I buried my son.
I survive the agony by hiding it neatly beneath my businessman façade and all the accolades that money can buy.
But Harper Devlin is my Achilles heel. The one who got away . . . with my broken heart.
Now she’s back and as irresistible as ever.
I shouldn’t want her. I can’t have her. But I need her.
And she needs me. I may have to conceal all my wounds just to survive being around her again, but I’m willing to do it to help her build her dreams and her business. It’s what I do. It’s what I know. I’m damn good at it.
My name is Levi Creed.
I am the Rainmaker.

***Reader note: This is the second of a 6-part emotional family saga series. Each story is 100% male first-person point-of-view, and while each full-length novel is guaranteed to have a complete HEA romance, their family mystery remains unsolved until the end of the series.

***Due to profanity and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Review – Somebody Else’s Sky by Jessica Hawkins

Somebody Else’s Sky by Jessica Hawkins

Sophie’s Review: 

I’m not sure whether I love Jessica Hawkins right now or dislike her a lot. Because HOLY MAMA! That was one intense, powerful read. 

Continuing on from Something In The Way, which wrecked me in the best possible way,  Somebody Else’s Sky only serves to up the angst, up the heartache and up the intensity. My heart and soul are WRUNG OUT! I feel like I’m free falling. BUT! Here’s the thing… I’d quite happily go right back to the start and begin ALL OVER AGAIN!!!! 

That’s right, I said it! I would quite happily start afresh and relive all the heartbreak and devastation that these books deliver because IT IS THAT GOOD! And you know right before the 3rd book releases I will do just that. 

I’m not going to comment on the storyline or what happens in this book, for fear of spoiling it. All I can say is read it, pick up both books, fall in love with the writing wizard that is Jessica Hawkins and simply lose yourself to the addictive power of this breathtaking story.

5 sensational stars!

If I closed my eyes, I could still see them—all blonde sunshine, ocean-blue eyes, and long limbs. The glint of Lake’s gold bracelet. Pink cotton candy on Tiffany’s tongue. My scenery may have changed from heaven to hell, but some things never would: my struggle to do right by both sisters. To let Lake soar. To lift Tiffany up. The sacrifices I made for them, I made willingly.

A better man would’ve walked away by now, but I never claimed to be any good. I only promised myself I’d keep enough distance. If I’d learned one thing from my past, it was that love came in different forms. You could love passionately, hurt deep, die young. Or you could provide the kind of firm, steady support someone else could lean on.

Lake was everything I wanted, and nothing I could ever have. I was nobody before I knew her and a criminal after. The way to love her was to let her shine—even if it would be for somebody else.

Book two in the Something in the Way series.

Review – Sexy Jerk by Kim Karr

Sexy Jerk by Kim Karr

Sophie’s Review:

Each and every time Kim Karr writes a book, I’m pretty sure I say it’s my new favourite of hers. Each book just gets better and better and I end up falling head over heels in love with them. And with this book, it’s no different. THIS IS Kim’s BEST BOOK to date! I don’t know how she does it but she swept me off my feet with this sinful, yet hella sweet romance! 

I actually lost count of the amount of times I swooned or physically got butterflies. I lost count of the amount of times I thought to myself “I love this guy” and “where can I get me a Nick?”. Kim’s men are ALWAYS quality alpha hero’s but there was just something about Nick that gave him that edge, that made him become my FAVE Karr hero yet! 

The sexual tension that Kim has poured into Sexy Jerk relays so, so well. You feel it bubbling, you feel it building. You feel it EXPLODE. Tess & Nick are incredibly HOT. Sooooo hot. But they are also sweet and sexy. And FUN, my gosh they made my heart swell and my constant smile hurt my face. Their witty banter and hilarious back and forth really solidified these two as one hell of a couple. 

Sexy Jerk as I said at the start is Kim Karr’s best book yet. Sexy and sinful, sweet and full of swoon, it easily covers all the “contemporary romance” bases and then some!

My best friend is married.

Everyone I know is married. It doesn’t bother me. I like my life the way it is.

Since I’m single though, when my best friend and her husband finally decide to go on their dream honeymoon, she asks me to watch their three-year-old son.

Of course I say yes.

What my best friend neglects to tell me is that I won’t be babysitting alone. 

Feeling Max might be too much for me to handle, her husband asks his only single friend to help. 

Nick Carrington and I have met a couple of dozen times. I’ve never really given him a second thought—other than to say he’s kind of a jerk. Out loud. So he can hear. Sure, he’s tall, dark, and handsome. And yes, he has the best ass I’ve ever seen, and I mean ever seen quite literally. You see he mooned me at last year’s Fourth of July barbecue because, like I said, he’s a jerk.

He always has to be the life of the party.

He’s also arrogant.

Imposing.

Rich.

And a playboy.

I’d even go as far as to say he’s a manwhore.

Yet somehow before I know it, this manwhore and I are co-parenting. Living under the same roof. Eating meals together and yes, talking.

Don’t look at me like that—it’s not like I had a choice. Even though I knew every minute would be hell, I had to say yes.

But after two weeks what I didn’t expect to discover is that I’d been wrong about him. 

That under his smart-ass exterior, he’s quite charming.

That his arrogance is really confidence. 

And that the sight of his naked body would do really bad things to me.

So yes, I’d misjudged him. And yes, I like him. Really like him. Although I might still think he’s a jerk…I now think he’s a sexy jerk.

And I want more of him.

The question is—does he want more of me?

Review – All That I Am by Rachel Brookes

All That I Am Ebook Cover

Review graphic

Sasha Hamilton has everything that she could ever ask for – a thriving business, her dream home, a brother she adores and friends that are have become the family that she can depend on. After losing her mother at fifteen from a heartbreaking choice and then her father to his untimely death, Sasha has set up her walls and love is out of the question. One night stands have become the norm and all her energy is thrown into having a good time. That all changes when the sexy Monroe PD detective Ben Hunt and all his alpha bossiness comes into her life.

Ben Hunt has wanted Sasha Hamilton for as long as he can remember. He’s attracted to her sassy mouth, beautiful body and go for it all attitude. But under all that bravado, he knows her pain and has seen her insecurity. He wants past her walls, to protect her and give her everything that she has been missing out on since she was fifteen. When danger makes its way to the Hamilton family bar and a common enemy targets Sasha, Ben vows to do whatever it takes to keep Sasha safe and show her that love can truly heal a heart.

Oh, this book! So worth the wait… so worth all the agony, doubt and anxiety! All That I Am is one amazing read. There was no way to put this one down once I began reading. I devoured this beautiful love story. So many loves… the love between a girl and her big brother. The love between two very best friends. Who doesn’t want a best friend like Missy? The love of family made in the heart. But the most important love I saw was the love that Sasha was finally able to give to herself after building such high walls to protect herself. Amazing to see how easily that love changed everything and gave Sasha the courage to try.

Ben is… perfect. Bossy though he may be, he is everything that Sasha needs. He’s kind, protective and persistent. He has an incredible sense of humor. Yes, he is divine and so very swoony. He gave me a few jaw dropping moments. He gave me plenty of heart in my throat moments as well. No matter what he said or did, Ben made me smile and confirmed why he’s MY Ben.

This was one of the best reads of the year for me. It was long awaited… and even a little bit delayed in the last month. Regardless of the setbacks and bumps in the road on the way to release, Rachel has written a tremendous story filled with belly laughs, gut wrenching tears, surprising twists and turns and just a good old fashioned heartfelt love story. What a welcome to Monroe.

Brilliantly and beautifully done, Rachel!

A kickass home décor boutique – tick
A sassy mouth and absolutely no filter – tick
A wall so strong no man could ever tear it down – tick, tick, tick!

Or so I thought.

Until I meet Detective Ben Hunt, the owner of exquisite blue eyes, a god-like physique and a seductive smirk that makes me weak at the knees. He charges into my life like a force of nature. No matter how hard I try to keep the walls up around my heart, he’s made it his mission to shatter them. I have no chance of resisting him, but I would make sure I won this tug of war.

Which was what I wanted.

Right? When did the idea of losing myself to him start to sound so good?

I wish Ben was the only battle I faced. There’s a reason this small town needs a good detective. One way or another I’m going to have to brace for impact, because no wall I build can stop the new threat thundering toward Monroe.

After all, secrets only stay a secret for so long around here.

PROLOGUE

SASHA

Thirteen years earlier.

 “Mom! I’m home.”

Summer break had arrived, and all I could think about was lying out with Missy, shopping trips into the city with Mom, and spending Sundays dancing and causing underage havoc at my family’s bar, Hamilton’s.

I shrugged off my bag, dropped it on the couch, and then strolled through the house, listening for any signs of where my mom was.

As soon as I walked into the kitchen, I stopped. The familiar aroma of chocolate didn’t greet me, and my mom’s perfume didn’t linger in the air. I turned around quickly and looked to the counter where a fresh plate of brownies always sat on Friday afternoons. But today, for the first time, there was nothing.

I left the kitchen and searched the house.

Living room. Empty.

Dining room. Empty.

Bathroom. Empty.

Everywhere. Empty.

I began to panic. After school, I never arrived home to an empty house. Mom made it very clear that she’d always be here when Drew and I got home. For as long as I could remember, she’d told us that her favorite thing about being a Mom was being able to be home for us.

Now she wasn’t here.

“Sasha.”

I jumped at Dad’s voice calling my name behind me. I turned quickly, smiling, expecting to find Dad and Mom together. As soon as I saw him on his own, my smile fell. He stood in the foyer with his arms folded across his chest, and he didn’t look like my Dad. He looked like a shadow of himself. His eyes would always twinkle when he looked at me, but now they showed nothing but sadness.

“Where’s mom?” I asked as my heart raced.

“Come here, Sash,” Dad said low, his voice cracking.

Hesitantly, I moved toward him. When I was within reach, his hand shot out and grabbed mine and I was pulled toward him.

“Dad, what’s going on?”

We moved through the house in silence. Every step I took, my anxiety soared and my confusion grew. What was going on? Dad held open the back door, and I stepped out onto the porch. Drew leaned against the railing, looking out over the yard, but turned when he heard us arrive. His face was as blank as Dad’s.

I took a seat on the porch swing and held one of the yellow cushions Mom and I had purchased during one of our epic shopping trips close to my chest. “Where’s mom?” I asked softly. “What’s going on?”

If it were anyone else, including Dad, I would of thought he was at the store or at work, but not Mom. She was always here. Our family had traditions. Friday’s were our time.

Dad, Mom, Drew, and me.

“I love you more than anything, Sasha,” Dad said, his voice strangled with emotion and his eyes shimmering with tears. He sucked in a deep breath before saying the words that would forever change my life. “She’s gone, Baby Girl. She left.”

Gone.

Left.

His words hit me hard.

My throat closed as his words sunk in. The tormented look shadowing his face didn’t lie, but I didn’t want to believe it. I wanted to believe there was some kind of mistake, but why would my Dad lie to me about something like this? Gone and left were final. There was no mistaking what they meant.

“Baby Girl, did you hear me?”

“What do you mean she’s gone?” I stammered, as the first tear fell over my cheek.

Dad wrapped his arms around me and hauled me against his chest. The usual comfort his arms provided had no chance of healing the hurt spiraling through me.

There was no way she’d leave. Why would she have told me this morning that she breathed for us? That her heart beat for us. My mother was everything I dreamt of becoming, and now I was being told she was gone?

“This can’t be real.” I shook my head. “There has to be a mistake.” My voice became more frantic and louder with every word. “How do you even know she’s gone? Maybe she’s just at the store. Or popped into work.”

I was clutching onto anything that would lessen the pain tearing through me.

“She isn’t at the store.” Dad spoke softly. “She isn’t at Hamilton’s either.”

I tore myself away from Dad and ran back inside. I had to see for myself. I went into every room and found nothing. I hesitated outside my parent’s room and then slowly entered. The dresser was bare. Mom’s jewelry was gone, her favorite perfume gone, her lipstick gone. I stumbled into the closest and was smacked in the face with a brutal reality. Mom’s clothes, shoes, and her suitcase were gone.

Nothing was left.

Everything was gone.

Feeling numb, I walked into my room and lay on my bed. I buried my face in my pillow as the first sob left my chest. Tears saturated my pillow, and my chest ached from trying to catch my breath.

As I pulled the pillow closer, the crinkle of paper sounded. With shaking hands, I pulled out a folded piece of paper from beneath my pillow and held my breath as I saw my mom’s familiar handwriting. I inhaled sharply and unfolded it.

Baby girl,

Please never forget how much I love you. You will always be in my heart, and every breath I take is for you.

Forgive me,

Mom x

The words became blurry as fresh tears hit my eyes. Why would she do this? My mother chose to leave me? Why wasn’t I enough? My chest screamed at me. The pain was excruciating, and I felt like my heart was going to stop.

I didn’t hear my bedroom door open and didn’t know anyone was in my room until I felt my bed dip beside me.

“Squirt, come here,” Drew whispered as he grabbed my hand and pulled me against his body.

I went willingly to him and crashed against his chest. His arms circled me, and I cried against his shirt, soaking the cotton with hot, heartbreaking tears.

“How could she do this?” I choked out through another wave of tears. “What did we do wrong?”

“We did nothing. You did nothing wrong.” The strength in his voice made me look up at him. “We are the Hamilton kids. We will get through this. I promise you, Sasha.”

My brother. My protector.

“I’ll never let anything or anyone hurt you again. You have my word and my protection for life.”

I believed him.

I had to believe him.

Review- Goaltending by Jami Davenport



My rating is 5 out of 5 stars

When I first started reading this, I did not like Brick at all. I thought he was such an arrogant playboy who cared only about himself. As the story evolved I started feeling emotional with him, and by the end he had me in tears, happy ones!

When a playboy hockey player is single and does nothing but party and sleep with countless women, gets a knock on his door, his whole life gets flipped upside down. He has a 5 year old daughter that was left on his doorstep with a note. He has no clue what to do.

Ammie works at her sister in laws daycare. She is also going to school to help children because of a tragedy that occurred years ago. It’s left her Leary of men. But then Brick walks in looking for someone to watch his daughter for 2 weeks, Ammie jumps at the chance for all that money.

She develops an immediate connection to Macy, but Brick found it harder to find that connection so he avoided the situation. The road they travel is hard and connections begin to form, but Brick’s childhood hangups have him wanting to run and avoid it all.

I’ll tell you, I thought I was going to give this book a 4 star rating, but by the time I got to the end and was crying tears of joy, I knew all 3 of them had stolen my heart as well.



WANTED: Single dad needs nanny–In more ways than one.

Martin “Brick” Bricker is living the good life. He’s playing the sport he loves, has all the women he can handle, and parties like a rock star. At twenty-six, he has no interest in slowing down or taking anything seriously–except hockey, of course.

Then a knock at his door changes everything.Suddenly he’s the single father to a five-year-old daughter he didn’t know he had, and he’s trading his playboy ways for Barbies.

Amelia Stacey struggles to make ends meet and juggles her day-care job with a full load of college classes. When she’s offered a temporary, two-week nanny position making more money than she imagines, she jumps at the chance. Before she knows it, she’s in over her head, not just with her five-year-old charge but with the girl’s hot single father.

Brick always goes after what he wants, and he wants Amelia. Only responsible Amelia doesn’t want anything to do with the party boy. Struggling with fatherhood and his unexplainable attraction to his nanny, Brick has to figure out where his daughter and Amelia fit into his life.If they fit at all.

But one thing’s for sure: Brick can’t block this shot straight to his heart.

Review – Sexy Stranger by Kendall Ryan 


Sexy Stranger by Kendall Ryan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t stop grinning and it’s all because of Kendall Ryan. Sweet SIGH. I have a huge SAPPY SMILE on my face from Kendall Ryan’s latest spicy and swoon-filled sensation, Sexy Stranger. In one HELLA GOOD surprise attack, Sexy Stranger snuck up on me, swiftly swooping in and stealing my heart. This romance ROCKED MY WORLD!

I’m a sucker for small town romances, and the Texas setting is just DREAMY! I LOVED all-alpha country candy, Luke, and sassy and sexy Charlotte. Together they are combustible!

The banter is ENTICING and ENTERTAINING:

“I shouldn’t have assumed that you were all cowboys. You’re clearly just an a**hole.”

“Takes one to know one, sweetheart.”


The FEELS pound the pages:

Was it just me? Or did she feel it too?


The HEAT blazes so hot it BURNS:

“What do you say, sweetheart? Are you ready to ride my cock?”


The FEELS pound and penetrate some more:

“Ask me to stay.”


The SWOON flows in SPADES:

“If you ever need to run again, just promise this time that you’ll take me with you.”


I FELT the heat, the angst, the longing, and the swoon. I FELT IT ALL. This Sexy Stranger OWNED ME.

There is nothing that quite spikes the adrenaline and flames the feels than a feisty enemies-to-lovers tale. This romance POUNDS with PASSION and seduces with steam. Sexy Stranger is a slow burn of a book that blazes with passion and bleeds angst, the PERFECT FIERY FUSION.

Fire-hot and feisty meet sweet and swoon in Sexy Stranger, a heart-pounding love story that leaves you MELTING for MORE. I was DRUNK on this book, as Sexy Stranger was my sweet and slow-burning whiskey, so delicious. IMMENSE INTOXICATION. Kendall Ryan wrote a whiskey-smooth and sweet romance that is UTTERLY UNPUTDOWNABLE. I LOVED this whiskey-coated love story and NEED MORE.

💋💋💋💋💋 whiskey kisses

View all my reviews


From New York Times Bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a sexy and sizzling, enemies-to-lovers romp with bite. 

He’s rude. Arrogant. And too hot to handle. 

And she’s stranded with him for an entire week. 

He knows the sexy stranger doesn’t belong in his small town, but he’s determined to keep her there. The second she opens her smart mouth, he wants to swap a whole lot more than insults with her. She’s got a secret. But he’s got his own agenda. 

Buckle up.

Review – Hold Me by J. Kenner 


Hold Me: A Stark Ever After Novella by J. Kenner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I open up a Stark series book, I can’t help but breathe out a SWEET SIGH, a SMILE embedded on my face as I SWOON to the sky. The Stark series is one I will gladly devour FOREVER! Each story is unequivocally CONSUMING. Each story OWNS every ounce of me. Each story makes me closer to this family than I’ll ever be to any other in books. Each story in the Stark saga is PHENOMENAL. The Stark series stands on a pedestal, one of power and passion, PURE PERFECTION in words.

The latest Stark series novella, Hold Me, is FLAWLESS and PHENOMENAL!!! This story spotlights Nikki and Damien’s family life and struggles they must overcome. Hold Me is desire meets devotion in one tender tale of timeless love. Oh did I LOVE THEE!!!


He’s strength and intelligence, commanding and tender. He’s honorable and strong, fierce and loyal. And he loves me.


Nikki and Damien are made for each other, so attuned that they are one. One heart. One soul. One perfect union. One perfect romance.


“Tonight you’re all mine, all ways, all night.”


Oh Damien! Such a powerful, passionate, and penetrating man who is sexy as sin and as sweet as pie, Damien is an alpha I so ADORE! I BURNED for him and this book!!!

There is no greater love story than that of Damien and Nikki Stark. Their devotion is UNPARALLELED and EVERLASTING…true love at its finest. Damien and Nikki are, hands down, one of my all-time favorite romance couples!!! I LOVE them sooo much!


“How did you know I was behind you?”

“Sweetheart, haven’t you learned by now? You’re part of me. How could I ever lose sight of you?”


These ENDEARING words MELTED ME!!! I could not stop SWOONING. Sweet, sensual, and seductive, Hold Me is a forever love story that left me breathless and melting for more…so much MORE. A FOREVER HIGH. Hold Me is MAGICAL, so dreamy and utterly divine where you’re guaranteed to float to Cloud Nine.
Hold Me…yes this HEARTWARMING story did. Hold Me held my heart, and it is still holding it where it will likely remain. I’m content to stay wrapped up in this heart-stopping sexy and soul-swooning series, my glorious nirvana. This fairytale full of feels will always be my forever.

I’m embedded in this Stark family created by the incredible Julie Kenner, characters that are so raw they feel real and are a part of me. To reconnect with a family of characters I’ve known for over three years is PURE BOOK BLISS that only gets BETTER. These books make me so HEADY, my heart so FULL OF LOVE for this spellbinding Stark saga. The Starks are my HAPPY PLACE, and this smoldering and sweet sigh of a series will always be HOME.❤️

💋💋💋💋💋 5 ‘hold me forever’ kisses

View all my reviews


My life with Damien has never been fuller. Every day is a miracle, and every night I lose myself in the oasis of his arms. 

But there are new challenges, too. Our families. Our careers. And new responsibilities that test us with unrelenting, unexpected trials. 
I know we will survive—we have to. Because I cannot live without Damien by my side. But sometimes the darkness seems overwhelming, and I am terrified that the day will come when Damien cannot bring the light. And I will have to find the strength inside myself to find my way back into his arms. 

I already know that Damien is running later than I am, because he’d called while I was stuck in traffic. Now I dismiss Bree for the night, then go peek in on both my girls. I want to wake them, to cuddle them close, but I let them sleep, contenting myself with watching the steady rise and fall of their little chests.

Then I take a quick shower, change into yoga pants and a T-shirt, and stretch out on our lovely iron bed, surrounded by paperwork.

That’s where I am when Damien finds me—although I’m asleep instead of busily working.

“Hey,” he says, brushing a kiss on my shoulder. “Long day?”

As I claw my way back to consciousness, he gathers my papers and sets them on the bedside table. There’s a glass of wine, too, and he hands it to me. I try to avoid alcohol since I’m breastfeeding, but I also did the research and know that a little bit isn’t a problem so long as I wait to pump or feed Anne.

“The longest,” I say, then take a grateful sip. I lean sideways against him, my back supported by the pile of pillows that rest against the wall. I give him the full rundown, the highlight of which is Eric’s surprising departure.

“You can handle continued growth,” he says, his loyalty giving me a nice warm boost of confidence. “But you’re also well-positioned to simply hold the line if that’s what you want to do. Even to downsize if it works out that way.”

I push away from him, frowning as my chest tightens uncomfortably. “What?”

“I’m just saying that you don’t have to go back to work full-throttle.”

I sit up straight. “Excuse me? Why? Because you can support us?”

“I can support us. But what I’m—”

“So I’m supposed to feel guilty about wanting to work just because you bring in billions?” Dammit, he knows how important my job is to me. How hard I’ve worked to build my business on my own, not relying on money that comes from Stark International.

He stares at me like someone might stare at a wild hyena. “That’s not what I’m saying at all.”

Review – The Rebellion by S.L. Scott

The Rebellion by S.L. Scott

You know it’s bittersweet writing this review. I’ve actually sat for a few days and have NOT wanted to write this review. For total selfish reasons. Let me explain.

See I buy a book, give it a read, leave a review and move onto the next. With this book I bought it, read it and didn’t want to write a review because I didn’t want to move on!!!!!

S.L Scott has written one of my absolute fave rocker series EVER. First she gave us Johnny, then Dex, then Kaz (OH MY GOD KAZ!!). And now we have DERRICK MASTERS! The master of my heart & soul. He’s perfection. He’s raw, flawed, but so, so beautiful and I immediately felt drawn to him and it didn’t take long to fall for him! And his relationship with Jaymes.. Just wow.

The Rebellion oozes tension, that intense, passionate tension that burns, oh so good. Something SL NAILS in this book is the way her characters connect after so long. It’s not rushed or forced or rammed down our throats, it’s built gradually, slowly, made believable and SUPER HOT. Derrick and Jaymes literally sizzle their way through this book, they pulled my breath from me on many occasion, sent my heart galloping off in a wild race and made my soul sing for them. In essence they ROCKED my world.

The Rebellion is my kind of book, the angst, the tension, the passion, the connection, all of it worked so damn well! However, if you’re not a fan of that don’t let it put you off. Aside from all that The Rebellion is a beautiful, breathtaking, second chance love story. SL has breathed hope and love into her broken, battered characters, giving them a chance. It’s so easy to get lost, swept away in the romance that runs deep in this story, the romance that makes you swoon and sigh and just hope right alongside the characters.

I never thought SL would top Kaz’s book to be honest, but she has. She’s penned a book that is the best in the series, she’s made hard work for herself because I don’t know how she’ll top this one at all. SL is a rockstar and this book flies straight to the top of my chart!

Sinfully sexy rock stars are the cornerstone of New York Times Bestselling Author, S.L. Scott’s Bestselling Hard to Resist Series. The Rebellion is the newest STAND-ALONE that brings soul-searing romance mixed with heartfelt emotions to fans of this legendary rock band.

I met my muse at fifteen. I’d just gotten busted for smoking behind the school gymnasium. She inspired me with her laugh and nonjudgmental attitude and, before I knew it, we were inseparable. Then I left to pursue my rock star dreams—dreams she encouraged.

I got over Jaymes Grenier no problem. I never think about that little bow at the top of her pink lips, or the way her green eyes admired mine. Nope, I barely recall the way she fit so perfectly in my arms when I held her at night. The sweet way she would whisper she loved me has long faded from memory.

These are the lies I regularly tell myself in hopes of believing them one day. Yeah, I was told I’d get over my first love.

I didn’t. 

Derrick Masters marked me the moment we met back in ninth grade. He called me over—all bravado and bad boy mystery wrapped in a James Dean-esque package. Dark hair and blue eyes with a rebel without a cause charisma. He was everything I was warned about, but I couldn’t resist. I was his from that moment on.

His career took off almost as soon as he did. I knew it would. I just thought I would be beside him as his partner in crime, best friend, and lover. That’s what we had always been … before he left me behind to fend for myself.

Fend? Fight is more like it.

I’ve been fighting ever since. 

Fighting for survival.

Fighting for a better life in a world determined to keep me down.

I don’t have the luxury of letting my head live in the lure of La La Land. His dreams may have come true, but mine were extinguished. These days I fight for something bigger than me, bigger than we were ever meant to be.

When his dreams come crashing back into my reality, is this a second chance at that fairy tale ending or another heartbreak in the making?
