Blog Tour + Review // Rebel by Callie Hart


Synopsis


Rebel and Sophia's story.

The first of a three part series. This novel contains a small snippet which has already been released in the Owned: An Alpha Anthology, however it is followed by a full story installment.

Sophia

Sometimes, you don't mean to become another person. Sometimes the choice is made for you, and pretending is the only thing that keeps you going. When Alexis Romera is taken and her kidnappers find her fake ID in her purse, she must become Sophia in order to keep her family safe. Revealing her real identity to the man she's sold to would be easy enough, but can she trust him? Hell bent on avenging the murder of his uncle, Rebel doesn't seem all that interested in playing things safe.

In fact, nothing about the secretive, dark and brooding MC president seems safe at all.

Rebel

What do you do when the man who raised you is murdered, and the only witness is kidnapped girl who's being sold as a sex slave? You buy her, of course. As president to the most powerful motorcycle club in America, Rebel isn't lacking in power. There are strings the man can pull, and entire criminal organisations and corporate businesses alike would fall to their knees. However, along with such power comes intense interest. The DEA have their eye fixed solely on the MC...and they're just waiting for Rebel to trip up.

Getting Sophia to testify is the only way to bring the Los Oscuros cartel down. The beautiful, dark haired, dark eyed woman is belligerent and uncooperative and unlikely to bend to his will, but Rebel has a few tricks up his sleeve to make her compliant--he'll charm her until she's bending over backwards to please him.

Of course, falling for her might cause a few hiccups along the way...

Review

Rebel, Rebel, Rebel ... he's definitely not what I expected especially when you're the President of the Widow Makers MC! But to say the least, I 100% love what I've read about you!

This book is Part 1 in a 3 part series, and this entire book pretty much sets up whats to come. And it will keep you guessing and wondering, what will happen in the rest of this story. Unfortunately, a lot of your questions will not be answered in this book and will be left with a cliffhanger.

I will say that it definitely took me some time to get through this book, it captivated me in the beginning and had it's lull moments in the middle, but then it picked right back up. There isn't a whole lot that happens, but there's plenty of character development with the hero and heroine. Unlike most MC books that I've read, this isn't one of those cut to the chase, get down to business kind of story. 

I love Rebel and I really, really want to explain all the reasons why, but it would give a lot about his character away. He has so many elements/layers to him and I really enjoyed that we got to see the different sides of him. He's not a complete douche bag has a little bit of a vulnerable side, but don't go shouting that out to the world.

Sophia is a feisty one! I'm not really sure, if she gradually gained her strength throughout the story or if she already had it. She's definitely put through quite the wringer and trust doesn't exactly come easy for her, after she's been kidnapped. Can you blame the girl?! I love that she doesn't hold back and would be more than happy to speak her mind freely.

Sophia and Rebel complement each so well, and you'll love their dialogue! And the sexual tension is ALWAYS at an ultimate high, wait 'til they finally relieve themselves ;) H-O-T!

I'm so eager to read part 2 because I think where things will really start to pick up. Rebel has a lot of sh*t on his plate and it's seriously a clusterf*ck! I'm already making assumptions and I'd say a "blast from the past" is an entertaining though, but I could be WAY off.

MY RATING :

Excerpt


“You gonna sit down or what?”

I sit down. Arguing with him would be futile. We sit there, side by side, staring off down the arrow-straight road, and for a moment I don’t hate him. He pulls a cell phone out of his pocket and taps something into it, and then he turns to face me, frowning slightly.

“You believe in vengeance?”

“You mean like revenge?”

He shakes his head. “Revenge is a selfish act. Retaliation for something. Vengeance is a different thing altogether. It’s about obtaining justice, usually for someone who can’t claim it for themselves.”

This is an odd line of questioning but I decide I’ll bite. Maybe I wouldn’t if he were being a jerk like he was a couple of hours ago, but that’s not what’s happening. He’s pensive, the live wire that apparently runs through him dulled for the moment. “I don’t know,” I say. “Probably, in that case.”

“What if I simplified the question?

What if I say, do you believe in justice?

“Then, yes, I do believe.”
