Review: THE REBELLION by S.L. Scott

the rebellion

A fiercely compelling and poignant nail-biter that exudes intense and dangerous love!

Young love transforms into a lost love that casts a somber shadow on the lives of Derrick and Jaymes. Growing up in an unsafe and deadly environment, the struggles and sacrifices each character shoulders is thoroughly devastating and makes your heart break for them. A destructive life of corruption and violence looms in the near future for them, but what they don’t realize is that no matter how far away they are from it, it’s still very much a part of them.

Second-chance romances shine light and optimism where you least expect to find it. Derrick and Jaymes portray two strong, resilient, and remarkable characters that have proved second chances are worth the risk. Their undying love for one another during dark times in their lives truly enraptures the reader. Raw honesty and trust above all else can make or break a relationship, and these characters strive to do whatever it takes to make this chance work. A life without each other’s love is not an option.

The Rebellion was utterly brilliant! Flawless writing coupled with a profound story line makes this book a must read of 2017! I fell in love with this series from the very beginning, and my heart has grown only further with the rest of the books. The Rebellion shows us how true love has no bounds, and the risks one takes for those that matter the most…even in regards to one’s own happiness.

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?
