The black-leather-clad biker who just roared up on his Harley doesn’t resemble any single father Emily Clark has ever known. But as she watches “Reb” bonding with his son, Emily realizes there’s a lot more to this bad boy than his alpha-male attitude or his sinful good looks. And when Reb takes an interest in her, there’s no way she can resist his surprisingly tender touch. The one thing Emily won’t give up is her hard-won independence.
As president of the True Brothers MC, Reb owes a sacred debt of loyalty to the club, but his first priority is making sure that his son grows up right. Pursuing an unexpected affair with Emily is a close second. Then a violent stalker threatens her life, and this unconventional guardian angel really turns up the heat. Nobody messes with Reb, or anyone under his protection. Trouble is, how’s he supposed to defend Emily when she insists on going it alone? He’s willing to put his life on the line for her. Now, maybe, he needs to open his heart.
“I felt the vibrations of the bike clear into my soul. Something about this-either the bike or the biker in my arms-felt undeniably right. Like a missing chunk inside me had been patched.”
“One thing you can always count on with me, baby, is that I don’t break my word. Ever.”
Rebellious is the second book in the True Brothers MC series, but can totally be read as a stand-alone. Told from dual points of view, Rebellious follows the story of Reb and Emily. Emily’s life has never been easy. She’s worked hard for everything that she has and wants nothing more to be independent. The last thing she planned for was Reb. This unlikely pair cross paths when Emily finds Reb’s son left home alone. From the moment these two meet, sparks fly and the connection is instant. Emily isn’t looking for love when she meets Reb, but their chemistry can’t be denied…..As Prez of the True Brothers MC, Reb’s life revolves around his club. The only thing more important than his club is his son. When Emily blows into his life, she turns his whole world upside down…..
Overall, I thought this book was an ok read. It was a pretty quick read for me and kept me entertained. I liked Emily right away. I loved knowing that she came from a complicated past and I loved her vulnerability. She was a lot tougher than I think most would give her credit for and I loved the way she cared about those close to her. Reb was everything that I was looking for in a badass biker. He was tough, alpha and wasn’t afraid to go after what he wanted. Even though Reb and Emily’s story was a case of insta-love, I think it worked pretty well for them. I thought they had good chemistry and I liked the pull they had for one another.
Like I said, Rebellious was a fun and entertaining read. It had plenty of drama, action and lots of sexy good times. There were a few little bumps here and there with the writing, but I never once wanted to put it down. It kept my interest the entire time, and the twists and turns kept me on my toes. I think this series has a ton of good potential and I would definitely be open to checking out more from this author in the future.
