I loved the whole story from the very beginning. The plot was interesting and the characters complex but not complicated. I like the fact that the boo..Show More »k is not concentrated only on the two main characters and their relationship. I admire their struggles and ways to reach their own goals. They are truly human beings like everybody else - with their strong and weak sides. The idea of the casual hook up is not unusual it the romance books, but I have to admit that in this book it was a bit twisted and added a new shade to this kind of experiences. The original idea made it more unique and I was captivated till the very end. I am sorry that it's already finished. I hope that the Audible will soon share the other books from this series (I'm not sure if they are already written).
If you saw my review of Reckless, you know that I fell head over heels in love with the Renegades. In Reckless we got glimpses of Wes and Rubi's flirt..Show More »atious nature and I was instantly intrigued. Well... Rebel upped the game in the Renegades series and absolutely blew me away. As in, if I had jumped on the bandwagon to name my favorite books of 2014, Rebel would have made it in the top 10. Easily. Rebel solidified this series as strangely unique and mind blowing. Skye Jordan wraps up freaking hot chemistry with an intellectually stimulating story and throws in continuous laugh out loud moments in one amazing little package.
When we catch up to the Renegades, Rubi and Wes have become best friends but, with a quirky dynamic. They are not above flirting to that dangerous edge that separates friends from lovers. But, that's as far as Rubi will let it go. With no basis for having a functional and long-lived relationship she refuses to muddle up what she has with Wes. Losing him would devastate her more than anything. Wes, however, is a head-strong country man who can't give up on trying to push for more when he know they would be combustible together. With neither one willing to back down it is a push and pull game that will drive you crazy until it makes you fan yourself, because when these two give in... it's hotter than hell. Aside from the raunchy, orgasmic bliss Rubi and Wes find in one another they have also found another common ground. Rubi is a genius when it comes to technology and Wes, a genius when it comes to engineering. So they put their heads together to come up with a solution for Wes' brother who has just underwent surgery and may have trouble walking again. Along the way, they end up meeting each other's family and see just how different they were raised. It is a constant battle for Wes to convince Rubi they could have a future together, and a heartbreaking journey for Rubi to come to accept that.
Rebel is one of those books that's worthy of sitting on my iPod as well as my Kindle. The overall concept may have been told before but, the real meat of the story is refreshing and completely captivating. Wes stole my heart with his charm and dirty mouth. And Rubi had me has her "Yeah! girl" from the first page. They both show so much passion and love but, still have a perfect blend of quippy remarks and real emotions, as well. Skye Jordan weaves an irresistibly seductive web around her readers and there will be no denying your love for this book or its characters. Rebel is a must listen for anyone who loves a fantastically written, steamy and engaging story!
Piper Goodeve was outstanding again with the delivery of the story.
