The story was ok. It has a lot of potential to be the beginning of a good series but the author needs to go beyond the cliché and flesh the character..Show More »s out beyond stereotypes. The voice actors were terrible. I couldn't quite believe how hilariously bad the male voice actor was. He sounds like a lispy nerd who is pretending to be cool. I laughed out loud whenever he was trying to sound tough or serious. He has no range whatsoever. I really can't believe they hired him. The female voice actor did get better as the book went on. She came across stiff and monotonous at times. I was extremely disappointed with both of them.
Ever since reading the 'Blood & Roses' series, I've wanted to get the full story of Alexis, Sloane's kidnapped sister. Finally, I got around to readin..Show More »g 'Rebel' after having it sit on my shelf for a while. Although it wasn't exactly what I expected, it was a fantastic story.
Despite my initial impression from the 'Blood & Roses' series, Alexis wasn't in the possession of the human traffickers for long. Kidnapped after witnessing a murder, she is auctioned off quickly. Luckily, she is purchased by the nephew of the man that she saw murdered. Her decision to try and help a stranger may have placed her in danger, but ultimately, it saved her also.
For most of this book, Alexis (aka Sophia) is trying to stay alive. She doesn't fully understand what it is that her latest captor wants from her. She just knows that she needs to keep her family safe, which means keeping her real identity a secret.
Once she figures out that her new "owner", Rebel, isn't going to rape her or pimp her out, she begins to get to know him. Despite her best efforts, she cannot deny that she has a strong attraction to the outlaw biker. Eventually, they act on their attraction.
Although I already knew many of the facts surrounding Alexis and Rebel's story from the 'Blood & Roses' series, this book began to fill in the details. My perception of Alexis changed drastically after reading this book. No longer, do I view her as a selfish, spoiled and uncaring person, as I did before. This book made me look at her actions from a different vantage point.
Overall, this was a great story! It did end with a big cliffhanger, so brace yourself. I listened to the audible version and the next book has not been released in that format yet. As soon as it is out, I'll be continuing this series.
