Publisher's Summary

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 of 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....

Book one in the Dead Man's Ink Series. This audiobook contains strong ties with the Blood & Roses series.

Rebel is a contemporary romance story with occasional dark themes that some people might find confronting.

Story was ok but the actors were TERRIBLE

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 characters 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.

Could have been better

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was not a waste, but there are definitely some issues with the wording, ridiculous and sometimes ahead of itself. Also the narrator must be changed.

If you’ve listened to books by Callie Hart before, how does this one compare?

This is my first book by Callie Hart.

What three words best describe Walles Hamonde and Kelly Burke ’s voice?

It was as if the book was written by two (2) different people. Sorry but the male voice did not deliver. The voice was took weak, slow and with a lisp. Very unbelievable and it threw the entire character off for me. When Kelly spoke I liked that version of rebel better. She could have narrated the entire book as she did all the voices better.

Do you think Rebel needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, with new narrator or only female narration. The plot is there but it needs to be told better getting to the good parts. Its as if they are trying to be the characters instead of actually being them.

Any additional comments?

I prefer when the opposite character describes the other as so not to say "I am a bad ass but I do not say this to be cocky" Ridiculous. Let the other character describe them and it would come across way better then the character telling you how great/bad/smart etc. they are. Having them do this with such a weak voice and a lisp made it so unbelievable.

Narration Ruined This Story

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not the Audible edition. Male narrator talks too fast, and in no way comes across as a hot, sexy biker. Download the sample and see for yourself. Kelly did a great job with the female voice. This rating shouldn't reflect poorly upon her efforts.

Would you be willing to try another one of Walles Hamonde and Kelly Burke ’s performances?

No for Walles but yes for Kelly.

Great story. Terrible narration

I've read/listened to several of Callie Hart's books and, up to this point, the narrators have been suited for their roles. But I cannot for the life of me understand why they chose the voice of Rebel. It's not that he's bad at his job, he just sounds like he's 14 and in no way does he make a convincing criminal or MC president. If I wasn't invested in this world and these characters, I would have given up within the first few chapters.

Great book but...

The book was a great read, or listen. Jelly Burke was wonderful but walles has a teenage boy kind of voice that really doesn’t give the kind of presence a MC Pres would possess.

Great story terrible narrator

I loved the story. However, the male narrator just ruined it for me. The female narrator could've and should've just carried the entire story herself. It would've been better.

Great story

Overall this was a great book. The female narrator however, not so much. It sounded like she was putting too much effort into her reading making it sound teeny boppery when this was such a deep and emotional story.

good story but performance meh

The voice actors were so / so. I mean after listening to the blood & roses series, this doesn't compare in performance. However the story is killer and I highly recommend you give it a go. Can't wait for the next installment.

Nope, nope, nope

Sorry guys not a fan of this book. It was tough going, weak characters, reads like a US bikie TV show. Not for me unfortunately.
