5* Review: The Return of the Rebel – Jennifer Faye

The Return of the Rebel

‘The Return of the Rebel’ by Jennifer Faye was last week’s Friday read. Here’s what it’s about:

The guy from the wrong side of the tracks…

Being promoted should be a dream come true, only it means working closely with Cleo’s childhood crush, Jax Monroe. Jax may no longer be the rebel she remembers, but he still gets her heart racing like no other.

Jax cares too much about Cleo to let her get too close—but keeping his distance is proving impossible! As Jax reveals the extent of what he’s been through, will Cleo show him that some things are too precious to put off until tomorrow?

Return of the Rebel releases on 1 July 2014:

My Review

‘The Return of the Rebel’ is a lovely sweet romance with memorable, likeable characters and a lively plot with dangerous undercurrents.
Cleo the only girl in a family of ranchers knows their lifestyle is not for her. Las Vegas is the polar opposite of Hope Springs but Cleo weighed down by other people’s expectations and a tragic secret is determined to make a new life there. Serendipity brings her face to face with Jax her teenage crush and now the client she must impress to succeed.
Jax left Hope Springs without a backward glance, anxious to leave behind tragic memories and the feeling of never being good enough. Luck and hard work made him wealthy beyond his expectations but illness and an impending court case leave him more vulnerable than he would choose.
Danger forces Cleo into close proximity with Jax rekindling her teenage crush into love. Unfortunately Jax’s inner doubts and the fallout of his secrets jeopardize their fledgling relation.
Powerful romance, great characters and a strong thread of suspense make this story a pleasure to read.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Wolf Sirens – Forbidden – Discover the Legend Tina Smith – Friday Read

My Friday Read is the first of the Wolf Sirens books by Tina Smith – Forbidden – Discover the Legend.

Wolf Sirens Thumbnail COVER

This is a paranormal romance aimed at young adults with elements of romantic suspense.

The Mystical Bond, the Fatal Allure … of Hunter & Prey
Misunderstood seventeen year old Lila Crain unwillingly moves to the foreboding town of Shade, prepared to face her punishment – Shade High. But she can’t begin to anticipate the life-altering events that lie in wait for her.
The dark and charismatic Reid has a wolfish grin and amber eyes that would make any girl blush and he has his sights set on the new girl in school. Reid’s stunning friends – including icy top dog Sam – invite Lila into their clique. Suspicious, yet flattered by their attention, she lets down her guard and answers the intriguing call like a moth to a flame.
Thrillingly introduced to the local nightlife by the enigmatic group, Lila finally feels like she belongs. But her newly found friendships threaten to turn sour when she unwittingly develops feelings for the leader’s off-limits boyfriend, Sky. Tensions rise further when a quirky local named Cresida warns Lila to stay away from the clique at all costs. Undeterred, she is irresistibly drawn to uncover the truth behind their mysterious lifestyle. Lila unwittingly starts off a chain of events that will forever alter fate for both hunter and hunted as she learns they have been waiting for her…
Inspired by the legend of the femme fatale goddess, Artemis, Wolf Sirens is a compelling gothic masterpiece of paranormal romance.
