I met my muse at fifteen. I’d just gotten busted for smoking behind the school gymnasium. She inspired me with her laugh and nonjudgmental attitude and, before I knew it, we were inseparable. Then I left to pursue my rock star dreams—dreams she encouraged.

I got over Jaymes Grenier no problem. I never think about that little bow at the top of her pink lips, or the way her green eyes admired mine. Nope, I barely recall the way she fit so perfectly in my arms when I held her at night. The sweet way she would whisper she loved me has long faded from memory.

These are the lies I regularly tell myself in hopes of believing them one day. Yeah, I was told I’d get over my first love.

I didn’t. 

Derrick Masters marked me the moment we met back in ninth grade. He called me over—all bravado and bad boy mystery wrapped in a James Dean-esque package. Dark hair and blue eyes with a rebel without a cause charisma. He was everything I was warned about, but I couldn’t resist. I was his from that moment on.

His career took off almost as soon as he did. I knew it would. I just thought I would be beside him as his partner in crime, best friend, and lover. That’s what we had always been … before he left me behind to fend for myself.

Fend? Fight is more like it.

I’ve been fighting ever since. 

Fighting for survival.

Fighting for a better life in a world determined to keep me down.

I don’t have the luxury of letting my head live in the lure of La La Land. His dreams may have come true, but mine were extinguished. These days I fight for something bigger than me, bigger than we were ever meant to be.

When his dreams come crashing back into my reality, is this a second chance at that fairy tale ending or another heartbreak in the making?


OMG! How in the HELL have I only read two books from this phenomenal author? Seriously have I been living under a rock for the past few years…

Something I am sure you’ve noticed about me through my reviews is the fact that I LOVE a good rockstar, single parent and/or second chance romance story and WOW does The Rebellion by S.L. Scott deliver all of that and so much more!

I devoured this beautifully captivating story in less than two hours and was left with the ultimate book hangover. This book was AMAZING and I absolutely adored every single moment of it. Derrick and Jaymes (aka Jamie to everyone else) story was breathtaking, filled with love and a whole lot of suspense that left me on the edge of my seat until the very end. The alternating POV’s was perfect for this story and then that ONE surprising POV had me gasping in shock. Let’s just say I was not expecting that! And then that ending…

If you are looking for a fantastic 5+ star read (that really should be a THOUSAND star one) then look now more because this is the book for you! Now to go back and read the rest of this STANDALONE series!
