Recommends it for: any romance reader
** I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review***

well I may have begged also!!!

This series is one of my favourite Contemporary romance series, I adore AC Wilsons writing style, she brings normal everyday characters to life, and there being a country feel, horses and such in the theme is all the better, I love horses as well as reading!

Book 3 is about Nora Johnson-White big sis to Matt and Garrett, a Rebel as a young girl, she soon had to grow up after a summer

I have to say that this was my favorite book of the series. I have a love for Nora, I guess her outside of the box image and personality are what draw me to her. There are so many layers to Nora that she is having a hard time even knowing who she is. The one thing Nora is for sure about is that she is completely unhappy with her life. She married her Long time boyfriend Randy and couldn't be more unhappy with her decision. Randy and Nora hardly ever speak anymore and don't even sleep in the same ...more
The third book in the Black Hills series, Black Hills Rebel returns the reader to Hot Springs, South Dakota. Familiar characters from the first two books make an appearance as well. The first in the series was about Matt and Andy, the second Rayne and Garrett, and this third is about Matt and Garrett's sister Nora and her husband Randy. As always, Travis, the father of Matt, Garrett and Nora, serves as the guiding voice of wisdom. Throughout the series, Nora was a character I grew to like quite ...more

Cowboys, country music, and the Black Hills of South Dakota - PERFECTION!

I've now read all three books in the Black Hills series and although I thought Black Hills Angel (book 1) was my favorite, Black Hills Rebel is giving that a run for its money!

Nora is unhappy. She's been married to Randy for a few years now but because of a secret that she's had for 7 years, she's unable to truly find happiness.

When it finally is all too much, when she can't take the pretending, the lying, or the sadness a

Black Hills Rebel is the third book in the Black Hills Series. These books are standalones, and can be completely read on their own, but, let me tell you, you won’t want to read just one.

Set in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota, Black Hills Rebel is Nora’s book, and her quest for happiness in her life. She’s been married to Randy for a little bit, but she is not happy. She is a mess. Nora has a secret that is draining her and seeing her high school sweet heart is drudging up feelings th

A.C. Wilson just keeps getting better! This is the 3rd book in the Black Hills series and quickly became my favorite! Nora, ever the rebel, always lets her mind lead her heart. Her husband, Randy, is more the passive type. Which has put them in a bad place when an unexpected person from the past suddenly is in the picture again. Nora must decide which path to take. Randy must decide if what he has with Nora is worth fighting for, and if so, he has to figure out how to stand his ground with her. ...more

I was given a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.

You will take one crazy ride in this book. Nora has been keeping a secret for seven years and she just can't keep it any longer. She has been unhappy for a long time and can't seem to figure out what will make her happy. Will revealing her secret make her feel better or will it make everything worse? Will it be her husband, Randy, or will it be Colt, her old flame, that will help her figure out where her happiness is? You will hav

AC Wilson is AMAZING!
This being the 3rd book of the series its easily my favorite! (Until her next book comes out! lol)

This story hit home with me because I feel for Nora being stuck in her life looking at it from the outside!
Nora and Randy are more like roommates then a married couple!
Randy has to decide if Nora is worth fighting for when Colt comes back into the picture! And Nora has to decide to run with the feelings she has for Colt or stay with Randy? Decisions, decisions! Its a push, pull

Nora just wants to be in love and be loved. Little did she know she was but she felt very lost and held in Everything so others wouldn't be hurt by them. When a band shows up to play at The Well everything changes. Nora is unsure what or who she wants. Secrets are held tight and Nora,is falling apart. Randy tries to be who she wants and needs but trying to get her to fall in love with him all over but nothing ever goes as planned. Great Book. Love this series.

Nora's story was amazing. She is married to Randy, but thinks she is still in love with Colt, with whom she shares a son. Reading this was kind of like being on an emotional roller-coaster. Most of the time I was still trying to guess the outcome. I would definitely recommend this book and suggest that you keep the tissues close.

By far the best of the series yet!!
Reading Nora's story was heart warmimg. I had no idea which way the story would go. This was a real page flicker (Kindle).
A perfect book.

I read this one after reading Black Hills Angel (which I was in two minds about liking.) I did find the author much improved from the first novel (yes, I skipped the second one) - the writing was much tighter, flowed well and the story line was more interesting. But again I had issues with the heroine Nora, whom I liked in the first book. I found her more and more frustrating as the story went on. I found myself just wanting to yell - make a decision already! Randy was OK - again I was frustrate ...more

This is Nora's story. Nora has been married to Randy a hot cowboy for 2 years, she has a 7 year old son with Colt a hot country singer. Nora's marriage is on the rocks because she can't stop thinking about Colt and telling him about his son and hoping to be a family. You will be on an emotional rollercoaster with Nora and you will do the ugly cry. Who will Nora end up with? Will she finally have the family she has always wanted? This is a must read and I will definitely be catching up on the ser ...more

***I was given this book in exchange for an honest review***

I did like this book, i just struggled with the story a bit. I liked Nora from the first two books, but in the beginning of this one she came across to me as selfish and spoilt and i found myself disliking her. Maybe that was because i loved Randy, he is sweet, caring and a hot cowboy.

The writing is good, the story is easy to read and I'll definately be continuing with the series.

Wow this was AWESOME. I felt so much for Randy and Nora I wanted them to be happy. This is real life and the author pulls you in having you feel what the characters feel. I felt as if I was nora. Great writing wonderful story.
