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 reading '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

Being a huge fan of Ms Hart's Blood & Roses series, it's really a no-brainer that I wouldn't get my grabby hands on this spinoff series the moment it was announced! For those who've read the B&R series, the name Rebel will not come as a stranger to you and if you think you've got him figured out back then, the first instalment in the Dead Man's Ink will prove

I've been intrigued by Rebel since we got a glimpse of him in the Blood & Roses series. From that series we learned he was the President of a mc and not someone you wanted to make mad at you.

Well, color me intrigued and hooked. Rebel is the first book from Callie Hart's Dead Man's Ink series. This is a spin off of her Blood & Roses series, and while the series is connected, there is no need to read Blood & Roses for readers to enjoy this book. I haven't read her other series but I still enjoyed this one. And just based from my experience with this book, I am definitely reading the Blood & Roses series.

While this book follows a mostly common captive story, it's still

Rebel is the first of 3 in the Dead Man's Ink series and can be read before, after or independently to the Blood & Roses series.

Since being introduced to Rebel and Sophie in Callie Harts' previous series, Blood & Roses, I have been so excited to read about this couple and I wasn't disappointed.

Rebel is about power, fear, trust and most of all, vengeance.

The Widow Makers MC club is the most powerful in America and a little different, I love their equality ethos, the way they like to blend in, their moral code and rules. They’re criminals but they have a heart, especially Rebel, their President, he sets the tone perfectly. Rebel seeks justice for his uncle whilst rival criminals want their gun and drugs business and will stop at nothing to achi

This is why I love Callie Hart! Rebel is fast paced, sexy and leaves you guessing.

“Revenge is a selfish act. Retaliation for something. Vengeance is a different thing altogether. It’s about obtaining justice, usually for someone who can’t claim it for themselves.”

We first meet Alexis when she is walking home from visiting her father. She is minding her own business when a dying man approaches her asking for help, seconds later the perpetrators he is running from confront them

This is a spinoff of Callie Hart's AWESOME The Blood & Roses Series Box Set. I'm a HUGE fan of Ms. Hart and Zeth Mayfair is just ALL that!!

This is like a prequel to the B&R series and can be read before or after that series. Either way, it really compliments the B&R series as it gives you more history and depth into some of main characters.

This is the story of Rebel, the president of the Widow Makers MC and Alexis (Sophia) Romera. No surprise as Callie had me from the beginning. It star

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 revenging the mu

There's a new book boyfriend in town, and his name is REBEL!!!! He's mine, but don't worry, he has a few hot friends too!!

So if you've read Callie's previous Blood & Roses series, you think you have a lot of Rebel's story worked out right? WRONG!!

This book snatches you up and Los Oscuros will take you hostage right along with Alexis/ Sophia from the word GO!! It is a full-length, so longer than Callie's previous books but, regardless, I read this puppy in one sitting.

Despite the fact that the Dead Man's Ink series are a standalone series, for the full impact of this novel I recommend reading first the Blood & Roses series. They can be read separately but personally the novel Rebel wouldn't have had the same impact if I wouldn't have read the Blood & Roses series first.

Yet another Callie Hart hero that has captured my heart! Rebel is about the infamous Widow Makers MC president. This tells about his past and how he became who he is, and also about the events that led to him meeting Sophie/Alexis.

Though he started out as an honorable man in the Marines, Rebel now runs a ruthless and dangerous motorcycle club out of New Mexico.

Alexis Romero was a dutiful daughter from a respectable family. One unfortunate night she found herself at the wrong place and time where she became a witness to a murder. She ended up being taken, given new identity as Sophia, and eventually sold to Rebel, the President of the Widow Makers MC who needed her for his own personal vendetta.

Speechless...literally, I can’t think of any other words to describe Rebel by Callie Hart but truly epic and amazing!!! Rebel happens to be the first book that I have read from this author and it definitely won’t be my last.

Heart pounding, gritty, raw, dark, sensual, and suspenseful. Those are the words that comes into my mind when I think of Rebel. This book was in your face raw and suspenseful and I absolutely loved every moment of this

As many of you know from the Blood & Roses series, Rebel is the President of the Widow Makers Motorcycle Club. His physical presence is magnetic: dark hair, ice blue eyes, tall and muscular build. He also has a reputation as an outlaw for running drugs and weapons; however, there is much more dimension to Rebel than just a club patch.

I have to give Callie Hart some props here. She set the bar VERY high with the original Blood & Roses series, and I was so nervous to read this book as a result. But let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed with Rebel, AT ALL.

I LOVED Sophia (Alexis) and Rebel. The banter between the two was so funny and yet beneath the humor, you could literally FEEL the sexual tension building between these two. You want them to get together so bad; and not only to reap the
First off, I will say that I LOVE Rebel! If I could collect book boyfriends...he most definitely would be in my collection! The trouble is, I was honestly a tad disappointed with this book. I had high hopes for it, and have been waiting for it to come out. The main reason is that Rebel and Sophia took what seemed like forever to actually share page time together. When they finally did, there wasn't a ton of sexy fact, the deed wasn't done until almost the end. Sigh..Now, those of you ...more
