Stormy It's so funny and has an interesting plot and characters. There's a few sexy times but it's not overwhelming. You should definitely read it.

Hilarious, sexy and entertaining, that’s how I would describe Rebel if I could only use three words.

It’s the second time Elle Casey took me on a crazy journey filled with laughter, multiply swooning, off the charts sexual chemistry and even more LOL moments. Few months ago I’ve read Shine Not Burn and had a pretty darn good time with it, but Rebel? Rebel was not a good book. Nope. It was fanfuckingtastic-pick-me-up-from-the-floor-I-can’t-stop-laughing perfect. I had a blast reading this crazy,

Elle Casey has not failed me yet. Don't be fooled by the cover of this book 'Rebel' was everything I could have wanted from a hilariously entertaining new adult romance and I'm delighted that I finally read this novel and fell page over spine in love with everything about this book. You want funny, sexy and entertainment? Then you don't want to miss out, here are the rest of my thoughts ...

Rebel made me seriously



Which is one of my favorite things about Elle Casey's books. I loved Shine Not Burn and I missed the humor in By Degrees but it was back in Rebel.

Teagan was such a fun heroine. A little over the top? Eh...



Was the story 100% realistic?



But it was entertaining and I enjoyed it....and sometimes that's just what we need.

Rebel was Mr Cool...Mr Aloof...Mr Man of Mystery. But I was definitely intrigued by him.

Teagan AKA Queen of files was an "almost" college grad who lived a life a luxury from daddy but was NOT a spoiled brat. One phone call with news that her father is dead changes her cushy life. instead of whining, Teagan makes life HER bitch.
She gets her ass out and worms herself a job at Rebel Wheels as the Queen of files. (Don't dare call her a secretary). The way this girl gets her job is quite entertaining and tenacious. Teagan doesn't do well with the word "NO" She gets an apartment in the

This book had a ton of potential. It just fell flat for me.

At first Teagan's sense of humor was hilarious. Then it was kinda of immature. After a while, a bit annoying.

Rebel and Teagan said maybe 15 sentences to each other the whole book. They didn't "get together" until like 80%. There was a little drama and then bam the end.

I wouldn't call it a HEA because it was the most rushed relationship ever!

I know there are 2 more books but they are about Rebel's brothers not them, so I don't

I enjoyed it. Rebel was hot. There were some funny moments. It's NA. I do read it now and again. Some can be a hit, some can be a miss. Overall a good read.


Liked the brothers.


Sorry I cannot be more gushing about it.


I really wanted to find out the "mystery" about her dad's company but not sure if I am invested enough in the series to continue. I think Quin might annoy me a bit.

Best ab workout ever! Having a bad day? Think you are the Queen of social faux pax? Elle Casey is back with the remedy for anything negative that ails you! Has she written a classic for the ages? Seriously, I could read this over and over, actually, I read it twice because Rebel is pure chaotic entertainment. Sure, it starts on a sad note, but from there, it is uphill, trust me as we risk our own sanity to live inside the mind of Teagan Cross, former wealthy heir, currently unemployed, homeless ...more

The only reason I started this book was because I thought it was set in college.
It's not.
I mean yeah, the heroine is a college student. But the book is set in summer break so technically, it's not a college setting.
And the hero isn't a New Adult. (I mean he's a little old)
Nonetheless, I loved it and it was freaking hilarious with a touch of action and mystery.
We have our awesome heroine Teagan (or Teabag). She's a senior in USLA and she gets a phone call that changes her life. So she's forced to

Absolutely fricking hilarious, I laughed my arse off through most of this book - seriously it was that funny.

Teagan, a college senior has a life changing phone call that puts her in the path of the sexy, brooding, Dolph Lundgren lookalike Rebel.

Teagan ends up working for him and tries to fight her crush and keep it professional, after all she really needs the job.

Life is so unfair. Why can't he be fat and ugly? Hairy? Covered in warts? At least have a pancake butt or moobs for shits sake

“Taking care of you could never be an obligation. It’s privilege.”

This is the story of Teagan and Rebel. Teagan’s life changes after just a phone call. After it she becomes poor, homeless and jobless. Making the decision that she will not give up, she starts (a very weird) job hunting and manages to land a job at Rebel Wheels as a “Secretary? Assistant? Administrator? Janitor? Paperwork Assassin? Queen Of All She Can File?”. Yeah...well...something like that :D She manages to clean and

This is how present tense should be used, to create tension and urgency, and humor.

Rebel was very very Channing Tatum in my head.
Sweet, quiet, strong, sexy.

Just yum.

Reminded me of Fighting for Flight, with the mechanic/desperate young girl with daddy issues, etc.


His abs flex as he shifts his weight to his other foot. Oh lordy, lordy, lordy, get in my shorties.

This is no fumbling college boy. Rebel is a real man, and I know I’m in over my head.

I actually really enjoyed this. I think it helps that I frankly had kind of mediocre expectations going into it, but it was sweet and funny. I loved the characters, especially Rebel and his brothers. The book was narrated by the Teagan, and although I liked her, by the time the book was wrapping up some of her humor was becoming OTT to me. I usually love a book if the romance and the characters work for me, which was the case here, so I am glad I read it.

It's been a while since I've enjoyed a book so much that I read it in one setting. Teagan is a heroine full of sass and will keep you laughing the whole way through. She finds herself in hard times and stumbled across Rebel, who's a hardass who never quite seems to lose his edge. They say opposites attract, and it's especially true in this case. Although the other books in the series focus on different characters, the storyline of this sets up to continue in future books.

There were things about this book that I didn't love. I thought she should really be more interested in going after the mystery of her dad's death, but I get the why nots there. I wanted more Julio because he seems like a super cool dude and I wanted more Mick for the same reason. It's

So good. I loved this book from start to finish. It had me in hysterics so many times I lost count.

Teagan is now one of my favourite female characters, such a sassy chick with the most amazing attitude and way with words, her best friend Quin is just as great. Rebel is the strong silent type with a heart of gold for the people he cares about. The connection between the pair is instant but the romance isn't rushed.

I can't wait to read the next books which will be out soon!!

Very sweet story . Light as a feather.
'Q' aka CoCo
It's a fun, light read with some steamy parts thrown in. It definitely made me laugh because I am a sucker for good puns, and Teagan and Quin have some puntastic moments. It's a cute love story with a HEA, but for me, the incessant chatter was a bit distracting.

Rebel was for me a book filled with sexual chemistry, a hot boss and a little bit of a mystery.

The story begins with Teagan a bit of a spoilt little rich girl experiencing real life with a big old bang.
Her Father has passed away suddenly and all at once she is left with nothing (well not exactly nothing she gets a trust fund that she cant touch till she is 30 and as she is only 22 thats a long time to wait). Its all gone to her step mother who she cant ask for anything.

So she has to enter the
