Rebellious is the 2nd book in the True Brothers MC series. It can be read as a standalone no problem. I didn't read book 1 and I had no problem following Reb and Emily's story. Rebellious was a pretty good read but I felt like it was missing something. Depth! I think it needed to be longer and then I would have been able to enjoy it more. It kinda felt rushed and more superficial. I would have liked to have gotten more in depth with the main couple and their relation

All Emily Clark wants to do when she gets home from work is pop a couple pills to help with her headache and relax in front of the TV. Unfortunately life has other plans for her when she finds a neighbor's son sitting on the front steps of their building with a bag of junk food. Knowing Tucker doesn't have the best mother and wanting to avoid calling the cops and having Tucker go into foster care, they set out to find Tucker's dad. This leads Emily to the True Brothers MC clubhouse and REB, Tuck

Great second book.

So excited to see Jess's friend Emily from the first book get her HEA. Reb is the prez of the True Brothers who we also met in the first book (and his soon to be ex-wife who a serious bunch of cray-cray). They were great together plus really hot in the bedroom. I loved how sweet the big gruff biker was with Emily. Tucker is a great kid despite who his mom is. This book takes place after Jess and Zag's book but before the epilogue. Finally find out why Em

I was so excited when I got this book! Gillian Archer left an impression with the first book, Ruthless. I'm finding that I'm a huge fan of the True Brothers MC. Zag from Ruthless is a tough man to beat and he'll probably always be my favorite, but Rebel sure came close. He's the Prez, the top dog at True Brothers MC and that alone is hawt! The fact that he is described as huge and built more like a football player cinched it for me. Shallow, I know. I mentioned in my review of Ruthless that I ho ...more

Big bad biker and little librarian, it doesn’t get any better than this. This is what my kryptonite looks and tastes like. I loved it almost as much as the first book. Strong alpha hero, motorcycle club, sexy times, more of the secondary characters from book one and an eight year old. I may have found a new favorite author.

DNF at 80%- I've gotten pickier and picker about the MC reads I spend my time on. I knew pretty early on this wasn't going to be stellar but in the end I just couldn't get through it. No real issue with the writing, just overall pretty meh with a side of yawn and a sprinkle of cheese. It looks like I'm in the minority here but I just didn't like it.

This was not as good as the first book of the series. I didn't really like Reb and Emily well I just don't know what to say.

I just didn't feel the chemistry between them. There was no spark. They kinda felt forced instead of destined for each other. Emily would go on and on about him being controlling and harsh, but just fall back into bed with him without even a blink of an eye. Why even go there then?

There is lots of sex, but again I didn't connect with the main characters so it wasn't so hot

Rebellious is the second of the True Brothers MC series, and I actually have an ARC of Ruthless as well, but somehow, I read this first. I enjoyed myself, so I don't think there will be any trouble for me by not reading these in order.

This book starts a few months before the epilogue in Ruthless takes place which helped explain one thing that had me confused during the epilogue. This book had so much going on, Reb was separated from Rhonda and trying to divorce her but they had to work out custody of Tucker first, even after that nasty comment that Rhonda had made about Reb not being Tucker's father (biotch) in Ruthless. Emily is the epitome of a "Good Girl" even when she wants nothing more to do than go into her house and re ...more

I think that there might be something seriously wrong with me. I'm trying to figure out why I'm in love with these True Brothers so much considering that don't exactly "follow the rules" of the law. I mean, I'm down for bad boys, but they take it just a step further than my normal comfort zone. But I love them. I do. I have actually set a small space in the corner of my heart for each of these Brothers, faults and all.

This is the second book in this series. I was lucky to read the first book, Ruthless (True Brothers MC #1). I thoroughly enjoyed that book and looked forward to reading more of the True Brothers MC. Rebellious was at least 4.5 stars for me. This book takes place prior to the epilogue of the first book. With that said, it is a standalone and can be read independently. I don't suggest that because the H, Reb, is introduced in Ruthless and I absolutely fell

Gillian Archer was a new to me author when I read the first book in this series but I loved her take on the MC genre and she has made me look forward to the rest of this series. I'm happy to say that REBELLIOUS was just as much fun to read.

Emily Clark has a soft spot for children especially those neglected, due to her own tumultuous childhood and finding her neighbor's son apparently left to his own devices is enough to ignite her ire and fuel her match into the lion's lair, in this case the clu

I enjoyed the 1st book in the series, and I admit I was a little surprised the 2nd was Reb's...I kind of thought we would have to wait a little longer to see how everything worked out with him, and with the situation you catch a glimpse of at the end of the 1st book.

“I felt the vibrations of the bike clear into my soul. Something about this-either the bike or the biker in my arms-felt undeniably right. Like a missing chunk inside me had been patched.”

“One thing you can always count on with me, baby, is that I don’t break my word. Ever.”

Rebellious is the second book in the True Brothers MC series, but can totally be read as a stand-alone. Told from dual points of view, Rebellious follows the story of Reb and Emily. Emily’s life has never been easy.
Emily is Jessica's best friend. Coincidently she knows Tucker's Reb son and the child is always left by his bitch mother alone. So, Emily as the good girl she is even she wants just to lay down and watch some TV goes to help him, because she is nice.

Reb and Emily already know each other-that's discover later but seems that have seen each other now. It was really confuse. Reb and Emily relationship is very quickly. Emily whom has suffer abuse now is dating a angry biker who just say what she can

The storyline wasn't always feasible, but the sex was pretty hot. I don't think you can find a more alpha male than the president of a motorcycle club. This was a pretty good read, and I am already planning on recommending this to some that I know enjoy the genre.

Reb sometimes just has to shut down his woman's ideas, "Reb glared at Emily. “No effing way are you naming my ***k. And definitely not some lame-*** name like Albert.

He is hard, ruthless and unapologetic. Emily is the shy librarian that still feels the effects of an abusive relationship from years ago. Reb scares her yet at the same time she feels safe with him. She is cautious and so is he. He is getting out of a toxic relationship and is not looking

I'm not a fan of "insta-love" which I found this book had too much of. While the first book moved very quickly, I thought there was enough written to really bring the couple together. This book didn't have that same
