5 *swoon worthy stars*

The Rebellion by S.L. Scott was such a good read.

The writing was well done, the storyline held my attention all throughout the book.
Derrick & Jaymes were likable, relatable characters that I easily connected with.
I loved watching them reconnect and go after their second chance at love. These two truly deserved their happily ever after.
I loved Derrick & Jaymes!


The Rebellion is one of those books that will stay with you for a long time, definitely will be having a

"Life can be pretty damn sweet if I look at the bright side. The only problem with my bright side these days is that my head is overrun with memories of a girl I left with a broken heart and out of tune guitar."

Full of heart and heartbreak, The Rebellion is a second chance romance between a sexy, sweet rock star and the high school sweetheart he left behind. Derrick Masters jetted off to Hollywood, running away from one thing to run toward another. The casualty of that war was the love of his

A fiercely compelling and poignant nail-biter that exudes intense and dangerous love!

Young love transforms into a lost love that casts a somber shadow on the lives of Derrick and Jaymes. Growing up in an unsafe and deadly environment, the struggles and sacrifices each character shoulders is thoroughly devastating and makes your heart break for them. A destructive life of corruption and violence looms in the near future for them, but what they don't realize is that no matter how far away they are
Very Dull :(

I don't know what to say about this other than it bored me to no end. I read the first two books in these series and wether you liked them or not they were definitely not boring. They were angsty (some say OTT), but were definitely entertaining. So I was expecting something similar. But this just fell flat for me.
I don't even have the energy to write a long review, so I'll just say that both MC were extremely dull, they didn't make me feel anything. I neither liked them nor disliked

No one writes swoon-worthy second chance romances quite like S.L. Scott. In the latest installment of The Hard to Resist Series, we get Derrick story. Derrick's story is unlike any of the other's that we've seen in this series so far. Derrick's story was EVERYTHING!! His story is one f

First time reading a book by S.L. Scott & it won't be the last. A second chance love story with dreamy sexy hot rocker Derrick Masters & his first love and muse Jaymes Grenier. Great story telling from beginning to end. I could not put this book down.
4 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I am giving this book a 4 rating because
I was able to overlook the flaws in the
story and just fall in love with Derrick.

Derrick is the lead guitar for one of the
biggest bands in the world. He did not
get to where he is without paying a huge
price, his love Jayme's. Derrick and
Jayme's get the second chance that she
almost lost everything for, and that he
yearned for from afar. What made me
really enjoy this book was their romance,
the love they always had for each other.

The men of The Resistance stole my heart from the first book. Rockers with heart. The Rebellion by S.L. Scott gives us Derrick Masters’ story. A story about second chances, hope and redemption.

Derrick is living out his dreams. He is a full member of The Resistance, the hottest band around, with the fame and fortune that come with it. But even though to others he has everything he could ever want, there is something missing. Or rather someone. The woman he walked away from years ago.

You know it's bittersweet writing this review. I've actually sat for a few days and have NOT wanted to write this review. For total selfish reasons. Let me explain.

See I buy a book, give it a read, leave a review and move onto the next. With this book I bought it, read it and didn't want to write a review because I didn't want to move on!!!!!

S.L Scott has written one of my absolute fave rocker series EVER. First she gave us Johnny, then Dex, then Kaz (OH MY GOD KAZ!!). And now we have DERRICK MA

I generously received this ARC from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review...

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 that and much more!
Rock star.

This book was pretty good but so drawn out. Found myself skipping pages. What wasn't drawn out was good with excitement and drama. I liked the idea of the story as well. What I didn't get was how easily he walked away and never came back. How he had no problem going from groupie to groupie but she was always on his mind. I don't think either had a great excuse for what happen though. What I really liked was Ace. He was super cute and sweet. Brought a little lightness to a lot of the d

It’s no secret at all that I am an extremely huge fan of The Hard to Resist Series by SL Scott. This is a fantastic collection of standalone novels that are interconnected. I still fantasize about Johnny from The Resistance and I read that book years ago. Don’t you love it when novels have a lasting impact? These surely do!

Derrick Masters and Jaymes Grenier were high school sweethearts with their entire lives in front of them. Together they can make it through anything… until Derrick skips town

The Rebellion by S.L.Scott is a book with so much emotion. Your heart will ache, your head will spin but in the end you will be so happy you read it.
Derrick Masters is the lead Guitarists for world acclaimed band The Resistance. He has it all right now but something is missing. He has a dark and dangerous past he left behind 5 years ago and has never looked back. Deep down though he is restless, tired and burning out. He knows what's missing but that is in the past he left behind never wanting t

The Rebellion is Derrick and Jayme's, a/k/a Jamie, story in the Hard to Resist series by SL Scott.

Derrick and Jaymes have an 8 year history, three together and five never forgetting each other. They have struggled together and apart. This story is about friendship, love, loyalty, and trust and a story that will stay in my heart for a long time to come.

Derrick is a Rockstar, a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks who makes it big, but not without sacrifice, namely Jaymes. Jaymes sent him awa

She's the melody that plays in my heart......

And yes I loved this line from the book! I really loved this series and hope it's not the end. I would really love to see Tommy get his HEA and maybe with a certain guitarists sister just maybe and hint, hint with a wink.
I love how all the books intertwined and you got a glimpse of the chemistry of all the characters. SL Scott does an amazing job of reeling you in and capturing your interest and heart into these characters lives.

I love SL Scott's Hard to Resist Series... and could not wait for Derrick's story, but it was definitely not what I was expecting.

Derrick met Jaymes when they were teenagers, and now they have a second chance at love (all thanks to their moms who did a little medaling). Jaymes has a secret she has been keeping from everyone since Derrick left her all this years ago. She was devastated when Derrick left and fell into some trouble, that has been haunting her ever since.

I haven't read any of the other books in the series, but it's not an issue as these are all standalone.

This was second chance for high school sweethearts, but when Derrick leaves to pursue his dream career he breaks both his and Jaymes heart.

So when Derrick comes back to all he left, can or will he want to leave it all behind? Jaymes was left reeling and picking up the pieces of what Derrick's leaving brought to her doorstep, so when they are reunited can they both put the past behind them an

This is one heck of a second chance rock star romance and I had a great time reading it!
The Rebellion is one of those books you can hardly put down and you find telling yourself "just one more chapter".

I fell instantly in love with Jaymes, Ace and Derrick. S.L. Scott makes it just so easy to get attached to those guys. I just finished the book and already miss them.

Reading about how two souls meant being together find their way back to each other was an emotional roller-coaster I wasn

The Rebellion by S L Scott is a truly amazing second chance read. From chapter 1, I was drawn into this story about Derrick, a rock star guitarist for the band "The Resistance" and Jaymes, the girl from his past. The development of these two characters and their storyline was so good I could not put the book down. Derrick and Jaymes grew up on the wrong side of the tracks and Derrick always vowed he was going to get out. He did by joining the band and becoming a rock star. The unfortunate thing ...more

So amazing

This book is one for the records. So full of lost hope and love that cannot be forgotten. It's not your normal second chance at life or love. It's truly about not being able to live without the one person you are supposed to spend the rest of your days with. Jaymes and Derrick are the purpose to this life together

So many secrets and a lot of drama, but it all had meaning. There is a reason this story is addicting, and it has to do with the love of a person that you would do anything f
