Brittany Crowley really knocked it out of the park with this one. I absolutely loved everything about it! Rebel is the ultimate friends to lovers/brother's best friend romance and was exactly the type of read that I was looking for.

Emerson Cage is a fierce fighter who aspires to follow in her dad's footsteps. She has always dreamed of fighting in the MMA and her hard work and dedication has finally paid off. But before her first fight, she decides to let loose and blow off some steam. Taking a c

This is one of my favorite genre and MMA Fighters is one of them. I especially loved this story because it was a female MMA fighter and she kicked arse! I loved this story so much I couldn't get enough. I could not put it down till I was done late in the morning and I was like OMG because that ending oh yes that ending had me fist pumping in my room.

Emmy is amazing and she knows what she wants and she wants to follow the legacy her family has so she fights MMA and she is damn good at it. Her fi

#RebelsArmy all the way! This is a great MMA, slow burn romance that you will not want to put down. Joss is swoon worthy in so many ways and I feel inspired by all that is Rebel. Throughout the story we’re given a great blend of love, laughter and friendship. Leo and his personality is priceless. This man has a heart of gold and will have you in stitches with his comments. Seeing the entire Cage family come together and support one another goes a long way. I was a bit surprised with the ending b ...more

It’s in my blood. I was born to fight.

Rebel was the first book I’ve had the opportunity to include from Brittany Crowley in my blog tour schedule and I am so glad I did. Rebel was entertaining—sweet, funny, sexy and a sports romance… where can you go wrong? I enjoyed the female cage fighter idea immensely and while I didn’t connect with the characters the way I would’ve like, the read itself was still thoroughly entertaining. This friends to lovers/brother’s best friend romance is written in

I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

I have been a fan of Brittany Crowley's writing since the beginning of her Cage series and my love has no waned but after reading Rebel, I have to say that she steamrolled me with all the emotion and heat that she put into her newest fictional couple Emmie and Joss. Brittany kept my heart strings tangled more than the sheets between her heroine and hero. She has never brought me to tears before but the waterworks appear

Rebel by Brittany Crowley
“She’s up for the match of her life, 5 stars”

Emmerson has been in love with her brother’s best friend since forever. The thing you should know about Emmy is she’s a fighter and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get what she wants in the ring and outside of it. Will he finally notice her? Or is it time to cut all ties?
Joss has always had a soft spot for Emmy. He is willing to be in her life in any capacity, but not as a boyfriend. Then one day he actually sees her.

Brittany Crowley has a knock out on her hands with Rebel. This book was everything I could possibly want in a book. It had sassy heroines, swoon worthy men, MMA and banter that had you laughing out load one minute and blushing the next.

I saw this cover come up on my Facebook a couple weeks back and right away I fell in love. It shows power and strength. I love a sports romance but one that stars a female athlete HELLO! that's amazing and amazing it was, this book captured me, wrapped its self and around my heart and wouldn't let go.  Rebel is the baby of the family who has been training to uphold her fathers legacy but doing it on her own terms, no handouts, no help with getting fights. She's strong, independent and totally he ...more

I Voluntarily Reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book!!!

Brittany you did an amazing job on this one. At first I thought t was difficult to understand the connection between Joss and Emmy. I'm guessing because it happened so fast between them. However, after history and being reminded that just because Joss wasn't able to have a relationship with Emmy, didn't mean that his heart wasn't there. It also didn't mean that he wasn't ready. Emmy and Joss had something from almost the start. Howeve

Omg this book was AMAZING!! Couldn't put it down I was hooked from the first page until the last. Brothers best friend books are always my favorite and this one is a top favorite for me now. Joss is everything you want and Rebel she's one bada** chick who takes no crap from anyone. #TeamRebelForever. Seriously while I was reading I felt like I was apart of this story and apart of the main characters life, I laughed so hard. She wrote all of the characters so well and everything came together so ...more

Hopefully at this point you have read the Cage Brother stories, but even if you haven't you can read this one with missing serious backstories. (For the record...read them all, you'll love these arrogant tough Cage boys so much). Emerson is a legacy. She is also Daddy's little girl, and it may be a fight to the finish for him allow her to get into the MMA ring. Rebel lives up to her nickname in every conceivable way but she also needs to step back, grow up and learn to deal with the notoriety th ...more

REBEL ROCKS!! And Joss roars! I love this story the two of them friends to lovers, brothers best friend to lovers and so much more. It's always fun when the gang you drooled, cried, roared at are now married with kids and them babies done growed up and made you so proud. Rebel does just that. Yeah she got her name from having fun and going against the grain, and she hasn't stopped. Now she is using the women who are lifting up her being a woman in the ring to give her the boost she needs to get ...more

Welcome to the next generation of Cage. Rebel is absolutely everything that I hoped it would be. Emerson is sassy, funny, and a complete bada**!! Joss is all alpha male and trust me when I say he will make you swoon. The two of them together is absolute perfection. Throw in an overprotective family and two of the best friends anyone could have, and you have an book that is witty, sexy, and a definite 5 star read. Oh, and I need a Leo in my life!! #stillZandersgirl4ever

This book was amazing!! Emerson, Rebel, Cage is a kickass protagonist who knows exactly what she wants and will do whatever it takes to get it. Joss is swoon worthy, I'm talking alpha male, throw you over the shoulder kind of guy. He knows his mistakes and is fixing them through actions rather than words. They're the perfect couple and I would recommend this for anyone looking for a sport romance filled with HOT guys!!!

Rebel was a totally awesome girl. I loved her take no nonsense attitude.She was having the time of her life at 22. Joss was a sculpted body guard who has been in charge of protecting Rebel. I want to throw my kindle as Joss was fighting his attraction to Rebel . Thank goodness he saw the " princess " he could have in his life. I so hope Quinn as well as Danny get a book.

For the most part I enjoyed it. I didn't love it, but it was easy to read and the characters were enjoyable.

For me, it was built on the parts I always want the badass heroine to be along with a strong male lead. It just didn't always seem to flow very well.

It’s like Brittany Crowley poked around inside my bookworm head, took note of everything I love in a book, and added it to Rebel! I love her Bound by Cage series and when I found out there was a spin-off I just about lost my mind with glee! This book was everything I hoped it would be and more.

Emerson’s dream of becoming a MMA fighter is about to come true. To celebrate her upcoming first fight she decides to celebrate by going on a road trip with her besties and hopefully it will help her forget about the one man she wants but can’t have.

Joss is her brother’s best friend and he takes protecting Emmy very seriously. He has always been attracted to her but no matter how tempting she is he didn’t want to cross that line. When he tracks her down on the road trip, he sees her in a differe

Brittany Crowley was born and raised in Massachusetts. She still lives there today with her husband and 3 kids. Getting into the world of romance after she had her first child, she was hooked. Though she had many ideas in her head, Brittany was unsure if she had what it took to become a writer. A few encouraging words and one writing challenge later, she completed her first book.
