Stone Rivers is a sin I can’t commit.
After years of playing the trophy, puppet, perfectionist,
I’ve forgotten who I am.
Until the boy from my past walks back into my life.
Handsome as sin, charming beyond belief—Stone Rivers is temptation personified.
Our combustible chemistry shatters my resolve.
His blistering kisses remind me of everything I used to want.
But, our present is

The Jezebel is the third book in Dylan Allen’s ‘Rivers Wilde’ series and as much as I loved the first two, this is my favorite. Regan and Stone have captured my heart and I couldn’t have loved this story more!
“I water you, you water me. Together, we’re going to grow.”

Regan Wilde and Stone Rivers meet when they’re both young. Stone was just a boy then, but he knew that Regan was something special. They connected in a way that wasn’t romantic, but was also more than just a

"Adrenaline is my drug of choice. When I was ten, Regan Wilde gave me my first taste of it. I’ve been hooked ever since."


STONE & REGAN ARE EVERYTHING!!

"I’m Regan Naomi Wilde - daughter, sister, legacy."


The Jezebel is adventurous, intense, steamy, complex, exceptionally constructed and unforgettable! 

"Everything I need to know about you, I learned in that bakery.”

Rivers Wilde is absolutely one of my favorite fictional destination to come back to and Regan Wilde's story is exciting, passionate,

This. Is. The. Best. Of. This. Series. Period!
Dylan creates the ultimate kick Ass heroine who's strong & confidant in her life choices and paramour choices too. A story of a woman's growth from her repressed childhood to her coming into her own, making choices for her own personal happiness, is so satisfying and heartening to read, I wish this book could be made into a movie.
Regan is a woman with a predestined path, until she carves her own.

THE JEZEBEL by Dylan Allen is a romantic legend, an epic love story, an exploration of fate and choice and everything that lies between. My eyes are swollen from sobbing my heart out, and my voice is husky from all the belly laughs. I wasn't ready for this book. As always, I need to give you guys a content warning for the difficult topics I picked up on: human trafficking, rape, domestic violence, coercive control, infidelity, pregnancy, death.

Their love was written in the stars ✨

An emotionally powerful romance that will take you on a journey that will both enlighten you and make you fall in love. Regan is a strong heroine who will remind you that women can do anything. Take back your power. Love hard. Own your future. Speak the truth, even when it’s hard. She is one of my favorite heroine’s of all time. Sexy, beautiful, resilient and brave. She was also beautifully flawed and she owned it all!!!

She was Venus. He was Mars. Their love

The Jezebel is hands down the best book on the Rivers Wilde series to date and my favorite. This book blew my expectations out of the park, it was so good. This story was full of angst, passion, pain, desperation, love and family drama. Omgg it was like watching one of your favorite soap opera’s. I love coming back to the Rivers Wilde world. All the rivalry, money, power, secrets. All the feels and it had me hook all the way to the end.

description

The Jezebel was a very multi-layered contemporary romance. The main characters Regan and Stone are very likable, and share a strong connection that I could really feel coming off the pages. I loved that instead of flashbacks we got to see it all happen in a linear storyline from the moment they met when Stone was just ten years old and Regan eighteen. Regan gave him a place where he could stay safe and be himself, and the friendship that developed

5 Breathless Stars!!!

Regan & Stone have left me breathless! Their journey is complex and spectacular!!! The Jezebel by Dylan Allen is an extraordinary story of two star crossed lovers.

This quote!!! This quote is everything!!!
"To call what we’re doing something as simple as a kiss is akin to calling a pearl sand. At its core, that’s all it is, but pressure, passion and motherfucking fate collide and stars align and this simple, simple thing becomes extraordinary, beautiful, coveted."

The Jezabel is an emotional and passionate story full of love, angst and secrets. Reagan is a badass heroine and Stone was so sweet and together they are everything.

Their romance is not easy, pain and anguish awaits them every step of the way but they are both warriors and they fight with everything they have for what they want. I swooned so hard.

It is is a roller coaster of emotions that seep deep into your soul, and I loved the family and the brothers. This intense and intense story will lea

Even after some days between reading this book and finally try to write this review, I'm not sure if I can find the right words for it. I really really wanted to love this book, ending up 'just' liking it. As I can't put exactly into words, why I'm not loving it like everyone else, I'd say it a classic case of 'It's me, not the book'.

I adored Stone, who acted way older than he was. That's to be true when he was young and absolutely when he was in his late twenties. Perfect boyfriend material.

Ahh!!! I love this book so much!!! Stone Rivers is a presence from the moment his fiery red head makes an appearance hiding in Regan's store with a busted lip... And don't get me started on Regan Wilde. Fiesty, fierce, sexy... She's an amazing heroine.

I've been on a forbidden love kick, and this hits all the feels. It's friends to lovers, reverse age gap, steamy scenes and angst... You're going to lurve it. I couldn't get enough of this story.

Don't miss this consuming romance--FIVE STARS!!!

Powerful, heartbreaking, uplifting, romantic, and so much more. There are some serious and timely issues (that are dealt with realistically and beautifully), but also so much love. It’s simply spectacular. I have several favorite quotes I highlighted, but as I don’t want to spoil anything, I’m just leaving you with this one:

“Being a woman can feel like a burden. But it’s not a burden. It’s a gift. It’s on our backs that every single man in existence has stood to reach adulthood. The burden comes

This is a 10 star book all the way. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

A love story years in the making . Soul mates which ever way you look at it. Stone and Regan's story consumed me, the journey they go on both seperately and together filled me with despair hope and love. Family loyalty is tested, friendships are destroyed.

My emotions are all over the place. This is what true love feels like. Complete acceptance and steadfast. My heart is just full because of Stone.

In this third installment of the Rivers Wilde saga, we are treated to the journey of two people finding their voice and also learning to trust in love after navigating life in a lonely bubble.
This wasn’t an easy love but it was fought for hard. I found Stone so easy to love because I recognized soul immediately since he wore his feelings on hi

Whew! Talk about soul-searching, lust and suspense! I loved this book so much. This is an age-gap where the woman is older than the man. They meet as children, and the foundation of their relationship is built upon their childhood alliance when they were 18 and 10. Their friendship ends as quickly as it began, just as a young Stone Rivers is about to profess his childhood love to Regan Wilde.

When they meet later in life, sparks fly in the best way. Stone is just shy of 30, successful, and still

The Jezebel - One of Dylan’s best for me.

“My woman’s blood is tinged with mercury. Her spine is fortified by steel, her mind is wondrous, and her heart is a boundless bounty, and I love her without any condition.” Stone Rivers

Well we’ve had Hayes and Remi’s stories, and we were fed tidbits of information about the state of affairs with Regan! Now we get the up close and very personal full story, and what a hot mess that is!!

This is definitely Dylan Allen’s most enthralling book yet. She most certainly nailed it!
Regan and Stone’s story will touch on every fiber of your soul. It’s a story that spans several years. From the beginning you feel the emotional connection between these two and know you are in for quite a ride. I don’t do spoilers but I will say there are several moments that hit me in my being, as well as other that hit me in other parts (fans self). When Stone and Regan are younger and he runs to her and

“The Jezebel.” How this book has turned my perception of this word completely upside down!! I, like most, was familiar with all the negative connotations associated with this word. But Dylan Allen schooled me on what (and who) this word stands for. And Regan Wilde is its sheer embodiment.

While not a woman without flaws, some to even warrant being ashamed of, Regan, with a little help, is a woman who reminds herself of what she is made of. With a life journey riddled with scandal and betrayal, s

The Jezebel is a book I have been eager to read after falling in love with the Rivers Wilde world. I read The Legacy and The Legend last year and was keen to read Regan's story.

Dylan created two very spirited and likeable characters for the focus of this book, crafting a beautiful second chance romance. Regan is a strong and determined woman, but events come into play at the age of 19 that set her life on a different course. From this point Regan becomes a shell of her former self, a kept woman

This was an intensely emotional and angsty read that hits you in all the feels. The plot is perfectly paced and perfectly penned. The story consumed my heart and soul. I felt as if I was living the story along with these wonderful characters. It takes you on a wild ride filled with secrets, lies, heartbreak, passion, forbidden love, and jaw-dropping revelations. It has a powerful message.

Regan Wilde is one of the most powerful, brave, and strong women I have had the privilege of reading about.

The Jezebel is the 3rd book in the Rivers Wilde series and i was hooked from beginning to end. I'm so in love with this series and this novel was just another excellent addition to the series.

I’ve never read a book by Dylan before and I have to say, she’s definitely a top contender in this romance world. This story is so real and raw, dealing with problems that are true to societal standards. This book was so intelligently written and I loved every eloquent word within it’s pages.

The Jezebel by Dylan Allen is hands down the best book I will read in 2020. This story takes you on a soul-crushing journey from the beginning until the end. Dylan's ability to take a love story that spans over ten plus years between these two tortured souls and brings them together again with such burning passion goes beyond anyone's imagination.

Stone and Reagan's story runs the gambit of emotions from start to finish. Them chemistry between the two leaps off the pages, making it almost imposs
