The Return of the Rebel by Jennifer Faye- Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway

The Return of the Rebel
By: Jennifer Faye

The guy from the wrong side of the tracks…

Being promoted should be a dream come true, only it means working closely with Cleo's childhood crush, Jax Monroe. Jax may no longer be the rebel she remembers, but he still gets her heart racing like no other.

Jax cares too much about Cleo to let her get too close—but keeping his distance is proving impossible! As Jax reveals the extent of what he's been through, will Cleo show him that some things are too precious to put off until tomorrow?

He was the guy from her past, from the wrong side of the tracks and the guy who broke her heart. She should be happy getting promoted and receiving a substantial amount of money because she needed it badly, but Cleo wasn’t so sure as her excitement plummets a little bit when her childhood crush, Jax Monroe suddenly came back into his life as her new VIP client. He may have changed a lot, which includes being a hotshot big time who can gamble a whole lot of money, but he was still the boy who captured her heart when she was young.

Cleo was Kurt’s baby sister, thus off limits to Jax. He cared for her a lot, that’s why he kept on keeping her at arm’s length. It would keep her safe, and save her from heartbreak from an unknown future with him. But keeping his hands off her, and trying to avoid her seemed to be a difficult task. Jax had so much on his plate, and a past he wasn’t THAT willing to share to the girl who invaded his thoughts since they were young.

Cleo loved him since then, and was willing to do anything to be with him. I hated to see Jax kept on stepping back from the obvious attraction and emotion that they have for each other. Just as when Cleo thought Jax was coming into his senses, he would decide that she deserves better. When would he ever realize he was all that she ever wanted?

It was short, sweet, a little frustrating at times, but definitely worth the read especially when those secrets are being revealed, and everyone was getting their happy ending. Sometimes, it is better to take the risk than not experiencing the rush at all. I loved how Cleo gave it her all, and showed Jax that she can handle anything he would throw her way.

Jennifer Faye is a two-time RT Book Reviews Reviewers' Choice Best Book Award nominee. Maybe that’s partly due to the fact that she has spent most of her life with her nose in one book or another. It was only natural that she would go on to spin tales of her own. Now living her dream, she resides in Pennsylvania with her patient husband, one amazing daughter (the other remarkable daughter has flown the coop to chase her own dreams) and two spoiled cats. She’d love to hear from you via her website.
