[Pat's ARC Review]: "Rebellious"

Rebellious by Gillian Archer
Publisher: Loveswept (September 13, 2016)
Series: True Brothers MC, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Every rebel needs a cause—and a woman to believe in. Discover why Heidi McLaughlin raves that “the sexy, alluring bad boys of the True Brothers MC will make your mouth water” in this smoldering novel from the author of Ruthless.

The black-leather-clad biker who just roared up on his Harley doesn’t resemble any single father Emily Clark has ever known. But as she watches “Reb” bonding with his son, Emily realizes there’s a lot more to this bad boy than his alpha-male attitude or his sinful good looks. And when Reb takes an interest in her, there’s no way she can resist his surprisingly tender touch. The one thing Emily won’t give up is her hard-won independence. 

As president of the True Brothers MC, Reb owes a sacred debt of loyalty to the club, but his first priority is making sure that his son grows up right. Pursuing an unexpected affair with Emily is a close second. Then a violent stalker threatens her life, and this unconventional guardian angel really turns up the heat. Nobody messes with Reb, or anyone under his protection. Trouble is, how’s he supposed to defend Emily when she insists on going it alone? He’s willing to put his life on the line for her. Now, maybe, he needs to open his heart.

Pat's Review:

If you enjoy reading motorcycle club (MC) stories, put this one on your list. It's hot, sexy, a little rough around the edges, and will even make you laugh.

Emily Clark is a shy, quiet school librarian that works three jobs, lives in a trashy part of town, and drives a junker so she can pay off her school loans. She's petite, very sweet, and having difficulty getting over an abusive relationship from her past. Especially since he seems to be harassing her again.

An eight-year-old boy Tucker Gifford, a latchkey kid, has captured her heart. His mom, Rhonda, often leaves him alone and locks him out of the apartment with a bag of junk food. He hangs out with Emily, or another family in the building.  She knows nothing about his father, but can't imagine why he doesn't come for him. Finally one evening she has had enough. She is taking Tucker to his dad. What a meeting that turned out to be.

Reb is the president of True Brothers MC. He's huge, gorgeous and runs his club with an iron hand. When this tiny woman shows up at the gate with his son, he nearly loses it, and totally frightens Emily in the process. After having time to talk, he explains his custody battle with his ex, and her need for more and more money, essentially blackmailing him. Leaving Tucker alone is the final straw. He takes her to his home to prove he's a good guy. In the process, he claims her as his woman. Emily has tried over the last few years to prove she is no one's property, she can take care of herself. Reb is not convinced.

The sex is hot, the language dirty, and the story is awesome. The last few chapters had me on the edge of my seat. Rebellious can be read as a stand alone, but I'm now reading Ruthless (Book 1) for more True Brothers stories.
