“You gonna sit down or what?”
I sit down. Arguing with him would be futile. We sit there, side by side, staring off down the arrow-straight road, and for a moment I don’t hate him. He pulls a cell phone out of his pocket and taps something into it, and then he turns to face me, frowning slightly.
“You believe in vengeance?”
“You mean like revenge?”
He shakes his head. “Revenge is a selfish act. Retaliation for something. Vengeance is a different thing altogether. It’s about obtaining justice, usually for someone who can’t claim it for themselves.”
This is an odd line of questioning but I decide I’ll bite. Maybe I wouldn’t if he were being a jerk like he was a couple of hours ago, but that’s not what’s happening. He’s pensive, the live wire that apparently runs through him dulled for the moment. “I don’t know,” I say. “Probably, in that case.”
“What if I simplified the question?
What if I say, do you believe in justice?
“Then, yes, I do believe.”

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

In that instant he needed her, to claim her as his own…just as she needed him to claim and own her...Alexis was no more, Sophia was born.

Rebel is the first book in a new trilogy form author Callie Hart, the Dead Man’s Ink series. Book one introduces Sophia and Rebel’s story and will be completed with two additional volumes.  This trilogy will focus on how, when, where and why our two main characters connect. While this is a new series, some characters mentioned may seem familiar from Ms. Hart’s Blood & Roses series where Alexis ‘Sophia’ is first introduced through her sister, Sloane.  

Life has a way of taking unexpected paths when you least expect it!  This is the situation that Alexis Romera finds herself in when tries to aid a wounded stranger.  The safe, normal life that she has known is stripped away with a swift vicious hand. She finds her life controlled by evil, sold as a sex slave with no way to escape and in the middle of a war between a cartel and an MC. Enters, Rebel an unlikely hero, an MC Prez that purchases her from a cartel that deals in human trafficking.  Will he help her, let her go home, can she trust him?  Or does Rebel have his own agenda that includes Sophia? Her only saving grace is that her identity is unknown, hidden because of a fake ID she had in her possession at the time of her kidnapping.

A war has been brewing between the Los Oscuros Cartel and Widow Makers MC. As president of the club, Rebel has worked to keep the cartel off their turf while protecting the brotherhood and his family.  When the cartel kills the only family he claims, war is declared. The only witness to the brutal murder is being sold on line as a sex slave by the Los Oscuros leader, Hector.  Rebel makes arrangements to buy her so that he can find out what really happened and also convince her to testify against the cartel.  But he was not counting on the beautiful, gutsy woman with enough attitude to bring him to his knees.  He knows he should not keep her, that he should get what he needs from her and send her back to her family, but the more he is around her the more he knows that is no longer a possibility. 

There are fractions that are after him that will not be easy to defeat.  Demands are being made that he is not willing to meet!  Nightmares from his past that will not let him go and a woman that he wants to claim!  Read and discover how Rebel and Sophia deal with the situations life throws their way.   

Hero: Louis James ‘Rebel’ Aubertin 4.5 stars
Heroine: Alexis ‘Sophia’ Romera 4.5 stars
Plot:  4.5 stars
Steam Level:  4.5 stars
Cliffhanger:  Yes

Would I recommend this book:  Yes! This book has it all!  A sexy, hot MC Prez and a beautiful, spunky alpha female with a take no prisoner attitude that clash while working on their undeniable attraction as they run from the bad guys!  What’s not to love?

Would I recommend this author:  Yes! Once again Ms. Hart grabs her readers’ attention with the amazing start to her new series!  If you love characters that leap from the page with their attitudes and storylines that sizzle them this is the author for you!

Rebel and Sophia's story.
The first of a three part series. This novel contains a small snippet which has already been released in the Owned: An Alpha Anthology, however it is followed by a full story installment.
Sometimes, you don't mean to become another person. Sometimes the choice is made for you, and pretending is the only thing that keeps you going. When Alexis Romera is taken and her kidnappers find her fake ID in her purse, she must become Sophia in order to keep her family safe. Revealing her real identity to the man she's sold to would be easy enough, but can she trust him? Hell bent on revenging the murder of his uncle, Rebel doesn't seem all that interested in playing things safe.
In fact, nothing about the secretive, dark and brooding MC president seems safe at all.
What do you do when the man who raised you is murdered, and the only witness is kidnapped girl who's being sold as a sex slave? You buy her, of course. As president to the most powerful motorcycle club in America, Rebel isn't lacking in power. There are strings the man can pull, and entire criminal organisations and corporate businesses alike would fall to their knees. However, along with such power comes intense interest. The DEA have their eye fixed solely on the MC...and they're just waiting for Rebel to trip up.
Getting Sophia to testify is the only way to bring the Los Oscuros cartel down. The beautiful, dark haired, dark eyed woman is belligerent and uncooperative and unlikely to bend to his will, but Rebel has a few tricks up his sleeve to make her compliant--he'll charm her until she's bending over backwards to please him.
Of course, falling for her might cause a few hiccups along the way...

Callie has experienced many changes throughout her life, and gone through many ups and downs that have all worked towards shaping and molding her into the person she is today: fun loving, active, social, and hard working. The only thing that has remained a constant throughout her life is writing. Creating characters who will tear your conscience in two is a favorite pastime of Callie’s. There are few real saints and sinners in her books; more often, the denizens of her stories are all very human. Broken, flawed, and always with the potential for redemption.
Despite the subject matter being markedly hot and heavy in comparison to the stories she wrote in elementary school, there will always be an element of fairytale to her work.
