EXCERPT

“Oh God, don’t do that.”

“Do what?”

That.” He pointed toward my mouth. “Everything I told you in Vegas is still true. You’re still gorgeous, still sexy as hell, still everything that draws me in like a damned magnet, but you’re also everything I can’t have. Don’t you get that? When you pull shit like that on the dance floor, you successfully drive me batshit crazy, watching you in some guy’s arms.” A small laugh escaped him. “Like that kid has any idea what to do with you if he actually managed to catch you.”

“And you do?”

His eyes darkened. “Don’t challenge me like that.”

The tension stretched between us for a quiet moment until I broke the silence. “I didn’t kiss him.”

“I’m well aware, because if you had, I’m not sure if I could have let him walk out of here, and that’s dangerous, Penelope. You are dangerous to me.”

“I’m sorry,” I said truthfully. “Logically, I know nothing can happen between us. I get it. But I see you, and all I can think about is the way you kissed me in Vegas. The way you touched me. I can’t just erase those memories, Cruz. Like I said, somehow you make me do stupid things.”

“You? I make you do stupid things?” he nearly yelled, and I was thankful for the loud, driving beat of the music beyond the office doors. “Woman, I got into a strange car for you. Illegally BASE jumped off a Ferris wheel to stay close to you. Went to jail for you, and I make you do stupid things?”

He stalked forward, his movements smooth like a predator, and a low hum filled my stomach, growing stronger with every step he took.

“I let you stay in my class. Stupid. I look for every reason to run into you, while simultaneously praying you’ll stay far away because I need this job. Stupid. I take one look at you in that fucking dress, and I’m so hard I’m afraid I can’t hide it in a room full of students. Stupid. I can’t stop thinking about the way you taste, the way you open up under me, the way your nails left little half-moons in my shoulders when I found how wet you were for me.”

If he got his hands anywhere near me, he’d find out I was just as wet now. God, his words were the biggest turn-on I’d ever experienced. Next to his abs. Or his arms. Or his mouth. Crap, the man was one giant sex package begging to be unwrapped.

“Cruz,” I whispered as he cupped my face with one hand, his thumb rubbing over my lower lip, while he caged me against the desk with the other.

My tongue licked across the tip of his finger, unable to help myself.

“God, Penelope. You could cost me everything, and yet I’m still in here with you. And this might be the worst choice of all.”

His mouth met mine in a kiss that sent my senses reeling. His tongue swept in, claiming every curve he might have missed last time, until it felt like my mouth belonged to him.

 

 

Review:

Phew, what a read!

Rebel is a fantastic ending to one heck of a series–pretty much non-stop stunts, action, romance, and a huge dose of OMG international drama toward the end, just to keep us on our toes. Penna and Cruz–what can I say?–they’re a greatcouple. I’m not usually a fan of the teacher/student romance, but these two make it work (the fact that they’re both of legal age and knew each other, albeit briefly, first helped somewhat). Sure, they just about gave me a heart attack with all the chances they kept taking, but they took responsibility for their actions and everything–eventually!–worked out in the end.

Aaaand–what an ending! There might have been a few tears over here when a classic movie reference was brought to life–seriously, I’m not sure when I’ve ever read such an absolutely perfect grand gesture moment.

I can’t wait to see what Ms. Yarros has for us next!

Rating: 4 stars / A-

EXCERPT:

“Welcome to Latin American History.”

At that deep, lightly accented voice, my pen fell to the paper, as useless as my brain.

“This class will also serve as your Study At Sea seminar, which means I have the joy of getting to know each of you very well over the next three months since you’ll be writing a thirty-page thesis for me.”

The class groaned, and I slowly dragged my eyes from the paper, past the neck of the red-haired boy in front of me, to the man who stood at the head of our class, casually leaning against his desk. I took in the way his pants hugged his hips, the contrast of his rolled white button-down against his tanned skin, and the loose green tie at his throat. My gaze caught on his lips, the strong line of his nose and cheekbones, to the melty chocolate eyes that were focused on the other side of the room as he addressed the students there. His hair looked like he’d run his hands through it more than a few times, and his teeth flashed white when he grinned, those panty-dissolving dimples appearing.

My heart stopped beating and my breath froze in my lungs, as if the slightest motion would make him disappear. A rush of heat flushed my skin, and the knot in my chest loosened, unraveling as surely as my body had the last time I’d seen him.

“So let’s get started, shall we? I just flew in from the States today, but I’ll be sure to learn all of your names by the end of the week. Now if you’ll let me have this moment, I’ve been waiting eight years to say it— My name is Dr. Delgado.”

Two thoughts slammed into me simultaneously.

One—Delgado. At least now I knew his last name.

Two—Holy. Fucking. Shit. Cruz was my professor.

Excerpt:

“Do I get a good-luck kiss?” he asked after checking for cameras, his hands framing my waist.

“Paxton.” I tried to make it sound like a warning, but it came out too breathy, too wanting. For crying out loud, I couldn’t even control my own voice against this guy.

He squeezed lightly and then groaned. “Did I ever tell you that I love this dress?”

I shook my head. The spaghetti-strap maxi dress had been a last-minute choice, but Penna said she was going to burn all my pants if she saw me in them for the twenty-first day in a row.

He leaned down, his mouth against the shell of my ear. “I can feel every curve under my hands, which makes me pretty damn desperate to slide this up your legs and really get my hands on you. But I won’t. You know why?”

I shook my head.

“Because you haven’t said yes—yet—and I’m a goddamned gentleman.”

My fingers traced the lines of the Chinese symbol tattoos that ran up his neck, simply unable not to touch him. “Do I have to say yes to everything to get to kiss you?” I asked.

His breath stuttered. “Do you want to say yes?”

Our eyes met, and it would have been so easy to say it, to throw my hesitation overboard and jump. But that wasn’t me, and it didn’t matter that I was in a breezy dress under the Italian sun with the hottest extreme athlete on the planet, I was still…me. “I’m thinking about it.”

His forehead puckered for a millisecond before he relaxed and smoothed the line of my waist. “Then I think we can take yeses on a case-by-case basis.”

My heart pounded in anticipation.

“Leah, would you like me to kiss you?”

“Yes,” I answered instantly.

Our hips met first as he drew me in. My hands slipped down the edges of his T-shirt to grasp the inked lines of his biceps. Arms like his should be modeled, sculpted, revered… or maybe just outlawed.

“Do you want to kiss me?” I asked.

“Hell yes,” he answered, then brushed his mouth against mine once before settling over me. 

I opened for him, and he dove in, his tongue filling my mouth while my ass filled his hands. Gentleman, indeed.

Review:

A “wild” start to a fun new series!

In real life I can take or leave both the X Games and reality TV, but Ms. Yarros makes both of them seem like one heck of a ride with the Renegades! You couldn’t pay me enough to even consider doing a third of the stuff they’re doing (except for the cruise ship. I’d be all over that part of it, even the classes and tutoring portion) but I’d happily sit here and read another couple hundred pages of Pax, Landon, and Penna doing all of that crazy stuff 🙂

Fortunately, that’s going to be possible, seeing as it’s the first in the series and all 😉

Pax and Leah were a fun couple–she started out a bit on the stodgy side, but she definitely had her reasons. Pax did a great job of helping her figure out how to start living again, and she somehow kept him focused just enough on his classwork (even though there wasn’t a lot of page time devoted to them actually doing schoolwork, thank goodness) so that the cruise will (hopefully! That part isn’t quite guaranteed yet) continue for another adrenaline-filled semester.

Seriously. How can we sign up for this type of work study program? Do they have it for graduate students, by any chance? Maybe in the MLIS field? 😉

Knowing Pax had a secret was making me a little crazy–I’m not going to lie–and I didn’t have a clue what it was until it was revealed, though a few things from early on made a lot more sense once you knew the whole story. The saboteur, too, came as a total surprise–never in a million would I have suspected that person. There goes my idea for a future series book…but hopefully Ms. Yarros is all over that and has a much better HEA in mind for the person who isn’t getting one in the way I thought they might.

See? No spoilers here. 😉

If I had to make a complaint, it’s that we see far more of the story from Leah’s POV than Paxton’s–but yeah, really, that’s about it. Not that I didn’t love Leah, but…Paxton, ya know? 😉

Nova’s next–bring. It. On!

Rating: 4 stars / A-
