Review & Giveaway: Last Chance Rebel by Maisey Yates
Last Chance Rebel
Cooper Ridge #6
The prodigal son of Copper Ridge, Oregon, has finally come home
The man who ruined Rebecca Bear’s life just strolled back into it with one heck of an offer. Years ago, Gage West’s recklessness left Rebecca scarred inside and out. Now he wants to make amends by gifting her the building that houses her souvenir store. Rebecca won’t take Gage’s charity, but she’s willing to make a deal with the sexy, reclusive cowboy. Yet keeping her enemy close is growing dangerously appealing…
He’s the wild West brother, the bad seed of Copper Ridge. That’s why Gage needs the absolution Rebecca offers. He just didn’t expect to need her. After years of regretting his past, he knows where his future lies—with this strong, irresistible woman who could make a black sheep come home to stay…
At first I wasn't sure if I'd like this story. The plot is sorta 80's in feel. Like a soap opera. Because I've liked other books she has written I read it anyway.
To be honest this isn't one of my favorites of hers. It's not like I didn't somewhat enjoy it, because it wasn't all dis-likable by me. There are parts I really enjoyed. But others that made me think...huh!
The story felt like a mix of soap opera and chick-lit. I can handle the soap opera, not a fan of chick-lit.
I think what Gage did was terrible, how it was handled was even worse. I did like that he finally needed to deal with it and make it up to Rebecca. Of course he did wait a long time. And kudos to her for not forgiving right away. I don't think I would.
Not only does Rebecca have to deal with what Gage did to her (you want to know don' t you) she also had to deal with what her family did too! A lot of hits to a young girl.
I did like how Gage began to forgive himself and Rebecca forgive him. How they worked out their issues was done well.
So there are many good points and not so good in Last Chance Rebel. I'm glad I tried it.
If you've read Last Chance Rebel or any other book by Maisey Yates I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
