What would you do for love? Ever the rebel, Kai Rockwell happily risks his life on a daily basis as a rescue paramedic. What he refuses to deal with? His impossibly stubborn father, “Mad Max” Rockwell, who runs the historic Rocky Peak Lodge deep in the Cascade Mountains with an iron fist. But when his family faces an unexpected threat at Rocky Peak—in the form of a beautiful woman—Kai knows it’s time to go home. Fiercely protective nurse Nicole Davidson would do almost anything to take care of her disabled sister--even accept a hefty offer to ask a few harmless questions at the charming old lodge where she’s working. Until the outrageously sexy Kai Rockwell shows up and sets everything on fire—most especially her. Equally determined, equally passionate about protecting their families, Kai and Nicole don’t know if they should be enemies or lovers—or both. All they know is they can’t resist each other…no matter the price.
Since I really enjoy Jennifer Bernard books and I was both looking forward to a new series and dreading it. I knew I'd really miss her firemen very much. If you haven't read them then you really need to. They rock!!
Romance readers know how scary a new series can be from a beloved author. We are left in the dark about the people and town. It feels like we've got to start all over in a new relationship.
I was game...
So The Rebel stars off really well. You get the relationship of the family pretty quick and then head to the now and see how everyone has grown. I'm glad she didn't stay to long in the past and quickly got to the story at hand.
I really loved Kai and his family. Even his father who you aren't sure has learned to change in the beginning. When the chips are down they all join together and work throw the family issues, like adults.
When I first met Nicole I really liked her. I have to admit that opinion didn't last. It just set me off that she lied and felt it was okay. Every time she thought to herself that it was okay to do what she was doing because of her sister I wanted to scream.
I know it might be silly for me to enjoy a story when I don't like the heroine but it happens. In the end I still didn't care for Nicole but since I really loved Kai and the family I over looked it. It wasn't like I hated her, she just wasn't my cup of tea.
I can't wait for the next book in the series. I have a feeling this family is going to be fun!
