    Anger, hate, bitterness are all such unattractive emotions, they muddle your mind, they tarnish your soul, they make a mark on you. Rebecca is filled with these feelings, it seems that is what drives her, gives her energy, makes her move forward, gives a place to hide. Her life was shaped by the accident, it changed everything for her, still affects her, it still is visible in her body. Her mother used it, and the payoff, as an excuse to leave them, that changed her life even more. His father made the payoff, making the whole accident a secret. It's been 17 years. Rebecca hated Gage with everything that was in her, enough to wanting to kill him. Gage was such a troubled man, it was obvious that the events in his teenage years, the accident, and his father, shaped him as well. And he tries to stand so tall and careless, but with every action and every decision he shows how much he truly did care, how much he wanted to fix the past, to be able to move on, to be able to be, to be able to breathe. He has all these thoughts and emotions inside of him that he has absolutely no frame of reference how to deal with them, and he seems lost. ​Hate, bitterness, anger, and fear were all palpable in the air, the tension immensely high, the air filled with negative thoughts, so much so it felt like I was drowning in them at times, overwhelming to take it all in. And from that rock bottom place, the author turns the story to a beautiful tale about redemption, forgiveness, learning to let go of all the protective walls, and learning to love. The story goes deep, it is rough, raw, and hurtful, because we often have break down completely, to be able to build up again. And it is easier to accept that someone else has forgiven you than forgive yourself. There's nothing light and fluffy about this story. I was very frustrated at the beginning since I felt Gage was dealt a rotten hand. He was a teenage boy who made a mistake, the accident was that, an accident. What happens after the accident was choices adults made themselves and had nothing to do with Gage. Why all the hate and anger towards him? But it was the process that Rebecca had to go through. And the character development in this story is superb, on both Rebecca and Gage, and even secondary characters. How they both come to the place, where they can open up, forgive themselves, and move on from there is an uphill battle, beautifully done, so touching, and even sensual. This story shook me to the core and got me emotionally involved. I was furious to it at times, yet smiling at other times. I felt for the characters struggles, yet was irritated by their immaturity. The journey Rebecca and Gage took, I was right there with them, with every bump in the road, the uphills, the thrilling curves, and the occasional smooth riding. A beautifully written story, at times nearly poetic, about redemption, forgiveness, learning to trust and the meaning of love. ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon at the side

    An angst-filled and emotional story

    I'm not sure what I expected when I started reading this book but the synopsis was eye-catching enough that I knew I had to read it. LAST CHANCE REBEL is an angst-filled and emotional story of healing, growth and love that will break your heart and put it back together. And yes, it's a tear-jerker too. If life has taught Rebecca Bear anything, it's that she cannot depend on anyone but herself. After being injured in an accident and having her mother abandon her when she needed her most, she has slowly rebuilt her life and Gage West's return to Copper Ridge after seventeen years threatens all her efforts. Gage's return means he has to face his past but he is not expecting forgiveness or to have the welcome mat rolled out for him. What he also does not expect is that Rebecca would be nothing like he pictured her. Truth is, for me it was not a very pretty story. It was painful and heart breaking. I can't say that I loved or even like the characters, but I admired them because facing their issues and dealing with them was a hard but cathartic process for them and required them to peel back layers to get to the heart of the issues. It felt like both Gage and Rebecca had been frozen in time since the accident and needed to grow and deal with their feelings. She's bitter and filled with rage, but she's a fighter and she's created a comfortable life for herself. And if the means to do so was from Gage? Well, she is not willing to be indebted to him. Gage was a young man who made a terrible mistake and all the time he has spent away did little to heal him. Returning home was what he needed and in addition to facing Rebecca, he also needed to forgive himself and also deal with the rift his leaving had caused within his family. Kudos to Ms. Yates for pulling off a believable romance between these characters and I think that the ending makes up for all the drama and angst.

    I get emotional thinking about this story.

    With Last Chance Rebel, Maisey Yates put some of her best work into Gage and Rebecca. My heart felt like it was torn right out of my chest. Living with the physical scars of an incident in her youth, has made Rebecca stronger, self - reliant, less trusting and full of anger and bitterness. Her one sanctuary is her shop of odds and ends. Being there allows her to escape the pain that is her constant companions, until the conductor of her misery reappears. Gage left Copper Ridge, a broken man and returns with a mission. In carrying out his purpose, Gage finds redemption and changes many lives, including his own. Rebecca and Gage were united by tragedy but brought together by hope. I get emotional just thinking about this powerful story.
