    The Rebel

    In The Rebel, Adrienne took me on an unexpected adventure I enjoyed with two great characters I really liked! Amanda is an artist who has unresolved feelings and issues in her past. They control how she lives her life...with caution and in control. David is a lawyer who has never really felt like he fit in with his family. Always feeling like the black sheep, he is The Rebel in his family. When he suddenly finds himself helping out on the PI side of his family's business thanks to his mother's pushing, he finds himself not only seeking the help of Amanda, but soon he is feeling much more than professional towards her. When unexpected danger rears it's ugly head after Amanda decides to help David with his cold case, David will do whatever he can to keep Amanda safe and find out the truth. Will he be able to though? Adrienne quickly grabbed my attention and held me close to the story. This was due to great characters and an exciting, suspenseful plot. I really liked Amanda and David. I liked learning where they came from, what drove them, and what held them back. I liked how they were with each other. Their attraction is obvious and easy to feel, and I liked how their relationship grew through out The Rebel. What starts out as a professional relationship soon becomes so much more, and I felt like they were really good for each other. Both of their characters grew a lot as the plot progressed, and it felt good. They had so much to offer each other and as the reader they just felt so right together. I liked that they both had issues in their past that they were still struggling to deal with, and they unexpectedly help each other with these. The Rebel is told in alternating third person POV which made it so easy to read and connect with the characters. The mysterious part of the plot kept me guessing and was easy to lose myself in. The unknown and the fear factor really pushed the plot forward to an unexpected conclusion that I did not see coming! Of all the secondary characters, I really enjoyed David's mother the most! She is a unique, fun addition to The Rebel. The Rebel has a pace that kept me turning the pages quickly, but at the same time not always wanting the story to end because it was so good! I'd highly recommend The Rebel to any romantic suspense reader.

    Awesome

    I adored this book! Lots of mystery and intrigue with a wonderful romance at the core. David Hennings has never quite fit into his family's dynamic. His decision to become a defense attorney rather than follow in his father's footsteps has broadened the rift. He's trying though. He's back in Chicago and working hard to fit in with his close knit family. When his mother asks him to get involved in a case and find an artist to complete a skull reconstruction, he can't say no. That's when he meets Amanda LeBlanc. A fabulous artist who lives a carefully balanced life. Her attraction to David has her saying yes to him rather than playing it safe. If she only knew how crazy her life was about to become! This is one I highly recommend.

    Great sexy read!

    I loved everything about this book. I must admit I am not always into romance novels but this one had me craving more. It was very well written. You have intrigue, suspense,mystery,and romance all rolled into one great book. I fell in love with these characters. You have Amanda, an artist who is normally very status quo and likes to live in her neutral, safe zone. Then you have David Henning who is a sexy independent civil law attorney trying to come back to town and set up a private practice. He is the rebel of the Henning's family. Everyone else has followed in dad's footsteps and become a defense attorney but not David. Amanda is introduced to the Henning's at a fundraiser and catches the attention of Pamela Henning. Pamela is known for solving cold cases with the help of the police department and wants to get Amanda to do a reconstruction on a cold case skull found by detective McCall. David is sent to Amanda's studio to convince her to work on the skull and sketch. After she agrees to help her life is turned upside down. Everything starts to go wrong. She is told her building is mold infested and she has to leave immediately, her bank account is frozen, and she gets locked out of the hotel that she is staying at because her building is closed. Oh and she is attracted to David like a magnet from the instant they saw each other. Why is all of this happening now? Is the police department some how involved? When will the craziness stop. Will Amanda take a leap of faith and leave her safe zone or just return to her neutral life? Who is the person behind the skull and will they be able to take them home to their family or will someone make sure the past stays buried? If you want a great read that you won't want to put down you need to read The Rebel. I received an ARC of this book to review. This is my honest review.

    The Rebel by Adrienne Giordano

    The Rebel by Adrienne Giordano The best Giordano I've read to date. I was immediately invested in the hero and heroine and their connection and attraction to each other. A compelling attraction. David's family is an extra bonus. They are stronger together yet support each individually. I'm envious of their family ties, support and love. Amanda LeBlanc has to overcome her deep-seeded fears that she will become like her late mother in the emotional extreme high and lows of her life. Taking up her mothers profession hits close to the heart. At that point, Amanda's life starts to fall apart. Her home is condemned. Her bank accounts are frozen. Someone doesn't want her to finish the forensic reconstruction she's working on. Amanda, David, and his family work to solve the mystery, while Amanda and David deal with their increasing attraction that makes them completely right together. This Harlequin Intrigue is one you don't want to miss. Excerpt "To say the least, she affected him. And she hadn’t even opened her mouth. “David?” Yep. That was the voice from earlier. Soft and sweet and stirring up all kinds of images right along with Sunday mornings and coffee. With any luck, more than the coffee would be hot. Hokay. Mission getting derailed by wicked thoughts. Time to get serious. “Hi. Amanda?” “Yes.” She held her hand out. “Amanda LeBlanc.” David grasped her hand and glanced down at her long, elegant fingers folding over his. Her silky skin absorbed his much larger hand, and he might like to stay this way awhile. Nice hands. Soft hands. He’d imagined a sculptor’s hands to be work-hardened and rough. Not that she swung an ax all day, but he’d expected...different. “Um.” She pointed at their still joined hands. “I kinda need that hand back.” Epic fail, Dave. He grinned and regrettably slid his hand away. “Don’t take this the wrong way, but where have you been all my life?"" Excerpt From: Giordano, Adrienne. “The Rebel.” Harlequin I received a copy of the book from the author.

    A fun read from beginning to end!

    A great mystery involving bad boy/rebel David and sculptor Amanda! It is a fun addition to the Hennings family stories as relationships grow in this latest mystery. The suspense was there to the end but I thought it was more interesting to watch Amanda try to resist David and keep her emotions under wraps. All while the pair dealt with Amanda’s bad luck which got progressively worse after she agrees to help the police with an old mystery. As Amanda’s luck worsened, her attraction to David grew and it became harder and harder for her to resist the pull (you’ll find yourself asking “Why resist?!”). A fun read all around!
