Kaci Boudreaux is every Southern mama's nightmare, including her own. This former Miss Grits would rather tromp around in boots shooting off potato guns - and her mouth - than dress pretty and play nice with the boys. Especially her chauvinistic fellow professors, her ex-husband, and those military cargo pilots she accidentally started a war with.
Lance Wheeler is every Southern belle's dream, except his ex-fiancée's. After being left at the altar, he'd love to take his C-130 and fly far, far away. But since his bird technically belongs to Uncle Sam (as does he), a distraction in the form of a feisty fireball of a physics professor will do while he's waiting for his next deployment with the Air Force.
He's into her for the fun. She's into him for the challenge. But when their secrets and fears start slipping out, their hearts - and even her job - will be on the line. She needs roots. He wants to see the world. What will they do about needing each other?

Laugh out loud romance
What made the experience of listening to Her Rebel Heart the most enjoyable?
Karen White does an amazing job with all the voices and capturing the emotion of each character.
What other book might you compare Her Rebel Heart to and why?
I adore Jamie's humor in her books. Her Rebel Heart is in line with all of Jamie Farrell's other books, but her voice is also very similar to Jill Shalvis.
Which scene was your favorite?
The potato gun scene when Kaci took Lance to send his ex-fiance's rings sailing off into the forest.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, but sadly I had to take several days to finish is.
Any additional comments?
Jamie Farrell became and auto-buy author for me when I read Southern Fried Blues soon after it came out. I'm always guaranteed lots of romance and laughter with each and every book from Ms. Farrell.
While I'm not sure I'll ever fall in love with another character as hard as I have for Kimmie in Ms. Farrell's Misfit Brides series, Kaci Boudreaux really does come in a close second. Kaci is super feisty and so freaking smart, yet also loves to shoot a potato gun and was even in beauty pageants growing up thanks to her mama.
Lance Wheeler had no idea he has met his match when he meets Kaci. I absolutely loved that Lance totally got Kaci and accepted her just as she was, unlike pretty much anyone had in the past. I seriously loved them as a couple and loved how Lance worked with Kaci to help her get over her fears of flying in so many creative ways.
Lance and Kaci had amazing chemistry and could totally burn up the sheets, but I really think the fact they made each other laugh and seemed to understand each other made me fall in love with them as a couple. Yes they both made some mistakes, but I loved they found a way to make their relationship work long-term.
Her Rebel Heart is the first book in the Officers' Ex-Wives Club from Ms. Farrell, though it wasn't released first. I had no issues with reading the books out of order, but if you are one to only read books in order, you have 2 more stories already out in the series that I absolutely loved every bit as much as Her Rebel Heart.

It's a lighthearted, and absolutely amazing read
Adorable story, I loved it! It's a warm, lighthearted romantic comedy, in short my favorite kind of book. And Jamie Farrell's always do justice to her books and her characters. This book is no exception. I think that it is well-written with well-developed characters with sassy heroine and alpha hero.
Kaci and Lance are perfect for each other. Kaci is still trying to deal with her obnoxious ex-husband, who happens to be her colleague. Whereas, Lance is trying to not think about the woman he almost married, she left him on their wedding day. That was the day of their fated meeting. Unfortunately their first counter didn't end too well...
But soon they meet again. Kaci is a physics professor. Lance is a military pilot. On surface they have nothing in common, but as they get to know each other, they realize that they're perfect for each other. They're both attracted to each other. They get on each others nerves and yet can't seem to stay away....
I think it's a great read. I listened to audio book and narration is perfect. I couldn't find a single flaw. I think that anyone who likes contemporary romance will enjoy this book.
