Amber Burns ends her Boneyard Brotherhood MC trilogy with a BANG!!! I have enjoyed each and every one of the standalone books in this riveting series and REBEL truly tied up loose ends and left me with a sweet sigh of satisfaction!
Without giving too much juicy plot away, Chase acclimates to civilian life after a long stint in the military and finds new purpose as a cop. His job leads him to an undercover stint in the Boneyard Brotherhood to gather Intel for the sheriff and a pretend romance ignites into the real deal when his pretty as a picture partner, Tara, goes along for the ride, posing as his adoring “girlfriend.” But as time goes on the lines between love and loyalty, sworn duty and the fierce bonds of friendship become terribly blurred. Especially since the biker gang, which is mostly comprised of war veterans, feels like home to Chase. Can he bring down the members of the club that has welcomed him with open arms or is there another way out of this whole sordid mess? You gotta listen to find out but this story is packed with juicy drama, suspense, raw emotion, and some sexy times to boot!
I thoroughly enjoyed this entertaining audio listen of REBEL: Boneyard Brotherhood MC, narrated once again to sheer perfection by Gideon Welles. His deep, growly baritone is SEXY AS SIN and his sensitive depiction was perfect for the role of the world weary war veteran turned undercover cop hero. He just nails the macho, alpha male persona to a T, and he brought such humanity into this uniquely nuanced character of Chase, evoking such deep emotions in me that it took my breath away! And he did a lovely job with the various other characters as well.
As for the story, I thought the author did a marvelous job conveying Chase’s inner struggle between his chosen career as a lawman, and his fierce allegiance to the Boneyard MC…a group of brothers who made him feel truly accepted and a part of something worthwhile. The escalating drama as he gets in way over his head, torn between two worlds, had me on the edge of my seat.
I also enjoyed his on-again/off-again relationship with his partner/pseudo girlfriend Tara. Though the romance was more in the background than I would have liked, the scenes this feisty duo did share were fun and sexy and achingly tender, and I thought they had AMAZING chemistry. I got a real kick out how Tara always gave Chase a hard time about his scraggly appearance! And it was a hoot how they were constantly bickering in the bedroom too! Ultimately, there was a realness to this couple that I found incredibly refreshing and their HEA truly tugged at my heartstrings!
It’s sad to bid adieu to the Boneyard Brotherhood series but I couldn’t have asked for a more winsome finale!

Chase returns home from his military career and needs to start civilian life. He becomes a cop, but soon into his new chosen path, it is decided to put him undercover into the Boneyard Brotherhood. Little did Chase know how this move would change his life. Like many veterans, Chase suffered mentally upon his return, and really had no idea how severe. When put in this Club, he finally found a sense of understanding and belonging. With his partner Tara, both at work and home he has to make decisions. Will he be able to take down this Club that he has grown attached to? Will he warn them of impending arrests? Will he be found out and extracted? There are many questions that are in this story, but the wrap of the situation is well thought out and executed. Amber Burns understands this kind of situation, and writes a compelling drama with a splash of romance bringing much needed attention to our veterans. I love the brotherhood and how they look out for each other, it's a true testament to their ties and commitment. I also enjoy the interaction of characters from the previous two books, especially Cole, the tough enforcer that he is! This is a great addition to her series.
Continuing narration with the same voice is always a pleasure. We get to know the characters by that voice, and for this story, Gideon Welles is key. His raspy, deep sound is perfect for these incredibly, masculine men of the brotherhood.

This next instalment in the Boneyard Brotherhood series is interesting. While it has a romantic element to it, the development of this part of the story is very limited. The story is really about the emotional and psychological challenges a veteran has to deal with when transitional back to civilian life. It touches on the connection people with military backgrounds have with each others. And it is about choices and finding oneself.
The story is fast paced and filled with twists and turns. However, I did find it a little incomplete. There are certain aspects of the MC itself (namely the illegal activity) that are hinted at but not properly explained. As such it isn't my favourite book in the series but it was still interesting.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
