Get ready to have your heart broken and pieced back together.
There were two things I absolutely loved about this audiobook - Tristan James's narration and the cameo of narrator Greg Tremblay to voice an established character from Rhys Ford's Cole McGinnis series.
Gus Scott hasn't had it easy. In fact, in the grand scheme, once could argue he's never had anything easy. He's had his heart broken by almost everyone, including firefighter Rey Montenegro. Three years ago Gus was shattered after a devastating break-up with Rey. It was just one more time that he was disappointed by someone who should have been there for him.
"I’m sorry I wasn’t what you wanted me to be, but you know what? You weren’t what I needed either, even if you were all I wanted.”
Gus left town six months ago, but he's back and ready to pick up the pieces of his life, and Rey is determined one of those pieces is going to be him. Told from both Gus's and Rey's third-person POV Rebel focuses on Second Chances, found family, loss, and love. There is some romance here but it's not the main focus, though Rebel does offer up some heart-melting moments.
"Listen to me carefully. I’m not going to spend my life anyplace other than with you, and I love you. With all of my heart. All of my soul and most of my sanity… I love you."
Tristan James provides a nuanced, textured, and beautiful interpretation of Rhys Ford's text.
Quite a bit happens off page, many of which I think could have added more depth to the story overall, but in the end I enjoyed Rebel and I'm looking forward to getting the stories for the supporting cast of characters here - especially Bear and Ivo. Looks like Mace is up next and (hopefully) we'll also get a feature for Luke.
I, for one, really hope Tristan will be back to narrate the rest.
