Rebel by Rebecca Yarros- Cassie’s Review

Why I Read It

Rebecca Yarros is my rockstar.

What I Rated It 

What It’s About

She’s Penna Carstairs. 
The Renegade they call Rebel.
FMX-treme Magazine’s sexiest female athlete of the year.
There’s no rule in extreme sports she hasn’t broken,
No gender barrier she hasn’t demolished.

She’s the woman I met in a bar in Vegas.
The woman I illegally BASE jumped for.
The woman I spent one insane, incredible night with.
But now I’m screwed.
Or rather…not screwed.

Because the woman I can’t get out of my head is the one woman I can never touch again.
I’m Dr. Cruz Delgado—the youngest professor on this campus,
And Penelope Carstairs just walked into my class.

Each book in The Renegades series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Book #1 Wilder

Cassie’s Review 

The Renegade series was something special, but Rebel by itself is empowering, inspiring, and just plain H-O-T! Her journey (and Cruz’s) is something that will change you and make you think differently.

“This was a high worth chasing. He was a risk worth taking.”
Rebel is my picture-perfect person of a modern-day feminist. She is tough, speaks out for herself or others, and able to accept help when needed. She is the only woman dominating in a mostly male led sport. She couldn’t be more powerful and inspiring if she tried. Despite her fall from being “Rebel,” throughout she changes Cruz too I think.

“Everything about you is a revelation.”
Cruz surpasses any Renegades male ten-fold. He is all MAN. He is also Rebel’s (his Penelope) soul keeper and probably the only person she could ever risk her reputation to be with. Despite him being taboo for Rebel, his heart, love, and listening are what make him stand out above all the other males in this series. His passion for culture and his loved ones is unmatched.

This book is the best of the series… and the two previous were still fives for me. This series/book is for the people who seek adventure in a book. This series/book is for the people who think that “love makes us do things we swear we’ll never do.”
