I never thought I’d see her again.

We shared one hot night together back in college before our paths took us in different directions.

But now, the most brilliant and beautiful woman I’ve ever met is back in my life. And the chemistry I remember? It’s more combustible than ever.

Except…our fling is forbidden and must exist only in secret. Her rules, not mine.

I can’t be her forever. I’m not that guy, and even she knows it.

But I can’t stay away from her either. I’m determined to claim not just her body but her heart, even if that’s the one thing she’s vowed not to give me.


An unforgettable meet cute! With the first book in her Looking To Score series Kendall Ryan brings a really fun relationship to life in THE REBEL. I enjoyed the adorableness of Eden and Holt together but I felt like there was so much potential drama and strife left out of the equation where the whole ex factored into the storyline. There was also a prequel novella (ONE NIGHT WITH THE REBEL) for this series, but then that prequel word for word was put into the front of this book as Chapters 1 through 6 with no explanation, so there was unnecessary confusion.

Eden’s character is a bit of a mash-up. She was a follower when she was with her ex and didn’t stand up for what she wanted in life, but now she’s stepping into her own and taking charge of the hockey team she inherited.

Holt was a sweetheart. I really enjoyed seeing him get to reconnect with the one that got away.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a hockey romance with dramatic setups and complex characters.
