Blog Tour feat Review and Giveaway:
Rebel by Callie Hart!!!


Rebel and Sophia's story.

The first of a three part series. This novel contains a small snippet which has already been released in the Owned: An Alpha Anthology, however it is followed by a full story installment.


Sometimes, you don't mean to become another person. Sometimes the choice is made for you, and pretending is the only thing that keeps you going. When Alexis Romera is taken and her kidnappers find her fake ID in her purse, she must become Sophia in order to keep her family safe. Revealing her real identity to the man she's sold to would be easy enough, but can she trust him? Hell bent on revenging the murder of his uncle, Rebel doesn't seem all that interested in playing things safe. In fact, nothing about the secretive, dark and brooding MC president seems safe at all.


What do you do when the man who raised you is murdered, and the only witness is kidnapped girl who's being sold as a sex slave? You buy her, of course. As president to the most powerful motorcycle club in America, Rebel isn't lacking in power. There are strings the man can pull, and entire criminal organisations and corporate businesses alike would fall to their knees. However, along with such power comes intense interest. The DEA have their eye fixed solely on the MC...and they're just waiting for Rebel to trip up. Getting Sophia to testify is the only way to bring the Los Oscuros cartel down. The beautiful, dark haired, dark eyed woman is belligerent and uncooperative and unlikely to bend to his will, but Rebel has a few tricks up his sleeve to make her compliant--he'll charm her until she's bending over backwards to please him. Of course, falling for her might cause a few hiccups along the way...

My Review:

Holy crap, Rebel was deliciously entertaining!

Alexis Romero is on her way home one evening when she finds herself in the wrong place at the absolute worst time. After witnessing a horrible murder, she’s taken by one group of men and sold to another. Gone is the only life that she knew. To protect her family, she hides her real identity and takes on the role of Sophia – the name that was on her fake ID.

Rebel, the President of the Widow Makers MC, saved Sophia for attempting to help his Uncle – the man who was murdered in cold blood. Now he wants her to testify in court and help take down the men responsible.

With danger lurking around every corner and feelings starting to get in the way, will these two be able to come to an understanding before it’s too late?

First and foremost, I was a huge fan of the Blood and Roses Series so I was no stranger to Rebel and Sophia. That being said, this is a standalone and you’ll be able to follow everything clearly if you’re just jumping in now.

To say that I loved Rebel would be an understatement. He’s complex. Devoted. Passionate. Loyal. Crazy as hell. I’ll even freely admit that I loved him more than I did Zeth. That’s right, I went there. The things that he does to get girls out of less than ideal situations? The way he’s so determined to get justice for his Uncle and Cousin? The way you can see him slowly let go the more he’s around Sophia? It all just made me fall for him that much harder.

Sophia was the pleasant surprise for me. I wasn't the biggest fan of hers when we met her in the Blood and Roses Series. I hated what she put her family through. What she put Sloane through. But then again, I didn't know her STORY. This girl has spunk. She’s feisty and at times smart mouthed. She’s brave. I can honestly say that I had a little girl crush going on as the story progressed, and I can’t wait to dive back into her head.

Callie has this habit of drawing you so deep into the world that she’s created that you’re at a loss of what to do once the story ends. Luckily for us, that’s what social media is for. So you can stalk her until book two is ready to be published.

If you’re looking for something new to read then I highly recommend picking up a copy of Rebel. It was one of those 5 star reads where I was turning the pages until I could barely keep my eyes open because I was so tired kind of books. And who doesn't love those??


“It’s time for you to tell me your name.” She arches an eyebrow at me. I can just imagine her getting them waxed in some fancy fucking boutique beauty parlor in Seattle, run by Asian hipsters with shaved undercuts and thick glasses. She seems like the type. “Why do you want to know?” she asks, cockiness filling her voice.

“I’m asking because I need something to call you. And if you don’t tell me your name, I’m going to be forced to call you One Eighty-One. And I’m guessing you won’t like being called One Eighty-One.”

“Why would you call me that?”

“Because that’s the reference Hector Ramirez gave you when you uploaded your picture onto his skin site. Hector tags his girls chronologically. The first girl he sold was number one. The fifty-third girl he sold was tagged fifty-three. Using that logic, guess how many girls he sold before he tagged you one eight one?”

“So a hundred and eighty other women came before me?” She looks like she’s going to throw up.

“Exactly. And he hasn't been caught. The police haven’t raided his place out there in the desert. No one has reported his website. No one came to rescue the one hundred and eighty other girls who came before you, and no one is coming for you, either. So if you want reminding of that every single time I call you one eight—"

“Sophia!” She screws her eyes shut, clenching her jaw. “My name is fucking Sophia, motherfucker.” She spits out the words like they’re poison. When she looks at me again, I can see the fury burning in the dark depths of her dark brown eyes. She comes alive when she’s angry. A thrill of adrenalin stabs through me, sending mixed signals to my cock; provoking such a violent reaction from her is provoking an entirely different reaction from me. For the first time, I see her. Fucking Sophia. I don’t see her as a means to an end—a potential way to take down the bastard who killed my uncle. I see her. I see her as a woman, and she is beautiful.

“Alright, Sophia. It’s a pleasure to meet you.”

About The Author:

Callie has experienced many changes throughout her life, and gone through many ups and downs that have all worked towards shaping and molding her into the person she is today: fun loving, active, social, and hard working. The only thing that has remained a constant throughout her life is writing. Creating characters who will tear your conscience in two is a favorite pastime of Callie’s. There are few real saints and sinners in her books; more often, the denizens of her stories are all very human. Broken, flawed, and always with the potential for redemption.

Despite the subject matter being markedly hot and heavy in comparison to the stories she wrote in elementary school, there will always be an element of fairytale to her work.
