Her Rebel Heart by Jamie Farrell

A sexy military pilot is about to meet his match in an unpredictable physics professor!

Kaci Boudreaux is every Southern mama's nightmare, including her own. This former Miss Grits would rather tromp around in boots shooting off potato guns-and her mouth-than dress pretty and play nice with the boys. Especially her chauvinistic fellow professors, her ex-husband, and those military cargo pilots she accidentally started a war with.

Lance Wheeler is every Southern belle's dream, except his ex-fiancé's. After being left at the altar, he'd love to take his C-130 and fly far, far away. But since his bird technically belongs to Uncle Sam (as does he), a distraction in the form of a feisty fireball of a physics professor will do while he's waiting for his next deployment with the Air Force.

He's into her for the fun. She's into him for the challenge. But when their secrets start slipping out, their hearts will be on the line. She needs roots. He wants to see the world. What will they do about needing each other?

4 star Review Her Rebel Heart (The Officer's Ex-Wives Club #1 by Jamie Farrell This was a new author to me and what a great book to have as my first read, I laughed so much I cried. When hot and sexy pilot Lance Wheeler is left at the altar, what's a guy to do? Drown his sorrows in a bar and Kaci Boudreaux a smart and sassy physics professor who comes along and joins him at the bar to have a few drinks. When fate brings them together at a later date, it is not only the pumpkins that are flying but also sparks of attraction and competitiveness. There were so many times that I snort laughed reading this book, I simply could not put it down. Full of laughter there were some tugs to the emotional heart strings as I read and although the quirky and colourful language left me a little lost on occasion (I'm Australian) I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Will Lance's wanderlust break these two up before they can get together? Or will Kaci finally find the man of her dreams and achieve the happily ever after she has been looking for? The secondary characters were awesome and I cannot wait to find out more about them. Apparently this is the prequel to this series so I will be getting the others as soon as I can.I will be looking at other books written by Jamie Farrell as this was such a good read.

This couple had me laughing out loud to the point of spitting my cup of tea out all over my hubby !!! Lance is a hot Airforce pilot who is drowning his sorrows after being left at the altar, he meets Kaci the ex beauty queen who is now a physics professor in the bar and he steals a kiss but then runs off. They run in to each other at a local catapult competition and sparks as well as pumpkins fly, she believes her all girls Team have got the competition won this year after all she has the physics worked out and when the Airforce Team win on the final throw she throws a temper tantrum and accuses them of cheating and all sorts. This is where the fun really begins..... This book is hilarious and the scenes with the potato gun, the catapult and the boar will leave you with tears in your eyes from laughing but it's not all about laughter there are also some heart felt moments with Miss Higgs (Kaci's elderly cat) and when they both realise they could love again. I loved reading the crazy world of Kaci and Lance and can't wait to read more from The Officers Ex Wife's Club. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. This book was supplied by the publisher through NetGalley

Miss Farrell has created another amazing story. Her characters are always fresh and have great chemistry. Kaci is full of sass and Lance can't keep himself away from her. This is a must read that will have you laughing out loud so much you won't want to put it down. I can't wait to see what Miss Farrell comes up with next. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author.

As with every Jamie Farrell book, Her Rebel Heart is an absolutely funny, quirky and light-hearted read. It will be sure to lift your spirits if you are feeling down, and make you laugh throughout the entire book. I absolutely adore strong-headed sassy heroines and Kaci definitely fits the bill. And Lance is definitely a great hero for her. I really loved this book and give Ms Farrell both thumbs up for the amazing read.

No one but NO ONE can make you laugh and smile like this author. Her characters are a delight, her plots are outstanding as she brings you a story that is unique and refreshing. There is nothing like a sassy rebel who won’t back down matched with a military man who wants the prefect officer’s wife that knows her place. When these to meet they combust neither giving the other space. Whether it is talking, kissing, blowing things up or making love they match fire with fire as you hold your breath to see if anyone is left stand when the smoke clears. I really laughed hard at these two and all they get into. They are always trying to get one up on the other. Kaci doesn’t want a military man she left one years ago who won’t leave her alone. She has a very big fear that Lance is willing to help her with. He wants some fun and he loves pulling her chain. She takes the bait and runs with it. Hey buttheads over and over again trying to oust best the other. I love the plot, characters and the humor you will laugh yourself silly over the things they do to each other. Things do get serious with serious issues that will pull on your heart strings. It is a well balanced story that hooks you from the first page, keeps you invested as the author gives you a highly entertaining read. You do not want to start this late at night you won’t be able to put it down. If you want to smile, laugh, and shake your head I high recommend you pick this up and give it a read.

Kaci Boudreaux is a woman I would love to have as a friend. She is kicking butt in a male dominated field. The book starts with her meeting up with Lance Wheeler in a bar. They share a scorching hot kiss, but then he went running off. She had no idea it was supposed to be his wedding day and doesn't plan on seeing him again. At least until she shows up for a contest and is found encouraging her group of physics students in a pumpkin chucking contest. Little does she realize that the group they are up against contains none other than Lance Wheeler and his Air Force buddies. That leads them into each other's paths repeatedly. I enjoyed reading their road to their happily ever after.

I absolutely loved Kaci and Lance. Kaci with her sassy southern charm and Lance with his patience and near understanding make them an almost perfect couple. So many snort inducing moments along with the heartaches. The perfectly blended story! Kaci has sworn of men. And military men to be exact. Then a chance meeting and one of the hottest kisses shes ever had happens and nothing is the same. Lance lives flying. And he loves his military career. He knows that flying is going to let him see the world. And when his fiancee leaves him almost at the altar everything changes. Then Kaci happens. Her upbeat out there personality is more than he's ever seen before. And he can't get eniugh of her. But he knows it can't last. She's a college professor and he's deploying in a few weeks. They weren't looking for anything lasting but neither expected what happened. Can they overcome heartache and distance to be together? Will Kaci throw it all away because of his military background or will she listen to her rebel heart and take a chance on love?

If you are looking for an explosive, fun, contemporary romance story a little bit redneck and a lot military hot, give Her Rebel Heart by Jamie Farrell a read. Who would have thought a hillbilly physics professor who is a star in her field and an ace Air Force pilot would be so entertaining to read about? This author tells the most fantastic stories about characters and situations I have no idea hot to relate to, yet, I am fully engaged in each story. Her Rebel Heart was no different. Kaci is a woman in a man’s world of academia and science. She loves what she does and wants all of her students to know they can make a difference regardless of their gender. Oh and she also wants her ex-husband, Ron, a chemist, to leave her the heck alone. I love how different Kaci is from many other romance heroines. She can turn on sophisticated charm or the redneck at the drop of a hat. Lance is biding his time for his next deployment while trying to get over his ex-fiance who left him. He is restless and just wants to get away. He is not interested in jumping back into a relationship, but after one kiss from a hot, sassy, southern girl named Kaci, it may not be completely up to him. Her Rebel Heart is such a fun book. Sure, there is flirting, intimacy, and heartbreak as all romance books have, but the back and forth between Kaci and Lance is unpredictable up until the very end. The pranks they plan on one another and the challenges they dish out are what keep the reader turning the pages. From pumpkin chucking to stealing hearts, Kaci and Lance are falling hard. Farrell does a fabulous job in Her Rebel Heart of balancing out the romance in the story along with the personal demons that Lance and Kaci are fighting themselves. The story will entertain you from beginning to end. If you are looking for a fun, sexy, sassy, romance, give Her Rebel Heart a read.

Her Rebel Heart by Jamie Farrell is a well-written and witty romance revolving around Kaci Boudreaux and Lance Wheeler. Kaci and Lance have a case of instant attraction to each other. She’s not the normal southern belle and the polar opposite of his ex and he’s all military. Kaci knows all about the military, her ex-husband was one. Apart from the sizzling kiss in the beginning, the romance is a slow burn. Both fight it in the beginning. Kaci’s a bad idea and Lance spent all his life chasing good ones. But the chemistry is there and it’s explosive. Kaci is my type of girl. The woman with a heart of a redneck. She’s not afraid to try new things and get in your face. She’s sassy and so much fun. As for Lance, well, he’s a pumpkin cheater, but that’s all right. He makes up for it in all other areas. Thank you to the author for the glossary of military terms. I would have never guessed correctly, so thanks for the education. Overall, this was a great book that had me smiling at every page. Highly recommended!

If you're looking for a book to keep you laughing look no further. I laughed a lot while I was reading this one.Right from the beginning I knew I was going to like this one. I really liked the heroine Kaci. She's so super smart, but she has such a likable, relatable side to her. I loved the back and forth pranking. This book was highly entertaining. Then you have Lance and Kaci together. A lot of chemistry between them. At first glance you wouldn't think these two would be a fit for each other, but slowly they reveal a little more of themselves and you know they're a perfect fit. That doesn't mean they're not going to have their bumps in the road. I love the gesture Lance made at the end it truly shows he gets Kaci.

When Kaci and Lance come face to face on the punkin' chunkin' battleground it's all out war between the sexes and every single sassy as hell skirmish between them was delightfully entertaining and made me laugh out loud. Kaci is a petite bulldog with a brilliant mind and a redneck attitude that was the perfect foil for her broken hearted insecurities that made me love her, quirks and all. And sexy, disillusioned fly boy Lance's clueless heart of gold was both tenderly appealing and equally infuriating because at times he made decisions that I definitely did not agree with. I enjoyed all of Lance's military friends, especially Juice Box, and really appreciated the glossary of military terms that the author kindly provided to enhance my enjoyment of the story. This is a fun, flirty and sexy romance that brought out many different emotions in me while taking both characters on a journey of personal growth and self discovery that I found both healing and redeeming. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.

Lance Wheeler was ditched five days before his wedding. He wanted to fly but his commander had grounded him. Instead he is sitting on a bar stool. Next thing he knew there was a little blonde standing next to him. He figured out that she was trying to make someon jealous. He kissed her then realized he couldn't do this. He didn't even know her name. I loved this book. Lance and Kaci Boudreaux were as different as they come. Kaci was scary smart and had to fight for everything because she was a female in what is perceived as a man's world. Kaci is a bit of a wild child and gets into the most fun and tangled situations imaginable! I laughed, I cried and I loved it. This book is bound to brighten your world.

Her Rebel Heart is my new favorite Jamie Farrell book. Ms Farrell has once again wow'd me with her amazing storytelling abilities. Her Rebel Heart is a well-written book with phenomenal characters. Kaci is a physics professor that turns over the top redneck as soon as she steps away from her classroom. Lance is a jilted at the alter USAF pilot. Ms Farrell has furnished this book with dialog that rocks this hysterically funny book. There is plenty of drama, action and spice to keep readers enthralled with this fun story. Her Rebel Heart is part of The Officers' Ex-Wives Club Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I loved this book from the first page to the last and look forward to my next Jamie Farrell book. This book will probably be my favorite book of the month, and no doubt will be in my top ten books of the year. Yep, it's just that good. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

A Crazy, Wild, Sassy and Wickedly Smart Small Town Military Romance. If you like your hero to be sinfully hot, crazy smart and way to much fun to be legal. Or your Leading Ladies so perfectly, imperfect it just makes you want to hug them better and never let go then this is most defiantly the story you are looking for. Kaci is so unapologetic, and adorably real, Lance is so insightful and strong that they make the best kind of explosive combination. Emotional and Entertaining adventure as they figure out what the future may hold. Loved her best friend and all his squad mates, looking forward to also getting to know his sister. Third book out, but first in the series Love it! Must read book two now...

A laugh out romance that I could not put down. Kaci, a southern belle physics professor that loves her potato gun and not afraid of saying what she feels. Lance is a military pilot that was left at the alter and looking for a little fun until his next deployment. But will this short time be enough for either one of them. The banter between Kaci and Lance will have you laughing out loud. The southern redneck, Kaci is my new favorite character of Jamie Farrell. I highly recommend this book!!

Kaci Boudreaux and Lance Wheeler meet the day he should be getting married and Kaci received the news she was chosen to go to Germany to be keynote speaker. She is terrified of flying!!! When she sees her ex-hubby, Ron or Ol' Grandpappy, the name Tara calls him, lol, she asks Lance to play along and kisses him. He does at first, but then runs away. Tara is Kaci's best friend and roommate. The next time Kaci meets Lance is when his guys beat her girls at the catapult contest. Let the fun begin, lol. This book is full of laugh out loud moments, but also includes so much more. I recommend this book to anyone who likes some laughs with their romance. Jaime Farrell writes books with amazing characters that suck you right into her stories. Whether you're new to her books or a long-time fan of hers, one-click Her Rebel Heart and get ready to fall in love! I received an advance reader copy of this book and this is my voluntary and honest review.

I want to be Kaci’s friend. Kaci breaks all conventions being an amazing physicist after being raised as a southern belle. Her mouth tends to get her in trouble as it starts before her brain can stop it but deep down, this is who she is, fearless and determined to prove everyone wrong about whatever the situation may be. Lance finds himself “stuck” in Georgia after following his ex-fiance to be stationed in Gellings. When he crosses path with this fiery woman he finds that maybe this isn’t such a bad place to be. As Lance works to get under Kaci’s skin and embraces all her unconventional behavior, they both find themselves in unfamiliar territory. Kaci has never had anyone just accept her for who she is so Lance is a shock for her. Lance never dreamed he would want chaos in his well-ordered military life but when it’s gone, finds he misses the way it grounded him. I loved every laugh out loud moment of this romance. Kaci is a breath of fresh air and Lance is her perfect foil. Another fabulous romance from Jamie Farrell with her trademark blend of humor, drama and romance. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

Her Rebel Heart by Jamie Farrell.....Wow, this is my favorite book by the amazing Jamie Farrell. All her books are awesome, but this story deserves 10 stars. I was laughing so hard at times it brought tears to my eyes with all the bantering between Kaci and Lance. There is also plenty of sexy times as well, you get all the feels in this masterpiece. Lance a hot Military pilot, who gets dumped by his fiancee and Kaci a feisty southern belle who is beautiful, strong and a physics professor with a smart mouth. If you are looking for a fun, sweet and full of southern banter you will want to read this book. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Jamie Farrell has a hit with Her Rebel Heart. It's a crazy, sexy, just plain fun read. Kaci is a force of nature- she keeps Lance off his game pretty much from the first moment they met. Lance is a military pilot & has the swagger of a flyboy. Together they are an entertaining duo that keep the story moving in a unique direction with their off the wall antics. I am a huge Jamie Farrell fan & this book was one of her best yet. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! I giggled. I grrrred. And I belly laughed out loud. I fell so hard for Kaci Boudreaux that Captain Lance Wheeler could have been a total waste and I would still have loved this book. But he isn’t. Lance is kind, patient, and a total stud. His only shortcoming as far as I can tell is that he is a Bama fan. Honestly for a good time read Her Rebel Heart.
Linda__ More than 1 year ago
LOVED this book! Fun twist on a contemporary military romance. I just adored Kaci - a physicist and ultimate Bama girl - complete with punkin chucker, potato gun, and all the "bless your hearts" a southern girl can spare. Lance is the sexy flyboy that is hotter than sin and who Kaci kisses one night without even knowing his name. Kaci and Lance continue to encounter each other in circumstances so funny, I laughed out loud. Kaci has sworn off military men and pilots in particular, but they keep seeing each other. Their chemistry was palpable and the southernisms delightful. This book kept me smiling and totally engaging. While I knew it had to end, I was sorry when it was over and am already looking forward to the next book in the series. Fans of the genre will love this book. I've added the author to my must read authors' list.

Her Rebel Heart is book one in The Officers’ Ex-Wives Club by Jamie Farrell. Books two and three are already out in this series. This is a full length novel but also sort of a prequel that lets us know how the Officers’ Ex-Wives Club came to be. I love Jamie Farrell’s books but she took this one to a whole new level of crazy. I have to admit, though, that it reminded me a lot of the next book in the series, Southern Fried Blues, which is one of my favorite books ever. So, yeah, I loved this one as well. Dr. Kaci Boudreaux is a physics professor at James Robert College hoping to achieve her tenure in two years. Kaci is brilliant, sassy, southern to the core but more than everything else put together, Kaci is crazy! Underneath all that stiff spine and bravado, though, is a woman with fears, dreams and doubts. She just does a better job at keeping it all hidden. Two years ago Kaci and her husband divorced. But now he has followed her to Georgia and is making her miserable. She doesn’t need him or any other man in her life. She’s off men for awhile. Lance Wheeler is a pilot for the Air Force. He transferred to Gellings AFB because that’s where his fiance needed to be. But then she dumped him right before the wedding. So it’s on what should have been his wedding night while sitting in a bar when this beautiful blonde woman sits next to him saying she’s trying to escape her ex who is watching her. And what follows is the best kiss of his life, ever! But he doesn’t even know her name. And this was supposed to be his wedding night. “That blonde was a bad idea. But he’d spent most of his life chasing good ideas. Maybe a bad idea was exactly what he needed.” Thus starts the crazy start to whatever it was between Lance and Kaci. Kaci and her pumpkin launcher and her potato gun. Kaci and her pranks that could have ended up putting her in jail! But also, the sweet Kaci. The Kaci that somehow worked her way inside of Lance’s mind and heart. Kaci that would never admit to anyone she has weaknesses but admits her secrets to Lance. “The woman who was supposed to be his distraction was rapidly becoming a fascination.” Kaci likes her life here. She doesn’t want to get mixed up with another fly boy. She loves her job, her students, her research. Lance is scheduled for deployment soon. Then he planned to transfer, to see the world. But why does leaving suddenly not seem like such a great idea? “She was simply a woman who wanted him, and he was a man going mad over needing her.” I am just in love with this book. Lance and Kaci did everything wrong, they were flawed and imperfect, sweet and crazy and sexy and funny, and I loved them. The hilarity that is Kaci Boudreaux never stops. And Lance’s life will never be the same.

Ms. Farrell's humorous delivery is enough to have readers in stitches. A tomboy physics professor with a no nonsense attitude and a care free playboy trying to mend his battered ego are a combo worth sinking your teeth into. When the brain and the brawn collide, it's enough to set off a fireworks show. Yet when hearts enter the equation, can they survive the repercussions? Her Rebel Heart gave me just what I wanted. A heroine as smart as she is tough. A hero who was not afraid to man up, when the going got rough and a cast of players that make irresistible into a fine work of art.
