Overview

Every rebel needs a cause—and a woman to believe in. Discover why Heidi McLaughlin raves that “the sexy, alluring bad boys of the True Brothers MC will make your mouth water” in this smoldering novel from the author of Ruthless.
 
The black-leather-clad biker who just roared up on his Harley doesn’t resemble any single father Emily Clark has ever known. But as she watches “Reb” bonding with his son, Emily realizes there’s a lot more to this bad boy than his alpha-male attitude or his sinful good looks. And when Reb takes an interest in her, there’s no way she can resist his surprisingly tender touch. The one thing Emily won’t give up is her hard-won independence.
 
As president of the True Brothers MC, Reb owes a sacred debt of loyalty to the club, but his first priority is making sure that his son grows up right. Pursuing an unexpected affair with Emily is a close second. Then a violent stalker threatens her life, and this unconventional guardian angel really turns up the heat. Nobody messes with Reb, or anyone under his protection. Trouble is, how’s he supposed to defend Emily when she insists on going it alone? He’s willing to put his life on the line for her. Now, maybe, he needs to open his heart.

I loved Reb and Emily's story even moree than the first book in the series, which was also really good. Reb is the perfect mix of badass biker and reluctant romantic. I highly recommend this book and series!

I received a free review copy of this book by NetGalley Emily is a hard-worker, working in two places to get enough money to pay the rent and to pay back the student loans she got. She goes home to see little 8-year-old Tucker sitting on the steps of their apartment complex again. She can’t stand the sight of him sad and abandoned by her mum and she decided to take him to his father. Reb is a biker and the Prez of the True Brothers MC. He is in constant argument with his wife for Tucker’s custody. He really cares about his son and he can’t stand the idea of him been neglected by his mother. Now he cares about Emily too. He can’t believe how gorgeous and innocent she is but he knows he is lucky to have her in his life. I have to say that I’m not very much into bikers but something got me to choose this book. It was probably the mention of a little kid and I have to say out loud that I don’t regret it at all. The book is well-written, fast-paced, easy to read and impossible to put it down even for a sec. I loved how Reb cares about his son and Emily. I kept smiling for the first part of the book. One of the things I liked best about this book is that Reb understands Emily so well and respect her enough to give her some time and space to understand his world and see if she can cope with it. At the same time, Emily starts to understand what she gets herself into and she doesn’t care at all as long as she can stay with Reb. She feels safe whenever she is with him and that is something worth fighting for.

Pres of the True Brothers MC, Reb's toughness in charge of his club is sometimes at odds with his softness when it comes to his new love in good girl Emily and his son Tucker. For me, that made him hot and such a great character in "Rebellious". He was also such a bad guy when he needed to be in protecting his club and family. I did not feel the connection with Emily at first, as she was almost too sugary. She did come into her own though with her mama bear protection of Tucker against his mother and standing up to Reb when she felt it was needed. MC books is a favorite genre of mine and this one did not disappoint. A stand alone in the 'True Brothers MC' series, I recommend this one for your collection. If you have not read the first book "Ruthless", I also recommend that one as you will want to find out how Zag and Jessica got together. I would like to thank NetGalley and Loveswept for gifting me with a copy of "Rebellious" and asking for my honest opinion. This is mine. 4 Stars!

I really liked this book. I enjoyed the relationship between Emily, Tucker and Reb and could have done with more scenes with the three of them together. It had just enough action to keep me interested. No over the top dramatics, no prolonged separations and no cheating are big pluses in romances for me. Looking forward to reading all of the books in the series.

Rebellious is so much different book than the first in the series. This one is rougher, writes more about MC club problems and activities. Is rougher not so soft than the first. The prez Reb is more determined, more straightforward and take what he wants. And what he really wants is sweet innocent looking Emily. They have attraction between them that cannot be ignored and they quickly become involved in relationship. But club business and stalker is ruin their happiness. God MC read. Recommended! *ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Loved this book too, I thought it was just as good as the first in the MC series, and I am looking forward to book 3. (Hope #3 is Nicole's story-book 1 was Jessica's story, & 2 is Emily's story--soooo).

Excellent read. I will definitely look for more from this author.

This book starts a few months before the epilogue in Ruthless takes place which helped explain one thing that had me confused during the epilogue. This book had so much going on, Reb was separated from Rhonda and trying to divorce her but they had to work out custody of Tucker first, even after that nasty comment that Rhonda had made about Reb not being Tucker's father (biotch) in Ruthless. Emily is the epitome of a "Good Girl" even when she wants nothing more to do than go into her house and relax after a hard day she does the right thing by taking her neighbor's son that is locked out of his apartment to his dad's place of business so that he is not outside alone waiting for his mom to show up. The chemistry between Reb and Emily was rockin like his harley. I couldn't get enough of these two, now it may be because I went from reading Ruthless right into Rebellious and wanted more of the bad boy biker and the good girl, or it may be because they just had the perfect chemistry regardless if the first book was read or not. Either way I loved Reb and Emily together. Resilient: A True Brothers MC Novel is the next book in the series I really wish there was a blurb somewhere about who the book is going to be about. Is Nicole going to hook up with one of the men from The True Brothers MC? Or will it be about Tank or Axel finding their HEA's? Only time will tell but I will be on the lookout for Resilient: A True Brothers MC Novel which is scheduled to be released in May 2017. ***I have received this book from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept through netgalley in exchange for my honest review***

There is nothing hotter than a good girl who has gone bad...Emily finds Tucker sitting on the steps when she comes home from work and he is locked out of his apartment, again, and it looks like his mom is not coming home, again. She takes him to his father and, lo and behold, he is the president of the True Brothers MC. We met Reb and Emily in the first book of this series and who would have thought these two would be perfect for each other but they totally work. She is innocent in so many ways but with her past Reb is the one who understands her. She is his sunshine. There are a lot of twists and turns and, of course, when you are talking about the True Brothers there has to be some bloodshed but it all ends up okay in the end. I LOVE THIS SERIES! **Received a copy of this from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

However that plan doesn't work out . Tucker Gifford is just a little boy and she needs to help him. Tucker's dad, Reb is the president of True Brothers MC. Lets the sparks fly!!

A Definite Must Read!! I thought that Zag was awesome in Ruthless but I have to say that Rebel had swept me away in Rebellious. he truly is an amazing individual regardless of his status as President of The True Brothers MC. He is.a loving father to 8year old Tucker.Emily is also best friends with Jessica who happens to be the wife of Zag. When Tucker is left alone again by his mother to fend for himself Emily takes matters into her own hands and goes to confront Tuckers father about his sons living conditions she has no idea who his fathers is. and she's in for a big surprise. after spending time with Reb and Tucker she can see that he is a very good father to Tucker. and when Emily starts receiving threats again from who she thinks is her ex boyfriend she tries to handle the situation herself because she is an independent person and lets no one boss her around soon enough Reb takes control and they are all in for a big surprise and Reb and his Brothers go above and beyond to make sure that she is taken care of. she finally gives into her feelings for Rebel and his nurturing ways and they begin to build their future !

A really great 2nd book in this series. 200+ pages. A stand alone with a solid HFN ending. You don't have to have read the first book to read this one. The first book was well worth reading, though. It was great seeing (lol) the other characters again. Excellent writing and editing. Really fell in love with Reb and Tucker. Still don't like Noelle.
Crystal61 More than 1 year ago
Second in the series and just as engaging. I enjoy reading about women who struggle beyond their pasts but lead "normal" lives in a strong independent manner. When they meet up with that "bad boy" who grabs their heart and shows them there is more to life. This story had Emily coming out of an abusive relationship and facing a question as to how to help her young latchkey neighbor. Taking him to his father changed her life in a big way. They work through a lot of differences and dangerous situations to become a family unit. I recommend this story and look forward to the next in the series.

Reb and Emily are great as a couple. Thanks Gillian for letting us into their romance story. Reb is the president of the Club/Motorcycle House. Emily is a single independent lady who happens to live next door to Reb's son Tucker. When Tucker is left on his own; Emily gets involved. What this means is she goes up against Reb. Both of their pasts are high gates to get over but they do achieve their HEA. This is the second book of this series but this could stand alone. Her first book Ruthless is also great.

This is the second book in the True Brother’s MC series and you don’t have to read the first book to enjoy this one. I love all MC romances from the gritty, raw, down and dirty, criminal 1% to the legal activity, rough, alpha biker romance. This book takes on the latter. If you want an MC read with a very sexy alpha biker that falls in love with a with a beautiful, feisty and independent school librarian, then this is the book for you. Emily is still paying off her student loans after getting her master’s degree. She lives in a crappy apartment and drives a crappy car and at times works two jobs. She is a librarian at the middle school and works at the local bookstore to make ends meet. Emily had a rough start in life having parents that were low life’s and she ended up in the foster care system until she made friends with Jessica, who is currently engaged to Zag, the True Brothers MC Sargent at Arms. So she is no stranger to the MC brothers. Reb is going through a nasty divorce with the woman who is the mother of his child, Tucker. A sweet boy that often gets left to fend for himself when he’s with his mother. He ends up waiting on the steps of the apartment building where Emily lives or goes to his friend’s apartment where they feed him and let him stay over until his mother shows up. Emily adores Tucker, he such an adorable, sweet little boy and she hates that his mother neglects him. She has no idea if he has a father or not until one evening she comes home from work to find Tucker waiting on the steps with a grocery bag of junk food. His mother has left him again. Emily tries to get him to go to his friend’s apartment, but he tells her he and his family are on vacation, so he has nowhere to go. Emily is furious so she asks him about his father and finally gets Tucker to agree for Emily to take him to his father. Emily is shocked when she realizes his father is a True Brothers MC member. She calls her friend Jessica to have her boyfriend come out of the clubhouse so together they can locate Tucker’s dad. Emily is shocked that his father is the President of the MC and he is not happy that Emily has shown up with his son. Emily explains to Reb what has been going on and he has had no idea that his soon to be ex-wife has been neglecting his son and he loses his temper. Emily is attracted to Reb, their chemistry is off the charts, but his temper scares her. She was abused by her high school boyfriend and he has continued to stalk and terrorize her. She has seen Reb around when her friend Jessica had been in the hospital in book one, so she knows of him, but that’s it. The chemistry between Emily and Reb is unreal! He pushes all her buttons! There are some funny moments, there are plot twists and turns as Emily continues to get harassed. Reb and the MC brothers are having issues with a rival club, so Reb’s plate is full with a crazy soon to be ex that’s fighting the divorce, trying to pursue an affair with Emily, trying to get sole custody of Tucker, and the rival MC issues. This book is fast paced and it really kept me interested. This is a sexy tender love story between a bad boy alpha biker and a feisty librarian, with some crazy action packed scenes and suspense! I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.

After a long day of work and a splitting headache to go along with it Emily Clark is ready to for some some much needed relaxation, but as soon as she arrives home she finds a surprise on her doorstep. Her pint size neighbor Tucker is in need of help, and knowing his mother will be of no service to her, she asks him where they might find his father. Which spawns a little journey that lands them in the last place Emily thought she ever be... the True Brothers MC Clubhouse. The minute she meets Reb, and enters his secluded and dangerous world she knows she is in a place she shouldn't be, but something about the sexy single dad makes her want to make a return visit... Reb is a man with many titles, not only is he the President of the True Brothers MC Club, a brother to its members, but he is also a father, and that to him means more than anything else. Right now he is in the midst of a nasty divorce and bitter custody battle, and he'd love nothing more than to have his son with him full time, and not in the custody of his absent minded mother. He knows she isn't the best provider for him, but he had no idea how bad it really was until a sexy, fired up librarian shows up on his doorstep with his son, and proceeds to tell him she found him waiting for her on her doorstep, and its not the first time it's happened. She is hesitant about leaving Tucker with him, and questions his parent skills, but soon after observing them together she learns that he's right where he should be. When it's time for her to leave Reb can't help but feel like he wants her to stay, but she's sending him the "I'm not interested vibe" so he lets her walk away... but not for too long! I have been anxiously awaiting for my opportunity return to this series, and get better acquainted with another sexy member of the True Brothers MC Club, and I have to say I really liked what I found!!! I thoroughly enjoyed the first installment in the series and have been excited to see what Ms. Archer had in store next for her wonderfully crafted characters, and I have to say it was totally worth the wait, she completely exceeded my expectations and once again provided me with one VERY exceptional reading escape! The minute I started Reb and Emily's story I was hooked, and instantly knew that I had a late night of reading ahead of me, cause there was no way I was walking away until I had devoured every single page!! I really enjoyed my time with these two, their story was seriously hot, every encounter they shared was filled with smoldering intensity, unbridled passion, & a scorching chemistry that had my tablet on the verge of melting several times!! If you like your reads a little gritty, naughty, and equipped with a sexy biker that knows how to turn up the heat, then I highly recommend you check out this series from Ms. Archer, you will not be disappointed!!!

I became a huge fan of Gillian Archer after reading the first book in the True Brother Series, and when I got an early copy of Rebellious through NetGalley, in exchange for a review, I squealed in delight and cancelled all my plans for the weekend so I could start reading immediately. The only negative thing I can say is that the book ended too soon, I wanted more, so I do what every fan does I will re-read it. I loved the complex and flawed characters and the storyline was good and moved at a steady pace. It had action, suspense and of course some steamy romance. I want to get to know all the Brothers, and it hardly seems fair to write it since the book has not officially come out yet, but I can't wait for the next one.

Reb is the president of the True Brothers MC, his loyalty to the club is his first priority besides his son. His son is one of the most important people in his life. In the first book, Ruthless, we see Reb kick Rhonda out after an argument. A year later and he is still trying to get his divorce to go through. While his best friend is engaged to Jessica, her best friend Emily, lives in the same apartment complex as his son Tucker. Emily Clark, decides she has had enough of watching Tucker sitting on the steps waiting for his mother to come home. She takes him to his father, which happens to be at the Club house. After talking to him about Tucker's well being, they begin having a relationship that neither one of them are ready for. Emily is still getting over her abusive, stalker ex who sends her a gift at least once a year. At least, that's who they think is after her. Reb puts Emily under his protection, and they soon find out the threat isn't coming from the direction they think. Will Reb be able to keep not only her, but his heart safe? While I enjoyed Zag and Jessica's book more, this book was better written. The story seemed more put together and organized. I was confused at the end of Ruthless about Emily's bandages but we find out how she was injured. I loved watching Reb be a father to Tucker, even though he didn't know for sure if he was his son, as far as he was concerned, he was. I rooted for Emily and Reb to get their HEA, after their terrible ex's they both deserved happiness. Received ARC in exchange for honest review from NetGalley

Though this second installment of the True Brothers MC series isn’t as dark and gritty as the first book, I absolutely adored Emily and Reb. Theirs is a much softer, sweeter romance, but steeped in tension to keep me flipping the pages. Reb is fighting his soon to be ex-wife for custody of his eight year old son,Tucker and Emily is determined to simply fight her own battles against her ex, Micheal. She’s become the target of a stalker, and this person is getting more violent every day. Emily is kindhearted and she awakens the tenderness in, Reb, but that tender side doesn’t change the scary, tough-as-nails biker, Reb from wanting to hurt the person who’s threatening the woman he’s falling for and put Emily under his protection. Reb is also the president of the True Brothers MC, which means that anyone who messes with one of his, messes with him, and he’ll stop at nothing to make sure his people are protected. Like his son and Emily. The whole love affair and the steamy bedroom scenes between Reb and Emily had me swooning. There was a great deal of buildup between them and I loved every minute of watching their love develop. Like I said, this book was not as dark, but the light it shinned into this raw and gritty MC world was an endearing contrast. It’s definitely a must read for MC lovers and true romantics at heart.

Everyone knows the Pres is the badest of the bad, and Reb proves that! Rebellious is the 2nd book in the True Brothers MC series, and it is definitely a scorcher! Rebel, or Reb as he is called, is a true alpha male from the start of the book and he makes no bones about who he is or how he does things. I have to admit, I originally didn't like Emily too much when I started to read the story. Her character didn't seem like someone that Reb would go for, but Gillian Archer had me liking her in no time. In this book, the reader will find danger, intrigue, disgust, and enough passion to make the pages sizzle. I will definitely be adding Gillian Archer to my autobuy authors list.

I really enjoyed this one! Fantastic writing and story. Reb and Emily are great characters and I adored Tucker. Rhonda not so much. The only thing that kept this from being a 5 star read for me was the lightning speed the relationship between Reb and Emily formed. One minute she's berating him for being an uncaring father (and yeah talking to an MC Pres like that ... hmmm) the next she's at his house and bam! The pairing is intriguing though. Big bad biker pres and the sweet local librarian. I loved it. Then when he finds out Emily is being threatened by a stalker he vows to protect her with the full force of the MC behind him and a wild and crazy times begin. This is definitely a book I recommend!

I was so excited when I got this book! Gillian Archer left an impression with the first book, Ruthless. I'm finding that I'm a huge fan of the True Brothers MC. Zag from Ruthless is a tough man to beat and he'll probably always be my favorite, but Rebel sure came close. He's the Prez, the top dog at True Brothers MC and that alone is hawt! The fact that he is described as huge and built more like a football player cinched it for me. Shallow, I know. I mentioned in my review of Ruthless that I hoped Gillian Archer would pair up one of Jessica's best friends with a True Brother for her next book and I got my wish. Emily has a new neighbor. The woman is hateful but she can't help but fall for her 8 year son. The poor kid is left to his own devices more than he should be. Emily finds Tucker sitting on the complex steps, locked out of the apartment with no idea when his mom will come home one too many times. She knows she has to do something about it so she coaxes Tucker into telling her where his dad is and drives him over to the True Brothers MC clubhouse. If it wasn't for Tucker she would turn right back around and go home. Emily is determined to talk to his dad and hope that he steps up to the plate for his boy. Little did she know is that Tucker's dad is Rebel, the Prez to the MC club her best friends boyfriend belongs too. This book was entertaining. You have little, ole Emily who's scared of her own shadow go up against big, bad Rebel to try and protect Tucker from his mothers negligence. Rebel takes one look at Emily and he knows she will belong to him. Throw in the crazy soon to be ex wife and a rival MC club making waves and you got a recipe for disaster!
