Taming the Rebel by Dawn Klehr

Rebel Hart should be at home taking care of her father after his breakup with his boyfriend, not tromping through the woods at summer camp. He’s had his heart broken beyond repair, and the way she sees it, there’s only one person to blame—the boyfriend’s son. So when that infuriatingly gorgeous quarterback turns up at the same camp, she plans to make him pay.

Justice Brody isn't happy about trading training camp for actual summer camp. But if he wants to stay on the football team, he has to show that he can be drama-free. He welcomes the anonymity that comes with summer camp...until he realizes the one girl who knows him better than anyone is there, too. Rebel is off-limits, impossibly beautiful...and trouble with a capital T. Still, he can’t stay away. And even as Rebel exacts her revenge, in several very embarrassing and painful ways, neither can she.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains pranks, adult language, and kisses that will make you wish for a summer romance of your own.

Rebel loves her dad more than anything. When he breaks up with his boyfriend, she holds a grudge against Justice (her dad's ex-boyfriend's son). He sends her off to camp for the summer where she comes face to face with Justice. She is happy to take action, and engage in a little juvenile revenge. Justice is having a hard time coming to terms with his families change in outlook. He isn't ready to tell the world his Dad is gay. He needs clarity, and to come to terms with his situation before he loses everything. This is a sweet teen romance read about accepting what you can't control. It has some pranks, hot kisses, and forgiveness. I really liked Justice's character he is complex. He is an athletic type but has the usual teen hang ups. He comes across as confident, but actually, he is just trying to find his way. I wasn't too sure about Rebel when I started reading this book. She has a negative outlook and is afraid to live life. Her dad means everything to her, and she was willing to give up everything to make him happy. Luckily he sent her to camp where she manages to start working through her issues. She grew on me by the end of the book, but I didn't love her. I would recommend this book for the prankster's lovers. It's an easy bedtime read. 3 stars out of 5. *I received an ARC in exchange for a fair review

as the titular rebel in taming the rebel, rebel hart's name might be a bit too on the nose. she's always marched to the beat of her own drummer. growing up with two dads outside of atlanta she kind of had to make her own way. and it's always worked for her. so she just doesn't get justice brody. she's pretty sure he's the reason his dad broke up with hers. and blowing her off seems to be his thing. and now that they've ended up at camp together he can pretty much expect all out prank wars. and it's true that rebel doesn't understand justice's side of the story. he certainly hopes he's not the reason their dads broke up. but now that they have it's less weird to pursue rebel and his feelings for her. and she's never been subjected to the kind of verbal abuse and teasing he's experienced in the football locker room at school. so when he doesn't want to talk about his dad and his relationship with rebel's dad, it's not a rejection of her, it's more about protecting himself. because he wasn't always the hot football player. he was the skinny undersized kid with the big arm who was kind of a dork. and as they spend time together at camp, rebel comes to see that justice isn't the jerk she imagines him to be. their connection strengthens the more they have a chance to talk. and while rebel needs to learn to be more empathetic and patient, justice needs to learn to be less insecure and a little more brave. not easy things when you are a teenager. but when they take a moment and stop being ruled by their emotions, they realize that what they share is something actually worth fighting for. **taming the rebel will publish on august 14, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (crush) in exchange for my honest review.

This was such a fun and sweet summer-time romance. I don't know if it was the enemies-to-more trope that worked so well in this story or the fun camp setting, but I found myself devouring this book while a huge smile graced my face. Rebel won my heart from page one. She loved her dad so fiercely, she was going to wage war with the boy, who she blamed for the demise of his romantic relationship. How do you not back someone with that type of family loyalty? Rebel was smart and sassy, but it was revealed that she was sort of wounded and actually wore her angst as armor. This girl was not afraid to be herself, and I was team Rebel from the start. Well, until I knew a little more about Justice. Rebel described Justice as your a self-centered jock, but as I got to know Justice better, I learned that there was a lot more to him then met the eye. He was dealing with tons of unresolved issues. Some issues were relating to his dad's, his anger mis-management, and from his not so happy past. Justice was dealing with so many complex emotions, and he often made poor choices to protect himself from these feelings. But he had such a sweet side, and he melted my heart when he let it show. I adored the dynamic between Rebel and Justice. I knew right away that I wanted this ship to succeed. They had so many delightful bouts of verbal sparring, but then they would have these really swoony. They also had some really honest talks, and bared their souls to each other. There were hijinks and many comedic moments. I couldn't help but enjoy myself. The setting for the bulk of this book is a mountain summer camp. I never went to summer camp, but have always been fascinated by it. I loved all the traditional camp elements that Klehr built into this story. It absolutely added to the fun. The dances, the activities, and the lake all played a little role in the story, but my favorite were the pranks. I loved waiting to see what Rebel or Justice would do next. I also have to talk about the survival guide. In order to alleviate some of her anxiety during her first year of sleep-away camp, Rebel's dad gave her Wolf Wilk's Guide to Surviving Any Disaster. This was not only her handbook for surviving life out in the woods, but it became her guide to life. It also served as Rebel's security blanket, odd but true. I thought it was a lot of fun getting peeks into this book, and the random facts were amusing as well. This was an adorable story, filled with lots of fun moments, but also a lot of tender and sweet moments. There were some really strong friendships as well as touching family ties.
