The Rebellious One by Jeanette Lewis


Holly Clarke is all set to marry the man of her dreams. Or rather, the man of her parents’ dreams. Whoever heard of a girl in 2016 America being betrothed? Holly knows she has to find a way out of the engagement—especially when she meets mysterious, sexy Jordan Fischler. But Jordan has a secret, and loving him could mean the end of everything Holly knows.

My Review 4.5 Stars

Holly has grown up on Le Ciel her whole life. She loved it and hated it at the same time. She views the resort as an older sibling that her parents loved more than her. They never seemed to have time for her growing up. They always put the resort first. Everything was done to "better the resort".

Holly has known forever that she would marry Brit, the son of her father's partner, to make sure that the resort stays in the families. She's never really given any thought to it until she goes to her best friend, Nikki's wedding. She sees the way that Nikki and Darrin look at each other, as if they are the only two people in the room, and she longs to have that for herself. 

When Holly and Jordan first meet they are instantly drawn to each other. There is just something that makes them want to be near each other, to get to know each other better. Jordan has Holly questioning everything she has ever known and has her wanting to put herself first. to find the happiness that she deserves. But Jordan has a secret that he's keeping from Holly. This secret could destroy everything she has ever known. But he's falling for Holly and now he's torn. Does he choose the path that he's been planning for his entire life? Or does he choose Holly? 

Now they both will have to decide which is more important, their happiness or the resort? 

The Rebellious One is such a fun addition to this series! Le Ciel sounds like an absolutely perfect place that I would LOVE to visit! Especially the Secret Garden! I was sucked in from the very beginning and stayed up way past my bedtime finishing this book! It was the perfect getaway! I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out! 

And can we take just a minute to admire the cover?! It is GORGEOUS! I think this is my favorite one in the series so far! So fun! 

Of course we can't forget the casting. What do you think?! Can you picture these two has Holly and Jordan?!
