The guy from the wrong side of the tracks…

Being promoted should be a dream come true, only it means working closely with Cleo’s childhood crush, Jax Monroe. Jax may no longer be the rebel she remembers, but he still gets her heart racing like no other.

Jax cares too much about Cleo to let her get too close—but keeping his distance is proving impossible! As Jax reveals the extent of what he’s been through, will Cleo show him that some things are too precious to put off until tomorrow?

I have not read a Harlequin romance in a while, so it was nice to read one again. The Return of the Rebel is light and fluffy story, low on drama and without sex scenes. It is one of those romances that can be hand down from grandma, to mother, to daughter.

The Return of the Rebel is second chance story told from the POV of both main characters. The characters are likable, although I preferred Cleo over Jax. Cleo is much stronger character than Jax. She knows how to take things into her own hands in order to get their happy-end. I expected that Jax would be more alpha rebel, but actually he was just a boy from the wrong side of the tracks.

The story is interesting and it flows nicely and both characters change and grow by the end of it and all issues raised are resolved nicely. It contains a bit of suspense but it is not romantic suspense novel.

The Return of the Rebel is great summer read.
