I picked up The Resistance based on the cover. We've all done that on occasion and the story did not disappoint!
Dalton was super sexy and smooth, a multitude of fantasies rolled in to a really great character.
Holliday, a really fantastic female, strong, knows her own mind, knows what she wants, but an edge of vulnerability made her very endearing.
A one night stand that turns in to more.
A story filled with passion, hot fiery tempers, fantastic and witty dialogue, and most importantly, love.
Both Dalton and Holliday are great characters. S.L Scott did an amazing job building multi-layer characterizations with these two. You see so many different sides to them that they completely come to life, very believable relationship and issues.
Then we have some really good secondary characters that totally helped to drive the story.
Dex, Cory and Rochelle, loved them just as much!
And best of all, a rock star story line that takes you on all the ups and downs of fame and excess.
I wanted to read The Redemption because of how much I loved The Resistance. But already knowing this would be Dex's story, clinched the deal. Because Dex was just a mess and such a contradiction as it turned out in the end. Was very intrigued.
In The Redemption, you were the typical rock star, live to excess, not really care about anything kind of guy.
It wasn't until the end of The Resistance, after a heart breaking tragedy that we saw a completely different Dex.
Once again, S.L Scott gives us very believable characters dealing with very believable issues and circumstances.
My heart just ached for Dex and Rochelle. The loss of Cory affected them both in very different but deeply moving ways.
This story is filled to the brim with wanting something you aren't sure you should have, heartbreak, discovery, drama, passion, frustration, healing, and again most importantly, love.
Your heart will ache for Rochelle. It's been 3 years and she just wants to be OK again, to make a life with her boys. Peace and happiness. Maybe a chance at love all the while battling the guilt of wanting to move on.
Dex...my goodness I loved him in this story. I knew there was more to him than just a rowdy rock star persona. He was such a contradiction. He loves Rochelle like the day is long, he always has. With the loss of Cory, it seems there is an opportunity, but that sticky feeling called guilt just keeps bubbling to the surface every time they try. Aside from his own personal demons he needs to battle.
I was so heartsick for these two. Cheering for them. wanting to hug them both. The back and forth was exhausting and stimulating at the same time!
Such a good story and the perfect follow up to The Resistance, though both are stand alone stories with cross over characters. I would definitely read The Resistance first but not necessary.

You don't choose when.
You don't choose where.
And you don't get to choose who you fall in love with.

Torn between what she knew about him and a mysterious side he tried to hide, could she walk away or was he simply too hard to resist?
