I’ve done very bad things.
I’m not a good man.
There’s skeletons in my closet
And blood on my hands.
I should be reaching for that sliver of light.
But deep in the darkness lies the loyalty of my friends. Along with the secrets we’ve buried.
It’s become comfortable and safe and all I really know.
It’s all that I deserve.
Yet, there’s someone who thinks I’m worthy of conviction.
She’s the solemn in this chaotic world.
Frail and pale as snow with a cross around her neck.
She’s nothing I want, but everything I desire.
But she has secrets, too.
And keeping hers safe means I’m forced to expose mine.
She could be my chance at redemption.
Or she could be my biggest mistake of all.
“Take my hand,
I’ll show you the way.
There’s light in the dark.
I’ll keep your demons at bay.”

THE REDWOOD REBELS are back and they're once again up to no good with their dark and twisted secrets that will leave you wholeheartedly consumed as you inhale all the words of this phenomenal page turner. Rachel Leigh is a brilliant storyteller and her characters are beautifully flawed in a way that you will instantly form this deep connection with them. My emotions were in overdrive, leaving my heart an emotional mess as I found my heart completely captivated by this epic tale.
Lars Titan is that quintessential bad boy with a cocky attitude that will have leave you all hot and bothered. He was a man of few words in the previous book, but there was just that little something about him that has intrigued me since the beginning and honestly I was so freaking excited to get to know him on a much deeper level. He is definitely the kind of character that keeps surprising you with every new twist and turn. Can I just admit that he was undeniably swoon-worthy and I might have had to change my panties after getting to know this sexy man.
Willa Mack is that little sweet and innocent pastor's (step)daughter that gets tangled up in a BET between Lars Titan and Zed King (my sexy, dark and mysterious man) that ultimately changes her life in a MAJOR way. She is just your typical granny sweater wearing shy and timid girl that should have NEVER gotten mixed up with the Redwood Rebels, but she did and her life will never be the same again. Willa is one of those characters that grows immensely throughout the story and let me just say that I had myself a lady boner for this heroine. Since I couldn't technically stake claim Lars (stupid rules saying you can't take all of Rachel Leigh's heroes), I decided that Willa had to be ALL mine because I am not afraid to say that I am in LOVE with this heroine and the strength she had.
HEATHEN was a breathtakingly emotional romance that had me head over heels in love with this couple. Lars and Willa are complete opposites, but truth be told I couldn't imagine a more perfect match because Lars needed someone to bring out a new side of him and Willa needed someone to test her limits and bring her out of her shell. Everything about this story was incredible and I absolutely how all of the Redwood Rebels stories are intertwined. I am already counting down the days until I can get my greedy hands on Tommy Chambers story because his is going to be a real GAME CHANGER!
