Sometimes you don't mean to become another person. Sometimes the choice is made for you, and pretending is the only thing that keeps you going.
When Alexis Romera is taken and her kidnappers find her fake ID in her purse, she must become Sophia in order to keep her family safe. Revealing her real identity to the man she's sold to would be easy enough, but can she trust him? Hell-bent on avenging the murder of his uncle, Rebel doesn't seem all that interested in playing things safe. In fact nothing about the secretive, dark and brooding MC president seems safe at all.
What do you do when the man who raised you is murdered, and the only witness is kidnapped girl who's being sold as a sex slave? You buy her, of course. As president of the most powerful motorcycle club in America, Rebel isn't lacking in power. There are strings the man can pull, and entire criminal organisations and corporate businesses alike would fall to their knees.
However, along with such power comes intense interest. The DEA have their eye fixed solely on the MC...and they're just waiting for Rebel to trip up. Getting Sophia to testify is the only way to bring the Los Oscuros cartel down. The beautiful, dark-haired, dark-eyed woman is belligerent and uncooperative and unlikely to bend to his will, but Rebel has a few tricks up his sleeve to make her compliant - he'll charm her until she's bending over backwards to please him. Of course, falling for her might cause a few hiccups along the way....
Book one in the Dead Man's Ink Series. This audiobook contains strong ties with the Blood & Roses series.
Rebel is a contemporary romance story with occasional dark themes that some people might find confronting.

The voice actors were so / so. I mean after listening to the blood & roses series, this doesn't compare in performance. However the story is killer and I highly recommend you give it a go. Can't wait for the next installment.
"Story was ok but the actors were TERRIBLE"
The story was ok. It has a lot of potential to be the beginning of a good series but the author needs to go beyond the cliché and flesh the characters out beyond stereotypes.
The voice actors were terrible. I couldn't quite believe how hilariously bad the male voice actor was. He sounds like a lispy nerd who is pretending to be cool. I laughed out loud whenever he was trying to sound tough or serious. He has no range whatsoever. I really can't believe they hired him. The female voice actor did get better as the book went on. She came across stiff and monotonous at times. I was extremely disappointed with both of them.
"Could have been better"
It was not a waste, but there are definitely some issues with the wording, ridiculous and sometimes ahead of itself. Also the narrator must be changed.
This is my first book by Callie Hart.
It was as if the book was written by two (2) different people. Sorry but the male voice did not deliver. The voice was took weak, slow and with a lisp. Very unbelievable and it threw the entire character off for me. When Kelly spoke I liked that version of rebel better. She could have narrated the entire book as she did all the voices better.
Yes, with new narrator or only female narration. The plot is there but it needs to be told better getting to the good parts. Its as if they are trying to be the characters instead of actually being them.
I prefer when the opposite character describes the other as so not to say "I am a bad ass but I do not say this to be cocky" Ridiculous. Let the other character describe them and it would come across way better then the character telling you how great/bad/smart etc. they are. Having them do this with such a weak voice and a lisp made it so unbelievable.
didn't like the male voice at first because of heavy breathing but it went away after the 1st chapter. overall, amazing book, cant wait for the next one to be released!!!
"Narration Ruined This Story"
Not the Audible edition. Male narrator talks too fast, and in no way comes across as a hot, sexy biker. Download the sample and see for yourself. Kelly did a great job with the female voice. This rating shouldn't reflect poorly upon her efforts.
No for Walles but yes for Kelly.
disappointed that you HAVE to purchase another book to see what happens with Sophia and Rebel.
only one juicy scene. the voice of rebel was lacking in male grit and made it difficult to visualize him as the author intended.
story line was good and kept my interest.
I didn't like how it just stopped at the end. Most of the time they will let their readers know that you have to get the next book to see what happens. But over all a good story line.
"S.O.A. fans will love this series."
this is the closest series that I have found that is filling my S.O.A. withdrawal. I really enjoyed this series.
"Callie Hart never disappoints!"
I fell in love with Callie Hart's book when I read the Blood & Roses series. It was dark and edgy and completely enthralling. When I finished the series I immediately bought Rebel on my Kindle. Unfortunately, it got lost in the pile of unread books on my Kindle. Until I discovered Audible and realized I could catch up on the books I didn't have time to read. I didn't find Rebel as dark as Blood & Roses, but that was ok. This story has a different feel, but it's still incredibly intriguing. I'm very much enjoying being able to unravel Sophie's story. The narration is great. Easy to listen to and expressive.
"This is a cliffhanger"
I really hate when we are not informed that a book is a cliffhanger, Especially when they do not let you know the title and when to expect the next book. I would have rated it a 5 if it wasn't for that
