Blog Tour + Review: Rebel North by JB Salsbury


Series: The North Brothers #2

The marks that slash across her neck and face turn people away. But I see the beauty that lies beneath, feel a kinship to her pain.

I regret the way she found me—mugged and left for dead. I should walk away, follow the rules, but I can’t. I want to see her again. There’s only one problem.

My brother convinced her I’m gay.

I use that lie to my advantage, persuade her to be my pretend girlfriend, to help protect my fake-sexual identity from my judgmental family. But what starts as a shameless excuse to be near her leads to crossed lines and midnight confessions.

I’m not who I led her to believe. I’m sin wrapped in silk. Betrayal masked by beauty.

And she’s not the only one with scars…

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

Wild North, the first book in the North Brothers series, was one of my favorite reads of the year. So I was really looking forward to Rebel North. When I first met Kingston I knew there was more to him. He is a party boy who jokes around and acts like nothing fazes him. However, he is putting up this façade to hide the things he is dealing with. Kingston is the black sheep of the North family, and I didn't think I could hate his father August more than I already did, but he definitely succeeded in this book. This book starts with Gabriella (Bee), who works at a hospice, finding Kingston knocked out drunk in the alley. This was a pretty unconventional first meeting, which I really enjoyed. Things progress and these two finds themselves becoming friends. Bee assumes Kingston is gay because of something his brother said. And this results in many funny moments. This also helps in Bee opening up and trusting him. However, she can't help but still be attracted to him.

Rebel North was more on the lighter side and definitely had its funny moments. The development in Bee and Kingston's friendship/relationship is very organic. I really loved seeing these two spend time together and getting to know each other better. There were a few emotional moments that broke my heart. Because both characters are dealing with trauma. I really enjoyed seeing them heal and helping each other. However, I also really appreciated that the author let the characters grow as individuals. They needed to overcome their past trauma and look to the future. Both characters were amazing and I loved their personalities a lot. JB really knows how to write great unique characters. I always fall in love and am able to fully connect to them. Rebel North was a great and fun contemporary romance and I already look forward to the next North brother's story. I really hope Hayes is next, even though he really needed to be slapped a couple of times in this book. I currently have a love hate relationship with him.

Read the first book in the North Brother series!
