Title: A Love Song for Rebels (Rivals #2) Author: Piper Lawson Genre: Contemporary Romance My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I told you last book–I told you!
I said to hold off calling Tyler a book boyfriend because he was still doing his certification courses, and this book is why. Welcome to A Love Song For Rebels, a place where Annie Jamieson and readers go to fall in love with a fully certified Book Boyfriend: Tyler Adams.
ALSFR is book two in a three-book series, so if you haven’t read book one, A Love Song for Liars, you shouldn’t be reading this review. Don’t pass go, don’t collect two-hundred dollars, do one-click book one, and start at the beginning.
One kiss and I forget that I’m supposed to hate her to my very core. This woman is beating up my heart and ruling my world.
Am I her bully… or is she mine?
(My Sweet Bully is a full length romance with all the delicious chemistry and tension that only a pair of 18 year olds in high school can bring. Drama, angst, and all the red-hot-love you trust me to write. xoxoxo)
Snow Frost is heir to the Winter Sector throne. Adopted daughter to the Queen of Mirrors, Vanessa, who is plotting against her and the kingdom, in a power move to end all power moves because bey-otches be bey-otches, yo!
This is my favorite X-Clan story so far. Ander Cain was a mean dope, IMO–he made me cry for an entire chapter. Elias is totally my WILF, and now Lexi C. Foss gave me another name to add to the WILF list in Sven Mickelson–who is getting his own book next in the series, Bariloche Sector. Swoon, I tell you. SWOON!
But Kazek Flor is my wolf, and he won’t be to everyone’s taste, but he’s tasty as all heckfire to me.
Winter’s Arrow is a retelling of Sleeping beauty omegaverse-style. Snow Frost is a Beta princess promised to the Alpha Enrique from the Bariloche Sector in an alliance mating devised by the Queen of Mirrors. Only Snow finds that there is something far sinister awaiting her on her wedding night. Feeling reckless, she gets a little mouthy with Alpha Kazek from the Norse Sector; instead of punishing her, he finds her tempting. And fate and Snow’s miscalculations land her at his feet when she attempts to escape. Only this is ain’t no fairytale.
Kazek is more smexy growl than bitter poisoned bite compared to Ander Cain, who was a bunch of emotional rocks (Sorry, Lexi C. Foss). Kaz’s brutal in many ways I can embrace, but Kaz lacks the prideful callousness that made me angry about a lot of what happened in Andorra Sector. I would say that Kaz is Ander done correctly (Sorry, Lexi C. Foss).
If I had to scour the book for a complaint, I would say that I wish the Snow’s/Winter’s Seven weren’t so similar. Overall they had little character development. They also had very little part in the story, and they were easy to confuse for one another other than Grum, who was part of the plot.
I loved Winter’s Arrow, and I can’t wait for Sven and Kari’s book!
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.

Ever walk into a conversation you’ve heard before but needed a reminder about the story to get caught up about the deets? The Secrets We Hide has perfect continuity; you should read The Lies We Tell right before it. I didn’t and had to go back and read the last two chapters of TLWT for the refresher.
Don’t be me.
Welcome back to the topsy-turvy underbelly world of Alstone, where money and power are the only real things of worth. The Four and Winter are still trying to uncover what happened to Winter’s father and the shady goings-on that lead Winter to the docks at the end of book one. Alstone Holdings does have a rat in the house. The saying goes, ‘where there is one; there are many.’ The Secrets We Hide has them coming out of the woodwork.
Schooled from the Travesty series is a favorite, so I’m a fan. I haven’t read outside the Travesty series, though, so I’m an ill-educated one. And this series, Rivals, is a spin-off from a previous one entitled Wicked–now you’re caught up.
There is nothing more fickle than a musician’s heart. They write love songs about everything from loving lovers to adoring jams and jellies, and at the end of the day, they have the flagrant disregard for tossing out hearts and empty jars without thought for the vessels. Annie knows this despite a rocker dad with a happily-ever-after. Musicians can’t be trusted, and the most untrustworthy is the owner of her heart and keeper of her secrets, ex-bestie and current-worstie, Tyler Adams. He tossed her aside, and she is determined to stay there.
But rockers and former besties, protectors, and kiss-stealers all have one thing in common: a wrap sheet for stringing Annie along and leaving her heartbroken.
