If you’ve ever seen the movie Sky High and always thought that Layla should’ve ended up with “bad boy” Warren, then you don’t want to miss Lisa Brown Roberts‘ Resisting the Rebel. Were you a fan of her September 2015 novel, Playing the Player, then trust me when I say you will also not want to miss this swoony, contemporary YA romance. Seriously.
If you know me at all (or have read my book, Falling by Design) you know what a big fan I am of enemies-to-lovers trope. I’m also a big fan of pretend-to-feeling-real-feels trope. So, needless to say, this book was right up my alley.
It was cute and sweet and it hit the spot. Mandy was a fun character, with plenty of quirks. Caleb was a nice bad boy. Together, they made a cute pair. I had a few problems with a few areas, but overall, this was a quick read and I’m glad I have the chance to spread the word about it. Sometimes we just need those cutesy contemporaries to put a smile on our faces and this was one of those books!

About Resisting the Rebel:
Disclaimer: This book contains a villain pretending to be a hero, a hero pretending to be a villain, a disco-dancing heroine, two overprotective sidekicks, a little bit of bad language, and a whole lot of swoony kissing.
Spirit committee leader Mandy Pennington is secretly in love with her best friend, Gus, but when he hooks up with her archenemy at a party, she decides to win him over once and for all. She just doesn’t know how. But who better to help than hot loner Caleb Torrs?
Caleb’s got his own problems, but when he sees Mandy pining over Gus at a party, he thinks she’s finally smoked the spirit stick and lost her mind. Maybe he has, too, because he just asked Mandy to be his fake girlfriend.She’ll get her loser friend’s attention, and he’ll get his stalker ex off his back.It’s a win-win.
But soon one fake date blends into the next and before he knows it, he actually wants to kiss Mandy. For real. Too bad their plan is working, and Gus is finally noticing the one girl Caleb just might be falling for…
