Rebel Heart by L.K. Farlow

39719867.jpg

She wants to see him get wild and he thinks she needs Jesus.

When AJ Adams is coerced into tutoring Brock Larson, she can’t help but wonder what she’s done to deserve such an epic punishment. He’s the very definition of an All-American good boy—and a total kiss ass. He’s the perfect son, the perfect student, and according to rumor, by far the best golfer the university has ever seen. Puh-lease. If he’s so perfect, why does he need tutoring?

With his British Literature grade circling the drain, Brock knows he needs help. But when he meets his tutor, he can’t believe his friggin’ luck. Abby Jane no longer resembles the childhood best friend he used to play hide and seek with. No, she’s all attitude and pink hair and tattoos. Oh, and she hates him, so that’s a plus.

Brock and AJ couldn’t clash more and antagonizing one another is just too easy. But, as they spend more time together, the lines begin to blur, leading them to realize they have more in common than what meets the eye.

Hate. Lust. Love. They all look the same when you’re in denial, and everyone knows you can’t control your rebel heart.

This was my first Farlow read and I can't say I was disappointed in the slightest.

It was a new spin on the opposites attract and when I read about the jock getting tutored, my mind automatically thought football jock.  Yess... it was an uptight golfer instead!  I could definitely picture four popped polo collars while reading about Brock.  AJ is a fiery salty spitball heroine and your mind may fight her pink hair and tattoos with Brock's pink polos and golfclubs...  but it works.  It just does.

While Brock had a shit ton going on and the author easily could have dug into the characters deeper, it was refreshing to know there were issues there but the focus was entertaining the reader with these two opposites just simply fighting and falling in love.  Sounds basic, but it's not.  

This book struck me at the right time in the right way.  I loved the tone.  I loved the characters.  I loved that I forgot Brock is everything I don't normally dig.  And I loved Farlow's amazing style of writing.  This is a definite quick and entertaining read.
