Book Review: Rebel Roused

Rebel Roused (Untamed #5) by Victoria Green and Jinsey Reese: With a ring in his pocket, and the future on his mind, Dare Wilde comes home to discover that his worst nightmare has come true. Ree’s been taken, his best friend shot, and his father is still on the loose.

He thought he'd won. He thought everyone he cared about most in the world was finally safe. But his life has never been that easy.

Now it's a race against time—and his monstrous father—to save the ones he loves most. Can he help Rex and rescue Ree? Will he even survive another encounter with his father?

Ree and Dare's story comes to a close in this final book of their epic saga. But will the end be a happily ever after or an epic tragedy?

*This is the final episode in a 5-episode new adult series and is about 160 pages long. Each book in the series is like an episode of your favorite television drama, telling a full piece of a much larger story. Due to mature subject matter (sexual situations and strong language) this book may not be suitable for all readers.

TeriLyn's thoughts: **Rebel Roused generously provided by the authors in exchange for an honest review.**

Following the development of two people both separately and individually as they navigate the darkness inside of them to come together and really be together in love, in life – it’s one of the greatest joys a romance reader holds dear. Victoria Green and Jinsey Reese accomplished this feat, times one hundred, with the Untamed Series. A series exemplifying what it takes for a story to manifest itself in the hearts of those who embark on the adventure.

All the elements seen throughout the entire series – love, angst, drama, heartache, comedy, passion – presented themselves in Rebel Roused. The dramatic and satisfying ending provided readers answers to our most burning questions as well as further development of the these two main characters we’ve grown to love AND bottom line – I adore these characters!

Rebel Roused picks up where Wilde at Heart leaves off giving us no shortage of excitement and as per usual no stopping the authors from giving us heart-pounding moments of anxiety and worry. Told from both the points of view of Dare and Ree our insight into the feelings of these characters leaves nothing out. While I refuse to give anything away regarding plot, I will say that these two characters have become very special. In my review of the prior books in the series you’ll see my gushing over these two characters. However I feel it pertinent to say Dare and Ree two characters for which I know belong together and whose development and discovery of them has been most fulfilling to read. Separately, Dare and Ree were drowning. Their need for each other coupled with the fact they need someone to share their joy and strife with makes the story all the more purposeful.

One major and impactful difference between Rebel Roused and the other episodes is the constant, unfiltered intimacy between Dare and Ree, an intimacy we get to read about for almost the entire length of the story. Secondary characters in this series are vital to the story as they enhance the elements I’ve come to expect from the plots. It was a nice change to end on the realization of how far these two characters have come by showcasing the lives they intend lead together. To see the focus of the books really highlighting the completion of Dare and Ree’s circle.

These two authors have exposed the raw parts inside these characters, exploited their fears, and made them whole because of it. They humanized them to the point we believe in them so much our hearts hurt when theirs do and we feel the joy when the live it. They’ve done this brilliantly within each book throughout the series making it one the best New Adult serial series I’ve read. These characters have stuck with me and become very special. With each episode giving us more and more including this final installment, we get everything we want as readers. There’s no cliffhanger yet we still want more because we’ve infiltrated their lives and became attached. Thankfully we’ll get more from the point of view of another Wilde brother.

I’m thankful to have found these authors and their addictive series. It’s one I’ll read again for certain and hope very much you’ll pick up and read this series too.

MANY THANKS given to this incredibly kind and funny writing team of Victoria Green and Jinsey Reese for including me in “The Wilde Things” and affording me the opportunity to be a part of Dare and Ree’s unforgettable journey.
