**RELEASE BOOST** The Rebellion by S.L. Scott


















Title: The Rebellion


Series: Hard to Resist #5


Author: S.L. Scott


Genre: STANDALONE Contemporary Romance


Release Date: May 18, 2017











Blurb






I met my muse at fifteen. I’d just gotten busted

for smoking behind the school gymnasium. She inspired me with her laugh and

nonjudgmental attitude and, before I knew it, we were inseparable. Then I left

to pursue my rock star dreams—dreams she encouraged.





I got over Jaymes Grenier no problem. I never

think about that little bow at the top of her pink lips, or the way her green

eyes admired mine. Nope, I barely recall the way she fit so perfectly in my

arms when I held her at night. The sweet way she would whisper she loved me has

long faded from memory.





These are the lies I regularly tell myself

in hopes of believing them one day. Yeah, I was told I’d get over my first

love.





I didn’t. 





Derrick Masters marked me the moment we met back

in ninth grade. He called me over—all bravado and bad boy mystery wrapped in a

James Dean-esque package. Dark hair and blue eyes with a rebel without a cause

charisma. He was everything I was warned about, but I couldn’t resist. I

was his from that moment on.





His career took off almost as soon as he

did. I knew it would. I just thought I would be beside him as his partner in

crime, best friend, and lover. That’s what we had always been … before he left

me behind to fend for myself.





Fend? Fight is more like it.





I’ve been fighting ever since. 





Fighting for survival.





Fighting for a better life in a world determined

to keep me down.





I don’t have the luxury of letting my head live

in the lure of La La Land. His dreams may have come true, but mine were

extinguished. These days I fight for something bigger than me, bigger than we

were ever meant to be.





When his dreams come crashing back into my

reality, is this a second chance at that fairy tale ending or another

heartbreak in the making?

When dark meets light, will all become Shadow?


The boy leaned closer. Coren risked another glance at his face, expecting to find the widened pupils, the swollen lips of desire and anticipation.
But it was worse than that.
He stared at her intently, gray-blue eyes narrowed and full lips slightly upturned in conquest.
Claim them with a kiss. The hunt’s opening speech echoed in her mind.
He pulled her closer, and she stopped moving entirely, going limp. Playing dead. He thought this was a game, like all the others did.
Then she allowed her lips turn up in a grim smile. It certainly was a game. The boy just didn’t realize that her rules were different, and he was about to lose.
Her tongue reached into the cavity of her cheek and retrieved the plump goshen berry hidden there. As his lips neared, Coren broke the berry against her teeth, bracing for the instant burn. Then, tongue searing, she shoved the pulp past his opened lips, preventing the claim.
He burst away, the shock of the acidic berry sending him stumbling backward, swiping drool from his slack jaw.
And she ran, darting around him and ignoring the pain and the blisters that were already bubbling and popping on her tongue and lips. Reaching the cliff, she hazarded a glance over her shoulder. He was tougher than expected, for he was crossing the plain too, moving quickly through the sandy grass.
“Stop!” he yelled hoarsely. Strangely, he was grinning widely, lips blackened with goshen juice and bright blood. Coren had no more ground left, but out of curiosity, she paused to watch as he approached. He walked softly now, as though she were a beast he was cornering. Perhaps he was a real hunter, after all.
Even so, the berries had stopped him, making the kiss forfeit. She could claim he hadn’t actually caught her.
“So…goshen berries?” he asked, wiping away more blood with the hem of his white shirt. “I must be the first hunter ever to receive that treatment.”
Coren’s brain nagged at her to escape, but something in his grin made her ask. “Why the first?”
“Because surely no one has ever caught you before. And I can’t imagine another girl willing to martyr her own lips just to avoid a small kiss.”
He was very close now: not quite near enough to grab her, but mere steps from it. She stepped back carefully, heels nearly hanging off the edge of the cliff.
“Nothing is small when it is against your will.” She watched his eyes widen as he processed the words, and then she bent her knees and pushed away from the earth, arcing back and out into the void, then straight as an arrow toward the water below. His shout was erased by the wind rushing past her ears, and then the water closed over her head with a crash.
Under the surface of the sun-warmed water, Coren somersaulted quickly and reversed directions. She surfaced only to locate the face of the cliff and gulp a breath, and she didn’t dare look up to see if he had spotted her. Ducking back under the waves, she stroked hard against the current, finally feeling rock. Her lungs throbbed as her head bobbed up again, but she was safely inside the hidden sanctuary.
