Christie's Review: The Resistance by S.L. Scott


Title:The Resistance
Author: S.L. Scott
Release Date: April 28, 2014
Rating:4 stars
Cliffhanger: No

You don't choose when.
You don't choose where.

And you don't get to choose who you fall in love with.

The minute he opened his sexy mouth, Holliday Hughes should have known Jack Dalton was trouble. His smooth pickup lines, broad shoulders, and ridiculously handsome face charmed her right out of her clothes. She gave into her desires, the instant attraction blinding her to the obvious.

One night. That was all it took for Holliday’s world to be flipped on its axis. Jack Dalton was cocky. Smug. Volatile. Demanding. He ignited something deep inside her like no other, but there was something more to this brooding bad boy. There was a dark side to him she couldn't help but be drawn to.

Torn between what she knew about him and a mysterious side he tried to hide, could she walk away or was he simply too hard to resist?

Las Vegas.
One weekend.
An angel.
A demon.

Holliday, an internet entrepreneur and Dalton, a mysterious man with bad boy written all over him. Their paths collide in Vegas on weekend and their worlds are about to completely change. When their eyes connect across a room they're immediately drawn to each other. There's a darkness in his eyes that tell her she should stay far away but she just can't seem to do it. They have a natural ease with one another right from the start. Their sense of humor, their strange emotional connection, is pulling them closer but it can only ever be this one, passion filled weekend. Can they just give each other what the other needs? Just for now?

We're a couple of people in lust where he can be my demon and I'll be his angel for the night.

They tell themselves that it can't ever come of anything. But there's this undeniable feeling that neither of them can ignore. He's in a place in his life where he feels pretty lost and cynical but this blonde haired vixen could be the angel to pull him back into the light. She's bold, she's honest, and she's like no one he's ever met in his life. She's real.

"I told everyone I would be a hero one day."
"You still can be."
"How? Do you know someone who needs saving?"
His gaze penetrates deep. "Yeah, I might know someone."

I really liked these two together. He's a rockstar on the road and she's an independent, self-reliant woman who has her life and her growing business planned out. They don't seem to have much of a possibility of making this long lasting, but after the emotions that are stirred up that weekend, they don't really have much of a choice. What they've found together isn't easy to find, and they're not ready to admit defeat. The craving and the hunger that they have for each other is so real you can feel it. I absolutely devoured every hot scene in this book.

After they get back to their real lives, they stay connected and they have to work hard to keep going strong. His band is in self-destruct mode, it's rife with women, parties, drugs, and alcohol and he's fast losing his patience with his old way of life. I have to give it to him, with all the temptations thrown at him daily, he never betrays her-he travels across continents even if it's just for the chance to see her for one or two days. He's committed and hooked on her like an addict. And whenever they reconnect, they pick up right where they left off.

They're crazy about each other, but will they be able to make it through everything thrown at them?

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't anything completely unique-I've definitely read the Badboy Rocker theme many times but it was well written, the heroine didn't get on my nerves, and I really felt all the emotions and passion. Dalton made some idiotic, jealous moves from time to time, but I gave him a little room for error considering his lack of experience in relationships. He was so used to everything being handed to him and not having to work for anything, that considering, I felt he didn't do too bad. By the end of the book, they completely get their acts together and they're committed-hearts, minds, and bodies. This was my first read by S.L. Scott and it won't be my last.
