Summary

Hazel Ross had no idea what she’d stepped into that night at my 18th birthday party. I’d waited years for the right moment, and there she was, forcing me to show my cards before it was time. Now she wasn’t only a pawn for our enemies, she had a target on her back. 

I don’t regret it, even though I should. I could never regret making Hazel mine again. She gave me something real to fight for. It was too late for her to back out now. She was one of us again. And she was about to find out what that meant.

I love Ali Dean!!!

Wow. This book was amazing. I loved it so much. Ali Dean did a fantastic job with the story and the characters. Sarah Puckett (of course, she's a rock star) did an amazing job bringing the characters to life and played off Gregory Salinas really well. I had so much listening to it. 🎧🎧AudioBookObsessionReviewer🎧🎧

Cruz and Hazel

Cruz and his crew have been gathering proof against the Malone’s and things are heating up. It’s scary the Malones keep trying to get to Hazel and I love she gets some retribution in this book. More angst in this book and we get Cruz’s point of view. Loved Gregory Salinas as Cruz it adds to the experience of this audiobook. Sarah is amazing too! This one ends in quite the cliffhanger so I gotta get onto the next book. Audiobook Obsession Reviewer 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧

Angsty and Wonderful

Hazel and Cruz seem to have gotten themselves in over their heads.. Or have they? The crew has a plan, timing isn't on their side right now, they aren't ready to bring the plan to fruition yet but since Hazel showed up at Cruz's 18th birthday and forced the timeline of events they will have to move forward ready or not. The questions are starting to get answered and whoa there are so many players in the game, so much that Hazel had no idea of. It's amazing the secrets people can keep even when they are so close to you. It's also amazing how much learning the truth can completely change your life. I love the angst in this book and the suspense. I couldn't walk away I had to know what happened next. I love the fact that you get Cruz's POV during this book. I craved it in book 1 so having it during this book made me so excited. Gregory Salinas is one of my favorite male narrators and he did not disappoint. Sarah Puckett is making her way up the list of favorite female narrators as well, she does so good with the emotions and exclamations!

Second in trilogy, must listen in order

I usually start my audiobook reviews by sharing my thoughts on the story itself, but having two really fabulous narrators is probably why I liked the story so much so I'm changing it up this time. Sarah Puckett and Gregory Salinas did an excellent job bringing the characters to life with their performances, and I highly recommend listening to the audio version of Defiance Falls Revolution. The story was really engaging. A little vigilante-ish, but still good. I appreciated that this book ended in a place that left me wanting more, but not right in the middle of the action (*cough* book one *cough*). I'm anxiously awaiting the audiobook release of Defiance Falls War. #AudiobookObsession

Action packed and the suspense is rising!

So glad to have picked up book 2 of this series, as it left me wanting more after the Defiance Falls! I need to know what is going to happen. This book is very enlightening, giving us a lot of back story into the feud between the Donahues and Malones. I don't think Hazel had any idea what she was getting into when she and Cruz got back together, but this story has a little bit of everything. The weaving of the families is intricate and the story intriguing. Being a huge fan of romantic suspense, I am enjoying Ali Dean's journey into the mafia, and how she includes not only technology to make things current, but also adds in the devastation of dementia with family members. It gives the story a feeling of relevance and adds depth to the characters. I can't wait to see how it all plays out. Sarah Puckett and Gregory Salinas dually narrate this installment of the series. Puckett continues her wonderful portrayal of Hazel. She gives her a maturity in her voice, yet keeps her a little naive, perfect for this role. Salinas is Cruz, and he brings him to life, giving him the young man sound with a wisdom far beyond his years. I enjoyed this team and look forward to the conclusion.

Defiance Falls Revolution

This is the second book in the Defiance Falls trilogy, and it was just as good as the first. There is the right amount of danger, suspense, and romance mixed in with secrets and lies. I love that we get Cruz's point of view in this book along with Hazel's. There is a dramatic cliffhanger at the end of this book. It's been an exciting ride, and I can't wait to see how it all ends in Defiance Falls War. Sarah Puckett and Gregory Salinas both did a great job bringing this story to life. 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer

I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Title: Defiance Falls: Revolution Author: Ali Dean Format: Audio Narrator: Gregory Salinas, Sarah Puckett Genre: Romantic suspense, YA, NA, mafia, sports (soccer) Standalone: no, read book one first, ends on a cliffhanger but not too bad / a great point to stop and lead into the final book of this trilogy Part of a Series: book two of Defiance Falls POV: Cruz and Hazel Steam Level: some but not very graphic, also some dark sexual elements 4.5/5 Defiance Falls: Revolution was just as action-packed as the first book, if not Morse so. I loved having the addition of Cruz’s POV along with Hazel’s. I also loved Hazel’s retribution for what happened to her in book one, set off by events in this book. She’s truly a warrior and I love how the guys are both protective but also knew when to let her do her thing. Revolution ends right as the ball is set into motion for War. Defiance Falls is another great series by Ali Dean and I loved some of the darker elements/suspense. I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Some secrets revealed...can't wait for more!

Defiance Falls Revolution starts where Defiance Falls ends, which was on a whopper of a cliffhanger, and it is a pretty action and drama packed book in my opinion from start to finish. There is basically a rivalry between two sets of people/families and Hazel is put in the middle and her safety is jeopardized repeatedly. I love Cruz's protectiveness of Hazel, though at times it is a bit over the top. I love the mystery and suspense aspect of the book and there is a lot of manipulation and plotting that made the book interesting and kept me invested. I really enjoyed Cruz and Hazel together and enjoyed getting more information about their past and more questions answered about what lead to the rivalry going all between all of the characters. I am really enjoying this series and cannot wait to dive in to the final book in the series! Sarah Puckett continued to be amazing in the narration of the second book of this series. I enjoyed the addition of Gregory Salinas as a dual narrator, who narrated Cruz's POV. I think he did a great job. I don't think I have listened to his work before but found him pleasant to listen to and would definitely be interested in listening to more of his work. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Loved it!

Great story! This is the second book in the series. I liked learning more about the characters and the dynamics of their relationships. Cruz is an amazing character and he just gets more and more interesting. The narrator's do a great job telling the story. I recommend it. #audiobookobsessionreviewer

Great book/series 💜

This is book 2 in a Trilogy series. I enjoyed this storyline very much. I was fascinated by the ages of most of the characters. Real life drama mixed in with a little mafia style angst and the perfect amount of romance. The narration was amazing. I recommend this book/series. #audiobookobsession Sisters Spotlight 💜

suspenseful

The Donahues and Malones have been rivals for a long time. Now is the time to reveal the secrets to Hazel. She was confused, angry, and felt dejected. Why didnt they trust her? but now she joined them, to help her father reveal the truth. Hazel found her confidence and gets her revenge in this continuing story of mystery. Secrets are revealed, trusts broken. Now Hazel, her father, Cruz and the guys, are ready to fight the Malones. They have the upper hand for now, but how will the Malone's retaliate? Whatever comes next, are they ready for a war that they don't know how it's going to end ? Ali Dean's story gets better with each book. I can't wait to see how this ends! Sarah Puckett and Gregory Salinas both are phenomenal narrators that captured every emotion, voice of each person in the story and bringing it to life! Their narration flows from one character to another with ease. They both bring the angst, raw emotion and personality to each character. I enjoyed listening to this story. 🎧audiobookobsessionreviewer🎧

I love the duel narration for this one!!!!

It's been the Donohuges vs the Malones for so long in the town. Now Hazel has learned the truth about her father, Cruz & the boys and what is really going on in Defiance Falls. Hazel takes charge of her life in this book and really grows as a strong, confident woman. Hazel and Cruz's relationship heats up and we find out something very interesting about Cruz :). Some questions are answered , most are not. This set up for what I think will be an explosive third book. I love the duel narration in this book. Sarah and Gregory do an amazing job. Ali as always keeps me wanting more. I can't wait to see how this ends. #Audio Obsession Reviewer
