Summary

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?

Rock on S L Scott!

Suzie, I love this story! I love all your stories but this one, who can resist a rock star. ;-) Holiday is refreshing, independent, a successful business woman, sexy and strong, but alone until she meets her Outlaw. Dalton lives the life of a the Rock Star, Johnny Outlaw, but he longs for someone to love him just as he is. All sides. His 'me', his Dalton, his broken Texan injured baseball player who's dad didn't love him and who feels empty by the adoration and expectations of fame, but also to be proud on the Rock Star for his success. Luckily with this story what happens in Begad doesn't stay there. Or one might say there is nothing lucky about it, is just LOVE.
The narrator did a wonderful job in the audible version. I could hear both the snarky voice of Holly and the sexy fire in Dalton's. take a walk on the wild side as this relationship tries to find balance between the reality of Fame and the Normalcy in finding a home with the one you love through the ups and downs of life.

Wowza....

Would you consider the audio edition of The Resistance to be better than the print version?

That is the word that came out of me when I finished this story. Dalton, Johnny, Jack, Outlaw, or whatever name you want to call him is a human being first. Then fame happens, and he almost loses himself, but then he met Holliday, our heroine, and he bought himself a get out of hell card. Dalton shows how miserable the life of the rich and famous is. The path of their love is not smooth as it is supposed to be, but we can see how they work hard at it, and came out on top.

This story is kind of surreal for me. It has the same ambiance as rock star stories, but at the same time it is cleaner than most. Dalton did not once cheat on Holls, in fact, he is the one that has insecurities about her. He always was jealous of her friends, especially the male ones.

I love this story because of this rock star. He cuts a romantic figure. I am also so elated that this is a complete book, no cliffhanger and there is a HEA. I will be happy to read about how their life is 5, 10 years down the road later though. Sweet story. I will read books by this author again.

What other book might you compare The Resistance to and why?

Maybe 'Reckless' by SC Stephens.

Which character – as performed by Alexandria Watts – was your favorite?

Dalton of course.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes. Cry in some places. Don't want to say. No spoilers.

AN ACHINGLY BEAUTIFUL ROCKER ROMANCE

I really hope Audible gets more books by this author because she really knows how to write a beautiful haunting love story and this one's between Johnny Outlaw a drool-worthy famous Rocker and Holliday a successful independent businesswoman. But when they first meet she refreshingly doesn't recognize him so he goes by the name Jack Dalton to shed his fame and reputation. Their relationship is challenged by all that life can throw at it.... insecurities, distance, fame, drugs, temptations, misunderstandings, jealously, demons from the past and a tragic death but their connection, ever growing bond and the deep enduring need for each other comes across so strongly.

Their chance meeting, instant connection and intense one night stand captured me but what kept me enthralled was the passion, strength and commitment that they had for each other which was so moving because you really feel these two loveable characters deserve to be together and get their HEA. There's raw need, fun and laughter, joy and tears, lots of heartfelt sex, touching and romantic words, heartache and drama and there's also growth, understanding and support. Then, at the end of their journey, stands two strong and loving people who've been through emotional Hell but their beautiful destination was so worth the ride.

Mainly told from Holli's POV and the narrator was the cherry on top of an already stuffed cake because she breathed life into each and every chapter.

Worth a credit? This is a book that leaves it's mark as I'll be in a 'book hangover' funk all day and in no hurry to start another book because I want to savor and relive this one a bit more..... so YES, a very very creditworthy romance.

Not Your Average Rocker Romance

Any additional comments?

This was a sweet rocker romance with likeable characters and an entertaining story. The angst and drama were relatively minor and there was no over-glamorization of the rocker lifestyle. These were two somewhat normal people trying to carry-on a somewhat normal relationship, despite Jack's crazy career expectations. I really enjoyed that these were characters that I could relate to and I look forward to more from this author. This was my first book from S.L. Scott.

2.5 The Story Didn't Quiet Gel For Me

On a business trip to Vegas, Holli meets rock star Jack Dalton (aka Johnny Outlaw). When a night of passion turns into more than a one night stand, they have to find a way to make a relationship work despite the odds stacked against them.

I really wanted to like this book. It had all the makings of a good story but there just some ingredients missing. In Vegas, Holli and Dalton just didn't click as much for me as the author wanted. They had a lot of (very poorly written) sex but the snappy dialogue wasn't really all that snappy. Most of what they said throughout the book read more like inspirational poster quotes than real life conversation. And the quotations at the top of every scene were the same--unoriginal and awkwardly written.

Also, I found it hard to believe that, toward the end of the story, Dalton could recover from a devastating blow after all the craziness, simply by spending a week in Hawaii, getting drunk. It seemed unlikely. Now, if he was getting drunk in Hawaii with a psychiatrist, THAT I might believe.

Their relationship was seriously volatile and Holli was so waffley--does she want to be with him? Or not? I also felt that socializing with Danny was a stupid thing to do. Not because Dalton would be jealous, but because she knew Danny was into her and all of these encounters were just leading him on. It was uncool IMO.

I did like that they tied up all the loose ends at the end of the book. Although the scenes with Dalton's Dad really rang false. His reasons for being so dismissive and rude to Dalton just didn't hold up--there just wasn't enough real backstory there to make his hollow words seem true. And then, for no reason, all is well at the end?? Really?

There was alternating POV between the two characters but it only happened a few times. Mostly the book was told from Holli's POV. So when they switched to Dalton, it felt forced. By the end of the book, we're supposed to believe that he loved her from the moment he saw her and it's shown by the way he remembers to buy her favorite soda. IMO there should have been WAY more moments, both bigger and smaller than this one, illustrating his feelings for her. Just wanting to punch people who spend time with your "girl", doesn't mean you're in love. And for Danny to have whitewashed Dalton's violence, even slightly--like wanting to hurt men who spend time with your girlfriend is a valid expression of your feelings--really annoyed me. This is why so many women stay with violent men. We shouldn't be championing this behavior. It should be considered wrong. Period.

In any case, there was potential for this book to be much better but it never reached it IMO.

Alexandria Watts was just OK with the delivery of the story.

True Love Finds a Way

Flirty and fun, I love getting to know Holliday and Dalton. They have a strong connection from the start, and as good of a time I had, there is a heaviness waiting in the wings. I admire the strength and talent Hollie has, and Dalton sure know how to bring a brooding hotness. I couldn't have prepared for how quickly I'd become emotionally invested, but I won't give spoilers. We get to know is this couple, but it's beautiful how we get to know the bandmates as well. I also give a big hug to Danny. There are some things we may never understand, but I hope we revisit in further books. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and pacing, but the voice talent is excellent as well. Highly recommend for sure. This is a voluntary review of a copy gifted by the author.

Sadly boring

The book is insanely slow moving and doesn't have much excitement outside of the sex scenes. There's no plot and is mostly just about sex. There's also a lack of character development. You don't get much out of their background.. for 2 people dating and wanting to get to know each other, they barely skimmed the surface. Holli has zero personality and just seems to go with the flow with everything, staying by Dalton's side, hardly showing emotion through most of the book, with her thoughts only and always filled about Dalton and how much she misses him.

Alexandria is a pretty good narrator. Not much voice acting, but her voice is great and is nice to listen to if the book wasn't on the boring side.

OH my Dalton and amazing audio

OH my HOT rocker... Jack Dalton maybe a famous rock-star, but he is also the simplest man. He just wants someone to be part of his life for "him", not for his rock-star status of Johnny Outlaw. Holliday Hughes is a beautiful person inside and out, she is now ready to have some fun in her life.

Dalton makes Holli feel things she hasn't felt before. Holli is so strong and knows what she wants in her life, but is so confused at what she feels for this man that can be a rocker in one breathe and her Dalton the next.

I loved this connection they shared and the growth each of them as the story progresses. The Audio was truly amazing and you can feel the passion for each character.
