Review: Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Rebel Belle
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Narrated by: Amy Rubinate
Published On: 4/8/14
Audio Length: 9hrs 22min
Page Count: 345
Synopsis: (Found on Goodreads)

Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts.


Overall Rating: 4/5
Cover: 4/5
I audiobooked this but looking at the cover I think it fits the “Southern Belle” very well. Plus I like that book two “Miss Mayhem” matches it.

Characters: 4/5
Harper: 
Although she is a bit of a perfectionist she stands up in her beliefs (even if some are a little extreme). Most characters in the book focused more on her looks then how smart she actually is. She did annoy me at first but once it got down to doing business she was kickass.

David: 
He is definitely more stuck up than I expected him to be in the beginning but then once you learn more about him you understand why. He knows how to get under Harper`s skin and I love how well these two mesh together.

Plot: 3/5
In the beginning you sort of just want to slap Harper for being so concerned with Homecoming and being Miss Perfect. I felt like the first fight scene in the bathroom was a little extreme and the Paladin Idea didn’t flow as well as I was hoping it would. 

I did like how Cotillion was described and how that portion of the book played out. There were some rough parts of the book but I think in the end I would pick up and read Miss Mayhem just to hear what happens.

"Sometimes I want to punch Harper for being so perfect when she does things to Ryan and he just melts like nothing she does is wrong. Grrr"

"I'm on chapter 14 in the audiobook. Not sure what that translates too page wise. I'm still just not feeling Harper and Ryan. Looks aren't everything and when you don't truly enjoy kissing the boy you're dating then you shouldn't force yourself to stick with it."



TTFN,

Ashley
