New Review: The Rebel by Kelsey Clayton (Haven Grace Prep Book 3)

🔥🔥 HOT NEW REVIEW 🔥🔥

The Rebel by Kelsey Clayton is LIVE and FREE with Kindle Unlimited! A hot student-teacher romance with all the feels… Get ready to meet Tessa Callahan!

I don’t play by the rules.

Never have, never will.

The second our eyes met from across the club,

I could feel a shift in the air—an overwhelming pull drawing me in.

One mind-blowing night is all it was, or so I thought.

Repeating my senior year may not have been the plan,

But finding out my one-night stand is my new teacher—

That’s something I never saw coming.

His gaze bores into me with the same intensity.

That body, those hands, I remember every touch.

I should stay away, but I don’t want to.

This time, all bets are off.

I’ll let him think he’s in control,

Until I bring him to his knees.

Passion and fire,

Forbidden and wrong.

Like I said, I don’t play by the rules.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Just when I think Kelsey Clayton can’t surprise me, she ALWAYS does. The Rebel is my favorite book in the series so far. 

I knew Tessa would have a story to tell, but I had absolutely no idea how powerful it would be. In the earlier novels, I learned that she was pretty tough and independent. However, I didn’t realize how complex and complicated she was. 

She doesn’t believe that the rules are for her. She is the rebel.  When she sees a sexy stranger, Asher, across a club that she is too young to get into, she thinks nothing of going home with him. It is a night they will both remember, even if they believe they won’t see each other again. Oh boy, how wrong they are. 

Imagine their surprise when they realize he is her teacher, and she is his student. Before people freak out, she is 18. If this was any other person but Tessa, it wouldn’t work…but it does. Of course, she sees no problem. Asher, unlike Tessa, is a rule follower. He has done that all of his life, but all that goes out of the window with her. She is chaos…

“This girl is a storm–a tornado ready to wreak havoc on anything in her path–and I’m addicted to her chaos.” ~Asher~

She is a storm. She has the potential to destroy everything in her path, but it is what she has had to do to survive. She might have a beautiful home, but that is just an appearance. Deep down, this girl is like a wounded animal. She has a tendency to lash out at others. She doesn’t think she can let anyone get too close to her, not even Delaney and Lennon. They can only get so far! She does this to keep herself from breaking into pieces she may never be able to put back together again. She really wants a relationship with Asher. He has proven himself to her time and time again. Yet, she has such a hard time relinquishing any control and putting her heart and sanity on the line.

Asher is a knight in shining armor if there ever was one! He does try to do the honorable thing and stay away from her, but he can’t. He is there every single time to rescue Tessa from her poor choices. He has his own issues of trust, but he is willing to put everything on the line for her. Who wouldn’t fall in love with a guy like that?

Despite Ashser’s support, Tessa has to make the decision to help herself. Asher takes the pain away momentarily, but it doesn’t last. 

“He’s the antidote to my pain. When I’m with him, everything fades away, but when I’m not, I drown in misery.” 

She has the power to determine what path in life she wants to take, but it won’t be easy. Lucky for her, she has an unbelievable support system. 

I was glad I got to see characters from previous books drop in and make appearances. They do play a part in Tessa’s journey. The addition of Colby, Asher’s best friend, also adds to her story. I loved Colby, and I hope at some point we get his story. 

Clayton gave her readers a book that isn’t just a story, it has the power to give someone hope and the ability to change lives. We learn through Tessa that pain doesn’ have to define you. You can overcome pretty much anything if you try. As she so eloquently puts it, “You are bigger than the things that happen to you.” It was just an incredible story of love and resilience. Another winner for Kelsey Clayton!!!!
