Audiobook Review: Rebel (Wolfes of Manhattan, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rebel by Helen Hardt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Rock Wolfe was fourteen, he tried to kill his father.

Twenty years later, someone else finished the job.

Now Rock is returning to New York for the reading of the billionaire’s will. No way did Derek Wolfe leave anything to his oldest son, but according to Rock’s brother, his presence is required.

Estate attorney Lacey Ward isn’t looking forward to the reading. None of Derek Wolfe’s children will be happy, least of all his oldest. When Rock enters the conference room, Lacey is stunned. He’s a rebel – a biker all muscled and gorgeous in black leather. This won’t be easy, especially since she can’t stop staring at him.

Rock pays no attention to the reading. He’s lost in a fantasy of bending his father’s hot attorney over a desk. He’s not a commitment kind of guy, though, and she screams white picket fence. Sparks fly between them, but the murder lurks in the back of their minds.

Rock knows all his family’s secrets…or so he thinks. Mysteries seem to hide everywhere – mysteries that threaten not only his and Lacey’s future but their lives as well.


Fast and Furious!

The Hero: Rock Wolfe – he tried to kill his father when he was fourteen years old and was sent to a Military Academy for the troubled kids of Millionaires. He learned his lesson that his father wasn’t worth it, but still dreamed of his fathers death. Twenty years later his father was shot in the head at his penthouse and none of his kids were sorry. Rock lives in Montana but needs to go to New York for the reading of the will which specifies that all the kids had to be present.

The heroine: Lacey Ward – she was the Estate Attorney for Derek Wolfe. She wasn’t looking forward to the reading of the will since Derek Wolfe was worth billions and none of the family present would be happy about the contents. Rock was the last to show up and unlike the rest of the family, dressed in designer dresses and Armani suits, Rock strolled in wearing Levi’s, black leather boots and a biker jacket.

The Story: Rock is forced to stay in New York in order to fulfill the terms of his fathers will and secure his brothers and sisters inheritance. Though he wants Lacey and isn’t willing to let her get away, so he agrees to try as long as she agrees to help him. This book gets steamy very fast and there is a ton of chemistry between Rock and Lacey.

The book is told in dual points of view via dual narration. It was narrated by Troy Duran, my favorite narrator. He has a very deep and clear voice which is fantastic for any romantic Hero. Kendall Taylor did the narration from Lacey’s point of view, and I am not a big fan of her voice but it did fit well for the attorney.

The story is very steamy and I liked the romance. These two characters were total opposites and couldn’t keep their hands off each other. There was the mystery of who killed Derek Wolfe and quite a bit of suspense. It seemed like everyone in the Wolfe family was hiding something, including Rock and someone had it out for him.

The one thing I didn’t like about this book was the fact that not everything was resolved at the end. There wasn’t a cliffhanger, but by the end, we still don’t know who murdered Derek and why. Since each book in this series will be about one of the Wolfe siblings, who knows if or when we will get those answers.
