When Abigail Heyworth meets Eliot Cranbrook there is an instant connection and a feeling of comfort that comes with being around him. Abigail is like a wildfire, she burns and keeps on moving. Even though she feels like burning through Eliot during a fierce one-night stand, there is something that is pulling her deeper towards him. Eliot, despite being completely opposite from her in every way, is drawn closer to Abigail, wanting more than just the fling that is becoming inevitable. During their last evening together, Abigail tries to kiss him, but despite wanting her with every part of his being, he decides to keep her at arms' length until she can see him as more than just a one-time fling.
This is book four in 'The Unruly Royals' series, however I didn't even realize it until over halfway through the book when I stopped to look up the author. I love the fact that this is a series that you don't have to read every book to know what is happening. "R is for Rebel" is a standalone novel. Reading the others would enhance knowledge of some of the secondary characters, but it is not necessary as the author provides everything that you will need to know.
That being said, this is a funny, wonderful and steamy read. I loved Abigail, and I was completely smitten with Eliot. Their story is full of twists, turns and a very hot scene in a Paris hotel. This is a prime pick for a spring break book or to take with you to the beach. I have already added the author's previous 3 books to my list.
Abigail Heyworth is a rebel heiress, bucking the restrictions of her royal family every chance she gets. After ending a long-term relationship, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the sophisticated American, Eliot Cranbrook. Despite all their differences-he's a self-made businessman; she's a royal hippy-they fall hard for each other. When the intensity of their affair escalates and Abigail is forced to look at the nature of her rebellion, she has to decide if she has an entirely different kind of courage.
