A Love Song for Rebels by Piper Lawson
Release Date: May 27, 2020
Series: Rivals #2
Tyler didn’t set out to break my heart…
But life doesn’t give marks for good intentions.
Now, I’ll stop at nothing to achieve my dreams. I’m done playing by anyone else’s rules.
But when Tyler shows up in the last place I expect, with secrets and a confession…
There will be a reckoning.
Because the naive girl he shattered is gone.
And the woman in her place is ready for a fight.
A LOVE SONG FOR REBELS is Book 2 in the angsty new adult, academy-inspired Rivals trilogy and should be read following A LOVE SONG FOR LIARS (Rivals #1).
I understand why you left, but if you think for a second it didn’t tear me up, you were wrong.
When I read the first book in this trilogy, A Love Song for Liars, I truly thought that I hit the jackpot. Oh boy, was I wrong because the real gem is the second book: A Love Song for Rebels! Piper Lawson blew me away with the second book. I loved it so much!
Annie and Tyler’s romance started in high school in the first book, but now Annie is in college which means the romance shifts from Young Adult to New Adult and the transition is truly blossoming for their relationship. They are older, stronger and highly focused on their careers… but when they bump into each other unexpectedly, they realize their feelings have grown and their chemistry and deep connection can’t be ignored anymore.
There’s so much going on but I can’t share much. There are new amazing secondary characters (yes, Beck looking right at you!), steamy and heart breaking moments, a lot of angst, raw emotions, drama, off the charts chemistry and I couldn’t put my Kindle down for a second.
Tyler and Annie are amazing, reckless and selfless characters. I really loved how they wear their hearts on their sleeves and how they embrace their feelings for each other and for music. By the way, I’m still not a fan of Annie’s dad but that didn’t bother me in this book. The ending crushed me, I screamed and I cried and I can’t wait to read the final installment in this trilogy. I’m also equally dreading the final book because it’ll mean I’ll have to say goodbye to Tyler and Annie and I’m definitely not ready for that.
A Love Song for Rebels is a must read for anyone who loves an angsty, beautifully written college romance. Highly recommended.
