You don't choose when. 

You don't choose where. 

And you don't get to choose who you fall in love with. 

The minute he opened his sexy mouth, Holliday Hughes should have known Jack Dalton was trouble. His smooth pickup lines, broad shoulders, and ridiculously handsome face charmed her right out of her clothes. She gave into her desires, the instant attraction blinding her to the obvious. 

One night. That was all it took for Holliday’s world to be flipped on its axis. Jack Dalton was cocky. Smug. Volatile. Demanding. He ignited something deep inside her like no other, but there was something more to this brooding bad boy. There was a dark side to him she couldn't help but be drawn to. 

Torn between what she knew about him and a mysterious side he tried to hide, could she walk away or was he simply too hard to resist?

My review:

I got a sneak peek in Skip to the Good Part anthology, where a short teaser from The Resistance was published and I bought The Resistance right after that. The teaser was so promising, so I simply had to have the book! Boy, did I love it!

The Resistance is an intense, fun and well-written book! I loved the characters and the whole story-line and the dialogue in the book adorable!

Holliday Hughes is a successful woman who has invented an Internet meme which went viral. She is visiting Las Vegas for a meeting and after a boring event she is headed to a bar, where a gorgeous guy is asking her for her ID when she is buying a drink. There is an immediate attraction between them and Holliday decides to go for a one-night stand with the sexy stranger whom she thinks is a security guard in the hotel.

Next night in Vegas she finds out shocking truth about the guy she met. Jack Dalton is a lead singer of a world famous rock band The Resistance and he is better known as Johnny Outlaw. Jack Dalton stole a piece of Holli's heart, but she is not sure she can like Johnny Outlaw. And this is how their story starts.

What I loved about the book?

The characters were extraordinary well-written. I loved that Holliday was an independent and successful woman who put her foot down when needed. I liked that she didn't have insecurities and she wasn't heavily influenced by the fact, that her boyfriend was a rock star. She was down to earth and at the same time had a great sense of humor. She was there for Dalton when he needed her most, but then again, she knew what her limits were. I loved that!

I also loved Dalton. What wasn't there to love about him?! He wasn't only a good looking star, but also had his heart at the right place. I was very happy for him when he faced his demons.

I also loved Rochelle and Cory and my heart broke for Rochelle and I am so happy that the next book is about Rochelle.

The dialogue was funny and right out awesome! I giggled a lot. At the same time,the author also gave quite a lot of intensity and anxiety. The relationship between Dalton and Holli was hot, intense and very sexy!

I also loved the plot and the story development. It includes some serious surprises to me and I love that about a good story!

A great read!

5 stars!

Happy reading!
