Review: Rebel Heart by LK Farlow

LK Farlow is a new-to-me author, but after having read her latest release, I certainly wouldn't say no to reading more from her in the future and even checking out her back list. With Rebel Heart, Farlow offers up a friends-to-enemies-to-lovers romance between Firecracker and Jockstrap, aka Abigail Jane Adams and Brock Larson. They were the closest of friends as children, but middle school found them drifting apart, and high school essentially ended their friendship. Their paths never crossed again after they went off to college...not until one of her professors insists that AJ tutor Brock or risk losing the letter of recommendation she really needs after graduation.

AJ vows to suffer through her forced time with Brock. She doesn't care to interact with him unless necessary. Underneath the pink hair, piercings, and tattoos she now dons, however, Brock still glimpses the Abby Jane he knew as a kid, before everything else got in the way. After all, this was the girl he decided he would marry when they were only five years old. But AJ's got some very preconceived notions about what kind of guy Brock is, and while some of it may be true, she's got a lot of it wrong. As these two get to know the adult versions of each other, will they realize that they were better off as enemies or could this be the beginning of something far more special?

You know what they say about the thin line between love and hate? Well, AJ and Brock basically muddled that line up, and it made for one heck of a fun read. I adored these two together, but even when they were on their own and just hanging out with their friends, they were wholly entertaining. There's a wee bit of angst that goes on in the book, especially with regards to the expectations placed upon Brock by his overbearing father, but it's mostly all about these main characters trying to not kill each other at the start to trying to not kiss one another later on. The one hiccup had to do with the changing of majors in your senior year and still graduating on time, but other than that, I really adored AJ and Brock's story and can't wait to read more from LK Farlow. 4.5 stars for Rebel Heart. ♥
