The Resistance Blog Tour



REVIEW
I'm in love!!!!! This book was AWESOME! Ugh, I'm on a high right now. I can't even begin to explain my love for this book. Everyone just needs to read it, NOW


Holliday is a successful woman owning a million-dollar company. She's had sucky relationships all her life and doesn't know what to do, until Dalton weaves himself into her life. Jack Dalton, aka Johnny Outlaw, is a rockstar, but he's much more than that. He's a human trying to deal with his inner demons. 

Holliday and Dalton meet in Las Vegas, and one encounter with each other left them wanting more. They are inseparable from that moment on, they try to fit into each other lives and somehow make it work, but not without a few bumps in the road. 

Dalton is so freaking lovable! He is caring, and funny, and attentive, and amazing. He struggles with the attention that he is given for being in a band but manages to stay true to himself. 

Holliday is so understanding and completely accepting of Dalton, which is something he needed in his life. She sees the real him, not the rockstar that hits the stages. Her smart mouth is something I also LOVED about her.

Dalton and Holliday can heat up any place. They are inseparable. I'm not even sure how many times the slept with each other. These two individuals were successful before each other, but together they were happy, and completely satisfied with life. 

I could not put this book down because it was FANTASTIC. The only problem I dealt with was that sometimes I felt that the scenes were too rushed, more details would have been nice! Nevertheless, I loved this book and absolutely recumbent it. If your looking for a book about rockstar then this book is for you! 

EXCERPT  

“Wait.” He reaches to the nightstand one more time and grabs his phone. Scrolling, he smiles when he finds what he’s looking for. With one push of the button, a song I’m all too familiar with begins. I know every word and every riff. “Stairway to Heaven” was the soundtrack to a lot of trouble I got into back in high school. “Led  Zeppelin?”
With a smirk in place, he nods. “This is great fucking music.”
“Great fucking music or great music for fucking?” I ask as his hands squeeze my breasts.
“Both.” He lays back, his hands sliding up the outside of my thighs, and says, “Take me to that place that keeps you from getting jaded. That place where you find peace without the demons destroying everything you thought you wanted. Take me there.”
Darkness fills his eyes, his gaze alluding to everything he doesn’t have to be any longer. I lift up and sink down on him, my hands pressed flat against his chest, wanting to smother the dark and cover it with light. Slowly rocking back and forth like the tempo calls for, his words lyrics to my ears, invading my thoughts. I drop my head back as his hands grab my hips, holding me down. The resistance causes inner turmoil as my insides begin to coil. Wanting more, my hands fall behind onto his legs, balancing me on top of him as we move against the other.
I let my mind drift with the melody, the fullness of him overtaking all other feelings. The music builds and my body reacts to the rhythm he’s creating inside me. The song becomes our anthem, a soundtrack to our moans and heavy breaths.
When I look down at him, his eyes are open, watching me, one hand roaming my body freely. The other caressing my tattooed skin.
The song speaks of winding roads, shadows and souls… I’m flipped onto the mattress. Dalton’s inside me again, moving over me. Our bodies become slick with sweat, emotions begin swirling between us. Feelings that this could be more than just one night plant themselves like seeds in the depths of my mind.
