Review: Rebel by Aubrey Ross

Enemy Embrace #1
by: Aubrey Ross
$5.95 ebook
Ellora's Cave
Sci-Fi Erotica
Released: January 2011

As a leader of the resistance, Corry has vowed to do what it takes to make the government see reason, including the kidnapping of the rulers' children.  Too bad one of the prisoners gives her nothing but trouble.  From the moment she lays eyes on Ashton, she knows she'll have her hands full.  If only she could have her hands full of something else...but no.  No matter how sexy and tempting he is, she must remember that he's nothing more than a prisoner of war.  And when the tides turn, she must pray that he shows her the leniency she refused to show him...

Corry's brother Korbin is determined to make the goverment see the sad plight of their people, and knows that kidnapping their children is the only way to make that happen.  He knows he can't let the prisoners see him, but he's drawn to Danette, a shy beauty who's meek demeanor begs him to dominate her, in every sense of the word.  She brings out a side of him that's long been buried, and makes him wonder if it's really her who has him enslaved...

This book is neat because it has two different stories with two different couples, yet both stories follow the same plot.  It starts out from Corry's point of view as they take the captives, and follows her and Ashton for a little over half the book.  Then it switches back to nearly the beginning of the story from Korbin's point of view, and uses his story to tie up any loose ends and blend the story together, plus it goes past where the first story left off and finishes the tale.  It was like having two books for the price of one.  Aubrey Ross did an amazing job keeping the two sets of characters unique and interesting, and I found myself dragged along for the ride.

Anyone who enjoys a good sci fi book about rebels and spies and really good sex scenes should give this book a try.

  1. Hi Carla,
    Thanks for reviewing REBEL. I'm glad you enjoyed both stories and I appreciate your comments. This entire series is one of my favorites. TOYMAKER (Book Two) just released at Ellora's Cave. I hope the readers (you're invited too) will check it out.
    Thanks, Aubrey
