The characters are so well written they could walk right off the page! In this second book, Annie Campbell, who has always just wanted a safe, secure and predictable life with her small son in her home town of Tidal Falls has her world turned upside down. Emotionally she has to face the sudden return of the boy, now a man, she has always loved. She has to overcome the hurt he caused when he left and reveal an eight year old secret. Jared Martin left Tidal Falls to join the Navy and then the SEALs after high school and never looked back. The men on his team became his family, but when he returns stateside, he has trouble dealing with civilian life. He returns home when an old teammate needs him, but past trouble follows and threatens the girl he has always loved and her son, which he discovers is his. This book has two plots intertwined. A well written romantic suspense between Jared and Annie and the overall series thriller plot involving all the exSEALs. The plots flow seamlessly and move at a fast pace with many twists towards the climax. The romance in this book is happily resolved, but the overall thriller arc is left on a cliffhanger. This is a great addition to the series. The characters, good and bad, are all written as complex three dimensional people. I feel if I could visit Tidal Falls, I would find all of these characters walking around. You feel like these characters are friends and you know them all and their back stories and yet there is no overload or dump of information at any time in the flow of the story. I can’t wait to follow them all in to book three! Written for and posted first on The Romance Reviews.com.

    Annie and Jared crossed the lines of friendship as teens, when the sun rose the next day, he was gone, leaving Annie alone, broken-hearted and unknowingly pregnant. Eight years later, Annie is a secure, happy mother, a successful business woman and in her most secret heart of hearts, she is still in love with Jared, and now he has returned. No longer the young man on a mission to live life, he is a sadder and wiser man who has seen the good, the bad and the ugly of life and the one of those ugli Annie and Jared crossed the lines of friendship as teens, when the sun rose the next day, he was gone, leaving Annie alone, broken-hearted and unknowingly pregnant. Eight years later, Annie is a secure, happy mother, a successful business woman and in her most secret heart of hearts, she is still in love with Jared, and now he has returned. No longer the young man on a mission to live life, he is a sadder and wiser man who has seen the good, the bad and the ugly of life and the one of those uglies is after him with a vengeance and all targets are fair game. With imminent danger all around, has he the right to profess his love and ask for forgiveness or will his love make Annie and their son pawns to be bartered with? Meanwhile, an undercover agent is outed, alone and armed only with her wits as a human trafficking ring holds innocents captive, will her partner be able to save her? The Rebel’s Redemption by Jacquie Biggar is equal parts romantic entanglements, intrigue and suspense as we are taken to the quaint town of Tidal Falls, where evil shouldn’t be able to touch its citizens. Sharing POVs between characters opens up so much room for emotional connections with these players and rounds out this tale so well, it feels as if the events are happening, the town is real and the actions are not the machinations of a gifted author. Ms. Biggar has paced each scene and revealed each layer at practiced ease as love, hate and the need for redemption of the heart and soul make for a powerfully engaging read, no matter the season. If you are a fan of military romance, high intrigue and multiple layers of plot twists, you won’t find a dull moment between these pages. Not too dark, not too fluffy, a touch of hearts and flowers moments with a little grit to go around, The Rebel’s Redemption is a wonderful way to escape for a few hours. I received this copy from Jacquie Biggar in exchange for my honest review.

    Second chances and forgiveness are two main themes to the books I have read over the last few weeks. We all need forgiveness but what happens when the one person you love more than life itself walks out of your life and you hear nothing from them for eight years? Then one day, that person returns. This is exactly the premise of The Rebel’s Redemption. Annie loved Jared and thought they would be together forever. He ran off to join the Navy Seals and Annie was left wondering what happened. Eight y Second chances and forgiveness are two main themes to the books I have read over the last few weeks. We all need forgiveness but what happens when the one person you love more than life itself walks out of your life and you hear nothing from them for eight years? Then one day, that person returns. This is exactly the premise of The Rebel’s Redemption. Annie loved Jared and thought they would be together forever. He ran off to join the Navy Seals and Annie was left wondering what happened. Eight years later, he returns and she has to come to grips with her aching heart. Jared is a tortured soul, mired with regret, and the last thing he needed was to reignite his relationship with Annie. But circumstances have changed and he must come to grips with the cold hard truth. An enemy of Jared’s come to town, seeking revenge and all hell breaks loose. Suddenly, Annie and Jared must work together to defeat this dangerous enemy. Can they do it before it’s too late? I’m a sucker for romantic suspense and this book doesn’t disappoint. In fact, it’s one of the best romantic suspense novels I have read in a long time. The author grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go until the final page. The action is pulse-pounding and I read it in one sitting. The relationship between Annie and Jared wasn’t choppy, like I have seen in other books. Sure, there is betrayal and hurt feelings but the author created such energy between Annie and Jared that it flowed really well. What sealed the deal for me on giving it a five star rating was the complexity of the characters. Each character had its own back-story and they felt so real to me. I caught myself nodding along whenever the dialogue made logical sense. I was completely absorbed in the story and that’s rare for me as a reader these days. This is book two in a series but it also reads as a stand-alone. I, myself, am going to read book one and wait patiently as the author writes book three. If you love a good story and want to be taken away on a suspenseful journey, pick up this book immediately! Favorite Character: Ugh, do I have to pick just one? There are so many that I love! Okay okay, if I had to pick just one I’d pick Annie. Annie is one strong woman and in the end she follows her heart to save those she loves. I love her insecurities and how real she is. She and I would be best friends for sure. Favorite Line: Too many to mention.

I loved feeling like I was Annie and the attraction I felt for Jared when he entered the picture...well, let's just say that I have a thing for SEALS! Jared's character was awesome. I loved him from the start. Coming home from the war, only to find out about a life changing situation, and having to deal with a rising issue in the small town, really made him a sexy character in my eyes! Every page turn drew me closer and closer to Jared. Over all, Ms. Biggar created a story that I would go back and read again. I am hoping to go back and read Tidal Falls soon as I wasn't quite ready to leave the town just yet. This book is a story filled with hope of second chances, laughter, twists, turns and romance. Well done and hats and off to Ms. Biggar for an enjoyable read!

    Josie's Review This is my first time reading a book by this author and I’m so glad I decided to give this one a try. I love books that deal with second chance loves, a secret child and of course anything military. Ms. Biggar writes a love story that is so much more than just the romance. There is human trafficking, the Drug Cartel, a Russian Las Vegas mob out for revenge, a tortured soul and regrets. The story is told not only in the two main character POV’s but also other characters which for me Josie's Review This is my first time reading a book by this author and I’m so glad I decided to give this one a try. I love books that deal with second chance loves, a secret child and of course anything military. Ms. Biggar writes a love story that is so much more than just the romance. There is human trafficking, the Drug Cartel, a Russian Las Vegas mob out for revenge, a tortured soul and regrets. The story is told not only in the two main character POV’s but also other characters which for me added more to the plot of the story. Is it possible to forgive the love of your life for walking away from you for 8 long years then to see that vey person standing right in front you one and you realize your feelings have not changed? The Rebels Redemption is filled with romance, suspense, danger and mystery. It had me feeling a slew of emotions stemming from fear to happiness, rage to confusion a result of me biting my nails. Both the main characters in the story, Jared and Annie, are complex characters. Their stories, thoughts and love are all consuming and captivating. Annie has always loved Jared, when he finally sees her as more than his best friend, she thought she would get her happily ever after. Unfortunately, the morning after she gave herself to Jared, he ran off and joined the US Navy Seals. She never heard from him and was forced to raise her child by herself always wondering what happened. Annie has made a good life for herself and her child. She owns her own business, has wonderful friends and is a wonderful mother, but even while dating the sheriff there is something missing from her life. Just as she starts to get comfortable dating Jack, Jared comes back to Tidal Falls. Jared’s character is one that is complex, difficult but he is also tender, caring and protective. He is full of regrets. His biggest one is Annie. When he comes face to face with the woman he’s always loved and a little boy that looks just like him, he decides he is staying in Tidal Falls and is going to make some changes in his life. Jared does not care that Annie is dating Jack, even when he sees them together he gets the urge to get Annie away from him. He blames himself for walking away 8 years ago but he is willing to make things right, unfortunately and old enemy comes to town and is hell bent on take everything and everyone that means anything to Jared away. Jared is not willing to let anyone hurt Annie, his son and his mother without of fight. With the help of the local sheriff and his SEALS buddies Jared will go to war against his enemy and will stop at nothing to eliminate the threat. This story did not disappoint, not only does the author gives readers a beautiful and natural love story that surpassed years but she also adds suspense to keep readers on their toes. I was engrossed with the characters and their story and I was also enthralled by the danger and human trafficking angle added in. Things are not easy for Jared and Annie, both characters are not able to fully trust each other, both feel betrayed and it is hard to overcome the pain of the past. I felt the love they shared for one another as well as their inner turmoil. The authors wrote the character in a way that I felt connected to them and I understood where both Annie and Jared were coming from. Can Jared protect his family from the person seeking revenge? Will Jared able to make amends for his past mistake or will it be too late? Will Annie find the answers to the questions that have lingered over the years? Can Jared and Annie finally have their HEA?

In "Tidal Falls," we are a introduced to Jared after he gets beat up by a member of the Russian mafia for counting cards in his casino. In return, Jared sets it up so that the sprinklers and fire alarm go off at the same time all the slot machines let loose their winnings. A major financial loss to the casino and a major embarrassment to the Russian. Jared has returned home to Tidal Falls again. This time he says he is staying for good despite his past history. (Slightly more insight is provided as to why he left so quickly and his love and hate of small towns. But he has yet to have that talk with his mom and to truly come to an understanding.) The reader quickly clues into who the person was Annie fell in love with so many years ago. Her best friend from high school: Jared. While out walking Jake (the dog), Jessica and Chris come see the dog. Jessica is very attached to him. During this time while she is giving Jake a ton of attention, Jarod sees Chris and begins to put a few things together and realizes that he has a son. And to top things off, while at the diner his mother owns, he sees the woman he has never been able to keep from his mind for the past 8 years: Annie. A lot of pieces to put into place for one man in a short period of time. But they will have to wait...The Russian has come to exact revenge from Jared for his stunt in Las Vegas. And Barnikov's first stop to pass along the message: Annie and her craft store. Despite several major subplots running through this novel, the main story is fast moving, very thorough and leaves nothing out. The subplots sometimes weave in and other times stay as subplots, and did well in that role. Once again her characters tell a lot of the story through their behavior and actions. When Barnikov takes Jessica and Chris and runs, it takes Jack and Jarod's SEAL team friends to put together a general area search. But it isn't until Annie tells everyone about her dream, and deal site everyone's resistance of using it, to begin to put another piece of the puzzle into place and find where Barnikov and the children are. Things move quickly and chaotically after that until Adam makes the tough decision to kill Barnikov. As a sniper his shot his him dead on and saves Annie's life. At the same time, Adam realizes that in making that decision, he no longer would be able to interrogate him to help find his missing partner, Maggie. While he picks up and starts to leave, he gets a phone call from Frank, his SEAL CO, who has found something of interest...connected to Maggie. Things end well, for the most part. Chris settles in well with knowing Jarod is his father and Grace his grandmother. Jarod and Annie are ready to move forward with their lives and to make up for lost time. There are still some unanswered questions...and a separate situation still to unfold around Maggie. I look forward to more fun and excitement in the next book in the "Wounded Hearts" series. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Amazon link: http://amzn.to/1RVWr5h

    The Rebel's Redemption was a fast paced second chance romance with a lively mix of suspense. Former SEAL Jared is back in his hometown, where he sees Annie for the first time since he left eight years ago. Annie has never forgotten Jared, and no man has ever quite measured up to him. The feelings they still have for each other are still strong, but Annie is sure they are not meant to be together. She has a big secret, and Jared has trouble following him.

The feelings they still have for each other are still strong, but Annie is sure they are not meant to be together. She has a big secret, and Jared has trouble following him. Annie knows she can't keep her secret forever...but is it really as big a secret as she thinks? Even if Annie can't be his, Jared is determined to do what he needs to do to protect Annie. Even in crisis they unwittingly turn to each other. The connection is still there, but is it enough for a second chance at love together? Annie and Jared have a history together and there are a lot of undercurrents in the plot that would probably be easier to understand if you read the first book in this series before The Rebel's Redemption. I didn't, and at times I felt like I was missing out on a lot of the background that would have made me understand this couple better. Not only together, but separately. Annie and Jared are strong main characters though, and their past has brought them to where they are today. I didn't really understand Annie's reasoning for her secrecy, but I liked how she knew she had to deal with it. I loved her personality, her independence, and that she really thought about things. Jared was interesting and little more vague for me. He wasn't your typical former SEAL in The Rebel's Redemption, and he seemed to have a lot of layers and secrets of his own lurking. I did like how he was with Annie. There are bumps and old hurts to struggle through before they can move on to the future, but I found myself hoping they could find a way to do this. I felt that this second chance romance was believable, and these characters were realistic. I really liked the secondary characters in The Rebel's Redemption, especially Jack (the sheriff Annie is dating). I liked that the characters were mature and there is a refreshing lack of angst, even when some things don't work out. The suspenseful part of the plot is secondary to Annie and Jack's relationship, but adds a lot of zest and dimension to The Rebel's Redemption. The Rebel's Redemption is a complex, yet at the same time easy to follow story that flows smoothly. I just would have liked more background, but as I said this might have been covered in the first book in this series. With a lot of feeling and emotional up and downs, The Rebel's Redemption is a book I'd recommend to romance readers who like the edge of suspense.

After he returns they realize the passion is still there, and there is a child binding them together. Can they patch things up or are things past saving? I loved the small town feel of this book. All the characters were well developed, and of course they knew each other's business. The setting was well done, and I felt like I was a member of the community. This book is supposed to be a Suspense novel. However, that aspect of the book was a lot smaller than I expected. Yes, I know Romantic Suspense comes in many mixtures, but I wanted more suspense. The ending was predicable, but the good writing helped make up for that. The plot was solid, and I'm considering reading the first book in the series. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I did have a few issues with how she and Jared both acted in the midst of a crisis but going into details will give things away so I will leave it at. Although I will also say, that without ever being in their situation who knows how I would react. I am hopeful that the author will give us future books with a few of the secondary characters, Maggie, Adam, Frank and Jack. I so can't wait for Jack to get a story.

At first a little pissed off but realizes he still loves Annie. Annie on the other hand doesn't want anything to do with Jared until their son is kidnapped along with her best friends daughter. Everything comes to a head at a lake but the story will continue with the next book in the series. Bi will have to go back to get the first one but I will get through all the books in this series.

    Second book of the series, which is amazing! But now I need to get book 1 and read it too! The story line is a pull at the heart string and hard to put down once you start! How one loves another no matter the difference they take in life or the paths they go down. Love seems to always draw those back to each other. But what Jared finds our once returning home that Annie shares... Just WOW!!! The suspense that this book carry with it is enough that you can't read just once more page.

The author has some major skills going in her writing!! *Received for an honest review*

    The Rebel's Redemption, and the Wounded Hearts series, has everything necessary to captivate (hot military men) and comfort (a small-town setting filled with everyday heroes and heroines). After reading book 1 in this series, I was eager to read Jared's story. Loved this bad-boy hero in need of redemption and the spunky small-town girl who challenges him to be worthy of the family he left behind. More than ever I’m looking forward to reading Adam and Frank's stories.

    I like the writing style of Alexandrea Weis. I enjoy her story telling. Her storyline in this book is something I haven’t seen before, the freshness makes it fun. I like the background city of New Orleans it seems like a place I would want to visit. I think that the switch in roles in the story is intriguing. Here we have a male stripper and successful female. I thought the way Alexandrea showed the embarrassment of the strippers in a different light by having it be the male perspective was fant I like the writing style of Alexandrea Weis.

    Jared won a special place in my heart in book #1 of the Wounded Hearts series, Tidal Falls. He's sarcastic, funny, loyal, and of course, gorgeous. Annie is his best friend, and greatest mistake. He hurt her a long time ago, but neither have forgotten. It was a lot of fun getting these two back together, made even more difficult by an enemy from the past who's out to destroy Jared and anyone he cares about.

    2.5/5.0 “The Rebel's Redemption” is the second book in the Wounded Hearts series. While it can stand alone, there are aspects which seem missing and will have readers wondering about the previous installment. Read full review in the 2015 May issue of InD'tale Magazine. 2.5/5.0 “The Rebel's Redemption” is the second book in the Wounded Hearts series.
