The Reckoning (Hard to Resist #2)

S.L. Scott


Jack Dalton was charismatic.

Johnny Outlaw was irresistible.

Two sides of the same man, passionate about two things—music and Holliday Hughes. With her intoxicating mix of strength and vulnerability, confidence and sex appeal, he couldn’t get enough of her.

Together, love was a storm of chaos and calm. When fame became a force to be reckoned with, could their love hold them together or would their notoriety tear them apart?

“This isn’t how our melody goes. This isn’t how we were supposed to play out.”

My Review

“It’s not going to be easy. The worthy battles never are.”

How do I review this book without giving away all its secrets?? This book starts where book 1 ended. If you didn’t read The Resistance, you must read that first, otherwise you will be lost. (and you should stop reading this review because it may contain spoilers).

Holli and Dalton had the whirlwind relationship in book 1, but now they must learn to live together with their different lifestyles. Holli’s business is really taking off so she must learn to juggle her career and her new role as ‘Mrs. Johnny Outlaw’. Dalton is still struggling over the loss of his best friend when jealousy becomes the common theme. When you’re the famous Johnny Outlaw, it seems that nothing you do is private. Everything you do is spun around until the truth is no longer a component. Holli and Dalton must work through their issues… and quickly.

“… every dark day is worth the hundred light ones…”

I loved reading the continuation of Holli and Dalton’s story. Sometimes you read a book with a HEA and wonder… what happens next?? It can’t all be cupcakes and rainbows and this book proves that. It shows how the characters stumble and scramble to put the pieces back together. They aren’t perfect and they make huge mistakes. It makes me love their journey even more.

I was given an arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars
