REVIEW: Rebel North by J.B. Salsbury


I’m not who I led her to believe. I’m sin wrapped in silk. Betrayal masked by beauty.

And she’s not the only one with scars…

Rebel North, an all-new stunning and seductive standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author JB Salsbury is available now!


These North brothers and their novels are absolutely impossible to pass up...and impossible to slowly read. I started Rebel North with the intention of savoring the reading experience and I wound up devouring the novel in less than a day. I was absolutely absorbed by the story of Kingston and Gabriella.

At first I was taken by the mysterious Gabriella; she was such an interesting mix of things: caring hospice worker, queen of snark and confidence in many situations, and yet self-conscious about the scars she has...the scars that we don't know much about for the vast majority of the novel. I had so much fun reading her sections when she was Kingston's beard. Her snappy comebacks and hilarious cover stories just made me fall in love with her. 

Honestly, Kingston was such a pleasant surprise. I don't know why I assumed that Hayes would have the next novel but I did? And so getting to know the fashion forward, confident Kingston was interesting and fun. Just like Gabriella, he had a lot of humor to offer the story but he also had a lot of heart. I found his story compelling and was cheering for him every time he was up against Hayes or August (a-holes!). And the absolute adoration he had for Gabriella was sweet and really not what I was expecting at all. 

Speaking of surprises...there was definitely a twist I didn't see coming and I LOVE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS. I was just going along, enjoying their story and BOOM! twist. So good. Also the chemistry and sexy-times was fire...another thing I wasn't expecting and really enjoyed.

I can officially say I'm addicted to these North brothers and their stories and I'm so looking forward to seeing Hayes be brought to his knees by someone soon :)

In a city where image is everything, Gabriella turns heads for all the wrong reasons.

The marks that slash across her neck and face turn people away. But I see the beauty that lies beneath, feel a kinship to her pain.

I regret the way she found me—mugged and left for dead. I should walk away, follow the rules, but I can’t. I want to see her again. There’s only one problem.

My brother convinced her I’m gay.

I use that lie to my advantage, persuade her to be my pretend girlfriend, to help protect my fake-sexual identity from my judgmental family. But what starts as a shameless excuse to be near her leads to crossed lines and midnight confessions.

I’m not who I led her to believe. I’m sin wrapped in silk. Betrayal masked by beauty.

And she’s not the only one with scars…
