The Rebel (The Millionaire Malones Book 3) by Victoria Purman Review


 wo people, who regret their missed chance, just might get another…

Sexy Australian pro surfer Cooper Malone lives his dreams on beaches all over the world. While surfing is his passion, he can’t quite suppress the longing for a permanent home with the one woman he let slip away.

World traveler Maggie MacLean first laid eyes on Cooper in a crowded bar on the island resort of Bali six years ago. The sparks and sizzle nearly scorched her bikini, but she never had a chance to explore that intense attraction. Later, when Maggie’s pregnant by a man who wants nothing to do with their child, she puts her passport away and heads home to California to be the best mom she can be.

But when a possible career ending injury sidelines Cooper from his beloved waves, he moves in with the one friend he’s been able to count on. Maggie and Cooper have ignored the burn of attraction for six years. Maggie’s not willing to risk their friendship or her son’s heartbreak when Cooper inevitably leaves to compete, but what if this time Cooper stays and Maggie allows their second chance at love to flame?

My Review:

Steamy hot.  And, I’m not talking about the California sun. 

Single mother Maggie MacLean and Australian pro surfer Cooper Malone are very close friends.  After Cooper’s friend Vance gets Maggie pregnant and then doesn’t want anything to do with her, Cooper steps in.  He doesn’t want to be tied down to a family since he spends his life searching for wave after wave.  But he can be there for Maggie and Evan when he is in town.  What is created is an intense friendship where they can share anything with each other.    

When Copper is injured in a surfing accident, Maggie insists he stay at her house while he recuperates. Will living together hurt their friendship or will it bring them even closer than they ever thought possible? 

This story had the right amount of passion and excitement to keep me interested until the very end. Cooper and Maggie had intense chemistry. I was so glad when they finally gave in to their feelings toward each other.
