"...this isn't going to be an easy romance. But there's just something about the way Lili writes her books and characters that makes all of the heartbreak worth it." -5 Stars
"...a roller coaster of epic proportions, with so many twists and turns that I felt like I was literally falling apart with Sam and Danny...I bawled like a baby for the last 10% of the book. This is a very intense story and you will want to immediately dive into the conclusion, which is what I am doing." -5 Stars

At thirteen, Danny and Samantha's friendship bloomed into a beautiful relationship. Samantha was the girl that saw Danny as more than the troubled teen, and her compassion and love for him made him want to be a better person. Danny's support and love for Samantha helped her deal with the pain of her parents divorce. Even when Danny moved to Croatia with his family, that bond they shared could not be severed. Both always finding time to speak on the phone and seeing each other whenever they could. Nothing could break them apart, or could there be?
Now, at 20, Danny is a successful business owner still living in Croatia and Samantha is a college student living in California. A terrible secret that Samantha is keeping slowly begins to chip away her future plans and she quickly realizes that she needs to escape. Secretly planning to flee the country so she doesn't have to deal with reality, Samantha meets Danny at the airport for one of his visits and tells him they are taking a vacation to New Zealand. Danny knows that Samantha hiding something but goes along with it.
Samantha dislikes having to keep this secret from Danny and does whatever she has to, to keep them together. However, bad luck seems to follow them and slowly Samantha's secret brings the ugly out in the both of them. Samantha eventually decides that she cannot run from the truth and returns to California. Can Danny and Samantha find their way back to each other once the whole truth is revealed? Can their love really withstand anything?
There was an innocence and vulnerability about them both, and their ability to see the best in each other and grow as a couple. Although, even the best of relationships cannot survive secrets. Can't wait to see what happens next since we are left with the question, "WHAT WILL HAPPEN NOW???"
The story of Sam and Danny is not a simple love story of boy meets girl. Although it start out that way when Sam and Danny meet as children and grow into adolescence together, life and it's challenges pull them apart. Now when they finally comes back together Sam has a secret. She's distant and withdrawn and Danny can't put his finger on what happened during their time apart. When the truth comes out will they be able to weather the storm or is their untested love destined to fail?
I can not wait for the next book in this series because this one will definitely leave you with a cliffhanger.
This is the first book in the Rebel Hearts series by the talented Lili Valente.
Danny met the love of his life at 13 and now at 20 he's still with her. She's convinced him to run to New Zealand and he goes along for the ride. It soon becomes clear that she's hiding something and he can't figure out what it is. Their adventure takes a turn for the worse and Sam runs. Danny eventually finds out her secret. Will her lying destroy them? Can she let Danny back into her life? Can't wait for the next one to see if they can make it! This ends on a cliffhanger, but you don’t have to wait to long for the conclusion!
Although I feel compelled to say so much more in my review, I fear that going any further could spoil this for the readers so I am going to stop right here. Except to say that this is a heart-wrenching story of the struggles faced by Sam (and Danny) with the ultimate conclusion leaving me seriously questioning what I would have always hoped to be true: that honesty and truth will prevail in the end.
This is not one of those run of the mill, sappy love stories. Don’t get me wrong: this is undeniably a love story. However, this novel deals with some serious real-life issues which may definitely make it difficult for some readers. And be prepared as Ms. Valente has left us with a cliffhanger leaving me with anticipation for the conclusion of Danny and Sam's story.
Wow Ms. Valente, you have completely taken me far beyond with your penning of Rebel Hearts. Although the synopsis intrigued me, making me wonder where you were going to go with this story, I never anticipated the bumpy and emotional road you would lead me down. Well done Lili! Very well done indeed!
