Editorial Reviews


"The Resistance is a fun, sexy read that you don't want to miss!  This book pulled me in from the first sentence, and I couldn't put it down.  Jack Dalton is hot, and Holli is just the type of protagonist that I like to root for.
~R.K. Lilley, USA Today Best Selling Author
"The Resistance is a unique and refreshingly sexy twist on the usual Rock Star Romance. If you love hot sex, rock stars, and a heroine who is strong and capable, this one is for you!"
~Lisa, Rock Stars of Romance
"5 Stars - another must read from S. L. Scott, who continues to wow me with her ability to suck me into a story and make me feel that I'm standing on the outside watching everything unfold."
~Heidi McLaughlin, USA Today Best Selling Author
 "The Resistance isn't just a book about a Bad Boy Rocker. It's about finding your true north, learning how to cope with the past, finding a way to navigate the present... In the end it's a ride you won't want to get off."
~Jennifer, Wolfel's World of Books

"The Resistance was riveting and hit every note on perfect pitch. I laughed, cried, hurt and swooned. S. L. Scott blew me away!"
~ Amy, Schmexy Girl Book Blog

The Resistance by SL Scott is a HOT, HOT, HOT book!! S.L. has done it once again with this amazingly written story. Every single one of S.L. Scott's books that I've read, I have fallen in love with. Her words will captivate you and pull you into Holli and Dalton's world and through their steamy but definitely bumpy relationship.

Holli, or Holliday, is one of those female characters that I love. She is strong and definitely independent, but also has a soft and vulnerable side to her. A side that needs to be taken care of. She has built up this small business out a simple and silly thing, but is trying her hardest to make a name for herself. Then there is Mr. Jack Dalton. Man, you can tell that this guy is TROUBLE the moment Holli meets him. But what girl can resist a bad boy? The first time that they meet they are in Vegas. And what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right? That's what Holli is thinking when she decides to take this stranger's offer for a quick hookup. We can quickly see that this one night deal won't be just that, especially with the way these two are with each other. But when secrets are uncovered will they be able to go past the Vegas hookup? Will a real relationship be able to occur between these two? Guess you will just have to wait and read!

This book was steamy and hot, BUT it was also very romantic and sweet. There were lines or scenes in this book that had me fanning myself to cool off and other parts that had me swooning over Dalton and his way with words. I seriously LOVE S.L.'s "Welcome To Paradise" series and love Evan, BUT I think THIS is my favorite book from her up till now (that may very likely change once she releases something else lol). S.L. Scott has a way with words to pull her into the story and captivate you, this book is no exception!! You DON'T want to pass it up!!

I've been following S.L. Scott's books since our blog participated in the tour for A prior Engagement. I was fortunate enough to get an early copy of her latest book The Resistance. I'm a hug fan of rocker books and was super excited to hear she was writing one! I truly believe that this book is her BEST work yet! She's always had good heroines and sexy HOT heroes but the ones in this book aren't just good they were EXCEPTIONAL!!!

Holliday Hughes is a business woman. She's successful, intelligent, savvy, and humbly beautiful! She's also had some rough times but she doesn't let them break her down. Her strong will to succeed sets her apart from the class of heroines I'm use to reading in books. That doesn't mean she doesn't have weak moments, but even in those times her strength, compassion and ability to forgive shine through.

Jack Dalton or just Dalton whatever you want to call him has to be one of my favorite rockers to come along in a long time. He's got all the suave sexy good looks, the voice to make a girl melt and 1000 lbs of baggage! But he will make you swoon, seriously piss you off and make you fall in love with him.

When these two first meet it's instant attraction and sparks fly! But doubt and insecurities quickly creep up on them both. Holliday and Dalton have a lot of issues and working through them at times is like a category five tornado destroying everything in it's path. But after the storms clear and the sky settles, the reconstruction begins. It isn't an easy road Or a short one, but when true love comes along it's worth the time rebuilding it. No love is perfect and no person is perfect. We all have flaws, it's what we choose to do about them.

There are some seriously winding turns in this one that I never saw coming. S.L.

I hate to write poor reviews but this book was ALMOST one I DNF - I was even thinking of quitting it at 96%. It had serious potential but it felt so disconnected. I loved the idea of the plot being a young business woman who seems to have her s*** together as opposed to the usual "little virgin" or "sappy love sick heroine" - but then somewhere along the line Holli became the latter. It was also long winded in areas and then went in a flash in others where I would seriously re-read sections trying to figure out how one point got to another. I felt like two different people wrote this book and put it together as one because it was so bi-polar with the mixed emotions and the different plot lines that felt forced. The heroine, Holli, had all the makings to be a strong character, yet got ragged on constantly by Dalton and the moment he mentions her being "his angel" or that he loves her she falls all over herself. Where is the self respect?! I get being love drunk but man this was depressingly dumb behavior for a self-made, young, beautiful business woman. Dalton was a total tool and I know that was how it was suppose to start but I didn't see any progression there by the end of the book. His "small town boy" daddy issues seemed predictable and that angle is just sooooo overplayed!! I felt worse for the neighbor Danny! I actually liked his character more than Dalton! I was rooting for him and then I realized that I didn't even want Holli to have him LOL she deserves the Dalton crazy train! I have only not finished one book ever and that was because it was that pathetic I couldn't take it - this had potential but it was a struggle right down to the last line. The first half of the book felt long winded like trying to use up wording to lengthen the book, then the ending comes and basically zooms by!Read more ›
