My world was rock solid.
Until I saw her.
Lara Kessler showed up as if heaven sent her to me, and suddenly my priorities changed. Love is funny like that. One minute you’re living the dream, then BAM! Half my soul shows up backstage wearing a purple shirt and sexy skin-tight jeans, making me realize what I’ve been missing all along. Loving her means exposing a life I’ve tried to bury.
My heart had lost its beat.
Until I saw him.
Kaz Fabian caught my attention the moment I laid eyes on him. Love is funny like that. The famous guitarist was every woman’s fantasy—great face, chiseled jaw, cut biceps. The rock star was pure sex on and off stage, but his charm and charisma won me over. Loving him means burdening him with a life I’ve tried to leave behind.
With her future dim and his past in the spotlight, can they overcome their fate or will they just be another tragic love story?
“Love is funny like that.”
This statement may seem simplistic, but everyone knows that a deep, soulful love is far from easy, and in order to have it, there are times of darkness and sadness, and when love tries to exist and grow amongst the backdrop of fame and paparazzi as well as an ex hellbent on reclaiming what he lost and a bevy of secrets that are best kept hidden, even a love developed over time would be difficult, but what makes things even more difficult is when a love starts out like Kaz and Lara’s did.
Kaz and Lara’s relationship starts in the midst of chaos, ensconced in a mess that is far from over and, at times, seems too challenging to endure, but that doesn’t stop them from taking a chance on finding true love – the kind that they’ve both never had but now seem to be ready for with each other.
But regardless of how deep their feelings may be for one another, Lara is not completely free from her last relationship and even with how patient of a man Kaz is, the blowback of Lara’s issues with her ex has the possibility of destroying Lara and Kaz before they even really get started, and with that destruction, secrets have a way of coming out, causing other difficulties that must be addressed.
When I started The Revolution, I really didn’t remember Lara, maybe because I was so focused on Rochelle and Dex working through their issues, but even without that prior knowledge, S.L. Scott allowed me to understand that the attraction she has for Kaz is not something new; in fact, it’s always been there – their timing was just off. So the fact that Lara starts a relationship soon after breaking up with her ex didn’t bother me. What I struggled with, though, was the fact that she kept making excuses for her ex regardless of how bad things got, and for someone who really didn’t seem that invested in the relationship as well as the feeling that their break up should have happened a while ago, I just couldn’t wrap my head around why it was so difficult for her to let go and to truly see how bad things were before they got extremely out of hand. Don’t get me wrong, Scott portrays Lara’s ex in a way that’s clear that he would come after her despite their break-up, but in a way, it felt like Lara was protecting her ex, even while she was protecting herself and Kaz.
I’m a huge fan of S.L. Scott’s Hard to Resist series. Each story can be read as a standalone, and they all are emotional and steamy reads with rock gods who easily seduce readers as we witness the different members of The Resistance find the right woman to heal their demons and stand by their side.
While The Revolution wasn’t my favorite of the series, I still enjoyed Lara and Kaz’s story and the solidarity amongst Kaz’s band as well as how the women stuck together to not only support their men but each other.

3.5/4 Poison Apples
The woman I’ve fantasized about is finally in my bed. The one who’s starred in my dreams and I’ve imagined when fucking others. She’s here, lying next to me and I can’t sleep.
My chest hurts while watching her. She’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen and equally the most fascinating. She teases and jokes, flirts… and she trusts me. She trusts me with her life. That’s what brought her here tonight. I would do anything for her and she knows it.
I sit up and scrub my hands over the way-too-long scruff that covers my face. She stirs beside me, making me want to stay. I really should, but I just can’t stay here any longer…
A promise is a promise and all that. But some promises are worth breaking. This is one of them.
Meet S.L. Scott
New York Times and USA Bestselling Author, S. L. Scott, was always interested in the arts. She grew up painting, writing poetry and short stories, and willing her days away lost in a good book and the movies.
With a degree in Journalism, she continued her love of the written word by reading American authors like Salinger and Fitzgerald. She was intrigued by their flawed characters living in picture perfect worlds, but could still debate that the world those characters lived in were actually the flawed ones. This dynamic of leaving the reader invested in the words, inspired Scott to start writing with emotion while interjecting an underlying passion into her own stories.
Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. She dreams of seeing one of her own books made into a movie one day as well as returning to Europe. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.
