the reckoning coverThe Reckoning (Hard to Resist #2)

S.L. Scott


Jack Dalton was charismatic.

Johnny Outlaw was irresistible.

Two sides of the same man, passionate about two things—music and Holliday Hughes. With her intoxicating mix of strength and vulnerability, confidence and sex appeal, he couldn’t get enough of her.

Together, love was a storm of chaos and calm. When fame became a force to be reckoned with, could their love hold them together or would their notoriety tear them apart?

“This isn’t how our melody goes. This isn’t how we were supposed to play out.”

tag1The Resistance by S.L. Scott is a book I cherish and will always be considered a treasure. The story of Holliday Hughes, Jack Dalton, and Johnny Outlaw hit something spectacular within me that can never be replicated. When I discovered that their journey was continuing in The Reckoning, I squealed like a little girl getting a precious gift. This author always offers captivating excitement, raw intensity, extremely complex characters, addicting dialogue, heartbreaking scenes, explosive passion, and so much more. What else could you ask for?

After reading the prologue, I had to take some calming breaths as I imagined the worst. S.L. Scott wouldn’t and couldn’t actually do this to them. She did but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I first envisioned. She proved once again why she is one of my favorites by pushing my limits and forcing me to realize she knows best. 

This addition brings forward new challenges and burdens. Life as a rock star might appear to be a dream-come-true but Johnny Outlaw proves that to be a lie. Being married to a touring artist is difficult but Holliday stands by her man. Even with her growing business, thousands of miles of distance, and struggling independence, this pair proves their strength. The ultimate test is yet to come though…

What goes up sometimes shatters back to the ground only to be put back together with greater force, fight, and love.

Holliday is such a genuine woman and I clearly understand her personality. Her love for Dalton runs deep and her devotion is impressive. Even in his darkest moments, Holliday offers him peace and calming. She is his cure and true happiness while he brings her to life with each gentle gesture and romantic word. What they share is out-of-this-world phenomenal. Dalton and Johnny battle is out yet again throughout the pages. Who will win out? The powerhouse journey this author has once again created for these two stole my breath several times.

With every new twist this is a severe turn and I refuse to give anything away. Just know you must read what happens next with Dalton and Holliday. You owe yourself a fantastic novel and to escape reality for a bit. This series should be next on your list and I cannot recommend it enough.
