Christina and the Rebel Affair – R. Linda


They say a leopard can’t change its spots, but I beg to differ. I’m not the girl I used to be, and now is my chance to prove it. 
I’m back at the high school where I burned a lot of bridges and hurt a lot of people. Only this time, I’m not a student… I’m a teacher. I want to repair the damage I caused and move on… hopefully with Bennett Sawyer.
I’m stunned when I find out Bennett just so happens to be one of my new students — and the principal’s son. I didn’t know it when we began dating, and now we’ve got to put an end to our relationship, or risk losing everything.
But the attraction between us is unstoppable, and when jealousy gets in the way, all I want to do is mark my territory, but I can’t.
With a smile like his, and a body to die for, can I stay away from him and pretend he means nothing… until he graduates in ten weeks?

I’d like to thank Lady Amber’s Tours for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. I can say I have read every one of R. Linda’s books and I have loved each and every one of them! If you want to read this series (you can read them out of order but I’d suggest reading them in this order): Bailey and the Bad Boy, Indie and the Brother’s Best Friend, Kenzie and the Guy Next Door, Harper and the One-Night Stand and then finally Audrey and the Hero Upstairs. I have loved them and of course, had very high expectations!

This one is based on Christina and Bennet, I loved Bennet I fell in love with him in Audrey’s book so I was really excited to see him in his own book. He’s cheeky and smart and I love him so much. I loved how protective he is. Christina was a bit hard to get to grips with in this book although I understood why she did what she did in school and that we all can be teenagers and stupid. Just something about her I couldn’t connect with her properly I mean she was a good character but I don’t really know cannot explain it.

I loved Bennet and Audrey’s friendship, I loved everything about how they were together. I loved that Bennet was so protective of her and that he was willing to do anything for Audrey. It was adorable. I think these parts with Bennet and Audrey were some of my favourites in the book.

I loved seeing all the other characters from the other books and the big family reveal also Bailey and Ryder’s baby little Sage. So cute.

So I think my issue with this whole Bennet and Christina thing is that you don’t get to see much of their relationship it’s about the chase and then them not being together. I really struggled and I felt like the love part was a little forced. Like unlike with the other characters I can’t see Bennet and Christina being together forever like the others. It just felt like sex between them rather than love. So it just felt very forced to me for them. Either way, I enjoyed their story.

I was glad that Christina got some kind of redemption in this book because although she deserved that, we all do silly things in school so I was glad she got some kind of redemption. I think another thing is that she was still acting like she was in high school with her jealousy and although she managed to see her wrongness of that. She felt very immature. But I was glad she got redemption.

I did not feel like this one was as good as the others but I still loved reading about Bennet!
