BOOK REVIEW: Resurrection (Wesson Rebels MC, #3) by Shyla Colt

Title: Resurrection
Series: (Wesson Rebels, #3)
Author: Shyla Colt
Genre: New Adult
Cliffhanger: No
HEA: Yes

This book, Resurrection, is #3 in the Wesson Rebels MC series. Each book can be read as a standalone—which is a good thing, because (unfortunately) I haven't read book #2 or book #1.

What endeared me to Resurrection (beside the promise of a hot biker) was the blurb:
"A horrific betrayal stole her voice and nearly her life. Mute and broken, Vita retreated from the world. Dependent on her brother Houdini, the family farmhouse where she licked her wounds became a tower to hide in. When her brother winds up missing, she must come clean about their past to his M.C. The result is a downward spiral that will change both of their lives forever.

The only one in Wesson Rebels who can understand sign language is Prophet. He finds himself assigned to the petite beauty. When her lies about her past become a tangled web, that threatens to ensnare them all, like changes to loathing. She’s just like the woman who ruined his family and almost took his life. Determined to keep her at a distance, he puts up a wall. When fate forces them to depend on each other for survival, barriers tumble down, truths come to the light, and an unbreakable bond is forged.

When reality returns, they have two choices, retreat into the darkness or remain in the light?"
Doesn't blurb sound full of awesome? Well, it was. Defiantly a new take on the MC New Adult books out there... Vita is not your average Mary Sue, and Prophet isn't your average naughty biker. They're both broken, scarred, and wounded—emotionally and physically—seemingly beyond repair.

Vita (known pre-death as 'Elisa') had been mutilated by someone she grew up to trust, while Prophet (formerly known as 'Charles') had been betrayed by someone he dared to put his hope, his love, and his faith, into.

After surviving their heartaches, Vita and Prophet have hidden themselves from the world—running from any future pain, and hiding from their bloody pasts.

Only now, they're both forced to stop running, to stop hiding. If they want to save Vita's blood-brother and Prophet's club-brother, they'll have to work together (despite their instant dislike for each other) to win the war...

Together, Vita and Prophet were fire and ice—and I loved to read them freezing and burning each other.

From page one, Resurrection had be hook, line, and sinker. There was blood, there was guts, there was bada*s bikers. And as bullets fly, cars are crashed, and lives are lost... there was love (and great sex; can't forget about that *wink*) Overall, it was a hellofa ride—and I loved every heart-stopping second of it.

As I closed out of the book on my Kindle, I had a smile on my face—and nothing feels better than ending the book with a grin. Which makes me wonder: ...when is book #4 in the series coming out, because if it has anything to do with my poor, tortured (but tough-as-sh*t) Houdini, I want in on that action—ASAP.

 PS: *I was given an ARC of this book from NetGalley. But I do solemnly swear that I am up to... good. ;) This is a fair and honest review of this book. Pinky promise.*
