Rebellion (The Sainthood – Boys of Lowell High #2) by Siobhan Davis

Everything changed the night he betrayed me, and now, the game has entered a new level.

Galen did me a favor, reminding me the only person I can count on is myself, and I’m more determined than ever to avenge my father’s death and avoid the destiny Sinner has mapped out for me.

Saint is used to calling the shots, but there are new rules, my rules, and if he wants me in his life, and in his bed, he’ll toe the line. They all will, because I can’t pull this off alone, and they owe me. I’ll enjoy making Galen grovel, seducing Caz, frustrating Saint, and keeping Theo at arm’s length, because they deserve it for failing me.

Sinner thinks he’s in control, but forcing me into initiation plays right into my hands. War has come to Lowell as rival gangs battle The Sainthood for ultimate power, and I enjoy rebelling from the inside, placing more obstacles in Sinner’s path while I exact my revenge.

But I’m not some innocent thirteen-year-old anymore—I have blood on my hands and lethal enemies on my tail.

I’m playing a dangerous game, especially where my heart is concerned, but there’s no turning back. I haven’t come this far to walk away empty-handed, and the more secrets we uncover, the more we realize how far-reaching the betrayal and corruption extend, and there’s no choice anymore.

The Sainthood must be taken down, and we’re the only ones who can do it.

This is book two of three and it’s not a standalone read. Due to dark themes and content, this #whychoose romance is only recommended to readers aged eighteen and older.

Excerpt Rebellion by Siobhan Davis

Things with Theo were always complicated yet simple. Difficult yet as easy as
breathing. Our relationship now is no less complex, but I know I need to fix things with
him. It’s no different from Galen in that regard. I can’t cause a divide in the group with
me, Caz, and Saint on one side and Galen and Theo being frozen out on the other side.
But even if I do patch things up with them, I still don’t see how it ends up working out.
There are too many barriers to unity, especially with Theo.
I remove my hand from Caz’s. “Hey, could you give us a minute?” I gesture toward
Theo.

“Sure.” He kisses my lips. “I’ll grab us a table.”
Theo lifts his head, his eyes finding mine, and I hate the anguish I discover there,
because I know I’m partly responsible for it. I step toward him. “Hey.” I peer into his
beautiful hazel eyes. Green is most prominent today, but his pupils are ringed in a layer
of brown and amber, and I could stare at his handsome face all day. Tentatively, I reach
out, cupping one side of his face. “You doing okay?”
He shrugs, looking away, and I tilt his face around with my fingers. “Don’t do that.
Please.”
“It hurts so much to look at you sometimes,” he admits, his voice cracking a bit.
“I know.” I press my forehead to his, and my heart beats wildly out of control. “I’m
sorry if I hurt you with Caz in the car.”
“It’s not that,” he says. “I just miss you, Lo. Miss the way we were.” His hands land on
my hips.
“I miss you so fucking much,” I whisper. Tears sting my eyes, and I’m horrified. I pull
back, because I can’t break down here. “Can we go to the park tonight? Just you and
me. Like old times?”
His eyes turn glassy, and a soft smile graces his lips. “I would like that. We are long
overdue a talk.”
I nod. “You hurt me, Theo, and I’m not sure I’m ready yet, but I want to try.”
“I want to try too, because I want to fix things with us.”
“Do you think we can?”
He shrugs. “I don’t know. I think I’m even more confused than I was back then.”
“Because of me or someone else?” I gently inquire.

His eyes pop wide. “Is it—”
I shake my head. “I don’t think it’s obvious.”
The door opens, and Caz pops his head out. “You guys coming or what?”
“Always so impatient.” Theo punches him in the arm, but he’s smiling. “We’re
coming.” He reaches back, and I take his hand, letting him lead me inside.
