Synopsis 
Rebel and Sophia's story.
The first of a three part series. This novel contains a small snippet which has already been released in the Owned: An Alpha Anthology, however it is followed by a full story installment.
Sophia
Sometimes, you don't mean to become another person. Sometimes the choice is made for you, and pretending is the only thing that keeps you going. When Alexis Romera is taken and her kidnappers find her fake ID in her purse, she must become Sophia in order to keep her family safe. Revealing her real identity to the man she's sold to would be easy enough, but can she trust him? Hell bent on revenging the murder of his uncle, Rebel doesn't seem all that interested in playing things safe.
In fact, nothing about the secretive, dark and brooding MC president seems safe at all.
Rebel
What do you do when the man who raised you is murdered, and the only witness is kidnapped girl who's being sold as a sex slave? You buy her, of course. As president to the most powerful motorcycle club in America, Rebel isn't lacking in power. There are strings the man can pull, and entire criminal organisations and corporate businesses alike would fall to their knees. However, along with such power comes intense interest. The DEA have their eye fixed solely on the MC...and they're just waiting for Rebel to trip up.
Getting Sophia to testify is the only way to bring the Los Oscuros cartel down. The beautiful, dark haired, dark eyed woman is belligerent and uncooperative and unlikely to bend to his will, but Rebel has a few tricks up his sleeve to make her compliant--he'll charm her until she's bending over backwards to please him.
Of course, falling for her might cause a few hiccups along the way...


My Review
Eeeeeek! I was SO excited for this book, I had been waiting patiently for Rebel and Sophia’s story and it certainly did not disappoint. Callie has once again given us another compelling, well written story. And this time with a whole lot of badass biker hotness! 

Alexis, a girl simply in the wrong place at the wrong time who ends up being dragged into a dark world she never knew existed in her reality. 

Alexis is gone, and in her place, is Sophia. 

Sophia is sweet but strong and totally loveable. We watch her her struggle, come to terms with her the life she has been thrown into, and ultimately, we watch her slowly fall in love. 

Rebel, the president of an outlaw mc club in New Mexico has one thing on his mind after watching a family member murdered in cold blood. Revenge. To exact his revenge though, he has to use the girl. Will Rebel put Sophia's life in more danger? Or will falling for her change everything?

What I really enjoyed about this book was the fact Rebel and Sophia's relationship grew steadily to what it became by the end of the first instalment. I'm now ridiculously anxious for book two! Although there is a cliffhanger, don't worry people, it isn't a bad one. 

I was so surprised and intrigued as I read every single page of Rebel because it was not exactly what I  was expecting. I had been waiting and waiting to see how the story of Alexis falling into the hands of Rebel and his club happened that when I started reading this I was just thinking 'wow' after each page. I was never a huge fan of Alexis so getting into her mind and Rebel's really was an eye opener for me. I now completely adore both of them! 

Rebel was H.O.T! And Cade, this man, now he intrigues me. He is gorgeous, a charmer, sweet and I really just can't get enough of him. I hope to read more of him soon. This was a fabulous read, it had angst, mystery, action, some serious sexual tension and some humorous moments here and there too. I loved every moment of it, thanks Callie for giving us well developed characters and a fantastic story line.

Excerpt
“It’s time for you to tell me your name.” She arches an eyebrow at me. I can just imagine her getting them waxed in some fancy fucking boutique beauty parlor in Seattle, run by Asian hipsters with shaved undercuts and thick glasses. She seems like the type. “Why do you want to know?” she asks, cockiness filling her voice.
“I’m asking because I need something to call you. And if you don’t tell me your name, I’m going to be forced to call you One Eighty-One. And I’m guessing you won’t like being called One Eighty-One.”
“Why would you call me that?”
“Because that’s the reference Hector Ramirez gave you when you uploaded your picture onto his skin site. Hector tags his girls chronologically. The first girl he sold was number one. The fifty-third girl he sold was tagged fifty-three. Using that logic, guess how many girls he sold before he tagged you one eight one?”
“So a hundred and eighty other women came before me?” She looks like she’s going to throw up.
“Exactly. And he hasn’t been caught. The police haven’t raided his place out there in the desert. No one has reported his website. No one came to rescue the one hundred and eighty other girls who came before you, and no one is coming for you, either. So if you want reminding of that every single time I call you one eight—“
 “Sophia!” She screws her eyes shut, clenching her jaw. “My name is fucking Sophia, motherfucker.” She spits out the words like they’re poison. When she looks at me again, I can see the fury burning in the dark depths of her dark brown eyes. She comes alive when she’s angry. A thrill of adrenalin stabs through me, sending mixed signals to my cock; provoking such a violent reaction from her is provoking an entirely different reaction from me. For the first time, I see her. Fucking Sophia. I don’t see her as a means to an end—a potential way to take down the bastard who killed my uncle. I see her. I see her as a woman, and she is beautiful.
“Alright, Sophia. It’s a pleasure to meet you.”


About the Author
Callie has experienced many changes throughout her life, and gone through many ups and downs that have all worked towards shaping and molding her into the person she is today: fun loving, active, social, and hard working. The only thing that has remained a constant throughout her life is writing. Creating characters who will tear your conscience in two is a favorite pastime of Callie’s. There are few real saints and sinners in her books; more often, the denizens of her stories are all very human. Broken, flawed, and always with the potential for redemption.
Despite the subject matter being markedly hot and heavy in comparison to the stories she wrote in elementary school, there will always be an element of fairytale to her work.
