    ** 2,5 stars ** This is one of those books that I like to call the fillers. You know, short, lighter ones that we can squeeze between "bigger" books. And let's be honest, when a book is that short, I expect it to be smutty to entertain me. The story is not that important, if it's good, that's a bonus, but it is rare for me to fall in love with a short novella.

This one wasn't that smutty, I mean there was some steam, but not enough for my dirty self, I guess. Sam is in New Orleans to drown his sorrows after having his heart broken by long time friend with benefits Izzy, who chose some other guy. He meets Fiona at the bar and then everything goes way too fast. Too much insta lust/love for my taste, they hardly met and were ready to change their whole lives to be together. Anyway, it can be read as a standalone, but I think it will be more appreciated by the fans of "Men Of Inked" series, who know who Sam/Flash is and his story with Izzy and why he found himself in New Orleans. For me it was just ok. ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Sam and Fiona make plans to explore their sexual attraction to one another, and find that there may be more between them. I think I liked this book because I know Flash and his history with Izzy from the Men of Inked Series (which I really like). Based on the perspectives in the other books in the series, I didn't really ever care about Sam and found him to be a pretty disposable character. This story helped me connect with him more and understand some of his perspective and also begin to care about him. I did quickly hope that Sam would find some comfort, and found myself cheering both he and Fiona on as they found pleasure in one another as well as a possible future. *An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review Read as part of the Night Shift Anthology

    2.5 Insta-Love Stars This was just not very interesting, and was insta-lust-love turned up to high. I get people meet and have crazy hot chemistry, but really after one weekend together, they decide to quit their job and move to another city. Just doesn't seem plausible. This was just meh for me.

It short and sweet and as hot as fucking hell. I pride myself on being a Chelle Bliss fan-girl and I can't believe this one flew under my radar. Shhhh... don't tell Chelle!!! Sam or in the other series he's called Flash was one of those characters that I wasn't sure how I felt about him. I liked him, I hated him and now I absolutely love him. I have a feeling that he's slowly burrowing under my skin and taking up permanent residence. He's in NOLA to put his past behind him... namely that cray cray Izzy Gallo, but what he doesn't expect is a breath of fresh air to waltz into his life at the Funky Pirate! Enter, Fiona! Fiona is all kinds of deception. On the outside she seems pure and innocent but on the inside she's a freak and I love her completely for it. She's a nurse by trade and I don't mind saying that she could patch me up anytime. She doesn't see to need the same thing Sam does. I think she's already found herself, she just needs her other half to make her whole again. She's funny, she's witty, and she a sex on a stick!! One of my favorite parts in the story was when Fiona took Sam for a walk through the city and stumbled upon the old lady in the square. Eye opening and jaw dropping! I wanna go to NOLA just to have my fortune read by that old lady!!! This is a great little spin-off novella from the Men of Inked series. I enjoyed it immensely. The pacing is perfect, the dialogue flows with absolute expertise and is oh so sexy and nasty. You can find this tasty little number in the Night Shift Anthology. ARC provide by Author for an honest review 5 Stars!

    This story gave me a different perspective into the workings of Flash. Flash or otherwise known as Sam has been pining over a woman his entire life. Waiting and waiting. New Orleans is his second chance at life and love. I'm happy he got his HEA.

    This was a fantastic introduction to a couple that just seemed to have been plucked from the sky and put into each other’s paths. The chemistry between them is incredible and the steamy hotness is so intense that I was blushing just reading it.

    "I wanted her to remember me. I wanted her to want me." Aww Sam. I had no idea how this man thought. He's sweet and caring. I didn't even know he was in love with Izzy, well what he thought was love. Then he meets Fiona. This woman changed the broken hearted boy into the happy blissful man. He did the same for her. Getting over a broken heart herself, she took a risk and gave another man a chance to mend it. In such a short time, they changed each other's lives. More than you would expect from a "I wanted her to remember me. I wanted her to want me." Aww Sam. I had no idea how this man thought. He's sweet and caring.

"Fiona seemed relaxed and carefree. There was a kindness to her. A side much like my own, caring and warm. I was drawn to her. It was something I hadn’t felt from another person in years. Wanted." This story is very short but very well worth the time. I'm hoping for more of Sam and Fiona in future Alfa Pi books...please? One click! ((HUGS))

    OH MY GOODNESS!!! What an opening, thank you Chelle for an intense first chapter. I had to take a few minutes to get my breathing back to normal before I could continue on. But continue on I did. This novella sets a scene where Sam has gone away for some time to himself, after who he thinks is the love of his life choses someone else. So this weekend away is just what he needs to clear his head. I would highly recommend you read the "Men of Inked" series is order, although I haven't, I was still OH MY GOODNESS!!!

    Great book on Sam. I didn't really care for him in the other books but reading this book about him changed my perspective. We get to see Sam when he is lost emotionally after losing Izzy even though he never really had her in the first place, but as he sits and drowns his sorrow's in a New Orleans bar is where his life takes a turn for the better. This is when Fiona enters his life, and even though she is a little forward she does it a nice artisy sort of way. Sam falls hard for Fiona and they d Great book on Sam.

    I always felt like something was missing when it came to Sam. I love Sam and I love the instant connection he and Fiona shared. I never knew Sam could be so sweet and sexy at the same time! It was obvious from their first meeting that they belonged together. Chemistry is everything and that first spark lit a fire that devoured them both. After everything these two had been through I was glad to see them find each other. we all know how much Sam "loved" Izzy, but he only found true love in NOLO, I always felt like something was missing when it came to Sam.

    I really liked Sam (Flash) and was glad Chelle wrote a short story for him. When he was with Izzy you would think ok they will be together but no, she didn't see him that way a Izzy fell in love with James. Now broken hearted Sam had to get away. Would he find what he needs in New Orleans? I love all Chelle's books and The Gallo clan is my fav. Love this book and can't wait for more of the Gallo

    Boy oh Boy After reading resist me I thought Sam/Flash was a pansy little boy, but I was wrong. Rebound shows Sam really cared for Izzy and she unitionally broke his heart, or so he thought. While Sam ran off to NOLA to escape and "find himself" he found Fiona which shows him he really never "loved" Izzy the way he thought he did. Now he realizes Izzy was never his One and Fiona is. I can not wait for more of the Sam Fiona story. There HAS to be more!!!

    *ARC received in exchange for an honest review* Even though this was short and sweet, it seemed just right for Sam and Fiona to get their point across. I loved their easy relationship and how we got to see how they met and how they started. I've always loved chelle bliss' books and I'll probably forever will. Looking forward to more!

New Orleans is a place he can run from his pain and try to forget the woman who broke it.

    Finding love in an unexpected place Flash aka Sam, loved Izzy Gallo forever. Things didn’t work out the way Flash had hoped. He heads to New Orleans to lick his wounds, finds his true love and calling. Alfa investigations needs help. Thomas calls and asks him to join them. His relationship with James is iffy, but he wants to come back home. This ought to be interesting. Sexy, fun book set in New Orleans. A quick and easy read. A definite recommendation especially if reading the series. This book shou Finding love in an unexpected place Flash aka Sam, loved Izzy Gallo forever. Things didn’t work out the way Flash had hoped.

    Sam "Flash" and Izzy grew up together and when they became adults moved their friendship to one with benefits. When Izzy fell in love with James, Flash lost the girl of his dreams. At least he thought he did, until he makes a trip to NOLA and a chance encounter makes him realize his dreams were just getting started. Fiona and Sam were H-O-T! and steamy when it came to getting down and dirty. Really enjoyed this short story of Flash finding his HEA!.

    Into something more! I didn't like Sam in the other Gallo books but he finally comes into his own in Rebound. Meeting Fiona in a bar in New Orleans where he's trying to escape and South his soul. He knows there's something in Fiona that calls to him. Chelle has given us a novella that rounds off a character not given chance to shine in earlier works and the chemistry between Sam and Fiona gives the reader that little extra!

    2.5 fair stars. I had a bad impression when I met the H from previous books. The author portrayed him to be pu#*y ass. So, when I started reading his novella I just didn't connect with him. Don't get wrong the short story was good and well thought out and I'm glad he was able to find someone and reconnect. It's just for me, there was no redemption.

    In the Rebound Novella we find out how Sam gets over Izzy Gallo. How he meets Fiona in New Orleans, and their immediate connection. Sam's story is short, but gives you a great background about the changes in his life … from work to his new relationship with Fiona. I volunteered to review an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
