4.5 Star Review by Guest Reviewer Dawn Mazzeo

I never know what to expect when I pick up a book to review, but holy
hell, it wasn't this! In a Heartbeat (a Rebel Walking novel) by Hilary
Storm was just THAT good. I rarely get this pulled into a book
immediately, but Eaven and Talon's love story had me just completely
sucked in. Not since Beautiful Disaster or the Thoughtless series have
I been so caught up in a couple.

This is a Young Adult book and takes place in college. Talon is in a
rock band-"Rebel Walking"-, and has an unbelievably dark past. His
character is so endearing. Hilary Storm creates super fun characters
with their own distinct voices. She divides the book up into
different characters voices and this works well and keeps the story

This book has a lot of drama, much of which I just did not see coming,
and that was half the fun of it!

I loved the sexy scenes between Talon and Eaven (I mean some of them
were just really HOT), and I loved the plot and suspense-none of which
I can reveal (sorry).

My only criticism is that there were a few typos and mixed tenses that
jolted me out of the story-this annoyed me because I was so IN it, I
hated to get OUT of it, if only for a second.

Although a series, this book is really a stand alone and not a tear
jerker or a love triangle (I needed a break from both). The next
Walking Rebel #2 is the story of two supporting characters (which will
be fun to read!) I highly recommend this one-a fun, sexy, summer read.
