The prodigal son of Copper Ridge, Oregon, has finally come home 

The man who ruined Rebecca Bear’s life just strolled back into it with one heck of an offer. Years ago, Gage West’s recklessness left Rebecca scarred inside and out. Now he wants to make amends by gifting her the building that houses her souvenir store. Rebecca won’t take Gage’s charity, but she’s willing to make a deal with the sexy, reclusive cowboy. Yet keeping her enemy close is growing dangerously appealing…

He’s the wild West brother, the bad seed of Copper Ridge. That’s why Gage needs the absolution Rebecca offers. He just didn’t expect to need her. After years of regretting his past, he knows where his future lies—with this strong, irresistible woman who could make a black sheep come home to stay…

Gage West was the cause of the accident that changed Rebecca's life 17 years before.  Since then, she has battled surgeries, rehabilitation and scars.  Now he has returned to town determined to make amends and do the right thing.  When I initially read the synopsis for Last Chance Rebel, I thought I was going to get a typical second chance romance.  I got much more than that.  This is a story about forgiveness and moving on.

Initially, I had a hard time with the romance between Gage and Rebecca.  For me, it was hard to buy into a Rebecca sleeping with Gage while she still had so much anger toward him.  She had a pretty big chip on her shoulder, but it was kind of understandable.  As I read, I realized that it was the romance between the couple that allowed them both to forgive and move on. IN the end, their relationship made sense. I liked the secondary characters.  The attitude that Gage's siblings had toward him was pretty believable.  but I would have liked to see more of how their interaction with Gage.

Since this is the 6th in the Copper Ridge series, there is some back story that I was missing.  But it just makes me want to seek them out and read how those couples got together. So, this book did fairly well as a stand alone.
