Reviewed by Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite

Political thrills and chills. Intrigue. Romance. Sexiness. All things that make up a great read in my estimation. And all of these and more can certainly be found in Dissident, the first book in The Bellator Saga by author Cecilia London. Our story follows protagonist Caroline Gerard, a young widow with two children, as she gets further involved in the life of politics, and further involved with Jack McIntyre, the steamy politico with a real reputation as a playboy. When both Caroline and Jack find themselves on the run, the targets of a political plot that puts both of their lives at risk, they also find themselves more and more drawn to each other. Will they survive to find a life together?

Dissident was a fantastic book. Fantastic. It had me hooked from the very first page and through to the end. Equal parts excitement and sexy, steamy scenes kept me reading long past the time I should have put the book aside to sleep, and I read it through to the end. Author Cecilia London does a great job with character development, scene setting and writing fantastic yet realistic scenarios that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I highly recommend Dissident to any reader that loves a fast-paced, intriguing work of fiction with a hefty dose of sexiness and steam, a reader who enjoys thrills and political intrigue, or anyone just looking for a highly engaging and fun read. This is the first book of a planned six-book series, and I certainly hope that Cecilia London is hard at work at the next installment. I, for one, will be lined up to read it when it’s out!
