Fortunately for Rachel, her father chose to ignore that custom and trained her to be a competent fighter. Her character is one that is definitely a force to be reckoned with and the only one that can reel her in, but not stop her, is of course, Logan.
In Jared’s will, he left Logan to be Rachel’s Protector, acting as a bodyguard for Rachel and never letting her out of his sight. I love heroines Defiance is one of the books I’ve been highly anticipating to read this year. Logan wasn’t what I was actually expecting.
And why would women need to be constantly chaperoned by men? This review is also posted at Book Overdose But you still have to remember that she is only 16 years old.
