About Rebel Heir

How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd.  A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter.  My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

One thing is for certain is that I love when Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland team up to write a book. These two are my favorite duo author pair and I absolutely couldn’t wait to get my hands on Rebel Heir. If you’ve read their previous books, you know that there will ALWAYS be some sort of emotional twist and THIS was not what I expected at all. It completely threw me off. I think 2018 is the year of duets for authors and I’m quickly becoming to loathe them because of the fact that we have to wait for the conclusion. I’ve read 4 duets this year so far and I’m still waiting for the conclusion for 3 of them.

I love the fact that when I began this book, I quickly became caught up in their story. Vi and Penelope write seamlessly into every page, every word has you hooked. Their books they have written together are all binge-worthy. It’s hard to put them down. I read Rebel Heir in a matter of hours, but it’s always like that with their books.

Rush and Gia, an unlikely pair that couldn’t be more perfectly matched. After Gia pulls a solid for a friend and covers her shift at a local bar/restaurant, which turns out to be a horrible idea since she makes a horrible bartender, she was persistent and kept going. Until she helps someone who she thought was a customer, but it turns out to be the boss man.

After that embarrassing yet honest introduction, she manages to get a job out of it, which is a perfect time filler since she needs her days to write her romance book. Even though he caught Gia redhanded doing someone else’s job, horribly might I add, it made a lasting impression on Rush. No matter how many times he tells him, he can’t seem to stay away from her.

Gia is all sass with a bit of sweet on the side, makes it so easy to love her! Rush comes off as the ultimate bad boy, but there’s so much more to him. And only a select few truly know his character and it’s such a likable one.

Their banter is absolutely hilarious and Rush’s talk is so damn filthy, it’ll just melt your panties off!

I love as you read this, you’re just so caught up in their story and completely forget about the little twist they always throw in their books. It blindsided me so bad that my emotions couldn’t handle it. I literally started to cry, it was embarrassing!

I’ll be honest and say I’m a bit worried about the conclusion book because it’s not going to be all sunshine and rainbows. And let’s just say it took Rush a hell of a long time to finally admit to some things when it pertained to Gia. I don’t blame him, everyone has a past and relationships can be downright scary. I’m curious to see how they’ll get through this.

There it is, I love this book and am so damn impatient for the conclusion of Gia and Rush’s story especially with that LITTLE cliffhanger ending. Such a mix of emotions and I’m still reeling from it.

If you’re a Vi and Penelope fan, you won’t be disappointed!
