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.
Rebel Heir is the first book in the Rush Series Duet. Book Two, Rebel Heart, will release six weeks later on May, 22, 2018.

LOUISA’S 4.5 BLUSH REVIEW
Let’s start from the beginning- the cover – seriously Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward – you girls are the QUEENS of hot book covers. I so enjoy imagining Rush as this beautiful man, so thank you for that.
Next – the characters…Rush – umm yeah- jerk off, asshole, arrogant jerk that I wanted to hate, but as the story unfolds, this man is an anomaly, the epitome of book boyfriend. A few times my stomach dropped at how I thought he was going to react and when he did the exact opposite, my faith in the bad boy was renewed.
Gia – this girl, she’s fun, sassy and takes no shit from the above-mentioned Rush. This totally the ying to his yang! Their banter back and forth was funny and sexy at that same time. The attraction between them was palpable.
“It’s like I want to protect you and corrupt you all at the same time. It’s fucked-up.”
“It’s not fucked-up. It’s sweet.”
“You wouldn’t think it’s was sweet if you knew what was going on in my head right now.”
The feels – they are all in there. This book is sweet, angsty, sexy, dirty, funny, twisty and I may have shed a tear or two…all the ingredients of a great book.
As you can see from the synopsis, this is a duet, be prepared for a cliffy, one I kinda saw coming but it didn’t distract from the fondness I have for the book. Even though I had a feeling where this was going I can even imagine where this story may go.
Come on May, I need more!
“…sometimes the risk of what bad things could happen keeps us from experiencing all the good things life has to offer.”
Sandy’s 4.25 Blush Review
Rush is a poor little rich boy. The bastard son of a powerful man who was recognized by the ailing family patriarch. This further alienates Rush from his sperm donor father and brother. Though he has a close relationship with his mother, his relationships with women are transient.
Gia is an author who has rented a beach house for the summer to finish writing her book. She was abandoned by her mother as a baby and raised by her loving father. She’s just branching out and living her life.
Rush is a jerk! Arrogant, rude and used to getting his way. Gia is smart, open hearted and not about to take any nonsense from Rush. Oil and water? No. More life gasoline to a match! These two meet when Gia fills in as bartender for her roommate Riley even though she knows nothing about tending bar. Struck by the hot as hell guy that just walked in, she admits that she has no idea what she’s doing. Then she finds out he’s the owner and the games begin.
Rebel Heir is told in dual viewpoints. I liked knowing what each one was thinking/feeling. The banter between these two is sexy and funny and I loved it. Having given himself a strict “no dating the employees policy” how is Rush supposed to control himself around this woman who manages to challenge him at every turn? Gia feels the same way about Rush but unlike him she has no intention of trying to resist her feelings.
He’s rich and gorgeous. She’s sassy and sexy. Such close proximity with off the charts chemistry, what can possibly to wrong? LOTS! Here comes a BUMP in the road. I expect Rush to run for the hills and Gia to throw in the towel. Yet he finally lets his heart show and she stands her ground. Then just as you think phew! glad that’s over BOOM here comes another bump.
I was like Oh my God that’s it!? Where is the rest?! Vi and Penelope better be writing Book #2 right this very minute. Rebel Heir is funny, sexy, smart, so so angsty, a little heartbreaking and totally enjoyable read.
