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.

My Review

Rebel Heir by Authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward is book one in the Rush series duet. It is a contemporary romance.

“You ever just look at someone and know that if you let them, they could turn your life upside down…completely ruin you?”

From the moment I opened this novel and began to read, I had the most insane smile on my face.   I LOVED this novel.

“And for the record, you don’t intimidate me at all anymore.” “Why is that?” I yelled out the window. “Because anyone who has a little angel hanging from their car mirror can’t possibly be that bad.”

Sass and sarcasms flowed like sugary syrup on waffles between Gia and Rush. I got a flush of heat on my skin every time Rush challenged her. And a smirk was inevitably present with Gia’s replies.

“I felt like the big bad wolf lying in Little Red Riding Hood’s bed, and I really wanted to eat her.”

On top of the great banter and form, I had such high anticipation of this budding relationship.  I always know this author duo will write fun ways for characters’ affections to come to light and then thrive. I felt like they put a very special touch on the spark and boom with Gia and Rush, giving us moments in time to cherish.

“It’s like I want to protect you and corrupt you at the same time.”

This was seriously the perfect, feel-good, make-me-pant-for-love read.  Swoon, sigh, simmer, repeat.  Book two can’t come soon enough.

“Because when you finally accept that you found the one, it’s terrifying that you might lose them and then there’d never be another.”
