Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 5 stars

“You have to figure out whether your love for Gia is stronger than your hate for your brother.”

OMG, I started this book as soon as it downloaded at midnight and read it all the way through without coming up for air, apart from grabbing a few Kleenex. As you may know, I didn’t love, love, love Rebel Heir, but I was still anxious for this one, because if anyone could turn me around, it was these two. Boy, did these two turn me around, not only that, inside out as well. This book was emotional, incredibly emotional and it was absolute perfection. Boy, have I cried a river over this one.

“…And it’s normal to have doubts, because there is always uncertainty in life. We live every day knowing that there’s a possibility we could die. Yet, we get up every day and do what we need to do anyway. Life shouldn’t be about constantly trying to prove that we’re safe from getting hurt. Life should be about living with uncertainty while we watch beautiful sunsets with the people we love.”

Don’t get me wrong, nothing bad happens, seriously, but what these two go through to get what they truly deserved tugged at every single heart string and some. I adored Rush with a passion in this book and was so taken with how responsible he was, how he weighed up everything and never took his decisions lightly. He was a man through and through, with a huge heart of gold, with a wise head on his shoulders and had learned from the mistakes that his father had made with him.

“Don’t let eighteen years pass before you stop running, Rush.”

Gia was her usual unfiltered self and I adored this about her. Gia was the perfect woman for Rush, she took no crap and said what was on her mind. It was this raw honesty between them that gives them the perfect, solid foundation to build their future on. I adored Gia’s relationship with her dad and the scenes between these two were just as emotional as those with Rush. Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward really dug deep in this book and pulled out one hell of an emotional arsenal and they certainly did a doozy on my heart.

I was so glad that this book wasn’t predictable, they turned what for me, was a predictable first book into the unexpected and I lapped up every single word. I highlighted so much in this book, not just sentences, but huge paragraphs as my heart was fit to burst with what I was reading. It was no easy journey for either of them and I am glad that Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward kept it real, honest and raw.

“There really was no more unfortunately in our story.”

Rebel Heart picks up where Rebel Heir left off, thank god, and from the first to last word is fast paced, action packed and full of heart and emotion. This book was the perfect ending for this couple and totally unputdownable. I adore these two writers as both individuals and as a duo and cannot wait to see what comes next.

Book One ~ Rebel Heir


Book Description:

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.
