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.

“All done.” I found Gia in the yard sunbathing. Of course, she had to be lying on her stomach so I could get a closer look at her ass. It was fucking phenomenal. Like a chubby, upside-down heart from where I stood. I’d spent the last hour pretend fixing her car and picturing her riding me reverse cowgirl, those ass cheeks jiggling like fucking Jell-O while she rode me hard. I had to force my eyes to her face and clear my throat to continue. “Here are your keys. Your rotors were shot, too. In the future, don’t ride on bad brakes. It just turns a little problem into a big one.” 

She shielded her eyes from the sun and twisted her neck to look up at me, still not flipping over to her stomach. “Oh. Okay. Thanks. Can I make you some lunch? It’s the least I can do to repay you for hours of working on my car.” 

Is that ass on the menu? 

“No. I have to get going.” 

She lifted from flat on her stomach to on her knees in a yoga-like pose, taking her sweet ass time before turning over. 

“Are you sure?” She bit her bottom lip. “You’ve had to have worked up an appetite.” 

Is she fucking with me? I had an appetite alright. “I gotta run.” 

I sounded like a broken record, yet here I still stood. My head wanted to get the fuck out of that yard, but my traitorous feet wouldn’t move. Not even when she stood up, turned around and practically rubbed her ass against me as she held up suntan lotion. “Could you rub some sunscreen on my back before you go? I don’t want to burn.” 

No. “Sure.” 


I took the sunscreen and squeezed a glob of creamy white lotion into the palm of my hand. Swallowing hard, I began to rub it into her back. Her shoulders were warm and soft with the tiniest little layer of fuzz on it. It reminded me of a peach. My mouth salivated at the thought of biting into her. 

“Could you do a little lower?” 

My breathing became labored and my cock swelled as I lowered my hands and rubbed into the middle of her back. I was breaching into dangerous territory. 

“Lower” she said. I knew from her breathy voice that I wasn’t the only one aroused. 

I lowered to just above her bathing suit bottom and rubbed lotion all over. 

When I finished, she turned her head so I could see the side of her face and closed her eyes to whisper, “lower.” 

Fuck me. 

I couldn’t stop myself. I reached for the creamy sunscreen and squeezed enough into my hand to cover a large person’s full body and then began to rub it into her ass cheeks. She had the most unique heart-shaped mole on her left side that was perfectly symmetrical. I ran my fingertips over it. When I trailed a pool of lotion to the top of her ass crack, and slowly rubbed it in tracing the material of her bathing suit in between her cheeks, she let out a low moan. 

More. Make more sounds like that.  


I have been waiting for Rebel Heir to release since the moment I first saw the cover and read the blurb. I got even more excited when I found out it was going to be a duet. Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward always captivate me with their words and their books always linger with me for a long time.

The chemistry between Gia and Rush was extremely hot and sexy! The banter was super addictive and each new scene that they shared together made me a bigger fan of this couple. From the moment they met, their chemistry started spreading like a wild fire. It was intense, passionate and deliciously sexy!

Mr. Mean meets Miss Sassy in this fun, exciting and passionate reading escape! In Rebel Heir, we follow Gia and Rush's journey. These two meet at The Heights, which is a trendy Hampton bar that Rush owns. Gia has no experience behind the bar and Rush is on the receiving end of one of her mistakes. That will teach her to help her roommate Riley out. Her mistakes are going to cost her Riley her job ... until Rush offers her a job she can't afford to turn down. As days goes by, Gia and Rush get closer together. Their chemistry is undeniable, but Rush keeps her at a distance. Will Gia be able to break down the walls surrounding Rush's heart?

Rebel Heir was a fantastic reading escape! I read it in one sitting because I simply could not put it down! I loved how Rush opened up to Gia. His fear of falling in love was driving him to push Gia away, but this little firecracker pushed all his buttons and made him realize that she was there to stay. It drove him crazy that she got under his skin like that. Crossing the line with an employee was a hard limit for him, but he simply could not stay away from Gia. I absolutely loved Gia!! She's such an intense, fun, loving and confident heroine. She's the kind of heroine I love to cheer for!

This book does end on a cliffhanger so if you're not a fan of those, I suggest waiting for the next one to release. The conclusion to Gia and Rush's story is only a short month away and I can't wait to find out how everything will play out. Even if I figured out the twist in this story early on, I'm still very intrigued about what will happen next. One thing is sure, the conclusion of Gia and Rush's love story will take us on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I have no doubt about that. Phenomenal work by the Keeland/Ward duo.


I give, Rebel Heir, by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, 4.5 flirty, sexy, page-turning stars!
