One of my very favourite writing duos is Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward and I think this is one of their best books to date. ‘Rebel Heir’ is addictive. While it was a bit different than other books by this duo, it has their signature romance, banter, and sexual tension with characters you can’t help but fall in love with. Rush and Gia are just a refreshing twist on the normal star crossed lovers we find in modern romance.
Even though I really enjoyed the sexual tension between Rush and Gia, what was more fun was how they really got to know each other before they got together So there wasn’t the usual insta-love.
Rush had a sinfully dirty mouth and was plenty sexy bad boy. So even though I love every character these authors give us but I have to say Rush and Gia are up there amongst my favourites, their chemistry is sizzling and the connection they share is so special.
Even though I kinda picked the cliffhanger, I had hoped I was wrong!!
Gia is a writer who won her first publishing deal based off the 3x chapter submitted in a contest. Spending most of her advance on acomodation in the Hamptons to write her novel, Gia finds herself needing to work to maintain her lifestyle & as a distraction to her sudden writer's block.
Rush is the illegitamate son of a wealthy man, whom never wanted to acknowlege his existance. An unlikely heir thanks to his paternal grand father, & now also Gia's boss & landlord.
Their chemistry is palpable, they are each strong characters on their own but so much better together.
I loved this book even though Gia's writting career kinda fades into the background. Looking forward to reading the conclusion of their story
What a rollercoaster! I was introduced to this book as the May book for my book club. And oh my god, it was a good one. I hadn't previously read anything by either author but they are definitely going to be one of my new go to's. This book was phenomenal. Gia was the perfect unassuming lead and Rush (drool worthy) was someone you wanted to be the perfect man, but obviously had flaws. Their first meeting was perfect, and the witty banter made me giggle. A must read if you love a good romance, and the twist is amazing. Hanging out for the next one!!!
This duo, Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward write a great yarn, their sense of humour and fun, together with an underlying mystery keep you glued to their books. The hero is yummy and sometimes quirky and the heroine is just as alluring. Love their books together and separately. Also really enjoyed Book2....Rebel Heart. Also loved CockyBastard, the duo really captured the Aussie humour and vernacular....loved the pet goat. ( as an Aussie it was refreshing to be able to relate)
I absolutely adored Rush & Gia's story and can't wait to read more. I read it in one night. Rebel Heir sucked me in from the first chapter and didn't let go. The chemistry between the pair was believable and i couldn't get enough. Thankyou Vi Keeland, for another fantastic read xo
Highlight of my weekend reading this book! Read from cover to cover in one sitting. Not so happy I’ve got over a month to wait before the next book in the series is released. I’m so invested in the story I just need to know what happens right this instance!
Absolutely loved this made me cry it made me laugh and I could not put it down then to discover that I have to wait two weeks to read the next book and I’m hanging badly for it but it was one of the best books I have read in months
Rebel Heir by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward is the first book in their brand new, co-written Rush Series Duet . Told in dual POV between Rush and Gia - this book is yet another amazing, engaging, and fabulous story from two of my favorite authors.
Gia is an aspiring author with a contract waiting to be fulfilled. After winning a competition for the first three chapters of a book she rents a summer share in the Hamptons, spending her advance from the publishers, and hopes to be inspired to finish the story. Covering as bartender at a local bar called The Heights for her friend and roommate who has a family emergency she rapidly learns that she is not cut out for bartending and that her friends boss is a jerk.
Rush is beyond annoyed with this random woman working at his bar, messing up drink orders, back-talking the customers and charging wrong prices. Never mind he didn't even hire her. Poised to fire her AND her friend he ends up giving her a job there as a hostess and giving her a ride home that night. The draw to be around Gia is something he doesn't understand and apparently cannot fight.
The rapid friendship between Rush and Gia is natural and sincere and their attraction to each other is palpable. The progression towards more is heartwarming, despite the hiccup along the way. But the cliffhanger ending could potentially be a deal-breaker for Rush. We will find out in Rebel Heart which releases on May 22, 2018. Enjoy!
