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.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Rebel Heir is the first book in The Rush Series Duet by the incredibly talented duo of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I am so thankful I discovered these women and their books. I love the books they write alone and together. I get so excited when they announce a new book and this is a new duet! I love cliffhangers and waiting to see what’s going to happen next, but I’ve never been more thankful than hearing I don’t have to wait too long! Vi and Penelope always have fresh stories with addicting characters. After every book I always say “Wow, I’ll never love another couple like this.” And then I read the next book and I love them just as much if not more! Rush is a total jerk. He inherited half of the Hamptons, but he’s not an upitty rich kid. He’s tough, tattooed, sexy and doesn’t care what people think of him. He loves him mom more than anything and he has morals and ethics and is fiercely loyal. Gia is a writer who has hit a major writing block. She gets a job working for Rush in a popular bar/restaurant and she sees past his snarky attitude. She’s mouthy, sexy, funny and isn’t going to take his crap. He loves and hates this about her. He doesn’t want to like her. He doesn’t do relationships, but there’s something about this woman that brings out his protective side and he wants more than just time between the sheets with her. He wants to talk to her, watch the sun set. And yes, even cuddle! What the what? Rush needs to decide if Gia is worth risking his heart. Once he jumps, he’s all in, but what happens when something threatens their happiness? Will Rush run away or back into Gia’s arms? I loved this story! I want more. Now. Rush is sexy, funny and a total jackass! I didn’t even mind the smoking. It added to his rebel sex appeal! Gia is hilarious. She’s sure of herself and stands her ground! I loved their witty banter and their crazy foreplay!


“Fuck you very much for the ride, Rush. Have a good fucking night.”


“What’s going on in that nutty head of yours this morning.”

“I’m just checking out the merchandise.”


“I wish you’d give that up, sweetheart,” Mom said.

“Me, too.” Gia tacked on. I looked between the two of them and growled.

“Just what I need. Two of you up my ass.”


Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Rebel Heir is the first book in the Rush duet by one of my favorite writing duos! I always know when I open an Vi and Penelope book that I will not want to put it down. And once again, I was right. I didn’t want to put it down. I not only wanted but needed this couple’s next heated exchange. The synopsis is perfection so I will make this fast.
Gia was in the Hamptons to write her first book. It might be a romance but that is not what she was looking for. She wasn’t a one-night stand or summer fling type of girl. She was an all or nothing type of woman. She also wasn’t a bartender until her roommate needed her to be one for just one night. Well…that one night turned in a new job with an sexy asshole as her new boss. Only she saw what most didn’t…his softer side.
Rush wanted her the moment he saw her behind his bar. Even if she was a terrible bartender. The way she stood up to him. She wasn’t intimidated by him like everyone else. He saw her. The real her. He wanted to know her. That was exactly what he was scared of. He didn’t fuck his employees. He never even wanted to until her. He knew he was fucked the minute he hired her. There was no way of avoiding her now.
Can Rush and Gia go the summer without dying of pent up sexual frustration? Who will be the one to break first? Will Gia go home at Summer’s end? Will she finish her book!?
Wow. I loved everything about this book. The characters. The story. The heat. The banter. The drama. Rush is so fucking hot. Seriously…though, he is crass but sweet. He is protective and alpha at the perfect moments. Gia is strong, flirty, and doesn’t take Rush’s shit. Together, their connection is beautiful, sexy, and complicated.
P.S. I want to lick the cover!!
“I never claimed to be normal. You don’t know the half of it, Shakespeare.”
“It’s like I want to protect you and corrupt you at the same time. It’s fucked-up.”
“You’re going to be the death of me, woman.”
