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.

**WARNING** This book is so much more than what you think! Do we have the bad boy with a rough exterior? A smart, sassy woman who is able to break through his exterior? Check and check. At first blush, I thought, I’ve read this type of story before. So while I always salivate at the opportunity to read anything by Keeland and Ward, I was beginning to think that this book might not grab me as much as previous ones. I WAS WRONG. SO VERY WRONG. There are SO MANY great lines, so many “Oh SHIT!” moments, and Rush only gets better with each page.
When reading a book, I usually gravitate toward one character or another, not usually both or them as a couple. But this time I found myself really liking each of the characters in their own right for a multitude of reasons. Rush is crass and pretty rough around the edges, but not in an unrealistic way. And I think that’s why I liked him so much; he felt real and not like an imaginary book guy. I could have sworn he was someone I met in college. And I lurve the name Rush.
Gia is quite a little blend of interesting…everything. At first I pegged her for an uptight, sassy pants. That stereotype got blown out of the water. She has a certain feistiness to her that still has an aura of innocence to it. A lady in the streets but a freak in the bed! Yep, that’s my new label for her.
Now the two of them together. They look like they should not mesh well, but these two get together in the same room and things just kind of explode – in laughter or the tearing off of clothes. And that’s one of the reasons I really enjoy them together so much. I like their individual layers, I love how Keeland and Ward made them so real, and I adore their realistic and awkward interactions.
As usual, there are some very interesting secondary character who help move the story along (Rush’s mom and Oak!!). These are the hidden gems in their stories. I also greatly appreciate that this is a book with writing that makes me not want to clean the house; I snuck in every spare moment to get to the next page. And the best part? This is a duet (READ: cliffhanger), but luckily we don’t have to wait long for the next installment.
