How to walk away from a man you fall in love with at the end of a summer:
…I’ll let you know when I figure it out.
Rebel Heir is the second book in the Rush Series Duet. Book One, Rebel Heir, is available for sale now.
Before I jump into this review, I need to make it clear that you need to read Rebel Heir in order to fully enjoy and understand what is going on. Okay, now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about how we picked up with the cliffhanger in book one. ONE BIG EXPLETIVE comes to mind…you know the one that starts with F and rhymes with duck? Yeah? Then you get that Rebel Heart starts with a loud and resounding BANG!
So what makes this book so explosive? The writing and the journey these characters take is rife with emotions, difficult decisions, uncomfortable situations, and forcing individuals to step out of their comfort zone. There is a lot of ugly in life, a lot of hate too. However, one of the most poetic lines in the book (I’ll paraphrase so I won’t spoil the beauty of the story for anyone) is when a pivotal question is asked: “Do you love more than you hate?”
Profound, right? Which makes me think of the central theme in this book…it’s easy to love and be happy when the going is easy. The truth of a situation and character is what happens when it gets tough. What type of commitment are you willing to make to another person – friend, family member, lover when the situation asks you to love more than hate, when you need to really examine who you are as a person, and what path you want to take in life.
Keeland and Ward wrap up this story very beautifully, never skimping on character development, angst, or the feels. Their writing is always of the highest caliber, which is why we love them so much (me included!!).
I strongly recommend grabbing both books in the duet and enjoying the hell out of them both! P.S. You’re going to love Rush…’cause, um, YUM!

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.
