Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes the first book in a new sexy duet. 

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.

Great story BUT

The story is beautiful and I love the characters, but I hate that authors are now just ending the story line in the middle. Novels are supposed to have a beginning, middle and ending. This book just stops! Need to wait for the next book coming out in May

A COMPELLING DUET WRITTEN BY A TALENTED DUO

Well this review is going to be short and sweet... not because I didn’t love it.. because I absolutely did, not because I wasn’t entertained by it.. because I so was and not because I thought the dual POV plotline lacked anything.. because the sizzles, the simmer, the banter, the build and the romantic feels were all there. No, it’s because book two is locked and loaded on my iPhone ready to be heard and, because there was such a nasty twist of a cliffhanger at the end of this book, I just can’t wait to hear how it’ll impact on lives and what the fallout will be on a hero and heroine who so deserve a HEA ending.

Worth a credit? Compelling.. and yes maybe a little predictable - but I really don’t care.. I loved it anyway.. and I loved the way Sebastian and Maxine brought the characters to life, set the tone, gave it sass and delivered all the emotional feels that made this a 5 star very creditworthy listen.

Unsure

Not completely sure how I feel about this one. Story started off great...then right as you get to the should be good part it took a nose dive. They could’ve allowed us a happy moment before but nope, totally robbed readers of that. Decided I was close enough to finished I’d listen to the rest even though I no longer cared for the storyline that fizzled out completely at this stage. Then after some boring chapters, came yet another twist that suddenly made it much more interesting, just as it ended on a cliff. I wanted to rate this book higher but the end did not live up to the beginning.

🌟🌟 5 Stars 🌟🌟

Gia and Rush might be my new favorite couple! These two banter better than anyone. I loved how when they met he tried to be bossy and a jerk and she wasn't having it and gave it right back. My favorite kind of heroine. I loved the direction this book went for Gia and loved Rush's reaction even more. These two are hot with amazing chemistry. I was hooked from chapter one. Loved the shocking (not really) outcome. Was 5 stars but....

I have to say if I had listened to this before book 2 came out I would have been outraged at the cliffy that was like a bomb went off and it ended! Thankfully I had them both and was able to go right into book 2. One other thing, I don't really know why this is 2 books. It's one story cut in half and sold as 2 when total it was only like 14 hours on audio. That works ok with ebooks but audiobooks are expensive and having to buy 2 to get a 14 hours story is hard to swallow no matter how amazing the story is.

The narration was FANTASTIC! Sebastian York was the perfect Rush. Maxine Mitch is also perfect for Gia! Loved the narration choice!

what!?

I guess I didn't realize that this story was continued in the next book. I was so into it I was shocked when she said. the end...for now...I don't know how I'm gonna wait til May to get the next installment! So good. And of course the narration was awesome with Sebastian York and Maxine Mitchell . They pull you in and don't let loose! Fantastic listen!

Really.

Here we go again. Another awesome book leaves you hanging. You greedy little authors. We will always enjoy your books without you leaving us in suspense. These authors need to get a grip and realize we can actually put them out of a job. So tired of these stupid cliffhangers. Well anywho. This book was definitely a good read. Sebastian York could read the newspaper and I would listen. Enjoyed the book.

OK

It was ok, not great. There's a turn towards the end, I wasn't expecting it, but the characters reacted in such an unrealistic way that it forced me to stop listening. I can't stand the way these characters were written to respond.

Are these adults or ten year olds?

This story reads like a teenage fanfic. These grown adults are snapping and pouting at each other back and forth like fourteen year old kids. The main guy is supposed to have a reputation in being a "rebel" but I'm not seeing it at all. Is it because he has tatts? How does one get such a rep when all they do is good things? The main girl is annoying and talks way too much. I got to chapter 10 and put it down. I may pick it up later if I have nothing better to do. Voice acting is okay.

Unbelievably predictable....

Very disappointed with how this book went. The romance build up was ok but the cliffhanger was annoying since most listeners will see easily predict what direction the drama will take early on in the book. The book ends essentially at the mid-point of the overall story so if one cares to continue with it you have to buy the second book. At this point not sure I will bother. I also didn’t love Maxine Mitchell’s performance as Gia so that didn’t help the story. Sebastian York was great however.

Good story

Enjoyed this book, though don’t think it matched up to the fantastic cover. Whoever created that is a genius as I bet loads of people buy the book based on that cover and the model alone.

Maxine Mitchell wasn’t the best. Don’t know why she’s used as a narrator so often as she just sounds angsty and distracts from the story. Sebastian York was good but he doesn’t have as many chapters.

Angsty, emotional, great.

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

Story: 5 Stars

Narration: 5 Stars

I thoroughly enjoyed Rebel Heir. Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward make such and amazing team. Quirky humour and a great story-line are pretty much guaranteed with these two and this Rebel Heir more than developed. I really loved the passing reference to another of their books.

This story really takes off when Gia starts working at Rush’s bar. They clash and they dance around each other. The chemistry zaps off of the page, or in my case, out of the speakers.

Rush is an alpha male and can be a bit of an ass, this causes tension between he and Gia.

Gia is a sweet, but sassy character and she takes none of Rush’s crap, despite her upset at some of Rush’s behaviour.

This is an angsty, sexy, emotional romance that has it all.

Please don’t be put off by the fact that this book does end on a cliffhanger, (I know how people feel about those.) The good news is that you can immediately read/ listen to the second book in this duet so you don’t have to wait.

Rebel Heir was narrated by Maxine Mitchell, Sebastian York. They are both fantastic narrators and really do this book justice. The voices suit the characters and the acting was exceptional which really brought the story to life.

The more intimate scenes were well dealt with (I have listened to books where they are uncomfortable sounding or overdone) the sensual scenes in this book flowed along with the story and felt like a natural progression.

4.5 Narration Perfection Stars

Gia is an author……..well, she’s bagged herself a book deal, her first book, the thing is, she hasn’t written it yet!

She decides to go away for the summer to get some inspiration and her creative juices flowing, and gets a nice little house to rent on the beach, a friend of hers works at the fancy bar/restaurant so she has company too…..perfect!

Gia’s friend calls her one evening to ask her to cover for her behind the bar as she has a family emergency, even though she doesnt have that much experience, she agrees, i mean how difficult can it be?

The answer to this comes quickly when people start ordering cocktails she has never heard of, charging customers wrong, and basically having a pretty crappy time.

What is making this worse is that there is a man watching her from the other side of the bar, he doesn’t fit in with the rest of the posh people here, he has a black leather jacket and jeans on, she asks him what he wants to drink, and promptly charges him wrong…..this wouldn’t be a problem, but it turns out to be the boss, oh and he owns the place, his name….Rush!

Rush……ahh Rush 😍

Most people that work at the restaurant think he is a bit of a dick, and he does come across that way, but Gia doesn’t take any crap from anyone and gives as good as she gets, which seems to please Rush.

An unlikely friendship forms between them both and then romance, but a big unforeseen spanner gets thrown in the works, and things may not turn out how they both hope.

This ends in a cliffhanger, but don’t worry, you won’t have to wait long, as book 2 comes out in a few weeks

🎧🎧 Narrated by the always sexy voiced Sebastian York #SebYesPlease and the totally gorgeous Maxine Mitchell.
They will set your earphones on fire with their sexual chemistry and witty one liners.

Enjoy the Rush,

V Nerd

A Real Rush!!

I'm in real need of a Rush of my own!! Why are they always in books?
I loved this story and eagerly await the second book in the set to be released.
Another good read from the Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward partnership.
Brilliantly performed by Maxine Mitchell and Sebastian York.

Cheeky banter!

I love the cheeked banter between the two characters in this book. I was sucked in at chapter 1. The good natured/flirty teasing remarks between the two was very believable and at times even made me laugh out loud. This was a very ‘sexy’ novel that had me pre purchasing the writers others novels between chapter!

Great story

I loved the twists in this story which set it apart from the typical guess what’s coming next.

The only bit that was a bit weird was the male voice from the female narrator but other than that both narrators were great.

Just downloaded the second book to hear what happens next.

overall good

Narrator doing both male and female voices is off-putting, specially when a supposedly attractive man sounds like a woman. Story line a little predictable but love the cliffhanger moment. Now I definitely have to buy the next title.

When its just getting exciting, it suddenly finishes. Come on audible, you cant tell half a story. I cant even see where the next one is in the pipeline.
