Summary:

Add to Goodreads

From New York Times Bestselling 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.

My Review:

Review also posted on Goodreads

OH. MY. GOD. You can’t leave me hanging like this. That cliffhanger makes me badly want to read Rebel Heart ASAP. I am curious how it’s going to play out. With Gia and Rush’s complicated situation in the last chapter, the sequel will be full of drama.

Romance author Gia Mirabelli spends the summer in Hamptons as she works on her debut novel. While finding her writing groove, she needs to find a regular job for her daily expenses and necessities. Timely her best friend asks her a favor to fill in her shift at The Heights (local bar) and she couldn’t refuse the opportunity. Gia is an inexperienced bartender and she constantly messed up with the orders. That almost got her in trouble when she meets the bar owner, Rush. He has a bad boy reputation. He’s sexily intimidating and quite an asshole to his employees. However, Gia wasn’t fazed by him and pushes back. Rush was undeniably attracted to her but he knows she’s into a long-term relationship, not a summer fling. Also, he doesn’t date his employees. How long he’s going to resist his feelings for her?

Gia and Rush are likable characters. Gia is sassy, humble and industrious. She has a pleasing personality and it’s impossible to hate her. How she remains bubbly and optimistic in handling tough situations was admirable. Despite of Rush giving her a rough time, she was patient to him and has brought out his good side. Rush was more than just a bad boy. He’s incredibly thoughtful, chivalrous and sweet. He’s very private and only lets in a few people that’s why others failed to see that side of him. Aside from that, he was a good son. He’s protective on his mom and loves her dearly. They have a wonderful mother and son relationship. By the way his mom was cool, carefree and philosophical. She’s nothing but supportive to him and as well as on Gia.

I love Gia and Rush’s chemistry and the angst made their romance build up nicely. So sexy, cute and intimate. It took these two a while before they started dating. I just freaking LOVE all their sweet moments! I haven’t gotten over with the ending. I want more and the waiting game begins. Gah. So excited for it. Hands down to Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward for writing this book.
