Do not read the spoiler if you intend to read the book because my spoiler is the revelation that is made towards the end of the book, which would totally spoil the book for you.

(view spoiler) I guess Book 2 will clarify it all.

Although the cover is awesome (yummy), this issue is one of my pet peeves so I do not want to read this book.

P.S. Thank you to my friend TheresaDK

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward pair up once again to produce a fun, witty and sexy novel that will leave you hungry for more.

While failing miserably to help her friend, aspiring author Gia Mirabelli is still fast on her feet and ends up employed at The Heights, an upscale restaurant/bar in the Hamptons. She only intended to supplement her income during the summer. She needs to write her novel without distractions, especially not lying ones like the previous guy

5 'Damn you Vi & Penelope' Stars

Consistently I am blown away by Vi and Penelopes collaborations. So much so that I am shocked that I continue to be surprised by this, mainly due to the fact that I love both authors work equally, but for some reason when they work together, the outcome seems to be even more incredible.

This is the first by this duo that is not a stand alone, I repeat not a stand alone and boy was I left wanting the next book more than anything.

This is the story of Gia and Rush

Ward and Keeland once again killed it with their signature writing style. With lots of comedy and a ton of angst thrown in, Rebel Heir will leave you breathless!

Rebel Heir follows Gia and Rush. It’s summer in The Hamptons. Gia finds herself behind the bar covering for her friend when she meets Rush, owner of the bar, resident jerk, and al around bad boy. Rush doesn’t get involved with employees and Gia has to focus on her day job. Their connection is like nothing they’ve experienced before and

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 and I'm sure the sequel will be eventful and packed with drama. Gia and Rush are both likable as an individual and as a couple. I love their chemistry and the angst made their romance build up nicely. So sexy, cute and intimate. I just freaking LOVE it!

Kitap çok güzel başladı. Karakterleri sevdim. Rush'a da bayıldım. Uzun zamandır bir ana erkek karakteri baştan böyle sevmemiştim.

Kitabın yarısına kadar süper ilerledi bence. Ardından olanları pek bu kitaba oturtamadım ben ya... Hani bu yazarların huyudur, illa bir zirve olay koyup tüm akışı değiştirir, tüm konuyu başka yöne çekerler. Bunda da onu yapmışlar yine.

Two of my favorite authors; Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward get together again to bring us fans the perfect summer read.

Set in the Hamptons this delicious and sexy story had me feeling as if I was in the middle of a sexy, summer romance. These two authors have the talent to make you feel as if you are actually part of the story. You could almost feel the sand on your toes, hear the beach waves and feel the delicious kisses between Rush and Gia.

Snarkily delicious…

Ahh… Laughter. I love the cheekiness and humour that these authors bring to their characters and Rush and Gia seemed to have an extra dose. Love, drama, laughter – yup, it’s an instant click for me when I see these two names pop up under ‘coming soon’…

I am fluent in sarcasm so recognize and appreciate those who have mastered the art. The saucy one-liners, and extra zing to their banter, meant Rush and Gia were experts. They were fun. As they played cat and mouse with their att

As fas as author collaborations go, Vi & Penelope just do it so well together and never cease to amaze me with what they come up with when two minds work so cohesively to bring stories like this to their readers.

Okay so we have Gia. She has dreams of being a writer and after a successful pitch to a publisher she is now working towards a deadline to write a novel. In an effort to do this she has moved to the beach to maybe draw inspiration from her environment and give her mind some creative

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I feel the need to sigh in satisfaction and scream in frustration, all at the same time. In other words, Rebel Heir is a fantastic addition to Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland’s catalog of amazing books.

I experienced so many differing emotions while reading this story, which is only possible when I care deeply about the characters. And if these authors are experts at anything, it’s crafting women that I want to be my best friends, and men that are so deliciously decadent on the outside and soft and

I was really digging this at first but by around 67% it started to go down hill...and then it crashed and burned. I had a few thoughts about who Harlan could be when Gia first spoke about him, and I’m so disappointed to say I was right. I wish I would have searched it out because I would have stopped right then. Anyway, this is not my jam, quite honestly the whole second half of the book just didn’t feel right, it went from over the top in one direction to the complete other side of the

"Sometimes you don't realize what you're missing until you see it right in front of you."

#Vinelope is my favorite writing duo. I've made no secret about that love and once again, they've showcased it perfectly as to why. Their ability to write a Hero that can bring any woman to her knees is very evident. We get a very swoony man in Rush that has just enough flaws to make him relatable, and just enough charisma and swag to make him dreamy. But this time, their
I’ve probably been reading too many books by Vi Keeland lately, because I notice a lot of overlap in her writing – both in terms of plot and characters. I guess I don’t mind too much, since half the appeal is in the predictability, but I seem to be giving 3 or 3.5 stars most of the time. Even then, I do enjoy majority of her books simply because they’re fun to read, and I think she works well with Penelope Ward – the writing is pretty seamless here and it’s hard to tell Rebel Heir was a collabor ...more
