REVIEW – REBEL HEART (Rush Series Duet, #2) by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward


From New York Times Bestselling authors Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, comes the second book in a new, sexy duet. A full summer in a beach house became a lot more interesting when I met my new boss. More interesting…and complicated.

OMG!!! Be still my heart…

Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland are going to be responsible for some really STRONG heart palpitations, my poor ticker can hardly take it. Rush and Gia were such an amazing couple; never predictable and their chemistry, was super hot, off the charts.



Rush being a Rebel through and through, had a hard time accepting the situation surrounding Gia. On one side he could hardly keep away from her, but on the other, thinking about the cards they’ve been dealt with, made his head doubt that he could ever be the man she needs him to be.

Rush kept struggling, not knowing how to deal with the messed up situation, and even though the only thing he is sure of is the fierce love he feels for Gia, he’s not sure there could be a future with them.

For Gia the hardest part was having to see Rush every day, protecting her, spoiling her, yet not being able to be with her. Her love and craving for Rush are unlike anything she’s ever felt before and it was killing her to have to give him space to sort things out.

As these two lovers figure out their future, us readers go on a crazy journey, packed with a lot of angst and uncertainty. Luckily for us, these two authors come through with one amazing conclusion to this highly gratifying read.

Book one and two were both equally amazing. I always love it when Penelope and Vi write books together, and this duet makes the perfect summer, romance read. Simply fantastic!

Get ready for a ton of angst and pulse-quickening steam in this conclusion to the ”Rush Series Duet”. Keeland and Ward have yet again managed to write another fabulous story that is sure to keep their readers engrossed until the very end! I’ve loved so many of their charismatic Heroes and Rush is definitely being added to the list!

Just when Rush and Gia have fallen head over heels in love they are thrown an unexpected curveball that complicates their new relationship, but they soon realize that their feelings are too strong to walk away from each other. Then, an even bigger surprise is revealed and this one is devastating and a tough pill for Rush to swallow. It ends up developing into a huge rift between Rush and Gia. No matter how upsetting the news is, the two are still madly in love and neither time nor distance can diminish their feelings.

Their relationship will be put to the test in more ways than one which is what I attribute the overabundance of angst to in this story! But if you have read any of the books these two authors have written then you know that in the end, you will not be disappointed!

Here are my overall ratings

Hero: 4.5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4
Angst: 5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
