ARC Review: Rebel Heart by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Rebel Heart is the second book in the Rush Series by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, and needs to be read after Rebel Heir. This is the conclusion to Rush and Gia’s story, so make sure that you read these in order. As soon as I had finished Rebel Heir, I was ready for more of these characters. I absolutely loved them and Rebel Heart was everything I had hoped it would be and more. While I have loved all of Vi and Penelope’s solo releases and co-written books Rush and Gia are at the top of my favorites list. 

Gia had been in the Hamptons trying to finish her book when helping a friend out turned into a summer job and the start of something between her and her boss Rush. But things quickly get more complicated than either of them expected. Rebel Heart picks up after the events of Rebel Heir, so we aren’t left hanging for long to see how things turn out. 

Things weren’t easy for Rush or Gia, and I honestly felt so much for both of them. Their situation was complicated and confusing, and I can’t imagine what it would be like to be in either of their shoes. The one thing that was completely obvious here though was that there was a genuine connection and feelings here that neither of them could deny. It was never a matter of feelings between them, and I loved that that was never in question. Circumstances were one thing, but their feelings were always genuine and strong. The chemistry between them was off the charts and I just couldn’t get enough of Gia and Rush and their story. 

Overall, this book was a fantastic ending to an amazing duet. I couldn’t put it down, and I loved the characters. Gia and Rush’s story was one that I was invested in from from the very start of Rebel Heir and honestly I never wanted it to be over. I have loved everything about this duet and while I have loved all of Vi and Penelope’s books, these two have a very special place in my heart. There was just something special and unique about these two and I won’t ever forget them. These books will definitely be ones that I reread in the future and I highly recommend them. Vi and Penelope always manage to bring depth and emotion as well as steam their books and I am a fan for life. This series is my favorite of theirs to date, and they just get better with each book they write. Rebel Heir and Rebel Heart are must reads!

Feature and Giveaway: Fight Twice for Me by C.C. Wylde

The last place I wanted to be is at my ex’s MMA club, especially since I’ve sworn off fighters.

But I never anticipated meeting the De La Cruz twins. And damn, is there anyone who could resist a chance at a night of mind-blowing sex with them? With their tattoos, muscles, and the fact that there’s two. Besides, I’m getting the hell out of Vegas as soon as I’m done with college in a few weeks, so why not indulge until then?

It felt good to forget the rules…until I woke up to find out they were my new stepbrothers.

It’s about to get complicated.

Feature and Giveaway: Innocent Target by Katie Reus

From USA Today bestselling author Katie Reus comes the next story in the explosive Redemption Harbor series where sparks fly and so do bullets…

He wasn’t supposed to fall for her…

She was a target. A contract that came across his desk by mistake. Axel was simply going to warn her that she was in danger and get out. Then he got a taste of her and fell hard. But they’re from two different worlds. Not only is she innocent, she’s out of his league. He should keep his distance, but he can’t. Not when someone wants her dead. Now he’s driven to protect her, to keep her safe.

What happens when she discovers who he really is?

Hadley moved to Redemption Harbor for vet school and to be closer to her new family. Now that her billionaire father knows about her existence, her life has changed drastically. She just never imagined that she might be targeted because of her family. And she definitely never imagined she would fall for the one man she should never want. A man who kills for a living. A man who’s obsessed with her. A man who will do anything to protect her from the danger lurking in the shadows.

ARC Review: Allure by CA Harms

Allure is the first book in the Brooklet Dreams series by CA Harms. This is a second generation spin-off of her Southern Boys series, featuring kids of our favorite couples and I honestly couldn’t wait to read this when I found out about it. It was great to see some of my favorite characters again and see the next generation of their families and how things had turned out. CA Harms brought everything that I had loved from that series and more here, and I fell for Rhett right along with AJ. 

Rhett thought that he had found his forever when he was just a boy. His best friend and first everything Harley was supposed to be there with him every step of the way, but when she moved away and didn’t return he was left broken hearted and waiting for her to come back. But when he saw that she had moved on, he opened himself up again and met AJ. Things soon more between them as he found himself happier than ever and not only the old Rhett, but the best version of himself possible. But just as his future is beginning to take shape once again, his past returns and everything changes once again. 

I loved Rhett so much. He was sweet and kind, sexy and thoughtful. He was such a great character and you couldn’t help but fall in love with him. It was easy to see how irresistible he would be for both AJ and Harley. He is definitely a worthy book boyfriend and the kind of hero that makes readers love romance. I will admit that I am always a fan of second chance romances and at first I really wanted Rhett to wind up with Harley. But all that changed as soon as we started getting to know AJ. She was an amazing heroine. Sweet and sassy, she wasn’t afraid to put Rhett in his place and make him work for it. But she was so easy to relate to and I found her vulnerabilities to be ones that a lot of readers will be able to relate to. She really cared for Rhett, but she was also really scared about having her heart broken and not being enough to overcome what Rhett had once had with Harley. I loved that she didn’t let that stop her from taking the risk though. She put herself out there and the chemistry and connection between her and Rhett was amazing to read about. 

Overall, I really enjoyed this story and the characters. I felt like things turned out exactly as they were meant to. Not only was this a great love story, but it was a great book about friendship and family as well. CA Harms excels at writing heartfelt and emotional stories that seem so genuine and believable, because the characters are unique and easy to relate to. Allure was a great start to the Brooklet Dreams series and will appeal to those that are already fans of CA Harms, as well as those that are new to her. I can’t wait to read more in this series as well as whatever else she writes in the future.
