Review by Lisa Kane

Heathcliff “Rush” Rushmore is nuts about Gia. In the time that she’s worked at The Heights she’s turned his world upside down. Poor Rush. If he thinks his life is crazy right now, just wait.

Gia is struggling to deal with the fact that life is throwing her all kinds of curve balls. Her rock, Rush-well how can she tell him what she’s just discovered? He will be so hurt and betrayed. But how can she not tell him?

Every time I would look into Rush’s trusting eyes, a piece of me would slowly die from the guilt. 

There are a couple of major plotlines going on. Things that could spoil this whole duet. So this is one of those reviews that is all over the place, trying not to indulge any secrets.

When it all goes kaboom, and I knew it would, I had no problem feeling the pain that drowned both Rush and Gia. Rush is so tortured and Gia is so determined to handle things on her own.

I still loved her so much. That never changed for one second. I just didn’t’ know how to handle what I was feeling, couldn’t articulate my pain. 

Can you tell me you want to be with me? That you can accept the hand we’ve been dealt and move on?”

Rush has abandonment issues, his illegitimacy and the piece of crap sperm donor who has made his life hell are just throwing gasoline into this bonfire. Not to mention the sheer loathing he has for his philandering brother Elliott-that guy is truly pond scum.

In order to move on, you have to stop looking back. 

Rebel Heart is a full of messy drama and angst. There are truly some despicable characters in this story-namely Edward, Rush’s father and Elliot his brother. I can only hope that their devious business deals land them in jail. Their hearts are black and there have been too many disgusting actions to ever warrant any kind of redemption for either one of them. It’s hard to imagine Rush sharing any of that polluted DNA.

“There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you, sweetheart.”

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.
