Great audio book, definitely worth a listen

I loved the whole story line of the rush series, once you’ve had one surprise and you think that’s the plot twist, you get hit by another as always with VI Keeland. First time I’ve listened to Maxine Mitchell narrate as am use to listening to Andi and Sebastian as a duet but I loved her voice both female and male brilliant!

WHAT A RUSH

Rush........ I loved him. In the first book he came across as the bad boy, the chain-smoking hottie with tattoos, then there was Gia....



Gia was the woman who changed his view of one night stands, the woman who began to grow on him the woman who began to change his outlook on relationships and then there was the cliffhanger. A cliffhanger I saw coming but I could not wait to read the next book to see how Rush would cope with this new information, and could he continue with his road to forever with Gia?

All through Rebel heart there is still an uncertainty with Rush what Gia revealed is a biggie and Rush just doesn't know if he can open himself up like that.

Rush is a BBF, he's swoon-worthy gone is the hard bossy demeanour Gia softens him but he has one heck of a dilemma to work through.

I loved this duet, the characters the brilliant balance of hotness, drama and suspense. I listened on Audio and these two narrators are brilliant, really bring the story to life.

Recommended duet. I am very happy with the outcome in book 2 and loved the suspense. told in first person dual pov and leads to hea.

Boring

Wrong wrong and predictable. I was looking forward to the second book after hearing the first one but I felt I just lost 6 valuable hours of my life. Do not buy it it's better to ended it at the cliffhanger from the first book and imagine the rest.

A Great Read

I have thoroughly enjoyed this duet. Strong leading characters have made this series as good as it has been.
I love both Vi Keeland's and Penelope Ward's books, but writing together they are awesome.

🌟🌟 5 Stars 🌟🌟

Oh I loved the ending to Gia & Rush's story even more than the beginning of it. They have many things to overcome and I was left with happy heart at the end of this story. The way Rush's adores Gia and her changes melted my heart and made me love him even more. It's book boyfriends like Rush that set the bar high for real life boyfriends LOL. This was a beautiful love story!

Thankfully I had them both and was able to go right into book 2. One other thing, I don't really know why this is 2 books. It's one story cut in half and sold as 2 when total it was only like 14 hours on audio. That works ok with ebooks but audiobooks are expensive and having to buy 2 to get a 14 hours story is hard to swallow no matter how amazing the story is.

The narration was PERFECT! Loved Sebastian York & Maxine Mitchel for this duet!!!

You have to love this Rebel!!

A great story with strong male and female leads. Fantastic conclusion to a duet audiobook. I haven't listened to a book with narrator Maxine in quite a while. I forgot how good she is with both female and male roles. Sebastian is great as a male lead, but I had trouble differentiating between the male roles.
This story brought out all the emotions from happy, sad, wanting to punch someone's face in (the name starts with an E) to a very steamy romantic love story. Thank you for not rushing the ending, like a lot of the books I have read. I just wish you would have put these two stories together. Because I haven't paid this much for any authors story. I Love Penelope and Vi stories, but I will not buy another of their stories again if they continue doing this. There are equally good authors out there that I and I am sure other readers agree that they can find fantastic stories.

FORTUNATELY, UNFORTUNATELY

I read both books in the series and both were awesome. Narrators were great. Fortunately, I found a great pair of authors. Unfortunately, book 2 was the last of the series😞.

Fortunately and unfortunately

As the love story continues, it also becomes more complicated. There are so many ups and downs in this story sometimes you feel like your on a rollercoaster of emotions. With the two narrator's, it gave listening to this book a more realistic feel that you are hearing each characters perspective on what is playing out. I enjoyed listening to both Rebel books.

Fortunately, unfortunately

Fortunately, this is the last book in this “Rush” series. Unfortunately, this was a little too predictable. Fortunately, jerks get paid back for their jerkish ways. Unfortunately, I wasted an afternoon listening to the resolution.

The family dynamic

I give it all to Rush who is truly a man. I come from a semi close minded family and to go through the motions of Rush and Gia’s decisions. It’s hard to put yourself into there shoes. I understood both sides but leant more toward misfortune events playing out as the book went on. Wonderful execution of words and realism describing taking a “sperm donors” baby as your own. It’s humbling to know there are Rush’s and Gia’s in our world.

Great story telling

I loved this story. Honestly listened to it in two days. It was funny, romantic and had enough heartbreak to keep me listening and wanting more. I would’ve enjoyed a bit more sex in it but that’s why I listen to these books. 😉

He can be my rebel any day!!!

sigh. swoony, dreamy sigh.

Rebel Heart is an angsty, soap opera like mess. Life really can be complicated. Or at least Gia's is!

Rush isn't sure where he stands in the new plot development drama.

I wanted to shake the shit out of him while stroking his head and burying it in my cleavage. 😉 I don't say I was innocent. That man is dead sexy in his appearance, his protectiveness, and that heart of freaking gold.

Its impossible not rank Rush as one of the best book boyfriends ever!

Sweet story!

Love the narrators and it's a sweet story. Penelope Ward does not disappoint in this series. As usual she makes you feel like you know the characters and brings you into the story.
