“Rush is another heart-melting hero.”
~ Under the Covers

The conclusion of Rush and Gia’s story.  Well, I’ll tell you if you read the first installment in this duet I know you won’t want to miss reading this.  Not only because the first ended in a cliffhanger, but because I’m happy with how the authors resolved big problem that comes between our main couple.

REBEL HEART is packed full of angst, but that is exactly what I knew was coming.  If anything, I think it’s less than I was expecting to get.  The big conflict could’ve been done in a tacky and awful way and I think it’s handled in the best way possible.  So I was happy with that.

Overall, I still don’t think this story (both combined) is a favorite of mine by these authors.  But I enjoyed the second book just as much as the first.  While I was consumed with it and invested, I still couldn’t put it down.

There’s always a character that stands out more than the other and that is Rush for me in this series.  While I find Gia oftentimes immature, I can’t find fault with Rush.  His life hasn’t been easy and even in love it couldn’t be.  And he handled it like a hero you’ll want to fall in love with.  I’m not sure how these ladies do it time and time again, but Rush is another heart-melting hero.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Thanks for the review. I was so Gaaahh! at the end of REBEL HEIR that I was very happy that they had close release dates. I completely adored Rush by the end of HEIR, but Sherrilyn Kenyon has me trained to love the emotionally bruised hero.
