The Review: 
So, so good! After the first book left off with one heck of a cliffy, I have been patiently waiting to get my hands on the second book to this duet. I HAD to see if my suspicions were right and I HAD to know what would become of Gia and Rush, when the truth came out. I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed. These two authors always bring the angsts and the tummy flutters and they always tell a great story.

Picking up right where book one left off, we don’t have to wait long to learn the secrets and when the truth is revealed, Gia is understandably upset ... and so is Rush. I felt so bad for Rush. He had a huge decision to make. He had to figure out if he could have the life with Gia he so desperately wanted and if he could be the man and father he wanted to be. But what I loved most is that even though he took time to decide, even though he left Gia hanging for a while, wondering if he would be hers in the end, he ALWAYS made sure Gia was okay. He protected her, looked after her and loved her while he thought things through. Rush was such a sweetheart. He was giving and loyal and kind and how he shared blood with his bio father and brother, I’ll never know because those two were losers!

Gia faltered a little in this book. I understood her waiting around, because Rush was definitely worth waiting for, but she also thought she deserved less than she did. None of it was her fault. I kind of wanted her to stand up for herself and feel worthy of all she was really worth, but it all worked out for the best.

I enjoyed how the authors gave Rush time to figure things out. The situation was huge and there was more than lust or even love to think about. They both needed to think about the baby first ... and they did.

I honestly couldn’t see how this book would end where everyone would get what they wanted. The situation was so complex, but in true Vi and Penelope fashion, they gave us the happily ever after we craved and gave us a fantastic story and a bit of angsts along the way. Oh and they also gave us some yummy sexy times, which is always fun!

Great read and one I look forward to reading again in the near future!

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.
