The Rivalry

by Nikki Sloane

A well-constructed, sweet but steamy read.

The crux of the issue was that Kayla was a cheerleader for her college football team and Jay was the star player…unfortunately as well suited as you may think that would make them, there was one issue…it wasn’t the same team, heck it wasn’t even the same college!!! He was in Michigan and she was hundreds of miles away in Ohio and there was certainly no love lost between either of the establishments, teams or fans but would that mean the opportunity of love would be lost on Kayla and Jay?

A chance meeting at a wedding brought the two of them together and they hit it off immediately, the banter between them was so engaging that I think it was my favourite part of the book. But there was a spanner read to be dropped into what had the potential to be an awesome relationship and as petty as it may have appeared to those not connected, the angst that it towed along behind it was relentless.

Yes, they were super sexy together and the author didn’t skimp on her descriptions of the time they spent together but the book was so much more than a romp, this pair had chemistry!

I found myself slightly irked with Kayla every now and again, she was hard work and took the whole rivalry thing a little too far at times, (in my opinion) in fact I was beginning to think that she was darn lucky that Jay thought she was worth the fight because had I been him, I don’t know that I would have been quite so accommodating.

Jay was a great guy, I mean it, I really liked him, so much so that when Kayla was being a diva, I just wanted to reach into the book and give him a shake, but this was a guy that knew his own mind and he had made his decision, he wanted her no matter what and he was willing to do whatever it took to get her. Darn it he was nothing if not determined!!

Highly recommended.
