Title: The Rivalry
Author: Nikki Sloane
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: November 21, 2017
Fans of college football are going to love The Rivalry, and if you don't love football you may not quite get how or why people (families) get so rabid-dog-like crazy about certain match ups but you'll definitely find this novel entertaining. As someone who lives in SEC country and more notably LSU land, I'm very much aware of how crazy people can get when it comes to their teams (hello #bamahateweek ) and yet I've never seen it quite as bad as Kayla and her family (which made it that more interesting and entertaining).
Not only did I enjoy the story of Kayla and Jay and their unlikely pairing, the humor, and their struggle, I also enjoyed that this gave me a new type of read from Nikki Sloane. I've known her to have these passionate, tense stand offs between her couples and this was more humorous and light.
If your team has a bye week or you're just hungry for a college cheerleader/football player romance, you're going to enjoy this.
This tight end is at the top of his game.
He’s good with his hands, even better with his sexy mouth, and the best at making me forget my own name. His, ahem, stats are perfect.
But I can’t fall for him.
He might be everything I want, all rolled into a glorious package of gridiron god, but there’s one teeny-tiny problem. The vile, loathsome team I’ve spent my entire life hating—my beloved school’s arch-rival?
This guy is their star player.
