The Rivalry by Nikki Sloane: 4,5 stars Review

Exactly what I needed to read + covergasm!!!

Synopsis

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.

Review

4,5 stars !

It was a “moody buy”.  I was featuring my favorite sportsromance couples on the blog when Michelle Chen recommended this one.

It was EXACTLY what I needed to read!

 

This book was fun, sexy, spunky, entertaining and I read it in two days. Yes I had to work to feed my family and you know… buy books 😉.

Rivalry is a sportsromance happening at college.
You have feisty cheerleader Kayla. She is smart, spunky and makes guys cry when she speaks about her passion: football.
She is a Buckeye. She was raised and bred by parents enamored with that football team.
Mind you she was born in a stadium so it’s no wonder she caught the virus.

When she meets Jay at her best friend’s wedding the attraction is immediate. They begin the seduction dance with Kayla never uttering one word about football as she promised Marcy. No football talk at her wedding.

Jay is a star player at Michigan college and the biggest rival to Kayla’s university team. There is an eternal feud between these teams.

When Kayla realizes Jay is the enemy it’s a cold shower. He was so sexy and fun and interesting and… But dating him is inconceivable! Bad, bad Kayla. Must not think about Jay! Traitor!

Jay is not a star player for nothing. To be at that level you must be tenacious and loving the challenge.
So Jay will go after Kayla and he aims to win.

Reading Kayla resisting Jay was epic. She was all offended and reluctant just to melt under his kisses. He must be a hell of a kisser as each time it was like brainwash.
Honestly if Jay kissed like he looks on the cover he should have come with a warning!!!!!! COVERGASM!!!!

 

I loved Kayla. She is tiny but ready to fight with grown male Michigan fans. She never doubted she could beat these hunks!
I kept featuring a little kitten back arched growling and meowing at huge attack dogs. Hilarious! And sweet.

 

Jay was the strong, calm and sexy counterpart. Less bark than Kayla but all winning tongue… herm I mean moves, winning moves *there was tongue action too if you are wondering*.

It was perfectly executed you get everything you can expect for the genre and I was left feeling happy and energized.

Recommend it? Oh yes!

Thank you for the rec Michelle!
