Review: The Rivalry by Nikki Sloane


She won’t be able to resist this TIGHT END.
The Rivalry by Nikki Sloane IS AVAILABLE NOW!!

“Rivals can’t possibly fall in love. The Rivalry is a fun, charming, and romantic tale that proves they most certainly can.” New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr








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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 STARS!
I don’t always read sports romance, but when I do it’s because one of my very favorite authors wrote it! As I’m not a sports fan in real life, I don’t generally gravitate towards them unless I already know the author, it comes highly recommended or I just can’t resist the blurb. Normally when the sports aspect of the story is tied so closely to the relationship, I have a hard time getting into it. That wasn’t the case with The Rivalry. Maybe it was because it was a sort of enemies to lovers kind of thing that had me super intrigued, or maybe it’s just because it was so well written I couldn’t help myself but find an appreciation for the sport. By the way, I was totally cheering for Blue. It wasn’t Blindfold Club level hot, but the story has an abundance of fun and there was still plenty of steam fogging up my Kindle.

Nikki Sloane landed in graphic design after her careers as a waitress, a screenwriter, and a ballroom dance instructor fell through. For eight years she worked for a design firm in that extremely tall, black, and tiered building in Chicago that went through an unfortunate name change during her time there. Now she lives in Kentucky and manages a team of graphic artists. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America, is married with two sons, writes dirty books, and couldn’t be any happier.
