When two meddling grandmothers get
together who knows what the final outcome will beÖ
Vivian Desmond and Caesar Morrison are
celebrities in their own right, one a gifted and talented
singer and the other a professional athlete with ties to the
community. Having known each other since before they could
walk, the two seem more apt to meet on the battlefield
rather than a field filled with love.
When their grandmothers come to them
and ask for their help with the family owned business, the
two jump at the chance to help the women they both care
about. Neither knew that working in close quarters would
bring to light a deeper love than the heated rivalry that
has been the highlight of their relationship for years.
A love that should be simple doesnít
quite work out that way as Vivian holds dear to her heart a
secret she fears will ruin any chance she has at happily
ever after with the man who know holds her soul in the palm
of his hand.
Nothing but fireworks are possible when
two celebrities who know each other like the back of their
hands are thrown together in an explosive situation.
Rivalís Desire is a novel that had me wondering if
Vivian and Caesar would ever stop fighting long enough to
realize they were the perfect match. I will admit I tend to
not like relationships where the bickering overwhelms the
storyline and AlTonya Washington came this close to my
breaking point before things moved in a direction I could
really get into. After the fighting came to a close, I was
able to see what the grandmothers of these two talented
people saw. A couple who were matched not only by their
common background and being one of the best in their
respective fields but also how well they worked and played
Readers who enjoy contemporary romance
will find Rivalís Desire has a lot to offer
and though I tend to read racier novels one of the things I
found refreshing is the authorís ability to weave a sensual
tale with class.
