The Rivals by Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 13, 2020
The feud between Weston Lockwood and me started at the altar.
Only neither of us attended the wedding, and the nuptials happened decades before either of us was born.
Our grandfathers had been best friends and business partners, at least up until my grandfather’s wedding day—when his bride-to-be blurted out she couldn’t marry him because she was also in love with Weston‘s grandfather.
The two men spent years fighting over Grace Copeland, who also happened to be their third business partner. But in the end, neither man could steal half of her heart away from the other.
Eventually, they all went their separate ways. Our grandfathers married other women, and the two men became one of the biggest business rivals in history.
Our fathers continued the family tradition of feuding. And then Weston and I did, too.
For the most part, we kept as much distance as possible.
Until the day the woman who started the feud died—and unexpectedly left one of the most valuable hotels in the world to our grandfathers to share.
Now I’m stuck in a hotel with the man I was born to hate, trying to unravel the mess our families inherited.
As usual, it didn’t take long for us to be at each other’s throats.
Weston Lockwood was everything I hated: tall, smart, cocky, and too gorgeous for his own good. We were fire and ice.
But that shouldn’t be an issue. Our families were used to being at war. There was just one minor problem, though. Every time Weston and I fought, we somehow wound up in bed.
Sophia and Weston, you could say are a modern-day Hatfield’s and the McCoy’s, but instead of fighting of rivers and land their families are fighting over a hotel.
Sophia and Weston have history, besides their family hating each other it seems she really hates him. Being forced to work together until one’s family can be the main shareholder.
This story had fighting, angry sex, supposed hatred towards each there, but most of all under all the anger and fighting good chemistry. For the most part it was smooth sailing and little to no angst. I did very much enjoy the banter back and forth and I especially like where it led.
Overall a cute story with two characters I very much liked. I also really enjoyed the side characters.
