The Rivals by Vi Keeland * New Release * Review Tour * Must Read!

Posted July 17, 2020 by Yesi in Blog Tour, Book Reviews / 0 Comments




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.
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.
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.


Yesi’s Thoughts 
Well this was super fun read! And by fun I mean super sexy, angsty, and emotional. If you aren’t totally intrigued by the blurb, then I don’t know what to say, because I was SOLD on it immediately. Never mind that I love Vi Keeland and the sexy tales she spins, but seriously… feuding families, old money, and a hostile work environment… love it!
The Rivals brings it from the get go… the first encounter, the first hate bang, the first of many btw, and the first true show of actual emotion… in the swoony way. I fell head over heels in love with Weston Lockwood. Of course I’m a sucker for a rich, cocky, bad boy… but what I wasn’t prepared for was his true self… OH MY GAWWWWD… I wanted to just hug him and love him and make everything better for him.
What I love about Vi Keeland’s books is that while you are expecting one thing, she has the ability to totally change course,  and still make the story absolute perfection. While this book was not perfect and I had some issues here and there with Sophia, it did not affect how I felt in the end. Happy. And that’s what I want from books… an emotional roller coaster that leaves me satisfied and happy in the end. Another winner by this author… definitely recommend!
