Two teams, one huge rivalry.
When Kayla and Jay meet at a mutual friend’s wedding they have no idea what’s in store for them but they’re about to find out when they realise they’re from two opposite places with a massive rivalry, will they be able to overcome this or will things forever be doomed between the two?
Collage Sports Romance’ are my absolute favourite kind of read. I always have high expectations for them and hope to god that they meet them but with Nikki Sloane, there’s never a worry. So when I heard she was doing a sports romance, a collage one at that I was super excited and intrigued to see where she would take this story and to say I thoroughly enjoyed it would be an understatement. This book was incredible. The storyline was spot on and showcased Nikki’s incredible talent.
The teams rivalries were insane and intense and you could feel it all. The cheerleading, the football everything was described so perfectly you actually felt like you were there witnessing it all. Then all the emotions get thrown at you throughout the whole book. One minute you’re happy, the next you’re sad and then you find yourself laughing and that, that’s one of the things that show how amazing a book is. A book that can pull more than one emotion from you is a sure hit in my book.
I’ve been a huge fan of Nikki’s books for a while now and I’m always eager to see what she comes up with next, The Rivalry was definitely, for me, one of my favourite reads of 2017. The characters will be stuck with me, I’ll be thinking about Jay and Kayla’s story for a while, I can just feel it. Kudos to Nikki for another incredible book, can’t wait to read more from her in the future. I only wish I could give this one a lot more than a 5 start relating because damn, it deserves it.
I have to say from the outset that I have little or no prior knowledge of American football or indeed Cheerleading and this made some of the narrative, particularly at the beginning, challenging to comprehend....that being said I am aware of the loyalty displayed by some die hard sports fans and Kayla lives and breathes her family’s alma mater football team.....both Jay and Kayla take turns to tell their version of events which provides not only an insight into their true feelings for each other but also an added layer of humour to the story...
Kayla is as stubborn as they come and any chance of a relationship between the two main characters seems destined to fail despite the seriously hot chemistry between them....two star crossed sports lovers supported by a ‘team’ of fascinating secondary characters... this was an original, entertaining and engaging read..... This book was reviewed for Summer's Eve Reads...
The Jason Witten comparison to Jay helped make a good visual too, younger version of course. Both tight ends and I can imagine how good he looked. I can relate to Kayla on the sports thing and her fanatic ways. Funny thing unbeknownst to them they hit it off not knowing their schools are arch rivals. It seemed all good too but Kayla is adamantly against anything going forward when she finds out. But this tight end is not giving up despite the penalty that's for sure.
I felt the double edge, I felt the conflict of liking someone then the unspoken forbidden part of them being a rival. Like Romeo and Juliet with sports. As a fan I get that rival sports teams, house divided and all that. It can be a friendly smack talk competition some it can be huge for others.The families were a little over the top but I wouldn't expect less from football/sports families. I liked those parts, it was fun to see. As for Kayla and Jay I like the little competition vibe it makes things fun and competitive banter. It sends a nice message too sometimes it's.more than the game.
When you have a common cheerleaders and footballers theme it's mostly quarterbacks so this was a fun twist on that. The football fan in me likes how the author talks football too. I will say I unexpectedly really liked this book of Nikki's story wise while the other ones I've read of hers is good too this one appealed to me best. I hope this is not her last sports romance, she does write it well.
