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.


This book was witty, fun and occasionally a little over the top with the whole rivalry thing. But it was a very good read.

There are many people out there who I know are going to flove this story – whether they bleed red or blue.

Nikki Sloane did an amazing job with this college/new adult romance. It was packed full of humor and steam as well as some pretty serious moments. Then again – it’s just football 😉

“Look around. There are no enemies here. There’s just good, old-fashioned rivalry.” – Bob Wells

The Rivalry might happen to be my first Nikki Sloane book, but let me just say that it certainly will not be my last!

Right from the start I was hooked on the concept of a good wholesome school rivalry, but what I got was something so much more. This story was hilariously funny and I couldn’t help myself from laughing out loud time after time. I must admit that I have never been a football watching gal (please don’t pelt me with tomatoes…I’m a Minnesotan gal who is a hockey lover through and through), but give me a story with a hot as hell football player on the cover and that thought is completely thrown out! I think Nikki Sloane may have converted me…at least a little bit.

Get ready to watch two arch-rivals fall in love…it doesn’t matter if you bleed red or blue because by the end you’ll be bleeding purple (😉 – yes that is totally a reference to mixing the colors red and blue together)!
