Title: The Rivals
Author: 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.

Lita T’s Review: 4.5 Stars

The Rivals by Vi Keeland is a modern day Hatfields and Mccoys except it is the Sterlings and the Lockwoods. It all started with 3 friends starting a hotel. One friend ask another to marry him. In turn she couldn’t marry him because her heart was equally split between both men. The friends split up and the feud begins. Now the woman in the middle dies and leaves the hotel to the 2 men from long ago. The grandkids are tasked with assessing the hotel. Sophie Sterling has to prove herself. Finding a way for her family to obtain a major share in The Countess is a priority. Weston Lockwood has one final chance to get his act together. Going to New York to get the upper hand on the Sterlings. Being back in the presence of Sophie has always been a problem, especially after one night years ago. Each now have their own emotional baggage. I absolutely loved Weston. Yes he has model good looks and a body to match. My heart also went out to him. His story is one of hurt. Being born for spare parts isn’t a recipe for feeling loved. Booze, women and late nights has been his way of coping till now. The chance to come to New York is the break Sophie needs considering she just found out her boyfriend was cheating with her cousin. She also needs to prove herself to dear old dad. The love/ hate relationship between the Sophie and Weston was everything. They were funny and entertaining. The sexual tension between the two was hotter than hot. Emotionally riveting story that had me from the beginning to the end. 4.5 stars for me. So glad they got their happily ever after.

Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Rivals is a complete standalone with an HEA! What are the chances that your rival would be sitting next to you on a plane? The Rivals are Weston Lockwood & Sophia Sterling (fifi or feef). Weston calls her his special little nicknames just to irritate her.

The rivalry started 2 generations ago. Their Grandfathers had been BFF’s until a woman came between them. Neither of them got the girl. Now they are enemies that have extended even to their children and now grandchildren.

Now the woman that both the grandfathers loved has died and she left them her hotel, 49 shares each with 2 shares going to the highest bidder.

It is up to the grandchildren, Weston and Sophia are given the job of bringing the hotel up to date and each are to bring in the highest bid so, one side can have the controlling interest.

I love when Weston and Sophia fight! Because the one place they get along is in the bedroom or wherever they might land….

This is a cute story. I love both Weston and Sophia’s personalities! They had so much chemistry together!

I love Vi Keeland’s books. She knows how to pull out all the emotions and then she brings you to “Happily Ever After”.

Bettina A’s Review: 5 STARS

Once again Vi Keeland did not disappoint me. I enjoyed reading this book immensely. Sophia is a strong woman who has to continually prove to daddy that she is more than just an accessory on a man’s arm. Finally given the chance to temporarily manage The Countess and try to win the bidding war to have control of the hotel by her grandfather she does not intend on disappoint him. Sophia did not expect to deal with Weston Lockwood. Although both Sterlings and Lockwoods has hated each other, Sophia has a past with Weston that she try to forget. Weston has secrets that he doesn’t want Sophia to know. The longer they are around each other the more lines start to blurt. Will Sophia and Weston overcome their families feud or will they let it keep them apart?
