I’ll start off by saying that Rachel really set the bar with Ilya and Shane’s story in Heated Rivalry. And I’ve already dubbed it for any other couple in this series unable to beat those two out. However, I definitely enjoyed the heck out of this one. I wasn’t really expecting the slow burn, but once things start heating up, it’s best to get a fan to cool yourself off 😉

It took me a little to get through the first half of the book, I’ve been staying away from slow burns because I just haven’t been able to focus on my reading. Thankfully my reading has been going great so far, so I was able to push through with this one.

Another trope that I haven’t read about in a while is friends with benefit, they make me extremely nervous since feelings get involved. And one almost doesn’t realize their feelings until the very last moment; it drives me crazy.

I’ve loved the pairings that Rachel gives us with every single book in this series. With a bit of an age gap and being so different, they worked perfectly together. I hope we get to see more of Eric and Kyle in the books to come.

    OMG I agree!! It’s horrible that I compare all of her books with Shane and Ilya. I actually started a re-read of Heated Rivalry last night – lol.
