contemporary, adult Cover to Covers erotic romance series This is ER nurse Heather Phillips, and wealthy Texas cattle rancher Grant Crowley s storyline RIVAL SEDUCTION can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty as can all of the installments in Weis s Cover to Cover series.Told from dual third person perspectives RIVAL SEDUCTION follows Heather and Grant s acrimonious relationship on the competitive horse jumping circuit Heather has continuously placed second to Grant s first place wins over the season, and with it comes the animosity between winners and losers Grant s reputation as a manwhore, both in and out of the bedroom, is the stuff of headlines and gossip news, and Heather wants nothing to do with the man who plays a lead in all of her fantasies and dreams When Grant is injured while working on the family ranch Heather is hired by Grant s father Tad as Grant s personal and private nurse What ensues is Grant s pursuit of Heather and the potential of a promise for the future for two people whose history and past lives are filled with heartbreak and betrayal Grant s success hides a the broken heart of a young boy whose mother walked away without looking back Heather s family history is rife with scandal, addiction, and the fall out of a criminal past.The relationship between Heather and Grant begins as competitors on the horse jumping circuit wherein Grant continues to best Heather in each successive event Heather s anger at her inability to succeed finds our heroine lashing out at friends, family, co workers, and Grant Crowley As Grant continues to pursue Heather in the hopes of a sexual relationship, Heather s past and her personal perception of the events finds our heroine pushing away the people that she loves At times, Heather comes across as acerbic and angry with a tendency to quickly lash out but her family history finds our heroine on the defensive for something that is out of her control The ex scenes are erotic, passionate and seductive Grant and Heather like to play a little rough in the bedroom.Rayne Masterson and Trent Newbury The Riding Master 2 play secondary and supporting roles throughout RIVAL SEDUCTION as Trent is Heather s riding master The addition of this couple adds cohesion to the series by way of familiarity and history We are introduced to Grant s father Tad, and Grant s sister Gigi, as well as Heather s brother Stewart a researcher in the cardiology department at Baylor The characters are relatable, engaging and charismatic The requisite evil s presents itself byway of Grant s soon to be ex Vanessa Dr Ben Eisenberg who pursues Heather for something permanent and Heather s inability to see the potential for a future with Grant.RIVAL SEDUCTION is a well paced, engaging and provocative storyline The characterization provides all of the necessary tools to get up close and personal with Grant and Heather, as well as providing information about the people and places close to their hearts The storyline conflict follows several paths but the major battle between Grant and Heather is Heather s inability to let go of the past a conflict within Heather s heart and mind While Grant s reputation precedes his introduction to the reader, his present actions do not parallel his history with women in the past we do not see his manwhoring ways The epilogue fast forwards the storyline approximately one year wherein we get a glimpse at Grant and Heather s future, family and love RIVAL SEDUCTION is my favorite COVER TO COVERS installment thus far Copy supplied by the author.

down until it s over Heather and Grant are a feisty couple, but I loved reading about their love story Good book overall Received a copy in exchange for an honest review Read and reviewed by Melissa for Alpha Book Club If you love characters who are very head strong, sassy, sexy and even a little sweet then this is the book for you Heather, has had a lot of things that happened to her and she s still healing from it She is against relationships and would rather have fun than commit I know normally it s the guys who have that problem but in this both have commitment issues Heather and Grant are competitors in horse racing Grant is always coming in first because Heather refuses to relax and have fun Even though they fight a lot, they have mad respect for each other and when the two of them get together, they explode They actually help each other heal and overcome all their issues to become better people Heather, regardless of how Grant feels about her, is still closed off and it basically takes his jerk of a father among other things to get her to see how much he really means to her I loved the sassy attitude from Heather, she put Grant thru hell and back, but it was so worth with how well they worked together Both of them were able to put aside their differences, fall in love and because of that they became better people I so enjoyed this book Granted I kinda got annoyed at Heather but if I was in her shoes I d probably be the same way It takes a very special person to open our hearts to love and the possibilities that follow You have to open your heart in order to be truly happy review by AMY The Cover to Covers series by Alexandrea Weis is one of my very favorite series The books are stand alone with a few characters popping in from other books I was first introduced to Ms Weis s writing by reading The Riding Master, which I loved Her newest book, Rival Seduction, revisits characters from that book Readers get an update on Rayne and Trent, two of my favorite characters in the series However, this book focuses on Heather Phillips, who was not in the original book, but is very much like another rider who was not one of my favorite characters in The Riding Master In Rival Seduction, Heather s backstory explains her hardened demeanor Incidents from her past make her feel that she is not cut out for friendships, let alone relationships When confronted by those possibilities, fighting and running away have always been her go to defenses The closest relationship Heather has is with her horse She is a fierce competitor on the horse show circuit, but no matter how well she rides she is always bested by her rival,, Grant Crowley They are constantly in competition with each other and seem to have a true hatred of one another inside the show ring, while outside there may be another kind of spark Heather is an ER nurse and is being pursued by one of the doctors After several failed relationships, she seriously considers settling for someone safe, but doesn t spark her soul When an accident throws Grant headlong into her life, her well ordered world is thrown off its axis Grant sees through to the woman inside Heather Realizing that she needs a firmer hand, like a spirited horse, Grant leads Heather in a direction she never knew she needed Like all of Ms Weis s characters, Heather and Grant are well developed and after explaining her past, I decide that Heather wasn t the cold hearted witch I thought she was Despite his upbringing, Grant is a smart, sexy, down to earth guy, tired of living the life someone else planned out for him The book is peppered with witty, sexy banter and than sizzling sex scenes The plot is well paced and I had difficulty putting it down to deal with real life Grant and Heather are like oil and water, can they make it work I was hired to proofread this novel The only aspects of the story I influenced were the spelling and grammar The author was not aware that I would be reviewing the book for the blog I made that decision because I review every book I read now If you feel my connection with the book renders my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review.This is the first Alexandrea Weis book I ve read that isn t set in New Orleans I think, there might have been one other one, but I can t remember off the top of my head and New Orleans still got a shout out Rival Seduction kind of took me back to my childhood reading The Saddle Club books by Bonnie Bryant There is a lot of talk of riding, as well there should be because it s part of what the book is about This book is very detail oriented You ll get a complete rundown of exactly what each person looks like, what houses look like inside and out, and even what the jumping courses look like By about the seventy percent point in the book, I found it a bit tedious, which is actually a bit odd for me because I usually enjoy great attention to detail like that.One of my favorite aspects of the book was the relationship between Heather and Grant I like my romances to build up to a relationship between the main characters, especially where there is angst and animosity involved and this book had those in spades Overall I give Rival Seduction 4 out of 5 stars because the story gripped me and kept me turning the pages, but felt a little tedious at times.Reviewed on Just Another Girl
