My thoughts about the book:
Well another hard review to write. Probably why I procrastinated about writing it. Just not my favorite story. The cover of the book makes you feel like your going to read a sweet romance that will thrill you. Instead you have two rivals who are pretty cut-throat about their goals. To have been such rivals their romance seemed a bit forced at the end of the book. Charlie fell short as a hero,he was little more than a thug with a winning smile and while Lucy was a cute and adorable heroine, she was a bit too deceptive to get her way. You would think a book about candy would be a sweet book, but I did not find it to be so. All in all not a favorite story for me.3 stars. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.More about Unrivaled:
Lucy Kendall returns from a tour of the Continent, her luggage filled with the latest fashions and a mind fired by inspiration. After tasting Europe's best confections, she's sure she'll come up with a recipe that will save her father's struggling candy business and reverse their fortunes. But she soon discovers that their biggest competitor, the cheat who swindled her father out of his prize recipe, has now hired a promotions manager-a cocky, handsome out-of-towner who gets under Lucy's skin.
Charlie Clarke's new role at Standard Manufacturing is the chance of a lifetime. He can put some rough times behind him and reconnect with the father he's never known. The one thing he never counted on, however, was tenacious Lucy Kendall. She's making his work life miserable...and making herself impossible for him to forget.
