Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Rival, by Megan Green


Title: The Rival

Series: Washington Rampage #3

Author: Megan Green
Genre: Standalone Sports Romance
Release Date: November 1, 2018
I love her. But
she loves him.
I’d known Avery Grant was the one for me since the moment she bossed me
around on the playground. After over a decade of friendship, I’m still biding
my time, waiting for the moment she realizes everything she’s ever wanted is
standing right in front of her.
Then one white envelope sends my world spiraling.
A wedding invitation, announcing Avery’s engagement to the one man who
could never deserve her: Miles Johnson.
Miles is the worst kind of human — and my biggest rival. Everything I
can do, he thinks he can do better, including being the best rookie pitcher the
MLB has seen in decades. But if he makes her happy, who am I to interfere?
But when Avery shows up on my doorstep, devastated and heartbroken from
Miles’s betrayal, I can’t help but open my doors for her.
The timing is all wrong, but I won’t miss my shot.
This time, I refuse to strike out.


Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

In the afterword of The Rival, MG says that it almost didn’t happen. That she struggled with Avery and Carter. And that is a shame, because they are my favorite couple of this series! I adored the friendship between the two, and how loyal Carter was to her. Even when he lost her to his rival.

Sometimes that “what you want is right in front of you” trope leaves me shaking my head because it doesn’t click, but I bought into every second of Carter and Avery’s friendship and cheered when they took things to a higher level between them. While Avery does move on rather quickly after dumping Miles, it didn’t bother me because of the years of friendship she and Carter already had invested in one another. And The Conflict that briefly splits them up was a bit immature, they both came to their senses relatively quickly, and MG resolved it with a nice big bow and gave me the HEA that I wanted for this couple!

And the epilogue? Catching up with all three of the couples ten years down the road was an absolute perfect way to wrap this up. I really hope there is more to come for this series, Megan Green!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
