The first boy I ever hated was Jax Bridges.

The first man I loved was his best friend.

My plan was to meet a boy, fall in love, and live happily ever after.

That ended when my boyfriend died and left me half of his business.

Now, his best friend and I are business partners.

There’s just one problem: We hate each other.

Jax and I have been rivals since childhood.

He wants me out of the business, but it’s all I have left.

The more time we spend together, the more we question if we were ever rivals at all.

Will my last love be his best friend?

Or will we destroy each other?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

I didn’t realize until I dove into Only Rivals that it is a next-generation spinoff series connecting Charity Ferrell’s Blue Beech and Twisted Fox series! OMG! I am HERE for it all!

Jax (the son of Maliki and Sierra from Just Roommates) and Amelia (the daughter of Silas and Lola from Last Call) have been rivals since they were practically in diapers. Their parents are friends, their fathers are business partners, and Jax and Amelia have always known how to push each other’s buttons. The story starts a few months after Amelia’s fiance/Jax’s best friend, Chris, has committed suicide, which Jax blames her for. And now Chris has left his half of the brewery he and Jax own to Amelia.

Well, we all know that there is a fine line between love and hate. And OMG this book gutted me. Amelia and Jax have such a deep history and there is SO MUCH between them. It’s ugly between them at first, but they both eventually show such vulnerability to each other. Jax makes some mistakes along the way and it’s a rollercoaster of emotions before they get there, but this is a wonderfully complex story of grief, forgiveness, moving on, letting go, and getting back the one that got away.

I can’t wait to see what’s next! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.


Charity Ferrell is a Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author of the Blue Beech and Twisted Fox series. She resides in Indianapolis, Indiana. Angst is her happy place, and she loves writing about flawed people finding love.
