✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Rivals by Piper Lawson

 

Rivals
By: Piper Lawson
Narrated by: Teddy Hamilton & Rose Dioro

When the biggest rock star in the world invited me into his home, there was one rule:

Don’t touch his daughter.

For a kid from the wrong side of the tracks with no future, the offer should have been a dream come true.

Classy new digs.

A fancy prep school.

Someone who cares what happens to me.

Except for that rule.

The rich pricks at my new school worship me. I couldn’t care less.

She's the one person who makes me feel worthwhile.

I want to save her from the turmoil eating up her picture-perfect world.

But she thinks I’m her rival: for her friends, her future, her father’s love.

I should keep my distance.

Avoid rescuing her from the assholes at school.

Definitely pretend I can’t see in her bedroom window from the pool house.

There are only two obsessions my life—music…and her.

All I have is my talent to set me free.

But my future will burn if I can’t stay away.

Rivals is an epic, angsty romance featuring two people from opposite sides of the track forced together by a forbidden love that could cost them everything. Listen today and find out if the damaged boy in the pool house can be the happily ever after she’s looking for!

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

After falling in love with Jax and Haley in the Wicked series, I knew I had to get Tyler and Annie's story. And let me tell ya - these two are an exercise in frustration! I don't know how many times I wanted to shake the living daylights out of them and point them in the right direction. Of course, that would've made for a much shorter tale, and as maddening as this pair is through so much of their journey, it's a journey well worth taking. Their story broke my heart, mended it, and broke it again... So, yeah, I kind of felt like I was on a rollercoaster and couldn't get off, but all of that made the conclusion that much sweeter.
Teddy Hamilton and Rose Dioro give an A+ performance on the narration. I already knew to expect great things from Teddy Hamilton, and while Rose Dioro was new to me, I'll be looking for her name in audio from this point on.
So, we have a beautifully written, oh-so-angsty romance and a top-notch narration. That's a hard combination to beat, and I'd highly recommend that you don't miss it.
