Peek Inside Resisting her Rival

Abby Snyder finally has the opportunity to expand her diner now that the building next door is available. Unfortunately, she must compete with Nick Coleman to get it. Abby—usually über-responsible—shared one night of intense passion with the playboy, and she’s been trying to forget it ever since. But then Nick bets her the building that he can make her fall in love with him in thirty days. Nick’s confident he’ll get Abby to fall for him, so he’ll win the building and the girl he can’t get out of his mind. But even though Abby can’t lose, resisting Nick is harder than she thought.

Abby Snyder finally has the opportunity to expand her diner now that the building next door is available. Unfortunately, she must compete with Nick Coleman to get it. Abby—usually über-responsible—shared one night with the playboy, and she's been trying to forget it ever since. But then he makes her a bet she can’t refuse… and the winner gets the building.

With his reputation ruining his chances at gaining some big clients, Nick needs a way to prove to everyone that he's reformed. Dating Abby, the most respected girl in town—and the only one he wants—is the perfect solution. Unfortunately for Abby resisting Nick is harder than she thought.

I enjoyed this book. Abby and Nick are kind of rivals - competing for the same building but they are really attracted to each other and have spent a night together a couple months before this story takes place. This story was really sweet with witty, loveable characters. I look forward to reading mo ...more

I cannot say enough good things about this book! Loved the witty humor and sarcastic banter between Nick and Abby! Terrific dialogue!!

Resisting Her Rival is a quick witted fun read. Both Abby and Nick have their own agendas when it comes to fighting for the building they both want.

Nick's ego just can't handle some jabs, "no way could he let that go. "Whatever? Let me spell it out for you. We had mind-blowing sex. Best you ever had, you said." Abby she's funny in her own way and I love how she thinks she's bada**, "don't stand there with your sexy five o'clock shadow and think ...more

Loved this one! A humor filled story with amazing characters and a quick pace make this a perfect read. It's a sweet story that has the H/h competing for the same building.

By Brittany November 04, 2014

Resisting Her Rival is a sweet romance with a side of angst.

Abby is a sweet girl-next-door type. She's responsible, determined and has her heart closed off. Nick is a man with a bay boy reputation. They spend a night together,and that's all it was supposed to be.

Then comes the rivalry for the buildi ...more

By Patricia November 11, 2014

A fantastic read that I found very hard to put down. The characters were a lot of funny. Abby was sassy and independent but inside she was lonely and sad. Nick was self assured and successful also. The games these two played to win the ultimate goal (a building) had me laughing me butt off. What the ...more

This is a fun story about a small town, where everyone knows your name and has a long memory. Abby and Nick both have histories to out live. Abby is a strong, strong character (sometimes I felt she was too strong it took a long time to see her softer side). Nick is funny and easy to fall in love wit ...more

This was exactly what I've come to expect of an Entangled Bliss story. It was sweet, funny, romantic, and just a little frustrating.
Abby is a good girl who guards her heart out of fear of being hurt and instead focuses on her diner and protecting her sisters. Nick is the misunderstood good guy with ...more

Abby and Nick have great chemistry - and one fantastic night three months ago proved it - but now they both want the building next to Abby’s diner and Nick also wants Abby, so a challenge is issued!

Another great book by Sonya Weiss. Abby is used to taking care of her family and doing everything by herself after her divorce. Nick has always noticed her but she's never given him the time of day. A few months ago, a chance encounter, and a night of passion she's back to ignoring Nick until they w ...more
