All’s fair in love and war… 

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.

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. 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.

My Review:

Resisting Her Rival was such a cute romantic story about two rivals fighting over a building, and whose hearts collide as they start to realize that they are meant for each other.

Abby Snyder has worked really hard to make her diner successful, and now she wants to expand it by using the building next door. But to her surprise, the person that also wants the building is non other than Nick Coleman, the undeniably irresistible playboy that she got to spend the night with. Months have passed since they've seen one another, and now that he is back in town, and in her life, she is determined to get what she wants no matter how irresistible Nick is. 

Nick has had a rough time getting clients for his business due to his reputation, his playboy status hasn't worked for him, and now he wants to turned that around by buying a building for his business. He knows that if he wants to change his status with the town, he'll have to figure out a way to make them see that he is a responsible and changed man. And he has just the right person to help him with that, and that is Abby Snyder. Nick knows that getting Abby to help him is not going to be easy, but the minute Abby finds out who is planning to buy the building next to hers, Nick bets her the building if he can make her fall in love with him in thirty days. It is a risky move for both of them, but they are equally determined to win. When the thirty days start, Abby starts to wonder if falling in love with Nick is easier than she thought it would be, and if she falls for him, she is going to lose the building that she wants. 

I really liked both of the characters in the story, Abby is a hard working person that wants to succeed, and Nick is more playful, but also a hard-worker. When the two visit the owner of the establishment to sell them the building, he tells them to figure out on their own who is going to be the one getting the place, and that's when the bet is really on between the two. The dynamic between them works and that's what also pulls them together. I found myself hysterically laughing in some of the scenes where Abby's grandfather is involved. He is a total matchmaker, and he is hilarious. The storyline was great, and engaging, it was nice seeing the progression that the two characters made throughout the story, to the very end. Overall, the story was enjoyable to read, as it was quick, and the romance between the characters helped a lot. It really made the ending cute and romantic, I would really recommend anyone to give this story a try. :)
