Maria Rose
The Rival by Joanne Rock is the second romance in her Dynasties: Mesa Falls series. While the story arc of the overall series will continue throughout, this is a standalone romance for two characters first introduced in The Rebel – Devon Salazar (brother of the hero in book 1) and Regina Flores, a woman hired as a ranch hand but operating with her own agenda.

Devon has come to the Mesa Falls resort to meet with his brother Marcus, the co-owner of their media empire. While he and Marcus have had a

Very good story. Great characters. I loved the chemistry between Devon and Regina. Can't wait for the next book.

This book is so good. I loved Marcus and Lily and they way the communicated with each other. Some books you get couples tip-toeing around what they want to say or feel but these two say how it is. Marcus has trust issues because he feels Lily is spying for his brother Devon. I loved the line at the end when Lily asked him if she hadn’t answered the door for 3 days....she needed him and he wasn’t there. Joanne delivers stories that feel so real.

Who do you trust... Devon or Regina, I mean you know Regina isn't who she says she is but are her intentions nefarious or just a woman needing answers and what does Devon really want with the information about his fathers book that ruined lives. There is plenty of emotions, trepidation, doubt, secrets and of course some great attraction between Devon and Regina. Getting to know Devon more after meeting him in The Rebel was great as there is a lot more to him and Regina boy has that women had a ...more

The Rival by Joanne Rock is the second book in the Dynasties: Mesa Falls series! If you enjoyed shows like Dynasty and Dallas then you definitely don't want to miss out on this series.
Nothing makes for a better drama than sibling rivalry, family secrets and seduction and this story has it all.
I'm looking forward to reading more books in this series in the future.

I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

Regina is working at Mesa Falls Ranch, but she has hidden agenda. Davon is visiting ranch to meet and talk to his brother. He meets Regina and they start spending time together, but he can feel, that something is off.
With the secrets in the past, will they build the future?
Wonderful story and great characters.

An intriguing book full of choas, intrigue, drama, and romance full of chemistry. This all takes place in Montana in the winter. Regina is who she says she is and Devon trusts no one. Ms. Rock keeps your attention the entire time.

Rated 3.5 Stars

The Rival is a cute story. It's also sweet, sexy and predictable but that didn't hinder my enjoyment of it. What took away from it was a few issues I had with the hero and heroine which I won't post because I don't want to spoil the experience for anyone.
