Sheena ☆ Oh, the Sheenanigans!

Oh why, oh why, oh why did I bother?

I skimmed more than I actually read. It was uninspiring and lacked that something something to immerse me in this family rivalry type of romance. It was all too instant and too dull and boring for my liking. I'll probably forget I even read this by the end of the day.

"For years, she had dreamed of Ajax Rawson telling her she was beautiful, making her blush. But that night he'd done so much more than that."

Veda Darnel, the one woman Ajax could not have. A long and bitter family feud between his father and Veda's ensured that the two of them had no business being together. But, when he kissed her, when he made love to her, the feud seemed irrelevant, stupid even.

Ajax Rawson was all kinds of wrong. He was renowned for his beautiful women, and it was well-known

An addictive sizzler with a feisty and intelligent heroine and a drop dead gorgeous cowboy who will make readers swoon, Robyn Grady’s One Night with His Rival is a sensuous, poignant and emotional page-turner I devoured in a single decadent sitting.

The Rawson and Darnel families have been bitter rivals for years. Veda Darnel had grown up listening to her father’s frequent diatribes about the family that had ruined his life and although Veda and the Rawsons had moved in the same circles, she had

Mixed feelings here. While I read this book in one sitting and enjoyed many aspects of the story, I do have some negative comments to mention.

The book faces Ajax Rawson and Veda Darnel, whose families have an old dispute, related to items of the heart. Always love gets in the way of a good relationship between friends. I won’t say more. A night of passion brings our main characters together and even if Ajax is willing to try the “relationship route” with Veda, she is not in a hurry to believe hi

4 1/2 STARS!

Undeniable passion! With the second book in her About That Night series, Robyn Grady brings us a story of forbidden romance in ONE NIGHT WITH HIS RIVAL. The characters were easy to like and the story line pulled me in quickly.

Ajax is a kindhearted businessman who isn't afraid to show his softer side to the woman he is quickly falling for.

Veda tries to fight their connection because everybody knows that their father's will never get along ... but temptation is too strong!

It’s always a refreshing surprise to find an endearing love story. This storyline has the majestic background imagery, a budding friendship, family drama, sizzling relationship, sparkled with a little intrigue. It easily draws in the reader from the beginning. The storyline is well written, with a secondary storyline as well; which enhances the overall story appeal. As the story continues you can feel the growth and change of the relationship. I would definitely recommend this story, and would r ...more

This is Book 1 in the About That Night Series and my first read by this author, and I must say that I am pleasantly surprised. The storyline, the characters, and the author's writing style are quite good. It is a steamy, emotional romance between children of rival families, Ajax and Veda. These characters are likeable, the connection strong, the chemistry combustible, and the unconventional plot makes for an intriguing read. It is a romantic adventure with drama, humor, and love, plus engaging s ...more

The h plays hot and cold more than the H. The H and h's dads are rivals in the same horse racing business. H is a playboy nicknamed 'The Stud' and h is a life coach which is actually a misnomer as she is mostly about lifestyle blogger and gives advise, presentations and speeches rather than actually 'coaching' but that's not my pet peeve. From out of the left field there is allegations about doping, there is talk of h being responsible for her mom's death, relationship issues with dad and hints ...more

There is nothing worse than rivalry to put a wedge between people especially when it's to do with stubborn old fathers, unfortunately for Veda and Ajax their fathers do hate each other. I really liked how at first we didn't really know why Veda and Ajax's fathers hated each other and then it all started to come out and you got a little torn over who to feel bad for but also frustrated about how stubborn old men can be as it put so much pressure on them. This is not only a story about falling in ...more

The story is nicely developed with a good and interesting plot. The chemistry and connection between the characters is amazing.

A modern day version of the Hatfields and the McCoys
Robyn writes a steamy romance about Veda and Ajax and their family feud and Ajax’s career interfering with their having any chance of a future together. Ajax not only has to deal with his a catastrophe with his stables, he finds the time to go after Veda to give their relationship a chance. I read this book in one sitting hoping the feud will end but that was just one part of the problem. The 2nd problem of Ajax’s career seems insurmountable or

Grady is a man with a painful past who faced more responsibility before he should have had to. After seeing the pain and devastation that love can cause and is determined not to follow the same path so he keeps his relationships casual and emotion free which was working fine until Veda.

Veda is the daughter of his family’s adversary and she has a painful past of her own which is affecting her present. There is no denying the chemistry between her and Grady but with so many obstacles standing betw

I do not know what this author had done but I can not seem to keep away from her characters and words which normal I do not read too many of contemporary with rich etc. But I do like a good one that carries a challenge to see where it goes. In this we will watch a match between Ajax and Veda with chemistry and rumors heading the way. The threads of intrigue adds the spice I delight in a romance with the characters keeping my attention also. We get the whole ball of wax with this one so I guess t ...more

Veda and Ajax have known each other forever. They grew up around one another but there is a rivalry across their families that means though they are attracted happily ever after does not seem to be in the cards for them. But the heart and hormones want what they want so despite a bit of high stakes intrigue they ride off into the sunset together.

Ajax and Veda grew up together. Ajax has always loved being single and able to ride his horses and do what he wants. He runs into Veda and he wants her bad but he shouldn't since her family is his family's biggest rival and competitor. Veda sleeps with Ajax and their relationship heats up until years of bad blood and accusations surface. Can they even have a relationship or was it doomed before they see each other? Really enjoyed the story and was great relaxing read.
