Our families have been at war for generations; a bitter rivalry with no end in sight. All I’ve ever wanted to do was make wine, but one night with James will cost me everything.

I shouldn’t be attracted to him… but I am.

I definitely shouldn’t want to sleep with him… but I do.

Is following my heart worth the risk of losing my vineyard and my legacy?

Because in my family, there could be no greater betrayal than sleeping with the enemy.

I’m so glad I’ve popped my J. Sterling cherry! And to top the lot, the topic she’d chosen was really easy to relate to as I do appreciate a good glass or three of vino! I live in wine country and have visited many bodegas, so her descriptive narrative not only helped me connect to her protagonists, but also gave me the feeling of being in their backyard…oops, vineyard.

This low-on-angst-light-hearted love story is addictive reading and before I even knew it, I’d finished the book. The story behind a family feud really intrigued me, but it’s wearing one member’s patience thin in particular. So, why has it been going on for such a long time you may ask. And for different reasons, why is it affecting the younger generation of viticulturists to the point that they can’t be seen together? Firstly, as it’s not made clear what happened until nearly the ending, my imagination ran away with me and what I thought was the cause for such animosity was way off the mark. Secondly, James and Julia’s fathers’ refusal to speak about it doesn’t help matters and a no fraternizing with the neighbours rule aggravates the whole situation even more.

Enemies, James and Julia definitely are, but hate is a word too strong to describe their self-same feelings. Problem is you’ve got to be able to see which way the wind blows in more ways than one before you can get your bearings, and that’s exactly what was done. Well, there’s no denying the attraction was there, but past events in their childhood made one of them apprehensive.

James is a lovely guy with a great sense of humour. Hard-working and like Julia, dedicated to the family business, a selfless act on his part makes her realise she could have been fighting a losing battle. A real tease, he also takes great pleasure in rubbing her up the wrong way. She always seemed to me to be on the defensive which only adds fuel to the fire.

More detail about how their wines reached perfection would have been nice but all in all, it’s a well-written story with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. Steaminess abounds ladies, so get your fans ready, too! Want an easy-to-read standalone with great character development, then Bitter Rival is for you. Bravo Sterling!

About J. Sterling

My goal is to write books that you can get lost in and stories that will leave you with a smile and a full heart. If you can forget about the real world while you’re reading and fall in love with my characters, then I’ve done my job. A lot of what I write has real-life aspects in it, but that’s what makes the stories so relatable- the fact that they could happen to anyone… and have!

I live in California with my son, Blake. If you can’t find me sitting behind a computer screen, then there’s a good chance I’m sitting in the bleachers of a baseball stadium watching him play. I love traveling to new places, meeting my readers and spending time with the love of my life, my very own second chance romance, who inspires me daily.

I know you have a million books to choose from and I am humbled, grateful and thankful each time you choose to read one of mine, or tell someone else to read them. Thank you.

EXCERPT REVEAL ~ HABITS by Anna B. Doe

Some habits are too
sweet to give up…

HABITS, a brand new standalone in the Greyford High Series by
Anna B. Doe is coming March 27th!

Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs

Goodreads

 

Senior year.Three girls. Three guys.Secrets and lies.

Demons of past and present.

Old insecurities and new fears.

One more year left to pretend.

One more year to wreck it all.

The countdown begins.

All Jeanette Sanders wanted to do was escape her past and forget everything that has happened. Coming to Greyford was supposed to be her new beginning, a clean slate. Only it seems like her past doesn’t want to let her go. As her old insecurities start to return in full force and lies grow bigger than ever, the only thing left is the hope that her broken heart will survive this time around.

Andrew Hill has been betrayed one too many times in the past. Cynical and cold-hearted, he closed off his heart for good and doesn’t plan on letting anybody in ever again. Especially women. But his heart doesn’t seem to care and starts beating faster every time a particular black-haired beauty gets in his way and puts him in his place.

He wants her body, not her heart. She tries to resist him, but the pull is too much.

They know they’re all wrong for each other, but some habits are too sweet to give up.

EXCERPT

Andrew Hill.

Partier.

Womanizer.

Daddy’s golden boy.

Hot-shot hockey player.

Cocky, presumptuous, but I have to give it to him, one smart son of a bitch.

He joins the rest of his teammates and friends, swagger oozing from every pore of his body.

His brown hair is messy and curls at the base of his neck. His lips curl into one of his well-known, arrogant smirks, revealing straight teeth. I’m standing too far from him to clearly see the color of his eyes or the lines of his face, but I know them.

I’ve touched them.

Andrew would look almost perfect if there wasn’t a slight bump on his nose. That small imperfection makes him look more rugged. More real.

His eyes always have this gleam in them. I’ve heard what people say. They call it mischievous, but I know better. I can see behind it.

I can see his darkness.

Because it matches my own.
