Goodreads appetizer: Hayden Sinclair has it all: a job she loves, supportive friends and a drop-dead gorgeous boyfriend. She should be happy-and she should say yes when Luc proposes marriage. But one thing stands in her way: Sawyer Underwood, her impossibly sexy ex, who disappeared almost a year ago.
When Sawyer returns, he has one goal in mind: to win Hayden back, and away from his long-hated rival, Luc. Sawyer's willing to do anything it takes, and he'll use all his powers of persuasion to convince Hayden that he's the man for her-especially in the bedroom. But Luc's not willing to give Hayden up without a fight!
As the two men battle for Hayden's affections, she is torn between them. If only they could reach a compromise-then maybe she wouldn't have to choose...
Even though Rivals for Love is categorized as a ménage story, there is no ménage until the very last chapter of the book! Yes, you read that right!
Hayden is a sympathetic character, a woman to whom monogamy and loyalty are essential, so imagine her confusion and panic when she discovers that although she is in love with Luc, she isn't over her love for Sawyer, and that she loves both men just as much as the other.
