Book Review: Rival Hearts
They both want the promotion. But will they find out that it is worth the cost?
Molly Henderson and Ben Weaver have been rival magazine writers for the same publishing group for years. When both come up for the same promotion, they find themselves in an unexpected competition to win the spot. Molly, editor of Quilter’s Heart, and Ben, editor of Outdoor Adventures, must switch roles, each working for the other for one month, then submit an article at the end of their quests. Can girly‑girl Molly survive the outdoor adventures that Ben has planned? Can Ben navigate the perils of the social dynamics of quilting events without destroying a valuable quilt in one short month? More importantly, in this he‑said, she‑said situation, will Molly and Ben give in to their attraction and fall in love, no matter who wins?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Through Tampa Area Romance Authors, Tara learned all about the business of publishing, starting with the craft of writing to behind the scenes of publishing. She served as contest coordinator for four years and served as President for one year, enjoying the organization and the lasting friendships made there.
When not writing, Tara owns a business with her husband and stays busy with her two daughters. She lives on the West Coast of Florida, where gorgeous sunsets inspire the creation of heartwarming stories, filled with love, laughter and the occasional mystery. Enjoy!
This was a fun read....right from the beginning I couldn't help but cheer Molly on, and that little wicked side of me really wanted Ben to fail. But, Ben grew on me.
The challenges Ben and Molly's boss choose for them are rather interesting, but designed to push them outside their comfort zone, how far will they go to win? ...and there's an unexpected foe trying to sabotage Molly.
I really enjoyed how the book ended, it showed how big both Molly and Ben's hearts were, and the symbolism of the Rival Hearts was woven throughout the entire story, as well as the quilt.
A fun summer sit on the deck kind of a read!
