Rival Hearts by Tara Randel

The Synopsis:

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?”

I received this book from the author/publisher for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.


Rivalry and love are the perfect ingredients for cliché romance. But really, who doesn’t love it?!

The characters really make up the most of this story without a whole lot of extra plot added in, but that is what makes it a well-written novella. We get to spend our time getting to know Molly and Ben and enjoy how their personalities clash, but then how they overcome this rivalry.

I really enjoyed the short, clean romance and bantering of Rival Hearts, so I gladly give it 5 out of 5 stars!
