Characters were enjoyable to read!!!! I love books in where both perspectives are written. Good chemistry between the main characters.

"Unrivaled" is an enjoyable book. The candy business setting and historical St. Louis details were interesting; also, the character consistency was well developed throughout the story. However, at the end of the story, the reader felt like something was missing. Perhaps, the author should have shown the change developing in the main characters' hearts a little more. Also, the ending left further questions in the mind of the reader. Overall, the story is enjoyable but not necessarily a book worth reading again.

This book was enjoyable for the most part. I believe the author wanted to create awareness about how ruthless competiton can be. There were even moments that had me laughing out loud! I like the lesson in this book: you should not act today based on someone's past failure. You have a choice to go forward and make the right decision. Forgive and move on
The cons of this book was the lack of depth in the relationship between the supposed lovers. The romance was brushed over and the reader is left with "they fell in love?" when?? did I miss it?

Such a 'sweet' story! This book is a lot of fun, and things are not what they appear to be at first glance. The author takes what you assume in the beginning and stands it on its head. I am generally not a fan of books that switch back and forth between characters every chapter, but it really works here. I didn't find it frustrating or annoying in the least. It's not disruptive and I had no trouble catching up to what was going on with the characters as the author switched characters.

I love all the history of St. Louis that Siri Mitchell has in the book, and at the end there's a note from the author that explains in more details some of what was going on at that time, in regards to candy making and competition between the candy makers, as well as some of the events that went on in the city and are in the book. I'd suggest you have some candy ready to munch as you read this delicious story. You'll be reaching for that candy before you get very far.

I received this ebook from Bethany House Publishers for the purpose of an honest review. My opinion is my own. Thank you Bethany House.
