REVIEW – Rivals by Piper Lawson


When the biggest rockstar in the world invited me into his home, there was one rule:

Don’t touch his daughter.

For a kid from the wrong side of the tracks with no future, the offer should have been a dream come true.

Classy new digs.

A fancy prep school.

Someone who cares what happens to me.

Except for that rule.

The rich pricks at my new school worship me. I couldn’t care less.

She’s the one person who makes me feel worthwhile.

I want to save her from the turmoil eating up her picture-perfect world.

But she thinks I’m her rival: for her friends, her future, her father’s love.

I should keep my distance.

Avoid rescuing her from the assholes at school.

Definitely pretend I can’t see in her bedroom window from the pool house.

There are only two obsessions my life—music…and her.

All I have is my talent to set me free.

But my future will burn if I can’t stay away.

Rivals is an epic, angsty romance featuring two people from opposite sides of the track forced together by a forbidden love that could cost them everything.

Note: If you have previously read A Love Song for Liars, A Love Song for Rebels, and a Love Song for Dreamers, the new RIVALS ebook also contains an extended epilogue short story.

“A thousand paths that lead to my destruction begin with kissing this girl.”


I LOVE LOVE LOVE Tyler and Annie so much. These two forever have my heart.

Their story is full of twists, turns, ups, downs, love, heartbreak. Things are never easy and these two have definitely gone through a lot. The two of them grew not only as individuals, but together throughout the course of this book.

The connection between Tyler and Annie is deep from the start. Despite coming from different backgrounds and different lives they are drawn to each other. They balance each other. Their passion for music is another strong bond they share.

If you were a fan of The OC growing up this book is giving all those vibes, it even has a pool house.

If you’re looking for an angsty, emotional, rockstar, friends to lovers, forbidden, forced proximity romance this is one to check out.
