More about Unrivaled:
Lucy Kendall returns from a tour of the Continent, her luggage filled with the latest fashions and a mind fired by inspiration. After tasting Europe's best confections, she's sure she'll come up with a recipe that will save her father's struggling candy business and reverse their fortunes. But she soon discovers that their biggest competitor, the cheat who swindled her father out of his prize recipe, has now hired a promotions manager-a cocky, handsome out-of-towner who gets under Lucy's skin.
Charlie Clarke's new role at Standard Manufacturing is the chance of a lifetime. He can put some rough times behind him and reconnect with the father he's never known. The one thing he never counted on, however, was tenacious Lucy Kendall. She's making his work life miserable...and making herself impossible for him to forget.

My Take: This story is told from the perspective of the two main characters in alternating chapters. They are both involved with candy making and the descriptions of the candy will have you craving sweets. I love how the author brings to life these two characters with real life imperfections and real life interactions. I really liked the cover for this book and it reminded of Downton Abbey. I would recommend this book if you like historical fiction and like the time period of the 1900's.
I received a copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
