Publisher's summary

When you’re competing, the last thing you should do is fall in love...especially with your rival.

Wren turned up out of nowhere and now he’s my boss...kind of. He’s also a straight, closed-off, emotionless icicle. Who cares if he’s also drop dead gorgeous, with eyes you could get lost in?

Tom is beautiful, colorful, strong, creative, and my eyes can’t stop following him everywhere he goes. He also works for my parents, which means he’s off limits. That, and I haven’t told them that I’m bi yet.

A baking competition with high stakes. Two men who both need that prize money.

When the heat moves from the kitchen to the bedroom, will Tom and Wren put their rivalry aside? Or is what they stand to lose more important than their growing feelings?

Welcome to Chester Falls, where you can expect to meet sweet men, sexy situations, interfering friends, lots of feels, and a happy ever after.

Book two in the Chester Falls series. How To Catch a Rival is a standalone sweet and steamy MM romance novel with no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed HEA.

Love it!

I absolutely love this story! Tom and Wren are so cute together. And Nick Hudson does an absolutely fantastic job with this narration. I just love his voice and he brings all the emotions to life. He is perfect for this story. Another amazing addition to this world and I can't wait for the next one.

Sweet story

I listened to this book before the first one and did not feel lost in any way. The main characters, Tom and Wren, are sweet and have great chemistry. I will be going back and listening to the first one, since the story was so well written. The Narrator did a great job as well.

How to Catch a Rival Review

Love listening to this book, the story was really intriguing I was pulled in from the very beginning. With a low angst book and the narration was amazing to listen to. I had to check to make sure it was the same person. I would listen to this author again!

Such a sweet story!

I loved Tom and Wren's story. It is very sweet with a few emotional moments. I also love the supporting cast of characters. This book can stand alone, but it is so much better as part of the series.

I want to live in Chester Falls!

"How to Catch a Rival" is a fluffy, cozy, heated blanket of a story that warmly wraps around and makes your heart happy. And how fitting that I listened to this audio book in June amid Pride Month, given that's a key aspect of this book (albeit it's an October celebration in Chester Falls).

With the "Rival" title, I was somewhat expecting more of an enemies-to-lovers tale (an enjoyable trope), but I was pleasantly surprised by this being a sweet, low-angst love story. That MCs Tom and Wren fall in love while competing in a baking contest, could that be more "small town"? Love it!

Narrator Nick Hudson was new to me, and listening to him was an absolute delight. He delivered a very animated performance with unique voices that hit all of the right notes for the characters. I look forward to listening to more of his narrations, including more in the Chester Falls series.

I received this audio book for free by request and provided this honest review voluntarily.

Enjoyed!

I really enjoyed the latest addition to the Chester Falls series. Tim is full if life, live and happiness. Wren not so much. When thrown together sparks fly! I loved the snark and humor in this story. Nick Hudson dies a great job narrating this gem!

delightful

Would I listen to it again: yes
Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Was I invested in the characters: yes

Story comment: Delightfully entertaining story with good pace and likeable characters.
Tom is such a quirky and fun character and Wren finds the courage to be true to himself. This is a low drama, feel good story with some good humor that just left me smiling. A perfect listen for a lazy weekend. 😊

Narrator comment: I enjoyed Nick Hudson's narration and think he's done a great job narrating How to Catch a Rival. I had no problem distinguishing characters and the rhythm, inflections and intonations all worked to bring the book to life.
