They both have something to hide,

but their chemistry can’t be contained…

Media mogul Devon Salazar wants Regina Flores, but his desire is tempered by suspicion. With sibling rivalry and his father’s secrets threatening the family empire, Devon can’t afford to trust Mesa Falls Ranch’s nosy new hire. This won’t stop him from seducing her. He looks forward to seeing Miss Flores exposed… Until the tables turn and Regina reveals their surprising connection…


Fast paced, attention grabbing and embroiled in scandal! With the second book in her Dynasties: Mesa Falls series, Joanne Rock continues to expose secrets as we get the second Salazar son’s story in THE RIVAL.

Devon came across as easier to like than I was maybe expecting after reading about him from Marcus’s point of view in book one of the series. He was authentic and took it well when faced with the fact that Regina was wrapped up in lies.

Regina was a bit of an enigma. You can understand once you hear her story why she’s intrigued with finding answers, but she never really tells us what type of revenge she was planning, so that plot of hers was left a bit up in arms.

I really enjoyed Devon’s story and getting to touch base with Marcus and Lily from the first book. I recommend this book and this series in general to anyone who likes a power-driven story of lies and intrigue that revolve somewhat around a scandal in Hollywood. Looking forward to more to come!
