First crush. First kiss. First nemesis.
As kids, Alex Boyd and I were best friends. Until my crush sparked a kiss and our friendship went up in flames. Years of flip-flopping between avoidance and antagonizing turned into… well, us.
Now, anything I can do Alex can do better. Raise money for charity? Run a marathon? Sail a regatta? Alex is there and besting me.
I’m determined to keep him out of my blossoming new photography career. But thanks to our meddling mothers, Alex winds up on a safari in South Africa with me.
Same trip. Same tent. Same bed.
Things are about to get wild.
The fifth in the Love and Wanderlust series, The Rival in South Africa is a forced proximity romance between childhood crushes who ignite into something deeper. This stand-alone contemporary romance is perfect for everyone who wants their wanderlust to continue into the happily-ever-after.
This book was originally published as a novella in the Hate Me Like You Mean It anthology. It has been expanded to a full-length novel.
