More secrets are revealed in this next installment of the Sunset/Caliendo Resort series. Up this time is Anya Caliendo. Anya disappeared two years ago shortly after her father, Robert, died. On his death bed Robert asked Anya to help right one of the many wrongs he had done on his life. Unfortunately, when she tried her attempt went horribly wrong and the woman ended up hurt. Now Anya needs to try and reunite the woman with her family, but in order to do that she needs to return home to the Caliendo Resort and gain access to her father's secret file room. She figures she can slip in and out without being noticed; however, she does not count on running into Quinn, her one-time lover who she feels betrayed her. Quinn worked for Anya's father and has secrets of his own as well as family drama to deal with. When Marc Caliendo, Anya's brother, hires Quinn to find Anya, he discovers that she has come back to the resort. When he startles her the chemistry is still there and he strikes a bargain with her - he will help her find the file she needs if she will help him find the file he needs. Can they get past their fears and mistrust to come together? This book can be read as a stand alone, but I think it is much better if you read the books in order. I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

Anya and Quinn’s relationship began two years ago. Anya’s father was not to be trusted and Quinn worked for him. That didn’t stop her from falling in love with him despite his shady dealings. Quinn had a hidden agenda in getting close to Anya and the truth of that secret keeps him from going all in with her. This was a great lovers to enemies to lovers romance with a lot of push and pull in the beginning. These characters both have reason to keep their distance but the chemistry that flairs when they are together cannot be denied. I hurt for both Quinn and Anya as they suffered through so much to try to find their own form of redemption. I enjoyed the pace of this book as well as all the secondary characters and the added color they brought to the story. The steam factor isn’t high and it’s a fade to black but still gave me enough to feel the passion between the hero and heroine. While this isn’t a low angst read, it isn’t extreme either. Overall, this is a very nice book with characters that I cared about and was invested in. Would love to have had an epilogue but I’m hoping we’ll see more of them in the books following this one.

“We will take this one day at a time until you do. Together.” And this is Quinn’s promise to Anya, his former lover, since her return to her family after an unexplained absence of two years. Two years ago, her father exposed Quinn for the heartless man that he was. Two years ago, her father died. And, two years ago, she was responsible for almost killing someone and her life then changed drastically. She’s not the same vivacious chef that she was. She hasn’t cooked in two years, and it looks like she hasn’t eaten much in that time either. Guilt has been eating her alive as we see the legacy of blackmail and deceit built by Robert Caliendo almost destroy the lives of not only his own family from within, but many more throughout the years. Quinn Barker had been Robert Caliendo’s digger of dirt, just like his father before him, only his own motivations completely differed. For one, Robert has something to blackmail Quinn into doing this dirty work for him, and Quinn himself had his own motivations. This goal was further complicated by his fascination and secret love for a certain gorgeous Caliendo chef. Sunset Rivalry is a well crafted second chance romance that sees Quinn and Anya have another go at discovering love, trading secrets that neither of them know the true depth of, and learning to trust each other. Trouble is, when Anya realises just who her guilty secret has affected, she’s convinced that those she loves will no longer want to be around her. There are plots within plots in this series, and as fast as my questions are answered, I always have more! 5 Stars for the continuing twisted legacy of Robert Caliendo.

Quinn has been in love with Anya for two years. Anya has been in love with Quinn since the day they met. Years ago because of choices and deceit, they walked away from each other. Now their back in Willow Valley and tensions are high. Anya is still angry with Quinn, except now she has her own secrets and guilt to hide and Quinn is still trying to protect her any way he can. Now Quinn and Anya have to uncover secrets and lies within their families while trying to find a way to be together at the end of all the craziness. This was a great story of two people learning how to forgive each other and others and finding love that’s meant to be. At the same time trying to fix past mistakes and making things right. I absolutely loved this book and I can’t wait to read more from the series. “I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.”

“He liked her, he craved her, but he was ready for her to stab him in the back like he’d done to her. `` Anya Caliendo left 2 years ago. She left her luxurious life, a career she loved and a man she was deeply attracted to but that deceived her. She now has to live with the weight of her dad’s last wish on his deathbed; she has to redeem his faults. Quinn Barker is used to be in the shadows. He won’t let his feelings drive him away from his goal; to access the Caliendo secrets to uncover a certain hidden file. He wants to make amends to the people he hurt by working for the dark souled Robert Caliendo. His dad had a last wish he has to accomplish in order to finally be free and live his life. Two families pulled apart by a drift caused by lies, pains and a deceitful man; Robert Caliendo. Anya and Quinn used each other but develop a mutual attraction that they are trying to push away. Quinn confuses her by caring but pushing her away and sending Anya mix messages. She wants him but he is torn between his family and the woman he loves. He wants her to find something more ,better than what he has to offer; She wants him. Anya’s father’s dark manipulative side ruined a lot of lives and his children once again are paying the big price. Can she and Quinn leave the past behind, get past their families’ feud and finally let loose of their love for each other? Shannyn Leah, as usual brings us in a world where we fall in love, get heart broken and keeps us on edge a few times! Even thou her books are standalones; I’m always excited to find out what will happen in the next in the series! Bravo!
