AlTonya Washington's Rival's Desire (4) is a wonderful story about matchmaking grandmothers and fighting partners. Hilarious at times, serious at others and always entertaining -- especially the grandmothers -- it's great summer reading. When the grandmothers of RandB singer Vivian Desmond and football player Caesar Morrison call them to run their doll company, the sparks fly! Vivian and Caesar's passionate feud has been going on since childhood. They tease, play pranks and generally get on one another's nerves. But they make a great business team. When their personal feelings for one another surface and they act on them, Caesar is ready to commit, but Vivian won't -- she doesn't want him to know that she can't have children. Will this destroy their relationship?
