'UNRIVALED' Sweet Kindle Fire Giveaway +FB Party! with author Siri Mitchell – Book Tour Review

I enjoy the opportunity to introduce readers to new books!
The anticipation of opening a parcel to reveal some lovely new read
is pure pleasure for this reader.
The hard part is writing the review!
Such was the case for 
Siri Mitchell's new release, 'Unrivaled'...

Lucy Kendall returns from a tour of the Continent, her luggage filled with the latest fashions and a mind fired by inspiration. After tasting Europe’s best confections, she’s sure she’ll come up with a recipe that will save her father’s struggling candy business and reverse their fortunes. But she soon discovers that their biggest competitor, the cheat who swindled her father out of his prize recipe, has now hired a promotions manager–a cocky, handsome out-of-towner who gets under Lucy’s skin.
Charlie Clarke’s new role at Standard Manufacturing is the chance of a lifetime. He can put some rough times behind him and reconnect with the father he’s never known. The one thing he never counted on, however, was tenacious Lucy Kendall. She’s making his work life miserable…
and making herself impossible for him to forget.

If you're following along on the Book Blog Tour for 'Unrivaled',
you've been treated to many accolades from other reading reviewers.
Unfortunately, this is one of the books I've found difficult
when it came to writing a review - or at least a positive review..
I leave it up to you to read for your own response
which is as it should always be!

The premise was good,
but the story and characters didn't add up to good reading for me.
I am not impressed with the immature protagonist
and never did come to any 'liking' of her.
Tantalized by the great cover; disappointed by the lack of character content.
Lucy was childish and mean,
devious in her attempts to keep her father's candy company afloat,
and never questioned blatantly obvious discrepancies
between her mother's comments and her own understanding
of their loss of the candy recipe that made another family rich...
She agreed to a marriage of convenience without any depth of feeling
and all emotions seemed entirely surface.
No questions about her fiance's activities or where he spent his time -
Waaaay too naive [or lacking depth] to keep my interest.
I was constantly putting the book down in frustration,
then picking up later just to keep my commitment to read and review.
Sorry to say it was so...
