    We were enemies.

Cassius and Jessa, Weston and Lena, her recent novellas. none of them gave me what i always craved from her. until this bitch. she gave what was supposed to be given. i think Becca Steele at her roots excels at enemies to lovers.

We loathed each other with a hatred that was like a living thing, feeding off our animosity. the way i devoured this✋🏻 Becca Steele and i haven’t seen eye to eye with her last few releases... Cassius and Jessa, Weston and Lena, her recent novellas. none of them gave me what i always craved from her. until this bitch. she gave what was supposed to be given. i think Becca Steele at her roots excels at enemies to lovers. Caiden and Winter lured me in and got me reading Steele’s entire backlist bcos i loved their trilogy— their enemies to lovers arc was so damn good but nothing has truly captured me since them. until Savage Rivals. they low-key reminded me of Winter and Caiden, with Asher being Winter and Levi being Caiden, with their ridiculous but hilarious pranks and antics. both of them as bad as each other, giving as good as they got. it was just rife with brutal tension, these undertones of anxiety bcos you couldn’t predict what either of them were gonna do next😭 the Gallavich vibes i got from these two?? ✨delicious✨ im a basic bitch, but two guys who beat the shit out of each other bcos they’re actually in love is my kryptonite, okay? i was a whore for it in Tryst Six Venom too. there’s something just completely unhinged about it that i love lmao. i seriously just pictured this interaction from Shameless: from this:   to this:   to this:   it’s called range. and it made me unhinged too🤪 bcos NOT THE AGGRESSIVE KISSING INTERRUPTED BY THEM SAYING “I FUCKING HATE YOU SO MUCH” STOP “I hate you so fucking much.” His voice was a low, savage rasp. He pulled my head to his, and our mouths met again in a fight for dominance, a clash of teeth and tongues. “I really…fucking…hate…you, too,” I ground out between attacks, biting and licking, my fingers digging into his biceps. it truly gives me life. like they get turned on from beating the shit out of each other, i– me fangirling over Asher and Levi beating the shit out of each other and refusing to question my sanity: and watching them be truly pissed off, feeling absolutely abhorrent about being attracted to each other was fucking golden. like they would kiss and be like “fuck, no... erm yes, but ew, but also yes.” they hated how attracted and obsessed they were with each other that it was hard not to grin like a lunatic. ”And you? I can’t stand the sight of you, so why are you, of all people, fucking with my head like this?” I shook my head. “None of it makes any fucking sense.” “I can’t stand the sight of you, either.” they were everything, wow. like Levi being pissed when other people made derogatory comments about Asher – he really was like “only i can be mean to him, leave my boyfriend alone😠” then when Asher’s best friend threatens to punch Levi in the face, Asher GROWLS at him to not touch Levi, i– you’re telling me that’s not Gallavich?? ”I don’t know if I want to kiss you or punch you right now.” and them calling each other Seven and Ten for their football numbers... then calling each other by their real names all soft and squishy🥺 they delivered oh my god. but honestly whenever they got too squishy, i was like NO FIGHT, JUST ONE MORE TIME! bcos it was just so fun ahaha. but the cuteness didn’t last too long. they’d proceed to beating the shit out of each then have sex right after :) ”Too preoccupied with enacting your revenge after our team beat yours?” I suggested, knowing it would rile him up. When his frustrated huff of breath came through the speaker, I smiled, but my smile died away when he finally spoke again. “Too preoccupied with you, Ten.” His voice had gone all husky and low. and not their love declaration making me tear up✋🏻 AND THE EPILOGUE STOP IT. IT WILL FOREVER HAVE ME IN A CHOKEHOLD EURGHHHHH. wish i hadn’t read this so fast, but i honestly couldn’t help it. Becca Steele needs to write more mm romances ASAP bcos i think she excels at them. my only complaint is, i wish Becca Steele didn’t accommodate to American slang when she’s British and her characters are. having her characters say “ass” and “asshole” amidst British slang sounds so weird. having Asher be like “im skiving today, mate, so see ya later asshole” was just jarring af to read. we say ARSE with a big fat juicy R in the middle :)

    I think I’ve just gotten used to the fact that many MM romances have ugly covers because I DID NOT KNOW THIS WAS MM. I got so excited when I found out that there’s a new NA - enemies to lovers - rivalry MM romance. All of my favorites in one. Fucking perfection. I absolutely loved it. The characters were great. The enemies and rivalry portion was spot on and it wasn’t petty. It was real hatred and exhaustion and it was amazinggg. I did read it in hopes that it would remind me of Heated Rival I think I’ve just gotten used to the fact that many MM romances have ugly covers because I DID NOT KNOW THIS WAS MM.

I did read it in hopes that it would remind me of Heated Rivalry but I guess I should’ve learned my lesson a longgg time ago because no one compares to my Ilya. But the rivalry was a close second The book wasn’t anywhere close to perfect and my rating is probably wayyy too high for it but you know what? I DONT FUCKING CARE. Because I enjoyed the fuck out of it. Asher and Levi owned me in this. It just helped that they’re dialogues and personalities weren’t cliche and “tried to be different “ type. Please read it. It’s fun and addicting and I 100000% recommend it to anyone who just loves NA- high school MM romances. Because there’s not much of football talk here

Savage Rivals is a fast-paced enemies-to-lovers story that focuses on two rival football (soccer) captains, Levi and Asher. They are both from competing high schools and have been enemies for the last year. One fun aspect of Savage Rivals is that while they have been at odds on the field there has always been some underlying tension beyond just opposing football teams. Savage Rivals is the slow unraveling of genuine feelings between two stubborn jocks who are constantly struggling for dominance. I loved the chemistry and sexual tension between Asher and Levi throughout the story. Their relationship progression was fun to see develop into something more meaningful without losing their witty banter.

Asher Henderson and Levinson Woodford are high school students from rival high schools. Asher is the captain of the Highnam Academy football team; he lives with his single mom in the roughest part of town and works at the neighborhood grocery store, while Levi—the captain of the Alston High football team and Asher’s enemy—lives in the richest part of town and goes to a prestigious school. Everyone knows they are enemies, but that night completely changed everything between them. They shouldn't have crossed the line, and they knew it, because now they can't get each other out of their heads. This book was literally PERFECTION! This story was an all-consuming addictive page turner; it was wonderfully written, the characters are well developed, the pacing was incredible and the dialogue was mesmerizing. Asher and Levi’s chemistry was off the charts hot and their passion was intense and undeniable. They were so sweet, loving and funny, the I-hate-you-but-I-need-you energy between them was so freaking hot, and the sneaking outs and secret encounters were one of the best parts of the story. They are literally prefect to each other; I loved getting to see/read their relationship develop from enemies to lovers. These two were literally so stubborn but still very likable and lovable characters. #BestCoupleEver I could feel his pulse pounding underneath my fingers, and as I began to ease the knife from its sheath, he angled his head forwards, our lips almost touching. ❝︎Do it.❞︎ Then his mouth came down on mine. Aside from Asher and Levi, there were some incredible side/supporting characters, as well. My favorite being Milo, Levi’s best friend; I have to admit that at the beginning I judged him so much just because I thought he was just a pretentious jock—which he is—but he ended up winning me over. I really liked his friendship with Levi and that he was supportive of his best friend; he was such a nice friend. Talia and Danny, Asher’s best friends, were amazing, as well. They were also so supportive of Asher’s sexuality and his relationship with Levi. I also really liked that the author didn’t add any unnecessary jealousy between them. For context, Talia was Asher’s on-again, off-again girlfriend and they broke up because they didn’t work out as a couple and decided to stay as friends. Danny is Asher’s best friend and Talia’s boyfriend. I really there wasn’t even drama between them; Asher was very supportive and happy of their relationship—it was literally his dream for them to find love in one another. I met my friends outside the park gates. It didn’t escape my notice that Danny and Talia were holding hands, and I pushed between them, slinging my arms over their shoulders. ❝︎Nice to see my two best mates have progressed to hand-holding.❞︎ They both rolled their eyes at me. ❝︎Seriously, you know I’m all for this relationship.❞︎ Also, this is pretty much an unpopular opinion, but I really enjoyed the rivalry between them, and when I mean “them”, I mean both football teams. Yah, the pranks and vandalism to private properties were unnecessary, because you know it ended, but their rivalry in the field was great. Yeah, this story had a lot of things I liked but it also had some things I didn’t like. First, This spice/smut was great, not gonna lie, but I don’t like adults explicitly writing teenagers/high school students having sex—and yeah, you can’t use the excuse that they are “adults” because they’re 18. They’re still high school students. When do you think they turned 18? Second, yess, I liked that this story was fresh and it was not focused on self-exploring and coming-out, but I would have liked if the author explored more on their sexualities. Third, y’all know how much I dislike the “absent parents” trope. Also, Levi’s parents >>>> Asher’s mom. Forth, this is not a problem with the book itself but with the people recommending it. Y’all made a fuss about this story being British and that it had a lot of British slangs but the only I saw and payed attention to was “mate”. Overall, this was a quick and enjoyable story and I had a really great time reading it. Looking forward to the author’s next m/m book. I almost forgot, the epilogue was THE best thing in the book; it made me sob so freaking much. #Sobbing #BestEpilogue TW/CW: Sexual Content, Violence. Rep: Bi/Pan MCs.

I enjoyed this book a lot, there were a few issues but I liked it and really, went through it in a few hours, just that invested I was. This book is an MM romance, featuring the love-hate relationship between two MALE teenagers. This book even though I liked it quite a lot, I still found a few issues within that made me not completely felt in love with it. I felt like this book was a bit too rushed at the beginning and at the end too, like they got together maybe a little too soon, I wanted more bantering and fighting between them, more pranks too. And then the ending was a bit abrupt too, maybe, I don't know exactly, I was just there, left wanting more. (😭🤔) There were a bit too much sex scenes... I wished for more emotional connection or more plot/plot twists but well, I'm glad at least we got that plot twist towards the end. (Although, I'm now confessing that usually MM's have a lot of sexual content even more than MF) Let's just get to the interesting points of this review, before I bore everyone out of their minds with my useless ranting (😎🤯). The PLOT was a bit rushed a bit at the beginning and at the end, but the story was interesting, sexy and steamy. The plot is centered between the rivalry between two soccer teams of two different schools, and their captains, who specially hate each others guts. How they would vandalise/prank each other’s schools to piss each other off, they would use foul play during soccer games, they would fight each other in The Pit (like an "arena" were they fight one on one until one taps out or is knocked out)... the kind of things teenagers do between them just because they are rivals and want to show who is better/stronger than the other. (😏🙆🏻‍♀️) The ROMANCE is actually great, the chemistry between Asher and Levi is on tune, they are very hot and cute together. Sometimes, I would feel frustrated wishing for a more emotional connection (but we know how this is... 😪😓) than a sexual one. Their romance is sexy, hot and steamy, they go from enemies to lovers in a blink of an eye, actually, one moment they are beating each other up and the next, out of nowhere, they start kissing (abusing 🙊) each other's lips. But towards the end, you can get a glimpse of an emotional connection growing between them, which was beautiful, and it was quite frustrating that the book ended when it was just getting even better. (😭) There are some good and popular troupes in this book: ♡ Enemies To Lovers ♡ Possesive Hero ♡ Secret Relationship ♡ Rich/Poor ♡ Virgin Gay Sex ♡ Bi-awkening The CHARACTERS , so in this department I didn't have any problem (shocker! 👏🏼) I liked both mc's the same (lie, I liked Levi a teeny bit more 🤫) and the supporting characters were good too, the friends of both mc's, were loyal, trustful and funny, easy to like, honestly. 💀 LEVI "seven/7", he's the captain of Highnam Academy "soccer" (football) team , the school for rich kids, he hates Asher but also feels an undeniable attraction towards him, that makes him hate him even more, his pranks against Alstone High gets out of hand and backlash him in end. He's very competitive, strong headed, short tempered but he really is emotional and caring towards his important people, he's protective, smart and likes to win in everything he competes or involves himself in, even in sex (this was quite a view 😂🙈). His competitive streak only gets worse whenever Asher is involved or around, he has to stay above him. EXAMPLES: “Nah, I really didn’t . Nice place you’ve got here, Seven— not that I can see much of it in the dark. You might wanna sort out your little power problem. We could use some light in here.” “I hate you so fucking much.” My back was against the wall, and he was right up in my face. Again. All I could focus on was Asher’s lips, soft but completely unyielding against mine. Asher’s face was flushed, his pupils blown, and his mouth wide open as he stood there, at a total loss for words. Blood streaked across his lips, the evidence of our brutality. -- That must be a new kissing technique, we are just to amateurs to knew that... 😏🙆🏻‍♀️ A choked cry tore from my lips, and I fell to my knees next to Asher’s prone body, cradling his head in my hands. “Asher. Oh, fuck. Asher.” Brushing his wet hair away from his face , I curled over him, my voice dropping to a panicked whisper. “Baby, wake up.” I didn’t even realise I was crying until I felt the tears on my cheeks, hot against the freezing winter air. -- This scene, one of the best, waiting almost 2 months for this (🙌 🙆🏻‍♀️) 💀 ASHER "ten/10", Alstone High soccer (football ) team captain, the school for the poor kids, the wrong side of the town kids. Asher is quite the popular guy in his school, everyone likes him and respects him, they always expect him to seek revenge against Highnam whenever something happens and he usually delivers. Like Levi, he's very competitive, strong headed (even more than Levi, I would dare say), short tempered (a lot), smart and protective of his friends. He has an strained relationship with his mother, due to different circumstances life has put them through. He's need to compete with Levi and win is always there and NEVER, goes aways, they always need to compete for every single thing, even for who is top during sex, who kisses who... (everything 😂🏆). EXAMPLES: “Milo.” Easily moving out of his hold, I gripped him so he was immobile and pressed my knife to his throat, the flat of the blade against his skin. “Meet Ruby.” -- Why did I liked so much whenever he took out Ruby?? Levison Woodford, known as Levi to almost everyone. I called him Seven, after his football number. “You’re nothing but Highnam scum. A bully with not even two brain cells to rub together, on a loser team . Your little world is so sad that you have to try and provoke me just to make your pathetic life feel a bit better.” The contempt in his eyes froze me in place. “Tell me, Ten. Does it make you feel good to come here and—” “You’re going to pay for that,” I snarled. “It’s time I introduced you to Ruby. Properly.” “Do it.” Then his mouth came down on mine. The supporting characters, Danny & Talia [Asher's best friends and most supportive friends] and Milo [Levi's best friend and best supporter] are all great, the friends are funny, supportive, annoying teenagers but likeable (as likeable as teenagers can be 😂) in all their different forms. They help each other and maintain healthy relationships between them (shocker here, again! 🥳👏🏼). Asher's mother it's the only difficult character, for her reluctance to accept her son's sexuality. In conclusion , the book was very good and funny, the crazy banter and pranks between the schools were great and amazing (probably one of my favourite parts 🙆🏻‍♀️), the romance between Asher and Levi was very teenager (-ish 🤣), sexy, hot and cute in the end. But Levi was the one who stole my heart from this book and mainly the reason I rounded up the rating too (🤫😍🤡). I highly recommend this book, I hope you like it and enjoy it as much as me! Happy reading everyone!! 🖤🖤 P.S. This book was introduced (22 chapters exactly) in the anthology Brutal Boys.

I am curious to see what her other books are about. When it comes to an enemies to lovers trope, I am almost always interested. This one intrigued me due to its trope. So I was already invested and hooked. I will start with discussing what I did enjoy about this book. I liked the romance between "7" and "10". The tension and "hatred" between them was undeniable. “I hate you so fucking much.” His voice was a low, savage rasp. He pulled my head to his, and our mouths met again in a fight for dominance, a clash of teeth and tongues. “I really… fucking… hate… you, too" When they had these moments I was laughing like an idiot. One moment they wanted to kill each other and the next they were locking 💋 My boys were confused af haha 😂 I didn't really feel like they ever hated each other, more like crushing (hardcore) on one other. Even, our girl Talia called out Asher about his obsession with Levi lol. Sis was very observant. She smelled the bs from a mile away💅🏻 she was low-key stanning. I liked how we went from "Fuck you, Ten" To "I knew right then that I was completely fucked. No one else would ever compare to Asher Henderson." It was likewise for Asher 😌 It took a while for these two idiots to work out their obsession with one another haha. So their romance was fun and sweet hence why I gave it a 4.0 for the romance only. The "plot" was a snooze fest sorry peeps. The "savage rivalry" was not evident to me in this book. But tbh I didn't expect much considering this is a YA book, it was giving what it was supposed to for its intended audience. But personally it was meh to me. I didn't really care for the juvenile pranks/fights of teenage boys. While, I did enjoy the romance it was pretty fast-paced so it did at times feel rushed like some of my GR friends did point that out in their lovely reviews so I will not go into it in this review. Other than all that, it was a pretty enjoyable and addictive read. If you are into a fast-paced enemies to lovers romance with steamy scenes, then this book is for you. However, if you want angst, and a slow burn romance I would say skip this one🙃

    This was a fun read but felt a little too straightforward and one-dimensional to be amazing. ✅ IT WAS FAST PACED in that there was always something dramatic or exciting happening, which made this a super quick read that I finished in one sitting! 🆗 THE SITUATIONS SEEMED quite unrealistic - I couldn't really see people behaving like this in real life. But it's a book so I'm okay with some unrealistic behavior as long as it's still entertaining (which this was) 😆 🆗 THE RIVALRY WAS a little too overbl This was a fun read but felt a little too straightforward and one-dimensional to be amazing. ✅ IT WAS FAST PACED in that there was always something dramatic or exciting happening, which made this a super quick read that I finished in one sitting! 🆗 THE SITUATIONS SEEMED quite unrealistic - I couldn't really see people behaving like this in real life.

And then the way they ended up getting together felt a little too easy considering their hate, even though their hate was obviously just a disguised crush 🤷‍♀️ I don't know ✅ I LOVED THAT THERE was not any unnecessary drama towards the end. I always start to get so cringe when I just know something pointlessly dumb is going to separate the characters temporarily until the HEA in a romance novel - but we didn't have any of that! The main end conflict here was just coming out to their friends and family. ✅I LIKED BOTH Asher and Levi's characters. I thought their different backgrounds were really well done and portrayed well in the way they acted. Their banter was great, they had some intense tension at points and overall I thought their relationship was really adorable Overall, this was a really supportive and uplifting MM romance. All of the side characters were very supportive of their relationship and there was definitely enough spice to keep me interested 💗 Honestly, one of the biggest things that bothered me was how Levi so casually drove a $200,000 car haha. Definitely recommend! Steam Scale: 🔥🔥🔥🔥/5 Swoon Scale: ❤️❤️/5

    3.5⭐ Overall I liked it. I could not take these two guys seriously being rivals and arguing, it seemed funny and cute to me and although it is not the author's intention, because this is not a comedy, I swear I was amused to see them argue because as my friends said, they looked like two puppies (specifically Chihuahuas) barking, and well, that made it entertaining for me. 😆 Also they were cute and sexy together.🥵 Asher and Levi were straight, or so they thought, until a kiss becomes more and soon 3.5⭐ Overall I liked it.

Show me how much you love me by not crashing my car, okay?” And he crashed it. (joking here).

    3 Stars Overall Opinion: Eh, this was just alright for me. It started off with some good potential and then seemed to lose it and go into fast forward with some mushiness thrown in with a HEA. I felt like it was a little too insta for me and the fact that neither really had any real struggle with the fact that they were now attracted to a man instead of females like before (view spoiler)[though Levi mentioned thinking he was gay or bi before (hide spoiler)] , made it feel not very believable. I t 3 Stars Overall Opinion: Eh, this was just alright for me. It started off with some good potential and then seemed to lose it and go into fast forward with some mushiness thrown in with a HEA. I felt like it was a little too insta for me and the fact that neither really had any real struggle with the fact that they were now attracted to a man instead of females like before (view spoiler)[though Levi mentioned thinking he was gay or bi before (hide spoiler)] , made it feel not very believable. I think that would be a significant change in personal identity to cause at least some angsty feelings and I didn’t get that at all. Overall this, sadly, missed the mark for me and was 3 just okay stars. Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Asher and Levi’s story. They are rival captains of the football (soccer) high school teams. After Levi’s team ruined Asher’s locker room, Asher and his teammates are out for revenge. Neither can stop thinking about one another to the point of obsessions and one night they cross the line when they kiss and start to see each other differently. There is some team drama, some big life changes, and some sexy times…and they get a HEA ending. Point Of View (POV): This alternated between Asher and Levi’s POV. Overall Pace of Story: Alright. It was okay pacing and then seemed to be in fast forward towards the end. Instalove: Kind of because it seemed to jump from hate to lust to love. H1 (Hero #1) rating: 3 stars. Asher. I don’t think I really connected with his character or got very deep in it. He was just alright. H2 (Hero #2) rating: 3 stars. Levi. I felt like I didn’t get deep into his character either. He was also just alright. Sadness level: Low, no tissues needed Push/Pull: Not really Heat level: Good. They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes -- but not so much it takes away from the story. Descriptive sex: Yes OW (Other Woman)/OM (Other Man) drama: No Sex scene with OW or OM: No Cheating: No Separation: No Possible Triggers: Yes (view spoiler)[ Violence/assault (on page) (hide spoiler)] Closure: This ends with a jump ahead epilogue with a HEA ending (view spoiler)[they’re married (hide spoiler)] Safety: This one should be Safe for most safety gang readers (view spoiler)[ - Does Not have cheating - Does Not have a descriptive sex scene with OW/OM - Does Not have the H1 or H2 pushing away - Does Not have a separation between the H1 and H2 - Does Not have abuse - Does have a HEA ending (hide spoiler)]

    This is not a 4 stars book, I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT a 4 stars book, but fuck it I enjoyed it. You know when guys get together and do stupid shit: this book is that. I was rolling my eyes so much but I also enjoyed myself and when the hate/fuck started? 🤯🤯🤯 I cannot, it was really funny and really hot at the same time? And messy and dramatic, but they are teenagers practically so, I kind of expected it. Anyways, this was short, fun, hot and enjoyable. Not a 4 stars read but something. 🤣🤣❤

    Savage Rivals is a MM enemies to lovers romance between two football players of rival high schools. I picked up Savage Rivals right after reading Llakshmi’s review and only needed this line (4%) to decide this was going to be fun: The bastard started it first. Calling me 'Ten' the very first time we'd played against each other. All because I refused to shake his hand in the prematch ritual, and I'd only done that because the look he'd gaven me.

While I’m in the minority who is not really into this kind of super unrealistic hate to love, I just couldn’t stop reading this ridiculous source of happiness. I laughed and rolled my eyes because half of the scenes in the beginning would never happen in a real world setting (*first/second time they kissed*) but it was so entertaining I didn’t mind as I usually do. The only thing I wish is that the characters felt a bit different, because with some exceptions, if someone deleted the names on a scene I could never know who is who.

    "What the fuck are we doing?" He ripped his mouth away from mine, staring down at me as I sucked in a shaky breath. His pupils were so wide, the soft brown of his irises barely visible, and his lips wet and swollen from our kisses. "Fuck knows." My hand sliid around the back of his neck, pulling his head back down to me. "I still hate you."

    A definite improvement overall for me compared to the only other MM installment this author had done before this one. I'm a sucker for enemies-to-lovers and Asher and Levi's hate for each other was deliciously good.

I'm a sucker for enemies-to-lovers and Asher and Levi's hate for each other was deliciously good. The chemistry jumped off the page between these two and as they started to gain attraction for each other even as they hated each other, and then slowly let their guards down enough to let go of the animosity, it was so good. The rivalry was actually close to "savage" so it fit the title well. Asher threatening Levi and Levi's best friend with a freaking knife was WILD. But I loved later on when they were really falling for each other and were basically boyfriends, and some of Levi's team gets "payback" on Asher, Levi being so upset and wanting retribution for it was just as lovely. I love the "I hate you so much but for some reason I can't keep my hands off you" as much as I love the "I love you fiercely and I will fuck anyone up who tries to hurt you" dynamic. My only reason for a star off is that I kinda just wanted more drama when everyone was finding out about them. There was some, but...not enough. Especially when these schools had SUCH a huge rivalry and these two had hated each other so intensely. I felt like the book kinda just glossed over reactions or said they were shocked or uncomfortable with it, but we didn't get to see that, and it all worked out pretty easily in the end. Also when there's a couple who are keeping their relationship a secret because of how people would react, I am a sucker for people finding out by finding them kissing or more, and it's like *gasp* oMG and everyone has bad reactions to it and it's a whole thing. I would have loved that kinda drama in this, especially when the drama when they were enemies was so good. But otherwise, on the whole, I loved this and I loved these two together. They worked so well together. And this definitely made me open to more Steele MM romance books in the future, if she ever decides to write more. I was iffy after my 3 star read with the other, but wanted to give the author another chance, and she did well with this one. I definitely want to read more by her. So overall, a good enemies-to-lovers story that turned into a wonderful romance story. These two in love with each other was even better than when they were enemies, if only because they had made such good enemies beforehand. It makes the falling in love with each other part all the sweeter. Two big thumbs up from me, and I look forward to more MM books from this author 😁

I loved the epilogue, I wish there was an extra scene with a baby. They are imature (suit their age), fun, horny and obsessed with each other. Teenagers who are the soccer team's captain but don't have eyes for other people.

    I really wasn’t expecting this to be as cute and engaging as it was, especially for an enemies-to-lovers trope. This is a book about teenagers, but they don’t entirely act like teenagers. Except when they do. Basically, there’s a ton of sex. This is cute, lovey, and ridiculously hot.

This story was soooo beautiful in every aspect!!! This isn't the first time that Becca Steele had written an M/M story, but this time was absolutely blowminding!!! This was a perfect sample of an enemies to lovers M/M full of heated moments and out of this world chemistry. Who would have thought that I would love Levi and Asher so darn much??? "Do you give in?" "Never." "Do you?" "Never." Asher and Levi are both captains on their school's soccer team... They are going to rival schools and they are savagely on each other's throat into the field and out of it... They are doing too many ugly things to rile each other up and it's kind of obsessive the way they are feeling for each other... Their hatred runs too deep to not follow through every nasty thing that they are thinking... Until one fateful night that everything are changing between them... Now, they are swimming to uncharted territory and they don't know what to do when their minds are telling them one thing and their hearts tell another one... "We'd crossed a line that should never have been crossed. We were enemies. We loathed each other with a hatred that was like a living thing, feeding off our animosity. There would be a price to pay. I was sure of it." OMG!!! I loved this unconventional couple sooo much!!! To be honest here, when the main characters are into the opposite genre and then unexpectendly, they are realizing that they are attractedf into the same one intrigues me so much!!! Also, I'm a huge lover of enemies to lovers trope and Becca gave us a powerful story in that department.. Add to that a crazy chemistry between two male rivals and the result will blow your mind, as it blew mine!!! "I need you to hate me, Ten." Asher and Levi couldn't be more different from each other, but they were fitting perfectly together... I loved every moment that they gave to us... They were absurb, obsessive, hateful, but they were what the other needed... Becca, you gave me such a wild ride with these two and for a reason, I'm keeping them in my heart with beautiful thoughts... I'm already wishing more M/M stories by you!!!! "You should know by now that I like to fuck with your head, Seven." **I received an ARC for the exchange of an honest review**

    ”Too preoccupied with enacting your revenge after our team beat yours?” I suggested, knowing it would rile him up. When his frustrated huff of breath came through the speaker, I smiled, but my smile died away when he finally spoke again. “Too preoccupied with you, Ten.” His voice had gone all husky and low. *taps microphone* I LOVED THIS SO FUCKING MUCH OMG. It was funny how they hate each order? yes! it looked like they had killed each other's mother to hate each other so much but I loved anyway. ”Too preoccupied with enacting your revenge after our team beat yours?” I suggested, knowing it would rile him up.

Asher Henderson and Levi Woodford are enemies in soccer field. Because their schools Higham Academy and Alstone High are rivals. But their animosity is spilling out of field too. As they are determined to destroy each other's life as much as possible. Asher is from a poor underprivileged background while Levi is the rich jock. But do they really hate each other? They cannot understand this electricity running through their bodies each time they fight. . Asher and Levi both are fantastic characters. This is what I love about MM romance. It's double the fun. As I can drool over two gorgeous guys. They are both c0cky, arrogant, sexy as sin and have overwhelmingly alpha personality that made me swoon instantly. The beauty of this story is in the way the author delivered the hate to love transition. It was magnificent. They had to one up each other for sake of their school team's rivalry. The anger, the bitterness, the grudges..everything was just piling up! I wanted to just hit them to bring them to their senses. But through all the pranks and games, they got closer. They couldn't each other anymore and then the chemistry sparked and slowly they start to feel something else other than hate. Mutual respect. A strong friendship. A connection of souls beyond physical desire. It was intense. It was steamy and dirty. It was heartaching. There were so much raw emotions that my heart could barely contain them all. They cared for each other, protected each other and stood by each other through some very difficult times. They both had an awakening and it was a challenge to express themselves openly against all fear and doubts. But their love was strong enough! I loved the epilogues..they made my heart swell! . If you are looking for an unputdownable high school MM romance, Savage Rivals by Becca Steele is it for you. . I reviewed an early copy voluntarily

    Just devoured this in one sitting. I knew I'd love it as I'm a huge fan of Beccas and she has slayed me with her MM before and this was no exception. Levi and Asher were everything. I love the set up, the fighting and playbacks etc and the tension between them was perfect. I also loved the time jump at the end because sometimes short stories leave you needing more but this gave me everything I needed for the couple! Just devoured this in one sitting.

There was such a savage brutality to both of them when they were together with the perfect amount of vulnerability and it was HOT. Their normal has been completely obliterated and now they're left trying to make sense of their attraction to each other.

With the rivalry going beyond just Asher and Levi, things get deeper and more complicated and some are out for blood. Will Asher and Levi survive the fallout? I think Steele does such a fantastic job at discovery and exploration and I'd argue she is one of the top in being able to write delicious sexual tension and heart fluttering interactions. Overall, a solid story that had a heartwarming HEA. Triggers: Violence

How on earth, there is not a single active adult in the life of these MCs? 🤔🤔 •These guys talk all about football/soccer rivalry but we only see them playing once and the rest of the time all this rivalry was happening outside the ground.🤣🤣 •They do not need to sneak out or sneak in because their houses have revolving doors with no one giving a fuck for anyone entering at any time. •These guys never even bother to close their door.😏😏 • No family member or School authority cares when there is mass vandalism or even when an MC is beaten to the pulp.😂😂 •And, let's not forget that these guys are in the final year of high school, but the author has to keep us focused on romance, not on real life So, yeah, maybe, I am acting less like a disapproving parent and more like a jealous prick. Because my most dangerous pastimes in high school were skipping classes to watch my seniors play basketball. At that time I had no idea that my obsession was with tall guys and not the game.🤭🤭
