Skylar Fletcher and Caleb Morgan have been together for almost two years. On the surface, everything is great. Skylar is kicking major butt in swimming and has been offered the captain spot. Caleb is the top quarterback in the league. And even though their schedules can be a little hectic at times, they’ve always seem to make time for one another.

But once Caleb is approached by the NFL, his behavior turns odd. He flakes out on appointments to check out apartments and doesn’t call her on the nights when they’re apart.
Pro football has been Caleb’s dream since forever. But what kind of idiot asks a girl to drop everything so he can follow his dream?
RIVAL DREAMS is the dramatic and heartwarming conclusion to Natalie Decker’s RIVAL LOVE series.

MY Thoughts:
This was a quick read for me, even though I didn't read any of the other books in this series, I still knew what was going on. Caleb and Skylar have been together for 2 years and counting and they have had their fair shares of up and downs. Just as everything is starting to look up and they're about to look at an apartment together, Caleb decides to enter the NFL draft a year earlier than planned. Not wanting to make Skylar give up her dream school, Caleb does what he thinks is best and breaks up with her. On Valentine's Day. (I cringed at that and wanted to slap him myself). When Skylar realized why Caleb broke up with her she was even more devastated. Even though they were broken up, they still kind of acted like a couple. When Skylar gets into an accident that puts her in a coma, its Caleb's voice that brings her back. Right before the draft Skylar realizes that she wants to be with Caleb and that Duke doesn't mean anything without him there. This was a sweet book that makes you believe that love conquers all. I'll now read the other two books. I'm a rebel.


Natalie Decker is the author of RIVAL LOVE series. She loves oceans, sunsets, sand between her toes, and carefree days. Her imagination is always going, which some find odd. But she believes in seeing the world in a different light at all times. Her first passion for writing started at age twelve when she had to write a poem for English class. However, seventh grade wasn’t her favorite time and books were her source of comfort. She took all college prep classes in High school, and attended the University of Akron. Although she studied Mathematics she never lost her passion for writing or her comfort in books. She’s a mean cook in the kitchen, loves her family and friends and her awesome dog infinity times infinity. If she’s not writing, reading, traveling, hanging out with her family and friends, then she’s off having an adventure. Because Natalie believes in a saying: Your life is your own journey, so make it amazing!
