Ryder Rodgers had a plan.
He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell.
Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival. More like a constant thorn in his side. And his ego’s.
When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who meets his gaze is nothing like the drab wallflower he used to know. Hell no. She was all woman now: curves, confidence, and staggering sex appeal. And no doubt, still brilliant.
The fact that she’s gorgeous and bright won’t distract him. This time, Ryder’s determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper can help it.
I knew it! I just knew it! K. Bromberg never disappoints with her incredibly sexy romances, and SWEET RIVALRY….oh boy…smokin’ HOT, fast paced, and deliciously SEXY! This second-chance, enemies-to-lovers romance was just what the doctor ordered. I needed this story so bad, and once I started, there was NO WAY IN HELL I was putting this baby down!
“Tell me what to do, Harper.”
Harper Denton and Ryder Rodgers have a history. It was by no means sexual or romantic, but a history no less. Competition was always the name of the game, until it didn’t matter anymore. Fast forward 13 years later, and fate brings the two competitors back together in quite a unique situation. Harper and Ryder are both up for a great opportunity for their careers and just like no time has passed, their competitive streak comes back in full-force. But this isn’t some friendly competition between friends. No, this is something more. It turns out that the PASSION that drives competition, also drives something deeper. Ryder wants Harper. Harper wants Ryder. Their connection goes deeper than beating out a bid. They only need to explore it, for it to completely consume them. FIREWORKS people! HOT HOT HOT office sex! Dirty talk like you’ve never heard before!
“Beard burn is a real thing.”
SWEET RIVALRY is a thigh-clenching, passion-filled romance that will have you blushing from head to toe. This may be a short read, but it is packed full of the same passion, intensity, and raw emotion that you would find in a full-length novel.
Work first. Reward sex next.
That’ll give me something to look forward to during the next few days. The ones I can’t wait to dive headfirst into that will be an ever-changing combination of stress, exhaustion, strategy, and manipulation. An unscripted dance amongst us bidders while we size each other up, calculate our numbers, and explain to the developer why we’re the most valuable candidate for the job.
It’s the game I love. The competition I thrive on. My return to the job that I’ve been desperate to make.
And there’d be no better way to make a statement that Harper Denton is back than to leave this building with the multimillion dollar contract for Meteor Development tucked securely under my arm.
And just like that, as a reward for my positive thinking, when I look up, there he is, in full view.
I take in the expensive briefcase, the venti Starbucks, and the expensive watch peeking out from beneath the cuff of his shirt. And just my luck that while I’m afforded a full view of his body, the one thing I’m the most curious about is obscured by his hand holding his cell phone up to his ear: his face.
So instead I drink him in. He really is magnificent. I note his posture and the way he carries his body when he moves forward a few steps. There’s an air about him that says he’s no-nonsense and in control, powerful, and at the same time he doesn’t seem uptight. He has that Southern
California professional vibe. I can’t put my finger on it but he reminds me of someone I can’t quite place. Regardless, a man who can pull off being in control and playful has definite merits.
Like “spank me until my body aches in want, and then make a game of hitting each erogenous zone with his tongue before he’ll satisfy that ache he created and let me come” type of merits.
The mind-blowing-sex reward just became even more appealing.
