#Review #NewRelease Sweet Rivalry by @KBrombergDriven

SWEET RIVALRY - RDL banner    


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.


Amazon | Amazon UK



K. Bromberg’s Sweet Rivalry is another story in the 1001 Nights novella series.    This was such a fast and sexy read you will fly through it.  You’ll be aching for more.

Sweet Rivalry starts off thirteen years prior.  Harper Denton and Ryder Rodgers have been competing against each other all through college, academic rivals.  When Harper finally edges out Ryder for the top position in the debate, Ryder is both mad and proud at the same time.  Harper is livid because everything always seems like a joke to Ryder.  He constantly gets under her skin.  
<b>This is Ryder
My rival
My Supporter
My crush.</b>  
Ryder respects and hates Harper.  He is constantly testing her, but he does it because he knows how great she can be if she puts her heart and mind into something.    He also secretly desires her.  When he can't take it anymore...Ryder throws in the hat and goes after what he wants...A fire starting kiss that takes the anger away and replaces it with want and need for both.  They realize there is no rivalry anymore, Its just the both of them in that moment….Soon the spell is broken and Harper retreats.  Ryder is left wondering if he should have gone after her.  

Fast forward thirteen years…
Harper and Ryder meet again.  It is an instant flaming white hot desire between both of them.  However, they are battling like old times, who wins this time?  Seriously the fantasies these two have going on in their heads about each...they could set the building on fire. Can they keep things from crossing the line?  Or will they eventually burn up their sheets?

I adored Harper.  She is a strong woman who is a ball buster...lol  She doesn’t let anyone get in the way of achieving her goals.  Being a woman in a male dominated career, she has had to fight her way to the top.  Her motto for the new job...Get the job and then reward sex...LOL.  
Ryder has definitely changed from the preppy looking boy in college.  He still loves to give Harper a hard time, but you can since a softness there.  He wants the job, but having Harper might be worth more.  

This was a fantastic read.  Kristy sure knows how to leave you breathless and dizzy with desire!  I really enjoyed that Kristy showed how everything started between them.  The chemistry and connection felt real.  She did a fantastic job showing us the sexual tension between them too.  I wish it was longer because I want more of Ryder and Harper!  Great addition to the 1001 Nights series...4 Stars


 He takes a step toward me then hesitates, but before I can process anything else, his lips are on mine. And not just on mine––not just a brush of lips against lips—but I’m talking all in. Hands on my cheeks, tongue licking between my lips, body pressed against mine, groan in the back of his throat, type of all in. I don’t react at first. I’m stunned. Flabbergasted, my mind reeling from the anger to the surprise to now this without any warning at all. This is Ryder. My rival. My supporter. My crush. The thoughts flicker that this is what I’ve wanted. But they soon shift to panic. To insecurity I don’t kiss well enough. That this is all a joke and I’m the butt of it. But then I feel. Everything. All at once. And I know this is real. It’s like I can’t catch my breath and have too much air all at the same time. My body is on fire. And not just from his touch but from that burn deep inside that feels like it’s exploding and imploding all at once. So this is what it feels like to really be kissed. It’s a fleeting thought before the sensations, the moment, the emotions, consume me whole. His hands move my face to change the angle of the kiss. His fingertips on the line of my jaw singe my skin. His lips move expertly against mine, and all I can do is feel. All I can do is want. Thinking isn’t an option. The anger from before has morphed to want. The adrenaline has recharged with desire. There is no rivalry. There is no graduation ceremony tomorrow I’m missing to catch my flight. There is no panic over if I’ll ever see him again. It’s just him. And me. The scent of his cologne in my nose. The heat of his body against mine. The taste of hunger in his kiss.

I faked my way long enough by keeping my mouth shut, painting a fake smile on my face and focusing hard on my job.
I quit going out to find that random piece of ass.
Not a one of them would stand up to her anyway.
She hates me, loathes me even.
Little does Vivian Shepard know I’ve got more tricks up my sleeve than she will ever begin to imagine to get her to change her mind, to get my chance.
I’m not giving up.
I want her, and by God, I’ll fight as dirty as I can get to have her.
No matter what!

Of course, I knew it was a one- night stand.
It’s was the perfect night before all hell broke loose to be quite honest.
Drinking, talking and flirting.
One I relished in as I tried to gravitate my mind back to solid ground after soaring so high I could feel the rush of flying.
My stomach dipped, my heart fluttered, and my toes curled inward and then I splattered to the hard surface of the ground.
Jude Westbrooke opened his big fat mouth.
He ruined it, ruined me, ruined it all.

REVIEW- 4 Stars
A Geeky, Sexy, Dirty talking alpha male, yet also sweet, considerate, protective and in touch with his feelings.  Who is this mystery man?  Jude Westbrooke
Ladies you are going to full out swoon over him.  Seriously who doesn't love a guy that isn't afraid to speak his feelings or cry.  Who will do anything to please the woman he loves and will stop at nothing to protect her or his family.  These Saint guys have big hearts and are easily lovable.  Jude man he is a gentle man with an old soul...swoon!  

Vivian this woman is strong!  She's a little spitfire and so independent.  She's beautiful, kind hearted  and fiercely protective.  She's just the type of girl you want as a friend.  

I haven't read Riddick so I knew nothing of the characters going into this.  I wasn't lost per say, but I did feel like I was missing a little something.  However, that didn't turn me off from the story it just makes me want to go back and read Riddick.  I need to know his and Cora's story.  

This was an intense suspense filled read.  It has the right amount of action, steam and swoon worthy moments.  I found myself getting hooked on these two.  After the first few chapters I was sucked in.  Once we got past the hurt and turmoil from the past, a beautiful relationship was starting to blossom.  But in true Kathy Coopmans fashion, she doesn't make it easy.  She gives us a roller coaster ride.  I found myself wondering what was going on, who would do this and would this push them further away when things just started too heat up. 

Jude and Vivian belong together.  The banter and sweet moments shared between them was evidence that they were destined.  But they just had to endure a few hiccups.  

Each of these characters, especially Jude, Riddick and Tyson will go to the ends of the earth for each other.  The connection these guys have is unbelievable.  They feel each other's pain and are extremely loyal to one another.  A brotherhood for life!  I loved that.  Oh and I can't wait too read Tyson's book.  After his little breakdown in this book, I'm all over it...I just want to hug him!  

Kathy gave us an exciting read where love wins.  I liked that she made them both vulnerable, but together they were stronger....they were one.  I recommend this book and will be looking forward to reading more in The Saints series.  4 Red Stars! 
Oh one more thing...Johnny on the cover is Jude all the way! 


“We need to talk.” I finally manage to pull away from her. My eyes are diverting from her mouth to her soaked t-shirt. “Fuck,” I snarl. Her pink nipples are standing out against the wet fabric, which is white and very thin. My gaze darkens the further south it goes, down to her tiny little pink and white shorts that are saturated. Rivulets of water are dripping down her long, toned legs, dripping off her silky skin to mix with the giant puddle on the floor.
“You look absolutely beautiful, Red.”
“What in the hell are you doing here, Jude? It’s a monsoon out there. And what gives you the right to barge into my house and attack me like that, anyway? Have you lost your mind?” She shoves me back a step and climbs off the counter, nearly falling on her ass in the process. Slippery when wet, baby! The spell is broken.
“I didn’t lose my mind. You fucking stole it. I can’t stop thinking about you, and no matter what you try and say, I know damn well you don’t want me to. So we are talking, goddamn it!” I yell.
“Well, that sure didn’t sound like talking to me. And take your mind back. I don’t want it.” Liar.
“No, darling, it wasn’t talking. What that was, was several months of pent-up frustration over wanting more of what you gave me the night we met. What that was, was me telling you that I’m not a man who walks away from something he knows is rare. You want to give me my mind back, then let me give you something more to stew about in that pretty head of yours. You are so full of shit if you think for one second I’m buying the piss-ass excuse that you don’t want me. And before your head gets all rattled and you start spewing more of your shit, I’m not talking about sex, Vivian. I’m talking about you. The woman I know is in there, but is too fucking stubborn to let the best side of her out. I want that woman. The woman I met before I fucked shit up. The woman I want to ask out on a date. So, you know what? I’m here to tell you that once you decide to let that woman emerge, you give me a call.”
I turn to leave and grab the door handle. I’m so fucking mad she isn’t trying to stop me like she should that I could spit nails into this door. Hammer this goddamn thing shut.
“I’m telling you right the hell now, Vivian, that if you don’t call me, then you are wasting what I know for a goddamn fact would be the greatest gift given to me, which is you.”

  THE HOT ONE - cover  

A sexy new standalone romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely…

Ever notice that sometimes a guy will do something really stupid, like let the love of his life slip through his fingers?

Yeah. I'm that guy. But the instant I run into her again I’ve got one goal and one goal only—a second chance. The plan? Go big or go home.

Fine, at first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend's place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her heart again. But trust me on this count—she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you've got to play to your strengths when you're fighting an uphill battle. As a lawyer, I know how to fight, and I'm prepared to fight hard for her. Because sometimes you need a second chance at first love.

He's the one who got away . . .

The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that at my job, showing off his rock-hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he's not . . .? I've tried like hell to forget him, but maybe I'm cursed to remember the guy I fell madly in love with eight years ago. Lord knows I’m not over him, so what's the harm in giving him a week to prove he's changed in the ways that matter?

After all, how do you resist the hot one . . .?

The Hot One- 5 Stars

Delaney is just going to have to move on over because I’ll be taking Tyler Nichols home with me!
This book is seriously adorable, funny, flirty, and so very sexy! I never find a book by this author that doesn’t make me giggle and then later, makes my panties melt right off.
Lauren Blakely is very talented at creating characters the reader develops strong emotions for. They are consistent in their personalities too, which makes a big difference in a book. If they constantly act out of character, it’s very jarring. But, this book moves smooth, fast-paced, and fun!

Tyler…how can you not fall for Tyler? It’s so clear that he was a huge jerk in the past, but right away, the author replaces that image with one of a big, sexy, sweetheart. From the moment he sees Delaney again he OWNS his mistake. He knows how he handled the situation was completely wrong and he’s determined to apologize. For such a strong dominant alpha to humble himself like that makes my ovaries go boom. SWOON. The way he goes about winning Delaney over is a perfect combination of sweet, a little domineering, and incredibly hot! And, he is hilarious.

Delaney is a spitfire. She’s full of life and if she were real, she’d be my best friend. Lol. I can’t blame her for taking her time in forgiving him. And, being wary of a repeat of the past is expected. But, she begins to soften before I could get frustrated with her character, instead I sympathized and then cheered her on. Although she makes some choices that made me want to wag my finger at her and say, “knock that off right now!” I still enjoyed her spunk, her shoe addiction ( because…shoes. Duh), and her relationship with her friends.

This book sizzles with the chemistry between Delaney and Tyler. Even before they fall into bed, the sexual tension is thick and every bit as alluring as the steamy scenes. This is something I’ve come to expect from Lauren Blakely and she does it magnificently.

Tyler Nichols. Oh. My. God. The title is definitely apropos. This man is over the top HOT in oh so many ways. The Hot One is a read-in-one-sitting kind of story.” ~ Naughty Girls and Their Books

Throne of Truth, the thrilling conclusion to Crown of Lies from New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, is now LIVE!


Throne of Truth by Pepper Winters Publication Date: February 28th, 2017 Genre: Contemporary Romance

Since my life changed for the second time and not necessarily for the better. Two years since I traded prison bars for streets and hunted a runaway who I’d met in an alley.
Since I forgot how to lie, woke to fists, and chased after the girl who’d been stolen from me.
To save her, rescue her, keep my lies intact. She looks at me full of hate. I look at her full of confession.
For our relationship to switch from mutual dislike to floundering with unknowns. I’ve hurt her. Now, she’s hurt me. I guess we’re even.
For her to listen, to see, to finally know who I am. The answer comes with hardship. The answer isn’t what she wants to hear.
For me to walk out the door.
For it all to be over.
