#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.

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.
