Product description

Product Description

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 am loving the 1001 Nights series of novellas (not that I have read a lot of them, but loved when I have so far)

So it was a no brainer to read Sweet Rivalry - I mean hello it is a K Bromberg story!

This is a short but sweet and sexy second chance (kinda story) that I really enjoyed reading. There was plenty of spark, of lust, of lingering looks - oh and sexy times.

For a short story, it did not feel rushed, there was enough background to make it not feel like insta-love.

But gah that ending. I want - no I NEED - more of Harper and Ryder. I need more pash rash/beard burn. I need more sexy tattooed men in suits.

Please Ms Bromberg, I want some more.

When the loving and protective Ryder Rodgers burst onto the scene in Sweet Cheeks there was something intriguing about him, he was at once the typical big brother protective to the enth degree and jovial and fun loving in the way only a big brother can be, but in Bromberg's new novella we see the sexy side of Mr Rodgers, a man who is confident and suave and downright dirty when he wants to be. He's grown out of his pretty boy high school stage into a mover and shaker in the world of capital works and consultancy.

Harper Denton was once a gangly, shy young girl, suffering from nervousness and the typical afflictions of any high school student until she went head to head with Ryder Rodgers, when under his cool gaze she found herself and was able to exhibit a cool, calm collectiveness that would benefit her in her future career. Shining brightly and climbing the ranks in a male dominated industry takes talent and perseverance, having a sister in law who is Project Manager in Capital Works and Construction I know all to well the kinds of misogynist attitudes you have to face, proving your worth is one thing, but constantly fighting patriarchy can be demoralising to say the least. When Harper rose to the top of the ranks she was ready to take on the world, until one decision left her floundering in a world she no longer knew, now armed with the ticket back into the world of corporate construction consultancy she'll let nothing or no one step in her way.

With a past behind them and a big ticket job on the line, Ryder and Harper will go head to head to see who is the best candidate for the job.

I love the 1001 Dark Nights books, particularly when the novellas are written by some of my fave authors - and this one was no exception.

An enemies to lovers story, I was hooked from the beginning - instantly loving both Harper & Ryder & their banter. From this point I knew things were only going to heat up further, in and out of the bedroom.

The story is well developed & the pace is great. The dialogue is witty, sassy & you can feel the chemistry between our leads pulse off the page.

Ryder is hot as all get out & gave me a much deeper appreciation of the benefits of a bearded lover... hello, beard-burn!

Harper is smart, focused & driven with a just a touch of sass - exactly the type of heroine I love reading & the type of heroine K. writes so very well.

Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Sweet Stars 1 March 2017
By mary/Delish, Devine and All Mine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sweet Rivalry is an uber-angsty yet delightfully steamy, sexy novella from K. Bromberg. A quick read that leaves you wanting much, much more of Ryder, gah, and Harper!!

Ryder and Harper are both furiously competitive and after a 13-year post college gap find themselves pitted against one another once again. When Harper returns to California to bid for a construction job the last thing that enters her mind is the sudden unexpected reunion with Ryder Rogers…. her college nemesis. ....and secret crush!

As the two come face to face it sets in motion the same tit-for-tat banter from their college days. Harper is a ballsy, tough as nails woman working in a man’s world. She’s a little powerhouse that will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

The thing that Harper didn’t plan on was the feelings for Ryder that would surface. Memories of that kiss 13 years ago, that rocked her world. Trying not to let this cloud her thoughts would prove to be much harder than imagined.

Especially when all she found herself thinking of was Ryder and his beard and those tats and that kiss all those years ago. Even though Ryder could push her buttons it was the sexual tension that kept them both on edge. I loved the banter that pushed and pulled that intense tension between them. I loved Harper’s resolve to get the job done with the ultimate. #RewardSex

But what happens in that moment of weakness when they can no longer ignore the white-hot heat between them?

Let’s just say that we figure out what the meaning of the term #Beardburn! And how could it not leave you swooning for Ryder?

What a super read Sweet Read is. ~sigh~

My only suggestion is that we need more Ryder and Harper!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Undeniable chemistry, healthy and spicy rivalry, strong capable woman and sexy as sin hero. 1 March 2017

In a few tags first : undeniable chemistry, healthy and spicy rivalry, strong capable woman and sexy as sin hero.

Now, some meat about the story (pun intended as it was hawt!).

This is a short novella written by K Bromberg in the 1001 Dark Nights series.
Harper and Ryder were rivals at college. Being utterly competitive and sharp as a knife Harper dominated Ryder, she was always on top … Sorry, sorry many innuendos here but the book is filled with them to my great pleasure.
So they exchanged a very hot kiss thirteen years ago and Haper left Ryder immediately. No, no he was not a bad kisser she just had her whole new life planned in another state.
Thirteen years late Harper is back in California to enter a secret bid in the construction world. Waiting in the security line she’s ogling a fin @ss in a suit dreaming about sex reward once she’ll win the bid. See, Harper is a shark. A woman in a man’s world but she’s eating unsuspecting suits for breakfast and spit their ties when she’s won. She’s just the best.
I adored her determination, her confidence and competitive mind. She knows what she wants and goes right to the jugular. You have to admire a woman walking like a queen when wearing a security helmet on a construction site while wearing a pencil skirt and pink high heels!
Of course said sexy suit she’s admiring turns to be none other than her former rival: Ryder.
They’ll both compete again and sparks will fly! Who will take control?
I loved the chemistry it nearly made me combust on the spot and Ryder was perfect for the role of sexy and smart business man: bearded, wearing glasses, sporting tattoos and a tone body under his crisp suit.
The story was rather short but their oral sparing (I speak about their banter, take your mind out of the gutter!) was really well done and funny. K. Bromberg gave us enough details to know Harper and Ryder so we could enjoy the ride.

So if you like it short (the story I mean), hot and playful I would recommend this novella in a heartbeat.

Sorry I’m playing naughty girl today!!! All that foreplay in the office just contaminated my innocent mind :-)

Sweet Rivalry (1001 Dark Nights) by K Bromberg
4 stars!!!

“Tell me what to do, Harper.”

It’s a quickie, but a goodie and I never thought I would see the day that K Bromberg could condense her words to 120 pages.

It is hard to really connect with characters in such few pages but K Bromberg managed to spark that connection with Sweet Rivalry. While we are treated to a smidgeon of their back story it was just enough to whet the appetite and have you itching to see just what was in store for Ryder and Harper.

Ryder and Harper were bitter rivals in grad school, both were fantastic at what they did, self-assured, opinionated and highly competitive. These two fuelled one another along, to get better, to be better and more importantly to win. Their fierce rivalry though gave way to an undercurrent of sexual tension of which the culmination of was one kiss. That kiss left its mark though, but when would these two cross paths again?

“The sweet rivalry between us just became a whole lot sweeter.”

Over a decade later, walking into an office to compete for a huge construction project Ryder and Harper come face to face once again. Rivals once again, but it seems that sizzle is still there and the way that these two just look at one and other, combustion isn’t far away.

“I got off thinking about you last night.”

These two were seriously hot together and the undercurrent of sexual tension was captured perfectly. This was a quick light read, perfectly paced and with fantastic banter that will have you smiling from ear to ear. But more than that, this was a story of morals, trust and believing in doing the right thing. No matter how many years spent apart, some things are worth a lot more than a wedge of green.

Totally loved it.

Squeeze!!! The best things do come in small packages. I am really loving all these short stories from the 1001 Dark Nights. I was so excited to see a story from K. Bromberg and once again she nailed it. I love this ridiculously cute, sexy, second-chance romance.

Ryder and Harper were classmates and fierce rivals in college. They are both smart, driven and always try to best each other in everything. On their last competitive debate Harper bests Ryder but she is pissed at Ryder for the way he “mocked” her during the debate. So, what’s a man to do when a woman is fuming at him? He kisses her senseless … Harper is confused and breathless afterward. But she does not stick around long enough to find out what is brewing between them. Harper moves to NY, Ryder to LA. Fast forward a decade later, Harper finds her way to LA on a work assignment. Turns out she is bidding for a contract that Ryder is also competing for. Once again the two are facing off for a contract that will really advance their respective careers. The stakes are high – they both need to focus but there are too many distractions. Ryder is all tattoos and “beard burn” potential :) and Harper is sassy, sexy in pencil skirts and fuck-me heels. Let the game begin and maybe the best man or woman win!!!

K. Bromberg did such an amazing job with the chemistry between Ryder and Harper - hostile and flirty at first. Then all passionate kisses, steamy office sex, and sweet romance. What Ryder did at the end was totally swoony. They guy is not only a sex God but also loyal and a stand-up guy. I really enjoyed this story – short and sweet, sexy, and romantic.

There are feelings I have while waiting on Bromberg to release her next book...

And I found this quote in this book that fit my feelings soooo perfectly...

"Hunger. Want. Need. and Desire!!!"

Annnd you can not tell me if you have read her books before, that these are not the feelings you have for her books, and especially while waiting on her next release...Right?? lol

Well guess what?? She just released a new book!!! Sweet Rivalry It is a short story, kind of a tease but OMG it is HOT and FUN and I will take it!!!

Ladies, ya'll are sooo going to fall in love with Harper and Ryder. They were academic rivals. Harper had a college crush on Ryder and he never knew. But there was a Kiss..A mistake of a kiss and she would never forget. She moves to New York, he stays in town. They never cross paths again until many years later. They both are after the biggest contract for both of their employers. A bidding war over who will win the contract. Each are the best in their own companies. But when they see each other again, sparks fly, old feelings come back, how will they compete against each other? Well you will just have to read the book to find out how it all goes down.

I gave this book 5 Stars!!! This book gets you hot under the collar fast...and I mean smoken Hawt!!! I read this book in one day, I just devoured it!! Anddd I want more!!! OMG I hope we get more of Harper and Ryder soon, cuz you know I am greedy like that!! lol
