Lauren Harper wanted four things.
And to annihilate Roman Pierce.
Sure, he was a smooth, smart and sexy attorney who made the senior partners at their law firm cream their pants. But he was also an annoying cocky jerk who she’d been competing with since they had both been hired over a year ago.
And Lauren didn’t care how amazing his smile was or how hot his body was underneath that suit—the firm-sponsored fun run had a lot to answer for—he was a ruthless, ambitious prick who would stop at nothing to climb the corporate ladder. He’d even climb over her given half the chance. Sadly, she’d probably enjoy that.
That wasn’t what she was supposed to be thinking.
She did not want him climbing over or under her, or doing anything else to her.
He was the enemy. Destroying him was the only option.
Wiping that smug, beautiful grin off his gorgeous, obnoxious face, a bonus.
Now, if she could just keep her objective in check and obliterate him before he did the same to her.
About the Author
T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia. With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of "plan" has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She'd tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn't expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy. When she isn't filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she's living her own reality show in the 'burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley. She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.

I love every book I read from T Gephart! I really enjoyed this book. I loved the banter between Lauren and Roman. They are awesome together. I cannot wait to see what T Gephart writes next.
Love this series...hope there will be more! Lauren and Roman are perfect together
Lauren Harper is a successful lawyer who loves her career and the firm she works for. Even her obnoxious co-worker can't do anything to bring her down... in fact their rivalry makes her work even harder just to top him whenever she can... Until one day when Roman Pierce changes tactics, and he shows a completely different side of himself. Now Lauren just can't stop thinking about kissing her rival... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This was a really good read! Lauren and Roman's banter was delightful. I freaking loved how Lauren never backs down and she is a strong woman who not only knows her self worth, but is not afraid to stand on her own. Roman gives as good as he gets from Lauren, and their arguments clearly get the both of them hot and bothered. The story was fun and engaging, and the sex was super hot in only the way a perfect antagonistic love/hate relationship can be. Lauren and Roman were a great couple, who start out with similar views on marriage and relationships. Will their fling run it's course or will it irrevocably complicate their lives and careers... I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
#1 Rival by T. Gephart is a standalone in the # Series. The other books are #Crush, and #Player. Meet Lauren Harper. She´s a driven junior associate at a law firm and wants respect, success and her rival´s head on a platter. Roamn Pierce is a junior associate at the same law firm, he´s gorgeous, smart, cunning and makes her life hell. He´s Mr. Teflon, nothing seems to faze him, a brilliant lawyer, deadly in the courtroom. And then they get a case assigned to both of them - and now the fun begins. Lean back and enjoy. #1 Rival is a witty and fun read. The story sucked me in from the beginning. I love how they bicker and banter, fight and make up. The war these two wage is highly entertaining to read about. He palys her like a fiddle and makes her spitting mad - and vice versa. Before #1 Rival my favorite book by T. Gephart was Train Wreck, but now, sorry Eve and Logan, it´s #1 Rival. I can´t say how much I love this book. I recommend it and give 5 beautiful stars.
