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.

A sexy and enticing quick read that will make you wish for beard burn! Sweet Rivalry is a deliciously seductive novella, full of sexually charged tension and provocative banter! Ryder and Harper's shared history, along with their current situation, has always been a sparring match of words. Not just an epic battle of who can deliver the best taunting, but the need to possess power over the other. After an unexpected and mind-blowing kiss in college, that was left unresolved, Ryder and Harper are reunited years later and are once again pitted against each other. And when old feelings resurface and a kiss that was never forgotten is all either of them can think about, can these two set aside their emotions and focus on a career-making opportunity?...or will they give into their needs that have only grown over time, consequences be damned? This novella is hot and completely erotic! Ryder and Harper's dynamic together sparks instantly, and continues throughout the entire story. Their banter with each other drives the story and their undeniable attraction toward one another makes their connection irresistible and inevitable. The only thing I didn't care for was how abrupt the ending seemed. I was really hoping for just a little bit more from these two charismatic characters, kind of like a "where are they now?" type of ending. Overall, I very much enjoyed this novella! Engaging and steamy, Sweet Rivalry gives office romances a whole new meaning!
