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.
4 out of 5 stars
Harper Denton was always the best performer in class. Her classmates would be left in the dust. But one of her peers was her biggest supporter, and he always pushed her to go farther.
Unfortunately, things between them didn't go far romantically, and they went their separate ways after college.
Harper left for New York, and Ryder stayed in California.
Years later, the two meet again to win over a client, and Harper and Ryder are thrown into a competition that is more than just business.
Ryder is the perfect man. He isn't intimidated by Harper's intelligence and strength. Sweet Rivalry is a quick steamy read that will leave you panting!
