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.
Oh boy did this novella make me feel like I had a school girl crush!!!! I absolutely loved "sweet Rivalry." From that fantastic opening chapter set way back when, to the present day and that build up to my first introduction to the delectable, the delightful, the oh so freakin' hot Ryder Rodgers. Ladies, I'm not kidding when I say, from the moment he made an appearance I found myself getting all giddy and giggly and excited!!!! Seriously, I would happily take "beard burn" from this suited, booted and tatted sexy as sin Mr "oh so confident" god like specimen of a male. Yes I know I'm really bigging him up but my heart is still doing double time at the very thought of him!!!!

take a ride on that unicorn she's found every once in a while."
"Sweet Rivalry" was such a fantastic novella. The story line was brilliant and so funny and I absolutely loved the main characters. Ryder was just to die for (did I mention that already??? Lol) and Harper was such a strong leading lady. She really did give as good as she got, taking no prisoners in a male dominated world. The banter between the two was equally brilliant and I read most of this book was the biggest grin on my face. The love/ hate thing these two had going on was so entertaining but it was the tension and the anticipation of what was to come that was so tangible, my heart was doing metaphorical cart wheels and my stomach was in a constant state of flutters. It was crazy but I just couldn't contain my excitement.
"Tell me what to do Harper."
"Sweet Rivalry" really was a great little novella. The only downside was turning the last page. I wanted more. So much more. Yes I know, I was greedy but trust me, when you read this book, you'll know exactly where I'm coming from. I rated Harper and Ryder's book ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
