Sweet Rivalry by K. Bromberg…..ARC Review



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.

My Review:

Sweet Rivalry is the newest release from author K. Bromberg and is the fourth in the 2017 1,001 Dark Nights line-up.  I always love a second chance romance and this was no exception.  It was fantastic!

You’ve gotta love when an old flame comes sauntering back into a characters life and turns things all upside-down.  Poor Harper wasn’t expecting the sexy man she was ogling the morning of a defining moment in her career to be a man she left behind in the dust….Ryder.  And what comes about after this chance meeting is pure magic! The back and forth banter between these two is just delicious and I loved how both gave it as good as they took it. Harper is one tough cookie and I love that she doesn’t back down from a challenge.  She’s a gal I would totally want to hang out with.  Ryder is sex on a stick and I loved that he had a soft and tender side beneath his sexy surface.  Together they are amazing and I’m so glad they got this second chance at love.

Whether you’re already a K. Bromberg fan or are new to her, I know you will love Sweet Rivalry as much as I did!

Five Loves

About the author:

New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.

She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.

On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift), and a novella (UnRaveled).
