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

It's virtually impossible for me to turn down an installment of 1001 Dark Nights. I gobble them up like candy. Then to find one by the incomparable K. Bromberg... it was a must-read no-brainer!!

Ryder and Harper have always been at odds. During graduate school, it was an intense competition to see who would come out on top. Both of them were stubborn, intelligent and opinionated. It all ends with a kiss that seemed to solidify their attraction but nothing else happens and they purportedly move on with their lives.

Until years later when they're surprisingly given another opportunity to go head-to-head. Sparks fly almost instantaneously but that doesn't stop or distract them from the competition. May the best "person" win!

I really enjoyed the banter. I love watching rivals become so much more. Ryder was my fave and I think it's because he was not only clever and hot, but because he was also supportive and a man with integrity. I only wish there was more to the story so that I could see more of these two as a couple. They seemed to be on the cusp of something great!
