4.25 Stars
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.

SWEET RIVALRY is an adorable little enemies-to-lovers / 2nd-chance lovestory!

Two people who knew each other in college 13 years ago. Both kind of had a crush on the other, but they were also bitter enemies - both wanted to be the best in class.
But there was this one kiss on their last day, and both never really forgot about that, even though life took them to different sides of the country.
And now they're back together again - to bid on the same job! Same scenario again - just like 13 years ago. Still the same fighting and arguing and flirting and hating and loving!

But now they're both experienced grown-ups. They should be able to make a go of it this time around, right???

Read the novella to find out! 


I really enjoyed reading it. I was just over way too soon!!!
We have lots of adorable, funny, sexy, sparky and Hot-Bearded-Suit-Guy moments! And I even cried a few tears in the prologue!!! Great little romance!

Was there something that I didn't like...it was just too short. I expected more. I wanted to see Ryder's sister and brother-in-law. I wanted an epilogue. I wanted more, or faster sexy times. I really enjoyed reading it, but I just expected more. Which I know is stupid - you should never expect too much...And especially since I knew it was going to be a short story. But I still wanted more. ☺

SWEET RIVALRY was a very short but adorable 2nd chance lovestory with LOTS of sparkage and a verry hot & beared RYDER - who btw. is MINE - so go run to your nearest amazon to get your own!!!

ARC received for an honest review

I am loving the 1001 Nights series of novellas (not that I have read a lot of them, but loved when I have so far)

So it was a no brainer to read Sweet Rivalry - I mean hello it is a K Bromberg story! 

This is a short but sweet and sexy second chance (kinda story) that I really enjoyed reading. There was plenty of spark, of lust, of lingering looks - oh and sexy times.

For a short story, it did not feel rushed, there was enough background to make it not feel like insta-love.

But gah that ending. I want - no I NEED - more of Harper and Ryder. I need more pash rash/beard burn. I need more sexy tattooed men in suits.

Please Ms Bromberg, I want some more.


He takes a step toward me then hesitates, but before I can process anything else, his lips are on mine.
 And not just on mine––not just a brush of lips against lips—but I’m talking all in. Hands on my cheeks, tongue licking between my lips, body pressed against mine, groan in the back of his throat, type of all in.
 I don’t react at first. I’m stunned. Flabbergasted, my mind reeling from the anger to the  surprise to now this without any warning at all.
 This is Ryder.
 My rival.
 My supporter.
 My crush.
 The thoughts flicker that this is what I’ve wanted. But they soon shift to panic. To insecurity I don’t kiss well enough. That this is all a joke and I’m the butt of it.
 But then I feel. Everything. All at once.
 And I know this is real.
 It’s like I can’t catch my breath and have too much air all at the same time.
 My body is on fire. And not just from his touch but from that burn deep inside that feels like it’s exploding and imploding all at once.
 So this is what it feels like to really be kissed.
 It’s a fleeting thought before the sensations, the moment, the emotions, consume me whole.     
 His hands move my face to change the angle of the kiss. His fingertips on the line of my jaw singe my skin. His lips move expertly against mine, and all I can do is feel. All I can do is want.
 Thinking isn’t an option.
 The anger from before has morphed to want. The adrenaline has recharged with desire.
 There is no rivalry.
 There is no graduation ceremony tomorrow I’m missing to catch my flight.
 There is no panic over if I’ll ever see him again.
 It’s just him.
 And me.
 The scent of his cologne in my nose. The heat of his body against mine. The taste of hunger in his kiss.

Stalk Kristy on:

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 (Releasing 10/4/16)), and a short story titled UnRaveled. She is currently finishing up Sweet Cheeks a standalone novel out at the end of 2016.
Her plans for 2017 include a sports romance duet (The Player (#1) and The Catch (#2)) and the Everyday Heroes series (Cuffed (#1), Combust (#2), and Cockpit (#3). She’s also writing a novella for the 1,001 Dark Night series that will be out in February 2017.
She loves to hear from her readers so make sure you check her out on social media.
