Book Review – Sweet Rivalry (1001 Dark Nights) by K. Bromberg

Short but mighty!! It’s amazing how satisfying this novella was. Sexy, with a good amount of sexual tension makes Sweet Rivalry a MUST read and a perfect book for in between. LOVED IT!!!


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.


Expected publication: February 28th 2017


Sweet Rivalry was my second book in the 1001 Dark Nights series. For me, novellas are the perfect book for a quick read in between, for lunches and late nights, or the perfect book for on the go. It’s such a nice change to know I won’t need half a day to finish it. 😀


All of the above described Sweet Rivalry to the dot.

I’ve come to love books that are about a couple in hot pursuit of the same goal – and consequently in hot pursuit of each other – with  a healthy dose of competition.

Sweet Rivalry had all that in spades.

Ryder and Harper had known each other for years. Their rivalry started in college and when they met again, returned just as fierce as adults.

This time they were competing for a construction project – may the better one win!

Working so closely together had Harper and Ryder on edge. The sexual tension was palpable. Long buried memories resurfaced and their attraction reignited.

This time it was all about the end game.

I believe a great novella only works well in it’s limited pages when the main characters already know each other. And Sweet Rivalry was the best example.

Honestly, this novella was pretty perfect. I din’t feel like anything was missing. Their sexual attraction was believable, and felt genuine. The sexual tension was through the roof HOT!!! And both, Harper and Ryder, were wonderful and likable characters.

I had a BLAST reading this book.

And can only recommend it to anyone that is looking for a quick but satisfying read.
