If this book taught me anything it was that beard burn is an actual thing and also that even if I don't fully understand what's going on with certain aspects of a story, I can still totally enjoy a book.
This is a short story featuring Harper and Ryder. There has been a competetive nature to the pair since college and things are no different years later when their worlds collide once more when both find themselves competing for the same business opportunity.
To be honest, I didn't entirely get what it was they were working towards in a business sense, but that really didn't matter to me because what worked was the chemistry between the couple. There was plenty of sexual tension, there was just the right amount of resistance between each other that made the build up to a reunion, pretty damn hot.
My only wish is that we get to read about Harper and Ryder in future books because theres a definite feeling of 'Over too soon' with this book, but a great, quick read all the same.

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.
