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 walksed 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.
When he heard her voice, he was brought back to years before. To the bitter taste of being second best. But the woman who met 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 was gorgeous and bright wouldn't distract him. This time Ryder was determined to be the one on top. But not if Harper could help it.
