Book Review, Giveaway: Sweet Surrender by Nina Lane 2

Are you ready for one seriously hot librarian? SWEET SURRENDER is available now!


He’s an encyclopedia of sex. She’s ready to do some research.

Super-efficient Kate Darling needs lessons in love. As executive assistant to the CEO of the Sugar Rush Candy Company, Kate knows everything about organization and nothing about relationships. Then she literally falls into the arms of Tyler Stone, youngest Sugar Rush heir and notorious bad boy.

After a colossal screw-up involving a pretty girl and a stolen speedboat, Tyler is facing the punishment of an actual job. His father has sentenced him to organize the company library, which is Tyler’s definition of cruel and unusual punishment. But if he can convince industrious, resourceful Kate to help him, he’ll earn his release in no time.

Kate is no fool. Tyler is an authority on sex, and she wants to learn. She’ll help him with the library—if he’ll teach her about the erotic side of romance.

Cataloging, alphabetizing, and metadata collide in a storm of lust, sweat, and dirty talk as Kate and Tyler get to work on both the library and each other. But when he starts falling for her, their hot affair will be one for the books.









My Rating:



Favorite Quotes:


Her voice was warm and throaty, like she’d swallowed a butterscotch.


It’s a quest now…He’s the one man who hasn’t paid attention to her, so now it’s become her personal Mordor. He’s the one true ring.


Kate could take lessons from Mia on how to land Miles Norwood, though for some reason Tyler didn’t like the idea of Kate thrusting out her cleavage and batting her eyelashes. Plus she’d probably do it so badly that Norwood would ask her if she had a backache or something in her eye.


Can we stop talking about her? The memory of Savannah is like a lingering fart smell in my brain.


I tried a thong once and felt like I had permanent wedgie… I don’t find sexy underwear very comfortable.


Love wasn’t about finding someone who shared all your qualities. That would be far too boring. Love was about finding someone who fit you perfectly because of your differences. Like eggs and bacon. Sun and moon. Heart and soul.


My Review:


Sweet Surrender is the third book in the Sugar Rush series – which features a successful family-owned candy company. I had no prior experience with the previous books, nor did I need to as the story has solid legs and quite capable of standing alone, although I enjoyed it so much I feel compelled to go back and read the first two. The premise was appealing and the storyline was insightful, smartly amusing, entertaining, well-crafted, and so atomically sensual I was fearing possible dehydration by the time I reached the sweet HEA ending. Nina Lane has mad skills and is a clever wordsmith who writes top-shelf smut. Oh, my!   This story was salaciously steamy, yet done with class.

The characters of Kate and Tyler were oddly endearing, appealing, and well fleshed out. Kate was brilliant, efficient, hard-working, and more than a bit aloof and stand-offish with people she did not know, and she did not know anyone despite successfully working at her job for several years. Kate was highly structured and organized, but socially awkward and clueless about the dynamics of relationships or romance. Tyler was a rich, irresponsible, and immature man-child, although a highly social creature.   He was circling the drain and out of steam following his latest antics and aware that he was on his last chance after being cut off from his trust fund and unable to support his play or pay off his damages unless he went to work for his family’s company. Kate and Tyler reached a mutually beneficial agreement to form an alliance and learn from each other’s strengths. Their professional and private collaborations soon took on an intensity that produced volcanic levels of heat and appeared to be sucking all the battery power from my kindle – as I couldn’t put it down.  I so love research and candy making.
