He’s the love of her life, but he doesn’t know it.
She’s his one moment of sacrifice in a lifetime of survival.

He was damaged and wild, but resilient.
She’s always been obedient. Now she’s restless.

Home for the summer between college and med school, Pearl Torres Frank knows two things: Boyce Wynn is the embodiment of everything she should run from, and everything she wants to run to. Rebellious and loud. Unconcerned with society’s opinion of him. Passionate. Strong. Dangerous.

And one more trait he hides from everyone but her:

Sweet.


My Thoughts

Sweet by Tammara Webber is an oh-my-goodness, I loved it, couldn't stop reading it, didn't want the book to end read. From the get-go, I loved the chemistry between Boyce and Pearl - they are best friends, protectors, antagonists/instigators, lovers, and soulmates. Their love for each other is evident on page after page. They deserve to be with the loves of their loves and this is their story of figuring it out.

It had been a while since I read Easy and Breakable and wasn't quite sure I remembered Boyce from those books. But as I continued to read, (and with some flashback scenes) all of the pieces started falling into place and then I wanted to kick myself for not remembering Boyce and then I wanted to go back and reread Breakable because I wanted to read Lucas's story again. (It's funny how that happens.)

As easy as it is to claim a book-boyfriend crush on Boyce, I am just as fond of Pearl. She's a girl with some gumption - that's the best way to describe her. She makes decisions based on her needs and wants and goes after what she thinks she deserves. I loved reading the book from her point of view and knowing what she thought about where her life was leading and how she wanted to make her way in the world.

This must be acknowledged - Tammara Webber knows how to write a love scene. Let me tell you! They are exquisite - there was tenderness, and wanting and humor. It's just the kind of intimacy that I enjoy reading. Whew! 

Sweet is a book that I wish I could read it again for the first time. The love that Boyce and Pearl have for each other is what great romances are all about. Even though I can't read it again for the first time, I will reread it again for sure and not just the sweet and sexy parts.

About the Author:


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of EASY and BREAKABLE (Contours of the Heart series - NA), as well BETWEEN THE LINES, WHERE YOU ARE, GOOD FOR YOU and HERE WITHOUT YOU (Between the Lines series - YA/NA).

I'm a hopeful romantic who adores novels with happy endings, because there are enough sad endings in real life. Before writing full-time, I was an undergraduate academic advisor, economics tutor, planetarium office manager, radiology call center rep, and the palest person to ever work at a tanning salon. I married my high school sweetheart, and I'm Mom to three adult kids and four very immature cats.
