Review by Wendy ♥ Sweet Time by Nina Lane

A Review by Wendy
4 The Value of Hope and Surprises
* * * * 
Spoiler Free

Ah, the feeling of Hope.... We hope things go well...We hope our life will be good...We hope about big ideas and the most intimate...and we do it naturally. It can make us a positive person with the idea there is the possibility of whatever we are focused on...But when there seems to be an immovable obstacle blocking all this hope...It can cause either extreme pain or...a challenge to climb that obstacle...

Sweet Time (Sugar Rush #4) by Nina Lane addresses the idea of hope, love and where does one fit in...
This is part of a series, however, I never felt lost or confused.

So back to that obstacle to climb...It is the wickedly handsome alpha chief of security Gavin Knight. If you look in the dictionary under Focused...You would see a picture of him. He started Knight Security after 6 tours of duty. He came home after being injured. He also had his own burden of PTSD. Gavin had worked through his injuries and complete control of all things seemed to be the way to handle his demons. He took his position as head of security for his best friend's company Sugar Rush Candy seriously. Nothing would ever harm those under his care.

Mia Donovan is having a moment... she is going through the motions of major enjoyment...relishing ever single burst of flavor from her very own special coffee drink of caramel-chocolate mochaccino with extra chocolate, a shot of toffee syrup, vanilla whipped cream, and rainbow sprinkles.

Mia knew how to appreciate the "sweet things" in life. She was able to be there for her friends... many who have reached the point in their lives where they had found their purpose, careers and best of all... their person. Mia is sincerely happy for all of them...yet at the same time... she is seeing that her life seems stuck...

Stuck doing the world's most boring job... in a cubicle at an Insurance company...
Stuck suffering endless stapling and collating because her college major isn't employable friendly.

She is also stuck pining for a man who she has been taunting the best she can... without cracking a smile from his face...Gavin Knight is everything that cause Mia a thrill just by looking at him. She has tried over the last year to get a reaction from him... and nothing...

Tight sweaters...Nothing...
Short almost obscene skirts...Nothing
Not even flowered leggings that show off her legs and tush...Nothing

Well, Mia feels she is done... She will just occupy her time with her friend's high profile wedding. Mia has collected binders worth of details for this event... everything will be perfect... and Mia has no time to think about Gavin and his chiseled jaw and rock hard chest... Nope, no more.

Well, life decides to shake things up for Gavin and Mia. Gavin is in charge of the security for this wedding and he will have to work side by side with Mia. Mia, who wanted to move on from her attraction for Gavin will now have to deal with him up close and personal...

Little did she know, all her teasing, tempting and sexual taunting has been driving him crazy... crazy with nasty, dirty, controlling thoughts all about this pretty fairy princess...Gavin has been wanting Mia from the start...

Their first meeting causes Mia to fight back when Gavin starts to dictate what he needs for the event and how she should just jump to and do what he says...Mia hasn't forgotten how he has been ignoring her...But as they work together, things become intense... and finally, yes, finally Gavin cannot fight the overwhelming desire he has for her...

Yum Yum

This is a story that has lots of main plot, plus sub-plot. We get some tension and the need to protect. We also get the arc of both Mia and Gavin learning and realizing who they are and could be...How they are better together.

This was an enjoyable romp... with yummy sexy times, a touch of suspense and strong ending. It left me with a sweet taste.
