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 encyclopedia of sex, and she’s ready to do some research. 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.

Any time I pick up a Nina Lane book I know that I am in for a treat. Her writing is top-notch, her love stories are swoony (especially her heroes), and let’s be honest, her books are the hottest ones out there.

Sweet Surrender was a super-cute friends-to-lovers romance. Kate is Luke Stone’s (CEO of Sugar Rush) executive assistant. She is career-focused, driven and pretty much married to her job.   The one thing missing in her life? A boyfriend, and specifically, her crush Miles would fit the job perfectly. There is an issue though, she’s a but socially awkward and doesn’t really know what she’s doing.

Enter Tyler Stone…the youngest heir to the Sugar Rush Candy Company. He’s not like his other siblings, he’s a bit of a wild child. But there is definitely more than what meets the eye to Tyler. I think he’s a but misunderstood.  After his latest fiasco goes awry, his father puts him to work in the company’s library.

“Just be Kate Darling. If that’s not everything a man could dream of, then he doesn’t deserve you.”

While working together, Tyler and Kate come up with an “arrangement”. Tyler will help Kate land Miles while giving her some lessons. It’s mostly a friends-with-benefits relationship that is supposed to be feeling-free.

Of course, these two have EXPLOSIVE chemistry. Seriously Nina, how do you write the best sexy times?!?! Okay, besides their sexiness, these two just jive on all levels. Eventually they both realize they want more. But can Kate risk her career for love? Can she tame the bad boy?

“Love was about finding someone who fit you perfectly because of your differences.”

I really liked both Kate and Tyler. Tyler at first is this wild man, but while put to the task of fixing up the library, he finally gets some direction in life. I think that Kate has a bit to do with it as well. In return, Tyler shows Kate that she can let her hair down. That there is more to life than her job.

If you are looking for a fun, sweet, and sexy friends-to-lovers romance, I recommend Sweet Surrender. This is part of a series, but I promise you can read it as a standalone. I’m also excited to see what’s next in this series!
