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:

The Review

Tammara Webber’s SWEET is romantic and sexy and so hot it sizzles. It has a love story that will make readers sigh and smile and swoon. It has characters they will adore, hope for, cheer for, fall for. And it reveals a backstory that will capture their hearts and make them wish for a happy ending for Pearl and Boyce.

From the moment he pulled her from an ocean that nearly claimed her and she opened her eyes and looked up at him, Boyce Wynn loved Pearl Torres Frank. And she loved him. But in the sixteen years since, he’s never had the courage to reveal his true feelings. And neither has she.

She was the one person who looked at him as if he was someone. Saving her was the one great thing he had done in his life. He just wished he was good enough to be worthy of this girl who was smart and beautiful and meant for a future he could never imagine being a part of.

He was the one person who really saw her, who knew who she was and who she wanted to be. He saved her life and she owed him everything. She just wished she was the kind of girl he wanted as more than a friend, someone to flirt with, someone to protect.

Boyce Wynn is charming, strong, and sexy as hell. He’s the good guy with a bad boy vibe. With his past, his childhood, his family, his loss, he could have easily turned out like his parents, become the stereotype. But he is honest and hard-working and couldn’t be a better man than he already is.

Pearl Frank is kind and intelligent and loyal and driven. With all that she has been given, the advantages she has, the possibilities she has, the friends she has, she could have easily been someone who pretended her past never existed. But she loves her hometown, her family, her friends and she’s not someone who could walk away from those who did so much for her.

Alternating between Boyce and Pearl’s points of view, Tammara Webber reveals a love story that has been sixteen years in the making. It’s a love story that’s sad and sweet and angst-filled and delectable, full of missed opportunities as well as stolen kisses, secret embraces and steamy encounters.

The author draws readers in by bringing together two unlikely characters – Boyce with his charm, his confidence, his flirty banter and his cheesy yet adorable lines, and Pearl with her quiet reserve, her shyness, her bookish intelligence – and making their connection one readers will want to see grow stronger. She captivates with passages that are filled with heat, others that are beautiful and moving and heartrending, others that are fun and flirty, and others that are nerve-wracking and nail-biting.

SWEET is a fantastic addition to this series that can be read in order, out of order or on its own. It checks all the boxes that readers have come to expect from a New Adult romance – well-developed characters, well-written romance, scorching hot love scenes, conflict, angst, heartbreak, and an ending that wraps things up and leaves no loose ends.

And it delivers so much more – making this a story not to be missed by fans of the genre and readers who enjoy gorgeous writing, memorable characters, breathtaking romance, and love scenes hot enough to make them melt.
