Again another awesome story by Maya Banks. I love love love the Sweet series & this book is no exception. One thing that I loved about this book was that it was kind of vanilla, ok a lot, but it was no less hot or emotional as the other in the series. And to be honest, it was a refreshing. Not that I didn't love the other, but not everyone is into BDSM, so this gives you that awesome story telling of Maya Banks and yet super hot love scenes. I want to be part of this circle of friends, and am sad that aren't real people. That's how much I love this book. 4 1/2 stars!

Former Marine Phillip Armstrong is at the end of his rope when the antics of his top pop star Lyric Jones led to the firing or quitting of her security staff. The record executive calls in the marine motto of never leave a comrade behind when he asks his brother in arms Pop Malone to provide personal protection to Lyric while she is on "vacation" in Houston. Pop informs his stunned son Connor he will take care of the music diva. While his sister Faith smirks, Connor objects pointing out that they install security systems not provide bodyguards. Malone and Jones detest each other at first sight and state so to one another, but he loathes her nasty manager Paul much more. However, under their veneer of disgust is also a desire neither wants to admit as he is hard from her first scornful remark and she is upset with his obvious disappointment when he gazed past her glitzy veneer into who she truly is. Neither wants a second engagement, but the two marines pressure both. At the Cattleman's, she kisses him, leaving both shocked with need. As they fall in love, a betrayal to the media exposing her past leaves Lyric distrusting Connor. The latest "Sweet" heated romance (see Sweet Temptation and Sweet Seduction) is a wonderful contemporary starring a caring male and a flawed female whose childhood leaves her unable to ever be alone. The story line is a commonly used theme, but the lead couple and the support cast including the villain make for a fresh brisk tale; as Maya Banks insists that a powerful mental healer is sharing love.

I have read almost all of Maya Banks books, and while this is definitely one of her tamer books in terms of sex, it was just as good as all the others. The characters are well developed and easy to fall in love with. If you like Ms. Banks books then you will most likely like this one, and if you have never read her books, this is a great read, although some of the conversations might be easier to follow if you read the others in the series first.

This book was definetly not as wild as the rest of the books in the sweet series. I really enjoyed this book. It was a very romantic, well written love story. So overall nice read even if it was missing some pages of heat.

I enjoyed this 5th book in the Sweet series. I liked that Lyric wasn't looking for a strong man, but boy did she find one in Connor. I like the way Maya Banks develops her characters and the relationships between them. Great, fun, read!

I love the whole Sweet series. They were steamy but also very enlighting. I laughed and cried. The women in these books had me realize that this is the way real friendship should be. I will continue to read books from this author. Thank you for sharing with us Maya.

I love Lyric and Connor. They are perfect for each other. Maya Banks has crafted yet another wonderful story for the Sweet Series. The entire gang is back. This story is very initimate and touching. It is a wonderfully written story about two people who fall in love with their opposites. It's a wonderful read and I highly recommend it.

I have enjoyed the whole series but i really enjoyed this one. It was very tame compared to couple of others especially Micahs story. This one had some great sassy moments and when all the women got together it was hilarious. It was agreat love story. I recommend it highly.

I enjoy the continuation of characters from the previous books in the Sweet series as well as the twists and turns of the main characters in this one. Ms. Banks always leaves you wanting to read more so I'm about to start on #6. Highly recommend this entire series!

15 chapters with 0 sex and 0 kink. When there was finally sex, it was all vanilla. The peril was snuffed out quickly and gave no meaning to the overall story except for an excuse to sequester the main characters together. We received no further depth to Conner who after 4 books is still a mystery as to what makes him tick. I sure hope #6 isn't this dull.
