I loved it.    I adored Easy and Breakable.  This was just as wonderful.  I eagerly await more from you!

(3.5 stars) I loved Easy. I really liked Unbreakable. I liked Sweet. I liked the theory of Boyce and Pearl's connection and how they always had each others backs even when it was unexpectedly. Yet, Sweet just didn't have the same impact on me that Easy did. Even though they have a connection I think for me it was their lack of interaction and only speaking sporadically especially when they were older. But nevertheless it's a good edition to the series.

Wow, wow, wow! I am falling more and more in love with Tammara Webber's writing – one book at a time. Her latest novel, "Sweet", is an absolutely enthralling page-turner; I read this on a flight from Frankfurt (Germany) to Dallas (TX, USA), and despite several power naps and LOTS of food (seriously, I had never had as much food on a flight before!), I was done with the book before we ever got close to touching down in Texas (I think we were about three hours from Dallas when I turned the last page with a content little sigh). And as much as I hate to admit it – though if you'd been one of the people on my flight, you'd probably already know anyways – this novel actually made me shed a 'Sweet' tear or two, much to the confusion of the man sitting behind me. This, however, was not necessarily due to the scenes bearing tragic or sadness, but thanks to the overwhelming cuteness overload that hit me in some of the most unexpected moments. "Sweet" could have just as well been called “Sweet and Spicey“ – HOT, Sweet & Spicey – because the book's like a bucket full of chicken with a side of waffles: all tempting and delicious, sweet and spicey, with Boyce being some serious competition for Lucas Maxfield (the male protagonist of "Easy" and "Breakable", the first two installments in the 'Contours of the Heart' series) in the book-boyfriend department. It really comes as no surprise that Pearl fell in love with Boyce. He is the perfect little (big? Wouldn't wanna deliver an unintended inaccurate pun (-; ) package – a hot bad boy on the outside, and a boy who raised himself right on the inside. Boyce Wynn and Pearl Torres Frank are perfect for one another – they are like two matching puzzle pieces, completing - and bringing out the best in - each other. This novel is a great example how one moment, one fateful encounter – even if neither one of the two protagonists believes in fate – can change the course of your life forever. You will meet people who will stay in your life forever, and you will meet people who will only stay for a short while. You will meet people who will care, who will love you, and you will meet people who will inevitably hurt you. You will be around people who will try to influence you to go down a certain path in life, and you will meet those who will support you, your dreams and decisions, no matter what. And you should never settle for less - never settle for the least, the minimum, because you deserve nothing but the best. This is where one of the sweetest parts of the book comes in – the acknowledgements in the back of it. While I absolutely loved the story, the last paragraph of said acknowledgements makes me adore Tammara Webber as a person, and not 'just' a writer, even more than I already had. I'll save you a seat at my '10 authors you'd love to have a teaparty with'-table, Tammara!

When I heard that Tammara Webber was writing another novel in the Contours of the Heart series, my heart leaped with joy. I really liked Easy and Breakable and couldn’t wait to meet Boyce and Pearl. Sweet was just what the title suggests—sweet. I enjoyed reading this one. The beginning of the novel alternates between when Pearl and Boyce were in high school and years later after Pearl has finished college. At seven years old, Boyce rescued her from a nearly drowning in the ocean when she was five-years old. Over time, they became good friends. Their friendship began to develop into something more in high school, but they kept their relationship secret. After graduating college, Pearl goes against her mother’s wishes and declines admission into medical school. She moves back to her hometown to pursue a Ph.D in marine biology, and her mother forces her out of the house. With nowhere to go, she moves in with Boyce and their former sparks reignite. Boyce’s abusive father dies very early on in the book, leaving him with a trailer and the family mechanic business.  His mother left him and his older brother when he was very young. He was forced to grow up really fast. Boyce was a resilient hero and I really liked how he didn’t let the injustices of life bring him down. He was a fighter. Similarly, Pearl was a very determined heroine. I thought she was really likeable. Like with Webber’s other novels, Sweet delivers a cute love story without a lot of drama or crazy plot twists. Sweet is very much a second chance love/friends-to-lovers story. What I liked was the way the romantic tension between the characters was built in the past and present time. I thought their chemistry was really good, and I bought their love story. I liked this book, but felt it was very predictable, which is fine. Sometimes I’m in the mood for that type of read. But I felt like there were several moments in this book where I was wanting more and I didn’t get it. I would recommend this book to fans of second-chance romances. Whether you’ve read Webber’s other novels or not, you should definitely give Sweet a try. *I received an advanced copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. 3 stars

3.5/5 stars This was sweet! ;) In all seriousness, I definitely enjoyed this one. It was cute, and while I didn't find the pacing to be quite as arresting as EASY and found some of the flashbacks, particularly in the beginning, to be a little confusing at times, it was absolutely still an enjoyable (and sizzly) read. Boyce and Pearl were fun to read about and I also especially appreciated the diverse cast—Pearl is Latina, as are many minor characters, and another minor character is disabled.  All in all, SWEET is another fun NA read from Tammara Webber. If you like NA and haven't checked out her romances yet, you may definitely want to take a look!

I am sorry to have to write this because I loved Easy and Breakable, but this book was not good.

4 heart-melting, romantic, wonderful, captivating stars! The Contours of the Heart series, by Tammara Webber, has been a favorite of mine since I read Easy. I fell in love with her writing style and unforgettable characters. Jacqueline and Lucas are still in my top favorite couple. I read Easy a couple of years ago, but they still hold a piece of my heart. We get a glimpse of Pearl and Boyce in Breakable, which is the second book in this series. When I found out that they were getting their own book, I was pretty exited!  Boyce has been protecting Pearl since she can remember. From the moment he saved her from drowning, when she was just five years old, Boyce always had a piece of her heart. He’s her guardian angel, a best friend and her adolescent crush. When she makes the decision to drop from med school, Pearls feels the pressure of her family and friends about her drastic decision. The only person that understands her is Boyce. When she heads home for the summer, she had no clue that Boyce would be the one saving her once again. The moments that they share together are like a breath of fresh air and a new beginning to a journey she has always wanted. Will Boyce feel the same way and give their love a chance?  This was an enjoyable and sweet reading escape! I really liked the chemistry between Pearl and Boyce. Their friendship was amazing and the way Boyce protected and loved Pearl was simply heart-melting! Boyce was such a fantastic character! I loved how he changed his life around. His life as not been easy with a father that was abusive, a non-existent mom and a brother that died way too young. He deserves all the good things that are happening in his life and most of all he deserves Pearl’s love. Nobody understands her like he does.  Pearl was an awesome characters as well. I really loved how she put her foot down and make a decision that was good for her. She had a lot of pressure from her mom to go to med school, but what she’s really interested in is marine science. That is what makes her happy and what she wants for herself. Their relationship goes through some ups and downs, but their love they have for each other gives them strength to fight all these obstacles.  I really liked the flow of the story, but I have to admit that the flashbacks from both Boyce and Pearl’s POV slowed things down a few times. Nonetheless, it was a great romance that kept me turning the pages. The writing style is fantastic, the characters are lovable and the story will keep you glued to your seat from beginning to end! You don’t need to read Easy and Breakable to follow Sweet, but I highly recommend you do because you don’t want to miss Jacqueline and Lucas. Those two have a breathtaking love story that every book lover needs to discover.  I give Sweet, by Tammara Webber, 4 heart-melting, romantic, wonderful, captivating stars!

Reviewed by Annie and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog SWEET is a book that I have been looking forward to for a long time. This is mostly because this is Boyce’s book and if you’ve followed Tammara Webber’s Contours of the Heart series then you must already be familiar with Lucas’s enemy turned best friend. There’s this one line in BREAKABLE that I still quote to this day and that’s the “Boyce of reason” one because it makes me laugh a whole lot so when I found out that he was also getting his own book, no one was more stoked than I was. Webber is a very talented writer. She’s one that pays a great deal of attention to detail, outlining every single thing that could enhance the reading experience for the reader. That being said, this book is a little bit longer and quite wordy, but at the same time I do think it gives a very full vision of what Webber wanted to project to her readers. The book alternates between Boyce and Pearl’s POV starting way back when it all began for them. As teeny tiny innocent children, they get to know each other more when Pearl nearly drowns and Boyce saves her. Though vastly different in personality, this encounter brings them together and while it takes a very long time for them to realize their feelings for one another, their story really begins in an innocent phase and then blossoms from there. That being said, you may need some patience to get to the good parts because Webber weaves an intricate backstory for Pearl. As she tries to figure out what she wants to do with her life, she has the added stress of her parents expectations as well. Boyce, on the other hand, has his own set of problems that he is dealing with as well. Because of Boyce’s outgoing and friendly personality in the previous books, I thought this one would be a little bit lighter in tone. However, it stays within the New Adult angsty feel and Webber actually digs deeper, giving these two characters something really special together. I will say that while it was very different from what I expected, it was still fun to read. SWEET is amply named, merging the tender and heartfelt moments together. I think this is one that can be read well as a standalone.

I absolutely loved Easy and Breakable so it was a no brainer when deciding if I wanted to review Sweet.  Even though this is a standalone, the two main characters are from Lucas’ past so you technically know them a little bit if you’ve read Breakable. Tammara Webber is a fantastic writer and she has definitely continued that theme with this book. The story is not only “sweet” but also one about growing up and getting to know your true self. The characters were wonderful and very relatable. I really enjoyed this story. Boyce and Pearl have known each other since they were little kids. When Boyce saves Pearl from drowning, they form a bond for life. No matter what is going on in their lives, they know each other’s true self and give each other the support and protection they both need. Boyce had a crappy childhood. With mother who abandoned her family, and a drunk father, he only had his brother and then Pearl. Sadly, he loses his brother in the war in Afghanistan. All of this really pulled at my heart but it’s obvious that Boyce is strong and better than his mom or dad. He’s tough on the outside but Pearl knows who he really is. Pearl had a much different upbringing. She’s pressured by her mom to go to medical school and she’s fine with that until she’s ready to go and then realizes that’s not who she is and chooses a different path. I loved how she chose to do what was best for her and Boyce is totally supportive of her decisions. He knows her and believes in her. These two go through a lot but they always have each other. Even when they don’t see each other for 4 years, it’s still there. I absolutely loved these two people. The story line flowed really well in this book. Sometimes I’m leery of flashbacks because they often either mess with the continuity of a book and/or they don’t seem relevant and I get bored. This was not the case with this book. I found it really helpful to see how their story developed over the years. It really enhanced what I perceived of their relationship in the present. I don’t think  it would be possible to get as in depth of an understanding without that back story. All in all, the story was romantic but also had a lot of self growth which is really what New Adult books are about. Awesome story and I hope there’s more in the series. 5 out of 5 stars!

I loved Boyce and Pearl. He was, in fact, sweet. I really enjoyed their love story. I especially like the characters that Tammara Webber develops. I read Easy several times, and I'll probably do the same with Sweet.

 I adored EASY and BREAKABLE, and needless to say, I could not wait to get my hands on Sweet.  I totally fell for Lucas in those books, and it was because of his story and I have to be honest, the potential of a glimpse of what was going on in his life was part of the reason.  Needless to say, however, was that Tammara Webber had me falling for Boyce and totally in love with his and Pearl's story before I was even halfway through this book.  Boyce's story was gripping.....and he and Pearl's romance was heartbreakingly beautiful.  I loved the way they met.  They way they were such a big part of each other's life, mostly from afar for so much of that time, and the way their passion totally consumed each other when they finally gave into it.   Of course there are misunderstandings, mostly due to a lack of communication, but Boyce never once stopped looking out for Pearl, and Pearl could never forget the guy who stole her heart when she was just a child.  There is even a really intense situation at the end of the book that will have you biting your nails and flipping the pages to see what happens next.  I loved the way the book ended, and I loved the epilogue so very much.......and yes, I got my glimpse at Lucas as well.....sigh.  If you are a Tammara  Webber fan, then you definitely will want to grab this book.  I loved this, and I think contemporary romance fan at large will definitely enjoy this as well.

Loved Landon/Lucas in Easy and Breakable! And now love Boyce!
CarmenSwoonsCP More than 1 year ago
My girlfriend wondered who Pearl and Boyce were from Teaser #1 of Sweet. She barely remembered who they were from Easy and Breakable, but more directly: Why they got the spinoff and not, let's say, Erin? Trust me when I say Tammara Webber will sweet-talk her way with this beautiful book. I was lulled by the lovely flow and swept up by the intricacies of disillusion. Boyce and Pearl have a story to tell and there is no doubt that Ms. Webber gives vibrancy to their voice, grips you with her storytelling. Tammara Webber returns to the top of her game/genre with Sweet! Pearl and Boyce have a special connection. They're complete opposites yet they orbit around each others' worlds fluidly. In spite of his notorious bad boy reputation in school, Boyce always had an affinity for Pearl, inconspicuous to the student body. Why they keep their friendship so secret is their choice; it keeps it untainted, unsullied by outside forces. When Pearl decides to walk away from an illustrious future in medicine, causing outrage and dissension at home, Boyce is the only one who supports her; though his methods goad her into living life by her own standards. I looked like I had life by the scruff of the neck, but that was an illusion. Because I was scared to death of who I really was and what I really wanted. And somehow he knew. He'd always known. He's rough around the edges, but Boyce is quintessentially sweet in all things Pearl-related. Boyce is surviving the death of his hateful father, but what he takes from his miserable, abusive childhood is the wherewithal to thrive. Boyce's background story is steeped in pain, but he makes a better man of himself with the influence of his beloved older brother. When Pearl finds herself at a crossroads, Boyce, with his shi# together, becomes the most encouraging, seductive goal she could ever aspire to reach. Boyce had always yearned for Pearl, but her unexpected dire straits almost level the playing field. What neither considered was how utterly committed they already were to each other. Through recall, we piece together a more personal history unbeknownst between our leads. Ms. Webber takes us back to their earliest memories and brings us full circle to scenes from Easy and Breakable. It's such a comforting, satisfying feeling to read dual POVs as they fill in those gaps that lingered in our minds. Providing insight and a sense of discovery are cameos by the swoon-worthy Lucas, the Melody that we love/hate, etc. The recollections derive and maximize the wonder that led them to present time. As adults, there was forward movement, delicious intimacy, towards admitting their feelings, but the journey was halting and laced with doubt. They'll keep you breathless, begging for contact! There were scenes of pure emotion that made my heart leap in exaltation yet languish during moments that got away. When Boyce and Pearl both stopped hiding, insisting that they were just the best of friends, magic was released...enveloping this most deserving couple. Truth spoken out loud like that has a way of niggling at you from the inside, nudging your heart, tugging at your soul, lighting your mind with possibilities and sinking your gut with the risks behind them. Truth knows how to say I dare you and make you take notice, even if you'd rather disown it and remain insulated and safe. Sweet is book #3, but can be read as a standalone story (though I'd never deprive you the glory of swooning over Lucas). The Contours of the Heart series is mesmerizing, although one doesn't outshine the other. Ms. Webber's capacity for love is irrepressible and it is found in abundance throughout Sweet. Boyce and Pearl face adversity with courage; a testament to the friendship they've forged. It's time to pick up something Sweet!

I hardcore LOVE the books this one is a spin-off of.  Easy and Breakable are on my all time favorites list.  The only thing I love more than reading these books is listening to them on audio.  So when I heard that Boyce Wynn was going to get his story, I was so excited.   This author gets New Adult stories.  She recognizes the pivotal time this is in someones life and she uses that to make some of the best stories I've ever read.  And this one is no different. Boyce is the guy in Breakable that accepted Lucas (after a small fight, hehe).  He had Lucas' back and vice versa.  I thought he was funny and broken.  I really wanted him to get his girl.  And I knew who his girl was.  Pearl.  It could only ever be Pearl.  She needed to go to college and figure a few things out but somehow she knew it too. But this isn't a simple story.  The important ones never are.  And that's what makes this one so good.  This author combines the characters I love and care about with a story that's complex and fully developed.  There are little details attended to and characters I want to slap silly.  There are good and bad things happening.  There are sweet sexy moments that I just want to get lost in and read over and over.  There is sacrifice and love in action.  There is the feeling that these characters could walk off the page and fill your house with the best party you've ever had.  (Except Mitchell - who I would kick out after I slapped him silly). It's the kind of book I'd be happy to live in.  It's the kind of book I want re-read on a regular basis.  I'm so hoping this one makes it to audio because I really want to put it in line with Easy and Breakable on my re-read list. Even if you haven't read Easy or Breakable, this is a great choice for your next read.  But you will love these characters so much that you will want more.  All of them.  Every single sentence. Romance your thing?  Then don't miss this one.

4.25 stars--SWEET is the third installment (and spinoff) in Tammara Webber’s contemporary, new adult Contours of the Heart romance series. This is university student Pearl Frank, and auto mechanic Boyce Wynn’s storylines. Although SWEET is the third book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from previous storylines is revealed where necessary. Told from clear and concise alternating first person points of view (Pearl and Boyce) vacillating between the past and present through thoughts, flashbacks and memories SWEET follows a rekindling relationship/friends to lovers storyline between the soon to be twenty one year old Pearl and twenty three year old Boyce. When Pearl announces she is dropping medical school for marine biology, our heroine’s mother sends her only daughter packing. Homeless and with no available source of income, Pearl contacts Boyce Wynn-the man who, years before, saved not only her life but her heart and soul-wherein the romance and sexual relationship will begin to grow. The friendship and connection between Pearl and Boyce has been growing since our heroine was five years old when a then seven year old Boyce rescued a drowning girl only to find himself falling in love from the very start. Through the years, Pearl would be drawn to Boyce, over and over again. Boyce was Pearl’s first and only true love, and in this, Boyce has always been her anchor and protector when the going gets tough. The $ex scenes are provocative and compelling. There is an absolute chemistry and sexual tension between our leading couple. Boyce is a survivor; he and his older brother Brent were abandoned, by their mother, and left with their alcoholic and abusive father. When Brent entered the military, Boyce was left behind to pick up the pieces of his life and his father’s auto mechanic business. Fast forward and Boyce, once again, finds himself alone except for the one bright light in his life-Pearl Frank-and when it comes to Pearl, Boyce wears his heart on his sleeve. When Boyce’s mother resurfaces, our hero knows it is time to move on. Several of the secondary and supporting characters include Boyce’s friends- Landon/Lucas Maxfield from the original Contours of the Heart series, and Randy Thompson; Boyce’s new mechanic in training Sam, and Boyce’s long lost mother Ruthanne. We are introduced to Pearl’s parents Dr. Thomas and Essie Frank; her BFF Melody Dover who is the bane of Lucas and Boyce’s existence; some of Pearl’s fellow marine biology students, and Pearl’s ex boyfriend Mitchell who is having a difficult time letting go. SWEET is a wonderful storyline; an emotion laden tale about two friends from different backgrounds who never stopped loving one another over the years. The colorful characters are engaging, enjoyable and charismatic. Boyce and Pearl’s relationship is intimate, passionate and hopeful; from wondrous childhood dreams to sexually intense scenes of romance and imagination Tammara Webber pulls the reader into a storyline that will take hold and never let go.
