A rock-hard bodyguard gets a sassy, sweet treat.
Stuck in a boring insurance job, vivacious Mia Donovan has spent the last few years searching for her life's true path. She fills her time helping plan the wedding of her best friend to the CEO of the Sugar Rush Candy Company.
Mia has also been trying to attract the impossibly rigid Sugar Rush security chief Gavin Knight. But for well over a year, the unyielding Mr. Knight has ignored her, despite her short skirts, tight sweaters, and patently obvious flirting. And when he finally approaches her, it's only to assess the wedding plans for potential security risks.
A former soldier, Gavin has intercepted hostile anonymous letters threatening the high-profile wedding. Determined to keep everyone safe, he's forced to work with the maddeningly sexy Miss Donovan of the thousand-watt charm and irresistible body.
Irked by Gavin's many months of disregard, Mia takes her teasing flirtations to a whole new level. But her coquettish ways are no match for the edgy, lust-fueled dominant he conceals behind his impassive exterior. And when Gavin exerts his full control, Mia discovers he can protect everything except her heart.

After witnessing glimpses of the will-they-or-won't-they debacle of Mia and Gavin in the previous three books, I was so excited to finally see them get their chance at a HEA in Sweet Time. In the previous books, Mia's always been a constant source of amusement. I love her ceaseless flirting, especially when it comes to Gavin. Additionally, I admire that she's always been a great friend to Polly. I mean, she is the reason why Polly and Luke ended up together, which honestly deems her worthy of a medal in my opinion. In Sweet Time, a new side of Mia is seen. She's not always the confident, fearless girl she presents herself as. She has insecurities, especially when it comes to her friendship with Polly and her career outlook. I feel that any twenty-something will be able to relate to Mia - she's at that crossroads part of her life where all of her friends are getting married or in relationships or finding the career of their lives while she's just chilling in a dead-end job, single as ever. Then enters Gavin, finally ready to give it a go with Mia. Their resulting romance was sweet and full of chemistry. I also liked that more of Gavin was seen - he had a lot of layers to his character. More importantly, I loved that while Gavin helped Mia see her potential, he wasn't her "savior" - she saved herself when it came to finding happiness and purpose and I was wholeheartedly behind that! Last but not least, it was fun to see Polly's wedding in this. Nina even included a mystery within it, and while the mystery was easy to solve, I still enjoyed it. Overall, another great addition to the Sugar Rush series. 3. 5 stars!
I was given a advance copy for honest book review and I am so happy that I did. This story was a great read, Nina Lane is a great writer who literally captivated my attention from the beginning. I was taken in by Mia's character and her infatuation with Gavin. I loved Gavin's attitude towards the attention he was getting from Mia and how they were playing a whole cat and mouse game for a whole year. Their story was not cheesy or overly dramatic, they had great chemistry and I enjoyed reading how there love for one another developed. This story was funny, cute, and had the right amount of romance and sex. I love Nina's other series and reading this 4th installment of the sugar rush series definitely makes me want to read the other books in this series. This book can definitely be read as a stand alone but for me it made me curious as to how the other couples in the book met. I would recommend this book to my friends and fellow book lovers, especially those that love lots of sexual tension and bruiting male characters. Reviewed by: Glori I.
SWEET TIME is the fourth installment in Nina Lane’s contemporary, adult SUGAR RUSH erotic, romance series focusing on the owners and operators of the Sugar Rush Candy Company. This is Sugar Rush head of security and former Marine Gavin Knight, and Mia Donovan’s story line. SWEET TIME can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Mia and Gavin’s story line has been building since book one-our heroine is Polly Lockhart’s (SWEET DREAMS) best friend. Told from dual third person perspectives (Mia and Gavin) SWEET TIME focuses on the building relationship between security specialist Gavin Knight, and Polly Lockhart’s best friend Mia Donovan. Mia and Gavin have been dancing around one another for close to a year. Every day Gavin Knight comes into Polly’s bakery THE WILD CHILD, and every time Mia struggles to attract the attention of the stoic and impassive former Marine. With the approach of Polly and Luke Stone’s wedding, Mia has offered her services as the wedding coordinator which will force her to work together with Gavin Knight whose team at Knight Security has been tasked with ensuring the wedding ceremony and party go according to plans. A threat has been issued against the Sugar Rush CEO Luke Stone, and Gavin struggles with the identity and source of the increasing intimidation and danger. What ensues is the building love between Gavin and Mia, and the potential fall out as Gavin has yet to come to terms with his time in the Middle East, and the ongoing PTSD that continues to affect his life. Mia Donovan’s attraction to Gavin Knight is immediate and intense but Gavin appears to be oblivious to all of Mia’s attempts at flirting and seduction. Gavin battles his attraction to, and need for our story line heroine, and places all of his energies into protecting the man he once called friend and brother. Mia and Gavin’s short lived romance begins to fall apart when the threats against Luke Stone come to fruition placing Mia Donovan in the direct line of fire. The $ex scenes are intimate, seductive and intense. There are six Stone siblings with stories to tell-Luke, Evan, Adam, Hailey, Spencer and baby brother Tyler. All of the previous story line couples and character including Tyler and Kate, Hannah and Evan, Luke’s father Warren, and their meddling Aunt Julia play secondary and supporting characters. The world building takes the focus away from the Sugar Rush company and places the emphasis on the threats against its’ CEO. Gavin knows that to act on his feelings towards Polly’s best friend may threaten his friendship with Lucas Stone but his attraction to Mia is immediate and intense. SWEET TIME is a sexy and edgy read. The premise is entertaining and encouraging; the characters are colorful, dynamic and energetic; the romance is intimate and passionate. Nina Lane’s SUGAR RUSH is a decadent series of heartbreak, love and happily ever afters.
Sweet Time is a reminder of why I'm a Nina Lane fan. In a world full of jaded people where anger and hate seems to be becoming the norm, it's nice to see that there are still a few optimists among us encouraging us to be strong. Gavin and Mia may be less than perfect, totally mismatched and not keen on falling in love, but the wit that Ms. Lane brought to the table is the perfect blend of humor, heart and happiness to chase away life's blah moments and leave a lasting impression that is sure to please.
