ABOUT SWEET ESCAPE:

When dessert goes wrong…

Hannah Lockhart travels the world and blogs about love. At least she used to before she promised to look after her sister’s bakery. Now, stuck in small town California for the next six months, Hannah is desperate to find romantic content for her blog or risk losing both readers and income.

Then a whipped cream disaster sends her into the arms of sexy, charming Evan Stone, heir to the Sugar Rush Candy Company.

Since childhood, Evan has been trying to overcome family concerns about his defective heart. Known as “The Heartbreaker,” he’s found an outlet with women. And when bad news strikes him, he seeks a diversion by offering to show Hannah the romance of the Bay Area.
Hannah jumps at the chance…as long as they keep things platonic. But soon Evan’s hot combination of charm, perfect kisses, and a serious sweet tooth melts her defenses.

 As Hannah and Evan surrender to their delicious attraction, they are forced to confront the reality of her wanderlust and his heart condition. When love and hearts collide, can Hannah and Evan find their sweet ending?

MY REVIEW:



4 Stars!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, pain, secrets, and heartbreak.

This is Hannah and Evan’s story. Hannah is a blogger. She spends her time traveling and blogging about love. But when her sister needs her to watch her bakery she agrees. For the next six months she is stuck in one place and has to blog about love. Evan is trying to overcome a heart condition. But after a mishap with whipped cream he and Hannah become friends. He tells her he can take her around and show her all the romance of the area. But Hannah needs to keep it just between friends. No way can she fall for him. But what happens when sweet romance turns into scorching kisses and charming fun? Can they resist falling for each other? What happens when the 6 months is over and Hannah does not have to stay?

I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I recommend this book.



4 Stars!

While Evan Stone is no Professor Dean West (yes, I am still obsessed with that man) Nina Lane gives her readers yet another sexy, sensitive guy to swoon over. Sweet Escape is the second book in the series, so I can't comment on Luke Stone, featured in the first, however I do have a great imagination.

Evan Stone is pared with Hanna Lockhart and to keep things all in the family, Hannah's sister is dating Evan's brother. Hanna is back in her small hometown to help run her sister's bakery while she's in Paris. Evan is a staple of said small town as he helps with the family candy business, Sugar Rush.

These two are opposites attract if I've ever seen it and I absolutely loved it. He's happy staying right in the town he grew up in, while she's spent the last ten years traveling the world and writing about love for her blog. Even though they are vastly different on paper, they work out in "real life" because each is okay with the temporary situation. Although we all know there's nothing temporary about it. Cue the angst.

Rich guy, non-materialistic girl and said guy is labeled the Heartbreaker, actually for a heartbreaking reason though, things get interesting and by the end are moving at warp speed. While it took a little time for Hanna and Evan to find some sort of groove, it was great when they did. I liked how they talked about nothing and joked around so easily.

The book is well written and of course sexy, al la Nina Lane. I wasn't sure about Evan Stone, being the huge Professor Dean West fan that I am, but he definitely cut the mustard. Strong and sexy, with a vulnerable side as well. While Sweet Escape can be read as a standalone, I am curious about Luke and Polly now and will go back to read the first one.

He may own a candy company, but this wealthy bachelor is no Willy Wonka.
Sugar Rush Candy Company CEO Luke Stone is a devoted businessman who doesn't do relationships. He does short-term affairs with clearly defined rules. But when a sexy bohemian angel propositions him in a bar, Luke is tempted to want more.
Polly Lockhart is horrified when she wakes the morning after her twenty-third birthday to realize she made a fool of herself with a sinfully delicious man. She tells herself she doesn't have time for romance anyway, as she's fighting to keep her mother's beloved bakery afloat and finish her culinary studies. That all changes when her class tours the famed Sugar Rush headquarters, and Polly collides with her dream man again. As she succumbs to their hot attraction, Polly soon realizes her bakery isn't the only thing that needs saving. Luke, driven and unyielding, will burn out unless someone convinces him to taste the sweetness of life. But can Polly remember this sugar rush is only temporary?
