A few times in the past, he thought he’d been in love. He’d been an idiot. Because love was all the things he’d heard about but never felt until Kate—a crazy, spinning happiness, the knowledge that he was a better person with her than alone, that she’d made him a better person.

I am sure it does not come as a suprise that I loved another of Nina Lane's creations! And I am also sure most of you know her fantastic Spiral of Bliss series (Dean West is PERFECT and I can't get over him!) and she started a very sweet and sexy new series last year called Sugar Rush. Well, I really enjoyed the previous two books and this one was no exception!

Sweet Surrender is the third installment in the series and it tells the story of the youngest Stone brother (Tyler)

Tyler Stone is a gorgeous 26 yr. old guy from a wealthy family that owns the Sugar Rush Candy Company located in Indigo Bay, a town on the California coastline. He's the youngest of the brothers, and views himself as the family screw up. The spoiled, rich, party boy with the trust fund. He's never had any interest in the family business, & never been able to live up to the success of his siblings. He lacked responsibility & wasn't known for his impulse control, so it was no surprise

Nina Lane definitely has a knack for taking two completely opposite characters and making their relationship work really well and it has me obsessed with this series right now. Tyler easily drew me into this story and I loved getting to see his character evolve over the course of it. Kate was just the woman he needed to help him settle down and find his place within his family. I thought they were great together and I really enjoyed seeing them navigate through t

I LOVEEEEE Nina's books, 'oh my' she has the ability to grip my heart and mind from page 1. I'll even say I'm spell bounded by her magic. Her words just touch me EVERY SINGLE TIME. And even though tbh this is a lighthearted read you kind of read between the lines and feel the characters for what they are..

Making sense? Lol

Ok so what's it about?
Tyler Stone is the younger brother of the family and also the irresponsible one, he lives by drink, sex and fun. He's the one who just loves to part

As the black liquorice sheep of the family, Tyler Stone has settled well into the role of unreliable younger sibling. While his brothers are serious and hardworking, Tyler works hard at having fun. With his latest escapade resulting in thousands of dollars in damage, the party boy is being put to work and held accountable for repaying his debt. If the thought of working at the family run company wasn’t droll enough, Tyler’s hell gets even fresher when he discovers his role will be organising and

It's not a secret that I love me some Nina Lane. I mean she wrote my favorite Professor ever! Dean West (Swoon!) The Spiral Bliss still stands as one of my faves series.

Sweet Surrender is a beautiful read about Tyler Stone, the playboy of the Stone family and Kate Darling, Evan Stone's executive secretary. I love the redemption of the bad boy storylines and this one was no different. Tyle

I’ll never get my fill of Nina Lane’s eloquent writing style and her swoon-worthy heroes totally own me. Whether they are a loving professor, a badass biker, or the rulers of a candy empire, these perfectly flawed and devastatingly sexy men are forever branded within my heart. My latest obsession…Tyler Stone, the wickedly sensual black sheep of his family.

I'm on a binge of the Sugar Rush series in anticipation of the latest entry coming out in December. In this installment, Kate, the efficient and buttoned up executive assistant to Luke Rush, is trying to figure out why her relationships never work out. Tyler, the family screw up, is assigned to cleaning up the library as punishment for his latest transgression. When Tyler meets Kate, a bargain is struck to help each other out and you guessed it, romance happens.

Favorite Quotes:

Her voice was warm and throaty, like she’d swallowed a butterscotch.

It’s a quest now…He’s the one man who hasn’t paid attention to her, so now it’s become her personal Mordor. He’s the one true ring.

Kate could take lessons from Mia on how to land Miles Norwood, though for some reason Tyler didn’t like the idea of Kate thrusting out her cleavage and batting her eyelashes. Plus she’d probably do it so badly that Norwood would ask her if she had a backache or something in her eye.

This was actually really sweet. I liked both characters. They were opposite but have an inner core similarity. And they were hot together!

Enjoying this series! On to the next one...

Any time I pick up a Nina Lane book I know that I am in for a treat. Her writing is top-notch, her love stories are swoony (especially her heroes), and let’s be honest, her books are the hottest ones out there.

Sweet Surrender was a super-cute friends-to-lovers romance. Kate is Luke Stone's (CEO of Sugar Rush) executive assistant. She is career-focused, driven and pretty much married to her job. The one thing missing in her life? A boyfriend, and specifically, her crush Miles would fit the job pe

Tyler Stone has been sent to straighten out and organize the Sugar Rush library. He tries to enlist Kate (who we've met previously, as she's Luke's assistant), to help him. She agrees, but only if he helps her with her inexperience when it comes to her sex life. Their agreement quickly turns on it's head and Kate is left scrambling to figure out what she wants in her future. Tyler also learns that while he enjoys the history aspect of his family's company, he wants no to day-to-day part in i
As much as I liked the previous two books, this felt a little flat. I liked both the characters but I did not connect much to them..

Don't give more than 2 days to this book or else you won't like it.. ...more

I think I'm done with this type of synopsis of the story line. Bad boy Tyler seducing a "librarian" who is really Evans assistant just so Kate can learn to attract another man. It was fast paced in the beginning and I just wasn't connecting with everything. ...more

Sweet Surrender is a opposites attract romance that will leave you craving more. It's the 3rd in Nina Lane's Sugar Rush Series and focuses on the life of the youngest Stone sibling Tyler and Sugar Rush CEO Luke's very capability assistant, Kate. I'll confess that I'm reading the series out of order, but I can happily say it can easily be read as a standalone. If anything it served to whet my appetite to read books 1 and 2 ASAP. Yes, Sweet Surrender is a delectable read indeed.

Super sexy fun! Kate is a beautiful spirit, she works very hard to prove her worth but struggles in the relationship department. Being raised by a single dad and around a bunch of quarry workers definitely shaped this part of her life. When she’s in the library at Sugar Rush one day, a voice startles her which sends her falling right into the arms of the youngest Stone brother, Tyler. Oh boy, what a fabulous body to rub up against. Tyler feels like the black sheep of the family, never measuring ...more
Taylor Stone is definitely the raunchier brother, he is a dirty rascal that changes Kate from being a straight and narrow executive assistant to a little sex fiend.

As I read the Sugar Rush series it's amazing how each book gets better with the family's involvement with their candy company. In this book we get to learn more about the family's history and how they came to be so successful as Taylor pays back his debt working in the Sugar Rush's library.

Loved it. Not a real fan of the covers but maybe it's a marketing thing, but this series has been really sweet. Tyler and Kate's story was really great. I like the way Nina Lane writes with such gusto and even if this is a romance, she gives a good back story so it doesn't fall into a typical cliche story even if the storyline is indeed typical. ...more

I need a physical description of the heroine. So if you've read this and could give me the deets pertaining to this, it would be very helpful. Would make a difference in my decision to buy or not to buy this book lol.

I just want to make sure she isn't a plain heroine trapped in a Victoria Secret model body because I'm sick of this "kind" of heroine. Thank you. :-)

"Rule number one." Tyler lifted his arm to look at her, his expression shuttered. "Don't bring up other guys before, during, or after you and I fuck."
Kate winced. "Sorry."
"Rule number two..." He lifted his arm, indicating that she should tuck herself against his side. "We always cuddle."

I didn't love Sweet Surrender as much as I love the first two books, but it's no less entertaining. I thought it would be one of those cliches 'girl gets a makeover, guy suddenly realizes she's Hot' etc., but I w

Tyler Stone is the youngest of the Stone brothers, and apparently has always been the 'screw up'. He dropped out of college, tinkers with cars on the weekends, and spends his time partying, playing video games, and boozing, all the while taking up with a variety of beautiful women who use him for his trust fund.

“Do you consider us friends?” Kate asked. “Sure.” Wariness threaded through his voice. “Good. I do too.” Something clicked inside Kate, like a key turning in a lock. “So what do you say about us becoming fuck buddies?”

Kate Darling is a super organised career focused woman. She lives and breathes her job as Luke Stone’s assistant, available to all staff 24/7. Lately she has come to realise that she has been so focused on doing a good job that she has lost sight of her own personal happiness.
