He's going to tutor her in more ways than one.


My best friend's little sister--that's all Claudia Bliss is to me.
My head keeps trying to convince my heart, but both know it's a damn lie.

It's her face I see every time I close my eyes.
It's her lips I long to kiss.
It's her touch I crave in the dark.
She's the one I love... but wanting Claudia is wrong.

She's been like a lit

This was a sweet and sexy romance with the older brother's best friend trope.

Bram has spent his entire friendship with Claudia's brother looking out for her. She was always the annoying little pest that followed the boys everywhere they went, but she was never a pest to him. He always loved her...until he finally saw her in a different light. It took one summer away to come back to a 17 year old Claudia that's stunning and he realizes that his love for her has taken on a whole different

Georgia Cates is no stranger when it comes to romance with heat and raw emotions but in her newest release, Sweet Torment, she take readers on a fun, sexy fast paced first love forbidden romance!! With so many romance books saturating the market, I think it’s fun to get lost in a quick story that is predictable and yet sweet and sexy. And in Sweet Torment we get all three plus the forbidden best friend little sister trope that I know mos

SWEET TORMENT by Georgia Cates was a quick, fast paced little novella!
I jumped right into the story of Bram and Claudia and couldn't put this book down until I found out how these two ended up.

Bram has the hots for his best friends little sister. And when I say little, I mean he is 23 and she is 17. Claudia has been in love with Bram for all of her life and has been waiting and biding her time until she could make her feelings known for him. The problem is, she is not legal!!! Also, Claudia's br
To quote another review this is a novella that will melt your heart and your kindle. I loved it! it was super steamy and romantic and it had all my favorite tropes: virgin heroine, smitten hero plus pregnancy and lots of kids! This is a new author for me but I am now her fan!

Pretty darn good...

A little taboo. Age gap and best friends little sister.

Claudia and Bram have known each other for years. They've always had a special connection. Nothing gross, just a bond that has kept them tied together. When Bram starts to realize his connection with Claudia could be perceived as odd he distances himself from her. Needless to say they end up coming back together and things get pretty interesting.

This was a quick and fun read. Well written and kept me wanting to turn pages
❤Rachel Anne's Romance Must Reads❤
Cute novella. A lot of steam.

I liked this for the most part. I was completely in until they actually hooked up. It wasn't bad, just a little too easy. One big issue I had was that he used the word "Bae". I'm sorry but no. My sister who is 8 years younger than me says that and I'm always on her case about it. Haha. But seriously the rest of the time he uses words that sound much older so it didn't work for me. Ignoring that word, this was a short sweet read.

3.75 rounded to 4 stars =)

HOLY MOLY! This book is SCORCHING HOT! I'm pretty sure my kindle was close to overheating a few times. The sexual tension was crazy thick, the character connection was there from the minute Claudia jumped into Bram’s arms and it only grew to the point of being super EXPLOSIVE!

Sweet Torment moved fast and is one hell of a thrill ride. Georgia took the trope, best friends - little sister and made it sexy, forbidden and WILD!

Georgia did a great job of making Bram a desirable and swoony alpha male

"Sweet Torment" is the story of Claudia and Bram.

A super smutty, forbidden romance between a shocked H, who suddenly realizes his lust for his best friend's little sister, whom he has watched grow up. There is enticement, seduction, romance, kinky lovemaking, confrontations, drama, breeding and HEA.

Things I liked were
-the H waited for the h to turn legal before banging her
-Grade A anal
-Lactation porn
-Bred HEA

Things that made me icky
-Deliberate impregnation because he didn't want her to leave him

I this book was hot as hell! Bram and Claudia *swoon*. Friends to lovers. I absolutely love this story! As with all Georgia's books, Sweet Torment has instantly become a favorite. ...more

So Georgia Cates wrote a sweet predictable story with Sweet Torment. And that's not a negative thing. It is what it is. There's nothing really that stands out in this story or makes it edgy. It's just a sweet romance between two people. It was quick and fun and very low on the drama, so props for that. Do I wish that maybe the age gap would have been a tad longer?, well yeah, then it would be have been dirty and we all how much I like my dirty ;) LOL

But seriously, enjoy this quick afternoon read

Best friend forbidden little sister trope that was meh! It was written well so no problem there. Just not much different from any others. Hot and steamy and includes a five year difference in age between Duke and "Little Dove" (the name he calls her way too often and I hate it!). He's 23 and she's 17, a virgin and a senior in high school. Some of it was a bit out of reach for me to really grab on and get with the program. ...more

Sweet Torment was a cute novella full of heat, sweaty hot sex and a lot of happy moments. And though the author didn't make us work on how the events would go, the book was still enjoyable.

Whoa, this virgin-for-you forbidden romance will fog up your Kindle screen. There was a whole lot of sexy and sweet build up in this fast paced novella. I almost wish this was a novel, but this novella packed a lot of heat and heart. I'm still fanning myself, and I think I need a cigarette after this one. ...more

Georgia Cates joins the ranks of Aria Cole and Dani Wyatt in the seductive guilty pleasure reads with Sweet Torment.

Bram and Claudia have shared a special bond all of their lives, although Bram has always tried to convince himself that it is a bond of friendship and protection rather than soul-deep love due to his age difference and friendship with Claudia's brother. However, as Claudia matured into a beautiful young lady it was harder for Bram to deny his attraction to her and the confusion tha

I just loved GC Sin Trilogy so when I seen this one and read the idea behind it sounded a bit reminiscent of the series. My only hesitation was the word Novella in the title but if you look at the print length it shows 456 pages. I have seen this happen before and it usually means spacing is different or something like that either way I went for it. So with that in mind the book goes to about 26% on my Kindle and there is actually another book that follows by Cates called Tap. My rating does not ...more

**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book.**

A surprisingly wonderful novella!

Bram has returned home from college, ready to start working and leave the college party scene behind him. Then he comes face to face with his best friend's little sister. A girl who isn't so little anymore and invokes feelings in him that are better left alone. Yet, he can't help but see his dove in a different light. A much sexier light.

Claudia is elated when Bram finally looks at her like she's always

Going into this novella I knew there was a bit of an age difference (6 years to be exact) between Claudia and Bram. I also found out that Claudia was a 17 year old high schooler and Bram was a 23 year old grown man. Both of these things don't really bother me. In fact that was something that drew me to this book originally. I've read books with similar scenarios and even though Claudia was a little annoying with her obsession over Bram, to the point where she is changing her appearance

Georgia Cates always knows how to deliver an excellent story. This book was no different.

I love her storylines and she always delivers lovable characters. Her books always suck me in and I never want them to end.

Sweet Torment is a standalone novella told in Dual POV. It's a forbidden Friends to lovers story. What makes this story forbidden is the age difference between Claudia and Bram. I love

OMG I cannot believe it has taken me until now to read this book. It’s a little taboo but oh so cute, fun and hot!

Claudia is Owen’s little sister and followed her brother and his friends River and Bram around, whereas her brother and River always treated her like the annoying little sister she was. Bram always treated her with care and looked out for her. These two characters has a special bond with each other. Its years later and Claudia is all grown up much to Bram’s surprise he cannot believe

I've been on a bit of a bother's best friend to lovers kick lately so I was super excited to get my hands on Sweet Torment. It's certainly sweet and although Bram and Claudia have known each other forever, it still felt a bit insta-love for me. You'll understand why when you get to that point.

For the most part, I really enjoyed Bram. He's got a dirty mouth and is possessive over Claudia. He wants to do the right thing when it comes to them and the sweetness in him melted my heart. However, ther

This was a cute and quick romance between brother best friend and his little sister.

Bram was 6 years old when Claudia was born and always saw her as a little sister. He did however always felt a bond to her. Claudia on the other hand always loved Bram and that feeling kept growing the older she got.

Fast forward couple years he's now 23 and she's two months away from turning 18 when she made her move and told Bram exactly how she felt. He tried his hardest but didn't do anything with her until sh
