Review Tour : Sweet Dreams (Sugar Rush #1) by Nina Lane



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?

My Review

Rating : 4.5 out of 5 Stars

This book was scrumptious! I absolutely loved it! Nina Lane is back and she has delivered a charming, lighthearted and mouthwatering romance, with vibrant characters and a feel good plot that kept me flipping the pages.

Polly Lockhart needs to find a way to keep her family’s bakery afloat and finish her semester in a culinary arts program. She is a bit socially awkward and would like to become more self-confident. To this purpose, she propositions a man in a bar, but ends up throwing up all over his shoes. The hottie in question happens to be Luke Stone, CEO of Sugar Rush, the company hosting a class tour as part of Polly’s training program.

This story uses an opposites attract trope, and I found it irresistible. Polly knows that Luke is totally out of her league. She is sweet, quirky and overly enthusiastic, he is a control-freak, driven and arrogant. On paper, they have nothing in common, and yet despite their differences, their attraction is strong.

Luke has been the center of an ugly paternity scandal that has damaged his company’s reputation and he needs a distraction. He knows he makes a mistake coming on to Polly, but he is bewitched by her. Polly likes him, he is straightforward and caring. He intends to help her with the business aspect of the bakery, to get it back on track, but he is convinced he can’t make her promises. Their dynamic was so much fun, Luke can’t resist Polly’s enthusiasm and finally accepts to change his view of life for her.

This story had the perfect balance of humor, emotions and chemistry. There was no unnecessary drama and lots of great supporting characters. I absolutely loved Luke’s nosy aunt Julia! This book is the first in Nina Lane’s new series “Sugar Rush” and I can’t wait for more!
