***

This novella follows Sawyer and Grace’s journey after Sweet Temptation, book two in the Men of Honor series. It is told in dual POV, has an HEA, and no cliffhanger. Sweet Temptation should be read prior to this novella. It is highly recommended to read the other books in both the Men of Honor series and the Acts of Honor series as all the characters play recurring roles.


excerpt“Daddy, can you skate with me one more time?” Hope asks, from where she holds Catherine’s hand, skating along with her.

“You bet, Shortcake. One more then we’ll pack it in for lunch.” He kneels down, letting her crawl on his back, then he power skates around the rink, making her squeal and laugh. The sight warms my heart and I completely get her excitement ‘cause it’s one of my most favorite things he’s ever done with me.

As if hearing my thoughts his eyes connect with mine, making my stomach do a flip. After a few more circles he calls everyone in for the dressing room. I watch him say something to his mom that has her nodding and taking Hope. John, Catherine, and the kids exit out on the other side of the rink as Sawyer comes skating over to me, his hand out in offering.

“Come on, Cupcake. Your turn.”

Another smile takes over my face, my belly dancing with excitement. “I was hoping you were gonna say that.”

Taking his hand, he pulls me in close then leans down and scoops me up. I wrap my legs around his lean hips and my arms around his neck. After giving me a soul-touching kiss, he starts our journey. His long, quick strides eat up the distance as I revel in the brisk air against my back. I have no idea what’s behind me but I don’t care. I only care about the person in front of me.

Right when I think things can’t get any better he switches directions, beginning to skate backward so the breeze is in my face, and that’s when I let go. Letting my arms out at the side and closing my eyes, I bask in the freedom I feel at this moment. It’s as if I’m flying, my heart soaring to a special place no one can take me to but him. Though I can’t see a thing, I know everything around me is safe because I’m in the arms of a man who will never let me fall.

my review

4.5 Stars

Sweet Love is the first book in the Sweet Series, which is a continuation from Men of Honor series – just fast forwarded a few years. Fans of the series are going to love it! It is basically the emotional continuation of an unfinished chapter in Sawyer and Grace’s incredible fairytale romance.

After finishing Sweet Temptation, I assumed that Sawyer and Grace were well on their way to enjoying a life time of love and happiness. All is well in their world when Sweet Love starts – they are married happily with two kids. The passion and friendship is still there so it was awesome to revisit these characters.

That is until Grace’s father appears one morning and makes a request.  It’s a selfish and disrespectful demand considering the state of their relationship but Grace is kind and giving – she cannot ignore someone when they need help.  Sawyer doesn’t necessarily agree with Grace’s view point on the situation which creates some unwanted tension in their relationship.

And awesome reading for me.

The dramatic journey these two take put me through the ringer and I devoured this novella.  Sweet Love is a heartwarming story about unconditional love and friendship.  Absolutely check this one out!
