    4.25 stars-sweet, sexy, cinderellaesque romance

    4.25 stars--SWEET DREAMS is the first installment in Nina Lane’s contemporary adult SUGAR RUSH romance series focusing on the Stone family who own and operate the Sugar Rush Candy Company. This is Sugar Rush CEO Luke Stone, and twenty three year old bakery shop owner/ college student Polly Lockhart’s story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Luke and Polly) SWEET DREAMS follows the building relationship between the CEO of the Sugar Rush Candy Company Luke Stone, and bakery owner Polly Lockhart. On her twenty third birthday Polly was pushed by her best friend Mia to seduce the hottie at the local bar but too many drinks, a heartbreaking but humorous rejection, and a lasting impression found our heroine alone the next morning with nothing but a hangover, some unfortunate memories, and a scheduled tour of the Sugar Rush Candy Company along with her college classmates. Enter CEO Luke Stone, and the last person our heroine was hoping to meet-Luke is the hottie from the evening before, and the man who had featured in our heroine’s dreams. What ensues is Luke’s pursuit of Polly Lockhart, and his attempts to turn around Polly’s floundering bakery known as the Wild Child. Luke Stone is a workaholic with no time for relationships, vacations or fun. His Aunt Julia continues to try and fix up our story line hero with any number of women with exquisite pedigrees and social graces that seem to be absent in our story line heroine. Polly is a struggling independent business woman who is trying to turn around her late-mother’s bakery-a bakery that started to fail when her mother was diagnosed with cancer and eventually died. Luke, a man whose own business has waivered on the financial markets in the past, takes Polly under his wing and attempts to fix up her business both inside and out. When Polly is offered a nine-month culinary scholarship to Paris, France, Luke knows that he will not be the one to destroy her dreams, but instead allows the woman he loves to walk away and destroy his heart. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive. The sexual chemistry is palpable. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Polly’s best friend Mia, her sister Hannah, co-worker Clementine, and friend Ramona. We are also introduced to Luke’s brother Evan, his father Warren, and his meddling Aunt Julia. There are six Stone brothers- Evan and Hannah’s story will be told next in SWEET ESCAPE. Nina Lane’s SWEET DREAMS is a sexy Cinderella-esque romantic fairy tale. Luke has issues of control and is unable to walk away and let go of the business he has worked so hard to be a success; Polly is a woman determined to help Luke relax and take some time for himself. The premise is heartwarming, emotional and playful; the characters are passionate and spirited; the romance is provocative and alive. There is no outside conflict brought into the relationship except that which the couple brings themself.

    Needed a faster pace

    I got to about 40%ish of the book then skimmed the rest. The whole build up was soooo slow. The characters weren't right for each other at all. Polly's too immature for Luke and I wasn't feeling their relationship. I think I wanted Polly to show she was inexperienced then what was written. I hope Hannah (Polly's older sister) has a damned good explanation for not dealing with their failing mother's bakery business. I'm hoping the next 2 are better especially Evan's book in book 2. I will come back to the next 2 soon bc I don't want my disappointment of this book to cloud my judgement.

    Sweet, sexy, fun romance

    This was a fun and sexy read. Polly is in trouble, the bakery her mother started is slipping away from her after her mother’s illness. As she struggles to find a way to save it, she decides to let loose with her friend Mia for her birthday. Well, after a few shots she gets very bold with one Mr. Hottie which leads to an embarrassing moment. Boy is she surprised when he turns up on her tour of Sugar Rush, the candy manufacturer and is the CEO. Luke is stunned by his reaction to Polly. There encounter at the bar is brief yet exhilarating. When she turns up at his manufacturing facility, well, it he decides to take advantage at this second chance. Luke is up tight and a control freak, he has been working hard to keep his family’s candy business going while growing it. Polly is the perfect complement to him, she comes from a free spirited background and seems to be just the medicine he needs to loosen up. I truly had fun reading their story. Their chemistry is electric and the give and take is wonderful, it’s not all about Luke saving Polly, she holds her own while showing she can save him too.
