He’s the love of her life, but he doesn’t know it.
She’s his one moment of sacrifice in a lifetime of survival.
He was damaged and wild, but resilient.
She’s always been obedient. Now she’s restless.
Home for the summer between college and med school, Pearl Torres Frank knows two things: Boyce Wynn is the embodiment of everything she should run from, and everything she wants to run to. Rebellious and loud. Unconcerned with society’s opinion of him. Passionate. Strong. Dangerous.
And one more trait he hides from everyone but her: Sweet
REVIEW: SWEET is the third installment (and spinoff) in Tammara Webber’s contemporary, new adult Contours of the Heart romance series. This is university student Pearl Frank, and auto mechanic Boyce Wynn’s storylines. Although SWEET is the third book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from previous storylines is revealed where necessary.
Told from clear and concise alternating first person points of view (Pearl and Boyce) vacillating between the past and present through thoughts, flashbacks and memories SWEET follows a rekindling relationship/friends to lovers storyline between the soon to be twenty one year old Pearl and twenty three year old Boyce. When Pearl announces she is dropping medical school for marine biology, our heroine’s mother sends her only daughter packing. Homeless and with no available source of income, Pearl contacts Boyce Wynn-the man who, years before, saved not only her life but her heart and soul-wherein the romance and sexual relationship will begin to grow.
The friendship and connection between Pearl and Boyce has been growing since our heroine was five years old when a then seven year old Boyce rescued a drowning girl only to find himself falling in love from the very start. Through the years, Pearl would be drawn to Boyce, over and over again. Boyce was Pearl’s first and only true love, and in this, Boyce has always been her anchor and protector when the going gets tough. The $ex scenes are provocative and compelling. There is an absolute chemistry and sexual tension between our leading couple.
Boyce is a survivor; he and his older brother Brent were abandoned, by their mother, and left with their alcoholic and abusive father. When Brent entered the military, Boyce was left behind to pick up the pieces of his life and his father’s auto mechanic business. Fast forward and Boyce, once again, finds himself alone except for the one bright light in his life-Pearl Frank-and when it comes to Pearl, Boyce wears his heart on his sleeve. When Boyce’s mother resurfaces, our hero knows it is time to move on.
Several of the secondary and supporting characters include Boyce’s friends- Landon/Lucas Maxfield from the original Contours of the Heart series, and Randy Thompson; Boyce’s new mechanic in training Sam, and Boyce’s long lost mother Ruthanne. We are introduced to Pearl’s parents Dr. Thomas and Essie Frank; her BFF Melody Dover who is the bane of Lucas and Boyce’s existence; some of Pearl’s fellow marine biology students, and Pearl’s ex boyfriend Mitchell who is having a difficult time letting go.
SWEET is a wonderful storyline; an emotion laden tale about two friends from different backgrounds who never stopped loving one another over the years. The colorful characters are engaging, enjoyable and charismatic. Boyce and Pearl’s relationship is intimate, passionate and hopeful; from wondrous childhood dreams to sexually intense scenes of romance and imagination Tammara Webber pulls the reader into a storyline that will take hold and never let go.
