Ok, so I came across Maya Banks' books by accident and am I glad I did! Her writting is brilliant, believable and she has a way of creating a love story like no other.

This is the latest from her Berkley Heat publishing. The story of Nathan and Julie is emotional, hot and a long time coming. All the other characters from the previous books also are part of this story. It's great to see the unfolding relationships even after "their" books.

Julie has had enough with waiting for Nathan to open his eyes and see her. She decided to move on and contacts Damon (our favorite set up guy) to arrange her fantasy. When Micah meddles and tells Nathan what Julie has planned, sparks fly!

The love is real, the scenes are hot and leave you wanting for more. Can't wait for Micah's story (which is next) because he so has it coming!

HASH(0xa531c5d0) out of 5 stars Eh . . . If you want alpha male leads, try the others in the Sweet series Sept. 26 2010
By shoshannalv - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you prefer stories that feature alpha males, then this definitely isn't for you. For stronger BDSM themes, try Sweet Temptation (rougher sex, pain play); for lighter S&M/pain play, try Sweet Persuasion (very strong dom/sub) and Sweet Surrender (light bondage, d/s). In the Sweet series, this book definitely stands out (and, in my opinion, not in a good way). That said, it's tough to find erotica authors who are actually skilled writers, and Maya Banks is definitely a member of that elite group. So if you're just looking for a romance with lots of hot sex, you'll probably enjoy this.

HASH(0xa531c81c) out of 5 stars "Ho-Hum Story, But With a Teaser of Things to Come!" June 1 2010
By Zelda Gillian - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Plot: The third book in Maya Banks's Sweet series tells Julie's story. A good friend of Faith's and Serena's, Julie is a local salon owner who is infatuated with Faith's colleague Nathan. Nathan is entirely oblivious to Julie's advances until she literally strong-arms him into submission.

Zelda's Take: This might be my least favorite of the Sweet series to date, but there's enough of a teaser in it of things to come that I just couldn't wait to finish it and move on!

Julie is a strong, independent woman that is very sure of herself and her big "tatas" and plump derriere. While I can more than get behind this kind of leading lady in most circumstances, I found myself just not understanding Julie's motives in this book. She says she's done with Nathan, but she's really not. She seems to be a bit more adventurous in her sexual endeavors, but she's really not. And, I gather that she's more dominant, but just don't see it fleshed out enough in her character; she's almost a switch in her actions, or perhaps she just can't make up her mind. Plus, I don't see it as a sign of stable confidence when a female persists after a man that seems to be dumb as rocks and unappreciative. Which brings me to Nathan.

Nathan's ex-military and that's pretty much all we get on him. That, and the fact that Julie has practically been throwing herself at him and he's either been too dense to notice, too meek to act on it or too macho to care. In the end, I think it may be a mixture of the three, which is so not a turn-on for me. Add to this that he seems to like calling females "heifers" as a term of endearment, and it just makes me want to vomit a bit in my mouth. Okay. Didn't like Nathan. Moving on.

What is lovely in this book is that we get to see a bit more into the tragic, tortured life of Micah. In every Sweet book, we seem to get just a little teasing taste of Micah, and he tastes better and better every time. From his threesome with Faith and Gray in book 1 to his lashing of Serena in book 2, book 3 brings us yet another threesome where he "assists" Nathan and Julie. Better yet, we get a true glimpse into Micah's past life and find that there is hope for him yet to truly love and be loved again. In one tender moment Micah submits to his pain (physical and emotional) and it just shocks me that more women aren't falling over themselves to take away the hurt... *raises hand to volunteer* !!!

The next title in the series, Sweet Temptation, is Micah's story, and after all of the teases over the last three books, I just can't wait to submit...

HASH(0xa531cad4) out of 5 stars Sweet Book Dec 23 2009
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Salon owner Julie Stanford wanted Nathan Tucker ever since she gave him his first massage. Getting paid to feel every inch of his body, stripped, oiled, and spread out in front of her? Stuff dreams are made of. But the sexy guy was oblivious to the signals she was sending - until she finished off his final rub-down with something extra. In fact, the best extra he ever had. Unfortunately, he came around too late. Now Julie's moving on...

As far as Erotic books go, this is a decent entry. But I've read better one from Ms. Banks. The plot was pretty good, and the erotic scenes definitely deliver. But the problem is with the characters themselves.

Julie and Nathan appear pretty 2 dimensional. There's very little character development aside from being told that this is who Julie and Nathan are. This leaves the latter half of the book wanting. Still overall a good read and if all you're looking for is eroticism, this does deliver. Although I would consider this one a renter then a keeper.

HASH(0xa531cfcc) out of 5 stars What happens when the "new shiny" wears off? Aug. 3 2012
By Tbascoebuzz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase what happens when the "new shiny" wears off of a relationship???? This question was the crux of Julie Stanfords relationship problems. Always dumped for one reason or another, she develops a fear of long term, lasting relationships, so decides, from now on...SHE'S gonna be the "dump-ER" rather than the "dump-EE". Upward and onward.

This story is all about friendships and relationships....girlfriends who confide everything to one another and rely on each other for support. Guy friends who are drinking buddies; who depend on each other to keep them sane with their female problems and bail them out of trouble.

It's also about sexual relationships and erotic intimacy....discovering your deepest sexuality. This is Nathan Tucker and Julie Stanfords story of finding each other. It's sweet in many ways and sometimes humorous.

Personally, I liked these characters. I liked Julies strong personality. She spoke her mind and you knew where you stood with her. I could understand how this type of strong personality could be attractive to a man and there are no games or facades. She's totally "up front" with her thoughts and feelings. Her brassy personality is also a defensive system she's developed.

Nathan was equally attractive to me, and I certainly could see how these two individuals could be drawn to each opposites definitely do attract. He's such a Macho Gentleman and kind of shy in many ways...sometimes intimidated by what he feels might be his inadequacies. When he finally has had enough of Julie running from him, he takes a stand and it's GAME ON!

Even though this story was entertaining, it wasn't one of Ms. Banks best plots. I don't know if it's because the characters weren't strong central characters in her other stories (but rather stood more in the shadows), or if it was just the plot as a whole. The story is told well and more or less holds the readers interest.... But I found I kept wondering when the frikkin' thing was gonna come to a conclusion and we'd have closure.
