SUNNY - ARC BOOK REVIEW: "Sweet Girl" by Cristin Harber


Nicola Hart grew up under the heels of her older brother and his best friend, Cash Garrison. Years of ignoring the spark between her and Cash didn't keep their attraction from turning into a slow burn. Just shy of her twentieth birthday, Nicola needs to know: he wants her or he doesn't.

She's his best friend's little sister. The definition of hands off. Cash has tried to ignore her for years. Instead, he's looked at every pretty little thing who's crossed his path, all to ignore the girl he seems destined to want. But when half the school is interested in Nicola, it's time to stake a claim and hold the hand of the one he really loves.

Sweet Girl is a novella-length prequel to Garrison’s Creed of the Titan series by Cristin Harber.   Cristin Harber writes great romantic suspense stories.  Sweet Girl proves that she can write one heck of a contemporary romance as well. 

Cash and Nicola are two of my favorite characters in the Titan series.  I love their dynamics.  As a spy, Nicola is a kick-ass heroine.  She is on equal footing with alpha Cash. Their backstory makes me love them that much more. These two are destined to be together. 

Cash is best friends with Nicola’s brother.  As such, he has been a constant fixture in her house for years. They have a growing and evolving relationship, one that culminates into coupledom by the time they get to college.

I enjoy Ms. Harber’s writing.  It is a great balance of sweet and erotic.  This couple have an irresistible attraction and this book hums with sexual tension.  By the time they consummate their relationship, the reader is stretched tighter than the top of bongo drums.  

Being a novella and a prequel, the pace is quick and the author manages to fit in a lot of story in a short space.

Although it is not necessary to read this before Garrision’s Creed, you will enjoy it more if you do.
