Sweet Surrender by Liliana Hart…ARC Review




It’s been twelve years since Liza Carmichael stepped foot in Surrender, but after her great aunt’s death she has no choice but to return and settle her estate. Which includes the corner bakery that’s been a staple in Surrender for more than fifty years.

After twenty-five years on the job, Lieutenant Grant Boone finds himself at loose ends now that he’s retired. He’s gotten a number of job offers—one from MacKenzie Security—but he’s burned out and jaded, and the last thing he wants to do is carry the burden of another badge and weapon. He almost turns down the invitation from his good friend Cooper MacKenzie to stay as their guest for a few weeks while he’s deciding what to do with the rest of his life. But he packs his bag and heads to Surrender anyway.

The only thing Boone knows is that his future plans don’t include Liza Carmichael. She’s bossy, temperamental, and the confections she bakes are sweet enough to tempt a saint. Thank God he’s never pretended to be one. But after he gets one taste of Liza and things start heating up in the kitchen, he realizes how delicious new beginnings can be.

My Review:

Sweet Surrender is the newest story in author Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie Series as well as novella number 19 in the 2016 1,001 Dark Nights line-up.  I love Ms. Hart’s MacKenzie series and know that each story will be packed with heat, suspense, and emotion.  Sweet Surrender was all then and more!  I loved it!

What do you get when a sassy baker crossed paths with a sexy ex-cop, both looking to forget their pasts and make a clean start?  You get a delicious chance meeting packed with tons of heat and more than a bit of danger when our sexy ex-cop’s former girlfriend shows up with more than a little chip on her shoulder. Few things are worse than a woman scorned with tons of ammo and firepower!

Liza and Grant sure do start off with a bang and only get better and better as the pages turned.  I loved Liza and her sassy, no-nonsense self.  She is strong and capable and knows what she wants out of life.  Grant is equal to Liza in those traits as well and together they really are quite a match!  They were thrown together in one heck of a dangerous circumstance and they quickly realized that fate had a plan for them.  Sometimes things really did happen for a reason and with Liza and Grant it was certainly true.

If you’re looking for an action packed, sexy read, this is a novella for you!  Whether you’re already a fan of Ms. Hart’s or this is your first taste, you won’t be disappointed.
