Adult Contemporary Romance 
She’s his boss. He doesn’t care. This office isn’t big enough for the two of them…

When Rory Clarke ends up hiring the guy she spent one steamy night with to be her administrative assistant, she's determined to keep things professional.
Lucas Blaine has other plans for her. He wants Rory, and it’s hard to resist his stunning blue eyes, chin dimple and the way he fills out a suit. Everywhere she looks, there he is, giving her a panty-melting smile and pulling her away for the most amazing (and satisfying) sex she’s ever had in her life.
What starts off as one sexual encounter turns into multiple trysts in and out of the office and the lines she’d tried to draw so carefully are blurring. But the closer they get, the more Rory realizes that there are things about Lucas she doesn’t know, things he’s hiding from her. She’ll have to decide if she can surrender to her feelings or get out while she still can.

Thoughts:
Sweet Surrender is a pretty average read. Nothing screamed 'I must finish this book now!'  I did not have a problem staying on track with the story though. I enjoy that the author switched the normal male boss, female employee roles around to a female boss.  The story also surprised me because I thought that I had an idea about where it was going but I was wrong.

I enjoyed the heroine, Rory's, character. She is independent, knows what she wants, and how to get it, but is still close to her friends and parents. I liked that underneath the fashionable suits Lucas wore he had some surprises.  He isn’t the normal stereotypical dark hair, muscle bound Alpha that most books have. Him and Rory were good together, and I liked the back and forth banter between them. It's well written, and I am hoping that the next book in the series takes it up a notch.
