For some Maya Banks fans this book may not be as loved as some of her others in this series. Pretty much the Sweet series started out being a submissive/BDSM type of series, with the exception of Sweet Seduction which featured Julie and Tucker, the books were pretty hard core sex with a lot of interaction in the BDSM world.
In Sweet Possession, Maya Banks brings in two characters, that while the sex scenes are hot and very passionate, they are pretty much vanilla compared to the other books in the series. While I believe that Maya Banks is one of the best in the Erotic Romance genre, and does a great job in writing the very erotic BDSM style of books, I'm just as happy with her less than erotic books, as well.
In Sweet Possession Conner Malone, Faith's brother, has met his match. Conner has been asked by his father to protect a pop diva, Lyric Jones, when she comes to stay in Houston for a couple of weeks. Lyric is being stalked by a fan and there is a worry that the stalking may turn violent.
From the beginning Conner is attracted to Lyric, but he can't help but be attracted to the superstar. Lyric isn't all that happy with the disapproving looks she see from Conner either. Despite the fact they don't like each other much they much they resign themselves to being together. Soon Conner can't think of a better place he'd like to be and for the first time Lyric is learning to trust someone.
As usual, Maya Banks' writing shines in Sweet Possession. She creates a world of strong characters and real people. There are scenes where readers will laugh out loud with the antics of Lyric and her three new friends and the way Conner reacts those scenes.
She’s a singer who lives for the spotlight—and can’t resist her adoring fans…
Outrageous and out-of-control, Lyric Jones is a spoiled pop star who lives hard and fast, always outrunning her past and the nightmares that haunt her. She’s used to getting what she wants—groupies included—because she can’t stand to be alone. So in bed, it’s the more the merrier, even if it means closing off the deepest part of herself…
He’s a hands-on bodyguard—and a one-woman man.
There is nothing Connor Malone wants to do less than babysit the celebratty songstress while she’s on vacation. But part of him relishes taming Lyric and showing her what it’s like to be possessed—body and soul—by one man. And though Lyric’s crazy antics nearly drive Connor to the edge, his quiet intensity penetrates her defenses, leaving them both vulnerable to the secrets that could topple Lyric from the stage.
