Product Description

A new steamy, lighthearted contemporary romance from New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Georgia Cates.

He's going to tutor her in more ways than one.

My best friend's little sister--that's all Claudia Bliss is to me.
My head keeps trying to convince my heart, but both know it's a damn lie.

It's her face I see every time I close my eyes.
It's her lips I long to kiss.
It's her touch I crave in the dark.
She's the one I love... but wanting Claudia is wrong.

She's been like a little sister to me since the day she was born. Now, everything between us is changing--including the special bond we've always shared. It's stronger than ever... and becoming something so different. Something so hot. Something so forbidden.

My little dove is growing up.
Doesn't matter how wrong it is, I can't stop wanting her.

I will have her.

Bram Windsor. I have loved him my entire life.

For years, I was nothing more than one of the boys to him. Owen's little sister. The pest who tagged along everywhere the boys went. But now, everything has changed.

I've grown up and it's time Bram sees me for what I am. A woman. A sexual being who wants him. A virgin more than ready to give herself to him.

I don't care what our friends or family say. I love him and everything about being together feels right.

I will have him.

***Note from Georgia--
Sweet Torment is a 33k+ word standalone novella. It is a rewrite of a 12k word short story previously published as Cherry Popper under the pen name Jade Sinner and is no longer available for purchase.
HEA. No cheating. No cliffhanger.

5.0 out of 5 stars ~ 5 Little Dove Stars ~ 2 June 2017
By Jennifer H. - Published on

Georgia Cates always knows how to deliver an excellent story. This book was no different.

I love her storylines and she always delivers lovable characters. Her books always suck me in and I never want them to end.

Sweet Torment is a standalone novella told in Dual POV. It's a forbidden Friends to lovers story. What makes this story forbidden is the age difference between Claudia and Bram. I love that it felt natural between these two friends and that Georgia waited until Claudia was of legal age. She made Bram a responsible male which is truly refreshing for a 23 year old Hero.

So what happens when you fall for your Best Friends little sister and she isn't quite 18 yet?? Well read Sweet Torment to see how Bram and Claudia handle it. This was a sweet, sexy and entertaining Friends to lovers story. It's a quick read but it lacked for nothing. I thought the storyline was well thought out and the characters were very well developed. The flow and pace of this story was spot on. Even though this is a novella, nothing was rushed.

I would love to see Georgia write another book for Owen (Bram's BFF & Claudia's brother) and for Rivers (Owen & Bram's BFF). I think they could each have an interesting story to tell.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a forbidden Friends to lovers story. If you are a fan of Georgia's books already you don't want to miss this gem!!!

** spoiler alert **

✓ young virgin heroine
✓ alpha male
✓ possessive male
✓ babies
✓ pregnancy
✓ no cheating

Well, Georgia Cates has been a favorite author of mine ever since I read her Beauty series. Since then she has come out with several different books. Some I've loved just as much as the Beauty series, others have just been ok for me. This one is right up there with the Beauty series, almost, since it was just a novella and Beauty was a 3 book serial.

In this little novella we get a tale of forbidden love. The heroine, Claudia, is the little sister of Owen, Bram (the hero's) best friend. They all grew up together. For Bram there was always something special about Claudia. He always loved her, knew there was something about her. That love changed to something different, to a passionate love when she was older and close to turning 18. (This bothered me a bit because as I've said before, my step-daughter is 17.) However, I've read many historical books with a young heroine so I accepted it, because, hey it's fiction. :)

Bram and Claud admit their love for one another early on in the story (it is a novella). The rest of the story is them struggling to wait until she is 18 before they consummate their relationship. They have quite a few smexy scenes leading up to their first time.

Of course, the brother finds out, which leads to an intense scene but it was short and didn't take up too much time.

The ending was great with an epilogue I loved. I'm a sucker for pregnancy stories and babies!!! This one had plenty of those!!

I highly recommend this one for anyone who enjoys the things I checked off above. :)

Oh and for the first time, that I can recall, Cates wrote about some back door action, but it was quite tastefully done.


♥ "Claudia is my heart. My everything. I will never do anything to hurt her.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, sweet and sensual another hit from my favorite author 5 June 2017

Bram and Claudia have known each other their whole life. Owen is Bram's best friend and Claudia is Owens baby sister. Bram grew up protecting Claudia, helping her and watching her. Bram realized he always loved his "little Dove" but as she matured his feelings became deeper. Because she wasn't 18 years old he keep his distance , graduated from college and returned to their home town. Bram is six years older then Claudia, he hadn't seen her in 8 months , he went over to Owens and she came in . She was more beautiful then ever before, when she jumped in his arm ( like she has for years) he became aroused . She was about to graduate from high school and having trouble in calculus, so Owen asked his best friend Bram to tutor his baby sister. They ended up confessing there love for each other but waited until was 18 to have sex and then tell their loved ones. But, Owen found out and beat Bram for touching his sister, Bram could of fought back and beat Owen but he took his punishment. He was determined to be with his Dove, she told Bram she wanted to be a photographer and wasn't planning on going to college. He proposed to her and they go to her parents for their blessing. Doves parents are both educators and want her to go to school first and then marry after she graduated. But things change during the summer when she becomes pregnant. A must read very well-written happily-ever after.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was cute, then I got mad. 8 June 2017
By Marissa - Published on

So I realize that this is a novella and novellas do not afford a whole lot of wiggle-room in the area of the timeline. There are a lot of things that have to be glossed over and some opportunities are missed. That’s okay. Novellas are typically meant to be short and fluffy pieces that bring a smile to your face.

That almost worked with this one. I admit that I did enjoy the story of Bram and Claudia. It was fun and cute. I’m just a sucker for the best friend’s sibling cliché. I also liked the fact that Bram made it a point to wait until she was 18 to actually do anything other than make out. Yay for not writing him as a sleaze-ball.

(Spoiler alert below)

I think where it fell to a three-star rating for me was the conversation toward the end where they were waiting for the results of the pregnancy test. Claudia says that she was responsible for the birth control. Uhm, excuse me?! It takes two to tango. You are BOTH responsible for birth control. She may have been responsible for her pills, yes, but he’s supposed to be a responsible party to this, too. That burns me so bad. Sex education. Please get some. It is not all on the woman to be responsible for avoiding pregnancy.

All that said, I really did enjoy their story. I just got really peeved when I got to that part with the pregnancy test and it caused the rating to take a little bit of a nose-dive. I'd say maybe wait for it to be free if possible.
3.0 out of 5 stars I just loved GC Sin Trilogy so when I seen this one ... 11 June 2017
By Elizabeth Bennet - Published on

I just loved GC Sin Trilogy so when I seen this one and read the idea behind it sounded a bit reminiscent of the series. My only hesitation was the word Novella in the title but if you look at the print length it shows 456 pages. I have seen this happen before and it usually means spacing is different or something like that either way I went for it. So with that in mind the book goes to about 26% on my Kindle and there is actually another book that follows by Cates called Tap. My rating does not reflect my misconception more so my overall believably of the novella working for me. The length does rip some of my enjoyment that I experienced with the Sin Trilogy. It did help that Claudia and Bram have known each other so long. It saves the author time of convincing her audience of their bond. I missed watching that with this one. Claud has an overprotective brother who is also best friends with Bram.

You know this from the book blurb so that isn't a surprise but more detailing on B&C's relationship could have only helped strengthen my love for the couple. Maybe I'm just too old to get the angle on their relationship but I didn't feel as strongly drawn in with them. He was protective and possessive but two months prior to seeing Claud for so long he's out man whoring and his friends all know and expect no less from him. They all seem cut of the same cloth, refusing to grow up. Claudia changes the way Bram feels things he once believed seem different and she becomes his everything. Once that has been overcome and the couple confess how they feel it is the pair fighting their hormones and waiting until after her 18th birthday. I really think the couple needed more time to make the reader fall truly in love with the idea of them. It was all very simple with minimal conflict or any kind of competition. She is willing to do anything to please him and he is 6 years older and wants to protect her.

Bram also set such high expectations for Claud. While he bounced around with 15 or more woman in his 23 years of life he twinges because she tried kissing another man. She is in love with Bram and because she is so young he looks at her like his little sister. It's painful to see him carry on with other woman so she reacts as any woman would and wants to know if what she feels is real. His reaction to me was hypocritical considering that was all she did, no touching or anything but a kiss. Him sharing his remorse for all his prior activity would have made him look better to me. This is a modern based book you'll know that because even though our h is a virgin she doesn't carry herself as one with Bram. She talks a little dirty at times and that too took some of the sweetness, imo, I wanted to see from the lovers. I still like the dedication the two had for the other and that there were no other scenes with Bram with anyone other than Claudia. A past lover appearance to cause some conflict would have helped make the book a bit more intriguing. Even another on Claudia's side would have been nice than he could have showed that alpha/ possessive side but that was not that kind of book. She did have 7 different guys wanting to take her to prom and the guy who she planned to go with is clearly nothing more than a friend. There is an epilogue that showed 5 years later and I liked seeing that. Love seeing the mini Abraham and his inquisitive nature was not fully supportive of the new babies choice of names. All I could think of is Tonto's horse from the Lone Ranger. Still I want to try to continue forward with Tap and see how my experience goes there. Enjoy!
