Kelley does an excellent job of delivering an engaging cast of characters. Murphy and Livvy are a sizzling combination; they not only share heat between the sheets, but entertaining banter as well. Livvy’s strong, yet feminine personality complements Murphy’s macho ruggedness perfectly. In addition to the sexy duo, an amusing set of secondary characters takes this story to the next level, adding both insight and humor along the way. Sweet as Sin is filled with sensual scenes and from page one readers are immediately drawn in and can’t help but stick around to find out whether Livvy and Murphy will get their happily-ever-after.

When his neighbor’s bra accidentally floats into his backyard, John Murphy is intrigued. Returning the lacy garment, he comes face-to-face with Livvy Anderson, a feisty pastry chef who owns a struggling bakery. Murphy is immediately drawn to Livvy, but she could care less about him - that is until she realizes that he’s J.B. Flannigan, author of a best-selling young adult series.

Prior to meeting Livvy, Murphy was suffering from a serious case of writer’s block. Once the two get together, inspiration strikes again for Murphy. The couple agrees to have a “no strings attached” fling. But after Murphy’s writer’s block comes to an end and business begins booming at Livvy's bakery, she realizes that she wants more from Murphy than just a fling — can Livvy convince him to make their arrangement more permanent?
