Review: Truly Sweet by Candis Terry

"When the one you've always wanted "

At sixteen, Annabelle Morgan hoped her crush on Jake Wilder was just a passing phase. Now she's twenty-nine and nothing has changed except Jake. The once-carefree marine has come home with a giant chip on his shoulder. He insists a single mom like Annie deserves more than he can offer. Yet no matter how gruff his gorgeous exterior may be, Jake's toe-curling kisses convince her that this attraction is definitely mutual.

"Becomes the one who wants you back "

Butting heads with feisty Annie was always a thrill. Add other body parts to the mix, and Jake is in serious trouble. He can't be a forever-and-family guy and Annie's not a friends-with-benefits kind of woman. But love has a way of changing the best-laid plans, and surrender has never been so tempting.

"The outcome is truly sweet."

Terri's Thoughts

**I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher Avon via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is July 28th 2015**

This is the second book in this series that I have read and I must admit that I have not read it in order.  I read the third book Something Sweeter and then this one which is the fifth book (with a few novellas thrown in between).  These stories can be read as stand alones however there is mention of the previous characters and storylines as the series focuses on a group of brothers, each with his own story.

I must say that there must be something in the water in Sweet Texas to have such a group of good looking, I'll say it hot, men.  I can't imagine what that would do for the productivity of a small town with so many woman daydreaming about these hot men.  I am sure the morale would be great with the odd cat fight thrown in as the woman battle for their affection.  I digress.

I find that Terry's writing never leaves me disappointed.  She builds strong likeable people in both her male and female characters which makes it easy to be invested in the story.  In the case of Annie and Jake, the way they constantly butted heads had me smiling.  It reminded me of my husband and I.  We never fight but we are constantly challenging each other and get in to the best debates.  Same goes here. kind of know how the story will end up.  Let's get real, this is the last story of the series, there is a theme here.  What you don't know is how it will get there and that is where you buckle up and enjoy the ride.

I enjoyed this story, as well as the others from the series I have read and I would recommend it.  Since I enjoy her writing style I will venture to see some of Terry's other works.
