⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Not what I expected, but really enjoyed

Sweet on You

Sweet and emotional with some humor, this definitely isn’t the story I expected it to be but I enjoyed it all the same. Based on the blurb, I thought this would be an enemies to lovers type romance with the hero reluctantly winning over our heroine, but this is definitely not that. It’s much more a story about two people who have been flirting for years but circumstances have prevented them from moving forward. Lex would love nothing more than to date Ronnie (and she would too), but he’s got a lot going on in his life at the moment and he’s not willing to play with her feelings if he’s unable to follow through on a relationship.

The writing is great – I really felt like these two grew and connected. Though I would’ve loved more of the focus to be about these two growing together as a couple (rather than the big secret), we still got to see Ronnie and Lex as individuals who fit together perfectly. I never would’ve expected a baker and a gym owner to be a perfect fit, but they actually have a lot in common and their lifestyle choices sync up very well. Lex really steals the show here – he is not the alpha male you see in a lot of romance novels, he’s just a great, sweet guy with a complicated history. He’s made a lot of changes in his life (for the better), and balances out Ronnie’s personality well. She may be a bit of a ballbuster with a strong personality, but we see the softer side of her with Lex. Overall, it’s a solid story with a hero that’s easy to like. I would definitely check out more by this author in the future, especially since she introduced some intriguing side characters here. I received a free copy via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
