Sweet is a shining example of Locke’s talent, with words on the page masterfully woven. It casts a spell that makes reality fade away, while every part of you is enveloped in a world filled with love.
I love how Locke’s books promise an escape from all of life’s stresses, a love story, and the fortified bond of a loving family; you’ll walk away with love in your heart and a lightness inside you.
Paige, fictional or not, was the person I needed today. From her wit to the broken pieces of her heart, her strength as she battled her own thoughts bled through the pages. This reminded me that while she was fictional, I wasn’t alone. She was sassy, witty, and underneath it all was a girl who was repressing her desire to live her most fulfilling life. The weight of the past was preventing her from taking the risk and losing her heart.
Nate *sigh*, single dad looking for his forever woman, swoony with a side of broody, add a dash of jealousy, and he transforms into the possessive, growly alpha that wet dreams are made of… I’m speechless… From “I’m going to woo her” to “Grrr….mine.” What more could you want? Well, he’s a single dad who adores his child above all else, so if anyone ever tells you that there’s no such thing as the perfect man, Nate Hughes is here (fictionally) to prove them wrong.
Their chemistry was off the charts from the start. It was bolstered by the friendship they had, but it was also more than that. It was as though from the moment they met they had begun building a home together, but neither one realized it was happening. Everything between them was effortless, even with the push and pull between them. Their flirty banter acted as foreplay, and it was only a matter of time before one of them snapped.
Nate and Paige made every heartstring tingle. Every emotion the character experiences hits you right in the gut. There were times when I just wanted to hug them. Despite their varying upbringings, it seemed as if the moment they met, their souls recognized the pain within. As a result, they became one another’s solace in the midst of life’s chaos.
Sweet is the most aptly named book in history…
An intoxicating blend of explosive chemistry, a sweet swoony hero, a sassy heroine, entertaining banter, feels, and steam, set in a world that offers a sense of home and unconditional love, allows you to feel lighter long after reading the last word.
