I normally love Susan Mallerys series and don't worry the new "Sweet" series is another favourite of mine.
Book 3 in the series is called "Sweet Trouble" and is about Jesse finally coming back after she left Seatlle pregnant 5 years ago because of trouble with her sister Nicole and her boyfriend Matt.
But she's not coming home alone, with her is her adorable little boy Gabe who's actually the reason for her return because he wants to meet his father Matt.
Ok, Jesse was kind of a bad girl in the first two books, "Sweet talk" and "Sweet spot", but even more was she a young woman not too sure about herself and her surroundings and on the search to find her place. Ok, she made some stupid mistakes but when reading the book you understand why she did them.
Actually Jesse is my favourite sister because she is so human and managed to make the best out of her situation. She is a great mother to Gabe, way more self-confident than she was 5 years ago and finally ready to be a full member of the bakery.
Matt is still bitter because he thinks Jesse cheated on him and he manages to stay bitter through nearly the whole book (dumb, but hey he's a man, what do you expect). He nearly destroys his chance of a Happy Ending with Jesse and Matt but thankfully he comes to his senses before its too late.
At the end it's up to Jesse to decide if she trusts the new/old Matt and especially herself to take a another chance with him.
All in all I loved this book and can recommend the "Sweet" series to anyone who loves romances and a little sister interaction.
Next up is the "Lone Star Series" and I'm sure Susan Mallery produced another hit with this.
Enjoy.
S.M.

This is the best romantic novel I have ever read!
The flashback are so nice to understand what happened before (if you did not read anything of the previous 2 books of the series) and Jesse is for sure a great heroine!

Couldn't stand the characters 25 Jun. 2009
By Gemma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'll admit that I haven't read the other books in the series, so I might have been missing out on some of this story. But maybe not, because the reason I didn't like this story is that I found the characters so unlikeable.

The heroine wasn't too bad, but really, who ends up in bed with their sister's man? Even if, like she claims, "nothing happened", why would you be in that situation if things are totally innocent? And yes, kissing is cheating--you don't have to actually have sex with someone for it to "count".

And the hero! I hardly know where to start with him. He is unjustifiably angry at the heroine, and his reasons didn't hold water. He claimed that she should have let him know she was having his kid. Umm...hello? She did! She told him she was pregnant, she told him it was his, she even offered to submit to a DNA test to prove it, but he would have none of it. He refused to even consider the posibility that it was his child. What was she supposed to do, hold a gun to his head and force him to be a part of his son's life?

The hero decides he's been done wrong (although how he gets there I'll never understand), and decides to get revenge on the hero by destroying her life and suing for custody. When his lawyer tells him that such action means he might end up having to take care of the kid, he replies that "that's what nannies and boarding schools are for." What a heartless pig! Children are not meant to be used as pawns in adult power struggles. Ripping an innocent child away from a loving mother (and the only parent he's ever known) and them abandoning him to be raised by strangers just to satisfy a petty need for revenge is just plain wrong!

I couldn't stand the hero's "poor pity me" attitude. He's the one who refused to take responsibility for his child. He made his own mess. This is not the way a hero is supposed to act. I spent the whole book wanting to punch him in the nose.

I've enjoyed books by Susan Mallery before, but I recommend skipping this one.

Sweet end to the Bakery Sisters series 23 Sept. 2008
By Tracy Vest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Jesse Keyes is the ne'er do well sister who left town pregnant under a cloud of suspicion after failing to get her family and boyfriend to believe her when she was suspected of sleeping with her brother in law. It's five years later and little Gabe has been asking about his father, so she decides it's time to return to Seattle to heal old wounds with her sister and with Matt. Only Matt is just as excited now as he was five years ago and suspects Jesse's true motivation is his vast fortune. But one look at Gabe and he sees the resemblance. Rather than blaming himself for not believing her, he instead decides to destroy her, by making her fall for him all over and then getting full custody of Gabe. But when his feelings start to change, he is not sure if he wants his heart ruled by passion or revenge. Her attempts at reconciling with older sister Nicole are met with trepidation at first, particularly when Nicole discovers that Jesse is so grounded - enough so that she wants back into the bakery to prove herself. Armed with a recipe of to die for brownies, she tries to revamp the bakery, despite Nicole's misgivings.

Mallery's final installment in the Bakery sisters trilogy is an interesting story, and would easily be my favorite if it weren't for one thing - the constant flashbacks. I would have preferred a prologue that contained all this material then the jump five years later. All it does it confuse the flow of the story. The character of Matt is kind of a jerk. Jesse really should have made him squirm a bit more. And Nicole, who was so nasty in the first two books has grown and is finally a mother, but still is somewhat bitter, making her still a character you wouldn't want as a friend. But Mallery ends the series on a high note - despite the flaws, it is a sweet and uplifting story, and little Gabe will steal readers hearts.

Worst.Hero.Ever. 21 Jan. 2010
By Solla Sollew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've been reading romances for over 30 years now. This is the first book that has EVER made me wish for anything but a happily-ever-after. I would have been quite pleased if the heroine had dumped him and found someone else.

There is forgiveness, and there is being a sucker. The heroine jumped across that line when she took him back.

Very good ending for the series (no spoilers) 28 Aug. 2008
By RTS1231 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Over the span of the "Bakery" sisters series, this one takes the reader forward in the story and really provides definition to the characters. The first two books happen back to back, while this is 5 years beyond, with flash back to the time when Nicole and Jeese pulled apart. Pros: well written, and fully discussed issues of regret, fear of rejection, and redemption. Cons: Repedative if you read the series back to back. Also, in the first 2 books, there was little credit given to the relationship of Matt and Jesse. It took me a while to come around and see it fully. It seems the relationship was not very long. That is an issue I have with this series...the timelines don't always match up. But overall a very satisfying end to the series.

Lots of stuggles, but still a pretty good ending 17 Nov. 2010
By Anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
"Sweet Trouble" is the conclusion to the Bakery Sisters trilogy, which follows Nicole, Claire and Jesse Keyes. This book is just as complex and ripe with emotion as the other two, actually probably more so than that first two.

Years ago Jesse was caught in bed with Nicole's husband. Jesse swore up and down there was no actual affair, though Nicole didn't believe her and basically shunned Jesse from the family. Feeling betrayed and alone, Jesse flees town but not before becoming pregnant by a man who also turned his back on her after hearing about the so-called affair with Nicole's husband. The book opens years later after Jesse has become a single mother and is working a full-time job to support herself and her young son.

She seeks out Matt, her son's father and ex-boyfriend, to tell him about their son. Matt still harbors a lot of anger and hatred toward Jesse for her supposed affair and actually doesn't even believe the boy is his. Then when he realized the boy is his (after a DNA test) he grows even more angry with Jesse for leaving town knowing she was carrying his baby. Jesse tries to remind Matt she did try to tell him about the baby but he refused to believe the baby was his. This point doesn't seem to matter to Matt as he continues to hate Jesse. He spends much of the book plotting against Jesse and finding a way to destroy her by taking her son away from her. Needless to say, because of his he comes off as an insensitive bastard.

Then there's all the tension between Jesse and Nicole, who still refuses to believe Jesse didn't actually sleep with Nicole's husband. Jesse spends much of the book isolated from her own family. In fact the only person who ever has a kind word for her is Claire. I kept waiting for Jesse to tell everyone to go to hell, because they all treat her so horribly. Although Nicole did redeem herself in her own story, she drops back down to the same immaturity level as the first book by playing the "poor me, I had to shoulder all the responsibility" game.

Jesse and Matt eventually fall back in love, which felt forced and unnatural considering that 90% of the book he wanted nothing to do with them. At the end of the book, the family does resolve their issues. I just wished there hadn't been so much animosity between everyone.
