I really enjoyed the dynamics between Andi, Rachel, and Kim. What starts off as a joke, opening a cupcake shop, ends up becoming a reality. All three are currently going through individual hardships and we can associate with them. Even though this is Andi's story, they all play a central role. Character development is a bit weak, but then again it's a novella and you don't get in-depth characterization because there's only so much you can cram into 100 pages. Of course we have to have a villain and what a piece of work she is! By end I wanted to shove a few cupcakes down her throat to force feed her.
The romance between Jake and Andi is sweet. Both are willing to have an adult discussion regarding their relationship and how it would affect the business partnership. There's a particular touching scene with Jake and Andi at a fundraiser for cancer research in which Andi says to herself that she shouldn't be there with Jake and his family, but when he grabs her hand, she realizes that he needs her. It's nice to read about two characters that don't have deep dark secrets to hide or another person coming between them. You'll be cheering for this couple as you read along.
My favorite quote:
"You burned cupcakes in your tenth-grade home economics class and set the school on fire."
Darlene Panzera's Sweet on You is a cute read. If you're looking for a quick light read, this is your book. I do have to warn you, you'll be craving cupcakes by the end!

That being said, I enjoyed this light romance, but as someone with financial problems, I found it a little far-fetched. Jake agrees to be a partner in the bakery after only one meeting. The Zumba ladies staging protest marches and sabotaging the bakery was a little corny. Then suddenly, Andi and some of the Zumba ladies are friends, her father decides she's wonderful, and all's well that ends well? That was a bit too much for me.
However, I did like the book and the characters and am anxious to read more of their adventures.
Can't wait for the next!
How distracted did I get???
Sweet On You is a fun sweet read perfect for an afternoon of reading on the beach. Andi a single mom struggling realistically to keep her head above water. She's very easy to root for! The story is enjoyable and fast paced A must for your summer romance list.
