This is a story which …like the title says…is sweet. BUT don’t let that sweetness fool you. There is enough passion and heat to melt your Kindle.
But the author has found the perfect balance between the two.
Savannah is a great character. She is strong and sassy and is not afraid to face her fears. She takes a chance in this novel and it brings her the greatest reward…love. I heart her!
Parker…SWEET MOTHER OF MARY…Parker! He is the ultimate Southern Gentleman. Gorgeous, charming and funny. I plan on moving to the South to find my own Southern hottie! ;)
I loved how this story made me feel. Made me smile and made my heart melt. It showed that one should never give up, to not be afraid to take a chance…it just might change your life.
This is one of my TOP reads so far this year and I cannot recommend this story and author enough!
FIVE SWEET AND SASSY STARS!
The story between Savannah and Parker is sweet, heart-warming and feel-good. Yes, there are some itty bitty parts as well that will break your heart, but overall this is a story about finding love in unexpected places and when you least expect it.
I am never a fan of giving too much info of a book away, so I won't! The things I will tell you are the following:
The story will make you feel good and close the book with a smile on your face. I can't really describe it better, but while reading the story you just feel your heart swell with love for the characters and even shed a tear here and there. Fabiola knows when that happened for me, because I told her I was sitting in a train full of people when tears were in my eyes. But not because it was so terrible, but because there are moments in there that are simply heart-breaking and yet wonderful.
The characters Fabiola created are easily likeable as well. I mean, who doesn't know the feeling of not finding the right guy for you and slowly becoming desperate? I know I sure do. So Savannah was definitely easy to relate to for me. Also, the fact that she owned a bakery made me love her all the more. It just fit in the whole theme of sweetness for me. She's a passionate and dedicated woman that would do anything for the people she loved and would protect them with everything she had. I loved that about her. I loved how she cared about Parker, about her grandmother, but also about her store workers. And it hasn't always been easy for her in life. So the combination of her independence as well as her willingness to help others out sold me on her characters in only a few chapters.Read more ›
This book was definitely sweet and wild. I am more than Sweet on Wilde. Parker Wilde is a great character, full of charm and such a romantic. He's very good looking, the kind that makes your stomach have butterflies just by looking at him. Life has not be so kind to Parker. He suffered an injury while playing in the minors, so no chance of him going pro baseball player. He was lucky to have such a great family around him, because like most of us he has an ex girlfriend and she is an ex for a reason. Some women just don't realise how lucky they are.
Savannah who owns a bakery shop in her home town, made a pact with her best friend, not really thinking it would ever happen but alas life is so unpredictable and here she is signing up for an on line dating site, the joys of being single. Savannah has had a series of bad dates and just wants to give up. She is busy one night explaining to her friend, Jake about the randomness of some of the guys on line. Funny stories but so true unfortunately. When she hears someone laughing at her, clearly eavesdropping on her conversation. She dislikes him instantly, how rude she thought. Whilst reading the book I had a feeling that something bad was looming and we were going to either see a break up or someone cheating or a sudden change of events, however we are rewarded with a charming and sweet read all round. Savannah becomes sweet on Wilde. This is a lovely read, the characters are fun. Some laugh out loud moments. Above all else it was nice and refreshing to read something that actually could happen in real life.Read more ›
My main problem concerned the plot, or rather the lack of it.
Nothing much happened till way past the middle of the book (and at 283 pages, it was no short story or novella either). It wasn’t even particularly character-led. Basically, the whole plot consisted of just ‘this happens, then that happens’ – there was no real action or conflict.
Having said all that, however, I did like the characters. Both Savannah and Parker were realistic and relatable three dimensional characters – real people, not just fictional characters. To give credit where it’s due, Fabiola Francisco is great at creating lifelike and approachable characters.
As it turned out, I have to wonder if the whole set-up with the online dating business was really necessary. It didn’t really end up adding to the story at all because Savannah could have just met Parker at Southern anyway, without all the online dating set-up. I also found myself questioning why every single person they knew seemed to be supportive of them. Whatever Savannah did, everyone she came into contact with seemed to be proud of her, urging her to follow her dreams. This goes back to my main point – this book needed more conflict. We needed a villain, but there was no-one there. Everything just fell perfectly, unrealistically, into place and all reasoning and logistics flew straight out of the window.
Another thing the author did well was to perfectly capture the feelings of a long-distance relationship. The feelings of loneliness, irrational jealousy, always waiting… they were all there, and used well.Read more ›
