Sweet Love by Lauren Accardo | Book Review

I have to say, there is a certain appeal about a book set locally. Sweet Love by Lauren Accardo, book two in the Forever Adirondacks series, is set somewhat local to me. Granted, I am in Syracuse, but the Adirondacks is like a two hour drive depending on how fast you drive. I had liked the first book in the series, Wild LoveAlthough it was not my favorite of all time, I was still curious enough to pick up the second book. And well, it seems my feelings persist.

Sweet Love is about Mila who is a young waitress who has a real talent for baking and pastries. Mila, however, does not believe in herself just yet. She also always holds back from fear of trying and failing. Alongside Mila is Jared Kirkland, brother of the romantic lead from Wild Love. Jared is a real estate agent who is destined for bigger and better things beyond Pine Ridge. Jared has always believed in Mila and her abilities. He has been in denial of his feelings for her, but one day, the two just give into this feelings. Now the question persists — can it turn into anything beyond friends with benefits — especially when Jared wants to leave and Mila wants to stay in Pine Ridge. Oh, and also, there is a baking contest that is pretty big to the story as well.

I was more into Sweet Love than Wild Love. I am not sure if it was just phase of my life or what. However, I could relate to Mila and the whole holding back and lack of confidence thing. It felt like this book was so much more real to me. The pacing was really well done — it felt like I mostly zipped through this book. Additionally, the spice scenes were not cringe as well. And the setting! I loved the setting. I will say that the one douchebag character was a bit cheesy and one dimensional. Overall though, I thought this was a good book and I will be back to read the third in the series.
