Candis Terry returns to Sweet, Texas for the last time when former Marine Jake Wilder discovers how truly sweet love can be.
When the one you’ve always wanted
At sixteen, Annabelle Morgan hoped her crush on Jake Wilder was just a passing phase. Now she’s twenty-nine and nothing has changed except Jake. The once-carefree marine has come home with a giant chip on his shoulder. He insists a single mom like Annie deserves more than he can offer. Yet no matter how gruff his gorgeous exterior may be, Jake s toe-curling kisses convince her that this attraction is definitely mutual.
Becomes the one who wants you back
Butting heads with feisty Annie was always a thrill. Add other body parts to the mix, and Jake is in serious trouble. He can’t be a forever-and-family guy and Annie s not a friends-with-benefits kind of woman. But love has a way of changing the best-laid plans, and surrender has never been so tempting.
The outcome is truly sweet.
My Thoughts:It's always good when a story can put a smile on your face, and Truly Sweet certainly does that. We have finally arrived to final Wilder boy, Jake. Now Jake has just returned from the sandbox and has no clear direction to go. However, he knows that he's damage goods can't save anyone, after all he lost his best friend.
Now Annie has been loved with Jake forever, but she would never really reveal that. Nope she rather exchange barbs than reveal her true feelings. Yep, we hide those feelings just in case they don't reciprocate them. She also has to lookout for her son, who is the most important man in her life.
Truly Sweet is definitely a sweet read. It will have you laughing out loud and make you feel all sort of feelings. We get to watch Jake try to avoid his feelings for Annie cause she's just not a one time kind of girl. We watch Annie trying to be the friend Jake needs. Good thing they see that it's perfectly fine to fall for one another. One of the things that helps Jake is:
"Verbally giving it life changes a lot. Admitting the truth. Lashing out at the unfairness gives you the power to fight back. To breathe. To live. To find happiness you might never have imagined."However, true to Wilder men standards it takes Jake a few tries, and he's lucky to have Annie who is truly patient. In essence Truly Sweet definitely has that sugary sweet ending that makes you wish there was more to come, but all things must come to an end.
