[Book Tour] Something Sweeter by Candis Terry #Review

Something Sweeter
Sweet Texas Series #3
By: Candis Terry
Releasing June 24th, 2014


The men in Texas are hard to resist . . . Seattle event planner Allison Lane is an expert at delivering the perfect wedding—even if she might not exactly believe in the whole "'til death do us part" thing. When her father decides to tie the knot with a woman he barely knows, Allison heads to Sweet, Texas, to make sure his new honey is the real deal. What she didn't expect to find at the local honky-tonk was a sexy Southern man as bent on charming her pants off as he is on blowing her "true love doesn't exist" theory all to hell. And they always promise . . .

Veterinarian, former Marine, and Sweet's favorite playboy Jesse Wilder takes one look at Allison and knows she's a handful of trouble he can't deny. But even after a sizzling kiss and obvious mutual attraction, it seems Allison has no such problem. When Jesse uncovers her sweet side, can he crush his playboy image, melt her cynical heart, and change her mind about taking a trip down the aisle?

Candis Terry does it again. She creates a magical town of Sweet with a SWEET cast of characters, SWEET dialogue, and SWEET humor ̶ rolls it all up in a little ball to create one SWEET read.

I’ve been reading all of Ms. Terry’s books in this series and Something Sweeter did not disappoint. She has a real talent in creating realistic, well-rounded characters. They’re not just on-the-surface ̶ they’re like real friends. The Wilder men are definitely my kind of heroes, too.  Ex-military cowboys who love their momma and their families.

Jesse is our hero in this tale and I’ve loved him since book one. Finally I’ve gotten to read his story! The whole town thinks he’s a player ̶ and sure he might’ve been a long time ago, but now he’s ready to settle down, but he wouldn’t let anyone know that. Plus, he’s a vet. Any man who loves animals already grabs my heart.

The heroine in Something Sweeter is Allison, a city girl visiting her father who’s about to get married. She doesn’t believe in happily-ever-afters and Jesse takes it upon himself to prove Allison wrong. Allison is awesome because she has just the right amount of sass that Jesse needs. She always have a great comeback to anything he says.

Despite their chance meeting and re-meeting and their insistence that they are not going to be involved, the two are a perfect match. It takes a bit of time for them to realize it, but in the end … well, you have to read it to find out.

“In unspoken words, holy shit, became the understatement of the year.” 

“Sometimes, when a girl met a new guy, she knew immediately whether she’d have to fake it or whether she’d get the real deal. Everything about Jesse Wilder shouted ‘satisfaction guaranteed.’” 

“But sometimes he needed to just take a moment to breathe and feel the love.” Because sure as shit, something would pop up and threaten to put the kibosh on utopia.”

Ms. Terry has gained a dedicated reader with this series. More!
