VBT Review: Sweetest Mistake

Sweetest Mistake
Sweet Texas Series #2
By: Candis Terry
Releasing December 31st, 2013

When friends become lovers . . .

Firefighter and former Marine Jackson Wilder has tough guy down to an art, but he’s learned the hard way that promises were made to be broken. Abigail Morgan was once his best friend, his first kiss, his first love, his first everything. He’d just forgotten to mention all that to her and she blew out of his life. Five years later, she’s back and he’s battling a load of mistrust for her disappearing act. But for some reason he just can’t keep his lips—or his hands—to himself.

It can lead to disaster or . . .

When her stint as a trophy wife abruptly ends, Abby returns home to Sweet, Texas, and comes face-to-face with Jackson—her biggest and sexiest mistake. Time and distance did nothing to squash her love for the act-first-think-later stubborn hunk of a man, and when he suggests they renew their old just-friends vow, Abby realizes she wants more. She’d cut and run once. Could she do it again? Or could she tempt him enough to break his promise?

Review Rating: 5 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review: So, I'm a diehard Candis Terry fan. All the way. I have been ever since discovering Second Chance at the Sugar Shack. Her stories have a lovely small town feel which I wholeheartedly enjoy, they are full of laughs, characters you just want to take home with you and hang out with, or maybe just move to their town. Like Sweet, Texas. Yes, i wanna go! Where do I sign up? How do I get there?

I questioned Candis the other day, wondering how is it she just gets better and better?  Sweetest Mistake goes down so far as my favorite Candis Terry book.  Firstly, I LOVE the Wilder family! They have their share of quirks, fights, and drama of course, but whatever happens, they work through it, because that's what family does.   So, one by one, the Wilder boys are succumbing to love.   Now, it's Jackson's turn. Oh, but he's NOT going to make it easy. Nope. Stinkin' stubborn man. But that's okay, I love him anyway, sexy stubbornness and all. 

So here's the deal. Jackson and Abby grew up as best friends. But, a few years ago, it began to grow into something more. Stubborn pride and a few choices later, Abby left town not knowing what she meant to Jackson.

Now both are facing each other again, suffering a heartache of their own. Yeah, the sparks begin. The walls are up, but we all know what's bound to happen.  Those walls are going to come down.  That's just how love works.

In a nutshell, I loved this book. Lots of emotions, lots of family fun... The one thing I felt a little thrown off about was near the end. The big moment seemed abrupt, but it still came together well.  Can't wait for the next installment!

  1. I haven't read any of these books but I am heading over to Amazon right after I finish my comment. First off I love any story that has a fireman in it since I am married to a real life professional firefighter and my heart truly does belong to a fireman. Thanks so much for the chance to win such an awesome prize and thanks for the book recommendation. I love discovering new authors in the genres I love. And I want that necklace even if I don't win I'm gonna have to track it down on the internet somewhere.
