BLOG TOUR: Sweet on You by Kate Perry


Thanks to AToMR Tours for hosting this blog tour. Don't forget to follow the rest of the tour! I'm sharing my review of Sweet on You by Kate Perry today. Happy reading!

*****************************

Recap:

Daniela wants an old abandoned building, intending to turn it into a soup kitchen. She’s tired of baking shows and rich people that cherish her creations rather than eat them, so when she finds a starving family, she’s determined to fulfill this new dream. Nico has overcome his past and made a name for himself, as well as a LOT of money. When the building his brother was killed at goes up for sale, he’s determined to buy it and destroy it. What neither anticipates is how complicated the other would truly make the situation.

Thoughts:

This was a sweet and romantic story that was more than just romance. The family dynamics were every bit as compelling as the romance, if not more so. I like that the community is so supportive and friendly and makes me want to read more from this series. You could tell from certain characters that there’ve been previous stories, but they don’t tie together in such a way as to make you feel like you’ve missed something important. It’s more like a tease to make you want to check out the previous books if you haven’t already read them.

I do have to say that while I liked Daniela and Nico and thought each of their intentions were noble and all, I actually liked the secondary romance and drama better than the primary one. Marley and Brian are adorable and I got so attached to them that it broke my heart when the core of their conflict came to a head.

My only complaint is that the primary romance felt a little superficial at first, which is probably why I liked Marley and Brian’s story better than Daniela and Nico’s. Ultimately though, the drama was heartbreaking and held me riveted, and the ending was sweet and cute and left me intrigued about the next book.

In Conclusion:

Don’t miss out on this sweet romance that will tug at your heart strings and make you very sentimental. There are times Sweet on You might even have you tearing up. Worth a read.
