REVIEW: Sweet Caroline by Lissa Matthews


Buck owns a contracting company, but after meeting a woman in a home improvement store, he becomes a simple handyman. Caroline is declaring her independence after a messy divorce, and part of that is fixing up her house to sell it. As Caroline and Buck work closely, they discover they have more in common than they thought and eventually they are helpless against the attraction that rages through them both. They “play” and with many toys, but will their playtime be enough to overcome the past and change their plans for the future?

Title:  Sweet Caroline
Series:  Blue Jeans and Hard Hats
Book #: 1
Author:  Lissa Matthews
Approximate Book Length:  90 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+

This was a really hot book. Hell, it opens up in an adult toy store! There was only one time that I had trouble other than a few editing issues, and that was picturing a particular sex scene. Beyond that, I loved this story, mostly because it felt so authentic and Lissa Matthews paints such a vivid picture that you feel like you could put yourself in the characters’ shoes.

I really enjoyed the playful exploration they endeavor and the way they discover more and more about each other in all aspects of their lives as they push to let the attraction and new respect and just everything blossom. I really felt so much for both characters. I hurt with Caroline, I blushed with, and as for Buck…he’s so caring and compassionate that it’s hard not to fall for him (not that you’d want to fight it anyway).

Another thing I appreciated was the demonstration of the age difference. I’m one of those that doesn’t care about age, and often in stories, even if there is an age difference, it’s not addressed much. Lissa doesn’t shy away from it, but shows you how the characters think of it and why it does or doesn’t matter to them. She also shows that you don’t have to be a perfect size 8 to be sexy, beautiful, and loved. Ultimately, just a really well written and great sexy story!

In Conclusion:

If you’re looking for some kink with your romance, look no further. Sweet Caroline is riveting from beginning to end you will be so engrossed that you won’t be able to put it down! Excellent novella!
