REVIEW: Sweet by Erin McCarthy


Jessica Sweet thought going away to college would finally make her free of her parents’ constant judgments and insistence she play chastity club role model for their church events, but if anything, the freedom has made her realize she can’t go home and be a hypocrite anymore. Tired of dodging their questions, she stays at school over the summer and lands in an unexpected crash pad: Riley Mann’s house.

Sarcastic, cocky, and full of opinions, Riley is also sexy personified with tattoos and biceps earned from working as a roofer all day. Not the right guy for her even if Jessica was looking for a relationship, which she is definitely not. But Jessica knows that Riley hides the burden of having to raise his younger brothers behind that grin and as she helps him get his house in order for a custody hearing, they begin to fall hard for each other, and she is forced to question what she’s hiding herself.

Jessica has never had a problem getting naked with a guy, but when it comes to showing Riley how she truly feels inside, her fear of rejection may just ruin the best thing—the best guy—to ever happen to her…


Sweet is the story of Jessica and Riley. It was hot, sexy, funny, and had me hooked from start to finish! Jessica moves in with Riley when the semester ends and before she can move into her sublet…oh boy do things heat up fast. Jessica has never been the type of girl to have real relationships with guys…she’s more into hook-ups but that’s all about to change. Riley only does relationships…and that’s exactly what he wants with Jessica. He gets jealous when she’s with other guys and over-protective when someone insults at a party. But can Jess and Riley work it out the difference the two of them have personality wise to make their relationship work or will their age difference and past relationships doom them from making their own relationship work.

I loved Sweet! It was amazing. The chemistry between Riley and Jess was hot and amazing! I couldn’t put this book down!
