Sweet is an overused word.
Perhaps it’s because I’m the mother of three young and adorable girls that I hear, “Oh, that’s so sweet!” on a fairly regular basis.
Maybe it’s just because I’ve heard it too often in reference to obnoxious behavior my adorable girls are exhibiting that now 97% of the time when I hear someone call something sweet I throw up a bit in my mouth.
Sweet has fallen far down on my list of favorite words in the last decade.
This is a problem because there is nothing that describes 97% of this love story better than sweet. Sometimes poignantly sweet, sometimes bittersweet but always with a constant tug on the heart that leaves you with an aching chest and a small smile.
Would I recommend it? Brace yourself, I’m gonna say it.
“You should read this, it’s just – so sweet!”
And a book that can cause me to say that is definitely worth a read.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I discovered this book because I’m a proud member of Rosie’s Book Review Team!
