Suspiciously Sweet ~ Samantha SoRelle
There is nothing suspicious about how sweet this story is. This story made me want to swoon and bake way too many cakes and patisseries at the same time, which combined for a really lovely experience.
Owen owns a bakery and one time a man, Trevor, who also happens to be a professional restaurant critic, comes in. They start off on the wrong foot and don’t really like each other at first. But they are both really attracted to each other and they end up falling in love.
First, I really enjoyed the pacing of this story. A lot of the story is Owen and Trevor spending time together and getting to know each other and I thought it was really lovely, I liked how there were many pages of them getting to know each other before they got together, it made the relationship progression seem very realistic and it made me see why they work so well as a couple.
Second, it was my first time reading this author and I was pleasantly surprised. I really appreciated the writing style in this book, it was really easy to read and flowed very nicely. And it always kept me engaged in the story and wanting to see what would happen next.
Side note, at one point I was so engaged in the story and the characters that I just cried my eyes out because I felt for them and what they were going through.
Third, I really enjoyed the relationship between the main characters. I liked how they let each other in on secrets that they didn’t like sharing with anyone else, I liked how they both felt like they could be themselves with each other. Owen and Trevor had a really good connection and it showed through every scene of the book. And I just loved how they worshiped each other and loved each other no matter what, it was so sweet and it really worked for me.
“I want you, and that means all of you. I love your scars, not because I have to just because I love you, but because they are part of what makes you the man I love.”
Also, their banter was absolutely lovely, I loved it so much, it worked perfectly for me.
Fourth, if I do have a small thing to say, I really wanted them to communicate more. I’m a really big fan of communication in books, and I didn’t like how they didn’t really talk about their issues when some arose, I just wanted them to talk more.
All in all, I really enjoyed this story and I had such a good time reading the book, even if that time was filled with every emotion from tears to laughter.
