Single mom Lizzie Bea Carpenter learned long ago that no white knight was coming to save her. A hardworking waitress at the local diner, she's raising her daughter to be like the independent women in her "Enemy Club"—high school rivals turned best friends, promising to always tell each other the whole truth and nothing but!
Yet part of Lizzie wishes she did have a man's help, just for small stuff, like fixing up the house. Her fairy godmother must have been listening, because Dante "Tay" Giovanni soon appears. He's sexy, kind, and offering assistance—no strings attached.
Slowly, steadily, Lizzie's heart opens. But the grip of the past is fierce, and nothing in life is ever really free. Tay has his own tragedies to overcome, but if he can, he'll fix more than Lizzie's home. He'll show her just how sweet it is to be loved by him.....
How Sweet It Is was a pleasant surprise to read. The characters are likeable (albeit a bit stubborn) and the story and chemistry between the two leads is believable.
Dante Giovanni has had a rough year. He was involved in a accident that took the life of another person. He has given up on life and is trying to “redeem” himself by helping other people. Lizzie Carpenter became pregnant in high school and has been a single mother for the last 14 years. She works in a local diner to support herself and her daughter. Both
How Sweet It Is is a story of believing in second chances, forgiveness and friendship. A wonderful read from a new author for me. At times the characters stubbornness to change annoyed me since the same dialog kept being reiterated, but overall a good solid read. The next in the series, Sweet Kiss of Summer, is due out in August 2011.
