  • Second Chance Romance

    American Sweethearts by Adriana Herrera Dreamers #4 JuanPa and Pris have known and loved one another for years. Their relationship has been plagued with on again off again love-hate periods that have made them both feel it just wasn’t worth it to be together only to be drawn to one another again without seeming to avoid the magnetic pull they feel. I have to say I don’t remember much about the two of them from previous books and didn’t see what the two saw in one another except history and intense chemistry although perhaps there might be more. I also felt that JauanPa had jumped through hoops to be what Pris wanted but didn’t see Pris doing much giving on her side. The book introduces the two and the cast and crew from the previous books on a private jet set to fly to the Dominican Republic for the wedding of their friend Camilo. The whole group and their parents spend time together on island then head home again. There is talk of their jobs and friends and some time spent together and a case that is bothering Pris but in spite of their time together and how hot they are for one another – at least in the bedroom – I don’t get why they are REALLY together and what they have to sustain their relationship. I did enjoy the other books more than this one and think it might be because I could relate to the characters and the relationships they developed with their love interests in a way that I had trouble doing with JuanPa and Pris. I might have liked more about the two as individuals in their respective jobs or more time with them actually talking about their career goals and dreams of the future. I guess I felt I needed more about them and felt I had that with the characters in the previous books. Did I enjoy this story? So-so Would I read more in this series? Perhaps Thank you to NetGalley and Carina Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars

  • Progressive, timely, and downright steamy!

    American Sweethearts is a passionate, second-chance romance between the intelligent, delectable Juan Pablo and the spirited, unfulfilled Priscilla as they discover that even though they’ve been stubborn and let each other go multiple times in the past, the heart wants who the heart wants, and a love like theirs is definitely worth fighting for. The writing is titillating and light. The characters are kind, supportive, genuine, and open-minded. And the plot is a push-pull tale full of miscommunication, introspection, patience, acceptance, encouragement, love, friendship, family, diversity, community, and culture. Overall, American Sweethearts is a sexy, sweet, uplifting tale by Herrera with a whole cast of characters you can’t help but fall in love with, an inclusive, diverse storyline that will keep you engaged, and a happy-ever-after ending that will make you swoon.

  • Realistic struggles resolved honestly

    I can't even tell you the last time I read a M/F romance, but I fell so hard for the characters in this series that I had to read this one, too. It did NOT disappoint! It was so refreshing to see two characters realistically owning the issues/problems they each brought to the relationship without using each others' flaws to tear the other down. Both Priscilla and Juan Pablo were so fully fleshed out as people, I had to keep reminding myself that I don't actually know them! Although we didn't get to see most of Juan Pablo's growth because it occurred before the story started (A+ points for a guy going to therapy), the story realistically captured how he still struggles with some of the things he's been working on, including his need to sweep in and "save" Priscilla. The way her struggles in law enforcement played off her other dreams for her life and were tied up in what she saw as her obligations to her family were incredibly well done. At first I was a little upset that we didn't get to see the outcome of the case she was working, but I realized it was never about the case. I'm sad that the series is over, but I guess that's what re-reads are for!

  • Wonderful Second Chance at Love story

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. American Sweethearts is the fourth book in her LGBTQIA romance Dreamers series. It can be read as a standalone, but I am definitely going to read the rest of the books in the series as I enjoyed this one immensely, and I need to know more about the other romances between the friends who play supporting characters in this book. This is a second chance at love story. Lovers and best friends from the time they were teens, Juan Pablo Campos and Priscilla Gutierrez are reunited when close friends of theirs have a destination wedding. Priscilla knows their physical attraction is off the charts, but she thinks the problems that broke them up make a relationship impossible, but what she doesn’t know is the Juan went and got counselling after their breakup, and he is willing to put the work in to make sure they get their happy ever after. Real, raw and super-steamy, this book was one I hated to put down, and if not for the wonky eye, probably would have devoured it in one sitting.

  • Review: American Sweethearts, by Adriana Herrera

    This is the third Herrera book I’ve read and as I knew from the first I read, American Dreamer, I’ll want to read anything the author puts out. So far I’ve only read that first book in the Dreamers series and this one. This didn’t hurt my enjoyment of American Sweethearts, even though it is the fourth in the series. Though, I do feel recommending reading the series in order or close together wouldn’t hurt. It’s a good series, so why not? American Sweethearts is the story of Priscilla and Juan Pablo, two long time lovers…fighters…and best friends even if they don’t always get along. Part of what made this book enjoyable for me is their history. It’s troubled. It’s long. It needed to be resolved, though it wasn’t clear just how that’d be done. The entire time, though, I knew these two needed to be together. That was the only outcome for the characters or they’d be miserable the rest of their lives. Another thing that keeps me coming back to Herrera’s work is the inclusion of diverse characters, be it their race or sexuality, the inclusion of mental health talk and it’s importance, and also mention of the good and bad of police work. That may seem like a lot to throw all in there and that it’d beat the reader over the head or be preachy, but it’s not. The author includes it in her book(s), but it’s naturally done. It’s all part of life for the characters because they’re accepting human beings from different walks of life. I’ll be diving into both American Fairytale and American Love Story soon so I can finish this series and enjoy more of the character’s I’ve gotten tastes of in the books I’ve read so far.

    Thanks for your feedback!
