    A Truly Sweet Texas read!

    Jackson Wilder’s ex, Fiona Wilder is moving to Sweet, Texas to open a cupcake shop and also so her darling little girl, Izzy, can be closer to her father and his soon-to-bride, Abby. On the way, she is the unfortunate victim of two drivers’ road rage. Now she’s trying to get moved in, get the shop set up, and settled into her new life while recovering from her injuries. When her knight in shining armor from the accident shows up to help, she fights the offer. Not because she doesn’t want or need the help but because she is far too attracted to the man who also happens to be a firefighter, a very sexy, very hot firefighter. After her failed marriage to Jackson, she promised herself she’d never get involved with another hot man like that again - it was part of her wild Fiona life she'd left behind. Then again, aren’t promises made to be broken? Mike Halsey hasn’t stopped thinking about the gorgeous Fiona Wilder, off limits ex-wife of his firefighter buddy, Jackson. With a bad marriage as baggage, he has his reasons for keeping his distance from the beautiful single mom. But when the ever matchmaking Jana Wilder collects on her auction purchase, and asks him to work it off by helping the sexy Fiona with her move, and her cupcake shop, he can’t refuse even though he knows he's playing with fire. Sweetness comes in all forms and Fiona is a sweet treat he desperately wants to taste and make his own but there’s a code between men who live on the edge, and since he’s been there with Jackson, he needs to keep his distance even though he doesn’t want to. As usual, Candis Terry creates characters that most certainly make us care. Mike is sexy, caring, and most definitely, a knight in shining armor. Fiona is a good loving mom and has goals to be a successful woman in business. There were times when I felt I’d read this story before because the plot is rather typical. Then Candis does things like throws in a sweet ‘Milo’ moment where Mike gets to show how big his heart is, or like when Fiona gives him the space he needs to get his emotional stuff together. Fiona gets a big star for patience and it pays off big time in the end for her, and for Izzy. Truly Sweet ending to this one. Perhaps SWEET SURPRISE didn’t tug at my heartstrings the way ANYTHING BUT SWEET did, or make me want to smack anyone upside the head the way Jackson did in SWEETEST MISTAKE, but this one was still a good solid Candis Terry read. Although, I did find it a bit of a stretch that the relationship between Fiona and Abby could be quite so intimately friendly. Of course, it lends itself to the fantasy of romance being perfection. I most certainly recommend reading SWEET SURPRISE, book four in the Sweet, Texas series by Candis Terry. If you haven’t tried this series, or if you already love the rest of the series as much as I do, you don’t want to miss yet another of Jana Wilder’s crazy matchmaking meddles. Besides, who can possibly resist such a big-hearted sexy fireman as Mike Halsey. Also, you don’t want to miss the Milo moment or the sweetest of sweet marriage proposals. ***eARC provided by publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

    Loved it

    I loved this book right from the beginning. Fiona needed to have her happily ever in Sweet Texas, too. I fell in love with her from Jackson's story. Fiona, single mom, cupcake extraordinaire, and independent, has made some bad decisions in the past and now has her life going in the right direction when she meets hottie, firefighter Mike. Mike has come from a rough past, not looking for a forever relationship especially with his best friend's ex wife. Mike won me over in many ways, especially when he buys Izzy a puppy. This is must read from Candis Terry. The fourth book in Sweet Texas, a small community, where you will fall in love with everyone. This book can be read as a stand alone. I am still drooling over Mike and the cupcakes.

    Sweet

    Fiona Wilder knows a lot about making bad decisions, she’s made some huge ones in the past and now she is all about living life on the straight and narrow; making the good choices especially now that she has her daughter to take care of and a new business to get off the ground and getting involved with the sexy fireman who causes her to burn so very hot definitely does not fall in the good choice column. Firefighter Mike Halsey has made his own fair share of bad choices, but has decided to live in the moment, enjoying each day with no commitments and no promises. From the first time he saw Fiona, he’s been fascinated with her but kept his distance for several reasons. The first thing that struck me as I was reading this book was the similarities between Fiona and Mike. Both of them have had some major issues in their lives that led to them making some very bad choices in the past and they are still trying to make up for them. Fiona has her naughty side on lock-down and even though she is now at the point where she is open to a new relationship. This time though, she is going to do things in the right order and she is understandably resistant to going there with Mike because it gets harder and harder to keep ‘naughty Fiona’ under control around him. Mike has this huge protective gene (probably part of why he became a firefighter) and feels that since he let his loved ones down, he does not deserve happiness so he indulges in very short-term relationships where both parties know the score – fun and done. However, with Fiona he wants more – to be the man she desire, the one she shares everything with and he is going to earn her. Sweet Surprise is the perfect addition to the Sweet, Texas series. Both Mike and Fiona were very likable characters and made me very eager for them to find their happy ever after. Fiona was levelheaded, mature and very sure of what she wanted. And Mike. What’s not like about a hot and sexy fireman who just wants to protect you? As usual, Ms. Terry set the heat to a low simmer – the sultry glances and stolen kisses all leading to forever with these two. All I want to know is who’s up next? *ARC provider by publisher*
