    A Great Finale- Love the Wilder Family

    A great finale to the series of Sweet, Texas. The perfect read full of emotion, happy tears, sad tears and lots of laughing. Jake, alpha wounded marine and Annabelle, single mom with the cutest toddler reconnect. There is an instant attraction but then Jake gets scared, he has inner demons that he needs to work though on the death of his fellow marine. Annabelle is that perfect person to help move along in life. It was great to catch up with the rest of the Wilder family, love babies and weddings! Candis Terry, I am going to miss the Wilder family, but excited to meet your new friends. Highly recommend for small town romance lovers!

    Truly Sweet

    Who doesn’t love a determined woman, especially when combined with sweetness and sass? Annie Morgan has been in love with Jake Wilder since she was sixteen but unfortunately for her, he’s never noticed her as more than a mouthy, sassy younger friend of the family. Now he’s back home after an injury ended his career with the Marines, he better watch out because she has plans for him. Back home after an injury sidelines his Marine career and feeling guilty over the loss of his men in Afghanistan, all Jake wants is space to figure out the next step so his sudden awareness of Annie as an attractive woman is unexpected. Annie understands loss and its various forms, having been abandoned by the father of her son when she found out she was pregnant, so she empathizes with Jake and is willing to support him while he deals with his feelings. Annie is an amazing character because of her upbeat and optimistic outlook at life. She has taken the bad hand life dealt her and made something good out of it and even though she won’t give up on Jake, she knows what she wants from him and won’t settle for second best. She’s in love with Jake and open about it. She’s fierce, tenacious and definitely someone to have in your corner. “I’m here for you, Jake. I don’t want to be your booty call—the one you think of when the bar closes, and there’s no one else around. But I want to be here for you because your heart and soul need me.” Like his elder brothers, Jake is dedicated to his family and friends which makes the loss of his friend and team mates so hard for him. A chance at happiness with Annie is something he doesn’t want to pass up so he’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep her and I had tears in my eyes seeing such a strong guy finally break down and cry about the loss of his friend. I loved reading TRULY SWEET because it has what I love in my books – characters who know what they want and go for it, without all the angst-filled drama, family, friends, babies and second chances and Annie and Jake had me rooting for them. I have enjoyed reading the Sweet, Texas series because of the interesting and varied characters Ms. Terry created and the small town vibe she captures so well – friendly but nosy townspeople and the requisite gossipy neighbors, but not in an intrusive or annoying way and TRULY SWEET is my favorite.

    As stubborn as the Wilder men are, the women in their lives are even more so. It takes plenty of spunk and attitude to deal with Jake, which Annie has in abundance. I love how they bicker and push each other’s buttons like any old married couple. But even better is the making-up, where it is all fun and fireworks! Lototy Reviewer for Coffee Time Romance & More

    4 1/2 stars for Truly Sweet

    In this final book in the Sweet, Texas series, we see the wonderful dynamic in the relationship between Annie and Jake. They had been buddies growing up, Annie's like the little sister he didn't have. But Annie has been nursing feelings for Jake for years, and the fear over his injuries really solidifies her feelings in her mind - she decides that she's not going to let her fear of rejection keep her from letting Jake know how she feels - she realizes that life is too short for those types of fears. The author does a fantastic job of depicting a soldier suffering from PTSD and survivors guilt. His survivors guilt is so strong that it influences everything he is doing in his life, including his budding feelings for Annie. He feels incredibly unworthy of happiness in his life due to the loss of his best friend and the misguided guilt he feels over living when his friend died. The author's depictions of the emotions experienced by a soldier experiencing these emotions was realistic and emotionally wrenching for the reader. Annie also epitomizes delightful character development, as she is a single-mom who struggles with every day living as a single mom, but eternally grateful for the gift she had been given in her son. She rarely demonstrates the "woe is me" attitude you often see in single moms in stories - she relishes every experience she has with her son and sees being a mother to Max as the most important job she has. The author provides a realistic view of life as a single mom - struggling from time to time with basic necessities but fiercely loyal to her child nonetheless. But let's not forget the love story. the love story develops throughout the story, often derailed by the PTSD feelings Jake is harboring, or Annie's concerns over getting involved as a single mother, or even well meaning family and friends who aren't sure Jake and Annie should end up together. But it seems that Annie is just what Jake needs to help him see what he needs to see about the future, and do what he needs to do to heal and move forward - hopefully with her. Their happily-ever-after has such a feel-good feeling since he is the last one standing. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Truly Sweet describes this story perfectly.

    Truly Sweet describes this story perfectly. The chemistry between these two characters was adorable. I loved how they looked out for each other no matter what. Ms. Terry has created a story that is heartwarming, funny and just plain good. Copyright Night Owl Reviews
