A New Adult novel from Erin McCarthy, the USA Today bestselling author of True. Jessica Sweet thought going away to college would finally make her free of her parents’ constant judgments and insistence she play chastity club role model for their church events, but if anything, the freedom has made her realize she can’t go home and be a hypocrite anymore. Tired of dodging their questions, she stays at school over the summer and lands in an unexpected crash pad: Riley Mann’s house. Sarcastic, cocky, and full of opinions, Riley is also sexy personified with tattoos and biceps earned from working as a roofer all day. Not the right guy for her even if Jessica was looking for a relationship, which she is definitely not. But Jessica knows that Riley hides the burden of having to raise his younger brothers behind that grin and as she helps him get his house in order for a custody hearing, they begin to fall hard for each other, and she is forced to question what she’s hiding herself. Jessica has never had a problem getting naked with a guy, but when it comes to showing Riley how she truly feels inside, her fear of rejection may just ruin the best thing—the best guy—to ever happen to her…

Jessica was a pretty insufferable character, but there were elements of potential in the story here. Quite...
I received a print copy in exchange for an honest review from Berkley / NAL. Sweet is the second book in the True Believers series. I really wanted to like this book more than I did. I felt the writing was strong, I enjoyed the interaction of the main characters when they were together but for me pe...
This was a romance involving college kids and the heroine sometimes showed rather immature behavior but still I was drawn into the story. I think it was the hero and his realism. Jessica needs a place to stay for the first week of summer vacation and Riley's home is offered up.
I started climbing Riley, trying to get over him to the free side of the bed. We were a tangle of limbs, my balance off as we rocked slightly. "Why are we moving? OMG, is this a waterbed? Who the hell has waterbeds?""People whose mothers were fourteen in the eighties and in love with hair bands." Ye...
I did like this book series. It wasn't my favorite, though. I am not too sure if I'm to get book the next book in the series, just because I'm nit picky about cheating in books... We'll see.
