REVIEW: Sweetest Mistake by Candis Terry

When friends become lovers . . .
Firefighter and former Marine Jackson Wilder has tough guy down to an art, but he’s learned the hard way that promises were made to be broken. Abigail Morgan was once his best friend, his first kiss, his first love, his first everything. He’d just forgotten to mention all that to her and she blew out of his life. Five years later, she’s back and he’s battling a load of mistrust for her disappearing act. But for some reason he just can’t keep his lips—or his hands—to himself.

It can lead to disaster or . . .
When her stint as a trophy wife abruptly ends, Abby returns home to Sweet, Texas, and comes face-to-face with Jackson—her biggest and sexiest mistake. Time and distance did nothing to squash her love for the act-first-think-later stubborn hunk of a man, and when he suggests they renew their old just-friends vow, Abby realizes she wants more. She’d cut and run once. Could she do it again? Or could she tempt him enough to break his promise?
The Sweetest Mistake



Award-winning author, Candis Terry, may have taken 22 years to become published, but since 2011 she’s made up for lost time with the release of her new Sweet, Texas series and The Sugar Shack Novels—small town contemporary romances rich with memorable love stories, quirky characters, and tons of fun. Reviewers have called her books delightful, charming, and clever. Her short story in the anthology FOR LOVE AND HONOR was awarded a STARRED REVIEW by Library Journal Reviews and was called “Uniquely satisfying.”
Born and raised near the sunny beaches of Southern California, Candis has made her home on an Idaho farm for almost 20 years. She’s experienced life in such diverse ways as working in a Hollywood recording studio to chasing down wayward steers. Only one thing has remained constant: Candis’ passion for writing stories about relationships, the push and pull in the search for love, and the security one finds in their own happily ever after.

When not writing, Candis can be found camping and ATVing through the beautiful Idaho wilderness with her family.

Sarah's Review
Thanks to my friend Rach for gifting this book to me so that I could review it for the blog!  I appreciate your generosity more than you know.  Your support of this blog is greatly appreciated.  

Jackson Wilder was great in "Anything But Sweet" and I was excited to read this one.  Boy, Jackson did not disappoint!  The alpha male, stubbornness, firefighter and Marine persona that Jack has is just part of who Jack is.  Jack playing with his daughter Izzy is so swoon worthy, especially when he let Izzy play make up with his face.  

Abby, long time friend of the Wilder family and Jack's best friend.  She leave Jack and the rest of the Wilder family to wonder why she left.  Abby has an image as to what will happen since she is back, but she isn't sure how to handle Jack.  

Watching these two friends turned lovers had me laughing at times, crying at times and wanting to smack Jack!  I love these two.
