Summary: via Goodreads

Thank you to @readforeverpub / @grandcentralpub and @netgalley for this advanced copy in exchange for my honest opinion. How Sweet It Is will be published on July 13th.

I loved the concept of this book; it was really sweet but also fell flat for me in the romance department. Ultimately, this book was just “okay” for me but I know a lot of people enjoyed it so definitely read it if the description interests you!

Things I loved: The meet cute was hysterical. Love all the party planning/organization talk. Drake’s brothers and mom were delightful. I loved the VIP date Drake planned. The Harvest festival costumes!

Things I didn’t care for: The romance didn’t feel fully fleshed out…I wasn’t super invested because the slow burn didn’t feel very burn like. The conflict was super fast and I wish we could have dove into it a bit more. I didn’t see the light blub moment of what happened and we need to fix it. I didn’t like the continued dialogue of his “nightmare” writing. There was no resolution with Kate’s parents and the issues there.

How Sweet It Is will be out July 13th, 2021! Pre-order now!
