Description

The Sweet Series continues with a new couple. A new story.

Fiona
I had never asked for a break. It had been a small request for space, so I could think. Just some time to reflect and search myself. Loving Marty had never been the problem. It was the word marriage that haunted me. In the end, none of it mattered. Marty proved to be exactly what I feared. Unfaithful. And he’d fooled me, not once, but twice. There sure as hell wouldn’t be a third time.

Marty
Three long years and the sight of her still feels like electricity jolting me awake from a sleep I didn’t realize I was in. Even with plenty of time to mentally prepare for this, being near Fiona reminded me what I’d never managed to find in another woman. Even if she was crazy as hell. A mixture of hot, cold, funny, brutal all wrapped into a f*****g gorgeous package. When I left town, I was getting away from any memories of her. Protecting myself the only way I could. But my twin brother and her half-sister were tying the knot. Unlike us, Shay and Mack could claw each other’s eyes out one minute and be madly in love the next. Making it through this wedding weekend was all Mack asked of me. I could do it. I had to. Even if it took all the whiskey in Savannah, Georgia. Fiona wouldn’t break me. At least not again.

    I have read every book released by this author and have never been disappointed until I finished this story. The spelling/grammatical errors were uncharacteristic and the second half of the book was underdeveloped. As a fan, it mostly left me wondering what happened.

    This is the first time I’ve ever given this author less than 5 stars. Just as these characters and relationships were starting to develop, the book abruptly ends. I was willing to look past the grammatical errors and misspellings for what felt like it was going to be a compelling ride. TBH this would have been much better off as a cliffhanger that left me wanting more as opposed to my initial “that’s it” reaction that followed this rushed ending.
  • Under-developed; Unrealized Potential

    This story had real potential. But there are so many undeveloped storylines and characters, a time-hop to a wedding we never see, grammatical errors... The whole thing reads like the first half was written, and after a long delay, the second half was quickly scribed to make an Editor’s deadline. Also, I found Marty - who initially seemed so chivalrous and careful about his treatment of women - to be pretty rude and almost antagonistic in his treatment of Rowan. A lot of name-calling (“b*tch”), which doesn’t sit well unless it’s used in a moment of anger, or said between women. It seemed like liberties were taken because the character was a lesbian, and seemingly treated like “one of there guys,” which a) is wrong and b) because of lack of character and story development, made me as a reader question if Marty ACTUALLY even cared for this person. I was eager to read Abbi’s next book as I’m a longtime fan, but I was disappointed in the whole novel. There was so just many things that could have been explored: - Fiona finding out about Chantel’s confessions - The goodbye between Marty and Mary Grace - Shay’s dad coming to the wedding and interacting with his family - The actual wedding - How does distance factor into the reconciliation?

    I really wanted to love this book. I liked the first 3 books in the series. Once I started this one I had to stop and re-read 2 & 3 to remember the characters. The story started strong then just changed to fast and ended to abruptly. Is it over? Will there be another book? I’m a little lost. There were grammatical errors which just enhanced the rushed feeling. If this book was edited that too must have been rushed...sad really. I love all of Abbi’s books and always one click and will continue to do so, this just fell flat and was disappointing.
