Heat Level: 🔥🔥🔥
Release Date: February 23, 2021
Lucian Osmond – ex hockey player – is staying with his grandmother Amalie at her private sanctuary Rosemont. Lucian is a recently retired ex-athlete and wants to be near his grandmother while he figures out exactly what it is that he does next.
Emma is an actress on a famous show… but not for long. She finds out at a table read that her character has been killed off. Needing some time and privacy for herself she seeks out Rosemont. What she doesn’t anticipate is the big, burly, snarly man who just happens to be wherever she’s at at the resort. When these two end up spending so much time together – there’s bound to be attraction. But will they act on it – knowing that they’re both in a weird headspace right now?
I truly adored Make it Sweet . I loved the often playful banter between Lucian and Em. Both of them had so many vulnerabilities and yet with one another they truly felt safe letting their guard down. And the fact that Lucian bakes french pastries…sigh 😍. I’ve read a few books that have the cooking or baking aspect in them – but Make it Sweet has got to be one of my favorites! It’s just done so perfectly.
This book had so many things that I love in a romance including:
-only one bed
-the sweetest nicknames for each other
-both characters who are a bit broken and yet believe so strongly in one another.
The audiobook was also fantastic – narrated by Jacob Morgan and Ava Erickson. I switched back and forth between the audio and the e-book! Both of these narrators were such a great duo for portraying Emma and Lucian.
I’m so glad I decided to pick up Make it Sweet.
