Sweetness (Bold As Love #1) by Lindsay Paige

Goodreads Description:

Emily wished she was invisible. But after moving to a new town with her dad, a charming boy makes it impossible for her to disappear. Despite her feelings of unworthiness, Emily soon finds herself drawn to the safety of Jake's world.

Good looking and the star of the hockey team, Jake has a lot going for him. What most people don't see is the difficult life he has at home. When quiet Emily steals his heart, Jake vows to help her discover she is worthy of love. 

Just when the two of them realize the sweetness of their relationship, they are put to the test. Only together can they overcome their haunted pasts to fight for a future together.

Mary's Review:

My twitter friend and amazing blogger @TwiMom101 had read this book a long time ago and gave it great review.  I had it but never got around to it.  I know....I know.....Bad Book Nerd!! So, let us move past the fact that I am a bad Book Nerd and go to the review of this book.

Poor Emily! She is currently living with her father because she was verbally abused by her mother.  Emily's main purpose in life is to stay out of every one's way.  Then one day in class Jake partners up with Emily.  From there they begin to build an relationship.  It is slow to start because Emily just wants to be invisible but Jake wears her down.

Best part of book: Lindsay Paige does not limit the book to just the point of view of Emily.  We are also graced with the point of view of Jake.  I like that because you get the full effect of the story.

Not so great part of the book:  I felt that it was kind of rushed.  I am not sure if that was just me but  as soon as I started the book it was over.  However, that just might be me!

Why read this book?  Lindsay Paige puts a wonderful story together of two people in love.  I love that we can see Jake and his techniques to wear Emily down.

Onto Book 2!
