Sweet, Texas #5
By: Candis Terry
Releasing July 28th, 2015
Candis Terry returns to Sweet, Texas for the last time when former Marine Jake Wilder discovers how truly sweet love can be.
When the one you’ve always wanted
At sixteen, Annabelle Morgan hoped her crush on Jake Wilder was just a passing phase. Now she’s twenty-nine and nothing has changed except Jake. The once-carefree marine has come home with a giant chip on his shoulder. He insists a single mom like Annie deserves more than he can offer. Yet no matter how gruff his gorgeous exterior may be, Jake s toe-curling kisses convince her that this attraction is definitely mutual.
Becomes the one who wants you back
Butting heads with feisty Annie was always a thrill. Add other body parts to the mix, and Jake is in serious trouble. He can’t be a forever-and-family guy and Annie s not a friends-with-benefits kind of woman. But love has a way of changing the best-laid plans, and surrender has never been so tempting.
The outcome is truly sweet.
Jake comes home from the war with nightmares, pain, regrets. He lost some of his men, his best friend, got wounded himself, but the survivor's guilt is eating him up, and will not allow himself to be happy again.
Annie has always loved Jake, more than anything or anybody. But Jake has never seen her as a girl, until now. But Annie is not a bootie-call type of a girl, not now, not ever. And that is all Jake has to offer.
Jake and Allie together are so perfect, they are sweet and spice, mixed in a perfect harmony. The author has created so many swoon worthy scenes in the story, written in such a humorous way, that you can't help but smile through the tale.
Until you are in tears... Cause the guilt Jake is carrying with him, he seems to be stuck. With Annie's help and encouragement, he takes on a pilgrimage, and when the moment of healing, and forgiveness comes, it is so powerful, I admit, I was in tears.
Whether there's banter and goodhearted trouble between the brothers, an argument between Jake and Allie, or advice given by mother, the story is filled with warmth, love, and care of a family. The story completely enthralled me, I was wrapped in it like in a big pink cloud. Even when there was trouble and heartache, you knew, that the family was there to support you, protect you, and love you until you are whole again. So many emotions went through me while reading this story, it certainly will not leave you cold.
This might be one of the most warmhearted, romantic stories I have read in a long time, and even though it is the last book in the series, it is easy to be read as a stand-alone novel.
