5* Review: Sweet On You – Marianne Rice- The Wilde Sisters #1



Winter Blurb

An extravagant cake design brings small town baker Trent Kipson to fame…

After gaining social media exposure of his culinary art, Trent’s cake design goes viral. Soon he’s contacted by the Cooking Network to host a new show in California. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for the owner of a modest shop in Portland, Maine, and the financial freedom the network offers could be the answer to all of his monetary problems.

Fitness instructor Rayne Wilde wants the life every small-town girl dreams of…

Rayne wishes for a future full of romance and the pitter-patter of little feet. She wants it all, including a white picket fence and a dog named Spot—which is exactly why she refuses to sleep with Trent, the sexy man who attends her Zumba classes. After a series of dead-end relationships, this time she really is in love. Trent is special, and the fear of letting him slip through her fingers keeps her advances at bay.

Life is waiting—all it takes is a leap of faith…

As their friendship grows and skeletons creep out of their closets, their relationship is put to the test. Stakes get higher, and the spark between them burns hotter than ever before.

Can they handle the heat when life-changing secrets are exposed, or will the fear of being burned send them on two different paths?

Teaser Winter My Review

Sweet on You (Wilde Sisters #1)

This story has all the homely charm of a small town romance with beautifully drawn characters and a picture postcard setting. Add in the glamour of a newly crowned celebrity chef – Trent Kipson, who catches the eye of fitness fanatic and aptly named Rayne Wilde and you have an engaging story you can’t put down.
The plot twists are well timed and there are more than a few surprises for Rayne and Trent.
The chemistry between Rayne and Trent sizzles from their first cute meet and it builds in a realistically satisfying way. The love scenes are hot but not graphic and fit in with the romance and gentle ethos of the story.
The supporting characters give the story its authenticity. I particularly liked Brian. Rayne’s sisterly siblings are recognisable to anyone who has sisters and you find out just enough about them to make you want to discover their stories too.
This is a lovely romantic story with plenty of angst and passion, the perfect ingredients for a cosy winter read.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

Author Bio - FlowerI am an English author, based in the Cheshire countryside. I enjoy going for walks with my two dogs, and I love days out with my children and husband. I love listening to music and you can often find me at a concert or a festival, rock being my favourite genre. Music has a massive influence in my books and I often listen to songs whilst writing.

I have always written, even as a child I would write short stories and make up plays to perform to my parents. I originally wanted to be a journalist, however things happened in my life and my path was changed dramatically.

I am an avid reader and I will try all genres, from romance to autobiographies, although romance is my favourite. I love the feels you get from the storylines, the love and angst, the will they, won’t they, and all the emotions.
