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.

 My Review

Sweetness was a very sweet story about high school senior Emily, who has gone through multiple traumatic experiences in her life. Her mother practically abandoned her and she moved into her father's house. There at her she meets the hottie of the school Jake who is the star hockey player. Emily was very skeptical of Jake in the beginning. She wondered why he talked to her and asked so many questions. After all, most people think she's a freak. As their relationship develops Jake's seven year old brother Drake is introduced and immediately him and Emily have a connection. Jake is very surprised to see how carefree she is with Drake and wonders why she's quiet and reserved with him. In the end it's one of those classic love stories.

I really liked the characters in this book. Jake and Drake were definitely my favorites. The one thing that I loved about Emily was how she learned to love life again and understand people are going to bring you down. Overall I really enjoyed this book was a really fun and quick read. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars! Thank you Ms.Paige!
