RATING: BUY IT
I don’t often re-read books. Based on what I hear from book friends around Facebook, I am in the minority on this. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part, once I read a book, I’m on to the next. It might seem odd that I buy a book after reading it on KU, but I love supporting great authors and I like to have those books as a part of my permanent collection.
I noticed The Sweet Addiction Series Collection by J. Daniels popping up on Amazon since the three-book series collection was released in early March and right off the bat, I knew I wanted to read it. I read Ms. Daniels’ Alabama Summer series last November and loved it. So, last week, I decided to jump into Sweet Addiction.
As I started reading, it all started to sound very familiar. Dylan + Reese. Hot wedding hook up. Her bakery. Her best friends, Joey and Juls ~ and Juls’ sister, Brooke. All of it came flooding back. I went back into my Amazon history and as it turned out, I had already read (and owned) Sweet Addiction (book 1) and Sweet Possession (Book 2). It’s probably obvious at this point in the story, but my memory is crap. The funny thing is, once I made the connection, I remembered SO much about these stories. I mean tons and tons of details. Honestly, I was shocked ~ that almost never happens to me.
After a few chapters of Sweet Addiction, I couldn’t wait and I jumped right into Sweet Obsession (book 3). Once I started reading, all of the reasons why the first two books stuck with me became abundantly clear: J. Daniels is a fabulous writer! Her writing is fun and smart and sexy and engaging. The characters (OMG, Mason!!! I’m not one for staking claims on Book Boyfriends, but I’m declaring here and now that he’s mine!) are so likeable ~ even with their faults (or maybe because of them?). You love getting to know each of them better with each page turned and you can’t wait to see what’s next.
So, why such a long story about my tendency to be a “one and done” book reader? Well, when I finished Sweet Obsession, I wanted, no CRAVED, more time with these amazing characters, that I turned right around and started reading Sweet Addiction over from the beginning. Believe it or not, I liked it even more the second time around.
Please, do yourself a favor and download these books. I promise you will laugh out loud and fall in love with every single book.
As of 4.6.16, The Sweet Addiction Series Collection is available on Kindle Unlimited.
