Things get even more complicated for Paige when the rumored bad boy of Hollywood, Jordan Wilder, joins the cast as the other love interest. Paige finds herself drawn to the handsome, brooding newcomer. In the end, Paige's heart can only belong to one guy, but who will she choose?
Double Review: Famous in Love + Truly, Madly, Famously by Rebecca Serle
I found myself torn between the two love interests - unsure of which one was best for Paige. I lean a little more towards Team Jordan. Paige captures my thoughts on the subject when she states, "But now it's like Jordan and Rainer are fighting it out inside my heart. And I don't know who to root for because just thinking about one makes me feel like a traitor to the other" Kindle Location - ARC Edition.
I thought the love triangle aspect would bother me, but I found it wasn't as annoying as it could have been since I was expecting it. The book's blurb makes it clear that Paige's heart will be torn in two different directions. I preferred knowing ahead of time than having to discover it half way into the story.
In addition, I also loved the Hawaii setting. It was a nice mental vacation. Rebecca Serle does a beautiful job of capturing the essence of Hawaii.

Readers of This Book Also Read. Josheka Chauhan reviewed on on Aug. Sweetness was full of small bits and sometimes big ones of sweetness throughout the story. There were so many "awwwwww" moments and wonderfully executed scenes.
Dangerous Encounters: Twelve Book Boxed Set by Laurelin Paige
I loved Lindsay Paige's writing style. It was simple and yet quite efficiently got the message through. Character-wise Emily was okay. She was too.. Sometimes, her childish nature became really irritating but overall, she was just fine I guess. Jake was Guys like him are not real. While reading the story, I couldn't believe that a guy can do so much for a girl he likes. It was adorable. I think Jake sort of tops my list of sweetest guys in books. His character was fantabulous and his POV in the story was truly well-written by Ms. The other characters were pretty cool too but I can't say much about them since the whole story basically revolved around Emily and Jake.
I really liked Emily's dad and also little Drake. His upbeat and enthusiastic nature was cute and interesting. All in all, Sweetness was really, really good and if you're a YA romance lover then you're absolutely gonna love it! With it's swoon-worthy and still in limits romantic scenes, enjoyable characters and an AWESOME story, it'll surely make your heart go pitter-pat!
Carole Rae reviewed on on June 23, This is the first book I've read by Lindsay Paige and it is also the first book of the series. At first I was little unsure how I would take to this book. Usually I don't read YA novels, but I took a chance with this one and the second one which I'll be reading soon. Well, I'm a sucker for guys who play hockey or baseball. How many books have you read that the hero is a hockey or baseball player? Not many! When I read that Jake the hero was a hockey player I was giggled like a pre-teen and put my name into read this.
I also really wanted to see if Lindsay Paige could make this very unlikely romance seem legit or if it would be cheesy like many YA romances are.
To put it simple: I was not let down. I was drawn to Emily's and Jake's story. I can't say that I can connect with these characters on the same level as these two, but I understand. It's hard to explain, but I really was intrigued. They both had pretty bad experiences in their past and they suffer in silence until they find one another. I found it very sweet and I was highly jealous of Emily. Jake, even though classified as a popular guy, was a wonderful person.
I love how he was so dedicated to help Emily and bring her back to life after such horrid experiences with her mother being a sorry for the French bitch and the guys her mom hired to pretty much rape her. Poor girl. However, I love how Emily stood by her man even though he blamed himself for his mother's death.
Perhaps the reason why Jake was drawn to Emily was the fact that she was his redemption. He would save her, because he wasn't there to save his mom. It's just so I loved it. Perhaps that is why Lindsay Paige named the book Sweetness. The only thing that realllllllllly bugged me was how the book was written. It was written in present tense and at times I felt like I was reading diary entries.
I don't mind it, but it was slightly irritating at times. Am I being too picky or have I become highly use to past tense novels? I don't know, but that was the only thing that irked me. Other than that, I adored this book. Sweetness was a sweet book and its a good book to read while your laying by the pool or chilling on the beach.
I know I am totally biaised for that question, but Kat is the best and someone you can just so easily chat with, about, everything. It does sound like a fun guilty pleasure type show! Great review! They just appear and disappear randomly sometimes. I think the worst part about the love triangle in the book was the fact that it was the main storyline. If the focus had been less on it, that would have already helped, but it was still a very poor love triangle.
