SWEET is a book that I have been looking forward to for a long time. This is mostly because this is Boyce’s book and if you’ve followed Tammara Webber’s Contours of the Heart series then you must already be familiar with Lucas’s enemy turned best friend. There’s this one line in BREAKABLE that I still quote to this day and that’s the “Boyce of reason” one because it makes me laugh a whole lot so when I found out that he was also getting his own book, no one was more stoked than I was.
Webber is a very talented writer. She’s one that pays a great deal of attention to detail, outlining every single thing that could enhance the reading experience for the reader. That being said, this book is a little bit longer and quite wordy, but at the same time I do think it gives a very full vision of what Webber wanted to project to her readers. The book alternates between Boyce and Pearl’s POV starting way back when it all began for them. As teeny tiny innocent children, they get to know each other more when Pearl nearly drowns and Boyce saves her. Though vastly different in personality, this encounter brings them together and while it takes a very long time for them to realize their feelings for one another, their story really begins in an innocent phase and then blossoms from there.
That being said, you may need some patience to get to the good parts because Webber weaves an intricate backstory for Pearl. As she tries to figure out what she wants to do with her life, she has the added stress of her parents expectations as well. Boyce, on the other hand, has his own set of problems that he is dealing with as well.
Because of Boyce’s outgoing and friendly personality in the previous books, I thought this one would be a little bit lighter in tone. However, it stays within the New Adult angsty feel and Webber actually digs deeper, giving these two characters something really special together. I will say that while it was very different from what I expected, it was still fun to read.
SWEET is amply named, merging the tender and heartfelt moments together. I think this is one that can be read well as a standalone.
