Book Review: How Sweet It Is by Dylan Newton

How Sweet It Is

Author: Dylan Newton
Publisher: Forever (July 13, 2021)
Paperback, 352 pages
Romance, Contemporary Romance, Rom-Com


Event planner Kate Sweet is famous for creating the perfect happily-ever-after moment for her clients’ dream weddings. So how is it that her best friend has roped her into planning a bestselling horror writer’s book launch extravaganza? But the second Kate meets—or rather, accidentally maims—the drop-dead-hot Drake Matthews, her well-ordered life quickly transforms into an absolute nightmare.

Drake Matthews is tired of the spotlight and tired of his reputation as the Knight of Nightmares. He’s really a nice guy! But he’s not prepared for Kate, a fearless agent of chaos in steel-tipped stilettos, or for that sweet sting of attraction he feels for her. She’s inspiring him to take his writing in a whole new direction—one that no one expects. Because now Kate and Drake are changing up the rules, and this plot twist might just surprise everyone . . . including themselves. 


Rating: 5 out of 5.

I can’t even put into words how much I adore How Sweet It Is. I was rooting so hard for both Kate and Drake through this entire book, even when (especially when?) Kate manages to flub up over and over again. For someone who lives life by a series of spreadsheets and checklists, Kate sure gets herself into a lot of scrapes once Drake enters the picture!

There are so many things I want to gush about in this book (the vicious attack dog! the costume! the heels! the aww (or ahh!) moments!) but I don’t want to take a single moment of the magic away. So just trust me – this book is great, go read it right now.

A digital ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for review. All opinions are unbiased and my own.
