How does Susan Mallery do it? Her stories interest me, suck me in, make me think, spit me out smiling, and then leave me hungry for the next! The heroine of “Sweet Spot”, Nicole, was introduced in the first book of this series, “Sweet Talk”. I really didn’t like Nicole! She was snarky, bad-tempered, and whiny. I just couldn’t see how even Susan Mallery could make her likable. Well, darn it, she did it. As I read Nicole’s story, I began to

Gerçekten güzel bir kitaptı. Severek çevirdim, sonraki sayfayı merak ederek ilerledim, bazen önden gidip okudum.

Kadın karakter: Güçlü, bağımsız, sert gibi görünen ama yumuşacık kalbi var, azıcık da çenesini tutamıyor.

Erkek karakter: İstediğinin peşinden giden, güçlü, arada sırada lafı tersten anlayan, biraz geçmişte kalmış, tatlı bir herif!

Yan karakterler de güçlü ve sevilesiydi.
This is the second book in the "Bakery Sisters" series. The first book is about the twin who left home to be a piano prodigy. This is about the twin who stayed behind. It begins after the close of the first book.

The heroine has always been the responsible one. She's been running the family bakery, she helped raise her younger sister, and even though she's finally reconciling with her long-absent twin, her life is falling apart around her. Her marriage is over. Her younger sister has gone so far

3.5 Stars

I really liked this book, I already liked Nicole from the previous book and I love her sarcastic sense of humour, the guy, Hawk, in this book was also a lot better, he seemed to have more character and I could feel the relationship between them more.

The only character that annoyed me was Brittany, Hawks's daughter, she was selfish spoiled and really got on my nerves! How did she ever get a boyfriend as good as Raoul?!

Also is it a theme in Susan Mallery books that everyone gets pregnant
I should probably start off this review by stating that I am not usually drawn to contemporary romances that don't contain any suspense elements, so I am not really the intended audience for this sort of novel. That said, Sweet Spot failed miserably to meet even my lowered expectations. I had major problems with the writing, the plot, and especially the characters.

Susan Mallery's writing left a lot to be desired, at least in this book. While I didn't notice many grammatical or typographical err

The story of Nicole, a woman used to responsibilities, who is still recovering from a recent divorce, and Hawk, a former pro football player who now coaches the high school team.

Tired of the concern of her friends and family, Nicole decides to make a proposition to Hawk to agree to the fling he seems to want in exchange for pretending to be her boyfriend, no strings attached.

As expected, feelings become involved, and problems must be solved involving teenagers, pregnancies and (view spoiler)

Ilk kitaptan daha cok sevdim sanırım. Nicole ilkinde soguk gibi gelmisti ama burada ayaklari yere basan ve kendinden ödün vermeyen bir karakterdi. Okuması keyifliydi. Hala o pisss kız kardeşinden nefret ediyorum ama sanırım 3.kitabi da alıp okuyacağım çıktığında.
Hawk güçlü, karizmatik, havalı eski bir NFL oyuncusu şimdilerin genç babası ve koçu adam baştan aşağı karizmaayımm diyor :D ama kızı ve rahmetli karısı konusunda az biraz dik kafalı ve ben en iyisiyim düşüncesinde. Zaten sonunda da görüy

If I liked Claire's story, I absolutely loved Nicole's. She is my favourite sister and I have a feeling that this has to do with the fact that I feel like my personality is a bit like hers. She tries to look and sound cold but deep down inside she is an absolute sweetheart. Stubborn, she tries to fight her own feelings, trying to keep her heart from commanding her brain. But soon it all becomes too much and she ends up giving up and going with the flow. But like every flow, there are times when ...more

Muito, muito, muito bom... Admito que quando conheci esta irmã no primeiro livro me irritou mas adorei-a aqui... Adorei uma durona com coração de manteiga...
Agora é esperar pelo 3º livro e esperar que não demore um ano! :(
Two-haiku review:

She runs bakery
He's football coach with spoiled teen
He wants sex, not love

Very strong woman
He's a bit of an a-hole
But realistic

This story was really really good! This first sister was a little too Scrooge for me in the first book but she gained points towards the end... this second books was about her and I loved it so much!

There was one of the most wonderful teenager boy I ever met! Amazing!

Like the story. Like the interactions. But I don't think anyone can sneeze without ending up pregnant.

Where did nasty snakey bitchy Nicole go!!? I really didn't like her in the first book, but man, has she had a major makeover! I felt so sorry for her in the start of this book, everyone was happy around her and getting on with their lives and she wasn't. Then Hawk arrives. I had laugh out loud moments....She wanted to pull her hand free and demand that he stop touching her. She wanted to tell him that they weren‟t together, they would never be together, and ask him what the hell was he thinking. ...more
This book made me like Nicole better, made me understand why she is the way she is. There was still drama with Jessie, who still irritated me because she won't accept any responsibility for her part in everything. We do find out that things weren't as they seemed with the ex, but it doesn't absolve her of her actions.

I think it is funny how Nicole thinks she is so tough, but she is really a marshmallow. I knew she would cave in and let Raoul go. I just didn't expect things to go the way they did

This is the second book in the Bakery sisters. I have the bundle which gives all three books for $10. It's a great deal. But I like leaving reviews on individual books. I am giving this three stars because Nicole was kind of hard to like in the first book and the first part if this one. She played the woo is me role a little to much. I can't really like her all to much. She was at times just plain mean. I understand that she was hurt I just think it was played up to much by the author. But I wil ...more

"Responsibility" should be Nicole Keyes's middle name. After all, not many people would sacrifice their lives to run the family bakery and raise a younger sibling. But with Nicole's twin sister now blissfully married and her younger sis turning out more femme fatale than girl-next-door, super reliable Nicole is getting sick of putting everyone else's needs first Enter Hawk. The deliciously sexy former NFL player offers Nicole a taste of the freedom she craves. Hawk may know the way, blindfolded, ...more

This was book 2 in the Bakery series.

I actually felt more like giving that book 3,5 stars because as awesome and hilarious/funny the beginning was, the whole middle part was just way beyond stupid and boring. I felt like Susan Mallery ran out of ideas how to keep the 2 lovebirds apart a bit longer so she suddenly turned Brittany into a whole bitch and made this weird wife/not letting go of her story. *rolleyes* And don't let me start on this whole pregnant thing. I don't think it was funny AT AL

I could not get past Hawk. He saunters around the story like he owns it, and like Nicole should be pleased he's there. That wasn't sexy to me. He intrudes on her life to prove he knows her (actions speak louder than words and his actions say he will try to control her). I also found the dialogue very flat, and really only a back-and-forth about them having sex or not. No depth.

This makes me sad because I'd really enjoyed Irresistible.

I think if the last 20 pages of Hawk developing as a father (a

This book was well-written and fun, but I had a hard time with the romance stereotypes - that the heroine is so instantly put-off by the beautiful hero when he first appears in her bakery and the inexplicable way her obvious dislike of him makes him decide to pursue her. I dunno, in my mind, if a woman acts like a bitch, the average man is going to bolt as fast as he can in the opposite direction. Once I got over that aspect, though, I couldn't put it down.

Nicole Keyes is feeling a bit sorry for herself, both her sisters are pregnant, and all she has ever wanted was a family of her own. Of course she has been raising her younger sister since she was 12 and Jesse 6, but that did not work out so well, as she found Jesse in bed with her husband Drew a few months ago. But she is sick of the worrying and pitying looks everyone give her.
And so when a handsome football coach comes on to her, she makes him an offer:

Nachdem ich den ersten Band "Frisch verliebt" binnen kurzer Zeit verschlungen habe, stand schnell fest, dass ich auch den zweiten Band "Frisch verlobt" lesen muss. Gelohnt hat es sich allemal, denn der zweite Band gefällt mir noch besser als der erste Band, sodass sich Susan Mallery wieder einmal ganz klar steigern konnte.

Obwohl mir der erste Band bereits sehr gut gefallen hat, muss ich zugeben, dass der zweite Band deutlich frischer und spritziger wirkt. Man kennt die Protagonisten zum größten

Hai, aq baru saja membaca buku ini. Dan kalo Claire membuatku terpesona dengan ketabahannya, tapi Nicole berbeda. Aku suka dengan kepribadiannya yang sinis dan celetukannya yang pedas. Berikut reviewku...tapi aku menggunakan kata ganti orang pertama ya,,,
