Sweet on You is the perfect read for slow, rainy weekends when you just want to have a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy a relaxing story. It’s the sixth book in Kate Perry’s Laurel Heights series, but it can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read any of the previous books, and while I didn’t know the back story of some secondary characters, it didn’t bother me in the least.

This very short book contains not one, but two love stories, each of them adorable in its own way. On the one side,

This book was so pleasantly sweet – not saccharine sweet but just enough to induce a goofy smile on my face for pretty much the entire time I spent reading it. It was just the kind of book that distracted me from some of the stuff that’s going on in my life right now. God's honest truth? It probably saved me from committing a felony - no word of a lie. Life doesn't really suck right now per se, but I've always hated changes and we're about to go through one. Anyway, enough about me. I love it wh ...more

Sweet On You is a cute story that had me laughing and crying. I loved how Kate put this story together. Two people put together in a situation where they are willing to fight to the end to get what they want. Both people have legitimate reasons for wanting what they want and neither one backing down. What a show down and funny till the end.

Daniella Rossi's life is going great. She loves cooking pastries for the stars. That is until one day she hits a slump and sees a homeless girl hungry. She de
It's been a long time since I last picked up an adult contemporary romance so when I came across Sweet On You, it sounded just what I needed to get back into the genre. And it was. Sweet On You begins with Danielle who is all but had it with her choice of career. She might have been the best at being a pastry chef but lately, it's been all work. She's had enough of people treating her more like a pastry chef and less like a person.

Pastry Chef Daniela Rossi is feeling empty inside. After her last birthday her passion for baking has fizzled until she happens upon a homeless child and is inspired to try and pay it forward. Wanting to buy a building she feels would be perfect renovated into a soup kitchen. Everything seems to be going as planned, until the building she wants has another offer.

Nico Cruz has his own personal reasons he wants the building. He knows Daniela Rossi's reputation for being a live wire, but nothing is

Sweet On You is everything and more than what I expected. It was romantic, sweet, heartbreaking, and completely hooked me from page one ! I devoured this book in one sitting and could not stop reading, i don't even think I ate, I was that engrossed in it! It had the perfect ingredients for a PERFECT contemporary adult romance! :D

This was the first book I've read by Kate Perry and honestly it didn't matter that it was #6 in the series because you can read it
I received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. You can see my reviews at

What an adorable story! It's perfect for curling up under a blanket on a snowy day with some hot chocolate, which is exactly what I did when I started reading this book! And it was so good that I was sucked in immediately and unable to put it down.

I don't know how she is doing it, but in every next book she is better than before.
Sweet On you is Daniella and Nico's love story. Their chemistry was electrifying and interactions were cute. The author's plot line was interesting, both Daniella and Nico challenging and fighting each other for an old, dilapidated building. I loved Daniella. She is really a very sweet girl, so caring but equally feisty! A perfect match for dangerous (in a very good way, wink!) Nico. What to say about Nico, i felt for him, for his brother and why he wanted to destroy the old building! I could un ...more
This was the best developed of the series so far.

She stumbles upon an abandoned bldg/motel for sale and has an idea to turn it into a soup kitchen and workforce training center. Nico Cruz is a real estate mogul who also wants the bldg but he also wants her. Essentially th

"Sweet on You" was just that, sweet. As always -- left me oohing, sighing and smiling and happy. That is why I read these books.

This installment of the "Laurel Heights" series centers on the romances of famous pastry chef, Daniella, and her assistant, Marley. Both stories are interesting and inviting and help us learn more about the Laurel Height denizens.

One of the things I enjoy about this series, is that I get to find out what happened after to the characters, as well as, playing the game o
This is my favorite book out of the series so far! Simply put, I just loved everything that was going on... :)
Celebrity chef Daniella Rossi is depressed. Ever since her beloved grandmother passed away her love and desire to bake (skills taught to her by her grandmother) is at a stand still. To make matters worse, her best friend, her brother Tony, is treating her like a business instead of his sister. One day as Daniella is wandering the streets, trying to clear her head she encounters an old abandoned building with a family squatting in it. She gets an idea to make the building into a soup kitchen and ...more

Sweet On You was exactly as the title implies. It was a really sweet story with a little bit of spice thrown in. I have a few of the books from this series that I snagged on Amazon for free, but hadn't had a chance to read them yet. So, I was excited when the tour came up for this one. Now, you don't need to read the other books in the series in order to read this one. Sweet On You is the sixth book and I had no trouble at all. In fact, it read like a stand alone. However, I am even more excited ...more
I received a review copy in exchange for my participation in the book tour. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have really got to do better research when I choose books to read and review for book tours. Sweet on You is the sixth book in the Laurel Heights series and I really want to read the rest of them now!

One of my favorite things about this book is how Nico and Daniela didn't beat around the bush. Marley and Brian did, but their story is so very different from Daniela and Nico.

This was a sweet and romantic story that was more than just romance. The family dynamics were every bit as compelling as the romance, if not more so. I like that the community is so supportive and friendly and makes me want to read more from this series. You could tell from certain characters that there’ve been previous stories, but they don’t tie together in such a way as to make you feel like you’ve missed something important. It’s more like a tease to make you want to check out the previous b ...more

3.5 stars!

I've never read any books by Kate Perry and especially haven't read the previous five books to this book but after reading Sweet on You, I'll have to get them asap!

I wasn't really sold on Danielle at first. Honestly, I found myself rolling my eyes at some of the things she said. She just came off as this whiny, rich girl who has everything and yet she's still unhappy and bitchy. I know she's written off as being feisty which she is, but I just had a hard time connecting with her. But a

I adore the Laurel Heights novels :) This one was no different. While this one wasn’t my favorite of the novels – it still came through for me :) This one felt more like it was out on it’s own, rather than part of the series – but it didn’t takeaway from the overall story.

I love me some Daniela. She is a very kindhearted person. I love that she wants to turn this old abandoned building into something beneficial for the less fortunate. Her plan,

I have this nasty habit of starting all series books in their exact order. Most of the times the first book gives me an idea of the rest of the series and then I decide whether or not to complete the rest. Usually I don't read another book in the series if I hate the first one. This book? Well for probably the first time I'm wrong. I picked on the book as a take - a - break book between reading a very hard core history book. Amidst the gunshots I decided I deserved a break and what a surprise th ...more

I adored this book. I would never leave it at that though...
First of all, I love to bake and I love the Food Network, so I found a natural connection to pastry chef Daniela Rossi. Well, I felt a connection until she randomly kisses a stranger in front of an old scary building. Who does that? Well, I might, if the guy was as hot as Nico Cruz appeared to be.

I won Sweet On You through Goodreads and was a little wary of starting this book, the sixth in a series, without having read the previous novels. But aside from secondary characters with interesting back stories, you wouldn't know you were missing any pieces. This did well as a standalone, so I was very happy.

The primary story in this is of Nico Cruz a very wealthy man who has a background of poverty and tragedy. He has a personal interest in acquiring a building that is up for sale for the purp
Daniella & Nico really sizzles. Their chemistry is awesome. Both struggled in their life on different things but they seem to be two different puzzles that fit perfectly.

Daniella is another wonderfully different character. In fact she has CHARACTER. She knows what she wants, she speaks her mine, she can be forward, uninhibited with Nico, and even brazen. Did i mention Nico's name is cute. I love her soup kitchen idea and to do baking for a good cause, not just money and fame.

Sweet is exactly how you’ll feel after reading this duel romance, Sweet on You. It is essentially two love stories in one that keeps your toes curling page after page. The pace is also very quick, so it’s a great weekend read.

Because it is shorter than usual, I’ll allow the synopsis to do most of the talking. I’ll jump right into my likes/dislikes of the story as a whole, but in
I've been seeing the Laurel Heights Series around for a while now, thought they looked good, and even have book three. So I was really excited to be able to join the blog tour. It's great that each book is a companion, and do not need to be read in order. Those types of series are a favorite of mine.

Sweet on You was, to be terribly cliche', sweet. I really like stories in which the leading characters are business rivals in some manner, and end up falling in love. I'm a firm believer that anger
Josephine Barly
Not my particular favorite entry, maybe because I couldn't relate to the characters a lot, but I still enjoyed the read and it was worth the money.
Kate Perry is a good writer, and this novel has realistic dialogues, developed characters and a nice, if predictable, plot.
But I'm reading her for that: I know that I'll have a happily-ever-after, so that's alright.
Emily Higgins
Pastry chef Daniela Rossi is determined to turn a derelict motel into a soup kitchen and homeless shelter. Developer Nico Cruz is even more determined to buy the property and tear it down. Meanwhile, Daniela's assistant Marley falls in love with Brian. The characters are mostly ditzy. Not much substance to the tale.

Sweet on you

This was exciting because of Nick & Daniella who are both rich and powerful. Interesting that these characters would fall in love. Too bad her brother Tony was such a bull head because I thought he would come around for Marley. Lo and behold she hooks up with Brian!
Mary Thompson
I totally fell in love with this book. While I don't like secrets in a relationship, I know it was needed to make this book as good as it was. I'll read every Kate Perry book because she has such an incredible ability to tell stories.
Fun book. I loved the stubbornness of both Daniela and Nico. It is a short reading and quite enjoyable, yet forgettable. If you are in for a romantic light reading, this is a great book for you.
I think as the series goes there is more character development. I like these types of series. Unfortunately I've read the odd numbered ones first awhile ago so I had to try to remember some things.
