2017 - Yep... I still absolutely LOVE this book! These Matafeo men... *dreamy sigh* Where can I find me one of them?! ;)

2016 - I still totally LOVE this book! *dreamy sigh*

Okay... I changed my mind! My Sweetheart is my FAVORITE in the Love and Dessert Trilogy!! I was really sad to see it end and I immediately wanted to start it all over again the second I finished!!

Jane is a hopeless romantic who is hopelessly in love with Tate Matafeo and has been from the moment she met him. The sad thing is,

This is my favorite of the Love and Dessert trilogy. I liked Jane and Tate in all three books and it was fun to finally watch their love story unfold. Jane is just a sweetheart and easy to like. I loved that she is optimistic and kind to everyone. Ive loved Tate in all the books, but especially this one. We really get to know him better and hes just an amazing guy. I found their relationship to be a little more realistic, maybe since their story has really been told over three books and even ...more

Jane is the youngest sister. She's content to do her own thing and is a very sweet, easy-to-please woman and she's very happy and content with her new life as a baker. She is totally in love with local policeman, Tate. She makes every effort to get over him, since he rejected her almost from the start, yet she just can't. Determined to be happy without him, she signs up for a meet and match website so that she can meet new friends and ends up in the same circle of friends as Tate. Meanwhile, ...more

I have really enjoyed this series. This is the third book for the baby sister (three sisters, three books). I've been looking forward to getting this love story since the first book. :) Great, clean romance with the heart and loyalty that I love. :)
Best of the series

I absolutely adored getting to hear Jane and Tate's story. It was completely endearing. This is a beautifully written, clean trilogy!

This book was really fun, but I didn't realize it was a part of a series for some reason (even though it's in the title) and thought I'd missed something while I was reading, but it was actually referring to one of the previous two books. It was still a good book and the story was pretty fun.

My Sweetheart is Jane's story and the one I was most looking forward to reading about.  Jane and Tate's attraction to each other has been evident since they first met and I've been looking forward to finding out what was keeping them apart.  I was happy to see Jane, the hopeless romantic, finally get a happily ever after of  her own.

A couple things in this story seem to work out a little too easily/coincidentally and but I loved it nonetheless.  A great ending to a fun series that I highly

LOVE and DESSERT...can it get any better?

These books are fun and fantastic!
They are also sweet and romantic!
They are just a pure delight to read!

This is Jane's story...
Jane is the youngest sister and she has watched Layla find love, marry and Layla is now expecting.

Jane has also watched Kit choose her true love and Kit is now planning her wedding.

Life at the bakery won't be the same without her sisters living there...Yes they will still work together, but it will be

Such a sweet ending to Ms. Guymons first Fircrest series! It was a little predictable, but the book gave me everything I wanted and more! In many romance books, the author spends the entire book on getting two characters together. In My Sweetheart, half of the book was spend towards the two characters realizing their love for each other while the other half consisted of challenges and life events that they faced together. I loved seeing characters from previous books interacting with new ...more

Who could resist the Kendall sisters with their feisty, yet lovable personalities? The 3 sisters come together to run the bakery they inherited, but it ends up changing their lives - better than they could have ever imagined! Layla and Kit find the love of their lives... and it's about time sweet Jane gets her own "happily ever after!" This is now my favorite series of Shannon Guymon's. Warning: these books and characters suck you right in and you can't put the books down! So find a comfy seat, ...more

What a great series. What a great book. Loved the characters, loved the story. A lot of drama packed into this book though, with (view spoiler)

But it was a happy, sigh romantic book/series. Great job Shannon Guymon!

Moral Note: No language, clean romance, some stalking, talk of rape, mild violence.

BTW - Ms. Guymon has great taste in

This book was one of my best reads ever! This series was so good and it makes me want to read so much more! I loved this book because it had many twists and turns that I didn't expect. I love the love story between Jane and Tate. I also like how Shannon Guymon uses characters from the other books in the series. It helps me connect more with this book. I also like how this is a good clean romance book.

This is one of my favorite of the Fircrest books! I've been rooting for Tate and Jane throughout the first two books and I love seeing how Jane finally gets her happily-ever-after. And I love her Matafeo cupcakes and seeing the updates on how the other sisters are doing. I love a book that I can finish with a smile on my face and a happy sigh! Its super clean and has a really sweet romance! ...more

I downloaded this book as I liked the blurb and it sounded good, but all I can say is...meh. I haven't read the previous two books in the series - I did look at them after spotting this one, but they didn't grab me, so I went ahead with this. It's a little too sweet for me; too many I love you's from absolutely everyone. It's a nice story and I probably would've gotten more out of it by reading the series from the beginning (my bad). I did really like the Samoan side of things though, that's

The last Kendall sister has her own romance. Jane and Tate danced around their attraction in the first two books in the series, but he wont go against his aunt and uncles wishes for him to marry a Samoan woman, so he leaves Jane with a broken heart. She goes through a ten step process to get over him. Along the way she makes several new friends, discovers a love for making creative cupcakes, has a couple scary moments, and discovers that sometimes love is even better if you have to work for it. ...more

The story was cute-- a good way to finish the series. Still a lot of holes and a lot of under-developed plotlines and characters, but it was entertaining.

The editing still left a lot to be desired, although it was significantly better than the last two books. It's a huge pain to read a book and edit every other sentence for grammatical errors and/or content.

Oh, my!!!

Excellent, Wonderful, Marvelous!
I adore everything about this novel and the way that it inspired my faith. I felt the characters struggles and trails as if they were my own. I prayed for them and wept with them. These emotions brought on means that no one will be disappointed if they decide to give this novel a chance! ❤

I was so excited to finally read Jane's story, and it certainly didn't disappoint! I found myself just as wrapped up in this story as the other two before it!! The story is fun, full of laughter, and will pull at your heartstrings! It is a perfect ending to the fun trilogy! The story is well written, and has you laughing, crying, and just falling in love!

Once again I absolutely fall in love with the characters, they are well written and so much fun! Shannon does an amazing job of letting you

3.75 stars. I like Shannon Guymon's books because they're sweet, clean & and we both love a HEA!

What a great series! Reading about 3 sisters and their journey to find peace, love & happiness has been so fun. My Sweetheart was a fantastic conclusion to this series.

Liked: Jane is so sweet & likable. She truly finds the best in others and is so supportive and protective. As a gal who also has 2 sisters, these books are easy for me to relate to. All 3 sisters have different

And the book that ends the Trilogy...with Jane finally finding love! I connect with Jane. She seems more "everyday girl" to me than the other sisters, so I think I connected with her more. Great way to end the Trilogy. I do love Shannon Guymon. She knows how to tell a great story and draw the reader in. I don't know that I ever felt real closure with the Dad, but I guess that's part of the moral of the story is that you can do what you can to help people out, but in the end it's their choices ...more
These books are pretty silly and cute. I would suggest reading the whole series. The couple in the book meet in a previous book. The story line is fun and there is elements of everything, good tension, a bad guy, romance and kissing a marriage. Guymon has a style that stays pretty true throughout her books. I gave it three stars because it's just pretty unreal and a little silly and the way they talk to each other is over the top. These books are a fun escape and they are very clean, even the ...more

Loved it! Strong finish to the trilogy. Loved Jane's story. Great to see all the story lines tied up. Shannon Guymon is a great writer! She has a way of pulling you into her story, into her character's life. There were moments in the story that my eyes got a little misty :) I loved the trilogy. Each book was fabulous! Loved the Kendall sisters and their special bond . I recommend this book -- after you read the first two of course!! And I am already looking forward to whatever Shannon writes ...more

3.5. I LOVED the first half of this book!! Tate was awesome and so mysterious and tall dark and handsome and perfect!! I didn't care for how quick things happened though. Seriously after 2 dates they are madly in love? That's called lust people. Rob did redeem himself but I think it's weird how he was in book 2. The sisters mushiness was way to much for me at times! Maybe I shouldn't have read all 3 books so close together.

This is the final book in the Love and Dessert trilogy. It's not my favorite of the three (I think I like number two (I Belong With You) the best. This is tied with number one (You Belong With Me). Anyway, it's just fun. Romantic, kinda dramatic, and of course, a happy ending. I love Shannon Guymon when I need that type of book, she always delivers.

Jane Kendall has been in love with Tate Matefeo since the first time that she saw him. He kept giving her the cold shoulder. Jane tries to date other men, but keeps being drawn to Tate. He ends up saving her from a bad situation. This is a great book. It is the third book in the series. I really liked this book, as did my daughter.

Book three in the series. In order, I liked #2, #3, and #1. This is the little sister's story, and it was pretty good. All the loose ends are tied up now, and it was a nice little clean romance break.

I love this trilogy. The story of three sisters. There lives are full of challenges. But they have each other. Their bakery is the center of their lives. It gives them their home and work. The author ties up this trilogy. But,I wish there was less feel good conversations and more plot.
