Cheesy pick up lines. Inappropriate messages. Disaster dates.

I was tired of being “Savannah, profile 8713,” but I made a deal with my best friend to give online dating a chance. What I wasn’t counting on was meeting a guy at the local bar.

Parker Wilde won me over with his two-step and blue eyes. He brought out the best in me and understood the worst, but when an amazing o

I was honored when I received an ARC from Fabiola Francisco for Sweet on Wilde. This book was a true pleasure to read.

I will always be a fan of books that hold the fantasy that love comes to you when you least expect it. The relationship between these two characters, Parker and Savannah, is beautiful. Their story unfolds between the pages in a very real and honest manner.

Francisco's writing continues to thrive with her detailed descriptions of places, spaces and fashion. Another layer to the a

The title is perfect. Both sweet and wild....this book takes the reader on an emotional journey that is equal parts funny, emotional and tender.

As a self professed urban-girl, I don't always get the country guy allure thing unless Fabiola is writing it. Francisco has a way with Southern guys that makes me want to ditch a life of taxicabs for cowboy boots.

In Sweet on Wilde, we meet Savannah, delectable bake shop owner, who is delving into the world of online dating. After a series of crude intera

This book starts out with Savannah and how she made a deal with her best friend, Emily, that if they were still single after eight months, they would try online dating. Unfortunately for Savannah, Emily found someone after she moved to Atlanta but Savannah didn’t. Savanna doesn’t back down on a deal so she kept her end of the bargain, so she signed up with online dating website, Perfect Match.

Savannah goes out on some silly dates with guys from Perfect Match at

From the moment we were introduced to Parker (a southern gentleman) and Savannah it was kindergarten all over again. That time when the boy pinches you, pulls your hair, calls you names all because he likes you. The banter between the two is sweet and cute and had my heartstrings singing a happy tune.

I was super excited to read this book, simply because already the blurb really drew me in . And the book didn't disappoint.

The story between Savannah and Parker is sweet, heart-warming and feel-good. Yes, there are some itty bitty parts as well that will break your heart, but overall this is a story about finding love in unexpected places and when you least expect it.

I am never a fan of giving too much info of a book away, s

Isn't strange when we now read a book, we wait for something bad to happen, believing that every story has to have some major drama, then we pray for a happy ending.
This book was definitely sweet and wild. I am more than Sweet on Wilde. Parker Wilde is a great character, full of charm and such a romantic. He's very good looking, the kind that makes your stomach have butterflies just by looking at him. Life has not be so kind to Parker. He suffered an injury while playing in the minors,

Author Fabiola Francisco has perfected the art of writing characters to fall in love with.
She has a smooth writing style that allows you to fall into the story without interruption, while using strong character development and humor to hook you. Before long, you've been reading for hours, ignoring the life happening around you.
The author did amazing job of getting across the complicated feelings of the dating scene. Taking us on the roller coaster of emotions that each of us have gone through wo

I was offered a chance to read an ARC of this new novel by Fabiola Francisco and I am honoured that I did.

This is a story which …like the title says…is sweet. BUT don’t let that sweetness fool you. There is enough passion and heat to melt your Kindle. But the author has found the perfect balance between the two.

Savannah is a great character. She is strong and sassy and is not afraid to face her fears. She takes a chance in this novel and it brings her the greatest reward…love. I heart her!

I absolutely loved this book. I thought it was a beautiful and sweet story about love sneaking up on you when you’re looking in the wrong places.
I felt that the love scenes between Parker and Savannah were hot. But I loved that Savannah needed to have a connection with Parker before she jumped into bed with him. Such a refreshing change from other books I’ve read.
And speaking of connections, I really felt a strong connection to both characters. I could see a bit of myself in each of them and i

**Received an ARC from author for an honest review.**

Sweet on Wilde is a stand-alone with no cheating.

I felt it was a slow start. She's a 28 year-old successful bakery owner and Savannah made a pact with her BFF. If she was still single by a certain date, she would sign up for on-line dating. But love often find us when we are least expectant and/or where we least expect it! This was true with Savannah. When she meets Parker I instantly knew this was the guy I'd be reading about a

Fabiola did a really great job of writing a heartwarming and fun story. I adored the two main characters, Savannah and Parker, in the book and they were both really good people. Although this book isn’t full of crazy it was a very good read, very real and definitely a feel good book. There are plenty of laughs to make this book fun too!

We start out with Savannah making good on a deal with her best friend, Emma. They had both agreed to sign up on an online dating site if at the end of eight month

Full review now up on my blog:

I wish I could say that I liked Sweet on Wilde more than I did. I didn’t dislike it, but similarly it’s far from joining my ‘favourites’ shelf.

My main problem concerned the plot, or rather the lack of it.

Nothing much happened till way past the middle of the book (and at 283 pages, it was no short story or novella either). It wasn’t even particularly character-led. Basically, the whole plot consisted of just ‘this happens, t

Do you ever just start reading a book and the world literally dissolves and the only thing you see, breathe and on your mind is everything in the book?


I would really love to be able to explore this author’s mind. This is the third novel I’ve read that is written by her and each time, she surpass my expectations and gets even better!

Savannah, I need to have some of those yummy treats you create STAT!

Unlucky in love had its benefits. Savannah, didn't know it but the pinky promise she made set her on the journey of her soulmate!! All of those bad dates eventually paid off. But, our girl didn't see it coming, absolutely love how Parker and Savannah met!!!! You will too.

Here I was drooling over Parker and his hot athletic build and boom, he's such a sweet Southern Gentleman

Fabiola's book for me are true romance. She brings every feeling out when it comes to her stories. I cried, laughed and got mad.

Savannah is your typical southern girl that just wants to find love. Since love hasn't come her way she heads to a dating site after deal she made with her best friend. Not finding anything but internet crazies. She finds herself in comfort of her friends bar and Parker to make fun of her dates. Will she ever find that true love? How does her life change?

After Savannah makes a deal with her friend she starts to regret it when time is up.

Deal... be in a relationship within 8 months, or go on a dating site and find someone.

Savannah feels like this is a waste of her time. That is until Parker Wilde shows up in the same bar as her, listening to her vent about her terrible date. Parker takes Savannah for a wild ride, but could this ride be over before too soon. When life throws Parker a deal he can't refuse where will that leave them... and is the l

This is a great summer read. It's a very realistic love story with down-to-Earth, believable characters. It's a story that warms the heart and took me back to the beginnings of my own love story with my husband which is currently on it's 19th year. Those first few dates, those butterflies in your stomach, such nice memories. Isn't that the mark of a good book, that readers can relate to it? I think this may be Fabiola's best book to date. Well, Resisting You is also damn good!

Love of the game....

Amazing story with the most amusingly written tale of new age dating vs old school country boy charm. The true to life issues and trials and tribulation make the characters so real you can't put it down. You laugh and almost cry but more than anything you cheer for true love!!! Can't wait to read more by such a gifted and talented writer. I have found a new favorite author in Fabiola Francisco.

Sweets and baseball

Great story between a former baseball player and a bakery owner. Loved the interaction between Parker and Savannah but also how important friends and family were to them both. If you are looking for a sweet read with a little baking, a little baseball and heat, definitely the book for you!

Amazing story

Savannah and Parker have a story that is almost fairy tale perfect. The story is deep and character development makes you want to keep reading this story. Parker and Savannah do have struggles like every couple but overcoming it and allowing their love to grow is what is the most important. Amazing story.
