ARC REVIEW : Sweet Nothings (Amuse Bouche #1) by T. Neilson
Will a bitter bite from the past spoil a sweet romance?
Tristan Love, the youngest of seven brothers, is back in his hometown. He’s left the New York food scene and an abusive relationship behind him, but he holds his love of French pastries close to his heart and is determined to put his skills to use in a bakery of his own.
Returning to his childhood home means his meddlesome brother Simon will butt into his business, but before the bakery even opens its doors, Tristan’s delectable creations have the town’s mouths watering, and Jake, a cute mechanic, asks Tristan out. It all seems worthwhile….
That is, until the bakery burns down, Jake’s criminal past comes to light, and Tristan’s nasty ex rears his head where he is decidedly not wanted.
Sweet Nothings by T. Neilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Moving forward from an abusive relationship, while you're 'not that strong', is a little scary.
But Tristan at least had a courage to run away, and back home. Thank God he has his walls of brothers to protect him from whatever, whoever. Too protective even.
Enter Jake, an ex-con, and Tristan knew his life will never be the same again.
This actually a very sweet but not too sweet to give you diabetes after. Just a right dose of sweetness, a pinch of obsessed violent ex. Hell, they're ex for a reason!
I know that they're moving too fast, but I'm kinda liked it that Tristan trusted Jake with all is heart, never judged Jake for his past. I liked their dynamic and how sweet and protective Jake for Tristan.
You don't need to frown reading this except for Christopher, Tristan's ex. Ugh!
I don't know what kept Tristan stayed with him for that long. Okay, slash the past, let them move on with their life. And the brother, Garrett? Can we have his own story please?
I enjoyed the story, and you should too!
