Sweet Haven by K.C. Lynn

RECIPE:

Two cups of an arrogant, dirty talkin’ firefighter who has an obsession with peaches and the forbidden girl who smells like them.

One tablespoon of a sweet schoolteacher trying to find her place in the world while attempting to resist her brother’s sworn enemy.

A slice of fate that has their hearts questioning the past and the consuming need they have for one another.

A dash of desire.

A pinch of rivalry.

A sprinkle of déjà vu.

Mix together in a large bowl to create a combustible passion and a future that neither of them could have ever predicted.

Bake at 350° for a rich serving of destiny and a love that could burn for eternity.

A timeless recipe that is sure to fill your heart with a generous helping of Sweet Haven.

This a longer length novella and is the second book in the Sweet series. It is told in dual POV, has an HEA, and no cliffhanger. Since Samantha and Jase are recurring characters from Sweet Temptation and Sweet Love, I recommend reading both books prior to this but it isn’t a must.

Warning: Due to mature subject matter, such as explicit sexual situations and coarse language, this story is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

Since this cover was released, I have been anxiously awaiting this book. The cover is beautiful and for whatever reason, I am completely enchanted by it.

This story is Samantha and Jase’s love story and I really can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed this book. I have a lot of respect for the author with this story. She could have taken this story down several different avenues, but she didn’t and I appreciated that. I say this because I felt the story was more authentic, not to mention realistic, being told as it is. I think adding too many other variables could have changed the entire dynamic of the story and it would have made it harder to really believe in Sam and Jase’s love.

Samantha is ranking pretty high on the favorite heroines of all time list right now. She was absolutely fantastic. I loved that her character was strong, yet could still be vulnerable. By Chapter One, I knew I liked Samantha (does anyone have some Tabasco?), and by Chapter Seven, I absolutely loved her. She was an absolute pistol!

Jase was also pretty fantastic. My favorite facet of his character was that he could man up to things. If he said the wrong thing, he immediately knew he had to make it right. When things got tough, he stepped up to the plate. I also loved that he knew to do the right thing. Jase Crawford is not the kind of man who asks for advice and doesn’t take it. He is easily one of the best male characters I’ve read.

I think one reason that Samantha and Jase’s love story really touched me deeply was that both of them were very self-aware. I don’t want to give any spoilers but I will say that Sam and Jase know to embrace what they have. It’s not a constant battle of wills. Some books, the couple fights so hard to not be together that by the end, you’re wondering how they even came together at all. But not Sam and Jase. I found that incredibly refreshing.

I would absolutely recommend this book. I know I just finished the book a few days ago but I have already found myself wanting to go back and re-read their story all over again. Sam and Jase have a love that sticks with you and I intend to enjoy it over and over.
