sweetly, deeply, absolutely sounds like just the sort of book a blog called definitely, possibly, maybe should be reviewing. it's a sweet confection of a romance. jared crew is a player. he's unapologetic about it. he's always noticed jenny boyd, but she's off-limits since her brother happens to be his best friend's husband.
but the thing about jenny is that she is as much a player as jared is. i liked that there was no judgment made on the kind of exploits that jenny got herself mixed up in. both she and jared have a long list and that's totally cool. jared never makes a big deal about it, and while jenny frets about jared's inability to commit, it's not in a way that feels hypocritical or over-the-top.
the attraction between these two crazy kids sizzles and eventually they give into it. but when the condom breaks they face a 10-day period of uncertainty. will there be consequences to their impulsive hook-up? and if there are consequences would they really be unwelcome?
as they wait out the dreaded two weeks to figure out if there is actually anything to worry about, we see their friendship deepen. both jenny and jared are good people. they are fun-loving and artistic and creative. and they have a lightness to them so that even when they are absolutely stressed, you never feel like there is only sturm and drang between them. it's great. this was just a sweet quick read. totally enjoyable. this one is actually the third book in the sweet love series, but you don't need to read the first two to enjoy it.
