Eight months ago, I made a deal with my best friend. This wasn’t your typical pact. No, we had to take a different route. The deal was that if we were still single by fall, we would join online dating. Yes…now I am that girl. Just me, though, because she met a guy and saved herself from the awkwardness of dating people you meet via the Internet.
Cheesy pick up lines.
I don’t want to be “Savannah, profile 8713,” but a pinky promise is a promise you keep. What I wasn’t counting on was meeting a guy at the local bar.
So what happens when you decide to open yourself up to new opportunities? You might just cross paths with someone who makes you believe in love. Parker Wilde brought out the best in me and understood the worst, but when an amazing opportunity presents itself and our lives take different directions, is being sweet on Wilde enough for us?
4 Sweet STARS!!

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 as the Hero.
“I may not be from Tuscaloosa, but I am a southern boy, Savannah.”
I was on edge the whole book thinking that the relationship between Parker and Savannah was ‘too good to be true’.
“What we have so far is perfect, and I bask in that relationship but also fear it’s too good to be true.”
I kept thinking, there must be some huge issue about to arise. But it never happened. In hindsight, that was a good thing! The characters were intriguing, keeping me interested enough to continue. Parker had this protective and playful side to him. Their flirty banter was great! Their dates are told in great length and while I would generally be disinterested in every minute detail – I found this quite refreshing! I could feel their connection building. And it helped, with the dialogue between Parker and Savannah, to learn more of their characters. Parker was passionate about his career and this was something Savannah could easily relate to. In her past, she’d always have a hard time balancing her life outside of work with work. Work always came first.
“He is someone I would actually put my career to the side for and find balance with. Someone, I want to prioritize my life with.”
When Parker is offered his dream job, and it’s a state away, I really felt the push and pull from them. Savannah, knowing he can’t miss out on this opportunity. Feeling that if he does, he could resent her in the future. And Parker, not wanting to leave her.
This book was written with such finesse! Just enough angst, just enough emotion, just enough hot factor, just enough sexy… contained all the perfect ingredients! And the epilogue… yay!! I loved getting that glimpse into their future! A great end to Savannah and Parker’s story!
“Guy meets girl at a bar, girl is snappy, guy is pushy, finally they date and its perfect. Yup, sounds about right.”
