Review: My Sweetheart by Shannon Guymon

My Sweetheart (Love and Dessert Trilogy, #3) 

My Sweetheart: Book 3 in the Love and Dessert Trilogy by Shannon Guymon
Published September 15th 2013, 335 pages

Description: Jane Kendall loves her new life. She loves baking. She loves working with her sisters. And oh yeah, she loves Tate Matafeo most of all. Which would be great if he loved her back. Jane refuses to let heartbreak rule her life though, so she turns to Google and finds 10 easy steps on How To Fall Out Of Love. As helpful as Google is, Tate Matafeo is a hard habit to break especially when her new friend Meredith insists she come to a Rugby game and Tate happens to be on the team. Alex Foster is one man willing to take her mind off of Tate, but Jane knows trouble when she sees it and ends up getting a restraining order. Between Kit's wedding, Tate's mixed signals, Alex's obsession and her father's rehab, Jane wonders if she'll ever get her happy ending.

My Review:  Jane is the youngest sister. She's content to do her own thing and is a very sweet, easy-to-please woman and she's very happy and content with her new life as a baker. She is totally in love with local policeman, Tate. She makes every effort to get over him, since he rejected her almost from the start, yet she just can't. Determined to be happy without him, she signs up for a meet and match website so that she can meet new friends and ends up in the same circle of friends as Tate. Meanwhile, she's done fending off Alex, who seems to be stalking her, and decides to get a restraining order. There are many tumultuous waves in Jane's life, but she's determined to find her happily ever after. 

I love Jane! She really is a sweet, forgiving, and kind woman. She makes friends where ever she goes and is very down-to-earth. I love how she takes charge of her life, going to great lengths to get over Tate, to make new friends, and to find happiness. She's someone who makes lemonade out of lemons, for sure.

Tate is such a fun, loyal man. He has very good reasons for holding Jane at an arm's length. Family means everything to him and he's very passionate about what he cares for. I loved  the realizations he comes to and the way he handles everything. 

I also enjoyed seeing a character from a previous book redeem himself. I always knew he was a good guy, deep-down.

I hate to see this Trilogy come to an end and really hope these same characters make appearances in the trilogies that are tied to this one.  

Content: no language; mild-moderate violence--a fight (beating someone up), a kidnapping/question of rape; lots of clean kissing. Clean!
