ARC Review: The Sweetheart Fix by Miranda Liasson
Jack Monroe absolutely loves being the mayor of his small town. Except when he actually has to talk to people. Can’t he just fix the community problems in peace? Like right now, he’s mediating the silliest dispute two neighbors could possibly have. When the town sweetheart steps up and solves everyone’s problems in five minutes flat, Jack realizes what this town really needs…is a therapist.
Juliet is able to soothe anyone—other than the surly mayor, it seems. But there’s a reason they say opposites attract, because all of their verbal sparring leads to some serious attraction. Only, just like with fireworks, the view might appear beautiful—but she’s already had one public explosion that’s nearly ruined everything…how can she risk her heart again?
I have to say this was an enjoyable read. Okay, at times it was. Others which I'll talk about weren't so good. For the most part, I really liked this story. I enjoyed the characters and was happy to be back in this very cute town.
I really liked Jack and felt for him. He had so much pressure on him about his grandmother that it was sucking the joy out of his life for him. He's a good man and without so much family pressure I think would be an even better mayor.
Juliet is also a character I think you'll really enjoy. She's the reason I sometimes got a bit pissed at the story. I was so tired of hearing about how she couldn't be a good couples counselor because of her past. We all have pasts and keep doing our jobs. Juliet really cares about her hometown and wants so badly to help the people of it if they'd just give her a chance. I loved the idea of her helping the mayor and giving helpful advice.
Together these two work. They don't get that right away but as time goes on they do. You'll enjoy the ride with them. I think you'll also really enjoy the townspeople and their lives. I know I did. I want more from this series and can't wait to see what will be next.
If you're into small-town romance then you'll really enjoy this series. There is a bunch of sweet characters that stand for each other and at times even interfere a bit in each other lives. How could I not enjoy this story? I will be waiting for what comes next.
