Book Review: Sweet Talk by Susan Mallery

Don't ask Claire Keyes. The twenty-eight-year-old piano prodigy has never had a regular boyfriend, much less a real romance. Her music career has left little room for friends or family--which is just part of the reason she hasn't seen the family bakery or her two sisters in years.But now Nicole is sick, and Jesse is AWOL. Despite the fact that Claire can't boil water, she's determined to play caretaker. Connecting with her sisters tops her to-do list...along with falling in love, or at least in lust, for the first time.

Ruggedly sexy Wyatt just might fit the bill. Although he keeps saying that he and Claire come from entirely different worlds, he lights up hotter than a bakery oven whenever Claire is near. If this keeps up, she just might sweet--talk him into her bed...and her life.
This year I've decided to reread some books that I never reviewed before. I wanted to see if I still felt the same way about them. Back in the day I loved Susan Mallery's romances. Now she does more of a women's fiction with romance that I'm not a fan of, but I do miss her books so she's one of the ones that are up for reread. 

I can remember reading Sweet Talk like it was yesterday and that's because I hate Nichole. No, she isn't the main heroine of this story. She's the sister of the heroine. Now saying that I think that she totally overshadowed everyone else in the book. This series is a trilogy, and you'll hear me say this in all of them. Including her own story. 

I love Clair and really felt for her. She is blamed for things that she had no control over at all. Not only that her sister bad mouthed her to everyone and then they treated her like crap. Even with all that happing she never once gave in a treat other badly. 

At first Wyatt made me made by the way he treated Clair. I got it, he was friends with her sister and believed everything that was said. I loved how good of a father he was, and he did all he could to take care of his daughter and give her everything he can. His daughter is a rock star of this story. She's a sweet, caring kid that stood for those she cared for. 

I know that this review sounds like I didn't like the book but that's not true. I just had so many issues with her sister, and I will address more of that when I review the next book in the series. I did really like Claire and Wyatt together and when Claire and her sister are getting along, they stand for each other. It just to get to that place took a big part of the story. There is a main plot that goes throughout each of the stories, so you really need to read them in order.
