The title matches the story PERFECTLY! Sweetness was full of small bits (and sometimes big ones)of sweetness throughout the story. There were so many "awwwwww" moments and wonderfully executed scenes. I loved Lindsay Paige's writing style. It was simple and yet quite efficiently got the message through. All the characters were understandable and the story itself was AH-MAZING.
Character-wise Emily was okay. She was too..weak to be likeable in the beginning, but slowly as I got to know her and her story better, I started liking her. Sometimes, her childish nature became really irritating but overall, she was just fine I guess.
Jake was...well I don't know how to describe him. Guys like him are not real. He was SUPER understanding, SUPER patient, SUPER good-looking, SUPER sweet, SUPER everything. In short, HE WAS SUPERB!! While reading the story, I couldn't believe that a guy can do so much for a girl he likes. It was adorable. I think Jake sort of tops my list of sweetest guys in books. His character was fantabulous and his POV in the story was truly well-written by Ms. Paige.
The other characters were pretty cool too but I can't say much about them since the whole story basically revolved around Emily and Jake. I really liked Emily's dad and also little Drake. His upbeat and enthusiastic nature was cute and interesting.
All in all, Sweetness was really, really good and if you're a YA romance lover then you're absolutely gonna love it! With it's swoon-worthy and still in limits romantic scenes, enjoyable characters and an AWESOME story, it'll surely make your heart go pitter-pat! :D
Five was a magical and engrossing read. Once I started reading it, I really couldn't stop. The story was good, the characters were nice and the way it was executed was truly awesome. The execution of the concept was ah-mazingly done by Ms. Rich.
Even though I really liked the story, I can't say the same for the main female protagonist. I mean, it felt like all she ever did in the book was whine, ruin the situations even further, get attracted to faeries and whine some more. Even if she had done something good, I probably can't remember it because she honestly irritated me A LOT. I can't say I absolutely hate her but I don't like her that much either. Maybe in the next book, she'll be less whiner..?
All the other characters were nice and I might possibly be in love with Luke. There's just something in that name. And the guy himself was amazing. I mean, I really did like Zach but I felt that Luke was much, much better than him. Of course, he could've been even more cooler if he had the awesome Pegasus instead of Zach.
The exact rating for this book would be 3.5 mainly because I didn't find Rayla's POV much interesting. Other than that, I found Ms. Rich's writing style totally flawless and the magical feeling that I always want and expect in faery novels, was well put in this book.
