One Sweet Love by Megan Byrd: Book Review

 **Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.


Julie Quinn learned her new motto the hard way. These days, she's happy putting all her energy into her chocolate shop and hanging out with her dog. After all, dogs and chocolate will never let you down.

Jayson Thompson is an attorney who loves helping family overcome the hurdles of adoption. But the joys of his job only accentuate his longing for a love of his own.

Dousing Julie in coffee isn't the best first impression he's ever made, but he's determined to leverage it into a date. Physical attraction soon grows deeper as Julie realizes there's more to Jayson than his smoldering good looks.

However, trauma from Jayson's past and Julie's deep-seated trust issues may prove too much for even love to overcome.

This strangers-to-lovers contemporary romance has humor, lots of food and chocolate, unusual dates, and sweet kisses. This book is the second in the series, but can be read as a standalone.

One Sweet Love is the second book in the City Love series. I had not personally read the previous book in the series and found that it read just fine as a standalone. 

If you enjoy a slow burn romance, this one is definitely for you! I admit, I usually prefer a bit of a faster burn, but this one worked for these characters. I mean there were definitely moments where I wanted to shake them a little bit and make them communicate… but well, that just goes to show that I was invested in their happily ever after. They both had issues in their pasts that affected the relationship, and I enjoyed getting to see them work through those issues. In fact, one of my favorite things about this story was the positive role therapy played in it. Normalizing talking about mental health is so important, and I definitely appreciated that in this book. 

Overall, I thought this was a good read. The romance was as sweet as the truffles, and I really enjoyed it. If you’re looking for a new RomCom this is certainly one to check out.
