It's Always Sonny by Kate Watson: Book Review

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

Sunshine melts ice eventually. And I’m starting to feel the burn.

People may call me an “overachieving ice queen,” but I would do anything for the people I love.

So when my friends ask me to host an event at their famous farm, I’m more than happy to help…until I discover I’ve been set up.

The “event” is actually a reunion for my ex’s family.

I pushed away Sonny Luciano years ago when my parents gave me the cruelest possible ultimatum. I told him it was so he could pursue his NFL dreams, but I was terrified that he’d eventually learn what my parents learned: I’m unlovable.

But Sonny doesn’t act like I’m unlovable. He acts thrilled to be with me. And the way he lights up when he sees me with his loud, loving family eclipses the sun.

Sonny has grown in all the right ways, and our connection is electric enough to make me forget why I pushed him away in the first place.

But when we get stuck alone in a tent during a freak storm, I have to decide if I’m going to let him melt my heart or if I’ll freeze him out forever.

It’s Always Sonny is a laugh-out-loud, dual POV, closed door romantic comedy full of delicious chemistry, banter, healing, and heart, but with no explicit scenes or cursing. It’s the third in a series of standalone novels that can be enjoyed in any order.

Kate Watson is an Amazon Top 50 Bestselling author of cheeky closed door romantic comedies.

She started writing at six years old and sold her first book, "The Heart People," to her parents for a quarter. It received rave reviews. She's written books full of heart, humor, and happily-ever-afters ever since.

Originally from Canada, she attended college at Brigham Young University and has also lived in Israel and Brazil. She is currently living her own happily-ever-after with her super cute husband and their four wild and wonderful kids.

She runs on swoons, fumes, and Jesus.

It's Always Sonny is the third book in the Sweet as Sugar Maple series. While you'll see some familiar characters, I think it could definitely be enjoyed as a standalone, though you might have a better understanding of the friendship dynamic if read in order. 

Kate Watson has very quickly become a favorite for me... and this book is the perfect example as to why. It's truly the perfect blend of beautiful, heartfelt moments with those that have me laughing out loud... and I am here for ALL of it! Sonny and Parker are both great characters that I found myself falling in love with more and more as the story went on. He's very much the sunshine in this pair and just such an enjoyable character to read about. His family was wild and crazy and had me laughing out loud throughout the story. They were meddlesome and loud, and I absolutely adored their brand of crazy. Sonny is more of a perfectionist who thinks she has to be great at everything. Her family is the complete opposite of Sonny's, leaving her feeling like she has to be perfect to be loved. I love how Sonny, his family and her friends all prove that idea wrong throughout the story. The growth from their first time around makes this a perfect second chance romance and one that I absolutely adored. 

It's Always Sonny is a closed-door romance with amazing chemistry, but nothing beyond kisses. While it is a romcom and overall has a lighthearted vibe, it does address a few harder topics that could be triggering for some readers, to include emotional abuse and infertility.
