Review: Sweet Addiction: A Romantic Comedy by L.J. Scar


Goodreads Summary:

One skilled contractor. One novice real estate investor. One unrealistic time frame.

   Beck’s business card motto is “Don’t worry; I’ll fix it.” He prides himself on his skills…especially with women. After filing permits for a new job, he becomes awestruck by an unusual beauty making a big mistake. When she has the highest bid on a sheriff’s auction foreclosure and becomes the new occupant of the house across the street from him, his abilities get put to the test.
    Hayden’s job as the office lackey is less than gratifying. While filling in for the junior vice president on a property acquisition she gets outbid, and then finds herself the not so proud owner of fixer upper with a questionable past. Suddenly out of work, out of money, and down to her last candy bar, she must flip her first home in time to pay off a risky loan before interest starts accruing at a staggering rate. 
     She’s determined to do this on her own. He’s determined to help. As renovation turns into romance, things get fixed, things get broken, while hearts, heads and homes get flipped.

My Review

Sweet Addiction was an adorable romance filled with laughs and cute moments between two stubborn characters who are clearly perfect for each other. Recently fired Hayden finds herself in an even more difficult situation after impulse buying a major fixer upper. Fortunately for her, the sexy Beck lives across the street and is more than willing to help her flip her house. Both of them have an instant attraction, but events from Hayden’s past hold her back from divulging in her deeper desires.

Hayden’s character and extreme love for chocolate was so relatable for me! Her POV was cute and quirky and made for a great narrator. Though Beck’s feelings for her seemed to come on strong right off the bat, I still enjoyed reading his perspective and seeing him fall for her!

The story overall was charming and sweet, it was fast paced and filled with all the perks that every good romance has! There was bickering, bantering, fighting and almost break ups, cute family moments and a future fast forward epilogue. All loose ends were tied up and the conclusion left me completely satisfied! If you’re looking for a cute and easy going romance, then Sweet Addiction is the book for you!
