It's Time for TRULY SWEET by Candis Terry! Virtual Tour with Excerpt, My Review & Giveaway.

By: Candis Terry  
Releasing July 28th, 2015

Inside The Covers
Candis Terry returns to Sweet, Texas for the last time when former Marine Jake Wilder discovers how truly sweet love can be.

When the one you’ve always wanted

At sixteen, Annabelle Morgan hoped her crush on Jake Wilder was just a passing phase. Now she’s twenty-nine and nothing has changed except Jake. The once-carefree marine has come home with a giant chip on his shoulder. He insists a single mom like Annie deserves more than he can offer. Yet no matter how gruff his gorgeous exterior may be, Jake s toe-curling kisses convince her that this attraction is definitely mutual.

Becomes the one who wants you back

Butting heads with feisty Annie was always a thrill. Add other body parts to the mix, and Jake is in serious trouble. He can’t be a forever-and-family guy and Annie s not a friends-with-benefits kind of woman. But love has a way of changing the best-laid plans, and surrender has never been so tempting.

The outcome is truly sweet.

My Review:
TRULY SWEET is truly fantastic. What a way to end this favorite small town romance series. I loved every book in this series, but I honestly think Candis Terry blew it out of the park with Jake and Annie's story. She sends the reader on an emotional roller coaster this time around and you will laugh,cry and cheer at this heart-warming finale.
     Jake and Annie have known each other since they were kids and time has not erased their way of dealing with each other. The bickering and banter between the two keeps you laughing. Things have changed though. Instead of thinking of each other as a pain in the ass boy vs, girl kind of way, they are both struck with an attraction that wasn't there before. Or was it?
     Annie is sexy and sassy and also a single mom. There is no way that she will ever be a man's doormat again. She knows Jake better than he knows himself. He is scratching his head because he starts wondering why he can't stop thinking of Annie. Jake is a former soldier and dealing with the loss of his men including his best friend. Ms Terry's talent shines through as she writes a realistic portrayal of a soldier dealing with guilt and inability to move on with his life. He hides a lot of himself behind a natural charm and Annie knows instinctively how to be there for him.
     Jake and Annie were perfect for each other. Their chemistry is sizzling. With Annie's support and that of his friends and family, Jake realizes that he can't afford to push away his chance at love and the promise of a wonderful future. This series is wrapped up with heart-warming charm and it made me tear up a time or two...in a good way. Come revisit Sweet, Texas for a final time. You'll be glad you did.

Excerpt #6
While Jake made his way to a booth, he got a two-finger salute from Bill McBride, a Vietnam vet, and a chin lift from Ray Calhoun who were sitting at a table playing a game of checkers. At the big round table in the back, the Digging Divas Garden Club looked up in surprise. Instead of their usual exuberance, most just smiled as though they realized he might need some space. The tear sliding down Arlene Potter’s crinkly cheek could have been from allergies. Or it could have been because, even at her advanced age, Arlene loved a man in uniform. Not that he was wearing one. But that really didn’t matter to Arlene. She had a vivid imagination.
Jake tried to relax. He hadn’t known exactly what he’d be walking into here, but the silent acknowledgements worked just fine for him.
With his favorite booth vacant, he eased over to the middle of the red vinyl seat and stretched out his leg. As he looked out the window at the passersby on their way through their daily routines he took a breath to ease the ache slicing down his thigh. Moments later a menu sailed onto the table in front of him and a cup of ice water landed without a splash.
His head instantly came up.
Blue eyes focused, Annie Morgan stood there, weight balanced on one hip while she tapped the eraser of her pencil against the order pad.
In the past couple of years the Wilder family had expanded with three of his brothers having said the I do’s. Thanks to his brother, Jackson, and her sister, Abby, he and Annie were now related by marriage. Before that they’d been adversaries for as long as Jake could remember. Always outspoken and not a stranger to butting in where she didn’t belong, they’d gone head-to-head on many outlandish subjects. If he said the sky was blue, she’d argue it was turquoise. If he said a steak would take seven minutes to grill, she’d say five. If he said the Rangers would win by a homerun, she’d bet they’d lose with a strike-out. It seemed like the girl just liked to argue. More often than not, he’d rise to the bait. Just as he always did with his brothers. One of these days he’d learn to just sit back and smile.
Today probably wasn’t that day.
