Sweet Sofie is just that...SWEET. This is the 2nd book I have read in this series and I am hooked!
Sofie is the only girl in the family so while I have only read the first book, I figured this one would have a different feel to it because of that. And, it did...for me, in a good way. It's just a really sweet story of Sofie coming of age and her finally being able to share her feelings about Eric who she has been in love with since a child. It's fun to see the Moreno brothers and friends as kids since this story starts while Sofie is in grade school. You get to see the history and how, of course, the brothers and friends were completely over protective of Sofie. And, you also get to learn about Eric and see things from his point of view too in regards to Sofie. There is some angst/drama but what's a good romance story without it? I read a few reviews that were annoyed that the drama was over a kiss but remembering who and what Sofie and Eric was all about, this made sense to me and if there had been more of a betrayal, I think it would have ruined the story for me. Sofie is again, the sweet girl with eyes only for Eric.
Now, I do wish 2 things were addressed in the story in regards to Eric -SPOILER- don't read further if you don't want to know...
I would have liked to known just how promiscuous Eric had been. This is never addressed really and it bothered me that Sofie let him know she was waiting for him but he nevers says anything back to her. And, second, I think he should have fessed up to Sofie about what he did in Spain...dancing, holding hands, partying, and he licks her lips...ok, it's not a kiss but I feel like his actions were worse than Sofies and that wasn't addressed.
Otherwise, it's a super sweet story and I will contine with the series!
