Just ok for me

I had a hard time getting into this for some reason but I did finish it. There was a lot of dishonesty between the two main characters ( small things, but still...). I had a hard time with narration, voice for Ada constantly sounded breathy. I did like how the two main characters finally came to terms with their losses and allowed them to bring them together.

Sweet romance, lovely story

I really enjoyed the story and characters. A charming street with sacrifice, loss, love, and growth. I didn’t love the readers voice for the main character- but really enjoyed the story.

Enjoyable

This story began with an emotional jolt as Ada loses her father in the first chapter. She inherits the family sweet shop which is not doing well and Ada and her cousin Lucas are struggling to keep it afloat. Daniel offers to buy the shop and turn it into a gluten free café however Ada refuses his offer. This was a sweet romantic story about a couple who have suffered loss and must deal with the aftermath. There were some very emotional scenes and an interesting and enjoyable storyline. I thought the narrator did a good job with the narration. I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily provided an unbiased review.

Sweet story

Love Me Sweetie is a sweet story of loss, love, and finding one’s way in life. I listened to the audiobook and had to adjust the speed (I usually listen at 1.25) so I could grasp the accent (not a bad thing!). I enjoyed the performer and she added to the experience with her varying voices.

It could be a great book to read....

however. . .the narrator was so annoying! I just couldn't listen one minute more. I think I'll read the book instead

Cute, clean story

I think this is a sweet book for a young adult audience. It could be the basis of a Hallmark movie. I had the audio book and had my kindle on just a little faster speed. It took me a minute to adjust to the English accent mostly because she was speaking so quickly but after a moment it was great. At one point I slowed down the speed to a more typical speed but found I loved the narrator at the faster speed. It made Ada sound just a little bit ditzy. Not dumb but light, airy and pink-haired. (I wish the model on the cover had pink hair instead of blonde). I thought she was lovable but wasn't sure she was made to be a business owner. It took me longer to like Daniel since I wasn't sure of his motives but it is clear that once he knows his loyalties, he is loyal to the end.

There is some sadness in the story as they are both dealing with grief and loss. At one point I got choked up with sorrow. There is a bit of a scary moment but luckily we don't see too many details since it fades to black.

So all in all, I enjoyed the sweet story. Nothing too deep and a fun read.

No sex, language or violence

A sweet, clean, contemporary story

This is the first story I have heard/read by this author. This is a sweet clean read/listen. Admittedly, the main characters at times did annoy me - the lead female character especially, was a bit more dramatic than what I generally like but she was spunky & not shy about being forward. - just very dramatic at times. Narration took a little getting used to but I feel that it was well done overall.
