How Sweet It Is by Dylan Newton


Q: Have you planned an event? 

I did all the planning for my wedding and everyone said I should become a wedding planner I’m like yea that was a lot of work lol. I had a hard time delegating or even knowing what I wanted.

Event planning and writers life combined for a close proximity romance! 

Well I’m not sure Kate could have made a worse first impression on Drake during a book launch proposal which was different than her normal wedding event planning business. She is a meticulous planner and wants each event to be perfect but somehow the strangest situations keep happening!

Drake is a popular horror writer and has a reputation because of it when really he is just a shy man who wants to write a romance every once in a while. Aren’t we all?

Drake was definitely sexy and down to earth with his awkward moments. Kate was professional but excited and we all have those kind of days sometimes. 

One time I was sitting at a bar in college oogling the bartender and the woman next to me started talking to me and asked what I thought of him. And I told her I thought he was really hot and after lots of chatting she told me she was his Mom 🤦‍♀️ and she told HIM to give me his number. Well that was mortifying but those sitcom moments happened to me all the time. I swear I thought I was secretly being filmed for some humorous show like Truman Show style lol, cue the canned laughter. Being serenaded on the muni platform, sliding down a steep street in heels while homeless guys clapped and then slipping on a banana peel. I kept looking for cameras and yelling to the sky REALLY, a BANANA PEEL?!?  As usual I digress. But just so everyone knows these things happen to REAL people! 

I also enjoyed the normalization of men writing romance! I loved the all of the tin man scene lol omg!

This book was just so sweet and I loved all of their moments together! And boo to the exes that use you for your fame! 

Thank you grandcentralpub and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

What happens when the queen of romance falls for the king of horror–you get “a hilarious rom-com comp,” perfect for fans of Beach Read. (Kirkus, starred review)

Event planner Kate Sweet is famous for creating the perfect happily-ever-after moment for her clients’ dream weddings. So how is it that her best friend has roped her into planning a bestselling horror writer’s book launch extravaganza? But the second Kate meets—or rather, accidentally maims—the drop-dead-hot Drake Matthews, her well-ordered life quickly transforms into an absolute nightmare.

Drake Matthews is tired of the spotlight and tired of his reputation as the Knight of Nightmares. He’s really a nice guy! But he’s not prepared for Kate, a fearless agent of chaos in steel-tipped stilettos, or for that sweet sting of attraction he feels for her. She’s inspiring him to take his writing in a whole new direction—one that no one expects. Because now Kate and Drake are changing up the rules, and this plot twist might just surprise everyone . . . including themselves.

“Fans of The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston, Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert, and Written in the Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur will adore How Sweet It Is!” –The Nerd Daily
