Title: Sweetness

Author: Lindsay Paige

Source: ebook from author for review

Emily wished she was invisible. But after moving to a new town with her dad, a charming boy makes it impossible for her to disappear. Despite her feelings of unworthiness, Emily soon finds herself drawn to the safety of Jake's world.
Good looking and the star of the hockey team, Jake has a lot going for him. What most people don't see is the difficult life he has at home. When quiet Emily steals his heart, Jake vows to help her discover she is worthy of love.
Just when the two of them realize the sweetness of their relationship, they are put to the test. Only together can they overcome their haunted pasts to fight for a future together.

My take...
Sweetness is a 2 part book and recently Lindsay Paige took the book off the market for more revisions…I decided to do a review for part one for now. Paige also mentioned maybe making part two a sequel. Once part two is put back on the market I will post my review for it.
Emily walks the halls of school with her head down, never making eye contact. She has a past that she wants no one to know about. After a couple years of verbal abuse at the hands of her mother, she comes to live with her father. But the damage has been done and she is broken inside. Jake, the star hockey player of the high school, has a secret of his own. Ever since he lost his mother to cancer, his father has become an alcoholic blaming Jake for his mother's death. With a home life that is anything but normal, he is left caring for his younger brother Drake. When a class project pairs the two together, their lives are forever changed.
Emily strikes up a friendship with Drake, bringing Jake and her closer together. Slowly Emily starts letting Jake into her life, revealing parts of her past. Jake helps Emily find her old self again, by helping her feel worthy of friendships and love. He helps her turn all the doubts she has in her life into hope and acceptance. But when something happens at school, will it all be too much for the couple or will they be able to overcome all the odds stacked against them?
Most excellent storyline and characters you are sure to fall in love with. Paige’s perfect detail make you feel as if you are watching the story play out for you on a tv. This young author’s work is one you are going to want to watch out for.
