Sweet Contradiction by Peggy Martinez review


~~Coming July 13th, 2013~~

***FAIR WARNING: If you are easily offended by books that happen to mention things concerning God, Religion, Etc., in a favorable or unfavorable light, then this book might not be for you.***

When Beth Michaels high tailed it out of the hole-in-the-road town she grew up in, she only had two goals. One—get as far away as quickly as possible, and two—never set foot in her parent’s home again. But when she receives a heart breaking call from her childhood best friend, Jen, she has no choice but to turn her ’56 Ford pickup back in the direction of Salem, Missouri to attend a funeral. 

There’s a new local in town when Beth arrives, and suddenly, it ain’t all that easy for her to remember her rules for dating. #1. Cookie-cutter-perfect guys ain’t her type. #2. Tie wearin’ and church frequentin’ is an automatic dismissal. #3. Most importantly, never date anyone from small minded, conservative, Bible-thumping towns like Salem. Unfortunately, Matthew Wright breaks all her rules and then some. 

Matt might be from a small town and have small town values, but that doesn’t mean he fits into a little slot of Beth’s preconceived notions. After all, ever so often good guys are good. Now if he could just convince Beth to let go of her past and give him a chance, he’s pretty sure there’s a whole lotta sweet under that prickly exterior. His own … Sweet Contradiction.


 ***FAIR WARNING: I am not a fan of religious fiction in any light.***

Just putting that out there.  Because of this, it made me skeptical about reading and reviewing this book.  I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try.

This book was so addicting!  I read it in a matter of hours and LOVED it!  My expectations were nothing compared to this cute romance about life, love and family.  

Even though this was a story about Beth, I absolutely loved Matt as a character.  He was so adorable!  Matt was full of determination, compassion and spontaneity.  And he sounded pretty hot.

The flow of the plot was smooth and didn't lull.  I thought that this book was the perfect romance for a summer read.  I'm giving it five glittery stars for surprising the heck out of me!
