Make It Sweet is a sweet entertaining contemporary romance that feels more like rom-com style than full of angst which isn’t a bad thing. We still see both Lucian and Emma go through some hard things that make them question their life now.
Emma is an actress who had a starring role in a popular TV show until the screenwriters suddenly cut her from the show leaving her feeling lost while Lucian (or Luc) is an ex hockey player that had to retire from the game suddenly because of a head injury who is now hiding at his grandmothers villa to lick his wounds and relax with some baking.
Hiding from the world, Lucian isn’t thrilled when he finds out that Emma is coming to stay at the Villa to figure out where she wants to go next, with both of them a little broken inside, they find an instant connection to each other that they both try to ignore. With their quick banter and spark of chemistry they are perfect for each other but still continue to fight their feelings and attraction to each other for most of the novel… this is definitely a slow burn romance.
I loved reading about their journey to accepting the love they both deserve with each other and I completely fell in love with the secondary characters. I loved Amelie and Sal and I definitely want a book about Brommy and Tate next!
If you’re looking for a sweet romance story with an entertaining plot and a meddling grandma this is the book for you!

It wasn’t (like some of the comments said) like it’s spin off Dear enemy because it was totally different circumstances...that was more of a bully romance to me. This book was like Kristens old game on series...loved those books and this had the same feel but more mature.
It had depth...though low on the drama side but just enough that you wanted to slap Luc up the side of the head at times. I loved the side characters so much as they fed into the story.
I love how in finding their way back in their journey’s, they found each other. It wasn’t easy, but life in general isn’t easy and that made it real, raw and incredibly sweet.
Thank you Kristen for writing from your heart. 5 stars from me.
Watching these two get to know each other and discover their feelings was an interesting ride, and I quite liked many of the secondary characters as well.
There were a lot of great parts to this that were to do with baking and made me want to try all the foods that were mentioned.
Enjoyed this one and would read more from this circle of friends if the author was to write more books in this world.
Fabulous performance from the 2 narrators, but I wouldn't expect anything less from Jacob Morgan & Ava Erickson.

The plot line in one line: An actress who’s been axed from a hit TV show falls for a hockey player who can’t play professionally anymore.
The good and the bad: This book wavered between really good and a somewhat lacking.
The first half is good - Emma and Lucian develop the feels as they get to know one another, and the sexual tension rises palpably. The second half is dull and a bit nonsensically angsty as Lucian develops an inferiority complex whereby he thinks Emma is too good for him, so he resists sleeping with her. It felt like the author needed to fill out the second half of the book and eke out the tension, so she chucked in a plot line that didn’t fit.
Another odd contrast was the writing. Some of the descriptions are really evocative - like when Emma spies on Lucian in the pool - but on the flipside, I got really fed up of reading about Lucian “grunting” (63 times!) and his “wintergreen” eyes (11 times). Although I will say well done to the author for ensuring Emma didn’t moan out loud when she ate all Lucian’s lovely baked treats - I hate when characters in books do this (no one does it in real life!)
There were also a few unrealistic elements that grated on me. Emma, world-famous star of what basically sounds like Game of Thrones, finds out she’s being axed and goes on a staycation at a resort owned by Lucian’s grandma. Despite being bound by a confidentiality agreement, when booking the break, Emma tells Lucian’s grandma she’s been axed, and then later on she tells a bunch of other people she doesn’t know from Adam (fans, no less!)! And yeah, this resort has no one else staying there, yet Lucian’s grandma can afford a stylist! Personally I find silly little unrealistic things like this really distracting.
So all in all, not the worst book but I’ve definitely read better romances.
This time we get the story of hot hockey player Luc and hot actress Emma and what happens when their worlds collide!
Absolutely loved Luc... his grumpy stand off nature made me smile with his grunts and non answers lol
Emma was sweet and loving.
And although they tried to fight it these guys had some instant chemistry sparking as soon as they met each other.
Side characters were also fab I'm this book especially Sal! Everyone needs a Sal in their life!
Certainly well worth following.
The audio versions of this book a welcome addition.
