Kady: My life is a complete and utter disaster. One major screw up after another. In other words - I’m trouble. I attempted college, but made a mess of that scene, too. Chalk it up to yet another disappointment in my parents’ ever-growing list of Kady failures. Deciding I needed an escape from reality, my best friend and I flew off to Europe, where we were going to have the time of our lives. The only problem with that plan is that I ran out of money after two weeks, and now I’m stuck in Florence, Italy with no means of getting home. See? Trouble finds me wherever I go. Gavin: All I ever wanted to do was play basketball. It’s all I’m good at. I bypassed college and went straight to the pros. I’ve been playing overseas in Italy for six months, gaining fame, fans and having fun. There’s only one problem. I miss home. I’m not too big to admit I’m homesick for my family and friends. But that all changed when I heard from Cade Griffin, a former college hoops star. He called and asked me to rescue his sister, Kadence, who’s stranded and alone here in Florence. Seems easy enough, right? Except for the fact that Kady Griffin is gorgeous, completely off-limits and a sweet disaster waiting to happen all over my life.
I haven't read the other books in the series however it wasn't necessary to enjoy the story of Kady and Gavin.For me Kady came across as a fun loving impulsive young woman but to her family she's a nightmare who lurches from one crisis to another. I found it sad that the beliefs of others had made Kady eventually start to believe them. I liked that she was a go getter, she breaks free from expectations and decides to forge her own path. Gavin is overseas playing ball he should be living the dream basking in the fans adulation and the women who want a piece of him but he's missing home. When we first meet him I thought oh no not another typical jock but he has a different side he's a funny sweet tender man.The two of them together have a combustible chemistry the back and forth banter between them is so funny. However can two people who aren't looking for commitment or a relationship get passed all their hang ups to forge something lasting? A fun sexy and at times poignant read.

I really enjoyed reading Sweet Disaster by Sierra Hill. I give it 4 stars. It's the story of Kady. She is a walking sweet disaster. She may have good intentions, but she never quite thinks things through. Stranded in Europe with no money and no passport, she must make a call home for help. She calls her brother and he puts her in touch with a brother of one of his friends. You'll have to read the book to find out how the rest of her trip unfolds because I don't want to give anything away.
Although this is book 4 in The Sweetest Thing Series, it can be read as a standalone. Sweet Disaster is the first book I have read in this series and I will definitely be checking out the others. I am also a big fan of dual perspective and that is what you get here. We get to see things from both Kady and Gavin's point of view.
This review is for The Sweet Spot Sisterhood
