Description

Max Jennings is in a bad mood. It's not anything you did; it's just that secrets from her past make it her natural state of being. But she's not going to talk about it or share her feelings, so don't bother asking.

Max's bad mood means that very few people actually truly understand her or know that her secret dream is to be a pastry chef. When a rare opportunity to work for world-famous Avis Phillips presents itself, Max jumps at the chance. Avis and her staff aren't stingy with the tough love, so Max spends every spare minute practicing her craft. As she bakes brownies and custards, cookies and galettes, she builds an unlikely friendship with a man she once loathed and finds herself falling into something she's spent the last six years avoiding. Will she let her painful past stand in the way, or will she muster the strength to forgive herself and realize her full potential?

Love love love!

I can’t quit these audio books!
I find myself listening to them and smiling along at the best moments and feeling the emotions of the characters and their stories.
The story had been developed in a way that you can visualize the characters and the settings down to the smallest details.

absolutely love this story

I bought this book even before I finished the first book in the series. I thought the first book was amazing and this second book was just as amazing if not more than the first book.

Don't narrate your own book

I think the narration of this book was the books biggest downfall. Rachel is a good writer but her performance should be left to the professionals. I'm not even sure if I really didn't like this book or if it was just listening to it that turned me off.

Great for a Second in a Series Book

This is the second in The Girl's Series by Rachel Hollis. I picked it up immediately after reading the first book, Party Girl. Sweet Girl has all the same characters as Party Girl, but the point of view is Max's, Landon's roommate.

Max is rough, gruff, and aloof. But underneath she is a softy. The reader knows something happened to her along her life's journey, but we don't know exactly what. Max is independent and does not rely upon her family's wealth to get by, preferring to make it on her own. She lands a job working in the bakery of her dreams located in the hotel where she excels at tending bar, creating unusual drink concoctions customers have never tasted before.

After several months at the bakery, she learns the job was only short-term. She was a fill in until Joey, long time employee, returns after maternity leave. This not only shatters her dream of being a pastry chef, but also her income. What to do now? She hasn't told Landon or any of her other friends, or family, what she's been doing and finds herself in the difficult position of asking, or not asking, for help. Her relationships with her family are strained, and she pushes away everyone else, so feels a bit stranded. And she continually beats herself up for being who she is.

Although her friends want to come to the rescue, they're unsure where to begin since they don't know what's wrong to begin with.

The author, Rachel Hollis, reads this book herself. But because she has little, if any variation between the voice of Landon and Max, or any other characters for that matter, the beginning is confusing. Who is speaking? Who's point of view of are we in? We've completely associated Rachel's voice with Landon from book one. But here, in book two, it's the same voice, now, for Max. Although the adjustment can be made in a few chapters, the author could use some professional coaching on how to vary voice tones so the readers know who is speaking. In an audio format, this type of differentiation is essential. Still, it's not enough to prevent anyone from buying the book.

It gets better..

I did not think there was any way a book in this series could get better than “Party Girl” and I was wrong. I loved “Sweet Girl” and it is definitely my favorite of the series. Mac and Taylor are some of my favorite characters and definitely one of my favorite love stories yet!
Everything I read by Rachel Hollis just gets better and better. Love her!

Struck with Awe.

I Loved this Sequel as much, if not more than the previous book.
I couldn't put it down. I had to find it what would happen next.
Great read for Adults, Mild language used.

I'm so excited to catch up with the characters in the next book. Very well written.

Good Story, Poor Narration

I love the Max Jennings character, and that was the driving force behind my purchase of this book even though I find the narration by Rachel Hollis to be very poor. I actually enjoyed the story line of this second book more than I did the first book. It has lots of layers to keep the reader interested. You have the reveal of Max's hidden past, her quest to fulfill her dream of being a pastry chef/bakery owner, and the requisite romance. The book even manages to show more growth in the character of Landon as the best friend/roommate who steps up help Max deal with her past.
If Rachel Hollis wouldn't insist on being the narrator of these books I would find them much more enjoyable. She doesn't even attempt to differentiate the characters, whether they be male or female. Every character speaks with the same drawl even though they are not all southern. In the first book of the series, Party Girl, the listener becomes accustomed to that voice belonging to Landon. It is difficult to get into the 2nd book with that same voice being assigned to Max. I think it's a flaw in these books that the producers should have recognized. That said, I enjoyed the book overall.

Identified with main character

I loved Party Girl SO much, but loved this book just a little bit more-probably because I identified so well with the main character. I might actually re-listen to it, that's how much I loved it! I enjoy how sweet and innocent the writing is. It's not too serious, but has enough "drama" to keep me interested. I definitely recommend listening/reading if you're looking for something light!

Sweet Story

I like the story a lot. The narrator has too strong an accent to get into it, especially considering in book 1, the main character actually was from Texas. Knowing the MC in this one is supposedly from LA, and the previous MC is a big part of this story, makes it hard to figure out who is speaking. It's very distracting that they all have varying degrees of the author's Okie spin on a Texas twang. I think this story would be better served in actual print form. Again, I really enjoyed the story line.
