Series Review // Sweet Addiction by J. Daniels

October 09, 2023

Today's flashback is the Sweet Addiction series by J. Daniels. This is a contemporary romance that reads more like a romantic comedy. It features a woman who decides to have a fling at her ex's wedding and it turns into the love of a lifetime. I absolutely adored Dylan and Reese, but I also fell for the other characters that made this series a five-star read for me.

Have you ever read these books? Are you interested?

Sweet Addiction by J. Daniels

Sweet Addiction

Wedding hookups never amount to anything.

Those who partake in this wicked little activity know the rules. Get in. Get laid. Get out. There's no expectation of a relationship. It is what it is.

Dylan Sparks knows the rules. She’s familiar with the protocol. And she engages in the best sex of her life with a complete stranger at her ex-boyfriend’s wedding.

Reese Carroll doesn’t care about the rules. He wants more than just one night with Dylan.

And Dylan finds him too addicting to pass up.

Sweet Addiction is the story of one woman’s struggle to keep things casual, and one man’s desire to never let her go.

My Review - ★★★★★

I'd like to start off with what I didn't like about the book, which was the conflict, misunderstanding, miscommunication, mis-whatever towards the end. I realize this happens in most relationships, but this truly baffled me because until then everything was pretty much sunshine and rainbows. I didn't find a damn thing funny about this part. I wanted to reach inside the book and give Dylan a good shake and tell her to please talk to the man! I gave this book a 5-star rating so obviously this didn't really take away from my enjoyment of it.

Ok, on to the good stuff...

Dylan baked the cake for her ex-boyfriend's wedding. AWKWARD!! She attends the wedding to ensure the safety of her masterpiece. Enter Reese. He's the gorgeous owner of the lap she falls onto. Banter banter banter and they end up having some HAWT wedding sex in the washroom. They start a casual monogamous relationship. I'm no expert, but I didn't know these types of relationships existed. I always thought it was either casual or monogamous. Go figure! Anyway, we can see from a mile away that these two were going to catch feelings. I was anxiously awaiting the moment when Reese would finally convince Dylan to move things to an actual bed. I was not disappointed. We see them go from commitment-phobes to commitment junkies and it's beautiful.

The side characters all fit into the storyline exceptionally well. I can't wait to catch up with everyone in book 2.

Dylan and Joey were hilarious together "Jesus Christ. It was way too early to talk about dick sizes and which way they curve." I pause. "But for the record, he's massive and as straight as you pretended to be in high school." LMAO!!

Sweet Possession by J. Daniels

Sweet Possession

A sassy, in-your-face baker. A panty-stealing, dirty-talking accountant. And a bathroom quickie that changed their lives forever.

Wedding hookups never amount to anything.

Unless that hookup knocks you on your ass.

For Dylan Sparks and Reese Carroll, the big day can’t arrive soon enough. Dylan, stressed to the max from overbearing mothers and last minute preparations, struggles to keep her sanity. As for Reese, he’s fighting to not only keep his bride-to-be safe from creepy investors, but also to make it to the actual wedding day without losing his mind in the process.

Throw in a crazy group of friends, and a bachelor/bachelorette party weekend getaway, and you have a recipe for the sweetest wedding of the year.

My Review - ★★★★★

I went into this book with very high expectations and Jessica Daniels nailed it! I'm not going to regurgitate the plot because the blurb pretty much sums it up. Dylan and Reese get married. Woohoo!! And we get to see all of our friends again.

Fave quotes:

"Nobody finishes what I start when it comes to that p**sy. Not even you. You come when I make you. And it will be happening on my c*ck and in my mouth, not on your fingers."

"I will never regret how I fell in love with Reese. I can't. Every single second of it was worth it because it led us to this."

"Everyone has moments in their lives which are superior to others. They become an obsession, your reason for living, and all my moments involve Dylan. The moment I saw her, standing at the end of the row next to Ian. Our wedding day, when she officially became mine. And now this."

"Goddammit Billy." (absolute favourite)

Now I'm going to finish reading the Alabama Summer series so that I can dive into Brooke's tale in book 3 - Sweet Obsession.

Sweet Obsession

Sweet Obsession

Everyone knows Brooke Wicks loves to have a good time.

She’s not interested in getting serious, settling down, or limiting herself to one man. So when she meets the sexy, irresistible Mason King, she sees another opportunity to let loose and go wild. But the gorgeous Aussie isn’t interested in just a quick fling with Brooke, and if she wants to get into his bed, she’s going to have to do it on his terms.

Loving fast and hard has always been Mason’s philosophy.

He doesn’t want a meaningless connection, he wants it all, and he wants it with Brooke. When she makes her one desire known—to hit it and quit it—Mason wages a plan to ensure Brooke keeps coming back for more. Or so he hopes.

Getting her attention was the easy part. Keeping it might be damn near impossible.

My Review - ★★★★★

4.5 sweet stars!!

I loved this book. Brooke was kind of annoying but I expected this from the previous two books. She's been annoying. I read this book for Mason. If not for him and Joey I wouldn't have liked this book as much. Joey in Chapter 20 slayed me. Mason was so sweet and I loved his "yeah" just as much as Brooke did.

Fave quotes:

“That tastes like glue,” she mumbles, wiping the back of her hand against her mouth. She shoots me a disapproving look. “You packed glue bars and shoelace, Mason. Congratulations, we’re going to starve to death.”

And Joey from chapter 20... “God, I am f*cking fabulous. Someone should really write a book about me.”
Yes. Yes, they should.


  1. Yay! I love that you loved this series so much. I enjoyed it, but I loved her others even more.

    1. There hasn't been a book of hers I've read yet that I didn't love :)
