To start off, if you haven't done so already, please read my Q&A with Polly Dugan. That will give you a pretty good glimpse into what I thought of the book. The Sweetheart Deal really surprised me. I didn't think it was going to be bad... I didn't think the writing was going to be subpar or the plot unrealistic. I just didn't think this book would be for me. In 2015, I've been attempting to branch out (occasionally) from the darker litfic that I tend to gravitate towards.
We're going to do something a little different here today at Black, White & Read Books. I was recently contacted by Little Brown & Company and asked to read a book titled The Sweetheart Deal by Polly Dugan. And I will fully admit... I was nervous. What if I didn't like it? What if I couldn't even finish it? Luckily, Polly Dugan ensured she didn't make a liar or a jerk out of me (thanks, Polly!)... as I absolutely loved the book and was excited to continue reading it each
