Genre: New Adult
Ana Belle never wanted anything more than to hang up her apron, jump on her Vespa and ride off into the sunset, leaving Sugartown in the dust.
Elijah Cade never wanted anything more than a hot meal, a side of hot arse and a soft place to lay his head at night where he could forget about his past.
But you know what they say about wanting: you always want what you can’t have.
Nineteen year-old virgin Ana is about to discover that’s not quite true because a six foot three, hotter than hell, tattooed, Aussie sex god just rode into town. He’s had a taste of her pie and he wants more– no really, Ana bakes pies for a living, get your mind out of the gutter.
She’d be willing to hand over everything tied up in a big red bow, there’s just one problem; Elijah has secrets dirtier than last week’s underwear. Secrets that won’t just break Ana’s heart, but put her life at risk, too. When those secrets come to light, their relationship is pushed to breaking point.
Add to that a psychotic nympho best friend, an overbearing father, a cuter than humanly possible kid brother, a wanton womanizing cousin, the ex from hell, and more pies than you could poke a … err … stick … at.
And you thought small towns were boring.
Welcome to Sugartown.
Content Warning: Intended for a mature 18+ audience. Contains explicit sex, oodles of profanity and a crap-tonne of AWKWARD.
My Review: I got my hands on this beauty and could not put it down. From the start you were glued and there wasn’t a thing to make me put it down until the very last word. Yes, this book was that amazing.
Anywho, Ana is this lovely lady who needs some change. Just get up and leave Sugartown, that’s her big dream. Which takes a turn when this very hot guy shows up. Elijah and Ana right from the start you knew something was going to happen. But Elijah is here because of a deal and to work. He doesn’t plan to stay here long or fall for anyone.
But of course nothing is smooth sailing around here. Ana and Elijah seem like the perfect duo and things aren’t going too bad for them. They hit a few bumps, but you see Elijah won’t quit and Ana needs to relax and not be so scared to have her heart broken again.
However, when Ana’s life is in dangers, Elijah screws another while drunk, Ana just can’t take it anymore. To top it all off, her ex does something horrid to her. That’s when she runs to Elijah and then he does something. In a way it shows he loves her, in another way…..it was illegal.
It took time, it was a wild ride, but the ending was so worth it. Finally get the ending you’d be hoping for. I can’t wait to dive into the rest of the books.
