Jake hasn’t always been a good guy. Demons from his past and a slew of bad decisions left him with scars and a criminal record. At the age of 27, he has been working hard to move on and leave all that behind.
“I’m a lonely, good-for-nothing sinner who’s finally seen, God. I’m a love-struck deviant who’s finally found a purpose. I’m a hard-headed son of a bitch who finally understands what it means to have something to live for.”
Sugar Malone is working her tail off to make her restaurant SUGAR a success. She left Georgia and her Grandma behind in the hopes of one day being able to pay her back and fix up their family home. When her mother’s latest husband attacks her, it sends her running right into the arms of one smokin hot Jake Wolfe.
This book was SWEET Oh SO sweet. And that was A-OK with me. Sometimes I like a little (OK A LOT) of syrupy goodness in a book. To be honest, though, it probably would have got an extra .5 star had there been even a little angst. They pretty much meet and it was all SMOOTH SAILING from there. Like I said, though, I still enjoyed the heck out of it.
I found it to be well written. The plot flowed nicely and I never felt like skimming. The two main characters were likable. The sex scenes were hot. The stalking plotline was wrapped up a little too easily IMO, but again, that was just a minor issue. And we even get a nice little look into the future epilogue.
Overall, a solid 4 star read that gets two thumbs up from yours truly.
