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.
Well, Welcome to Sugartown is no ordinary love story, that’s for sure!
Whilst the first half of the book was light and fun and sometimes hilarious, the second half was like a whole other story!
Once Elijah’s past caught up with him, and we found out more about him as a person, Welcome to Sugartown became somewhat dark and sometimes a little disturbing. That’s not to say I didn’t love it. Believe me, I did. In fact, as hard as it sometimes was, to read some of the more brutal scenes, it was great to read something that had a hard edge to it, something that, through all of the darkness, eventually bought love and light to those most affected – Ana and Elijah.
Also, what I really enjoyed about Welcome to Sugartown was that even though some of the things we saw within the book were things that most people don’t see in their day-to-day lives, the way Ana and Elijah behaved and reacted afterwards was completely believable.
Welcome to Sugartown is in no way a hearts and flowers kinda read, but with Elijah – the HOT, tattooed, biker with secrets, Ana – the sweet, feisty, loveable young woman, Holly – Ana’s crazy best friend and Sammy, Ana’s adorable little brother – you’re sure to meet someone you love!
For me, Welcome to Sugartown is a 4 star read and I cannot WAIT for book two – Enjoy Your Stay! If Welcome to Sugartown is anything to go by, it’s sure to be one hell of a ride!
