Title: Welcome to Sugartown
Author: Carmen Jenner
Genre: Contemporary New Adult
Release Date: November 3, 2013
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.
We had to pick this book out. Can't go wrong with a small town girl and a hot motorcycle guy coming into town. Ana has to take care of her Mom's pie restaurant. Which so happens to be across from her Dad's car and motorcycle shop..that Elijah works at. Ana is over her head with him. He is hot, manly and then she finds out he has a past. A very dangerous past.
Once she got involved in the past, she was done. She breaks it off for awhile. This is the part I was conflicted with. Elijah falls for her deeply. But things happen when they broke up and I just wanted to slap him in the face. But they were broken up. This is my inner girl thinking here. Jerk.
In the end, you can't help but love him. Despite all the really bad things that happen(OMFG that ex-boyfriend!) they must end up together. You will find out what happens!
I would rate this book a 4.2. it keep me interested all the way through. And Elijah is CRAZY. But in a good way.
Carmen Jenner is a thirty-something author, doctor, pilot and CIA agent.
She's also a compulsive, flagrant prevaricator who gets to make things up for a living.
While Sugartown may not technically exist, Carmen grew up in a small Australian town just like it, and just like her characters, she always longed for something more. They didn't have an Elijah Cade, though. If they did, you can be sure she would have never left.
