Book Review - Sugar on Top by Marina Adair

ABOUT THE BOOK


She's sassy and sweet

The last thing Glory Mann wants is to become chairman of the Miss Peach Pageant in Sugar, Georgia. Spending months hearing nothing but the clinking of pearls and judgment? No thank you! But when Glory is forced to take the rap for a scandal she didn't commit, the judge sentences her to head the committee. Even worse, her co-chairman is rugged, ripped . . . and barely knows she's alive. 

He's ready and willing

Single dad Cal McGraw can't take any more drama in his life. After a difficult divorce, his little girl became a boy-crazy teenager and his hands are full. The last thing he needs is to spend his down time with the town bad girl. Glory is pure trouble-tempting and tantalizing trouble. But he can't deny the strong chemistry between them, or how her touch turns him inside out. Now as squabbles threaten to blow up the contest and the town of Sugar itself, Cal must risk everything on the sexy wild card to get a second chance at love . . .

REVIEW

I had not read the first book in this series, and never felt lost or like I was missing something. I really enjoyed Cal and Glory as a couple and separately as individual characters as well. First and foremost, Cal is a great Father, which is one of the most attractive qualities in a man. He’s such a good Father that sometimes he makes a bad boyfriend, which makes for great conflict. Glory is easy to love too. She isn’t perfect, but she is interesting and caring and it’s easy to relate to someone who is just trying to get by and live her life. Together these two are a great couple and it is easy to understand why they shouldn’t be together but also why it seems almost inevitable.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
