***SUGAR IS A FULL LENGTH STANDALONE ROMANCE***
Country’s hottest bad boy.
That’s what they call me. My label ate it up until I became “too bad” for the good folks of country music. That’s when Hard Candy Records picked me up and took a chance on me. Probably not their smartest move, but I won’t tell them that. Especially when they’ve assigned me a babysitter to try and keep my ass out of trouble. One smart-mouthed, unimpressed, sexy as homegrown sin, Addy Mae Masterson.
She likes to pretend that she doesn’t like me and I like to let her.
I may have a past that haunts me and she may have a habit of getting attached, but damn if I don’t want to show her just how good this bad boy can be.
Oh my god. Go buy this book. It’s in KU, so you can read it that way too. I’ll wait until you get back. Done? Great.
I freaking LOVED this book! Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god. I can’t even with how much I enjoyed this book. I kept wanting to put it down, because I wanted to drag it out. But then I wanted more so I kept picking it back up.
Beau McCrae is walking sex, with a side of country bad boy. Addy Mae Masterson is a southern sweetheart who isn’t afraid to put Beau in his place. Their chemistry is off-the-charts. If it were possible to actually FEEL sexual tension, I felt it with this couple. *grabs fan*
The way the author approached this story was really phenomenal. I feel like we’ve read about the rockstar falling for the average girl before. But when we see Addy works for Hard Candy Records, and how intelligent and familiar with the industry she is, it changes the dynamic. Seeing these two have to work in the same industry together was fascinating, especially because Addy has to deal with the many (and I do mean MANY) females that clamor all over Beau. Beau, on the other hand, starts to see things through new eyes. One reason I enjoyed that was because it’s not like this change is necessarily forced on him. It happens gradually.
Addy’s character is someone who I’d love to be friends with. One aspect I loved about her was that she gets attached and she owns that. It was sort of used against her in the past, but I think it’s a sign of how big her heart is. I think so many times, we read a story about the heroine trying to hide her faults until it slowly sneaks out. Addy owns right up to it. Her friends know it, she knows it. She’s even very open with Beau about it.
Beau has his own demons to deal with. It was really interesting because as the layers peel back, things aren’t always what they seem. I don’t want to say more because I’ll end up going too much into it and it’ll spoil it for you.
If you’ve read “Stoned” by Mandi Beck, you get small glimpses of Stone, Willow, and the rest of the crew. With that said, if you haven’t read “Stoned”, you’ll still understand everything happening in this story. So still a true standalone.
If you love Sam Hunt, country music, rockstars falling in love, or just a good old Southern love story, you will enjoy this book. I found myself trying to keep a smile off my face the entire time.
