“Why do I have a feeling you’re going to be the one to walk away from me first?” Theo
“Because I am.” Felicity
HOLY HELL talk about a book delivering something completely different and unexpected to what we had imagined. First things first, PLEASE GO INTO THIS BOOK BLIND! This is one of those reads where you really do need to allow the author and her story to lead you and if you do you’ll be well rewarded….not to mention, you’ll be hit for six!
We loved everything about this book. We loved the story, we loved the characters and we loved the unpredictable direction the author took us in!
“Why do you keep running, Felicity?”
“The real question is, why aren’t you, Theo?”
As we started to read Sugar Baby Beautiful, we expected a steamy romance where a damaged CEO billionaire meets a troubled beautiful young woman type read……you know…..they have HOT sex (oh boy do they have HOT SEX), fall in love…basically we were expecting a straightforward VERY steamy romance! Whilst we got all that….we were also treated to a whole lot more and we should’ve known J J McAvoy would have something hidden up her clever sleeve!
‘She seduced me just by breathing.’
We could not anticipate where this author was taking us and as the story progressed we found ourselves ensnared in her story, completely invested in the characters, ordering takeaway to keep the family at bay and unable to move from our Kindles for a minute. We both finished Sugar Baby Beautiful in ONE SITTING. Honestly, we COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN! Wow!
“The lover and the alpha. I was going to show her she could have both.’
The characters were beautifully written and drew us in every step of the way. Theo Darcy….oh Mr Darcy…he of the black hair, green eyes, alpha with a touch of possessiveness and sweetness, with a net worth of $32 billion who left us a babbling mess. This man is pure sin and sex with a big dash of mystery and charm thrown in.
‘I had seen men who knew they were attractive, but he looked like sex. Like he had just had it, he was going to have it again, and he had mastered it.’
Felicity Harper was such an intriguing character. We really couldn’t get a handle on this young woman who appeared to be living a life that didn’t reflect her accomplishments. She certainly kept us on our toes!
“We all have scars, Felicity. It’s a hazard of living. Any person who is bright and bubbly all the time is probably hiding something.”
J J McAvoy delivered an intoxicating, surprising, enthralling and outstanding story and it’s one we can’t stop talking about, reliving every moment and all the while thinking…..‘We can’t wait for you guys to read this one!’
