Welcome to Sugartown - Review


Welcome to Sugartown by Carmen Jenner
Publication date: November 3rd 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

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.

My Review
This story had a little bit of tattoed motorcyclist, biker gangs, betrayal, love, friendship, family and home!
Elijah is yummy.... but warning... he has a dirty mouth. I think that is what makes him so irresistable! He is one big ball of yummy! He comes into town to work for Bob, Ana's dad. He has a mysterious past that he doesn't want to reveal but eventually we all know what he is running from. From the moment that Elijah sees Ana he is blown away by her. He knows he has to have her but doesn't realize at first that she is a virgin. He knows she deserves better than him but he can't seem to leave her alone.
Ana's little brother, Sammy, brought humor to the story. You know how kids are... they repeat everything you say! So, of course, with the sailor mouth that Elijah has on him you never know what Sammy will learn and start repeating!
Ana has had a rough past too.... not only is her mother dead and she has a step-monster but the only guy from the past she trusted ended up leaving her to sleep with another girl since she wouldn't give out. Ana wants to be with Elijah but after she finds out about his past she struggles with her feelings. His past catches up to him and puts both of them in danger. He does go after the one person that hurt Ana which made me want to scream for joy. Unfortunately it only puts an even bigger hole between them.
At the end I just wanted to smack Ana and tell her to forgive him already. I know she was hurting but they belonged together... why keep making his suffer for all the mistakes of the past when he was just trying to protect her. (minus the one incident)
Overall great story! There is one part that is a little difficult to read with unwanted sex but if you can get past that it is definitely worth the read!
