He's trouble she doesn't need . . .
Thanks to a cheating fiancé, Josephina Harrington's perfect life just crashed and burned. Moving in with her overbearing parents is definitely not an option. No, she needs to prove she can make it on her own. And she will-by turning her great-aunt's old plantation house into a destination getaway. She's just not expecting her contractor to be so hands-on-and so totally irresistible.
. . . but everything she wants
Bad-boy golf champion Brett McGraw figured his hometown of Sugar, Georgia was the perfect place to lay low and get his life back up to par. The leggy blonde with a pint-sized pup is the kind of sweet 'n sassy trouble he never saw coming. She doesn't know a nut from a bolt and before long, he's renovating her house . . . as she steals his heart. Can he convince Josephina that his womanizing ways are in the past and he's ready for forever?
I'm a big fan of sports romances, so I was interested in a headstrong golfer sent home to cool off and hide out following an Internet scandal. That Brett and Josephina knew each other as kids was a neat connection too. Unfortunately, Sugar's Twice as Sweet started strong, but the story seemed to go on and on.
Exactly how many bad things can happen to Joie in her quest to make her great-aunt's home a B&B? (Hint: a LOT!) The elderly ladies had a weak excuse to make Joie's life in Sugar, Georgia miserable, and the fact that Brett's grandmother was one of those causing havoc put him squarely in the middle between family and a possible romance. Not very sweet, Granny!
Sugar on Top (April 2015) features Glory and Cal, both introduced here. I may decide to pay another visit to Sugar, Georgia to see if life there is any sweeter for a homegrown couple.
(A very special thank you to Forever Romance, Grand Central Publishing, and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of Sugar's Twice as Sweet.)
