* REVIEW * - Welcome to Sugartown (Sugartown #1) by Carmen Jenner

Reviewer : Kaylene
Rating : 5 Stars
Welcome to Sugartown is a book that has been on my Kindle some time and for some reason I always put off reading it - not sure why.  So day before yesterday I decided I should read it, especially considering the author will be at the Indie Down Under Author event in Australia in March 2014 and I happen to be attending the event.  I am totally kicking myself for not reading it sooner, it’s awesome and well worth the five stars I am going to give it, actually if I could give more stars I would.
It was one of those books that you just can’t put down and a must read until it is completely digested and finished.   Ana Belle, Miss gorgeous, sweet and virginally innocent meets Elijah Cade, hot, sexy, tattooed bad boy biker and the sparks fly with an undeniable connection.  There are secrets, there is heart break, there is danger, there is heart shattering drama and there is love.   But love sometimes is not enough and they both struggle with their issues all though the book.   Some of it is hard reading, heart breakingly so, but it does have a happy ever after which is always good and no cliff hanger ending.  You will love her kid brother Sam, with his stutter and his absolute cuteness and there is also a bestie who’s a bit nutty and strange but you grow to love her.
This book is awesome and well worth the one click, it will be one of those books that you cannot put down.  Well done Carmen Jenner on a great book with a wonderfully real storyline.
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.
