Uninhibited passion is all she needs to turn her life around…
Siobhan “Sugar” Malloy, co-owner of Sugar and Spice Café and part-time burlesque dancer, believes that love is for the young and foolish—and at thirty-five years old, she is neither.
But a new business venture with the sexy twenty-something owner of Crimson Bay Couriers is quickly changing her mind. Charlie O’Halloran is beyond charming—and his flirtatious manner is an unexpected breath of fresh air for Siobhan. Soon an explosively steamy affair begins, and Siobhan discovers that she loves making up for lost time.
When Charlie comes clean and admits he wants a relationship, Siobhan is struck with memories of the troubled past she is desperate to forget. But when her estranged daughter makes a surprise appearance, Siobhan must choose between the family she left behind and the new life—and new love—she’s always wanted…
The book just starts off plain HOT! Charlie knows what he wants as is going after it. He wants Siobhan. Once he's able to set his plan in motion he does, and that's by giving her a business proposition but he doesn't stop there. He makes is very clear what his intentions are outside of the business he wants to help her with.
There are so many facets to these characters. Siobhan is a small business owner/burlesque performer. She has been through some hardships in her past and is throwing most of her energy into those two things, until Charlie comes into the picture. Charlie is also a business owner with a very good head on his shoulders. He sees Siobhan and wants to get her into his bed, and he succeeds. It's starts off casual and becomes something much more, the only problem is that they are both keeping secrets. It just seems like one blow after another for these two, but they're both survivors and I loved seeing them come out victors.
There is so much sexiness in this book I just can't even! Charlie and Siobhan have this intense, earth shattering chemistry. Charlie is so sweet and tender with Siobhan while showing his unending support and it made me teary eyed. I also love all of the other characters! All of Siobhan's girlfriends were such a tight knit group.
There were many twists and turns, combined with the hot and heavy sexy time, and the loving characters made this a perfect read!
