Title: Sugar
Author: Mandi Beck

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: September 7, 2017


Country’s hottest bad boy.

That’s what they call me. My label ate it up
until I became “too bad” for the good folks of country music. That’s when Hard
Candy Records picked me up and took a chance on me. Probably not their smartest
move, but I won’t tell them that. Especially when they’ve assigned me a
babysitter to try and keep my ass out of trouble. One smart-mouthed,
unimpressed, sexy as homegrown sin, Addy Mae Masterson.

She likes to pretend that she doesn’t like me
and I like to let her.

I may have a past that haunts me and she may
have a habit of getting attached, but damn if I don’t want to show her just how
good this bad boy can be.

Sugar was an ok read for me. I love "bad boy" reads. But this one started me off on the wrong foot with the male lead, Beau, the country music star with a women who wasn't the romantic interest he ends up with. Call me a romantic at heart, but I am not a fan of the characters sleeping with other people. Especially so early on in the book. It left a bad taste in my mouth from that point forward. I get people aren't celibate, but I don't have to read it. It can be inferred and still have the same effect for me.

Beau is a bad boy who is dropped from his label. He needs to get his life back on track or his professional career will be over before it got to where he wants to be. Enter Addy. She is going to help get back him on the right path. She is a saint when it comes to Beau.

This was an ok read for me. I was excited to see the Expose series was more than another book I read.
