While my trip back to Sugartown was HOT and extremely hilarious it was also hit with a whole LOT OF DRAMA.
Holly Harris, the snarky tell you like she means it with a one two punch red head that readers first fell in love with in Welcome to Sugartown is back annnnnd she’s pregnant. Being nineteen and pregnant is scary enough, throw in the fact that the guy who impregnated you is nowhere in sight and that fear triples. Faced with having to put on her big girl knickers Holly decides that she will raise her child on her own with the help of her close friends who coincidentally are also her housemates.
Doubt she knew that her pregnancy hormones would have her ready to jump one housemate in particular just about every time he enters a room. The sexy and delicious town whore better known as Jackson Rowe.
“Sweetheart, right now you could be pregnant with the Dalai Lama’s baby, and I wouldn’t give two fucks.” - Jack
Jackson Rowe is back in Sugartown and he is screwing his way through the small town. LITERALLY, the guy can’t keep it in his pants. Jack has always had a hard on for Holly(pun intended) and her carrying another man’s child has not changed his desires to hit that. Jack feels like he has a claim on Holly. On this I would have to agree. As the flames between these two grow to an intense burn it becomes clear that she agrees too.
In spite of all that undeniable attraction neither Holly nor Jack seem to be able to get on the right track long enough to become in sync, deciding to instead tuck their feelings away for good times and sex play.
‘This is how we play safe; by teasing and rejecting one another until we can forget about the feelings between us.’ -Holly
As these two fall in to a comfortable just sex no strings attached relationship their roommates question it. Besides, let’s be honest how long before the strings do attach only to form a big ass tangled knot.
Round and around and around these two had me on a lust filled spin cycle.
I swear to you I am not over exaggerating there is a good deal of sex NOT that I necessarily mind the sex… *GRINS* I like my steam
What I don’t like is all the back and forth. The whole I want you – I want you too – but – but? - I don’t think I can handle this – I need you – I need you too – WAIT, STOP – NO, you want this – JUST TAKE ME NOW – I need this, I need you - I take it back, we can’t be together – I know, you’re right – I need to be inside you – I want you inside me – Wait, we can’t keep doing this – But, I thought you said you loved me? GAH it drove me INSANE.
Now toss in his ex-fiancé and her baby daddy and the drama snowballs into a freaking avalanche. This is coming from someone who actually enjoys a good dose of drama in her reads soooo…like I said a good dose not an over dose.

This book would have worked a bit better for me personally if
On the bright side Carmen Jenner has a sassy entertaining writing style. I have no doubt that her characters will truly humor you with their witty banter.
Do I plan to continue with the series? Yes, I do
Characters- Likeable and horny with foul mouths

Steam Factor- HIGH/Very Steamy on a scale of 1-10 I say 9

Overall- I liked it, I just didn’t love it as much as the first book in the series
