[Review] Welcome to Sugartown by Carmen Jenner

Synopsis: 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.

Teaser Tuesday #20 | First Paragraph Tuesday Intros #8 +11th Game

I decided to combine the Teaser Tuesday, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading, with the First Chapter ~ First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea.

I know, I know, I’m a little late today, but I had to work, so forgive me. 😉

I originally intended to feature Shield of Winter by Nalini Singh, because the paperpack version got out today and I expected the kindle price to drop. But no, that did not happen, so no Shield of Winter and I won’t buy it for 7€ (insane!). In the beginning it cost 14€, which was even more insane!!

So now I’m going to feature Welcome To Sugartown by Carmen Jenner , which was for free on amazon and still is (?). I liked the synopsis even though I normally give new adult novels a wiiiiiide berth 😉

Opening paragraph:

There’s amind-numbing restlessness that comes with living in small towns. The gossip, the people, and the unending monotony that makes you want to poke your eyes out with a fork. I’ve lived my whole life in Sugartown, so I should probably expect nothing to change, and each new day to be just as dull as the last. And yet, every day I wish for the unexpected. I wish for big cities, for open-mindedness, for the ability to jump on my bike and ride the hell out of town and never look back.

Teaser from 6%:

I look at the clock one more. You know? Just in case someone miraculously invented a time machine and I find myself somewhere back in time before three am.

Would you continue to read it?
