Sugar Baby Beautiful
by J.J. McAvoy
Publication Date: 21 August 2015
When twenty-four-year-old Felicity Harper is dragged to a sugar party, an event where wealthy men and women seek “companionship,” she never expects this one simple decision to drastically change her whole life. Her past is nothing but broken dreams and heartache. Her present is detached and dull. And her future? Well, before meeting Theodore Darcy, the famed film director, writer, producer and CEO of Darcy Entertainment, she would have expected more of the same. Love is just a fantasy and she wants no part of it—even if she can’t deny the undeniable attraction between the two of them. So their arrangement is simple: sex with no strings attracted. But as their intimacy becomes more powerful, so do Felicity’s demons. Can Theo really shoulder her past and his own? And could Felicity even let him?
This book here? Read it. It's that good. It's a wonderful blend of hot smexiness with some twisty mindfuckery that happens along the way.
Felicity and Theodore meet in an unusual way, and Theo can't help but to be more intrigued by Felicity, simply because she has zero interest in his kabillions of dollars, as well as her genuine interest in the arts. She's only at the party because her friend dragged her along.
They do enjoy a whirlwind romance, but when you've got that chemistry from the start, it shouldn't matter if anyone else thinks you're jumping in too soon. Theo is great when it comes to the romantic side, but if you've read a J.J. McAvoy book before, you know to be prepared for whatever will come from your blindside. Because it will happen. And by the time it's over, you might feel like you've survived a ride on the Tilt-A-Whirl. After you've consumed Sake bombs.
Now, for all of how much I enjoyed this book, I do wish we had gotten a bit more character development with Theo, maybe some more of his backstory, especially when it comes to his family. It seems like there's more that should be told, hopefully we'll get another book to get more info about that.
