Book #128 Sugar Time





5 out of 5


Product Description

What if you got one last chance at both love and success but getting one meant giving up the other? Sugar Kane hasn't created a hit TV series in years but now she's older, wiser, and ready to prove she can still deliver - unless her young, scheming assistant doesn't steal her new show out from under her. Then Sugar faces a crisis that threatens her career, her health, and the unconditional love she's finally found, long after she stopped hoping she ever would. "A wise, funny novel about sex, love, money, family and friendship whose lusty, compelling heroine every woman over 50 will love and relate to as much as I did" Pepper Schwartz, author, "Prime: Adventures & Advice on Love, Sex and the Sensual Years" "This juicy, irreverent novel reclaims sex, romance and intimacy for women who are old enough to know that taking is as precious as giving." Suzanne Levine, author, "Fifty is the New Fifty"

This is one of those books that I started to read as soon as I got it home and didn't stop until I was finished. I absolutely love Chick Lit but I find myself becoming bored with what is offered. Maybe it is because I am not in my thirties any more -- heck, I am almost out of my forties now, so after reading the description of this book I knew I had to read it. It is so wonderful that authors are writing stories about "older" women.
The one liners in this book are worth the price of admission. There are no wasted words as well which get the point across without being bombarded with a thousand details that don't add to the story. All of the characters have life and you truly wouldn't mind having them as a friend.
I also wouldn't mind a sequel to this one as well....just to make sure everyone does live happily ever after. I highly recommend this one!

  1. This is a book I wouldn't have picked up on my own because I would have judged it by the cover. It's actually sounds like the kind of book I enjoy and your positive review adds to my desire to read it now.
