Sugar Beth Carey’s come back to Parrish, Mississippi, and she’s brought her reputation for wreaking havoc with her. She’s broke, desperate, and too proud to show it, even with her old enemies lining up for a chance to get even. Her former girlfriends have their eyebrow pencils sharpened into lethal points. Winnie Davis, her longtime rival, is fully armed with the money, power, and prestige that had once been Sugar Beth’s. But worst of all is Colin Byrne, the man whose career Sugar Beth had destroyed — and not exactly accidentally.
Now Colin’s a famous novelist living in Sugar Beth’s old mansion, and this modern day dark prince is using his writer’s imagination to figure out how to bring the town’s beautiful former princess to her knees. But despite her sassy mouth, feisty spirit, and hardheaded ways, Sugar Beth’s no longer the spoiled rich girl they all remember. No, now she’s a woman to be reckoned with … and a great big reckonin’ is about to happen, not least of all for one dark prince who might — just might — be thinking about falling in love with the wickedest girl in town.
Ain’t She Sweet? A funny, heartwarming, oh-so-spicy story of love, friendship, and the possibility of happily-ever-after.
The Bookish Brunette thought:
I absolutely adore Susan Elizabeth Phillips, she is one of my favorite authors ever! Okay, just had to say that first! Now, on with the review of one of my favorite books in the entire world…
Sugar Beth? Did I read that right? Sure did! How amazing is that name? When I saw this book I had gotten no further than the first sentence of the synopsis and I had already decided to buy it, I knew that with the leading character named Sugar Beth I would love this book.
Ain’t She Sweet is one of those books that you finish, and instantly want to reread. This book has betrayal, lies, love, sex and everything in between. The total package okay?
You absolutely want to hate Sugar Beth, but you can’t. Everyone makes mistakes and SB made more than her fair share! Trying to overcome her reputation as a ‘mean girl’ in the town she grew up in… Where her illegitimate half sister is now married to her high school sweetheart… She ends up housekeeping for her High School English teacher… The same guy she had rode out of town on a red hot rail…
I find myself not even being able to describe how immensely great this book is, because all the words I put together don’t do it justice. In short- JUST READ THIS BOOK. <3
