Tour~ Review, Excerpt and (2) Giveaways ~ Sugar's Twice as Sweet by Marina Adair

I am super excited to be part of the Sugar's Twice as Sweet Tour. Marina's books center around small towns in middle America where everyone know everyone. Her writing style is similar to Jill Shalvis, Robyn Carr,  and Catherine Bybee. Marina writes with passion, but not the same old same old that you find over and over again, she comes up with scenes that are original, funny, sexy, and above all, romantic. 

Marina is hosting this fabulous giveaway featuring Amazon & B&N gift cards. And, in addition to this, I have an extra SUGAR'S TWICE AS SWEET to give away on Forever Book Lover (US/Canada only). Marina has even agreed to sign it!   See below for details...

He's trouble she doesn't need . . .
Thanks to a cheating fiancé, Josephina Harrington's perfect life just crashed and burned. Moving in with her overbearing parents is definitely not an option. No, she needs to prove she can make it on her own. And she will-by turning her great-aunt's old plantation house into a destination getaway. She's just not expecting her contractor to be so hands-on-and so totally irresistible.

. . . but everything she wants
Bad-boy golf champion Brett McGraw figured his hometown of Sugar, Georgia was the perfect place to lay low and get his life back up to par. The leggy blonde with a pint-sized pup is the kind of sweet 'n sassy trouble he never saw coming. She doesn't know a nut from a bolt and before long, he's renovating her house . . . as she steals his heart. Can he convince Josephina that his womanizing ways are in the past and he's ready for forever?
I am a huge fan of Marina's, it started with her first book, Tucker's Crossing. As she introduced her Helena Vineyard Series, I knew I was hooked. She has a simple writing style. All her books are set in a small town, everyone knowing everyone. Some characters have old history with each other, some are running away from their past and then there are some who are just fun and lovable. I found all of that and more in Sugar's Twice as Sweet. It also wouldn't be a Marina Adair book unless there's some fun loving grannies that take center stage now and then.

Sugar's Twice as Sweet, is the first in the Sugar, Georgia series. This book introduces us to some great characters, all willing to do whatever it takes for one another. Well, unless your the "welcoming committee" (grannies from hell) who will do anything to drive you out of town. LOL. 

There's times of sadness, self- discovery, laugh my *** off times and moments of triumph.  From the first page to the last, I was captivated and wouldn't put the book down.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to curl up with a good read and well-rounded characters. I can't wait to see what's in store for Cal who Spenser, Charlotte and Glory.

heat passed through her eyes that told him she liked his touching her, liked being with him. Determined to find out just how much she liked his hands on her, he tightened his grip on her hip, shifting closer until they brushed up against each other. He dipped his head, just enough to let her know his intent.

Her breath caught and suddenly their mouths were only a fraction apart. Their gazes held, neither talking, just sharing breath.

“Brett,” she whispered again, her voice a little thick. “We shouldn’t. I just got out of a relationship and you, well, it’s weird that I don’t even know you but I’ve seen your tattoo and…”
Brett smiled. So she had seen the video. Paid close enough attention to notice his tattoo, which meant she was staring in the vicinity of his ass. He didn’t know if that was a good thing or not. But her dilated eyes and shallow breathing were.
It was the damnedest thing, they were barely touching and yet he was reacting as if they were naked and pressed against each other. Maybe this was what he needed, one night to get her out of his system, then he could forget about this crazy attraction and go back to lying low.

Just one night.

He lowered his head and she went up on her toes. Her eyes fluttered shut. He wasn’t sure who started it, but suddenly they were kissing, her arms on his chest, his in her hair. Their lips brushed once, and then some more. Tender little kisses that made his chest tight and his jeans even tighter.

She gave a small purr of approval that was pretty much his undoing. She didn’t grab or demand, instead cuddling into him all soft and vulnerable. So damn vulnerable. With another sexy sigh she pulled back, just enough so that they weren’t kissing but were sharing breath, staring into each other’s eyes. Hers were huge and unguarded, showing him every damn thing she was feeling.

Brett tensed, waiting—hoping like hell—for her to push him away. End this and give him an easy out.

Too bad nothing about her was easy. She wrapped her arms around his middle, pulling him close enough to bury her head in his chest, and her whole body melted into his. That one move changed the game.

He stood there, stock-still, his hands at his side. His brain raced, trying to figure out what she needed from him. Apparently, it was a hug, because when he wrapped his arms around her, she let go a warm sigh that went all the way to his heart. She held on to him as if she were afraid there was somewhere else he’d rather be. Which should have terrified him, because there wasn’t. He could stand there all night and just hold her, listen to this soft little sounds of hers, which turned him on almost as much as her mouth.

A sure sign that was he was in trouble.

A lot of trouble.
