REVIEW: Welcome to Sugartown by Carmen Jenner

Book Title: Welcome to Sugartown
Author: Carmen Jenner
Genre: Contemporary New Adult


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.

Welcome to Sugartown.

-           Content Warning. Intended for a mature 18+ audience. Contains explicit sex, violence, oodles of profanity and a crap-tonne of AWKWARD.



This debut novel by Carmen certainly made me want to pack up my bags and move to Sugartown! The Book Trailer certainly set the scene for what to expect from the book. The story certainly didn't disappoint.

We are met with Ana Belle, the beautiful, sweet, caring small town girl, sacrificing her life to help her brother and dad after losing her mother. Even though she would love to get out of town she wouldn't give up her family or the town Pie Shop in honor of her mum.
Next... Meet Elijah, the new Hot Badass Biker looking for a small town to lay low from his past. Setting into town, he takes up a new job at Ana's dad mechanic shop.

From when they first met, the connection they both have for one another couldn't go unnoticed, however Ana certainly didn't make things easy for Elijah.
 With his badass ways to his sassy mouth, he definitely is my new book boyfriend for sure.

"You came strutting in here all cocky, with your dimples and your tattoos and your big brown eyes and expected us to swoon." ~Ana Bella
"Baby girl, if that's all it takes to make you swoon then you just wait 'til you see what i do with my hands." ~ Elijah

Loved Holly, Ana's best friend who had one sassy mouth that never held back but also showed beautiful support she as a true friend.
"You sneaky little slutsky! You totally made him a pie! ~ Holly
"I did not make him a pie" ~ Ana Bella
"Oh Elijah, won't you try my pie? I made it just for you,"
"Whats that, you wanna stick your fingers in my delicious silky, warm pie?"~ Holly 

Overall, The story was off the Charts! from the hot sex scenes to the unexpected twists that you cannot expect. The humorous highs to sad lows this book certainly left me on the edge of my seat wanting more.
It didn't disappoint with a beautiful romance with a badass biker, crime edge to it....I LOVED IT!
The new Badboy in town meet the small town Beauty.....
WELCOME TO SUGARTOWN, Enjoy your stay!

I look forward to the next two installments from her Sugartown Series:
