Octavia Walker had a silver spoon childhood. But when her stockbroker father is convicted of fraud in her senior year of high school, she loses everything. Ten years later, she’s slowly building her pet-care business and trying to save up money so her brilliant younger sister can go to college. It’s just not enough, forcing Octavia to seek out an unconventional arrangement on a website matching sugar daddies with sugar babies.
Her first date with a sugar daddy goes terribly wrong, and the handsome man who comes to her rescue is the ex who ghosted her after her father’s conviction. Dominic Delmarco asks Octavia to be his sugar baby instead, and though she’d prefer to give him a swift kick where it hurts rather than take his money, she says yes.
It should be cut and dried. It’s not. She never knew exactly why Dominic left, and now she can’t ask. They’re falling in love with one another all over again, blurring the lines of their arrangement. Being Dominic’s sugar baby isn’t as easy as Octavia thought it would be . . . for either of them. Sugar is a 55K novel of love and lust, betrayal and second chances.
