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.
Ana is about to discover that's not quite true because a six foot three, hotter than hell, tattooed, biker 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 the 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.

Written well just did not fall in love with storyline
Ana: works at her dad's diner and likes to bake pies. She is nineteen. A guy she dated started a rumor that she is a slut because she would not put out for him. She is close to her younger brother and takes care of him.
Elijah: strolled into town for a summer job at Ana's dad's bike shop. He owns a bike and nice car. He is twenty three. He is in and out of towns trying to escape a horrible past of mistakes. He no longer has a family. He was in jail twice.
The banter is funny. They live in a small town full of gossip. Love the story line using the new sexy biker guy to make an old boyfriend jealous. It helped kick things into high gear since Ana was not going to make a move.
Elijah questions himself after being approached by Ana's father because he is starting to realize she deserves better than him. Apparently her father is privy to his past and does not want Ana involved in his mess. Her dad is overprotected.
The Australian dialogue is fun to read. Even though I tend to find a lot of books lately with this same dialogue. I'm kind of getting used to it.
I had no idea this would lead into a biker story since the story is about a nineteen year old girl and a twenty three year old guy.
Crazy way of expressing ones love by banging her friend against the wall of A bar. What a pathetic excuse of a man. Tired of men using sex as a weapon. They get all possessive when they want to claim a woman then stupid when a woman leaves them and they think the best way to forget them is to sleep with another. Men who think this way are stupid and undeserving of a good woman. There just is no good reason or excuse for that kind of behavior.
I do not like the turn of events the story has taken. If Elijah never rolled into town I would hope to think Ana's life would not have gone to s*** with all of his problems he brought with him.
I'm torn on this one. I don't like to judge, but it was a tough pill to swallow. Hard to read thru the tears for all that was taken from these people. A girl raped-her innocence taken, a girl pregnant-her freedom taken, a guy who did the raping-his life lost, a guy who went to prison because he sacrificed his own freedom to take the blame for others and lost his freedom multiple times.
The story's written in Elijah, Ana, and Holly's POV.
I do not feel I got the closure I needed from this story. I understand people love but feels is not enough some times, but this story leaves me unsettled. It was written well. I just did not fall in love with the story line.
Umm money back pls.
Ok so you shld warn your readers for triggers. Almost rape. Then rape. Seriously? No. Just. No.
This book is horrible and degrading to women. The beginning of the book started out sweet and funny but by the middle you could tell there was no respect for women. Apparently being almost raped and killed and also seeing someone you like killing someone else shouldn't cause nerves and fears and shouldn't take time to get over.
