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 have been in a perpetual state of book zombie-ness, It all started with Sugar's Twice as Sweet and continued with the two books I read after it. Sleeeep! I just want sleep!

Sugar's Twice as Sweet is the perfect title for this little gem. Everything about this book was too freaking adorable. From the lovable characters to the small town craziness, I loved it all. I swooned over Brett and bonded with Joie. Brett's single goal for the book is to get Joie to go out with him. He knows that there is something deep between them and he wants nothing more than to explore it. Joie is understandably gun shy after exposing herself in front of her fiance...and his other woman. She runs to the home her beloved aunt left her with plans to turn it into a successful Inn and spa. Once she arrives in Sugar, Georgia, she is faced with crazy old ladies and Brett, both are distractions she can't afford. Brett was amazing. He feels as if he's been waiting for her ever since he rescued her when they were kids. Its almost as if he's destined to support Joie, but as usual, he goes about things the wrong way. Lucky for Brett, he can grovel like it is nobody's business. Joie, on the other hand, just needs to believe in herself. She may be a little flighty, but she's also a strong woman once she sets her mind on a goal. The poor girl just can't shake the old biddies that are driving her up a wall and down the banister.

Holy smokes! Sugar's Twice as Sweet was my first Marina Adair book and it certainly will not be my last. I love her writing! The dialog had me in stitches. The chemistry between Brett and Joie was sweet and sexy. And can I just say...if a certain mechanic and a hunky sheriff do not get paired off.... It'll be on, Marina! Ahem, sorry. I got carried away. Anyway, I adore small town romances and I can't wait to visit Sugar again in the next book. Is it here yet?
