Sugar Rush

Book Description: Dulcie Carter has been running her family’s homemade sweet shop, Candy Land Confections, on her own since her mom passed away. But business is slow and rent is high, so Dulcie knows if she wants to keep her mom’s dream alive, she’ll need a miracle. The annual Assembly of Chocolatiers competition might be just the thing, if she can bring herself to try creating something new for the first time in a long time.

Then she meets Nick, a molten-hot guy with a sexy smirk and an attraction stronger than any sugar rush, whose family also happens to own the big-box candy shop in town—her strongest competition for first prize. Nick’s got his own reasons for needing the win, but then being around Dulcie is proving addictive.

As their competition heats up, so do the sparks between them. Can they keep their sights on winning, when love might be the sweetest prize of all?

My Review: I cannot resist any book that takes place in a candy shop or bakery and has anything to do with sweets. This fun little title from Entangled Publishing's Bliss line is guaranteed to send readers into a case of sugar shock! The star-crossed Dulcie and Nick are a couple to root for, and they are depicted so realistically they ended up feeling like friends as I got to know them better. Snuggle up with a cupcake or box of chocolates and get ready to be sucked into a warm and fuzzy read that will leave you sighing by the end. This is a read for the romantic in us all.

FTC Full Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher with the request for a review.
