So I'm a bit torn on this one. When I first read the about blurb I anxious to jump in. I always find stories with a call girl or the many versions of that job type fascinating. I liked Beau immediately. She's trying so hard to make something of herself and when she comes up short with the money to finish college she exhausts every possibility she can think of, being left with only one seemingly viable option. She will become a sugar baby. A year out of her life for enough money to make her dreams a reality. Seems like an easy choice to make when she thinks hard enough about it.
Enter Hendrix, he is bitter, reclusive, rich, handsome and a grade a a-hole. Hendrix is where things get complicated for me. A-hole alpha male leads are certainly not unusual in romance. Heck, 9 times out of 10 I'm all for them. Every once in awhile though, I come across a hero who I know intellectually I am supposed to enjoy and fall for, but it just doesn't happen. I was hard pressed to find a redeeming quality in Hendrix for a big chunk of this book. He was horrible to Beau and I really wanted her to show him the door on numerous occasions. My dislike for him made it difficult to enjoy most of the relationship and even the scenes that should have been hot left me a bit cold. I was hard pressed to see what Beau saw in him. By the end, I was starting to grudgingly enjoy Hendrix to a certain extent, but I never completely warmed up to him.

Hendrix Parker doesn’t date. He isn’t opposed to a one night stand, but other than that, he prefers to be alone. The downfall of this is that he often finds himself in need of a date when he has to attend business functions he can’t get out of. His best friend, Jax, encourages him to remedy this by getting a sugar baby. Actually, “encourages him” is an understatement. He practically badgers him to death to get him to consider it. Jax is a sugar daddy himself, and he assures Hendrix that the mutually beneficial arrangement is exactly what he needs. Hendrix reluctantly agrees to give it a try, and when he sees Beau, he knows he made the right decision.
Beau Carter is the perfect daughter, sister, and friend. She is always there for everyone in her life even to the detriment of her own happiness. Her best friend constantly uses her to cover her shifts at work, her mother expects her to be at her beck and call, and her sister uses her as her own personal nanny. When Beau needs money for college though, the only person she can depend on for help is herself. Her parents are already helping her sister financially to the point where there is no way they would be able to assist her in anyway. She doesn’t have any idea how it’s even possible for her to come up with her tuition waiting tables, and that’s why when a well-meaning women approaches her about being a sugar baby, she actually takes it into consideration. Ultimately, she lets her need for an education outweigh her pride and agrees to meet Hendrix for lunch.
Neither of them were prepared for what happened next. A business arrangement was all it was supposed to be, but after their pants came off, the boundaries of their relationship started to blur. It isn’t long before Beau begins to wonder if the money she is receiving is worth the cost to her heart.
Craving Sugar is a steamy as hell romance with a complicated hero that might test your patience. Hendrix drove me crazy throughout much of the book. I mean, Beau had to have whiplash trying to keep up with his mood swings. I sure did! Don’t get me wrong, he had a reason behind his infuriating behavior, but I struggled with why she would have the feelings she had for him considering the way he treated her. Despite him making me wish I could jump into the book and karate chop him in the head, I did want him to get the girl. I knew he was sabotaging himself, and I just wanted him to stop. I knew once he did, everything would be fine. Because I loathe weak heroines, I was happy with Beau’s evolution and proud that she finally started demanding the respect she deserved from others. If you are looking for a romance with a true alpha, @sshole hero and a healthy dose of smut, look no further! This one’s for you!
A scarred man that doesn’t believe in any rules that aren’t his own, dominant in many ways , a complete control freak .Thinking this is a joke an getting his friend off his back he sees her profile , a man used to getting what he wants he knows how to use manipulations , but at what cost to both of them?
This had all the elements of steamy sex that Elena M Reyes writes so well! Loved the storyline, the plot and OMG the epilogue!!
Tell me you will be my sugar, nymph.
“Kiss me,” I repeated and watched with hunger as Beau watched my lips. Licked her own. “Why?” My head was at war with my head. Do I tell her the truth or a bullsht lie. Again, I looked down and focused on those pouty lips, the words were out of my mouth before I could stop them. “Because I need to taste their sweetness or I’ll go insane.”
Get it the f*** together. She’s here for a paycheck and nothing more. The perfect sugar wh*re.
“I paid you to be my wh*re, not play Susie homemaker . You’ll never be more than the woman I pay to use.”
“Addiction is a terrible thing,” she murmured under her breath before taking my lower lip between her own and biting down on the abused flesh. “You are a terrible thing.”
Beau Carter was a college student that didn’t have not one selfish bone in her body and seemed to put everyone before her. I really felt bad for her with how she was treated but she had a backbone and a bada$$ way to her that would come out when people less expect it. Beau needed money to pay for her tuition when her friend introduced her and signed her up to be a Sugar. She was completely against it but gave in when all her other alternatives failed.
Enter Hendrix who was forced by his best friend to create an account on Sugar to find a date and companionship for an award banquet. Hendrix hated the idea until he saw Beau profile and was immediately intrigued and mesmerized. Something about her pulled at him.
When they met it was terrible, lol. He was not nice at all and she wasn’t putting up with his bs. The first couple of chapters is the back and forth between these two because regardless Beau was a tough cookie to break. She wasn’t having any of his demanding way and that just made him more hot for her. When she caved in the chemistry and electricity between these two was 🔥🔥🔥🔥. They had good moments and bad moments. I wanted to kill Hendrix half of the time because of his poor pissed attitude. Beau tried to put up with his ways until he downright disrespected her and that was the final straw.
I really hated Hendrix when he did that to Beau. With time they both realized that they had fallen in love. Hendrix got his act together and had lots of begging to do. The epilogue put a smile to my face especially the very end which leads me to believe that I’ll see more on these two.
I voluntarily accepted an advanced reader copy of this book.
