Gimme Some Sugar (Sex & Sweet Tea, Book #5)
Release Date: June 11, 2019
Larkin Mancinkus prides herself on making the town of Whynot, North Carolina just a little sweeter. As owner of Sweet Cakes Bakery, Larkin gets all the town gossip – the sugar, the spice, and the everything not so nice. So when she finds herself on the tip of everyone’s tongue thanks to an encounter with a mysterious and handsome stranger, she learns the true meaning of ‘if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.’
Deacon Locke has spent his life traveling the world with no particular destination in mind. But when he rolls into Whynot on his Harley, he just knows there is something different about this town. What he doesn’t know is that out of all the places he’s traveled and all the people he’s met, the gorgeous bakery owner might just entice him to put down some solid roots.
Come on down to see what’s cookin’ between Larkin and Deacon!
This is the next standalone book in the Sex and Sweet Tea series. It is a complete standalone with interconnected characters. I’ve only read one other book in this series, and I did not feel like I was missing out on anything. This is a sweet, clean, fade-to-black story. Normally I don’t read those types of books, but I LOVE this author’s steamier books. If you think you’ll miss something, trust me…you won’t. This story and these characters will charm and captivate you so much that you won’t even realize the heat level is only at a simmer.
I love Deacon…everything about this character appeals to me. He’s sweet, sexy, protective, and flawed. He’s a big biker dude with a heart of gold. Larkin is shy and insecure, but with the attention of Deacon, she just blossoms. Not only are these two amazing characters, but all the secondary characters are intriguing. You will feel right at home in the small town of Whynot. If you want a fun, feel-good book then definitely get this book.
** All books in the Sex & Sweet Tea series can be read as standalones, but if you’d like to start at the beginning, Ain’t He Precious? (Sex & Sweet Tea, Book #1) is #FREE for a limited time! **

When Juliette isn’t delivering the sweetest kind of romance, she’s teaching her southern belle daughter the fine art of fishing, the importance of wearing Chucks, and the endless possibilities of a vivid imagination.
