In the sizzling romance, Sugar by Ugod, a small-time girl with big hopes and big dreams, who has always desired love with a healthy romance, a woman married to an ex-military, gorgeous and caring man, finds herself in an adventure that makes her take a stripper as a lover. She reminds the reader that she’s always wanted a romantic dream, one she can control. It is not long before her stripper lover, Angel, introduces her to Chad, a pimp with a strong inclination for dominance. While the sexual adventures inebriate her with pleasure, she experiences the pressure of leading a double life. Crisis sets in when Chad threatens to expose her double life to her family. Can she find the courage to break away or will she be controlled by blackmail?
Sugar is a beautifully written novel — breezy and sensually exciting — a narrative with mature content and deep emotional insights. The reader understands what the idle words of a mother can do to a child. When she was young, the protagonist’s mother had told her that real happiness was an illusion, not knowing that those words would sink in, make her daughter’s heart restless, and set her on a path she could never have imagined. The question is: Can one have enough of sex? The writing is beautiful, tight, and focused, and readers will enjoy the apt descriptions of scenes and how the author captures the emotional and psychological tensions in the narrative. Fast-paced, exhilarating, and sizzling, this narrative will arouse emotions in readers that they never thought they had.
