Book provided by author in exchange for an honest review.

This book had me captivated from the moment I opened it. I loved how this story touched on 3 women's lives from different backgrounds and brought them together as friends and as pawns in a game of life and death.

I was surprised at how fast I got caught up in the story and was rooting for

WOW! Let me begin by a quote at the very end of Mickey Corrigan's full length novel:

"I know my wife. She will read this manuscript at once, pouring over it as you have. She will complete it in one sitting. Like you, she will not be able to put it down. "

This quote sums up my exact experience with Sugar Babies! An intensely dramatic, and sizzling story about three girls with dreams and the men who help make them into who they become!

Wow! I could not put it down, I would have read it in one sitt

Maire, Esme and Niki are three contemporary young women who want what every woman wants: love, work, safe shelter, a diamond-studded Rolex and a two-bedroom condo with an ocean view. One of these three women becomes lost, another faces desperate odds, while the third falls in love with the wrong man. Over and over again.

Maire O’Rourke is too hot to handle herself properly. She tends to wear too tight clothes and too much make-up, but she’s got more than sex on her mind. She’

OMG!! what a book! Sucked me right in from the first page and never let me go! This is my second book by Mickey and let me tell you, this one blew me away! I had no idea where Mickey was going with this story. I knew it was about three women who were professional girlfriends but that was about it. Maire starts a company called Arranged Relations for women who are having trouble financially meeting their needs. They get to become professional girlfriends to the rich, famous, and older men.

We all know is life is hard, and yes sometimes you need to do what you would never do under normal circumstances but when you have no choice and it comes down to survival you close your eyes and get going.

But some people don't care what they do at all, they would do anything and everything to get what they want. In this read from Mickey J.Corrigan she explores the side of woman who are pretty desperate and dead set on getting the fancy cars, jewels and shopping sessions they crave so yes, not r

Every once in a while, we need a reminder that not all stories in books have happy endings; Sugar Babies is such a reminder. It's intriguing, captivating and beautifully grim. It kept me on my toes and made me read non-stop until I reached the very last page.

The beginning of the book was really intriguing. It easily got me hooked and interested from the onset. It also helps that the intro of the book has a sort of mystery-suspense vibe to it. In no tim

It's been a while since I've read a story that is not a romance or non-fiction...and this book transported me back to those edge-of-your-seat reads I dug into in the past, especially the ones from the likes of Sidney Sheldon. There was a definite Sheldon vibe to this tale - in the 'naked' portrayal of these characters, in the desperation interlaced into their characterization, in the spiral-downward trend they all took.... Would redemption be waiting down that slide? How would they each end up? ...more

In Mickey J. Corrigan’s latest book it starts off with the following:

Three women. I broke one’s spirit, I broke another’s neck, and I married the third.
And I have to admit this reader was hooked from that point on. This book has a little bit of everything. From broken hearts, broken spirits, and a broken neck, along with more of a -who is it -behind these girls lives that impacted them in such a way.

Sugar Babies is a great read for all those who love a good story with lots of drama and angst. The cover fits the description of the book to a T. This is a unique story about three girls who want a better life than they have and are willing to do whatever it takes to get that money and life style. I personally know a few sugar babies and I have to say the book got it right about their life style and their behaviors. So much so I found myself cracking up like a hyena.

There's something catchy yet amiss for me in this read. I'm inlove with this kind of theme yet it left me wanting more. Maybe it's just me...

“Welcome to the sugar world. The secret world of professional girlfriends.”

I took on this book because I am one that likes to shake up my reading world. I get bored or in funks and I like to step out of comfort zone. I am not going to lie I was scared when I first started the book thinking what the hell have I agreed to. But I have to say I am glad I read it. This is a true glimpse into the Sugar world.

“You really can't go home again, not if the place ate you alive”

Let me just start by saying that this is a great little novella.

Set in what I see as a southern Florida type of town, the story follows Maire, Esme and Niki in their search for a sugar daddy. Each has different motivation for their quest for a seemingly easy bank roll. Student loans, trying to make another man happy and fund his dreams, finding a means to start a new life. Whatever the reason, it surely is not as great as it se

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

When I read the blurb sent to me several months ago, I was excited to read this book. It sounded like it had a lot going for it. I can normally read a book like this in under a week, sometimes a single day depending on how long I can spend reading each setting. This one took much longer.

The author has a great style of writing. It is concise without loosing descriptiveness. The dialog is realistic and characters are fairly well

Sometimes all we need is something different. Sugar Babies is one of them. The book commences with a mysterious note which is incomplete. Then the story commences about the 3 characters of the book starting with an account for each one’s hard life and how they try to work out to overcome them. It is a story from the darker parts of their lives which is hidden from the plain view by their sparkling outer core of their lives.

The work is about how one decision or one person can change your life.

This is the story of three young women who are in need of help. They all need money.

Maire has landed one of the richest men in Coconut City, her sugar daddy. She also runs an escort service for older men to meet younger women.

Esme has moved to Coconut City to make enough money to help her hometown boyfriend purchase the bar he had always wanted.

Niki is a college student who needs help to make ends meet and pay off her student loans.

My typical style of reviewing isn't going to work for this book period and variety of reasons as well. Everyone knows what sugar daddy is but do you know what sugar baby is. I didn't until I read this book and quite frankly puzzled as to why anyone male or female would do this. Being a professional girlfriend is often times equated to being escort or latest arm candy. The three women portrayed at times could be clueless and vapid in appearance. I felt more sorry for them because they considered ...more

I have to admit that from reading the blurb, I was not sure this was the kind of book I would enjoy. But, I was asked to read the book as a favor and---boy, am I ever glad I did.

This story is a story of three women and a man, but the man is a shadowy figure. He opens the book with a page from his diary and the first paragraph grabbed me and didn't let go: Three women. I broke one's spirit. I broke another's neck, and I married the third.

This is a gritty, no-holds-barred look at a life that might appear glamorous to some looking in, but has its share of darkness-- the life of wealthy men and the "professional girlfriends" or "sugar babies" that keep them company, in exchange for being taken care of.

Sugar Babies focuses on three of these women and what happens to them. Maire recruits young women for her company--the company that her own sugar daddy is covering the bills for-- a company designed to hook young women (and men) up wi

Sugar Babies is a compelling look into the hard truths behind the lives of three very different girls who unwittingly became mistresses to wealthy men in the fictional Coconut City. It was interesting to see how these girls fell into the so-called life of being a sugar baby and the way the book is written from a guy point of view who became involved with all of the girls adds a certain mystery to the whole story.

Don´t know what I expected from the blurb but it wasn´t this.
Cynical, gritty and you get the feeling the author doesn´t like young women.
Even before the first chapter he states that "they´re nothing but flesh dummies, sex dolls you can blow up and fuck." or "This is the main problem with young women these days. They are spiritually, morally, and psychologically weak. Women are, in general, weak creatures. So they are nothing without men. And they know this" ?! This had me cringing and doing si
