Danielle from Short and Sassy
3.5 stars

Cute short story about Danielle who is having a mid life crisis about turning 30. Let's be honest, most of us have been there. Danielle is not where she thought she would be at 30. She is happy with her career, but her lack of social life is bumming her out.

Just when all hope is lost, she literally runs into Connor who makers her feel things she hasn't felt in well... forever. Now she has thrown caution to the wind to see where this new relationship takes her.

Connor seems to be just w

A short story that I wished didn't end. Sugar had me from the very first page. I loved meeting Dani the responsible, and in control of her life to the tee woman. I could identify with her fears of getting older, and taking stock of what she's missed out on as she's made a career for herself. When she meets Conner, who seems to be her total opposite, she surprises herself by how attracted she is to a man she ran into for a brief moment. He made quite the impression, but he's nothing like the men ...more

This is the second short story in this series and much like the first I enjoyed that it was a quick, easy sweet read but just wish that it was a little longer. I'd love to read more about Conner and Dani as their relationship progressed. That being said, if you're in the mood for a short, fun read in between full novels this book fits the bill.

*I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review

Sugar is the definition of short but sweet. This won't give readers that heart-gripping pain some romance novels with deep-rooted issues offer, but this will put a smile on your face and make you sigh and giggle a few times.

The main characters, Danielle or Dani and Connor, are both very entertaining and amusing. They're complete opposites yet complement each other a ton, and their chemistry is explosive. Danielle has a very colourful train of thought, which we all have access to because Sugar is

Thirty. The Big Three-Oh. Over the hill.

Once upon a time, thirty was a really big deal for a woman. I used to hear how women dreaded it, how they didn't want to get old, how thirty meant they were past their prime.

I'm thirty-four. Thirty, honestly, wasn't a big deal to me. It was another number, another tally mark symbolizing how long I've been on this planet.

Dani, thankfully, learned that lesson by the end of this story. Her outlook doesn't start out all positive and sunshine and rose gardens.

Sugar was a cute fun read about Danielle, who is realizing that her life isn’t quite what she expected it to be at 30 years old. I absolutely loved Danielle, she was easy to relate to. Most people can relate to the fear of turning thirty, I think that is part of the appeal to the story. There was passion and humor. Sugar was a great read, and I can’t wait to see what we get in the next short in this series.

I love Ms. Thomas's short stories. They are so down-to-earth, and this one had a lot of humor. I loved the protagonist's witty internal dialogue.
