Ever since Toben told me to make my first birthday wish, I always wish for the same thing: for us to run away to a beautiful place where they won't ever find us or hurt us again. He's the only person in the world who loves me. I love him too. He's says we're the same, that we're halfpeople. He tries to protect me from the monster. The monster does't love us, but Tob

I’ve honestly never felt the feelings I felt while reading this book. I have never, ever been so emotionally invested in a series! Before I even got halfway through this book, I was already dreaded reaching the final words! The depth of feelings this book and the entire SWEET TREATS series evoked in me is kind of scary but the fact that so much emotion ran through me is also insanely impressive and awe-inspiring! If you’ve read any of these books, you probably know what I mean…

There is a warning on this book for a reason. If you are sensitive to any triggers please hear this as another warning before you even open this book!
That being said, welcome to the dark and twisted life of Tavin and Toben. This story does contain love but it is in no way a romance.

I read books 1 & 2 and I’m still blown away. Cupcakes and Crooked Spoons starts when Tavin and Toben are young and walks you through their very traumatic life. (Again, this book is not for the faint of heart!) Th

What an amazing conclusion to the series by Charity B! I will start this review by stressing that you should take the trigger warnings on this one seriously. Even being a lover of everything dark, this book took my breath away and I had to stop reading and clear my head a couple of times.
In this book, Charity B. takes us to the beginning and we get to see how the story of Tavin, Toben and Logan came to be. This story is heartbreaking and poignant, and I am still processing all the feelings it e

Omg this book is the darkest of the 3 books.I loved every minute of knowing where Tavin and Toben come from. I want to kill Logan from the very beginning. love this series. This book is the perfect end to the series. It helps you to understand why Tavin is the way she is. I can understand her more after reading this book. I would recommend this whole series to anyone who wants a dark read. on a personal level I can relate to some of the things in the book.

Cupcakes and Crooked Spoons is excruciatingly dark but shows that the light of the human spirit and a pure heart can never truly be broken. It’s a heavy and tragic read but definitely worth it. Charity B. beautifully weaves this tale to unravel through a message of hope and unconditional love. Beyond all the darkness, it’s this unwavering bright star of hope, love and friendship that drives the story. As we follow the lives of Tavin and Toben, and the horrors they must endure from children into ...more

This book was amazingly written but was very difficult to read. Although this is a prequel to Candy Coated Chaos and Sweetened Suffering it is perfectly placed as the third book. You will definitely get more insight into what Tavin and Toben went through up to and through the first two books.

Keep in mind, however, if you have difficulty with extensive physical and mental child abuse and drug addiction, you may want to heed all the trigger warnings. This book broke my heart into millions of piece

This book has honestly left me speechless. Let me start by saying that the trigger warnings need to be taken seriously with this book. It is very dark at times & the child abuse in intense. However Charity B. did an amazing job of written my about this horrifying subject in what can only be described as an elegant & heartbreaking way. The story will make you cry while taking your breath away.
I have never read a series that waits until the last book to go back to the beginning to explain

How do I start this review?!
By telling that sometimes we are lucky to come across a book like this, that gets into you so completely and emotionally!!

For a lot of people this is the conclusion of Sweet Treats series, but to me this is simply the book of Toben and Tavin, the story they needed to tell us since the beginning.
We get to know how everything started for this two. How she was neglected, how he lived unwanted, about drug addicted parents,their pain, how they meet Logan and how they crea

Talk about saving the best til last. This is a fantastic dark read that will stay with me for a long time.
Before you read this make sure you read the previous books Candy Coated Chaos and Sweetened Suffering before you read this book.

I’m not going to say anything about the storyline. I rarely do when it’s part of a series as I don’t want to spoil any of the books. I will say this is a brilliant read. It’s really well written.

Heed the trigger warnings before reading this. I absolutely love dark

This was a very difficult book to read.
The abuse of children is hard and this book described a lot, but it was in such form that you want to know more and see what happens next.
The book is heartbreaking, I cried almost all the book. I have to say I finished just because I read the other two. But I had to take a lot of pauses.
The story is sad and sweet in between, the innocens of children is something wonderful.
The story of Tavin and Toben is one that it would stay with me for sometime
This was one of the most difficult books to read I've ever read. This book was really, really will take you to places you really don't want to go. If you have any triggers with child abuse, molestation, drug abuse, this is not the book for you. If you can handle those dark and difficult subjects, this was the perfect conclusion to this series. You will fall in love with young Tavin and Toben, and your heart will break for them and what they have to endure. Seeing them fight for love is ...more

Charity’s writing is beyond amazing.
I’m emotional drained from reading this book. I thought the first two books were beautifully tragic but Cupcakes and Crooked Spoons...I’m speechless.
Toben and Tavin’s stories are heartbreaking but brutally honest.
I truly feel that everyone needs to read all three books.
Wow...just wow.

The final book in the Sweet Treats Trilogy is now LIVE!!!

*Please be advised this is NOT a standalone and is the last book in a trilogy. This is easily the darkest book in the series. It contains nearly every trigger, so please be prepared for that.*

Oh man. The final book out of Charity B's Sweet Treats series is just amazing. It fits in with the rest of the series so well. It gives us some backstory for Toben and Tavin, and gives us some context into what happens to them in the first two books.

Toben and Tavin are best friends from the moment he gets shoved into the basement where she's been kept her entire life. A few months later, everything changes and their bond goes from being just best friends to being the other half of each other's

It has taken me a long time for me to write my review for this third book in The Sweet Treats series. I had been hoping to finish processing all of my thoughts and feelings, but I'm beginning to realize that it's going to take me a long time to do that.
This book, and the entire series, is one that will stay with the reader for a long time. There's so much going on, so many emotions, many of which are conflicting, and sifting through them has proven to be a painful task.

Cupcakes and Crooked Spoons is the third book in this amazing but incredibly dark series. It traces Tavin and Toben story right back to the beginning, to their childhood. These two were doomed from the start and were never destined for a happy ever after. There is so much conflicting emotion in their stories, so much tragedy and heartache. This book is harrowing and deals with the complex and awful consequence of child abuse so take heed of the warnings and don’t read it if these are triggers fo ...more

The end to the Sweet Treats trilogy.

We've known about Tavin and Toben since the beginning, but this story goes into the gory details of everything that made them who they were. Every horrible thing that Logan did.

I knew what was coming. But at the same time, I wasn't completely prepared for just how horrible Logan truly was.

The story was incredible but hard to read and stomach at times. It's a dark read, but honestly soooo worth it. Even through all the pain and suffering, Tavin and Toben came o

This was the start of a fantastic story.

You have seen what happens when Tavin meets Alexander and what they can survive together.

Now read what happened in the beginning this tells the story of how it all began.

Charity B does it again this book is an eye opener into the life that Tavin and Tobin lived and how they survived under the watchful eye and torture of Logan their master. He bought them from their 'parents' and he kept them locked away from life. They were his Lotus and his Sweet Boy and

This is the final book of the trilogy and it takes the reader back to where it all began. A little boy and a little girl in a basement. Both abused and unloved. Both sold to a monster. Tavin and Toben have known very little good in their short lives and things are only going to get worse. This book is heartbreaking. Parts of it are nauseating. But to understand how they became the people that they grew up to be this story needed to be told. I understood Tavin and Toben's actions and decisions in ...more

Cupcakes and Crooked spoons is the third and final book in the series. It goes into depth of Tavins and Tobens growing up. How they met, how Logan came to be and the event that led up to who they are. You get a look inside of the person Toben was and became. This heartbreaking, dark story has all the feels and will leave you heartbroken and wanting more . Charity really knows how to make you feel and fall in love with these characters. Definitely a must read series

WOW! This book placed everything into perspective. The abuse that Tavin and Toben faced as kids before Logan came along was unbelievable. The depravity after Logan was absolutely deplorable. The saving grace was their ability to find solace in one another, although Logan attempted to fracture their bond just for his sick enjoyment. Told from more of Toben's point of view, this book shows how he lived his life outside of the basement. The way Logan was able to manipulate both of them by threateni ...more

The writing magnificence of Charity B is in all its glory with this book and the entire Sweet Treats Trilogy. I have never been as emotional as I was while reading this book. My love for Tavin and Tobin was always real, but became cemented as I worked my way into Cupcakes and Crooked Spoons. I had moments when I thought my heart was going to be torn from my body. I was crying to the point that I had to stop reading.

It is a gift to be able to write with such visual clarity that a person feels li

This book is the same as the first two in the series, told from Tobin and Tavin’s POVs.

It nearly gutted me.

Trigger Warning
This novel contains heavy drug use, explicit sexual content, violence, extreme child abuse, and sensitive subject matter which may be triggering to some readers.

This is a very dark book , heed the **authors warning mentioned above and if you cannot read about what is warn1ed put it down. The third and final book of Charity Baileys SWEET TREATS Series , Cupcakes and Crooked Spoons will leave you feeling devastated! That such things can go on around us is unbelievable but it does.

I’m still very emotional from this book, the third of this trilogy.

It’s a haunting story, we get the full tale of Tavin and Toben from childhood to adults. It gives the details and answers that explain how they came to be what and how they are.

Definitely heed the trigger warnings. It’s extremely dark and difficult subject matter. I don’t say that lightly. ( I feel that it was written in a way that wasn’t meant to be sensational or gratuitous, just true to the situation, story and characters)

Book 3 is as dark and full of triggers as the first 2 books however after reading all three books in this series I am way past all that
this story is deep and takes the phrase "ride or die" to its meaning.
the bond between tav and to tobe is way more in the forefront for me then the horrific life they were forced into by this sicko
everyone everywhere can only dream of having a bond so unbreakable in a life time.
so much that even when tobe tries to end his suffering his vision is his mother push
