Sugar

Rate this book
You’d think that working at a cafe I’d understand the definition of the word sweet, as it turned out, I did not. 

At least, not until I got a taste of the man sweeter than the sugar mixed in your afternoon tea.

All it took was a wad of cash, a fancy dress, and thirty minutes of passion.

I, Peyton Sanders, am not—and never will be—a whore. I was stupid to agree to date some random dude from the Sugar Daddy app, even with the promise of ludicrous amounts of money.

But that dating app changed my life. After meeting my first client, my bitter mornings filled with caffeine and stale treats, were about to become a little sweeter…

These two have done it again!

When Kristie Leigh and Stephie Walls came together to create Mila Hart, who knew the wild and craziness they'd both come up with. Sugar is their third novella and seriously, if you've not read them, you need to stop what you're doing and pick up a copy.

The title Sugar stems from a dating app (an escort kind of service) that's used when a man, or rather a sugar daddy, is in need of someone to stand by his side for business-type reasons. Well, Jake is in need of someone and Peyton is desperate for money as she's a very broke college student struggling to make ends meet. I love the premise behind this story and who knew the insta-connection that Jake and Peyton would have when they get together. Jake needs more than just a little guidance though and Peyton's feelings get hurt along the way. She's a tough character that you will love and you just want things to work out for the two of them.

Everything about the story is sweet. The wittiness and laugh out loud moments keeps you rooting for these two til the very end. Mila Hart is fun and certainly an author-duo you should keep on your radar. Their stories are like a breath of fresh air and guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Sugar is the second book I've read from Mila Hart and I enjoyed this one as much as the first. Yes, it's an older man/younger woman story, but you forget that Jake is older than Peyton until it's brought up, or you're reminded about it because of something someone says, so it certainly wasn't an issue. Peyton and Jake meet because he needs a date to an event, and Peyton is it, they hit it off amazingly well, and the chemistry between them is off the charts!! Things happen, Jake leaves her abruptly and Peyton misunderstands everything....will Peyton allow Jake to explain? Will they end up together....guess you'll just have to read this little gem to find out....I can't wait to see what Mila Hart gives us next!!

This was an enjoyable story to read. It has instant love, even when they weren't looking for it. The characters were realistic and the storyline was great. Great story!

Peyton is a law student at a prestigious and expensive school, yet she isn't rich. She works a job to make ends barely meet that she doesn't like. When her girlfriend turns her on to Sugar App, things get busy. Sugar App is where older men need a date for business or social reasons but has no physical relations. It pays good for the girl, so it is just up Peyton's alley. She needs the money and she is 'in-between boyfriends' at the time. On her first 'date' she meets a super hot guy, Jake, and they really hit it off, at least at first. Then he leaves her high and dry. Oh well, life goes on.

Jake is filthy rich and beyond handsome and is instantly attracted to Peyton. He would like to spend more time with her but he has pressing business in Europe that won't wait. He is hoping to pick things back up with her when he gets back stateside if he isn't too late. When he runs into her again at a swanky party, well, I suggest you get the book to find out how things end. You won't be disappointed.

Sugar was a fun, a kind of Pretty Woman story. A young college student trying to make ends meet decides to register with an escort style service. It's not a hook-up app, but just an escort service to be a lady on a needful guys arm for events or company. But Peyton meets her prince charming the first time she uses it. Then Prince Charming disappears for weeks leaving Peyton a little distraught and broken.

Their story has a lot of back and forth between their characters and Jake needs a lot of help to get his head on straight. He's definitely a hero that needs a lot of redemption intervention. But in the end he stands up for Peyton where it counts and shows his family and friends that it doesn't matter where a person comes from, but whats inside the heart and their plans for the future that count. And there's definitely some very hot times had in this story.

A solid 3.5 for me.

I enjoyed this book. It’s a nice quick easy read. It’s got everything as well as being hot and steamy. It has also helped me to get my read books list up for my 2019 GoodReads Challenge.


Payton Sanders is in college studying to become a lawyer. While she is putting herself through college. She works in a coffee shop, and at the rate she’s going its going to take a long time to make any decent money.

Until her best friend introduces her to an Escorting App. Payton is so unsure about this as she associates escorting with sugar daddies and lecherous men. Even though she was unsure about it all she lets her friend sign her up to the app.

Within a short amount of time Payton has her first client lined up. With a huge amount of nervous anticipation and a make over by her friend. Who lent her a nice expensive designer outfit that one of her clients had bought her. Payton is read for her first client.

When Payton is picked up by her client Jake, she couldn’t stop talking due to being so nervous. Within minutes Jake and Payton were getting on like a house on fire. Payton finally plucked up the courage to ask him why a man like him needed an escort, as she was sure that he could have his pick of any woman he wanted to accompany him to the charity ball.

Jake said it was easier as his father keeps putting pressure on him to marry the right kind of woman, a woman of his father’s choosing. So that was why he was using the escorting app as he thought it would be less complicated.

As they got to the charity ball, Payton met Jake’s father and she understood why he used the app. His father was very condescending to Payton, but Payton was able to stand up to his father for herself. Which charmed Jake even more to her.

After leaving the ball, Jake had to hurry up and take a flight to Europe. His father said it was imperative for their business that he attend the meeting with his sister to show a united front. Jake knew it was a ploy by his father to put distance between him and Payton, hoping it would put pay to his relationship.

While in the limousine heading to the airport to catch his plane. Jake ended up kissing Patyon and before both of them knew it they were having sex. This is one thing that Payton never ever does on a first date never mind tonight not being a date.

Once they arrive at the airport Jake jumps out of the limousine as soon as he can, making Payton feel as though she didn’t mean anything to him when she was positive they had some kind of connections.

Payton doesn’t hear from Jake for weeks, as far as she is concerned he’s ghosting her but there are reasons behind it. Will Payton ever hear from him again, or was she just a one night stand?

Have you ever watched Pretty Woman with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere? Great movie, right? Well, Jake and Peyton's story is a similar adventure. Jake is a wealthy man who's family is all about business...anything done, even in their personal life, should benefit the company. This also includes marriage. Peyton is a sweet, college girl who's main goal is to graduate and head to law school. To do so she is working as much as she can during summer break. She even signs up for a new job that is managed through an app and brings her and Jake together.

Sweet and sexy

Sugar is the first book I have read by Mila Hart and I thought it was a fun and quick story that held my attention. The use of the Sugar Daddy and dating site in the story is interesting and the characters are nice. This is an insta-love, very sweet, fun and sexy short story. A great thing to curl up on the couch with for a few hours.

I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are all my own.

A quick enjoyable read.
I felt that the author had the ability to convey some depth to the personalities of the characters bringing a greater sense of reality to her story.
The writing draws you in and keeps you interested until the end.
The chemistry between the H and h is great plus their attitudes and events going on make the story even richer.

Mila Hart are quickly becoming a go-to name when it comes to steamy and fun, quick reads that I just can’t get enough of.

From the electric insta-love to the delicious hero Jake, and the great strong, independent heroine Peyton I enjoyed every single minute of this story.

If you enjoy quick, steamy stories with plenty of heat and heart then Sugar and Mila Hart are a must! 5 stars.

Peyton Sanders is a poor law student at an expensive college. She works hard at a coffee shop to help pay for her education. A job she pretty much hates. When her best friend, Samantha, tells her about the Sugar Daddy app, she decides to give it a whirl. The money is almost too good to be true and it's just a date. But, when Samantha meets Jake Hollens, she thinks she's landed on cloud nine. Jake, filthy rich and handsome beyond reason is completely taken with Peyton. She's refreshingly real and charming. Their first date ends in what Peyton considers a disaster. She swears off Jake. He's been out of the country in Europe on business, so when they unexpectedly meet at a swanky party the chase is on. Jake isn't giving up this time.

I really enjoyed this insta-love romance. Jake is super sweet, even if he doesn't know what he's doing. And Peyton is independent and strong. They make a steamy combination! Definitely take a chance on this hot little novella from Mila Hart. You won't be disappointed. 4 stars

At first I wasn't sure about the topic... I admit I was wrong. Instant love for Jake.... maybe not so much for Peyton. A nice read for someone who likes a little bit drama before the HEA. I loved that Peyton was not such a shy girl who could not care and talk for herself. An in all a great book.

Jake and Peyton meet through an app. Both thinking how easy it would make life for them. Fir Jake--a date for a function. For Peyton-- money to help with college. Neither was expecting what was to come.

This was such a great read. Humor, steam, love and an HEA that leaves you giddy. I recommend one clicking today!


Sugar, it's sweet!
