5 Stars.

So those that know me know I have a massive soft spot for Karla Doyle's books. They tick all the boxes for me, and as such are my go-to treat of choice if I am in need of a pick-me-up or a little light relief.

Cup Of Sugar is no exception, once again Karla has managed to bring together a small cast of normal regular everyday characters (Conn Is a Carpenter and Nia a Restaurant manager) and turn them into people you would just love to have in your phone contacts.

Who wouldn't want their hot next door neighbor showering without the blinds drawn...Erm nope not seeing any disagreement with that one. Add to the fact he is the perfect gentleman, well except when it comes to the bedroom, boy does he know what to do with his tool-kit in that area!

Nia has been burnt by the whole hot neighbor thing in the past so genuinely tries to keep away from Conn and his many and varied charms, and even after the road trip from heaven with him, she still struggles to take that final step into a full relationship with him. Unfortunately, after jumping to conclusions when seeing a partial text message on Conn’s phone Nia assumes the worst and tries to end things with him.

I loved Conn and his persistence when it came to Nia, and although her reluctance to get involved with him did get me a tad frustrated towards the end, I could understand her nervousness as she had been burnt by a similar situation in her past

Add in a dog called Zeus with gas issues, lots of witty banter, one-liners and well written sexy times and you have another bloody enjoyable read. I am so glad this is also going to be a series as a certain carpenter has a hot, tattooed, take-no-shit Cop brother, and I am itching to get my sweaty little paws on him!

Quite simply for me, it is 100% KD perfection. Everything I expect from her, and all I want from this style of book!
