Having just come off a short reading spree in which the books dealt with very serious problems and/or had unhappy/unsettling endings, A Cup of Sugar was just what I needed to escape from the blanket of doom. A Cup of Sugar is light, sexy and fun.

Conn and Nia are neighbors. He’s been attracted to her for a long time, but even though she spies on him through her window, she won’t give him the time of day, because he’s a neighbor and if a relationship doesn’t work out, she’ll be stuck living next to him. But when her car dies just as she plans to visit her parent’s for New Year’s, she reluctantly accepts his offer of a lift. Give a man an inch, and he’ll take a mile. Conn leverages the long drive to get closer to Nia--much closer.

Author Karla Doyle is the master of the one-liner. Like her other novels, A Cup of Sugar is filled with her trademark wit and hot, hot sex. This book, as I stated, is lighter in tone than her others, but by virtue of that, has escape/entertainment value that so many readers seek in their romances. It was refreshing to read about characters who are basically normal instead of being saddled with major dysfunctions or traumas. If this were a movie, it would be considered romantic comedy.

This book was a pleasure to read, and I recommend it to anyone who likes contemporary romance.
