A TASTE OF SUGAR Review & Giveaway with Marina Adair

A TASTE OF SUGAR by Marina Adair (August 25, 2015; Forever Mass Market; Sugar, Georgia #3)

A blast from her past
Charlotte Holden, Sugar’s favorite pediatrician, knows better than anyone that love only leads to heartbreak. Instead, she’s focused on creating the Grow Clinic, an outpatient center for children. All she has to do now is to host the best Founder’s Day Parade in the history of Sugar, Georgia, to win over a big-city donor. Easy as peach pie. Then sexy Jace McGraw blows back into town and utters those three words every woman dreads: we’re still married.

…leads to tantalizing trouble
Jace McGraw was making an offer on his dream business in Atlanta when he was told that his wife had some credit issues. Wait, his wife? The annulment went through years ago—or so he thought.  He’d walked away only to keep his troublemaker reputation from ruining her dreams. But now that they have a second chance, Jace offers Charlotte a deal: he’ll grant a discreet divorce in exchange for 30 days and nights of marriage. Because this time he isn’t going to let her go without a fight.

When I first started reading this series I fell in love with the McGraw brothers and although I really did enjoy this book it felt like it kind of fell a little flat. It had some cute/funny moments which I did love and it had some emotional ones that helped round out their story. 

I still loved each and every character but Jace had to be my all time favorite. He has this bad boy rep but he is sweet as sugar. Jace loves his family and since he has been gone for years he feels like he has missed so much especially Charlotte. The things Jace says and does to show her how much he wants to give it another shot really had me wishing I had this McGraw all to myself. 

Charlotte on the other hand I liked her but I kind of felt she wasn't acting like a grown up woman that she was meant to be. Charlotte let her family control her and she tends to second guess herself. The only way she starts to believe in herself is when Jace is at her side rooting in her corner. I think I just expected more for her and with her being a dr. 

The storyline was interesting and I like that they were still married but I also liked how Charlotte and Jace kind of picked up where they left off and yet started over at the same time. I mean they have known each other for so long and even though Jace walked out Charlotte is learning why he did the things he did and how they can make it work in the future. 

I really enjoyed catching up with his brothers and seeing where they are now. Finally Jace feels like he came home and part of a family. The ending was just perfect and the speeches they both have were swoon worthy. 

Adair writes wonderful family contemporary romances that keep you entertained for hours and wishing for more. Her heroes are to die for and the heroines are well rounded. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
