Sale Blitz: “Welcome To Sugartown” & “Enjoy Your Stay” by Carmen Jenner

Title: Welcome to Sugartown
Series: Sugartown #1
Author: Carmen Jenner
Release Date: November 3, 2013
Synopsis 

Ana Belle never wanted anything more than to hang up her apron, jump on her Vespa and ride off into the sunset, leaving Sugartown in the dust.

Elijah Cade never wanted anything more than a hot meal, a side of hot arse and a soft
place to lay his head at night where he could forget about his past.

But you know what they say about wanting: you always want what you can’t have.

Nineteen-year-old virgin Ana is about to discover that’s not quite true because a
six foot three, hotter than hell, tattooed, Aussie sex god just rode
into town. He’s had a taste of her pie and he wants more– no really, Ana
bakes pies for a living, get your mind out of the gutter.

She’d be willing to hand over everything tied up in a big red bow, there’s
just one problem; Elijah has secrets dirtier than last week’s underwear.
Secrets that won’t just break Ana’s heart, but put her life at risk,
too. When those secrets come to light, their relationship is pushed to
breaking point.

Add to that a psychotic nympho best friend, an
overbearing father, a cuter than humanly possible kid brother, a wanton
womanizing cousin, the ex from hell, and more pies than you could poke a
… err … stick … at.

And you thought small towns were boring.

Welcome to Sugartown.

*Content Warning. Intended for a mature 18+ audience. Contains explicit sex, oodles of profanity and a crap-tonne of AWKWARD.

Title: Enjoy Your Stay
Series: Sugartown #2
Author: Carmen Jenner
Release Date: March 2, 2014
Synopsis

The last thing Holly Harris expected was to wind up nineteen, knocked-up, and all alone. When Coop left to pursue his dreams of becoming a rock god, he left a tiny piece of him behind.

Holly wishes he hadn’t.

Jackson wishes he hadn’t.

Jackson Rowe tried filling the void his family left by drinking, screwing
around, and leaving a string of heartbroken women in his wake. Moving
back to Sugartown should have been easy, but he hadn’t counted on the
fact his sometimes attraction to Holly would still be alive and
kicking—and he sure as hell hadn’t counted on her being pregnant with
another man’s baby.

They drive one another crazy, and yet they can’t stay away.

When old flames resurface, and even older wounds are torn open, can two
people so similar make it work? Or will their stubbornness only drive
them further apart?

*Content Warning. Intended for a mature 18+
audience. Contains angst, a crap-tonne of profanity, short-tempered
Australian wildlife, and some very pregnant sex.

My Review

Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

If there is one Australian author who understands how to make me laugh, cry, shout, and swoon, it is Miss Jenner. I have loved her Sugartown series from the very beginning, and I am more than thrilled to say that being back with Elijah Cade & Ana Belle in this latest installment has been absolutely fantastic!

This couple has had it difficult from the beginning, to say the least, and even though they love each other more than anything, their pasts are still lurking in the background, waiting to rear their ugly heads again. And the question is if they can find a way to move forward, once and for all, instead of always waiting for a bomb to explode.

Elijah, who holds a very special place in my heart, is, however, ready to take their relationship to the next level – and no, I will not reveal what that is, sorry – but he feels rather insecure about how Ana will react. He continues to doubt her wanting to stay with him, and he is filled with a lot of insecurities about himself as well.

Ana, on the other hand, has definitely become stronger in many ways since her attack a few years back, but Elijah’s cagey and rather suspicious behavior makes her doubt if she will ever really be enough for him! And so the roller coaster starts again…

Now, I cannot write this review without mentioning how much I really like how Miss Jenner shows us a more mature side to her writing skills this time. Please do not misunderstand me: there are still plenty of great laughs in this book, and some really embarrassing, yet endearing, moments, too, and I would definitely not be without them, but it honestly seems to me that there is a more serious tone of voice to this book than we have seen before from Miss Jenner.

Both Elijah and Ana have grown up a lot since we last saw them, and I really enjoyed seeing how they have evolved in many ways. Furthermore, due to the hardships they have to endure this time, they finally realize the ways to be strong for one another – whenever it is necessary, of course. Meaning: they are still pretty nutty, and so adorable that you will never get enough of them, but they come to understand the truly important matters in life. That is how I feel, at least.

I think I have mentioned this before, but one of the best ways to explain if I have truly loved a book is if I keep thinking about it days after I have finished reading it. I miss Elijah and Ana so much right now, but I still feel that their turbulent love story has come to a perfect end. But why am I not giving the book five stars? Well, to tell the truth, I wanted to see a bit more suspense, or angst, as Ana and Elijah are confronted with the fact that her attacker is back in town. In short: I would have liked seeing a few more scenes when Ana is forced to confront her issues some more. It is so difficult writing this review without giving you any spoilers, and I am sorry if you feel confused about my reasoning. Read the book, and then make up your mind – reading is, after all, subjective!

“Greetings From Sugartown” has become a favourite book of 2014 for me, and like I stated above: there are lots of laughs, drama, and angst as is the case with the previous books in the series. Oh, and some very steamy and hot sexual encounters – phew! They will definitely make you tingle in all the right places. Need I say more? No, I think not. *wink*

If you have been a fan of the Sugartown Series from the beginning, just like me, I am absolutely positive that you will love being back with the whole crazy gang again! I loved practically everything about this book – especially some of the funnier moments when Holly and Jackson make an appearance – and I loved seeing Elijah and Ana finding faith and trust in each other. They are, plain and simple, perfect for another – but they are not perfect themselves. However, that is what makes them seem so real: it is so easy to relate to them because life is messy out in the real world, but there is always hope that things will fall into place. And that is a comforting thought…

Miss Jenner, you have done it again! I loved being back in Sugartown, and even though I am sad to leave – for now, at least – I am uplifted by the thought that I can always come back: because I know that I will read your books many times in the years to come. ❤

My Review

ARC received by the author in exchange for an honest review

Carmen Jenner has done it again: she has made me laugh hysterically, bawl my eyes out, clutch my stomach and (almost) made me throw my Kindle down in frustration. Nevertheless, she has also made me sigh happily and swoon over certain parts in this second instalment in her Sugartown series.

Since reading “Welcome To Sugartown”, I have been anticipating getting inside the head of “the crazy ranga midget” – a.k.a. Holly Harris, best friend to Ana Belle. I have always wanted to see beneath her tough exterior and I must say that Miss Jenner has succeeded in showing the reader who the real Holly is.

And what a mess Holly is…Barely twenty years old, pregnant, hormonal and, first and foremost, scared out of her mind. Her parents threw her out when she told them about her pregnancy, and she now lives with Ana, Elijah, and her arch nemesis, Jackson Rowe. These two share some history – which will be fully revealed as you read the book – and they are completely crazy characters. They fight all the time, but they cannot deny the extreme sexual attraction they share, even though they both fight tooth and nail to ignore it.

“Every moment with Jack can be boiled down to games, and taunts, and who is coming while coming out on top. For the first time since we met, I don’t want to play anymore. ‘You win.’” (Holly)

Like I mentioned before, Holly is terrified of becoming a single mother – after all, the father of the baby, Cooper, left her to follow his dreams in Sydney – but she is determined to become the best mother possible. You have to admire her for not putting her child up for adoption, for wanting to take responsibility, and I could definitely understand her reactions and actions, even though some readers will probably frown upon them. But that is the best thing about books: what we think of the same story is entirely subjective. This does not, however, mean that I did not want to shake some sense into Holly sometimes…Oh, how I did!

And do not get me started on what a douche Jackson tends to be! Yes, he is charming. Yes, he is gorgeous. Yes, he can be vulnerable. But is he also a typical guy? YES! Conclusion: I wanted to throttle him for some of the things he said and did – but, as with Holly, I could also connect with him entirely throughout the book, and his feelings of doubt and hurt about Holly’s pregnancy seem to be pretty valid and…well, normal, I suppose, for many men in the real world.

In case you are wondering: yes, both Holly and Jackson show some redeeming qualities, and they can be incredibly sweet towards one another when they are not fighting. But both of them will have to learn acceptance, forgiveness, and how to allow themselves happiness instead of doing what they think is the right choice. In short: they have to learn that it is okay to follow your heart in everything instead of listening to what your mind is telling you to do.

“She laughs and fuck me it sounds like birds and springtime and all that other fucking bullshit Disney feeds us.” (Jackson)

Carmen Jenner excels at telling her readers a story filled with lots of drama, sadness, heartache, steamy sex scenes, and, ultimately, an unconventional happy-ever-after. Her characters are perfectly imperfect people, and the town of Sugartown and all its inhabitants seem so real that you almost wonder if this place does exist. (Sadly, it does not…I have checked.) I love how we see flawed and stubborn characters because these are traits that we all – to some extent – possess, even if we refuse to acknowledge them. We get to see Bob, Ana’s father, and Sammy, her little brother, again – and poor Bob and Sammy…my heart broke on more than one occasion for these two…and that is all I will say about it – you will have to read the book to find out what I mean *wink*.

I would also like to add that it was wonderful to see a seemingly happier Ana Belle & Elijah Cade, but they do not take the focus away from Holly & Jackson’s story – so yes, I loved when they made an appearance, but I was completely focused on our crazy redhead and stubborn mule, and my adrenaline really picked it up a notch or two in the last 20% of the book.

So to conclude my review, I would like to say that if you are wondering if “Enjoy Your Stay” is just as good as the first book in the Sugartown series, I will have to say: yes, it is. It is different, as all sequels should be, and Holly and Jackson are completely different characters from Ana and Elijah, but that is also at it should be. You will find yourself going from crying your heart out on one page to laughing hysterically on the next. And I really think that you will find yourself empathizing with all the characters, even Chelcie and Cooper, at some point while you are reading this book. And that, my friends, is why I love this author to bits: she makes you fall for all her characters even though you know it, on some levels, is wrong. Miss Jenner: I still wish we could all move to Sugartown and I cannot wait to see how you will torture us in your next books in the series!

Jackson

Fuck.

The way she’s looking at me right now just makes me want to bend her over and impale her on my cock. I lean in and smell sex on her. Not sex, exactly, it’s just Holly’s sweet, sweet scent, but she’s definitely aroused, or has been. Fuck. If I get my hands on that little cock-sucking emo shit again I’m gonna throttle him for messing with my woman. And yes, I’m aware I just called Holly-fucking-pain-in-my-arse-Harris my woman.

Jesus Christ. How the hell did I dig the hole so deep? 

I lower my lips to her cheek and whisper, “He get you off like old times, Hols?”

She pulls back and glares at me. “Fuck you, Jack.”

“My room or yours?”

“Very funny,” she snarls. “I need a shower.”

She stalks toward the bathroom, but I loop my arm around her shoulders and pull her back into me.

“No,” I whisper in her ear, and grind my Johnson against her arse, “you need to be fucked, sweetheart. Long, and hard, and merciless.”

She lets out a breathy moan.

“And I’m just the man to do it,” I say and start easing her back into my room. “Here’s the thing you don’t realise, Hols. That might be Coop’s baby inside you, but he couldn’t ever satisfy you the way I can. You need a man, darlin’, a man who’s not afraid to get under your skin and piss you off, and give you a damn good fucking hiding whenever you need it—not a boy who wants to dress up and play house. The only housekeeping you need is for you to be on your knees, cleaning my cock.” I whisper, as I trail kisses down her neck before gently pushing her back on the bed.
