Title: Sugar Daddy
Shay Greer is pure GRITS—a Girl Raised In The South–but nowhere near a demure southern belle. She’s looking for a way out of her broken down marriage when she lands an unexpected job offer she really should refuse. Position? Mistress. Fringe Benefits? Of course. Fraternization with sexy CEO Reardon Boone? Required. Lured by the promise of intimacy missing from her failed marriage, Shay signs on. She’s barely survived a hellish year of heartbreak and needs a fresh start, but she gets more than she bargained for with lowcountry-boy-made-good Reardon Boone.
Bankrolling Shay into his bedroom, Reardon sticks by his tried and true rules: no-strings-attached seduction, no messy emotions, absolutely nothing resembling a relationship. This sassy, sultry woman fits the bill precisely…until she arouses more than his erotic appetite.
So desirable he sets hearts on fire in everyone from downtown debutantes to downhome mommas, Reardon is as irresistible as he is unattainable. Shay falls hard despite their unorthodox arrangement. Determined to discover what’s concealed beneath his Forbes 400 facade, she has no idea how close to home the truth will hit.

When I first read the blurb I was expecting to read a hot southern story. Then I started reading and OMG I could not stop LAUGHING!!! There were so many zingers and smarmy comments I couldn’t choose just one as my favorite. By the time I finished the second chapter I knew this was a 5-star book. There was no putting this book down at this point. Halfway through I realize Sugar Daddy was just not a funny read.
Tears of laughter, tears of pain.
Shay is an incredible character. She’s sassy and smart but there is so much more to her. The depth of her pain of her personal lose is so overwhelming. Reardon is equal smart and is no slouch at the smart mouth comments. He, of course, is rich but as the story progresses you can see he’s actually a good old southern boy at heart and his money takes a backseat to the plot. Their sexual foreplay has to be the best I’ve read in a while. Not only was it physical but it was also verbal. Frankly, the sexual innuendos they throw at each other had me in stitches. And while I found myself laughing from all the hilarious comments, I also found my self crying from both their heartbreak and pain.
No story would be complete without secondary characters and author Rie Warren has created some of the best.His family is just amazing are some of the best supporting characters I have encountered in a while. Instead of a dysfunctional family we find a loving southern family that isn’t to shabby at the one-liners either. Majority of the secondary characters come from Reardon and almost all of them are enduring.
I’ve already told my friends in my book club that they need to read Sugar Daddy . Several have already come back, thanked me and agreed this is the book of the year for them. I can’t help but agree. So if you are looking for a fantastic book that will have you riveted from cover to cover, will have you alternating between tears from laughing as well as tears from heartbreak, then read what I am calling the must read book of the year, Sugar Daddy. Way to Ms. Rie Warren, I look forward to reading more from you.
