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.

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I wish Jerry Springer still had a show,

because I would rock the hell outta that shit.

Yes! Carmen most certainly did rock the hell outta that shit.

This installment was on Red Bull.

My stay in Sugartown was most entertaining and a little bit cray cray on all the shenanigans being thrown at the characters.

There is mayhem and drama.

An enthusiastically angst filled read.

I’m now going to give you my honest thoughts on this installment.

The first half of the book was more like I had envisioned Enjoy Your Stay would be heading going on what I knew of Jackson and Holly in Welcome To Sugartown. That spitfire banter and fun times.

Then shiz and shenanigans abounded. 

Spiders, wombats, dogs, Cooper ... Chelcie...SEX!

I do want to read more from Cooper. I didn't understand his overnight love for Holly.  It felt odd, only because he arrived once he knew about the baby. I would have liked more there. I am hoping Cooper gets the last book. He seems a nice lad. He also looks rather purrtty in that banner.

Chelcie seemed ok too. I wasn't sure why she hung about for two weeks, but I did like her in the end.

I felt like I was caught in a push me-pull you, type relationship with Holly and Jackson.

Holy mother of pearl did I want to give these two some valium, or a good shake.

Not sure which.

My God. It’s like trying to pin down a puppy in a room full of bones. I think I’m getting emotional whiplash.

I wouldn’t shake a baby mamma, but dang, Holly is one high maintenance chick on hormones.

Far out! 

Then there was the way they talked to each other, or thought about each other. Sometimes it was just too funny and other times... 

* face plant * 

One of these days, I’m going to kill Jackson Rowe. I sit and watch the cereal roll around in his mouth, and it dawns on me that he reminds me of a camel; big, stupid, but sort of fun to ride.

I felt like she was always yelling at Jackson or he was yelling at her.

“Where the fuck were you? Why didn’t you answer your phone? I thought you’d gone into labor, and the dingos had eaten your baby.”

I did laugh out loud on many occasions, but sometimes I wanted some serious talk or more endearing talk. 

“You okay, Spidey?”

“You should stop calling me that, sweetheart, or I’ll web-sling your arse right into my bedroom.”

“Sp-i-de-y.” I draw out the word slowly, with a cheeky grin full of challenge. Please take me to your room, and spread your Spiderman spunk all over me, I think, and then prop my pregnant arse up against the workbench.

Jackson is twenty seven, and I love him to bits but... DUDE!!

The thing that’s really making me crazy is the thought that I love her, really fucking love her, like hearts and flowers, sing it from the mountaintop, run to the store to buy her fucking tampons kind of love. But beyond loving my cock as I pound it into her, she doesn’t feel the same way.

Now lets talk sex.

Dear lord there is some sex in this book. I love sex. I wave the flag at sex. Sex is good. But there seemed to be one use for sex in this story. I thought I understood Holly's feelings, but then I didn't really get where it was all coming from. 

Maybe hormones on smack?

Lovely having Elijah and Ana popping up with little Sammy. He is such a cutie... and so is Elijah.

Bottom line, I was very entertained.

I love Carmen’s energy in her writing.

I am totally invested in Carmen as a writer and I will be back for Now Leaving Sugartown # 3.

I did indeed enjoy my stay in Sugartown.

About the Author


Carmen Jenner is a thirty-something author, doctor, pilot and CIA agent.

She's also a compulsive, flagrant prevaricator who gets to make things up for a living.

While Sugartown may not technically exist, Carmen grew up in a small Australian town just like it, and just like her characters, she always longed for something more. They didn't have an Elijah Cade, though. If they did, you can be sure she would have never left.
