I give Sweetest Obsessions: A Contemporary Romance Boxed Set Collection, 5 stars.
This was a great collection, but the story I am going to focus on is Sugar and Spice by Phoebe Alexander. Cy is the youngest son of the Sweetopia amusement park empire. Never one to settle down or commit, his family chooses him to go undercover to ferret out who is causing unrest among the employees. He does is begrudgingly, until he meets the new Red Velvet Queen. He cannot get her out of his mind and finds himself wanting more. But will she still want him when she realizes who he really is?
Jolie works at Sweetopia as the Red Velvet Queen. The benefits and pay are not great, but she needs the money. In fact, the whole Sweet family is horrible. The only joy she gets is from the new guy in the bakery. She makes him feel things she swore off long ago. But when he finds out the real her, he will bolt — won’t he?
I absolutely loved this story. It’s like nothing I have ever read before. I would have never thought about a romance book revolving around an amusement park with two of the employees. The main characters feel so real and believable. The secondary characters too felt like people I know. Then there’s the story! The author weaves an incredible tale not only of romance but drama too. It’s not only sunshine and roses either, there are tough decisions they have to make — just like real life.
If you like incredibly written romance that is not only hot and heavy, but has so much more, this book and collection are for you.
