Sugar & Spice
Spicetopia #1
By Phoebe Alexander
☆☆☆☆☆
I read “Sugar & Spice” from the “Sweetest Obsessions” Boxed Set Collection.
I have chosen to review Sugar & Spice by Phoebe Alexander.
WOW where do I begin!
This is a contemporary romance novel.
There is so much love between Jolie and Cy. But as we all know, a series of events will take place. Starting with Cy as the undercover boss. His job was to find out about a boycott in the family business. Jolie is the single mother of 2 young boys, one of which is terminally ill. She works 2 jobs to support her children, and the medical bills that are piling up. That is all I’m going to say about Sugar & Spice. As I will not give away spoilers, you just need to read this story along with the others in the boxed set.

Phoebe Alexander is one of the many authors, I enjoy reading. You will too! Her story is well written and loaded with some hot and steaming romance. Not just that, she has a way to suck up into her books and keep you reading. Her story also has you falling in love with Jolie and Cy. Real people, real life situations and powerful romance. Take this book and start reading, you won’t be sorry! As for Phoebe Alexander, I’m looking forward to your next book.

Sweetest Obessions is a boxset of romance stories. I particularly likes Sugar and Spice by Phoebe Alexander.
This is a great story of how romance can come from the most unlikely of places.

Cy is the son of the Sweet family who own and run a family theme park. They are extremely wealthy but dont treat their staff very well. There is rumours of a uprising by the staff so Cy is sent in undercover to investigate who is behind it.
There he meets Jolie who works are The Red Velvet Queen and starts to fall for her but there are things about her he doesnt know.

Jolie is a single mom to two boys. One of her boys is seriously ill. She struggles to pay the medical bills as The Red Velvet Queen so she also works as a mistress on the side to bring in extra money.

With so many deceptions between them and the potential uprising against Cy parents who will he choice and can their relationship survive?

It was a really enjoyable read, the characters were well written. I really enjoyed it.

Sugar and Spice by Phoebe Alexander is part of the collection of stories in the Sweetest Obsessions anthology.
This book is absolutely fantastic. I loved how real the charters felt and how completely engaged you become with them. Their story absolutely captivated me.
Once I had started reading Sugar and Spice I just couldn’t put it down. This is definitely a one sitting type of book. Phoebe Alexander knows how to write and amazing book and this one is just the latest. It is well paced and utterly engrossing. If you haven’t done so already you need to get yourself a copy of this book!

Sugar & Spice (Spicetopia #1) by Phoebe Alexander Featured in the Sweetest Obsessions Boxed Set Collection.
I was already a huge fan of Phoebe Alexander having previously read her Eastern Shore Swingers Series, so was excited to read more of her work. This book did not disappoint in the slightest. I truly lived up to the high standards that I’ve grown to expect from Phoebe Alexander.
I adored the 2 main characters and their sexual chemistry was off the charts HOT. As always this author has included some very hot and steamy sex scenes.
Cy Sweet is the undercover boss, using the name Marcus Young, who is working in the family business Sweetopia to find out who is causing disruption amongst the staff. Little did Cy expect that he’d fall for Jolie Cox (The Red Velvet Queen). Jolie is a hardworking single parent struggling to bring up her 2 boys, one of whom has Cytstic Fibrosis. She hates the sweet family and everything they stand for but totally falls for Marcus not knowing his true identity.
This is a really compelling story, seeing Jolie’s struggles to provide for her boys and the lengths that she’s willing to go to, to provide for them. But what will happen when she discovers Marcus’ true identity? Well, I’m not going to give a spoiler, you’ll have to read this fantastic book to find out.

Review of Sugar & Spice featured in the Sweetest Obsessions Boxed Set

By Phoebe Alexander

I absolutely adore this author, I really do! I love the fact the characters she writes about are every day down to earth people, especially the females! They aren’t super skinny, tanned with big chests – she opts for the more curvaceous females who are just absolutely fabulous to read about! And the female lead in the story was no exception she was brilliant! A down to earth single parent who has body hang ups like most women but also was learning how to accept her body! Jolie is probably one of my favourite female leads from Ms Alexander; there was just something about her that made me connect straight away! I loved the setting for the story; a sweet theme park – such an unusual setting for a story –loved it! Alongside the amazing Jolie was ‘Marcus’ – I just loved him! I guess I could predict how the story was going to go but I still loved everything about the two characters and the way in which they met and how their relationship went along. There was the usual steamy scenes in the story, as expected with this author and again as usual they are brilliantly written with a great spice level!!
I am so excited to see what is going to come next in the book, as Ms Alexander does lead us nicely into a second book in the epilogue! I think it’s going to be AMAZING!!!!!! This book definitely deserves more than 5 stars – I loved every single minute of it!

This box set contains 25 sweet and spicy stories from various authors. As with all box sets you get your fill of amazing stories. Sugar and Spice is just one of those stories! It is book one in the new series by Phoebe Alexander called Spicetopia, but we get it first in this set!

Sugar and Spice is a fun story. Original and different. Our main characters are the Sweet family, specifically Cy Sweet and their workers from Sweetopia, specifically Jolie, the Red Velvet Queen.

Sugar and Spice is a little different than the stories Alexander usually writes. It’s a little “sweeter”. The sex is still spicy but the actual story is sweet. However, once Cy and Jolie get to the hot tub things just might change and lead to a steamier second story!

What a fun and sexy collection of short stories. If you like witty characters and romance to the hilt, you MUST pick this up NOW!

Focusing on one of the short stories, Sugar and Spice by Phoebe Alexander, this establishes the premise of the collection in the best possible way. Wonderful characters and amazing chemistry. Alexander is always a one click author for me and this story maintains that record.

Love this story and collection!

Sugar & Spice (Spicetopia #1) by Phoebe Alexander Featured in the Sweetest Obsessions Boxed Set Collection is a pretty amazing collection of stories by some pretty amazing authors. Some I’ve read and there is a few that I haven’t but plan to. With that being said I’m doing my review on Sugar & Spice ( Spicetopia #1) by Phoebe Alexander. I don’t even know where to start other than I freaking love this Author she brings the right amount of “naughty “ to her stories. Her style of writing is amazing and I have the hardest time putting it down once I start reading. Her characters are very well developed and easily relatable and sassy.This story is steamy and very hot.The two main characters have a definite attraction to each other and their chemistry is crazy. Then there’s Colleen the boss what’s not to love about her. Find out what happens next in this must read.

I read sugar & Spice by Phoebe Alexander and I always expect great things from Phoebe Alexander and this book was no exception. I loved the characters of Cy and Jolie. I enjoyed the growth and change if Cy’s character through the story. I was also happy to see Jolie open up. This was an excellent story that touched on different issues and gave us all the feels all at the same time. Let’s not forget the moments that made the temperature rise. I don’t want to give anything away, so I will just say that this book was a wonderful read and you don’t want to miss out. This author never disappoints! I highly recommend this book.
