REVIEW of Sugar Street (Sugar Street #1) by M.J. Pullen

Paperback, 306 pages
Expected publication: August 7th 2018 by Freshwater Ink

"A glitzy romp!" - Kirkus Reviews

In the idyllic Atlanta enclave of Sugar Mills, four women are struggling to keep their marriages alive in the hectic whirl of middle-class suburbia.

Adventurous Jess adores her sportswriter husband, but he’s more likely to fall asleep than respond to her creative attempts at seduction. Delia agreed to an open marriage when she had nothing to lose; but now that the reality of her choice has settled in, she feels a void no direct sales commission can fill. Infertility has left ex-tennis star Carras feeling powerless and frustrated. PTA president Maizy is desperate for acceptance in the Sugar Mills community, and with her health-conscious husband.

Enter Parker, a gorgeous young tennis pro moonlighting as a male escort. Could a little well-orchestrated jealousy cure the marital blues? Will a risky scheme put the spark back in their suburban marriages, or burn everything they’ve worked for to the ground?

Playful women's fiction with relationships at its core, SUGAR STREET is a story about marriage, friendship and the wild hopes that lie beneath quiet desperation.

My Thoughts…

Sugar Street is a book about four women who are struggling in their marriages and are looking for a way to spice it up their marriages.    I think almost everyone who is married goes through struggles, goes through times when their life seems hum-drum boring, especially when children are involved.  I was intrigued at how their arrangement would work.   It made sense, but there was never a doubt in my mind that something was going to happen to them due to their arrangement.   

There are so many clues as to where this story was heading, what was going to happen to the four women.   Yet, even having an inkling of where MJ Pullen was taking the reader I could not help but keep reading until I found out if my hunch was correct.  I won’t give the ending away but I was correct but there were so many twists and turns throughout the story that I doubted myself many times.   

If you are looking for a crazy, fun, middle age women story then please go get your own copy of Sugar Street ASAP.
