Lauren Dane has written another fun love story with strong characters. I really enjoy her books, and this was no exception. Wren and Gregori met years ago and became a couple, but she would not agree to marry him at that time. He is a very famous artist and she is an up and coming one and wanted to earn her fame on her own. While Gregori understood and supported Wren in this, it was frustrating to him. Finally though, she agrees. He has it all planned out for the perfect wedding, honeymoon and everything. But as they say, the best laid plans of mice and men don't always go as you want. If you want to find out about how this goes and have some laughs and giggles, you HAVE to read this. It's well worth it. I received and ARC from Netgalley for an honest opinion on this book.

4 Sweet Stars Review by Kris Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Sugar by Lauren Dane was a cute little read for sure. Wren and Gregori were a fun couple. Wren is super spunky and Gregori has a rugged appeal to make you swoon. A downed plane leads to an impromptu road trip for Wren and Gregori, leading to the honeymoon the didn't know they wanted. I love the banter between Wren and Gregori. Their relationship is fun and enjoyable. However, at times I felt lost when reading this story. It states that it can be read as a standalone but I feel that I should have read Cake before diving in. It would have made some situations understandable. Overall, the writing was good and I am inclined to one click Cake.

I requested this on a whim and it was a fun story. I liked Wren and Gregori well enough. She’s snarky and sassy and he’s got a gruff exterior, but is actually a squishy marshmallow. Plot wise, it felt a tad repetitive. I did like their playfulness and how they each did special things for the other, but the writing didn’t get their chemistry across to me. There were several phrases reused and JFC, Gregori only snarled. Overall, it was a quick and cute read. It is promoted to be able to read as a standalone, but I think I would have enjoyed it more if I was familiar with these characters. **Huge thanks to Carina Press for providing the arc free of charge**

3.25stars--SUGAR is the sequel novella to Lauren Dane’s contemporary, adult CAKE romance story line focusing on artists and lovers Wren Davis, and Gregori Ivanov. SUGAR can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalment is revealed where necessary but I recommend reading book one CAKE for backstory and cohesion. Told from dual third person perspectives (Wren and Gregori) SUGAR fast forwards Wren and Gregori’s story approximately six years wherein Gregori’s latest proposal of marriage is finally accepted by our storyline heroine. Having set his marriage plans into motion, Gregori booked a plane from Seattle to New York, in the hopes of celebrating his wedding with his bride to be but bad weather derailed the plane on the way to the Big Apple, such that our couple rented a car and made the cross –country journey back home. What ensues is a sweet, tender and gentle look as a surly Russian artist as he gives into his new wife’s sense of adventure and fun. SUGAR is a quick read; a romantic, sugar-coated story of one couple’s adventurous honeymoon and the stops along the way.

I enjoyed this one a lot! These characters are a great balance for one another. Gregori all grumpy roughness and Wren the calm in his storm. Their chemistry is off the charts! I do recommend that you read Cake before reading this one though. Otherwise you may feel like you started the story in the middle. These characters first get together in Cake and Gregori has finally convinced Wren to marry him. He's made big plans to celebrate their marriage. Plans that apparently aren't going to happen after they get stranded in Idaho. Looks like they'll have to make a road trip back to Seattle. Let all the grumpy, sexy times begin! I definitely recommend this book.

Short and sweet. I read Cake a looooong time ago that I can't remember much of it anymore. Reading Sugar reminded me that Gregori's grumpy Russian came before the Petrovs and Orlovs of Lauren Dane's current series and that Wren typifies the sassy and capable heroines she excels in writing. I enjoyed this nearly conflict-free road-trip novella. My husband and I did a similar road trip when we were newly married and I relate so much with Gregori and Wren's adventures and their responses to the situations happening around them. Sugar just made me smile the entire time I was reading it and sometimes that's all you need. Thanks, Lauren Dane for writing this gift to your fans.

Book Info Kindle Edition Expected publication: September 10th 2018 by Carina Press ASIN B01AREQRUU Edition Language English Series Cake #2, Whiskey Sharp #3.5 Other Editions (3) Source:Netgalley EARC Buy book from Amazon B&N BOOK BLURB A Cake sequel An impromptu road trip makes for the honeymoon Gregori and Wren didn’t know they wanted Bad-boy artist Gregori Ivanov wants nothing more than to marry Wren Davis. He’s asked her before—more than once—but she insisted on waiting until she’d established her own career. Now that the time is finally right, Gregori has one hell of a celebration in mind. Restaurants, museums and NYC luxury all the way…on top of all the newlywed sex they’ll be having. The universe, unfortunately, did not get the message. When their plane is grounded in Idaho, they’re forced to improvise a road trip to get back to Seattle instead of the romantic getaway Gregori painstakingly planned. But that they’re together is what’s important, and with giant roadside potato museums, funky galleries in towns with little more than two stoplights and some seriously great diner food—in between all the great sex—Gregori and Wren find a honeymoon as unique and memorable as their love. My Thoughts When first met Gregori Ivanov and Wren Davis in book 1, Cake the pair were immediately easy to relate to in many ways and in others not so much. Now 6 years later they are settled in with each other with only 1 little detail left to make Gregori happy, getting Wren to marry him. Gregori is a man who knows what he wants and he lives his life taking full advantage of every decadently sinful aspect to it that he possibly can. That includes the best places to eat, the best places to stay and the beautiful women who find him to their liking. However all the other women are no longer in the picture and the one woman Gregori loves, Wren, keeps him fully satisfied in almost every way. Wren is a woman whose hesitation to commit to a lifetime with her man is the only fly in what otherwise is a fairly smooth relationship between the two. Now the time has finally come and Wren has said yes to Gregori's latest proposal of marriage, the fun comes when all his well laid plans become toast which leads the two to improvise. Not only is this an eye-opening experience for Gregori but Wren as well when their new plans take them on a honeymoon journey neither are likely to ever forget. To say that Gregori Ivanov and Wren Davis were enjoyable in book 1, Cake is actually an understatement. But in this sequel they are crazy fun as well as hotter than a 3-alarm fire!
