BLURB 

Grant

I made my first million at sixteen, my first billion before I was thirty. I get what I want how I want it, and I have no problem paying for it, that includes women. Hell, I’ve already been doing it with the women I’ve been dating. They enjoy my credit cards during the day and I’m supposed to be able to enjoy them at night but as the weeks go on the excuses pile up but they still spend my money. So I’m done with dating. It’s time for a woman who knows the deal and signs on the dotted line. I’m looking for a sugar baby, it’s instant lust when I find Anne and see her curves that should come with a warning sign. Until I find out she hasn’t just been a sugar baby before; she’s sold herself by the hour in Las Vegas. It’s one step too far for me, only I can’t stop thinking about her. I find out she had her reasons for what she did, like I have mine. Her past is her past; I want her for what she is now. Besides, this is just sex, a simple exchange for time and money. Except, little by little, it becomes far from simple as I find out money doesn’t buy everything.

Anne

I thought I was done with being a sugar baby, of selling myself for security and a better life than the one I grew up in. Even though I’m a plus size, not a size two, men were more than willing to buy what I was selling.  I tried to go white collar, to be normal. For four years I worked my ass off to get a degree in accounting; only, things don’t always go as planned. The instant attraction to Grant is a cherry on top; he’s gorgeous and very generous. Is that why all my rules begin to blur, blend, and break to please him? I’m not ashamed of my past and all I’ve experienced, but it doesn’t prepare me for Grant and all the things he wants and needs from me. I don’t believe in forever, in happily ever after. What happens when he wants more than I give?

EXCERPT

I walk through the condo, finding Grant opening the door to a tall, slim, woman in a blinding white suit. I want to hate her, until she smiles at me with her whole face, eyes crinkling, cheeks dimpling.

“Yvette, I appreciate you coming by on short notice. This is Anne Thomas, the reason for your visit.”

She shakes my hand, with a firm grip. I watch as Grant starts heading to his office. “Can I get you something? Water or coffee maybe?”

Grant stops at my question and shrugs. Yvette laughs. “I’m fine thank you. Once we dig in I might need coffee. We’ll see how exacting Grant gets.”

His look says, I told you so before he turns back to his office. I look toward the woman who smiles again. We follow him into his office. Last night the desk had been almost buried in paper, now there is only a small stack of paper in the very middle.

Grant points her to a chair across from him and he pulls me around to a chair he had placed beside his own. Turning to me, “I broke into your phone, found your contract, and downloaded it. I wanted everything ready to fill in the blanks based on what we have already agreed; the monthly amount due to you and so on. Yvette has a draft of it. We are going over it to make sure there isn’t anything we need to change.”

My cheeks glow. Yvette smiles reassuringly. “Please, Ms. Thomas, no need for any embarrassment. This is a business matter and will be treated as such. I’ll draw this up and have a notary come by with me later, for you both to sign. I also encourage you to seek your own counsel as I represent Mr. Dexter. Here is what we have based on Mr. Dexter’s request. Please look it over and make changes as you see fit.”

“Thank you for the advice but I won’t be having anyone else look at it.” I take the sixteen page document. Damn, my contract had been one page. The pages are filled with a little more legalese for my terms and clarification, extending it to four pages. Everything I had said and the terms I considered negligible are here, unchanged. When we traveled, I got my own room and a thousand dollar a day allowance for spending. I got three months to myself total in a year, no more than two weeks in a row away from Grant.

Now I see Grant’s terms, they aren’t very different than I expected. I was to live in his home and be available in the evening. He wanted me to sleep in his bed at least four days out of the seven day week. His office was off limits during the day, even though his door would be open, it was always open. If I wanted to speak with him during the day I was to text him and wait for his response. When he was at his office he wasn’t to be disturbed at all.

What surprises me are the pages about my appearance. I was to maintain my appearance as I am at the start of the contract, no dieting, no pills for weight loss, no cosmetic surgery or cosmetic procedures like botox or other face fillers. Seeing how clearly Grant likes me exactly as I am, and didn’t want me to change a dimple on my ass, has me bursting with happiness.

Then I see the end date and my happiness dims. There is also a cancellation clause if either one of us should break one of the terms of agreement. A thirty day notice was required though, and the terms would still need to be fulfilled during the thirty days. No notice was allowed if there was any physical, sexual, or intentional emotional or verbal abuse. In which case, the agreement was immediately cancelled.

The part that threw me was the payment. I would be listed as an employee within his company. Which I’m happy with, I would have health and dental benefits, and taxes would be withheld, which I was also happy to have done. Except the taxes that were removed, along with the cost of the of the benefits, would be paid back as company stock in an employee stock ownership plan.

“What is an employee stock ownership plan?” The doorbell chimes as I look up.

 


His Sugar Baby by Fiona Murphy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

His Sugar Baby was a sexy, taboo romance. Anne and Grant have chemistry the instant they meet. The tension between them is thick as they navigate this path together.

Grant is a workaholic and wealthy. He has trust issues with women. When he decides to hire Anne to be his Sugar Baby, he’s expecting a simple business relationship- with benefits- that will end after a year. When the sparks begin to fly between them, he’s unsure how to proceed. Anne is a tough, smart heroine. She graduated college and tried to get away from this life. I wish her background had been explored a bit more. It felt like we were given explosive little bites, and it was overwhelming and slightly confusing at times. I found myself flipping back to reread sections that were busy.

Overall, His Sugar Baby has explosive chemistry and sex scenes. The story needed a bit more development, and some more organization. It did continue to intrigue me throughout and I am very curious about Grant’s friend Marshall.

Due to commitment issues I have lived in many different cities and my favorite is Chicago but I have managed to settle into Austin and perhaps my commitment issues are behind me.

I have enjoyed reading from a very young age and it wasn’t long before the children books bored me and I read the books my mother enjoyed Stephen King and Dean Koontz and I didn’t sleep without the light on until I was about ten.

I came across my first Harlequin by accident and it was love at first read, no one died and happy endings? It was a whole new world and I loved it.

I wrote my first story at eight and everyone died, of course. Since then I would like to think I’ve gotten better and now I’m writing the happily ever afters I first fell in love with, with some hot sex thrown in along the way.
