When 24-year-old Felicity Harper is dragged to a sugar party, an event where wealthy men and women seek companionship, she never expects this one simple decision to drastically change her whole life. Her past is nothing but broken dreams and heartache. Her present is detached and dull. And her future? Well, before meeting Theodore Darcy, the famed film director, writer, producer and CEO of Darcy Entertainment, she would have expected more of the same. Love is just a fantasy and she wants no part of it - even if she can't deny the magnetic attraction between the two of them. So their arrangement is simple: sex with no strings attached. But as their intimacy becomes more powerful, so do Felicity's demons. Can Theo really shoulder her past and his own? And could Felicity even let him?

Easy listen, with not your standard ending which was a nice change. Great twist! Narrators did a great job - female narrator always reads female characters and same for male narrator even through the pint of views change and it's well done. Haven't heard it done like this before.
"A DELICIOUS KALEIDOSCOPE OF FEELS"
Felicity got talked into attending a Sugar Baby party where selected 'beautiful' people are given a number, socialize and hope that one of the rich and powerful members will choose to 'sponsor' them in exchange for companionship, sex or whatever is bartered for. Felicity had three jobs, could look after herself financially and when she wasn't working she was at home reading, talking with her roommates or watching films. She didn't really want to be there and certainly didn't want to mix.. but when she went snooping around the mansion she's watched by Billionaire Theodore Darcy and he will, if Felicity will let him, change the course of her life.
Despite his millions and his success Theodore Darcy is missing something in his life - he's annoyed with his brother for hosting a Sugar Baby party in his house.. but when he sees a beautiful woman lost in her own emotions playing his piano - Theo's instincts and libido took notice. But despite their off the charts chemistry No. 13 didn't want anything from Theo except sex that came with an end date and that was initially fine with him. However, the more 'encounters' they had, the more he wanted to get to know the mysterious, talented and unpredictable woman who'd captivated him and consumed his thoughts - but the trouble was Felicity wasn't in it for the long haul.
An entertaining story that had push-pull elements to it and enjoyable banter as Theo tried to reign in Felicity who was friendly with everyone but came with Daddy issues.. and there was angst because his parents expected so much more too. Likeable easygoing characters - heroine was funny, sassy, talented and happy and the hero was mega in every way - sexy, dirty, handsome, thoughtful, sensitive, compassionate, loving and loyal. There are plenty of sexy hot times, light times, sweet times, happy times and fun times.. until a mega twist spins the story into a whole different direction and kudos to JJ McAvoy because I NEVER saw it coming.. you sneaky talented woman. Drama filled, romantic, poignant, thought provoking, heartbreaking and beautiful scenes followed. Dual POV's and the narrators kept to their own genders which I like.
Worth a credit? Yup this one's a keeper.
"Not the best, Not the worse."
the story was OK lil dull and confusing in the first few chapters . the male narrator could have been better.. I loved Veronica pace as the female narrator for this srory.
"Narration Ruined it for me😞"
Story could have been really good but the narration is so monotone! The female is tolerable, the male totally flat!
This book is not what it seems. I didn't read the blurb and still haven't. Only judged on the cover and boy was I surprised.
Not only did it keep me completely entertained and emotionally invested, this book comes with a complete shock that had me questioning everything I had listened to up to that point. I had to rethink every thought and reevaluate every emotion. I was completely caught off guard and it was such a good thing!!
I feel like I'm slowly working through all of Veronica Pace's narration. She is such a fantastic narrator that I know I will always enjoy the books I listen to with her voice. TA Wellington is new for me and I totally loved his voice. It was perfect for the character.
Credit worthy? In a heart beat. This book will be well listened to within my library.
"An unexpected left turn (for the best)!!!"
Wow...I definitely did not think this book to turn out the way it did. I bought it because of all the great reviews it got and it was well worth the time and money. Sugar baby beautiful had it all. it had a range of emotions and nice little surprises at every turn.
It was heartwarming, loving, little to no angst, love story with some smexy times. The heroine was very smart and witty and even though Mr. Darcy was all work and no smiles, his heart leaped for Felicity from the first time he laid eyes on her and he never gave up on her; no matter what.
I love that the narrators spoke in their respective character voices and had no male doing the female character voice and vice versa.
The story was a fresh perspective for love stories and I loved it. My only hang up is that I would love to know what senior Mr. Darcy did to Arty and where he went.
Overall, great book and superb narrators. I hate that it ended. I wanted more!
Get this book, it is well worth the credit/price
Good job J.J!!!
