Review: Ain't She Sweet by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Ain't She Sweet
by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Publisher: HarperCollins
Pages: 464
Format: book
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  In high school Sugar Carey had reigned supreme. She alone had decided what or who was cool. Her spiral perm had been the perm against which all others were measured, and her opinion on which boys were acceptable to date the only one that counted. A beautiful, blonde - if not always benevolent - dictator, she had a reputation for being the wild child in her home town, the girl most likely to set the world on fire, and leave a trail of destruction in her wake. When she left home she swore she'd never return. Only now, fifteen years and several husbands later, she's run out of money, luck and options...But Sugar arrives back home to discover that everyone else is living her life. Her half sister is married to Sugar's high school sweetheart, the teacher she schemed to get fired is now a successful novelist and owns her old house. She also discovers that people have long memories - especially where Sugar is concerned...

Kritters Thoughts:  Sugar Beth grew up in a small town and when she was in her high school years she was both popular and a mean girl.  She is returning but only to get some things from her inheritance and then leave, but she is confronted by people from her past and she has to choose how she is going to respond.  

Sugar Beth ends up living in the guest house of her childhood home and I loved how one of the people she persecuted ended up living in her childhood home.  The many times that she is hurt by the people in the past, I loved her many reactions.  Eventually the story gets to the love part and I completely loved it.  The relationship didn't start easy and had some speed bumps, but I loved how Colin treated her and didn't completely forgive her of her past at the beginning.  

As I said with the other Susan Elizabeth Phillips, there are some sexy times, but the storyline is so good, so if you tend to avoid books with the sexy times, then you may want to avoid this one, BUT if you can skip over the pages and enjoy this story then get this one!  The storyline for this book completely sold me on this book.

Rating:  absolutely loved it and want a sequel
