Tour + Giveaway: Sugar Babies by Mickey J. Corrigan

Sugar Babies by Mickey J. Corrigan
Publication date: November 4th 2013
Genres: Adult, Romance, Thriller

A sugar daddy can make your money woes disappear overnight. But for sugar babies, life is like a chocolate covered time bomb: sweet on the outside, deadly on the inside.

Young, beautiful, and hungry, Maire, Esme and Niki want what every woman wants: love, work, safe shelter, the bills paid off, a diamond-studded Rolex, and a two-bedroom condo with an ocean view. Working as sugar babies seems to be the only way to make this happen. But the sugar life is more dangerous than they thought.

Maire O’Rourke is too hot to handle herself properly. She tends to wear too tight clothes and too much make-up, but she’s got more than sex on her mind. She’s already landed one of the richest sugar daddies in Coconut City, a tropical paradise boasting more lonely men per multimillion dollar estate than just about anywhere else.

Sweet Esme Grant is a buxom blonde with a rough and tumble lover she’s left behind somewhere in hill country. She’s come to Coconut City in order to find herself a sugar daddy, a rich older man willing to fund her, along with her hometown boyfriend and their Mayberry-gone-bad dreams.

Niki Stephanopoulos, a dark, iconoclastic artist enrolled in a teaching certification program at Coconut College, struggles with depression fueled by guilt. She is embarrassed by her dependence on her family for the money she needs to survive. But she feels even worse after sleeping with her sexy, much older landlord when she’s short the rent.

Welcome to the secret lives of sugar babies. On the first day of the month, Maire, Esme and Niki struggle with overdue bills and sexy beaus. Readers can join them as they figure out ways to pay the rent, make decent love to indecent men, and stay upright on the rough road to happiness. Sugar Babies is a modern-day romance, a blue martini with a nasty twist. An intoxicating mystery steeped in social satire, the story of Esme, Niki and Maire is an all-American morality tale.

Three beautiful young women: place your order now.

I seriously didn't know what I was getting myself into when I joined this tour. I just signed up and waited for the author to give me a copy of the book, without reading the synopsis. Before actually reading the book, I read the synopsis. I was seriously shocked; the plot is way out of my comfort zone. I was stunned that someone would actually write something about sugar daddies, mommies & babies. Given the plot, I was a bit reluctant to read the story and just wanted to back out from the tour. However, I thought, "What the heck. I should just try and give it a chance, maybe it's good. Also, I signed up for this so I need to see this through." I'm actually quite contented that I pushed through with this book.

To tell you the truth, the journey with this book was quite nice. It's a whole new perspective. You may think that this contains a lot of disturbing scenes, which is what I thought at first, but it doesn't. Ya, they sleep with old people but that's their preference not mine. I just try to imagine it as bearable as it could be. Also, you'll get used to the idea. Furthermore, I was actually expecting to read graphic sex scenes but seriously this book doesn't really contain much. You'll only get bits of words here and there about the topic but no graphic ones. Well, you'll expect a lot of curses, though, which is totally fine with me. 

You might wonder what could the author write about the sugar world. The author opened up different problems of society right now, which I think is the main point of the book. The hardships in life. The lack of equality in the world. The continuous striving that will get you no where. The sacrifices you make for a better life. To tell you the truth, I sort of got depressed while I was reading this book because it will really let you reflect on the things that you think is important right now but isn't. It somehow opens up your eyes to the things you try to ignore.

On the other hand, if realizations don't get you to start reading this book, the book contains a mystery that you'll surely wanna follow and find out. I'm not going to reveal the mystery because it would ruin the whole book for you. While I was reading this, I was so curious about the letter that I just want to finish it to know the mystery behind the whole book. I didn't really expect to be captivated by the story. All the loose ends were answered or solved in the end, leaving you quite contented. 

This is an unexpected good read. Don't let the plot cloud your chances of reading this. It's entertaining, exciting, reflective, & refreshing. Just remember to keep an open mind. Also, I want to thank the author for giving me a copy of this book.

PS: I used the book's actual synopsis for this book. I didn't make my own anymore. 

Rating: 4.5/5
