Sugar Boss (Sugar Daddies #2)
Zander didn’t get where he is by playing nice. Everyone has a price. Maverick is no exception. Maverick knew when he met Zander he’d have to set boundaries. Zander Kapra already has more than any one man should, and Maverick doesn’t intend to join the list of faceless men Zander has probably bedded. It doesn’t help that Zander is in the position to make or break Maverick’s MMA career. Maverick would never let any man have that kind of power over him.As owner of all the Luna hotels and casinos on the West Coast, Zander controls who can enter bet fights in his cages. Maverick caught his eye months ago. Every Friday night, Zander makes a point of being wherever Maverick is, stalking him. Waiting for his chance. There’s something about the cocky fighter. Zander has to have him, but Maverick doesn’t treat him like everyone else. It doesn’t matter. Zander didn’t get where he is by playing nice. He gets who he wants. Whenever he wants them. He won’t allow Maverick to be an exception.From day one, Maverick and Zander struggle for dominance, but Maverick has bigger problems than Zander’s overbearing ways. Zander’s secrets might be a harder punch than he can take.

    Holy sh*t. WTF. That was so much better than the book #1. I'm so glad I'm taking a chance with this one. I'm not having issues with the writing style like the previous. It's like it was written by someone else. Hey, it's just an opinion, okay? I really liked Zander and Maverick's story. They're just so much feels between them. I admit they became a bit sappy but I do not mind. It works for them. And obviously, it works for me too. And let's not forget the angry make-up sex. Love it! Hot and dirt Holy sh*t. WTF.

    Ok. So this is a weird one to rate because I liked it. The characters. Their story. The copious amounts of hot sex they have (except the one sans lube, ouch!)...But throughout all of it I didn't quite feel connected to the story. Something was missing and I don't really know how to describe what. So, yeah. Weird. Especially since I know I'll read the next one in the series when it comes out...and probably the one after that. *shrugs*

    “A person doesn’t need water to drown. I’ve been suffocating for so long I forgot what it felt like to breathe properly before I met you.”Oh the feels in the story! Zander and Maverick’s characters are briefly introduced in Sugar Fighter so I highly recommend you read that novella before starting Sugar Boss! Trust me on this!Maverick has been MMA fighting in the casino circuit, never having enough faith in his abilities to move beyond the local matches. At each match, he feels eyes upon him.

Trust me on this!Maverick has been MMA fighting in the casino circuit, never having enough faith in his abilities to move beyond the local matches. At each match, he feels eyes upon him. Eyes that covet each move he makes. When he is approached by the owner of those gorgeous eyes, he feels an instant connection…one that sets sparks flying and kindles a hope that maybe this man could be the one. “You make me weak,” Maverick said almost too quiet to hear. A smile touched Zander’s lips. “Funny. You make me strong.”Zander Kapra is the owner of the hotels/casinos in which Maverick has been fighting his MMA matches. Zander believes he is beyond redemption for the sins of his past, but watching this young man, he feels alive again…he feels hope for a future. Never one to take no for an answer, Zander sets to woo Maverick to become his, but what he fails to realize until it’s too late is that Maverick holds the power in this relationship, and when Zander’s secrets are revealed, he lashes out at the one person who loves him, leaving Maverick broken. “Maybe we’ll find each other in the next life, and you won’t hate me there.”This reader absolutely fell hard for Zander Kapra! Everyone deserves a second chance at happiness, and I was so thrilled that Zander and Maverick got their HEA! Charity Parkerson pulled no punches in this story! I am so ready for the next installment! Highly recommend!*Received an ARC for honest review*

    So I'm not going to rate this book because I'm trying to be fair and give it credit for what it is, and not that I thought it would be. There's nothing inherently wrong with this series. It's a fun read and good in parts. It just isn't what I expected and doesn't give me what I need. This book is better than Book 1 in the sense that it's longer and actually factors in the Sugar Daddy angle (Zander has real money, and does attempt to use it to improve Maverick's life), but the book just doesn't f So I'm not going to rate this book because I'm trying to be fair and give it credit for what it is, and not that I thought it would be. There's nothing inherently wrong with this series. It's a fun read and good in parts. It just isn't what I expected and doesn't give me what I need. This book is better than Book 1 in the sense that it's longer and actually factors in the Sugar Daddy angle (Zander has real money, and does attempt to use it to improve Maverick's life), but the book just doesn't feel like all it could be. First off, I was completely overjoyed to find an m/m Sugar Daddy series. It felt like Christmas, Thanksgiving everything rolled into one and, of course, the author has to execute her vision as she sees fit. But, to me, this series feels like someone picked me up for a date in a convertible with a packed picnic lunch and a map to a garden on chateau grounds, and then parked it in the driveway and had us take the bus to McDonald's. How? Why?? Meanwhile I'm still like, 'But I thought we were...' *hooks thumb in opposite direction*. To call a series 'Sugar Daddies', have an older man with lots of money (with possible dirty origins) and a younger MMA fighter, and not even include the slightest hint of Daddy kink (not even said in jest, not even once), or any real D/s, is just....so unfulfilling for me. And by Daddy kink I don't in any way mean age play. No short shorts or pacifiers or Daddy this, Daddy that every five seconds, none of that! Daddy kink is much more nuanced, and age play is not my thing. But goodness, really? Nothing?? Sugar Daddy and 'Daddy kink' aren't necessarily totally synonymous but 'Daddy' is part of the term for a reason. Even if you don't include the kink, include some of the qualities. But, ok, let's say we totally skip the Daddy kink. To make the 'Sugar Daddy' the needy, submissive one is different (already not my favorite angle), and may very well be the case with lots of people who feel the need to 'buy' someone's affection, but could we at least have attempted to establish Zander's dominance first?? It would have been so much more interesting to have Zander think he had the upper hand, and have Maverick slowly peel away the layers and reveal his inner need; at least then the role reversal would make sense to me. Instead we have Zander send his bodyguards to ask Maverick to dinner, act like he's going to be dominant, and then he's on his knees and blah blah blah. Ugh. If that was the angle then just, from the beginning, have it be that Zander is submissive and not ashamed to pay for what he wants, which is a big, strong man to take charge in the bedroom. That would still have given him control. Instead everything just feels all over the place. Again, book 1 was just a boyfriend with money, and this book is a lost, broken dude with money (which many SDs may be, but show us the progression from the powerful front to the man behind the curtain). Everything is all giddy right from the beginning. As they're written, neither of these really screams 'Sugar Daddy' to me. It's all a bit underwhelming, and totally undermines the series title. This book still won't make it to my Sugar Daddy shelf.The insta love did not work for me. There was no depth here. One minute they've just met, and the next they're all extra lovey dovey and the love of each other's lives. I just never really felt any real connection to them. I did like the mafia angle, and Maverick's handling of the reveal, and I liked the secondary characters so there was enough to keep my interest...just not enough for me to love. Attempting to say that Zander was 'twisted' because Maverick used a toy on him one time was kind of laughable. I think maybe he felt that way because Zio made him feel he was dirty but, for me, it was more like hinted kink that never materialized. Book 3 says that Hendrix is 'kinky as hell'...I'm not getting my hopes up. I'll still probably read it in the hopes that just ONE of the books in this series turns out to be what I thought the series would be in the first place - an older, wealthy, dominant man who knows what he wants and is not afraid to use his wealth to get it, and a younger man who appreciates that even if he has to struggle at first....or teach his SD he can't be bought, and it's not about the money. Either one! If he gets on his lap and calls him Daddy from time to time, ice cream for everyone! LOL If not, I'll still love it as long as the 'Daddy' is sexy, dominant, self assured and nurturing. All these wishy, washy, weak Sugar Daddies give me heartburn.

    Sugar Boss is a better read than Sugar Fighter, that's for sure, but it's still far from a perfect read. I liked some things, and I disliked some things - and at some point I figured that they balanced each other out enough to justify a two-star, "it's okay" rating. But, well. There's visible improvement from the first book, no doubt thanks to the length of the story, so I figured that warranted an extra star.I'll get the cons out of the way first. Zander's behavior bothered me half the time. Ev Sugar Boss is a better read than Sugar Fighter, that's for sure, but it's still far from a perfect read.

There's visible improvement from the first book, no doubt thanks to the length of the story, so I figured that warranted an extra star.I'll get the cons out of the way first. Zander's behavior bothered me half the time. Eventually I did understand; sometimes men who were raised the way he was just happen to have gray morals. And it wasn't like the author excused his behavior. But the stalker behavior - and Zander himself uses the word "stalker" in the book - didn't sit well with me.The writing was still choppy and stilted in a lot of places. Sometimes it got better; I found myself reading without any problems in certain parts of the book. But the myriad of short sentences written one after the other eventually came back. They all startled me out of my reading. It's improved from the first book - I noticed the choppy writing a lot less in Sugar Boss than I did in Sugar Fighter - but I sincerely hope that the next book has even better writing flow.Once I accepted that Maverick and Zander weren't gonna be the rainbows-and-unicorns type of fluffy romance I am so fond of, though, the reading experience got better for me. I wasn't entirely connected with the characters, still, but I do admit I enjoyed their dynamic a lot, especially back when they were still starting out. Maverick insisting on being the one to send Zander gifts, even if Zander is the rich man here, was a cute little touch. And eventually they did get more romantic. I was smiling a little each time Maverick did something to make Zander laugh.The book isn't perfect by any means, but still pretty enjoyable. I'll likely finish reading the entire series.

    AdorableThis was a good follow up on this series. Maverick sounds wonderful and the little bits and pieces of Zander's life sounds horrible. It would have been nice if Zander's panic attacks were addressed. But I liked this story!

    3.5 starsWayyy better than book 1. This was a short but great read. I wish it was longer and we got more of Zander’s story and past as it was just lightly glossed for such a heavy dark past. Will be reading book 3 when it comes out. Also.... i need that guy who ended Gio’s life, I want his and his husbands story too. Please and thank you!
