|Dulcie Carter loves the family business she's been running since her mother passed away, but it seems things aren't going well. With rent high and the amount of customers not venturing into the store like they used to, she finds she needs a miracle to keep the store running which just happens to be entering the annual Chocolatier's competition and hopefully winning.
Nick is set to take over his family business when his father retires, but it just so happens that plans can change especially once he meets Dulcie.
Sugar Rush was a very enjoyable story with an intriguing plot that pits a heroine and hero instantly attracted to each other from the moment they first meet against each other all because their family businesses are rivals. The dialogue revealed the tough times of the heroine exceptionally well as to how the hero was willing to help her even though knowing his father would be furious because the two families were rivals in the confectionary business. What I loved so much about Dulcie was how much of a fighter she was and that in entering the competition she was overcoming past fears. While with Nick, I liked that he went against his father and helped Dulcie to secure her future.
Overall, Ms. Astor has done a superb job writing this novel and I would recommend it those that love a good romance where the hero and heroine are rivals but end up together
