Blog Tour Review & Giveaway!- Now Leaving Sugartown (Sugartown, #4) by Carmen Jenner

BT Banner
Title:  Now Leaving Sugartown (Sugartown, #4)
Author:  Carmen Jenner
Genre:  Adult, Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: March 2, 2015
Plot:   Pepper Ryan grew up the troublesome, spoiled child of a rock god. With her less-than-stellar parentage, and the bipolar disorder that has plagued her existence, to say this little firecracker is a handful would be the understatement of the century.

Sammy Belle spent more than half his life saving Pepper. He’d been her strength, her sanity, and the protective brotherly figure she never wanted to have.

They were never meant to be together.

They gave in anyway.

And just when Sammy thought he had everything he wanted, Pepper ran.

Now twenty-three, Pepper returns to Sugartown, a failed tattoo artist with one too many screws loose who’s down on her luck, wielding an ice cream van as beaten up as her heart.

Sugartown’s most coveted bachelor has always been content with the quiet life he leads until Pepper, the hellion from his past, returns to test his strength, his patience, and perhaps even his sanity. But two can play at that game, and Pepper is about to learn that Sam can give as good as he gets.

Can this good country boy survive Pepper’s cruel city world, or will the whole thing be put down to a bout of temporary insanity?

One thing is for certain:

He’s crazy about her.

She’s just crazy.

Warning: Intended for an 18+ audience. Contains sexual content, oodles of profanity, a firefighter so hot you may need a very cold shower, and one pink-haired crazy Harajuku girl.
Cover Designer: Cover It! Designs

Normally, I have to take a breather to gather up my thoughts and write up a review for a book, and Now Leaving Sugartown was no different. Only, it was.

Author Carmen Jenner, definitely ups the “crazy” to her patented Sugartown series and makes you wonder what she's going to come up with next! I mean, if you thought Holly was a hell raising firecracker, then just wait till you meet Pepper! *almost running Sammy down with that ice cream truck! Hahaha*

Now many years post Greetings From Sugartown..

Sammy Belle “Sam” and Pepper Ryan, are all grown up, and have always shared a special bond that many would look upon as brother/sister but it’s not. It’s MUCH MORE than that.

As many of you Sugartownies remember, Sammy is the little brother of Ana (“Ana Banana”) and Pepper is the daughter of Holly and ex-flame, rocker Cooper.

Growing up together, they’ve always been each other’s rock and constant shelter from the rain. But as feelings and new awareness’ began to grow, and the two feel their relationship developing into something more-- so do prejudices, insecurities, and tensions.

Now, fast forward five years later…And with her aspiring tattoo career flushed down the drain and her love life in tatters, Pepper returns to Sugartown, to plan out her next move and to face the boy who’s heart she shattered after one fateful encounter.

Will a second chance at love, be the charm?

What will happen when time runs short, and what she thought she could protect and shield Sammy from, turns to be ultimately her worst enemy?

open quote pink Quit fucking running, Pepper…that’s all you need to do—just quit running.
open quote pink No, we’re not. I ran five years ago because I knew I couldn’t be what you needed. I wanted you to be happy, and I knew I couldn’t give you that. Not in the long run.

Can Sugartown's most notorious bachelor convince the one that got away to stay and take a chance on him?... On each other?

open quote pink I want you, Pepper. I’ve never wanted anyone else.
open quote pink Together we were motherfucking fireworks.

Can he [Sammy] prove to Pepper that he can be the pillar of salvation, security, and the hope she needs to carry her on through the darkness and save her from her own horrid destruction?

And Pepper. Will Pepper be able to erase scars of the past, while salvaging and fighting for a future with Sammy? Will she be able to muster up the courage and admit that she needs help and find redemption in herself?

Are these two polar opposites truly meant for one other? Or will history repeat itself and lead to utter heartbreak and devastation?

open quote pink Pepper, if it’s one thing life with you has taught me, is that it’s always messy.

open quote pink If you leave me, I’m coming with you. You can run as far and as fast as you want, but I’ll be right behind you. I’ll be right there.

Or are some things far beyond you to fix?

open quote pink I hated that I wasn’t enough to save her from herself. That I couldn’t be the one to fix her. But I hate the thought of losing her more.

My Rating:

I stare at Sammy for entirely too long. He absentmindedly brushes a hand over his mouth, an attempt to remove crumbs that aren’t there. Because why the hell else would I be staring at him as if I wanted to give birth to his giant Viking children?
“You’re a lollipop man and you work in a nursing home?”
“Yeah,” he mutters around a mouth full of bread.
“You’re like Mother fucking Teresa.”
“Don’t start. Jake gives me enough shit over this stuff.”
Jake lets out a chuckle that has me impaling him with a single look. “You haven’t even heard the best part yet.”
“There’s more? What, did he create the fucking universe?”
“Sam’s a volunteer firefighter.”
I think I just came a little.
Was a volunteer firefighter. Now they pay me for it. And I don’t think you can claim sainthood from an occupation.”
“Dude. See that? That glazed-over look in her eyes right there? This is why you need to be telling bitches that shit when we go out to pick up. Look at her; right now she’s imagining sliding down your fireman’s pole. I’m telling ya, you gotta use that shit, man. It’s fucking gravy, baby.” He laughs again, and then says, “Or baby gravy, depending on which way you look at it.”
“Shut the fuck up,” Sammy says.
Something occurs to me just then. Sam is a fireman. Okay just for a second, put aside the fact that you’re imagining those rock-hard abs all greased up and covered in soot, and ash, and splashed all over the month of January, and think about this. Sam is a fireman. Fireman S—
“Holy shit!” I exclaim, so loud that every pair of eyes at the table turns to look at me. “You’re fireman Sam! We used to watch that show?” I implore, and then, because I don’t feel I’ve made enough of an arse of myself I sing the theme song, finishing with a pointed, “You are the hero next door!”
Jake’s loud guffaw fills the room. “Fireman Sam. Dude, that’s fucking gold!” He shoves his hand in my face for a high five, but I flip him off and leave him hanging, turning my attention back to Sammy.
“So let me get this straight—you help tiny humans safely across the road, you feed little old ladies their mashed peas and tuck them into bed, and you rescue kitties from the evil clutches of very high tree limbs.”
“I love that you can completely emasculate me and my chosen occupations in a single sentence.”

“I’m sorry, I’m just wondering when you got so … so … good? You grew up, and became a regular … person. Who helps people.” My features twist in mock disgust. “I don’t know if I’ll ever look at you the same way again.”
