5 out of 5 stars

Gimme Some Sugar is the fifth book in the Sex and Sweet Tea series by the talented Juliette Poe. She always writes naughtier books under the name Sawyer Bennett. I love them all! Each book can be read as standalone.
Larkin is one of five siblings and owns the local bakery in the small town of Whynot. She opened her business six years ago and just hasn’t had time to date. She also recently became partner with her brother and sister-in-law in the local bed and breakfast and that’s where she first laid eyes on the sexy biker nomad weeks ago. And now he is back. For her.
Deacon was a traveler. He loved the open road. Meeting new people in each town. He usually worked and played a bit then moved on. He only stayed in Whynot for one night. A quick stop before hitting his final destination for a few weeks anyway. Then he saw her. He knew right then that he would be back. He wanted to see her again. A woman with curves for days and a sad to match. What he didn’t expect was to fall so hard. Was he ready to settle down in a small town?
Aw! I have been waiting for this story since Deacon first walked into the B&B. I knew it was going to be interesting but damn. It was more than I thought it would be. I fell hard for both of them. The way Deacon looks at Larkin is swoon worthy.
Overall…I love it all even when I wanted to smack someone silly. It was fun, sexy and emotional. I am not sure if this is the last book in the series since she is last sibling to find love. I do hope to see them all again one day though.
“I just realized I turned into an old maid at the age of thirty, and I’ve forgotten how to be a young, vibrant, single woman.”
It’s not our first kiss. But it feels all kinds of new and wondrous and incredibly hot.
“Got enough of a peek of you last night that I know every inch of you is beautiful. Every curve. Every line, bump, and smooth patch of skin, shiny hair, wrinkles—”
“I don’t have wrinkles,” I snap.
“All of it,” he rolls right over me.

5 out of 5 stars

Gimme Some Sugar is the fifth book in the Sex & Sweet Tea series by the talented Juliette Poe, the alter ego of Sawyer Bennett. This series is set in Whynot, North Carolina and follows five siblings and their loves. Larkin is the last in the family to find her happily ever after. Sexy, biker Deacon Locke is just passing through town when he meets Larkin. He’s so intrigued by her that he stops on his way by again and plans to stay for a while. Larkin has never seen a man so hot. And he’s sweet and totally alpha. She never thought she’d want to be with a man like him, but she can’t say no to Deacon. He wants to take things slow and savor her. He doesn’t know how long he’s going to be in town. Turns out, he doesn’t really want to leave. Will Deacon decide Larkin is more important than his nomadic lifestyle? This story is so fun and sweet! Larkin is a doll with her sass and cuteness and Deacon is sexy and such a nice guy! I loved meeting and getting to know this family!


“What’s your name?”

“My what?”

“Your name?” he repeats.


“That totally matches. Your name to you. Your beautiful name matches the rest of you.”
