Sometimes sugar isn’t so sweet and secrets can be deadly...especially with matters of the heart.

Sienna’s bestie, Harper warned her not to intern for famous bad boy artist, Casper Mason. After all, he just fired Harper who helped Sienna get the interview. But the moment Sienna sees Casper—or Caz—sweaty, practically shirtless and swinging from chains as he works on his sculpture, she’s hooked. He’s the richest, hottest artist in New York, and he lives in the fabulous Williamsburg Sugar Factory. But he’s also an incorrigible game-player, who seems to relish testing Sienna’s loyalty with a string of unsettling tests.

She knows she should get away fast. But by the time Sienna sneaks into his locked storage room and begins to unearth his dark and terrifying secret, she’s fallen way too hard for the handsome, charismatic Caz.


My Review:
Sienna is a girl who tries to stay strong and likes a challenge. When she finds out even her best friend Harper was fired from the internship she is going for, she decides to not listen to Harper tell her to not go. As the internship goes, Caz keeps testing her to see if she is cut out for it....does she make the cut??

This was a rather quick read for me, I was able to sit down and finish it in one night. I was on a bit of a time crunch to get this book read for the blog tour, so I wasn't able to read the first book in the series. I don't think it ruined the story at all though, I was able to flow through the story very well even with the parts that I knew were from the first book. I don't think I will be able to read the first book for a while though because I know that even though everything seems to work out in the first book, things all change in the second. I will have to wait a while and try to read book one first them go back and re-read this one.

Caz seems pretty weird at first, but not scary like Sienna feels. Most people like Caz seem to be hiding something big that has changed them completely and it will take a lot to be able to get it out of them. Sienna tries for a while and ends up figuring it all out but then has a decision to make. Does she want to go back? I liked the struggle between both of the characters of trying to let the other in. They both have their reasons and until they work out their own demons they won't be able to fully open up to the other.

Sienna was a nice character too. I liked that even though she had her best friend Harper getting on to her to not do the internship she followed through with her heart and what she wanted to do. She did cave down easily no matter who was trying to influence her to do something else. She was a pretty strong character. Even in the hard times she had, she still got some guts and did the things she had to do. I also liked how she realized that even though some things look good from the outside, it isn't always what is best for you. Sometimes you have to go down the dark and scary path in order to be fully happy.

I had a slightly hard time picturing the sugar factory. I know that Caz works here as well as lives there and has an assistant that is there a lot as well. It starts off with him swinging from chains from the ceiling, but I just can't seem to picture that part very well. I guess I see them walking all over the factory but I feel it looks more like a school than a factory and I know that isn't the case. Even though for me the description of the place seemed to be a little lacking, I was still able to follow the story very easily and be able to picture everything else along the way. I could picture Sienna's outfits as well as Caz's tattoo covered body.

I liked being able to picture all the things that Caz was making and considering art. I enjoyed the snarky comments from Sienna and the sarcasm that comes out of Caz. The character's flowed really well together and I very much enjoyed the story. I like feeling the message of don't judge a book by it's cover. I felt it a few different times throughout the story all in different circumstances. It proves no matter what to give it some time before you come to a conclusion. You could make the wrong decision if you make it too soon and it could be the biggest mistake of your life.

The author has given us a nice quick read that will leave you smiling when the book ends. I was able to go to sleep after reading it and being very happy with the ending. I hope all of you give this book a chance and have a smile on your face, too :)
