At first, I liked this book, but then as I read more, I started to not like it. The main female character at first sounds like most of us. She’s not a size 0 model, but a curvy woman. Well. Woman would be a little of an understatement. As the story progresses, she goes from being likable to a full on “cry baby”. I’m not thrilled how the story descended into a “poor me, I don’t have the courage to like myself” story. Honestly, once this started (around chapter 5 or 6), I couldn’t bring myself to keep reading.

Finding true love is more complicated than Katherine expected. Trying to get a guy in bed with her is even harder. Faced with beginning her twenty-sixth year of life insecure and living in the land of Hollywood where men and women either ignore or insult her curvy existence, Katherine decides to make dating her bitch.
She’s not changing her curvy body. She won’t put down the dessert. And she isn’t going to apologize for any of it.
But decisions don’t always go according to plan.
When a flirty and rugged New Yorker asks for her phone number, Katherine freezes. She’s ready to give up before heartbreak happens. That is, until she meets the polyamorous, fairy-godmother-wanna-be, Hunter. The self proclaimed Queen of Pleasure coaches Katherine on badass dating etiquette. Hunter’s first rule? Don’t fall in love. The second rule? Perfection doesn’t exist.
A painstakingly honest tale of the difficulties that come along with learning how to love yourself in a world that expects the opposite, Sugar & Other Luxuries is a sometimes steamy, sometimes funny story about refusing to play it safe and embracing the thrill of the game of love.
