This week’s Flashback Friday trilogy is a recent backlist item for Rebekah Weatherspoon that I think y’all should pick up!
The main character, Kayla, is a fat, bisexual, black woman who knows what she wants and rarely hesitates to go after it. She’s intelligent as hell, funny, sarcastic, and creative. She’s a loyal friend, and always makes time for those she loves and trusts, and the relationship between herself and her young sisters is the most adorable.
The love interest, Michael, starts out as her Sugar Daddy, a mutually beneficial agreement they come to when they meet during a time when Kayla is recently down on her luck, but it soon turns into more. He’s sweet and gentle, but firm when called for, and unfailingly honest. He cares for Kayla so tenderly that you can’t help but fall for him a bit yourself.
Their relationship moves fairly quickly, due to the length of the books, but the speed with which they date, fall in love, and marry is not a detriment to the story. Where in some cases it might be difficult to reconcile, with these two, you can just feel how right it is for them. They’re so sweet and loving you’ll feel like you need to hit up the dentist to get cavities taken care of.
SO SWEET (Sugar Baby, #1)
Desperate times call for desperate measures…
And desperate is the only way to describe Kayla Davis’s current situation. Out of work and almost out of money to cover her bills, Kayla finally caves to her roommate’s nagging and follows her to Arrangements, an online dating site that matches pretty young women with older men of a certain tax bracket.
Convinced this “make-rent-quick” scheme will surely fail – or saddle her with an 80 year old boyfriend – Kayla is shocked when Michael Bradbury, Internet billionaire and stone-cold salt and pepper fox, offers her a solution to all her financial troubles. It’s hard enough for Kayla to accept his generosity, but what’s a girl to do when the wealthiest man she’s ever met is a dream in and outside of the bedroom?
SO RIGHT (Sugar Baby, #2)
First comes love. Then comes…the most ill timed proposal in history?
Kayla Davis never dreamt she’d meet sexy, considerate, and seriously sweet Internet billionaire, Michael Bradbury, but ten months after Michael went from Sugar Daddy to for real boyfriend she can’t imagine spending another day without him. Cohabitation is totally working—throw in a puppy or two and Kayla has her happily ever after wrapped up in a perfect little bow.
Until she finds out Michael might have bigger plans for their future, like marriage, kids, and ownership of a professional sports team. Kayla is more than ready to join Michael on this amazing ride through the next chapter of their lives, but first she needs to catch her breath and see if Michael is ready to be a part of a team and not just the boss.
SO FOR REAL (Sugar Baby, #3)
Even the best laid plans can go completely off the rails…
After pulling off the perfect wedding, Kayla Davis, now Kayla Bradbury, need only sit back and enjoy her wonderful life with her amazing husband, internet billionaire and NBA franchise owner, Michael Bradbury. The two are so head over heels for each other that finding creative ways to extend their honeymoon a whole year seems likes the only logical next step in their fool-proof plan for happiness.
Too bad life has other ideas for the newlyweds. With personnel hiccups in her small business, a husband balancing dual CEO responsibilities, and news that there will be not one, but two unexpected additions to the Bradbury crew, Kayla needs to totally reconfigure her life if she has any hope of keeping things afloat.
