Marcus learned two important lessons in life; trust your gut and never hide your true nature. The first made him a best-selling author, and the second kept him single. Dragging his twin brother Ty to a match-making party was a split-second decision. Sam, owner and CEO of Sugar Babies, Inc., made frequent offers to find him the perfect woman. 'Perfect woman' was an oxymoron and if such a creature existed, he wasn't interested. It was difficult to justify spanking a well-behaved young lady and Marcus had no intention of giving up his favorite past-time. If nothing else, the party might help get the sassy red-head in the death- defying heels out of his head.

The 'Luck of the Irish' eluded Susan, and she didn't expect anything to change. Running into Sam on her bike was an accident, something she had plenty of experience with. It was amazing how quickly her life changed once she agreed to let Sugar Babies, Inc. find her a match. The suite, the clothes,and room service, all made her pinch herself several times a day. This was one man and a chance for a lasting relationship - a chance she had to take. Only two weeks ago, she had considered taking up the world's oldest profession just to survive.

Kelsey stood naked in front of a large mirror, critically taking note of her body. Small breasts, slim hips and short of stature, she could easily pass for a child. If someone were looking for a little girl of their own, she was certainly built for the job, she thought in disgust. The problem was she didn't feel young; she felt old, ancient at times. Somewhere along the way all the joy had been sucked out of her. The past couple of weeks with Susan were the nicest she could remember. How long had it been since something struck her as funny, how long since she had slept an entire night without waking up in a panic? The last traces of her black eye had finally faded. Now if she could find a match who didn't scare her half to death, she just might survive!

Susan made quite an impact on Sam Barringer as he walked to what he hoped would be the newest branch office of his company, Sugar Babies, Inc. After she slammed into him on a bike that was way too big for her, Sam caught his balance just in time to see the small red-haired young woman flip over the handlebars and crash to the pavement. Her messenger bag flew off her shoulder, spilling assorted packages and envelopes.� The helmet she wore was lopsided and dented, but at least it had protected her head.

“Geez, mister, why don’t you watch where you’re going?” she demanded as she struggled to her feet.� Blood dripped down her arm, and she swore loudly as she looked around at the mess.

“I’m sorry, miss.� Do you always ride hell bent for election?” Sam asked, taking a handkerchief out of his pocket and dabbing at the cut on her elbow.

“I do when I’m late.� If I don’t get this shit delivered by one, my ass is grass.”

“I would think getting there in one piece would be a priority,” Sam said as he held the cloth over the gash on her arm.

“Well, keeping this job is my priority, along with little things like food and a roof over my head, crappy as it is,” she replied huffily as she tried unsuccessfully to pull away from Sam’s grip.

“Surely your boss will understand.� I think you may need stitches.”

“Surely my boss is a dick and he will fire my ass,” Susan said.

Sam hid his grin and slapped her other hand over the makeshift bandage while he began picking up the contents of her bag and stuffing them inside.� For a little shit, she sure was mouthy, he thought.� No wonder she found it hard to keep a job.� After setting the bag by her feet, he retrieved the bicycle and started to inspect it for damage.

“Look, mister, I don’t mean to be a bitch, but could you hurry it up a little?� I don’t have much time.”

“What is your name, young lady?” Sam asked as he tried the brakes.

“Susan Shaughnessy,” she answered.� “Why, you planning to sue me?”

“Well that name and the red hair explains the temper. And, no, I don’t plan to sue you,” he said with a grin as he pulled a small knife out of his pocket and used it to tighten her handlebars.

“Good, because for fifty bucks you could buy just about everything I own at the pawn shop,” she said.

For a moment, Sam studied her.� She was risky, he knew that right off, but she was also adorable.� Even with that mouth, he thought he could find a place for her, and it would certainly be a step up, if everything she told him were true.

“Susan, here’s my card,” he told her as he helped her back onto the bike.� Damn, her feet didn’t even come close to the ground.� It amazed him that she hadn’t been hurt worse.� “If you need any medical attention from this mishap, I want you to call me and I will take care of the expenses.� I also want to know if you get fired.”

“Why?” she asked, her green eyes wide.�

“Because I said so; I wouldn’t want this little run-in we had to make things difficult for you.”

“Look, mister, I know I bitched, but it was my fault.� I hate this fucking bike, and I hate this job, but I can take care of myself.”

Sam raised his eyebrow in disbelief as Susan tried to peddle away.� Unfortunately, he still had his big hand on the back of the bike and she couldn’t budge.

Susan tried to stare him down to no avail.� Finally she gave in and looked at the card. “Sugar Babies, Inc.,” she read, and then looked at Sam. “What is Sugar Babies, Inc.? A candy store?” Susan snorted. �Noticing the serious look on Sam’s face, Susan slipped the card into her pocket.

�“What are you going to do if I do lose my job, Sam?” she asked seriously.

“I’m going to find you a new one,” he answered confidently.

Susan’s laughter surprised him.� “Well, Sam, I haven’t been able to hold the same job for more than three months in my entire life, so you might just be hearing from me.”

“I’m not surprised,” Sam replied.� “But Susan, if you do call me, I will find you a position, and I can promise you, you won’t be fired.”

“Will I like it?” she asked before she could stop herself, now that her curiosity was peaked.

“Maybe,” Sam replied smiling.� “It might just be the perfect position for you, and the benefits are extraordinary.”

“Okay, Sam, you win,” she offered with a wink as he released her bike.

“Susan, be careful,” he called after her, shaking his head when he heard a horn blow as soon as she turned the corner.� She’d call; he had no doubt, if she didn’t get herself killed first.

Sugar Babies would have died a premature death but for Sam’s keen ability to quickly assess a person’s character and needs.� After climbing the corporate ladder in businesses owned by others, he found himself lonely and frustrated.� He watched the marriages of his friends and associates crumble one after another, finally realizing where he was headed if he didn’t make a change.� Founding Sugar Babies had been a risk, but as it turned out, one worth taking.� The elite matchmaking service was in high demand, but Sam didn’t accept a client unless they had been thoroughly screened and passed with flying colors.� They didn’t advertise and preferred to stay under the radar, doing everything in their power to protect the privacy of their wealthy clients.� The last thing any of these men needed was another gold-digger trying to get their claws into them or blackmail them for their particular tastes.�

Although they catered mainly to men, it was imperative that Sugar Babies insure the well being and security of the women they brought into the organization. Sam often thought of himself as a treasure hunter, of sorts, seeking out overlooked, downtrodden women who just needed a helping hand, whether it was financial, physical or emotional.� He and his staff had matched woman from every socioeconomic class, from waitresses and bus drivers to doctors and CEO’s.� Several times they had been able to pull women from life-threatening situations and help them establish new lives, careers and nurturing relationships.

�Every couple signed a binding contract spelling out the expectations and requirements of each party.� These ranged from simple companionship agreements to documents containing specific details regarding sexual arrangements and discipline.� Most of these men had been burned multiple times and wanted a relationship where they were the leader, giving loving guidance and firm consequences for misbehavior.� As a rule, these men had had enough of being manipulated by beautiful, self-centered women and were looking for a relationship based on mutual commitment and trust. And they were prepared to pay dearly for it.�

There was also a very select group of men who were searching for women they could parent in one fashion or another, a way of life known as age-play.� This group of clients consisted of Daddies, looking for their own little girl to love and cherish.� Sam originally thought these matches would be much more difficult to arrange, but amazingly he found there were plenty of women out there who jumped at the chance to be taken care of.� Obviously, the young woman who’d almost run him down would benefit from a little guidance.

Instead of heading straight to the office, Sam decided a cup of coffee was in order after his run-in with the red head. He wanted to think about the feisty little bike messenger, whether she would be a good fit for Sugar Babies.

He found a diner nearby, and the moment he walked in, he was drawn to the woman waiting tables on her own.� Young, probably less than twenty-five, she was a tiny little thing.� Seated at the very end of the long counter, he was able to observe her easily as she came to take his order.� Blonde hair framed a sweet face, and it was impossible not to notice the black eye, despite the amount of make-up she used to conceal it.

“What can I get for you, sir?� Would you like a menu?” she asked softly, as though it hurt her lips to speak.

“I’ll have a coffee,” Sam replied as gently as he could, while anger pulsed through him.� This girl had been beaten and recently.� She winced when she picked up the coffee pot, and it was all he could do not to reach around the counter and take it from her.� “What’s your name?”

Before she could answer, a loud voice boomed from the back of the dinner.

“Kelsey, get your skinny butt in here and pick up these orders. �I ain’t got all day to wait for your sorry ass to do your job.”

Handing Sam the menu, the girl hurried away.� �Sam restrained himself, barely, from walking into the kitchen and decking the bigmouth jerk.� He would bet money it was the same man who had abused the girl. After about twenty minutes, she came back to refill his cup.

“Have you decided on what you want?”

“Kelsey, who is that man screaming at you like that?”

“That’s Rusty.� He owns this place.”

“Did he give you that black eye?” Sam asked, trying not to let his emotions show.� He had walked to the restroom and gotten a good look at the jerk.� Probably in his mid-fifties, the bald man was large, overweight and just plain dirty.� His apron was covered with stains, and they didn’t look fresh.� Several teeth were gold capped, and his bulbous nose indicated he had a problem with alcohol or drugs.

“Yeah, but it was my fault,” Kelsey admitted, her voice low.� “I dropped four plates last night, and he had to recook all the dinners. He said he would either take it out of my pay or�”

She flushed and didn’t finish the sentence, her head down as she wiped the counter.

“Why do you stay working here?” Sam asked firmly.

“I don’t have a choice.� I have no family, and he lets me sleep in the back room. The only thing that scares me is that sometimes he gets drunk and comes back late at night, says he’s just checking up on me.”

“Has he tried to�?” Sam whispered, sickened by this young girl’s plight.

“No, not yet, but I’ve got a knife under my mattress just in case. I don’t mean to be rude, but why are you asking me all these questions?� Are you a cop?” she asked, her eyes growing wide. “Because if you are, I ain’t pressing charges. I’d be out on the street.”

“I haven’t been in town long and I’m just checking things out.� I’ve opened and office here and I’m sure I can find you a job.� Here’s my card.� Keep it some place safe, and call this number when you have a moment to talk.� Tell them Sam Barringer told you to make an appointment as soon as possible. They’ll make all the arrangements. How old are you, Kelsey?”

“I’ll be twenty-one next week,” she answered looking at the card carefully.� “Sam I don’t have any fancy clothes to wear for a job interview,” she whispered, blushing in shame.

“Kelsey, I don’t care if you wear the uniform you have on now or jeans or a cardboard box.� Just make that call, okay?”� After placing a five-dollar bill on the counter for his coffee, Sam pressed a fifty into her hand. She handed the bill back to him, shaking her head.

“Okay, Sam, I’ll call. But I can’t take your money.”

Sam thought about pressing the point, but decided to let her get back to her tables before her boss used the delay as an excuse to punish her more.

He walked out hoping Kelsey would call soon; he wasn’t sure she’d make it to her twenty-first birthday if she didn’t.� Using his cell, he called his main office.

“Barringer Corporation.� How may I direct your call,” a silky female voice answered.

“Erica, this is Sam.� I want you to put me through to Jeff, but first I need you to do something for me.”

“Anything for you, Sam,” she said.

“There will be a woman calling for an interview.� Her name is Kelsey, and I want you to handle the arrangements.� Don’t put her through to Jeff and nothing specific on the position.� She’s in a desperate situation and I don’t want to scare her off. �Even if she doesn’t take the position, we will find a place for her doing something, anything, but don’t let her fear screw this up.� Kid gloves, Erica. Got it?”

“I understand completely, Sam - you’re a softy.”

“If you saw her, you’d feel the same way.� Now send me to Jeff.”

“Sugar Babies�”

“Hi, Jeff, it’s Sam.� How are things in Atlanta?”

“Fine, Sam. Are you still in New York?”

“Yes, still checking things out, and so far it’s looking good.� I think this might be a good area after all.� You know I like to keep a low profile, and this is a pretty central location.� It’s close enough to the city, but still far enough for anonymity.� Our services aren’t exactly main stream.”

“Right, but still in demand nonetheless.� I’ve done a couple of interviews this week, and I think at least one of them is interested.� A young widow with a baby, she’s just as sweet as can be.� The other one is all sass and vinegar.� It wouldn’t be hard to place her in a good position at all.� The widow will require some serious consideration, as there is a child involved, but with care we should be able to do it.”

“No doubt,” Sam replied.� “I’m meeting this afternoon with a real estate agent to look at a property I think might just be the ticket.� It’s an older home in a residential area that’s recently been zoned for commerce.� Very stately and well kept. I’d be able to use a portion of the house for personal living space until I decide how long I’m staying here.� If I decide to move on, I could always rent it out.� Get a team together that can move quickly if I decide to go with it.� I don’t want to screw around once I make up my mind.”

“Have you ever?” Jeff asked with a chuckle.� “I’m on it, Sam.� Get back to me and let me know.”

“I will.� Talk to you soon.”

I enjoyed this book the second in the Sugar baby series. I liked the characters, but wish there would have been a bit more to their story, when it ended i wanted more. I also wish there would have been a bit more about the people from the first story. Over all though i liked it and can't wait for the next one.

I am a huge fan of Steve MacFarlane but I do not like the Sugar Babies series. I did not like the characters and found the story to be flat.

This story was pretty good. The characters were ok, but could have been better developed. It ended very abruptly and with no closure. And I would have liked to read about the couple from the previous book some more. I'm sorry to say that I won't be buying book 3, as the first 2 books were too disappointing to spend more money on a 3rd book.

The Sugar Babies saga continues with some of Sam's clients. I enjoy series especially when they are written as complete stories in themselves as this series is written. I loved the differences between the two heroines in this story. Great plot and easy to relate to characters. This author knows people and their reactions and feelings. Well written and enjoyable.

This is a very nice second book to a series! Once again, I find myself enraptured by secondary characters (in this case, Ty and Kelsey) and wanting to know more about them, versus the characters in focus. However, Susan and Marcus are still quite compatitable and fun to read about!

You do not have to read the first book to understand this book. A set of hot twins find the perfect match for each of them. Two spunky ladies make that match... Susan, the Irish Lass, is so much more spunky than Kelsey, but they both end up 'upended' on the laps of Sam and Ty. If you are looking for an easy reading, light, hot spanking story, this and the Sugar Babies 1 book is for you. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

I always enjoy this author. Her characters are always very realistic. I thought the friendship between Susan and Kelsey was a great addition to the plot however it almost seem to take over so much of the story that I didn't feel like we saw enough of the 2 couples interaction. I definitely hope there will be a book 3 so we see how the couples relationship develops. I recommend reading book 1 A Sweet and Sassy Match first.

Nowhere near as good as the first book; I felt like the whole story was a lead-up to the action part, which never really happened. Had there been a few more chapters, it would have been much more satisfying.

I liked this book and the first in the series a lot, but I am going to be disappointed if there is not a sequel that goes into more depth about all the couples. In both books there is a lot of lead up, to the actual agreement to be a couple, then the story ends, satisfactorily; but I want to know what happens when the couples get down to the day-to-day part of their relationships.

I really enjoyed this story but definitely felt that it was more about the sisterly relationship between Susan and Kelsey. The relationships between Marcus and Susan and Ty and Kelsey don't even start until almost half way through the book. All of these relationships are very good and I would love to read more about them.

This second installment continues with toe more couples and is quite good so far as it goes, however, we are really only introduced to the characters. The essence is just their matching up. It doesn't move past the signing of the contract. I hope book three continues with these couples and comes out soon.

Sugar Babies Inc., Book 2 may confuse some readers unless they understand that this story runs concurrently with the first book. I think that is something the publisher should have added for clarification. For me, it was like reading how things were playing out with the other couples mentioned in Book 1. I think it's important to know what the women were thinking, doing and how they planned to negotiate the contracts they were considering signing with the men they met and were attracted to. Both women have back stories and I wouldn't have wanted that to be left out. Susan is a hot tempered woman who speaks her mind and wants everything her way. Although she is an intelligent woman, she has had difficulty keeping a job and is all too close to being flat broke. She pretends to have great self esteem, but can't believe someone could actually love her for who she is. Kelsey, on the other hand, is a quiet and scared young woman who is all too familiar with abuse. She doesn't consider herself attractive, having the physical body of a tiny woman--narrow hips, small breasts, not exactly what she thinks most men want. Marcus is a true alpha male who chooses Susan for her fire and spunk. He knows she will try to manipulate him to get her way and if he gives her an inch, she will take a mile. She does her best to entice him into having sex before the contracts are signed, but Marcus, who believes in commitment, won't agree. He does, however, give her a preview of his abilities. His twin brother, Ty, is far more laid back. He falls hard for Kelsey and is eager to teach Kelsey sex and love can be wonderful. Someone mentioned that Marcus and Ty were hesitant about signing up with Sugar Babies. I didn't read where that was the case. Marcus taking Ty along, which was a last minute decision, didn't suggest to me that either of them were hesitant. Their stories begin to play out; there is sexual tension and humor along the way. MacFarlane writes details very well and does not bore her reader. I'm sure she will tie everything up into a nice package with Book 3...contracts signed, I'm sure there will be some hot, very hot scenes to come. I've never been disappointed while reading one of her books.

Marcus taking Ty along, which was a last minute decision, didn't suggest to me that either of them were hesitant. Their stories begin to play out; there is sexual tension and humor along the way. MacFarlane writes details very well and does not bore her reader. I'm sure she will tie everything up into a nice package with Book 3...contracts signed, I'm sure there will be some hot, very hot scenes to come. I've never been disappointed while reading one of her books.

I am sorry to admit, but I did not like this book at all. In fact, it didn't even feel like the same author to me - or that she was just rushing to get it into production. The characters were flat and very two-dimensional. We hardly got to know the know the characters at all. Sam finds both of these girl within the first chapter, then the next several are spent on setting up the business, and the girls talking, shopping, etc. They don't even meet the men until 40% of the book has passed! If you are writing a shorter romance, the couples need to meet and interact earlier than that in order to establish some feeling among the readers. A chapter about the men's backgrounds and why they were hesitant about signing up with Sugar Babies would have been nice, as would have more time to develop the relationships after signing the contracts. Marcus I did not like at all - he enjoyed seeing Susan in pain after that first overly harsh spanking, never allowed her an inch in negotiations, and even after agreeing with her that she was right to feel sexually frustrated, he was more worried about how giving in would affect his bearing in the future. Susan expressed many fears internally about the relationship. I wish the author would have addressed them with the couple. Very disappointed in this and quite sure I will not read the next one.

I like this writers still and enjoyed the book. Would like more about the characters after their commitment. This book particular what happened to JoAnne who Sam met for himself in book 1. Would like to see books a bit longer for the cost. Thanks

I love this author. The Sugar Babies Inc. series is very well written. But I have to ask when are we going to hear more about these characters. What happens to them after the contracts are signed will we ever find out if it is happy ever after. I would recommend this book as a must read.
