When Erica asked John Braden to accompany her to Vegas for a wedding, it seemed like a good idea.

John was mature, wealthy and harmless; at least she thought so until he pulled her over his knee.

Suddenly the mild-mannered man from Texas didn't seem so uncomplicated. He started flooding her office with gifts after they returned from their trip, and she was pretty sure she had his number.

If he wanted a little girl of his own, he was barking up the wrong tree. As an administrative assistant for Sugar Babies Inc., she was determined to find John the perfect match, and quickly. He was far too tempting to be ignored for long.

Susan Shaughnessy wasn't really surprised when her engagement to Marcus McCarthy went horribly wrong. After all, unless the ring on her finger had magic powers, something was bound to screw things up, and the perfectly groomed, pasty-faced bitch standing in Marcus' foyer was living proof. A man couldn't have two fiancees, especially if one of them was Susan, so she did what she did best: cut her losses and split, taking her shoes and her grandmother's silver with her. Letting her penchant for trouble and her Irish temper get the best of her may come back to bite her on the ass, providing Marcus can find her.

Chapter One

Erica refused to meet Sam’s eyes.� When he called her into his office, she had a sinking feeling she knew what his problem was, but she smiled brightly just the same and hoped for the best.�

She’d been with Sugar Babies Inc. from its inception. Sam’s bold idea of an exclusive matchmaking service for the wealthy lovelorn struck a chord with her, and when he offered her the position as his personal assistant, she readily accepted.� No one could have been more eager to escape the corporate world.� The endless grind of trying to please her superiors, spending 70+ hours a week doing every dirty task they dumped on her desk, all while looking like a fashion icon, was easy to leave behind.� Sam’s words were barely out of his mouth when she began stripping her desk and tossing her things in boxes.� It didn’t matter where he was going, she was going, too.� He was smart, kind and compassionate, and if he believed he could make a go of this new venture, she was all in.� What did she have to lose?

Her Manhattan apartment was lovely, decorated by a high-end designer, but she never had the time to enjoy it or entertain.� Men asked her out, wealthy corporate attorneys and clients, but she knew they never looked any farther than her expensive clothes and manicured nails.� Despite her appearance and business skills, Erica wanted far more than a Cartier watch and a few nights of passion.�� Although at times she wasn’t quite sure what she was looking for in a relationship, she knew it wasn’t becoming a notch on some asshole’s headboard.

Now, she typically wore what she wanted to work, although her standard ‘uniform’ was a dark navy blue suit with a pencil skirt and low-heeled pumps.� No sense in being uncomfortable.� Her long dark hair was worn up in either a French twist or tidy bun.� She kept make-up to a minimum and frequently wore a tiny pair of reading glasses perched on the end of her nose, although she didn’t need them.� They added to what she liked to think of as her ‘librarian persona’ and kept the hounds at bay.� Working with men who were both lonely and wealthy tended to put her in dangerous waters.� In her opinion, most men didn’t acquire enormous wealth and status without being somewhat of a shark, used to getting what they wanted.� The fact that they turned to Sugar Babies to find women who fit their needs, didn’t change who they were.

“I have a few things I’d like to discuss with you,” Sam said, watching as she fidgeted and looked around the room.

“Oh, Sam, that’s a lovely photo of you and Johanna,” Erica dodged, reaching forward and picking up the print.� “Was that taken in Vegas?”� Shit, shit, shit, her mind screamed.� Why did I have to mention Vegas?

“It was,” he answered, smiling as he took the picture from her hand and looked at his beautiful fianc�e before setting it back on his desk.�� “Speaking of Vegas, would you like to talk about it?”

“Not especially,” she sighed, still not meeting his eyes.

“Alright then,” he replied.� “Let’s talk about John.”

“John who?”

“John Braden, and you know very well who I was referring to,” Sam scolded gently.� “Look at me, Erica,” he insisted, steepling his fingers as he peered at her.� “I want to know what’s going on between you and John.”

“Nothing’s going on,” she replied, meeting his eyes.� “I didn’t want to go to Vegas with a group of couples and feel like a third wheel, so I asked him to come along.� He’s a nice guy, we had fun, end of story.� He’s a client, just like everyone else.”

“Then would you care to explain why, for the last month, every single match I suggest for him comes back with a negative comment from you on the form?”

“That’s not true,” she defended herself.� “I don’t care who he’s matched with as long as it works out and grows the company.”

“Oh really,” he drawled, picking up a stack of papers and walking around to the front of his desk.� Leaning his tall body against it, he began to review the forms as he recapped her comments, handing her each paper.� “Too young, too old, not a good match, he’s too dominant for her, she wants a daddy, she’s too short, they’ll look ridiculous together; he likes dark hair, she doesn’t want to be spanked or disciplined, she has children and he wants to travel, she wants to top, and my personal favorite, she’s a whiney wimp, he’ll hate that and her hair looks like straw.’� So what gives, Erica?�� Why are you deliberately sabotaging John’s chances of finding the right match?� Did he do something to you in Vegas and you want some sort of payback?”

“No, it’s nothing like that,” she insisted, standing and twisting the papers in her hands.� “I just don’t think any of these women are right for him, that’s all.”

“Would you like to drop him as a client?� I like John, know him very well, but if it bothers you to the point you can’t be objective, I’ll call him and explain that right now we are not making any progress and he should feel free to look elsewhere,” he offered, sympathetically placing his hand on her shoulder.

Erica shook his hand off and thrust the papers at his chest.� “No! Absolutely not,” she insisted.� “I’ll set up a meet-and-greet, for two weeks from Friday.� You invite every one of those women,” she said, pointing her finger at the papers in his hand.� “I’ll take care of notifying our clients, including John Braden.� I’m sorry Sam; apparently I let my personal feelings cloud my judgment, which isn’t acceptable.� I will make it my mission to find the perfect match for Mr. Braden, and this will be the best party we’ve ever had,” she promised before turning to leave the room.� She barely managed to close the door without slamming it.

Sam smiled and shook his head.� He had a feeling Erica would indeed find John’s perfect match, and he didn’t think she’d have to look too hard, if she would only open her own eyes.

Entering her office, Erica slumped down at her desk and put her head on her arms.� It had been a horrible month and the memories of what happened in Vegas frequently kept her from getting a good night’s sleep.� For the first time in her life she’d been spanked and not in a grown-up way, if there even was such a thing.� Did all spankings involve reducing a woman to a childlike state?� She didn’t know and was too embarrassed to ask Sam or Mike or any of the other men she worked with.�

She invited John Braden to go with her to Ty and Kelsey McCarthy’s wedding because everyone else was part of a couple, and she didn’t want to tag along without an escort.� Although Sam knew John quite well on a personal level, he was a recent addition to Sugar Babies’ list of clients.� After interviewing him, Erica was impressed.� He was very handsome in a tall, lanky cowboy sort of way despite his expensive suit.� Older than she, he was probably more physically fit.� While she wouldn’t consider him a health nut, he believed healthy eating, regular exercise and limiting consumption of alcohol were all beneficial.�

During the interview, she’d watched for signs of a dominant personality and found few.� His deep voice was appealing with just the slightest Texas drawl, his demeanor calm and thoughtful.� Some of the questions were quite probing but he never batted an eye and answered truthfully as far as she could tell.� Propping her chin on her hands, she recalled their conversation.

“Mr. Braden,” she began, lightly tapping her pen on her desk.� “You seem like a very nice man without, umm, complicated needs.� Can I ask you why you’ve decided to let Sugar Babies find you a suitable match instead of doing it the old-fashioned way?� I mean, surely you have no requirements that couldn’t be met by just about any woman on the dating market.”

�“I’m a very busy man, Erica.� May I call you Erica?” he asked, smiling when she nodded.� “I’m sure you know how difficult it is to detect the genuine from the phony in today’s world of instant information.� Any woman with access to a computer can find out nearly anything she wants to know about me, before I even arrive at her door.� Most of what I do, what I own, is public record and a crafty girl can mold herself into whatever she thinks I want.� That’s one of the reasons I’m so secretive regarding my personal life.� Sugar Babies hand picks its female clients and they are extensively investigated.� A woman has no idea who she may meet at one of the gatherings; giving her precious little time to transform herself into what she thinks will appeal to a certain man.� I value my free time, so why not let you do the work for me?”

“I understand,” Erica replied, looking over her forms.� “One more thing, you don’t seem to have much down here as far as sexual preferences,” she observed. “Is there anything that’s a deal-breaker as far as you’re concerned?”

“Obviously, I expect fidelity, but that goes without saying.� Other than that, I’m open to many different kinds of relationships and I don’t want to limit my options.� When I find the right woman, we can discuss it further.� Please don’t interpret this as arrogance, but I have no doubt I’ll be able provide my woman with anything she needs.”

With your money, I’m sure of it, Erica thought. Rising, she walked around her desk and extended her hand.

“Thank you for coming in, Mr. Braden,” she said as he engulfed her small hand in his.

“I’m sure we’ll be able to find you the perfect woman.”

John nearly did laugh at that.�

“Perfect really isn’t necessary,” he replied, his lips twitching.� “Honesty and respect are far more important, and please call me John.”

“Okay, John,” she smiled as he released her hand.� “We’ll be in touch.”

“I look forward to hearing from you, Erica.”

When the need for an escort presented itself, John Braden was the first man she thought of.� He was charming, attractive and wealthy.� She knew for a fact he wasn’t in a relationship, so he seemed the perfect choice to accompany her to Vegas for the wedding.� Another plus was his mild-mannered nature.� He wouldn’t expect anything and she had no intention of offering.� In her opinion, a more malleable man would be hard to find. Boy was she wrong!

Everything went well for almost the entire trip.� John was attentive, fun and generous, even going so far as to pay for her suite even though she’d invited him.� They enjoyed dinner and dancing with the other couples, gambled a little and talked a lot.� When she wanted time with the girls, he was more than happy to spend time with the other men.� Occasionally she noticed him watching her with a very intent expression on his face, but she ignored it.� Whatever he was thinking about had nothing to do with her.� If she sensed a little disapproval coming her way, she smiled and waved.� He was a cupcake, a push-over, she thought.� Hopefully he wouldn’t find a match right away, and she could take advantage of his good nature again.� Sam and Johanna were getting married in a few months, and she’d need a date for that.

It wasn’t until the night before the wedding that things spun out of control.� They all had dinner and went to a show, after which the girls wanted to go out for a few hours alone.� The alphas, as Erica mentally referred to them, finally agreed, as long as they remained in the hotel and stayed together.� Marcus maintained that it wasn’t a good idea.� Smart man, but he was outvoted.� Sam, Mike, Ty, Marcus, Jeff and John all went to find a poker game.� Johanna, Brandy, Kelsey, Susan, Elena and Erica went to find trouble. Mission accomplished!

While Susan and Erica headed to a club called Desperado’s, they left the others at an all-male dance review, stuffing money into the G-strings of nearly naked men.� Things went downhill from there.� By the end of the night when John retrieved her from the club, she was highly intoxicated and giving lap dances while strangers stuffed money into the bodice of her short cocktail dress.

Erica didn’t remember much, but the next morning when she woke to find John waiting for her in her suite, he informed her that her last words to him were, ‘You’re not the boss of me,’ as she took a swing at him.

After a very enlightening discussion about inappropriate behavior, her eating habits and his cure for them, he pulled her over his knee and spanked her to tears.� Actually, well beyond tears, but her mouth may have had something to do with that.� The worst part occurred when she stupidly told him she’d asked him to be her escort because ‘he was easily manipulated.’� That was a huge mistake.

His lecture had been nearly as bad as her spanking.� He told her point blank that there was a little girl inside her who needed attention and now, a month later, she still couldn’t get it out of her head.� Was it true, and if so, how did he know that about her?

After he left her suite, she threw herself on her bed and continued to cry for the first time in many years.� What was up with that?� She was not an emotional person.� She was a highly organized woman who had carefully constructed little compartments in her mind.� There were designated areas for her needs, insecurities, fears, dreams and emotions.� She’d be damned if she let them out for the world to pick apart.�

The strangest thing, and the one that bothered her most about the whole experience, other than the embarrassment of having her bare ass over John’s knee, was the way she felt after.�� Her tears had cleansed her in some way.� She felt refreshed, renewed, and lighter, as though for a short time she actually was a child again, without the cares and responsibilities of her complicated adult life.� It scared the crap out of her!� She carefully and methodically straightened up her compartments and put things away, things she didn’t and wouldn’t think about.� Things John seemed to know instinctively.

Now she had to find him a woman, and she had to do it quickly.� A matched man was off limits, and the sooner that happened, the safer she would feel.

Although this is a series, I feel the book can easily read as a standalone without missing out. Many of the people are in each book, and we learn more about them. Susan and Marcus are back and go through a rough patch but their love is strong. We see the wedding of Sam and Jo. Erica through John learns that sometimes it is okay to allow your inner child to make a showing, as long as it isn't bratty. This story covers many characters that are interwoven together, spankings are plenty, sex is moderate, mild age play and anal play.

This is the end of the series, but the first I’ve read. The story can stand alone, but it makes me want to read the other stories to find out more of the details. I appreciated the thoughtfulness John put into his seedling relationship with Erica. I’d like to read a follow up story about them to see how they work things out. I wanted Marcus to be more dominant, but, again, I need to read his story to find out if that’s a fair request. If the other stories are as entertaining as this one, it will be worth the time and expense.

This is the 4th book of the Sugar Babies series, I would definitely recommend reading the previous books before this one, as it will provide better background to the characters. This book actually has two stories flowing throughout it, one is about Erica & John and the other is a catchup into the life of Marcus and Susan from book 2 &3. John is a prospective client waiting to be matched with someone; when he meets Erica who works for Sugar Babies, he believes that they would be best suited together and is no longer interested in anyone at the meet he is invited to, he only wants Erica. Erica is very resistant to the idea as she thinks that John is wrong, that is until she tries out a match with him for 30days. The only thing that detracts from the story is its length, because it has two stories running throughout it, I felt it needed to be longer. I didn’t know enough about Erica & John, at the end the story quickly skips over a month or so with a quick summary about what had happened over the month. It was a great story and would recommend (as well as the other books in the series). I received this as an ARC for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful last match July 25, 2014 By Laurel Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase This was the final book in the Sugar Babies series. What a great ending. Most of the past characters appear and tell their final ending. Erica and John are the main couple and how they get together is funny, sexy lots of spanking a lots of fun. Marcus and Susan also have a finish to their story with Marcus finally getting insight into Susan's needs. I hated for the book to end and maybe Stevie will come up with another match, hint hint.

This was a fun read. The chemistry between John and Erica was great but the storyline between Susan and Marcus was even more exciting. Erica and John were great together and I loved reading about them trying to forge a relationship. John and Erica were great together, and communicated very well. While Erica tried to resist John, he was persistent and sweet and romantic and quickly won her over. I enjoy a little more build up and conflict in my books, which is why I loved the secondary characters of Marcus and Susan. Erica and John provided a sweet, romantic story and Susan and Marcus was already a couple but had conflict and angst. Great read, I would highly recommend it.

A very nice end to the Sugar Babies series. I enjoyed reading John and Erica's story, as well as seeing how things turned out for Susan and Marcus. John was wonderfully attentive and not overbearing. As someone who does not care for age-play stories, I was a bit leery when it started to head in that direction, but I really liked how John gave the power to Erica to decide how far they went in that regard. I did feel that their relationship, once she was at his house, was a bit rushed and would have liked to have read more about Erica coming to trust him. Susan and Marcus were a nice aside, although I felt frustrated that once again, Marcus didn't really understand how insecure Susan felt. I loved their interchange when he finally caught up to her again, and the humor at the end was wonderful! Good conclusion.

I totally enjoyed this book. This is John and Erica story although we are caught up on previous characters as well. John is a potential client who has his eye on Erica. Erica unconsciously has been sabotaging matches for John. Finally John makes his intentions known and the sparks fly. Although this is mostly about John and Erica, Marcus and Susanne issues are addressed as well. I would not have a complaint had this been a longer story. However, I felt slightly cheated from learning and experiencing more of John and Erica’s story. I felt their relationship was rushed and I wanted more not just because I enjoy the series but I felt like there is more to be told. I do hope the title isn’t literal. I really want more! Overall this was a enjoyable quick read.

I have loved the characters in this series. This book brings together the characters that you have loved from the previous books. You will enjoy the rest of story about Marcus and Susan. And what ever happened with Erica and John. This is a must read story. There is plenty of romance, adventure and of course spankings.

The best books are the ones you just can't put down once you start them. This is one of those books. This author always delivers that kind of story. Who wouldn't want to be chosen by a millionaire to be their adored wife even if discipline were part of the package.? This story is about 2 couples who have met through an exclusive agency that matches millionaires with perspective wives since they don't have the time to pursue them on their own. Marcus and Susan have been together a while but she is feeling insecure and unloved despite his assurances. so she runs away. Marcus must find her and convince her otherwise. Then there is John who meets Erica ( an employee of the agency ) at a meet and greet. He is convinced she is his perfect partner and now must get her to agree that it's what she needs. If you're looking for a hot romance with lots of love and affection, strong likeable characters and the need to keep wondering what will happen next then this is a book you won't want to miss. You may want to start with book 1 so you won't miss any of the the exciting stories from this series. Great Read !!

Another fantastic addition to the series and unfortunately, the conclusion. I loved everything about this book and was thrilled that Erica and John and Susan and Marcus get their HEA. I think I will have to read them all over again. I am sorry to see the series end, frankly. If you haven't read any of the others, what are you waiting for? Buy them all and enjoy!

This is the last book in the Sugar Babies series and I am so sad! I love this series! I really hope that Ms. MacFarlane decides to write about these characters again.

This is the last book in the Sugar Babies series and I am so sad! I love this series! I really hope that Ms. MacFarlane decides to write about these characters again.

Great ending to a wonderful series. I absolutely loved how the author handled Erica and John's relationship. Especially how she handled the age-play angle of the story. The more traditional age-play books just don't work for me. . But this story had me engaged. I could understand, even identify with Erica's need to feel cherished and cared for on such an elemental way. Erica's self awareness of what worked and what didn't work for her and why was inspired. Susan and Marcus' side story added so much too. The wedding at the end(no spoiler as to whose), with all the other couples there was a great way to tie everything together. If you haven't had the opportunity of reading this series, there is a guilty pleasure waiting for you. Definitely start with book one so you don't miss one special moment in these characters' lives.

This is the final book in the Sugar Babies series. It is a very sweet, thought provoking book. Erica has been working with Sugar Babies since its inception and yet hasn’t truly thought about the fact that she desperately would like to find her own perfect match. She struggles against her deepest needs but finds that John sees through her defenses and does all he can to get her to see that she needs to give herself a chance to let herself be a child again. John gets her to agree to spend her vacation with him. Once they are on ‘vacation’ together, he offers anything and everything he imagines she might need to find healing and she takes only what she needs. Meanwhile, Susan is struggling to accept the fact that Marcus truly does love her and not the woman who claims to be his fiancé. Her insecurities almost cost her the love of her life but the man simply refuses to let her go. Each couple must ask themselves exactly what they want or need and continue to explore the possibilities with the partner of their dreams. I loved the characters and believe you will as well. Very well done, Ms. Macfarlane!
