    A fun spin on a classic

    As soon as I saw “adaption of The Taming of the Shrew”, I requested this book to review. Taming Sugar explores a potential relationship while addressing Roxi’s need to reset after losing a role due to her lack of patience and humility. It is a short story set in modern times with a BDSM edge. I say edge because the book’s length precludes the sex scenes from getting too involved. I typically don’t read BDSM romances, but the components worked well in this story and it never felt contrived. The characters and plotline were well rounded, enough detail to add depth and sufficient time for conflict and resolution. The exchanges between Hunter and Roxi were fun and energetic. This lightness was balanced with an emotional connection and some soul-searching. The length meant the romance moved along quickly, but it is not insta-love in the least, rather the focus is the birth of a relationship. I appreciated that the author didn’t try to do too much in a short book, ensuring the timeline made sense. The writing was crisp and the pacing brisk. This story ticked all the boxes for a short story and would be a good afternoon or weekend read. The author tied in the Taming of the Shrew elements within the story and characters’ personalities smoothly. The personal touches she added to a classic Shakespearean play were relevant while playing homage to the original. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*

    ...adds modern spice to age old vice.

    Roxy led Hunter on a merry chance. Until tempted Hunter put her in her place. Rebecca Grace Allen implemented the three S's. Short, sultry and sassy. Roxy has to face her fears in order to open up her heart. Hunter is up for the challenge. Taming Sugar adds modern spice to age old vice.
