Max Leokov has watched the people around him find love.
At one point in life, he not only wanted that, but lived for it.
He loved once. He loved with all his heart.
His heart broken, he was left to care for his young daughter.
He deserves a second chance.
Helena Kovac has spent years studying.
She has worked her ass off to get her degree.
She doesn't have time for love. Hell, she doesn't have time to mess around, even.
Books and work are her life. Everything else comes second.
When Max and Helena join forces to help his daughter, Ceecee, they are shocked at the spark between them.
When love hits, it hits hard.
And sometimes, love hurts.
Sugar Rush is book three in the Friend-Zoned series. I personally think you should read book one, Friend-Zoned, and book two, Love Thy Neighbour, before you start this one. But they all can be read as standalones too.
SR is Max and Helena’s story, that we meet in the earlier books. Max is Nik’s younger brother and he works at Nik’s club, White Rabbit. He also has a daughter named CeeCee, who is in a wheelchair thanks to her horrible birth mother. Max loves his daughter more than anything and will always put her first. He is a BIG flirt with all the ladies; he’s hot, hilarious and perfect.
Helena is the younger sister of Nat. She just moved to New York for work as a physical therapist. Helena is really excited to be closer to Nat and all Nat’s friends, who are like an extended family. Despite her focus on work and lack of dating, Helena is a total riot! Everything that comes out of her mouth makes you laugh. She’s in love with cupcakes and Johnny Depp. We could totally be BFFs.
Max and Helena’s story was amazing. I love how Helena is around Max when she first sees him again after her sister’s wedding. He pretty much just looked right through her at the wedding. Helena damn sure remembers that and makes Max try his hardest to get her to like him. Poor Max, he just can’t seem to do anything right when it comes to Helena! The two finally come to an agreement after Max bans Helena from the local cupcake shop. Getting in the way of Helena and her cupcakes could be VERY dangerous. Max knows this and ends up getting her to work with CeeCee as her personal physical therapist. Now the let the fun begin! Max and Helena together are HOT!
We not only get Max and Helena but we get more of the whole gang. You know how much I love when a book can keep you caught up with everyone from previous stories. The best thing about Bella’s stories is she keeps you laughing the whole time. She adds in the right amount of heart tugging but keeps the humor right along with it. This is one of my favorite series out there. Pick them up today!

Belle Aurora is twenty seven years old and was born in the land down under.
At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown's Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance.
Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love.
Humorous romance novels.
Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles.
Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February 2013 Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love.
With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.
Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.
