Burnt Sugar (ACE Series #2) by Layne Harper

Release Date: June 28, 2017


He left me crumpled in a ball on the worn hardwoods where my living room furniture used to be. He fed me to the paparazzi. He teased me with his new album—full of songs written about me. Then, I never heard from him again.Did I let Aaron Emerson break me? Of course not. I’m MK Landry. I turned my mess into my message. I poured my heart out to my fans on Then, I picked up the phone and made the scariest call of my life. The rest, as they say, is history.

She dropped the worst line in the history of breakup lines: be the man I deserve. What does that even mean? I ran. I had no idea how to handle her injury, anger, and disappointment. She gave up on me when I needed her the most.

My life has marched forward. I’m in the middle of my comeback, sold-out tour. I have a model girlfriend. On the outside, my world looks rock star perfect. But Mary Kay Landry left a void in my soul that no amount of fame or time spent with others can fill. I’m stuck in MK purgatory where she haunts my nights and fills my days.

Burnt Sugar is the second book in the ACE series.

My Review

“Love is not for the faint of heart, but I’m brave enough to keep trying.”

“With my own wings, I no longer fly. But, I hope by making this post live, I’ll begin healing and discovering who the new Mary Kay Laundry is.”

“Sometimes you have to wade through the trenches to come out on the other side as the person you want to be.”

“You can’t kick me out of your life just because I disappoint you. You have to love the perfectly imperfect man that is me.”

When I first picked up No Pink Caddy last September, I was swept away and completely captivated by Aaron and MK’s story. It took me on an intense ride with so many feels and gave me an ending that just left me begging for more. So, it will be no secret that I have been counting down the days, minutes and seconds for Burnt Sugar. The pressure was on and the bar was set high. Would Burnt Sugar live up to my expectations??? Well, I am hear to tell you that Layne Harper has once again knocked it out of the park. Burnt Sugar does not disappoint and my poor emotions have once again been taken for one hell of a ride…

Burnt Sugar picks up right where we last saw MK and Aaron. And I have to tell you, it was as if no time had passed at all. I was immediately pulled into their story with memories of their romance hitting me left and right. My heart ached for MK and everything that she was going through. She loved Aaron and didn’t want to be separated from him. But, he left her broken, having to deal with a life she never intended and was left alone to pick up the pieces. MK had to grow a lot in Burnt Sugar. She had rediscover herself and figure out just what she wanted in her life….Aaron has been trying desperately to move on from MK. He’s on top of the world with a new album and comeback tour. His life is everything he has ever wanted…..Only it’s missing one important thing: MK. Aaron still has a lot of anger and doesn’t fully understand why things ended the way that they did. He’s still fighting some serious demons and knows that he should stay away from MK, but that is easier said than done…..Try as they might neither Aaron or MK can fight the pull. Will these two lovers take a leap and risk a second chance or will their love crash and burn???

Burnt Sugar is the second book in the ACE Series and has once again left me utterly captivated. The story-line pulling me in and capturing my heart. My poor emotions were once again taken for a wild, yet incredible ride. I feel even harder for MK & Aaron this go round. The two of them so broken after the events of No Pink Caddy and both trying desperately to make some sense of their lives. I think they both grow a lot in this book and try hard to fight for their relationship. They still have so many obstacles to overcome and Burnt Sugar only highlights some of the hardships this young couple will have to face. I can only hope that they will continue to work hard on their relationship and will be able to overcome anything that life throws at them.

Burnt Sugar is a fantastic addition to this series. I definitely felt connected with the characters and their emotions. It had the perfect balance of angst, drama, romance, sexy good times and frustration. I loved every single second of this story, from beginning to end and can not wait for more MK and Aaron!

However, when the kids and husband are safely ensconced at school and work, she slips into her office with her three rescue dogs and writes until it’s time to drive carpool.

She’s always writing in her mind though and making notes on whatever is close by; envelopes, napkins, a kid’s homework…
