Country’s hottest bad boy.
That’s what they call me. My label ate it up until I became “too bad” for the good folks of country music. That’s when Hard Candy Records picked me up and took a chance on me. Probably not their smartest move, but I won’t tell them that. Especially when they’ve assigned me a babysitter to try and keep my ass out of trouble. One smart-mouthed, unimpressed, sexy as homegrown sin, Addy Mae Masterson.
She likes to pretend that she doesn’t like me and I like to let her.
I may have a past that haunts me and she may have a habit of getting attached, but damn if I don’t want to show her just how good this bad boy can be.
4 star review by ashley
Hold onto your hats and hearts because Beau McCrae is here. Mandi Beck returned to her love of writing musicians- this time with a country flair and southern drawl- and hooked me from the very first page. Sugar was charming and real but also delightfully dirty. That country boy sure knows how to get down!
That was thanks in part to one Addy Mae Masterson. Her name may sound familiar, that's because she pops up a few times in books featuring Stone and Willow (but this is total standalone so no need to worry). That woman takes no prisoners but also has a vulnerable side. That tender heart has gotten her attached and into trouble more than she likes to admit. So when she is forced into close quarters for the sake of turning Beau's bad boy reputation, it's a battle of head versus heart. For both of them.
Beau's been fighting a losing battle for a long time and seeing him open up and embrace the him that he wants to be was quite a sight. It didn't hurt that Addy was there to guide him on the path he didn't know he needed to be on. But fear is a funny thing and it can come out of nowhere to knock you down, just like it did Beau. Unfortunately for Addy, it was too late. She fell for the good man underneath country's bad boy.
Sugar book is a perfect mix of small town living and big city dreams. Addy is the calm to Beau's storm while Beau is just the right amount of "shouldn't" in Addy's well structured life. From tabloid stories and late night swims to misconceptions and grand gestures, Addy and Beau are proof positive that anything worth having is worth the fight.

Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.
A wife, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband and boys in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.
