Kiss that man
Kissing Her Crush (Sugar City) - Ophelia London

Natalie and Luke have history together that only she can remember.  A single incident that can make the past seem so painful and give no hope to the future.  Can they get past the problems that haunt them?


Natalie is the leader of a clinical trial for depression in teenagers.  Luke is a proctor for the trial, on behalf of the money lender.  There is also an attraction between them that is almost a living thing.  One they cannot act on if they are to remain objective.


Luke never comes back to his hometown.  He came for this clinical trial, and will be gone when its over.  The simple question is will he be leaving with his heart intact?


Natalie has grown up thinking Luke hung the moon.  Now, as adults, are her feelings leftover from that crush or are they newer and more genuine?  Will the fact that they work together stop them from trying to have a solid future?


What a surprise goody this book is!  Such an amazing book with great banter, heartfelt longing, and a serious craving for chocolate.  I found I liked the characters and their honesty.  A good clean romance story from start to finish.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Review: Kissing Her Crush by Ophelia London
Kissing Her Crush (Sugar City) - Ophelia London



Kissing Her Crush is sweet as can be, which is no surprise since there’s plenty of chocolate involved. Ophelia London’s second Sugar City story is a fast-paced, enjoyable crushes-to-lovers story.

Natalie Holden is a scientist for Hershey who has finally succeeded in getting lab space for her pilot trial. She’s determined to prove that a specific type of cocoa, when combined with a rare Amazonian root, can safely help teenagers with depression. The only problem? Her high school crush, Luke Elliott, is a microbiologist who has been sent by the NIH to proctor her project. There’s instant attraction when Natalie and Luke meet again, but not only do their jobs mean they can’t get involved, Luke – a health nut – happens to think Natalie’s theory is bogus. What could be a recipe for disaster instead turns into a sweet, fun love story. Luke and Natalie are a cute couple, but they have to overcome professional differences and Luke’s issues (that come courtesy of his ex-wife) if they hope to get their happily ever after.

Natalie and Luke are likeable characters and thus their romance is enjoyable. What keeps me from rating Kissing Her Crush higher is that the romance isn’t very memorable. I was far more taken with Natalie and Luke’s jobs than I was with their love story. Ms. Landon made their work sound utterly fascinating and I could have happily shelved the romance in favor of seeing more of their careers. I was also quite taken by Natalie’s relationship with her family, specifically her brother, the reason she is so dedicated to her work. In short, pretty much everything about the book stayed with me except the love story. This wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing ifKissing Her Crush wasn’t a romance. Perhaps with a bit more development and a bit less predictability the love story could have been taken to the next level. Still, as it stands Kissing Her Crush has a lot to offer and I would definitely read more of Ms. London’s work.

Sugar Crush by Dr. Richard P. Jacob & Raquel Baldelomar
Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health - Richard Jacoby,Raquel Baldelomar

Sugar Crush exposes the shocking truth about how a diet high in sugar, processed carbohydrates, and wheat compresses and damages the peripheral nerves of the body, leading to pain, numbness, and tingling in the hands and feet, along with a host of related conditions, including migraines, gall bladder disease, and diabetes. If you suffer from ailments your doctors can’t seem to diagnose or help—mysterious rashes, unpredictable digestive problems, debilitating headaches, mood and energy swings, constant tiredness—nerve compression is the likely cause.


Sugar Crush includes a quiz in the book to assess if sugar is harming your body. I answered Yes to almost every question but two. I've been to the doctor many times concerning the symptoms I have but nothing has ever been discussed about nutrition or how much sugar I consume on a daily basis through sweets or processed foods. I started making small changes while reading this book (I checked the book out from the library 3 weeks ago) and am happy to report that some of my symptoms are already reduced. 


The author goes into great deal on how sugar is harming your body and is the cause to many health conditions but only spent one chapter on the diet that will help you quit sugar.  I am hoping the author writes a second book to go into more detail for Plan A: The Ketogenic Diet or Plan B: The Blood Sugar Regulation Diet.  Plan B is the one that I chose so now I'm looking for books to help me regulate blood sugar and kick the sugar habit.


It's a great read to understand how sugar is harming your body
