    Carly di Matisse is a top chef, who escaped to the small town Pine Mountain to get away from her awful, almost ex-husband. The restaurant she’s the main chef for might not be as famous as the one she used to work at, but she enjoys being the only main chef. But she longs to return to New York, and she refuses to get attached to Pine Mountain or anyone there, especially the rugged and sexy contractor, Jackson Carter. Jackson doesn’t believe in...

    Loved Jackson right off, "hey. Just so you know, I'm behind you. I want to cover all my bases for personal safety." Carly whirled around only to find herself face-to-sternum with Mr. Fix-It." I loved his thoughts, "sh**. Sh**crapsh**! How was he supposed to manage a casual conversation with her now that he had the anatomical equivalent of the goddamn Empire State Building in his pants? Jackson winced and adjusted his jeans." There's only so much ...

    I received an ARC from the publisher for an honest review and I don’t know where to begin, because in my opinion, it was honestly that good of a story. This story had a wonderful pace to it and kept you hooked and rooting for Jackson and Carly to the very end. This is a wonderful series and I can’t wait to read more from Pine Mountain. I absolutely LOVED this book. Going into it I didn’t think that there was any way that I could put anybody...

  • Susan Shelley
    Gimme Some Sugar is Book 2 in the Pine Mountain series, but can be read as a stand-alone novel. Carly and Jackson's story is a heartwarming combination of delicious chemistry, humor, wonderful secondary characters and a place I wish was real so I could visit! Warning: you will devour this book! And, one reading isn't will go back for seconds and thirds. Hands down, another satisfying read from a fabulous author!

    I love a great foodie book and I really fell in love with the Pine Mountain series after book one. I have to tell you, Gimme Some Sugar (Pine Mountain #2) by Kimberly Kincaid is another hit out of the park in my personal opinion. It has drama, it has humor, it has enough angst to keep the story moving, and it has two HOT main characters in Carly di Matisse and Jackson Carter. OH, and we also get to visit some of our favorites from the first books...

    Received from the author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review"Gimme some sugar". I've said it many times, usually to sweet little children with cherub cheeks that begged to be pinched and kissed. Carly di Matisse uses it quite differently. Let's get close...but not too close. Hey, let's have some fun...but remember, I am only here temporarily. I really like you...but I am not going to fall in love with you. Been there, done that, have t...

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this book! Kimberly Kincaid has a fluent and polished writing style and yet manages the impression of being so casually personal I felt right at home in the Pine Mountain setting and with the characters. GIMME SOME SUGAR follows Turn Up The Heat, the first book in the Pine Mountain series. The main characters in Gimme Some Sugar are celebrity-chef, Carly di Matisse and Jackson Carter, a sexy, six-foot-four, loaded with muscle an...

Although I had not read book one, Turn Up The Heat, this is a standalone book and I had no problems connecting with the characters or the small town of Pine Mountain.This is the story of Chef Carly diMatisse and contractor/construction worker, Jackson Carter. Their first meeting was hilarious. His description of Carly when he first sees her “This woman was f@#$...

    Welcome back to Pine Mountain, a small but friendly town in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    4 starsCarly came to Pine Mountain to get away from her ex-husband and to try to establish herself as a chef of a thriving restaurant and to bide her some time until she could return home to New York City. She meets Jackson when he is contracted to repair the deck off the back of the bungalow she is renting. What starts out as a simple offer of lemonade turns into more than either one ever dreamed of. I truly enjoyed Jackson in book 1 of this se...

    I loved this story so much I bought a new Kindle so I could finish it.It’s true. I accidentally dropped my Kindle and damaged the screen then had to wait a week for Amazon to ship me a new one. Wondering what would happen to Jackson and Carly made it one of the most frustrating weeks of my life. I loved everything about this story. It’s as sweet as Carly’s blueberry scones with a liberal sprinkling of spice and enough chuckles to satisfy al...
