Young, beautiful, and hungry, Maire, Esme and Niki want what every woman wants: love, work, safe shelter, the bills paid off, a diamond-studded Rolex, and a two-bedroom condo with an ocean view. Working as sugar babies seems to be the only way to make this happen. But the sugar life is more dangerous than they thought.
Maire O’Rourke is too hot to handle herself properly. She tends to wear too tight clothes and too much make-up, but she’s got more than sex on her mind. She’s already landed one of the richest sugar daddies in Coconut City, a tropical paradise boasting more lonely men per multimillion dollar estate than just about anywhere else.
Sweet Esme Grant is a buxom blonde with a rough and tumble lover she’s left behind somewhere in hill country. She’s come to Coconut City in order to find herself a sugar daddy, a rich older man willing to fund her, along with her hometown boyfriend and their Mayberry-gone-bad dreams.
Niki Stephanopoulos, a dark, iconoclastic artist enrolled in a teaching certification program at Coconut College, struggles with depression fueled by guilt. She is embarrassed by her dependence on her family for the money she needs to survive. But she feels even worse after sleeping with her sexy, much older landlord when she’s short the rent.
Welcome to the secret lives of sugar babies. On the first day of the month, Maire, Esme and Niki struggle with overdue bills and sexy beaus. Readers can join them as they figure out ways to pay the rent, make decent love to indecent men, and stay upright on the rough road to happiness. Sugar Babies is a modern-day romance, a blue martini with a nasty twist. An intoxicating mystery steeped in social satire, the story of Esme, Niki and Maire is an all-American morality tale.

Sometimes all we need is something different. Sugar Babies is one of them. The book commences with a mysterious note which is incomplete. Then the story commences about the 3 characters of the book starting with an account for each one’s hard life and how they try to work out to overcome them. It is a story from the darker parts of their lives which is hidden from the plain view by their sparkling outer core of their lives.
The work is about how one decision or one person can change your life. It follows their helplessness, worries, hardships, friendships and happiness in the end. I found the character of Esme strong but fragile in some ways. Marie starts as the strong, powerful woman who is a support for ESme and Nikki but in the end she is completely changed and she becomes the one who needs support and Nikki was a character I was rather curious about. The characters start as something and end in something else entirely. The story seems to be a narration of these 3 women but when the book’s end comes and the mysterious note is completed you realize it is not their story after all which twists your gut and leaves you confused. Though the starting was slow, the story picked up pace and ended with quite a slam. Though the story kept getting confusing at many points, it worked its way out.
