Blog Tour/Review - Sugar Babies by Mickey J. Corrigan (#giveaway)

Sugar Babies
by Mickey J. Corrigan


A sugar daddy can make your money woes disappear. But for sugar babies, life is like a chocolate-covered time bomb: sweet on the outside, deadly on the inside.

Young, beautiful, and hungry, Esme, Maire, 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.

Book provided by author in exchange for an honest review.


This book had me captivated from the moment I opened it. I loved how this story touched on 3 women's lives from different backgrounds and brought them together as friends and as pawns in a game of life and death.

I was surprised at how fast I got caught up in the story and was rooting for the girls to find the perfect "Sugar Daddy". I loved how each character either grew emotionally or failed to hold on and "sank".

This story is about 3 girls -

Maire is the seasoned sugar baby who is already set up and trying to make a go with a new company in which she sets up women with expecting sugar daddies.

Esme is beautiful and is looking for a rich man in order to finance her boyfriend's bar back home. She is to find an old man and send back money but instead she hooks a good looking rich man who at first she is in her glory but then she grows tired of him and the life. During this Esme learns that she isn't the redneck trailer park hick she always thought she was.

Nikki is in town to finish up her schooling in order to become a teacher. She doesn't have the money to fund her living arrangements so she tries to find another way to make it all work.

One of the girls ends up missing or possibly dead but then an entry from a diary is found from a Sugar Daddy stating that there were 3 girls - one he broke, one is dead and the other he married.

Wrap Up

I was scratching my head the whole time trying to figure out who this Sugar Daddy was and who was going to break and who was going to end up his wife.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat and moved very quickly during the last 30% of it...and boy was I surprised how it all ended!!


A few minutes before midnight, Esme stepped out onto the high-rise balcony and made a phone call. She felt lush, swollen, and she smelled of bed.

“The eagle has landed,” she whispered.

Jake’s cell was off, an annoying new habit he’d picked up. Which probably indicated he was in bed with some floozy from the bar. Otherwise he’d answer her call, no matter what time it was.

The wind off the ocean was cool on her bare skin. She could always call the bar directly, ask them to page him. She looked down at the black sea, the sand a luscious frosting, creamy white in the moonlight. Jake would kill her if she embarrassed him like that. She’d have to enjoy the glorious moment alone.

She’d made it! Months of nothing but strike outs and then, suddenly, a triple! Maybe even a home run! One minute she was feeling hopeless. The next, she had a sugar job, she’d scored a sugar daddy, and she’d been ushered into the sugar life. Yes!

Esme laughed out loud. Here she was, in the heart of Coconut Island, on millionaires’ row. In fact, she was standing on the terrace of one of the fancy condo buildings she’d lusted after on so many failed nights, depressing nights she’d found herself staring out a dirty bus window. Now here she was, deep breathing the sea air on the patio of a luxury condo building! She’d done even better than she’d hoped or imagined.


Author Mickey J. Corrigan lives and works and gets into trouble in the lurid tropics of South Florida, where sugarbabies are as common as gators, skeeters and snowbirds. Other titles include the novellas Geekus Interruptus, Dream Job, Professional Grievers, and Me Go Mango.
Sugar Babies is her first novel.
