Crushed Sugar by Kimber An

Crushed Sugar (Ophelia Dawson Chronicles, Novella #1)Crushed Sugar by Kimber An

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This ebook comes out Friday March 25th

In my opinion this is more of the first book to the series – but then again this is just a preview of Ophelia’s life  before the main event in Sugar Rush – I liked reading Sugar Rush first because it left me guessing.
After reading Crushed Sugar – a LOT of the things that happened in Sugar Rush seems like it was right there in front of me the whole time – For Example , In Sugar Rush She talked to Adrian about the Barn Owl she saw at the restaurant , than seeing a strange boy walking out of the restaurant , but she didn’t get a really good look at him, so she didn’t know who he was -– and in CRUSHED – you’re right there when it happened –

So mixed feelings on if this should be the first book or second – I read that Kimber An – the author wanted Crushed to be first – but it wasn’t finished how she wanted it by the time they were ready to publish Sugar Rush – SO this is how it goes. I do like the surprises in Sugar Rush – and I really like seeing how they all fit together in this ebook as well –

I REALLY thought it was cute in Sugar Rush how Adrian likes the way Ophelia says his name – gives her a little kiss every time she says it J But in CRUSHED – LOL – so cute – he is trying to hard not to like her – but he failed miserably when he first heard her say his name – then got her to say it over and over and over again – Poor Ophelia thought he had poor eye sight and was a little slow (in Calculus ? ) Too cute though – I was a little thrown off with Tristan though – his part in the story didn’t really tell us anything – other then maybe setting it up for Brandon to come into Sugar Rush – that’s the only thing I can think of.

We do see Martian – as his “coming of age” at 18 and he is now obsessed with Ophelia – we learn why in Sugar Rush – but it’s a good set up to see how she felt about him before.

I think this is really a cute story – and it works out both as a first book or a second book – it helps to fill in the blanks for Sugar Rush – and I REALLY REALLY Liked Sugar Rush J
