Jackson I can't believe she broke off our engagement for a guy she doesn't even know. Now the only thing I want to do is screw around with women, not opening up or giving my heart away again. After all, what's the point?But it's been months, and I'm lonely and tired of playing the field. This isn't like me. I just want a good girl to spend the rest of my life with. Where is she? If only there was someone in my life who could be the one...

Paige I've been in love with Jackson for as long as I can remember, but he's been with his fiancée since we've met. Now that she's out of his life, I need to figure out a way to get him to notice me as more than just his good friend and co-worker. It's almost Valentine's Day, and someone thought it would be funny to send him a candy gram on my behalf from a company called Single Status, bringing singles together on the loneliest day of the year. Am I going to be able to pull this off without looking like a moron, or will this turn into the disaster I'm afraid it will when he realizes this was all part of a scheme to get us together? ----------------------------------------------------------------------- This Valentine's Day, being single is all the rage. At least that's what the website, Single Status, says and they're not trying to set you up with your special someone. But, instead, give you the time of your life. Sign up a family member, a friend or join yourself. Single Status will send an anonymous letter with details of an activity for the day. #ValentinesDayIsntJustForCouples Read stories from 13 of your favorite authors in this brand new Valentine's series.

Sugar Rush is the second book in the Single On Valentine’s Day series. You do not need to read the first book Seven Minutes in Heaven to read Sugar Rush.

Office Romances aren’t really my favorite trope. I haven’t found one that makes me really love this trope so you have recs please send them my way. This also includes friends to lovers trope, which is one of my favorite tropes EVER. And this one was pretty well done.

Just like Seven Minutes In Heaven, Sugar Rush takes place around Valentine’s Day. Now I’m not sure if they all are taking place in the same time period or if they are in different years but other than being involved in the same series and the central idea of Single Status (the dating service for singles on Valentine’s day) I feel like you can read the entire series in any order. I don’t think you’ll miss anything.

Sugar Rush gave us another cool aspect of Single Status. I honestly think this is a cool concept and I think this author executed the story pretty well.

Sugar Rush is about Jackson and Paige. Both are lawyers and coworkers. They are the best friend’s. Jackson had his heart broken years ago (we get a flashback of this in the story) when his fiancé broke up with him for a guy she just met. Paige was always there for him. The story progresses and they are still great friends and you can tell they have some attraction to each other.

Paige’s friend is tired of the games that Jackson and Paige are playing so she takes it upon herself to sign them up for Single Status. She sends Jackson a candy gram to arrange a date at Jackson’s and Paige’s favorite spot for some painting and dinner. I thought this date idea was cute!

I really loved Jackson and Paige. I thought they were both sweet/ caring characters. I did feel like Jackson was a little clueless and took him time to realize that Paige’s attraction to him.

This was only 76 pages and that is kind of crazy to me! This was such a good story and developed effortlessly that it didn’t feel like a short read. Honestly, I wish it was longer because I loved Paige and Jackson so much. I’d love to read more about them. This could definitely be expanded. Again, if you like quick easy romances this would be a great read for you.
