I loved the characters in this story, Janice is well-respected everyone knows her and she treats all her staff like family, she runs a tight ship. I loved how Janice is such a strong character, But when it comes to her own sex life she is vulnerable and lonely.
Salt works for the UN specifically with working with prostitutes and his mind gets blown when he realises the sexy woman he has been hooking up with is a madam. I love the interaction between Salt and Janice as she tries to show Salt that her operation is about protecting her staff and not abusing them.
This is such a fun read, although there is an undertone on the dark side of prostitution, it doesn’t overwhelm the story and make you feel yucky, it is kept light and fun. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to escape into fantasy for a while.

Janice Cane is the proprietress of the Sugar House, a bordello where the clients are rich, protected and background checked. Catering to men and women, her “brood” is loyal and well-cared for: from medical to security needs. Completely and unapologetically in control, her one lapse is the addiction she has to speed dating.
I didn’t think that I could like Janice as much as I did: in fact I rather loved her. Her comfort with her business and her moments of self-doubt in her thoughts about Salt after meeting him gave her a sense of optimism and hope, even as she shot the ideas down with more pragmatic concerns regarding her past history and current means of support.
Devon Salzmann was intriguing: worldly yet naïve, determined to make an impression but ultimately at that point where sex comes too easily and boredom is omnipresent. Used to getting what he wants, and not finding much intrigue in the easy, he starts a campaign of teasing Janice to achieve another conquest, hardly expecting that he would be on the losing end of their verbal jousts.
Mixing in some incredibly steamy sex scenes that are enhanced by the perspectives given by the points of view from these two experienced and faded characters, the scenes are fantasy inducing moments of spice that are graphic but so utterly in the moment that you hardly notice until you are wiping your brow.
More secondary characters fill out this slice of life story, bringing with them their own histories, scars and depth of loyalty to Janice and her business. Conversations are as if overheard, loyalties and attachments are clearly displayed, and the characters are all people that you want to know more about, and hope for their safety, and cheer on their decisions when they eliminate a particularly nasty client. The mix is gorgeous and unique, with a perspective enhanced by truly evocative writing that makes this a must read for fans of erotica that want something more.
I purchased an eBook copy of the title for my own library. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
Janice aka Ms. Necia has an unusual job. By chance, she encounters “Salt”, who she only knows as “Greenpeace” until they meet again. Both have tried to push love away, but there is something electric and unforgettable between the two of them. But Janice wonders what Salt will feel when he knows about her real line of work. And there are surprises about Salt that will shock her. Can the two of them fight their circumstances? Can love conquer all?
I recommend this novella to those who enjoy erotic romance. The love story is an unusual and creative one. Tyler has composed a story that kept me turning the pages.
I really loved the main couple introduced in the story (Janice and Salt), and while I love them being together, I want to smack Salt (you'll have to read it to understand why.) It's rather interesting how I also became attached to secondary characters Portia and Jackson. I certainly hope that they're going to have a story all of their own. I look forward to getting the next book in the series.
Pavarti Tyler is an author who's become one of my 'must buy' and one-clicks.
Sugar & Salt is a novella, an introduction to a series. It fell a little short for me, as I wanted more from each main character. The secondary characters had a lot going on. I felt more of their time could have been given over to Salt & Janice.
