In the steamy and suspenseful sequel to Sugar Daddy (“A totally gripping take on romance and revenge!”—Lauren Blakely), a heartbreaking rift threatens to unravel a dangerous alliance . . . and a fragile new love.
After posing as an escort for the Sugar Bowl online dating service, Sela Halstead is looking for one thing: payback. She’s closing in on the site’s heartless founder, Jonathon Townsend, and she needs Beckett North, Townsend’s business partner and her lover, by her side. She’d thought that their intimate nights together had forged an unbreakable bond, but after a shocking betrayal, Sela begins to doubt the brilliant bad boy. When push comes to shove, can she trust Beck to do the right thing?
Now that he understands the truth, Beck will stop at nothing to secure the reckoning Sela deserves. But between his desire for her and his disgust for JT, Beck doesn’t exactly have a lot of control over his emotional state. Left with no other choice, he must summon all his discipline to maintain JT’s trust and pretend that they’re still friends. But how far will Beck go to prove his loyalty to Sela? He nearly lost her once. To keep her, Beck might have to kill for her.
Note: Sugar Rush ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck’s story concludes in Sugar Free!
Do you enjoy a healthy about of suspense with your romance? If so, I think you’ll love Sugar Rush, the second book in Sawyer Bennett’s Sugar Bowl series. It’s like book crack for an angst addict with an insane amount of tension and devious scheming that keeps you on the edge of your seat. This book is not a standalone. The beginning of Sugar Rush overlaps with the final seconds of Sugar Daddy’s ending.
I took every negative thought I had about Beck in the previous book and threw it out the window. The man grovels well, and I fell more and more in love with him as the story progresses. Sela completely earned my respect as the extent of her brutal attack is finally revealed. Her strength, intelligence, and determination are so admirable.
Sela and Beck’s relationship undergoes something of a transformation, becoming sweet and nurturing while still maintaining their extremely passionate connection. The two are a formidable team, even while wrestling with questions of morality and trust. Some of their choices are questionable, but I still enjoyed the heck out of this installment.
There are plot twists that will blow your mind, and if the previous cliffhanger left you stunned, you ain’t seen nothing yet. This intense and unpredictable book firmly wraps the reader in a constant state of intrigue and anxiety and then leaves you free falling. I can’t wait to dive into Sugar Free—the conclusion of this addictive series.
