“Sawyer Bennett never fails to deliver heroes I fall hard for and heroines I adore,” raves Violet Duke. Now the bestselling author of the Cold Fury series proves that vengeance is sweet—but seduction is to die for.
Sela Halstead lost her innocence in a way that no sixteen-year-old should ever have to endure. She’s spent years trying to forget that night even while wondering about the identities of the monsters who brutalized her—until a telltale tattoo flashes across Sela’s TV screen. The incriminating ink belongs to Jonathon Townsend, the millionaire founder of The Sugar Bowl, a website that matches rich older men with impressionable young women. Obsessed with revenge, Sela infiltrates Townsend’s world, only to come face-to-face with a tantalizing complication: Beckett North, his charismatic business partner.
The tech mastermind behind The Sugar Bowl, Beck always gets what he wants, in business and in bed. And yet, for a man who’s done every dirty thing imaginable, there’s something about the naïve, fresh-faced Sela that sparks his hottest fantasies. Because with her, it’s not just about sex. Beck opens up to her in ways he never has with other girls. So why does he get the feeling that she’s hiding something? In a world of pleasure and power, the shocking truth could turn them against each other—or bind them forever.
Note: Sugar Daddy ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck’s story continues in Sugar Rush and Sugar Free!
New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett is a snarky Southern woman and reformed trial lawyer who decided to finally start putting on paper all of the stories that were floating in her head. Her husband works for a Fortune 100 company that lets him fly all over the world while she stays at home with their daughter and three big, furry dogs who hog the bed.
Bennett would like to report that she doesn’t have many weaknesses but can be bribed with a nominal amount of milk chocolate.
The hardest part I think about reviewing is finding the words to explain why a book inspired such passionate feelings within you as a reader. In this case, I know it’s because the author – Sawyer Bennett – did an incredible job creating characters that I felt truly invested in. So much so, I want to be the passenger in the vehicle that Sela has set on course to run over Jonathon. He’s a freaking monster and I hated him.
I might be starting my review of Sugar Daddy feeling a little bit angry. Not because I didn’t enjoy the book – actually, I freaking loved it. Nope. I’m right ticked off because this book was a cliffhanger and I did not realize it. When I got to the last page, I wanted more. Immediately. I was ready for some ass kicking.
But it wasn’t just vengeance that I wanted because as is much as I hated Jonathon, I adored Beck. That man stole my heart and made me want to go have fictional little babies behind a white picket fence. Not only is he sexy and intelligent but he’s also kind and loyal; although that detail might not necessarily always be working in his favor.
So it left me feeling empty when it ended because their story still had aspects that needed to be told and I did not have that in my hands.
Long review short, I was consumed by this book. Sugar Daddy’s plot was suspenseful and captivating. I was drawn right in to Sela’s mischievous behavior and was hoping she got the results that she so obviously deserved. But the best part about this book is that it isn’t just a story about revenge. It’s also a book about healing and finding love.
Even with the cliffhanger, I would absolutely recommend Sugar Daddy. I wanted Beck and Sela to find solace in one another’s lives. I wanted their happily ever after and that is what makes for a top recommendation from me. I personally can’t wait to read what happens next.
