Sela and Beck’s deliciously sinful tale of sex, lies, and vengeance reaches its explosive conclusion in the final chapter of Sawyer Bennett’s Sugar Bowl trilogy, which began with the novels Sugar Daddy and Sugar Rush.

For years Sela Halstead dreamed of revenge, but the quest for payback has been anything but sweet. Now, once again, she finds herself at the mercy of Jonathon Townsend, his hands crushing the very breath from her body. And even though she escapes with her life, Sela fears she may never recover. In desperate need of shelter and comfort, she runs to the one man she can trust. Beckett North has stood by Sela since the beginning. But can he handle the brutal truth?

Beck will do anything to protect what is his—and make no mistake, Sela belongs to him, heart and soul. The passion between them runs hot, even as their world begins to unravel. With the legacy of his ruthless business partner hanging in the balance, Beck stands to lose everything: his fortune, his family, his freedom. But each touch of Sela’s mouth on his skin, her nails down his back, makes it harder to let her go—and it might not even be his choice to make.


I absolutely love this series and while I’m super excited with the way that Sela and Beck’s story ends, I hate that it is the end. I have been completely swept away with this series and I couldn’t recommend it enough.

Sugar Free is the third and final installment of the Sugar Bowl Series. If you have been living under a rock for a while and haven’t heard of it yet, please, stop reading and pick up book 1. This book cannot be read as a standalone and while I will do my best to not spoil anything for anyone, it is possible that something from earlier books could be spoiled.

This book picks up right after book 2, Sugar Rush, which ends on one mother of all cliffhangers. After being left hanging, the anticipation was boiling at an all time high. I was dying to find out what happens, so when you start this book you are right back to that adrenaline rush of being in the heart of one insane roller coaster.

Sela and Beck’s journey in this book is heart-wrenching and emotional but always hopeful. The love that these two have for each other is absolutely undeniable. They share a bond that some people will never be able to experience. Throughout the whole book, both of them show so much strength, love, vulnerability and overall loyalty.

In an attempt to keep this spoiler free, I’m just going to end this with how much I love Beck. Don’t get me wrong, I think Sela is one strong, bad-ass woman but there’s just something about Beck that calls me like a sailor to a siren. Role reversal at it’s best! 🙂 In this book, Beck is faced with situations that really shows not only how loyal he is to Stella but it shows more of his vulnerability. While he remains strong and supportive throughout their troublesome times, there are moments when he is vulnerable and everything about him is just so honest and raw. Add that to the fact that he does everything in his power to let everyone know and see just how much he loves Sela and he’s one of my all time favorite swoon worthy heroes.

“I remember every smile you’ve brought to my face, Sela. And I can’t wait for tomorrow because I’ll know you’ll do it again.”

Overall, I loved this book and the series and felt happy with the way it ended. As I’ve already said, I cannot recommend them enough. They will go down as some of my top books of the year. Don’t miss out! Start them now.
