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!

Review

HOLY MOTHER OF ALL F*ING CLIFFHANGERS!!! I knew it was coming. Sawyer Bennett clearly identifies in BOLD that Sugar Rush ends on a cliffhanger. Yet, it still managed to keep me on the edge of my seat until the last second and then rock my world. After which I proceeded to curse like a damn sailor, pace up and down the room and body slam my kindle.

Sugar Rush picks up right after Sugar Daddy ends. If you haven’t read Sugar Daddy, just stop right now and go read it. Not only will you not completely follow but you will miss a lot of back history between Beck and Sela. I’m not going to recap anything from this book because it directly ties into events that happen in book one. Instead, I will continue to rant about my new found love obsession with both Beck and Sela.

I’m so invested in these two and their story. Let me start with Beck. Could he get any better? Sure, he made a pretty heavy mistake and hurt Sela more than he could ever imagine but he did everything in his power to make sure she knew that he was there for her. That he loved her.

“Everything I do is with the idea in mind of solidifying my future with her.”

Who wouldn’t want someone in their life like that? In Sugar Daddy we learn how strong and fierce Sela is. She was full of anger and seeking revenge. She was blinded by hatred. Then Beck came into her life and that tough exterior started to crumble piece by piece. In this book, we get to see a more vulnerable side of her. A side that many people can relate to.

“I need you to show me that you believe I’m strong, and beautiful, and as tough as bricks. If you don’t believe that about me, I won’t believe it about myself.”

It’s so raw and honest. Exactly like the way their relationship has turned since they first started.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It’s a bit raw, a bit angsty and a bit heartbreaking. There are plot twists in here that will keep you on your seat. It’s a quick read with one hell of a cliffhanger. I absolutely cannot wait to read Sugar Free and find out the rest! Well done, Sawyer. If I wasn’t fully invested after Sugar Daddy (I was) then I absolutely am now.
