Seduction has never been so sweet! The New York Times bestselling author of the Cold Fury series—Alex, Garrett, Zack, and Ryker—returns with the first novel in a hot new trilogy.
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!
Sugar Daddy (Sugar Bowl #1)
by Sawyer Bennett
I had an overwhelming desire to kick a fictional character in the ding ding.
This book made me want to have the ability to shoot fireballs from eyes at my kindle. But see, I like my kindle and I don’t want to hurt my kindle. But I really didn’t like what I was reading on my kindle. Sugar Daddy is one of those books that I love to hate…or is it…hate to love?
Throughout the book, I disliked all three main characters at one time or another. One of those three stood out from the others. I absolutely, truly ruly, despised, hated and abhorred Jonathon Townsend. I hated JT enough that it almost turned me off the book. He is manipulative, evil, arrogant and disgusting. My hate for him stems from his ability to manipulate those around him with smarmy words, money, and a “good name”. What he gets away with is a crime. His character’s depravity sees no bounds and I don’t think there is anything he won’t do to get his way.
Sela has a desire for revenge that gets a little sidetracked and almost derailed. She never planned on falling for the best friend. Will her desire and happiness replace her need to see the man who ruined her life, suffer? Can she leave her past behind and find love with Beck?
Beck wants his company to succeed but is struggling with the truths laid out in front of him. Does he believe his girlfriend of a few weeks over the man who is and has been his best friend for years and who is also his business partner?
Will the one man who has the power, money and influence to separate them succeed?
Even up to the very last page I wanted to hate this story, but, how can you hate something that has your undivided attention with every turn of the page? How can you turn your back on a story that sees you wanting to murder fictional characters?
Do I want Sela and Beck to get an HEA? Do I want JT to be dealt with? Does Beck deserve a kick in the ding ding too for being a douchewaffle at the end of the book? YES!!!!
Sugar Daddy left me with a thirst for violence, a desire for revenge and a need to mete out justice.
