“This book devastated me in the most wonderful way,” raves Meredith Wild. In Sugar Daddy, the New York Times 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!
I had yet to read a book by Sawyer Bennett before Sugar Daddy, and I have to say I wasn't disappointed at all. First can I just say I absolutely adore the names, Sela & Beck. I loved seeing fun and original names in books. For me, it helps to define the characters. Because if it was just a Jessica or a Michael, we've all seen names or met people with those names, but fresh different names really help to definite and create a character because you don't have any biased opinions. OK! Enough on that! LOL As you can tell I loved the names.
The characters really made this book for me. Beck was... how can you find the right word! DELICIOUS. SEXY. His heart. It was pure and sweet. That man was EVERYTHING.. Sela was a woman out for revenge from something that has plagued her for a long time. She was determined, and strong. She was real. Something that is very hard to find in characters.
This story is completely different than what I was expecting. I was expected a love story with just a few bumps but this was so much more. It was action packed and fast paced. I honestly didn't even read the blurb when I signed up to review this book, the cover is what 100% drew me in. Don't go in blind thinking this book will wrap up in one. NO! It ends with a doozy of a cliffhanger. I can't wait to see where Beck & Sela's story is going to take them next.
I thoroughly enjoyed Sawyer Bennett's writing and this for sure won't be my last book by her!
