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.

my thoughts

The heavily anticipated conclusion to Beck and Sela’s story is here!!! This sizzling, suspenseful, and powerful romantic suspense had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough…I couldn’t catch my breath quick enough…my heart wanted to beat right out of my chest. I freaking LOVED every second of it! The Sugar Bowl series is an absolute favorite of mine!

Beck’s love for Sela is astounding! No matter what choices Sela makes, he is right by her side, loyal to a fault.

The cliffhanger that Bennett left us with in the previous book had my heart in my throat. SUGAR FREE jumps right back in to the chaos that Sela has created. She may have thought she was ready for the consequences, but now that Beck has embedded himself in her heart, she second guesses every choice that she has ever made. Beck would follow Sela through hell and back and the guilt of bringing him into her plan tears at her every single day.

When vengeance is had, the reward is empty. She wasn’t prepared for it and neither was Beck, but he will do whatever it takes, even risking himself, to keep Sela whole. This book…this series hit me HARD! I ached for these characters on every possible level. I rooted for them every step of the way. There are so many obstacles in their way…and after the main one is eliminated, the blowback is substantial and their love takes a hit. How far will Beck go for the woman he loves?  The answer is…pretty DAMN far!

If you’ve never given Sawyer Bennett a try, the SUGAR BOWL series is a great place to start! You will be enamored by her writing and you will fall in love with her characters instantly. The intensity…the passion…the explosive chemistry is just the tip of the iceberg with Sela and Beck. Experience their story from the beginning and FALL IN LOVE with the SUGAR BOWL series!
