Description

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.

    NOOOOO!!! Oh my god the ending can't just, oh it did....Oh the book just rips through every emotion. Laughter, tears, fear, anxiety...so much more. Sawyer has been my favorite author for a few books now. Each character has so much reality, depth, emotions.

    Disclaimer: ARC received in exchange for an honest review. Sugar Rush, Sawyer Bennett's second installment in her Sugar Bowl series, picks up exactly where Sugar Daddy leaves off. What's great about this is that the immediate issue at hand is resolved fairly quickly, leaving room for Bennett to continue to weave tighter the tangled web that is story of Sela, Beck, JT, Caroline, and co. Once the cliffhanger is neutralized and some of the truth is exposed, certain story elements begin to fall into place, giving still-fuzzy sight to the bigger picture. But the smoke and mirrors of mistaken memories, lies, deceit, and betrayal are unyielding, and for every question Bennett answers, many more are raised and left unresolved setting up more of the story to come. Every single detail is deliberately, purposefully, and meticulously plotted, creating significant storyline payoffs. The pacing is swift and exciting, the novel a heart-racing triumph, leaving the reader gasping as the book draws to a close. The cliffhanger will leave readers sitting up begging for Sugar Free, which is sure to be a riveting conclusion to this brilliantly-crafted series. The Sugar Bowl series is unlike anything I've ever read. It's dark, gripping, suspenseful and compelling, yet it still manages to be sweet, romantic, and thrilling, and much like its predecessor, Sugar Rush meets every single of the criterion.
  • Fantastic!

    Wow! Fantastic! There is so much going on in this one I couldn't put it down. With so much passion, suspense and intrigue the story is riveting. You will not want to miss this series. Sawyer Bennett takes us on quite a journey with twists and turns that keep you guessing what will happen next. And believe me I didn't see this cliffhanger ending coming. Love Beck and Sela's romance and their scorching sex scenes. But was enthralled with his compassion and sweet ways with Sela. Totally in love with Beck. Loved it! Highly Recommended! Received a ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
  • Awesome Series!!

    Sugar Rush This is the 2nd Book in the Sugar Rush series. I was so grateful for an early copy so I could find out what happened next! This book starts right where it left off. Beck has just kicked out Sela after finding her in his office going through his file cabinets. Just as he pushed her out the door she blurts out that JT raped her but he doesn't believe her. After contemplating all the things that's happened in the time they've spent together, he realizes that she had to be telling the truth. What has he done?! He searches for a few hours and he finally tracks her down at her dads. After begging her to forgive him, they return back home and come up with a plan to take JT down. Beck must keep up the act of being friend and work partner. He'll do anything in his power to make this right for Sela. This book ends with another cliffhanger and I hate that I have to wait until October to get the conclusion!! Intense ending!! I can't wait to read more!! I received an early copy via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review!

    Another twisty, suspenseful masterpiece from Sawyer Bennett! I loved the second book as much as the first and I can't wait for the finale! I was left with my mouth hanging open. Some questions were answered and more arose. Beck and Sela are incredible characters, and I can't wait to see how it all wraps up!
  • Had me gripped from the start!

    Wow! Just wow! This book had me hooked! I couldn’t stop reading it. I really liked Sugar Daddy, but Sugar Rush was even more intense! The chemistry between Sela and Beck was off the charts! JT makes his presence felt and he hits new lows and is as despicable as ever! He is such a low life! He is a character you just love to hate! I have so much to tell you, but it would ruin the whole thing, so I am not going to give anything away! You really have to read it! If you don’t like cliffhangers then wait until all three books are out, but please don’t miss out on this series. There are so many plot twists and it was just so captivating! There is so much going on. Holy crap how things came together and how the plot unfolded! That ending! Geez! I thought the first one left us in the lurch! I loved this book! It took me on a wild ride and I can’t wait for Sugar Free!

    Bennett does it again, but this time the suspense is more intense, secrets start unraveling, and lives that were not connected before have more in common than they ever thought they could. The Rush begins where the first book left us. Beck has an A-HA moment where he starts to understand Sela a little more, he sees with clarity where her desire for revenge is coming from. And Sela now has an ally, one that will fight next to her and for her until she's been avenged. Not only is the storyline of this book one that is intricate, but the characters have many layers to them, intensifying the developing of the plot. I dare say, Sela is one of the strongest female characters I've ever read, her story is heartbreaking, part of her past is still in the shadows since she doesn't remember exactly what happened that horrible night that changed her life, but through it all she got stronger. Sela has a spirit that not too many people are blessed to have, she didn't let her past define her, she went through hard times (understandably,) but she got up again and now her fighting soul is what prevails. For someone who never wrote cliffhangers before, Sawyer Bennett has become the queen of them in my eyes, if you thought the cliffy in the first book was bad, wait until you get to the end of this one, it will blow your mind and leave you asking for mercy (or the next and last book.) This is hands down the best series I've ever read. The author pour her heart and soul into the writing of these books and it shows.
