Book Review | Sugar Daddy by Sawyer Bennett (@bennettbooks)


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.

“Sawyer Bennett never fails to deliver heroes I fall hard for and heroines I adore,” raves Violet Duke. Now the 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!

Am I looking at a book with a man who is thirty years her senior? I was hoping not. But this is Sawyer Bennett, and she doesn’t write anything mediocre. The cover looks sweet, and the title interesting.

Sela Halstead is about to get her revenge. She was sixteen years old when the nightmare happened, and it continues to haunt her even now. She didn’t know the identity of her perpetrator except for the tattoo that is forever etched in her memory. The tattoo belonged to Jonathon Townsend, one of the millionaire founder of The Sugar Bowl, a website that matches rich older men with younger women. It was her obsession with revenged that had brought her straight into the vision of tech mastermind of The Sugar Bowl, Beckett North.

Beckett is the brain beneath the successful website. He gets what he wants in business and in bed – but he never mixes the two unlike his partner who has been causing a lot of trouble lately. And then here comes Sela that seemed to spark every fantasy he had. Despite how awesome the sex is, it was more than that for the both of them.  But what if he discovers about her plans for revenge? Would it change everything?

It’s an amazing start to a new series. This was something different and like the rest of her books will hold your interest in no time. Sawyer Bennett knows how to stop your world and keep you glued to her book. Drooling, swooning and mesmerized with each page, and each chapter as the plot uncovers. This book has twists and turns that I never have imagined: some will surprise you, will anger you, or will break you.

Sugar Daddy ends with a powerful and heart-stopping cliffhanger, so you better hold on to your seats, and hope you are patient enough to wait for the next installment in the series.

Book Review | The Debt by Tyler King (@TylerAKing)


Hadley saved my life . . . and I ruined hers

Hadley's my best friend. We share a house, our friends, a life. She knows all my secrets . . . except one. My desperate need for her is inked on my body, it's the best I can do. But Hadley needs to hear the words . . .

Growing up as foster kids, Hadley made me feel whole-sane. And what did I do? I destroyed our chance to be together. I ran out on Hadley when I should have stayed, and something broke between us. Now I'll do anything to fix it.

I'll never leave her again. I won't ever let her feel afraid again. But the more I try to protect her from my pain, the more I just make things worse. I'm terrified that if I tell her everything, she'll never forgive me. I'm even more terrified that it may be too late to make her mine. I have to try to give her what she needs . . . it's a debt I'm determined to repay.

"I can't promise you a happy ending, but I can offer you a happy beginning."

Get your hearts ready – because you are in for an emotional read!

Hadley and Josh had been best friends since they were young and living in the hellish confines of their foster homes. They made it, but not unscathed. They have scars. Scars have marked their souls and kept on haunting them. Their relationship went on, even if they got adopted by different people, they needed each other.

Then one night, everything changed. What should be the start of their happy ending, had caused their relationship to spiral down. Josh ran out, when Hadley needed him most – and it caused a strain in their relationship. Now, they still live in the same house, they still have the same friends, but everything was never the same again.

Will they ever have their happy ending?

I am truly lost for words the moment I finished the book. The characters were totally complex and have been through hell and back. I admire their courage in facing their demons and finally trying to get through life despite everything that they experienced. Yes, they made bad choices, and suffer the consequences of their actions but they are also trying to make up for it.

The people that surround them were truly amazing as well. They are one heck of a support system. One doesn’t need to be related to be called family.

I wanted to add more, but I will be spilling out spoilers if I don’t stop typing!!!

The Debt was a spectacular read. A totally unexpected emotional roller-coaster ride that had my heart ached so badly, I thought I was never going to recover.  Just as when I thought they were in for a happy ending, another thing drops, and I’d once again cross my fingers, hoping for the best. Then finally, it was with great relief that it ended beautifully. Such a heartwarming ending that will sooth the aching of your heart and soul. You should give this one a try!
