SUGAR ON THE EDGE
BY USA Today Best-selling Author Sawyer Bennett
Last Call, #3
Adult Contemporary Romance
Releasing July 28, 2014
Although I was looking forward for Cassie’s turn for her HEA, I think Savannah needed hers ASAP. This girl had been through a lot, as what we have learned in book two, but she had survived it all. She didn’t want to go back home after what happened, but here, in North Carolina, her life seems to be falling apart. She lost her dream job, her remaining job is with a boss who is constantly making a pass on her, she had been cleaning homes – not really what she had envisioned herself in. But beggars couldn’t be choosers and that’s probably the best way to describe her currently since she has been finding it hard to make ends meet for quite some time. Nevertheless, you will love her, very much, despite of her awful big pride. Because she never gave up, she strive so hard so that she wouldn’t ask for anyone’s help, and she wouldn’t be in debt to anyone. Which has its pros and cons of course – I mean, her friends are great, really, really great. Sometimes, it’s not a weakness to accept help.
As for Gavin Cooke – there is something attractive with a man who is intelligent and knows how to play with words. But before you swoon, better be warned, that he might be sexy, and the mystery that surrounds him might serve as a magnet to attract but he’s in a dark, dark place. A painful experience from his past had pushed him in there, and the only thing good that came up with it has been his best-selling novel. Now, he’s spending time North Carolina trying to finish the sequel to the novel. He’s bitterness and anger is palpable, he can be rude, he can be definitely annoying he wants too, and he likes his solitude. All he wants is his whiskey and his laptop. Until she came along, his anti-heroine. Only that he didn’t expect that there is more to this woman.
He’s filthy, he takes what he wants, he talks dirty (which was a total turn on) – and Savannah? She’s the romantic type who wants prince charming. They are so different, but the attraction was too powerful to ignore. Day by day it only grew, until they can no longer deny it and both started to give in into their desires. Lust is a powerful emotion, but there is one greatest feeling that both of them are still hesitant to accept. Are both of them strong enough to let go of the past, and accept what the future holds? Or will both of them let go of what might have been the best thing that can happen in their lives?
They were so perfect for each other, and you can feel them falling too. Even the change in Gavin was pretty much amazing. I didn’t know how she handled him, and made him open up a bit, but it was there. Light was beginning to creep up into his world, until something happened that shook it once again. And Gavin broke her heart… OUCH. You’ll want to hate him too, but his grand gesture was pretty much too sweet to ignore, so he’s easily forgiven.
I didn’t think I’d be more in love with this series as I can ever be, UNTIL I read THIS book! Sugar on the Edge had me speechless for quite a while, stunned, a little bit mesmerized, gah, another book hangover for me. This might be my favorite among the three because of its character: a combination of the darkness and light, two people who seems too different but yet similar on some aspects. It’s HOT, it’s RAW, it’s PRIMAL, it’s ROMANTIC, it’s SEXY, and yes, It’s SWEET - it’s SAWYER BENNETT!!!! You will miss half of your life not reading this! So better pick this up right now, settle on your seats, prepare for some extra panties (and yes, batteries) – because this is going to be a one hot exciting ride.
