Release Day Review ~ Sugar Rush (Sugar Bowl #2) by Sawyer Bennett

Book 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.

Note: Sugar Rush ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck's story concludes in Sugar Free!

“Operation Fuck Over JT is now in progress.”

Sugar Rush?? Angst rush, emotional rush, adrenaline rush, suspense rush…OMG rush. Sawyer Bennett is an author that is currently handing out crack candy in the guise of books, this series is seriously addicting and now I am berating myself for reading it so early, because it only means that the wait for Sugar Free is all the longer. The wait is seriously going to kill me.

Sugar Rush continues where Sugar Daddy left off and after that cliff hanger I am glad that Sawyer Bennett puts us out of our misery pretty quickly. With the red mist thoroughly clouding his better judgement, Beckett soon realises the error of his ways after finally getting the grey matter working and having a total mental re-hash of his relationship with Sela. Beckett knows that Sela doesn’t trust easily and now he is even more aware of just how much Sela has given to him mentally, emotionally and sexually. Seeing the error of his ways Beckett is a man on a mission and one where success is the only option.

“I try not to think of Beck, but that’s virtually impossible. He was so many things to me in such a short period of time. He was a new life. A fresh start. A possibility I thought I’d never have. But right now, he’s the man that just broke me.”

Beckett is now in a real predicament, he is stuck between the proverbial rock and a hard place. The love he has for Sela and the friendship that he has for Jonathon, or should I say the friendship that he did have for JT. Beckett’s eyes have been opened and while deep down he knew, it isn’t until the truth finally comes out that Beckett understands the depravity and the lengths that JT would go to, to get what he wants and he no longer likes what he sees.

The Sugar Bowl is Beckett’s baby and with the shit about to hit the fan, Beckett and Sela try to come up with a plan that will save The Sugar Bowl but will ultimately get JT out of their lives for good and justice for Sela and all the other unfortunate women that have fallen prey to JT.

Beckett has to draw on all his resolve to put in an Oscar winning performance to keep up appearances between himself and JT, but even the best made plans go awry and with an unknown entity such as JT expecting the worse should have been where they started.

OMG, Sawyer Bennett, you are one evil, evil, evil woman. As the synopsis says, this is another cliff hanger and if you thought the one from book one was bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet. But, this was a great place to stop and the hooks are well and truly embedded in you by the end. With my jaw on the floor I had to well and truly regroup and try to fathom what the hell I had just read. I actually re-read parts just to make sure I hadn’t missed any details, because with everything unravelling on the pages I found myself reading quicker and quicker just to see what would happen. Once I was convinced I had read it right the first time I just sat back, stunned.

“All I wanted was a quiet life. I always thought I’d be alone because of what happened to me. I never thought there was room in my life for anything other than my anger and misery. But now that’s all changed. You’ve already given me the world.”

I love Sela and Beck and if any couple deserve happiness it is these two, but the predicaments they find themselves in test their budding relationship to its limit. While the air has been cleared and these two are on sure footed ground, until the JT situation is put to rest their relationship remains fragile and I hope to god that they are strong enough to reach the end, unscathed.

Another fantastic instalment and Sugar Freed cannot come soon enough.
