Book Review : Sugar Daddy (Sugar Bowl, #1) by Sawyer Bennett
Sugar Bowl, #1 by Sawyer Bennett Release Date: May 24th, 2016 Genres: Contemporary Romance Suspense Publisher: Loveswept Add to Goodreads Synopsis: 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. 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!
Sawyer Bennett is an author that guarantees her readers a good story. I automatically read a book when I see her name on it. Sugar Daddy is somewhat different than the other stories that she has written. Whereas her other stories are strictly contemporary romance, this story adds a ton of suspense and has you biting your nails, as you wait to see how everything will unfold.
In Sugar Daddy, we meet the main character, Sela Halstead. She has trouble in her relationships as far as intimacy is concerned. Sela cannot find pleasure in physical acts, due to the fact that her innocence was taken when she was violently gang raped at the age of sixteen. When Sela see's one of the men that raped her on a television commercial, the thought for vengeance begins to take root.
The man that took her innocence and forever ruined her chances at true intimacy is Jonathan "JT" Townsend. He is now a successful multi-millionaire and the co-owner of The Sugar Bowl, a matchmaking service that puts older well-off "Sugar Daddies" with "Sugar Babies," young and beautiful women interested in men with money.
Sela gives herself a complete make-over and signs herself up to be a "Sugar Baby." However, instead of attracting the attentions of J.T., Sela attracts his business partner, Beckett North. The plot thickens, when Sela makes the decision to use Beckett as a means to learn more about J.T. However, plans go awry when Sela see's what a good man Beckett is, and begins to fall in love with him.... Sugar Daddy had me on the edge of my seat, especially at the end! Wow, what a cliffhanger! The way Ms. Bennett ended the story was excruciating, and has me dying to read the next installment. While Sugar Daddy is very different from Ms. Bennett's previous books, it is no less entertaining, sensual, and tantalizing! What a great read!!!
I give, Sugar Daddy, by Sawyer Bennett, 4 Seductive Revenge, Sexual Awakening, Falling in Love, Tough Decision Filled Stars! I am eagerly anticipating the next story in the Sugar Bowl Series, Sugar Rush! This series promises to be fantastic, if I am to base it on this first book! For readers who love a great romantic suspense, filled with erotica, and entertaining characters, check out Sugar Daddy!
