Book Review: Sugar Daddy by Sawyer Bennett

May 24, 2016

Seduction has never been so sweet! The New York Timesbestselling 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!


" All of life is filled with doubt. All of us make calculated risks in our choices" 

Once again, I'm left with another cliffhanger! I swear this is not my week and all I want to do right now is beg this author for part two. How could you leave it that way?!

Ten years ago on her sixteenth birthday, Sela's world was forever changed. Her innocence was stolen brutally and since then she's never recovered. While at home watching tv, she sees a tattoo and immediately recognizes that it belongs to one of her attackers. While her life hasnt been all that great for the past few years, his life has been nothing but smooth sailing. Becoming a millionaire and having one of the most profitable company, getting any woman that he wants, her attacker Johnathon has been the fortunate one. But that's about to change because Sela is now determined to get revenge and make him pay for what he did.

Disguising herself as a "Sugar Baby", Sela puts her plan in motion to get close to Johnathon. But things doesn't go as planned and she meets his best friend and bussiness partner Beck.Moving on to plan B, Sela makes it known that she wants him even if it's only for one night. Beck doesn't do relationships and the only consern he has right now is trying to keep his longtime friend out of trouble while cutting bussiness ties with him. He knows Johnathon is a loose cannon sometimes but with years worth of friendship, Beck is trying to salvage their relationship proffesionally and personally. What became a number priority soon took a back burner the minute he meets Sela. How can one woman turn his world upside down in the space of twenty four hours.

What starts out as an act of revenge soon becomes something more fullfilling for Sela and Beck. Little by little her hardened layers begin to evaporate and she embraces the one thing she's been running from all those years.A connection with someone. Being able to trust and give yourself completely without fear and shame. These are the things that Sela has missed out on and having Beck show her what it's like to be loved appreciated is something that she would never forget. I loved how conflicted she felt with her new found feelings because it showed she was human. Sela tried so hard to build this wall around her and not let anyone in but Beck managed to find a way and he just made her life better.

"I realized that intimacy is actually something that I could learn to crave with a man like Beckett North and that I've only just begun to discover the true potential inside of myself". 

This was a quick enjoyable read and if it wasn't for that cliffhanger, I would've liked it a hell of a lot more. Aside from that, I can't wait for "Sugar Rush" because I know sh*t is gonna go down! If you love a sexy read with a bit of revenge and drama to it, then this book is definitely for you.
