Sela and Beck’s deliciously sinful tale of sex, lies, and vengeance reaches its explosive conclusion in the final chapter of Sawyer Bennett’s Sugar Bowl trilogy, which began with the novels Sugar Daddy and Sugar Rush.
For years Sela Halstead dreamed of revenge, but the quest for payback has been anything but sweet. Now, once again, she finds herself at the mercy of Jonathon Townsend, his hands crushing the very breath from her body. And even though she escapes with her life, Sela fears she may never recover. In desperate need of shelter and comfort, she runs to the one man she can trust. Beckett North has stood by Sela since the beginning. But can he handle the brutal truth?
Beck will do anything to protect what is his—and make no mistake, Sela belongs to him, heart and soul. The passion between them runs hot, even as their world begins to unravel. With the legacy of his ruthless business partner hanging in the balance, Beck stands to lose everything: his fortune, his family, his freedom. But each touch of Sela’s mouth on his skin, her nails down his back, makes it harder to let her go—and it might not even be his choice to make.
My, my! This book is so good and a worthy conclusion of this series! I enjoyed every chapter and the plot twists, perfectly done! I dare to say that in this book the drama and angst are more present than in the previous two books but that’s exactly what makes this story so great. I simply loved it! The fact that I’ve read the whole series in just two days is proof of that! And don’t even get me started on the characters! Now we truly get to see their real personalities, especially Beck’s parents, if they can even be called that! Beck sister and her daughter are such a blessing to both Beck and Sela and I’m so happy for both of them to have such fantastic people in their lives because they really deserve to have them. And of course, Beck and Sela, wow where to even start. In this story everything that can go wrong…goes wrong, yes! Every choice has it’s consequences! The ones of you who’ve read the previous book know that the cliffy is a mayor one and it’s also a nasty one, since we all know what that means for Beck and Sela’s plans. They crumble into ashes and the whole world is there to watch it happen. Those two have to go through so much and my heart just broke for them. Their journey to get their HEA is a long one and there were times when I thought they weren’t going to make BUT I should have known better. Their bond is so strong that nothing and no one can break it and they also prove that throughout the whole story. Least but not last, there were some characters that I though were just horrible people, if you’ve read the book you’ll know exactly who I mean by that. I felt like they weren’t even doing their jobs right and only looked after themselves. In the end I’m happy how the whole story turned out and my gosh, the epilogue just stole the freaking show for me. It’s done so well and we not only get to see the characters a few months into their future lives, no, we get to see them in various time lapses and that really gave the book the satisfying ending that it needed, at least in my opinion.
All in all, this whole series is amazing and I definitely recommend it to everyone!
