Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


“This book devastated me in the most wonderful way,” raves Meredith Wild. In Sugar Daddy, the New York Times bestselling author of the Cold Fury series proves that vengeance is sweet—but seduction is to die for.

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!

My Thoughts:

Almost from the beginning it seems that Sela has an agenda but she hadn’t counted on meeting Beck.  Beck seems to be a man of business but that was before he met Sela.  You can almost feel the chemistry from the time that these two meet.  But the story is much more then that.  Sela has so much emotion and her past has a part in that.

This is a book that gives voice to those women that have been sexually abused by a man.  Sela has decided that it’s time to stop being a victim and in order to do that she wants to go after the man that has caused her pain.  But she hadn’t counted on finding the one man who can help her make her pain part of her past.  I don’t think that if you go through something like that you will ever forget but wouldn’t it be nice to replace good memories for bad.

For me, this book was darker than some of this author’s other books.  But I think that this one makes you think more, especially if you’ve never been in a domestic violence situation.  It also makes you worry if you have a loved one going off to college.  Some readers are more sensitive about certain subjects so you may want to think about that before picking up a copy.  This could be a good incentive to make a donation of some kind to a woman’s shelter.

If you’re willing to take the chance, you may find that you get lost in the story.  It’s a story where you just don’t know what Sela is going to do.  A mystery that you will soon see that you need to solve and the only way to do that would be to continue to read.  And the author creates a very emotional ending that will leave you ready to see what Sugar Rush has in store for us.
