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.

Sela Halstead has a terrifying experience. Beckett “Beck” North wants to make things better for her. This current story builds from where Sugar Rush left off. It also brings a conclusion to the Sugar Bowl series. As you start reading you may think that you know how this story is going to go. But if you start with that attitude, you don’t know this author very well. And if you’re starting the series here then you’re missing a lot. It’s also like reading the ending first.
Unless your heart is frozen, you are going to feel something. Our couple has so much weight on their shoulders and this is one thing that has you continuing to read. You don’t want things to end badly for anyone here but the only way you’ll know that is if you continue to read. I personally found it hard to put down. There just never seemed to be the perfect stopping point. I also tended to tune everything out so that I could concentrate on this very complex story.
One thing that I found predictable were the actions of two people out to solve a mystery. But that comes from watching too much television when I was younger. It didn’t stop my enjoyment of the story in any way – just had me thinking of the shows I used to watch. What I was pleased to see was that the reader gets the conclusion to the mystery and Beck, Sela and even Caroline getting their happy ending.
What’s sad is that it’s like losing a friend who’s moved away. Great is that I can’t wait to see what Ms. Bennett has in store for me next. And if I want a reading marathon, I can read this series again without having to wait for another book to come out.

She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.
