Review: Sugar Rush (Sugar Bowl #2) by Sawyer Bennett

In the steamy and suspenseful sequel to Sugar Daddy (“A totally gripping take on romance and revenge!”—Lauren Blakely), a heartbreaking rift threatens to unravel a dangerous alliance . . . and a fragile new love.

After posing as an escort for the Sugar Bowl online dating service, Sela Halstead is looking for one thing: payback. She's closing in on the site's heartless founder, Jonathon Townsend, and she needs Beckett North, Townsend's business partner and her lover, by her side. She'd thought that their intimate nights together had forged an unbreakable bond, but after a shocking betrayal, Sela begins to doubt the brilliant bad boy. When push comes to shove, can she trust Beck to do the right thing?

Now that he understands the truth, Beck will stop at nothing to secure the reckoning Sela deserves. But between his desire for her and his disgust for JT, Beck doesn't exactly have a lot of control over his emotional state. Left with no other choice, he must summon all his discipline to maintain JT's trust and pretend that they're still friends. But how far will Beck go to prove his loyalty to Sela? He nearly lost her once. To keep her, Beck might have to kill for her.

Note: Sugar Rush ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck's story concludes in Sugar Free!

I was in dire shape a few months back thinking I was missing my usually epic summer read, when all along it was here in the Sugar Bowl series. After that cliffy in the last book, I was fit to burst waiting for Sugar Rush to come out. Finally got it and before you know it I was back in Sela and Beck’s world! I completely devoured it in one day.

As to be expected, Sugar Rush starts off exactly where Sugar Daddy ended with Sela blurting out what had happen to her, Beck angry and not believing her slamming the door in her face. Sela hasn’t survived the past ten years for nothing so she picks herself up and leaves struggling to figure out what to do next. As for Beck, he is sitting behind a closed door seething in anger. And then he thinks… And he puts the puzzle pieces together… And then he gets it… Get ready for some serious self-butt kicking and groveling as he rushes off to find Sela. They kiss, they make up, and truths come out in all their horrible details.

As I was reading, I was beginning to feel Sugar Rush didn’t quite have the oomph that the previous book had. That exciting novelty was somehow dimmed as Sela and Beck worked out their problems and formulated together a plan to get JT out of their lives. We’re getting to learn there are more to all the characters than meets the eye. Less sex, less excitement, more emotions and I was beginning to feel compliant in the story. But then we begin so see there’s quite a few ugly secrets that come to light, and quite a few are breath takers! Breath takers…yeah right, Try more like HOLY @#$%!!! No way! How did I not see that coming! When I thought the ick factor around JT just couldn’t get any worse. This I couldn’t begin to imagine it.

Of course, all the good jaw dropping stuff happens at the end because now we have to drop the curtain and queue the cliffy. I’m not as screaming mad this time around because I anticipated an edge of your seat ending. Folks, it’s a good one. I can hear the sinister music playing in the background. My brain is percolating seeing so many ways things can go. Man, I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
