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!
This is the middle story and going into it, you as the reader, know it's not going to end well. But even with that I cringed when Sela did something so dumb...seriously, NO!! This book was that moment in the movie where everyone is screaming at the screen, "Don't do it!" It was so obvious at that point in time that the heroine was totally making the wrong choice, it just about killed me...and lowered my rating because I hate it when the heroine becomes too stupid to live. Even though I do still really love the overall story and get that this book had to have that drama. I just wish it could have happened with a bit more creativity by the author.
But beyond all that, Sela and Beck's story is wonderfully captivating. I love the two of them together. There is just so much passion between them. I literally did not put the book down after I started reading it.
This is definitely not a series that you can read just one book out of. Each book immediately flows into the next and each book besides the final ends on a cliffhanger. But you know that going into it, so it's not such a blow mentally when the book just ends. Luckily there's not a huge section of time between the books releasing. I highly recommend this series, because I'm really enjoying it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
