Seduction has never been so sweet! The New York Timesbestselling author of the Cold Fury series—Alex, Garrett, Zack,and Ryker—returns with the first novel in a hot new trilogy.

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! 

Sela is haunted by her past, seeking vengeance she hopes will set her free. When she can’t get close enough to her target alone, she puts herself close to his business partner, Beck North, in order to get the opening she needs. But as she tries to find an in with JT, she realizes what she has with Beck might be worth more than her need for vengeance.

These two were sexy and smart together. The chemistry was smoking between them, even during their first meeting. Things quickly combusted, leaving both in a new place wondering if there could be more between them. I loved the way Beck treated Sela no differently than if they had met under more traditional circumstances, and didn’t treat her differently because she came from a less affluent background than he.

This story kept me on my toes. From the moment Beck and Sela meet, I couldn’t help but wonder how her secrets would come out, and just what Beck might know about the night that haunts her.

Told in alternating points of view, readers know everything Sela knows about the two men and watch as her feelings toward Beck change, but they also see how Beck’s change as well. As they get to know each other, but as a result of Sugar Daddy and beyond, it became clear that nothing is as clear as either would have it appear.

The cliff at the end was in a perfect spot to leave readers wanting more, wanting that next page, that next interaction. I cannot wait for more from Beck and Sela, especially given the results of those final pages. So many new questions were raised as well as situations that will have consequences.

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is one of those books that you should probably just go in blind then go with the flow. It's by Sawyer Bennett so you know the writing will be engaging and interesting.

Sela Halstead is on a mission of revenge. She has a plan. She has a way in and she has motivation. Her target is J.T. Townsend, the rich, successful owner of an online service called The Sugar Bowl that sets up wealthy Sugar Daddies with young women.

Sela did not plan on Beck North. He is the tech mastermind of the Sugar Bowl, and J.T.'s partner. He does not usually do relationships and is usually a one-and-done kind of guy. But one meeting, then one wild night leads to a connection and an unexpected agreement. But soon their passion and chemistry turns more intimate and real. They are hot, insatiable, sweet, and compatible.

Beck is rich, charming, successful and generous. He's got a good heart and is becoming more open to something real. Sela has already been making changes herself and being with Beck only enhances that positivity. She is feeling respect, support, and comfort with a man.  But she can't forget the past and her mission.

She's got a hidden agenda and Beck does not tolerate liars. And he's got ties and history with her target. It is about to get complicated. And once Beck finds out her secret, she is in danger of losing the one man that has made her feel worthy.

This is unique, intriguing, and sexy. It is sweet at times, but also has some harsh truths and revenge themes. It is told in dual points of view. And the author is clear that it ends in a cliffhanger and this couple has two more books  coming titled Sugar Rush and Sugar Free.
