“The complete truth is out, and now it’s time to destroy JT.”
‘Sugar Rush’, the second installment in Sawyer Bennett’s ‘Sugar Bowl’ series was as intriguing, steamy, suspenseful as its predecessor. Since ‘Sugar Daddy’, the previous installment ended with a cliffhanger I was more than eager to read this one and find out how Sela and Beck’s relationship will progress. To be honest I find this installment to be more intriguing in some way than the previous installment. The multitude of twists and turns and the fact that everything that happened with these characters took me on a rollercoaster of emotions kept me glued to the pages from the beginning until the end.
“When I gave my full trust to you, I knew that you were more important than my revenge.”
‘Sugar Rush’ starts right where the previous installment ended. Beck finally found out what Sela was hiding from him all this time, he found out her biggest secret, the secret that has the power to destroy their relationship. If at first Beck doesn’t really know what to do about Sela and about her secret, he realizes in a very short amount of time not only that Sela tells the truth about J.T, but also that he feels so much more for Sela than he initially thought. When he finds out the entire truth about what happened with Sela ten years ago, Beck starts to open his heart in more than one way. All he wants now is comfort Sela, to care for her and also help her plan her revenge, wanting as much as Sela to take down the enemy.
“He was a new life.
A fresh start.
A possibility I thought I’d never have.
But right now, he’s the man who just broke me.”
I really enjoyed this second installment! I loved the intrigue, the suspense and the remarkable way the plot unfolded. Once again the plot was well-developed, enthralling and kept me at the edge of me seat the entire time. Needless to say I enjoyed how the story progressed and I loved how the two main characters’ relationship evolved. I liked the two characters individually, but I have to say I loved them as a couple. Sela was vulnerable in a very endearing way, but also so strong and determined at times, I couldn’t help but admire her. As for Beck, well…to be honest he really frustrated me at some point into the story, but he grew on me since he proved several times s the story unfolded that he’s the perfect man for Sela.
“Keep your eye on the prize, Beck. Sela’s the prize.”
For a good part of the story Sela and Beck were simply great as a couple. I adored the way they loved each other. It was wonderful and really heartwarming. I loved how their connection deepens in this installment and once again the intense chemistry between them was fantastically done.
This second installment ends with a huge cliffhanger who for me it was even worse than the one from the previous installment. I’m dying to read the third and final installment and find out how Sela and Beck’s story will end.
