I’m just realizing I never wrote a single review for Sugar Daddy or Sugar Rush, although I did talk about them in some of my other posts, so there is that. So now that I am done with this series, I’ll just give a short review on the books.
Published May 24th 2016 by Loveswept
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.
I read Sugar Daddy, because of the name and the blurb and it was such a quick read, I wasn’t expecting to like it, so I was more than pleased that I loved reading it, the problem is I went into it without realizing it was a series and I had to wait months for the story to end, I don’t like reading series that aren’t completed… I wait till they are finished not to torture myself. That’s why I love standalones.
The ending was such a huge cliffhanger and I was like noooooooooo, I really was in shock days later and started googling how to get arc’s but I was super unsuccessful and then I saw people reviewing the three books in the series, when the second book hadn’t even come out. TORTURE.
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.
Then I got my hands finally on Sugar Rush when it came out, I dragged out reading it because I didn’t want to wait so long, but I ended up finishing it in August. This time Sela and Beck relationship becomes more pronounced and they fall in love and blah blah blah and think of a way to exact revenge and get away with it… but at the end all hell breaks loose and all their planning and shenanigans go out of the window.

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.
Sugar Free. This is a watered-down version of How to Get Away with Murder. It’s all about the police and truths seeing the light of day, it’s about closure for Sela and Beck, and us the readers. This book is very satisfying to read, and extremely fun despite how bleak things got. I finished with Sela and Beck’s story today and I’m quite happy with their happily ever after.
I don’t like writing spoiler reviews, I rarely do that. Infact I don’t even include blurbs, but I’ve started doing so now, in order for people to understand my reviews better. Thank you for taking your time to read this review! Please leave a comment below, love talking to you lots. If you’re a fan of romance, with a dark-crime twist this series is for you. You’ll even enjoy it more if you read the three altogether because you don’t have to wait at all, the story will just flow smoothly without a break.
I give this series
