(Synopsis) 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.

Sugar Rush picks up moments after Sugar Daddy left off. Which is a very good thing, because the cliffhanger at the end of Sugar Daddy left me reeling. Thank you, Sawyer Bennett, for not making me wait too long to find out what happened next for Sela and Beck. 

So, Sela finally came clean to Beckett about what happened to her at the hands of his business partner JT, and now Beckett is in a difficult position. He needs to find a way to cut his ties with JT, keep his business and protect his girl, all while playing like everything is cool at work. This is no small feat, especially since JT is Beck's best friend and has been for a long time. 

Meanwhile, Sela has to learn to rely on Beck to help her. It's become obvious to her that her original plan to infiltrate the Sugar Bowl, murder JT, and either die herself or go to jail for the rest of her life, isn't really a viable one anymore. She now has something to live for - a reason to look forward to the future. 

Trust is a hard thing for Sela though, as we saw in book 1. She doesn't give it or her hard-won control up easily. But if anyone can convince her to, it's Beck. I LOVE this guy. He's one of the good ones. His company may be a bit on the sketchy side, but he's inherently a good guy. He helps others, loves fiercely and will go to great lengths to protect people he loves. Which is made very obvious in Sugar Rush. 

Once again, Sawyer Bennett hits us with one awesome cliffhanger. It made me wish I had the last book on hand right away, because one bad decision, one huge information bomb and one crazy final scene all in the last chapter had me ripping my hair out, wishing I could just keep reading. I can't wait to read more hot Sela and Beck scenes, find out what's happening with their plans to oust JT and live happily ever after.

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Mary’s strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.
