Book Info

Title: Sugar Rush (Sugar Bowl, Book #2)
Author: Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: August 16, 2016


In the steamy and suspenseful sequel to Sugar Daddy (“A totally gripping take on romance and revenge!”—Lauren Blakely), a heartbreaking rift threatens to unravel a dangerous alliance . . . and a fragile new love.

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!

4.5 ‘Whipped cream and sex toys’ Stars!

ARC provided via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.


Damn, mother of freaking cliffhangers! Sawyer Bennett did it again, people! I had zero doubts though because when I read Sugar Daddy it was such an extraordinary experience that I knew Sugar Rush would be just as amazing! I am falling in love with Bennett’s writing word by word!

Sugar Rush is the second installment in Bennett’s Sugar Bowl series in which she has created a trilogy with her especial touches to it plus adding something new: a little bit of darkness. This book continues the story of Sela Halstead and Beckett ‘Beck’ North, two people who fall in love surrounded by secrets and lies. Now Beck knows what Sela was hiding and everything that happens in this novel revolves around what they want to do about it.

The complete truth is out, and now it’s time to destroy JT.

I feel Sugar Rush was even darker than Sugar Daddy. As you know, if you have read the first book in the series, Sela is decided to take revenge after what Jonathon Townsend did to her and Beck is now on her boat too, especially when it comes to their business and also because he wants to stop Sela from hurting about what happened.  Well, this book is even more focused on taking down JT, to the point that it ends with a major cliffhanger that left me breathless. It was insanely intense, that’s for sure!

Keep your eye on the prize, Beck. Sela’s the prize.

“You finish up with your dad, come grab me, and we jet out of there before anyone can stop us.”
“Then we go home and celebrate Christmas Eve together,” he adds.
“Preferably naked,” I say with an impish grin.
“In front of the fireplace.”
“With whipped cream.”
“And toys… we must play with toys,” he says with a laugh.

Even with all the vengeance plot, I have to say what I enjoyed the most about Sugar Rush is how Sawyer developed Sela and Beck’s relationship even further. Now they have a common enemy yes but what brings them together and makes them such a perfect couple is the love they have for each other. Their feelings are so strong that nothing surpasses them and these two gave us such fabulous moments together! Obviously, the Sugar Bowl couple still have amazing chemistry, inside and outside the bedroom!

His actions are leisurely, his gaze is tender, and his cock is dominating.

“I intent to spoil you, Sela” he murmurs. “I want to give you the world.”
[…] “You’ve already given me the world.”

And then, as I previously mentioned, that MAJOR cliffhanger happens. Holy mother of Jesus, it was extremely rough and absolutely amazing! Well done, Sawyer Bennett, well done! And thank God I did not have to wait for Sugar Free because I would have been very painful to wait, you all know how much I hate waiting lol Especially, when there is such an emotional ending involved. I cannot wait to see what all of you guys have to say about it!

Knowing how she feels for me and I feel for her… there is nothing comparable to this feeling.

So, my rating for Sugar Rush is 4.5 STARS because I really enjoyed every dark and sexy part of this book. Sawyer Bennett is amazingly talented and she continued with an even darker story that won’t leave you indifferent! Since it ended with a cliffhanger and also because I always want more, I am hoping to rate Sugar Free with a much deserved 5 stars (I totally did!); I am absolutely sure the Sugar Bowl series will be one of my favorites this year so I highly recommend it!
