Sugar Daddy (Sugar Bowl #1) by Sawyer Bennett [Review]

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.

5 Please be My Daddy Stars
Sugar Daddy is the first book in the Sugar Bowl series. There will be a total of three books in this series, but all books are full novels (not novellas). I really have to put this disclaimer out there, yes its part of a series, but don’t rule it out because of that. I love serial books, they can be frustrating, but they are also addictive, they make my heart race and I love it when an author hooks you in, because she does do that.

I popped my Sawyer Bennett cherry and what a book I did it with. Gah, the feels I had with this book, it was nothing what I expected, but it was so much more and more. I loved it from the first page, I couldn’t get enough and right after I finished I had to read another Sawyer Bennett book to get my fix!

So, let’s enter the world of Sugar Babies and Sugar Daddies, it’s actually a real thing, CNN had a documentary on it and it was fantastic. Sugar Daddies are just that, they are men, usually older looking for a twenty-something female for companionship. Sugar Babies are the twenty-something gals that hook up with the Daddies in exchange for gifts, money and other things. It’s illegal to exchange money for sex, but it’s implied.

Sela Halstead is a girl with a dark past. She was raped by several men. She doesn’t know all of them, but she recognizes one of them when she sees him on TV, he is the co-owner of a company The Sugar Bowl. It’s an on-line service where Sugar Babies and Sugar Daddies can meet. Don’t you love this plot? I know I do. When you first start the book, you soon understand Sela’s pain, the book doesn’t get into the nitty and gritty part of it, but you know Sela is a tortured girl and she’s looking for revenge.

I loved that Sela worked hard to be a Sugar baby, she lost weight, dressed differently and became sexier so she could lure her rapist into her trap. I liked that Sela was a damsel in distress, but a tough cookie at the same time. She’s a Heroine I love to read.

Beckett is the other co-owner of the Sugar Bowl. He’s not like his partner (the rapist). Beckett likes to hide behind the scenes and work on the site’s coding and programing. I love Beckett, I love how he’s nerdy, smart and not superficial. I love how he’s part of this crazy website, but he doesn’t act on it, he does sleep with women, but he’s no sugar daddy and never will be, well, until he meets Sela.
Gah,  Beckett is the total nerdy hottie, I only wished he wore glasses! He attends the social events, but he could care less about the girls, he only uses them for one night stands. I like how he’s the guy that doesn’t do relationships, but he’s willing to pursue something with Sela when he sees her for the first time.

And that is just the tip of the story, so much more happens. It’s a really fast pace book and I kept on asking myself, what else can happen, but something does and it’s a crazy wild ride. I love the Sela and Beckett dynamics. I love how Sela must work on her issues with her past and her future with Beckett. I love how Beckett is this nice guy, but he slowly starts to care for Sela and he becomes the guy he never thought he would be.

Sugar Daddy is a rush. If you want something steamy, dramatic and super addictive, then this one is for you.
