Sawyer Bennett has delivered the perfect conclusion to her Sugar Bowl series. I was blown away by this compelling legal suspense! This book was a real nail-biter, keeping me hooked until the very last page of the epilogue. Sugar Free was such an intense rollercoaster ride of emotions and angst, with many twists and turns, gut-wrenching revelations and scorching sensuality! This is definitely a testament to Sawyer Bennett’s excellent writing and characterization.
Even in the most difficult and painful circumstances, Sela can count on Beck’s support and help. He is always there to save her and I loved him even more for it. Sela tends to be reckless and her mistake could cost them everything. They are caught in a trap of lies and deceit by a fame-hungry assistant district attorney. As a result, Beck will have to use all his considerable resources to attempt to save them both.
Sawyer Bennett’s books are an auto-buy for me, I love her stories, but this series is definitely my favorite by her. The writing, the characterization, the pace were flawless. The story was intense, riveting and utterly addictive. The author did a wonderful job of tying up all loose ends and giving me the happily ever after I wanted for Sela and Beck! I can’t recommend this thrilling series enough! If you haven’t started it, do yourself a favor and read it!

Sela and Beck’s deliciously sinful tale of sex, lies, and vengeance reaches its explosive conclusion in the final chapter of Sawyer Bennett’s Sugar Bowl trilogy, which began with the novels Sugar Daddy and Sugar Rush.
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.
