He’s utterly alone…
Tortured and existing in a dark spiral of despair, bestselling British author, Gavin Cooke, has come to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to escape the seedy lifestyle he had been living in London and in a desperate attempt to regain his writing focus. He’s twisted, bitter and angry at the world. He’s a loner… needing not a single thing other than his Scotch and a laptop upon which he can bang out his next erotic, dark thriller.
She’s running in place and getting nowhere…
Savannah Shepherd’s life is falling apart. Her dream of being a wildlife photographer seems a distant memory and she’s barely able to make ends meet. Driving herself forward with no clear goals apparent, she’s about ready to pack up her bags and head home with her tail between her legs.
Two unlikely lovers…
He’s raw, forceful and a dirty talker. She’s a flowers and romance type of girl. Yet within each other, they find a mutual craving that can only be satisfied by giving in to their desires for one another.
Lust turns into something more… something they were not looking for but tentatively accept. Will it be enough to push them past the obstacles of Gavin’s bitter past?
*SUGAR ON THE EDGE can be read as a stand-alone*
I loved this book.
Sawyer Bennett will always be one of my automatic read authors. I love the characters, her style of writing, her stories are developed in such a way you cannot put them down, while the characters feel like the could be your friends or neighbours.
This book was brilliant from start to finish.
We have met Savannah in the previous two books. She is quiet and shy and works her ass off in several jobs just to get by. She is loyal and caring towards her friends, and goes out of her way to help anyone out, she is a all round nice person.
Gavin Cooke, what a guy he’s a brooding British author who moves for piece and quiet to meet a dead line to finish his novel. At first glance he is arrogant, self centred a bit of an ass. But Gavin has had unimaginable tragedy followed by a few years of self abuse that has helped to make him this way.
Savannah and Gavin have a spark that develops into a kind of friendship that moves onto more. As things get more intense Gavin struggles, Can they survive Gavin’s past and his fears? What will Savannah do if Gavin goes back to London?
You will have to read this great book to find out.
Sawyer has really upped the heat factor in this book there are some fantastic steamy moments and hot filthy talk!
Savannah and Gavin have a sexy chemistry that works so well with the story.
I have loved all three of the books in this series and cannot wait for more!
