*2014 Favorite Read *
Sugar On The Edge is by far the best book Sawyer Bennett has written! She has proven her growth as an author, created more complex characters, gave them more of an edgy darkness, created a plot that was unique, and merged several genres together that work perfectly together.
Sugar On The Edge can be read as a stand alone novel or in the Last Call series order. The beloved characters from the previous books are present in Sugar On The Edge. They lend a strong supporting role for the characters without influencing the direction of this story or having their own stories repeated or referred to throughout the book. Sawyer Bennett allowed her leading characters, Gavin Cooke and Savannah Shepard, to take the readers away in a completely new direction.
British author Gavin Cooke has come to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to complete his book. He is on a deadline. His destructive behaviors, drinking, and disregard have left his publishers and agent in a corner. They have suggested he take himself out of the seedy streets of London and buckle down. He is an arrogant self absorbed, dirty mouthed, critical, and contemptuous arse. He knows it and makes no apologies. His crude mouth, diabolical behavior, and self destruction have just changed geographical locations.
Gavin Cooke is sex on a stick! His filthy mouth and filthy moves will have you swooning. His vulnerability and misguided guilt will have you wanting to hug him after you tie his delicious self to the bed. He is one hot alpha male. His snarly, dry British sarcasm and creative blend of words will tantalize all the senses
Savannah Shepard is a struggling photographer. After losing her job at the local newspaper she is forced to take on several jobs to make ends meet. When she takes on the job of being a temporary housekeeper for Gavin Cooke, her life has just taken on another crappy job. The man is a complete jerk. He assumes too much, sees too little, and berates everything. He may think she’s a lamb and he’s the big bad wolf . He has another thing coming, Savannah has taken on the wolves and beat them to the ground. She is a tigress in a lamb’s skin.
Gavin and Savannah’s relationship is combustible and every surface they touch goes up in flames. Gavin may be domineering and Savannah may seem submissive but all is not what it seems. Together these two will find all the right ingredients to make the perfect combination that will intoxicate the readers.
There will be explosive sexual chemistry, panty dripping scenes, dramatic tear jerking moments, swooning romance, shocking actions, and a new story with a happy ending. Their journey will keep the readers captivated. I will say this, it is a good thing that Savannah and Gavin have their own persona Yoda, Brody Markham.
Sawyer Bennett has broke the mold with Sugar On The Edge. Her star is shining bright!
Gavin kept referring to Savannah as "Sweet". Yes she's sweet, she's basically just a nice, caring person. There are lots of women in the world like that, she's not a unicorn! She's also too much of a doormat and doesn't seem to have a lot of ambition. She wants to be a wildlife photographer, yet doesn't really do anything to make that happen. It's NEVER going to happen in the small town she's in. Gavin was unrealistically wealthy. He's had one successful book, he's not Stephen King. But that seems to work out well for Savannah and her lack of ambition. He's also another guy whose rudeness get excused because of his good looks.
I did feel for Gavin in regards to the Charlie story. And I did like how Savannah helped him out of his darkness. They did make a good couple once they were actually together. I liked Savannah's relationship with Brody, that was sweet.
The conflict near the end I could see coming a mile away. The way Gavin handled it was horrible, but predictable. How long he let it drag out was unforgivable and then Savannah played the doormat again.
There is no way any pharmacist would give a woman of childbearing age an Rx for antibiotics and not tell her it affects her birth controls pills. And Savannah's excuses were really weak. Stuff like that makes me crazy!
So here's my take...
This was my favorite so far in this series. Was Gavin hard to take at the end? Yes, indeed. But look at it this way... up to that point everything between the two of them was going along swimmingly. They fell in love, and had great sex. Happy, happy, happy. They both had tough pasts, but they were getting over them and moving on.
Now if that were to continue, how would there be any story worth reading? No conflict, no drama= no book!
So, if you have 2 people as happy as they were, you need to throw something at them that is EQUALLY as tough to take as they are over the moon in love. Balance. I kept wondering what would be so horrendous to almost break them up forever.
And it happened. I'm not going to say what because I hate spoilers without warnings. It's not fair to unsuspecting readers. I'll just say that it brought me to tears, and given his personality, it seemed like what Gavin just might do. And it seemed in character for Savannah as well. Well done, Sawyer Bennett. This book was steamy, happy, sad, full of drama and personality.
My only criticism of the book at ALL is the use of a darkroom. Photography is pretty much completely digital in 2016. That didn't seem right at all. But, it wasn't enough to spoil the book for me, so I'm still giving it 5 stars.
