Blog Tour: Sugar on the Edge by Sawyer Bennett with Review and Giveaway

By USA Today Best-selling Author Sawyer Bennett
Last Call, #3
Adult Contemporary Romance
Released July 28, 2014
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*

My Thoughts:  Sugar on the Edge is the third book in Sawyer Bennett's Last Call Series, and is a companion novel that can be read as a standalone.  Gavin Cooke is the male main character in the book and is new to the series, while we met Savannah, the female main character in the previous novels, which I loved by the way.  In On the Rocks and Make it a Double we met the twins, Hot Hunter and Broody Brody, which both will take your breath away.  In Sugar on the Edge, we get up close and personal with Gavin Cooke, who is a much darker character.  He's a British author who is wealthy, arrogant, and rude, but also extremely hot and oozes with the darker side of sexy.  He has come to the Outer Banks to get away from all his "debauchery," so that he can finish his current novel and get it to the publisher.  While very intimidating, Gavin also has a painful history that has shaped him into the man he is.  Savannah Shepard is a really sweet person who is trying to make ends meet, which is how she ends up working for Gavin Cooke.  He finds her mysterious and intriguing, and she soon learns that he brings out a side in her that she didn't know she even harbored.

Gavin and Savannah have an intense chemistry and things are very hot, while somewhat darker on the sexual side of the novel, which is part of Gavin's nature.  As the relationship progresses, Gavin finds that he just can't get enough of this woman who is beautiful, sweet, and a little sassy, and nothing at all like the type of woman he usually goes for, while Savannah is learning to live on the wild side.  We also get to see the characters from the previous books, which I really enjoyed.  Things seem to be going great when something happens that causes past fears to rise up, threatening to destroy it all, but will Gavin come to his senses, and will it be too little too late for any hope of making things right.

I really loved Sugar on the Edge and Sawyer Bennett has delivered yet another captivating romance, while taking her readers on a ride that is a little on the dark side and a whole lot of sexy.  The romance is great, the story is wonderfully written, and the characters are awesome.  If you love contemporary romance, then you will definitely want to check this out.
