Sugar on the Edge, Sawyer Bennet.

 

Sugar on the Edge, Sawyer Bennet.
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews.
I’m become a real Sawyer Bennet fan, this my third novel of hers now and once again I loved it. For me it has the perfect blend of romance and drama, sex and story. It’s the third in a series, but a stand alone and I can vouch for that as I’ve not read the first two ( though I will, some time…)
Gavin as the British author trying to work through a tragic past and finish his novel was perfect. A real jerk to Savannah at first, and uncouth and unrepentant in his drunken state. That was more or less full time, he was using alcohol to keep the past at bay, and cover his emotions. He’d bought an expensive house in a small town where his agent hoped the seclusion and change of scene would help him concentrate. So far though it wasn’t working…then Savannah comes into his life. She’s a photographer, but working only part time as an assistant to a real sleazeball man, and cleaning two other houses besides Gavin’s just to make ends meet. She’s exhausted and he mistakes that for her being a pushover, no back bone. He’s lots to learn though – she’s stood up publicly to one arrogant arse and isn’t going to take stick from another! Savannah is a lovely girl, and been through her own trauma in the past. she’s made a new start here, and has made some great friends. She’s very attracted to Gavin – well who wouldn’t be  he’s hotness all round. Underneath the abrasive rudeness he’s actually a nice guy too, and soon he and Savannah are lovers. What’s going to happen when he returns to England though – his term here is only to finish the book, do some tours and then he leaves.
I saw some of the drama coming, but never the less it worked well, and the sadness was played out, drawn into pages and pages as I need, not just over and done quickly. I need the drama this provides, I need to feel the emotion and tears, otherwise it becomes just another bland romance and Sawyer has done this for me in each book I’ve read so far! The sex scenes are good too – hot and sensual without being overdone, and they mix perfectly with a good, realistic story.
One crit though and its the UK/US language divide again…early on Gavin says something – I think its a comment on sidewalks but we’d say pavements. I can’t quite recall that part, though I noticed it at the time, then later when he’s talking to Brody, he says he’s got a glass of liquor to finish..We don’t say that but specify, in this case it would be a glass of whisky…small things though and comments only not criticisms.
Stars: Five, great read. Fun sexy romance.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
