Book Review – Sugar on the Edge by Sawyer Bennett

Goodreads Summary

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.

Sensual couple in blue jeans

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?


3.75 out of 5 stars


Sugar on the Edge is the story of Savannah, former roommate of Gabby and current roommate of Casey.  Savannah is a photographer struggling to make ends meat, and she also works as a house cleaner to make extra money.  Casey sells a huge house to author Gavin Cooke, a British author who is looking for his solitude.  Gavin mentions to Casey that he’s looking for someone to clean his house, and Casey recommends Savannah.

When Savannah accepts the job, she arrives and finds Gavin in boxer shorts and sporting a massive hangover.  He is also pretty much exposing himself to her.

Gavin has some major league baggage, and I won’t spoil why, but it’s really sad and understandable.  Savannah was a little timid, but quickly came out of her shell.

Gavin did some stupid shit in this book, but overall he was a good guy.  Once he finally opened up to Savannah, he became way more likable.  He ended up being very sweet and thoughtful, and really likable.

Another solid read in the series.

Happy reading and happy weekend.
