Reviewer for Alpha Book Review
Sela Halstead lost her innocence in a way that no sixteen-year-old should ever have to endure. She’s spent years trying to forget that night even while wondering about the identities of the monsters who brutalized her—until a telltale tattoo flashes across Sela’s TV screen. The incriminating ink belongs to Jonathon Townsend, the millionaire founder of The Sugar Bowl, a website that matches rich older men with impressionable young women. Obsessed with revenge, Sela infiltrates Townsend’s world, only to come face-to-face with a tantalizing complication: Beckett North, his charismatic business partner.
The tech mastermind behind The Sugar Bowl, Beck always gets what he wants, in business and in bed. And yet, for a man who’s done every dirty thing imaginable, there’s something about the naïve, fresh-faced Sela that sparks his hottest fantasies. Because with her, it’s not just about sex. Beck opens up to her in ways he never has with other girls. So why does he get the feeling that she’s hiding something? In a world of pleasure and power, the shocking truth could turn them against each other—or bind them forever.
Note: Sugar Daddy ends on a cliffhanger. Sela and Beck’s story continues in Sugar Rush and Sugar Free!
(Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for our honest review.)
A tattoo Sela Halstead sees on TV triggers a memory from her past. She was raped at age 16. Jonathon Townsend AKA JT was the man on TV. He is co-owner of Sugar Babies. Sela decides to become a Sugar Baby to get to JT. Events happen that Sela is introduced to Beckett North the other owner.
Sela had every intentions to use Beck to get to JT. But Sela’s heart got in the way. Beck and Sela have combustible chemistry. Both are scared to open up to one another. There is a lot of uncertainties from their past to make them go forward. Some things are not what it seems- like how they left the story!
I enjoyed this story. Looking forward to reading the continuation to Beck and Sela.
