WHR Synopsis

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.




Sugar Daddy is one of those books that just absolutely sucks you in. It could be the first time you read it or the fifth time you read it but regardless it is engrossing. A bit of truth here, I had to sit down and reread this book before I could write the review. Not because it’s a bad book at all, it’s fantastic, it’s more that I’d read so much I’d forgotten the plot.

Sugar Daddy is a cliffhanger. That being the case, obviously I wanted to refresh my memory before I dove into the other books in the series. Also, because of my reaction to the cliffy in first book, I wasn’t going near the next one until all three were out. Yes, that is correct, this is a three book series and none of them are standalones. You also won’t find an HEA in Sugar Daddy but you will find intrigue. You will want to read the next book.

I fell in love with Sela and Beck. Sela in particular has so much going on that you can’t help but feel for her. You may not always agree with how she does things but you tend to get why she does them. Beck, on the other hand, it sort of a puzzle to me still. I love that. I’m hoping to figure out more of him as the books go.

That’s pretty much all that can be said at the moment. Everything else would largely lead to spoilers, even me going in-depth on some of the characters quirks and the things I mentioned about Sela. I don’t like spoiling things for others. I will say that it’s a great set up for the first book and really prepares to drag you into the next one. You will want it instantly.

A full five stars from me on both the first and second read throughs. 🙂 A series started I would highly recommend.


5 star
