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
Bennett has done a great job in getting you hooked from the very start of this stellar novel. Bennett captures your attention and has you wanting more as the characters are so well thought out and captivating that you cannot put down this book.
I absolutely fell in love with Savannah Shepherd as she looks and seems like the good girl next door, but behind closed doors she has a different persona … and the one filthy boy to bring that out in her is Gavin Cooke. A novelist with a bad attitude and a sharp tongue he is everything that she shouldn’t want … but needs.
Their courtship will have you in fits of giggles and will have you gasping for air as one minute your laughing and the next minute your deeply aroused as Bennett has a knack for switching gears. This highly erotic tale of love and loss will have you wanting more! Great read!
