Adult Contemporary Romance
Releasing July 28, 2014
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*
Writer Gavin Cooke is a broken man, under pressure to finish his next novel, Gavin relocates across the ocean to North Carolina. He is jaded, rude, and spends most of his time with a bottle but when he hires a house cleaner he believes he has her pegged. She is sweet, timid, and innocent, he couldn’t be more wrong.
Savannah Shepherd is just trying to get by, having been dealt another blow she is working herself ragged and has just taken a new client. Gavin is forthright in his opinion of her, but she keeps surprising her. Gavin begins to wake up from his hole and finds he just can’t get enough of Savannah, however he is not sure if he can let go of the past in order to have a future.
Spicy, seductive, and surprising. This was another great read from Sawyer Bennett, Gavin is a jerk with a capital J and he goes about putting people one edge. It brings him joy to make some one uncomfortable, but when he does this to Savannah he finds he doesn’t necessarily relish in the satisfaction of being a dick, he wants for Savannah to see him differently. Highly entertaining.
