Audiobook Review: Sugar Daddy: Sawyer Bennett

Sugar Daddy

Narrated By Christian Fox & Lucy Rivers

Sela Halstead lost her innocence in a way that no 16-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 naive, 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.


Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

When Sela spies a distinct tattoo, it triggers a memory. A brutal rape she endured years ago as a 16-year-old. Sela is no longer a helpless teenager and she wants Jonathon Townsend, her assailant, to pay.

Jonathon Townsend is now the millionaire co-founder of a dating service. His abuse of women has only grown worse over the years and Sela’s has plans to bring him down.

A monkey wrench is thrown into her plans when she falls for Beckett North, Jonathon’s business partner. What a predicament! Sela is torn between coming clean or keeping quiet and foregoing her vendetta to make a life with Beckett.

Oh sure, there’s pink and glitter all over the cover of this audiobook. Don’t get it twisted, this isn’t a sweet story. It’s at turns dark and disturbing and then there are moments of love and lust. Underneath it all, there’s a feeling of impending doom and what an explosive ending!

Trigger warning, this book is graphic in its depiction of rape, so if you are sensitive to such material you will want to skip this book. Another warning, this audiobook ends in a cliffhanger, but luckily the entire series is out so you won’t have to suffer through waiting for the next audiobook to be released.

Sugar Daddy is a dual narration by Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers. What an awesome team they make, both had the range emotion to pull off stellar performances. The sound and audio quality were exceptional.

This series may end up being my all time favorite by author Sawyer Bennett and I can’t wait to listen to the next book in the series.

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.
