Adult Contemporary Romance
Released 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*
Prepare yourself people because Gavin Cooke's story is probably my favorite yet! He is an author of some pretty naughty books. He is having a hard time writing so he moves to the states and hopes there are less distractions. Gavin is a crude and angry man. He has had some serious hardships in his life. Things that changed him into the hard and cold person he is now. Upon buying his new house he realizes he will need a housekeeper so he can focus on writing. Luckily his Realtor knows just the right person.
Savannah cleans homes for extra money. Her photography career isn't exactly enough. When her friend approaches her about an opportunity to clean another home she takes it on. Although it is difficult given her current schedules. Savannah could never prepare herself for Gavin. He answers the door practically nude and is rude. She pretty much tells him to find someone else but, he wants her. So she goes to his house, makes him supper, and cleans a few times a week. Gavin is still cold and rude but, there is something about him. Something about his dominance that pushes all the right buttons for Savannah. Can she crack this mans shell or will he be the death of her?
The romance between these to is smoldering! It starts out one sided and warm. Savannah really likes Gavin but, is it anything other then lust? They both are overcome with lust on numerous occasions but, to Gavin it is nothing more. Ever since his previous relationship he has turned off that caring part of him. Women are a means to an end. But when he starts to feel himself changing and he opens up to Saannah he knows something is changing. Could he possibly be the man she needs?
This book was such a fun read! So many emotions. I couldn't put it down. Bennett has a way of writing a complete jerk but, still make him likable. To see all the changes between Savannah and Gavin unfold was amazing. I highly recommend this one. It is my favorite in the Last Call series.
