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 is the third book in the Last Call series by Sawyer Bennett and I have to say that I think it is my favorite. This series just keeps getting better and better as the books come out. This is a fairly quick read. Just like books 1 & 2 this was a fun and sexy read that keeps you intrigued all the way through. I love Sawyer’s writing style. It is smooth and effortless. She creates characters that are so relatable and likable, you feel like you are in the story with them. She has the ability to suck you into her story and make you feel what the characters are feeling. Even though this is book 3 in this series, it can totally be read as a stand alone. We do see characters from the previous books, but Sawyer does a great job filling in the blanks so you don’t feel like you miss anything. But I love this series so much that I would suggest reading all of the books, you won’t be sorry.
This book is about Savannah and Gavin. We met Savannah in book 2 because she is Casey’s roommate and friends with Gabby and Alyssa also. I liked Savannah’s character a lot!!! She is shy and timid but she also has a backbone and will put a person in their place. Savannah was truly a strong person, she was faced with a terrible situation in high school and was determined to get justice, no matter what. What she endured would’ve broke anyone, but not her. I will say that I thought she forgave Gavin in the end a little to quickly, I would’ve made him grovel a little more. You’ll need to read the book to know what I am talking about. Gavin is new character in this series, but I have to say he was my favorite!!!! He had such a “filthy” mouth. My panties melted so many times reading this book. When we first meet Gavin he is a surly character and is pretty mean to everyone. He had a tragic event happen to him and it broke his soul and my heart. He drowned his sorrow in alcohol, drugs and women…until his agent makes him go to the US to get straight and finish the book he is writing. This is how he meets Savannah and over the course of the book he learns to trust her and open up his heart to her. These two really did compliment each other and helped them find the true enjoyment out of life. Just as every couple we read in a romance book, they have their ups and downs, and make mistakes, but in the end I was happy to see that they could work it out.
If you are a fan of Sawyer’s books and are a fan of this series, you DON’T want to miss this book!!!! If you are looking for the fun and sexy love story with a British Hero who has an extremely dirty mouth, then this is the book for you. Just make sure to have a fan, and fresh panties handy while reading this book…LOL 😉
