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*
About the Author
I really enjoyed this book, which, while it is part of the Last Call series, it can be read as a stand alone book; the other characters from the first two books in the series make a few appearances, but they can be considered more or less background noise.
The chemistry between Gavin and Savannah is really freakin' hot and awesome to read, but for the majority of the book I kept wondering when would the other shoe would drop. There is the requisite angst that occurs, but in my opinion, it happened a bit too late in the story, and that in turn kind of threw the ending off because it felt a bit rushed. But that's my only issue with the story, and I am eagerly looking forward already to the next book in the series.
