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 and is about Savannah (Gabby’s old roommate) and Gavin (a new arrival in town).
Savannah is a nice, caring and honest woman, all traits that Gavin believes make her weak and a doormat and ultimately not worthy of his time. When you learn more about her, you realise she can also be strong and determined, she just picks her battles.
Gavin has arrived in town for three reasons: to get away from his past; to clean up his act; and to finish his current novel. He suffered an tragic loss years ago and since then he’s become bitter and hateful. Honestly, he was impossible to like in the beginning because he was very rude and crude, deliberately pushing Savannah for no other reason than he liked to upset and embarrass her. His personality changes drastically when he starts a relationship with her, but it takes just one mistake for him to return to his bitter and hateful existence, and that was disappointing.
To be honest, I can’t understand how Gavin and Savannah came together⎯he treated her like crap and the main reason she slept with him was to prove to him that his impression of her was wrong. When they hit a little bump in their relationship, he was absolutely horrible to her and left her alone for months without any contact. I liked Savannah, but I hated that she forgave him so quickly after what he said and did to her. Don’t get me wrong, his apology was beautiful, but I just can’t see anyone who spent the past few months heartbroken being able to forgive someone after a two minute declaration.
SUGAR ON THE EDGE is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone.
