Start your review of Sugar Free (Sugar Bowl, #3)
After the massive cliffhangers that the first two books ended with, I was a little surprised at how nice and tidy everything wrapped up at the end of 'Sugar Free'. I knew it was the last book in the series going into it, but I just couldn't believe that it would really provide answers to all of my questions. Alas, it did all of that and more.

Like the first two books in the 'Sugar Bowl' series, you can expect to be kept on the edge of your seat right to the end. Sela and Beck still have their wo

Sawyer Bennett delivers a fantastic ending for this three book series. I was on the edge of my seat the ENTIRE read.

The story is exciting with decisions, consequences, and BIG reveals all of which worked and made for one great conclusion to a series I definitely recommend!

"What you and I have, Sela... no one will ever comprehend it. No one will ever come in between it. But it's real and it's ours, and I'm never letting it go."

5 Stars!

Sawyer Bennett just threw some nice and powerful fireballs in this thrilling finale of Sugar Bowl series. This book had to be one of the most nerve pounding books that I've read. It provided unforgettable twist and turns that had me on edge and a beautiful ending that really satisfied.

It is a Sawyer Bennett book though so you know there is still a little bit of time for something extra.

Finally, we are getting the much-deserved ending of this extraordinary series that Sawyer Bennett gave us this year. After feeling all the emotions possible and suffering two extremely surprising cliffhangers while reading, I can assure that the Sugar Bowl books are definitely on my 2016 favorites list.

My, my! This book is so good and a worthy conclusion of this series! I enjoyed every chapter and the plot twists, perfectly done! I dare to say that in this book the drama and angst are more present than in the previous two books but that's exactly what makes this story so great. I simply loved it! The fact that I've read the whole series in just two days is proof of that! And don't even get me started on the characters! Now we truly get to see their real personalities, especially Beck's parents

Argh, it's so hard to write spoiler-free reviews! If you haven't read the first two in this series I urge you to do so. It cannot be read out of order.

Shutting this book is bittersweet. Saying goodbye to Beck and Sela after their journey was sad but knowing that we left them in a good place was exhilerating. The last installment of the Sugar Bowl series will challenge your moral compass in ways you haven't considered before. At least I

After putting my self through not one, but two cliffhangers from this couple, I definitely deserved the best ending this author could give us. And that is exactly what she delivered. I had my theories on how the story of Sela and Beck would end, but Sawyer Bennett shocked me with what actually happened. Sugar Free went in a completely different direction than I thought it would, and I love that this author could astonish me so much with this one.

*****5 Stars*****


“Sugar Free” is the third and final book in the “Sugar Bowl” series by Sawyer Bennett. This was a highly anticipated read for me because I could not wait to read this stunning conclusion to a series that I was so invested in. None of the books in the “Sugar Bowl” series are a standalone. You need to read them in order: “Sugar Daddy” followed by “Sugar Rush” and then finally “Sugar Free.” All three books directly follow on from each other.

This is an extremely hard review for me

What a great conclusion! This serial has brought us on quite the ride. Sela and Beck get the opportunity to prove how far they are willing to go for their love and let me tell you, when the love is that strong... the possibilities are endless. In the last installment, Sela went to go see someone who hurt her in the past. This book the resolution to that encounter and the associated events. While the story definitely had the presence of a criminal element in the previous installments, the plot se ...more

Hours after finishing Sugar Free, the last installment of the Sugar Bowl series, I’m still a little speechless. From the moment I started reading, I was captivated and could not put it down. How was Sawyer Bennett going to pull it off? Would all my questions finally be answered?

This review is going to be short and sweet because I need to recover from my sugar addiction…and I don’t want to give anything away.

I was tempted from almost the beginning to do status updates for this book but I was worried about giving away key plot points. As I went further along in Sugar Free, I’ll be honest and admit that I started to lose faith. I though Beck and Sela had lost their minds. I was so peeved at them for the decisions they made.

This was a good series with this final book ending on a high. Sawyer does a great job of weaving a twisted tale with angst, suspense, secrets and lies.

I also really enjoy Sawyer's stories with legal proceedings. I think that's partly why I really enjoyed this final book. The story went by fast and kept me invested from page one.

Beck and Sela are engaging characters and HOT together. Both were easy to connect with, root for and understand. This story is unlike any Sawyer has done before and I th

Murder. What lengths would you go to, how much would you be willing to give up for the person you love? Read the exciting conclusion of the Sugar Bowl trilogy by Sawyer Bennett.

I thought I could patiently wait after the major cliffy in Sugar Rush but I just couldn't wait.......I had to know how Sela and Beck ended.

Sugar Free begins exactly where Sugar Rush left off. Answering the major question......"Sela what did you do???"

This last book was a crazy roller coaster ride. It kept me engaged and on the edge of my seat. Sela and Beck have major obstacles in this book. But their commitment and love for one another keeps them on track. But what is overwh

And while I didn’t hate it, Sugar Free did prove the point I beat like a dead horse that a book series always disappoints. This could have easily been wrapped up in one long-ish book (maybe two max), but after the cliffhanger on Sugar Rush there was no way I could skip this final installment . . . .

"Oh Sela. What have you done?"

The third book focuses mainly to the aftershocks following Sela’s actions in book 2 “Sugar Rush”.

Consequently the revenge drama that has been slowly unveiled in the first two books is transformed into a full action court room drama. Defense attorneys have to be hired, evidences have to be hidden and Beck will never allow the love of his life to be destroyed.

Moreover more secrets about Beck’s family are exposed. Beck sees the light of his father’s actions a bit too

I loved the series but Sugar Free was definitely my least favorite of the three by far. I didn't mind the ending, it made sense. I had high expectations after the first two books, but half way through Sugar Free I was bored. This whole book seemed to drag out only to have the end very rushed. Not my favorite book, I really had a hard time finishing it.

The final book in Sawyer Bennett’s Sugar Bowl series, picks up, right where Sugar Rush left off. If you have not read the previous two installments, be warned the review below does contain spoilers in relation to the story so far.

I think it’s safe to say that Sela’s actions towards the end of Sugar Rush were the height of stupidity, bearing in mind everything that had played out with JT previously and her initial reasons that

Sugar Free is the concluding book to the Sugar Bowl series. I know a lot of people don’t like serials because they have issues with a cliffy, but in my opinion I LOVE cliff hangers. I love it because it always leaves me wanting more and as a reading addict, I never want that feeling to end.

I really enjoy Sawyer Bennett’s writing and I really liked this series. The ending didn’t disappoint and I was happy it had a different tone and theme to it. I would say Sugar Fr

This is a damn good series. As much as i was sad to see this end, this third and final book had me holding my breath till about the 90% mark. After that cliffy, I just did not know what to expect and i tried to ignore the dire consequences they faced because of Sela's actions. I have to say this though- Sela would have been royally screwed if not for Beck's love and sense of protectiveness. Beck remains my hero in this series. His sacrifices and

Sawyer Bennett’s Sugar Bowl series is a must read for 2016!

I’m totally and unequivocally in love with Beck and Sela. I’m not sure that I’ll be able to do justice to their story so I’m probably just going to ramble.

Sexy—this book is full of hot and sexy love. It’s the quintessential Beck and Sela connection!
Love—the love pours from the pages of this book. If I had a paperback copy I’m sure the words would actually be floating off the pages.

GREAT ENDING!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everything taken care of. No loose ends. No holes. Lots of suspense and drama and bad decisions. Plenty of love, romance, sex. Great friends and family (well most of them).

Beautiful I want a story with the romance hinted at during it, but not in three parts with horrible cliffhangers.

This book was all kinds of roller coaster suspense! If you've read the first two books in the Sugar Bowl series, you know this book would be packed with trials and tribulations for our two MCs to get their happily-ever-after. And I devoured it!

Beckett North was the star of this series for me. I swear, this guy is so freaking perfectly put together, he's swoon-worthy. His loyalty to his girlfriend Sela, even in the aftermath of her immense stupidity was commendable. An
