I don't remember the last time I read an entire three-part series and gave every single part of the series a 5-star rating. But this series- OMG! Every single installment including this one have been off the charts good. Not just good, but sitting on the edge of your seat, trying to breathe and dropping your kindle because you're so excited good. I give such major props to Sawyer Bennett for reinventing herself as an author and writing something that exhibits all her best qualities but still breaks new ground for her.
If you have not read the first two books in this series, this is where you leave us. These books are all continuations of one another. You can't read this book without reading rhe other two first. This review will not contain any Sugar Free spoilers but it will definitely spoil the first two books for you.
When Sugar Free kicks off JT is dead. Sela has to tell Beck what happened. Beck makes the decision to help her cover up the murder and Caroline is along for the ride. Even though Sela made the decision not to tell Beck and Caroline about JT's confession about Caroline, she does change her mind. But but but, none of that works out the way you might think. Sawyer Bennett manages to weave mystery and suspense within mystery and suspense. Half way through the book you will be going wait WHAT? Instead of just wrapping everything up in this book, Bennett continues the adventure right up until the end. That's why I really love this book.
It seems like seriel authors sometimes dial it in during parts of the series. Bennett didn't do that here. She continued to develop the relationship between Beck and Sela in a very real way. Everything was not just wonderful between the two. Sela didn't just kill JT and ride off into the sunset with the love of her life. Things were legitimately and understandably rough for the couple. Their ability to pull through hard times and strengthen their love was really amazing to watch. It put this book over the top and made it a love story and an adventure that I will remember for a long time. If you have already come this far in this series, I probably don't have to convince you but I can reassure you. This book doesn't just fizzle. Sawyer Bennett delivers everything you are looking for and more.
