This series from Sawyer Bennett is not like anything she has written before...there is a slight dark side to it, along with a suspenseful story that ends on a cliffhanger. Sela Halstead had her innocence taken from her when she was 16. All she remembers from that horrible day is the red phoenix bird with flames tattoo. Ten years later she is watching TV and an interview of Jonathon Townsend, CEO of Sugar Daddy catches her attention, especially a shot of him in a bathing suit that reveals the tattoo that has haunted her dreams. Immediately Sela starts to develop her plan for revenge. It takes her 6 months to transform herself in the perfect woman who would catch JT's attention and then Sela decides to join Sugar Daddy, the company that will match young girls with rich Sugar Daddy's. On the night of her first mixer, Sela is all ready to start her revenge but didn't expect a complication in the form of JT's business partner, Beckett North. The tall, gorgeous, too good to be true man, who is used to getting what he wants and he has decided he wants Sela.
I loved these two characters. Sela is a strong willed and determined woman. She has put herself through college and is currently working on her masters degree. She is so damaged from what happened to her at 16 that she does not have any real romantic interests. Beck is a perfect hero. He is honest, caring, smart and all around a really great guy.
As Sela and Beck find that they are drawn to each other in a way that neither of them ever expected, they can't help but just be together. I loved how their relationship just exploded. Beck made Sela realize that there are better things in life than revenge. Just when her life is going well......BOOM!
Overall, this is a great start to a new series with wonderful characters. I can't wait to see what will happen with Sela and Beck!
