Synopsis (Goodreads):
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?
Thoughts on Sugar on the Edge: Tortured, brooding men who have no idea how much they need to connect with people are my THING lately, I guess. Because Gavin worked for me as much as Brody did. For all they're worlds apart and they approach their salvation in different ways, those two men have a lot in common.

But let's talk about Gavin and Savannah, shall we? Gavin makes a lot of assumptions about her based off their first meeting. He sees a quiet mouse of a woman with no backbone. Savannah *is* quiet, but she doesn't back down. Even it if would make her lie easier. Under her unassuming exterior lies the heart of a fighter.

And when she finally lets loose and goes for what she wants...HOO-BOY. The sparks start flying.

I loved seeing the previous couples settled into their coupledom. Brody and Alyssa, especially. They're just adorably cute together. Adorably.

All the friends are quickly falling. Onward with the series.
