Another enjoyable, engaging and enthralling read by Sawyer Bennett.
Roman, fan me down, I loved him. A playboy, a guy with a hot headed reputation on the ice but when the right girl comes along he does a complete one eighty.
Roman is sweet,sexy and swoon-worthy.
I was pulled into Lexi and Roman's story right from the beginning and loved the journey of all the characters.
Lexi discovers after her mother's death that she has a father, Brian
Brannon, boss of The Cold Fury hockey team also a sister Gray from the previous book Ryker who is Brian's daughter.
Lexi's journey to finding love and a new family is brilliant, Lexi is a goofy, ukulele playing barista and an instantly likeable character.
Sawyer Bennett doesn't stop there though, oh no no no no, you get the added bonus of Brian also finding love with Georgia who has been a mother figure for Lexi.
Georgia is a straight talking southern sassy woman who sweeps Britain right off his feet with her no nonsense demands for a date. I loved her character.
You get Brian,Lexi and Roman's pov throughout this book and it's all balanced out brilliantly.
Not a hockey fan? The plot is completely focused on the characters and what's going on in their lives, yes it includes talk of games, other players or training etc but that's as far as it goes. Hockey is merely the setting for the characters. So if you don't like sports romance don't write this series off.
A story of new beginnings new friendships new relationships with added hotness and a thoroughly enjoyable plot.
Really looking forward to Sawyer Bennett's next book her writing is addictive.
Arc received by netgalley for review
New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett steams up the ice all over again as the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team’s hottest bad boy gets his first taste of something good.
In a league full of troublemakers, Cold Fury defenseman Roman Sýkora stands out—at least when it comes to negative publicity. When he’s not chilling in the penalty box, the sizzling Czech skate demon is racking up tabloid headlines for his scandalous behavior with the ladies. But now Roman’s feeling the burn from management to clean up his act, or else. Luckily he’s got an enticing distraction: a fun-loving barista who plays the ukulele and brings out a side of Roman he didn’t know he had.
Lexi Robertson came to Raleigh, North Carolina, to finally meet her father, Brian Brannon, and her half sister, Gray, both of whom work in the Cold Fury’s front office. That’s where she first meets sexy, intimidating Roman—who’s really a big softie at heart. As one relationship takes off, another begins: Brian seems to be clicking with Lexi’s boss at the coffee shop. But when the friction between Roman and her new family heats up, Lexi wonders whether she’s a pawn in their game. Feeling hurt and foolish, Lexi’s ready to quit while she’s ahead. Trouble is, Roman’s not ready to quit on her.

Hockey star Alexander Crossman has a reputation as a cold-hearted player on and off the rink. Pushed into the sport by an alcoholic father, Alex isn't afraid to give fans the proverbial middle finger, relishing his role as the MVP they love to hate. Management, however, isn't so amused. Now Alex has a choice: fix his public image through community service or ride the bench. But Alex refuses to be molded into the Carolina Cold Fury poster boy . . . not even by a tempting redhead with killer curves.
As a social worker, Sutton Price is accustomed to difficult people--like Alex, who's been assigned to help her create a drug-abuse awareness program for at-risk youth as part of the team's effort to clean up his image. What she doesn't expect is the arrogant smirk from his perfect lips to stir her most heated fantasies. But Sutton isn't one to cross professional boundaries--and besides, Alex doesn't do relationships . . . or does he? The more she sees behind Alex's bad-boy facade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers."
