The Arizona Vengeance are developing a reputation on the ice as one of hockey’s top teams. But one player’s reputation offthe ice might just keep him from scoring. . . .
I’m having the time of my life with my new brothers on the Arizona Vengeance. We may be an expansion team, but after notching some big wins, the entire league knows to watch out for Erik Dahlbeck. That’s me.
The only person who doesn’t seem to think I’m so great? Blue Gardner, the hot-as-f*** flight attendant on our team plane. I sure wouldn’t mind joining the mile-high club with her, but besides bringing me lukewarm coffee, she won’t give me the time of day. Whatever I did to rub Blue the wrong way, my teammates think it’s hilarious. After all, we’re used to women flocking to us. #puckbunnies
When I run into Blue back on land, I’m shocked to learn how she spends her time off: taking care of her handicapped brother. There are layers to this girl I never imagined, layers I can’t wait to peel away. And that’s a new feeling for me.
But first I’ve got to find a way to melt that ice-cold stare. Because as much as I try to pretend I don’t care what Blue thinks of me, how can you not care when you’re falling for someone?
The Arizona Vengeance series from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett can be read together or separately:
And don’t miss her Carolina Cold Fury novels:
Book two in the Arizona vengeance series. Cold fury was my go to series when I fancied a hockey romance and I foresee a new favorite series ahead.
I really enjoyed Erik and Blue's story, It was sweet, romantic and had a second chance romance feel about it although they only had a drunken one night stand years ago, one Erik doesn't remember but Blue most definitely does.
Erik is one of the more mature players in the team, he's had his playboy years and this story is Erik finally meeting a woman that makes him want to settle down.
Blue is the teams flight attend for all of their flights to games, she travels with the team which is often. Blue has always given Erik the cold shoulder and doesn't take kindly to any of his flirting and later in the story you discover why and what really went down to make Blue dislike him so much.
I liked both characters, Erik is a swoon-worthy kind of guy and Blue is a woman who not only works two jobs to care for her handicap brother but is also honest and straight talking, both are two great and likable characters.
ERIK is the story of two people that have lived and learned, put their party days behind them and at the right time find each other.
There's very little angst or drama in ERIK if any, this is just two people finding each other and working things out, making adjustments and learning about and from each other to build their relationship and the sex scenes are pretty hot too.
I was also so curious about the other character's and their story's Sawyer paints a great picture of everything in the main characters lives including those who are close to them and I will definitely be looking forward to Tacker and Legends story's, Legends story looks like it would be fun while Tacker without a doubt due to his past will have heartbreaking moments.
ERIK is a recommended heartwarming read and along with Cold fury a Recommended sports romance series.
Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hfn with no definite happy ending but I am hoping to see more of Erik and Blue in the next book.
