From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett comes a new story in her Arizona Vengeance series…
I was living my dream until one phone call changed everything.
As the second line center for the Arizona Vengeance, my mind has been on one thing—helping my team bring home a championship. But that all changed when I found out my dad had cancer and only months to live. In that moment, nothing mattered more than getting home to North Carolina to be by his side. That meant asking for the unthinkable—a trade to the Carolina Cold Fury.
Now I’m home and when I’m not on the ice with my new team, I’m helping care for my dad. And in the midst of my grief, I find comfort from the one person I never expected.
Calliope Ramirez stole my heart at a very young age. The beautiful, smart, headstrong girl next door, she was my first… everything. She has never forgiven me for leaving her, believing that I chose hockey over a future together. What she doesn’t understand is that every decision I made was for her, and I’ve never given up hope that one day we’d be together again.
Watching my dad slip away is a harsh reminder of how short life can be, and having Callie by my side makes me realize I was a damn fool before. That changes starting right now. Calliope Ramirez is mine and I’m not going to waste the second chance that I’ve been given.

I really love this hockey series and always look forward to the next one.
RAFE is a short novella approx 14 chapters. I loved Rafe and Calliopes story, although it did take me a bit to get her name right in my head. I would have loved to read a longer version of their story, how they grew up living next door to each other and fell In love as teenagers only to separate when RAFE was drafted to an put of state team but with a good imagination I suppose I will just have to settle for using that instead.
Rafe and Calliopes story is bitter-sweet, they reunite when Rafe switches teams and returns home to be with his dying father. If you have read previous books you will be aware of Rafe's situation as it is mentioned in the previous books.
RAFE is a heartbreaking yet heartwarming story with second chances and hot moments that leads to a swoon-worthy hea. Sawyer Bennett writes brilliantly, always with the right mix of drama, sexiness and story-line, balancing everything perfectly.
Another book in this Arizona Vengeance series by Sawyer Bennett that I couldn't put down. Each book is interlinked due to the focus being on a different hockey player in the team but they can be read as stand-alone's. As always I will be looking forward to the next book.
