book-blurbNew 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.

my-review5 Stars

When I first realized that the books in the Cold Fury hockey series would revisit the same season over and over again but each time from a different player’s perspective, I was honestly worried that the stories would get tired and redundant.

However, the cool thing is that I found the complete opposite to be true. Each book brings a fresh outlook and a fun, new story that’s different from the last. It’s been awesome to see how one period of time can be so different for so many people who are basically encompassing the same experiences.

The latest release follows Roman’s season.  He’s the team bad boy – on and off the ice – and after a few bad choices, he finds himself fighting to stay on the team.  That struggle becomes even worse when he becomes smitten with the one girl who should be completely off-limits, Lexi.

Sweet Jesus. Roman and Lexi… these two are this lightning storm of passion.  From the first moments they interact, they have this crazy, intense chemistry.  Sparks fly as they verbally challenge one another with their quick wit and banter.  It’s hella hot and it leaves you praying that they give into their lust.

They just have one major stumbling block.  See Lexi just recently introduced herself to her father and sister – they had no clue that she existed.  And now, she’s desperately trying to find her place in their world as the owner’s daughter.   Complicating the matter, her new sister – who is also the team’s general manager – does not like Roman nor does she know what to do with this new relationship wither Lexi.

It’s just a hot mess.  So Lexi and Roman fight the feelings they have for one another.  However, that decision hurts them both and leaves them wishing things could be different.

It’s a bit of an up hill battle to get things worked out but Roman and Lexi’s romance was entertaining as hell.  I loved every minute I spent with them. I devoured all their heartache and drama, desperately craving more from them.  It’s an excellent romance and a fabulous addition to the Cold Fury series.  I highly recommend you check this series out – it’s definitely a winner!
