Series: Cold Fury Hockey

Review: Marek – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Marek – Sawyer Bennett

Marek was a really good second-chance-at-love story, and I really enjoyed getting to know the background for his and Gracen’s break-up. Story: I have to say that in the beginning of the story, Marek acted like a jerk. There really is no other word for it – and while I could totally understand his anger and hurt, he did not try to make things better. Gracen was a real trooper, though, and did her best to take Marek’s anger in stride. And I really enjoyed how present Lilly was to the storyline. It’s not easy to have a hot romance while also including a young child! As Gracen and Marek got to know each other again, it was obvious they […]

Review: Reed – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Reed – Sawyer Bennett

Reed was possibly the best of the Cold Fury Hockey stories… I just loved his and Josie’s relationship, how they were friends first, and then wanted more. Story: The blurb of Reed does not bring the story justice. Reed is such a sensible character, and while he’s been playing the field with his ‘barbies’ until now, he is not a total womanizer. Once he meets his new neighbour, Josie, he realises that his life might not be as full as he thought up until now. I have such a love for friends to lovers stories, and that’s exactly what I got with Reed. At first the two characters were a bit tentative, but little by little they became close friends. […]

Review: Van – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Van – Sawyer Bennett

Van sure had a troubled past that managed to make his present kind of murky as well. But Simone – she was really something, and totally open to tear his walls apart, while also grabbing him out of his shell. Story: These two characters were like water and oil at first, and then, suddenly bam! they were rather like dynamite. Both Van and Simone were strong minded, and they knew what they wanted, or didn’t want as it were. Simone wanted to get to know Van better… much, much better. And he was good with keeping her and everyone else at arm’s length. Little by little, both Simone and Van shed their public persona and shared some of their secrets. […]

Review: Lucas – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Lucas – Sawyer Bennett

Lucas’ story was a bit frustrating at times, both because Stephanie was so closed off, and because it stopped rather abruptly – only to go straight to a kind of epilogue including Van rather than either Lucas or Stephanie. Story: Lucas was a story I had really looked forward to, so it might be that my expectations were a bit high. Cold Fury Hockey is one of my favorite series, and Bennett usually manages to sweep me off my feet immediately. The romance here was quite unconventional, because the two protagonists met at a party and agreed to a no strings hot night of sex. Which was all good and fun until there was a condom malfunction. Stephanie grew up […]

Review: Roman – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Roman – Sawyer Bennett

Roman showed a different aspect of the hockey club as well as the difficulty to live in that world, especially when the characters wanted to keep some private moments… private. I feel like I always say something about my big love for hockey players when I review a Cold Fury book, but it’s true! Roman made my toes curl in many ways. Of course the fact that he’s a bad boy didn’t make me blink even once. I’m not usually one for enforcers when it comes to hockey. They break up the game, and I think here in Europe, hockey is different from the way it’s played in the US. One thing I really enjoyed with Roman was that we got […]

Review: Max – Saywer Bennett

Review: Max – Saywer Bennett

Max is hands down the most swoony of the hockey players in Cold Fury Hockey, like a knight in shining armour, but with a wicked humor. I think Max wins the book boyfriend of the year prize for 2016 (as I read this last year). He was so amazing, he met a woman he found intriguing, and wasn’t scared by the fact that she was raising three young children on her own – having two jobs to make ends meet. Julianne was definitely worth waiting for, though, and while it took him a while to woo her, it was all so very sweet! Bennett always writes her heroes both alpha males and sensitive and sensible. I think it’s that mix […]

Review: Hawke – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Hawke – Sawyer Bennett

Everybody knows I love Cold Fury Hockey, and Hawke, he definitely made me melt, but then, so did Vale! Hawke’s story is very complicated, because he and Vale were together for four years when they were younger, up until the day he left Sydney for Pittsburg to play professional hockey. Then, she told him she didn’t love him, and she never looked back. Fast forward several years, and they meet again, when Hawke starts playing for Cold Fury Hockey, and Vale is the new PT / physiotherapist for the club. All of his feelings of betrayal and hurt come back to the surface, while at the same time he just can’t help but feel utterly attracted to her. The story […]

Review: Ryker – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Ryker – Sawyer Bennett

Ryker was simply fucking fantastic! From beginning to end, I was swept off my feet by both Ryker and Gray, they were such wonderful characters to get to know, and I was cheering for them all the way! My Ryker review: I already enjoyed Ryker when he arrived to join Cold Fury Hockey in Zach, and in his own book, that man is just completely made of amazing! Strong, loyal, loving, he is raising his two girls on his own after his wife left him for a much younger guy. I love a dad who is taking good care of his children, and he definitely did that! Being the sole provider for them in every way wasn’t exactly easy, though, […]

Review: Zack – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Zack – Sawyer Bennett

Wham! And my heart broke! Kate is so loving, tender, open-minded and amazing I fell for her almost as hard as I fell for Zack and his ornery ways! My Zack review: When I started reading Zack, I knew the story would be heart-breaking, what with him getting over Gina’s death, in a car-wreck where he was in the car as well. Dealing with the guilt, having to pick up his life and be a single father to Ben all  the while working on getting back in top physical shape so he could play hockey again. Most of his team-mates don’t really know how to act around him, and he has no idea what he has to do to truly […]

Review: Garrett – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Garrett – Sawyer Bennett

Garrett is a very hot read, but there is a lot more going on than Garrett and Olivia. Between the hockey-games, the romance and Olivia’s secret, it was quite a ride! My Garrett review: In Alex (Cold Fury Hockey #1) Garrett was known as Alex’ best friend, the guy who was always flirting, changing girls every time he went out, and never becoming serious with anybody. When he first met Olivia, however, he was completely mesmerized by her, and even more so because she bluntly turned him down, after laughing at his dirty jokes. When Sutton told him to stay away from his cousin because she had enough stuff going on in her life, he only became more interested in […]
