New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett goes for a hat trick with the latest romance in a sexy series about cool-as-ice hockey players and the women heating up their lives.
Rising star Zack Grantham has been stuck in a downward spiral of grief ever since the car accident that left him a single dad and put his career on hold. Back on the road with the Carolina Cold Fury and still crippled by emotional baggage, he’s in need of some serious help with his son. But while the nerdy new nanny wins his son’s heart, Zack isn’t sure he’s ready for a woman’s touch—even after getting a glimpse of the killer curves she’s hiding under those baggy clothes.
Kate Francis usually keeps men like Zack at a distance. Though his athlete’s body is honed to perfection, he refuses to move on with his life—and besides, he’s her boss. Still, the sparks between them are undeniable, tempting Kate to turn their professional relationship into a personal one. But before she makes a power play for Zack’s wounded heart, Kate will have to open him up again and show him that love is worth the fight.
Sawyer Bennett keeps creating the hottest hockey players!!! This Southern girl may not know a tremendous amount about hockey, but I sure know that I love hockey romance and this newest in Sawyer's Cold Fury series continues to make that statement hold true! Not sure what I expected from Zack but it definitely exceeded every expectation in major ways!! The character development was stellar. Zack and Kate were the perfect compliment to each other, even when they were driving each other crazy! The story was funny, sweet, heartbreaking, hopeful, sexy as all get out and sad at the same time! So many feels!!! What starts as the story of a man trying to find his way and move forward after losing his longtime love and mother to his son, it evolves into a story of two people finding a connection they didn't expect and don't know how to avoid. But it's also the story of a man fighting his attraction and afraid to allow himself the chance to really love another person. Loved the interactions between the characters, the new ones and those from the previous two books! Whether it was Zack and his friends, especially his new bromance with Ryker (ready for his arrival I must say!), he and Ben(his son), Kate and Ben, or Kate and the girls (loved that Sutton and she become so close!). They all served to make the story more than just a romance but even more about surviving life; that we all need relationships to hold us up, to build us up and to help us grow. Both Zack and Kate together were fantastic, but all those around them helped them to be that fantastic and helped the other to see the best in themselves as well as the other! Even when Zack was being frustrating and I wanted to chunk a hockey puck at him for being stupid, I loved him and the connection that he and Kate had! I loved every second of this book and part of that reason was because I love a story that shows the beauty of two people finding perfection when they were desperately just trying to survive. Because isn't that what we are all trying to do in this world at times, we're just trying to survive but when we are lucky enough to find someone that makes the journey perfectly imperfect well that's just perfection in my book! Great job Ms. Sawyer!!
