The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team proves that love is a power play. As Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling series continues, the league’s most notorious party animal gets blindsided by the one that got away.
Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn’t he? He’s worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She’s almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later—except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.
Vale Campbell isn’t the same girl she was at twenty. As crazy as she was about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking were starting to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that would never happen with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do—until now. Because she’s still crazy about Hawke. And if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.
I was provided a review copy by Loveswept; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
This series is terrific!
I love the Cold Fury Hockey series! Sawyer Bennett keeps me entertained with each book she puts out from this series and ‘Hawke’ followed suit. I loved it!
With each book in the series, there is an “issue” the main character has to overcome or one that someone important to the main character has to overcome. This adds heart to what could have been a simple sports romance.
I loved these characters and their story!
Hawke was deeply in love with Vale seven years ago and she pushed him away leaving him devastated and leery. Now after all those years where hurt and anger were allowed to fester, she is back in his life as the new athletic trainer for Cold Fury, where Hawke is a new team member.
There is a story there, something that happened which Vale has never told him. The reason she pushed him away. They had a wildly intense relationship. She loved him just as deeply, and now when Vale sees him again, she is sad and afraid.
When Bennett gave us glimpses into their past, I swooned. There’s was a love that should have made it. This made me root for them even more!
I loved Hawke’s attentiveness, his love for Vale, his vulnerability.
I loved Vale’s (what an awesome character name) strength, determination, and unwavering support for her father.
Sawyer Bennett intrigued me with the Prologue and sold me with the Epilogue. A wonderful second-chance romance that will have you rooting for love!
4.5 Rooting For Love, Stars!
