I’m happy to report that the super-hot hockey gods that Sawyer Bennett is known for in the Cold Fury series are just as hot and awesome in this series. I could not put this book down!  Or, at least I didn’t want to.  You know, work and real life got in the way.  And I will admit, at one point I could foresee something terrible happening and had to put it down for a little while because by not reading further I could stall the thing from happening.  (I’m not going to tell you if I was right or not because that would ruin it for you when you get to that point!)

Bishop is just such a nice guy.  I know, calling a man a nice guy is like the kiss of death.  But seriously, he’s a sweetie.  From the beginning of his fake relationship with Brooke, he is on her about not putting all the blame on herself.  He’s so considerate of her feelings and how things are affecting her even though the ruse has really put a damper on his social life.  The relationship that grows as Bishop and Brooke spend more and more time together is so natural and organic.  They have a beautiful connection.

My heart hurts for Brooke and her reasons for giving up a job she loved for a job she isn’t very thrilled with. What a wonderful woman she is, and such a caring daughter.  I will admit, it made me dislike her dad a bit since he had to have known she gave up a lot for him. When Brooke, yet again, puts someone else’s well being ahead of her own so Bishop won’t have trouble with his job, it’s just like second nature to her.  She’s definitely a mama bear type of nurturer.

The chemistry is off the charts with these two and they have both hot and touching love scenes in this story.  Again, the relationship progresses so naturally it’s almost like you don’t even realize it’s happening.

We meet a few of the teammates in this story to pave the way for future books.  It seems it may be a while before we get his story, but I cannot wait to learn more about Tacker.  He had my heart from the very beginning.  I have a feeling this series is going to be (somehow) even better than the Cold Fury series.

5 stars
