New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett hits the ice with the story of a playboy athlete whose winning ways lead him to a beautiful woman with a lot to lose. Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see. Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.Advance praise for Garrett “Garrett is a sizzling and emotional read with laughter and secrets thrown in for good measure. Sawyer Bennett had me at hello.”—New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan “Garrett took me on an emotional roller-coaster ride. It’s sexy yet heartwarming, with a totally swoon-worthy hero.”—New York Times bestselling author Melody Grace“What you see with Garrett Samuelson is certainly not what you get. There was so much more to him. He was just waiting for the right girl to show it.”—Feeding My Addiction Praise for Sawyer Bennett’s Alex “Wow. Just wow. Sawyer Bennett is my new favorite author.”—Jami Davenport, USA Today bestselling author of Skating on Thin Ice “Warm, witty, and fun, with sparkling dialogue and great characters including a bad boy hockey player, Cold Fury has it all! I’m eagerly awaiting the next in the series.”—Katie Rose, award-winning author of Bring on the Heat “Sawyer Bennett has scored again with Alex, the perfect combination of sexy and emotional. I can’t wait for the next Cold Fury story!”—Julie Cross, author of Third Degree “Alex’s redemption is what makes the happy ending possible and will make readers smile.

What better way to embrace this horrible winter than with a HOT alpha, hockey player?! Garrett Samuelson is the man on the Cold Fury Hockey team and you absolutely MUST meet him! Well, if you’ve read Alex then you met him and you probably fell just a little bit for the fun and cool friend. It is absolutely not necessary to read Alex for you to enjoy Garrett since it can be read as a complete standalone, but if you are like me, you probably want the full story. And believe me, Sawyer Bennett is my go to author for all things hot and male and sexy and sports related. Garrett is charismatic, he is good friend, he is loyal, and he is a damn good hockey player. Of course possessing all of these qualities comes with a love’em and leave’em attitude that he has adopted well. That is until he meets Olivia Case. Will she be the game changer for this untamable man?
When Garrett first lays eyes on Olivia, he is HOOKED. Beyond hooked. He is blown away by her beauty and by her quiet yet commanding presence. She is Sutton’s cousin, Alex’s wife, and she attends a party with her. She has a lot going on in her life and unfortunately for Garrett, she has no interest in dating. Garrett is persistent though. He makes it his mission to get her to agree to go out with him and finally gets his way. Of course they connect, she’s different than any woman he has known and he wants more. For Olivia, things are complicated, and the last thing she needs is to get involved with anyone. At the same time though, a fling with a sexy hockey player may be what the doctor ordered.
Soon feelings are involved and that secret that Olivia has been holding onto comes to the surface. Garrett becomes that man that we all hoped and knew he could be. He really steps up to the plate and boy did he make me fall hard for him. I did have a few issues with how the storyline was executed as I found it hard to believe that Olivia would have all of that energy for smoking hot sex but hey, it can happen I guess. Live life to the fullest right? Bottom line is Garrett Samuelson the man and Garrett the book are a MUST meet, MUST add to your TBR. Sawyer Bennett writes fantastic characters and always delivers a powerful story. I am a forever fan and will read anything that she puts out. Now the wait for Zack is on…cannot wait for more from this sexy series!
