The Carolina Cold Fury’s hot new star shows his bad-boy teammates that even nice guys can score big in this steamy hockey romance from the bestselling author of Ryker and Hawke (“Sexy, emotional, and fantastic!” —Sandi Lynn).
The ice is a cold mistress. As the league’s most eligible goalie, Max Fournier has access to his fair share of willing puck bunnies, but right now he’s more interested in bringing home another championship than a one-night stand. A romantic at heart, Max believes in love; he’s just not great at relationships. So when he finally meets a nice girl who’s not blinded by his celebrity, he’s feeling the heat—and the pressure to save her from herself.
Between working two jobs and raising her sister’s kids, Julianne Bradley doesn’t have time for sports—or men. All she knows about Max is that he’s the sexiest customer to ever grace her gas-station counter. And he sees past her tired eyes and makes Jules yearn for things she can’t have: a glamorous fling, a passionate lover, and the time to enjoy both. Max makes her feel like Cinderella, even though Jules has enough baggage to crush a glass slipper. Luckily, he’s no prince—only a fierce competitor determined to win her heart.

#NewRelease #BookReview MAX by @BennettBooks #ColdFurySeries #mustread
I LOVE the Cold Fury Hockey series by Sawyer Bennett and up until now I had two favorites tied for #1, Alex and Zack. Sorry boys, but Max has taken over the top spot.
Max was the ultimate romance hero: patient, romantic, loving, funny, wonderful, a smidge of possessiveness, a friend and completely worth swooning over.
Jules, like most of the women who bring the men of the Cold Fury to heel, was beautiful, strong, independent and proud. She’s an overworked single “mom” who gives Magnificent Max a chance to be in her life along with the children. Who the hell wouldn’t?
With Max by her side, Jules deals with her pride and insecurities and holy hell the hotness that is the sex between these two. If you’ve read the other books in this series or anything written by this author, then you know you will not be disappointed.
I can’t say too much without spoiling it so just know that you will fall madly in love with this man who knows what he wants and stops at nothing to get it. We all want our very own Max and since some of use these books to take us away from the real world, enjoy your return to Raleigh or if it’s your first visit, go back and start from the beginning and find that you’ll never want to leave.
