Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot.
As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that’s kept him from getting involved in relationships—or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can’t refuse…and Van meets a woman he can’t resist.
Simone Fournier is the stubborn one in her family—and that’s saying something, considering her brothers are two of the Cold Fury’s biggest stars. Simone gets what she wants, and what she wants is Van. Still, there’s a part of him Simone can’t reach, no matter how hard she tries. In private, he’s all fire and passion. In public, he freezes her out. Van may want to push her away, but Simone won’t let him go that easily. Because this time, she’s playing for keeps.
The Carolina Cold Fury series from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett can be read together or separately.
Everyone knows I am a big Hockey fan…
And even though I skipped some books in this series, (don’t ask me why because I don’t even know) I was very excited about reading this one. 😉 Sawyer gives us another very steamy (and a bit kinky) addition to this wonderful series. I wonder how many she’ll add since we are in book 9 already!
Not that I’m complaining…no sire!!
Anyways…this time it’s Van’s turn.
He played a part in the previous book, but no worries… all these books be read as stand alone’s. 😉 Simone is the sister of Lucas and Max ( books 6 & 8 ) and she is quite the feisty woman! She is not afraid to go after what she wants and what she wants right now is Van!
Van isn’t an easy catch though…
When she does catch him, they agree to a “just sex, no strings” relationship…or should I say non-relationship. 😛 We all know how that works out though… there are always gonna be feelings involved…You would think they would all know by now!
I really enjoyed this one, just like all the others I have read in this series.
Van was an awesome character and I really liked Simone! Their chemistry was through the roof and the sexy times were SMOKING!!
All in all, another awesome addition to the series and I myself can’t wait to see what will be next!!
