The Arizona Vengeance are developing a reputation on the ice as one of hockey’s top teams. But one player’s reputation off the ice might just keep him from scoring. . . .
I’m having the time of my life with my new brothers on the Arizona Vengeance. We may be an expansion team, but after notching some big wins, the entire league knows to watch out for Erik Dahlbeck. That’s me.
The only person who doesn’t seem to think I’m so great? Blue Gardner, the hot-as-f*** flight attendant on our team plane. I sure wouldn’t mind joining the mile-high club with her, but besides bringing me lukewarm coffee, she won’t give me the time of day. Whatever I did to rub Blue the wrong way, my teammates think it’s hilarious. After all, we’re used to women flocking to us. #puckbunnies
When I run into Blue back on land, I’m shocked to learn how she spends her time off: taking care of her handicapped brother. There are layers to this girl I never imagined, layers I can’t wait to peel away. And that’s a new feeling for me.
But first I’ve got to find a way to melt that ice-cold stare. Because as much as I try to pretend I don’t care what Blue thinks of me, how can you not care when you’re falling for someone?
There’s just something about the way Sawyer Bennett writes her hockey series. It’s the perfect balance of the romance we crave and the sports we love. Erik just might be my favorite hockey book from Bennett to date. It’s a sweet and sexy second chance romance that is filled with fun, flirty and dirty moments.
Erik has the hots for Blue, one of the flight attendants that works on the chartered flights for Arizona Vengeance. The problem is, she wants nothing to do with him and he can’t figure out why. To him, that’s just a challenge he’s willing to take on but as things progress, he really starts to see Blue for who she is and he can’t get enough of her.
I like the two of them together. Erik is the reformed player who has a heart of gold and Blue is a strong, undefended woman who’s heart equally matches Erik’s. They are steamy, sexy and an overall fun couple that you naturally gravitate to.
This book is the second installment in the Arizona Vengeance series but it can be read as a stand alone. However, once you finish this book, you’ll want to go back and get Bishop’s story and you’ll be left dying for the rest of the team’s stories. I’m hooked, that’s for sure.
