REVIEW – DAX (Arizona Vengeance, #4) by Sawyer Bennett


The Arizona Vengeance is killing it on the ice. But one player can’t seem to keep his eye on the puck—all thanks to the woman he just married to save her life.

“Find your next hockey hero in Sawyer Bennett’s Arizona Vengeance series.”—New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis

My name is Dax Monahan and hockey is my passion. And if you want to succeed in this sport you have to bust your ass 24/7. I’ve never had a hard time focusing on my career, but when my past comes knocking, no amount of training can prepare me for what lies on the other side of the door.

Regan Miles was always like a sister to me. When a shared tragedy brings us face to face after several years, I’m shocked to see just how much she’s changed. Gone is the shy, awkward little girl that always used to chase me and her brother around. Instead, I’m faced with a gorgeous woman who makes it damn hard to concentrate on anything but her.

Turns out, she’s in trouble, and the only way out is to get married.

I surprise myself when I tell her to marry me. Order her, actually. And most shocking of all, she doesn’t even hesitate before saying yes.

So it’s settled. We’re getting hitched and she’s moving to Arizona with me.  All platonic, of course.

The catch?
I never knew I’d fall so hard for my best friend’s little sister. 

The Arizona Vengeance series from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett can be read together or separately:

Regan is too good for a man like me. In a way, I feel like I’ve just tainted her. She’s nowhere near ready for someone like me.
And I really don’t think I’m ready for someone like her.



We’re now four books into the ”Arizona Vengeance” series and it’s getting even better with each installment. Not only does the book have an amazing cover, but it also has a couple of my favorite tropes– ”friends-to-lovers” & “romance with the older brother’s best friend”. With all that going for it, there wasn’t a doubt that ”DAX” was going to be a fun and steamy read!

Dax Monahan’s best friend, Lance Miles, was recently killed during a mugging. Lance leaves behind his younger sister Regan. Their parents died when Regan was fourteen and Lance had been her sole guardian since. After the funeral Dax learns that Regan has a serious illness and no longer has any medical insurance to cover the exorbitant amount it costs to pay for her medication. Without even blinking an eye Dax convinces Regan to marry him so that she would have his medical benefits to pay for her treatment.

Dax moves Regan from California into his home back in Arizona and it’s not long before things turn physical between them. Even though their chemistry is hotter than anything Dax has ever experienced before, he still struggles with feelings of guilt and doesn’t think that he’s good enough for Regan. The two agree to go back to the way things were, but soon realize that there’s no turning back. Will their marriage of convenience turn into the real thing?

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 4.5
Heroine: 4.5
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
