LIVE – KANE (Arizona Vengeance, #8) by Sawyer Bennett

Kane (Arizona Vengeance, Book #8)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: September 15, 2020

 

Synopsis:
Are you ready for Kane Bellan’s story?

I have a problem.

Potential problem?

I’m not really sure. Here’s the deal.

There’s this girl—isn’t that how it always starts?—and her name is Mollie. I like her. I mean really like her. I hope that doesn’t make me seem less manly than my professional hockey player persona implies. But here’s the issue—she’s my best friend. The one person I can count on for everything, who’s been there with me for all the moments, big and small.

When Mollie shows up at my door, travel weary and scared following an incident with an ex, my instinct to protect her goes into overdrive. It’s then that I know she’s more than just my best friend and the skates are swept out from under me when I find out she feels the same way.

Our transition from friends to lovers to potentially something more is seamless, the Arizona Vengeance is back on the ice looking for a repeat championship, and my life has never been better. Just when I think I’ve got it all figured out, the realities of us both having careers which keep us on the road put our blossoming relationship on ice.

It feels like the game just went into overtime and I’m on the verge of either the biggest win or most disappointing loss of my life. And losing is never an option.

About RAFE:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett comes a new story in her Arizona Vengeance series…

I was living my dream until one phone call changed everything.

As the second line center for the Arizona Vengeance, my mind has been on one thing—helping my team bring home a championship. But that all changed when I found out my dad had cancer and only months to live. In that moment, nothing mattered more than getting home to North Carolina to be by his side. That meant asking for the unthinkable—a trade to the Carolina Cold Fury.

Now I’m home and when I’m not on the ice with my new team, I’m helping care for my dad. And in the midst of my grief, I find comfort from the one person I never expected.

Calliope Ramirez stole my heart at a very young age. The beautiful, smart, headstrong girl next door, she was my first… everything. She has never forgiven me for leaving her, believing that I chose hockey over a future together. What she doesn’t understand is that every decision I made was for her, and I’ve never given up hope that one day we’d be together again.

Watching my dad slip away is a harsh reminder of how short life can be, and having Calliope by my side makes me realize I was a damn fool before. That changes starting right now. Calliope Ramirez is mine and I’m not going to waste the second chance that I’ve been given.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Excerpt:

“You look like a fairy sea princess,” I tell her truthfully.

She blinks, waterdrops fall.

I can’t help it… I start laughing.

Immediately, I snap my mouth shut and bite down hard on my tongue. “I’m sorry.”

Calliope blinks again and then her lips part.

I snicker.

Then snort.

Her beautiful eyes narrow on me, and the next thing I know, she’s sending a wave of nasty pond water right at me. It catches me full in the face, hits the back of my throat, and I choke on it. I deserve it.

When I clear my eyes, Calliope is bent over, laughing hysterically, her shoulder dipping down into the water. The sound of her lilting voice is music to my ears, and I don’t want it to stop.

So what’s a guy to do?

I splash a wall of water back at her. She sputters and looks stunned for only a moment before her palms slap at the pond’s surface, and I’m caught full in the face again.

Then it’s on.

We both go at each other, laughing and splashing. Calliope comes up to her knees. She wobbles in the sucking mud but gets better leverage on me. I’m entirely doused by wave after wave. I hold up my arms, trying to protect myself, and suddenly realize I need to go more on the offensive.

I lurch up, lunge at her, and grab her wrists to stop the inundation. She’s laughing so hard she barely has any strength left to fight against me. Her face is flushed despite the chill, and I can’t fucking help myself.

I crash my mouth down on hers, feel her freeze in shock for a moment, and then gobble down the sultry groan that warbles out of her. It heats me to my bones, and then we’re clawing at each other.

Grabbing, fisting clothing, attacking each other with our mouths. My hands make their way back to her face, intent on holding her still so I can consume everything she has to offer.

The kiss is atomic, off-the-charts hot, and filled with so much emotion I don’t know whether she’s coming at me with hate or something else.

Doesn’t matter.

I’m not stopping.

Then something comes over me…a calm that feels like a steadying hand. I slow myself, make an exploring and leisurely swipe of my tongue against hers, and she melts into my body. An arm around her waist, I pull both of us to a standing position, the water lapping at my lower legs. I haul her into me and kiss her with all the regret I’ve been carrying around in my soul for years—a sincere apology.

LIVE – TACKER (Arizona Vengeance, #5) by Sawyer Bennett


Tacker (Arizona Vengeance, Book #5)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: November 5, 2019

 

Synopsis:
I am not okay.

Fifteen months ago, my life was turned upside down when the plane I was piloting went down. Injured and trapped in the wreckage, I had to watch my fiancée die a painfully slow death, which is something that can really mess with your head.

Since that day, I’ve had little desire to do much of anything. Except play hockey, that is. Because that is the one place where the bad memories are banished and I can escape my pain.

But off the ice, I’m spiraling out of control. Losing the grip on my life and putting myself and my career in danger. Now, thanks to a string of bad decisions, I’ve been ordered to complete therapy in order to stay on the team.

The problem? Nora Wayne, my beautiful and somewhat unconventional therapist. I can’t buy into the brand of happy clappy crap this woman is feeding me. What could she possibly understand about the type of loss that I’ve suffered? How does she know anything about finding happiness after losing the most important person in your life?

Turns out, I’ve got a lot to learn, and she’s just the person I need to break through those walls I’ve erected.

I am not okay.
But for the first time in a long time, I know that I will be.

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided By Author}

”She turned on a fucking light in my darkroom. She’s the one who flipped the switch.”

 

 

 

It feels like it’s been an eternity’s worth of waiting to finally get Tacker Hall’s story. He’s the one Arizona Vengeance player that has intrigued me from the start. His life was turned upside down when he lost his beautiful fiancé in a plane crash. He was the pilot! In Tacker’s book, we learn just how deeply tortured he is and we finally find out what happened on that fateful night. No one has been able to break through his walls he put up and Tacker nearly ended it all during a drunk driving incident. Now he’s forced to seek therapy or be kicked off the team. Nora Wayne is a psychologist who uses unique therapy methods to help her patients. She’s the perfect therapist for Tacker because she too has suffered tremendous loss through nightmarish circumstances.

Tacker and Nora make the perfect couple and you can’t help but hope they have the happily ever after they both deserve. Their stories are equally horrific and heartbreaking. While I loved the characters, I felt like something was missing. The anticipation had built so much to get to Tacker’s story that I think my expectations were set too high. There was little angst which I’m used to getting in these books, and maybe that was missing because these two characters had suffered enough in their short lifetime. Overall, it was a very sweet and touching romance. Tacker and Nora’s story will touch your hearts!

Here are my overall ratings:
Hero: 4
Heroine: 4
Plot:
Angst: 4
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 4

TACKER release on November 5th.

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

Dax (Arizona Vengeance, Book #4)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: July 9, 2019

Synopsis:
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.

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.

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

SYNOPSIS

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.

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****4.5 STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

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

Come on down to see what’s cookin’ between Larkin and Deacon!

 

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****4.5 STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

”Love doesn’t have time frames or set limits. It’s either there or it isn’t. In fact, the people who wait months or even years to figure it all out make me question whether it’s really love they feel. Sounds to me like they need convincing, and love shouldn’t need that.” 

 

 

 

It’s time to head back to the quaint little town of WhyNot, North Carolina, to find out if the last remaining single Mancinkus sibling is about to get her true love story. ”GIMME SOME SUGAR” focuses on the shy and beautiful baker who has put her personal life on hold to run her successful businesses for entirely too long. When Larkin isn’t working, she’s curled up on her couch with a good book. Everything changes for her when a sexy stranger rides into town on his Harley with his “Sons Of Anarchy” bad boy exterior. Deacon has no shortage of women swooning over him, but it’s the tiny and full of life Larkin that has captured his full attention.

Deacon Locke is an ex-marine and a nomad. He lives his life traveling down the open road and has not found a place or met a woman that has tempted him to want to call one place home. Then he meets Larkin and suddenly he’s finding any reason to delay his departure from WhyNot.

 

 

This is a slow build romance, heavy on the sweet but light on the steam. The characters are lovable and Deacon’s backstory is a little heartbreaking. I was rooting for these two to find their happily ever after. It would seem that it was definitely headed that way although we’re left wondering along with Larkin, whether or not Deacon would be able to retire his nomad ways. Will he head out of WhyNot on his Harley when things get a little too serious between him and Larkin, or will the nomad with no ties to any place or anyone, finally settle down?

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 3.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

LIVE – LEGEND (Arizona Vengeance, #3) by Sawyer Bennett

Legend (Arizona Vengeance, Book #3)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: February 5, 2019

 

Synopsis:

The Arizona Vengeance is hockey’s hottest new team. But hockey’s hottest goalie is learning that even the best players sometimes need an assist.

Everything is clicking for the Vengeance. We may be new, but we’re well on our way to winning the championship, and I’m having the time of my life headlining the sports media as the hottest goalie—hell, player—ever. I for one am going to live up to my name . . . because I am Legend Bay.

Dragging my ass home from the gym, I’m blinded by some gaudy, glowing holiday lights. As usual, my hot-as-hell neighbor Pepper Nantais has gone way over the top. But just as I’m about to tell her off, something else catches my eye . . . Seems like Santa left me a present, and not one I was expecting.

As life takes an unexpected turn, I realize that there’s much more to Pepper than meets the eye. Sure, she’s gorgeous. And exasperating. And her taste in decorating may be a bit . . . unique.

But beneath her carefree demeanor is a fierce determination and a heart of gold. And before I know it I’ve fallen for her. Hard . . .

Pepper is exactly the woman I never knew I needed.

I’m a big fan of Sawyer Bennett’s “Cold Fury Hockey” series and I must be honest when I say that the “Arizona Vengeance” hasn’t measured up until now. ”LEGEND”, is sexy, heartfelt and even has some nail-biting suspense.

Readers who love a romance with a hot & single daddy, are sure to enjoy this one. Legend and his love interest, next door neighbor Pepper, were introduced in the earlier installments. Their romance started off as ”enemies-to-lovers” but in this book the sparks and intense emotions between Legend and Pepper are barreling forward fast and furiously. It all starts when Legend comes home one night and finds a newborn baby girl in a car carrier on his front porch. From that moment on he turns to Pepper for help and the chemistry between them sparks almost instantaneously.

Legend steps into the role as father to little Charlie with great ease and for a guy in his early twenties, he had a deep maturity level along with a sensitive side that almost had me thinking he was a woman. But that didn’t make him any less swoon-worthy.

We also get a glimpse into the lives of Legend’s buddies and teammates, Tacker and Dax. I can already tell that their stories are going to be extremely emotional and I can’t wait to get my hands on these books!

Here are my overall ratings:

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