The rugged men of the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team are winning hearts once again in another scorching novel fromNew York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett.
The stakes have never been higher for Carolina Cold Fury goalie Ryker Evans. With his contract running out, he’s got a year left to prove he’s still at the top of his game. And since his wife left him, Ryker has been balancing life as a pro-hockey star and a single parent to two daughters. Management is waiting for him to screw up. The fans are ready to pounce. Everybody’s taking dirty shots—except for the fiery redhead whose faith in Ryker gives him a fresh start.
As the league’s only female general manager, Gray Brannon has learned not to mix business with pleasure. And yet even this tough, talented career woman can’t help breaking her own rules as she gives Ryker everything she’s got. She hopes their hot streak will last forever, but with Ryker’s conniving ex plotting to reclaim her man, the pressure’s on Gray to step up and save a tender new love before it’s too late.
Ryker begins when Gray Brannon begins the owner of the Cold Fury Hockey team. But the problem is not many people think she can do it, since ya know, she's a woman! But Ryker thinks differently. And when Ryker and Gray can't seem to stay away from each other things start to go downhill fast. And neither one is sure of how to continue their relationship or what steps they should go through next.
This book was really enjoyable. I really loved the ending, and the way Gray stood up for Ryker in the end, and everything she did. However, I was a little mad at her in the beginning and middle of the book. But she did make up for it.
Ryker was just plain awesome throughout the whole book. He was a great alpha male and a wonderful father. He and Gray also made a really good couple!
So, overall this book was enjoyable, and I liked it.
