Published by LoveSwept (Random House)
Hockey star Alexander Crossman has a reputation as a cold-hearted player on and off the rink. Pushed into the sport by an alcoholic father, Alex isn’t afraid to give fans the proverbial middle finger, relishing his role as the MVP they love to hate. Management, however, isn’t so amused. Now Alex has a choice: fix his public image through community service or ride the bench. But Alex refuses to be molded into the Carolina Cold Fury poster boy . . . not even by a tempting redhead with killer curves.
As a social worker, Sutton Price is accustomed to difficult people—like Alex, who’s been assigned to help her create a drug-abuse awareness program for at-risk youth as part of the team’s effort to clean up his image. What she doesn’t expect is the arrogant smirk from his perfect lips to stir her most heated fantasies. But Sutton isn’t one to cross professional boundaries—and besides, Alex doesn’t do relationships . . . or does he? The more she sees behind Alex’s bad-boy façade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers.
Sawyer Bennett has a fabulous new series featuring hot hockey players. The Cold Fury series is a Stanley Cup win! I am addicted to the Cold Fury icemen.
Alex is book one in the Cold Fury series. He is a superstar player on the ice with a very nasty attitude. He is not a team player. He has anger issues that follow him outside of the rink. He is the most hated player in the league and on his team. Does he care? Hell no! He is biding his time, playing the game as long as he can, socking his money away, and looking forward to giving the sport his preverbal finger when he no longer has to play. But until that time he has to jump through the hoops and learn to play nice. Management has ordered him to fix his public image and do community service.
What starts out as a mandatory visit to help social worker Sutton Price with her anti drug project turns into more than wanting to get into her pants. She has a way of drawing people in with an understanding smile, a non judgmental attitude, and actions that speak louder than words. Not only is Sutton teaching Alex how to love himself, she is teaching him to love the game he clearly detests.
Alex is an emotional story that will take the reader by complete surprise. This book is not about your typical bad ass hockey player with an ego larger than life. This story is about a man that has been severely abused and wounded in the harshest way. It is a story of healing, acceptance, and love.
Sutton and Alex are magical together. They share a passion that is timeless. Together they find the perfect balance in life.
The secondary characters in this story will steal your heart as well. Alex by Sawyer Bennett has earned it’s name in the winner’s circle. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Garrett, coming February 17, 2015. This man stood behind Alex when no other teammates would. He has a story that is going to steal our hearts.
I highly recommend Alex by Sawyer Bennett.
