The rugged men of the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team are winning hearts once again in another scorching novel from New 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.

We already met him in the last book - he's the new goalie and he just got sole custody of his two little daughters. (Because his idiot wife had an affair with an ex-team-mate of his, and she doesn't have time to take care of kids when she's on the road with a hockey star.)

The team and most fans don't really love their new goalie yet - because they think he's at fault for losing an important game last season - but there's one person who still believes in him:

She's the new team-manager.
The first ever female in this job.
Not everybody on the team is accepting her ....
She's the one who recruited Ryker last season and she's convinced he will be perfect for the team - and perfect for her too? Yes, he's hot and funny and smart and adorable - but the boss can't start something with a player....or can she??

Well, she can - but nobody can know!!!

Ryker's ex might also show up again and stir up trouble!
She wants him back.

And the whole secret affair thing might be too much for Ryker and Gray....

I'm not telling you that of course...


Finally a new book in this adorable Hockey series.

He's so adorable - the single dad with his two cute girls.
And he's falling for the tough new boss-lady.
Only Gray is not really all that tough.
She's sweet and smart and she just wants to be loved by a guy that loves her back.
But to get her HEA she'll have to fight everything and everyone in her business life.
But - of course, as we all know - being with Ryker will be sooo worth it ☺

And I especially loved that we got to see all our old hockey friends again - like Zack - who's soooo funnily trying to propose to Kate ☺☺☺

RYKER was another adorable and sexy and funny and cute Sawyer Bennett Hockey-Romance!
You'll love it!!!!!

Book #5 will be about Hawke - I have no idea who he is - but I can't wait ☺

Another hockey-hottie?  Sign me up!

I have adored each and every one of the books in the Cold Fury series to date, and I always know that I am not going to be disappointed in any Sawyer Bennett novel.

We met Ryker Evans in the previous book, Zack.  Not much was known about him other than he is a single dad with sole custody of his 2 beautiful girls, because their mother didn't want the responsibility whilst running around with her boy toy.

That alone got me.

I loved getting more of his back story, but most of I, I loved how he is with his new boss-lady, Gray Brannon.

Who could not love Gray.  She is smart, sexy, business savvy - and making history in the world of hockey.   And she can feel that pull to Ryker, no matter how much she tries to fight it.  She just wants someone to love her.
There is an undeniable attraction between our lovelies, and I just wanted them to tell the world "eff it" and go for it! 

So, can Ryker and Gray overcome all the hurdles to their HEA, or will it all be too much?

I loved that we got more of the other Cold Fury boys - I especially loved Zack and Kate!

Ryker has some funny moments, sad moments, some laugh out loud moments. Most of all, I just didn't want to put it down and did not want it to end.

I am looking forward to book 5, Hawke, though I don't know anything about it yet!
