The Arizona Vengeance is killing it on the ice. But one player can’t seem to keep his eye on the puckall 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.

We already heard some of his story in Legend's story. This book takes place around the same time - at least some of it is overlapping.
In Legend we heard that Dax's best buddy back in New York has died and that he went to help his sister with the funeral and other things.
The little sister of his best friend. The little girl who used to follow them everywhere ...
She's not that little girl anymore. And she desperately needs his help now. And the only way to help is to marry her.
Living together as a married couple without touching and falling for each other?
Let's see how that goes ... ☺


Book 4! Yay!
We already heard some of this story in Legend's book and I was really excited to find out what would happen with Dax and his buddy's sister.
And it's adorable. And really heartbreaking.
And it's also really funny and full of sparks and tension and sexiness.
I adored Dax and Regan. That poor boy is so not ready for his happily ever after - he thinks he has a lot of single-guy-living still to enjoy. Too bad the woman of his dreams is now living with him. Plus she's also his wife. It's just adorable! I loved it. Great romance!

There's also a bit of Tacker in this book - he is still one of my favorites of the bunch of players - we so need to get his story - but he still has a long road of healing ahead of him until he can fall in forever ever love! But he'll tell us his story very soon! Can't wait! And then it's Dominik and Willow. Their story has already started too. YAY!!!

I had some problems with the writing...as with every Sawyer book.
It's Sawyer's and my THING ☺ It's only me who has those problems with her writing. So please don't be worried or just scroll down and don't read the following...
  I have a HUGE AS problem! ☺ You know the AS's I'm talking about? The AS that could/should be exchanged for a SINCE or a BECAUSE or just a comma/dot/pause/whatever.☺ It's a British and or legal thing (if it's a thing at all!) and it doesn't have anything to do in an American book by an American author. I really don't want to insult Sawyer. I love her books, but  ... please stop doing it. But pfff who am I to tell her what to do, so just forget I said anything! It doesn't stop her books from being great!

DAX was an adorable & sexy & heartbreaking hockey love story!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Dax - this one is MINE!!!!!

Woot! Another Sawyer Bennett hockey hottie to add to my collection!

If you have read the earlier books in this series, you will have already met Dax - if you haven't - why not?? You are missing some awesomeness.

Dax kind of runs parallel to the previous book Legend, and it was wonderful to see some of the stuff from Legend's book from another perspective.

Dax is my kinda man.  Takes no sh!t, looks after those he loves - even if it is in a very alpha way - and just took my heart with him when the book ended.

This book is an emotionally draining book at times, as Dax and Regan  navigate their way to their new "them".  I laughed, I shed a couple of tears, I got frustrated and angry and hopeful as well.

We also get more set up for Tacker's story -this is the one I am really, really hanging out for, as well as Dominik's story.  Oh, this one is going to be a fiery one me thinks!

Each and every time I pick up a Vengeance book, I tell myself it can't be as good as the last one, however Ms Bennett has not disappointed me yet.

Gimme, gimme, gimme Dominik and Tacker's books now - please.  I need them in my life!

The Cold Fury Series ...



 USA Today Best-Selling Author, Sawyer Bennett is a snarky southern woman and reformed trial lawyer who decided to finally start putting on paper all of the stories that were floating in her head. She is married to a mobster (well, a market researcher) and they have two big, furry dogs who hog the bed. Sawyer would like to report she doesn't have many weaknesses but can be bribed with a nominal amount of milk chocolate.
