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 girlisnt that how it always starts?and her name is Mollie. I like her. I mean really like her. I hope that doesnt make me seem less manly than my professional hockey player persona implies. But heres the issueshes 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. 

Kane is pretty new in Arizona but he likes it there.
Then there's Mollie. She's been his best friend since college.
She's a travel blogger and currently living in his guest room with her dog Samson.
Something happened on her travels and she needs a place to relax for a bit.
They've only ever been friends ...

Another adorable and funny and slightly heartbreaking story in this great hockey series.
I really enjoyed reading it.
I loved that we don't have this typical back and forth of dating and whatnot. They've known each other for ten years and bam they're in love. It was really cute. But also a bit too easy. Then we have that little bit of excitement with her ex and then a tiny bit of excitement at the very end. Which was cleared up way too easily and stupidly for my tastes. But I really enjoyed reading it and seeing all the other players and wives again.

Can we please get a Sawyer Bennett Hockey Netflix series??

A tiny thing that bothered me - other than Sawyer's overuse of the word AS ... there was a 'prayer-circle' thing happening and I wanted to throw my kindle out the next window! That shouldn't have happened in a sports romance - that's for christian romances!

KANE was another cute little love story in this great hockey series! ☺ Run to your nearest amazon for your own KANE - this one is MINE! 


As with every Sawyer book ... I had some problems with the writing... THIS TIME IT WASN'T ALL THAT BAD ...but I still noticed at least 8!
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!

ARC received from author for an honest review

Now that my beloved Canes are out of the Cup finals, I need to get my hockey fix through my books.

And Ms Bennett's hockey hotties are some of the best out there.
I love all a friends-to-lovers story, and when besties Kane and Mollie take that step it is all very cute, and maybe this is just my thing, but maybe things were just a little toooo easy?  Gah, who know what I am thinking.  I know they have known each other for a decade so that takes out all the getting to know you stage of dating, so who knows what I really wanted lol
We do have a couple of bits of drama throughout their tale, so it isn't all easy peasy for them. But they are so cute and lovely and adorable.

I adored getting more of the couples from the previous books in the series.  The whole Vengeance crew are one big happy family, and I love the way they are there for each other.
Also, fingers crossed, we got a little bit of set up for Baden's story? Oh please, I need to know more there.

I love that there are always comings and goings to the team, so I want this series to go on forever and ever.

Please make this happen Ms Bennett!
