Known as the team loner, Riggs Nadeau gives his all on the ice, but nothing extra off it. A beautiful stranger is about to cause chaos in his very structured world.

As a professional hockey player, people think I live a charmed life. On the surface, I do. But they don’t know the horrors of my childhood, or the real reason that I have custody of my seventeen-year-old sister, Janelle. And that’s exactly the way I like it. They may think I’m a prick because I don’t like to share, but that’s fine. They don’t know me, and they don’t need to.

In an effort to help Janelle get settled in Phoenix and stay out of trouble at school, I set her up with a job at Clarke’s Corner, the local bookstore owned by the girlfriend of a teammate. It’s there that she makes friends with Veronica Woodley, the extremely annoying, arrogant, money-hungry divorcee who I don’t want anywhere near my sister. Janelle insists I’m completely wrong about Veronica, but I refuse to accept that. I have to keep reminding myself that that the gorgeous blond with legs for days is off limits.

Through a series of events, I start to see Veronica for what she really is—an amazing woman who has survived her own hell to come out even stronger. I have to admit, we’re more alike than not and the attraction between us burns hot.

Maybe I was all wrong about my ability to love and commit, but when the past comes back to haunt me, can I be the man that Veronica, and Janelle, deserve?




VERONICA + RIGGS

We met both of them in previous books.
Veronica is book-store-girl Clarke's best friend.
She's a mega rich divorced lady about to stop working at the store to go back to school to finish her business degree.
And Riggs. We've been waiting for his story. He's the new guy on the team who is not yet really part of the team. Especially the social part of it. He's not going out for drinks, he doesn't talk much. But he has his reasons. He took in his 17 year old sister and he doesn't want people to ask questions and talk or judge...

Riggs and Veronica do NOT have a love at first sight moment 🀣... but we'll get there!

LET THE FUN TIMES BEGIN...


Another adorable and sexy little story in this great hockey series.
I really enjoyed reading it. I was waiting for Riggs to tell us his story for ages. Same as with Baden - I so need him asap!
Riggs and Veronica do not make the best first impression on each other. But still ... there are super sparks. It was really adorable watching them not fall for each other. 🀣
I didn't love that they didn't even meet until 25% of the book was already done. But most of that was filled with introducing us to the sister. Which I liked - she should get her own book soon!
Anyway - I really liked reading this.
And now ...after that ending - I need Baden's book asap!

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

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





ARC received from author for an honest review
 
I say it all the time, that Sawyer Bennett could write the chinese takeaway menu and I would read it.
 
However, to me, I think we should be getting to the end of the Arizona Vengeance series.
 
And we are getting there. And to be brutally honest, I was only wanting to read Riggs as a stepping stone to get to Baden, but I was also glad that I did read Riggs' story.
 
After the last couple of Vengeance books that were not favourites of mine, it was good to see Ms Bennett back up there with stories that, to me, did the guys justice.
 
I totally get Riggs' standoffishness and his title as the team loner, and I loved seeing him come back to life with the help of his sister and Veronica,
 
You remember her? The rich lady (and best friend) at Clarke's book shop. This really isn't a love at first sight - heck, not even like at first sight, but that was what this gunshy pair both needed.
 
And that ending - well, let's just say that I NEVER read bonus chapters/into to the next book at the end of books, yet this time I did, and I NEEEEEED Baden's book ASAP!

Get thee to a book retailer and indulge in Riggs.
