The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team proves that love is a power play. As Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling series continues, the league’s most notorious party animal gets blindsided by the one that got away.

Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn’t he? He’s worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She’s almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later—except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.

Vale Campbell isn’t the same girl she was at twenty. As crazy as she was about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking were starting to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that would never happen with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do—until now. Because she’s still crazy about Hawke. And if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.


Vale Campbell was the love of Hawke Therrien's life, but when she broke things off with him an he was left a shattered man, but headed to Pittsburgh without looking back, to become the star hockey player, he was destined to be. After 7 long years of working himself, through the ranks, up to the elite defense man; he traded to Cold Fury, Hawke plans to make an equal success there…that is until he finds out Vale is there too!

Vale was shattered when she had to let Hawke go, in order to save herself. She managed to get clean and start to make a better life for herself. But everything changed when her father became gravely Ill  and the only place to help him was Duke Medical Center. So through connections of her father, a perfect job was made for her at Cold Fury as an assistant Medical. But what she wasn't expecting was coming back into contact with Hawke, or still having feeling for him…especially when she already had a boyfriend.

But the closer they are, the more sparks that fly between Vale and Hawke. But can misunderstandings, missed calls and emails really be overcome or will old and new hurts destroy everything they could ever have together?!

I have to say I absolutely love Sawyer Bennett's Cold fury series! It has truly been the one sports romance series that I have stayed with! Why? Because the authors writing is not only thrilling, gripping and quite frankly brilliant! But she writes about real life! She writes that her characters are not perfect; but has flaws, addictions and have made such terrible decisions, that in real life, most people would have written them off. But I love the way that the author tries to give everyone a second and sometimes third chance.

So now I have waffled on about the writing, let's get to the plot! And WOW! It was a plot that I didn't see coming, but just fit perfectly in with the Cold Fury's band of misfits!

I absolutely loved all of the old and new characters in this book; and while I could talk forever about, how much I loved Hawke and Vale. I am left gasping for details about Avery!! I don't know why, but her character really gripped me and left me hoping that she finds her happy place, despite her really small presence in this book! So I'm appealing the author for information…and I'm not above begging.

I cannot even tell you just how much I loved Hawke! And if I could give it a billion stars I would! But seen as I'm limited, I will give it the maximum 5 stars! Because it sure as heck worth it!
