Garrett by Sawyer Bennett Review

Cold Fury Hockey # 2
By: Sawyer Bennett
Releasing February 17th, 2015

USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett hits the ice with the story of a playboy athlete whose winning ways lead him to a beautiful woman with a lot to lose.
Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.

Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.

This is the second book in the Cold Fury series by the marvelous Sawyer Bennett and I LOVED every second of this story.
I am hoping you have all read Alex (book 1), if not, no worries! It can be a standalone. Anyway, if you did read Alex’s book, you will remember Garrett the manwhore/King of one night stands. Well he has finally got his own book, when he meets his match in Sutton’s cousin Olivia.
Olivia just found out she has cancer, even though it has knocked her for a loop, she is determined to live. Fist she decided she would take on the King of the one night stands, but Garrett surprises everyone, by making it more than one night. Garrett then surprises them all again, when he stands by Olivia’s side. He is determined to be there for her, until she stops him in his tracks.
I honestly didn’t think that I could love Garrett more, after getting Alex and Sutton back together with the Love Actually ploy in book 1! But I was wrong, wrong, wrong! Ohhhhh how I love his character, his determination, his love and putting his fears aside for the women he loves. Olivia’s character was so strong and yet so vulnerable at the same time. Sutton’s character was a little annoying in this book, but maybe that’s because she doubted Garrett. But yea for Alex! He is a fierce defender of his friend.
Overall this book was well written and informed. The research the author did in to the medical was extensive but not overwhelming. I found no plot holes and as in the first book, the ending was so freaking amazing!!!!!!
As you can tell I really enjoyed this book and give it 10 out of 10! I am hoping for another Cold Fury Hockey book soon.
