USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett scores big-time with the first novel in a sexy new series hot enough to melt the ice. Hockey star Alexander Crossman has a reputation as a cold-hearted player on and off the rink. Pushed into the sport by an alcoholic father, Alex isn’t afraid to give fans the proverbial middle finger, relishing his role as the MVP they love to hate. Management, however, isn’t so amused. Now Alex has a choice: fix his public image through community service or ride the bench. But Alex refuses to be molded into the Carolina Cold Fury poster boy . . . not even by a tempting redhead with killer curves. As a social worker, Sutton Price is accustomed to difficult people—like Alex, who’s been assigned to help her create a drug-abuse awareness program for at-risk youth as part of the team’s effort to clean up his image. What she doesn’t expect is the arrogant smirk from his perfect lips to stir her most heated fantasies. But Sutton isn’t one to cross professional boundaries—and besides, Alex doesn’t do relationships . . . or does he? The more she sees behind Alex’s bad-boy façade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Alex's story is the first in the Cold Fury series. I decided to re-read it and review after my enjoyment of the Ryker book I reviewed earlier this month. These are all standalone novels. For understanding and enjoyment I always recommend reading series in order. Alexander Crossman is known for h...

It felt like a real love story as they dealt with serious issues in a relationship. Hockey player Alex is forced to volunteer at a drug crisis center working with counselor Sutto...

Years of abuse from his alcoholic father forced him to isolate himself from everyone, but after one meeting with Sutton, his walls slowly begin to come down and you can't help but f...
