Van by Sawyer Bennett
Van - Sawyer Bennett

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This was great! Honestly, I think that this may be the hottest book in the series so far. If you follow my reviews, you probably already know that I am a huge fan of the Cold Fury Hockey series. I jumped into the series with the second book and haven't looked back although I should probably check out the first book at some point. This is a series that works great as stand alone books but fans of the series will appreciate seeing well loved characters for just a bit. Van is a excellent addition to the series.

I went into this book hoping that I would like it as much as the others but not sure that I would warm up to Van as a Hero. Let me assure you that was not a problem because I fell completely in love with him. He has such an interesting history that really explains some of his behaviors. He is really a great guy that has spent his life trying to remain distant from other people.

Simone was something else. She is the baby sister of the two Fournier brothers that have been the Hero of their own books, Max and Lucas. Simone is at a crossroads in her life and is trying to figure out what direction she wants to go. One thing that she knows she wants is Van and I loved watching her go for what she wants. I loved how Simone isn't afraid to take risks and was so willing to put her heart on the line.

This book actually takes place at the same time as the previous book in the series. You do not need to read the previous book to enjoy this one but I really enjoyed seeing certain events from a different perspective. The book opens with Simone moving into the house the her brother shares with Van. The chemistry between Simone and Van was wonderful and grew throughout the story. If you are looking for a steamy story, this one brings quite a bit of heat. I just loved this pair together.

I would recommend this book to others. I had so much fun reading this sexy romance with great characters. I can't wait to read more from Sawyer Bennett very soon!

I received an advance reader edition of this book from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept via NetGalley.

Initial Thoughts
Whew! This may be the steamiest book in the series so far. I liked Van and Simone together a lot.

Van - Sawyer Bennett

I just adore this series!  Every hockey player's story have been awesome so far and Van Turner's story is no exception.

Van is currently living with his teammate Lucas Fournier.  When Lucas' little sister Simone comes to temporarily live with them, that is when the fun begins.  Van and Simone are both emotionally guarded and emotionally explosive people and when these two finally hook up....WOW!

Van likes to act like an a$$hole and pretend that nothing bothers him, but in reality, that is not true.  He has a whole past history that has bothered him so much he was withdrawn socially from anyone.  Too bad Simone doesn't care about how Van acts, she just wants Van.....ANYWAY she can get him!

It takes one, stubborn, pushy female to finally get through to Van, but when Simone finally does....it was well worth it.  I just adored Simone.  She is such a strong female and goes after what she wants even if it isn't the normal thing to do.  Van may have seemed like not the world's best guy, but after realizing about his past, you can certainly understand why he is like he is.

Overall I loved the explosive journey these two went on to get to their happy ending.  These two were so hot, it was crazy!  The epilogue was even perfect too, although I must say I never would have guessed at that ending!

Release Day Blitz - Van

 

Van (Cold Fury, Book #9) Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: November 28, 2017

 

Synopsis:

 

Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot.

 

As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that’s kept him from getting involved in relationships—or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can’t refuse . . . and Van meets a woman he can’t resist.

 

Simone Fournier is the stubborn one in her family—and that’s saying something, considering her brothers are two of the Cold Fury’s biggest stars. Simone gets what she wants, and what she wants is Van. Still, there’s a part of him Simone can’t reach, no matter how hard she tries. In private, he’s all fire and passion. In public, he freezes her out. Van may want to push her away, but Simone won’t let him go that easily. Because this time, she’s playing for keeps.

 

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

Van (Cold Fury Hockey, #9)Van by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #9, in the Cold Fury Hockey series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order. Authors note: This book has simultaneous timing with LUCAS, book #8.

Simone forces herself on her brother and his helpless roommate. She moves in and turns Van's life upside down. She is immediately attracted to him. This helps distract Simone from all the serious issues she needs to ponder while living with the guys.

Van is so fed up. With everything Simone has to offer. She is pushing him almost to his limits. Good thing he can resist her. Or can he? If only his past was not full of secrets.....

Such a great storyline! There is such depth to the characters. I loved the sexy times, the banter, the struggle, it just all paced out so well. I found myself eagerly turning the pages. I truly love this series and this story was a great addition.

About the Author:

 

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists. A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

 

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

 

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.

It may have only been a 'Fair Game' but it was an awesome story...
Fair Game - Josh Lanyon,Sawyer Allerde

It's been a few years since I last read this book and now that I've got myself equally entrenched in the world of audio books it seemed inevitable that Josh Lanyon would be one of the authors that I'd want to revisit on audio and her 'All's Fair' series is one of my favorites.

'Fair Game' is the first book in this series and even though I've read it more than once I simply couldn't resist listening to it on audio. 'Fair Game' is a mystery with a solid romance to it as well. Elliot Mills has had to change careers after getting shot and teaching history seems like a safe profession...until students start going missing and turning up dead getting Elliot involved when he's asked by his father to find the missing son of a friend. Things get complicated when Special Agent Tucker Lance crosses paths with Elliot. They'd been partners and lovers back when Elliot got injured and things didn't end well.

I loved this story back when I first read it and listening to the audio book narrated by Sawyer Allerde has only allowed me to enjoy it all over again. His narration was solid and very nicely ticked all of the boxes on my 'things I like in an audio book' list. His was consistent, his voices were expressive and added depth of emotion to the story making things even more intense at time and I love a story that keeps me on the edge of my seat and my heart pounding with anticipation...so it was definitely a win for me.
