Mainer Farms is steeped in family history, but it’s also deep in debt from the effects of the ever-changing farming industry. Not about to let his family’s legacy go under, Colt Mancinkus is willing to do anything he can to save the farm. 


Darby Culhane is the new farmer in Whynot, North Carolina, and she’s proving to be quite the forbidden temptation for Colt. Darby isn’t looking for anything but a fresh start, and she’s got it all figured out. Get settled in? Check. Apply for the rural county grant? Check. Confrontation with the steaming mad, smoking hot local farmer? Well, that wasn’t on the agenda. 


As pretty as she is sweet, Colt can’t help but be drawn to Darby’s…peaches. No really, she’s a peach farmer. Get that mind out of the gutter, and get on down to the farm to see what happens when circumstances force Colt and Darby to team up. They may just find that the peach trees aren’t the only things in bloom.

Reed by Sawyer Bennett
Reed (Cold Fury Hockey) - Sawyer Bennett,Cris Dukehart,Graham Halstead

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

I really enjoyed this book! It probably comes as no surprise to anyone that follows my reviews that I love this series. I jumped into the series with the second book and have looked forward to each new book. I have yet to be disappointed. I decided to listen to the audio this time around since I wasn't sure when I would have the chance to sit down and actually read the book. This audiobook ended up being such a wonderful experience for me.

This book is all about Josie and Reed. Their meeting at the start of the book was not at all what I would have expected and I really wasn't sure how it would play out. Let me tell you that this book takes Josie and Reed from annoyed neighbors to friends to much more than friends with ease. I loved their journey and thought that they really seemed to work well with each other. They are playful with each other and really just enjoy each other's company. I thought that the chemistry between them was very well done.

I loved the characters in this book. Josie is an emergency room doctor so she is used to making tough decisions. She really is a down to earth character that likes simpler things like beer and pizza more than anything else. Reed is just a nice guy. He is in his off season so he is a bit more relaxed and has plenty of free time. At the start of the book, he is dating a string of Barbies but is quickly distracted by his neighbor. I liked how Reed just seemed to know what to do with Josie and I loved how they trusted and respected each other.

I believe that this was my first experience in listening to both Graham Halstead and Cris Dukehart. The book is told from both Reed and Josie's point of view in alternating chapters and I liked the fact that two narrators were used. I thought that they both did a fantastic job with the narration and really made each of the characters come to life. I think that they both did a great job handling all of the character voices and emotions of the story. I definitely plan to look for more of their work in the future.

I highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This was the tenth book in the Cold Fury Hockey series but it could easily be read as a stand alone since it does tell its own story. We do get a bit of a peek into what is going on in Marek's life in this book and I must say that I am really eager to get my hands on his book in just a few short months. 

Initial Thoughts
It comes as no surprise that I enjoyed this book. I have liked all of the books in the series that I have read so far so it was a pretty safe bet for me. Since I wasn't able to get my hands on an ARC for this one, I decided to grab the audio version from the library. I thought it was well done. The initial meeting between Reed and Josie was a little strange but I liked them together more and more as the book progress. I thought that the narrators did a great job. There was enough about Marek in this book to really get me excited for the next one in the series as well.

Reed (Cold Fury Hockey #10) by Sawyer Bennett
Reed: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel (Carolina... Reed: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel (Carolina Cold Fury Hockey) - Sawyer Bennett

Sawyer Bennett continues her winning streak with REED the tenth book in the Cold Fury Hockey series.  Reed Olson is celebrating the off-season after winning back-to-back Stanley Cup championships.   After a long shift at the hospital, Reed’s new neighbor, ER doctor, Josie Ives, knocks at his door to ask him to keep the noise down.  The two quickly become friends, making Reed question his usual “type."  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.


I loved this book.  Reed and Josie have amazing chemistry.  I like that they start out as friends.  They are fun and help each other grow.  I appreciated the way they met.  I love that Josie calls Reed out on his normal type of woman. Her various Barbie names are amusing.  Both characters are extremely likable.  I didn’t want their story to end.  I’m hoping we’ll see more of them in future books in the series. 


The couple have some interesting obstacles to overcome, especially with Josie’s ex, Aiden.  Aiden is a thought-provoking character.  He is extremely insightful.  You are never sure how you should feel about him. 


As always, Sawyer Bennett’s writing style is impeccable.  The story flows well.  REED is believable and heartwarming.  The book is interesting from cover to cover.  After the scene that occurs between Reed’s teammate, Merek Fabritis and his ex-girlfriend, Gracen, I cannot wait to read their story next, Marek (Cold Fury Hockey, #11).  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Reed: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel (Carolina... Reed: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel (Carolina Cold Fury Hockey) - Sawyer Bennett

Reed Olson plays for the Cold Fury Hockey team.  He is a typical single playboy type of player.  He has one type....blonde, tall and busty.  Now that the season is over, after having just won their 2nd Stanley Cup, Reed is taking advantage of some fun time.

Josie Ives is an emergency room doctor and recently moved into her new place.  Josie is looking for some nice, quiet down time when she isn't working.  What she ends up getting instead is woken up by her new neighbor whose headboard keeps knocking against her bedroom wall.

Having had enough, Josie knocks on Reed's door at 1:00 am to confront him.  Instantly there is an attraction between the two of them which is surprising since Josie is short, petite and a brunette!  Reed wants to get to know Josie and goes out of his way to do so.  The more time they spend together as just "friends", the more both of them want more.

It was such fun watching these two fall for each other and boy did they fall hard.  I really loved Josie.  She was strong, confident and such a great person.  Reed was a typical cocky jock but for some reason he really wanted to be a better person around Josie.  I'm glad they got their happy ending and I can't wait to hear more about them in the future books.  I also enjoyed the little sneak peek into Reed's friend Marek.  His story sounds like it is going to be really fun!

Quick Holiday Read
Soldier Under the Mistletoe (Snowbound i... Soldier Under the Mistletoe (Snowbound in Sawyer Creek) (Volume 1) - Lacy Williams

Soldier Under The Mistletoe by Lacy Williams is a very quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.  Ms. Williams has delivered a well-written book and filled it with amazing, lovable characters.  Sam and Mallory's story is packed with drama, humor and spice.  I enjoyed this short read and look forward to reading more from Lacy Williams in the future.  Soldier Under The Mistletoe is book 1 of the Snowbound In Sawyer Creek Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.


I won a copy of this book from Goodreads.
