This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
New York Times 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.

Sawyer has done it again!
Garrett is another hit from Sawyer Bennett. I absolutely loved him in Alex and couldn't wait for his story. I love Sawyer and have read all of her books. They are all so great in different ways and for different reasons. The writing is witty and emotional and always funny. She writes her main characters so that they are strong yet vulnerable. I just love them!
Garrett it a major player and never hits the same woman twice. It's his thing and he's known for it. But when he meets Sutton's cousin, Olivia, all bets are off. There's something about her that calls to him and he wants her, and no one is more surprised than him that he wants her for longer than one night. Olivia is attracted to Garrett, but she knows who he is. She's hiding something and it needs her undivided attention, but Garrett is a welcome distraction. Can she keep her heart out of it? Can Garrett convince her to take a chance on him? This is an emotional story about seeing past people's facades and letting them see you at your worst and your best. I can't wait for more!
Am I wrong to view Garrett Samuelson as a "juice goodness"? Am I a complete slut to even consider this?
The kiss is like lightning, lighting me up from within, and my entire body goes tight with need for this woman.
"You're the one that's stunning, Olivia. I can't wait to see if you taste as good as you look."
"M&M's…peanut, " I say distractedly.
"I like those too," he says quietly. "They're chocolaty and nutty. But then again, so is Snickers, plus it has extra gooey stuff in there."
"You're a dork."
5++ Stars !!! Loved Garrett
Sawyer Bennett has completely captured my heart and blown me away with Garrett !!! This is a must read, full of sexy alpha male, a witty strong willed heroine, and enough emotion to leave you believing in love again !!!
WOW! I'm starting to LOVE hockey!
Wow! Who could have thought that Sawyer Bennett could take a sexy, womanizing hockey player and turn him into a man every woman dreams of? Enter Garrett Samuelson. This man likes to live each day to the fullest, whether it is playing hockey or spending time with a different woman every night....and then BAM.....enter Olivia Case. Yes, she is gorgeous and everything he wants for one night but the best part is she is not interested! Of course this makes Garrett try even harder. What Garrett doesn't know is that Olivia is dealing with a big health issue. While she would love to be a notch on Garrett's bedpost, she realizes that she cannot start anything up. After Garrett's relentless pursuit, Olivia decides to enjoy a night with Garrett before she has to begin her long journey to being healthy. After their night together Garrett realizes that Olivia is different and he doesn't want just one night with her, he wants many, maybe even forever. When Olivia refuses, Garrett again pursues her. Once he finds out about her health issues, he wants to be involved even more. I loved their story and the wonderful way Garrett was with Olivia. Everyone needs a special someone in their life like that. I loved their happy ending...it was perfect. I even really loved Olivia's boss, Stevie. He was a hoot! I didn't think Sawyer could top hockey player, Alex Crossman, but I was wrong. Garrett was just as sexy and perfect and Alex was!
