NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The Carolina Cold Fury hockey series continues as the team’s most notorious party animal gets blindsided by the one that got away.
Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn’t he? He’s worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She’s almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later—except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.
Vale Campbell isn’t the same girl she was at twenty. As crazy as she was about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking were starting to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that would never happen with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do—until now. Because she’s still crazy about Hawke. And if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.

Second Chance Romance Plus Hockey!
It's Cold Fury Hockey season again. Author Sawyer Bennett bring us new teammate, Hawke Therrien, defensive lineman to the team. However, the one thing Hawke never planned on seeing in the new lineup was Vale Campbell, athletic trainer.
I'm a sucker for second chance love stories. The one that got away and now you have a chance to redeem the errors of your youth and do it right. However, there is a lot of inability to trust and anger in the way of our Hero that makes it difficult to get to his HEA. I really fell in love with the heroine, Vale. She's picked herself up, moved on, taken on a difficult task and yet, is open to the possibility to love deeply again. Hawke and Vale's story isn't without it's ups and downs. Each one wants to let go of the past, yet struggles a lot. I found it intriguing that our Hero had the most trouble of 'let it go.' Usually authors give that to the female lead character. However, watching a man struggle with hurts of the past made the story different and captivating.
I am a huge fan of Sawyer Bennett's. Her writing is always flawless and storytelling is riveting. This new installment to the Cold Fury series does not disappoint. If you are a fan, this is definitely one to add to your bookshelf. If you have not had the opportunity to read any of her writings, she weaves the background to not let a new reader floundering. However, do yourself a favor and read the other books in the series- it's hockey hunk gold. 5 out of 5 stars
Fun, sexy read
This is the 5th book in Sawyer Bennett's Cold Fury Hockey series, and is defenseman Hawke Therrien's story about second chances at love. Seven years ago, Hawke's life was perfect. He was drafted into the NHL by the Pittsburgh Titans, and he was madly in love with his girlfriend, Vale Campbell. The night before he left for the NHL, Hawke, Vale and his friends had a big party. Vale was upset and left unbeknownst to Hawke. The next morning Hawke was frantically trying to find Vale since he had to leave to catch his plane. Once he finally does find her, she breaks things off with him breaking his heart. Hawke doesn't understands why and keeps trying to reach out to her and finally gives up after she refuses to talk to him. Hawke instead decides to concentrate on his hockey career and lives the life of a playboy.
Hawke has been traded to the Cold Fury. The first day of the season he shows up and who is now working there? Vale! It is obvious that there are still feelings between these two but they both are carrying leftover baggage from seven years ago. As they start working and spending more time together, they finally start talking about seven years ago. Hawke finally understands why Vale did what she did, but there are still underlying trust issues between them.
The journey Hawke and Vale went on over the past seven years was tough. If this couple would have just talked to each other in the beginning, a lot of their issues would have been resolved quickly. It was a sweet story of second chances ending with a happy ending. The added sub-story of Vale's dad was interesting with a lot of facts that I never knew of.
Overall this was a fun, sexy read of another Cold Fury player, and I look forward to Max's story next.
A must read!!
