USA TODAY BESTSELLER • New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett steams up the ice all over again as the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team’s hottest bad boy gets his first taste of something good.
In a league full of troublemakers, Cold Fury defenseman Roman Sýkora stands out—at least when it comes to negative publicity. When he’s not chilling in the penalty box, the sizzling Czech skate demon is racking up tabloid headlines for his scandalous behavior with the ladies. But now Roman’s feeling the burn from management to clean up his act, or else. Luckily he’s got an enticing distraction: a fun-loving barista who plays the ukulele and brings out a side of Roman he didn’t know he had.
Lexi Robertson came to Raleigh, North Carolina, to finally meet her father, Brian Brannon, and her half sister, Gray, both of whom work in the Cold Fury’s front office. That’s where she first meets sexy, intimidating Roman—who’s really a big softie at heart. As one relationship takes off, another begins: Brian seems to be clicking with Lexi’s boss at the coffee shop. But when the friction between Roman and her new family heats up, Lexi wonders whether she’s a pawn in their game. Feeling hurt and foolish, Lexi’s ready to quit while she’s ahead. Trouble is, Roman’s not ready to quit on her.

flat out fun
Roman is known as a bad boy with a rep that is difficult to dissuade with all the negative press he’s been getting. That press has caused some waves with the management, Grey Brannon, of the Cold Fury Hockey Team.
Lexi has been working in a local bar, getting up the nerve to meet her biological father, Brian Brannon, which happens to be the owner of the Cold Fury Hockey Team. She doesn’t want anything from him, just wants to make that family connect. Brian didn’t know he had another daughter so it comes as quite a bit of a shock to both Brian and his daughter Gray (Lexi’s ½ sister).
Lexi and Roman hit it off right away but her relationship with Roman causes waves with her trying to build a relationship between herself and her sister.
Roman is a flat out fun, sweet and endearing, everything you want in a contemporary sports romance. From the start, I was hooked and Bennett kept me completely invested till then end.
I received this ARC copy of Roman from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept in exchange for a honest and voluntary review.
Another good Cold Fury book
Roman is another good book in the Cold Fury series. Roman is a balls to the wall hockey player who gives 110% to the sport. He doesn't have anything else in his life and lives for the game. He doesn't have the greatest reputation and is often in trouble with management. When he meets Lexie, he never thought he'd want more than a night with her, but she stole his heart when he wasn't looking. Lexie has come to town to find the family she didn't know about until recently. She is proud of who she is and what she has accomplished on her own. Roman and her new family can't help but to fall in love with her.
This was a really good read and it was fun to watch Roman figure out what a real relationship is. For someone who hasn't had to or wanted to make time for others, it was fun to watch him as he wanted desperately to make Lexie happy and couldn't get enough of her. This was a good read. I loved catching up with some of the others that we've met throughout the series as well. Good read.
Another home run (or should that be goal??) in the Cold Fury series from Ms. Bennett. Roman is a little bit cocky, a bit of a troublemaker, and a whole lot of yummy. Being called to the GM's office isn't anything new for Roman. Being the teams enforcer has landed him in trouble more than once. This time though while waiting to be called in he meets the most interesting woman he's met in a long time. Lexi Robertson is definitely a woman he wants to know better. Will she give him a chance when her newly found sister fills her in on his reputation?? Trust me you want to find out. I highly recommend you grab a copy of this one.
