  • For hockey chicks

    I can't say I was impressed with the originality of this book. The addiction angle was good, but I can't say I hadn't read it all before. I was moved a few times, but I thought the ending was pure literary masturbation for hockey chicks. Not my cup of tea.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Enjoyable sports romance

    When I decided to read Alex, I thought that it would just be another sports related romance. I was very pleasantly proven wrong. Yes, it's about hockey and yes, there is romance, but it's also about the journey of our characters to find forgiveness and healing. Alex is our flawed hero. He has demons and a complicated history which has closed him off from the world and any meaningful friendships or relationships. He made some mistakes in the book, but he always remained painfully honest and in the end tried to make amends. His cocky attitude and antagonistic behavior was a turn off initially, but as you peel back the layers and look past the walls he's built up around himself, you really see the vulnerable and lovable Alex. I was invested in his redemption and was rooting for him and Sutton from the start. Speaking of Sutton, she was such a great character. I loved how honest she was, but also how she was both brave and insecure/fearful. As the story unfolds, you find that she has her own baggage to deal with, but she hasn't given it power over her life. She calls Alex out on his decisions and stays true to herself, even though it breaks her heart. I enjoyed reading about and getting a feel for who Sutton was through her work and her parents, and I especially liked her relationship with her little brother Glenn. They were so sweet to each other and always had the others back. Another thing I really enjoyed was being able to be in both characters heads. The dual POV really worked for me and it made the emotions all the more intense as the story played out. I wasn't a fan of the eventual push away (even though it was a given it was going to happen) and I did feel like it was out of character for Alex to make a 180 turn in personality so quickly. It did provide lots of swoons though ;) I thought the epilogue was completely perfect and I was grinning ear to ear as I finished the book. I can't wait to continue on with this series, since I loved getting to know Garrett (he provided a lot of comic relief!) and the next book is about him.

  • Wow!

    Wow!!! This is my first read by Sawyer Bennett & I loved it. It was a very powerful story with a strong message on forgiveness & how addiction affects lives. The story of 2 people finding love unexpectedly when put together by his hockey teams management. Forced to be a celebrity endorser of an addiction awareness program for be benched Alex meets Sutton. They are both drawn to each other but try to keep their distance until Alex decides that he needs to be with Sutton for reasons he can't explain. Their pasts are similar both growing up with an addict of sorts which brings them even closer. Sutton & Alex fall hard for each other but when Alex's playing takes a hit his only option is to eliminate Sutton from his life believing her a distraction, big mistake. Can Alex win her back? Will Sutton make him grovel & work hard for her forgiveness? Great story, well written & it kept me so caught up I didn't want to put the book down. Definite recommend.

  • One of the BEST!!!

    I love sports romance and Sawyer Bennett's players make up some of the best. Alex Crossman is best described by the Cold Fury hockey fans as MVP, most valuable (it's not player). Yeah, he's that unpleasant. When he's forced to work with Sutton Price, by Cold Fury management, on an anti-drug abuse campaign, he's not happy. That is until he finds out that Sutton is a woman and a gorgeous one at that. Alex is not a relationship kind of guy but the longer he works with Sutton the more he's wanting things he's never wanted or had. If I didn't have more books to read in the series, I'd read this one again. I love it that much. Alex is a very complex man because of his upbringing. He's still living his life stuck in the past. Sutton has made her life very simple. She has dealt with her difficult past and moved on. Their journey is inspiring. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.
