    Can history be forgiven?

    Marek by Sawyer Bennett is part of the Cold Fury Hockey series. We met Marek Fabritis in the previous book, Reed, and learned about Gracen Moore, the girlfriend he left years before in order to pursue his hockey career unhindered and the daughter he never knew about, Lily. Threatening and dragging Gracen away from the altar before she got married, Marek his furious about missing out on the child he never knew he had, but also guilty from leaving Gracen behind. He is not the same person he was four years ago and neither is Gracen. There is a lot of strife and anger between them, but the connection they have runs deep. Neither pulls any punches but they have to move forward for the benefit of their child. I liked Marek better in this novel than in Reed and felt that the progression that the characters go through to work out their issues, a lot of steps forward followed by steps back, felt realistic and worked with these characters. The support structure that Reed and Josie, from Reed, represented added depth to the story and helped develop the characters. Ms. Bennett creates characters who you can really feel for with a cast that just adds to the story. Overall I enjoyed Marek by Sawyer Bennett and recommend this next Cold Fury Hockey book. Gracen and Marek are complex, dynamic and passionate characters who lost each other but need each other to be whole. A very good addition. (I voluntarily reviewed an advance review copy of this book I received for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

    Loved that hot Dad!

    Love this series! 11th book, am I getting sick of it?!? That's a HUGE NO!!!! I could read about those Cold Fury boys all night long ;) This one had tons of feels like you'd expect from Sawyer Bennett, lots of ups and downs between Marek & Gracen...and sweet Lilly ❤️ Super steamy like you'd expect from this series! A HOT Daddy, yes please! I had lots of mixed feelings reading this, the words between them were pretty harsh at times and my heart hurt for each of them. So glad Marek got his story after Reed! Highly recommend this book, series & author! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Fantastic

    Loved it! These Cold Fury players are some of my favorite characters. Granted Marek wasn't a favorite at the beginning of this book. His treatment of Gracen, both past and present, did nothing to endear him to me. Eventually though as Gracen and Marek both let go of the past and start enjoying the present he started to win me over. By the end I could forgive him and I was a fan. As with any Sawyer Bennett book these are characters you won't soon forget. This is definitely one for the must read list. I highly recommend it.

    Marek

    I like this series from Sawyer. I have just finished this Hockey book as our team is trying to win the Stanley Cup! Marek has skates from 3. Gracen has loved him since they met. There are lots of tears through this story. Gracen has to buy her parents house! Owen jumps into the picture and will let them off the hook. Marek comes and saves Gracen to not marry Owen. Now Owen is blackmail! Gracen has a daughter that Marek didn't find out until later, 3 years! They love but can't say it. I like this book. It was a hard book to walk away from it. This is recommended for adult reading. Don't forget some tissues! I hope you will check this book out! You can choose your own book to read. You won't regret it! Enjoy!

    Eleven books in, I'm still crazy about my Cold Fur

    Marek's story started with a bang at the end of the previous book Reed. While technically I think this one works as a standalone, I think you will be better off if you've read Reed first because the bang really happens there, and then Marek picks right up where that one left off. And it was immediately gripping as Marek and Gracen adjusted to the ways their lives were suddenly reconnected, and the revelation of the long kept baby secret. Emotional and compelling - this wasn't exactly a fairytale romance, but it was a rather lovely romance nonetheless. I was afraid I would find Marek unlikeable, but I felt like the way he was written was very realistic and while he certainly has a temper and a whole lot of anger, it didn't get in the way of my connecting with him or his re-ignited feelings for Gracen. And there is literally nothing sexier than a man who is in love with being a dad, so even if there were issues elsewhere, Marek's relationship with Lilly would have sold me on him immediately. I also loved Gracen. I felt like she handled her role in their messed up situation with grace and dignity and a satisfying amount of humility. I also appreciated how she guarded her heart and that her fears were taken into account and handled respectfully as well. I identified with her and warmed to her easily. I loved the way she easily settled into a friendship with Josie, and how this story tied in so nicely with Reed. While I overall enjoyed the story, there were some awkward transitions that pulled me out of it and left me confused on occasion. I felt like the characters were as lovable and engaging as I have come to expect from Ms. Bennett's characters, but the pacing and the storytelling was sometimes just a little bit off for me. Not enough to ruin the story, by any means, but enough so that Marek was perhaps not my favorite Cold Fury story. In the end, it's emotional and sexy and easy to read. I loved the little family these characters made in the end (and good grief, but the ending was completely adorable). It's safe to say that, eleven books in, I'm still crazy about my Cold Fury men! ~ Shelly, 3.5 Stars
