    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.

    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!!! 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.

    I enjoyed this story. It was very moving in the story line, tears and giggles. I liked the characters strength, although he started out a bit whiny, she rocked. A little repetative in the sex scenes but they were well written.

    Alex by Sawyer Bennett

    This was the first book that I’ve read from Sawyer Bennett and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think it was the characters that really did it for me. They both had their own issues but they weren’t making huge dramas about it. The plot has a really good flow from one scene to the next that wasn’t overly dramatic. I like the way that the plot was more than just two lovers but rather how they helped each other heal and grow together.
