    Lots of issues for this couple

    Gracen is rescued from an unwanted marriage when Marek virtually kidnaps her and takes her to his home. Along with their daughter, Lily, he had not known about. They are both harboring seething emotions. Gracen for the way he dumped her years ago because he loved hockey more than her as well as wanting his freedom and Marek because she never told him she was pregnant and has kept his daughter from him for the last three years. This couple had a lot of issues to work out as they both suffer guilt as well as justifiable anger. I could clearly see both sides and was often bouncing back and forth over who I should pledge my allegiance to. I like my hero to be all in where the heroine is concerned so I struggled with Marek’s ability to walk away from Gracie after they had spent five years together and were in love. However, I also thought that there was no acceptable reason for Gracen to keep Lily’s birth a secret not only from Marek but his parents as well. No matter that he might have been a grade A jerk for leaving her. In the end, I began cheering for them as a couple as they start to work toward an amicable, steamy, and promising future. It was a rather rough road to travel and the angst was a bit on the heavy side due to Marek’s point of view never giving even a hint that he still loved Gracen. Did I mention I like my hero all in? Yeah, until the end I never really felt that from this hero. Overall, it’s a relatively fast paced read with a look at a few past Cold Fury characters and an ending that was really very nice. Lily was written exactly as I expect to see a young child behave which is sometimes tricky and I did love seeing Marek fall in love with her. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by NetGalley and Random House - Loveswept. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    LOVE this series!!!

    **Received ARC from NetGalley for a fair and honest review** Marek is book 11 in the Cold Fury Hockey series. This book can be read as a standalone, however IMO you lose some of the story by not knowing the other characters from the previous book. Again-- just my opinion. This book was a fast, fun read, hard to put down. Marek and Gracen were together for 5 years, then when he lands a position on a professional hockey team, he decides he wants his freedom and ends the relationship. But there are things he doesn't know, and things he should have been told. Now she's getting married and an anonymous email shows up and Marek gets upset. This is probably my least favorite book in the Cold Fury Hockey series. I wasn't a big fan of Marek, he came across mostly as selfish, spoiled and entitled. He does redeem himself, but his character really just rubbed me the wrong way. The characters had good chemistry, and I really enjoyed the story overall. If you like hot and steamy you will enjoy this book. I really enjoyed Lilly, the daughter in the book, wish we would have seen a little more dialogue with her- when you did see it, it was precious. Overall it was a good book, and I would recommend. Can't wait for the next book in the series. Hope this helps. Happy Reading!!!

    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.

    3.5 Stars!

    I'm a huge fan of this series from Sawyer Bennett so it pains me to admit that Marek's story was a struggle for me. First let me say you can normally read these as a standalone but I didn't read the previous book and I believe I missed the beginning of Marek and Gracen's story because of it. You do learn real quick what happened, but I do wish I had read Reed's book first. You also learn in the blurb that Marek finds out he has a three year old daughter he never knew about. This book deals with the struggle of the aftermath of all that. The author did a great job keeping this more realistic to reactions in real life but I prefer the more fairy-tale version. There was a lot of hurt on both sides. I probably should be mad at Gracen but honestly it was Marek who I struggled more with. I AM pleased with how they came together in the end and I loved that Reed kept giving Marek a hard time about how he was treating Gracen. I do love this series and all the guys in it so while this one isn't my favorite, I do highly recommend reading this series.
