After meeting Garrett in Sawyer Bennett’s first Cold Fury Hockey book (Alex) I was so excited for his story. I love the man whores. I love the ones that change their way for that one special girl. The ones that aren’t looking for love, but when it hits them, they fall hard.

Garrett Samuelson’s life is perfect. He’s doing what h

I don't know where to start.

It has a good premise. Garrett is the king of one-night stands. He's fine with it until he meets Olivia, who is undergoing treatment for cancer. Suddenly, Garret was hit with insta-lust and miraculously turned into a faithful and committed schmuck overnight.

Can you sense my sarcasm? Yeah. I thought so, too.

But my biggest problem with this book is not the unbelievability of Garrett and Olivia's relationship but how this book was executed from b

This is the second book in the Cold Fury Hockey Series featuring Garrett. We first met Garrett in Alex’s book and I was immediately in love with the young sexy, playboy. I love this type of character, he is nice, charming, and hot as sin. So he uses these qualities to his advantage. Garrett is a good guy he doesn’t take advantage of women they know exactly what they are getting up front: no strings attached sex.

One night at a team party he sees Olivia and immediately wants to meet her. Olivia is

Cold Fury series has the hottest covers. I thought Alex’s, book #1, cover was smokin but I’m changing my mind and handing the award to Garrett for sexiest cover.

Garrett was introduced in Alex’s book as a womanizer who is looking for a good time. Having a different girl in his bed and not looking for anything with deep meaning has left him with a reputation that follows him.

Garret is about taking risks. It's about fear, facing it head on and overcoming it. It's about choices. Sometimes life can hurt but it can also be amazing. We have to hang on to those wonderful moments, cherish them and believe in the positive. Garret is a story about living.

Never judge a book by it's cover... Garrett Samuelson, the ultimate player in and out of bed, only ever wanted one shot with Olivia. But Olivia easily brushed him off due to his bad boy ways...but now, now things are different, funny how quickly your life changes and you rush to strive to really live. It was always supposed to be one night, just to give into her desires; at least with Garrett she knows for sure he knows what he is doing.

I have to treat this review with kid gloves, because I really don't want to give anything away. It kind of bums me out because I just have so much to say about the story, and also how close to my heart the subject that the couple have to deal with is. There is so much that I would love to share with you all in my own experiences; but I can't! In saying that though, I will tell you that this was a very special book.

Before starting my review I wanted to say that my rating reflects the fact that I had a hard time to focus on this story because of Olivia's "secret" (view spoiler) I don't deal well with book treating about illness (especially at the moment and for this illness in particular) and I don't usually read them. If it wasn't for that aspect I would probably given the book 4 stars.

If it wasn't for that aspect I would probably given the book 4 stars.

description

I met Garrett in Alex' s book and I was immediately attracted by this confident guy who seems fun. There's one thing you know about him is that you want to hang out with him just to have a good time. He's the type of guy who not go to too much trouble. He easily made friends and so I immediately wanted to know more about him.

Garrett Samuelson is a womanizer, he likes the company of women and likes to gives orgasms, have orgasms but nothing more. What he loves more than anything else is hockey.

He is a professional player and he's good at it. He lives to be on the ice with his teammates and nothing else.

Olivia Case is Sutton (Alex girlfriend) 's cousin ( and has a lot on her mind. She has just found out she is sick and doesn't really know what tomorrow will bring.

At first she doesn't want to be involved with him because she has no time for a boyfriend + she thought it's not really fair for him to start something which will lead to nothing.

After talking with Stevie, her best friend, she decides that after all, Garrett doesn't usually date and after his own revelation he doesn't go further more than three dates, so why not take advantage as long as she can and why not do it with an handsome hockey player.

Because I'm not going down without a fight, and If I do go down, I don't want there to be any regrets

I've liked Garrett honesty, he never pretends to be someone else and he is honest when he talks about his relation with others girls. He also honest with his attraction toward Olivia, and he just want to let it go, see where this relation will lead.

description

When he discovers Olivia's secret, he is a little confused but he doesn't get mad or try to blame Olivia for not telling him. No, he understands and he immediately stays by her side. He knows it's important for her to have his support and even though he doesn't really know how to react he doesn't go anywhere.

I don't do obligation. I live for what I want, and right now... I want you

The relation between them two was beautiful, sweet and sometimes heart-breaking. Garrett is amaze by the fact that finally he found someone who wants him for him and not his fame or something else.

I don't feel like I'm putting on a performance with you, and I know you don't need me to. You like me for me and I like that about you. It's just nice to be with someone that makes everything easy.

At some point, Olivia starts to panic because she doesn't want Garrett to suffer if something happens to her... but what if it's not up to her to decide?

description

Despite the fact that the part about the illness made me a little uncomfortable, I have to say I think Sawyer Bennett manage to deal it brilliantly. Of course, it takes a huge part but at the end you can feel the message is to give hope, that no matter what happen, you always have to believe and be strong.

I quite liked this book to begin with. The way they met was cute. The way their relationship developed was done well. I think after I while I just found myself not so invested in it and wanted to reach the end to see how it all plays out.

If you decide to pick this up I would say read the blurb as it is on the depressing/gloomy side. I would have rated this 4 stars but that epilogue ruin it and that rarely ever happens.

Who could imagine that a series with a bunch of hockey players could be so emotional???
Not me, that's for sure!!!

Don't get me wrong, every book had its funny moments but all of them are so emotional and they had prove me the strength that there is in any person, but damn, they hurt!!!
Still... i can not stop reading about those guys, even though my heart is breaking every time a little bit!!!

They worth it!!!

Everybody thought Garrett as a shallow person... His friends, his teammates... Me!!!
He loved the game. He love to play hockey... It's the most important thing in his life...
But he also like to have fun, to tell filthy jokes and to fuck different lady every night or maybe two...
I met him for first time in Alex's book and i adore that guy!!! He was so funny and he was such a good friend... He manage to earn Alex and that it is saying much!!!
Now, it's something about to change in Garrett and that something is coming with the form of Sutton's cousin, Olivia!!!

Olivia is a girl who likes her job in a flower shop, doesn't have many friends except Stevie and Sutton and lives an easy simple life...
But everything are changing in her life...
She just found out that she had cancer and she started to question everything that she knew.
The death maybe it's right outside her door and after she met Garrett Mathewson, she wanted to live her life to the fullest. And she will start with this nice piece of ass...
Everybody knows that Garrett is the king of the one night stands, so it will be perfect for Olivia.
She will have a wild sexy night, her first one-night stand, with a dreamy man and with that she will not have any regrets...


But what will happen when she will discover that Garrett for the first time in his life want to be with a woman... Olivia exactly???
What will she do with her plan??? And how can she let him enter in a life full of loss and heartness????
And Garrett what will do when he will finally find out about what Olivia is hidding of him????
Will he stay by her side or will he runaway????


Well, guys!!! This was an intense emotional journey!!!
I really liked Garrett's tranformation...
Garrett near to Olivia was a different person.
He was still funny, but he was caring for her with such intensity that made my heart racing wildly inside my chest...
Garrett was the strongest guy that ever existed... I really admired him about that...
He was so determined and courageous and he was showing no fear to the future...
Yeah, he had his bad moments sometimes, but that was totally understandable!!!

And Olivia was such a brave person... Even though her condition, she never once cry or let her pain to be shown to the others...
She was fighting her disease with all the power that she had inside of her...
She was a really strong person and she deserved Garrett...
They were so good together....
I only pissed off with her near to the end, even though i totally understand her reasons why she did what she did, it wasn't right for Garrett...


Also i want to tell that the people that surrounded them were fuckin' awesome!!!
If you have friends like them by your side you don't have to be afraid about anything....
And Sutton, Alex and Stevie were friends with big "F"...
(Love you, Alex!!! Just for those words!!!)

That story was so lovely, even though it was extremely sentimental...
And now, it's Zack's turn and i'm so scared!!!
I was in shock when it happened that shit and my heart was aching more than Olivia's struggle with her disease...

But i have to know how he will get through the tragedy that hit him!!!

I...absolutely...loved...this...story!

I was going to try to write a spoiler-free review, but then I noticed the book blurb sort of gives it away...:(

In a nutshell: Garrett Samuelson (26) is a star winger for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team. Garrett's a great guy, comes from a good family, has no real baggage, loves to play hockey...but he's a one-night-stand kind of guy. And there's no real reason for this lack of desire for commitment, nothing tragic in his past, he's just a young guy sowing his oats who has yet to meet THE ONE. But he hasI...absolutely...I

When I read a romance novel, I expect it to have:

- a plot
- three dimensional main characters
- dialogue that is interesting/witty/amusing
- a little bit of smut
- a realistic reason for there to be "trouble in paradise"

This book is a whole lot of smut, and that's about it. We're told about their first date, their trip to a beach, to an amusement park etc, but never get to actually "see" it because the author seemingly couldn't figure out how to write
