I love me some hockey books! For some reason, it is my favorite sport to read about. I have no interest in hockey in the real world, but fictional hockey is my jam ;) Hawke is book five in Sawyer Bennett’s Cold Fury series, but can be read as a standalone. I’ve enjoyed all the books in this series, and though this wasn’t my favorite, it was still a great read!

Unlike the rest of the series, this book is a second chance romance. Hawke and Vale dated through some of high school and co

Reading about sexy hockey players and their love lives is very… addicting. Cold Fury guys really turned me into obsessed fangirl. Following them and their shenanigans was always enjoyable and entertaining experience. New addition to the series, Hawke was of course no different.

As you already know, i looooove this series...
I love all the characters of the previous books and i feel them like my own people!!!
Yep, okay!!! I have a preference to Zack and his sitter and that little toddler, but i love them all...
Who can you pick as better from this bunch???

And yes, i'm in the pleasant position to tell you that Hawke wasn't an exception, even though that he was new in the team...

I'm a huge fan of not only this series, but the author, so I'm probably a little biased when I say that this book was amazing, but oh well! I loved Hawke, and really liked getting his story.This series has been great from the start, and I really like how Sawyer Bennett makes it possible to read each book separately without needing to remember every detail of what happened in the last one.

In Hawke we get to meet a newer team member that's joining the Cold Fury Hockey team, Hawke, and the

I absolutely love the Cold Fury series. I became a fan of these hockey players a long time ago and anxiously look forward to every release. Each book features a different couple and can be read as standalone.

Hawke is new to the Fury this season, but is happy to be playing with some of his hockey buddies. That is until the first day when he meets the new athletic trainer, Vale Campbell, the one that got away.

I love how Sawyer told this story. The beginning shows Hawke and Vale years prior when

We return to the Carolina Cold Fury Ice Hockey team for book five in Sawyer Bennett’s hugely popular series. As you can probably guess from my rating, Hawke didn’t reach the heights that the first three books did, and he sunk even lower than Ryker, on the enjoyment scale for me.

But the difference between Hawke and Ryker, is that I actually liked Ryker, it was a struggle for the to feel anything more than slight

Sawyer Brown has created this world of Hockey players and I have fallen for it. I have read all of the books and like life, loved some more than other. Yet saying that, all of the books approach situations head on. She takes things which could happen in the Real World and puts them front and center in our Romance one. I think that is why I appreciate her talent so much.

Hawke is the 5th book in the Cold Fury series and is a second chance romance.

I have been reading some books from this author lately and again it’s a winner for me. I really like the writing style of SB. She also created some amazing characters. I haven’t read the prior books in this series and hope to resolve that soon. After this book we’ll get the story of Max … another one to look forward to ;)

An angsty, swoony and sensual second chance romance.

But his seemingly perfect life is lacking the woman who at the beginning of his career cut him loose and irreparably shattered his heart without even bothering to tell him why. Now his stats have landed him in one of the best NHL teams there is, alongside Vale Campbell who vaguely resembles the untamed girl he fell in lov

Oh, Hawke. How you disappointed me. I've been a fan of the series this whole time so I had high expectations for Hawke's story. If I could choose only one word to describe him, it would be selfish. Vale leaves and hurts him partly out of immaturity, largely to save herself. They were very into each other almost to the exclusivity of everything else and someone had to make the hard choice so Vale did. Years later they reconnect when she starts to work with his team and it seems they have some unr ...more

This is a second chance romance for Hawke and Vale.

Hawke Therrien is a new addition to the Cold Fury team, in the first team/staff meeting they introduce a new member of the PT staff Vale Campbell the woman who broke his heart seven years ago.

Let’s just get this out of the way. I LOVE this author. I can’t stop reading her books.

Hawke is the fifth in the Cold Fury Hockey Series which pairs up Hawke (of course) and Vale, in this second-chance romance.

Seven years ago Hawke lost the girl he loved. A girl that gave him no reason for the break, so off to the pros he went. But seven years later, imagine his shock when he looks up and sees her standing in the locker room of the Cold Fury.

Vale Campbell was a free spirit, nothing was off lim
Well, not my favorite of this series, that's for sure. It's hard to pinpoint, but I think it's because of the characters. I liked Hawke well enough (until he got all wishy-washy with his feelings near the end--surely you know if you love her?), but I know I didn't really care for Vale. The hideous way she 'dumped' Hawke early in their relationship--and wouldn't give him a reason why--made me really dislike her. But I thought maybe there's a really good reason why that will be revealed later... B ...more

I love the Cold Fury Hockey series! Sawyer Bennett keeps me entertained with each book she puts out from this series and 'Hawke'  followed suit. I loved it!


With each book in the series, there is an "issue" the main character has to overcome or one that someone important to the main character has to overcome. This adds heart to what could have been a simple sports romance.

I really love second-chance romances. This one was especially good. I devoured it in a day.

This book, however is not just about second chances. It's also about the miracle of a first love, a lasting love, a love that can conquer all. Sounds really vanilla and cheesy when I write it that way ... but Sawyer Bennett writes this story in a way that makes you fall in love with the characters and want to see all that wonderfully, over-sentimental and gooey good stuff happen.

It's not all rainb

There's just something about a hockey romance that I cannot resist. I am not even sure why that is because while I like hockey, I am not a huge fan or anything but I love these books. I think that this book has just the right amount of sports worked into the plot to make everyone happy. Hockey fans will love all of the hockey references but the sport doesn't take over the story either. I found this book to really hard to put down and complete

I’m always giddy when I’m about to read a book by Sawyer Bennett. She is by far the author I’ve read the most and I’ll follow her no matter what she writes. She’s an author with many talents, able to write on different subjects and I love that aspect about her.

Hawke was a sweet loving story about two people with a lot of resentment that comes from years of misunderstanding.

Hawke and Vale are both young and reckless when they started their relationship. Even if they see themselves last forever, o
yeesh, I waited so long to dive into book 5.

Hawke was an okay book. Not my favorite of the series but wasn't my least favorite either. It was just in between and okay. It's definitely a second chance at love with Hawke and Vale but there's a lot of secrets between these two.

Of course I knew how things were going to go once they come out of the dark. Yet, I still feel like Hawke was being a big douche. Yeah, he should be mad but back then he was all about him and celebrating. So yeah, I can see

I am a sucker for second chance romance and Sawyer Bennett really captured this with Hawke and Vale's story. Once again I was swept away in ice skates, testosterone and the Cold Fury team.

This is the fifth book in the Cold Fury Hockey and it is a standalone. Hawke is a new member of the Cold Fury hockey team and this is his story. This is a second chance romance story between Hawke and Vale who were wild and in love in their teenage years. On the day Hawke leaves to play professional hockey, Vale, unexpectedly and without explanation, breaks his heart.

I love hockey romance and Sawyer Bennett does a nice job with this series. In this book we get Hawke, star defenseman for the NHL’s Cold Fury, in North Carolina. This is a second chance romance trope, as Hawke and Vale were in love at the start of his career. They were both big into partying hard. They loved hard, partied hard, and had a lot of sex. And then one night Vale leaves a party upset, Hawke stays to keep drinking, and the next day, a big miscommunication happens. Hawke leaves to play h ...more

Each book in Cold Fury Hockey is a standalone so don't worry, you don't have to read them in any particular order... at least I didn't.
Sawyer Bennett's writing is amazing!
Here we follow a story of Hawke, hockey player and his long lost high school love Vale.
What's not to like here? Second chance romance and great characters.
If you like sports romance, give this a go.

In this fifth installment of the Cold Fury series, we meet Hawke Therrien (great hockey sounding name) who was traded to the team in the off season. He is thrilled to join a team that not only is a solid contender, having won all the marbles (aka Stanley Cup) in the previous book, but he's excited to be part of their family. That is until his former girlfriend, "the one that got away", is introduced as the new team trainer.
