I love hockey books, and Sawyer Bennetts Cold Fury series has really hit the spot for me. These books are steamy, sweet, and entertaining. I get excited whenever I see a new one is coming out. I was especially excited to read Lucass book after meeting him in Maxs.

Lucas is not on the same path as his brother. Marriage and kids are not in his near future. Hes perfectly content playing hockey and playing the field. When he meets Stephanie Frazier, a stunning woman who is on the same

I crave this man, and thats not going to change. I dont want it to change, and in fact, the safest course for me would be to keep to our agreement and maintain this in a casual manner. I want him very much, yet I dont want to want him in a way thats necessary to me. Ive never given that part of myself to anyone before.

Now that may seem like the craziest title ever...But if you give me a moment, I can explain. You see, Lucus is the younger brother of Max...and both of these men come from a family that is friggin' amazing. These men may have had some hiccups along the way on finding "Their Person" but when they do... They end up going all in....And their all in just works for me...

The Cold Fury Hockey series quickly became a favorite of mine and book after book just added to my love for it. Lucas was no different and I fell in love with these characters very early into the book. Lucas and Stephanie were perfect for one another and that was evident all the way through the book. Neither of them were looking for something serious, just wanting a little fun. But when they got together their chemistry was so strong it couldn't be ignored no matter

Lucas Fournier is one of the newest additions to the Cold Fury and Max's brother. He comes from a loving family and that's what he wants for himself one day but he isn't quite there yet. Right now Luc enjoys the life of being single and a hockey player who can go home with a different woman every night. When he meets Stephanie he is happy that they are on the same page but after their passionate night both of their lives are being turned around and they have to
"I want everything from you."

Lucas is the eighth book in the Cold Fury Hockey Series. Lucas Fournier is the newest member of the Cold Fury Hockey team and he plays hard on the ice and OFF the ice with the ladies. After a heated one night stand with a spunky museum curator, Lucas faces the standoff of his life. Stephanie Frazier is a fighter. She is serious about her career and about playing it safe when it comes to the game of life. Lucas and Stephanie are complete opposites and yet, together

3.5 stars.

After my last Sawyer Bennett read (not from this series), I declared we were having a break but then she goes and brings us Lucas and seeing as I adored his big brother, Max, not reading his story would be cutting my nose off to spite my face. So, with some trepidation, in I went and here I am eating my words because I enjoyed it.

Im into hookups and one-night stands because thats all I have to give someone.

The reason was largely down to Luc and his personality, and whilst a player,
Sometimes the books that make me feel the most, that keep me enthralled and wont let me go, are the ones I have the hardest time writing a review for. I think its because they are so amazing it seems wrong to try to put the way they make me feel into mere words. Im finding this to be the case with Sawyer Bennetts latest Cold Fury novel. I know what youre thinkingthis is a sports romance! I cant help it, it is what it is.

The Cold Fury Hockey Series by Sawyer Bennett is hands down one of my favorite hockey sports romance series that I have read. In this eighth installment, Bennett turns up the heat and sweetness as she introduces readers to Lucas Fournier and Stephanie Frazier.

Lucas was a sexy blend of playfulness, sweetness, and pure entertainment. I loved that Sawyer didnt add any unwanted angst or drama and kept the focus primarily on Lucas and Stephanie

I liked this book a lot. So far, I have enjoyed every book in this series so I went into this book with pretty high expectations and I am happy to say that they were met. Each book in this series has featured a member of the Cold Fury Hockey team but that is really where the similarities end. I am kind of amazed by how different each of these stories really are and I think that is why I still get excited when I learn about a new book

I started this series a long time ago and I loved the first couple of books. Somehow along the way, I lost track of it and now it seems I skipped a couple of books. No worries though.. I will be rectifying my mistake ;)

Dude. I REALLY wanted to love this one. LUCAS by Sawyer Bennett just didn't blow me away. After all my status updates and love for our MC, and towards the climax of the story, I really, REALLY got turned off by Lucas' behaviour and attitude.

Let's just call a spade a spade. As lovely as Lucas was when he was happy and getting laid, his immaturity when he didn't get exactly what he wanted when he wanted it turned him into a D-Bag. I was so hot and cold for his character I don't know if he redeems

Lucas is a standalone and is part of the Cold Fury series.

I must warn you! Be very careful when you read the reviews you dont want any spoilers. I wont spoil anything in the book, but I just want to say again, BE VERY careful in reading reviews. If you plan on reading this book anyhow, just do it. Read it blindly because its the best way. Or just read the blurb and if it seems like its a book for you, then go for it.

So here we continue the story of Cold Fury series. With Lucas, I found the story is OK read. It seems Miss Bennet repeating old formula of typical sport romance. What is refreshing on this story is the heroine. She is the typical of no string attach sex kind of gal. Usually this character is more in the heor character.

The plot/ twist of the story is standard. Nothing major twist. There is that insta lust/ insta love. Not so much of character development. In some part I found the chemistry
Did you know it's statistically impossible for a professional hockey player not to get laid if he feels like it? Why would I ever give that up?

I've said it before (see review for MAX, see again review for ROMAN) but this time I mean it. I'm done with the Cold Fury Hockey series. What I remember as being a really great, fun, sexy, enjoyable, sports romance series has really taken a sharp downward turn that immediately coincided with terrible cover-style changes. Coincidence? I think not.

Talk about melting the ice rink!! Lucas was sexy, mischievous, sweet and infuriating that he believe it or not, he's so far become my favorite Cold Fury player!

He doesn't believe in relationships yet he knows when he was to own up and do the right thing, because he was brought up that way.

Now Stephanie, I liked her a lot until her past started dictating what her future needed or should be. As she and Lucas tried to come to terms with the outcome of their "hookup" I felt she was the one that

Another great Cold Fury book. Lucas was all kinds of yummy, just like his brother Max. Now Stephanie I wanted to smack upside the head every other page. Lots of previous Cold Fury peeps.

Now Van, Lucas' roommate, is up next. He's so grumpy and dirty I really want him to be a person who would visit Ms. Bennett's Wicked Horse.

Lucas was the eighth book in the Cold Fury Hockey series by Sawyer Bennett.

Lucas Fournier was a star NHL player on the reigning Stanley Cup team, the Carolina Cold Fury. He was gorgeous, a playboy and the younger brother to Max (book six).

Stephanie Frazier met Lucas at a charity event for the Museum. Stephanie was the queen of one night stands with zero entanglements. She had a very cold and unemotional childhood which taught her to be fully independent, relying on no one - not family or
A wonderfully sweet, sexy and heartfelt hockey romance that was captivating and fun to read.

One of Lucas Fourniers dream just came true, that is to play pro-hockey alongside his older brother Max. The only thing that could top that would be to win the cup. A goal that very much within the Cold Furys grasp as long as they make a concentrated effort to do so. That means Lucas needs to keep his focus on hockey and not the sexy museum curator whos presented a much unexpected surprise.

3.5 Stars!

❝Best. Hookup. Ever.❞

Lucas Fornier is the brother of Max. He came from a loving, supportive family. Lucas enjoyed being the center of attention, his world was full of friends and women. However, due to a past relationship where his girlfriend saw only dollar signs when she looked at him, one night stands were better than relationships. He loves hockey and is always up for a great time.  He hadn't been with the Cold Fury hockey team for long when he was invited to a benefit at a

We're back with the hotties from the Carolina Hockey team!

This time we have new guy Luc. He's the brother of Max - from two books back. ☺
He's just been in town for a few weeks and already had to attend one of those lame charity thingies at a museum.
But that's where he meets Steph.
Both are SO not in the market for something serious. Steph believes she will never be in the market for that - due to her horrible life growing up. And Luc is defintely not yet ready for his HEA! He knows what he wants

Lucas is the 8th book in the Cold Fury Hockey series and I feel like I could never get enough of these guys! What I loved about a series being long is how you get small glimpses of past characters. Of course, it's not as detailed as before but Sawyer Bennett never forgets to mention Alex or Garrett which I find great because I'm attached to these guys from the start and seeing they are in a good place is always a huge plus.

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Im going to let youll in on a secret, Im a huge believer in fate and in Lucas by Sawyer Bennett the hero and heroine get a big, heaping dose of it following an explosive one night stand. Two people from very different upbringings, but both committed to NOT being committed, find their lives turned upside down when their night of passion leaves them expecting the unexpected. Complicated and contentious but also sweet and sexy, Lucas was a bit of a disappointment in what has been a stellar series.

4 stars

I enjoyed Lucas by Sawyer Bennett.
It was sweet, hot, emotional, heartbreaking and at times frustrating.
The plot is well written, the characters were likable, endearing and I grew to loved them both.
Lucas and Stephanie come from two very different emotional worlds, one has grown up with love, family support, encouragement and the knowledge of whatever might happen in life he will always have his loved ones support and love.
The other grew up feeling like she was never enough, that she was

I love the fact that I never know what I'm going to get from Sawyer Bennett. She switches things up with every story she produces. Book 6 is Lucas' brother Max and Jules story. It was very low angst and romantic. Then Lucas and Stephanie's story is the complete opposite. It's not exactly romantic and it was high angst, yet I love both books equally.

Lucas and Stephanie are together because of a result of a one night stand. Neither want to settle down but are adults and can work together, as well

Liked it, but didn't love it. The book had everything it needed for a good read, but just fell somewhat flat for me. The premise and plot was flimsy at best. I didn't care much for Stephanie, the closed off personality bit went on far too long. There was also too much sex drowning out what little storyline there really was. If there had not been bits about the previous couples and about the team, I might not have finished it.

I really liked Lucas, though; every bit as much as big brother Max.

So Sawyer Bennett has redeemed herself with this book. I was disappointed with Roman's story and was very doubtful that this one would be any better. Boy, was I wrong. The opening chapter is off the charts hot and it progressively got intense and interesting. Lucas Fournier has moved to the Cold Fury team and is close to getting the Stanley Cup. He attends a charity gala function with his brother and fellow teammates, and meets Stephanie Fraizer, the museum curator. Now Stephanie started off as ...more

Sigh nothing better than a hockey romance. I have read a few of the other books in this series but not them all but it was very easy to pick up and not be lost. I love that you can read these as standalones. I would recommend reading them all and I have some catching up to do myself on this series.

Stephanie is a hard case. I wasnt sure if I liked her in the beginning and I find myself
