Meet the Arizona Vengeance, hockey’s hottest new team. They’re burning up the ice—until a one-night-stand with the coach’s daughter freezes one player in his skates.

Bishop Scott, co-captain. Not too shabby, huh? It’s all part of my fresh start with the NHL’s latest expansion team, and that means new teammates, a new coach, a new city, and a big new contract. Basically, I c

I know they say love and romance hit you when you’re least expecting it, but I can tell you it knocked into me with the force of a hurricane, because I truly, honest to God, deep down in my heart, wasn’t looking for this with him.

I love a good sports romance with a rugged and sexy Hockey player, and Sawyer Bennett’s ”Cold Fury” series is on the list of my favorites. She knows she’s got a good thing going so I have to give her kudos for creat

What does Bishop Scott do when he's been traded to another team...and not even an established one, nope an expansion team. One that is made up of high-cost players, bad attitude talents, and him. He knows, he gets out of this apartment, gets a feel for the new town, and maybe if he's lucky... get a little somethin', somethin' to release all of his stress...

Well, Lucky, lucky Bishop... because he hit the jackpot. Smokin' hot woman who has the same

Bishop wasn't your typical fake-relationship romance with a ton of drama and lies. Instead I found this book to be a pretty light read without the distraction of too much angst. Bishop and Brooke were a great couple and I really liked how they didn't fight the strong connection they had together. The chemistry was off the charts hot and made this book very intriguing.

The heat level was a lot higher than I though it would be but I am definitely not complaining about

Hockey romance, First book in Sawyer Bennett's new series- Arizona Vengeance.
Sweet, lighthearted, fun and easy reading.
Bishop and Brooke were a good match with a ton of sexual chemistry, entertaining story but I felt the need to deduct a quarter of a star for the books rather abrupt ending.
Enjoyable read.
I don't really even need to look at the blurb anymore for this author's books.
I always like them and I always finish them.

I'm so excited that we have a new hockey series to look forward to from Sawyer Bennett. I adored Bishop. Maybe not at first, but the more time he spent with Brooke the more I loved how he treated her. For having a fake relationship, he was a great boyfriend to her.

So many times you see sports players equals tons of other women drama. While we do have that, I didn't mind it at all. In fact, I'm glad it was there because Bishops reactions to it was exactly what I want to see happen when faced wit

“Tell me what you want.” “I want you,” she says simply. “All of you. All the time.”

We know exactly what we’re in for when we pick up a Sawyer Bennett hockey romance. An abundance of heat, alpha blokes, romance and an exhilarating sports experience as she takes us behind the scenes, into the dressing room, and on the ice with these hockey hunks as they put their bodies and their hearts on the line.

If you loved the Carolina Fury Series, you’ll enjoy the new Arizona Vengeance spin-off

This one was a winner! It didn't take much to get me excited about this book. Once I saw Sawyer Bennett's name on the cover and saw that it was about a hockey player, I knew that I had to read it. The fact that it is the first book in a new series is even better. I have really enjoyed the Cold Fury Hockey series but I was looking forward to meeting a new group of characters. I ended up having such a good time with Bishop!

Bishop, a hot hockey player for a new expansion team, meets Brooke for a one night stand. Next day they meet again and are suddenly engaged thanks to Brooke's father walking in on a torrid kiss. Fake engagement, awesome teammates, crazy friend (or should I say psycho) and lots & lots of hot sex.

I forgot something...why not 5 stars? The ending. It just kinda stopped, but it needed an epilogue, in my humble opinion.

OMG! This book is boring. Dragging and boring. I yawn many times and even falls asleep on some part of the audio book. The story is about fiancee of convenience. I was expecting the spotlight of the story will be on that convenience. But its not.

Its only focusing on a lot of sex between Bishop and Brooke. And the sex is luke warm. It drags on and on almost 80% of the book. The curve ball comes around 85% of this book with a stupid weak plot from the secondary character. It is so lame that I mus

Bishop and Brooke accidentally fall in love…

A one-night stand is the catalyst but love is the key as Bishop and Brooke are brought together in the most unexpected way. Thy have one hot evening but don’t expect anything more than that. When they run into each other at work – surprise, surprise! – their extra-friendly greeting triggers a reluctant, though harmless, deception…

2 1/2 stars. I feel like there is an off-putting pattern in the last few Bennett books that I have read. The heroes are all crude pigs. I think they're supposed to be Alpha but instead, they come across to me as crass a$$holes. Take Bishop for instance. He goes along with Brooke's lie to her father, which basically is supposed to be to protect him, and then pretty much TELLS her they will be having sex while maintaining said lie. His internal dialogue made me feel like he wasn't even going to gi ...more

Bishop is the first book in the new hockey series Arizona Vengeance by Sawyer Bennett and I really enjoyed it.

The storyline is well written, well paced and I ended up reading it in one sitting.
Bishop and Brooke may have started out as a one night stand but after they agree to their little arrangement it quickly starts to develop into something both where not looking for but why not enjoy and explore this attraction while they could ;)

I received this book through NetGalley. I had no idea what it was about but loved her previous works. This book did not disappoint a bit. From the first page it instantly had me hooked. It was such an easy read that I read it within a few hours. It entails a bit of comedy, drama, hockey games, and romance. I love it when Bishop will be in charge in the bedroom.

Sawyer Bennett writes it all: contemporary romance, sports romance, suspense romance, etc. No matter what she writes, you know what is always the same?  How freaking HOT it is always is.  I can always count her to deliver a fun read and that steamy, especially when it comes to her hockey players.

Bishop Scott is the perfect athletic hero. Stamina for days. Killer body. Heart of Gold. Treats his lady right.  Sounds like perfection, right? He kind of is. Wh

HONESTY FIRST: Well, if you've been following me for any amount of time, you know I am definitely no lover of fake fiancé/fiancée/marriage/relationship books. I honestly hate them. They are all dumb to me and I literally roll my eyes every time I come across one. They never live up to the hype or the reason that they are faking it.

What a great start to the new Arizona Vengeance series! Bishop was an easy and entertaining sports romance that I devoured. The fake fiance trope is always fun, and Bishop and Brooke's story is no exception. What starts out as a one night stand, snowballs into a fake relationship, until the lines between make believe and reality blur.

Bishop evolves a great deal through the book. He starts as the typical manwhore professional athlete (ugh), but what emerges as he spends more time with Brooke is s

Not the best move you could make when you’re starting out on a new team as a co-captain. But there is something about Brooke Perron that draws Bishop in and d

Bishop is the first book in the new Arizona Vengeance series. It is a hot hockey romance with some hot hockey hunks... BUT so much more than that!!

A meet-cute, a one night stand, and a rash decision lead to a fake engagement. Bishop and Brooke’s relationship starts out as a sham, but despite a rocky foundation built on lies, it very soon becomes something much more.

“...she’s the only woman I’ve ever been with that makes me excited to see what tomorrow will bring.”

How thrilled I was when I learned that Sawyer Bennett was writing another hockey series. I'm a huge fan of her Cold Fury series and was sad when it was over. What a fun new twist Bishop has taken, the #FakeFiancé route. Even though I knew it was coming after reading the synopsis, the anticipation of waiting for

Bishop Scott was traded to the new expansion team from New York along with his best friend and room mate, Dax. He is charismatic, handsome, and funny, but he is also a bit alpha and a dirty-talker. What he has not been is relationship material and is usually a one-and-done kind of guy.
