New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett hits the ice with the story of a playboy athlete whose winning ways lead him to a beautiful woman with a lot to lose.
Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.
Cancer is a horrible disease. I have lost two very special people in my life to it and I hate that they lost their battle, and that is exactly what it was, a battle. So I knew going into Garrett that this was going to be one that brings up some pain from my past. There is no way to romanticize cancer, and that isn’t what happens here at all. Garrett at least for me is a book of hope, strength and the building of a love that will be tested by hardships.
We knew from the previous book that Garrett is a manwhore, different women, no relationship or commitments, love em and them em type of guy. But as we all have seen before, all it takes is one women to knock them off their ass and their entire world is turned upside down. Garrett had no idea that Olivia was sick, but when he finds out, he seriously made me love him because he wasn’t with her because she was sick, no he was with her because she was it for him. Olivia, I liked but didn’t love and let me explain why. She in a way was selfish, she wanted Garrett in her life but didn’t take the time to stop and think that while this may be hard on him he never once showed a second of regret. She tried to make a decision for him and I wanted to scream because she just couldn’t see past her own fears.
This isn’t a happy romance even though there is happiness in the book. It is one that is moving, one that will open your eyes and make you want to hold your love ones a little tighter to your heart because you never know what is going to happen, whether you live until you are 100 years old, or maybe something tragic happens you just need to keep them close. I want to read Zach’s story which comes out next right now because I have a feeling that it will be another heart wrenching story. Fans of Sawyer Bennett need to read the Cold Fury Hockey series and have your tissues ready once you finish Alex because Garrett is going to pull at all your emotions.
