Marek by Sawyer Bennett


Marek Fabritis is used to delivering blows, not receiving them. But when he gets tipped off by an anonymous email about his ex-girlfriend, the news leaves him ice cold—and it’s not because Gracen Moore is getting married to a total jerk. It’s the fact that Marek has a three-year-old daughter he never knew about. Now he’s going back home, not to play knight in shining armor but to make damn sure that no man takes what’s his. For the first time, there might be something more important than hockey.

Gracen Moore has always loved Marek. That’s why she let him go, so he could pursue a career in the NHL. And that’s why she never told him about Lilly. Only now does Gracen realize that she made an unforgivable mistake. But is that any reason for Marek to crash her wedding and make an epic scene? If the spark that still smolders between them is to be trusted, maybe. Still, Gracen’s not getting her hopes up. Because she knows better than anyone that appearances aren’t always what they seem. . . .


I received a copy via NetGalley and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

Having been hooked on this series since I read Hawke, all I can think with every book is there is no way she can come up with a story better than the last and every time she proves me wrong. And with each new, tantalizing story, I have never been happier to be put in my place and bow the superiority of Sawyer Bennett’s penned talent. Since meeting Marek in Reed’s story, which was the tenth book in the Cold Fury Hockey series, I have been impatiently waiting to see how the “stopped wedding to the wrong man fiasco and discovered love child” would play out. Little did I know, that my heart would become attached to this fiery couple with the twisted and tangled past and their amazing beautiful, and funny offspring so easily but, they made me theirs from page one. Never have I seen a couple who guards their heart, uses their words as swords, or loves each other as much as these two.

Marek Fabritis is a man who is conflicted with wants and desires for a woman he loves because she is the mother of his child and has always owned his heart and yet he also openly despises because he lost three years with his daughter because of her deception. I can’t say I wouldn’t have a bit of asshole surfacing in me, if I was stuck in Marek’s shoes but geez can this hero hold a grudge! Even while getting his rocks off with his first and only love. Sawyer had me swinging wildly between emotions for this book boyfriend. I often didn’t know if I would rather wring his neck or have arms wide open ready to cuddle and comfort this hockey god. But by the end of his story, he had carved out his place in my heart and will never be replaced.

I felt nothing but sympathy and admiration for Gracen Moore from the moment I met her. If there was ever a heroine stuck between a rock and a hard place, it is most definitely Gracie. She is a woman who protects her family at all cost and always tries to look out for the best interest of those that she loves which has done nothing but put her in sticky situations since the moment she found out she was pregnant with Marek’s child. Sawyer has you live every moment of hurt, disappointment, and ecstasy that this character feels right down to her bones. It is impossible not to feel strong emotions for her or to fall in love with Marek through her eyes. I adore heroines with a back bone of steel, with a heart as big as Texas, who are fierce for those that she loves and Gracie has all of that and more!

Sawyer Bennett delivers another hockey hero that keeps our hearts hammering and us cheering on the sidelines for him to score and win in the game of love. I highly recommend Marek for a couple whose passion and tempers run hot that have you addicted and loving every minute of it. Sawyer always keeps us shoulders deep in emotions and has us falling to our knees in love with each couple that she creates whether they meet in a sex club, courtroom, or on the ice. I have loved each of her series and never tire of her angst, sinful scenes, or beautifully flawed characters.

About the Author:

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.
