Just Released + Official Review! Van (Cold Fury Hockey #9) by Sawyer Bennett

Van by Sawyer Bennett


Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot.

As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that’s kept him from getting involved in relationships—or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can’t refuse . . . and Van meets a woman he can’t resist.

Simone Fournier is the stubborn one in her family—and that’s saying something, considering her brothers are two of the Cold Fury’s biggest stars. Simone gets what she wants, and what she wants is Van. Still, there’s a part of him Simone can’t reach, no matter how hard she tries. In private, he’s all fire and passion. In public, he freezes her out. Van may want to push her away, but Simone won’t let him go that easily. Because this time, she’s playing for keeps.

Advance praise for Van

“This book flowed beautifully, with equal amounts of highs and lows with tons of laugh-out-loud moments. I really appreciated the outsider’s view of Stephanie and Lucas’s romance. Seeing it from this angle just sharpened that story for me. This was just another solid book from an amazing author.”—Garden of Reden

I received a book via Net Galley and left a voluntary honest review.

Sawyer Bennett has made me fall harder and faster for each of the couples in the Cold Fury Hockey series. I could not wait to get down and dirty with Van and Simone that readers were able to meet in the previous book in the series Lucas. I just knew that the personalities of these two were going to be intriguing and explosive in every way! It wasn’t long and Sawyer Bennett had us skating on thin ice with these two with our hearts in our eyes and practically singed from the heat! Sawyer outdid herself with the sparks of desire and outlandish behavior in Van that make you want to curl up and never leave this fictional world.

Van Turner left me so curious after his surly, mysterious introduction in Lucas that I was beside myself with excitement when this hottie showed up on my kindle. Sawyer gives us an up close and personal view with the tall, dark, and gorgeous enforcer of the Carolina Cold Fury Hockey team and leaves us begging for more time with him both on and off the ice. I loved everything about him from his dirty talking broody ways to his heart that is encased so deep in ice that it takes a sassy woman like Simone to free it! Nothing makes my heart beat faster than a muscled misunderstood hero that is just begging for the right kind of love and trust me when I say Van checked all my boxes of fictional boyfriend…again and again!

Simone Fournier lives up to her impulsive, outrageous introduction in her big brother’s story Lucas. I absolutely love a heroine that knows what she wants and goes after it and Simone is tired of being the baby of the family and living up to other family members expectations. She is determined to find her own way in life and has no idea that the cantankerous, sexy man who opens the door to her brother’s house is going to rock the very foundation that her world is built on. She is full of spunk, has a zest for life, and is pure seduction that even Van can’t resist! She is a larger than life character that a reader can’t help but want to admire, laugh at, and emulate!

Sawyer Bennett delivers a searing, “hold on to your hearts and panties” romance that is sure to live on long after the last page is read. I highly recommend Van and ALL the other books in the Cold Fury Hockey series for a team of jersey wearing heroes that will forever take up place in your heart. Sawyer Bennett is an author who always entertains, titillates, and keeps us coming back for more!
