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.
Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.
The emotional pull I get from these amazing characters is unbelievable. The perfect mix of heavy and light with a whole lot of sexy all the way through, GARRETT took me on a journey that I won’t soon forget. With this being my very first read from Sawyer Bennett, I’m kicking myself for not finding this author sooner.
GARRETT was introduced in Book 1 of the series, but this can be read as a standalone for sure. I haven’t read ALEX yet, but you can bet your ass that after I finished GARRETT, I immediately went and purchased ALEX. I need to tread very carefully with this review, because I do not want to give anything away. Just know, that this will be a story that will stick with you. It will pull at your heartstrings, it will delve into your mind, and it will leave you with a sense of wholeness.
Garrett lives for the game. Hockey is his life. It comes before anyone and everything. Women is a close second on that list, and he goes through quite a bit of them. With hockey filling up his entire life, he leaves no room for relationships, or that thing they call love. Olivia is the exact opposite. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, and she sure as hell DOES NOT want to be just another notch in Garrett’s bedpost. She wants something more, something real. Everything changes with Olivia gets some life-changing news about her health. Now she wants to live life to its fullest, and if that means spending one night with Garrett Samuelson, then so be it! Notches be damned!
Sparks fly, chemistry ignites, and emotions run high in this sexy, emotional installment of the Cold Fury Hockey series. When one date turns into more, and one passionate night turns into something deeper, Olivia can’t help but feel guilt for leading Garrett on, when she can’t offer a beautiful future with him. It’s too much, too fast, and it has her running from something she craves with all of her heart. She’s known loss, and she wouldn’t wish it on anyone. She knows what’s best, too bad Garrett doesn’t scare easily.
I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK. SO. HARD. The main characters, the secondary characters, the amount of emotions that ran through me while reading this book was just unreal. I laughed, I swooned, and I cried like a baby. GARRETT is sweet, adorable, hilarious, and sexy as hell. This incredibly moving romance will leave you with a feeling of hope. It filled my heart and left me basking in the aftermath of Garrett and Olivia’s Happily Ever After.
