The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.
Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.
Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.
Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.
Nobody writes SEXY and SWEET hockey sports romances quite like Sawyer Bennett! The Cold Fury Hockey Series has quickly become one of my FAVORITE sports romance series out there today. LUCAS is the eighth installment in the series and it can be read as a complete standalone. In this sizzling read we are introduced to Lucas Fournier and Stephanie Frazier and OH BOY does it get HOT right off the bat! I’m not giving anything away in this review, but if you read the blurb carefully enough, you get an idea of what you’re in for with these two characters.
This kind of romance has to be tough to write because depending on how the characters handles this particular situation could set the mood for the entire read. I was hesitant at first, but Bennett handled it with grace and the characters reacted accordingly. That’s not to say that my stomach didn’t completely plummet a few times, but getting that kind of reaction from readers is what it’s all about. The author could have added some unnecessary angst, the kind we usually see with this storyline, but she didn’t and I will be forever grateful. I’m not sure how much more I could have handled. It was the right amount of drama, the right amount of angst for this particular setting.
With Lucas and Stephanie, the chemistry was there. The heat was there. The excitement was there. But they were thrown for one hell of a loop and they tried to make the best of it while going through the ups and downs that are definitely normal in this situation. I know I’m being vague, and it is probably necessary, and the next review you read will lay it all on the table, but that’s not my job. My job is to tell you how GREAT this author’s work is and how freaking sexy, sweet, and entertaining LUCAS was. In my mind, every single thing that Sawyer Bennett writes is a must read. I just think that this right here, is her absolute specialty and she doesn’t disappoint AT ALL!
Oh! And she sets us up for the next book in the series as well! Van is up next and I can’t freaking wait how his life will be turned upside down by a certain someone’s baby sister! BRING IT ON is all I have left to say!
