Lexi’s different. So damn different in all the right ways, and I just didn’t realize women like her existed.Roman Sykora
In a league full of troublemakers, Cold Fury defenseman Roman Sýkora stands out—at least when it comes to negative publicity. When he’s not chilling in the penalty box, the sizzling Czech skate demon is racking up tabloid headlines for his scandalous behavior with the ladies. But now Roman’s feeling the burn from management to clean up his act, or else. Luckily he’s got an enticing distraction: a fun-loving barista who plays the ukulele and brings out a side of Roman he didn’t know he had.
Lexi Robertson came to Raleigh, North Carolina, to finally meet her father, Brian Brannon, and her half sister, Gray, both of whom work in the Cold Fury’s front office. That’s where she first meets sexy, intimidating Roman—who’s really a big softie at heart. As one relationship takes off, another begins: Brian seems to be clicking with Lexi’s boss at the coffee shop. But when the friction between Roman and her new family heats up, Lexi wonders whether she’s a pawn in their game. Feeling hurt and foolish, Lexi’s ready to quit while she’s ahead. Trouble is, Roman’s not ready to quit on her.
Roman is seventh book in the Cold Fury Hockey series. This book can be read as either part of the series or as a standalone. Roman is a little different from the other Cold Fury books as it is in Roman, Lexi and Brian’s point of views.
Roman is a bad boy defence man who plays by his own rules and does not care what anyone thinks. That is until he’s called into the Cold Fury management office and told he needs to straighten out or find a new team. Thankfully Roman’s interest is peaked by a ukulele playing barista who might just be able to help him change his ways.
Lexi has recently moved to Raleigh, after loosing her mother, to meet her new family, the Brannon’s. Brain and Lexi hit it off right away and Brian is willing to do anything to make his long lost daughter welcome into the family but Gray is skeptical about what is really going on. As Brain gets to know Lexi, he also gets to know Georgia, Lexi’s boss at the coffee shop.
I really enjoyed Roman and the continuation of the Cold Fury series as this in one of my favourite series by Sawyer Bennett.
I recommend this book and give it 4 maple leafs
