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.
Lucas is the eighth book in the Cold Fury Hockey series and can be read in order or as a standalone novel.
Lucas does not like having to do personal appearances but it’s something you have to deal with as a member of the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team. When Lucas hits it off with Stephanie, the intern director of acquisition at the museum during a gala they decide to have one night of wild fun. Or so they thought. When Stephanie shows up at the bar after a game one night, Lucas is surprised to see her and even more surprised when she tells him she came to see him specifically. Stephanie drops a bomb on Lucas revealing that she is pregnant. Lucas decides he wants to be involved in everything to do with Stephanie and the baby but Stephanie is not sure she can fully open up to Lucas the way he needs.
I did enjoy this book as the Cold Fury series is my favourite series by Sawyer Bennett. Stephanie was a little much for me but overall I was happy with the way Lucas finally got her to open up.
I recommend this book and gave it 4 maple leafs.
