Meet the Arizona Vengeance, hockey’s hottest new team. They’re burning up the ice—until a one-night-stand with the coach’s daughter freezes one player in his skates.
Bishop Scott, co-captain. Not too shabby, huh? It’s all part of my fresh start with the NHL’s latest expansion team, and that means new teammates, a new coach, a new city, and a big new contract. Basically, I cannot f***ing wait to show my old squad what they’re missing.
But first, I decide to check out the town before the grind begins. Turns out Arizona chicks are totally smokin’, and I’m fortunate enough to meet one who’s looking for the same thing I am: a night of anonymous, unforgettable, no-strings-attached sex.
Fast forward to the Vengeance arena. It’s the last place I expect to see her again—let alone in her own office. Then bells go off and I finally realize who this girl is: Brooke Perron. My new coach’s daughter. All of a sudden, we’re picking up right where we left off, which means our hands are all over each other. That’s when her dad—my boss—walks in. And before I can get a word out, Brooke’s introducing me as her fiancé.
Sure, she just saved my ass. So why do I get the feeling Brooke’s going to turn my world upside down? Maybe it’s because this fake relationship feels way too real. . . .
Bishop is the first book in a new hockey series, Arizona Vengeance. The Arizona Vengeance is a new team created from the expansion draft and Bishop is the first player that we are going to get to know better. Bishop Scott was a member of the New York Vipers before being chosen by the Arizona Vengeance draft. Deciding to check out Phoenix prior to the season starting, Bishop heads out for a night on the town and some no-strings attached fun with the beautiful woman that he meets at the bar. Shocked to find his one night stand sitting in one of the offices at the Vengeance arena, Bishop and Brooke start to pick up where they left off when they are interrupted by Bishop’s new boss and Brooke’s father, the coach of the Vengeance. When Coach Perron confronts them about what is going on, Brooke blurts out that Bishop is her fiancé and so starts their fake relationship. While trying to keep Coach Perron happy, the fake relationship story straight and their lives in order, Bishop and Brooke realize that their relationship is becoming anything but fake.
Bishop is told in the dual point of view of both Bishop and Brooke and is a fast-paced fun and steamy read. Sawyer Bennett has upped her hockey romance game with the Arizona Vengeance series from the Cold Fury series. This series is sure to get better as the books come. There are many characters that are introduced in this novel and I am sure we will get a peak into their lives in this series. Overall I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to diving into the rest of the Arizona Vengeance novels.
I gave Bishop a 5 maple leaf rating.
