The Arizona Vengeance are developing a reputation on the ice as one of hockey’s top teams. But one player’s reputation off the ice might just keep him from scoring. . . .
I’m having the time of my life with my new brothers on the Arizona Vengeance. We may be an expansion team, but after notching some big wins, the entire league knows to watch out for Erik Dahlbeck. That’s me.
The only person who doesn’t seem to think I’m so great? Blue Gardner, the hot-as-f*** flight attendant on our team plane. I sure wouldn’t mind joining the mile-high club with her, but besides bringing me lukewarm coffee, she won’t give me the time of day. Whatever I did to rub Blue the wrong way, my teammates think it’s hilarious. After all, we’re used to women flocking to us. #puckbunnies
When I run into Blue back on land, I’m shocked to learn how she spends her time off: taking care of her handicapped brother. There are layers to this girl I never imagined, layers I can’t wait to peel away. And that’s a new feeling for me.
But first I’ve got to find a way to melt that ice-cold stare. Because as much as I try to pretend I don’t care what Blue thinks of me, how can you not care when you’re falling for someone?
Erik is stunned when Blue, a flight attended on the teams private plane, will not give him the time of day and he can not figure out what he has done to make her dislike him so much. He is not used to getting turned down by women. Once back in Arizona after a road trip, Erik runs into Blue at a festival where she is spending time with her brother, who is handicap, and having the time of her life. Erik realizes there are many layers to Blue that he would love to figure out but only if he could get her to give him the time of day so that he could figure them out.
Blue is tired and worn out between her two jobs and taking care of her handicap brother Billy. When Erik tried hitting on her she shuts him down right away and is very bitter with him after what happened in LA years ago. Only Erik has no memory of them ever being together. After Blue explains to Erik why she is so mad at him, Erik does everything he can to get her to forgive him and give him a chance.
Sawyer Bennett has done it again with another amazing hockey romance. Erik and Blue are great together and I loved their chemistry. The way Erik befriends Billy easily really tugged at my heartstrings.
Erik is the second book in the Arizona Vengeance series which can be read as a standalone or as part of the Arizona Vengeance series and is written from Erik and Blue’s points of view. I recommend this novel and give Erik 5 maple leafs.
