Review by Wendy ♥ Reed (Cold Fury Hockey, #10) by Sawyer Bennett

 A Review by Wendy

As a huge fan of the Cold Fury Series by Sawyer Bennett, I have noticed the books have a way of some having more intense story lines than others. It mixes the pace up and allows each of the players be their distinct person. I felt this entry was one where we had a solid character realize he was missing something with all of the casual Puck Bunnies he "enjoyed". This story had us seeing his world turned upside down with his meeting his new neighbor.

Reed is coming off another win of the Stanley Club. The team is on break and Reed's only plans seem to be "enjoying" his Blond, Busty Friends and chilling. Yet somehow he is not really feeling all of this "dating" he is doing...Oh he has made sure the interchangeable women were taken care of... But his lifestyle has lost its luster.

Josie is an ER Dr. and needs her sleep. Being woken by the banging headboard of her neighbor is not going to continue. She goes to his door and knocks until he answers. Josie is the exact opposite of all the women Reed goes for... but watching this feisty pistol of a woman telling him to get his playmate to stop screeching so she can get some sleep makes him take a cold hard look at what he has been doing. He apologizes in a friendly way and sends his loud visitor home.

Over the course of a few days, Reed sees Josie around the pool and they happen to strike up a very comfortable conversation. Josie is direct with Reed and teases him about his array of interchangeable "Barbies"...

Josie feels comfortable joking and teasing Reed as she has no interest in him. She can just speak her mind freely without judgement...well, there is a little judgement and as she gets to know Reed better...she realizes she may have judged him too quickly.

For Reed has seen the real Josie and is sort of in awe... She is this incredibly hard working doctor, saving lives and making a difference in the world every day. The more Reed is around her, the more he wants to be around her and he makes sure this happens....

He brings her pizza after her shifts... He makes sure she is able to relax and settle down so she can get her sleep...and all of this hanging out starts to lead to something else... and the both of them start spending a lot of time together... crossing some lines and feelings.

These two have a confused idea about what is happening... He thinks he may not be enough for her...and she needs to understand she is what he wants without doubting herself. A conflicts happens... and then the realization of what each means to each other...

Reed was a man in transition from being the usual guy... enjoying those who presented themselves to him...This sports star lifestyle lends itself to this type of behavior and can get very old once the star sees the shallowness of it all. Reed had all the underlying qualities of a stand up fella and he showed them with Josie. Josie had the intelligence to overcome a past heartbreak... in her own way and with Reed's care... she started to feel like she was her own person again.

This couple's chemistry was right on and the banter worked so well. Laughter and then Steam is always a great combination.

The Cold Fury Series always has something to offer and this was another entry which allowed the reader to see a Hockey Relationship from the inside out.

A gifted copy was provided by the author/publisher for an honest review.
