Oh, Sawyer Bennett...Leave it to you to take this series make it grow and warm my heart. You have switched up how to keep a series fresh and interesting. With all of the books/characters interconnected yet not totally necessary to have been read before, your work is a wonder.

In Legend, we have met this fella and know he has a home he loves which is next door to a neighbor who drives him batty.
He was raised by a military father instilling order, discipline, and systems. As a professional hockey player, all of these traits have served him well. He has a specific routine before each game and gives his all. When he comes back from the road or hard-fought games, he is in no mood for cray-cray lawn gnomes on his lawn or hearing the cute pixie singing at the top of her lungs, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

It doesn't help this woman causes little sparks every time he sees her either. She is spunky and always has a smile on her face. This woman even has become pals with his other hockey teammates. They seem to be comfortable with her and now he has this nagging feeling of being left out.

Pepper cracks up when Legend gets hot under his collar when she is in her garden singing. She thinks he is hot as hell and needs to lighten up. She knows he works hard and wants to see him smile once in a while.

Legend comes back from a long day away from his home. It is dark and he sees Pepper is having friends over at her home. He is about to walk into the garage but stops as there is something near his front door he doesn't recognize. After one look, the only person he thinks to help him is Pepper.

From that moment everything changes. Legend has to reevaluate the concept of his life, career, and his assumptions of who and what Pepper is. Nothing will be the same and the shock for Legend is he doesn't want them to be.

Without going too deep and giving everything way, Legend is one fella who has depth, love, and understanding of what it means to be a MAN. I loved him. TOTALLY. I also loved Pepper as well. She knew what she needed and made sure continue to be who she was before Legend and then with him.

There is drama and it all works. As I said, Sawyer Bennet has the talent to keep me interested in this Hockey Team and the women who love them.
