Wylde (Arizona Vengeance #7) by Sawyer Bennett


A Review by Wendy
4 If It Is Arizona Vengence, Can't Read Just One Stars

Spoiler Free
You know how there are certain series you just love. The books have become a touchstone of your reading history and as the series continues, you learn of past characters and feel that connection. Sawyer Bennett has been doing these series about her NHL teams for quite some time. Cold Fury was the first series I read that then segued wayed into this team series, the Arizona Vengence.

This allowed Bennett to go forward while still referencing the other team periodically. I happen to love all of that. It is addictive and like the old ad campaign for Lays Potato Chips, you can't read just one....and I haven't, I have read Every Single One, Happily.

(Yup, I know that remembering this personally ages me, hahahahaha)

This entry has Wylde who has become a part of the team and finds himself doing something he has never done before. He is pursuing a woman who really isn't interested in him...well, not like how women usually are.

You see Aaron has had quite the rep as the team player, enjoying the whole puck bunny deal.
The season is over, they won the Stanley Cup and so they all are riding high on the win. He is trying to figure out what to do with the off-time when he comes across a bookstore during his morning jog. As he peered into the picture window, he saw this woman there, someone who looked like a vision to him.

This caused him to go into the store and see her up close and personal. Up close was even better...she was nothing like all the plastic, blond barbies that have chased him. There was something earthy and sweet yet with so much spark behind the eyes. It made him feel like a preteen boy.

In order to stay in her store longer, he came up with needing gifts for the weddings happening for his teammates. As they are interacting, Aaron is thinking this redhead is someone he wants to know better.

Clarke is a bit dazzled by this hunk of a guy in her bookstore. He has that just finished run look, causing the t-shirt to stick to his chest revealing more abs then she is used to. This guy seems a little out of place yet still keeps coming up with reasons to keep being in the store.

Clarke is enjoying the banter and flirting. It is something she hasn't been involved in forever. It causes her to relax for a minute and allow Aaron to present a challenge. Confident her assumptions about this guy who probably is a weekend jock and has no interest in what is her passion, she accepts the bet.

Bammmm, Aaron has won and now Clarke, who never welches on a bet, has to spend time with this guy. Then when she finds out Aaron isn't some weekend jock at all and a famous hockey player, all her walls go up.

This is not good, not at all. Clarke is sure after her living up to her obligations she will cut him loose and won't see him again. Clarke's experience with fame and the famous was not something she ever wants to repeat again.

Aaron is having none of this, he is actually really enjoying himself with Clarke and wants more time with her. After she explains why they could never work, Aaron is determined to figure out how to show Clarke he is a good guy and things will work out.

This was delicious, I could have gobbled Aaron up. Such a sweet guy and he was very forthcoming all the time which I loved. He was patient with Clarke and understood what she needed. Clarke was perfect for Aaron and she needed to accept his true actions and feeling for her. When they finally were able to make it all fall into place, I rejoiced.

As I said, I love this series, and when the next entry comes...I will be front and center.
