Coen, Pittsburgh Titans #4 by Sawyer Bennett

 A Review by Wendy

4.5 Coen Came Through Stars
* * * * 1/2 

Spoiler Free

I have read all of Sawyer Bennett's Hockey Sagas and have been looking forward to Coen's story. Ms. Bennett gave us glimpses of Coen from the start of this series. We saw how tortured he was, how closed off, and angry his actions were but we never were given any hint of the complex reason other than the survivor guilt of not being on the plane that crashed with his teammates.

Coen has been acting out and it has finally caught up with him.
He was suspended, possibly facing a court trial, and only with the support from Stone and Gage, did they guide him to go to Stone's cabin and get his head together. Coen believes he is done with hockey, but the team's owner will not hear it, making Coen promise to stay on the roster until the fall camp starts. He agrees and holes up at the cabin.

Slowly Coen becomes more relaxed, communing with all the nature, peace, and quiet. He is still overcome with his issues but at least he feels he can breathe. Being on his own with the quiet seems to settle him.

Then one day he is on his deck and starts to hear voices coming from the other side of his trees talking about plans. This is the same woman he saw the other day when he was running the trails and he was being the Asshat he had become to her, trying her to get off his land. It did not go well.
Now this woman is looking to cut down the trees that separate their property to allow a driveway to be built.

No, No, No...that is not going to happen if Coen has anything to say about it. Forget how cute this woman is, forget he is a bit taken with her and likes her feistiness...nope not gonna happen.

Tillie is not going to allow this asshat to boss her around and destroy her dream. Her parents would never want her to give up on her dream of opening an art studio and sharing her passion with others.

Tillie has dealt with all sorts of obstacles during her young life and this guy is no different. Instead, Tillie goes ahead fighting with everything she has to make this studio happen. She even goes to Coen's cabin to try to work things out and her going there starts a chain reaction neither of them expected.

Ms. Bennett has the knack for making us want to know the characters she creates. During the first three books, she teased us just enough to make us be concerned with this man. We could see there was something ugly brewing inside him, something he was nurturing, holding it close, allowing him to be rude and out of control. Bennett gave us insight into the type of childhood and family life he had, and how hockey was everything to him. We wanted him to see his way clear and turn everything around.

With having a woman who is strong, positive, and willing to fight back when Coen was out of line, we have the perfect partner for him. This woman allows him to get in touch with the man he was before the crash and PEOPLE, this man is YUM.

The relationship is one between equals and is worth reading about. Lucky for us, Ms. Bennett has more characters to reveal and share. Yay!
