“We are more than lovers. We are the best of friends, two peas in a pod, Frick and Frack.”
Hawke is the fifth book in the Cold Fury Hockey Series. A second chance romance full of passion and love, Sawyer Bennett offers another winning read to the Cold Fury Hockey Series.
“What’s done is done and all that.”
Hawke Therrien is the newest addition to the Cold Fury Hockey team. A powerful player on the ice and a player with the ladies off the ice, Hawke has the entire world at his fingertips. When he discovers the new trainer for the team is none other than Vale Campbell, aka “the one who got away”, his whole world turns upside down. Hawke and Vale shared a young romance that was both reckless and free. When Vale ended their relationship abruptly so many years ago, he never dreamed he would see her again. Vale wants nothing to do with Hawke and her only goal is to care for her father. As Vale and Hawke spend time together a rush of old emotions and feelings hit them hard like a tsunami. The powerful pull they both experience is more than they can deny. But can two people that have experienced so much loss find the strength to find love once again?
“I’ve got some major groveling to do if I’m going to get my girl back.”
Told in dual POV, Hawke is by far my favorite of the Cold Fury Hockey players to date. I am not a huge fan of second chance romances and yet, I simply could not put this one down. The way in which Hawke and Vale were ripped apart left me hurting for them both. I wanted them to reconcile and create a happy life together. As the plot unfolds, I found myself 100% invested in their relationship and the way in which they struggled to forgive each other and move on together. The passion between Hawke and Vale was smoking hot as the old feelings and emotions surface. As always, family bonds play a pivotal role in the plot as Vale cares for her father. Vale is probably my favorite Cold Fury Hockey heroine because of her spunky personality and her dedication to her father. The tempo of the story is fast-paced as the fate of their future hangs in the balance. Full of complex characters, a beautifully twisted plot, Hawke and Vale offer a second chance romance that I will never forget.
Overall, Hawke is an absolute must read for contemporary romance fans. Although it is preferable to read the entire series from the beginning, Hawke can certainly be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone. If you like hockey, romance, and smoking hot passion, this series is an absolute must read!
