Garrett #2 Cold Fury Sawyer Bennett
Sometimes you just need an easy ronseal romance. You want a book that just does what you expect (like ronseal!).
Well, I got that and a whole load more with this one. Sports star finds girl and gets his HEA books are a dime a dozen, but this was actually pretty brilliant. In fact, I loved it.
Garrett was great, unlike every other manwhore I’ve ever met he wasn’t hiding behind some great tragic childhood. In fact, he was a pretty stable and happy chap and a fantastic ice hockey player too. Nope, he just liked sex and he didn’t have a reason to say no. His and Olivia’s romance was totally believable, it was simple – he changed because he wanted to change. There was no endless angst waiting to be sorted. And thank god for that.
Olivia was very likeable, as I’m trying to avoid spoiling the secret in the book’s blurb its hard to say more. But her story is more than your usual romantic heroine.
Sawyer Bennett writes a cracking story, and creates romance that was simply more. I can’t stop thinking about it – especially the ending. And that sadly let it down. Why oh why did we need that ridiculous epilogue?
We got a real ending that suited both of them and the story and it shone with integrity. It warmed my heart and made me smile. Sadly, the epilogue just ruined it. What on earth is a writer the calibre of Sawyer Bennett writing such silly fluff for?
So my advice is download it (the first book Alex is pretty okay too!) but don’t read the damn epilogue and you’ll enjoy it a whole load more.
