Roman by Sawyer Bennett (Cold Fury # 7)
This is one yummy read, inside and out.
It’s offical the Cold Fury series is my favourite sports romance ever. Number seven? I was expecting a bit of a hump. No way!
Sawyer Bennett is the undisputed Queen of sports romance.
Roman Sykora is a bad boy, he’s not really a patch on Alex (#1). But unlike Alex he is a happy bad boy and uninterested in what others think. As long as he delivers on the ice, he’s not worried what the gossip pages say. He’s been alone for a long time, he’s self-sufficient and happy in his own skin.
And then he falls in love. Words fail me, it’s just so wonderful.
Here’s this guy who hasn’t ever belonged, never did the family thing but isn’t full of angst, falling for a girl who desperately craves what she has never had. A family. But not with him, but a father and sibling she doesn’t know. It’s simple and complicated.
There’s a scene towards the end where he serenades Lexi, and I longed to be her. Oh, it makes me smile even now. It’s the most romantic thing ever!
We also got a few extra story strands. Gray Brannon (Mrs Ryker) appears and wow is she a judgemental pain in the rear, and with a very short memory when dealing with Roman. Her dad Brian has his own little romance going on. Loved that!
