Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.

Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.

"Life is frail for all of us. We don't know what tomorrow holds, or the day after, or the day after that. And besides... whether we go on a second date or third date, we're going to end up fucking eventually. And I'm very much wanting that right now. No, wait... that's not right. I need it right now."
Sawyer Bennett didn't disappoint, ever. I loved Garret since the first time I met him in ALEX. And I'm so glad I had the opportunity to read this one ahead. I like his humor and his friendship with both Alex & Sutton. What I was a little hesitant about him is his man-whore ways. This guy couldn't say no to women. He would bang them on the first date, and have his separate ways. He wasn't into a relationship, until he met Olivia.

Olivia has a whole lot on her plate, in fact, her plate seemed to filled the whole table by itself. She had just been given a news that would change her life. She will have to undergo serious medical treatment. At first, she decided she didn't have the time to have a relationship. She hated to see him go, but when a friend convinced her to live her life to the fullest - she finally closed her eyes and took the risk. It was the ultimate ride of her life - being with Garrett and seeing a different side of him. The sweet, and the ummmm... relationship type. He was to swoon for. 
"I look at this gorgeous man, who purportedly doesn't do relationships, telling me that he wants one now. With me. Sick me."
Sawyer Bennett has done her research pretty well, and by the appraisal and explanation of Olivia's doctor, it was like you will know how it feels like when the procedure is being done and what to expect. Writing medical stuffs can be tough, especially when someone from the medical field reads it, and as a nurse - I have heard doctors telling patients about their condition and stuffs to do with them, and Olivia did get an awesome and cool doctor who knows what he's doing.

He knows what is to be expected when he jumped into the Olivia Wagon, he too did his research and somehow knew what to expect. Now, he has a lot to live for besides hockey. This girl, this strong woman who had completely got him off the market and made him consider permanency, and commitment.

Yet, she didn't know what the future holds for them, and no matter how much the people around her told her that Garrett would be there forever, a tragedy had her question their future and made her did something I thought he was only capable of doing (sorry for the stereotype!!). Totally got myself brokenhearted at this point... Would she finally realize that he would love her no matter what? Or would she be afraid to take the risk knowing the uncertainty of her future?

"What If I die?"
"But what if you fucking live?"

Good thing an unexpected friend came in to the rescue and gave her a sound advice (totally surprised!). Nevertheless, it got her out of her stupidity and was ready to make the big gesture. But when she realized her mistake and apologized, he was already ready to let her go... (Arrghhh, talk about frustration.) Of course, this friend once again came into the rescue. I so like this friend - and he's pretty amazing for what he did to the couple. He was the person who was responsible of getting their heads out of their asses.

This novel is filled with hope, possibilities and so much love. A familiar feeling while reading a Nicholas Sparks novel sinks in (yep, that little dread), but then - this is a Sawyer Bennett novel and she completely owned it from start to the very last page. There's that sense of pending dread that has been killing me since the first moment I realized her condition, the panting and squirming (because Sawyer Bennett knows how to heat things up), and of course, the romance - that love that encompasses every single thing: differences, illness and even death. I loved every single scene, page - even those that broke my heart, because I knew she'd give me the HEA at the end of the novel.
