Book Review | Hawke by Sawyer Bennett (@bennettbooks)

Series Link: http://amzn.to/1P1wrny


The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team proves that love is a power play. As Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling series continues, the league’s most notorious party animal gets blindsided by the one that got away.

Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn’t he? He’s worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She’s almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later—except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.

Vale Campbell isn’t the same girl she was at twenty. As crazy as she was about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking were starting to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that would never happen with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do—until now. Because she’s still crazy about Hawke. And if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.

Second Chance Romance + Hot Hockey Player =

I said goodbye to sleep the moment I got a copy of this book from Netgalley (Thank you @readloveswept!) I think my heart went through the roof and you made a girl really, really happy.

Vale and Hawke shared a past – a young love so real, so intense, all so consuming and deep – Hawke didn’t know what went wrong that Vale had to break it off with him. He’d go to the ends of the world for her and jump if she’d ask him too – but it all went to drain. Soon, Hawke found himself single, concentrating and working hard on his game and became one of the best hockey player in the field.

His life was awesome – he had a booming career, he was at the top of his game. He’s enjoying the perks of fame – party, booze and women. Until he found himself face to face with his past. Vale was now working for the Cold Fury: fate must be playing with him!

That night was the turning point in Vale’s life, and even though it was breaking her heart – she knew she had to let him and the unhealthy lifestyle go. Years later, she got her life straightened out, and her father got her a job with the Cold Fury so they can be close to Duke. But things got a little complicated with Hawke around. She has a lot on her plate and on her head right now, and she doesn’t need complicated.

But they had an unfinished business in the past, and the chemistry was still burning between them no matter how they try to deny it. Will the past always stand between the two of them? Vale was ready to move on and just look ahead, but can Hawke forget the pain of his heartbreaking caused by Vale?

Hawke may not be the perfect guy – but he was an awesome boyfriend. But they have been young and impulsive. Things were fast between the two of them and they were heading to destructionville. It was heartbreaking, but at that moment, Vale thinks it was the right decision for the both of them. Nevertheless, I was just glad Vale moved on and went to school. She became someone she and her father could be proud of. She might not be the perfect girlfriend when she broke his heart: but she was an amazing daughter! She’d do everything for her father. Which makes her one of my favorite heroine for this series!

True love waits, until the hearts, the soul and the mind is ready. No matter where life takes you, or even if you have met someone else – when you are destined to be together, fate will move mountains to make it happen. We all make stupid decisions that can cause hurt, what matters most is that we were able to rectify it, and not do it again. Second Chance Romance has always been my favorite, I love seeing love rekindles, lovers learning from mistakes and moving forward.

So fall in love with another uber hot and sexy hockey player and his girl in another installment of the Cold Fury Series which you can read as a stand-alone. Just like any other Sawyer Bennett books, this was beautifully written, and you’d get hooked just as easily.
