I loved this book all the way through! Being a huge hockey fan, I was so glad to find books that tell about their lives within and outside of hockey.

*4.5 stars* I have been dying to start this series and am so glad I finally did. I was immediately hooked. Loved this! Watching Alex and Sutton come together was fantastic. Alex has some demons and even though I wanted to throttle him early on I loved watching him grow and change throughout the story. He made my belly do somersaults! He was just so sweet and tender and there was a lot of underlying emotion happening. I loved how supportive and positive Sutton was, they were just really good for each other. I thought they were both great characters and I loved all the tension and animosity between them. The build of their story and them coming together was awesome. I thought there was really great progression. There are ups and downs, a bit of drama, lots of hot sex, and a lot of emotion. It just all played out really well. I was feeling rather crushed toward the end but Sawyer Bennett brought it home with a fantastic ending and awesome epilogue. Loved the writing and descriptions and how the author really evoked a lot of feelings out of me. Alex and Sutton have great voices and I loved that this was dual POV. I thought this was an excellent introduction to the series and am thrilled there are so many more out for me to read. I loved getting to meet some of the other guys on the Cold Fury team and am excited where it will go. Garrett was super fun with no shame and I will definitely read his story soon. I'm a big ol' Sawyer Bennett fan and love a good sports romance so this definitely fit the bill. Hot and sexy and oh my is Alex dreamy!

Okay, so one of the first things you have to know about me is that I'm a big hockey fan. Like, a HUGE hockey fan. I love to watch the games, even if my team isn't playing (Go Blues!). Oddly, though, prior to reading Alex, I hadn't read many books featuring hockey players. The hockey books that I have read were part the Off series by...Sawyer Bennett. So awhile back, one of my good friends told me about Sawyer's book, Alex, and said that I really needed to read it. I kind of dawdled for awhile and set it aside. I'm not sure why, to be honest. Maybe I was afraid of being disappointed? I shouldn't have had doubts though, because I really enjoyed her Off series. Now, I could kick myself for not reading this sooner. Alex turned out to be a really nice book! I'll be honest- I kept waiting for more scenes when Alex and his team were on the ice, and I loved reading about how his games went. It was also cute reading about how Sutton learned about the game. I remember doing that too! :) My heart also went out to Alex when he told of his struggles with the game and how it wasn't fun anymore. Alex was such a complex character, and although he was gruff and often had a bad attitude, I was surprised that he wasn't worse than he was when you considered all of the things he had been going through. I often find myself disliking NA heroines more often than not, but I actually liked Sutton! I admired her disposition and the life that she made for herself, despite her obstacles. She was just what Alex needed. I did get a little irritated with her towards the end, because I didn't think she fully comprehended Alex's situation, and felt like she was a little rash. Other than that, I think I would've liked to read more about their relationship and their dialogue. I am really looking forward to the next book in this series- Garrett! He was one of my favorite characters and really put a smile on my face. I cannot wait to learn about his story in book two!

When I decided to read Alex, I thought that it would just be another sports related romance. I was very pleasantly proven wrong. Yes, it's about hockey and yes, there is romance, but it's also about the journey of our characters to find forgiveness and healing. Alex is our flawed hero. He has demons and a complicated history which has closed him off from the world and any meaningful friendships or relationships. He made some mistakes in the book, but he always remained painfully honest and in the end tried to make amends. His cocky attitude and antagonistic behavior was a turn off initially, but as you peel back the layers and look past the walls he's built up around himself, you really see the vulnerable and lovable Alex. I was invested in his redemption and was rooting for him and Sutton from the start. Speaking of Sutton, she was such a great character. I loved how honest she was, but also how she was both brave and insecure/fearful. As the story unfolds, you find that she has her own baggage to deal with, but she hasn't given it power over her life. She calls Alex out on his decisions and stays true to herself, even though it breaks her heart. I enjoyed reading about and getting a feel for who Sutton was through her work and her parents, and I especially liked her relationship with her little brother Glenn. They were so sweet to each other and always had the others back. Another thing I really enjoyed was being able to be in both characters heads. The dual POV really worked for me and it made the emotions all the more intense as the story played out. I wasn't a fan of the eventual push away (even though it was a given it was going to happen) and I did feel like it was out of character for Alex to make a 180 turn in personality so quickly. It did provide lots of swoons though ;) I thought the epilogue was completely perfect and I was grinning ear to ear as I finished the book. I can't wait to continue on with this series, since I loved getting to know Garrett (he provided a lot of comic relief!) and the next book is about him.

I got this book from Bookbub for free and then saw it recommended on Catherine Gayle's website as well. I laughed and cried, as the story of Alex and Sutton unfolded. Alex was an amazing character and he deserved and Sutton is just as amazing as he is. I wish I had love story like theirs. I very much enjoyed the last few chapters of the book and the way that Alex had come to terms with the past to find his way to the love he never thought he deserved. I am going to get the rest of this series and while not a hockey fan, between you and Catherine Gayle I just might become one!

A professional hockey player who hates hockey? I have to admit, the idea sounded more than a little far-fetched. But Ms. Bennett made me believe it could happen with Alex Crossman's story. Fortunately, she also gave him a way to pull himself out of the misery that his life had become--Sutton Price. I loved the connection the two had right from the start, when she didn't have a clue who he was (other than gorgeous, and late for their appointment) and knew nothing about hockey. She had to Google "hat trick". After Alex got one. I loved watching him start to like, and then love the game again, almost as much as I enjoyed watching their relationship grow. It did take an awful lot of work for Alex to finally get himself to the point where he realized that he actually did need to work on his relationships--with his teammates, with his family, and with Sutton. But when he finally committed himself? Watch. Out. And his grand gesture to get Sutton back after he nearly ruined it all? Priceless. I'm going to be re-watching Love, Actually again very, very soon. :) Rating: 4 stars / A-
