Bennett Morse devotes his time to chasing two things: an NHL career and women. He's the easygoing member of his three-man line on the Fenway Flyers, content to play the game he loves and soak up the female attention it brings – as long as it's from a different woman each time. He learned the hard way that choosing only one leads to heartache.
Newly single attorney Charlotte Holloway finds just what she needs in Bennett – a sweet, sexy man to ease the burn of her recent breakup. One night is all she wants from the left winger who seems to have all the right moves. Soon circumstance draws her back to Bennett, and the sparks between them become a fiery blaze. But with the stakes high, will they risk it all and put their hearts on the line?

When Bennett Morse and Charlotte Holloway meet by chance and decide to spend the night together, neither one is prepared for the outcome of their actions, or that their encounter would lead to anything more. But, when Fate, kismet, the Universe, call it what you will, steps in, the two find out quickly that sometimes things, and people, are not what they seem, and that life as they know it is about to be very different. I have been a fan of Brenda for a very long time, and am never disappointed by the stories and characters that she creates. BENNETT, the second book in Brenda's On the Line series, is no exception. In Bennett, Brenda has written a man that is not the usual player. Yes, he's had his share of action, but his heart is in the game, and in getting called up to the professional team. When he meets Charlotte, who has recently broken up with her boyfriend, he is smitten. Everything about her appeals to him, and he is more than ready to see where things go. But Charlotte, raised by a mother who depended on men for her self-worth, isn't about to jump right into another relationship. Strong and capable, she's more than able to take care of herself, and isn't afraid to let Bennett know. What really makes this book so special is the way that Brenda continually takes her characters out of their comfort zones and allows them to rise to heights that they didn't know they could attain. Bennett is so much more than just a hot hockey player, and is willing to overcome his personal demons to show Charlotte just how much she means to him, and what he's willing to give up to be with her. And, Charlotte, afraid in her own way to let Bennett in, finds in him a safe place, where she can let someone else help her carry the load. BENNETT is a wonderful addition to the On the Line series, and the story, the heart, the wonderful way that the main characters mesh, along with the supporting characters and their stories, combine to earn this read an easy 4.5 stars. And, having gotten to know Liam just a little bit in this book, I can't wait for his story in the near future.
4 ½ of 5 Stars Brenda Rothert scores with Bennett the second book in the On the Line Series. Twenty-six-year-old Fenway Flyers left winger Bennett Morse has a one-night-stand with attorney Charlotte Holloway. However, one night will not be enough. Bennett is full of unexpected twists. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Fenway, Indiana. It is suitable for new adult and adult audiences. Brenda Rothert does a great job with her character development. I like Bennett. He is sweet, loyal, caring, and smart. He has some fears from a previous relationship that affect him. I appreciated that Bennett is from Orland Park, Illinois. I am from Chicago. We have family in Orland Park and are often there for the holidays, so it was cool that Bennett spent Christmas in Orland. He has a cool family. Charlotte is a strong heroine. She doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s relationship footsteps. She doesn’t realize that she is nothing like her mother in that respect. She and Bennett have great chemistry. The plot is well done. The conflict with Bennett’s roommate, Liam, was interesting. This story has multiple examples of what can happen with communication breakdowns. I love the scene with the peanut clusters. Bennett is a good man looking out for Charlotte. This is the first book that I have read by Brenda Rothert. I enjoyed her writing style. I will definitely read more books by her in the future and have already picked up some of her previous work. Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.
