The Arizona Vengeance is killing it on the ice. But one player can't seem to keep his eye on the puck—all thanks to the woman he just married to save her life.

"Find your next hockey hero in Sawyer Bennett's Arizona Vengeance series."—New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis

My name is Dax Monahan and hockey is my passion. And if you want to succeed in this sport you have to bust your ass 24/7. I've never had a hard time focusing on my career, but when my past comes knocking, no amount of training can prepare me for what lies on the other side of the door.

Regan Miles was always like a sister to me. When a shared tragedy brings us face to face after several years, I'm shocked to see just how much she's changed. Gone is the shy, awkward little girl that always used to chase me and her brother around. Instead, I'm faced with a gorgeous woman who makes it damn hard to concentrate on anything but her.

Turns out, she's in trouble, and the only way out is to get married.

I surprise myself when I tell her to marry me. Order her, actually. And most shocking of all, she doesn't even hesitate before saying yes.

So it's settled. We're getting hitched and she's moving to Arizona with me. All platonic, of course.

The catch?
I never knew I'd fall so hard for my best friend's little sister.

This is the fourth book in Sawyer Bennett’s Arizona Vengeance series and I do believe it’s my new favorite! Every book in this series can be read alone, but is artfully intertwined so characters from previous books interact seamlessly alongside new ones. This marriage of convenience/best friend’s sister story is lead by Dax & Regan and they’re a delightfully sweet & sexy pairing. Dax’s sister Willow was just introduced & I’m already dying to read her story as well as the long awaited Tacker’s. Don’t miss this series!

Another Arizona Vengeance player to fall in love with, this team has plenty of sexy alphas on the outside and soft caring souls on the inside and let’s be honest what more could you want in a man ..... We first met Dax in earlier books but that doesn’t mean you need to have read previous stories to love this one but I’m guessing if this is your first Sawyer Bennett hockey book it won’t be your last. Dax Monahan was always going to be the man that becomes involved with the sister of his recently deceased friend Lance but what he didn’t expect was to find out that Regan Miles is very sick and struggling to find the money for the treatments she desperately needs so he suggests the one thing that will get her on his medical insurance and that’s lets get married..... What follows is a couple who have always had an attraction for each other finding themselves starting to fall in love with each other, the chemistry is sizzling hot and the banter between Dax and Regan flows so naturally. This is one of the best reads in this series and don’t get me wrong I love them all but this story captivated me and I fell big time for this couple and once you add the perfect mix of love, emotion, passion, banter and humour you get a book that gives you all the feels. This series is going from strength to strength and I can’t wait for book 5.

I absolutely devoured this book. It was the first I've read in the Arizona Vengeance series, and now I'm desperate to go back and read the rest. I need all the hot hockey players. I live in Las Vegas where we just got our Vegas Golden Knights 2 seasons ago, and I love how the Vengeance is a new team in the league, just like VGK. I've been obsessed with hockey the past two years, so yes please, give me all the hockey books Sawyer Bennett.

From previous books in this fabulous series, it was fairly obvious that Dax Monahan might well become involved with the sister of his recently deceased friend, Lance. He is surprised to learn that Regan Miles is sick and struggling to keep up with the cost of the treatments. When Dax sees Regan he is shocked how much she has grown up, after all to him she has always been the little sister. Dax is even more shocked when to help her out, he suggests they get married. I loved the dynamic between Dax and Regan he is an alpha and knows what he wants and goes after it. I was absolutely hooked on this book from the first to the last chapter and couldn’t put it down. The chemistry between these two is off the charts and I loved the banter and humour as well. The emotions that were pulled out as I read this book had me in tears at times. Dax is a knight in shinning amour when he sweeps in to help Regan. Living together, even though it is platonic, emotions and feelings soon become involved. As Dax and Regan move from friends to lovers the journey they are on will open them up to a myriad of possibilities. I cannot wait for Tacker’s story as this series has gone from strength to strength.

Dax is another book in the Arizona Vengeance Series. Dax, a hockey player, steps up to help his deceased best friend’s sister. After her brother’s death, Regan is left without medical insurance for her chronic disease. In comes Dax, offering to marry her. He is sensitive with a heart of gold. I love the camaraderie of the hockey team, how they are always looking out for each other. Very heartwarming story. Review copy was received for a honest opinion.

If Sawyer Bennett write it, I read it and Love It... Such a gifted story teller... This entire series is terrific and I enjoy each one as it comes out... Somehow Ms. Bennett manages to come up with original story lines and builds her characters so they are friends you would like to meet... Read it...... you will love it...

Great read I loved this book/listen and this story hit home. Regan Miles and Dax Monahan have been friends for Regans life and then when life comes in the middle of everything Dax decides to “take care “ of Regan. This was a great couple and I could not stop reading/listening until I finished the book. This was the first book in this series that I read/listened to so know I have to go back and read other books from this series.

Dax Monahan is an all around good guy. We've seen this with his interactions in the previous stories. But now he's taking good guy status to the extreme. We know he's an amazing hockey player and the Vengeance is in a position to do the unheard of for an expansion team. Yet he's talking a chance to lose focus to help his best friends like sister out. Losing Lance leaves Regan more than heart broken, she's is desperate need of help. When Dax finally gets her to open up here isn't prepared for the news she's dropped in his lap. Always one to act, he may be a little high handed, but he gets the results he wants marriage to his best friends little sister. We all know how well marriages of convenience end up... So much more than they bargain for.

Sawyer Bennett combines two of my favorite things; hockey and romance into a great story that I absolutely devoured in one sitting. Dax and Regan have known each other for years, she was his best friend's little sister and their families were close as close can be. So, Dax doesn't hesitate to step up when Regan needs help. He suggests they marry (strictly a paper wedding) so there’s no interruption in her very necessary expensive treatment for her rare life-threatening illness. Can two loving lifelong friends with benefits turn a marriage of convenience into a romantic happily ever after marriage?

Dax.... you knew he would fall hard once he found the right person. The only thing he did not know was the right person had been a part of his life forever. Regan, his best friends sister who he has lost contact with until he suddenly was killed is now back in his life, dealing with a life threatening medical condition and he quickly sees she needs him. Little does he know that she will fill a hole he never knew he had in his life. Falling in love with a friend, is sometimes the best thing, but there are always complications......

Dax Monahan is a hockey player for the Arizona Vengeance. Hockey is his life and he loves it. When his long time best friend dies, he gets reacquainted with his friends little sister, Regan Miles. Regan has not only just lost her brother, but she’s dealing with something monumental and doesn’t know what she’s going to do without her brothers help. When Dax finds out, he insists that they get married. What starts out as a marriage of convenience soon turns into so much more. I really enjoyed getting to see who Dax really was and thought Regan was an awesome female character. Now, I’m ready to get Tackers story! Ha ha. I’m pretty sure I’ve said that at the end of each Vengeance book.

This is Book 4 in the Arizona Vengeance Series and I enjoyed every moment of it. Dax and Reagan had known each other since kids. It happens that Reagan was Dax's best friend little sister. Then Reagan's brother dies and Dax tries to help Reagana as he promised his best friend. But what it was supposed to be only a nice friendship becomes something more and feelings get involved... THis is a sweet romance but with some heartwrenching moments...as always other characters appear that makes the story even more attractive... Highly enjoyable! Great read!!!!!

Regan Miles has suffered great loss in her short life. At 14, she lost both parents in a tragic car accident, then her brother was recently killed in a random mugging. She was also diagnosed with PNH, a life threatening disease that affects the red blood cells in your body. The treatment Regan requires is extremely costly, even with insurance. Her brother, Lance, went into debt paying for her treatments and education. After his death, she no longer had insurance. She was desperate... Dax Monahan lived and breathed hockey and the lifestyle it afforded him. His hockey team, The Arizona Vengeance, is on track to win the Stanley Cup. Even though all his friends have found their “true love”, it’s not for him. He enjoys being single too much. When he received word his best friend, Lance, had been killed he rushed to Regan’s side. The Regan he thought of like a sister, was no more. This Regan was GORGEOUS and in trouble. After several attempts to get her to open up, he finds out she has a life threatening disease. So he does what any Alpha man does. He demands she leave California, marry him and move to Arizona. Sawyer Bennett blends real world occurrences with romance effortlessly. This story brought me to tears, made me laugh, had me cheering for Dax and Regan, learning about PNH...all while wondering, aching for Tacker. I LOVE that Regan was able to break through Tacker’s emotional wall and get him to smile. I enjoyed Regan and Willow’s party crashing as well. I liked the simplicity of all that Regan encompassed. She’s real and relatable. Dax’s reaction to her crisis was so gut wrenching, frantic. I wanted him to ask Dominick for a ride on his plane. That way, he’d owe him and maybe have to help him win over Willow! I also loved that Sawyer was able to bring the hot topic of medical treatment and insurance into play without being too political. I can’t wait to dive into Tacker’s story! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

What can I say? Dax!! I have been a fan of this latest hockey series, the Arizona Vengeance by Sawyer Bennett from the very beginning. And in Dax, the 4th book in the series, Ms. Bennett has DEFINITELY kept the awesomeness of the series going. I WANT A DAX!!! I fell for him from the very first word. After the horrific murder of his best friend, Dax is worried about his little sister, Regan. He has cared about her for most of his life and has thought of her as his own little sister…. Well, maybe not “sister”, you see he has had a bit of a secret crush on her for years. When Dax finds out that Regan is in dire straights due to health issues and lack of insurance, he immediately basically forces Regan into marrying him. In name only. Right? There is only one problem to Dax’s solution, Regan also has had a secret crush on Dax and cannot figure out how to not have him see her as a little sister. So, Regan reluctantly agrees to Dax’s plan. OMG!!! The sexual tension!! You can cut it with a knife!! I really enjoyed seeing some of the other players and their significant others. And Tracker, I CANNOT WAIT TO READ HIS STORY. I loved every word of Regan and Dax’s story. I only have one complaint. In my opinion, it ended too soon. I got so sucked into the story I just wanted MORE!! But you know what, that is the proof of a good book. I was gifted with a copy of this book for my reading enjoyment, and I could not wait to tell you about this fabulous book. Thank you for reading my review. What are you waiting for? Go hit that purchase button and start reading this fabulous book. You will not be sorry.

Another great read in the Arizona Vengeance series! This one is getting serious again with a friends (like family) to lovers story that deals with loss and sickness. A marriage of convenience turns real and they aren't sure what to make of things. Really enjoyed the characters of Dax and Regan. I thought that they came across well and had some super hot moments too. Also enjoyed the look ahead to Tacker's story and the wee glimpse we had of him - I have a feeling that his is going to be great! The stories do kind of go in sequence but it can be read as a standalone as you get a brief rundown of previous events or even have them overlap a bit.

Lance Mile’s little sister Regan is NOT little by any means anymore .. taking care of Lance’s estate and herself isn’t easy being by your self. So when Dax Monaghan shows up to check in on Regan he know.. feels .. something is wrong. Not just her attitude, her demeanor and her looks just don’t sit well with Dax and he doesn’t let her off the hook. When he finds out that Regan has PNH he knows deep down in his heart what he HAS to do .. for his best friend Lance .. Can the biggest player on the team .. player of woman .. on the Arizona Vengeance buckle down and out his idea in play ?? Will true feelings come through that have ALWAYS been there .. just hidden because Regan is his best friends sister or will her sexy new body she grew into out his mind and heart in jeopardy ?? The energy, the heart and soul poured into these words will make you smile and cry at the same time !! Dax will capture you heart Way to bring all these players together !! Seeing everyone and what they are going through and still be able to play the game is loving !! Tacker I think is going to break everyone’s heart !!

Once again Sawyer Bennett found a way to hit all the emotions with this story. I laughed, cried, swooned, and cheered all while I learned something new. Dax stole my heart right from the start with his kindness and caring nature not to mention his incredible sexiness. Reagan was a great match for him and you know from the beginning that their crazy marriage of convenience plan is never going to work. Put this one on the must read list, I highly recommend it.

I am in love with this series! Sawyer always does such a great job with her storylines. But I’m really impressed with the health issues the heroine has to deal with. Bennett’s writing was flawless! I really can’t wait to see where she takes this series next!

This book was very personal for me. I do not have PNH, but I do have a chronic, life threatening disease, so I get how Regan feels. I get that she wants to have a normal life, or as normal as her disease allows. I get that people hover over her and drive her crazy. And I get when she feels like cr@p but doesn't want to worry anyone. I get the fear Dax feels. My husband has the same fear. I get the need to check on Regan constantly and worrying about her when he's not around. My husband calls and texts me constantly when either one of us is traveling. I love seeing Regan accept what God gave her and make the best of it. That is the philosophy I have. I can't change it, so I'm going to accept it and live my life to the fullest. But I also respect that there are days that aren't so good and you need to just take day to wallow. Whether it's about your disease, or something you want to do but can't, or you just don't feel good. We all have those days. I love seeing the strength she has and I hope to see more of her. Now, on to the love story. Although not conventional, it is nevertheless real. It started out as a marriage of convenience, but somewhere along the way it changed. Regan and Dax work well together. His family completely accepts her as is and supports her no matter what. And I love her interactions with Willow. I hope we will have more Willow in the future.

4.5 Stars Sawyer Bennett always delivers a well rounded story to her readers. Dax was a great friends to lovers story with a little bit of drama but filled with lots of love and compassion. I loved how the author tied in this story with previous stories and sorta gave a us a what's to come. While I loved the story and how it played out I was missing something to push the story into a 5 star read. I just wanted a little more wow factor to the story. But overall, I enjoyed the story. I thought it was well written and had a great flow. Being a hockey romance was a plus as I love a good sports romance. This is a story not to miss!
