I really enjoyed most of this book. It was hard to believe the quick turn around in Garrett however, and I wish there was a little more character development there. Also, the end was so abrupt until I turned the page to the Epilogue. It was so wham. bam. done. But I guess like the rest of the story it flowed a little too easily so why not finish up just as easy. I haven't read Alex and plan to. I did like the premise and it was well written, just wish there was *more*.

First off, I want to say that Sawyer Bennett is an incredibly talented author. I really enjoyed ALEX, the first book in the series, and I was really looking forward to reading GARRETT. Unfortunately, I found it difficult to get into. Garrett has a reputation for being a hardcore ladies’ man. When he meets Olivia and finds out about her illness, he becomes this faithful, upstanding and reliable person. I found it hard to believe that Garrett would change his stripes so fast for a woman he barely knows. I also didn’t care too much for Olivia. I can’t put my finger on what it was but nothing she said or did ever won me over.  I think fans of the series will enjoy GARRETT but his story just wasn’t for me. ***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

Sawyer Bennet can do no wrong in my eyes. She’s a fantastic author who I hope will never stop writing. (I can dream!) Garret just proved why I love her so much. This book was filled with such a reality and intensity and for a few hours I laughed, cried, lived with these characters.  Garrett is a player and I don’t mean hockey player. His reputation precedes him. He has a great personality that attracts the ladies and that broke down the distant Alex in the previous book of the series. However, he doesn't want that reputation any more. At a party, he meets Olivia, Sutton’s cousins and can’t stop thinking about her. However, Alex and Sutton won’t let him date him because they don’t want him to love her and leave her.  Garret. sigh. What can I say of Garrett? He’s male perfection. Completely and fully. Can I please have a Garret in my life…like yesterday?! He stole my heart. He was such a charismatic and truthful guy. He has to make some pretty important decisions in the beginning of the novel but handles them like the man he is.I can’t imagine being in his position and trying to handle the situation better than what he did.  Olivia is a force to reckon with. She’s a character full of life and is in a place in her life she never imagined she would be. Her personality is one of her best qualities. She thinks of others before she worries about herself. She’s embraces everything and everyone around her with such ferocity despite the negativity.  I adore this book and have read it a couple of times now. I’m a huge hockey fan so this book is perfect for me. However, you don’t need to know about hockey to enjoy it.  Every person should give this book a shot. It can be read as a standalone novel. It’s a story not told everyday, but a reality many face. Sawyer did an awesome job with this book and can’t wait to get my hands on the other one!

Depressing.  Didn't feel any connection between G/O.  Seemed to go right to committed relationship, then both very immature at the end.  I liked Alex, but not Garret.  Based on this book, I won't read the next.

Good read. Steamy romance scenes, relationship drama, and a happy ending. It took a while to get used to the writing style in the first person for the characters...different from the norm I'm used to.

This is the second book in the Cold Fury Hockey series with Garrett Samuelson, the man-whore of the team. One night stands are his thing and he rarely goes on a second date. When he see Olivia Case, he is drawn to her beauty and yes he wants her in his bed. When she tells him no, he can't believe it. No one has ever told him no, that he can remember. He convinces her to go out with him and she gives in, what could it hurt, it would only be one night. While Olivia is keeping a secret, Garrett finds himself in unfamiliar territory. He wants to spent time with her and not just in the bedroom. Can he do the relationship thing with Olivia? Will Olivia's secret tear them apart? Will Garrett run for the hills when he learns her secret? This is a great story and I loved it as much as the first. Sawyer Bennett has done her research to give us an accurate story-line. Who doesn't love a sexy, well-built hockey player? Can't wait to read the next one, Zack's situation in this book broke my heart and hopefully he will get his happily ever after in the next book. **Copy provided by the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**

I enjoyed this book so much I read it twice. What a heart warming story about real life challenges. The story talks about dealing with unexpected love, loyality, sickness, death and having the faith and courage to believe that in the end all good things are possible. Although this book can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading "Alex" first. Both books are great reads. I have already pre-ordered the next book in the series.

This book had me hooked. I loved the story and it was heartwarming to see the transformation of the characters. Oliva and Garrett's story was sexy but realistic. I highly reccomend!

I thought the story was emotional and well done. The author pulled me in from page one and I didn't stop reading until I'd finished the book.

I really enjoyed this book until the last 50 or so pages. I felt that the ending could have used some more development. Overall, good book.

Wow. This was super emotional. I mean, from the synopsis I knew it would be but I felt this one deep. It was so incredible well written. Wonderful story! This story broke me a little and I might have cried but it also filled me up and gave me hope. I found it to be a beautiful story of two people coming together in a very difficult time. Growing, opening up and trusting, and just falling in love. Garrett was awesome. Watching this man come onto his own totally had me swooning. I loved him so much. I was melting at all his sweet, kind gestures and watching him fall for Olivia. There was just so many special moments throughout with him that truly touched me. Olivia was so strong and determined, battling something serious. It seemed to be such an epically bad time to start a relationship but that's one of the things that made this so spectacular. I loved Garrett and Olivia togher, their playfulness and chemistry. Their ease with one another. Their openness and caring. I loved the development of their relationship as things unfolded. It was like the world melted away while I was reading. This is really deep and packed full of emotion. Awesome writing and descriptions. Fantastic details. There is an amazing build happening and I am so pulled in. I loved the male bonding that Garrett had going on with Alex and Olivia's relationship with Sutton. I loved Olivia's friend Stevie and was thankful for some of his comic relief because it was needed. It's a serious subject matter but I thought the author did a beautiful job sharing Olivia's story and the battling she was facing. Besides Olivia and all she's going though, there is Garrett falling hard and I loved his transformation. That man is swoon worthy and him being all in made me melt. Simply amazing. So emotional but so worth the wonderful journey. I can’t say enough good things!

Garrett's story is my favorite in this series. All of Cold Fury is sexy and relatable but I have never read anything with a new relationship starting out with such a struggle. And I enjoyed it. And it was still sexy. Good Job

Another story like the first in the series that made me laugh and made me cry. Ms Bennet writes about real life and Sawyer and Oliva's story was sweet and hard to put down. I like that she put the epilogue in for forty years in the future. I very much enjoyed reading this and am going to read Zack's story next. His looks to be heartbreaking but promising.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series. I wanted to like this one, but the plot felt rushed at the beginning and the drama at the end felt forced. Hoping next one is better.

I actually had a hard time getting into this one - I’d make it a few chapters and then put it down to try again. I did that a couple of times and then when I saw that Zack’s story was coming out, and I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted to read it, I knew I had to try again. Apparently the third time’s the charm because not only did I finish it but I actually enjoyed it quite a lot. I think there were a couple of issues for me my first few times – I could see where their problems were going to be a mile away plus, I wasn’t all that big a fan of Garrett. I thought after Alex that I’d love him but he comes across not so much like a modern day rake (which I love) and more of just a manwhore. Once I got to know him a little better though I actually liked him a lot. And even though I knew where things were going to go wrong I decided to try to just sit back and enjoy the ride. It’s a little bit of a secret (but not one that is hidden very long) - Olivia’s issue is that she has been fighting cancer and she’s about to fight it again. When she meets flirtatious and oh-so-sexy Garrett she decides to take the chance to enjoy some fun sex with the hottie hockey player. Only it turns into something a little more serious. So of course her health issues become the huge trouble spot for the two. Mixed in with how unappealing I found Garrett at the beginning and I just wasn’t sure I wanted to face that, but he quickly changed my mind and I loved the dedicated boyfriend he became. Bennett is a great story teller and her characters are complex with deep issues, so once I got started I quickly found myself drawn into their story. The ending was a little difficult to read because both of them needed a good smack but it just made their HEA all the better. (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

Another hit by Sawyer Bennett. Seeing Garrett grow from the ultimate playboy you get a glimpse of in Alex and in the beginning of this book, to the man who falls in love - it makes for a great story. Garrett has enough trouble with the fact he is only wanting one woman but add in that she has cancer, and he really doesn't know what to do. But the scene where he goes to her treatment, man, it will melt your heart. Love this book, every single thing about it!

Garrett Samuelson, the king of one-night stands, sees a woman that completely takes his breath away. Olivia Case, Sutton's cousin, is a beautiful woman with major health issues. Though she turned him down the first time, she quickly changes her mind. Life is short and maybe even shorter for her, so why pass up the opportunity for an amazing one-night stand. But will one night be enough for Garrett? This is the second book in the Cold Fury Hockey Novel series and I am blown away! Such fantastic writing by Sawyer Bennett. This author took me to places I wasn't ready for but I'm so glad I went. There is more depth to Garrett than I imagined. He was a good guy before but now I might be a little in love. He's thoughtful, caring, sweet and romantic but behind closed doors, watch out! He is sexy as hell, he likes it how he likes it and makes no apologies for it. Behind all the beautiful people and amazing sex, the story is so touching. I laughed...a lot! There were some happy tears and many TRAGIC, so, so sad tears that were cried during this book. But most of all, the epilogue BLEW ME AWAY! When you get to the end, just before you read the epilogue, take a minute, breathe and then start reading again. You really need to read this fantastic book from this amazing author!. Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review.
