I really enjoyed this book! It probably comes as no surprise to anyone that follows my reviews that I love this series. I jumped into the series with the second book and have looked forward to each new book. I have yet to be disappointed. I decided to listen to the audio this time around since I wasn't sure when I would have the chance to sit down and actually read the book. This audiobook ended up being such a wonderful experience for me. This book is all about Josie and Reed. Their meeting at the start of the book was not at all what I would have expected and I really wasn't sure how it would play out. Let me tell you that this book takes Josie and Reed from annoyed neighbors to friends to much more than friends with ease. I loved their journey and thought that they really seemed to work well with each other. They are playful with each other and really just enjoy each other's company. I thought that the chemistry between them was very well done. I loved the characters in this book. Josie is an emergency room doctor so she is used to making tough decisions. She really is a down to earth character that likes simpler things like beer and pizza more than anything else. Reed is just a nice guy. He is in his off season so he is a bit more relaxed and has plenty of free time. At the start of the book, he is dating a string of Barbies but is quickly distracted by his neighbor. I liked how Reed just seemed to know what to do with Josie and I loved how they trusted and respected each other. I believe that this was my first experience in listening to both Graham Halstead and Cris Dukehart. The book is told from both Reed and Josie's point of view in alternating chapters and I liked the fact that two narrators were used. I thought that they both did a fantastic job with the narration and really made each of the characters come to life. I think that they both did a great job handling all of the character voices and emotions of the story. I definitely plan to look for more of their work in the future. I highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This was the tenth book in the Cold Fury Hockey series but it could easily be read as a stand alone since it does tell its own story. We do get a bit of a peek into what is going on in Marek's life in this book and I must say that I am really eager to get my hands on his book in just a few short months.

Reed by Sawyer Bennett is part of the Cold Fury Hockey Series. Reed Olson is riding high. His team has won the Stanley Cup again and he is enjoying some time off, but the revolving door of women is getting tiresome. When his neighbor Josie Ives knocks on his door in the middle of the night to see if his current bed-mate, christened "Screaming Barbie" by Josie, could possibly be a little more quiet, Reed is intrigued by her wit and spirit. After more interactions with Josie, Reed realizes that he might be missing something with the hot on the outside, empty on the inside women he's been with and goes about inserting himself into Josie's life. I liked how Reed's character really cared about Josie, from the get go and then as he becomes her friend its in a very thoughtful, though at times direct way. He is sweet and romantic and really cares about taking care of her. Josie, as an ER doctor is from a very different world than Reed and he is a good compliment for her. By being outside of her work realm he gives her things she almost doesn't know she needs. Overall I have been very much enjoying the Cold Fury Series. Sawyer Bennett has made each one it's own unique thing, while still maintaining the overall web of characters and Reed was another great addition. Sweet, caring, fun and passionate, I very much recommend. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

I don't know how Sawyer Bennett does it but each and every Cold Fury book is better than the last, Reed is no exception! When Josie, an ER doctor, meets Reed he is a true player. That first meeting sparked a friendship that grew to more. This book packs in so much humor, some hot sexy times and the perfect amount of angst. If you've never had the joy of reading one of the Cold Fury series books, you can start with this one as they are all standalone.

My favorite men are back!!! I’m always waiting to return back to North Carolina to catch up with them, and Reed was definitely worth the wait! Reed is enjoying the offseason, usually with a different girl every few days. He has a certain type, blonde, tall, and busty. One night in the midst of enjoying the company of one of his ladies, a woman shows up at his door…not one of his usual ones, but his neighbor, Josie. She is not happy! It seems his party in the bedroom is keeping her awake. She has just come off a long shift as an ER doctor. As she is telling him to put a muzzle on his “Screaming Barbie,” he is most definitely intrigued by her. This is the beginning of a casual friendship between the two, eating pizzas and working on her jigsaw puzzles. As they spend more time together, that line of friendship is blurred when they find it hard to keep their hands off of one another. Will their friends with benefits arrangement turn into something more permanent? One of my favorite things about this book was the easy friendship between Reed and Josie. They are so comfortable with one another, and I just loved the banter between the two of them, especially when she names his blond women, Screaming Barbie, Carb Barbie, and Ditzy Barbie. He helps her get out of her planning mode, and gets her to be more spontaneous and have fun. She loves Reed for who he is as a man, not the celebrity hockey player. As they take more steps toward becoming a couple, they begin to question their own self-worth. Josie thinks Reed has a type, and she is not the type of girl he is usually attracted to. Yet, Reed has never really dated, but Josie doesn’t make that connection. As she questions her physical beauty, he doesn’t think he is good enough or smart enough for her. She is so independent and strong, he isn’t sure she really needs him for anything. With all their accomplishments, her an ER doctor and him a talented, successful hockey player, they have the same issues all of us do. Sawyer Bennett is a master at making her characters realistic with normal human flaws that her readers can identify with. There are some surprises in the book, and they made the book even better. Bennett has again done a phenomenal job of whetting our appetite for the next book which will be about Marek. I can’t wait to see the story he has in store for us. So, for now, I will tell my favorite hockey players and the women they love good-bye until I see them again! ***Read and Reviewed for Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews***

4 Stars! Hello again, hot hockey player! How I've missed you! Sawyer Bennett's newest book in the Cold Fury series is here and this time it is Reed's story! We first met Reed in Van's book when he asks out Simoine. He was sweet and funny, a real nice guy. However, that is not how Reed is initially portrayed in the prologue and opening chapters of the book. In fact, he is quite the manwhore who has a very obvious type. When his neighbor comes a knockin' in the middle of the night, things between Josie and Reed start off a bit awkard and a whole lot hilarious! Reed was a pleasure to read. Bennett's smart writing style leads the way to a good flow, great characters and a sweet story; although, I felt this one to be a little bit clinical and not quite as feels-inducing as previous books in the series. There is some OM drama, but it is light and resolves quickly. Not as much interaction with other characters as in some of the previous books, but it worked here allowing for the focus to be mostly on Reed and Josie. BUT, there is a MAJOR tease to the next book in the late chapters and I have to tell you it has me all kinds of salivating for the next book. Another great addition to one of my favorite series ever!

Sooo… REED. I liked his characters from appearances in previous books. But with that blurb I have to say… I was a bit – okay, a lot – wary. Would you want to get to know your boyfriend because you’re hearing him banging another Barbie almost through the wall every other night? Womanizer, playboy – I love ‘em all – still, this concept just screams wrong and so far I’d successfully avoided this trope…until Ms. Bennett came along – and passing up one of the Cold Fury men just is not possible. So, yes, despite myself, I had to smile at their meeting and every jab from Josie in-between. But it took me quite a few chapters to be able to go along with it and just enjoy their banter, their friendship, their chemistry. Reed Olson is so different from his teammate Van. More different is nearly impossible. Where Van is dark and broody and moody and closed-off, Reed is laid-back, smiley, flirty and just happy-go-lucky. And Josie… she has so much to offer. She is sweet and kind, and smart… it’s why Reed is drawn to her like he’s never been drawn to a woman before – but it’s also why he doubts their whole ordeal… The conflict in this story is – compared to other stories of this series – very low on angst and rather short-lived. These two are mature and sort out everything rather quickly. Really, the easy and natural way a solid friendship – even with such a strange short – forms into something much deeper was great to watch. REED is a sweet feel-good friends to lovers romance – with a mouthwatering insight into the next story. The rough context might be nothing new within this series, but it is sure as hell going to get pretty interesting with Marek’s story! I can’t wait!!
