Zack (Cold Fury Hockey #3) by Sawyer Bennett A tragedy leaves NHL star, Zack Grantham, broken and a single dad. He begins to struggle with his feelings toward his nerdy nanny, Kate Francis. Once again, Sawyer Bennett created an extraordinary and heartwarming novel.  Zack is a fantastic addition to the Cold Fury Hockey series. I love Zack.  At the start of the novel, he is recovering from his injury from the car accident at the end of book two.  He suffers from displaced guilt over the loss of his son’s mother, Gina.  He is empty and wants to feel again.  He is an admirable character that is inquisitive and hard-working. Kate is amazingly perceptive.  She comes from a poor family and has worked for everything she has.  She is frugal and smart.  She is an astounding heroine who is easy to like. I enjoyed Zack’s reaction to Kate.  When he first meets her, he doesn’t really like her or knows what to make of her.  She has the perfect personality to handle him.  She truly understands him. I appreciated the friendship that Zack developed with recently acquired goalie Ryker Evans.  I look forward to hearing his story in book Four, Ryker. Zack has a realistic and thought-provoking plot.  The writing is impeccable and well-thought-out.  Zack is a moving novel that I am grateful to have read.  This is a must-read for lovers of contemporary sports romances.

Another great read. Zack and Kate's story was sweet and a bit rocky. I thought Kate was a wonderful character because she was a "dork". Zack's character was real and he felt a lot of guilt, some of which was not in his control. I loved his son Ben too. Can't wait to read Ryker.

This was so sweet and heartfelt and a bit heartbreaking at times but so full of love and swoon worthy moments. I loved it, awesome read! I loved the relationship between Zack and Kate, it pulled at my heart strings. Zack is struggling with so many things and has so much guilt but I love that he's trying to move forward and do what's best for his son. I loved Kate, the tenacity and perseverance she had was awesome. She was wonderful and quirky but totally adorkable, so full of love and charm. She totally made me smile. Zack and Kate's relationship is so sweet and tender and also lustful and hot. I loved watching the subtle build and little moments they shared as their feelings grew. And Zack, I could not wait for him to get it together and figure out what he wanted but I understand why he was holding back. They have ups and downs, a lot of push and pull and a few mixed signals that kept me on the edge of my seat rooting for them. It's such a great story of them coming together, opening up, sharing feelings, and really moving forward. The writing was fantastic. I always tend to lose myself when I pick up one of Sawyer Bennett’s books. There was great development, I liked the characters history and build. Loved all the details. Throw in an adorable kid and I was a happy camper. This is such an endearing story about healing, love, forgiveness, and acceptance. Moving forward and moving on. Excellent read. I adored watching Zack and Kate fall hard. I couldn't put it down. I was hooked! Loved this!

Ok, so I really liked the first book in the series. The second one was kind of a downer. I was hoping for a recovery in the third one, but Kate needs more of a backbone and Zack is just a jerk (albeit in the name of grief, but it makes him far from likeable rather than smpathetic). Maybe the fourth installment will be better?

And I mean that in a good way. There are steamy scenes, but not just about that. Loved the connection which is built on friendship and love for an adorable kid. The mixed reviews make me doubt if I should go back and read Garret. Started with this one first by accident.

There are some moments when Zach is borderline verbally abusive and it's uncomfortable to watch the heroine give in to him without a second thought. Overall, the series is ok, this book has the least about hockey, which also disappointed me.

If you haven’t read any of the Cold Fury stories then this is a fantastic place to start – events that lead to Zack’s story do start in Garrett, but it isn’t like you can’t figure out what happened and the important parts are explained. Although I’m definitely not going to tell you to ignore Alex and Garrett, because they are fantastic and definitely worth your time. I do not have a clue how Kate manages to be so amazingly well put together – she’s smart, calm, understanding, and funny. And I love her to bits! She’s great not only with 4 year old boys but also with their daddies :) Ben has typical little boy energy and adorableness, and Kate is just as cute dealing with him as his nanny. Zack on the other hand has some serious issues stemming from Gina’s death. He’s dealing with a lot of guilt and it leads to some major hot & cold moments with Kate, especially once he starts to find himself interested in her and her exuberant, goofy personality. There are so many issues here, all of them laying at Zack’s door, but Bennett handles them absolutely beautifully, with care and a delicate touch because they are so very complicated. I feel for Zack so much, I’m there with him for every step forward and for every two steps he takes back. I root for Kate’s compassion and silly humor to help bring him to a better place and hurt with them when things go bad. Of course you know it is all going to end up alright, but that doesn’t make those bumps any easier to take. Unlike with Garrett I didn’t have any trouble getting into this one. And just like the other two I was quickly lost in Bennett’s characters and their troubles and now I can’t wait to get to Ryker’s story. (Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review)

If you have read Garrett, then you know the heartbreak that Zack goes through and that starts out this book. It is a tear jerker reading this book where he becomes a single dad and the guilt he faces with Gina's death. But then Kate enters the picture and you see the changes in him. He starts working through his guilt and thanks to Kate is able to see the flaws in his thinking. Kate is such a dorky, funny character and I just love her. This whole story while starting out sad, ends beautifully and leaves you wanting more of all the characters!

Definitely like Zach the best. Author has a hokey writing style but it was toned down a bit in this book. Not a great series but passable.

Okay read. He was a jerk through most of the story with glimpses of sweet and nice, then nice at the end. Bring on Ryker's story.

Totally predictable. All sex. Lacking the witty dialogue of previous books in series.

Loved the charactors and their interaction. Zack had some major issues but a winderful soul underneath it all.
