Hockey star Alexander Crossman has a reputation as a cold-hearted player on and off the ice. Pushed into the sport by his alcoholic father, Alex isn't afraid to give fans the proverbial middle finger, relishing his role as the MVP they love to hate. Management, however, isn't so amused. Now Alex has a choice: fix his public image through community service or ride the bench. But Alex refuses to be molded into the Carolina Cold Fury poster boy... not even by a tempting redhead with killer curves.
As a social worker, Sutton Price is accustomed to difficult people like Alex, who's been assigned to help her create a drug-abuse awareness program for at-risk youth as part of the Fury's effort to clean up his image. What she doesn't expect is the arrogant smirk from his perfect lips stirring her most heated fantasies. But Sutton isn't one to cross professional boundaries-and besides, Alex doesn't do relationships... or does he?
The more she sees behind Alex's bad-boy façade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers.

Yes, definitely. Not only was the story well-written, but the narrators did a phenomenal job bringing the book to life.
I liked how the main characters both experienced the same situations growing up, but dealt with their pasts in different ways. It was very touching to see them come together and give each other the love and support they needed in one another.
I loved the two main characters. Alex and Sutton have very different personalities, but both have loving hearts.
This books was filled with many emotions. I laughed, I cried, and felt I was a part of the story. I could relate to the characters. This was my first sports romance, but it definitely won't be my last, especially from Sawyer Bennett. Sawyer has quickly become one of my favorite authors.
Avid Audible Audio book fan. I am voice talent and greatly respect and appreciate the importance of proper oration.
I loved this story as it revealed the struggles surrounding an addiction within a family, something I am not a stranger to! The male orator was very expressive and really portrayed his role well! The female orator was a bit monotone and devoid of full expression! The romance was awesome, the characters all fit together nicely! I will read it again!!!
I love losing myself in books of any kind
I got this book on a whim for a very cheap sales price.... Glad I did I!
Today's contemporary romance tries too hard to be a made for TV drama. With more and more over the top sex, drama, vulgarity and promiscuity. The book hinted to those things but did not necessarily display them which I enjoyed.
This author understands the difference between sexy eroticism and hardcore porn while keeping interested in the story of two characters budding romance.
The Heroine of this story was my favorite sweet and wholesome with a backbone. Not afraid of Love, Honesty, and Sexuality. This what I liked the most.
First book I have read by Sawyer Bennett and will not be my last... Highly recommend.... Performance by both narrators was exceptional.
This is my first audiobook by Sawyer Bennett! I love that all the passion and excitement is present as in harsher Romanica/ Erotica books but Bennett has accomplished the sex and rawness with less harsh sexual language throughout. I love the lust, but this was so endearing and loving- so real! Congratulations on an awesome book!!Can't wait to listen to all the others in this series!!
What a joyful treat!! Exceeded my expectations which were already high. So sweet and kept my interest throughout. Must buy the next one immediately.
I moved from Kansas to Alaska for a new adventure and I certainly got it! They don't call this the Last Frontier for no reason!
OK first of all, don't do what I did and listen to this book at work. Seriously I was sweating the entire time. But all kidding aside, this story was amazing, well read and performed, and just all around great. I think my favorite part is how well the author captured the true character of a hockey player. I am an off ice official of our local semi-pro team and while I don't go chasing after them (because not only is it unprofessional but they are a bit young for my taste) I am well versed in how they talk, act, and overall just ARE. Alex's character is dead on right down to his overuse of the F-bomb. I felt like I was back at the arena again.
If you love hockey and you love romance, there's no reason you shouldn't read this book!!!!!
I officially love this author. I wish the sex scenes more descriptive. But other than that it's a great book!!!!! love it
