In a league full of troublemakers, Cold Fury defenseman Roman Sýkora stands out - at least when it comes to negative publicity. When he's not chilling in the penalty box, the sizzling Czech skate demon is racking up tabloid headlines for his scandalous behavior with the ladies. But now Roman's feeling the burn from management to clean up his act, or else. Luckily he's got an enticing distraction: a fun-loving barista who plays the ukulele and brings out a side of Roman he didn't know he had.
Lexi Robertson came to Raleigh, North Carolina, to finally meet her father, Brian Brannon, and her half sister, Gray, both of whom work in the Cold Fury's front office. That's where she first meets sexy, intimidating Roman - who's really a big softie at heart. As one relationship takes off, another begins: Brian seems to be clicking with Lexi's boss at the coffeeshop. But when the friction between Roman and her new family heats up, Lexi wonders whether she's a pawn in their game. Feeling hurt and foolish, Lexi's ready to quit while she's ahead. Trouble is, Roman's not ready to quit on her.

By far my favorite book of the series. Both of the narrator's did an excellent job on this book. They captured the bad boy perfectly, and Lexie character had me laughing out loud more than once. Great overall story. I can't wait for Lucas.
I highly enjoyed this 7th book in the Cold Fury hockey series! Roman, the hero, is one of those players who is always making trouble for the team, whether it's fights or naked pics on Twitter. The heroine, Lexie, is the unknown daughter of Brian Brannon and sister to Gray Brannon. Gray is suspicious at first, but comes to accept that she has a sister. Roman meets Lexie on the day she comes to the team offices to try to meet her father, who she found out about just before her mother's death. He's instantly drawn toward her and the feeling is mutual. Things are complicated by Gray not having any liking or respect for Roman. It's entertaining to see how all these family shenanigans work out, because Brian meets Georgia (Lexie's boss) and they fall in love too. Great narration as always! I hope there are more books in this series!
I love Sawyer Bennett and this series!! I swear, they just keep getting better & better. The characters, the narrator's, story line are all A++++
I am obsessed with audio books! My favorite genre is erotica and romance -- there's just not enough hours in the day to enjoy ...
Roman is so bad that he's good -- truly another ice hockey god. And definitely good for the sweet and charming Lexie. The special treat of this book is that it's two love stories in one book. The Brannons are an endearing family and they find a way to pass that sense of family throughout the Cold Fury team. I love that these relationships are so entwined with the team and team politics. Sawyer Bennett has written another hit in this series.
The narrators were good but Graham Halstead did not speak Roman's voice with an accent. I really wanted to hear the accent.
Definitely worth a credit. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
