Publisher's Summary

The Arizona Vengeance is killing it on the ice. But one player can’t seem to keep his eye on the puck - all thanks to the woman he just married to save her life.

“Find your next hockey hero in Sawyer Bennett’s Arizona Vengeance series.” (New York Times best-selling author Jill Shalvis)

My name is Dax Monahan, and hockey is my passion. And if you want to succeed in this sport you have to bust your ass 24/7. I’ve never had a hard time focusing on my career, but when my past comes knocking, no amount of training can prepare me for what lies on the other side of the door. 

Regan Miles was always like a sister to me. When a shared tragedy brings us face to face after several years, I’m shocked to see just how much she’s changed. Gone is the shy, awkward little girl that always used to chase me and her brother around. Instead, I’m faced with a gorgeous woman who makes it damn hard to concentrate on anything but her. 

Turns out, she’s in trouble, and the only way out is to get married. 

I surprise myself when I tell her to marry me. Order her, actually. And, most shocking of all, she doesn’t even hesitate before saying yes. 

So it’s settled. We’re getting hitched, and she’s moving to Arizona with me. All platonic, of course. 

The catch?

I never knew I’d fall so hard for my best friend’s little sister.

In Sickness and In Health

Dax is a sexy best friend's little sister/marriage of convenience romance. The story is book 4 in the series and runs along the same timeline as the previous book, Legend, but can be read/listened to as a stand alone. For maximum enjoyment though, I definitely recommend them since previous characters appear throughout the series.

I really enjoyed the narration by Aiden Snow and Virginia Rose. Rose gave an emotional performance as Regan and really captured her vulnerability and pain. Snow's deep voice was perfect for Dax, but I did find it was too gruff for the female characters (which is understandable). There wasn't a ton of variation in his other characters as well, so there were a few times I wasn't sure which character was speaking at first.

Dax and Regan had amazing chemistry and I really loved the progression of their friendship to more. They have known each other their whole lives and I think that added a sweetness to their connection that I don't always feel. Yes, there is push and pull between them as the lines get blurred, but I liked that there wasn't any unnecessary drama between them (or if there was, it was resolved quickly). I think what made this a less engaging listen for me, was that it felt like this book spent just as much time on Dax and Regan as it did setting up the next books in the series. Don't get me wrong - I can't wait to read/listen to Tacker (I just want to hug this man so much!!) and Dominik's (YUM with a capital Y!) stories, but I felt like it took away too much of the spotlight from Dax and Regan. I did love seeing all the previous couples (Erik and Blue!) and characters as well as getting to know Willow, Dax's sister and the likely love interest of team owner Dominik Carlson. An enjoyable listen overall and I'm excited to continue on with the series!

Falling hard for the right one

Another Vengeance player falls hard, and falls for all the right reasons. Lance Miles was Dax Monahan's best friend and older brother to Regan. When circumstances require Dax to step in and help Regan out, he really steps up to the occasion. He not only finds a way to take care of Regan, but also finds love. However, their journey together includes big bumps and they learn to work out issues together. There's wit, humor, love, compassion, romance, and some hotness in Dax's story! Enjoy!

In this Audible copy, there's a narrator for Dax and Regan's POV. Aiden's deep voice contributes to the sexy nature of Dax and Virginia's voice contributes to the sweet and innocent nature of Regan. Both of them did a great job!

I love Dax's sister Willow and her impact to the story. Hopefully there will be more of her and Dominik. Also, there's more of the other Vengeance players, like Erik, Legend, and Bishop.

At the end of Dax's story is the beginnings of Tacker's story!! I can't wait!

Wonderful listen

I loved this book/listen and this story hit home. Regan Miles and Dax Monahan have been friends for Regans life and then when life comes in the middle of everything Dax decides to “take care “ of Regan. This was a great couple and I could not stop reading/listening until I finished the book. This was the first book in this series that I read/listened to so know I have to go back and read other books from this series.

You are going to love this story... with a Vengeance! 5 Stars! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic's Read

Dax & Regan have known each other since birth. So when tragedy happens & Dax sees her for the first time as a woman he is awestruck & goes alpha protective on her. They have sizzling chemistry & a slow burning love. You gotta love those Hockey Players!

This is my first story by Sawyer Bennett and I will be back for more.
Audible Narration was perfectly chosen smooth voices.

Aiden is Dax!

Dax is the fourth book in the Arizona Vengeance series by the talented Sawyer Bennett. Sawyer writes some of my favorite hockey heroes ever! I've fallen in love with the Vengeance team and their women. We've known Dax for a while and he's sweet, sexy, easy going and fun. Dax's story happens at the same time as Legend's so we get to see some of what already happened from his point of view. I personally love when authors do that! It gives us more insight to what they are all thinking.

Story:
Dax has known Regan her entire life. She's his best friend's sister and when they both lose someone Dax shows up to support Regan. When he learns she needs help he tells her they are getting married. She agrees, because she can't not, and she moves to Arizona with him. They love each other as friends. But now that they are older, there is definitely attraction. Dax wants to take care of Regan and kiss the breath out of her. But can they give in to their physical desires or will that end their life long friendship? After a few heated kisses they want to try for more. Will Dax be able to let go of his player ways for the love of a good woman? I loved this story. I knew Dax was going to fall hard and I loved watching him go down. He's sexy and sweet and a good man! Regan is strong and independent. They are one of my favorite Vengeance couples!

Audio:
I’m a big fan of both Aiden and Virginia's and I thought they did an incredible job with Dax and Regan. Aiden has such a sexy voice and he always gives me the tingles. Virginia is the perfect Regan with her emotion and stubbornness. They made me love Dax and Regan more!

Dax and Regan

Oh my goodness, Dax did a thing! He up and married Regan when he found out she was sick and needed insurance. Seriously! Isn't that something special. We knew he was a sweetheart but this beats all. Now they are trying to keep it quiet but, oops, alcohol helps to loosen up the inhibitions and kisses happen and then clothes are coming off but then the next morning happens and Dax steps on his own tongue when he can't get out of his head and ends up apologizing. Crazy! Good thing his sister comes to visit and her naughtiness brings her and Regan to the rookie party and Dax goes all Alpha husband and lets it slip that he has every right to act that way because this is a new start for them. Now they need to learn to live together but will ever learn to get out of their own way and learn to love. Stay tuned, this was a great read and truly one not to miss. You could read this as a standalone but I will say about this one as I do all the others, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO! THIS IS A GREAT SERIES THAT CANNOT BE MISSED!

***Audio edition***
I also listened to the audio edition of this book and O-M-G this was so, so, SO good! No matter what edition you read or listen to, you cannot miss this book! The narrators did an excellent job!

Love this story

I am in love with this series! Sawyer always does such a great job with her storylines. But I’m really impressed with the health issues the heroine has to deal with. Bennett’s writing was flawless! I really can’t wait to see where she takes this series next!

The audio is on point. It was very relaxing and easy to listen to!

Narrators were perfection

Hockey has always been the only thing Dax concentrates on. When his best friend Lance dies Lance's sister Regan is left without the one person who knows her secret but also is her only source of support. Once Dax learns of her illness he steps up and marries her in order to keep her insured. But can the two keep the relationship platonic? Or will the sparks that fly move them from a marriage of convenience to a marriage worth fighting for. With beautifully written characters that have to hit rock bottom before they can fly and a storyline that had me hooked from the opening dialogue this was a great read. I now need to go back and read the rest of the series. The narrators made this so enjoyable to listen to.

Highlight of my week!


Highlight of my week listening to this amazing story! I haven’t listened to Aiden before and I have to say his deep voice is fantastic and I loved everything about how he and Virginia narrated the book!!!
The way they told Dax and Regans story made it come to life and makes you feel so much a part of it as well!!
I laughed, swooned and got a bit heated in certain moments!! Lol!!
The camaraderie, the friendships, the emotional parts and the all around feel of this heartwarming book is something everyone should listen to!
An audiobook that really needs to be devoured! Can’t wait for more of this series!!

Sweet and Hot!

Dax can absolutely be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend this whole series!! Regan is the little sister of Dax's best friend. And when his best friend passes away-he feel's it falls on him to make sure Regan is taken care of. Not only because he loves her like family but because it's the right thing to do. And when he finds out she truly needs his help, his solution is a marriage in name only. Even though he is has, what he feels, are inappropriate thoughts about her. Regan knows she needs the help, she just isn't sure this is the right way to go about it. But she doesn't feel like she has a choice, and she knows she can count on Dax. What she never plans on is for her feelings for him to morph into something altogether different.

I absolutely loved this story!! Dax and Regan are beyond sweet together and there is most definitely the hotness factor that you come to expect in a Sawyer Bennett book too. Regan is going through something that no one should have to go through. And the way Dax reacts to it is beyond what you would truly expect, but it just goes to show how much depth and love he is truly capable of. The narration is absolutely great to listen to. There aren't any strange accents and I truly enjoyed the dual narration. It made it seem more like an actual story from two different points of view instead of just trying to imagine it that way with the same voice. And Aiden Snow's voice in some of the love scenes? Extremely HOT!! I loved every second of it! And after reading this one, I can't wait for Thacker and Dominik's stories!!

Dax’s voice is EVERYTHING!

Falling for your brothers best friend. Never a good idea but the heart wants what the heart wants right?!

As usual Sawyer Bennett wrote the most swoon worthy story that will give you all the feels! This was only enhanced by the narrators. Their voices were perfect for these characters. Regan and Dax were the perfect match, the chemistry was there 100%

This book was super tropey which I loved! Dax is a hockey player, brothers best friend and there’s an Arranged marriage! Regan has a rare disease which is extremely expensive to treat and Dax being the friendly guy that he is comes up with the perfect plan.

When I closed my eyes I could immediately envision Dax and Regan because of how well the narration flowed with the story.

As the two grow closer together things get heated and feelings are so revealed. The main conflict in the book was Regan’s illness and it’s affect on her.

This was an easy summer read that I’ll definitely pick up again. The narrator for Dax is reason enough to come back!

Another hockey hunk lost to love

The stories and the characters in this series just keep getting better and better. Not too much ice action in Dax, but plenty of behind the scenes moments with the team, and the management. A wonderful friends to lovers story with some truly heartfelt moments, wonderful writing and lovely characters. Dax is confident and sexy with just the right amount of alpha, Regan is independent and strong willed, but she’s not stupid, she knows when to accept help, and let’s face it, she needs all the help she can get. Luckily Dax is in a position to help, after all she is family. A little drama, a lot of romance and another hockey hunk leaves singledom. Aiden Snow and Virginia Rose (both of whom I love), narrated Dax and a Regan to perfection.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I loved this book. DAX and Reagan were a great couple with loads of humour and endless chemistry. DAX was incredibly supportive regarding Reagan’s illness and loved her unconditionally throughout it. Another great book by Sawyer Bennett. Aidan Snow and Virginia Rose were awesome reading the characters, their voices bought the characters to life for me. ❤️
