Publisher's Summary

I built myself up from nothing. A product of the foster care system, I learned early on how to fight hard to get what I want. Whether it was starting my first company in college, earning my first billion, or buying my first professional sports team, I know how to get what I want when I want it.

Until now.

Willow Monahan is fierce, independent, and hot as hell. She also takes great pleasure in shutting down my advances. The younger sister of one of my star players, Willow intrigues me to my very core. And while she may have willingly given me her body, she is hesitant to offer up more. Now, I’m on a mission to find out why.

I’ve decided to approach my desire for Willow like I’ve approached much of my life: with persistence, determination, and a whole lot of that Dominik Carlson alpha charm. Buying a hockey expansion team, building the Arizona Vengeance from the ground up, and bringing home a championship may prove to be an easier feat than winning Willow’s heart.

But I’ve never been a quitter.

Willow Monahan...I’m coming for you.

The Team Owner with a Heart of Gold

I couldn't wait to get my hands on Dominik's story. The enigmatic team owner with a heart of gold has intrigued me from the start of the Arizona Vengeance series. I loved finally getting into his head and finding out more about his past. This is book 6 in the series, but can be read as a standalone. Previous couples and characters do appear, however, so the book would best be enjoyed in order.

The back and forth between Dominik and Willow was great and I really enjoyed the chase. Both are very sexually open and free and I appreciated that the author celebrated this. Dominik and Willow had fantastic chemistry and I loved that once they enter into their arrangement, they only have eyes for each other. Yes, there's the inevitable push away as things develop into more (which honestly made me want to smack some sense into the characters), but I loved how much they truly saw the other. I enjoyed this one a lot, but did wish for more exploration into Dominik and Willow's relationship.

I loved the casting for this audiobook! Erin Mallon was wonderful as Willow and Christian Fox couldn't have been more perfect as Dominik. He was just the right amount of alpha and cocky, but also sweet and vulnerable. His voice was so smooth and sexy. I sadly haven't listened to many titles narrated by Christian Fox, but that definitely has to change!

The book told Dominik and Willow's story, but in many ways it also felt like a big Arizona Vengeance hug. The previous couples and characters make numerous appearances and play an integral part in the story. Even if you haven't read/listened to those books, the author does an excellent job getting you up to speed so that you can appreciate the camaraderie and friendship between these characters. I especially loved the surprise cross-overs between Sawyer Bennett's other worlds and how it tied everyone together. The stage is now set for Wylde to take a huge fall (into love) in the next book and I can't wait!

Narrators Saved this book!

Right away the narrators are the best part of this story. Erin Mallon and Christian Fox do a great job and are fantastic narrators. That being said the story was a little lacking for me.
Dominik pursued Willow from the beginning. He was never confused or "tortured" about his interest in her or the fact that she is the sister of one of his players.
*Spoilers*
Willow on the other hand was always in this barely believable state of "lets just be friends with benefits and nothing more".
Her decisions barely made any sense and her rejection came out of nowhere and then she and her brother blamed Dominik for her choosing to leave to a war zone. Even Dominik blamed himself for her acting like a spoiled brat.
I'm not not down with that.
If you like women that are flighty and unable to own their decisions and have no idea what they want or need then this is the book for you. If that irritates you then this is not the book for you. Sorry :(

My favorite!!!

Hands down my favorite listen ever. Christian and Erin did such a fabulous job with the characters and the tones and inflections into the story had me cheering during the hockey game, crying in appropriate parts, smiling and kept my heart on the line.

Dominik is the most perfect alpha with the broken background yet so strong and had me longing for him. WIllow is a brilliantly written strong female character with a soft side that is evidenced in her relationship with Dominik. I loved their story and determination and I have never longed so much for a set of characters to make their story a happy ending.

Love these narrators!

Great story and narration! Lots of suspense, excitement and great story.
I love Christian Fox. He has a different way of narrating that I love. He’s able to make his characters have all the emotions wether it’s something small or major he has a way of making it all see so authentic.
Erin Mallon is one of my favorites also. I love the way she makes her characters feel realistic and embodies the personality.

So worth the wait

Dominik was completely worth the wait. I am so happy that Bennett wrote this story. Dominik’s story deserved to be told. For fans of this series, you won’t be disappointed. Can’t wait to see where this goes next.

The vocals are spot on. This was a completely enjoyable performance!

OMG this book is everything!

I have been anticipating this one for quite a while. I loved everything about this story. I have been looking forward to Domink since I read the others in this series. He is great. I love his story, I love the back story. I can't wait for more. Arizona Vengeance is one of my favorite Hockey series, and I read them a lot.

Erin Mallon & Christian Fox did a phenomenal job!

What an amazing and outstanding read/listen Dominik was!! My most favorite of this series so far.

Now, I just finish listening to this fabulous audiobook, and OMG, Erin Mallon & Christian Fox did a phenomenal job of bringing this story to life. This brilliant narrators have the unique ability of drawing you in and making you part of the fantastic world the author had created.

My reviews are always spoiler free, so I won't go into detail about this story; just know that this is the most touching, romantic, emotional, and passionate read/listen, in which our hero is the one invested in capturing his beloved's heart without losing his domineering-alpha image. I just love Dominik so freaking much!

You guys won't be disappointed when reading or listening to this flawless storytelling.

Oh Dominik

This latest edition to the Arizona Vengeance series does not disappoint, and we've been waiting for Dominik's story and Sawyer Bennett doesn't disappoint. We've been teased with the ultra rich team owner of the Vengence since the first book in the series. Willow is a free spirit and photojournalist and the opposite of Dominik and things become explosive between them.

Erin Mallon & Christian Fox are some of my favorite narrators, and they did not disappoint in this dynamic book. Narrators can make or break a book, and these two deliver a solid performance.

A Winning Team!

Wow! What can I say? This is the instalment of the series I didn't realise I was desperate for!! Dominik, uber-wealthy, kind-hearted Vengeance owner works hard and plays even harder! His good looks, charm and generosity have the ladies falling at his feet! Well.. apart from Willow Monahan! Her good looks, independents, lack of neediness and commitment to her work has him flummoxed! It's not just the challenge, as this is not a game Dominik's use to! This roller coaster ride is epic!
Christian Fox and Erin Mallon, once again bring the characters to life! What a duo!
All though this can be read as a stand-alone, it's so much more enjoyable when read in order! A 5 star listen all the way!

An Amazing Hockey Series

Another quick but no less enjoyable story in the Arizona Vengeance series.

After Tacker's story, which I had been desperate to read, I wasn't sure if another story would hold my interest but after being teased about Dominik and Willow's interactions, I knew reading on was not an option!

Willow was a really intriguing character especially as she appears to be the only woman to be not interested in Dominik or his good looks, wealth, success and charismatic ways. Willow's reticence to have anything other than the odd one night stand with Dominik perplexes him and the more Willow ignores him, the more he chases after her.

Being a photojournalist and travelling to some of the most dangerous places on earth, Willow lives her life on a knife-edge but when she returns home to the US, she agrees to meet up with Dominik again. However, Willow has one thing on her mind and that's the opposite of what Dominik wants from her.

With Willow back on home soil, Dominik knows this is his only chance to win her over but when he finds out she has been badly burned in a relationship before he accepts that in order to make her fall for him he must take his time. That is until he doesn't!

I really enjoyed Willow and Dominik's connection and I must admit to being a sucker for Dominik all through this series. I became slightly irritated when Dominik's willingness to take his time with Willow did an about-turn but even then, with emotion and passion driving him forward and in the heat of the moment, he does the opposite of his intentions but in such a sweet way. Fortunately, Willow finds herself in a situation which makes her re-evaluate her life and Dominik is able to fly in to save the day.

This is the first story in this series that I've listened to via Audible and whilst the experience was enjoyable, I think I prefer reading these stories at my own pace. The narrators, whilst clearly experienced, seemed to rush through their words and were almost gabbling at times. Even slowing down the talking speed didn't help, sadly.

I am so pleased to see that there is yet another book planned in this amazing series as I am in no way ready to be done with the Arizona Vengeance.

swoon!

I knew when we met Dominik in earlier books in the series I was going to love him and I wasn't disappointed. He was definitely alpha but also sweet and kind. The perfect package. Willow was stubborn extremely so and a little irritating if I'm honest.The way she treated Dominik towards the end of the book was so frustrating, I wanted to just smack her to bring her to her senses. Thankfully everything turned out fine in the end. Again perfect narration.

I've been wanting this book from the beginning

Woot! Another Sawyer Bennett hockey hottie to add to my collection!

Though this time it is team owner Dominik Carlson who is after my hockey loving heart.

I have been wanting his story almost as much as I wanted Tacker Hall's - and I wanted Tacker's book a lot.

I knew Dominik and Willow's story was going to be a fun one.

Erin Mallon (my FAV female narrator) and Christian Fox brought our lovelies to life. I enjoyed reading the story, but having Dominik's thoughts in my hears made it so much more enjoyable.

If you have read the previous books, especially Tacker you would know that Dominik has been chasing Willow Monahan - Dax's sister - for a while, and it has been fun seeing him try and striking out.

I adore Willow. Strong and independant and takes no crap from anybody. I want to be her friend.

There is a delicious push/pull between our lovelies - Dominik wants to pull her closer, Willow keeps pushing him away. You know that things are going to be explosive if they ever get together

Do they ever get there? You will have to read to find out!

I loved seeing more of the Vengeance guys and their lovely ladies, and it was sweet to see a little of the Cold Fury - I miss them all!

Now I need Wylde's story, stat.

Sexy addictive sports romance

Dominik has been my most anticipated Arizona Vengeance book boyfriend to date, and no! Not because he’s a multi millionaire (whoops sorry billionaire), no, because under his tough playboy exterior, he has a heart of gold, he’s caring and generous with his employees and team. All this is confirmed upon reading his story. I also found out he’s a god in bed, and after devouring every word in this addictive, sexy, action packed (it is the run for the coveted Stanley Cup after all) romance, I think I have to say he has earned the position of my most favourite. He’s a go-getter, and Willow Monaghan, is what he wants, he’s made that blatantly obvious. He says it as it is, and he’s sexy as all hell. He just needs to get Willow on the same page, and he’s got his work cut out for him. What a story, we get to meet a whole host of Sawyer Bennett’s previous heroes, and let’s not forget the heroine, from previous stories, and I’m not just talking hockey. A super favourite five star read for me, I was addicted from the first page, such an entertaining story, the hockey was front and centre, but a whole host of other things were happening alongside. What a wonderful couple Willow and Dominik could be if they just took that leap. I was desperate for Willow to see exactly what was in front of her. Team Dominik right here. The audio version is more than perfect - with two of my favourite reviewers, Christian Fox and Erin Mallon, they are the best Dominik and Willow I could have asked for. I did not want this audio to end.
