Publisher's Summary

Marek Fabritis is used to delivering blows, not receiving them. But when he gets tipped off by an anonymous email about his ex-girlfriend, the news leaves him ice cold - and it's not because Gracen Moore is getting married to a total jerk. It's the fact that Marek has a three-year-old daughter he never knew about. Now he's going back home, not to play knight in shining armor but to make damn sure that no man takes what's his. For the first time, there might be something more important than hockey.

Gracen Moore has always loved Marek. That's why she let him go, so he could pursue a career in the NHL. And that's why she never told him about Lilly. Only now does Gracen realize that she made an unforgivable mistake. But is that any reason for Marek to crash her wedding and make an epic scene? If the spark that still smolders between them is to be trusted, maybe. Still, Gracen's not getting her hopes up. Because she knows better than anyone that appearances aren't always what they seem...

Contains mature themes.

Va Va Va Voom!

Gracen Moore decided to keep a secret when her heart was broken. Love was not on her side and it wasn’t enough to keep her man in her life. She kept their daughter a secret and when he finds out she’s getting married, he disrupts her wedding and forces her to move with him so they can straighten this mess out. She doesn’t understand why he came, but, now that he knows about Lilly, she has no choice but to do his bidding and answer his questions. She knows she’s made a mess of things, but, that does not mean that she has to accept his cruelty. She also realizes that she never stopped loving him and being in his presence is making this more difficult than she could’ve ever imagined.

Marek Fabritis is a jerk! When he finds out that Gracen is getting married he goes to stop the wedding. What he finds is a miniature version of himself, only it’s a girl. He chose his hockey career over Gracen and she kept his daughter a secret. He has no clue how to deal with this discovery, all he knows is that he needs them near him to sort this mess out and learn how to be a father.

The Good: I loved listening to this story. The plot was realistic and the emotions ran deep. Very engaging and well written. The sex was so hot and the dirty talk was scorching!

The Bad: Marek was such an asshole! He treated Gracen like crap and would not let her forget what she did.

The Ugly: Gracen’s blackmailer...and that’s all I’m going to say..

In true Sawyer Bennett style, this story is a must read. You could feel how hurt Marek was, but, you could also understand why Gracen kept this secret from him. He made it clear that his career came first. Will their daughter bring them together? Maybe. Grace is being threatened and having her in his presence constantly, is stirring up feelings that he thought were gone. How can he forgive her betrayal and look passed why she did it? Gracen was not a fool and she refused to allow him to make her pay for her mistake over and over again. Will love prevail when the obvious attraction between them can no longer be ignored? A Solid 5 Star Read!

needs a good editor and a therapist

These people need therapy. Neither one can have a disagreement without resorting to hurling the most hurtful things they can think of back at the person they "love". Also, I don't like Gracen. Your kid got hurt. It happens. It's not that big a deal and if you want them to learn how to handle adversity, you help them through it and move on, not play the blame game because the other parent didn't wrap them in bubble wrap when you were out of sight. I'm frustrated that this was the end of the series and we didn't see how everyone turned out, the H was a dick, the h was whiny, and it almost felt like it was written by someone else entirely. 🙁

Marek

Not my dream man by any means. That said. Marek Fabritis is self centered man child! Marek is the one who breaks Gracen's heart. Marek is the one who wanted to have experiences without being tied down! Our heroin is a weak self shell of a woman. Gracen is getting married to a total jerk (to save her parents?) Okay Gracen keeps her daughter a secret. True. Marek left her with "I don't want any ties". Marek is NO knight in shining armor. He threatens to take her child away from her! Not feeling positive about this couple. I enjoyed the other books in this series. This one, not so much.

wow REALLY!

i love the storyline but i hate how Gracen is treated and she puts up with it . i wish it was more realistic because a real women wouldn't not put up with being treated so horrible by a guy, yes they have a daughter and she wants him to be in her life but she doesn't have to be treated so bad and so she kept the daughter from the dad for 3yrs but he left her so that's on him and if he wanted his daughter he wouldn't always be gone from the house so much.. so she needs to grow a backbone and leave . way be miserable and alone. screw him and live for u and your daughter!

I loved all the series accept this one

I can't believe this series ended with Marek! He is such a self centered jerk and the heroine, oh my gosh, she has no backbones. How can this author wrote this last one with such two sorry characters?! After ten good stories and characters, I am sooo disappointed! if you like ass hole hero and doormat heroine, this one is for you!

Marek

An emotional roller coaster ride to go on with with Marek and Gracen. I have loved and enjoyed each of the Cold Fury books, this one however is not one of my favorites. I just could not bring myself to like Marek. He is one big, selfish guy. Gracen and Marek have a complicated past. His attitude and jerky behavior was hard to take. I really wanted to love this story like all the others, I pre-ordered this book a long time ago and anticipated it arriving but was a little saddened that I could not like Marek as much as I have adored all the other men of Cold Fury. I still gave this book 4 stars because it was a nice story even if there were times I was upset with the Main character.
Narration was perfect!

love this series of books

The story starts out with a wedding being stopped and Mark finds out he is a father. I understand his anger but I do not understand his ignoring his child. If he is angry for not knowing his child why keep away after you know. Gracen is also a bite of I don't know how to say this without sounding mean. I like her I get she has been through a lot being dumped but she could have reached out and been like hey I'm pregnant and let it go not expecting much since they broke up. but she keeps it to herself self then she is guilty because of it and also decided to marry a man to save her parent's home without talking to her parents this doesn't make sense to me since most banks don't talk to others about loans unless you are on them. But I did like this story and I find that it is not hard to believe the love story and second chance part. Cris and Graham are great.

Didn't feel like a final book

I actually finished the entire series!! It actually wasn't that hard because these books are a lot of fun and read quickly. The final book is about Marek and his ex girlfriend Gracen, who he saves from a forced marriage to a manipulative man. I liked Marek's relationship with his daughter Lily, they were cute together and watching him learn to parent was fun. Gracen wasn't my favorite woman of the series. It was pretty messed up that she didn't tell Marek he had a daughter and a couple times she was unnecessarily mean to him. I'm glad we still got to see Reed, but for a final book I was hoping we'd see all the players from the series to get some closure. It almost feels like there should be one more where we see them play for another Stanley Cup and get an epilogue of the team.
Great series that I enjoyed listening to. Each couple was unique and had their own fun moments.

not the best story

It was a blah story to begin with but the end was gag worthy. Hate it when mothers think they are far superior. Grow up.
