Publisher's Summary

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.

loved this book

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.

Really fun!

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!

Unapologetic Bad Boy on Ice

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.

Yawn!

It’s sad when the B-storyline is more interesting than the main one. I wanted more of the Brian and Georgia story than Roman and Lexi. Roman was a jerk for no good reason and Lexi was kinda whiny. I found myself rolling my eyes at her. The narrators threw me off because Cris did an accent for Roman and Graham didn’t. The book as a whole was okay

Roman

I loved the story and the characters. I would have liked and a little bit more of Roman falling in love. I liked his character and would have loved a tiny bit of conflict on falling in love. Not a lot, I'm not big on the whole angsty kind of books which tend repeat the same story anyway. The story as a whole was great.

Loved Roman!

Any additional comments?


Another great instalment in Sawyer Bennett's Cold Fury series! I have read these books out of order and it hasn't hampered my enjoyment of them at all! ROMAN is fun, sexy and light on the angst which was exactly what I was after. I loved the instantaneous connection between the bad boy Roman and free spirited Lexi.

I enjoyed the storyline of Brian and Georgia as well as the development of the newfound family bond between Lexi and the Brannons.

Overall, this was a highly entertaining audio listen although my only complaint was that the male narrator for Roman didn't emulate the Czech accent at all, whereas the female narrator did when Lexi interacted with Roman.
