USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett scores big-time with the first novel in a sexy new series hot enough to melt the ice.

Hockey star Alexander Crossman has a reputation as a cold-hearted player on and off the rink. Pushed into the sport by an alcoholic father, Alex isn’t afraid to give fans the proverbial middle finger, relishing his role as the MVP they love to hate. Management, however, isn’t so amused. Now Alex has a choice: fix his public image through community service or ride the bench. But Alex refuses to be molded into the Carolina Cold Fury poster boy . . . not even by a tempting redhead with killer curves.

As a social worker, Sutton Price is accustomed to difficult people—like Alex, who’s been assigned to help her create a drug-abuse awareness program for at-risk youth as part of the team’s effort to clean up his image. What she doesn’t expect is the arrogant smirk from his perfect lips to stir her most heated fantasies. But Sutton isn’t one to cross professional boundaries—and besides, Alex doesn’t do relationships . . . or does he? The more she sees behind Alex’s bad-boy fa├žade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers.

Review ~ 
 This is my first book by Sawyer Bennett and I can honestly say it won't be my last. I picked it up because, well, I love hockey and hockey players! I just couldn't pass it up and I'm glad I didn't.
Sawyer Bennett gives us two very different characters that are easy to relate to and become invested in. Alex is the first character I've read that hates playing hockey. It's his career and he hates it - who can't relate to that?  Sutton on the other hand, is very passionate about her career as a counselor but working with Alex may change her mind! 
Alex and Sutton have a lot of hurdles to jump as they uncover good and bad about each other.  Their pasts have shaped them into who they are today and some issues must be resolved before the bumps in the road become too much for them to handle.
Alex is a passionate and emotional story that has some humor, heat, and love all rolled together.  Sawyer Bennett gives us a strong story that is compelling and one of my top reads of the year.  Pick it up today and enjoy it!
