Alex Book Cover Alex
Cold Fury Hockey
Sawyer Bennett

From Amazon.com:

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 façade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers.

Foxy's Review:

**3.75 HOT COVER stars**

Wow, when I saw that cover I knew I wanted to read ALEX

Description

The MVP (Most Valuable Player Prick), Alex, is not a well-liked player or person. He may be Mr. Hockey Hottie but he’s not winning points with fans or teammates. His attitude stems from his childhood with a drunk father. This lack of love for the game and his poor attitude has his coach wanting him to clean up his act. 

Forced to work on a project to better his image he’s assigned to work with social worker, Sutton, on a drug/alcohol campaign to help the youth in the community. At the beginning of the book I had a few moments where I felt like Sutton wasn’t a 22 year old but rather a 40 year old divorcee (drinking wine alone in the house she owns…all she was missing was a cat or two).

“Seems some hot hockey player has my attention now.” -Sutton

“Yeah? That’s ironic, because I’m sort of lusting after this hot drug counselor I met.” -Alex

“Sounds like a match made in heaven.” -Sutton


I loved the “Love Actually” movie moment in the hockey rink. I fell a little for Alex at that moment. But then during the epilogue he had me swooning.

COLD FURY is a professional hockey team chalked full of hot guys that we will see in upcoming books.
