(Cody Fury Hockey #8)
USA TODAY BESTSELLER • The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.
Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.
Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.
The Carolina Cold Fury series from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett can be read together or separately:
Lucas is the 8th book in Cold Fury Hockey series. Another great entry into the professional world of hockey.
Lucas is enjoying the life of a single guy in the world of professional sports where women and money are aplenty.
Stephanie is an independent woman enjoying her single/professional life. The two of them meet and have one night of fun that leads to an unplanned pregnancy.
Watching these two navitagate how to keep their independence but also be committed to each other is entertaining. Stephanie doesn’t want to rely on anyone because of the way she was raised. She came from a wealthy family who didn’t make time for their child. She learned to only depend on herself. Meanwhile, Lucas is trying NOT to suffocate her as she figures out her way in her career and personal life.
A great thing about this series is the reader gets to hear about the other players and their love interest. It’s fun to see what they are up to.
Sports lovers will enjoy this series of hot guys on the ice.
