Release Day Blitz + Review: Lucas by Sawyer Bennett

Lucas (Cold Fury, Book #8) 

Sawyer Bennett 

Release Date: September 19, 2017

descriptionThe 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.

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lucas is the 8th book in the Cold Fury Hockey series and I feel like I could never get enough of these guys! What I loved about a series being long is how you get small glimpses of past characters. Of course, it's not as detailed as before but Sawyer Bennett never forgets to mention Alex or Garrett which I find great because I'm attached to these guys from the start and seeing they are in a good place is always a huge plus.

If you don't recall who is Lucas Fournier and/or if you haven't read any book in the series yet, now worries, the book is a complete standalone but it also give you the opportunity to know who's who. You won't be lost in this now big family of hockey players.

I particularly enjoyed this story because of how Lucas is. He's such a sweet & great guy knowing what he wants and what he doesn't. Stephanie was kind of the same way. She has a strong personality and knows that if she wants to have a good time with a man she goes for it without any expectation. She even prefer it that way.

I don't read a lot of books with unexpected pregnancy because I find it more convenient than anything. It's not a surprise I like to read about but here as it's the main subject I was interested to know how Sawyer Bennett will manage to make me like the book. And well she did! As always if I may add.

Lucas & Stephanie's attraction was obvious but being a parent and being involved doesn't come in one day. Even if these two have lots in common and Stephanie's way of thought is a huge obstacle to an HEA.

The only thing I wanted different is a true epilogue for Lucas & Stephanie even if I have to admit I'm literally dying to have Van's book with all the tension we got to witness.
