Release Day Blitz + Review: Marek by Sawyer Bennett

Marek: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel 

Sawyer Bennett 

Release Date: May 22, 2018

descriptionWhen the Carolina Cold Fury’s hottest young star gets blindsided by an ex with a scandalous secret, it’s game on.

“One of the best voices in contemporary romance.”—New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne

Marek Fabritis is used to delivering blows, not receiving them. But when he gets tipped off by an anonymous email about his ex-girlfriend, the news leaves him ice cold—and it’s not because Gracen Moore is getting married to a total jerk. It’s the fact that Marek has a three-year-old daughter he never knew about. Now he’s going back home, not to play knight in shining armor but to make damn sure that no man takes what’s his. For the first time, there might be something more important than hockey.

Gracen Moore has always loved Marek. That’s why she let him go, so he could pursue a career in the NHL. And that’s why she never told him about Lilly. Only now does Gracen realize that she made an unforgivable mistake. But is that any reason for Marek to crash her wedding and make an epic scene? If the spark that still smolders between them is to be trusted, maybe. Still, Gracen’s not getting her hopes up. Because she knows better than anyone that appearances aren’t always what they seem. . . .

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Marek is the 11th book in the Cold Fury series (Can you believe it ? 11th book!? And I read them ALL! ) I was waiting non-too-patiently for this one after the way it ended in Reed. Marek literally kidnapped Gracen and her 3 years old daughter to avoid her getting married with someone he dislikes.
To me Marek acted like a huge D-bag because of his manwhore ways! He dropped his long-time girlfriend to live a great life as a hockey player but then he decide to let her no choice to live with him because he found out the fact she has a child and it’s his. Both Gracen & Marek’s actions come back to bite their ass and what comes next is not pretty.

I had huge expectations for this book and I wanted answers on Marek sudden change. Unfortunately, it didn’t go as deep as I wanted. Gracen & Marek have issues they needed to discuss and the story focus a lot on the fact Gracen kept their daughter a secret for so long. I think putting the blame on Gracen was too easy and Marek decision to leave Gracen was left as an immature move on his part which didn’t sit well with me.

I like to see Marek’s relation with his daughter, I like seeing him change and become a family man. I just wish I understood his actions better all along.

I enjoyed once again reading about the rest of the bunch. Reading her series with many books is also the guarantee I’ll have news on previous characters and Sawyer Bennett never disappoint to give great vibes from the rest of them.
