USA TODAY BESTSELLER • Meet the Arizona Vengeance, hockey’s hottest new team. They’re burning up the ice—until a one-night-stand with the coach’s daughter freezes one player in his skates.

Bishop Scott, co-captain. Not too shabby, huh? It’s all part of my fresh start with the NHL’s latest expansion team, and that means new teammates, a new coach, a new city, and a big new contract. Basically, I cannot f***ing wait to show my old squad what they’re missing.

But first, I decide to check out the town before the grind begins. Turns out Arizona chicks are totally smokin’, and I’m fortunate enough to meet one who’s looking for the same thing I am: a night of anonymous, unforgettable, no-strings-attached sex.

Fast forward to the Vengeance arena. It’s the last place I expect to see her again—let alone in her own office. Then bells go off and I finally realize who this girl is: Brooke Perron. My new coach’s daughter. All of a sudden, we’re picking up right where we left off, which means our hands are all over each other. That’s when her dad—my boss—walks in. And before I can get a word out, Brooke’s introducing me as her fiancé.

Sure, she just saved my ass. So why do I get the feeling Brooke’s going to turn my world upside down? Maybe it’s because this fake relationship feels way too real. . . .

  • Love it but....

    By LinzeeV
    I really loved this book but then ending was lackluster. The ending just needed to be a little longer or have a little more the conflict was solved and then the author just ended it.
  • Loved it

    By Feelrefreshed
    Author never disappoints. Love her hockey inspired stories. This one was great. Love how she didn’t go the typical route when her “friend enemy” moved on her man. His handling of situation was great.

    I love everything Sawyer Bennett writes, especially her books about sexy hockey players. So naturally, I was excited to learn she is starting the new Arizona Vengeance hockey series. The Arizona Vengeance are a new hockey franchise and the owner has been able to hire some of the best players from all the teams around the country. This first story in the series is about Bishop, one of the players traded to the Arizona Vengeance. Bishop is still adjusting to his trade when, just before training camp starts, he meets Brooke at a bar and they have a one-night stand. Afterwards, Bishop discovers Brooke is his new coach’s daughter and she also works for the Arizona Vengeance. Bishop is surprised and nervous by this turn of events. When Bishop's new coach finds him kissing Brooke, they decide to pretend they are in a relationship. Bishop and Brooke try to keep their distance from each other, but circumstances keep bringing them together. As they spend more time together, they discover they have a lot in common, enjoy each other’s company and share a lot of chemistry. I liked both Bishop and Brooke and thought they complement each other. Bishop is a great guy; he is caring and protective of Brooke and he also has a good relationship with his teammates. Brooke is sweet, has a big heart and she can’t help herself from falling for Bishop. This is a feel good, fun story with great writing and dialogue. The characters are easy to connect with and there are lots of entertaining secondary characters. I can’t wait I read more books in this series. Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book vIa Cocktails and Books and Netgalley. The opinions expressed are my own.

    Sawyer Bennet has easily become one of my go to writers. I love everything she has and her newest hockey story, Bishop, is no different. I flipping loved the entire book. The plot. The characters. The drama. The humor. Then ending. L. O. V. E. D. It! Chapter 1.... Bishop is in a new city with a new hockey team and sees her across the bar. He goes over and meets Brooke. One night stand time. Next day, Bishop heads into arena. Sees a Smoking hot pair of legs, she turns and it’s Brooke. Who shares the same last name as his new coach. Oops. To save face when the dad. Aka his new boss walks in, she blurts our he’s her fiancé. This book was awesome. Hot hot hot. Sweet sweet sweet. I think Bishop May be one of my fav characters. Ever. Loved it. Highly recommend.
  • Loving the start to this new series!

    By Lb2bnmv
    Sawyer Bennett & sports romance go together soooo well! This new series is starting out amazingly...i loved and adored Bishop! He's the ultimate good guy in a super hot package! Bishop & Brooke may seem to be together but while not real, it sure does grow beautifully into something more! The two have amazing chemistry, their love is super hot and beautiful, all at the same time! Brooke had gotten the short end of the stick, having to move, to put others ahead of herself, doing it again and again! Luckily one of her sacrifices definitely pays off... I loved meeting some of the secondary characters and cannot wait for their stories...⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as always for the talented S Bennett! Highly recommend!
  • True Love or Not...

    By Agent$$$$
    With hopes of the Stanley Cup on the horizon, Bishop is unexpectedly traded to Arizona Vengeance-a new expansion team in the league. Bitter, but hoping for the best, Bishop decides to meet up at the bar for drinks with a few of his new teammates before the official season and training begin. At the bar, he spots an intriguing woman. After some small talk, they agree to a one night stand. Bishop realizes he wants more than one night with this mysterious woman, but she left without giving him her name. So it comes as quite a shock when Bishop arrives to the arena and finds that his mystery woman works for the Vengeance AND she's the new coach's daughter! When the coach finds them making out in her office, Brooke introduces Bishop as her fiancé. While she does it to protect Bishop, she's perpetrated a lie that grows and grows. In order to keep himself out of the coach's line of fire and to be able to continue seeing Brooke, Bishop agrees to Brooke's plan. They'll pretend they're "fake" engaged, then Brooke will break up with Bishop at the end of the season so that it appears as though Brooke's the "bad" guy. What they don't plan on is the relationship becoming real. I loved the lead into to new spin off series! This novel lays the groundwork for so many other characters and their stories. I can't wait to learn more about Erik. Comedy, romance, true love, and loss were perfectly woven together. Brooke's selfless move to Arizona to help her dad through his grieving was so touching. I truly enjoyed Bishop's take charge attitude, especially when it came to Brooke's "friend". This is one of the best fake relationship love stories I've read! Very relatable! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
