The Arizona Vengeance are developing a reputation on the ice as one of hockey’s top teams. But one player’s reputation off the ice might just keep him from scoring. . . .

I’m having the time of my life with my new brothers on the Arizona Vengeance. We may be an expansion team, but after notching some big wins, the entire league knows to watch out for Erik Dahlbeck. That’s me.

The only person who doesn’t seem to think I’m so great? Blue Gardner, the hot-as-f*** flight attendant on our team plane. I sure wouldn’t mind joining the mile-high club with her, but besides bringing me lukewarm coffee, she won’t give me the time of day. Whatever I did to rub Blue the wrong way, my teammates think it’s hilarious. After all, we’re used to women flocking to us. #puckbunnies

When I run into Blue back on land, I’m shocked to learn how she spends her time off: taking care of her handicapped brother. There are layers to this girl I never imagined, layers I can’t wait to peel away. And that’s a new feeling for me.

But first I’ve got to find a way to melt that ice-cold stare. Because as much as I try to pretend I don’t care what Blue thinks of me, how can you not care when you’re falling for someone?

  • Player or Forever

    By Agent$$$$
    Erik, a starting player for the Vengeance, is a player. He's charming, funny, with a smile that makes women fall at his feet--except Blue. Blue can't stand Erik and everything he stands for. Blue works hard as a stewardess for the Vengeance and often works two jobs just so she can provide for her special needs brother, Billy. Erik has never had problems with the ladies, but Blue is a mystery to him. She's cordial, but on the cool to downright rude side. But Erik vows to get to the bottom of her hatred of him. As a child, Blue always wanted a sibling. When her brother was born with special needs, she didn't mind helping her mom care for him--until she graduated and wanted to leave to pursue dreams of acting and/or singing. Swamped with guilt at not being home to help with her brother when her parents died, Blue immediately moves home to make her brother her only priority. While Blue used to be a "party girl", she isn't that person anymore. Therefore, Erik the "player", is off limits. Woohoo! Great story, awesome goodness! I loved the interaction between Erik and Billy. I felt as though he showed Billy love and attention because he truly enjoyed spending time with him--not just to earn points with Blue. I loved that Tacker was opening up a bit more as well. I love that Erik was able to alleviate some of Blue past guilt while showing her he was a changed man. I about died when Erik insisted Blue attend her high school party to rub it in the "mean girls" faces that she was gorgeous AND dating a pro hockey player! HILARIOUS!!! Sooo relatable! I highly recommend this novel! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
  • Amazing

    By Loganhre90
    I adored this book, it was simply perfection within its pages!
  • Loved Erik and Blue!

    By Christine Miller28
    There is always something so great about a second chance romance. This one though I really connected with. I loved that Erik didn't remember Blue and that she didn't put up with any stuff from him. He strived to show her how much he had changed and how much he wanted her and wanted to be a part of her life. This is another great hockey chain from Ms. Bennett. I love these hot hockey stories with cocky jocks who fall hard for their women. Another great read!

  • My All Time Favorite!

    By Astroyic
    Overall, Erik felt like a treat. A big delicious, romantic treat for the heart! I can’t stop swooning! I’m absolutely smitten with every little detail that makes up this story. Sawyer Bennett captured my heart with this one and I think this is one of her best book to date (which is saying a lot). Watching the professional hockey players and notorious playboy, Erik Dalhbeck mature into a open caring man, i was in book heaven. Every moment with Blue and Erik was an ultimate pleasure. I had belly flutters, little electric sparks zapping me as I read. There is such beauty in this love story, such decadent sweetness, filled with heart and heat. Seriously, this book is perfection. It’s filled with all the heat and humor I crave and all the heartwarming, heartbreaking emotion that I can’t get enough of. Through funny, witty banter, burning attraction and the upheaval of loss, this story kept me glued to my kindle. So what are you waiting for? Don’t pass this book by. Get your copy of this amazing book and get reading - you are in for a treat. There aren’t enough stars for this one. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
  • Erik was a great read!

    By Katiekoz
    The storyline and development of Erik and Blue's relationship was interesting to read about, especially their little twist towards the beginning. Blue is caring and sweet, especially with her brother. I liked the Billy aspect of the story and found all of it very interesting. Erik really is a great guy. He's super sweet and patient with Blue and just wants her to be happy. I love everything he does for both her and Billy. I loved getting more about the other guys. I really want to know more about Tacker, he just seems so complex and intriguing. Legend's parts were very funny and I can't wait to see how his book is going to play out.

  • Entertaining read

    By Judy Hartley
    It’s time for Erik and Blue’s book., Erik Arizona Vengeance book 2! I have been eagerly awaiting its arrival since the first book and the banter we witnessed between these two in that book. And I was not disappointed. Not at all! Erick Dahlbeck, the up and coming star for the Arizona Vengeance, feels an instant attraction to Blue, the Vengeance’s flight attendant. But Blue certainly doesn’t doesn’t feel the same about Erik. He has a well know reputation with the “ladies”. You can feel the chill in the air when she rebuffs him time and time again. As a matter of fact she seems a little hostile towards him. But this doesn’t stop him from pursuing her. Nope! It just makes him want to get under her skin even more. Blue Gardner has a big chip on her shoulder when it comes to Erik. She’s hurt fist and foremost when he doesn’t remember her from a previous meeting. And second she just doesn’t have time for him right now. She’s busy with more important things. She can’t loose focus on her responsibilities. And she knows all to well that Erik could definitely make her loose focus. When Erik stumbles upon Blue in her off time he finds out what her priority in life is at the moment and it makes Erik realize that she’s got a lot on her plate. After Erik gets a glimpse of her present situation Blue soon realizes she probably has misjudged Erik. But unfortunately she just isn’t in a good place to pursue the possibility of a relationship. Let alone one with the rising hockey star. Or will Erik be able to tear down her walls and show her that he’s in this for more than a fling? I really enjoyed this entertaining, emotional and steamy read. You definitely can’t go wrong with Erik and Blue. You will enjoy every moment as Erik and Blue find their way to their HEA.
