USA TODAY BESTSELLER • The Arizona Vengeance is hockey’s hottest new team. But hockey’s hottest goalie is learning that even the best players sometimes need an assist.
“You don’t have to like sports to love these books!”—New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis
Everything is clicking for the Vengeance. We may be new, but we’re well on our way to winning the championship, and I’m having the time of my life headlining the sports media as the hottest goalie—hell, player—ever. I for one am going to live up to my name . . . because I am Legend Bay.
Dragging my ass home from the gym, I’m blinded by some gaudy, glowing holiday lights. As usual, my hot-as-hell neighbor Pepper Nantais has gone way over the top. But just as I’m about to tell her off, something else catches my eye . . . Seems like Santa left me a present, and not one I was expecting.
As life takes an unexpected turn, I realize that there’s much more to Pepper than meets the eye. Sure, she’s gorgeous. And exasperating. And her taste in decorating may be a bit . . . unique.

But beneath her carefree demeanor is a fierce determination and a heart of gold. And before I know it I’ve fallen for her. Hard . . .
Pepper is exactly the woman I never knew I needed.
Praise for Legend

    Legend: An Arizona Vengeance Novel By: Sawyer Bennett Narrated by: Joe Arden, Andi Arndt Sawyer Bennett pens another amazing “Arizona Vengeance” novel and I loved every word of it. She has a wonderful writing style, creates storylines that are interesting, likable, easy to relate to and captivating from start to end. I also adore the characters she creates, they are complex and well developed, there is so much more to each one of the hot hockey players on the team and it is great finding out more about them. This is book is Legend’s story, he is a goalie for the team and an all around likable guy. He and his neighbor Pepper are at odds because of her flamboyant decor she places around her home, some she does just to taunt him. Pepper is an author who works from home, she likes to make her yard bright and cheery for inspirational purposes, add bonus is it bothers her grumpy neighbor, Legend. Just before Christmas Legend arrives home to find an unexpected package waiting for him, he is shocked and runs to Pepper’s house for assistance. I thought it was great how she helped him with everything, the two were great together and for each other. There is never a dull moment in this book, there is plenty of drama, angst, some action packed thrilling & suspenseful moments that brought me to the edge of my seat and a buildup to a wonderful romance. Sawyer Bennett, thank you for another awesome story and emotional rollercoaster ride. I listened to the audio edition, Joe Arden and Andi Arndt are fantastic narrators and voice artists. They bring these characters to life, giving each their own unique voice and personality. They do a great job projecting the emotions of the characters and the drama of the story into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and always a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another wonderful listen🎧
  • Surprise. It’s smoking hot.

    I have adored every book of Sawyer Bennett’s! Seriously loved Legend. Loved how out the gate, it started with a bang. No slow build. No slow burn. Legend has been so annoyed with his neighbor Pepper. When he finds a special delivery on his porch, he panics and enlists Pepper’s help. This book has sweetness, enemies to lover, neighbor drama and surprise single dad status. And some suspense! I highly recommend. PS: I want tracker and Dax’s story, like now!
  • Legend

    By EOBTripletMom
    Oh my. I just loved Legend and Pepper’s story. From enemies to lovers, Pepper and Legend sure know how to heat up the pages. Legend takes his surprise in stride and Pepper goes along for the ride. I was on the edge of my seat, for sure, at the end. You’ll not want to miss a moment of the Arizona Vengeance guys. 5 stars!!!

    I will admit I have enjoyed this series so far but I feel it doesn't have as much angst and adventure as the Cold Fury series has. Until now. I'm having a difficult time categorizing this book. Most would say it's Enemies-to-Lovers, but it's also single-dad/nanny, kinda. Pepper is not the nanny, but she is the person Legend depends on when it comes to his new daughter. We knew after reading Erik that these two would be explosive once they got over their "hatred", but the minute Legend finds a bundle of joy on his doorstep all is forgotten and forgiven. Yes there is mention of their disagreements in the past, but it's as if it was never a problem, yet we know it was a major problem for him. I truly enjoyed catching up, however briefly, with Erik and Blue and Bishop and Brooke and seeing their relationships progress. I can't wait to see more of each of these couples in future books.
  • Want more!

    By Heather San
    Saywer continues to find a way to keep this series fresh and unique with each book. I was up well beyond midnight reading and honestly would of stayed up later if I did not have somewhere to be in the morning. Dialogue is so important for me, I always want to read stories with characters that say things that make sense and flow with the storyline. Which is what you get here. Excited for more!
  • Best Vengeance yet

    Another 5 star hockey read from Sawyer Bennett. Was anxiously awaiting Legend and Pepper’s story and it was worth the wait. A great storyline and characters make for a fantastic read. No one writes steamy sports romance like Sawyer Bennett!
  • Perfectly Perfect

    By Agent$$$$
    Upon returning home from a late night of hockey, Legend is immediately bombarded with what looks like National Lampoons Christmas Vacation decorations. While Legend thinks his next door neighbor is extremely “hot”, he can’t stand her yard trash. He’s exasperated, but can’t turn her into the HOA because he lost a bet-no complaining. So he parks his car for the evening, but sees something on his porch. As he approaches and looks under the blankets, he realizes someone’s left a crying baby on his porch. Not knowing what to do or even how to hold an infant, he backs away and runs to Pepper. Pepper, the whimsical artistic one in her family, is constantly leaving “surprises” for Legend-just to irritate him. When he knocks on her door, she assumes it’s to complain about her yard decorations. Then he drags her over to his house, to the crying baby. Pepper immediately picks the little girl up while Legend calls the police. They find a note in the infant seat claiming it's Legend’s baby. Until paternity is determined, the infant is taken to a foster home. I know I said this on the last Arizona Vengeance novel, but I think this novel was the best one yet! Sawyer Bennett is a genius in weaving a believable storyline with characters who you normally wouldn’t think mesh, but are so right for each other in every way! Pepper is carefree, bright, and colorful. Legend is focused, strict, and “bland”. It’s amazing how much more “alive, colorful” Legend’s life becomes with Charlie and Pepper. Although this novel is the third in the series and can be read as a stand-alone, I recommend reading them in order so you get the “whole” picture. You also don’t necessarily have to be a huge hockey fan in order to read this novel. While Legend is a highly successful NHL player, it’s not the focus of the story. I loved Pepper and Legend’s friendship. They are hilarious together and so complimentary to each other. A perfect match! The suspense and baby mama drama had me on the edge of my seat! Throw in an adorable baby girl....all the feels! I highly recommend this novel. I received a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
