Are you ready for Kane Bellan’s story?

I have a problem.

Potential problem?

I’m not really sure. Here’s the deal.

There’s this girl—isn’t that how it always starts?—and her name is Mollie. I like her. I mean really like her. I hope that doesn’t make me seem less manly than my professional hockey player persona implies. But here’s the issue—she’s my best friend. The one person I can count on for everything, who’s been there with me for all the moments, big and small.

When Mollie shows up at my door, travel weary and scared following an incident with an ex, my instinct to protect her goes into overdrive. It’s then that I know she’s more than just my best friend and the skates are swept out from under me when I find out she feels the same way.

Our transition from friends to lovers to potentially something more is seamless, the Arizona Vengeance is back on the ice looking for a repeat championship, and my life has never been better. Just when I think I’ve got it all figured out, the realities of us both having careers which keep us on the road put our blossoming relationship on ice.

It feels like the game just went into overtime and I’m on the verge of either the biggest win or most disappointing loss of my life. And losing is never an option.

    Not my favorite book especially in this series. I have read them all and enjoyed them all but this was too boring to finish. I don’t have a problem bringing back characters from the other 7 books in this series but introducing each character from each book along with a recap of their stories took away form the Kane and Molly’s story. It was dragged out not going anywhere to begin with but then the added summaries of each character made me lose interest in this book all together.
  • Great Read

    By AshleyHedden
    Kane (Arizona Vengeance, #8) was a great read by Sawyer Bennett. Mollie, Kane’s best friend, show’s up at his door exhausted and scared. She had an incident with her ex and needs someone to protect her. Although they are just friends, Kane will do anything to protect her. Kane is getting ready to start the new hockey season but they decide to start a relationship. I really enjoyed Kane and Mollie’s story and can’t wait to read more by Sawyer Bennett.
  • beautiful written friends to lovers romance

    Kane by Sawyer Bennett was a beautiful written friends to lovers romance. Mollie and Kane have such a special bond, it is clear to the reader their connection runs deep.... and that transition from friends to lovers burns off the pages. This story flows beautifully the way Mollie shows up on Kane's door and the how these two resolve two professionals with careers they adore pulled at my heart while sometimes wanting me to shake mostly Mollie.....so yes Bennett for me to feel! Kane's desire for Mollie, his embracing of his connection and deepening feeling to her often had me grinning from ear to ear as I am a sucker for hero who WANTS the heroine. The Vengeance cast of characters provided for a great read as it felt like coming home to me. Bennett's created a world rich with connections and often time hysterical banter. Mollie folds into this world, the way she is easily enveloped by the group speaks volumes to the authors ability to write and well the scenes with Kane and Jim Steele have been so excited for more! Yes if you can't tell, I adore the Arizona Vengeance Series and I am so excited for Steele next!
  • Sweet and sexy!

    A sexy friends to lovers romance. Kane and Molly’s chemistry was instant and hot. I enjoyed their sweet and low angst story and the cameos from another series. Jeremy York and Lessa Lamb’s narration was great and added an additional element to storyline.
  • Friends to lovers with steam

    By A5michael
    Where to start with this book.. it was such a great read and refreshing to have steam and love with little drama. Kane and Molly are such a sweet couple that made me wish I had a best friend to fall in love with. As with all of Sawyers books, I love getting characters from her other books that pop up for some fun. You will never regret reading this book!

    This is one of my favorites in this series. Although Legend will forever be my favorite Kane and Mollie are up there, plus friends to lovers are always a good trope. Seeing the chemistry and love grow was so great. I could not put this down and I am now waiting for Jim’s book. Sawyer Bennett has made this series one of the best.
  • Not up to par

  • Awesome read

    What do you do when your best friend needs help, why of course you take them in. Kane and Mollie have been friends for 10 yrs. Chemistry took a back burner and the friendship grew. Mollie runs to Kane because she’s in danger. They can no longer act like they don’t want more. In order to make this work, there are lots of obstacles to overcome. I love this story. You still get glimpses of the other teammates while centering on Kane and Mollie!
  • Overall, a fun story with a few intense moments.

    As a late season trade last season, Kane is not a well known Vengeance player. He came on the scene in the trade for Rafe from the Cold Fury and we know nothing about his past really. So when his best friend shows up on his door, it's a surprise to all that it's a woman. And I love her nickname (Noodle). Fast forward to why she shows up and both of their latent feelings and a storm is brewing between them. Will they act on their feelings or just remain best friends? Will acting on their feelings ruin their friendship? Everyone already thinks there's more between them, so why not see where it leads. Oh, yeah, and let's not forget about her stalker. I think my favorite part of the book is when Kane goes to visit Baden and he's talking about Mollie and Baden calls him out and actually smiles. It was good to see him engage with a teammate and not just stare out the window. I know there is more to his story, and I can't wait to find out, but until then seeing him interact with teammates is both sad but entertaining when he engages. I was glad to see Kane and him talk and bond. I also enjoyed watching the girls rally around Mollie and offer their support. Even though Kane is not on the first line, the ladies of the first line made her feel welcome and a member of their WAGs group. Overall, a fun story with a few intense moments.
