(Cold Fury, Book #8)
by Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: September 19, 2017
The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.
Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.
Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.
Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

Lucas and Stephanie's relationship is anything but typical, their upbringing was so different (which makes them the person they are today), you would wonder how they would ever work together but I guess the old adage "Opposites Attract" is really true.
Lucas is having the time of his life he's single, a key player on the Cold Fury Hockey Team, and can have any woman he wants in his bed with just a smile, but some of that changes after a one night stand with the beautiful Stephanie.
My heart broke every time Stephanie spoke about her parents and the couple of times she spoke with her mother I wanted to throw my kindle across the room. Neglect is a form of abuse, it may not leave physical scars that you can see but there are mental scars left and those scars will mold you into the person you become as an adult and for Stephanie the scars she has helped create the barrier she needs to keep her heart safe.
Lucas is the 8th book in the Cold Fury Hockey Series and while it can be read as a standalone I would recommend that you read the entire series starting with the first book.
