Synopsis: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?

ERIK was deeper read then I was expecting, I know that Sawyer Bennett dives into subjects that touch our hearts but this one was pulling at everyone of my heartstrings and had me balling like a baby. Erik comes off as a fun loving playboy but believe me when I tell you this man has a heart of gold, especially when it comes to Blue.
Blue was everything I expected from what I had seen from her in BISHOP. She is strong willed and doesn't take shit from anyone least of all Erik and we find out exactly why that is...and I must admit I didn't see that one coming. I loved her softer side as well and the way she was with her brother, Billy, was just beautiful.
ERIK is the second book in the Arizona Vengeance Series and can easily be read as a standalone but I can just about guarantee once you meet one of the team players you'll want to read about each of them. Up next is LEGEND but I am still patiently waiting for Tacker's story, we find out more about him in this book and I know without a shadow of a doubt I will be going through a box of tissues when I get my hands on his book. This book is easy to recommend to just about everyone, if you enjoy contemporary romance or if you enjoy sports romance this book is for you and if you enjoy the second-chance trope I would recommend this book to you as well. Happy Reading!!!
