Legend (Arizona Vengeance, Book #3)
Release Date: February 5, 2019
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.
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.
I have been enjoying this new series by Sawyer Bennett, Arizona Vengeance is following a new expansion hockey team which means we get to know each of the men as they get to know one another. If you have read the Cold Fury Hockey Series you'll enjoy the little peak of Ryker and Gray that we get in this story. Legend is an enemy to lovers story that has a surprise baby twist right at the start.
Legend really dislikes his neighbor Pepper as we have learned in prior books, it her over the top lawn decorations that really grates on his nerves, pink flamingos anyone??? But it's more than that, he just can't wrap his head around the fact that she's so quirky almost whimsical...I wouldn't call her flighty at all because she's not but she's definitely not the straight laced neighbor he wished she was, I think this has a lot to do with his childhood which we do learn about in this book.
Pepper may be everything Legend disliked but when he needed her help he was grateful that she didn't turn him away. Can you imagine coming home from work one night and finding a baby on your doorstep? Well, that is exactly what happened with Legend! I have to admit he handled things with a lot more grace than most men I know would.
While Legend adjust to being a single father Pepper helps him out when he requests and through all of this they grow closer. I have always believed in the saying "There's a fine line between love and hate" well lets just say that it was pretty easy to see that they were going to cross that line because they were great together.
The chemistry was amazing and the sexy times were a plenty but that wasn't all that was going on here. We have baby Charlie's mom to deal with, Dax's story was set up and it was done so with some tears shed, and lets not forget about my most anticipated story Tacker's OMG so much happened with him in this book my heart just kept breaking over and over again. I NEED TACKER'S STORY NOW!!! But I know I have to wait until after Dax's to get it....probably by the end of the year.
This story as well as the series is easy to recommend to lovers of contemporary romance and sports romance. If you are a lover of enemies-to-lovers or single dad stories I recommend you grabbing a copy of this book, you wont be disappointed. Happy Reading!!!
