Coen (Pittsburgh Titans, #4) by Sawyer Bennett ~ Book Review with Excerpt


Coen: A Pittsburgh Titans Novel
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: September 27, 2022


Read the first THREE chapters of Coen

Coen Highsmith was a league star, but he lost more than his team the day the Pittsburgh Titans’ plane crashed. Can he be saved from his downward spiral of guilt and regret to become the man he once was?

I had it all—a successful hockey career, the respect and adoration of the fans, a rotation of beautiful women warming my bed, and a feeling of self-worth and contentment with the direction of my life. But that all changed the day the team plane went down, taking my only chance of redemption with it. Now I’m left with the daily reminder of all my failures and my inability to correct them.

My new teammates are tired of my attitude and following my suspension, I hole up in a mountain cabin to get away from all of it. The isolation is exactly what I need to get out of my own head, and I’m beginning to think I could be content in this quiet forever.

Tillie Marshall isn’t the type of woman who would usually catch my attention, yet she manages to do so for all the wrong reasons. I’m here for the peace and seclusion but the quirky artist is hell-bent on destroying that by cutting down the trees that separate our properties so she can open a pottery studio. If it’s a fight she wants, it’s a fight she’ll get. I have the money and the time and no issues bringing her down through the court system. While I see flashes of steely determination within her, I’ve found that being a jerk comes naturally these days and she won’t be hard to intimidate.

Unfortunately, that gorgeous and somewhat odd neighbor who has been causing me grief is creating another type of feeling within me. And once that spark is lit, Tillie displays a faith in me that for the first time since the crash I desperately want to believe. Now it’s time for me to step up and become the man—no, a better man than I once was.

There is just something about this series that has me under it's spell, each one of the stories is more compelling then the next and if it keeps going in this direction I am going to be a total wreck by the end of the series.

In this story we have Coen, one of the "THREE LUCKY ONES," he wasn't on the plane that crashed and killed the entire Pittsburgh Titans Hockey team, most of the coaching staff, as well as the owner, a few months ago. Suffering from Survivors guilt and other things Coen has become the "Bad Boy" in hockey and finds himself in trouble both on and off the ice more times then not so it's no surprise when he was suspended for multiple games. What is surprising is that he's willing to throw in the towel and leave the sport he loved so much.

At the end of GAGE'S book, Stone offer's Coen his brother's cabin in a small town to get away and take his time to regroup and hopefully come to figure things out and come back after his suspension as the Coen he was before the accident. No one, least of all Coen, expected he'd find love there.

Tilden "Tillie" Marshall is grieving the loss of her parents but she is determined to put their life insurance to good use by opening an art studio so she can teach anyone that is interested in learning how to paint and have special classes for different types of art that her mother did as well. The only thing standing in her way is her cranky new neighbor that has put an injunction on the removal of trees from the easements preventing her from starting her build.

I really enjoyed this Grumpy/sunshine Romance, the chemistry between Coen and Tille was great and the way he defended her when she was being bullied was swoon worthy.

If you enjoy Steamy New Adult Contemporary Romances, Sports Romances, or Enemies-to-Lovers Romances I highly recommend this book to you.

Happy Reading!!!
