Review - Max by Sawyer Bennett


The ice is a cold mistress. As the league’s most eligible goalie, Max Fournier has access to his fair share of willing puck bunnies, but right now he’s more interested in bringing home another championship than a one-night stand. A romantic at heart, Max believes in love; he’s just not great at relationships. So when he finally meets a nice girl who’s not blinded by his celebrity, he’s feeling the heat—and the pressure to save her from herself.

Between working two jobs and raising her sister’s kids, Julianne Bradley doesn’t have time for sports—or men. All she knows about Max is that he’s the sexiest customer to ever grace her gas-station counter. And he sees past her tired eyes and makes Jules yearn for things she can’t have: a glamorous fling, a passionate lover, and the time to enjoy both. Max makes her feel like Cinderella, even though Jules has enough baggage to crush a glass slipper. Luckily, he’s no prince—only a fierce competitor determined to win her heart.

My 5 Star Review

The Cold Fury series by Sawyer Bennett is one of my favorite series. I love these guys so much and hope that we continue to get more books featuring new players. 

Max is the starting goalie for the Carolina Fury, so newer to the series, but I quickly fell in love with this down to earth, selfless guy. He meets our heroine while she is working at a convenient store. He thinks Julianne is beautiful and is about to ask her out when three little children spill out of the breakroom. Not sure what to expect he moves on, but doesn’t forget her. When fate lines these two up again to see each other Max is persistent. 

I loved this book for so many reasons, but one of my favorite types of books are single parents. Julianne is now the legal guardian to her three nieces and nephews since their mother died. She has little resources due to the added expense of three kids and little time, but Max wants a shot. I love how Max moved all obstacles for Julianne and accepted her even with all her baggage. 

Love is never easy and their story is isn’t an expectation, if anything it’s harder. However, these obstacles allowed me to really feel the connection between Max and Julianne. Their love was selfless and unconditional and I really just loved them together. This is by far one of my favorites in the series. Each book features a different player and their love interest so they can be read as stand alone but I recommend them all!
