Release Blitz & Review: Reed

Reed (Cold Fury, Book #10)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: February 6, 2018

Hockey season may be over, but in New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett’s new novel, a Carolina Cold Fury heartbreaker is heating things up off the ice and eager to score with the girl next door.

No one skates like Reed Olson. In the off-season, no one plays like him either. After back-to-back championships, Reed craves a different kind of action. Good thing there’s no shortage of women ready for a summer fling with a sports star. Reed has a specific type—blond, busty, not too bright—and a little black book full of options. But when his bed starts rocking, it’s his unexpectedly sexy neighbor who comes knocking. And the brainy beauty is impossible to ignore.

Josie Ives desperately needs something her celebrity neighbor obviously doesn’t: sleep. His headboard banging against the wall is keeping her up at night—not to mention inspiring some very naughty dreams. Reed is everything she imagined: a little too good-looking, with a body that puts Greek gods to shame. But he’s also funny and charming—a tempting combination. Josie’s the opposite of his type, yet the chemistry between them is undeniable. Their friendship certainly has its benefits, and it’s heating up to be so much more.

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

This is the 10th book in the Cold Fury series. There have been good and better books, but overall, great hockey club and great writing by this author. This one is about Reed. The Cold Fury have just won the cup and he is gearing up for a summer off with as much meaningless sex as he can muster. During one of his late night headboard banging sessions, his neighbor comes over to say she is not impressed. However, Reed is intrigued with her.

Josie is a busy ER doctor. She has no time for any social life. Although she is not like his "barbies", Reed works his way in under her skin and becomes one of her close friends. And then there becomes more. Both Reed and Josie are out of their elements with this new twist in their friendship.

This book is not a hockey book but it is so much more! Classic Sawyer Bennett writing. As much as I love sports romance, I am so very ok with the way this book played out. Hockey is int he background and spurs some of Reed's actions but it is really a great love story. Wonderful humor and sensitive romantic moments. Loved it all the way around!

I always want to read more from this author. Great twist in the story for Reed's friend Marek--Can't wait for his story!

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.
