Publisher's Summary

Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he's playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who's exactly his type: confident, sexy, and smart. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don't normally get to see.

Olivia has been keeping a secret. She's undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn't have time for a relationship with no guarantees - especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won't take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can't help falling for him...hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything - but you can't score without taking the tough shots.

This is a good listen! Really. Listen to it!

When I first started listening, I stopped at the 2nd chapter. Garrett was such a jerk and CANCER!! No, I read and/or listen to books to get a BREAK from those kind of things!! Today I started from the first again. I should have kept listening the first time. I know it was about where I was at the time. I delayed hearing a really...well sweet story. It is. This story about a jerk and cancer ends up being a sweet, feel good story. It ended and I smiled. Listen to it. That's what I recommend. :) Great voices to listen to by the performers, BTW.

Emotional book!

I really enjoyed this audiobook, the second in the Cold Fury hockey series! The hero, Garrett, is a womanizing player who never dates and only 'hooks up' for the night-never the same girl twice. He had quite a reputation in that he's kind of a manwhore about town. He meets the heroine, Olivia, at a postgame party and hits on her and gets turned down. Unused to this he becomes intrigued by her and he finds out she is Alex's wife Sutton's (book 1) cousin and declared off limits by them. The next day Garrett goes to her workplace to invite her out again and she finally says yes. However, she is keeping a huge thing secret and decides to be with him as a one time thing- as sort of living life to its fullest. The one night becomes many and they fall in love, much to the astonishment of the team. Then Olivia's secret becomes hard to hide and Garrett finds out. She decides that not being together is what's best for him. He has to convince her they belong together. I liked the epilogue very much!

Ahh...Garrett

Totally in love with this story. Nothing says I'm a good man than one that stays with you when you re sick. Once again, the chemistry between Cris and Graham is fantastic. Loved every second!

Love Sawyer Bennett and her writing style

This is a great love story. The narrator was very good. I think the topic of standing by someone who is fighting a serious illness is awesome.

SWEET STORY

Wouldn't life be great if everyone had a Garrett to love them through the rough stuff? Although the story has a more serious undertone, it's a sweet love story, with humor and leaves you feeling hopeful. The series has been good so far. I recommend it for hopeless romantics for sure.

I really wanted to like this book ....

I wanted to like this book. It begins with the playboy who will sleep with anything in a skirt who finds himself ago attracted to the cousin of one of his team mates wives. She also happens to be ill and decides to live life to the fullest. Of course Garrett does not know she is ill .... the predictable he falls in love with her and is going to stand by her blah blah blah. I did not finish this book! This book just was not for me.

Garrett and Olivia

Just when Olivia is given the worst news of her life, the meets Garrett who shines a little light into her darkness. Garrett, who's happy with is single lifestyle is swept away by the Olivia's quiet but stunning force. But is their attraction enough to bypass the tumultuous battle ahead? This book was a teary-eyed love story. Well written and full of emotion, you can feel Garrett's outlook and life's desires change. And you can see how his relentless pursuit touches Olivia to the point of overwhelming heartbreak (but in a sweet way). The narration for this audiobook - performed by Cris Dukehart and Graham Halstead - was entertaining and fit the characters well.

More “showing,” less “telling.”

I really think Sawyer Bennett is gifted! My only problem is the over-wordy internal dialogue, which “tells” too much, doesn’t let the reader come to his/her own conclusions. Sometimes, thoughts get repeated up to three times within a page or two and such thorough explanations of what the character is thinking/feeling bogs down the story and slows it down. IMHO? Get rid of 1/3 of the “telling” and it will tighten up nicely. That’s something the editor should have caught, and it’s a shame, because I really do like this series.
