Publisher's Summary

In a league full of troublemakers, Cold Fury defenseman Roman Sýkora stands out - at least when it comes to negative publicity. When he's not chilling in the penalty box, the sizzling Czech skate demon is racking up tabloid headlines for his scandalous behavior with the ladies. But now Roman's feeling the burn from management to clean up his act, or else. Luckily he's got an enticing distraction: a fun-loving barista who plays the ukulele and brings out a side of Roman he didn't know he had.

Lexi Robertson came to Raleigh, North Carolina, to finally meet her father, Brian Brannon, and her half sister, Gray, both of whom work in the Cold Fury's front office. That's where she first meets sexy, intimidating Roman - who's really a big softie at heart. As one relationship takes off, another begins: Brian seems to be clicking with Lexi's boss at the coffeeshop. But when the friction between Roman and her new family heats up, Lexi wonders whether she's a pawn in their game. Feeling hurt and foolish, Lexi's ready to quit while she's ahead. Trouble is, Roman's not ready to quit on her.

Loved Roman!

Any additional comments?


Another great instalment in Sawyer Bennett's Cold Fury series! I have read these books out of order and it hasn't hampered my enjoyment of them at all! ROMAN is fun, sexy and light on the angst which was exactly what I was after. I loved the instantaneous connection between the bad boy Roman and free spirited Lexi.

I enjoyed the storyline of Brian and Georgia as well as the development of the newfound family bond between Lexi and the Brannons.

Overall, this was a highly entertaining audio listen although my only complaint was that the male narrator for Roman didn't emulate the Czech accent at all, whereas the female narrator did when Lexi interacted with Roman.

Unapologetic Bad Boy on Ice

Roman is so bad that he's good -- truly another ice hockey god. And definitely good for the sweet and charming Lexie. The special treat of this book is that it's two love stories in one book. The Brannons are an endearing family and they find a way to pass that sense of family throughout the Cold Fury team. I love that these relationships are so entwined with the team and team politics. Sawyer Bennett has written another hit in this series.

The narrators were good but Graham Halstead did not speak Roman's voice with an accent. I really wanted to hear the accent.

Definitely worth a credit. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

loved this book

By far my favorite book of the series. Both of the narrator's did an excellent job on this book. They captured the bad boy perfectly, and Lexie character had me laughing out loud more than once. Great overall story. I can't wait for Lucas.

Really fun!

I highly enjoyed this 7th book in the Cold Fury hockey series! Roman, the hero, is one of those players who is always making trouble for the team, whether it's fights or naked pics on Twitter. The heroine, Lexie, is the unknown daughter of Brian Brannon and sister to Gray Brannon. Gray is suspicious at first, but comes to accept that she has a sister. Roman meets Lexie on the day she comes to the team offices to try to meet her father, who she found out about just before her mother's death. He's instantly drawn toward her and the feeling is mutual. Things are complicated by Gray not having any liking or respect for Roman. It's entertaining to see how all these family shenanigans work out, because Brian meets Georgia (Lexie's boss) and they fall in love too. Great narration as always! I hope there are more books in this series!

Curve Ball tossed into the CCF Hockey Family

This story was full of surprises. Lexi’s first bombshell within the second chapter is just Wowzers, but it turns to be such a beautiful unsuspecting surprise. Also, I thoroughly loved the surprise of getting Brian Brennan’s POV at certain points throughout the story as he has a huge role when the story starts. The beautiful part of this story is that you see the development of two wonderful couples grow and develop along side with the men the two hero’s get out of their comfort zone to get their own HEA with two strong opinionated and independent women. It’s a must read and I would recommend listening to Ryker’s story before listening to this one to get a better perspective of some of the side characters that stay constant throughout the story. Ryker’s story is also just fantastic and he is a wonderful hero (literally and you’ll figure that out when you read or listen to his story). The narrators were great however the way Lexi’s voice kept being described I did not feel the female narrators voice went very well with how Lexi was described. She did a great job though overall. The male narrator was fantastic he was able to go from Czech slight accent to a regular American accent to distinguish Brian from Roman.

Over-explain much?

It’s the 7th book in this series, and the author has not grown as a writer! Who is this woman’s editor, and why can’t she understand the VERY BASIC skill of “showing,” not telling?” I like info, but this author makes the common mistake of expressing-and repeating- every single thought and motivation in the protagonists’ head. It slows the story down, it also feels condescending, as if we’ve forgotten something expressed just a few pages ago. Make no mistake: I really like these characters, and I like the storylines, but I wish Ms. Bennett would learn that Less is More. Give the reader some credit for knowing what’s going on.

Roman & Lexi

I am absolutely in awe of the Cold Fury Hockey Men. I have read all of the previous books and have enjoyed each one of them. Now Roman, he does what he wants, says what he wants and does not care if there is anyone who does not like him for it. Underneath it all he does have the capability to love. Lexi is there to meet her father Brian, and half sister Gray. She meets Roman while waiting for Brian, and Roman is instantly smitten with her. Lexi and Roman are amazing couple. Some would say they are perfect for one another. Sawyer Bennett is one of my favorite authors.
