** ALL books in the Cold Fury Series can be read as standalones

The New York Times bestselling hockey series featuring the Carolina Cold Fury continues as the team’s most notorious party animal gets blindsided by the one that got away.

Off the ice, elite defenseman Hawke Therrien enjoys his fair share of booze and good times. And why shouldn’t he? He’s worked his way up from the minor leagues and made himself a star. The only thing Hawke misses from that life is the pierced, tattooed free spirit who broke his heart without so much as an explanation. She’s almost unrecognizable when she walks back into his life seven years later—except for the look in her eyes that feels like a punch to the gut.

Vale Campbell isn’t the same girl she was at twenty. As crazy as she was about Hawke, her reckless behavior and out-of-control drinking were starting to scare her. She had to clean up her act, and that would never happen with Hawke around. Cutting him loose was the hardest thing Vale ever had to do—until now. Because she’s still crazy about Hawke. And if he could ever learn to forgive her, they just might have a future together.


My Thoughts:

Hawke Therrien gets a blast from his past.  Vale Campbell has a new job that puts her in a man’s world.  How many people can have a second chance at a relationship?  And be able to work for the same company.  Maybe you love hockey romances and maybe you don’t.  If you don’t, this book just may change your mind on that.

Now this author could leave the story where these two reconnect but she goes a step further and includes family.  Our author shows how sometimes our decisions are based on life’s responsibilities – and I know that from personal experience.  We also have to learn to move on.  We need to leave the past in the past – if we keep bringing it up it can ruin what we are trying to do in the present or even the future.

Vale had a reputation as a party girl but she shows that you can turn your life around.  Hawke feeds our conception of how a hockey player acts.  But if he didn’t act the way he does it might have changed how their new relationship evolves.  Currently hockey is being played so if you have the chance why not catch a game to give you some idea of what his profession is like.  Watching it on TV is not the same kind of experience if you were there live.

If you’re thinking road trip, you may want to check out the area where Hawke was as a teenager.  Now sometimes they play organ music as the hockey game progresses so you may just want to put on your music of choice.  This is a very hard book to put down so make sure you don’t have any plans once you pick this up.  I hope you liked this book as much as I did.  The author’s web site doesn’t say what the next book in the series is but because this is a stand-alone you can always go back and read the previous four books.  If you go out to GoodReads, you will find the name of the next book but not when it will be coming out.  I can’t wait!
