Legend (Arizona Vengeance, Book #3)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: February 5, 2019
Rating:  4.5 Stars
Told in the first person.  Alternating persons.


The Arizona Vengeance is hockey’s hottest new team. But hockey’s hottest goalie is learning that even the best players sometimes need an assist.

Everything is clicking for the Vengeance. We may be new, but we’re well on our way to winning the championship, and I’m having the time of my life headlining the sports media as the hottest goalie—hell, player—ever. I for one am going to live up to my name . . . because I am Legend Bay.

Dragging my ass home from the gym, I’m blinded by some gaudy, glowing holiday lights. As usual, my hot-as-hell neighbor Pepper Nantais has gone way over the top. But just as I’m about to tell her off, something else catches my eye . . . Seems like Santa left me a present, and not one I was expecting.

As life takes an unexpected turn, I realize that there’s much more to Pepper than meets the eye. Sure, she’s gorgeous. And exasperating. And her taste in decorating may be a bit . . . unique.

But beneath her carefree demeanor is a fierce determination and a heart of gold. And before I know it I’ve fallen for her. Hard . . .

Pepper is exactly the woman I never knew I needed.

My Thoughts:

Legend Bay has a tiny package that he’s stunned by.  His story humanizes the hockey player.  Our author shows how they go through the same trials and tribulations just like everyone else.  Pepper Nantais likes to stay true to herself.  She shows how sometimes you can count on a neighbor being there to lend a helping hand.

I watch some of the shows on HGTV and it’s interesting to see how many people want no neighbors.  What happens when an emergency or the unexpected happens?  Having an extra pair of hands can come in handy and can also help to take some of the pressure off your shoulders.  Having someone close by, no matter how quirky, can be a good thing.

This story quickly became very addictive.  Give me a sexy hunk, a woman who dances to her own tune, and a little sweetie and I’m glued to my comfortable chair.  I’d say to set the mood by going to a hockey game but in this case, I say stay at home because you won’t want to be distracted for even one second.  You’ll not realize how quickly this story moves along and that just shows how deeply you’ve gotten sucked into what’s going on.

I didn’t even mind the twist that almost stopped me in my tracks.  But Legend and Pepper make a great team so I know everything will be all right.  Our author has created a situation that could really tear at your heart.  But instead of bringing her readers down, she turns it around and will get you to chuckle.  At one point, you may even need a tissue – which just shows how realistic this story seems.

We meet a couple of Legend’s teammates that seem to have reoccurring appearances.  Both of them had me questioning which of their stories will be next.  Tacker spoke the loudest to me.   He seems to be crying out for help.  But he doesn’t take my attention away from what’s really going on with our main characters or from the very romantic ending.  Now I just have to wait to see if I’m right or will our author just surprise me once again. 

About the Author:

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.
