REVIEW Hawke (Cold Fury Hockey #5) by Sawyer Bennett


Title: Hawke
Series: Cold Fury Hockey #5
Author: Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: 15 March, 2016
Rating: 3 stars
Cliffhanger:. No

The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team proves that love is a power play. As Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling series continues, the league’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.

Reading about sexy hockey players and their love lives is very… addicting. Cold Fury guys really turned me into obsessed fangirl. Following them and their shenanigans was always enjoyable and entertaining experience. New addition to the series, Hawke was of course no different. Sawyer Bennett delivered another cute story, and maybe it wasn’t the best of her work, but it still was an okay ‘I had fun’ read. It indeed left me with a big grin and red cheeks from all the sexiness so that’s a big win.

‘Hawke’ is a second-chance type of romance. It’s about two people who drifted apart only to find each other again. Hawke and Vale were a couple as teenagers, before Hawke left to play hockey professionally and Vale decided to break up with him. Due to her father’s fatal condition Vale moved and started working with Cold Fury’s team. After seven years Hawke and Vale’s paths collide…

"I wasn't the same.
She wasn't the same.
What we had was different now..."

To be completely honest – I was a little bit bored. Everything just fell short. The storyline was not very complex – it followed the same old trend so nothing really surprised me. No twists or turns that would grab a hold of my attention for more than a few minutes. And as much as I love reading second chance type of stories this one was just too simple and… easy.

On the other hand, it was still very sweet, sexy and nice. There were lots of swoony, heart racing moments and dirty talk. The hero was like a dream come true and in the end I found myself liking Vale. So it was not bad read, just not overly spectacular. I will still be following the series.

Summing up, Hawke while not my favorite in Cold Fury series, still held much appeal. Fans of Cold Fury team and the girls will definitely like it!
