Hawke (Carolina Cold Fury Hockey #5) by Sawyer Bennett from Loveswept: Release Blitz with Review

Title: Hawke
Series: Carolina Cold Fury Hockey #5 
Author: Sawyer Bennett
Publisher: Loveswept
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 15, 2016
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 Review:  I am a big fan of Sawyer Bennett and her Cold Fury Hockey Series is one that I have thoroughly enjoyed.  Hawke is the latest installment in the series and Bennett once again delivers one hot, sexy, alpha male that her readers will fall in love with.  Hawke isn't perfect, but let's face it girls, a badass wouldn't be a badass if he was.  Hawke has a reputation for partying hard and knowing how to have a good time.  He's doen't do, nor is he interested in commitment, however, especially not after he was burned by the love of his life 7 years earlier.  He's pushed Vale Campbell out of his mind.....or at least he thought he had, until he sees her again, while at the same time finding out she's going to be working with the team.  

Vale Campbell is not the girl Hawke left behind 7 years ago by any means.  The rebel, the one who could party with the best of them, wild, free, and always up for anything is not the woman that stands before Hawke now.  While still just as beautiful and still Vale, she's responsible, educated, and well...professional.  For Vale, facing Hawke is much harder than she anticipated, especially when all those old feelings start to rise back up to the surface.  The more time these two spend together, the harder it is to deny their feelings and hold on to their anger, justifiable or not.  Then again, things aren't always as they seem.  When things begin to take a serious turn, will the past repeat itself, or will love find a way?

Hawke is a great addition to the Cold Fury Hockey Series and Sawyer Bennett definitely delivers the drama, the romance, and the steam in a story that contemporary romance fans, especially those who are fans of sports-themed romance, will most certainly enjoy.  Hawke is a companion novel and can easily be read as a standalone, but trust me, you'll want to meet all the other Hockey Hotties that Bennett has created in this series as well.
