Bishop: An Arizona Vengeance Novel
Release Date: August 14, 2018
4 Steamy CROWNS
Sawyer Bennett writes it all: contemporary romance, sports romance, suspense romance, etc. No matter what she writes, you know what is always the same? How freaking HOT it is always is. I can always count her to deliver a fun read and that steamy, especially when it comes to her hockey players.
Bishop Scott is the perfect athletic hero. Stamina for days. Killer body. Heart of Gold. Treats his lady right. Sounds like perfection, right? He kind of is. Where your traditional hero would make some errors with the heroine or even the antagonist of the story, Bishop doesn’t. He is kind of the dream.
Brooke is a lovely heroine. At times she is a bit a pushover, forgiving easily and wanting to believe the best in people, which isn’t necessarily a bad attribute to have. This characteristic doesn’t come into play for the hero and heroine, but it does open the door to the conflicts of the story.
The chemistry between these two in the bedroom is smoking, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from Sawyer Bennett. I also enjoyed Bishop’s and Brooke’s dynamic outside of the bedroom as well. It seemed authentic and genuine, and readers will feel that they really do like each other. The conflict is alluded to withing the story and not really unexpected, but I have conflicting feelings about the resolution. While it was handled with the maturity of adults, it is resolved very quickly, making the pacing of the falling action and resolution to be very fast. I would have liked to be drawn out a bit more, something worthy of the build up and explosion of the climax.
Overall, I really enjoyed the new spin-off series from Sawyer Bennett. It is steamy and fun, and readers are introduced to a whole new world of hockey players. I am already needing more stories for Dax, Erik, and Tacker, so I hope Sawyer Bennett is busy writing. She has me hook, line, and sinker.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
Meet the Arizona Vengeance, hockey’s hottest new team. They’re burning up the ice—until a one-night-stand with the coach’s daughter freezes one player in his skates.
Bishop Scott, co-captain. Not too shabby, huh? It’s all part of my fresh start with the NHL’s latest expansion team, and that means new teammates, a new coach, a new city, and a big new contract. Basically, I cannot f***ing wait to show my old squad what they’re missing.
But first, I decide to check out the town before the grind begins. Turns out Arizona chicks are totally smokin’, and I’m fortunate enough to meet one who’s looking for the same thing I am: a night of anonymous, unforgettable, no-strings-attached sex.
Fast forward to the Vengeance arena. It’s the last place I expect to see her again—let alone in her own office. Then bells go off and I finally realize who this girl is: Brooke Perron. My new coach’s daughter. All of a sudden, we’re picking up right where we left off, which means our hands are all over each other. That’s when her dad—my boss—walks in. And before I can get a word out, Brooke’s introducing me as her fiancé.
Sure, she just saved my ass. So why do I get the feeling Brooke’s going to turn my world upside down? Maybe it’s because this fake relationship feels way too real. . . .

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.
