Reed (Cold Fury, Book #10)
Release Date: February 6, 2018
Sawyer Bennett is one of my favorite authors. I one-click everything she writes. I get lost her worlds of suspense, angst, and heat, but REED just didn’t hit the mark for me. It lacked the angst and drama and even spice I’ve come to expect and LOVE from this author.
Reed is absolutely adorable. His vibrancy for life is contagious, and, even as a reader, you can’t help but catch his mood. Josie is also a great heroine: easy going, smart, and witty. Their chemistry is great and light. There really is nothing wrong then as characters or a couple.
Reed’s story is sweet, maybe too sweet. I missed the angst and drama of the Cold Fury books of the past. I needed a bigger, more substantial conflict, something to test this couple. I was, in fact, more drawn to the plot of Marek, and the storyline that Bennett has set up with his appearance in the novel.
Reed was a miss for me, but the writing is still fantastic with lovable characters and light romance. I just found myself putting the book down instead of being consumed as I normally am by her words. I am still, though, looking forward to Marek, as that seems to be promising in the drama department.

Hockey season may be over, but in New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett’s new novel, a Carolina Cold Fury heartbreaker is heating things up off the ice and eager to score with the girl next door.
No one skates like Reed Olson. In the off-season, no one plays like him either. After back-to-back championships, Reed craves a different kind of action. Good thing there’s no shortage of women ready for a summer fling with a sports star. Reed has a specific type—blond, busty, not too bright—and a little black book full of options. But when his bed starts rocking, it’s his unexpectedly sexy neighbor who comes knocking. And the brainy beauty is impossible to ignore.
Josie Ives desperately needs something her celebrity neighbor obviously doesn’t: sleep. His headboard banging against the wall is keeping her up at night—not to mention inspiring some very naughty dreams. Reed is everything she imagined: a little too good-looking, with a body that puts Greek gods to shame. But he’s also funny and charming—a tempting combination. Josie’s the opposite of his type, yet the chemistry between them is undeniable. Their friendship certainly has its benefits, and it’s heating up to be so much more.
Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

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.
