    FOUR FURY HOCKEY STARS "The contact is so explosive, so richly captivating, that I immediately feel like I'm drowning in a sea of desire." At the risk of sounding like I'm repeating myself, once again I have to express the fact that nothing attracts me more to a book than the words 'sports related and romance' in the same sentence. Sawyer Bennett blew me away with her romantic story telling and I can tell you right from the start that although th...

    4 'MVP' stars!!!I’ve been told many times I need to read Sawyer Bennett, that I would love her stuff. Finally, I did it. Read my first book by this author. I have to say- I really enjoyed it. I’m not a sports fan. Not even a little… but for some reason, I like books about hockey players. There is just something about them. Alex is one of those guys thats a straight up bastard- and you know those are my favorite kind!!!Alex Crossman is good ...

    5 honest stars...painfully so I love reading sport themed books, especially about hockey. I'm a proud puck lover:) And I really enjoyed reading this one. There was not unnecessary drama, there were hot steamy sex scenes and finally there were wonderful charachters. Alex, named MVP - Most Valuable Prick, is an incredible hockey player, too bad he doesn't give a shit about a game, his team and fans. To fix his and team's reputation, Cold Fury's ma...

    3 stars!After reading two very intense and powerfully gripping books, I turned to this book as it seemed like a light and straight-forward read, something I was in the mood for. I guess I shouldn’t judge a book by its hot cover because it wasn’t just all fun and steamy. Behind Alex’s cold indifference and Sutton’s bubbly enthusiasm lie issues that are common in many households: abuse and alcoholism. I deeply admire the author for tackling...

    *****4.5 STARS*****(ARC Kindly Provided by Random House Publishing Group via Netgalley){BR with Mel and Dee} This was my first time reading a book written by Sawyer Bennett, and I can honestly say that I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series, plus all over her other works!!

    ★4.5★ "No story. Love playing hockey, love fucking women, love spending my money. I'm a pretty simple guy." Alex is the first book in the Cold Fury Hockey Series. Each book can be read as a stand-alone. If you are a fan of hockey romance, this series is one blockbuster hit you do not want to miss. Alex is the bad boy of hockey. Although he is a superstar on the ice, he is quite the player with the women. Due to his bad image, Alex is forced t...

    **3.75 HOT COVER stars**Wow, when I saw that cover I knew I wanted to read ALEX. The MVP (Most Valuable Player Prick), Alex, is not a well-liked player or person. He may be Mr. Hockey Hottie but he's not winning points with fans or teammates. His attitude stems from his childhood with a drunk father. This lack of love for the game and his poor attitude has his coach wanting him to clean up his act. Forced to work on a project to better his image ...

    4--Cold Fury--Stars!!I actually really liked this one. I love sports themed books. I can't say this one was wowing or anything out of the box but I still enjoyed it nonetheless. Neither of the main charactes were annoying and stupid....there wasn't a bunch of dumb drama....and there was some good steam.Alex Crossman is a star hockey player in the NHL. He's the MVP of hockey....the Most Valuable Prick. He's an asshole. An asshole who has let his p...

    LIVE 4 Most Valuable Prick StarsAlexander Crosssman is the Most Valuable Player for the Cold Fury, but he is also the biggest Prick in the league. While this persona would bother most, Alex relishes it. He hates the game and everything it involves, he would quit tomorrow if had another plan, but he doesn’t. He is stuck and being stuck makes him hate it even more. That is until the owner threatens to begi...

    3.5 most valuable prick STARS “Seems some hot hockey player has my attention now.”“Yeah? That's ironic, because I'm sort of lusting after this hot drug counselor I met.”“Sounds like a match made in heaven.” Alex was my very first read by Sawyer Bennett and while I enjoyed this story quite a lot it wasn't something that blew me away. But please don't let that keep you from reading this one, it's just a classic case of it's me not you...

    3.5 stars!I would have rated it higher had Alex's sudden change of heart been convincing, but it was too unbelievable. I would've let it go but I found myself getting bored halfway through the book, which doesn't bode well for me. But mostly, it was just the way Alex suddenly turned from most valuable prick to saint in an instant. I didn't mind that he changed because he met the right girl but his transformation from being a heartless bastard to ...

I couldn't resist to that photo!!!)I don't think you are having problem with that, right????When i started reading Alex, i thought that this book was like all the others with hockey players, but i was so bloody wrong!!!

    Sawyer Bennett writes a beautiful, inspiring, sweet and sexy book. It addresses sad and real subjects such as abuse and addiction from two different perspectives, one drowned in the wretched effects of it and one giving hope that the past is not our jailer. "Life is about overcoming struggles and opening yourself up to possibility." Alex, a self-proclaimed loner, asshole and star hockey player was given a choice, play nice or don’t play at all....
  • Ilze
    This book took me by surprise and I was quickly sucked into the story. Alex, the most valuable prick drew me into the book, but Sutton's strength and personality definitely kept me reading! I really enjoyed it ♥The story is about Alex and Sutton, two people who have to work together for a project that helps kids with drug addictions. Alex have to be a spokesperson for the project because of his bad attitude on the hockey field and off of it. He...

    This is book one of what promises to be a really good series. I usually have to be in the mood for a book about sports, and the mood doesn't strike me too often. I did however enjoy "Alex" written by Sawyer Bennett. There was so much more to this story than a guy who is rich and famous, and who plays for the Cold Fury hockey team. This is a story about how two people who come from very troubled pasts, rise above their trauma and create a present ...

    *****4.5 Cold Fury Stars****(Arc kindly provided by Netgalley)(BR with Mel and Patty)Alex is an utterly delicious, yet very compelling story and I got swept away by this novel the minute I started reading it.Alexander Crossman (super sexy name, by the way) is very successful hockey player, he has a reputation for being the best at his game but also as a cold hearted, mean player who's insensitive to everything and everyone. He never interacts wit...

    4 StarsA perfect blend of fun, flirtation, angst and heat - with a touch of seriousness and some sweetness mixed in for good measure. This book was a perfect read for the mood I was in ... wanting something not too heavy or over the top emotional, but not too silly or cheesy either. Meet Alex Crossman. He's a professional hockey player. He's been voted MVP. But for this story MVP stands for Most Valuable Prick. That's right ladies & gentleman ......

    I don't have much to say about this book. I just couldn't get into it. I didn't like the two love interests. Nothing really stood out to me. It was boring to be honest. I'm rating this book 3 stars as in okay. This read was definitely lacking something I'm just not sure what they are. I will read another book in this series and hopefully it will be better than this.

    4 Surprisingly Good Stars”I should let her go…right now, right this very minute. But I’m a selfish bastard and I’m not going to do it. I’m going to keep her until I’m ready to destroy her, and then I’ll just add to the pile of guilt I’m already suffering under.”I should start by saying my expectations for this book were kind of low based on what my goodreads friends were rating this. It seemed most of them liked it but still fel...

    3 stars     Hockey player Alex the ass has been assigned to a drugs awareness program. With the help of social worker Sutton would he be able to let go of his anger? I liked Sutton, she was a pretty good heroine. The insta lust I could just about look past but Alex though, I felt like he was all talk about being a douche but it didnt really come across.I liked it enough to finish the book and the steam was good. Overall was an okay read nothi...

    I was so excited to read this book, but unfortunately I didn't buy the love story. I didn't like Alex and during the end I found the heroine weak and just couldn't connect .. The way he acted and his 'reason' for his decision didn't set well with me and during the last part all I did was roll my eyes. I didn't like his inner monologue about her either. I couldn't feel he had real feelings for her. The things he thought made me gag. He was an ass....
