The Arizona Vengeance are developing a reputation on the ice as one of hockey’s top teams. But one player’s reputation off the ice might just keep him from scoring. . . .
I’m having the time of my life with my new brothers on the Arizona Vengeance. We may be an expansion team, but after notching some big wins, the entire league knows to watch out for Erik Dahlbeck. That’s me.
The only person who doesn’t seem to think I’m so great? Blue Gardner, the hot-as-f*** flight attendant on our team plane. I sure wouldn’t mind joining the mile-high club with her, but besides bringing me lukewarm coffee, she won’t give me the time of day. Whatever I did to rub Blue the wrong way, my teammates think it’s hilarious. After all, we’re used to women flocking to us. #puckbunnies
When I run into Blue back on land, I’m shocked to learn how she spends her time off: taking care of her handicapped brother. There are layers to this girl I never imagined, layers I can’t wait to peel away. And that’s a new feeling for me.
But first I’ve got to find a way to melt that ice-cold stare. Because as much as I try to pretend I don’t care what Blue thinks of me, how can you not care when you’re falling for someone?

The given name Eric, Erik, or Erick is derived from the Old Norse name Eiríkr (or Eríkr in Eastern Old Norse due to monophthongization). The first element, ei- is derived either from the older Proto-Norse *aina(z), meaning "one, alone, unique", as in the form Æinrikr explicitly, or from *aiwa(z) "everlasting, eternity". The second element -ríkr stems either from *ríks "king, ruler" (cf. Gothic reiks) or from the therefrom derived *ríkijaz "kingly, powerful, rich, prince". The name is thus usually taken to mean "sole ruler, autocrat" or "eternal ruler, ever powerful".The most common spelling in Scandinavia and the Netherlands is Erik. In Norway, another form of the name (which has kept the Old Norse diphthong) Eirik is also commonly used. In Finland, the form Erkki is also used. The modern Icelandic version is Eiríkur, while the modern Faroese version is Eirikur. Éric [eʁik] is used in French, and in Germany Eric, Erik and Erich are used.Although the name was in use in Anglo-Saxon England, its use was reinforced by Scandinavian settlers arriving before the Norman conquest of England. It was an uncommon name in England until the Middle Ages, when it gained popularity, and finally became a common name in the 19th century. This was partly because of the publishing of the novel Eric, or, Little by Little by Frederic Farrar in 1858. In Norway, Sweden and Finland, the name day for Erik and Eirik is 18 May, commemorating the death of Saint Eric IX of Sweden. The feminine derivative is Erica or Erika...
I adored this book, it was simply perfection within its pages! 55
There is always something so great about a second chance romance. This one though I really connected with. I loved that Erik didn't remember Blue and that she didn't put up with any stuff from him. He strived to show her how much he had changed and how much he wanted her and wanted to be a part of her life. This is another great hockey chain from Ms. Bennett. I love these hot hockey stories with cocky jocks who fall hard for their women. Another great read! 45
Erik and Blue were such a good story, I really enjoyed reading it. If you love hockey and love stories, this is one you don’t want to pass up! 45
Sawyer Bennett delivers another fabulous hockey romance. Erik is a swoon worthy and steamy story well worth the read. Another 5 star read! 55
How do you overcome a horrible first impression? Especially when you don't even remember it. That is exactly what Erik must accomplish with Blue. Blue has a mountain of responsibility on her shoulders and no where to turn for help. Enter Erik. It takes time but eventually Erik wins Blue over until a new tragedy hits. Will he be able to fix this lapse in judgement? Will Blue forgive him? And what is Tacker's connection to all of this? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for the next installment of The Arizona Vengeance. 55
Overall, Erik felt like a treat. A big delicious, romantic treat for the heart! I can’t stop swooning! I’m absolutely smitten with every little detail that makes up this story. Sawyer Bennett captured my heart with this one and I think this is one of her best book to date (which is saying a lot). Watching the professional hockey players and notorious playboy, Erik Dalhbeck mature into a open caring man, i was in book heaven. Every moment with Blue and Erik was an ultimate pleasure. I had belly flutters, little electric sparks zapping me as I read. There is such beauty in this love story, such decadent sweetness, filled with heart and heat. Seriously, this book is perfection. It’s filled with all the heat and humor I crave and all the heartwarming, heartbreaking emotion that I can’t get enough of. Through funny, witty banter, burning attraction and the upheaval of loss, this story kept me glued to my kindle. So what are you waiting for? Don’t pass this book by. Get your copy of this amazing book and get reading - you are in for a treat. There aren’t enough stars for this one. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 55
The storyline and development of Erik and Blue's relationship was interesting to read about, especially their little twist towards the beginning. Blue is caring and sweet, especially with her brother. I liked the Billy aspect of the story and found all of it very interesting. Erik really is a great guy. He's super sweet and patient with Blue and just wants her to be happy. I love everything he does for both her and Billy. I loved getting more about the other guys. I really want to know more about Tacker, he just seems so complex and intriguing. Legend's parts were very funny and I can't wait to see how his book is going to play out. 45
Arizona Vengeance’s enforcer ,Erik is known has a playboy so he’s having a hard time getting Blue,the beautiful flight attendant to give him a chance. Such feels!! Erik is one swoon worthy guy! I loved the way he was so taken with Blue and Billy. The story was beautiful and heartfelt,bringing so many emotions to the surface,especially the love between siblings. Sawyer Bennett did a incredible job of putting you right there with Blue,Billy and Erik. Can’t wait to discover more of the Arizona Vengeance! 55
It’s time for Erik and Blue’s book., Erik Arizona Vengeance book 2! I have been eagerly awaiting its arrival since the first book and the banter we witnessed between these two in that book. And I was not disappointed. Not at all! Erick Dahlbeck, the up and coming star for the Arizona Vengeance, feels an instant attraction to Blue, the Vengeance’s flight attendant. But Blue certainly doesn’t doesn’t feel the same about Erik. He has a well know reputation with the “ladies”. You can feel the chill in the air when she rebuffs him time and time again. As a matter of fact she seems a little hostile towards him. But this doesn’t stop him from pursuing her. Nope! It just makes him want to get under her skin even more. Blue Gardner has a big chip on her shoulder when it comes to Erik. She’s hurt fist and foremost when he doesn’t remember her from a previous meeting. And second she just doesn’t have time for him right now. She’s busy with more important things. She can’t loose focus on her responsibilities. And she knows all to well that Erik could definitely make her loose focus. When Erik stumbles upon Blue in her off time he finds out what her priority in life is at the moment and it makes Erik realize that she’s got a lot on her plate. After Erik gets a glimpse of her present situation Blue soon realizes she probably has misjudged Erik. But unfortunately she just isn’t in a good place to pursue the possibility of a relationship. Let alone one with the rising hockey star. Or will Erik be able to tear down her walls and show her that he’s in this for more than a fling? I really enjoyed this entertaining, emotional and steamy read. You definitely can’t go wrong with Erik and Blue. You will enjoy every moment as Erik and Blue find their way to their HEA. 55
I love love love when a man steps up in all the ways that count. Erik does just that in this book and it warms me from the inside. Add hockey into it and it just makes it better. 55
