Release Blitz: Erik b Sawyer. Bennett

Erik: An Arizona Vengeance Novel
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: November 5, 2018


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 Arizona Vengeance will continue in 2019! CLICK HERE to see the whole series, including preorder links and the brand spanking new cover for Dax (Book #4).

Review by Trinette Dungee

Erik Dahlbeck can have any women he wants except the one he really wants. Flight attendant, Blue, wouldn’t toss a glass of water on him if he were on fire, she’d probably throw a little gasoline, and everyone knows that but no one knows the reason. Erik’s obsession with learning why Blue hates him so much actually works in his favor; as he learns more and more about her he realizes that she really could be “the one”. 
Blue Gardner has a lot on her plate; she’s the sole provider for her younger disabled brother and she’s got bills to pay. The last think she needs is a playboy like Erik Dahlbeck in her life. His reputation proceeds him and the fact that he doesn’t remember that they actually met before is not helping his case. 
This is book number two in the Arizona Vengeance Series and so far Mrs. Bennett is two for two with this new series. We first met Erik and Blue in book one, in Bishop’s and Brook’s story and I remember thinking then that I really wanted the story of these two because they intrigued the hell out of me. I loved both characters. I like Blue because she seemed so real, like someone you could actually get to know. At one point she decided to forgive Erik for his past transgressions and be friends.  While she’s trying to work the friendship angle, Erik is trying to move to the relationship angle. 
There were times when Blue would bring up the past and I kind of felt like she was taking stabs and being passive-aggressive. I mean, you said you forgave the guy so move on already. Of course, it becomes clear that Blue’s afraid of having her heart broken; more importantly, she’s afraid a relationship with Erik will take her back to being the person she didn’t really like being. 
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at Erik, he shed the playboy image in record speed and became a one-woman-man for Blue. He’s a sensitive soul and when discovers everything Blue has on her plate,  he truly wants to help her and make her life easier.
While there wasn’t a lot of witty banter in this book, it was full of passion and I don’t mean the sexual kind (although that was present too); it was the kind of passion that meant they should be together; they just had to both get on the same page. 

This was a quick read, it probably could be finished in one day,  but it was really well written. As usual,  there are supporting characters that grab your attention; there’s Tacker who I can’t wait to read about and Dax, but I have a suspicion that the next book will be about Legend and Pepper. (Pepper sounds like a firecracker).
