Review - MAX by Sawyer Bennett

Google Play:

The ice is a cold mistress. As the league’s most eligible goalie, Max Fournier has access to his fair share of willing puck bunnies, but right now he’s more interested in bringing home another championship than a one-night stand. A romantic at heart, Max believes in love; he’s just not great at relationships. So when he finally meets a nice girl who’s not blinded by his celebrity, he’s feeling the heat—and the pressure to save her from herself.

Between working two jobs and raising her sister’s kids, Julianne Bradley doesn’t have time for sports—or men. All she knows about Max is that he’s the sexiest customer to ever grace her gas-station counter. And he sees past her tired eyes and makes Jules yearn for things she can’t have: a glamorous fling, a passionate lover, and the time to enjoy both. Max makes her feel like Cinderella, even though Jules has enough baggage to crush a glass slipper. Luckily, he’s no prince—only a fierce competitor determined to win her heart.

4 of 5 Stars

Max is the lead goalie for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team. Max is a really down to earth kind of guy, sure he is famous but he is really not about being in the spot light and hooking up with the next puck bunny. Max is looking for the one girl he can connect with and have a meaningful relationship. That's when he meets Julianne, she was working at a convenience store that he happened to stop at after practice one evening. Max saved her from a possible attack by two aggressive men.

She is working two jobs to try and make ends meet along with taking care of her sisters 3 children. He learns of her past and what she has had to take on and is captivated by her, yet they are from two different world's. Julianne is hesitant to start a relationship with Max as she is unsure what he sees in her, and she feels she does not have time for a relationship, but with much persistence Max wins her over. Can Julianne overcome her personal insecurities and those that the media portray her to be? Max sure hopes so...

I have completely enjoyed the entire Cold Fury Series and I can't wait to see what Sawyer has in store for us next..... If you haven't read the series yet, you will able to read Max and then go back and read the rest of the series without being lost.
