From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett comes a new story in her Arizona Vengeance series…
I was living my dream until one phone call changed everything.
As the second line center for the Arizona Vengeance, my mind has been on one thing—helping my team bring home a championship. But that all changed when I found out my dad had cancer and only months to live. In that moment, nothing mattered more than getting home to North Carolina to be by his side. That meant asking for the unthinkable—a trade to the Carolina Cold Fury.
Now I’m home and when I’m not on the ice with my new team, I’m helping care for my dad. And in the midst of my grief, I find comfort from the one person I never expected.
Calliope Ramirez stole my heart at a very young age. The beautiful, smart, headstrong girl next door, she was my first… everything. She has never forgiven me for leaving her, believing that I chose hockey over a future together. What she doesn’t understand is that every decision I made was for her, and I’ve never given up hope that one day we’d be together again.
Watching my dad slip away is a harsh reminder of how short life can be, and having Callie by my side makes me realize I was a damn fool before. That changes starting right now. Calliope Ramirez is mine and I’m not going to waste the second chance that I’ve been given.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
* * I HAD BEEN GIVEN AN ADVANCE READERS COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR MY HONEST REVIEW * *
I have always loved the franchise series that Sawyer Bennett puts out, and this one little tidbit of awesome is so packed full of everything I love about the full length books that you don’t feel like you are walking away missing things, and that’s how I feel about most, not all, novellas I read.
The emotions portrait in this book are 100% real and raw and it will put tears in your eyes. It does not feel like the love of Rafe and Calliope is rushed out forced. That it feels like it is Intune with all the other emotions and factors that are going along in this book.
It is heartfelt and there are some bigger lessons to learn in this one. You also get a small peek at a few characters from Cold Fury, so it makes we wonder if it should be a half and half series novella, but I digress.
I do recommend if you want to read a love filled emotional tear jerker of a book!
