Reed (Cold Fury, Book #10)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: February 6, 2018


Hockey season may be over, but in New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett’s new novel, a Carolina Cold Fury heartbreaker is heating things up off the ice and eager to score with the girl next door.

No one skates like Reed Olson. In the off-season, no one plays like him either. After back-to-back championships, Reed craves a different kind of action. Good thing there’s no shortage of women ready for a summer fling with a sports star. Reed has a specific type-blond, busty, not too bright-and a little black book full of options. But when his bed starts rocking, it’s his unexpectedly sexy neighbor who comes knocking. And the brainy beauty is impossible to ignore.

Josie Ives desperately needs something her celebrity neighbor obviously doesn’t: sleep. His headboard banging against the wall is keeping her up at night-not to mention inspiring some very naughty dreams. Reed is everything she imagined: a little too good-looking, with a body that puts Greek gods to shame. But he’s also funny and charming-a tempting combination. Josie’s the opposite of his type, yet the chemistry between them is undeniable. Their friendship certainly has its benefits, and it’s heating up to be so much more.

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

Reed Olson and Josie Ives’ first interaction could not have been more perfect in an ‘I can’t believe this is happening way.’ Reed’s in the midst of his off-season screw fest with his ‘Barbie Brigade’ when Josie, a spirited ER Doc and Reed’s neighbor, has a few choice words for  Reed and the ‘Screaming Barbie’ that’s keeping her awake. From there, what follows is a mutually beneficial friendship that has both Reed and Josie attaching feelings to their casual arrangement.

I absolutley loved Josie. She’s sarcastic, intelligent, and honest and she calls Reed on his shit, which is a nice change of pace for Reed because he’s not used to anyone seeing past his built body and professional hockey player lifestyle. She’s a fantastic doctor and people are drawn to her simply because she’s sincere and unflappable.

Reed is the quintessential ‘player.’ The kind of guy who believes that one night stands are all he needs to be fulfilled, but he soon changes his perspective when Josie comes into his life and he can’t help but want to constantly be around her, on top of her and beneath her in every possible way.

Reed and Josie’s story is definitely light on the angst because even though they never really define what they are to each other, it’s clear that what they’ve developed is more than a casual arrangement and despite moments of self-doubt and overthinking, the fact that they can be truthful with one another and talk things through without overreacting, for the most part, allows them to workout any issues they have and realize that what they’ve built is everything they never knew they wanted and ultimately needed. 

Reed is a sweet and steamy read that illustrates just how good a relationship can become when it’s built on a foundation of friendship and how looking outside of one’s ‘stereotypical’ type can result in finding someone who ‘gets’ him/her in every way, proving that it takes more than just physical attraction to create something that can withstand busy schedules, a bit of jealousy, a past relationship, and the buxom and beautiful ‘Barbie Brigade.’
