Review: Garrett by Sawyer Bennett

New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett hits the ice with the story of a playboy athlete whose winning ways lead him to a beautiful woman with a lot to lose.
Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.

Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.


Garrett was another great book in the Cold Fury Hockey Series! I would give this book a 4.5 stars!  I absolutely couldn't wait for this book to be released because I loved Garrett in the first book Alex he was the hilariously hot ladies man who was a friend of Alex and they were teammates on the Cold Fury.   Garrett put a new meaning to a sexy as hell hockey player for me.. he topped Alex which I never thought would be possible because I seriously loved him too!  This series needs to be shared with anyone that will listen because damn it is off the charts smoking hot!  On a more serious note this story will also pull at your heart strings because there is a tragedy, but it was so worth the pulling because this book will sit with me for a long time.

Garrett is your typical one night stand kind of guy.  He has been known to do maybe a second and third date but only so he can get in the girls pants that are shy at first.  When he meets Olivia his best friends Alex's fiance's cousin Olivia his world will get turned upside down.

Yes, that is a major, major event because Mr. One-night stand is going in for the request for a second date.  And I'm nervous as shit, because I don't know if what I've shown here tonight would warrant here wanting to see me again.  I'm used to treating a woman to a nice meal and then finishing off the evening with an orgasm or two.  I might even stay the night for a little cuddling, a bit of pillow talk, and maybe even another orgasm.  But then I'm gone and she's forgotten.  I have no illusions... I'm sure I'm forgotten as well, because woman want more than I can give and when I leave them far behind, I'm sure they are out on the hunt again for the guy who can give them what they truly need.-- Garrett

Olivia is dealing with a tragedy in her life and doesn't have time for any distractions.  When she meets Garrett at a get together she doesn't know what it is about him that she likes, well other than he is gorgeous but there is just something about him.  She refuses to let her self be with him because what she has going on he doesn't need to be apart of it... when she finds out that he is the one night stand kind of guy she will change her mind because maybe they can just have one amazing night and all will be great...yeah that doesn't happen... when they both get so lost in each other and her secret comes out Garrett is willing to try and make it work but Olivia decides its too much and will push him away.... 

Can these 2 find a way of leaning on each other for support or will Garrett's career the only thing he has ever loved come between them?  Or will it be Olivia's tragedy that will finally seal there fate?

Go get these books now!  You will fall in love with Alex and Garrett....and I can't wait for Zack's story!!!!  Thanks again Sawyer for an amazing journey so far and I look forward to so much more in the future!
