ISHO SummaryThe rugged men of the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team are winning hearts once again in another scorching novel from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett.

The stakes have never been higher for Carolina Cold Fury goalie Ryker Evans. With his contract running out, he’s got a year left to prove he’s still at the top of his game. And since his wife left him, Ryker has been balancing life as a pro-hockey star and a single parent to two daughters. Management is waiting for him to screw up. The fans are ready to pounce. Everybody’s taking dirty shots—except for the fiery redhead whose faith in Ryker gives him a fresh start.

As the league’s only female general manager, Gray Brannon has learned not to mix business with pleasure. And yet even this tough, talented career woman can’t help breaking her own rules as she gives Ryker everything she’s got. She hopes their hot streak will last forever, but with Ryker’s conniving ex plotting to reclaim her man, the pressure’s on Gray to step up and save a tender new love before it’s too late.

isho-my-opinion2This series has been so great that I was dying to get my hands on Ryker.  Of course, Sawyer Bennett did not disappoint.

In the previous book, Zack, we were introduced to Ryker, the new goalie for the Cold Fury. This book picks up a short time after the other left off.  Recently divorced and now having custody of his two daughters he’s adjusting to being on a new team and having to prove that he’s at the top of his game.

Enter Gray Brannon, the new GM for the Cold Fury.  Not only is she dealing with being the only female general manager in the league, but she’s also dealing with skepticism on her methods in running the team.

The attraction between Ryker and Gray is pretty much instantaneous. Unfortunately, they have to deal with Ryker’s ex who has decided she wants him back as well as the people who aren’t exactly on board with Gray running the team.  Add to that, the threat of having their relationship revealed and risking both of their careers.  I loved Ryker and Gray together.  I loved the way they handled all the obstacles in their way.

This might very well be my favourite book of the series, not to mention it’s my favourite cover in the series. [Note:  that’s saying a lot seeing as each cover is hot hot hot!]  That said, I am definitely looking forward to the next book.  I gave Ryker five very hot and steamy lattés with some extra foam on top.
