Garrett

ISHO SummaryCarolina 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.

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. Having read and loved Alex, the first book in this series, I was very excited to get started on this one.

I first met Garrett in Alex’s book.  He was the hot, sexy, womanizing best friend.  Of course, the biggest of womanizers eventually meet their match and Garrett is no exception.  He meets Olivia at a party and he’s never the same. [Can I just say that I love it when this happens?] Olivia is unlike other women he’s met and he can’t stop thinking about her.

Olivia, on the other hand, at first is not up for his womanizing ways but taking into account her health issues, decides to have some fun.  A bit of fun turns into more than she bargained for.  Garrett turns out to be loving, adoring and wanting to be there for her as she’s going through treatment for her illness.

Throw into the mix Olivia’s best friend Stevie.  He’s funny and flamboyant –  a great secondary character!  Also, this book introduced Zack who’s heartbreaking story will be featured in the next Cold Fury Hockey book.  I can’t wait!

I really enjoyed this book. Their journey was sweet and charming with a lot of sexy thrown in.  I gave this four cups of java with a warning: contents hot!

What I’m Currently Reading:

The Story of Me (Carnage Book 2) by Lesley Jones

After reading the first book (see “What I recently read” below) I couldn’t wait.  I had to see what happens next to Georgia.  I’m really loving this series.  WARNING:  Tissue is definitely required while you read.

What I recently read:

The Story of Us (Carnage Book 1) by Lesley Jones

WOW!  My good friend Jen has been telling me to read this for a long while now.  I’m not gonna lie.  I was afraid to read it.  It sounded like the angst level would be off the charts. I finally decided to bite the bullet and read it.  I loved it!  My heart hurt like a mofo after reading it but I still recommend it.  I love a book that makes me feel and this one did it again and again.

What I hope to read next:

Garrett by Sawyer Bennett

I really am going to read this next.  I SWEAR! I can’t wait to.  I got a glimpse of Garrett in the previous book in the series, Alex. I just know I’m going to love it. Who doesn’t love a sexy hockey player?

I’d love to know what your W…W…W… are.
