Lucas (Cold Fury, Book #8)
Release Date: September 19, 2017
The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.
Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.
Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.
Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is back in full force. They are not only shredding the ice in the play offs, they are also shredding our hearts one player at a time. Sawyer Bennett has created a team of men that are melting the readers hearts and leaving them wanting more.
Lucas Fournier is thrilled to be a part of the Carolina Cold Fury team for many reasons, not only is he playing on the ice with his brother Max, he is also part of an exceptional hockey organization that believes in the importance of family as well as winning the cup. It’s a win win situation. Being one of the few single guys on the team is also a bonus, it’s a guarantee of more available ladies to choose from. He’s a single guy and has no intentions of settling down anytime soon. Let all the other players enjoy their family time while he reaps of the rewards as a single player. It all begins to change when he meets Stephanie Frazier at a museum benefit. He’s thrilled that he is available and that she wants a one night hook up with no strings attached. Best night of his life. Best sex he’s ever had. The sex was so good that he shredded the condom like he shreds the ice. He’s not overly concerned that the condom broke because Stephanie has the same mantra he has and is going to take the morning after pill. All is good and he wouldn’t mind another hook up with Stephanie but knows it will never happen. As I said all is good until Stephanie shows up one month later to inform him the morning after pill didn’t work and she’s definitely pregnant. Neither one of them wants to settle down. Neither one of them planned on becoming parents at this stage in their lives. Neither one of them is sure how to handle the situation but they are both sure they want this surprise baby.
Stephanie Frazier is a free spirit. She has focused on building her career and has no intentions of ever settling down. She’s happy with her single life and is fine with one night hook ups. Hooking up with Lucas Fournier was fun, thrilling, and the best sex she ever had. It was a night to remember and a night to never repeat. The morning after pill should of taken care of the condom mishap. As fate would have it, she’s the one in a few that the pill doesn’t work on. Now she’s facing becoming a mother and doesn’t have the first clue what to do. She has no concept of loving family relationships or nurturing parents. The one thing she is sure of is that she wants this baby no matter what Lucas Fournier does. To her complete surprise Lucas is on board with having the baby and co parenting. He’s willing to help out in any manner and is extremely supportive of her choices. She’s not sure what to do with that because she’s never had anybody put her needs first.
Max and Stephanie begin as tentative friends trying to maneuver their way into the parenting role. Their sexual chemistry is through the roof and they both have a healthy sexual appetite. The problem is neither one of them knows how to be in a relationship. As time goes by Lucas wants more than Stephanie is willing to give. Stephanie is frightened of all the emotions being around Lucas brings into her life. She’s pushing Lucas away and Lucas is pushing harder.
Sawyer Bennett once again delivered another win for the Cold Fury Hockey Series. The play offs are just beginning and there are some key players wanting their time to play on the Cold Fury pages.
