Lucas (Cold Fury, Book #8) 


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.

My Lucas Review . . .

Lucas Fournier is Max's little brother and finally they're playing on the same team.  For Lucas he loves the single life.  He has no reason for being tied down.   He's happy for Max but he doesn't think that's for him right now in his life. 

Stephanie Frazier is a strong, independent woman, who knows what she wants.  She's fun loving and easy going and the last thing she wants is a relationship.  She's all for fun loving and no commitments.  So, when she meets Lucas she's all over that one night stand.   And this one night stand turns into so much more.

We quickly realize that there is a reason for Stephanie's easiness with no relationships and its because she's got a ton of baggage. 

" . . . But you stand to lose him if you can't take a little bit of a risk with your heart. "
Luc may have been surprised with the outcome with their one night but he's a loyal man with a big heart and will always do the right thing.

Stephanie may be hesitant with commitment but she's okay with friends with benefits.   Luc's on board with this plan but hopes for more.

"Stephanie, just because I think you have the potential to hurt my son doesn't mean I don't like you.  And just because you have the potential to hurt my son doesn't mean you're not good for him."
Stephanie had a hard road learning to love herself and finding herself worthy of love.

"I feel sorry for you, Steph.  And I feel sorry for our kid. I sure hope to shit you learn how to really love before that baby comes along, or you're going to fuck its life the way your parents fucked up yours."
Oh Boy! Poor Steph, this was not an easy journey but so worth it in the end.  I normally don't like whiny heroines and Stephanie wasn't whiny per se but her baggage was heavy and at times tiresome for her stubbornness on not moving forward.   Unfortunately Steph's baggage was a large part of the story and I wanted more than just this but in the end I did quite like story and I adore all the boys of the Cold Fury.

3 Baggage filled thumbs up!
