The ice is a cold mistress. As the league’s most eligible goalie, Max Fournier has access to his fair share of willing puck bunnies, but right now he’s more interested in bringing home another championship than a one-night stand. A romantic at heart, Max believes in love; he’s just not great at relationships. So when he finally meets a nice girl who’s not blinded by his celebrity, he’s feeling the heat—and the pressure to save her from herself.
Between working two jobs and raising her sister’s kids, Julianne Bradley doesn’t have time for sports—or men. All she knows about Max is that he’s the sexiest customer to ever grace her gas-station counter. And he sees past her tired eyes and makes Jules yearn for things she can’t have: a glamorous fling, a passionate lover, and the time to enjoy both. Max makes her feel like Cinderella, even though Jules has enough baggage to crush a glass slipper. Luckily, he’s no prince—only a fierce competitor determined to win her heart.

Oh Max - I think I maybe temporarily blinded to any other book heros after reading about the completely swoon worthy Max!
He's not perfect (hello snickers and Mt Dew), but he definitely gives Prince Charming a run for his money in this Cinderella meets hockey goalie story.
The latest installment of Ms. Bennett's Cold Fury series runs parallel to book 5, so there are a few potential spoilers if you are hoping to read the series in order, but nothing so crazy that it would ruin reading Hawke's book.
Like all of Ms. Bennett's books, this is well written and contains a healthy dose of sexy time. But, that's not the core of the story. The core of the story is relationship building and being smart enough to notice when fate puts the right person in your path.
Max got the message pretty quickly, but there were moments when the heroine, Jules, needed to get out of her own way.
I appreciated the strength Jules had in dealing with the issues life handed her and the fact that she didn't latch on the Max as a cure-all even when he wanted to be.
Overall, this was a fun, sweet book that I had a hard time putting down!
