Steele (Arizona Vengeance, Book #9) Sawyer Bennett Release Date: December 8, 2020
A second chance may be just what James Steele needs… I might be one of the older players on the Arizona Vengeance, but I like to think that also makes me one of the wisest. Or at least I used to. Turns out, I’ve been a bit selfish. I’ve been married to hockey and my team for years, which hasn’t left much time for my actual wife, Ella. Now I’m juggling a separation I never wanted, the pressure of being a single dad to our teenage daughter, and the career I sacrificed it all for. While my game on the ice might be on fire, the game in my personal life is clearly lacking, as evidenced by the fact I just saw my wife on a date with another man. If I have any hope of saving the family I love, I need to re-prioritize, and fast. So it’s time for me to get back to fundamentals, just like I did when I learned how to play hockey. I’ve never backed down from a challenge, and romancing my wife is a challenge I am very much looking forward to. Time to put on my game face, because I’m in it to win it.

I was a little nervous going into Steele - I love the Vengeance series and wasn’t sure how a second chance for a married couple would fit into the team. I should have known that Ms Bennett wouldn’t let me down.
Part of what had me nervous was - why did Jim (Steele) and Ella separate in the first place? I won’t spoil anything by answering that question, but I will say once I understood the answer, so much made sense and I was 100% rooting for this couple to figure things out.
Ms Bennett does an excellent job of painting the picture of the work required to keep a marriage (or any relationship) going after the first heady days fade into years. I appreciated the swift kick Jim received and the introspection that started as a result. Jim and Ella both did some growing separately, but together as well.
This was a sweet and entertaining addition to the Vengeance series. Loyal readers will be thrilled to see the “first” line of the team make cameos as well seeing more of the “second” line who hopefully will have books soon.
