Stone by Sawyer Bennett ~ New Release & Review

Stone (Pittsburgh Titans, Book 2) Sawyer Bennett Release Date: March 1, 2022



Minor league player Stone Dumelin lost his younger brother when the Titans’ team plane went down. He never expected the phone call that followed. After a shoulder injury put my NHL career on ice, I resigned myself to the fact I’d never see my way out of the minor league again. As my career faded, my estranged brother’s star shot into orbit as the first line left winger for the Pittsburgh Titans. But when the team’s plane crashed returning home one night, his light was snuffed out, and I was given the opportunity of a lifetime. Now I’m in Pittsburgh, playing for the Titans, and face-to-face with my dead brother’s ghost at every turn. His locker, his legacy, his persistent and annoyingly gorgeous attorney who won’t stop contacting me about his estate, even though I’ve demanded she leave me alone. Harlow Alston would be extremely appealing if she wasn’t so aggravating. Only…that’s a complete lie. She pushes all the right buttons for me, and as much as I want her to quit pestering me about Brooks’s estate, I find myself intrigued by the fiery redhead who can’t take no for an answer. And the more I learn about Harlow, the more I find she might be the key to understanding who Brooks really was, and who I want to be. I’ve got a second shot at a career I thought I’d lost and the opportunity to build something real with Harlow, but can I find strength to move forward or will my past dictate my future?

Review Copy Provided by Author

In Stone, we return to the world of the Pittsburgh Titans as they continue to rebuild after tragedy. Main character Stone, is someone we met in book one of this series (Baden) and based on his appearance there, I wasn't sure how I felt about him being the leading man here.

I should have known that Ms Bennett would take care of us and give us a hero worth rooting for! When we meet Stone, he has just found out about the death of his brother along with the rest of the Titans team. I appreciated the journey that Stone took as he figured out how to deal with his grief, his familiy struggles, and finding his place on the new Titans team.

He is paired with Harlow and I loved this leading lady! She is the perfect example of how things can look perfect, but may not be, and the strength it take to put yourself first and be the best you that you can.

Stone and Harlow together are magic. She is the window that he needed to start navigating all of the emotions swirling around - I don’t want to give anything away, so you have to read to get more than that. I will say that I appreciated her grace and openness.

This is a book about a hockey team, so a lot of the secondary cast are other players. Ms Bennet does an excellent job of balancing the continued world building of the Titans without overwhelming us with people to keep track of. I have to admit that my favorite secondary character didn’t have a single line in the book, Harlow’s dog, Odin!

Having met Baden and Stone, plus seeing a bit more of other players, I am excited to see where the Titan series goes next!
