Coen ~ Sawyer Bennett ~ New Release & Review

Coen: A Pittsburgh Titans Novel Sawyer Bennett Release Date: September 27, 2022


Read the first THREE chapters of Coen

Coen Highsmith was a league star, but he lost more than his team the day the Pittsburgh Titans’ plane crashed. Can he be saved from his downward spiral of guilt and regret to become the man he once was? I had it all—a successful hockey career, the respect and adoration of the fans, a rotation of beautiful women warming my bed, and a feeling of self-worth and contentment with the direction of my life. But that all changed the day the team plane went down, taking my only chance of redemption with it. Now I’m left with the daily reminder of all my failures and my inability to correct them. My new teammates are tired of my attitude and following my suspension, I hole up in a mountain cabin to get away from all of it. The isolation is exactly what I need to get out of my own head, and I’m beginning to think I could be content in this quiet forever. Tillie Marshall isn’t the type of woman who would usually catch my attention, yet she manages to do so for all the wrong reasons. I’m here for the peace and seclusion but the quirky artist is hell-bent on destroying that by cutting down the trees that separate our properties so she can open a pottery studio. If it’s a fight she wants, it’s a fight she’ll get. I have the money and the time and no issues bringing her down through the court system. While I see flashes of steely determination within her, I’ve found that being a jerk comes naturally these days and she won’t be hard to intimidate. Unfortunately, that gorgeous and somewhat odd neighbor who has been causing me grief is creating another type of feeling within me. And once that spark is lit, Tillie displays a faith in me that for the first time since the crash I desperately want to believe. Now it’s time for me to step up and become the man—no, a better man than I once was.

Review Copy Provided by Author

Coen is the 4th book of the Titans series and the title character has been someone we've seen in various secondary roles in the previous three books. Having this back story and knowing a little bit of who he is made me curious to read his story and Ms Bennett did not disappoint!

I appreciated that Ms Bennett approached Coen's emotional state head on. She opened things up and let us see inside his head and heart as he deals with the prolonged aftermath of tragedy. While his approach may not be the healthiest, it was honest, and thankfully his safety net never got the hint to go away.

Tilden (Tillie) is a great counter point and love interest for Coen. While they had a rough start, I think she had a element of personality that he needed. I genuinely liked her and found her inner strength to be appealing. She's someone who I would love to have as a friend.

Combine these great character with Coen's emotional and career evolutions and this is a definite winner of a book. Techinally, this is a stand alone book and in terms of other characters Coen's story is fairly independent. But..... given the emotional baggage coming with Coen, this is a book that works better if the other books in the series are read first. I really hope we see more of the Titans in the future.... and hopefully Coen will sneak in too.
