“Find your next hockey hero in Sawyer Bennett’s Arizona Vengeance series.”—New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis
My name is Dax Monahan and hockey is my passion. And if you want to succeed in this sport you have to bust your ass 24/7. I’ve never had a hard time focusing on my career, but when my past comes knocking, no amount of training can prepare me for what lies on the other side of the door.
Regan Miles was always like a sister to me. When a shared tragedy brings us face to face after several years, I’m shocked to see just how much she’s changed. Gone is the shy, awkward little girl that always used to chase me and her brother around. Instead, I’m faced with a gorgeous woman who makes it damn hard to concentrate on anything but her.
Turns out, she’s in trouble, and the only way out is to get married.
I surprise myself when I tell her to marry me. Order her, actually. And most shocking of all, she doesn’t even hesitate before saying yes.
So it’s settled. We’re getting hitched and she’s moving to Arizona with me. All platonic, of course.
I never knew I’d fall so hard for my best friend’s little sister.

"That is, I am fairly sure I have fallen helplessly in love with my best friend's little sister. It sounds overly clichéd, yet incredibly right. I can only conclude that I have loved her in some form or fashion her entire life—"
It was so wonderful to see Dax fall, another #HockeyHottie manwhore down. Each book in the series builds my love for these characters. I'm already so gone for Tacker and can't wait for his story, and then I met Dax's sister in this one and she's so amazing. I've got a man picked out for her as well. So much to look forward to as the Arizona Vengeance series continues.
Dax has always been a hard-working 'player' who takes his hockey career very seriously. But, family comes first and when his best friend's little sister needs his help, he's there for her. What he didn't expect was how grown up she is. When did that happen? She's beautiful! The only solution to her problem is to get married. Surely can keep his hands to himself and keep it platonic...or maybe not. I had so much fun hoping he would fail in his attempt to keep himself in the #FriendZone.
I really really really enjoyed this #Friends2Lovers tale. I found myself cheering for the couple and the team. The characters just jumped off the page and made me feel like I was right there at the games and team parties. And I also love how the author touches on some serious topics and tugs on our heartstrings so beautifully as she lets her readers into the lives of the players. I'm not sure my poor heart will survive Tacker's story, but I can't wait to dive in. The line forms here...
