Dax (Arizona Vengeance, Book #4)
Release Date: July 9, 2019
The Arizona Vengeance is killing it on the ice. But one player can’t seem to keep his eye on the puck—all thanks to the woman he just married to save her life.
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.
THIS STORY …. *swoon*
There are so many aspects of this story that pleased me.
First, the organic way Dax just fell over himself for Regan. He hadn’t seen her in years. He wasn’t harboring a secret crush on her for years. He just came to her rescue in the way that he did because it’s just who he was, without a thought for himself. He jumped. And that made me swoon from page one. And the progression from helping her to being her one and only didn’t feel insta in the least. Yes, the attraction was instant, she is after all a beautiful woman, but it didn’t come across like that. I have to give Sawyer mad props for pulling this off as beautifully as she did.
Second, the way Regan’s health issues were dealt with. If it’s one thing I can count on is that Sawyer Bennett does her research. Yes, you’d think this would be the case for all writers but alas, not so much. But it’s not just that she immerses herself in the subject matter but that she also depicts the situation correctly and with respect.
From the day I read my first book written by Sawyer many years ago, I have never even been tempted not to one-click every single book she publishes. And her skill gets better and better as the books keep coming. I cannot recommend this author enough AND this book.
Now …. for the love of all that is holy can someone please tell me who is going to be the lucky woman (or man) to save Tacker from himself
Perfection…that’s the only word that comes to mind after finishing this amazing story.
I loved Dax and his relationship with Regan. This story was funny, with little drama and a whole lot of hot, steamy and lovey (not sure if this is a word but OK) moments. Together they made so much sense. I loved his way of looking out for her. As someone who has a disease that can suck all the fun out of life I could relate to Regan on so many levels and I loved Dax even more for wanting to do everything he could to keep her healthy.
I’m a newbie when it comes to Sawyer Bennett’s and I can’t believe it took me THIS long to start read her but that changes right now!! I absolutely loved these two and would highly recommend this book to anyone 😍

About the Author:
Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.
A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.
Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.
Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.
